(warning: Extremely sarcastic posting ahead)
It took twenty four years of my life before a life changing piece of mail found it’s way into my mailbox. It’s wasn’t a bird, it wasn’t a plane, it was Skyangel!
I’ll be honest, I was a little skeptical at first, a Christian TV and Radio satellite service? But then I read the testimonies and I was won over. I kid you not, this is what one of the “viewers” wrote:
“If you want to become a better Christ-follower, more disciplined, if you want to be the best you can be for Christ, this [Skyangel] is what you should get for your family…”
After all how could you go wrong with Sky Angel’s programming? They offer, “programs that re-energize your faith and connect you with things that truly matter.” And according to Sky Angel there are a lot of things that truly matter: sports, HGTV, and Fox News to name just a few.
There is a lot of worthless stuff out there on the airwaves and I think it makes sense to be proactive in avoiding that stuff in your home. Sky Angel goes one step further (and many steps too far) and pitches it’s stations as the definitive answer on what “Christ-Centered” is. According to Sky Angel the most Christ-centered new is Fox News. According to Sky Angel HGTV and TV in general is an opportunity to “re-energize your faith.”
I started to call them and found my self getting terribly ill and the thought of talking to a sales person trying to sell me faith through television. They are selling Television in the name of Jesus! My guess is Jesus would be stomping through and smashing a few satellite dishes on his way these days.
