Yesterday, Jeffrey Lord posted an excellent article on the Spectator site called "FCC-Church Conspiracy to Silence Talk Radio and Fox". This is a must read. Were you aware that your church may be involved in the attempt to shut down free speech?
From his article:
• The media package sent to UCC church members by Guess also solicits support to remove Lou Dobbs from television and intimidate sponsors of Glenn Beck's TV show into pulling their advertising. The link for this is here: http://www.uccfiles.com/swms/
• The following religious denominations have agreed to sign on to the request to the FCC. They are: the United Church of Christ, U.S. Catholic Conference of Bishops, the Islamic Society of North America, United Methodist Communications, Presbyterian Church USA, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and several other "faith groups".
• These religious groups are to convey the idea that talk radio and Fox News are guilty of "hate speech" as illustrated by links naming or presenting Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, Lou Dobbs, Michael Savage in this fashion."

This is surprising to many, but it's not new. They have been acting on behalf of their national membership for years. Check out the activities of the National Council of Churches from Discover the Networks:
Here is even more on the church connection to ACORN and other groups, which has gone on for years:
As if this latest attempt isn't enough, they apparently also have an agenda to do with net neutrality. Check out their promotion here:
In their little animation, they claim that you have a right to broadband....a right. Although I can see some advantages to net neutrality, I am extremely suspicious of the motives behind it. It is being pushed as hard as their other causes, and there is obviously much more to it.
Are you a member of one of these participating churches? If so, you might want to ask your pastor exactly why you are involved in endorsing a far left political agenda.
