Faith & Freedom Coalition Decries Oscar Snub of Christian Song as “Needlessly Offensive to Moviegoers of Faith”

Reed Calls Rescinding of Oscar Nomination for “Alone Yet Not Alone”an act of anti-Christian Bias, urges members to protest to the Academy of Motion Pictures

The Faith & Freedom Coalition announced today that it was contacting its more than 700,000 members and supporters to urge them to call and write the Academy of Motion Pictures of Arts and Sciences and register their strong protest of the Academy’s controversial decision to rescind an Oscar nomination for Best Song to ‘Alone Yet Not Alone,’ a song from the faith-based film of the same name.  The song is sung by Joni Eareckson Tada, a quadriplegic who is a best-selling Christian author and popular radio host. FFC will contact its members via email, text message, and phone banks, urging them to contact the Academy’s headquarters in Beverly Hills, California, to protest the snub of the uplifting song as an act of anti-Christian bias and selective enforcement of rules governing contact with Academy Award voters. “The decision by the Academy of Motion Pictures of Arts and Sciences to withdraw the richly-deserved Best Song nomination of ‘Alone Yet Not Alone,’ which contains a powerful message of faith, is blatantly discriminatory and just the latest example of Hollywood’s apparent hostility to expressions of faith in God,” said Ralph Reed, chairman of Faith & Freedom Coalition.  “The selective and harsh enforcement regarding contact with Academy Award voters is unfair, wrong, and smacks of anti-Christian bias.  We urge the Academy to reinstate the nomination or risk needlessly offending tens of millions of Americans and moviegoers of faith.”
