NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - The CBS and NBC television networks have banned an ad by the United Church of Christ promoting acceptance, including the acceptance of people regardless of sexual orientation, because the networks believe the ad is too controversial, according to the church.

According to a United Church of Christ statement, the ad says that -- like Jesus -- the church seeks to welcome all people, regardless of ability, age, race, economic circumstance or sexual orientation.

"Because this commercial touches on the exclusion of gay couples...and the fact that the executive branch has recently proposed a Constitutional amendment to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman, this spot is unacceptable for broadcast," the church's press release read, quoting CBS.

Because, baby, when you get religion mixed with government, you get government mixed in your religion. So, how DO you like that peanut butter in your chocolate?
