Also, I do not know when the bill is coming up on the House floor. Therefore, I cannot say at this time how I would vote on such an amendment. But I will certainly keep your views in mind when the bill is considered. Your writing is appreciated. MORALITY LOOMS IN DALLAS - Dallas Reunion Arena was the site of a "National Affairs Briefing" for an estimated 20,000 pastors and individuals from across the country. The August 21-22 event was sponsored by the Religious Roundtable - Jai.os Robison's new political organization. Their purpose is to motivate "Christians" to elect candidates who are opposed to the Equal Rights Amendment, reproductive freedom, child care, lesbian/gay rights, the Department of Health and Welfare, separation of church and state (if the church is theirs), and many of the other freedoms we enjoy. The strength of this right-wing group (usurping the name of Christianity for their own purposes) was evident in the recent Republican Convention. Members of the Moral Majority, Jerry Falwell's group, were present in practically every delegation and conferred privately with Governor Reagan. Ronald Reagan, Phyllis Schlafly, Governor William Clements and John Connally were included in the list of prominent speakers. Members of the Dallas Gay Political Caucus and the National Organization for Women, in coalition with other groups, were planning positive efforts to counter these extremists, politically and religiously. This group adopted the name of the Thinking Majority. It meets every Saturday at 10:00 a.m. at the NOW offices in Dallas, -from the DGPC Newsletter FCC MED TO UPHOLD Dallas - The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has been requested by the National Gay Task Force to oppose a complaint by the James Robison Evangelistic Association against WFAA-TV of Dallas. The Association lodged the complaint against the television station following an FCC ruling that upheld the right of the station to exercise "editorial discretion" in its decision to cancel a religious series in which evangelist James Robison appeared. Robison delivered a sermon on morality in which he made anti-gay remarks and condemnations. The program, aired February 25, 1979, stirred controversy and a Dallas Gay Political Caucus complaint of personal attack prompted WFAA-TV to cancel the series. The reason for the cancellation, according to the station's explanation, was that a program of a religious nature should not concern itself with controversial issues of public importance, that news and public affairs broadcasting provided sufficient coverage of those issues as well as opportunity for equal time response.
