Religious freedom is under attack in America, proclaims upcoming television special

According to Truth In Action Ministries (formerly Coral Ridge Ministries) and Alliance Defending Freedom (formerly Alliance Defense Fund), "religion is being treated like anthrax" and there has been an "astonishing legal onslaught against religious freedom in America."

The two Christian right groups have teamed together to broadcast a "riveting television special" about how Christians' rights are "under attack" that will air on July 22.  In the meantime, the groups are selling DVDs of "Attack on Freedom" with the admonition,

In this national election year, we must broadcast the Truth — it is ESSENTIAL. We must also mobilize Americans to vote their biblical values, and preserve freedom, before all is lost to the onslaught of anti-God, anti-family, anti-truth ideology. Let's hold our elected leaders accountable. Please give as generously as you can, today to help rally believers and share the Gospel.

    Based on the blurb from the Christians they are concerned about "anti-truth ideology" and promoting "the Gospel." Don't they realize the Gospels are full of anti-truth. One great example is John 14:12-14 which says that Jesus said those who believe in him will be able to not only do the things the Bible says he did, but they will be able to do greater works than those. It also says that Jesus said those who believe in him will be able to get anything they ask for in prayer. This is one of the biggest "anti-truths" in history!

    commentator and former alter-boy George Carlin sums it up, “Think about it.
    Religion has actually convinced people that there’s an invisible man living in
    the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible
    man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do
    any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and
    burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and
    burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever ’til the end of time! But He
    loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He’s
    all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can’t handle
    money! Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they
    always need a little more."

      There are a lot of people who buy into this. This has become the mantra of the religious right.

        So I've noticed. That doesn't mean they aren't insane though.

    When you correct a spoiled child, they generally throw a tantrum. The likelihood of a tantrum and its severity are directly related to how long they've previously been able to get away with the behavior. Christians are no different, and it's amplified by the fact that the religion celebrates persecution, and in certain sects deifies (i.e. – cult of saints) martyrs.

    Their leaders naturally are going to use the corrections they're receiving from society and the courts to galvanize their flocks, and get those donation$ rolling in.
