I need to get this off my chest:
If you follow The Office, you may remember from season 4 that Angela breaks up with Dwight over the somewhat mysterious circumstances of her cat's demise. Andy appears to win Angela's affections when he buys her a new cat, but is clearly unhappy with him by the time he proposes to her. For reasons the show doesn't bother to explain, she accepts Andy's proposal anyway, yet immediately cuckolds him in a secret affair with Dwight.
You might think there is enough weirdness here already for comedic purposes, but now let's add that the show portrays Angela as not only an outspoken Christian, but a Christian of a particularly uptight variety. Yet not only does she have romantic relationships with non-Christian men, but the show doesn't hesitate to toss an unconflicted adulterous affair on top of this.
The show's writers are just plain lazy. They're reaching for a grab bag of behaviors and characteristics they regard as unpleasant and dishonorable and dumping them into a single character without even a nod in the direction of internal consistency. "Hey! Let's make the character we've spent four seasons building up as a religious prude cheat on her husband-to-be with the old boyfriend who killed her cat! Yeah, that makes sense!"
This isn't just Φ griping about religion in the media. Sure, I want to see Christianity portrayed positively, but I'll recognize that while the Angela character is exaggerated (it's a sitcom, after all), some of us can come across as a little uptight to outsiders. And since the format requires that everyone's lives revolve around the office (like I said, it's a sitcom), there wasn't any room in the show to have Angela meet guys at, you know, church or something.
But if there is a profile for an adultress, surely Angela is its exact opposite. And, okay, sometimes people break their profiles, but that would require a complexity that the writers never wasted on Angela. Instead, they simply defaulted to simply making the Christian character look as bad as possible.
