Israeli TV mocks Christianity!
Christian and Muslim leaders have called on Pope Benedict XVI to cancel his trip to Israel after an Israeli TV channel aired a sacrilegious show.
The TV show hosted by comedian Lior Shlein contained blasphemous material against Jesus and Virgin Mary (PBUT).
Religious leaders denounced Shlein as Christian lawyers mulled over taking legal steps against the comedian and Channel 10.
In a letter to lawyers, Shlein has pledged to publicly apologize for the show.
Christian leaders said the show was “hurtful and humiliating to Christianity.”
Pope Benedict XVI is scheduled to visit Israel in May amid worsening ties between Tel Aviv and the Vatican.
The Vatican’s decision to lift the excommunication of Bishop Richard Williamson who denied the Holocaust sparked a row between the two sides.
