The Sunday Morning Challenge
“What, pray tell, is the Sunday Morning Challenge”, you might be asking yourself. Well, it’s actually two challenges in one. Let me explain the first. We, here at Jamonation, would like to challenge secularist readers of this blog to watch one hour of Sunday morning Evangelical Christian religious television programing and post a comment regarding their resultant thoughts and reaction. I’ve watched these shows occasionally and am amazed that they are broadcast on the public airways. Be on the lookout for Creationist propaganda, fear mongering, the incorporation of patriotism, ties between church and state, threats of eternal damnation and the like. Carefully observe the set, backdrops, audience and music. Oh, and make sure you don’t have a mouth full of coffee when the preacher asks you to send a donation to "help with God's work". The second challenge is merely to see if you can sit through one hour of this kind of programming. Have a laugh or be appalled and tell us about it.
So, on Sunday July 22 / 07:
* Watch at least 1 hour of Evangelical Christian religious television programing.
* Post your reaction here at Jamonation.
* Have fun reading everyone's comments.
** Disclaimer: We at Jamonation accept no responsibility if, for some reason, you are converted to Evangelical Christianity by participating in The Sunday Morning Challenge.
So, If (unlike me) you happen to be awake early enough on Sunday Morning, you might as well give it a shot. Personally, I've had enough xian television for this lifetime, and would much rather spend my time sleeping, or posting on this blog... If only I could combine the two...
