Atlanta is home of many churches with varied beliefs and persuasions. In fact, some churches of the same denomination are situated across the street from one another.
Expectations can sometimes be high for preachers’ children. Many are held to high standards, not only by their parents, but by peers and parishioners. Most just desire to be seen as normal with the same behaviors and struggles associated with growing up.
Lifetime’s newest series entitled, “Preacher’s Daughters” is a reality program about Christian girls gone bad. The Lifetime website describes the show as follows:
"Teaching kids right from wrong may take a village...except when it takes a congregation! Lifetime will premiere its provocative new family docuseries "Preachers' Daughters," following the lives of three families for a behind-the-altar look at what happens at home after the sermon concludes, on Tuesday, March 12, at 10pm ET/PT (9pm CT). "Preachers' Daughters" reveals a hard-hitting but often humorous look at the lives of these pastors' daughters as they balance the temptations every teenager faces with their parents' strict expectations and code of conduct as influenced by their faith."
The Christian bashing in this series is even worse than that of “Good Christian B*tches” which was cancelled after advertisers withdrew their funding following contact by people of faith. While this program is offensive to preachers, daughters, and their families across the nation, it is also offensive to all Christians.
“As Christians, we know that no one is perfect other than Jesus because we are all born sinners who are saved by grace, but to publicize someone's struggles for a buck and belittle pastor's daughters in the process is despicable.
Lifetime should be ashamed of themselves. Networks continuously to mock Christianity, and we will not stand for it. Some in the entertainment business have gone too far, for too long. Christians should no longer sit idly by and allow it to continue without speaking up in protest,” Monica Coles, Director, One Million Moms
OMM is urging Christians to get involved by contacting Lifetime and its parent company, A&E Television Networks, LLC to drop their plans to air this anti-Christian program.
Additionally, Christians are asked to inform them that we are prepared to join thousands of others voices in encouraging advertisers to place their show on their “do not advertise” list and furthermore to consider pulling all ads from the Lifetime network in opposition to this anti-Christian bigotry.
On September 11, 2012 there was quite a stir and outcry in the media and White House regarding an anti-Muslim movie. However, it seems that it is open season against Christian bashing.
