NBC Doesn’t Find Madonna Crucifixion inappropriate During TV Concert … Do you? Religious Double Standard?
It would seem the networks find little inappropriate these days by what in on TV programming. According to The Drudge Report, NBC has given the green light to include “Madonna-on-the-Cross footage in an upcoming November Sweeps concert special”.
NBC suit Kevin Reilly said Madonna considered the crucifixion a highlight of her show. “We viewed it and didn’t see it as being inappropriate,” NBC explained.
NBC, besides being inappropriate, its also offensive. But what does NBC care of mocking Christianity. There is an open season on networks criticizing Christianity. Think NBC would have allowed it if Madonna was using the Koran as a prop or mocking Allah or Muhammad? No double standard here. Come on NBC, why don’t you allow equal time and have Madonna desecrate an Islamic symbol as well? What are you afraid of?
However, NBC thinks its perfectly OK for a crucifix to be used in this manner.
UPDATE: Could NBC be feeling the pressure? Do they really want thi head ache that may turn out to be a ratings ploy nightmare? Now NBC TV undecided about Madonna mock crucifixion
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – The NBC television network is still making up its mind about whether it will allow pop star Madonna to stage a mock crucifixion on its airwaves as part of her upcoming prime-time concert special.
Her stage act drew storms of protest from the Roman Catholic Church and Russian Orthodox Church during recent performances in Rome and Moscow, with church leaders condemning the mock crucifixion as blasphemy.
