The United Church of Christ has had another inclusive ad rejected by all major networks for being too “issue oriented.” The point of the ads is to reach out to people who feel alienated from church. You can view the ads here. They are hysterical.
Interestingly, the networks embrace the Christian Right — which is decidedly NOT mainstream Christianity — while shutting out a simple message like “you are welcome at our church.” Hmmm ….undoubtably the liberal media bias is at work here.
BTW, I did a search on the UCC homepage and found 20 congregations within 20 miles of downtown Pgh.
