(disclaimer: the OP is not for any religion over another. This post is not about religion)
In recent years we have seen the increase of the restriction of religious expressions of faith. But the troubling trend is not across the board of
religions but more specifically targeted against one Religion in particular, Christianity.
defines a hate group as the following:
A hate group is an organized group or movement that advocates and practices hatred, hostility, or violence towards members of a race, ethnicity,
religion, gender, sexual orientation or other designated sector of society. According to the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), hate
groups' "primary purpose is to promote animosity, hostility, and malice against persons belonging to a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation,
or ethnicity/national origin which differs from that of the members of the organization." The Southern Poverty Law Center's (SPLC) definition of a
"hate group" includes those having beliefs or practices that attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable
Does not this definition particularly, "an organized group or movement that advocates and practices hatred, hostility, or violence towards members of
a race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation or other designated sector of society" describe Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF)?
When I first heard of FFRF I thought they were an organization setup for the purpose of keeping the Govt from setting up or promoting any religion in
Government and Federally funded Schools and organizations. Separation fo Religion and State a noble cause indeed.
But over the years I have seen this is not true of FFRF. They are particularly geared at keeping One Religion and its practices out of Govt,
federally funded schools and organizations, while not opposing any other religions or organized spiritual organizations practices. The opening
statement of their welcome also shows they are against WESTERN Society this shows true in that they have not by any public record or media story ever
been found to oppose EASTERN religions and their practices in any Govt office, or federally funded school or organization.
Recently I went to the FFRF website to see how they effectively are fighting against RELIGIONS that may somehow be promoted or established in our Govt
and federally funded schools and organizations. I was surprised to see that only religion they were actively opposing, in the public and private
arena, was limited to Christianity.
As I read through each of the tabs listed from their home page the disturbing truth of their single ended and hateful agenda was unfolding. For
example under the tab publications were only anti-Christian things like “Debaptism Certificates”, which is done tongue in cheek mockery of
Christian Baptism. And all the books promoted are against Christianity and separation of church (Christian religion only) and state.
Now under their “Legal” tab you can click on “Legal Challenges” the read each of the listed challenges and see that their legal actions have
been geared and pointed towards Christian Organizations, Schools, and other Christian cults i.e. Catholicism. Not one Islamic challenge, not one
Hindu Challenge not one Wicca challenge can be noted. And that is pretty much the scope of their websites clear stated purpose.
It is clearly seen by their web page and their recent actions such as Billboard calling people to believe in man and not God only being erected during
the Christmas Holiday or Christian Holidays from Thanksgiving to Christmas and also during Easter holiday. That this group is only attacking one
particular group fo people and on religion Christianity. This groups members were recorded on video attacking a Christian woman holding up a cross at
an event in Palm Springs California tearing up her cross and spewing hate speech at her. Also more recently supporters of FFRF were part of a group
that attacked and beat up a Christian pastor while he was street preaching a bonafide civil right. www.youtube.com...
another man beaten because he of his views and the sign he held:
According to the FFRF website they defend gay rights and are outspoken for the
GLBT agenda of equality yet those they support are violent offenders against Christianity as well.
Not one instance of FFRF filing cases against Islam broadcasting Muslim prayers over loudspeakers into the street of NY. Not one law suit over the
five in the morning call to prayer over loudspeaker to Muslims in many of the major cities in America. Nor have they said anything against High
Schools in California that have set prayer rooms for Muslim Students while they file suit against Christians wanting to pray at the flag pole at the
Under the definition of a Hate group is clearly states: A hate group is an organized group or movement that advocates and practices hatred,
hostility, or violence towards members of a race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation or other designated sector of society.
clearly falls under the description of a hate group as found.
This Hate group has a 501 not-for profit tax exemption yet they violate the civil rights of ONLY one group of people and religion, Christianity.
Their IRS Status should be revoked and they should be investigated as committing hate crimes (i.e. filing law suits, open public attack on their web
page) against a targeted people group who only wish the practice their religion freely and openly.
SPLC should list the FFRF as a bonafide hate group, they should not be allowed to get 501 IRS status just like any other hate group, and the American
people who truly think freely should see that this is just another hate group receiving US grants to promote hatred of Christianity.
Why is it the the freedom of speech seems to only apply to everyone but Christians?
Why is it the freedom of religion in public places is not allowed for Christians but allowed for all other religions and spiritual groups?
Why is it only Christians are targeted for separation of religion and State and all other religions and groups are not separated?
Because of the persistent animosity, hostility, and malice propagated by hate groups like Freedom From Religion Foundation.
