ESPN Accused of Rejecting Ad Because 'Jesus and God are Poblematic' (Updated - CNN Does 180)Topics: Faith
Harsh words, and likely very true!
The Cardinal Glennon Children's Foundation told to TheBlaze on Thursday morning that sports network ESPN has rejected a Christmas-themed commercial from the Catholic organization because of its reference to celebrating "the birth of Jesus" and "God's healing message."UPDATE: ESPN does a 180:
Following public outcry on Thursday, ESPN tells TheBlaze it has reconsidered its position and will run a Christmas ad from the Cardinal Glennon Children's Foundation, which the network initially said failed to meet "commercial advocacy standards."Common sense, decency, respect for the tradition of Christmas ... and mostly because of the public outcry ... has brought ESPN to making the right decision that it should have made in the first place.
