Is “The Bible” A Mockery Of Religion?

That’s what this writer argues: ‘The History Channel more or less abandoned the pretext of history years ago. As programs like “UFO Hunters,” “Swamp People” and “Hairy Bikers” added up, the network’s decision to broadcast “The Bible” as a mini-series seemed like an obvious disaster. It is, too, in all ways except one: ratings. The scriptures according to basic cable don’t purport to be historical, but they’re about as bad and cynical as TV can be.’ Makes me wonder about “Vikings,” too.
