There You Go Again, NBC

While Europe cowers after the publication of some Muhammed-mocking cartoons and the Mid-East erupts in the Cartoon Intifada, what's happening in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave?

NBC to mock the Crucifixion of Christ

NBC, fresh from giving us the anti-Christian "The Book of Daniel," has decided to hit back at the Christian community by presenting an episode of "Will and Grace" which mocks the crucifixion of Christ. On the April 13 edition of NBC's "Will and Grace," Britney Spears will appear as a Christian conservative sidekick to Sean Hayes' homosexual character, Jack, who hosts his own talk show. To further denigrate Christianity, NBC chose to air it the night before Good Friday. Jack's fictional network, Out TV, is bought by a Christian TV network, leading to Spears contributing a cooking segment called "Crucifixin's."

Just for the recond, I do not plan to burn down NBC studios in Burbank or to call the deaths of the producers of Will and Grace. I just plan to not watch it, which I never have.

Britney Spears is out of the kitchen. NBC will not include a scene featuring a cooking segment titled “Crucifixin's” on an upcoming episode of “Will & Grace” that will guest star singer Britney Spears as a Christian conservative sidekick to openly gay character Jack.

The American Family Association had targeted the network after NBC sent out a press release that included the storyline for Ms. Spears’s guest appearance: “Out TV,” the fictional network that airs Jack’s “Jack Talk” program, is bought by a Christian TV network, and Ms. Spears’ character is brought on to be Jack’s new religious co-host. She introduces a cooking segment on the show called “Cruci-fixin’s.”

Yesterday NBC said it never even intended to shoot a scene in an upcoming April episode of "Will & Grace" in which guest star Britney Spears hosts a cooking show called "Cruci-fixins." What's more, such a scene had never even been written, NBC claimed.

Odd, since it was NBC that initially boasted of the comedic send up - a boast that brought down the enmity and boycott power of the ultraconservative American Family Association.

Enjoy, Ron
