BlueJay BS: Touched By An Angel to be Cancelled (40) Touched By An Angel to be Cancelled 19 Oct 01

Got an e-mail stating that the television show "Touched by an Angel" would soon be cancelled because of it's religious implications. The e-mail stated that the late athiest Madeline Murray O'Hare's organisation had somehow manipulated this, and that Sunday morning church broadcasts of all religions are in jeopardy.

I think it's probably bullshit, but has anyone heard of a definitive court case or media decision regarding this?

Understand that I am not a religious person, but I do like that television show. But I don't like the idea that it could be regulated out of existence on anti-religious grounds. Same with the Sunday morning televised church services, even though I believe most of those preachers are quacks.

Just curious. Throw in a Hallelua if you want to convert this to a "musical" thread. Thanks, BlueJay
