Text:
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.
..
Truth:
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.
