PETITION TO STOP PETITION # 2493
Madelyn Murry O'Hare, an atheist whose effort successfully eliminated
Bible reading and prayer from all public schools fifteen years ago,
has been granted a federal hearing in Washington, D.C., on the subject
(F.C.C. The Petition R.M. # 2493) which would pave the way to stop the
reading of the Gospel on the airways of America. She took her
petition with 27,000 signatures to back her stand.
If her attempt is successful, as her last one was, then all Sunday
worship services being broadcast either by radio or television will be
stopped. Many elderly people and shut-ins, as well as those
recuperating from hospitalization or illness, depend on radio or
Television to fulfill their worship needs every week. If there should
be any controls on religious broadcasting it should be limited to the
solicitation of funds by religious Evangelists.
Madelyn is also campaigning to remove all Christmas programs,
Christmas songs and carols from public schools.
You can help this time! We need one million (1,000,000) signed
letters. This should defeat Mrs. O'Hare by showing that there are
still many Christians alive, well, and concerned in our county. This
petition is #2493. Sign, cut out, and mail the form below. Please DO
NOT sign as Mr. And Mrs., but sign individually. Let each adult sign
one separately and send it in. Be sure to write "PETITION #2493" on
the LOWER LEFT HAND CORNER OF THE ENVELOPE. This is very important.
Please have this letter copied and send it to ten people who will
share our concern.

Re: Petition #2493
Dear Commission Members:
I am an American and proud of my heritage. I am also very much aware
of the place religious faith has played in the freedom we, as
Americans, now enjoy. Therefore, I protest any human effort to remove
from radio or television any program designed to show faith in God or
a Supreme Being, or to remove Christmas songs and carols from the
public school system.
