Everybody's linking to the United Church of Christ news release, that states that their television commercial (which says that everyone is welcome at their church) is not going to air on CBS, UPN (which is owned by CBS) or on NBC. There are good web log write ups of it.



Here's the letters I wrote:

My Name and Address

Leslie Moonves
President & CEO
CBS Television
51 West 52nd Street
New York, NY 10019

December 1, 2004

Dear Mr. Moonves,

I am writing to ask you to reconsider running the United Church of Christ advertisement on CBS and UPN stations. Their message of tolerance and acceptance is well in keeping with the CBS Diversity Policy, and more importantly, it is a message that millions of Americans believe in.

As I write, I'm not watching the "Rudolph" Christmas special. I've seen it dozens of times, always thrilled when it finally came on when I was a kid, always looked forward to the happy memories as an adult. But I don't want to watch CBS tonight. I'm too amazed by your decision to advance President Bush's stated position on defining marriage by denying this advertisement air time.

I am not a member of any minor group represented in this advertisement. I am not a member of the United Church of Christ. Please allow this advertisement to run. Tolerance and acceptance are what America needs more than ever, and you can make a difference here.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely yours,



My Name

Dear Mr. Wright,

I am writing to ask you to reconsider running the United Church of Christ advertisement on NBC stations. Their message of tolerance and acceptance is a message that millions of Americans believe in. Any and all religious faiths should be allowed to present their message to the people. The airwaves are owned by all of us, for all of us.

I am not a member of any minor group represented in this advertisement. I am not a member of the United Church of Christ. Please allow this advertisement to run. Tolerance and acceptance are what America needs more than ever, and you can make a difference here.

Thank you for your time.


Sincerely yours,



My Name
