One of the most obscene shows ever aired on TV occurred on the August 21 episode of the AMC show “Preacher.”
It depicted Jesus in a grotesque sex scene. It was clearly meant to offend, and succeeded in assaulting the sensibilities of all Christians, as well as people of good will who are not Christians.
Bill Donohue summed up why this show was different. “We have been treated to this kind of fare from some pay-per-view channels, but we are not accustomed to AMC getting into the mud.”
He added that “If this is a signal of what it aspires to become, we will rally Christians against it.”
