Analysts and companies say the boycott of Danish goods called by Islamic countries is costing Danish businesses more than $1 million a day.
Hear me out a bit..
I’m sincerely offended at the media’s constant breaking of the 3rd commandment.
Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. (Exodus 20:7)
I wish we who call ourselves Christians would protest (in a civillized manor) whenever the media blasphemed God and Jesus Christ. At least the Muslims are acting like they believe what they say.
I have to wonder if somewhere in the writing of this show, someone didn’t say, “nah, this needs to be more offensive…”
From the inbox:
The network is promoting “The Book of Daniel” as a serious drama about Christian people and the Christian faith. The characters include: Daniel Webster, a drug-addicted Episcopal priest; his alcoholic wife; his son, a 23-year-old homosexual Republican; his daughter, a 16-year-old drug dealing daughter; a 16-year-old adopted son who is having sex with the bishop’s daughter; his lesbian secretary who is sleeping with his sister-in-law; and a very unconventional white-robed, bearded Jesus who talks to the priest.
The writer for the program is Jack Kenny, a practicing homosexual who describes himself as being “in Catholic recovery,” and is interested in Buddhist teachings about reincarnation and isn’t sure exactly how he defines God and/or Jesus. “I don’t necessarily know that all the myth surrounding him (Jesus) is true,” he said.
Aidan Quinn, who plays Rev. Webster, said if the show offends some Catholics, “I don’t really care…”

Senate set to give half-billion in tax credit to support casinos, adult bookstores, liquor stores, massage parlors, escort services, country clubs
Contact Your U.S. Senators Today!
Congress is being asked to give nearly a half-billion dollars in tax credit to casinos, country clubs, liquor stores, massage parlors, adult bookstores and “escort” services which were damaged by hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
The measure is now in a conference committee trying to work out the differences in the House version and Senate version.
If passed with the casino tax-breaks intact, the casinos would not only get their insurance money but also get the tax money. The House version doesn’t allow tax breaks for casinos, country clubs, liquor stores and massage parlors while the Senate version does.
Send an email to your U.S. Senators and urge them not to include casinos, country clubs, liquor stores, massage parlors, adult bookstores and “escort” services in the half-billion in tax credits. Time is short as the bill is now being considered and expected out of conference soon.

Catching potential Internet sex predators – Dateline NBC – MSNBC.com
In any home where there are kids with computers, there are parents with concerns. Teenagers can spend hours chatting online, but who are they chatting with? On the other end of that instant message could be a complete stranger – or a sexual predator. It’s a dangerous side of the Internet, one that’s growing and many children are at risk. So we went undercover, filling a house with hidden cameras.
Soon, a long line of visitors came knocking, expecting to find a young teenager they’d been chatting with on the Internet, home alone. Instead, they found Dateline.
We want to warn you some of what you’ll read is explicit. But parents need to know what their kids can confront when they sit down at the computer.
Look, here are some simple rules.
1. No computers in the bedroom. Keep any computer hooked to the Internet in a public room like a den or something.
2. Get a filter. Try BSafe Online’s filter free for 10 days. (yes, I work for them, but I get nothing for recommending the product, and I recommended it before they hired me.). If you don’t like their filter, get one you do like.
3. Know what your kids are doing online. There is never any reason for them to go in a public chat room – and Instant messaging should only be with friends they already have – not for making new one.
4. Don’t let them fill out a profile. It only works as pervert-bait.
