Unity is Overrated

When it comes to the extremist, faux-values riddled version of morality being spewed out by the anti-intellectuals and the far right, major news and media corporations are hesistant to make a stand. In fact, they’ve shown an increased willingness to jump on-board the bus towards what they hope will be higher ratings.

But fear not. At least when it comes to religious organizations that preach tolerance, CBS and other networks have stood up say that such messages are too controversial. CBS and UPN rejected a paid ad from a group called the United Church of Christ.

And what is their message that was ultimately deemed to be to controversial for network television?

It goes something like this: “[We] seek to welcome all people, regardless of ability, age, race, economic circumstance or sexual orientation.”

Concentration is important!
