The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is considering allowing blue language and “non-sexual” nudity on broadcast TV and radio.
Due to the backlog of complaints, the out-going FCC Chairman, Julius Genachowski, had asked the agency to only address “egregious cases.” So whether or not this is simply resignation by an overtaxed commission, or someone inside pushing a non-family-friendly agenda is unknown.
AFA President Tim Wildmon commented:
American society is moving further and further away from the Biblical standards of morals and decency set by God, to the point that we have to worry about what our children view in the supermarket checkout, in their school textbooks, and now even in their own homes on television and radio. We’re urging the FCC to uphold high decency standards in entertainment in order to protect America’s children and families.
The AFA clarifies precisely what this would entail:
Specifically, if enacted, the new FCC policy would allow network television and local radio stations to air the f-word, the s-word and to allow programs to show frontal female nudity, even during hours when they know children will be watching and listening.
To weigh in on this possible shameful decision, and hopefully stop the erosion of our good and decent society even further, the American Family Association has set up a user friendly action site here.
