    FCC is getting rid of Christian radio.

    I recently heard that FCC is planning on making Christian radio stations play
    standard radio. Meaning that they will have to play what everyone else
    plays like My Humps and talk about Britney Spears, they will no longer play
    any Christian songs. But there is one thing people can do to stop whats
    going on and thats to sign a petition on your local Christian radio wbsites.
    But what I want to know is how do you feel about what FCC is doing and
    would you sign the petition or would you be glad to hear that Christian radio
    will be no more. Please reply back and don't make this into me just trying
    to be one of those Crusaders trying to rid the world of evil or me trying to
    get my way selfishly because to be honest I love rock 'n roll music but I
    also like Christian music.

    Actually, it is very very unlikely that this is true... (have any web links that show otherwise?!?!) just on Freedom of Speech, and Separation of Church and State grounds. Trying to have a discussion and debate about an obvious falsehood isn't much of a discussion and debate....
    FAVOURITE THREADS EXPLAIN why, or risk an infraction.

    Modern Myth

    snopes.com: Petition to Ban Religious Broadcasting
    0031 - The O'hare radio hoax

    FCC-Religious Broadcast Rumor Denied
    A rumor has been circulating since 1975 that the late Madalyn Murray O'Hair, a widely known, self-proclaimed atheist, proposed that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) consider limiting or banning religious programming.

    These rumors are untrue. In December 1974, Jeremy D. Lansman and Lorenzo W. Milam filed a petition (RM-2493) asking the FCC to inquire into the operating practices of stations licensed to religious organizations, and not to grant any new licenses for new noncommercial educational broadcast stations until the inquiry had been completed. The FCC denied this petition on August 1, 1975. Ms. O'Hair was not a sponsor of this petition.

    Since that time, the FCC has received mail and telephone calls claiming that Ms. O'Hair started the petition and that the petition asked for an end to religious programs on radio and television. Such rumors are false. The FCC has responded to numerous inquiries about these rumors and advised the public of their falsehood. There is no federal law that gives the FCC the authority to prohibit radio and television stations from broadcasting religious programs.

    For general information on other telecommunication-related issues, you may contact the FCC's Consumer & Governmental Affairs Bureau by e-mail at [email protected], or at the address below. You may also call the FCC's Consumer Center at 1-888-CALL-FCC (1-888-225-5322) voice or 1-888-TELL-FCC (1-888-835-5322) TTY.

    Re: FCC is getting rid of Christian radio.

    Alright its something called localism and FCC is now going to make Christian
    radio stations will have to air the others opinions which is fine with me but I
    find that when the do this theres a lot of bleeping of the words. And it means
    that people are worried about it strangling the Christian media. And also
    that they want them to answer to community boards that could wind up
    changing the programming you hear on radio stations. But basicly what
    they are trying to do is inforce the fairness doctrine. Currently FCC is
    required to have a period of public comment before proceeding.
    How I know all this is a email from my local Christian radio station.

    At most the FCC could only limit what could be said on Christian radio, meaning limiting such things as opposition to gay marriage under the guise of hate speech, etc... either way it wouldn't happen, too many people would oppose it.
