Subject: Please drop all plans to air the anti-Christian program "Impastor"



As a parent and a member of OneMillionMoms.com, I strongly encourage TV Land and Viacom to drop all plans to air the anti-Christian program "Impastor." This show is another attempt to distort the truth about Christianity. Your network is making a mockery of Christian pastors. Your show completely misrepresents the characteristics of pastors and is based on lies about Christianity.

As a Christian, I feel you are attacking my faith. This type of Bible-bashing programming is insulting and completely unacceptable. People of faith will not tolerate pastors being ridiculed. TV Land is not bashing any other religion currently and wouldn’t dream of mocking Mohammed or Muslims.

I am prepared to join thousands of other voices in urging advertisers to place it on their "do not advertise" list in protest of this anti-Christian bigotry. I urge TV Land and Viacom to cancel this Christian-bashing program immediately!

I look forward to hearing from you regarding my concern.

TV Land calls their new program "Impastor" an irreverend new comedy. Christians are calling it disgusting! "Impastor" is a show set to air July 15 10:30 p.m. ET/9:30 p.m. CT that includes a man stealing someone's identity who happens to be a pastor. The main character, posing as a gay preacher, recently hired sight unseen by a church that was aware of his lifestyle choice, but then start to notice other characteristics not typical of a pastor. The previews which air earlier in the evening are including the pastor having extensive knowledge of the quality of drugs and insinuating sexual relations with fruit such as cantaloupe. The church secretary catches the pastor sleeping around with women and other behaviors not typical of a Christian, much less a pastor.

This show not only depicts pastors in a negative light, but the entire program will also be based on lies about Christianity. TV Land has crossed the line by belittling the Christian religion with foul jokes.

We need to send a loud and clear message to TV Land, its owner Viacom, and all potential advertisers of "Impastor" that this kind of programming is insulting and completely unacceptable. TV Land is not ridiculing any other religion currently and wouldn't dream of mocking Mohammed or Muslims.

If we speak with one voice now, we can keep this program from ever seeing the light of day. Christians must take a stand and not be silent. Networks like TV Land continue to mock Christianity, and we will not stand for it. Christians should no longer sit idly by and allow this blasphemy to continue without speaking up in protest. "Impastor" is another attempt to distort the truth about Christianity. There is power in numbers! Forward this to everyone you know in a fight to keep this show off the air.
