Fox Rejects John 3:16 Super Bowl Ad, But GoDaddy Ads Are Just Fine

Since the 1970s it has been a common site to see a fan sitting directly behind the goal posts holding up a John 3:16 sign during field goal attempts. I remember as a kid seeing a man with a rainbow colored wig holding up one of these signs.

Time Tebow John 3:16

Tim Tebow, the former University of Florida Heisman Trophy winning quarterback and current Denver Broncos quarterback, routinely had a bible verse written on his eye black patches. Often times this Bible verse was John 3:16.

So obviously  a Super Bowl commercial that briefly mentions John 3:16 wouldn’t receive a second thought when being reviewed by Fox for inappropriate content. In a common sense world that would be true, but this week Fox threw common sense out the window and decided that an extremely benign John 3:16 ad created for The Fixed Point Foundation was just to controversial and offensive for the Super Bowl.

Excuse me?! Did someone on the review board fall asleep when the GoDaddy.com commercials were previewed?

When I first heard about the John 3:16 ad being rejected I was mad. When I actually saw the ad, I was outraged.

Watch the ad below and let me know what you think.

  1. How could FOX be narrow about this… it's a nothing but the reference. Why on earth would they think this too controversial to air, isn't it a paid ad????? If it is, what happened…..??????????????????????????????

  2. Why was that rejected? That was an awesome commercial. It was cute. Even if you're not a "bible-toting-Jesus Christ-worshipper like myself"
    Theres obviously men in charge that have "another agenda" and it involves the plan of that fallen angel who couldnt behave in heaven.

  3. Certainly not offensive, unlike GoDaddy.com!! Further, it upsets me that when my children and I watch the Super Bowl, we are inundated with material glorifying sex, alcohol and immorality of other sorts… even the cameramen covering the game cannot seem to keep the lens covering the game, but the cheerleaders' barely covered breasts and rears.  It's a constant barrage of offensive material!

  4. I agree it is terrible that such an advert should be banned? God help us.

    All the more reason why the net should be used to promote the Gospel whilst we can
