GLEE Mocks Christianity at Christmas

FacebookTwitter

Most families enjoy watching Christmas programs and movies this time of year. Unfortunately not all Christmas features are wholesome entertainment. Glee's previously "Never Aired Christmas" episode should have stayed just that and remained unaired, considering it was complete with a bisexual Santa, transgender Virgin Mary and its fair share of drunkenness.

Other religions do not tolerate this behavior and as Christians we will not either. Why any producer or network feels mocking a sacred and religious holiday where Christians celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ is acceptable is beyond me. GLEE should not and will not get a free pass to make a joke of Christmas.

This is not the first time the show has aired blasphemous content in their program. Glee producer Ryan Murphy is used to pushing the moral boundaries on his show, but last week's episode went too far. The mockery of the Christmas story was blasphemous and an abomination.

The show featured the transgender student, Unique, portraying the Virgin Mary in their high school's nativity scene and acts out giving birth to the baby Jesus. The doll representing Jesus wore a sequin diaper and was thrown from singer to singer while they sang "Love Child, Never Meant to be." Baby Jesus is tossed around like a rag doll and shown no respect.

In another scene, a bisexual "Sexy Santa," gets two female characters and the show's gay male character drunk before robbing them blind - all this after making out with and tying the male character up in bed. These same females in a previous scene are elves at the local mall and tell kids to ask for mobile devices they could download porn on while wearing skimpy elf costumes.

Glee is not a late-night program and is rated TV-14 DLSV. While it currently airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/ 8 p.m. CT on FOX, in February it will be moving to Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. CT - well before many children's bedtimes.

TAKE ACTION

Please send an email to this show's sponsors and let them know that we will not stand for Christianity to be mocked. Urge advertisers to place the program GLEE on their "do not advertise" list immediately. Last week's national sponsors were: Kay Jewelers, Nokia, Kleenex Brand (Kimberly-Clark Corporation), Victoria's Secret, Old Navy, Maybelline (L'Oreal), Hershey's and Macy's.
