Comments: Will & Grace VS Christianity?

Christians will always lose in this game. If we protest, the networks will get attention and many more people will watch. If we do nothing, then the networks will get more brazen.

I suppose the best way to protest is to boycott, as you suggest. Imagine if every Christian household stopped watching those networks. Too bad Christians seem to need their "fix" too.

You're right. The best way to get one's message across in instances like these is through the boycott of the product. Money usually wins out over principle in the entertainment world, as much as they'd like us to think they're so high-minded.

what's with the big stick christians have up their asses?

great movie quote:

"you know what i'm going to get you next christmas? a big wooden cross, so that everytime you feel unappreciated for your sacrifices, you can climb on up and nail yourself to it."

haha.

steve;

Thanks for your insightful input.

Pam's post highlighted the reactions of offended Christians and Jews vs. the reactions of offended Muslims.

Another blogger noted that Kanye West didn't have the courage to appear on Rolling Stone as Mohammed. Wonder why?

Of course there are occasional religious figures that draw satire by their excesses, but some of this goes beyond satire focused on human frailties.

kanye didn't appear on the cover of rolling stone as mohammed because his album wasn't entitled "mohammed walks" it was entitled "JESUS walks."

he appeared as jesus on the cover because the lyric to his song is "they said i could rap about anything except for JESUS."

make more sense now?

That may be so; regardless, you fail to get the point of my post. I don't care if you think Christians are lame for being offended. My point was to compare the way they are expressing their displeasure versus how the Muslims are expressing their displeasure over cartoons of Muhammed.

Also, please refrain from profanity or I'll block you. Disagree all you'd like, but keep it clean.
