URBAN LEGEND: Madalyn Murray O’Hair
Madalyn Murray O’Hair is lobbying to take Christian radio off the air. ..
Famed athiest, O’Hair, is trying to get Christian radio off the air. readers are asked to write to the FCC in Washington quote some fictious docket #.
Popular: 1980s to today
Signs that this is false:
Most obvious are the spelling and grammatical mistakes in the photocopy. The FCC says that they’ve received more mail on this one issue than for any other reason.
There is no petition to remove Christian radio. This rumour makes the church look stupid! All FCC policies and trial balloons are simply a matter of public record. In fact, Christian radio stations are still springing up all over.
My own experience:
The most recent paper I received was from STAR SONG, a gospel label, in August 1991. Certainly STAR SONG knows better, however some ding-a-ling in the mail room probably inserted the sheet. Undoubtedly, the sheet was reproduced on the STAR SONG photocopier, which is THEFT.
