That Liberal Media

This is pretty stunning. The networks won't run an ad by the UCC which says "like Jesus -- the United Church of Christ seeks to welcome all people, regardless of ability, age, race, economic circumstance or sexual orientation."

And their justification?

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

So, because Bush doesn't want federal or state recognition of marriage, a church can't even advertise that they welcome anyone in their doors?

This is so fucked up.
