National Alliance Against Christian Discrimination
"Protecting and Promoting the Christian Faith and Our Religious Heritage."


Don Feder

Christians are the only group Hollywood can offend with impunity, the only creed it actually goes out of its way to insult…The tenets of Christianity are regularly held up to ridicule." (A Jewish Conservative Looks at Pagan America.)

"We may be unable to maintain even a semblance of order in our urban schools, which increasingly resemble happy hour in Beirut. But, hallelujah, we sure know how to protect kids from God." (pp. 51-52. Feder. Ibid.)

"No other group (traditional Christians) is so consistently maligned on prime-time television. These defamatory portrayals betray a deep-seated hostility. (p. 134. Feder. Ibid.)

"Christians are the only group Hollywood can offend with impunity, the only creed it actually goes out of its way to insult…The tenets of Christianity are held up to ridicule." (Feder. Ibid.)

Don Feder (More)

"Bill Clinton says the middle-class folks in Topeka who contribute to The 700 Club or Focus on the Family are radicals whose beliefs pose a mortal danger to this nation!" (p. 12. Who's Afraid of the Religious Right? 1996.)

"It's said the religious right wants to force its faith on the public. But whose faith are we talking about?…Everyone who operates in the political arena wants to see their morals reflected in our laws and governmental institutions – including the National Organization of Women, the National Abortion Rights Action League, and the American Civil Liberties Union, whether or not they are willing to admit it." (p. 12. Feder. Ibid.)

"(Concerning) First Amendment fetishism – A federal subsidy for a photo of a crucifix suspended in a jar of urine is fine, but religious figures on stamps are offensive." (p. 25. Feder. Ibid.)

By and large, reporters and editors are devoutly secular and deeply distrustful of those who act on faith."" (p. 33. Feder. Ibid.)

"To suggest that conservatives have a monopoly on hate is an ideological mugging of reality." (p. 135. Feder. Ibid.)

Charles Finney

"The Church must take right ground in regard to politics…Politics are a part of a religion in such a country as this, and Christians must do their duty to the country as part of their duty to God…(God) will bless or curse this nation, according to the course (Christians) take (in politics)." (Early American evangelist. Revival Lectures. Lecture XV.)

Nathan A. Forrester

"The perception now is that the Constitution requires that we purge all religion from the public square." (Beckett Fund for Religious Liberty. Quoted in The Washington Times. Dec. 24, 1994.)

Keith Fournier

"The growing wave of intolerance against people of faith must be stopped. It's a threat to everyone – even those who do not believe. It strikes at the heart of the nature of liberty in a constitutional democracy." (Executive Director of the American Center for Law and Justice. And Nothing But the Truth. p. 223.)

"Religious cleansing is a term I use to describe the current hostility and bigotry toward religion and people of faith that are leading to convert and overt attempts to remove any religious influence from the public arena."(ACLJ Counsel. p. 62. Taken from: The New Absolutes by William Watkins.)

Benjamin Franklin

"If men are so wicked with religion, what would they be if without it?" (Franklin confronting religious critic Thomas Paine.)

Norman Geisler

"The Founders wanted to guarantee freedom of religion, not freedom from religion." (p. 80. Legislating Morality. Co-author Frank Turek. 1998.)

"In 1963 with Abington v. Schempp, The Court said that reading portions of the New Testament could be 'psychologically harmful' to the children." (p. 88. Geisler. Ibid.)

"Since the Court took God our of our schools, we've gotten exactly what we should expect: godless schools." (p. 93. Geisler. Ibid.)

Nancy Gibbs

"For God to be kept out of the classroom or out of America's public debate by nervous school administrators or overcautious politicians serves no one's interests. That restriction prevents people from drawing on this country's rich and diverse religious heritage for guidance, and it degrades the nation's moral discourse by placing a whole realm of theological reasoning out of bounds. The price of that sort of quarantine, at a time of moral dislocation, is – and has been – far too high." (Writer. Times magazine. "America's Holy War." p. 68. Dec. 9, 1991.)

Paul Gibson

" Religion presents another risk factor in gay youth suicide because of the depiction of homosexuality as a sin…Many traditionalists (e.g., Catholicism) and fundamentalist (e.g., Baptist) faiths still portray homosexuality as morally wrong or evil." ( Gay Male and Lesbian Suicide. Secretary of Health and Human Services Task Force essay.)

Kenneth Goff

"We have battled in America since the century's turn to bring to nothing any and all Christian influences and we are succeeding. While we today seem to be kind to the Christian, remember we have yet to influence the 'Christian world' to our ends…You must work until 'religion' is synonymous with 'insanity'…It is only necessary to work incessantly upon the official, using personal defamations, wild lies, false evidences and constant propaganda to make him fight for you against the church or against any practitioner." (Communist compilations. Brainwashing – A Synthesis of the Russian Textbook of Psychopolitics. Englewood, CO.)

Naomi Goldenberg

"The feminist movement in Western culture is engaged in the slow execution of Christ and Jahweh." (Jewish feminist.)

