At Least It’s Not Talking Spinach

My friend, who truly comprehends religion, has written some very good stuff on the NBC-VeggieTales (zzz . . must not fall asleep . . . nose smashing into keyboard hurts . . .) thingy.

After quoting an NBC press release that said, "[NBC's] goal is to reach as broad an audience as possible with these positive messages, while being careful not to advocate any one religious point of view," Johnny Winters's homeboy wrote,

This is a really interesting claim, since the key statement that has been banned is the VeggieTales motto used at the end of each episode, which is: “Remember kids, God made you special and he loves you very much.”

This statement was removed to avoid advocating “any one religious point of view.” This would be the controversial doctrinal point of view which maintains that God loves children. Of course, NBC leaders may have assumed that the statement that “God made you special” could be taken as an attack on evolution. That’s the ticket. Meanwhile, I should stress that Bob the Tomato does not do anything faith-specific while making this closing benediction, such as falling on his knees and making the sign of the cross. Bob the Tomato . . . does not have knees or arms.

Read the rest.

The problem with NBC is the same like all those of the outspoken minority of the culture. They are all ignorant about God, and would rather not have anybody telling them that, or the fact that they will have to face him one day (when each of them will die).
Also, the WORLD has become their god; and -sorry to say- they do not want to admit it to themselves. Vic

This is coming from the same company (NBC)that will let Madonna perform one of her songs while hanging from the cross. All of them or ignorant to God and His wonderous Grace.
