Liberals Using Religion to Push Their Agenda on Americans
By: Jim Kouri, CPP
Former Vice President Al Gore scours the countryside looking for support for a possible presidential run and attempts to emulate bible-thumping preachers while preaching a message of the need for “big government” to save the planet. Meanwhile, Gore hobnobs with the Hollywood elite many of whom wouldn’t know a Bible from a Cecil B. DeMille script for the movie “Samson and Delilah.”
Senator Hillary Clinton, who’s husband used a Bible as a prop during his impeachment days, hires a consultant in order to find a way to “get over on evangelicals” without changing her positions on killing unborn children and changing the definition of marriage.
Democrat Party strategists hold brainstorming meetings in order to find the means to hoodwink Christian voters without forsaking their socialist beliefs and plans.
On Wednesday, January 17, The Church Report revealed that a group of Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Sikh leaders have a new â€œfaith agendaâ€ that they will hold the 110th Congress to. This new agenda will shift the emphasis away from opposing abortion and â€œsame-sex marriageâ€ to issues liberal denominations and interfaith groups are associated with, according to the Church Report’s Jennifer Morehouse.
The lobby Faith in Public Life and other interfaith groups are advocating increasing the minimum wage, economic and social justice in regard to immigration reform, ending the war in Iraq, and â€œcreation care,â€ a euphemism for child care.
Paul Sherry, national coordinator of the â€œLet Justice Roll Living Wage Campaign,â€ said most Americans are “morally outraged” by low pay. The organization lobbied successfully for minimum wage increases in several states, according to Morehouse’s report.
Church Report then quotes the president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, Sam Rodriguez said, â€œThere is a strong faith ethos in the Hispanic community of the issues of immigration, poverty and economic and social justice.â€ He advocates for secure borders and stopping illegal immigration, but he supports amnesty and a guest worker program.
â€œGod specifically made humans responsible [for creation] as His image, and as His representatives on earth,â€ Paul de Vries, a board member with the National Association of Evangelicals and president of New York Divinity School said. â€œHow we treat His creation He takes personally,â€ de Vries continued. â€œWeâ€™re people lovers, but we can be tree lovers at the same time. Weâ€™re people huggers and tree huggers.â€
Rick Ufford Chase, who leads the organization Christian Peace Witness for Iraq, said his group intends to remind Congress that it has a â€œclear moral imperative to end the warâ€ and bring US military forces home, according to Morehouse. But Chase’s organization has no plan on how to protect millions of Americans from terrorist attacks.
Faith in Public Life said Congress should heed the power of religious voters who â€œrejected a go-it-alone strategy in Iraq and politicians that put power ahead of policies that promote the common good.â€
