Censorship

I was in the car yesterday listening to Mike FM (We play everything), and one of my favorite bands came on, Panic! At the Disco. They have lots of songs about religion (catholicism, usually…though its just talking about it, not promoting it or putting it down), and the one which came on has the line:

Haven’t you people ever heard of closing a god damn door?!

Well, when the radio station played the song, every time they said the word “god” it was censored. They left “damn” in, but censored god. Why is that? God isn’t a swear. It’s just a religious word. What about the Atheists who like PATD? Won’t they be offended? God is just a religious idea. The FCC can’t charge for not censoring it, thats mixing government and religion.

Just like printing “In god we trust” on money, and having “Under god” in our pledge of alliegence, but thats another rant for another time.

Don’t censor god if you’re not going to censor damn. If you censor damn, you’re being overzealoused with the bleeper. :P

    “The FCC can’t charge for not censoring it, thats mixing government and religion.”

    Yes, unfortunately people are “finding” ways to exploit tiny loopholes in the Constitution, making it legal to do these things.

    Like stopping that girl from talking about God in her graduation speech. The government isn’t taking a side on God in that! She was just telling people about how God had changed her life.

    That shouldn’t be illegal, expressing what you believe to be true.
