We need to send a loud and clear message to advertisers that this kind of programming is insulting and completely unacceptable.

The premiere for the disgusting program “Impastor” aired July 15 10:30 p.m. ET/9:30 p.m. CT. The first episode included a man stealing someone's identity who happens to be a gay pastor.
The main character, posing as a gay preacher, recently hired sight unseen by a church that was aware of his lifestyle choice, but then start to notice other characteristics not typical of a pastor. The previews which air earlier in the evening include the pastor having extensive knowledge of the quality of drugs and dialogue concerning sexual relations with cantaloupe. The church secretary catches the pastor sleeping around with women and other behaviors not typical of a Christian, much less a pastor.
This show not only depicts pastors in a negative light, but the entire program will also be based on lies about Christianity. TV Land has crossed the line by belittling the Christian faith with foul jokes.
We need to send a loud and clear message to advertisers that this kind of programming is insulting and completely unacceptable. TV Land is not ridiculing any other religion currently and wouldn’t dream of mocking Mohammed or Muslims.
Christians must take a stand and not be silent. Networks like TV Land continue to mock Christianity, and we will not stand for it. Christians should no longer sit idly by and allow this blasphemy to continue without speaking up in protest. “Impastor” is another attempt to distort the truth about Christianity. There is power in numbers so forward this to everyone you know!
