FCC Complaint
« on: January 17, 2008, 08:15:00 AM »
ABC allows f-word during Good Morning America show

File a complaint with the FCC against ABC and your local station for airing the f-word.



This past Tuesday (Jan. 15), ABC network broadcast stations aired "Good Morning America." During the course of the program, ABC affiliates chose to broadcast actress Diane Keaton's blatant use of the f-word.

Transcript of interview with Diane Sawyer:

Keaton: "Those lips, I love them. I would like to have lips like that. Then I wouldn't have worked on my f---ing personality. Excuse me, my personality. If I had lips like yours, I'd be better off. My life would be better. I would be married. I have these thin lips."

Sawyer: "My mother is going to work on your personality with soap in your mouth."

ABC and your local station have been warned about allowing the f-word on the public airwaves. The network could have easily muted the obscenity. But it chose not to. The network stations purposely chose to violate Federal and FCC law by airing the program.

Here is your opportunity to make the networks more sensitive to your concern. Please file a complaint with the FCC against ABC stations for the broadcast of indecent language.

Take Action!

File a formal complaint against your local ABC station for airing the f-word during Good Morning America.

Although I really don't want to hear that kind of language on TV or anywhere else, the vast majority of people in America use that word on a regular basis, and in front of women and children.  In fact, most of the non-Christian women I know, and even a few that claim Christ as savior, use it more then the men, so it's a little hard for me to get all up in arms about this.....

Not only that, but the supreme court seems to have gutted the FCC's ability to do much of anything about this sort of thing.

Of course, the less power the government has, the better I like it.  I don't really want the FCC or any other governmental entity having the ability to tell me what I can and can't say and when or where.  Yeah, sometimes I don't like what I hear from the mouths of others, but when they can regulate what people say to that degree, then they can stop me from saying anything about Jesus.  That sword cuts both ways.

more liberal views. This is why the church is so dead today. The Lord has already made it clear that we are not to speak like this and to not want too have laws concerning it say that God must be wrong. I realize that it is popular to stand against the Lord but it is very sad to hear claimed Christians doing it. However it is not surprising since scripture does tell us that the last age will be a dead one.
I am afraid that our rights have gone astray and the only thing that will wake us up is to lose them totally.May the Lord make it so!

Actually by definition, liberals want more laws to allow the government to control every aspect of our lives.  Conservatives want more freedom from government control.

Saved, you can't legislate morality.  Even Jesus recognized that-it creates whitewashed tombs.  We did that experiment in the 1920's during prohibition and it costs hundreds of lives and created people like Al Capone who then corrupted thousands.

I hear that word literally dozens if not hundreds of times a day working in a secular environment.  Maybe I'm innoculated against it's offense, but I also don't want the secret police dragging them and their filthy mouths away....

By your view we would do away with all laws since we cannot legislate  morality. Strange isn't it that God gave laws! Perhaps he was wrong. As for All the law did not make him. he did! The law actually worked too put him away. There was no problem with the law only the law keepers. This is not about secret police, but about a certain amount of morality.  By your standard there would be open porn on the TV and like those who seek such they could claim all we have to do is turn it off. However any study will tell you that open vulgarities have a tendency to drag down,not promote. So like I said;

"more liberal views. This is why the church is so dead today.

Oh for crying out loud, get your head out of your ivory palace and come back down here to the little place called earth.

None of  us said we wanted to hear such nasty talk everywhere.  All I am saying is that if you give the government the right to keep a non-Christian from using profanity, that very same law will eventually be turned against you when you try to speak for Christ.  It is a bad idea.

I don't want a law that says someone can't say a bad word.  I want people to love God and choose to abstain from such talk.  I would rather teach others a better way to live than waste my time, money and energy on some law that will only come back to bite me in the end.

Look up the meaning of the term- liberal.

By the way, could you show me a list of words that God forbids us to say besides using His name in vain?

Then you probably would not want the Lord since He is a law giver. Liberals always choose that whhich is against the Lord and claim it to be from righteousness. So lets do away with all laws and hope for the best.

I think we had this debate a while back when I used the word "ass". It was in the thread about the queer pastor that got busted in Colowierdo. It appears that occassionally people do change their minds on this forum. That's a good thing.

And, John you are absolutely correct there is no list of words other than the Lords name which is forbidden. However, if ones conscience is offended by using the word they should not.

While I will agree that using such a word on television is tasteless and crude I would submit that the church today has far more pressing matters in need of it's attention than some Hollywood skanks choice of vocabulary.
John 14:6 Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except by me."
Sometimes the Gospel is not presented clearly enough for the non-elect to reject it.

I've just come to the place where I understand that my ministry focus isn't all about telling people what is right and wrong.  It's about introducing them to Christ, and once they accept Him as Lord, most of that other stuff will work itself out on it's own through the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

2 Cor 3:6
He is the one who has helped us tell others about his new agreement to save them. We do not tell them that they must obey every law of God or die; but we tell them there is life for them from the Holy Spirit. The old way, trying to be saved by keeping the Ten Commandments, ends in death; in the new way, the Holy Spirit gives them life.

I see how blind many have become. Without works faith is dead. Many today claim to spread the way to life but instead they make men twice the sons of hell as themselves. Dead though they claim to be alive.

Eph 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

Col 3:8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

there is only one that I know that diligently strives to promote filthy speech but he has many who seek to defend it.

What we are seeing here in the defense of the profane is this;

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves
teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” (2 Timothy 4:3-4).
Isaiah 48:18,Oh that you had paid attention to my commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.

The legalist, the liberal, and the deceived needs a list. The humble in spirit and righteous knows in their heart that the Spirit has not ordained certain words and manners of speech. No list is needed.

Eph 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

The lack of ability to discern is the first warning in a life that the Spirit is absent. While men grow more and more self proclaiming as too their spiritual life many in fact grow more and more self deceived. We are have been warned this;

2Ti 3:1 ¶ This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.


 2Ti 3:2  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,


 2Ti 3:3  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,


 2Ti 3:4  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;


 2Ti 3:5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

2Ti 4:3  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
2Ti 4:4  And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables

The time is at hand and the place is here!
Isaiah 48:18,Oh that you had paid attention to my commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.
