Daniel

So I watched 'The Book of David,' and I really don't understand why everyone's getting their knickers in such a twist. It was a good show - not a great show - but I think it has a lot of potential. And the message seemed really nice.

Of course, it's always about the gays.

Two more stations have cancelled NBC's "The Book of Daniel" bringing the total to four.

KAMR-TV in Amarillo, Texas, and WTVA-TV in Tupelo, Mississippi each said they were bowing to community demands to drop the series which features one of primetime's few openly gay male characters, has a lesbian supporting character and is written by a gay screenwriter.

"The Book of Daniel" stars Aidan Quinn (“An Early Frost”) as the Reverend Daniel Webster an unconventional Episcopalian minister who not only believes in Jesus - he actually sees him and discusses life with him. [link]


I've begun to wonder if we should feel proud that we take up so much of right-wing conservative America's time. If they're worrying about gay sex, they can't go sticking their noses in other business. That's gotta count for something.

Perhaps it's just because the show has gays AND Jesus. It implies Jesus is tolerant of the gays. Lord forbid we have Jesus endorse the gays.
