New TV Show Idea: All-American Christian
I have a great idea! How about a TV show titled "All-American Christian"? Christians have been getting a bum rap in cinema and the mainstream media for quite a while. In a spirit of fairness, compassion, and tolerance, a TV show promoting Christianity is simply the right thing to do. After all, the last thing we need is Christian-phobic Americans.
We must educate Americans to realize that Christianity is a religion of peace. Christians are not anti-American. The TV show will confirm that Christians are not very different from you and me, and they're just as patriotic. Also, Christians would never attempt to force Biblical law down our throats.
Now, where can I find fair-minded, tolerant, and compassionate celebrities who will enthusiastically support and speak in defense of the show? I know! Russell Simmons, Bill Maher, and Rosie O'Donnell are a good start. These guys are all about fairness, tolerance, and compassion. I am extremely confident that they will leap at an opportunity to fairly portray Christianity.
Christians are not rioting, seeking to physically punish offenders, or lobbying to make it illegal to speak against their religion. Thus, beheading non-believers who reject their religion is not in the Christian recruitment manual. As a matter of fact, the founder of Christianity said, "With loving kindness have I drawn thee."
Rosie O'Donnell, great advocate of women rights that she is, will surely love this. Christian women are not forced to be subservient to men. Under no circumstances does Christianity condone a husband beating, stoning, or beheading his wife. A Christian woman is pretty much free to be all she can be, from a mom to the governor of Alaska to president of the United States. Believe it or not, a Christian woman can even venture outside without having her head covered and face veiled. Thus, it makes perfect sense that the American Feminist Movement would rally around Christianity. Right?
I cannot think of a single group of people Christians seek to remove from the planet. While more than 18,167 deadly terrorist attacks since 9-11 have been carried out in the name of another religion, zero attacks since 9-11 have happened in the name of Christianity. We know that the American left is all about peace; "all we are saying is give peace a chance," and so on. One can only conclude that Christianity's nonviolent track record wins the peace-lovers' endorsement. Correct?
Unfortunately, Christianity does not have a "lying clause." Another religion has a privilege authorized in its holy book called "taqiyya," which means never feeling guilty for lying. In other words, taqiyya makes it permissible to lie to protect one's religion. Common sense tells us that anything adherents of such a religion say about the intentions and motives of their religion should be taken with a grain of salt. Meanwhile, Christians are stuck with "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor."
It is truly tragic that Bibles, after-school Bible studies, and prayer at school sporting events are being banned from public schools. Christian graduates are commanded to censor all references to God and especially "Jesus" from their commencement speeches. And yet, nationwide special concessions are being made for another religion -- installing foot-bathing facilities, etc.
By the way, our government has sponsored the defacing of Christian icons. A photo of a crucifix submerged in a glass of urine was funded by the NEA (National Endowment of the Arts). The award-winning photo is titled "Piss Christ." The Brooklyn Museum of Art, despite considerable controversy, exhibited the Holy Virgin Mary painted with elephant dung.
Christians are legally fighting the court-ordered removal of crosses which have been displayed -- one out in the middle of nowhere -- on sites for many years. Nativity scenes are becoming more and more taboo in public schools and government buildings. Our kids no longer go on Christmas break from school. It is now called Winter Fest-a-Something or Other.
Some paranoid conspiracy theorists say that Christianity has infiltrated high levels of our government. Rumor has it that even President Obama is a Christian. However, this rumor has yet to be confirmed. I wish to go on record stating that I am not Christian-phobic. America was unarguably founded on Biblical principles. Therefore, I am completely comfortable with Christians influencing our government.
We can count on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to aggressively work to make Christian-phobia punishable by law the way she is for another religion.
So yes, the timing is perfect for an "All-American Christian" TV show. I am sure that Hillary; Obama; and all those compassionate, tolerant Hollywood-types will enthusiastically join in our effort to get out the truth about Christianity -- a virtuous, misunderstood, and wonderful religion of peace.
Folks, this is gonna be great! I am so excited. For the debut of the "All-American Christian" TV show, I wonder if we can get Tim Tebow to make a special guest appearance. Wouldn't that be awesome?
