A foolish decision by a higher court

By: American Decency Staff

Second Circuit of Appeals in New York says the use of the words “f.” and “sh___” by Cher and Nicole Richie were not indecent. The decision by the Second Circuit Court out of New York was not unanticipated by decency insiders. A court in another region of the country may have seen it differently. However, this decision by this liberal court out of New York City shot down the decision reached by the FCC back on March 15, 2006. FCC Chairman Kevin Martin stated in a press release yesterday ” …. If we can’t restrict the use of the words “fu–” and “sh–” during prime time, Hollywood will be able to say anything they want, whenever they want. …” For his entire statement see: http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DOC-273602A1.pdf My comment: There are people that immediately say “So you want to bring back ‘Leave it to Beaver’, right?” Mocking me in my concern for what television has become. If the alternative is what we have gotten foisted down our throats for the last generations, my answer would be “Yeah. Give me ‘Leave it to Beaver’ because then our youth and families would be much less likely to be propagated with corruption via the Ellens, the Paris Hiltons, the Nicole Richies, the Chers, the Britneys: the Desperate Housewives, the Family Guys – ideas, thoughts, words and actions that corrupt, decay and erode innocence. How many have been degraded by the toxicity of CBS, NBC, Fox, ABC/Disney. How many persons over these generations would have been persons of kindness, gentleness, politeness, and yes, decency? Only the Lord knows. And, now, we have the two judges out of the Second Circuit Court of New York saying that the f word and the sh word are okay to be broadcast. [It was a 2-1 decision – one judge dissenting.] How it can be that men can be so well-educated and yet be so foolish is a regular theme of our day. Being wise they became fools the Bible says. See Romans 1. If such persons had a fear of God, would they be able to draw such conclusions? You be the judge, but ultimately there is only one ultimate judge. Pray for these men and pray for our country. Pray also for Mr. Kevin Martin as he tries to lead this current FCC against great opposition – even the opposition of Fox TV’s band of attorneys – quoting “We are very pleased with the court’s decision and continue to believe that government regulation of content serves no purpose other than to chill artistic expression in violation of First Amendment. …” Here are the quotes taken from the FCC’s determination undermined by the New York higher court. During the 2002 Billboard Music Awards, the entertainer Cher made the following comment: “I’ve had an unbelievable support in my life, and I’ve worked really hard. I’ve had great people to work with. Oh yeah, you know what? I’ve also had critics for the past 40 years saying that I was on my way out every year. Right. So f (expletive deleted by me) ’em. I still have a job and they don’t.” During the 2003 Billboard Music Awards, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie took part in the following exchange: Paris Hilton: “Now, Nicole, remember this is a live show, watch the bad language.” Nicole Richie: “Okay, [Lord’s name taken in vain -deleted by me.] Paris Hilton: “It feels so good to be standing here tonight.” Nicole Richie: “Yeah, instead of standing in mud and

. Why do they even call it ‘The Simple Life?’ Have you ever tried to get cow sh [expletive deleted by me] out of a Prada purse? It’s not so f [expletive deleted by me] simple.” ———————————– If you name the name of Christ as your Savior and Lord, you grieve over what television has become and what our nation is becoming. —————————————— American Decency Association Bill Johnson, President P.O.
