Spears' Tv Appearance Refuels Nbc/christian Group War

Subscribe to Britney Spears alerts

LATEST: Britney Spears' planned appearance on hit US TV show WILL + Grace has sparked anger from Christian campaigners the American Family Association (AFA).

The Mississippi-based group are calling for the episode to be cancelled amid claims the storyline will see Spears star as a TV host for a programme named 'Cruci-fixin's'.

AFA insist the show "mocks the crucifixion of Christ" and believe the designated 13 April (06) broadcast slot "further denigrates Christianity" because it is the eve of Christian celebration day, Good Friday.

The group's protests last month (JAN06) lead to the cancellation of NBC's The Book Of Daniel which featured a drug-taking priest.

AFA founder DON WILDMON says, "NBC is clearly mocking the Christian faith. I think they are smarting from the Book Of Daniel defeat that they suffered, and this is their way to get even."

NBC issued a statement in defence of the accusations, claiming Spears' role has yet to be determined.

It read, "Some erroneous information was mistakenly included in a press release describing an upcoming episode of Will + Grace, which, in fact, has yet to be written."
