MANILA, PHILIPPINES (Acme World News) -- Buddhists appeal to the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) to remove the channel of American televangelist Pat Robertson from cable listings.

The appeal was made after the controversial episode of "The 700 Club" wherein Pat Robertson wanted to destroy a Buddha statue, showing religious intolerance.

According to MTRCB's Wikipedia page, one of the criteria that disqualifies a program from public viewing is "constituting an attack against any race, creed or religion." Technically, Robertson's intolerance of religions other than his version of Christianity would fall under this category.

However, the appeal received negative reactions from conservative and Fundamentalist Christians, including staff of CBN.

The Acme News team tried to contact the MTRCB but as of press time, did not receive any response.
