Just like the religious "specials" before Christmas, this is just an attempt to capitalize generally increased religious sentiments in the weeks before Easter. Of course it will be a sanitized version of the Bible. Do you think there's any chance they'll show little children and babies getting their heads lopped off while the Israelites obey God's command to slaughter every man, woman, child and animal among the Canaanites, Midianites, etc. It makes me sick when I read the lame attempts of apologists and pastors to excuse these things (ranging from "anything God does has to be right and loving by definition" to ""it's a mystery" to "it was a different time" -- while in the next breath saying God never changes). I sometimes ask people making such arguments, if YOU were in the Israel army, would you obey such commands--even hacking up little babies, and assume you were doing God's will? They'll usually squirm, but most won't give a straight
who say "yes" (and some will) scare me. After all, it's essentially the same mentality of those that strap bombs to their bodies in restaurants or slammed jets into the World Trade Center.
