I received an email from a fellow blogger about the Congressional vote on the Fairness Doctrine and how an open vote in Senate refused to support the doctrine 87-11, but as Paul Harvey used to say, “now here is the rest of the story.” So behind closed doors Dick Durban attempts to slide into the back door, known as a rider, "take actions to encourage and promote diversity in communication media ownership," if passed this could effectively end free speech for certain radio stations, and of course bloggers. We would be made to give equal time on a subject to both the Christian point of view, and other religions and non-religions. Topics that may not be supportive of the biblical point of view, on marriage, pro-life issues etc. Why should a listener supported Conservative radio station have to tell the others sides point of view, if I wanted to hear K-Love give me the secular point on a subject I would listen to a secular radio station.
The other problem seems to be that as bloggers and conservative Christians we are getting information to quick out on the net, leaving the deceptive ones to have to scramble to defend themselves. In other words we are telling it like it is, and getting it to the public to fast for them to hide what they are doing. Thus they want the FCC to be able to monitor what bloggers are saying on the net. They want us to give equal time to the opposite point of view, well the way I see it if they want the opposite point of view out there they need to find, or create bloggers who have the opposite point of view. I am in no way going to support, or publish anything I do not agree with, that is the point of free speech.
For too long the AFLCIOU has been able to dictate to Christian believers where they can pray, when they can pray, and for that matter what constitutes a prayer. If they can hide behind separation of Church and State, then I should be allowed the same defense. We cannot allow them to stop the Christian writers from publishing what they want on the internet. I am not intruding into their homes, if they do not like what I say they simply have the right to hit the “X” symbol, and turn me off. I am not intruding into their kids lives in school again they do not have to read what I have to say.
The point is Congress and the rest of the political machine wants to censor what we as Christian writers are telling the voting public about what they are doing. They want to be able to monitor and block our points of view. Sounds to me like Satin is getting a little afraid of God’s word being disseminated out on the internet causing more people to believe in God, he is worried about losing souls to God, so maybe we are doing a good job. Keep up the good work, and get the Good News of the gospel out to the people who need it. Until next time this is Nadine signing off.
