"Because this commercial touches on the exclusion of gay couples and other minority groups by other individuals and organizations," reads an explanation from CBS, "and the fact the Executive Branch has recently proposed a Constitutional Amendment to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman, this spot is unacceptable for broadcast on the [CBS and UPN] networks."

Does anybody have a pitchfork or torch?

Here are those good moral values that we so despretely need over the next four years. The less we see of those horrible gay and minority groups the better off our airwaves are? (scarcasim). I believe their justification is, until there are changes made to the Constitutional Amendment it's unacceptable to broadcast this dirty commercial?

Press release

I mean come on! We're talking about the United Church of Christ putting out a message that all human beings are welcomed in the eyes of god.

What gives CBS & NBC?

Oddly enough, the Viacom aired it on BET and Nick-at-Nite, but not on their CBS.

Unfortunately the squeaky wheel gets the grease, and as long as the neo-cons and the radical Christians whine and complain about those different from them, corporations (who get their money from groups that the radicals and neo-cons belong to) who control what we see and hear, will push their agenda of demonizing anyone different from them.

I heard about this shocking story on the Neil Rogers Show. I can't believe that someone finally promotes tolerance and these idiotic nutjobs at the big 3 refused to air it.

i'm going to avoid watching the big 3 or 4, this is just ridiculous.

We can have hundreds of ads for sex drugs, beer and other crap, but a message of tolerance gets denied.. unbelievable

You guys can't see thru this commercial? It is nothing more than an attack on Christian churches and Christian beliefs. I'm not aware of any Christian church that turns away black people, handicapped people, other minorities or even GAY people and thats what the commercial is promoting that other churches turn away people. All people are welcome in churches but those churches dont have to try to pretend that they are accepting of the gay lifestyle. If this church wanted to promote the LOVING message that they are more accepting of the gay lifestyle they could of done it in a better way that doesn't suggest the LIE that other dominations are barring minorities, the handicapped or gay people from entering their church. The commercial in its current form is nothing more than an attempted PC attack against fundamental Christian beliefs using false information. Most people are smart enough to see right thru this kind of propaganda.

I agree with zerotime.

If you have a message of love and inclusion, why the negative ad?

Could it be that controversy = attention?

Isn't this supposed to be the liberal biased media?

Can anyone say mercenary and shallow media?
