SUPREME COURT TO DECIDE IF “F” WORDS AND PARTIAL NUDITY CAN BE USED ON TV

Talk about moral, spiritual and cultural implosion. Fox and ABC are trying to argue that it’s unconstitutional to ban obscenities and nudity from broadcast TV. If they win, watch the floodgates open to an even more rapid meltdown of cultural standards in the media. We may learn the High Court’s decision today. “The end of the Supreme Court term is quickly approaching. Along with landmark decisions about the health reform law and Arizona’s controversial immigration law, there are interesting cases having to do with the FCC, obscenities on television, jail sentences for minors and people who lie about receiving the medal of honor,” reports ABC News. “Here’s what to look out for between now and the final decisions being handed down before the end of the month: The court will decide whether the federal government’s policy for regulating indecency over the public airwaves during prime time is unconstitutional.  The case stems from celebrities such as Cher and Nicole Richie cursing on live television, as well as an episode of ABC’s ‘NYPD Blue’ that depicted partial nudity. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which is charged with regulating the public airwaves, found that the incidents violated its prohibitions against the broadcast of indecent material before 10 p.m. But lawyers for broadcasters such as Fox and ABC argue that the FCC’s policy is unconstitutionally vague and chills free speech. Facing daunting fines, the broadcasters argue that the government should no longer treat broadcast speech more restrictively than other media when it comes to the regulation of indecency over the airwaves.”

These are just the latest evidences of how much trouble our country is, and how much danger we are in of God removing His hand of favor from our nation, or actively beginning to judge us. This is why I wrote Implosion: Can America Recover From Its Economic & Spiritual Challenges In Time? And this is why I believe we urgently need to begin praying 2 Chronicles 7:14 for our country. In this passage, the Lord God Almighty said, “If My people who are called by My name humble themselves, pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”
