An exciting new development in religious morals, virtues and public relations:
CBC's take on altar boys blasphemy: Catholic group
OTTAWA -- A CBC pilot program that portrays altar boys as druggies and the Catholic communion host as "munchable snack food, possible poker chips and a repository for drops of LSD" has sparked a complaint accusing the public broadcaster of blasphemy.
"Catholics should not have to pay for shows where their most sacred rituals and images are considered a starting point for dramatic licence," said the Catholic Civil Rights League, which intends to lodge a formal complaint today with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for airing The Altar Boy Gang.
"With this program, the CBC has moved into the area of blasphemy of sacred rituals."
The Catholic Church: Taking a stand for the ramrod-straight sanctity and morality of altar boys everywhere.
Wait ... that didn't come out right ...
