Religion in a Bad Light

From today's Los Angeles Times:

Report says TV losing its religion

Are TV networks tuning out religion?

One of the entertainment industry's biggest watchdog groups says yes, although it gives reality shows high marks for showing frequent, unscripted outbursts of faith.

A study released Thursday by the Parents Television Council, a frequent critic of the TV industry over such issues as broadcast indecency, found that prime-time shows in the last year dealt with religion half as much as the year before. When they did, the Los Angeles-based group said, religion was cast in negative light more than one-third of the time.
I think the situation is worse than that - I would estimate that Christianity is cast in a negative light at least 90% of the time on the Trinity Broadcasting and Inspiration Networks! Let's hear it for the secular stations for doing a better job!
