Subject: I hope this was simply an oversight.
This show is another attempt to distort the truth about Christianity since it is based on lies. This program is also making a mockery of Christian pastors by completely misrepresenting the characteristics of preachers.
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.
While your company is a household name, I do not agree with your financial backing of this program. I certainly hope your company's financial support of this type of television programming with advertising dollars is simply an oversight.
As a consumer, I am asking Red Lobster to please pull ads immediately and to support family friendly programming instead. My decision to support your restaurant depends on it.
I look forward to hearing from you regarding my concern.
TV Land continues to air the sacrilegious program "Impastor" on Wednesday evenings at 10:30 p.m. ET/9:30 p.m. CT. It revolves around Buddy Dobbs, a gambling, pot-smoking slacker, on the run from a loan shark, who steals a man’s identity and ends up posing as the new gay pastor in a small, tightknit town.
The previews which air earlier in the evening include sex, theft, murder, drug use, and foul language.
This show not only depicts pastors in a negative light, but the entire program is also based on lies about Christianity including Christians using the Lord’s name in vain. TV Land has crossed the line by belittling the Christian faith with foul jokes.
We need to send a loud and clear message to advertisers that this kind of programming is insulting and completely unacceptable. Networks like TV Land continue to mock Christianity. "Impastor" is another attempt to distort the truth about Christianity. There is strength in numbers so forward this to everyone you know!
Please use the information we have provided to contact Red Lobster and ask that they pull their financial support from "Impastor."
