In a country that doesn't (officially) recognize state-sponsored religion, whose Constitution says "all men are created equal," where bigotry and bias are abhorred — why do otherwise intelligent and sensitive people feel they can engage in hate speech against gay people?

Despite tenets such as [More...]

A Refreshing Twist

Remember when I advised signing up for the e-mail alerts from the Parents Television Council and then using their web site to send messages directly opposed to what they suggest? Not only is it effective -- it makes the recipients' days! See for yourself below:

Dear (newspaper):

Below is the text the Parents Television Council would like me to send to
you. Instead, here is my message to you:

THESE PEOPLE ARE FANATICAL FREAKS! Please don't let them exert any undue
pressue upon you.

Please continue to offer programming you think is valuable -- based on
your professional judgement -- and not their unenlightened biases.

Thank you!
=================================

There's been a lot of talk in the press lately about how one activist
organization, the Parents Television Council, is trying to dictate
television standards for the rest of the country by encouraging its
members to file complaints with the FCC.  It seems that the press believes
that the hundreds of thousands of complaints filed by outraged citizens
over the rampant raunch on television somehow don't count simply because
the complainant belongs to an organized group.

If the networks put an FCC complaint form on their websites or if they
flashed the FCC's phone number across the screen between shows there would
be a flood of complaints. Parentstv.org is currently the only website that
provides this useful tool.

But the number of complaints filed, and where they're coming from
shouldn't matter.  Whether we're talking about one complaint or one
million, it all boils down to one issue: Are networks breaking the law by
showing indecent content and will the FCC do its job to enforce the
indecency laws?
