With the recent “popularity” of books and movies such as Letter To A Christian Nation by Sam Harris and the more recent box office flopbuster The Golden Compass by openly anti-theist author Philip Pullman, and a host of other anti-Christian media, it is no wonder that Christian-bashing is on the rise. It is becoming more and more socially acceptable, and in many cases an almost expected requirement in some circles, to publicly attack not only adherents of the Christian faith, but the object of that faith as well.
In response to this growing trend, many much-needed organizations, such as the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ) and Christian Anti-Defamation Commission (CADC) have been launched to educate Christians and also defend the rights of Christians to practice their faith and worship God according to their own conscience. Christians need to be educated about their rights. In the United States, the right to freedom of religion is guaranteed under our constitution. Sadly, many Christians do not understand that it IS okay to freely speak out about moral issues in a public forum and that they do not have to leave their faith at the door of their workplace.
