In case you haven’t already seen it, a commercial for Lookup316.com was rejected for use during the Super Bowl by Fox Sports, because it was deemed to contain “religious doctrine”. While this might initially seem disappointing, I really don’t think it is! It’s generated so much buzz, it’s probably getting more views (and more of the intended response of looking up the website and/or the Bible verse) than it would have if aired during the big game.

And, of course, it’s going viral on YouTube. Not bad publicity for a $50,000 production, and probably a lot better than they would have gotten for their $3,000,000 if Fox had given it the okay!
Here’s the controversial video, including music by Keith & Kristyn Getty:
