Just days after it was announced that Britney Spears
will guest on Will & Grace
as a Bible-thumper who brings to Jack's cable show, among other things, a cooking segment called "Cruci-fixin's," the NBC comedy has come under fire from the American Family Association — the same advocacy group that targeted The Book of Daniel
. The AFA claims Spears' story line "mocks the crucifixion of Christ" and will "further denigrate Christianity" by airing April 13, the night before Good Friday. In response, NBC claims the episode summary that went out contained "erroneous information" and that the script has yet to actually be written.
