Santa Claus is supposed to determine who's been naughty or nice over the past year at Christmas time. For many mothers, the TV show "Glee" has been especially naughty. A recent episode featured a shirtless Santa Claus with a ripped physique - and mothers have flooded the network that they have found the image to be both insulting and offensive.
A bisexual "Sexy Santa" later gets two female characters as well as the show's gay male character drunk before robbing them blind.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "Other religions do not tolerate this behavior and as Christians we will not either," one mother said in an email. "Why any producer or network feels mocking a sacred and religious holiday where Christians celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ is acceptable is beyond me. 'Glee' should not and will not get a free pass to make a joke of Christmas."
The message continues: "This is not the first time the show has aired blasphemous content in their program. Glee producer Ryan Murphy is used to pushing the moral boundaries on his show, but last week's episode went too far. The mockery of the Christmas story was blasphemous and an abomination."
What drew the ire of many viewers was the fact that this particular episode featured the transgender student, Unique, portraying the Virgin Mary in their high school's nativity scene. Unique acts out giving birth to the baby Jesus.
Adding to the rather inappropriate nature of the telecast, the doll representing Jesus wore a sequin diaper and was thrown from singer to singer while they sang "Love Child, Never Meant to be."
A bisexual "Sexy Santa" later gets two female characters as well as the show's gay male character drunk before robbing them blind. This follows after making out with and tying the male character up in bed.
The girls, in a previous scene are elves at the local mall and tell kids to ask for mobile devices they could download porn on while wearing skimpy elf costumes.
While others debate the blasphemy of the episode, many would find it in questionable, nay BAD taste.
