When NBC announced Britney Spears would play a Christian Fundamentalist who hosts a cooking show called “Cruci-fixin’s” on Will & Grace, we knew there’d be an uproar, but, well, not because of this: the American Family Association (we don’t know about you, but we’ve missed them terribly lately) is all up in arms about her character.
“To further denigrate Christianity, NBC chose to air [the episode] the night before Good Friday,” AFA Founder and Chairman Donald E. Wildmon complained.
“NBC does not treat Jews, Muslims or other religions with such disrespect. Yet the network demonstrates a deep of hostility toward followers of Christ.”
Of course, we’re horribly offended as well. Not about the crucifix thing, though (it’s a JOKE, people.) No, we’re just offended that we have to sit through a half hour of Britney Spears trying to act.
Let’s just hope she spares us with her singing.
