Bishop of Bristol attacks Oscars host Seth MacFarlane for "crossing boundaries" of taste
THE Bishop of Bristol has attacked the ethics of the Oscars, claiming that Seth MacFarlane’s hosting of the ceremony was “hardly family entertainment”.
In his online blog, the Right Reverend Mike Hill said American actor Seth MacFarlane’s hosting of the Oscars Ceremony last month was ill-conceived.
“His gags about rape, domestic violence, led off with a smutty song about how many A-list celebrity womens’ breasts he had seen in movies,” the bishop said. “Oscar groupies and the wider media were enraged by the boundaries he crossed for the sake of humour.

“This is yet another TV show that gets its audience, creating humour by pushing the boundaries of decency, and though it is very popular and probably well done, I have often wondered whether shows like Family Guy have an effect on those who watch them in terms of their own desire or ability to live within boundaries. The truth is that we just don’t know.”
