 American Family Association - AgapePress news
The American Family Association (AFA) reports that the network cancelled plans to include a reference in the show's April 13 episode that would have offended Christians, both by its timing and its content.

Randy Sharp, AFA's special projects director, says he believes the network's now aborted plan to air the distasteful and faith-mocking segment was its way of seeking revenge against the pro-family organization and its supporters.
