[Taken from ZENIT]  An ad that promotes the potential of all life will not be shown on NBC during the Super Bowl on the grounds that it involves “political advocacy or issues.”

After several days of negotiations, an NBC representative in Chicago advised CatholicVote.org on Wednesday of it’s decision not to run an ad that features President Barack Obama and concludes with the tagline, “Life: Imagine the Potential.”

Brian Burch, president of CatholicVote.org said there was “nothing objectionable in this positive, life-affirming advertisement.”

He then noted the irony that while NBC refused their ad for being advocacy-based, an ad of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals — an advocacy group — was rejected because it depicted “a level of sexuality exceeding our standards.” The organization was then given a detailed list of edits that would make the spot acceptable.

“NBC claims it doesn’t allow advocacy ads, but that’s not true. They were willing to air an ad by PETA if they would simply tone down the sexual suggestiveness,” said Burch.

“The purpose of our new ad is to spread a message of hope about the potential of every human life, including the life of Barack Obama,” said Burch. “We are now looking at alternative venues to run the ad over the next several weeks.”

The ad aired on BET in Chicago on Inauguration Day. It has become an Internet hit with over 700,000 views in seven days. The ad was in the top 10 “most viewed'” category on YouTube on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20.

A CHILD’S WISDOM ABOUT MARRIAGE?

bridegroomAttending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her
mother, “Why is the bride dressed in white?”

The mother replied, “Because white is the color of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life.”

The child thought about this for a moment then said, “So why is the
groom wearing black?”

Refusing to speak to pro-life advocates in today’s March for Life, Obama made a statement that reiterated his support for Roe V. Wade: “We are reminded that this decision not only protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, but stands for a broader principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters. I remain committed to protecting a woman’s right to choose.”

It is suspected that President Obama will soon issue an executive order  reversing the Bush administration policy that bans the use of federal dollars by non-govermental organizations that discuss or provide abortions outside of the United States. It was thought that Obama would sign the executive order on the 36th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in all 50 states. 

Some of us are going to really miss President George W. Bush.

Martin Luther King, Jr. was a REPUBLICAN and PRO-LIFE???

Farnces Rice writes: “It should come as no surprise that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican. In that era, almost all black Americans were Republicans. Why? From its founding in 1854 as the anti-slavery party until today, the Republican Party has championed freedom and civil rights for blacks. And as one pundit so succinctly stated, the Democrat Party is as it always has been, the party of the four S’s: slavery, secession, segregation and now socialism.”
