Preserve Free Speech

Preserve Free Speech on Radio and TV!

We face an imperative issue. The Broadcaster Freedom Act must pass Congress in order to protect the free speech of Christian and conservative broadcasters. We must speak out now to permanently prohibit the Federal Communications Commission and President Obama from reinstating the so-called “Fairness Doctrine,” legislation that would force broadcasters to strike an “even balance” on the issues at their own expense. I find this to be completely unfair, I myself like to watch Christian television and listen to Christian radio. Why should they have to show another perspective? Are they going to show the Christian perspective on all the other channels? I doubt it. If someone doesn't like what they see or hear on the radio or television they can turn the channel, why make this law? The “Fairness Doctrine", doesn't sound very fair to me.

Please, exercise your rights as a concerned citizen and call on Congress to vote on this vitally important legislation, the Broadcaster Freedom Act of 2009 (H.R. 226; S. 34).

Thanks for the heads-up on this, Thomas. It's good to know that somebody's at least trying to preserve our freedoms.

God be with you Thomas!

I listened to ACLJ on the radio yesterday. I am so glad the people of ACLJ are on their toes. They found those small little details in that "stimulus" package they were talking about yesterday also that will discriminate against a college or university for allowing religious activity. In other words, if they allow even equal time for religious groups and school groups, they will not get any funding from the stimulus package. Thank God for Jay Seculow and the ACLJ team and thank God for you Thomas, getting the word about all this out there!

Hey Lori and newchristian920, I know if they take Jesus off of the radio and tv, some people may never hear about him and what he did for the salvation of the world.

Hey, Thomas...thanks for this...Jay Sekulow has been in there fighting for awhile now...may the Lord keep him strong.

I didn't know about that stimulus pkg. bit...devilish opposition always shows up somewhere, doesn't it, one way or the other? Even after over 30 yrs. as a believer, when I hear abt. things like this, I sometimes feel like crying...

Yeah I hear you Christina, I guess we should be use to it by now. Our Lord is not of this world and the world just doesn't understand.
