A National Religious Broadcasters official says videos like the anti-Islam film that's blamed for riots in the Middle East shouldn't be banned from the Internet unless they openly call for violence.

NRB Senior Vice President Craig Parshall says threats of violence from those who are offended shouldn't squelch views that are "downright despicable and yet protected in our country under the First Amendment."

The National Religious Broadcasters have been urging Internet gatekeepers like Apple, Google and Facebook to be open to biblical views on marriage and homosexuality that some find offensive.
