Morning Radio Shows are just as bad. Driving to school and the morning show is talking about sexual positions and sex toys is rude, foolish and disgusting. You must monitor the time that this type of material is going to air.

Pity you didn’t make a big deal over the GUN being fired! I guess that’s OK for morning viewing.

Right!!! That’s what I wrote. there are too many domestic gun-related violence and homicides towards women as it is and they have to do that! It’s outrageous!

LOT’S of free publicity for GMA and ABC…and up their ratings go, humans being the curious creatures they are. Nice job. Playing right into their hands.

For those who would like to contact GMA–I googled contact ABC NEWS–click on the first site–when you get there scroll down to Good Morning America.
Thanks for that.

I stand by you Rebeca. My wife and I too will not go “into that darkness without a very loud, very public, foot-stomping, loud-voiced, fist-raising, steely-eyed FIGHT.” Thank you for taking a stand. Thanking for voicing the minority that believe that sex is been devalued.

I happened to only today see your story on CNN because I was searching for a documentary they aired. I will tell you that I’m outraged that that ad appeared on tv in the morning. Not only did it show a naked couple with the man mounting the woman throwing her on the table (which to me adds a bit of S&M to it but there was also a “GUN” shown. I didn’t know if you focused on that but it added even more to the outrageousness of this. I was gone overseas during the airing of this but you indicate it showed in Reston, Va. and I live in Va/DC area so it probably showed her on ABC 7.
Now with that said, you said you filed a complaint with FCC. Good luck with that! I will tell you that I have filed two complaints about them airing not just semi porn but what I would consider porn on primetime series shows. I guess your allowed to air anything you want these days but I thought that even on primetime networks, they had to hold the line to this kind of material. Cable I suppose is different. But what family doesn’t have cable these days?
At any rate, after filing my complaints with FCC, I got return letters telling me that they don’t see any violation and furthermore, had a list on the ltr of my two previous complaints that they rejected as folly as if they are stacking them up as proof that I am a complainer or something. I do not think that they care frankly especially when you see all of the Viagra and Cialis ads all morning and night that talk about “when you are ready for sex, or when she’s ready for sex” don’t let erectile dysfunction stop you, use these pills. don’t you think the kids want to know what this is about and why do we need to have to explain it to childen. My boys are grown and I’m glad because what is shown on ads and many of the shows even those that are supposed to be comedy is slutty and racy laced with semi-cussing and sex innuendos. And don’t get me started on the guns and violence.
What has happened to the Family Council that is supposed to be watching television and they were connected with the FCC or so I thought. They had some power but they seem to have disappeared probably beat down by the FCC who I think now are nothing more than kissing up to network corporations I fear. It is sad. I support you every step of the way on this. If I see it myself, I am going to write to ABC. So far, I haven’t.
Thank you for your bringing this issue and I’m glad at least that you got to be interviewed on CNN which raised the issue to the public.

Such a positive response. Thank God for you. The challenge, as you stated, is the FCC. They are not patrolling TV or radio for the profanity or the profane issues that are being mentioned on these mediums.
What ever I can do to mimic or duplicate the type of support you are giving, please let me know.

What exactly is “semi-porn”? A torso?
September 18, 2013 at 1:58 pm
Can’t remember if I wrote semi-porn and what I meant was soft porn. but whatever you call it, porn is porn and shouldn’t be on tv during the hrs that children can see it or hear it. Yes, I agree with the write who said a radio show was talking about sex toys and the like, that’s not okay either unless it is on a certain hour and they inform the listener that they are about to talk about sensitive subjects that are not for young children’s ears!

Thank you, Rebeca, for speaking out against the offensive commercials. Despite the continued moral decline of this culture, I am so very thankful that God is in control.

Turn off your TV instead of trying to control it. You and your children will be better for it.
August 19, 2013 at 8:50 am
That is an option for sure. 🙂

You are absolutely correct.

Some things are just inappropriate….our youth group went to a teen revival called “Culture Shock” just before school started and the message the last night was on similar material. He first started out by asking the kids what their favorite TV shows were, then their favorite movies, some of which I am ashamed to say that I have watched and some I would come within fifty feet of watching. Then he starting reading the lyrics from the top 5 songs on the music charts. As he was reading some of the lyrics, a silence blanketed the room from one side of the building to the other and some of the girls from our own youth group made the statement ” I am really ashamed that I know that song, even more that I sing the song.” He used the scripture in Phillipians 4:8 to hit home his point that how people have subconsciously accepted the destructive progression of Immorality and self-gratification tiny bit by tiny bit so when we see something as explicit as two naked people in a commercial (of all things) for an upcoming series or sing along the words to a song that talks about raping a woman, that we have become so numb to the progression that we say “Wow” , with little effect to the very essence of our soul. The essence in our heart that says “that is really inappropriate and wrong’. But yet we do nothing about it. It’s not about trying to control the TV. It’s about protecting our children. Sex should be something that is considered sacred and to be shared with your spouse when you are married, not given instruction on how to perform it at the age of 8 or 9; which, by the way, is the average age for a first look at pornography these days. If we expose our children to sex, drugs, violence and other destructive behaviors at such an early age, even when we don’t realize we are, what do you think they will look for when they get just a few years older? We must protect our children!

Similar thing happened to me, while as a family we were watching “how it’s made” a “G” rated show. I went on every discovery communications, how it’s made, national geographic site and raised cain. I finally, got a response though when I found the CEO’s address and mailed my complaint directly to his home. Of course they wanted to know more about how I found his address, than about the show, which they apologized for showing the naked butt of a strange man walking down the beach in front of my 8 and 6 year old daughters while we were waiting to watch the shows “how it’s made” on shredded wheat. If this was sent to my children on a phone someone would be arrested for sending pornography to a minor, but on TV it’s OK? No, it’s not. Thanks for making a ruckus

The other morning i was watching the 700 club and really feeling the love of God, when there was a commercial break. Let me tell you, brothers and sisters of our Lord Jesus Christ, the worst thing happened. The very first commercial was for gay marriage! I was SHOCKED. The gays are taking over our Christian values and forcing their sins upon us, the righteous. We can not let these sinners take us down with them. I wrote my congressman and asked him what can be done to stop these ads from being on TV and trying to turn our children gay. He said we should write the FCC and explain our Christian values and how the gays are hurting our children with their sinful ways of putting it on TV during Christian programming. I fear that the sinners are systematically aiming for the minds of our precious children in their evil attempt to turn everyone gay. Please write the FCC and tell them we can not accept sin being promoted on the very TV we share watching the word of God.
