Stupid christans look to ban Good Omens

Problem is the show's an Amazon production. D'oh!

RE: Stupid christans look to ban Good Omens
Oh yes, the horror of not taking a completely black and white view of something. God is good, even though he does horrible things, and Satan is evil, even though the only evil things he does is with God's permission. No reason to question or explore that dynamic. It just is.

I will say that it's odd when, in the age of gender identity, they would refer to God as a gender he doesn't identify as. He has always identified as male, whether he actually has male parts or not, but this show depicts him as a woman. Even when we all know gender identity is not linked to sex. #genderidentity

Good video to watch, if you want to know how common the Jesus story really is.

Well, in the words of that one philosophical guy:

I don't have Amazon, so I haven't seen this.  Cracking good book, though.

I wonder if Christian fanatics will ever get the point that this sort of thing just doesn't work anymore (even if you send your petitions to the right place).

Fanatics are about as likely to get the point as the Montreal Expos are in winning the Stanley Cup.

I've heard of Montreal.  The rest is a bit fuzzy...

Re-reading the book now.

Looking forward to seeing this show.

They should all get together at Krakatoa and pray for god to stop the show.

I bet it works...

Simple, if you don't like the book or program, then don't read or watch it.
What's the problem?

Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups

Some people make being “offended” a profession.
