I received an email from a friend put out by the American Family Association. Here is an excerpt:
NBC, Madonna Set To Mock The Crucifixion of Christ
Following the lead of Rosie O'Donnell and ABC, NBC has decided to join in the bashing of Christians by airing a Madonna special in November. A specific date has not been released.
In the show, Madonna, wearing a fake crown of thorns, descends on a suspended mirrored, disco ball-type cross. When some Christian leaders complained about the mockery, NBC ignored their concerns.
If you would like to see a video clip of it go here.
The AFA has a petition started to send to NBC. They are trying to get 1 million signatures to try and convince NBC to not air this show.
Am I going to call NBC or pass the petition around for signatures? Probably not. It does offend my senses as a Christian but I will show my dislike for it by chosing to not watch it if it does air.
Should you call or sign the petition? That is up to you.
I think Madonna thrives on shock value and this is another one of her pathetic attempts to do something new and shocking to keep her career going. I think it is plain tacky but am strong enough in my faith that I don't feel I need to convince NBC to not air it.
What are your feelings about this? Feel free to talk amongst yourselves.
