NBC Outlaws Christianity, Bans Christ from Airwaves
Delivering the biggest blow to Traditional Christianity™ in at least nine days, NBC has declared that Christ Our Savior is no longer welcome on the network. There will be no Season 2 of C.E. A.D. The Bible Continues.
Season 1 followed the New Testament book of Acts, which has always been sort of a forgotten spinoff of the Gospels, trying to move some of the beloved supporting characters from Luke into starring roles with limited success, kind of like Joey did with Friends. The series averaged about 6 million total viewers, barely more than half The Bible’s History Channel audience.
Thus, the show has been crucified, dead, and buried by Pontius Peacock—who has always been rainbow colored and did not change his feathers in support of the Supreme Court’s marriage equality ruling, no matter what this rather bitter/confused man from Arkansas believes:
Anywho, A.D. may yet rise again and ascendth to the internet. Creators Mark Burnett and Roma Downey are trying to launch a web-based Christian TV channel, and A.D. is a possible cornerstone for the endeavor, which is expected to launch in 2016 or 2017, Rapture notwithstanding.
In the meantime, feel free to enjoy Lucifer on FOX instead.
