One man's free speech...

A few months back the networks refused to air an ad from the United Church of Christ (an old mainstream denomination) touting its acceptance and welcome, ostensibly because they don't accept ads from religious organizations, but really because it offered tacit acceptance to gays seeking the church as well. Now the double-standard is revealed, as those same networks happily accept an ad from Focus on the Family, an organization with a stated religious agenda. (kos captures the hypocrisy with pithy out-takes.) TV! hmmm.

(See previous discussion of the banned ad and rationale offered then here.)
