Super Bowl ad with John 3:16 rejected by Fox Sports , local minister is outraged !

Report by the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel :

The 30-second commercial shows football fans in a living room cheering wildly for a quarterback sack. Cut to a close-up of a player’s face. In the black smudge under his eyes it says, “John 3:16.”

The viewer is then directed to the website http://www.lookup316.com.

That’s it. Someone unfamiliar with the Christian Bible might not even get the reference.

The John 3:16 commercial was produced by Fixed Point, a Birmingham, Ala., religious advocacy group, which wanted it aired on Fox Sports during the Super Bowl this Sunday. The Super Bowl broadcast begins at 6:30 p.m. on Fox.

Fox turned down the ad because it contained “religious doctrine,” which is against their policy, said a Fox spokesman.

Fixed Point founder Larry Taunton is taking the rejection in stride, being mobbed by reporters since he put out a press release about what happened. John 3:16 was the lead religion item on HuffingtonPost.com on Monday.

For Christians, John 3:16 contains the essence of their faith: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

The verse also has been a part of broadcast sports since the mid-1970s. That was when rainbow-wigged Rollen Stewart became a minor celebrity for holding up a card with “John 3:16” on it in the end zone at football games and other major sporting events.

In recent years, others in the stands have held up the John 3:16 sign, but its most famous adherent is Tim Tebow, the University of Florida’s former star quarterback, who wrote Bible verses in his eye black.

The idea came to Fixed Point founder Larry Taunton during last year’s Super Bowl, when he asked himself, “If I had 30 seconds, what would I say to 106 million people?”

The day after last year’s Super Bowl, Taunton called Fox Sports.

“They said they probably wouldn’t air something like that, but they were intrigued and were willing to look at our story boards,” Taunton said.

Two months after receiving the story boards, Fox rejected the ad.

Taunton spent Monday and Tuesday being interviewed by reporters, mostly from religious publications.

“If we can achieve the same cultural dialogue this way, so be it,” Taunton said.

Fixed Point then bought two local TV spots during the Super Bowl in Birmingham and a few other cities. They will not be aired in the South Florida market.

When Boca Raton minister Mark Boykin heard about the rejected ad, he was offended.

“They call themselves ‘fair and balanced.’ They say, ‘We are a Christian nation.’ That’s their mantra,” said Boykin, who heads the Church of All Nations in Boca Raton. “If you’re going to have that moniker, you’d better stand behind it.”

Instead of turning the other cheek, Boykin went on offense.

He launched a letter-writing campaign on Tuesday after he heard that Fox had refused to air the John 3:16 commercial. The same Fox network that turned down the John 3:16 commercial allowed celebrities to use the F-word and the S-word — unbleeped — at the 2002 and 2003 broadcasts of the Billboard Music Awards show, which was watched by more than a million young people, Boykin said.

“I don’t see how we can give them a free pass on this,” Boykin said. “They’re counting on Christians being reticent and docile, but this one we are not going to let go.”

Since advertisers compete to produce Super Bowl ads that get people talking, Taunton said it is possible that the John 3:16 ad just wasn’t racy enough.

“Maybe if we had a girl in a bikini holding up a John 3:16 sign in one hand and a beer in the other, they would like it,” he said, laughing.
