"PERSECUTION: HOW LIBERALS ARE WAGING WAR AGAINST CHRISTIANITY."

David Limbaugh, conservative syndicated columnist and brother of Rush, has written a new book which is sure to draw the wrath of liberals and secularists everywhere -- "PERSECUTION: HOW LIBERALS ARE WAGING WAR AGAINST CHRISTIANITY."

Are Christians persecuted? In America? Open your eyes -- it's happening right now!

Persecution -- that's the name for it. Tolerance might be the highest virtue in our popular culture, but it doesn't often extend to Christians these days.

Christians are increasingly being driven from public life, denied their First Amendment rights, and even actively discriminated against for their beliefs.

In this relentless exposť of political correctness run amok, best-selling author David Limbaugh rips apart the liberal hypocrisy that condones selective mistreatment of Christians in the mainstream media, Hollywood, our schools and universities, and throughout our public life.

In "PERSECUTION" you'll enter the hotly contested battle for the soul of our public schools. Here are appalling -- but true -- stories of how anti-Christian social engineers not only prohibit school prayer and forbid students from wearing Christian symbols, like a simple cross, but even expunge the real story of Christianity in America from history textbooks.

Worse still, in the name of "diversity," "tolerance," "multiculturalism," and "sex education," the social engineers actively inculcate hatred of Christianity as ignorant, repressive, and offensive. Not exactly the agenda of most parents whose tax dollars support the public schools.

Looking honestly at the dominant influence of Christianity in America's colonial culture and schools, where the Bible was routinely used as a textbook, Limbaugh makes a compelling case that the education students receive today is not what the Founders would have endorsed.

Indeed, they would have been outraged at what is taught -- and what the courts say -- in their name, under the pretext of the non-constitutional and woefully misunderstood phrase: "separation of church and state."

Limbaugh zeroes in on how activist judges misinterpret and misapply the Constitution to eliminate Christianity from American government and public life. He reveals a society-wide disinformation campaign that has successfully obscured, for many people, what the Constitution actually says about religious freedom. While allegedly promoting religious freedom, liberals actually suppress it.

Providing details of case after shocking case, Limbaugh demonstrates that the anti-Christian forces now controlling significant portions of our society aggressively target the slightest hint of public Christianity for discrimination, yet ardently encourage the spread of secular values - including "alternative sexuality" and promiscuity.

Limbaugh cuts cleanly through this confusion and distortion, exploring the deeply held Christian faith of the Founding Fathers, and showing that Christianity and Judeo-Christian principles are essential -- and were recognized by the Founders as essential -- to the unique political liberties Americans enjoy.

PERSECUTION is an indispensable tool to help Christians reclaim their right (and duty) to enter the political arena and to try to influence the course of this country. It helps every liberty-loving citizen to champion what America is supposed to be about-religious freedom.

Among the evidence presented here that those who hate Christianity are firmly in power:

* How the courts and the media establishment have established the modern idea of separation of Church and state, despite the fact that it's found nowhere in the Constitution or any other founding document!

* Chief Justice Rehnquist's ringing (but unsuccessful) argument proving that the Establishment Clause didn't require the public sector to be "insulated from all things which may have religious significance or origin"

* How the education establishment vigorously endorses and promotes values that most Christians find repugnant -- in violation of the Constitutional protection of free exercise of religion!

* Three false assumptions you have to make in order to accept the Supreme Court's argument that prayer in schools is unconstitutional

* Historians at America's best universities: obsessed with sex while busy purging all mention of Christianity from our history books p> * The California public school that forced seventh grade students to pretend they were Muslims, pray in the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful, and chant "praise to Allah, Lord of Creation"

* Sex education in public schools: evidence that it has promoted, not prevented, sexual promiscuity among teenagers

* Six ways the media establishment has energetically promoted homosexuality as normal

* How colleges and universities regularly fire (or decline to hire) Christian professors -- and even Christian sports coaches

* Churches: how anti-Christian bureaucrats have targeted them using fire, safety, and zoning laws -- and even sicced the IRS on them

* California's state legislature: the law it passed allowing a teenage boy to report his foster parents for a civil-rights violation if they refused to let him dress like a girl.

