.- The cancellation of the new television show “The Book of Daniel” is “good news for Christians and bad news for those who get their jollies trying to disparage them,” 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.

“The decision to air this show about a totally dysfunctional Christian family was another example of Hollywood’s agenda,” said Catholic League president Bill Donohue.

However, the league’s director of communications, Kiera McCaffrey, had an opportunity to preview the first two episodes and share her conclusions with Entertainment Tonight that she “couldn’t be offended by it because it’s more moronic than anything else.”

TV critics had said “The Book of Daniel” is “the best thing to hit TV this season,” “wildly entertaining and superbly cast” and “refreshingly intelligent.”
