A leading pro-family group is urging supporters to contact the FCC to protest NBC’s broadcast of a scene from a strip bar on the program “Las Vegas.”
The American Family Association sent an e-mail yesterday decrying the televise segment, which it described as “extremely graphic.” With the e-mail was a link readers could use to view the scene, which aired Monday.
NBC aired this scene during prime-time hours when they knew millions of children would likely be watching,” said AFA founder Don Wildmon. “But NBC didn’t care if they exposed children to this kind of material. Please take action … and help us help our children.”
Wildmon urges supporters to file a complaint with the Federal Communication Commission, which polices public airwaves.
“Rather than trying to describe it to you, I would rather you watch it yourself,” Wildmon said. “After watching the video, please follow the instructions to file your official complaint with the FCC. It will only take a couple of minutes to file the complaint. Do it for your children and grandchildren.”
The organization provides a form on its website to lodge a complaint with the government agency.
The NBC stripper scene is the latest in a series of decisions by the network that have outraged Christian and pro-family activists.
Last month, NBC debuted “Book of Daniel,” a series about a dysfunctional Christian family led by a pill-popping Episcopal priest. The show eventually was pulled after WND first broke the story and a campaign against it was launched.
The network also came under fire after it was learned an episode of “Will & Grace” would include pop star Britney Spears playing the conservative Christian host of a cooking segment called “Cruci-fixin’s.” NBC later canceled the episode.
