Advertisers Urged To Follow Delta And Drop 'The Daily Show' For Its Unrelenting Attack On Christianity, Traditional Values

We at Caucus For America congratulate Delta Airlines for its decision to stop sponsoring on Jon Stewart's The Daily Show after it aired a skit entitled, "Vagina Manger."

Mr. Stewart and his writers engaged in an exceedingly vulgar and disrespectful assault on Christianity and one of its most sacred motifs. Mr. Stewart and his writers evidently live in a very gilded cocoon resulting in immense disrespect for religious Christians.

There is no question that The Daily Show would never depict Islam or other religions in such a deliberately mocking and degrading manner.

Responsible people understand that this is not comedy, but the use of "comedy" in an unrelenting attack on Christianity and traditional values. Such "comedic" derisions against Christianity and Orthodox Judaism have been going on for too long.

Out of respect for Christianity, we urge more advertisers to disassociate from the vileness that is The Daily Show.
