Boycott National Geographic TV

I'd like to pass on part of an article that was emailed to me. I cannot stop thinking that Jesus must be so ashamed of this world with lies such as "The DaVinci Code", "Conversations with God" by Neale, and others. Here is one more to the list:

Did you know that Jesus Christ was a pimp?

He must have been. I saw it on TV.

In fact, he brokered Mary Magdelene's hooking business with various johns who were looking for love in all the wrong places, and willing to pay a few gold ducats for the service...

...But by the look of a promo spot for "The Secret Lives of Jesus," which premiered Sunday night on the National Geographic Channel, you would think Jesus was the anti-Christ.

The spot proclaims that Jesus was a troubled child who once crippled a boy because his victim's father had ratted him out for making clay pigeons on the Sabbath. To make the evidence disappear, Jesus brought the pigeons to life and made them fly away.
You can contact National Geographic TV and voice your disapproval.

That is an old apocryphal story from (I think) the "Gospel of Thomas", though I could be mistaken - about Jesus turning clay figures into live animals.
Same old recycled crap, different day. Been around for a thousand years - why are these people laboring under the delusion that they have 'discovered' this garbage? People are so gullible.

I think nearly all tv is garbage. Can't stand to have it on. Its the most shallow stuff I've ever seen, really.

The commercial was bad. Can you imagine what the program will be like?
