John 3:16 rejected by Fox for Super Bowl

From The Borg Conspiracy

Pretty self explanatory IMO. Both the ad and Fox's more than transparent and secular reason for rejecting it.

John 3:16 Super Bowl Ad Rejected
The ad, which was produced by the Fixed Point Foundation, showcases a group of guys who wouldn't be out of place in a beer commercial gathered around a big screen yelling at the TV during a football game. After a close-up of John 3:16 is flashed onscreen, they wonder what the verse means and use a smart phone to look it up. That's it. Gibson explains that Fox likely blocked the ad to avoid "the wrong kind of controversy," but hedges by noting "it's hard to see how a commercial whose only religious reference is a brief shot of a player's eye black and 'John 3:16' could offend an audience of sports fans."

So apparently, Fox news is concerned that super Bowl viewers might be inspired to actually look up John 3:16
Which in my mind, brings up the question pf Mark 8:38

Maybe someone at Fox should look that one up too.
