PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"3/16/05 Atheist Family & Christian Family: WifeSwap"
Hi gang, my family, The Finley Family, was chosen to appear on ABC's WifeSwap. The episode will air March 16th, 2005 @ 10PM ET. We are a black godless family in Atlanta, GA. They swapped us with a white Christian family from Michigan! hee-hee. Big surprise. Set your TIVOs.

NOTE: For the record I know that skin color is no more significant than eye color, but the average viewer may find the fact that we are an atheist minority shocking.

In reason,

Bumping this for tonight's show that is airing right now.

I'm waiting till the end to post my comments. All I can say right now is regardless of belief, there is NO reason to not let your kids play outside. Dood, your son is growing up without a father, he needs you. Wife is sweet, I know Sims2 is addictive, but she seems to have learned how important it is to spend time with your kids.

Also, I'm reminded why I have real problems with some homeschooling.

Overall, I think both wives were cool in their own way, the husbands seem to be the ones with the problems.

C'est Moi.
Thanks Syren!

To admit you were wrong is to declare you are wiser now than before.

Good ending though, I think (hope) that both parties benefited from this show.

HeY, don't believe everything you see on TV darling. I'm glad it entertained you however. The family is always going out together. The context was when was the last time, "just" Dorian and I go out. I thought last month, so I asked Dorian. He said it was actually last weekend.. but of course.. that was cut out.

Thanks for watching all. My friend Buckster is explaining in more detail the truth behind reality TV shows here: http://www.infidelguy.com/ftopicp-297133-Official_Stonerock__Finley_Wife_Swap_Commentary_Thread.html#297133

You have a really sweet family. Just know that there are Christians who do accept and befriend people from all walks of life, don't be afraid to open yourself up a bit.
Hope you and your family are doing well. You've raised a responsible and respectful son and your toddlers are just adorable.

I was impressed with both families. At least it wasn't a bitchfest...it seemed everyone acknowledged the others beliefs (didn't agre but at least acknowledged).


I finally blogged

Agree. I was glad it didn't turn into a #####-fest, it's nice when peeps can come together and really learn something from the experience. The Christian wife was at least not extremely embarrassing to the faith as others have been. Like Slagkick Margie.

I still thought the two families at first were trying to push their beliefs off on the other family members. I like at the end the two families came away with something.

I hope that little girl gets more love from her aunt.

When I saw the show title, I didn't want to watch it. I thought it will yet again be a "mine is the right way and the only way" kind of thing. Unfortunately, I had nothing else Tivo'd! This is the first wife swap in a long time that was normal, where for the most part people were cordial.

But I must say, that both families, as usual are a bit extreme, and both families upset me somewhat. You can believe in god, but it can be a belief that you talk about 3-4 times a day, pray a few times a day, but once in a while something other than god, something pertaining to real everyday life should cross your lips. I usually get the feeling that people who tend to overdo it, are actually trying to convince themselves. On the other hand, I know many many atheists, and I'm not a 100% believer myself, and none of them have mouse pads, signs, t-shirts, and such studding their houses and wardrobes. Again, in some ways if a person has to constantly reinforce it, maybe their not convinced themselves. Or maybe it's just a counteraction to the ever present Chrisitan environment that they live in.

I'm glad the Atlanta family claims to go out more than what was implied on the show. What I think the other family needs to drop is soap in the mouth. It's mean spirited and shameful. There are plenty of other punishments out there. What bothers me most is that the father seemed to find it funny, and take pleasure in it.

Yeah.. laughing about it did seem to piss quite a number of people off. However remember, at least 50% of this stuff is creative editing.

Again, I'm glad it at least entertained you. If you want to really get to know my family: Visit my website: http://www.infidelguy.com

We have audio Amber and I did talking about the show and a friend of mine Buckster does a damning critique of the entire thing. He investigated the shots, editing, dubbing and voice-overs very well. It will shock you.

See you there:

I read Buckster's critique, it was eye-opening. You'd think I'd know better by now how reality tv is edited.

Thanks for sharing!

Reginald, to me it seemed like you are trying to turn people against God. I am a Christian, and I have friends who are not Christians. I thought your wife seemed very caring and nice. I thought you really played it up for the camera.
