The Jesus hates Obama ad was hilarious, its really a shame they won't air that one. Some are too sexed up and I guess Fox is shying away from that type of stuff after the Janet Jackson incident but this cut the cheese ad is totally awesome!




IMO, if they have the money to pay for the ad, its not pornographic and they get a slot before they are all used up, they should be able to run any ad they want.

Censorship of ideas sucks, especially when they ban the really funny ads.

I agree, but could you imagine... There wouldn't be enough customer service reps in India to handle the FCC or Fox's complaints.

In a society like ours today, it is OK to run ads selling anything you could imagine but, when it comes to advocating a belief system, they close the door in your face?


The constitution gives you religious freedom to believe, practice and promote your religion. However your freedom ends where another's begins. No media outlet is required to sell you time. Fox is under no obligation to you to be partners with you in the promotion of your religion. Nobody is obligated to you, PERIOD.

Originally posted by FortAnthemI know they are a private company and are free to do whatever they wish but, isn't this going overboard?

I wonder if this is really about the fact that the ad is NOT seeking money. Do they have a policy that says that advertising is only allowed if its used to sell something? Maybe they believe that commercials should only deal in commerce and with no profits involved, the advertisement can't possibly be for real.


This is a no win scenario for FOX - if they run the ad they take heat from the left who throw them in with the "cling to my god and guns crowd", if they don't then they are anti-Christian...

I think they just figured that their fans would understand the justice in a policy evenly and fairly applied while their enemies would be hypocritical to attack them for not running it.

Way I see it; they chose the only viable course of action.
