College and university speech codes are not the only, perhaps not even the most important, contemporary threats to freedom of speech. CBS and NBC have rejected a commercial produced by the United Church of Christ as"too controversial." You can view it here. The irony of this rejection would be delicious, were it not also vicious. The United Church of Christ is the primary legacy to contemporary America from New England's Puritans. As such, it could not be more mainstream Protestant and, yet, its simple statement of tolerance is judged"too controversial" for American eyes to see and ears to hear. You'd think that if John Winthrop's grandchildren don't have a problem with it, Edward R. Murrow's grandchildren shouldn't either. You can join me in protesting to NBC and CBS officials here.