"With passion and precision, David Limbaugh provides overwhelming evidence of discrimination against Christians in America.

From the courtroom to the schoolroom to the newsroom, Persecution exposes the hypocrisy and bigotry of the secular, anti-Christian Left.

Limbaugh's meticulously researched book is a devastating indictment of liberal intolerance -- and a call to arms for all true believers of religious liberty to reclaim their rightful place in the public square." -- MICHELLE MALKIN "David Limbaugh brings a lawyer's mind and a Christian's heart to his subject. While Jesus said to expect persecution if we live for Him, that doesn't absolve the persecutors from responsibility for their hypocritical actions, especially when they claim to be the champions of tolerance, diversity, pluralism and academic freedom."
-- CAL THOMAS

"At last -- some sense in the Church/State debate! In his great new book Persecution, David Limbaugh shows how liberals have undermined our Constitution and are waging undeclared war on the very people -- Americans of faith -- who have made America the beacon of freedom and justice that it is. Buy this book, read it, and send a copy to every politician, judge, and Supreme Court Justice you can find." -- SEAN HANNITY

"Often the people who clamor for tolerance are among the most intolerant people in our society. David Limbaugh documents this in his new book, Persecution -- in particular, the intolerance against Christians. This book is sorely needed in our day when the only 'acceptable' prejudice of our day is the bias against Christians." -- D. JAMES KENNEDY

There is no separation of church and state in the Constitution. That concept is a Left wing contrivance to purge morality and Christianity from our country. The only restriction in the Constitution is that the Federal Government shall not establish a state church, e.g. the Church of England.

You're so right.

And Limbaugh's book is timely.

"Anything goes" is the way it is in schools now

"Anything EXCEPT Christianity."

The soul of public schools? Let another government run institution die off. Should be privatized.

No, it doesn't say that. It says:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion
Which is different from "establishing" a state church.

The problem is that religion -- all religion -- teaches that there is something above and beyond the State, and that violates the first premise of the liberal religion. So this idea must be eradicated at all costs.

After all, these guys couldn't get a real job in the private sector if they had to. They desperately need to stay in power. It's the only way that they can survive.

Remember the two state legislators a few years ago who were defeated for re-election and sued their constituents for depriving them of their constitutional right to hold public office? This is typical of the same kind of liberal mindset.

There is one other minor restriction regarding religion in the constitution, and it's that there shall be no religous test to hold public office (or words to that effect).

The third and final mention of religion in the constitution is that congress shall pass no law abridging the freedom of religion. The supreme court seems to define this with the narrowest of interpretations while broadly interpreting other rights like freedom of the speech.

The Liberal response would include:..In the name of Christianity, Native-Americans were slaughtered, Africans were made slaves, alleged witches were persecuted.

Hmm,..I'm in California and missed that story. I'll see if I can find the actual story and details.

Ah, the Liberal response. However, that response ignores the fact that, at the time it was written, this amendment was specifically included by the Founders to prevent the government from establishing an equivalent to the Church of England.

Of course, that's not sufficent for the Left. They want to ban all religion so they have 'reinterpreted' the context (in the full glory of the Liberal view that the Consitution is an 'evolving' document) to meet your statement.

If one examines the meaning of the amendment in the context of the Founders intent (as it should be done), one finds the Left is, as usual, wrong.

Limbaugh makes a compelling case that the education students receive today is not what the Founders would have endorsed. I came across my copy of the goals of the communist party which were read into the congressional record in 1963 and I was reminded that #30 on the list was to discredit the founding fathers. It looks like they are still working on that one, although they have already achieved many of their other goals.

Just to remind people of the constant struggle to preserve our way of life: (pay particular attention to #27)

EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

Thursday, January 10, 1963



Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman's request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following "Current Communist Goals," which she identifies as an excerpt from "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen:

[From "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen]

CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

I've never seen that list, amazing how much is the agenda of the liberal left today and how much is accomplished already. I have this book on my reading list now. Have to finish three others first. Thanks for the tip.

I don't know how many times I will have to say this.

The issue was not about seperation of church and state, as they would have you think.

The issue was about seperation of the POWER of church and state. A totally different concept.
