Last week, the anti-faith group Americans United for Separation of Church and State launched a full-scale attack on Liberty Counsel under the title, “More Lies From Lynchburg” (one of Liberty Counsel’s principal locations).Their charge? That Liberty Counsel is lying when we encourage pastors to preach on “biblical and moral issues” in this election year.
AU accused me of getting into “swampy territory” by advising “clergy to preach on ‘biblical and moral issues’ and then ‘discuss positions of the candidates’ on those issues.”
“Swampy territory” for preaching on biblical issues?
+ + Major campaign to silence pastors and churches
This same group has launched a misnamed national campaign called “Project Fair Play” that includes thinly-veiled threats to pastors and churches about possible “church electioneering” and warns that the IRS “can revoke the institution’s tax-exempt status or levy significant fines on the house of worship or its leaders.”
These are classic bullying tactics, and I simply will not let groups like this silence the voice of Christians!
But I cannot fight this battle alone.
+ + Letter of Protest
That is why I am asking you to sign a very important “Letter Of Protest” opposing efforts like this to silence the voice of Christians.
Go here to sign the letter:
+ + 25,000 signatures needed by February 7
I want to deliver 25,000 Letters of Protest directly to Americans United by February 7. I also want to have your Letter of Protest on file so we can quickly respond each time an individual, organization or the media tries to silence people of faith this election year.
Please take a moment to sign and then rally your friends.
Thank you so much for your immediate action, and your prayers.

Please sign a national, grassroots petition to help Liberty Counsel protect the rights of citizens to celebrate Christmas.
For more information and to sign:
Last year, Liberty Counsel handled an unprecedented number of cases of anti-Christian hostility during Christmas (more than 200 in all).
Schoolchildren in Wisconsin and New Jersey told they can’t sing “Silent Night, Holy Night” and “Oh, Little Town of Bethlehem” unless Christian references are removed!
The city of Boston, Massachusetts attempting to rename its traditional Christmas Tree a “Holiday Tree”…
Boise, Idaho, bus drivers ordered not to display “Merry Christmas on city buses to avoid a lawsuit.
The list of Liberty Counsel cases goes on and on.
Go here to read about dozens more:
+ +One missing ingredient…
While we had tremendous success defending Christmas, the LA Times even said we led the fight to Help Save Christmas, we were missing one vital ingredient — an intangible that is critical in winning the battle to HELP SAVE CHRISTMAS…
We needed to be able to mobilize a grassroots army to take action whenever and wherever hostile attacks took place — concerned citizens who will take a stand to “Help Save Christmas” from the attacks of the ACLU and others.
Will you stand with citizens across the nation by signing our petition and becoming part of our growing army to “Help Save Christmas”?
Go here to sign: Liberty Counsel
Thanks in advance for taking action with us!
Founder and Chairman
