What CBS and NBC think "free speech" means

This, courtesy of Joshua Micah Marshall:

The United Church of Christ (UCC) plans to run a major ad campaign in December to raise public awareness of the denomination. One of the ads is meant, in the words of a UCC press release, to convey the message "that -- like Jesus -- the United Church of Christ seeks to welcome all people, regardless of ability, age, race, economic circumstance or sexual orientation."
. . .
Yet, according to a press release out this evening from the UCC, both CBS and NBC have refused to air the ad because the subject matter is "too controversial."

I think that any thinking person should call or write CBS and NBC and ask them what's the big controversy. Perhaps they can explain their fence-sitting here.

Here's CBS contact info:

51 West 52nd Street
New York, NY 10019
Fax: 212-975-9174
Email: Diversity@cbs.com

Anyone with NBC contact information, feel free to supply it.

Go get 'em. . . .
