I had to laugh when the new ad for Pirates of the Carribean came on, and my immediate thought was the ladies of the RD section...followed by the thought that it was an odd coincidence - they refused to accept any religious ads, but still kept one that keeps the religious section together.
Do you think they SHOULD accept those commercials, provided they are not graphic? This year, it seemed pretty harmless. Or is it a one rule to rule them all situation?Answer Question

I think they would have to refuse that ad (the John 3:16 one) because to air that would be to open the gates to other ads from other faiths. If they refused to, say, show an ad about a Muslim (or any other non-Christian) article of faith, they would open the door to discrimination lawsuits. But if they were to accept ads from any faith, they would anger the Christian Right, who would most likely boycott the network and very vocally call for other companies to withdraw their advertising from the network, too. Fox is making a wise business decision to nip it before it becomes an issue. This little thing will blow over faster, because it follows an already stated policy, than would a full-blown lawsuit or boycott if they bent their rules for the John 3:16 ad.
