While millions of Muslims are up in arms over the Pope's statement regarding the prophet Mohammed and his links with jihad, millions of Christians are indifferent as NBC decides whether it will air Madonna's blasphemous debacle on national television. Madonna was upbraided earlier in the year for her new act, in which she hangs on a cross in mockery of the Lord Jesus Christ. NBC is planning to broadcast the show in November, but hasn't yet decided whether they will air the scene of Madonna's crucifixion.
Quote: "Kevin Reilly, an executive at NBC, told reporters that the rock star considered the mockery the highlight of her show. "We (NBC) viewed it and didn't see it as being inappropriate," he said in a report on AFA's website, which also contains a request for Christians to contact the network or their local NBC affiliate.
Let's face it, since when did any broadcasting corporation (BBC - Jerry Springer: The Opera, Channel 4 - Swingers, Sugar Rush, etc) abide by any moral code? NBC will show this blasphemy if they can get away with it, as ratings are big money and controversy sells. Only financial pressure will achieve any results, and that means as many people as possible complaining, and if necessary boycotting the station. The BBC and OfCom ignored the pleas of 60,000 Christians in the UK - including my own, but if American's keep silent this will be perceived by NBC as Christian approval of this madness.
Quote: "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.
Christ was put to an open shame on the cross for us. Are we too ashamed to stand up for Him?
