From Queer Day:

CBS has again refused to air United Church of Christ’s gay-inclusive television commercial saying it amounts to “advocacy” and therefore cannot be aired because it runs counter to a network policy against advocacy ads. UCC president Ron Buford said, “We told them that the United Church of Christ commercial was not advocating anything; rather, we are letting people know that no matter who they are, or where they are on life’s journey, they are welcome,” Buford said. “The executives said that it would have to become commonplace across the United States for churches to welcome gays and lesbians,” Buford said.
