FOX's "Glee" offensive, but reflects sad element of truth for today's prophetic times

Christians and Jews should be offended by the portrayal of their faiths by the pro-gay agenda television program Glee, aired on FOX October 5th. The episode centered around religion and how most of the cast of Glee did not believe in God. That said, many of them thought they believed in God, but their concept of God was so misguided that it reminds us of the condition of the modern Church. Notwithstanding, true believers ought to boycott the show and its sponsors--Toyota, Sprint and American Express. The religion that got a pass on this show was Islam--probably because the producers knew that ridiculing the Muslims would have resulted in riots and deaths from the man-hallowed "religion of peace."

The main character, Quinn, burns his grilled cheese sandwich in the microwave, which emerges with the face of Jesus on it. Quinn started praying to the "Grilled Cheesus" for things like winning football games and having sexual relations with his Jewish girlfriend. When his so called "prayers" were answered, it caused quite a discussion among the Glee club members. Quinn said that a man had come into his life. Another guy commented that Quinn was finally coming out of the closet. Then Quinn said it was Jesus. And the same guy said, "That's even worse." The cast then trumpeted the benefits of God--being close to God because "I fall asleep when I pray." Or "I see God every time I make out with a new chick."

The flaming homosexual, Kurt, says he is an atheist. He says he doesn't go to church, "The reason I don't go to church is because most churches don't think very much of gay people. Or women. Or science." Kurt's father has a heart attack and goes into a coma. Much of the program focuses on how the Glee cast wants to pray for the father and the homosexual trying everything but God to save his father--even acupuncture from a Sikh. Kurt ends up in this powerful scene apologizing to his father for not allowing his friends to pray for him and saying, "I don't believe in God, dad, but I believe in you and I believe in us--you and me--that's what is sacred to me."

In the end, the cast is all together singing a contemporary version of "God is great," giving the impression that they all found their own way to God. The producers certainly wanted to ridicule Christianity and Judaism and then give the audience a Hollywood-style version of religion that everyone has their own path to God, whatever they decide. This is no trivial matter. 2 Chronicles 36:16 says, "But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy." Galatians 6:7 says, "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap."

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
