The President has nominated Michael O’Rielly to be a Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), however Mr. O’Rielly has yet to address a very important question. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA) has signed onto a letter to the chairman and members of the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation asking that they ask specific questions of Mr. O’Rielly during today’s confirmation hearing.
Remember the end of April is the deadline for you to leave comments on the proposed changes to the FCC rules on broadcast television and radio obscenity. They propose to allow expletives and “brief non-sexual displays of nudity” during family hour — 6:00 p.m. till 10:00 p.m. The FCC wants to focus on penalizing only “egregious” cases not what they consider “minor” transgressions.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) wants your input on how it should handle expletives and “brief non-sexual displays of nudity”. Remember the FCC only has say over the content of broadcast TV and radio stations. Currently FCC rules state it is a violation to air obscene programming “at any time” and to air indecent programming or profane language “during certain hours.” They claim to have recently cleared 70 percent of its backlog of complaints — translation they dismissed the concerns of about a million Americans without investigating the complaint!
Those pushing for the legalization of abortion said it would create a world where all children would be wanted and loved. Child abuse would disappear and ‘we’d all live happily ever after.’ The exact opposite has happened. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide child advocacy group, has responded to the passage of the Protect Our Kids Act, H.R. 6655, last month.

Last year in Pennsylvania there were 3400 substantiated cases of child abuse, more than half of those were child sexual abuse. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania, (AFA of PA) a pro-decency group which educates on the dangers of pornography, has contacted Attorney General Linda Kelly asking her to make the connection between pornography consumption and child sexual abuse.
The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a broadcast decency advocate, is mostly pleased by the United States Supreme Court decision in the Federal Communications Commission v. Fox case handed down today upholding the federal broadcast decency law (18 USC 1464) including the “fleeting expletives” rule. As television programming aired over the people’s airwaves continues its assault on our senses the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) must do its part in enforcing the law.
The War on Illegal Pornography Coalition, of which the AFA of PA is a part, has announced a series of events throughout the next couple weeks to help expose the harms of pornography and to provide resources for those caught up in its web of deceit and support for their loved ones.
