The "REAL WAR" on Christianity

you wanna talk about war...? you wanna talk about rejecting jesus christ and his message...? you wanna talk about christians being persecuted...? where is the f*****g american family association on this one...? huh...? HUH...? if they REALLY BELIEVED christ's message, they would be out there screaming about how love, tolerance, understanding, acceptance and brotherhood don't seem to "fit" with television network policies... will we hear from 'em...? hell, no...
The nation's major television networks have rejected an ad [a 30-second commercial for the United Church of Christ] that shows a gay couple and others being banished from a church, saying it violates their rules against controversial or religious advertising.


Text on the screen reads, "God doesn't reject people. Neither do we," and a voiceover says, "The United Church of Christ. No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you're welcome here."

The church tried to run a similar ad in December 2004 in which bouncers outside a church stopped gay couples, racial minorities and others from entering. The networks also rejected that ad.

god bless the ucc for being true to the real christian message...
