Spread by religious ideologues who have no idea what they are talking about, and later mocked online, The anti-Good Omens Campaign has way more problems than it’s creators not even knowing what channel the show’s on.

I don’t think these people have thought this out too well:

“mocks God’s wisdom”

Doesn’t the devil do that you know, IN THE BIBLE???

God, they complain, is “voiced by a woman”

That’s incel-like.

the antichrist is a “normal kid”

Isn’t that you know, IN THE BIBLE??? He’s a normal adult who fools you idiots!

“this type of video makes light of Truth, Error, Good and Evil.”

God forbids that? You should let every comedian that ever existed know that they are going to hell then.

“Destroys the barriers of horror that society still has for the devil”

So you’re saying people shouldn’t watch Good Omens so they don’t know what the devil is up to? Isn’t that practicing Satanism???

And of course, I shouldn’t have to mention it’s not on Netflix and it’s not ONE video, it’s a six episode mini-series that I love which will NOT have a second series anyway! Great job bringing it more attention than ever you dolts. In fact, I might watch it all again this weekend.

Why No Similar Treatment For Shows That Question God’s Existence Seriously Like God Friended Me?

“Heavenly Taco Truck” — Miles\’ wallet is stolen when he, Rakesh and Cara check out a food truck the God Account suggests that he “like.” But when the account then suggests that he befriend a private investigator, Miles decides to turn the tables and have the PI help him track down the thief, who Miles believes is linked to the account, on GOD FRIENDED ME, Sunday, Oct. 14 (8:30-9:30 PM, ET/8:00-9:00 PM, PT) on the CBS Television Network.

It should be pointed out that even shows based in religious mythology almost always questions the existence of God, while Good Omens is a humorous satire NOT meant to be taken seriously numerous other shows throughout time have questioned God in very serious ways. Including another great show that premiered this year; God Friended Me. Which did not receive this hatred from the Christian Right. In fact, God Friended me has received rave reviews from Atheists and Christians alike. With no such petitions to have it removed.

Which is weird considering that the main character in God Friended Me is is an atheist and his sister is a lesbian and God may or may not be an AI code … Plus everyone else is a hipster or black…

Debating Religion is Central to God Friended Me’s Plot

God Friended Me has a great debate going on inside each and every episode. One moment you are like, “Yeah god doesn’t exist atheism all the way!” The next you are like, “Wait how is everything connected if God Account isn’t actually God?”

Then you have the metaphysical questions like if a really smart person created an AI that acted like a God is it a God? But the Atheist could just as easily say, the human is smarter anyway because it still created the code. So then is that person God too? Either way, you as the viewer are questioning the existence of God, while at the same time the main character finds faith in the God Account. If you can’t do that in TV these days, according to these “Christians”, they better buck up and make a really, really, really, really long list about all the shows that do this. It’s easier if they just stick with Hallmark.

Plus Joe Morton plays a great priest and He and Brandon Micheal Hall play off each other’s facial expressions and emotions in amazing ways that I’ve not seen in many other father/son TV show pairings.
