Church_1road.jpg CBS and NBC refuse to air 30-second spot from United Church of Christ welcoming gays and minorities. “The 30-second commercial features two muscle-bound ‘bouncers’ standing guard outside a picturesque church and selecting which persons are permitted to attend Sunday services, and turning away apparent gays and persons of color. Written text interrupts the scene, announcing, ‘Jesus didn’t turn people away. Neither do we.'” Watch ad.
