A television documentary depicting Jesus as a human is drawing sharp criticism from Christian circles. While Christian leaders have called for the cancellation of the program, the TV network's union has vowed to continue the broadcast.One more time:
The Christian Council of Korea (CCK), a group of protestant Christians, recently sent a complaint to SBS who aired the first episode of a four-part documentary "Shineui Gil, Inganeui Gil" (The Road of God, the Road of Man) on June 29.
The CCK said: "What the program is trying to say could shake many people's beliefs. It is a violation of individuals rights to have freedom of religion guaranteed by the Constitution." The group reportedly tried to cancel the show.
The CCK started a hunger strike but halted it several hours later Sunday. The Korean Association of Church Communication said, "We are very anxious that the program is trying to tarnish the honor of Jesus, who is the God of 2 billion people worldwide. We will do whatever we can to stop the devious program."
It is a violation of individuals rights to have freedom of religion guaranteed by the Constitution."Constitution law scholars each and every one of them. I missed the part where SBS was stopping them from believing whatever they wanted. It's this sentence which really got my attention:
"What the program is trying to say could shake many people's beliefs."How weak must the foundation of these people's beliefs be if they can be shaken by a documentary?