George Grant

"By 1963 the courts were protecting and favoring the new religion of humanism, which was declared a religion by the Supreme Court in 1940, while actually persecuting and limiting Christianity ." (p. 160. Grant. Ibid.)

George Grant (Cont.)

"Even moderate expressions of our culture's Judeo-Christian roots are now illegal. It's like stories we used to hear about coming out of Russia. I just can't believe that these things can happen here in America. But it does. It happens here in America all the time." (p. 14. Trial and Error. 1993.)

"There is a very obvious anti-Christian and Leftist slant that most of the ACLU's landmark cases take." (p. 28.Grant. Ibid.)

"The ACLU's discriminatory intolerance (toward Christianity) is a matter of record." (p. 70. Grant. Ibid.)

"According to the ACLU, the Christian faith is so powerful, so dangerous, and so intrusive that the founding fathers had to design the Constitution in order to protect us from it." (p. 72. Grant. Ibid.)

"The courts have yielded to the rhetoric and pressures of the likes of the ACLU and thus have been transformed from being friends of the faith into the enemies of the faith." (p. 145. Grant. Ibid.)

Senator Charles Grassley

"John Marshall's warning that the power to tax is the power to destroy has taken on far greater meaning…more specifically, the power of the Internal Revenue Service is threatening to destroy the freedom of religion , guaranteed by the First Amendment. As part of that guarantee, Congress has granted tax exemptions for churches to avoid excessive interference in their religious activities. There is no question that this objective has been undermined, and that the religious freedom of a number of church communities has been recklessly violated." (Address on "The Church Audit Procedures Act." Taken from: The Assault on Religion . by Russell Kirk. p. 61.)

Horace Greeley

"It is impossible to enslave mentally and socially a Bible-reading people. The principles of the Bible are the groundwork of human freedom."

Os Guinness

"The United States is at a turning point because of a decreasing influence of faith ." (p. 40. "The Devil's Gauntlet." Salt & Light. 1993.)

Francis Grund

"The religious habits of the Americans form not only the basis of their private and public morals, but have become so thoroughly interwoven with their whole course of legislation that it would be impossible to change them without affecting the very essence of their government." (Austrian journalist. 1837. As quoted in Richard John Neuhaus, The Naked Public Square. 1984.)

Jeremiah S. Gutman

"That which we would destroy, we first label pejoratively: A religion becomes a cult; proselytizing becomes brainwashing; persuasion becomes propaganda; missionaries become subversive agents; retreats, monasteries and convents become prisons; holy rituals become bizarre conduct; religious observance becomes aberrant behavior; devotion and meditation become psychopathic trances." (Deprogramming: Documenting the Issue. 1977.)


Alexander Hamilton

" 'The Christian Constitutional Society,' its object to be first: the support of the Christian religion; second: the support of the United States." (Signer and ratifier of the Constitution. 1802.)

Benjamin Hart

"America has become politically and culturally agnostic, and the Christian faith in the minds of many has come to represent intolerance." (Faith & Freedom. Christian Defense Fund. 1997. p. 20)

"Proponents of so-called pluralism feel compelled to ban religious considerations from public discourse because they know, instinctively if not intellectually, that their faith is in direct conflict with the God of the Bible, and that in the end the two positions are irreconcilable." (Hart. Ibid. p. 21)

"When a minister or a clergyman takes seriously unfashionable Christian doctrines which condemn sex outside marriage, homosexuality, abortion, and feminism, and injects his views into the political debate, he is immediately denounced as a 'reactionary.'"
(Hart. Ibid. pp. 21-22)

"The tedious and convoluted reasoning behind the Supreme Court's ongoing project to expunge all references to God from the public domain." (Hart. Ibid. p. 352)

"Who are we to say what is right and what is wrong?" is the common refrain (under the doctrine of pure pluralism). Clearly, society cannot long survive if this principle is pushed to its logical conclusion and everyone is free to write his own laws." (Hart. Ibid. p. 360)

"A society based on Christian principles provides for pluralism, but with enough restrictions to prevent civilization from degenerating into chaos." (Hart. Ibid. p. 360)

"Christians today are forced to support, with their tax money, the establishment of another religious faith that stands opposed to everything they believe. The new state church has taken the form of the public school." (Hart. Ibid. p. 363)

Senator Jesse Helms

"Within my own lifetime, I have seen the most ferocious assaults on Christian faith and morals; first on the part of the intellectual community, and then on the part of the government…the federal government has not even tried to conceal its hostility to religion." (Quoted from Who Will Rule the Future? by Paul McGuire.)

Carl F. H. Henry

"Secularism denounces supernaturalism and promotes a nonreligious or antireligious basis of social organization and morality. (Taken from: In Search of a National Morality by William Bentley Ball. p. 19.)

"Our generation is lost to the truth of God, to the reality of divine revelation, to the content of God's will, to the power of His redemption, and to the authority of His Word. For this loss it is paying dearly in a swift relapse into paganism." (p. 15. Twilight of a Great Civilization.)

