.- The cancellation of the new television show âThe Book of Danielâ is âgood news for Christians and bad news for those who get their jollies trying to disparage them,â says the Catholic League.
NBC-TV announced its decision yesterday to cancel the controversial television program about an Episcopalian priest and his dysfunctional family and church community. Numerous NBC affiliates across the country had received message from their viewers to cancel the offensive program.
âThe decision to air this show about a totally dysfunctional Christian family was another example of Hollywoodâs agenda,â said Catholic League president Bill Donohue.
However, the leagueâs director of communications, Kiera McCaffrey, had an opportunity to preview the first two episodes and share her conclusions with Entertainment Tonight that she âcouldnât be offended by it because itâs more moronic than anything else.â
TV critics had said âThe Book of Danielâ is âthe best thing to hit TV this season,â âwildly entertaining and superbly castâ and ârefreshingly intelligent.â
