Religion 'Reality' Show

A planned reality television show in Turkey is set to pit religious leaders and atheists in a discussion to investigate beliefs. According to this Reuters report, the show will feature a Muslim imam, Christian priest, Jewish rabbi, and a Buddhist monk in a contest to see which man has the most success in converting the atheists. A new wrinkle threatens the show, however, as Turkish authorities may not allow it to go forward because it is too undignified and disrespectful to religion.

Hmm. I'll have to think about whether watching people try to convert each other is any more appealing than watching them try to sleep with each other, which seems to be the mainstay of reality TV. I'd rather watch volleyball myself.
