Consider This: New TV Series Causes Controversy

JANUARY 6, 2006 -- If you haven't heard, NBC is premiering a new series. It's called "The Book of Daniel" and it's causing quite a ruckus. The show's primary character is an Episcopal priest with a troubled family who talks with Jesus as he goes about solving his family's and church's problems.

The station has received dozens of calls and emails from viewers, many in support of airing the program but even more asking us not to air it. I believe the majority of our viewers don't want me censoring their viewing choices. If you believe this program will offend you, please don't watch it. That's the way free choice works in this great country. If you don't like a particular program, turn it off. Vote with your remote. Watch something else. If enough viewers refuse to watch a show, the network will cancel it, and that's the way it should work. I shouldn't be making your viewing choices. You should. It's a free country and that's the way we should keep it!

That's what we think. Tell us what you think.
