NPR Silences Christian Speech


Freedom of speech. Not if you happen to speak in religious tones. This really does not come as any surprise to me. This is the first step in silencing any DISSENTING speech against an out of control government. NPR is owned by THE TAXPAYERS of which Christians are a part. Therefore all tax payers should be represented and not just those who happen to speak the same language as the government that controls them.

Free speech means just that. And when it comes to radio you can always turn the dial if you do not like what you are listening to which is exactly what I am going to do with NPR turn the dial off.

NPR logoIn 1985, National Public Radio (NPR) adopted a policy stating that member stations had to provide “nonsectarian, non-political, noncommercial” educational programming. But in February 2009, the wording was changed to say: “NPR Member Stations shall provide ONLY [emphasis added] nonsectarian, non-political, noncommercial educational content on all broadcast channel(s) and related media distribution platforms such as member partners that use the NPR member brands.”
The rule, which takes effect May 1, means that any NPR stations carrying religious programming must cease and desist that programming as of that date. In explaining its decision in a similar matter, PBS — another federally funded media outlet — says it “places a high value on presenting diverse perspectives, as opposed to rigidly adhering to any single political or religious point of view.” Allowing such programming, it continues, “would cause the public’s trust in PBS to erode, along with the value of the brand.”
