Freedom of speech and religion?

It has to happen...how else can Obama take over the world? For some the broadcast of sermons on radio and TV is all they can get because they are unable to attend services but that will soon be stopped too. The Obamacrat Assault on Religion -- Democrats are not only hoping to silence conservative talk-radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh -- they're taking aim at religious broadcasters that stand in the way of a liberal social revolution. Our report reveals how, once Obama's appointees gain control of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Obama's appointees plan to start filing complaints in order to shut Christian broadcasting down. It's only a matter of time before we will not be able to pick or choose what we see or listen to. What's your take on this matter? Should the government have total control of the FCC?

I think I will have to see how this plays out. I am always a little skeptical and think people jump a little to fast to thinking people are taking away freedoms. I don't think the government should have total control over the FCC or anything else for that matter. I also don't think the Democrats are going to put a stop to all broadcasting from people they don't agree with, I just don't think that can happen here. Maybe I am a bit naive but I am just not ready to jump on board with all the conspiracys out there.

Just like they took religion out of school they are now trying to take it off of radio and TV broadcasting. Children no longer say the pledge allegiance to our flag because some people complained about that then the minute set aside for prayer has been removed, not even a minute of silent prayer is allowed. It will slowly but surly happen if we the people don't try to stop the governmental control over us. I understood that our government worked for us not against us but it seems as if that has been our biggest "change".

With all due respect, do you have a link to your source showing that Obama is planning on banning any religious programming on the tv and radio? I don't watch religious programming, but I do respect the right of other do to so if that's what makes them happy. But, to play devils advocate, do you hear and see a lot of religious programming, or is it Christian programming that you're hearing or seeing. The US is a multicultural country. If you're going to have these programs for one faith, you should have them for all, or none at all, otherwise how free a country is it really?

It is fair...whoever has MONEY and backing of sponsors can put on a program as long as it adheres to the FCC rules. No one is stopping any other religions from broadcasting...if they can pay for airtime.

First of all, upon searching for a source for this little item of information, I couldn't find anything other than far-right conspiracy nut/anti-liberal websites. Not exactly something that endears me to the legitimacy of your news. Secondly, the FCC shouldn't exist period. It was created by congress to control and monitor the radio, and it's turned into a draconian dictator of speech on TV and Radio. It exists to stifle free speech, and has since it's creation. This is not a democrat/republican issue, it's a constitutional one. The FCC needs to go.

I'd also like to know your source. We must always strive to stay on top of planned changes because we still have a lot of power when it comes to our voices, but we have to be sure that we know what we're talking about. If this is the plan, it's wrong, and will be no easy thing to achieve...just as talk of bringing down conservative talk radio has caused much outrage, we still how the power of our voices.

Animal Farm, 1984. All I can say is that they are right on time with Biblical prophesy.

Absolutely not! they should only be regulating the waves themselves. If a station is inappropriate, DONT LISTEN! This control has gotten way out of hand and not just with the FCC.
