According to the American Family Association, "The Public Broadcasting System (PBS), probably the most liberal network in America, will present a program this fall that says the Old Testament is a bunch of made-up stories that never happened. 'The Bible's Buried Secrets' says the Bible is not true. It is scheduled to air on November 18.
Producer Paula Apsell said: "...It's (The Bible's Buried Secrets) designed for intelligent people who are willing to change their mind. …it will give intelligent people who want to read the Bible in a modern way a chance. If we insist on reading the Bible literally, in 25 years, nobody will read it any longer."
Among highlights of "The Bible's Buried Secrets":
• The Old Testament was written in the sixth century BC and hundreds of authors contributed. • Abraham, Sarah and their offspring didn't exist. • There is no archaeological evidence of the Exodus. • Monotheism was a process that took hundreds of years. • The Israelites were actually Canaanites. • The Israelites believed that God had a wife."
So why is PBS receiving our tax dollars? Your guess is better than mine. "The Bible's Buried Secrets" is simply one more reason Congress should stop supporting PBS with our tax dollars. Congress gives PBS hundreds of millions of tax dollars to help support the network. Of course, many in Congress would most likely claim that PBS is a public network, owing no allegience to any specific group or idea. However, PBS is often known for its left wing leaning programs. And this is just one more example. America was built upon Christianity; our laws, institutions, and founding fathers all believed that America was only built for Christians and that Christians should govern. However, we as a people have allowed those that hate our heritage and faith to rule over us and to allow programs and other forms of media to put out trash that literally calls into question our belief and literally calls our Holy Bible a lie. We as Christians should protest shows such as the PBS airing, write letters, make phone calls and fax our opposition to these media outlet. Remember, God said "His word would not return void." It will serve a purpose, eventhough we may think it is insignificant. Be silent no more.
