Beyond Absurd, its a flagrant smear campaign. Egads! I suggest you eliminate your contact with AFA.
so very much of what you send is just extremist propaganda - and you are
so deeply involved in a cult that you don't even recall what conventional Christianity is based upon.
I am saying that with much respect, and with evidence which is undeniable -- your emails versus a real Bible before Cyrus Scofield's apostasy Zionized it. Hey, for two-years I've examined that genocidal hoax.
this IS very interesting, even to me. There ARE tremendous restrictions
on what the SEC [and other regulators] will permit in an ad.
It would be obnoxious for several companies to claim to be
'Christian' when in fact their business was run the same as everyone else.
Don't you agree it would be BLASPHEMOUS to claim that
God wanted you to pick Acme investments? Don't you think that is the POINT here?
Buying investments (or a car or even cosmetics) is always about the relationship
between the salesperson and the consumer. Even what the seller tells a customer
is constrained by regulators. THIS is a fascinating story, but I'll wager you its
all about 'Compliance' regulations and not discrimination against Jesus or Moses or Mohamed

FYI: It is blatantly illegal to promise or predict 'double your bottom line'!
Oct. 4, 2007, .../.... I went to the Morningstar site and I had a devil of a time finding an advertisement. And here’s where you can find the advert for Faith Financial. I went to the Faith Financial Web site and to tell you the truth it looks to me like some kind of Christian multilevel marketing pyramid scheme. Judge for yourself by going here.

Subject: Christian Advertising Rejected!
Morningstar, One of the Largest Financial Information Companies, Rejects Ad that References "Christian"
Anti-Christian bias has become the norm in Hollywood and the media in recent years, and now there is evidence of this bigotry growing in the financial services industry, as well. We have learned that our friends at Faith Financial Planners were denied a paid advertisement on the website of Morningstar unless they removed the "Christian" content from their advertisement. Morningstar -- one of the largest providers of financial information on mutual funds, stocks, and portfolios for individual investors and institutions in the world -- told Faith Financial that the company had to "change the message completely and eliminate the Christian undertones." This is a clear example of bigotry just because Faith Financial represents a Christian message about values and investing. Faith Financial is a company that, through one of its subsidiaries, provides information for Christians to use in reflecting their values in their investments. The information alerts values-based investors to those companies that are involved in pornography, abortion, the homosexual agenda, etc. Faith Financial's website is faithfinancialplanners.com. Faith Financial is based in the Nashville, Tennessee area.
In an unprecedented move, after a contract had been signed by both parties, an ad sales agent for Morningstar informed Faith Financial that Morningstar had reversed its decision to accept the ad and decided that Faith Financial must censor the "Christian undertones" in order for the ad to be acceptable. American Family Association is asking you to let the leadership at Morningstar know that this kind of Christian bigotry is unacceptable.
You can send a message to Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Joe Mansueto.
