This is your chance to show the American Family Association that they cannot dictate what products we buy, what places we visit and most recently what television programs we watch.

The American Family Association has decided to begin the new year by urging its members to flood NBC with letters denouncing the network's new series "The Book of Daniel" which will feature primetime's only openly gay male character in a new show.

The series is planned to debut January 6 at 9:00 pm E/P time.

"The Book of Daniel" stars Aidan Quinn as the Reverend Daniel Webster an unconventional Episcopalian minister who not only believes in Jesus - he actually sees him and discusses life with him.

His children include Peter (Christian Campbell), a 23-year-old gay son.

Focusing on the Gay character, the American Family Association, as close-minded as it is, seems to find the behaviors of the other characters acceptable. This would include the following:

Webster's daughter Grace, is 16-year-old daughter who just happens to be a drug dealer. Then there's the 16-year-old adopted son who is having sex with the bishop's daughter, Webster's wife who is "addicted to martinis", and Webster's secretary a lesbian who is sleeping with his sister-in-law.

Further angering the AFA is Jack Kenny, the show's writer, who also is openly gay.

The group is urging its members to write to NBC Chairman Bob Wright to voice their disapproval; warning Wright that the organization may target the show's advertisers.

My suggestion, tune in and watch this show. Ask your family, friends, business associates, whoever you can think of, to watch this show. Begin the new year by doing the right thing. Do not allow left wing conservative groups to dictate your life!

Better still,
E-Mail NBC Chairman Bob Wright at and let him know that NBC must not allow the American Family Association to dictate what you watch on television!

Great post DonDon. I'll be sending an email. I am so tired of the religious right trying to tell me what I can and can no see!

Indeed...this has to be talked about and we must make the stand where the stand can be made!

Thank you.

Thanks for the heads up... I've been so inundated with the RR trying to get Merry Christmas tattooed on everyone's ass that I had missed this story. ;-)
