Good Friday: Praying for end to the pandemic
Tomorrow is Good Friday – and in these unusual times, the Southern Baptist Convention is calling for a special time of prayer.
The American Family Association is urging Fox Network to cancel a new series it plans to air next year about Satan.
The show is based on the DC Comics character Lucifer Morningstar. The TV series will focus on Satan - "who is bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell," writes one Hollywood publication - as he retires to Los Angeles and helps LAPD punish criminals, thereby getting his "kicks."
But the American Family Association takes issue with the program because it will glorify Satan as a caring, likable person in human flesh.
Monica Cole, director of AFA's One Million Moms, says action is needed to stop the program from airing.
"We're asking that they immediately cancel any and all plans to air the show 'Lucifer,'" she says. “The show is not only disrespecting Christianity and mocking the Bible, but it can mess with people's eternity. It can fool them into believing lies that Satan is not that bad. Viewers are going to be misled."
In addition, says AFA, previews of the pilot episode depict graphic acts of violence, a nightclub featuring scantily clad women, and a demon.
AFA is urging those concerned about the show to sign a petition asking Fox to cancel it.
