NEW YORK – Last week the US entertainment media attacked Christianity in at least 3 separate instances.

FOX TV – On Friday, the US Catholic League condemned a Fox television show “Mad TV” for a skit wherein a character depicting a priest was referred to by a sacrilegious name and shown groping women.

CBS TV – CBS withdrew an offer of employment given to outspokenly Christian football star Reggie White of the Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers for his criticism of the practice of homosexual sex. In an interview with the American Family Association, White revealed that the president of CBS expressed concern about a backlash from the gay community but was not concerned about the prospects of similar actions from the Christian community. The Campbell’s Soup company also let White go from their advertising endorsements after his pro-family talk.

DISNEY – The American Family Association reported that Michael Eisner, chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company, compared the Southern Baptist Convention’s (SBC) efforts to evangelize Jews with the Nazi efforts to exterminate them in the Holocaust. In a thinly veiled reference to Nazi Germany, Eisner said the SBC’s move “was something that hasn’t been recommended since the ’40s in Europe.”
