Terre Haute is not a big city. It has a population of about 60,000 people and has for years been controlled by the Democrats, an exception for Indiana.
But it is still a traditional town in a midwestern state. WTWO is the NBC affiliate in Terre Haute and it just said no to NBC.
Due to the feedback they received from the community, management has decided they will not air the new sitcom The Book of Daniel.
It seems that the people of Terre Haute took exception with a comedy that depticted Christians as drug addicts, drug dealers, thieves, alcoholics, homosexuals, adulterers etc.
But I do not think that is what upset people half as much as the depiction of Christ as a smart ass.
I don't attend Church on a regular basis and I don't pretend to be devout, but what is the point in something like this? It seems offensive to me and if the family were Muslims instead of Christians I doubt we would be seeing Mohammed portrayed as sarcastic..not unless the producer, the cast and the crew all had a death wish anyway.
