Ok, So Advocating HomoCide is a Joke, but a Bare Nip Gets You 500K Fine

I swear to Swaggart's Jeebus, this world is upside down.

Good ol' boy, hooker lovin', JD guzzlin', Reverend Jimmy "All I want to do is jack off awhile and look at your tits" Swaggart advocates that homo's need a good killin'. And it's a joke. Swaggart's ministry is shown on public airwaves throughout the U.S. But I guess since he apologized for his off-the-cuff nationally broadcast homo killin' remark, he's good to go with the Bush Administration, and the collection plate won't be empty this weekend:

"It's a humorous statement that doesn't mean anything. You can't lie to God — it's ridiculous," Swaggart told The Associated Press. "If it's an insult, I certainly didn't think it was, but if they are offended, then I certainly offer an apology."
Meanwhile, Janet Jackson has a "wardrobe malfunction" during the Super Bowl, which CBS happened to broadcast, and CBS (which had absolutely nothing to do with Janet's 10 nanosecond exposed nip) gets fined a cool $500,000 by that bastion of public airwave protection, Michael "I'm Not Colin" Powell.

May I humbly suggest that you contact FCC Commissioner Powell and insist that, at a minimum, any TV station that broadcast Swaggart's homophobic remarks be substantially fined for promoting discrimination and advocating violence against minorities. Perhaps a broadcast license renewal challenge is also in order for any TV station that carried the remarks. Matthew Sheppard thanks you.
