And there was a couple of lines by Matthew Perry to the christian female character I thought were digs at religious folks. It was simply my conjecture that a lot of mainstream Christians probably tuned out after that if they were watching. Again, purely speculation. And Krono, I'm not so sure that the masses of Christians would appreciate their faith being poked at like that, even if they're going after the far right. Again, I could be wrong because I'm not of the faith myself, but it's such a polarizing topic these days that it wouldn't surprise me if some folks would rather just not have to listen to Hollywood make light of their faith.
Oh I'm sure a lot of people just turned it off when the topic came up, to me it didn't matter, I'm secure in my faith not to give a crap what a writer says about it, all in the view point.
Later episodes didn't really touch the subject, except for Harriet seeming to say "I'm a Christian" for no reason at all sometimes, that annoyed me more then anything.
