This latest survey by the Anti Defamation League show that most Americans believe that their religious/moral values are under attack by the Entertainment world. It also shows that Abe Foxman head of the ADL is too out of touch with America and the entire Jewish Community to be leading the organization.
American Attitudes on Religion, Moral Values and Hollywood, a national poll of 1,000 American adults conducted in October 2008 by The Marttila Communications Group, found that 61% of the American people continue to believe that religious values in this country are “under attack.” The poll also found that 59% of Americans agree that “the people who run the TV networks and the major movie studios do not share the religious and moral values of most Americans.
I will admit I have a bit of a problem with the ADL and its leader Abe Foxman. They always waste their effort and resources where it doesn’t belong mostly because Abe wants to be the the leader of the Liberal World. For example the ADL has issued the following press releases that have nothing to do with the organizations mission:
- ADL Welcomes Bipartisan Agreement On Immigration Reform
- Senator Kennedy Issues Call For Meaningful Immigration Reform
- ADL Disappointed With Supreme Court Ruling On Partial Birth Abortion Act
- L.A. Area Organizations Issue Declaration For Human Rights For Immigrants
- ADL Gets Firsthand Look At U.S. Border Security And Immigration Issues on Mission to Phoenix, AZ
- ADL Calls Anti-Asian Segment On New York’s WFNY Radio “Offensive And Repugnant”
- Imus’ Suspension For Racist Remarks ‘A Long Time In Coming’
With this poll Abe Foxman continues his campaign to be the grand poobah of the liberal movement. Not for the poll itself but for his comments:
“It is troubling that so many Americans feel as if the output of Hollywood is part of an organized campaign to undermine religious values in this country and believe that censorship is acceptable,” said Mr. Foxman. “It shows that in this age of pervasive media and the widening availability of the Internet, many Americans still maintain a very parochial view toward the information age, and even believe in censorship to ‘protect morality.’ If anything, it points to the need for a greater awareness of the fundamental role that the First Amendment has played in helping religious freedom in America to be sustained, and indeed, to flourish.”
Who Knows Abe, Maybe you are wrong. To me It shows that in this age of pervasive media and the widening availability of the Internet, many Americans still wants Hollywood to provide some entertainment that matches their moral and religious attitudes.
