Ty Adams, a web-based evangelist and author, is producing a new reality series: “The Real Housewives of the Bible.” This show will be a two-part DVD series which tracks six women, each woman representing a different woman from the Bible. The producer feels that the show will help women compare real-life issues with Christian teaching.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it illegal to discriminate against someone on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, or sex. In a case such as the one above regarding religion, harassment can include, for example, offensive remarks about a person’s religious beliefs or practices. Although the law doesn’t prohibit simple teasing, offhand comments, or isolated incidents that aren’t very serious, harassment is illegal when it is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive environment.
