    Turn the TV on on Sunday. Plenty of TV evangelists that are adamant that 'god' wants each of them to have a new jet and a Mercedes that is paid for by the last of some elderly persons savings.

    I guess that is more Satanist TV come to think of it.

    If you have the time, and don't mind a show that pokes fun at some of the religious stereotypes, Living Biblically is a fairly decent show so far.

    I find it funny that he's being advised by both a priest and a rabbi.

    A Christian show wouldn't have openly mocked the idea of living biblically, dumbshit.

    Kevin (Probably) Saves the World is not a Christian show. I enjoy it, but it is not Christian.

    Maybe 40%, those who actually attend church, should be counted, but yes, it's still a large demographic. They really should start shoving back; if they don't these left wingers and PC Nazis will literally start shoving them into ovens. In many Muslim countries and Red China, they're already being forcibly used as the primary sources for organ legging businesses, and without even the use of anesthetics.

    Given the wide variety of sects of the Christian faith in this country, many of which believe in squabbling with each other as to what the Christian faith actually believes and means, I think that it would be difficult, if not impossible, to come up with one script that would satisfy everyone, let alone do it every week. Just within Christianity itself, the faith means so many different things to so many different people and these views can be radically different. Just saying "Christian" is meaningless.

    I don't watch much TV now, but many of the shows I did like, Criminal Minds, Crossing Jordan, Hill Street Blues, had several representations of religion. Going any further than portraying a character as having a "faith moment" like these shows did would probably just lead to complaints from those who feel that their version of the faith was not adequately represented or was represented but did not come out the "winner."

    All of this complaining about Hollywood is a bunch of hooey. It's just a gnashing of teeth. There is a pretty wide selection coming out of it. The Best Picture line-up seemed pretty good. If you want to add to the selection, raise some money (there seems to be plenty out there), get a decent script, a good producer, a good director, and decent actors and go for it.

    In tonight's show, the priest and the rabbi are going to tell him that he spends too much time on his smart phone, and is turning it into an idol.
