Religious Freedom Threatened in America!
Would it surprise you to know the United States, for the first time, has been placed on a worldwide list for notable religious persecution? Today, your First Amendment freedoms are being threatened as never before in the nation’s history. According to the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, there is a rising tide of government restrictions on religion in this country.
We must keep the pressure on, and keep fighting back. If we pause now, the anti-faith/anti-family/anti-freedom tsunami will overwhelm our nation. This is one of the main purposes for the Embassy for World Peace keeping our presence at the Nation’s Capitol. www.embassyforpeace.org
This year the attacks on God, prayer and faith have increased dramatically, but they have not gone unnoticed by God-fearing national and state leaders. The Congressional Prayer Caucus, an official caucus of the U.S. House of Representatives, has proven to be an effective means to push back the anti-God agenda. There are 105 current members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus and hundreds of state legislators in State Prayer Caucuses around the nation who recognize it is time for serious proactive measures.

Secularists have declared this to be “their decade” for the removal of God from the public square. Anti-faith groups such as the Secular Coalition of America (SCA) are determined to take a national leadership role in order to remove every vestige of God, the concept of moral absolutes, and religious freedom from our culture. The SCA which is headquartered in Washington, D. C., is an alliance of atheists, agnostics and humanists proactively seeking to destabilize the Judeo-Christian bedrock of our great nation. Founded in 2002, the SCA has brought together such organizations as Atheist Alliance International, the Institute for Humanist Studies, the Freedom from Religion Foundation, the American Humanist Association, as well as others.
Judeo-Christian principles secure freedom for all of us. A country absent of a moral conscious, leaves freedom to be defined by the state and a country with no moral compass, is then subject to the blowing winds of fallen humanity and quickly drifts toward the dangerous waters of intrusive governmental control and repression.
We can be confident when we stand on balanced scriptural principles and the solid ground of our founding documents. We covet your prayers and we need your ongoing financial support to network and equip with lawmakers who are gathering for prayer and uniting to fight for our right to be a nation that trusts in God. It is going to take a sincere commitment and deep sacrifice from each of us. We are on the front line, will you co-labor with us?
Next on the agenda! Government Control of Churches!
Is America on a path to see churches denied “charity” or “non-profit” status for its specific doctrines?
Not until every church accepts homosexuality, supports abortion as a right, and preaches that anyone can enter heaven will liberals stop their attack. This is not a time for Christians and conservatives to become soft on their policy positions and religious convictions. This is a time to stand boldly for truth and refuse to compromise our convictions.
A mere 25 years ago America was leading the way in religious liberty as we boldly told the world that the wall of “separation of church and state” was impenetrable and the government would never interfere in the matters of the church. People around the world looked with envy on America and our high regard for religious liberty.
It is time to stand up for your faith! It is time to stand up for Judeo-Christian principles according to the Ten Commandments!
