Well, That Was Quick

It's official: The "Book of Daniel" has gone the way of all flesh. Hat tip to Midwest Conservative Journal, which also had this to say:

I said it before and I'll say it again: if you want to create a drama about Episcopalians, use real ones. Create a real Episcopal parish, one torn apart by Gene Robinson or whatever other controversy you want to create, and have the rector try to keep things together, all the while wondering whether he really supports what ECUSA has done or not.

Now that would be real drama: social and religious left-wingers forcing their views on the "little people" and expecting them to keep their mouths shut and their wallets open. That might hit the network execs too close to home. Of course, I had ideas about a potential show, as well.

The Left has already begun carping about the chilling effect created by supposed Religious Right intimidation. The Religious Right was not responsible for getting this show cancelled; the American mainstream was. The average viewer is not interested in enlisting in Falwell's brigades, but he/she does not want to see clergy -- let alone the Almighty -- defamed for sport. This is the latest in a long string of free market rebukes demonstrating the secular, religio-phobic Left is still unable to brainwash the American people, even with the services of all three networks, the prestige press, and all the Turner networks combined. In their propaganda war against American values, even a reimagined Jesus could not be their savior.

Good riddance.
