I have no idea where the expression "pig-biting mad" came from, but it works for me, especially right now.
An article in The American Prospect says that the doofuses over at ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox TV all refused to air an ad from the United Congregational Church.
The UCC wanted to promote the idea that they are open to all people, so their commercial shows a single black mom, a gay couple, a Middle Easterner and an old lady with a walker being catapulted out of their pews.
The they have the tag line "God doesn't reject people. Neither do we."
The networks say that they can't run the ad because they won't allow advertising that puts down one religion and promotes another. Hello? Now we can't make the point that it is wrong to discriminate because that is...um...er...discrimination?
What kind of wimpy weirdness is that? It makes me so angry that they are so afraid of the Christian right that they won't even run anything that is even slightly pro-gay (because you KNOW that's what this is all about, don't you?). Everyone kowtow to the Bigot Block, because they are organized and powerful and have a really mean Jesus on their side.
(Sorry, Jesus. I know it isn't about you.)
