I like this quote:

"We find it disturbing that the networks in question seem to have no problem exploiting gay persons through mindless comedies or titillating dramas, but when it comes to a church's loving welcome of committed gay couples, that's where they draw the line."

Maybe a TV show about a chuech that welcomes Gay people can be in the works?

This is such a nice, friendly message, and they won't put it on the air. Something is wrong with this picture the way I see it. That denomination is the church my own sister married in, my in-laws are ministers in it. I don't like this news.

first 'saving private ryan' and now this. the networks have their heads up their asses.

there are truly offensive things on the telly at any given time: the simple life, desperate housewives, nearly all of the current music videos, and let's not forget the plethora of assinine beer commercials. heaven forbid they'd air a commercial with an intelligent message promoting tolerance and acceptance.

Obviously gays should be on TV only to amuse us. Hopefully this news story will draw more attention to the United Church of Christ's loving message than the ad would have.

Its really very disturbing the amount of pressure the US media is feeling from the Govt in regards to certain issues.

Networks are very uncomfortable with showing any liberal Christian denomination, which is why many of us look at the "religious right" for a target. I read some time ago that 78% of democrats believe in God, not a far cry from the 80% of republicans that do as well.

The PCUSA is a denomination of the Presbyterian Church that leans more liberal than the PSA - a more conservative outfit. You basically have to talk to biblical scholars to get info like this, it's really kind of sad.

Other than the whole Gene Robinson thing, I can't think of one instance where the media has bothered to inform its audience that there are quite a few predominately white churches and denominations that lean liberal.

I read about this issue on dailykos, and now I'm looking into the United Church of Christ. I like what I've read, and I'm going to try to attend our local church's service this Sunday.

I belong to the United Church of Christ and have known about the ad campaign since October. I was very excited about the welcoming ads. I viewed the ad as welcoming to all people and even missed the point that it is targeted towards someone that is gay?

I am really upset by this negative publicity. Why is it that people feel the need to critize an ad that is welcoming people into Christianity?

I hope you have a great experience Diane. I LOVE the Church I found.
