My father-in-law sent me an email about this case of blantant censorship against the UCC:

The UCC’s first 30-second television advertisement – part of the denomination’s new, broad identity campaign – began airing nationwide on Dec. 1, stating that – like Jesus – the United Church of Christ seeks to welcome all people, regardless of ability, age, race, economic circumstance or sexual orientation.

The ad has been accepted and will air on a mix of broadcast and cable networks, including ABC Family, AMC, BET, Discovery, Fox, Hallmark, History, Nick@Nite, TBS, TNT, Travel and TV Land.

On the eve before the campaign’s launch, negotiations with CBS and NBC broke down, after the networks deemed the UCC’s all-inclusive message as “too controversial.”

While I am not a member of the UCC, I believe what the networks are doing is wrong. Since when is inclusion controversial?
