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?

Write the FCC on Behalf of the Church of Christ

Lodge a series of complaints with FCC commissioners, encouraging them to deny the licenses to the two networks that censored the gay-friendly church ad I've referred to a few times this week. Here's a sample note:

Dear Mr. Powell: (michael.powell@fcc.gov)
Dear Ms. Abernathy: (kathleen.abernathy@fcc.gov)
Dear Mr. Copps: (michael.copps@fcc.gov)
Dear Mr. Martin: (kjmweb@fcc.gov)
Dear Mr. Adelstein: (jonathan.adelstein@fcc.gov)

I received this release (see below) from the United Church of Christ today. I most heartily concur with the Church's position. The action by the two television networks to ban the church's ad on grounds that it is "too controversial" is a red herring. Because they utilize public airwaves, both networks must act in accordance with society's best interest. The public interest is not served by their arbitrary decisions to censor ads with which they might not agree.

I hope you will investigate this issue and determine a fitting course of action that ensures all groups of Americans continue to be served by diverse, tolerant and respectful programming -- whether it is potentially controversial or not.

I appreciate your time and consideration.
