Lifetime apparently has decided to delve into the world of what it is like to be the daughter of a preacher. Of course, the fact that they’re about to reveal that preachers aren’t necessarily the best parents, and that preacher’s daughters aren’t always the most moral has One Million Moms crying foul…and whining about how the media is bashing Christians again.
Lifetime describes the series thusly:
“Teaching kids right from wrong may take a village…except when it takes a congregation! Lifetime will premiere its provocative new family docuseries “Preachers’ Daughters,” following the lives of three families for a behind-the-altar look at what happens at home after the sermon concludes, on Tuesday, March 12, at 10pm ET/PT (9pm CT). “Preachers’ Daughters” reveals a hard-hitting but often humorous look at the lives of these pastors’ daughters as they balance the temptations every teenager faces with their parents’ strict expectations and code of conduct as influenced by their faith.”
Now, personally, I could care less about what these gals do. For that matter, I could care less about these kinds of shows, but they’re popping up everywhere because they’re cheep and bring in ratings. Something that One Million Moms seems to not understand. They whine that:
The Christian bashing program is much worse than “GCB,” which was canceled when advertisers withdrew their funding after being contacted by people of faith. This program is not only offensive to pastor’s, their daughters and families all across the country, but to all Christians. As Christians, we know that no one is perfect other than Jesus because we are all born sinners who are saved by grace, but to publicize someone’s struggles for a buck and belittle pastor’s daughters in the process is despicable.
Lifetime should be ashamed of themselves. Networks continuously to mock Christianity, and we will not stand for it. Some in the entertainment business have gone too far, for too long. Christians should no longer sit idly by and allow it to continue without speaking up in protest.
We are trying to figure out how shows like this mock Christianity when it seems Christians are quite capable of making a mockery of their own religion. Then again, at one point, the people who make up One Million Moms probably called Rock ‘n’ Roll “devil’s music”…oh wait, they probably still do that. For that matter, they probably still think that The Andy Griffin Show is the height in anti-Christian propaganda being pushed by the Liberal Media.