Patrick Henry

"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 power to make laws!" (The Ten Commandments: Ten Short Novels of Hitler's War Against the Moral Code. Armin Robinson, editor. Simon & Shuster: New York, NY. 1943.)

H. Wayne House

"The Christian principles on which the country was primarily founded are rarely consulted other than for formalities of state, derision, or for the purpose of contrasts in the making of new laws." (p. 10. The Christian and American Law. 1998.)

"Critics often point to historical issues such as slavery, upon which many Christians did act inconsistently, in an effort to invalidate Christian participation in contemporary social issues." (p. 10. House. Ibid.)

"As the United States drifts from its Judeo-Christian foundation and as the state becomes ever more pervasive in American life, government could ultimately insist on full allegiance from the people, an allegiance belonging only to God." (p. 143. House. Ibid.)

James Davison Hunter

"The contemporary quarrel over church and state is not really about whether a wall of separation of church and state should exist or not…The real question is what does 'separation' mean?" (p. 262. Culture Wars: The Struggle to Define America. 1991.)

Joel C. Hunter

"There is enough Christianity in our country's history to make it a significant component of our heritage and identity." (p. 23. Prayer, Politics & Power. 1988.)

Henry Hyde

"The skeptical relativist attempt to mandate a naked public square is undemocratic. It is also a danger to democracy." (Misc.)

The anger I felt when they (the ACLU) tried to disenfranchise me because my religious stayed with me. These are dangerous people who make dangerous arguments. Some powerful members of the cultural elites in our country are so paralyzed by the fear that theistic notions might reassert themselves in the official activities of government that they will go to Gestapo lengths to inhibit such expression." (Congressman Henry Hyde – R-IL. American Family Journal. August. 1986.)



Kay Cole James

"For all the venom and fear spewed at members of the 'religious right,' most of today's churches are left alone…the nonreligious tend to look at our churches as benign institutions that create a placid and docile citizenry, having little impact on our culture." (p. 75. Transforming America from the Inside Out. 1995.)

"It has always been an irony to me that the 'religious right' has come under so much attack for being involved in politics when the black community has been doing it for hundreds of years. The Reverend Jesse Jackson is rarely, if ever, attacked for his involvement in politics." (p. 80. James. Ibid .)

"The criticism usually goes only to the religious right. 'Bigots,' 'intolerant,' 'hateful' – those labels get slapped on quickly and usually when we are winning debates and scoring points against liberals." (p. 96. James. Ibid .)

Justice John Jay

"Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers. It is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest, of a Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers." (The first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. Oct. 12, 1816.)

Thomas Jefferson

(Letter for Jefferson to Dr. Joseph Priestley. 1803; quoted in Maxfield et al. The Real Thomas Jefferson. p. 495.)

John Hopkins University

Paul Johnson

"In the last generation, with public Christianity in headlong retreat, we have caught our first, distant view of a de-Christianized world , and it is not encouraging."(A History of Christianity. 1976.)

George Sim Johnston

"They (liberal theologians) seldom attack religion directly, but seek rather to create a soft, undermining atmosphere in which it becomes finally unintelligible." (Break Glass in Case of Emergency. 1990.)

Peter Jones

"A world without Christmas mutely proclaims the end of Western civilization as we have known it and the beginning of the silent night of the human soul." (Spirit Wars: Pagan Revival in Christian America. 1997. p. 21)

"The misunderstood doctrine of separation of church and state has paralyzed Christianity, the religion most closely associated with America's history and culture." (p. 40. Jones. Ibid.)

"The secular press has already pegged orthodox Christians as bigots living on the lunatic fringe ." (p. 48. Jones. Ibid.)

"Imagine solving social problems with a Bible study in a culture where the Bible has been banned from public recognition and discourse." (p. 51. Jones. Ibid.)

"Until recently, Western society has borne the name Christendom, implying a Judeo-Christian understanding of male and female. Radical deconstruction favors neo-pagan gender confusion in an androgynous ideal. To succeed, the program must eradicate the last vestiges of Christendom from Western society. Patriarchy and normative heterosexuality must go. The broad liberal agenda behind these societal changes points to an all-inclusive monistic religion. People are profoundly religious." (p. 187. Jones. Ibid.)

"Perhaps one percent of vocal radicals can infect an entire society and with it large sections of the Christian church." (p. 196. Jones. Ibid.)

"In the last 30 years so many leaders in the news media, entertainment, business, national and international politics, the judiciary, academia and even the Church, have turned for personal renewal to a spirituality that they think is compatible with their past but which at every major point is diametrically opposed to Christianity." (p. 251. Jones. Ibid.)

"Gary L. Bauer, 'In Front of the Children,' Family Research Council Washington Watch (May 1993), reports that at the April 23-25 Homosexual March on Washington, the marchers called for the persecution of Christians by chanting, 'Bring on the lions.'" (p. 308. Jones. Ibid.)
