Charisma News’ Jennifer LeClaire reports that the new NBC sitcom Superstore is advertised as follows:
"America Ferrera (Ugly Betty) and Ben Feldman (Mad Men, A to Z) star in a hilarious workplace comedy (from the producer of The Office) about a unique family of employees at a supersized megastore.”
"From the bright-eyed newbies and the seen-it-all veterans to the clueless summer hires and the in-it-for-life managers, together they hilariously tackle the day-to-day grind of rabid bargain hunters, riot-causing sales and nap-worthy training sessions," the show description continues.
In the episode of the show entitled “Wedding Day Sale” a Christian store manager asks help from a gay employee to build a special gay wedding section in the store.
“I just want everyone who comes into this store to feel accepted,” says the store manager.
This comment then leads the manager and the employee to discuss Jesus’ views on homosexuality and to suggest that he would support gay marriage and gay adoption, and that he himself may have been homosexual.
LeClarie points out that “Various agendas have tried to morph Jesus into their own image over the centuries,” but that “the church needs to rise up and get equipped to preach an unadulterated gospel to a people group that is finding new ways to justify sin—even portraying Jesus in their own gay image.”
LeClaire encourages readers to extend love and kindness to homesexuals, but not to neglect standing for the truth of the Gospel.
“We need to pray. We need to write NBC and Universal Television and The District, who are parties to this show, and make our voice heard. We need to support Christian TV and film producers who have a good message. And, again, we need to understand how to share the Good News to a gay community who desperately needs a radical encounter with the love of God,” says LeClaire.
