Pretty Outrageous

CBS and NBC have refused to run an ad by the United Church of Christ that promotes the church's acceptance of gays.

The reason -- and this is the kicker -- according to CBS is "Because this commercial touches on the exclusion of gay couples...and the fact that the executive branch has recently proposed a Constitutional amendment to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman, this spot is unacceptable for broadcast."

So because the president has indicated he might propose an amendment banning gay marriage, CBS doesn't want to ruffle his feathers by airing an ad saying the UCC welcomes gays.

Josh has lots more.
