TV Stations Ban 'Speechless...Silencing the Christians'
Stations bow to pressure from handful of homosexual activists
February 13, 2009
Two TV stations, WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids, MI and WSYX-TV in Columbus, OH, have banned a television special showing how the media is silencing Christians. The stations bowed down to the demands of a handful of homosexual activists and banned the showing of our TV special "Speechless...Silencing the Christians." The one-hour TV special was scheduled to be shown on the stations, but the stations yanked the program after agreeing to run it. AFA was paying for the time.
You can order a DVD of the one-hour TV special "Speechless...Silencing the Christians" and show it in your church. See for yourself and let your church members see the AFA special that the stations banned!
Or, order all 14 of the original 22-minute episodes of "Speechless...Silencing the Christians" with a discussion guide, and show them in your church.
Oddly enough, the TV special shows how the media censors Christians, which is exactly what these two stations did!
They said the program was "controversial." The stations do not consider showing two lesbians or two homosexuals kissing or getting into bed with each other controversial. The stations do not consider all the profanity they air controversial. They regularly show network programs advocating the homosexual agenda, but those programs are not considered controversial. However, a special showing of Christians being silenced is controversial!
The manager of the Columbus station told AFA the station would not air the program because telling the truth about homosexuality did not represent "positive Christianity." Are we moving to a time in the near future when local pastors whose services are broadcast will be banned because their sermons call the practice of homosexuality a sin?
Please, forward this critical message to your family and friends today!
