On today’s episode of Liberty Counsel’s “Faith and Freedom” radio program, Matt Barber accused various liberal organizations, including PFAW, of being “anti-Christian.”
Most of Barber’s ire was focused on the Madison WI based Freedom From Religion Foundation, which he said seeks to turn America into “Joseph Stalin’s Russia” before saying that groups such as we here at People For The American Way and our colleagues at Americans United For Separation of Church and State are driven by an “an anger in their heart toward God” and “a clear hostility toward Christianity and the Christian faith”:
What an ugly America the Freedom From Religion Foundation lives in. This is not George Washington’s America. this is not our constitutional republic that they envision, this is Joseph Stalin’s Russia and they are way out of bounds here. And, you know, for the Freedom From Religion Foundation to say that this is grossly inappropriate, the Freedom From Religion Foundation itself is grossly inappropriate.
In between the ALCU on kind of the more misguided but I think, in some instances, well-meaning all the way to the other end of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, you have groups like People For The American Way, Americans United For Separation of Church and State and these groups have kind of a combination of a hostility toward God, I think anger in their heart toward God, a rebellion toward God, a clear hostility toward Christianity and the Christian faith. And in some instances I think just an ill-informed and misguided interpretation of the Constitution and our nation’s history.
All of those things combined make for kind of an ugly witches brew that can very negatively affect freedom in the United States.
