It’s time, once again, to play Hollywood’s favorite game – "Slam the Christians".It appears from the article "What Would Britney Do?" that the latest salvo from the Hollywood "gay mafia" is to cast Britney Spears (a.k.a. "the pop tart" or "role model for teenage girls") as a conservative Christian talk-show host. Can’t wait to see if they’re going to:
- "frump her up" with long skirt, bulky sweater, and glasses (i.e., Hollywood’s view of conservative Christians) and then it’s up to the gay duo (Jack and Will) to do a make-over on her, or
- if they’re gonna to try to trap her in some contrived catch-22 that makes it look like Christians hate gays or
- make the gays look intellectually superior to Christians.
.*** UPDATE – February 01 8:07 PM ***Jack’s fictional network, Out TV, is bought by a Christian TV network, leading to Spears contributing a cooking segment called "Cruci-fixin’s." To further denigrate Christianity, NBC chose to air it the night before Good Friday.
There appears to be a couple of new updates to this, as well as a new game being played: "Spin the Christians".
The first, from "NBC Spears Britney’s ‘Will & Grace’ Story Line", not only makes it appear that the contents of the episode to be shown were erroneously announced by a "trigger-happy publicist" (In other words, "We got caught before we got a chance to do our damage."), but that the episode has not even been written yet. The statement by NBC is as follows:
Some erroneous information was mistakenly included in a press release describing an upcoming episode of Will & Grace, which, in fact, has yet to be written. The reference to ‘Cruci-fixins’ will not be in the show and the storyline will not contain a Christian characterization at all. We value our viewers and sincerely regret if this misinformation has offended them.
The second article, "NBC’s ‘Cruci-fixins’ Were ‘Leftovers’ from Fox." According to this article, the term ‘Cruci-fixins’ has been around for a while, going from "Advertising Age" magazine to "The Simpsons" to "Arrested Development". Essentially, "everybody else was doing it, it must be okay, so we did it too." Aside from being an example of poor logic, as well as demonstrating a lack of creativity at NBC (which can be seen by its ratings slide over the past couple of years), it still doesn’t change the fact that they were going to do this and air it on Holy Thursday – the day that Judas was paid 30 pieces of silver to help destroy Jesus.
I wonder how much Britney Spears, the Will & Grace writers, and the NBC executives are getting paid.
