TV is NOT Liberal

The United Church of Christ has a new ad campaign out that AGAIN has been rejected by all of the major networks claiming "it's a controversial, issue-advocacy ad".

The "Ejector" commercial shows various groups of people getting the "boot" out of church, including a single African-American mother with a crying baby, a gay couple, an Arab-American, a disabled person, and a homeless woman. The closing says, "The United Church of Christ - no matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you're welcome here."

This is a bad message???

I've been to a church where a homeless woman was given the cold shoulder because she couldn't afford to wear a designer dress and a Louis Vuitton purse. These attitudes are VERY real though not as literal as the commercial implies.

When someone wants a place to worship God, why should they EVER be or feel rejected? How is it okay to show erectile dysfunction ads on TV but not an ad for an inclusive Christian church? Since when did it become okay for the leaders of our country to flip the bird in church, say "goddamn" in reference to our Constitution, and "go fuck yourself" to their colleagues without reprisal, but they have the nerve to judge the lives of gay people?

How did we become this nation?

Yeah, you're right! I knew it was rhetorical, but sometimes I still shake my head and wonder how this happened.

I once trudged to church through a foot of snow in my boots and ski pants. When I arrived, a snooty usher in stiletto pumps and power suit literally sneered at me.

No one sneers now. I'm pagan and proud!
