He says that has a direct affect on Christian radio and television. "There would be no question in my mind that federal prosecutors would be asked to prosecute those that make statements over the airwaves that may result in someone feeling harassed, intimidated or insulted."Parshall says the candidates have two different views on the fairness doctrine."Senator Barak Obama has indicated that he wants to mandate a creation of diverse viewpoints. In other words, he doesn't necessarily like the way the viewpoints are situated right now in the broadcast media. He wants to create different opinions by federal mandates. John McCain has come out and said he very much opposes fairness doctrine and anything that would mandate that kind of required diversity."He says Republicans oppose hate crimes legislation, while the democrats have gone on the record supporting such measures.
While there are many other issues separating the candidates, says Parshall, "On these very essential ones affecting the Christian church and our freedom not only to broadcast, but to proclaim the whole truth of the whole Gospel to the whole culture, I think there's a very distinct difference between the two parties and the two candidates."
