Madalyn Murray O'Hair Trying to Get References to God Removed from Touched By An Angel and Other TV or Radio Shows-Fiction!

 

 

 

bulletSummary of Erumor
Email warnings say that famed Atheist Madalyn Murray O'Hair has petitioned the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to take references to God out of the Touched By An Angel TV show.  A petition number is mentioned, RM-2493, and people are encouraged to call or write the FCC to protest the request.  Some versions also say that O'Hair has petitioned the FCC to take all Christian broadcasting off the air and that radio psychologist Dr. James Dobson is is appealing for your help to stop her.

A later version says that the reason CBS cancelled Touched By an Angel was because of references to God on the show. 
bulletThe Truth:  
This is a false eRumor and an interesting twist is that Madalyn Murray O'Hair has been out of the picture since she disappeared in August, 1995.  In January, 2001, authorities in Texas found her remains in a shallow grave and the question then became what would happen to the Madalyn Murray O'Hair eRumors?  We got our answer less than a month later when we started receiving versions of the rumors that began with, "THOUGH SHE'S DEAD AND HAS JUST BEEN LOCATED AFTER 5 YEARS,
THIS LADY CONTINUES TO HAUNT US FROM HER SHALLOW GRAVE. - GET THIS:"  So, it looks like the Madalyn Murray O'Hair eRumors will survive for a while.

In the Fall of 2002, a new version appeared as an appeal from radio psychologist Dr. James Dobson for your help in fighting O'Hair and that in addition to the Touched By An Angel threat, she was also trying to take all Christian broadcasting off the air including Catholic Mass.  That was a combined version of the two major eRumors about O'Hair and is a hoax.  Dr.Dobson has made no such appeal. 

The end of Touched By An Angel was not a mystery and had nothing to do with the show's religious content.  It was a very successful program that ran for 9 seasons and simply ran its course.

The Touched By An Angel is a variation of another Madalyn Murray O'Hair rumor that is more than 20 years old.  CLICK HERE for that story.  The petition number, "RM-2493", is from a false rumor that Madalyn Murray O'Hair was appealing to the Federal Communications Commission to take all religious broadcasting off the air.  

Additionally, TruthOrFiction.com has friendship with the folks at Touched By An Angel and they assure us there is no truth to the rumor.


Version #1

CBS will be forced to discontinue "Touched by an Angel" for using the word God in every program.  Madeline Murray O'Hare,an atheist, successfully managed to eliminate the use of Bible reading from public schools a few years ago.  And now her organization has been granted a Federal Hearing on the same subject by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in Washington DC.  Their petition, Number 2493, would ultimately pave the way to stop the reading of the gospel of our Lord and Savior, on the airwaves of America.
They took this petition 287,000 signatures to back their stand!  If this attempt is successful,all Sunday worship services being broadcasted on the radio, or by television will be stopped.  This group is also campaigning to remove all Christmas programs, and Christmas carols from public schools!!  You as Christians can help!  We are praying for at least 1 million signatures.  This would defeat their effort and show that their are many Christians alive, well and concerned about our country.  As Christians we must unite on this.  Please don't take this lightly.  We ignored this lady once and lost prayer in our school and in offices across the nation.  Please stand up for your religious freedom and let your voice be heard.  Together we can make a difference in our country while an opportunity for the lost to know the Lord.  Now, please sign your name (1st or last which ever you choose) at the bottom by highlighting this whole letter with your mouse and clicking FORWARD.  Don't delete anything, just go to the next number and type your name.  Please do not sign jointingly,such as Mr.  & Mrs....  Each person should sign his/her own name.  Please e-mail this to everyone you know, and help us defeat this organization and keep the right of our freedom of religion.
