Misc. Bias Issues:

"If a State refused to let religious groups use facilities open to others, then it would demonstrate not neutrality but hostility toward religion." (Justice Sandra Day O'Connor)

"In America most orthodox Christians become defensive or testy when they are asked even to break into a sweat. Most of our efforts up until now have been more symbolic than anything else. We are great at holding conventions, gathering for strategy meetings and seminars, holding congresses on evangelism. But where are the people to run our own antidefamation league?" (p. 136. Book Burning. Ibid.)

"It is not possible in this culture today to hold up to public pillory and ridicule any group – whether blacks, American Indians, women, homosexuals, Poles, or any of a number of other groups that have been discriminated against in the past. However, the one group you can hold up to public mockery and pillory without fear of reprisal is evangelical Christians." (Michael Novak, columnist) p. 223 – Kennedy

"With each passing year, people of faith grow increasingly distressed by the hostility of public institutions toward religious expression. We have witnessed the steady erosion of the time-honored rights of religious Americans – both as individuals and as communities – to practice what they believe in the public square." (p. 1. Contract with the American Family. Ralph Reed. 1995.)

"Examples of hostility toward religious values and those who hold them abound…This antireligious bigotry is not confined to the classroom." (p. 2. Contract with the American Family. Ibid.)

"We live in an age where…Christian bashing is a popular indoor sport." (Patrick Buchanan. p. 205. Wildmon. Ibid.)

"In the 20th century, evangelical Christians in America have naively accepted the role assigned to us by an anti-religious , anti-Christian consensus in our society. We have been relegated to a cultural backwater, where we are meant to paddle around content in the knowledge that we are merely allowed to exist. (Foreward. Franky Schaeffer. A Time for Anger. 1981.)

"There can be nothing more abominable than religion." (Lenin)

"There is a bigotry rampant in America, against evangelicals. It is the last respectable bigotry." (Michael Novak)

"Religion, especially public manifestations of Christianity, is being systematically separated from America society." (p. 9. Whitehead. Ibid.)

"Modern culture is prejudiced against the Judeo-Christian ethic." (p. 18. Whitehead. Ibid.)

"If the polls are right, our Judeo-Christian heritage is no longer the foundation of our values. We have become a post-Christian society." (Chuck Colson)

"Indeed, Christians are the only remaining people who may be publicly defamed with impunity." (p. 72. Whitehead. Ibid.)

"The humanistic consensus is interested in eliminating Christianity , because individual Christians have an absolute standard by which to judge the system." (p. 40. The Second American Revolution. John W. Whitehead. 1982.)

"Religious insults are considered acceptable even by those who decry slurs about race, ethnicity, and gender. Religious people seem to deserve such treatment." (p. 159. Warning: Nonsense is Destroying America. Vincent Ryan Ruggiero. 1994.)

Persecution against Christians in America – For those who say it can't happen here – it is already happening here in America. Christians are being increasingly persecuted for their beliefs and bold stand for Jesus Christ." (Paul McGuire. Who Will Rule the Future? p. 102)

"Religious cleansing is a term I use to describe the current hostility and bigotry toward religion and people of faith that are leading to covert and overt attempts to remove any religious influence from the public arena." (Keith Fournier. ACLJ.) (p. 63)

"As you no doubt know, from what you read in the paper, see on television and from your personal experience, there is a struggle underway in America between people of faith and those who deny the role that Christian faith played in the birth of our nation.
What's more, these same anti-Christian forces – led by the radical left ACLU – are trying to sanitize our schools, colleges, government bodies, courts and other national institutions of ANY reference to God…efforts that have made anti-Christian bigotry the only acceptable form of prejudice in America today. Some of their victories that you already know include:

Banning prayer – and private prayer groups – from our schools.
Prohibiting the Ten Commandments from being posted in public places.
Outlawing prayers from sporting events.
And then there are some battles now being waged that you may not be aware of including:

Eliminating the rank of Military Chaplain from our armed services;
Removing "In God We Trust" from our currency;
Prohibiting the use of religious symbols to mark the graves of our fallen countrymen who rest in our national cemeteries; and,
Eliminating Christmas as a national holiday.
These are just a few examples of how Christianity – and Christians – are under attack in America today." (Robert Conover, Co-Founder of the Christian Defense Fund . Alexandria, VA. April 1998.)

"We may very well wake up in the not-too-distant future in a culture that is not only unreceptive but openly hostile to the church and the gospel of Jesus Christ, a culture in which those who proclaim the gospel will be labeled as bigots and fanatics, a culture in which persecution of Christians will be not only allowed but applauded." (Josh McDowell. The New Tolerance. p. 9)

"The tragic fact is that Christian have become the special targets of religious persecution in the world today." (Don Argue. Former president of the National Association of Evangelicals.)

"Religious people, in the name of the Constitution, are increasingly being shoved to the back of the social bus." (Pat Swindall. A House Divided. p. 151)

"Increasingly, Christianity is the object of scorn and ridicule." ((David Mains. The Rise of the Religion of Antichristism. p. 55)

"The results of this increasing hostility to religious expression in the public marketplace has been carefully traced by Steven A. Samson in a 1984 doctoral dissertation written for the University of Oregon, with particular reference to the secularists' usage of the state against traditional Christianity." (D. F. Kelley. The Christian and American Law. p. 182)

"The overarching philosophy that fuels the Leftist agenda is a ferocious determination to extirpate all religious influence in American public life." (Lapin. Ibid. p. 60)

"We really have no choice but to pray and encourage a return to an America steeped in Judeo-Christian values. It is either that or taking our chances in a society with no values at all." (Lapin. Ibid. p. 359)

"I condemn Christianity; I bring against the Christian Church the most terrible of all the accusations that an accuser has ever had in his mouth. It is, to me, the greatest of all imaginable corruptions; it seeks to work the ultimate corruption, the worse possible corruption. The Christian Church has left nothing untouched by its depravity; it has turned every value into worthlessness, and every truth into a lie, and every integrity into baseness of soul." (Friederich Nietzsche. The AntiChrist. Translated by H. L. Mencken. The Noontide Press. 1980. Torrance, CA. p. 180.)

"Historically speaking, the Christian religion is nothing but a Jewish sect…After the destruction of Judaism, the extinction of Christian slave morals must follow logically…Ah, the God of the deserts, that crazed, stupid, vengeful Asiatic despot with his powers to make laws!" (Adolph Hitler. The Ten Commandments: Ten Short Novels of Hitler's War Against the Moral Code. Armin Robinson, editor. Simon and Schuster. New York: NY. 1943.)

"If the otherwise admirably civilized pagans of Greece and their Roman successors had had the wit to laugh Judaism into desuetude, the world would have been spared the 2000-year sickness of Christendom." (Charles Lam Markmann, The Noblest Cry (a pro-ACLU book) St. Martin's Press. New York: NY. 1965.)

"Over-population is the 'cause of drive-by shootings' and other social ills, but the root of the problem is Christianity, which posits that people are more important than sea otters and elephants." (Ted Turner. National Review. June 8, 1992. p. 26.)

"The label 'Christian nation' has become fighting words." (The Washington Times. Nov. 23, 1992.)

"We now live in a 'post-Christian' America. The Judeo-Christian ethic no longer guides our social institutions. Christian ideals and values no longer dominate social thought and action. The Bible has ceased to be a common base of moral authority for judging whether something is right or wrong, good or bad, acceptable or unacceptable." (Alan Crippen. Reclaiming Our Culture. p. 39)

"Religious ideas are now second-class citizens." (Land & Moore. Citizen Christian. p. 42)
