Heavy Sigh Time

Jesus accepting gays too hot for NBC, CBS – Dec. 1, 2004

“It’s ironic that after a political season awash in commercials based on fear and deception by both parties seen on all major networks, an ad with a message of welcome and inclusion would be deemed too controversial,” said Rev. John Thomas in the statement.

  1. Well, something has to be.

  2. Has to be…? Too hot? Or too controversial?

  3. Both. Because the priamry job of any myth maker is to say, “This far and no further.” So commericals for the latest boner pill are all right but tolerence for gay people is out. Because, as Bill Maher says, “In America, the only thing a man should put in another man is a bullet.”

  4. Here’s a thoughtful Mormon discussion of what the commercial is or is not trying to say.

  6. You got something against drool?
