I returned from a trip to Texas and noticed there was a bit of back and forth here at TAS over NBC’s decision to engage in religious-cleansing of the Veggie Tales cartoons for broadcast. Frankly, I’m a little surprised. My kids watch it and I always thought it was pretty theologically inoffensive unless you consider plain old Bible morality and very simple God-talk to be an outrage.
Anyway, count on S.T. Karnick to find a new angle on the story. He asks the simple question, “How is it that Veggie Tales is clearly offensive in mentioning God, but we aren’t so sure whether we have a problem with Madonna performing a song hanging from a cross?” Check out the link above for some excellent analysis.
