30 years ago today - Apr 6, 1991

A Church News statement that "although the Church has issued earlier statements [in 1978 and 1979] advising [LDS] members not to write the FCC regarding the petition [to allegedly stop religious broadcasting], form letters to the FCC regarding the matter continue to circulate among members, even in Church meetings." The Church News states that the FCC has received 21 million pieces of mail since 1977 about a problem that "doesn't even exist." The inability of LDS headquarters for thirteen years to stop Mormons from writing such letters indicates that many American Mormons give greater heed to propaganda by fundamentalist Christians and political ultra-conservatives.
