      Stop SUBSIDIZING televangelists
      ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

      Hello Secular Coalition Activist,

      We need your help collecting data about televangelism!

      Maybe you've already seen the story on our website -
      http://secular.org/fcc.html . In May, the Secular Coalition submitted
      a formal complaint to the FCC about the free ride televangelists are
      receiving from satellite television companies like DirectTV. (Of
      course, we all know nothing is really free; these religious programs
      are supported by unsuspecting satellite TV customers!)

      While we await the FCC's response to our complaint, we could use your
      help gathering information about these shows. Are they as educational
      as DirectTV claims? The ones we watched were hardly that.

      But don't take our word for it. We need you to watch some TV preaching
      for us -- any televangelist show at all -- and report your own
      findings. Better yet, invite your friends over for the evening and
      have a PreacherWatch party! We make it easy for you to tell us what
      you saw -- just enter the data on our Web form at
      http://secular.org/preacher.html . (Please take a look first at our
      guidelines and questions.)

      Thanks for your help returning educational channel access to real
      educational programmers! We can't wait to see your comments.

      Best wishes,
      The Secular Coalition for America
