The Real O'Neals: Is this what ABC thinks is funny?...

or more importantly, does the public think this is funny?

The Real O'Neals, an anti-Catholic sitcom, is neither funny nor does it display the tiniest bit of truth.  There is nothing "real" about this silly show.  A statue of the Virgin Mary, mother of God, on the back of a toilet?  Hilarious.  Not.

From ABC:
A contemporary take on a seemingly perfect Catholic family, whose lives take an unexpected turn when surprising truths are revealed. Instead of ruining their family, the honesty triggers a new, messier chapter where everyone stops pretending to be perfect and actually starts being real.
And what are these truths of this "typical" Irish-Catholic family?
  • A closeted gay son
  • A kleptomaniac sister
  • The older son a jock with anorexia
  • Parents who are going through a secret divorce
Supposedly, it's based on the early life of Dan Savage, a vile gay activist who relies on crude shock speech to reign in people.

What I will state is that nothing about this show makes me want to kill people.

Hey ABC, you hypocritical pack of hyenas, how about a show making fun of Muslims?

Allow me to make one thing very, very clear.  I'm not lambasting this show because I'm Catholic.  I would be just as appalled at a show demeaning Evangelicals or Mormons.  What I am lambasting is the fact that our culture is so degraded that anyone would find any of this funny.
