Top Ten Instances of Christian Bashing in America, 2008

INSTANCE #10: Jack Black Musical Video
In a short video posted on FunnyorDie.com entitled, "Prop 8 The Musical," an all star cast of Hollywood celebrities perform a low budget musical farce that defames Christ, mocks Christians and distorts the teaching of the Bible. Jack Black played the lead role of Jesus.


INSTANCE #9: Bill Maher Gratuitously Attacks Pope
Bill Maher, host of the HBO program Real Time, made light of the Pope during his recent visit and the tragic sexual abuse scandal. Maher said, "Now I know what you're thinking, Bill. You can't be saying that the Catholic Church is no better than this creepy (radical Mormon polygamist) Texas cult. For one thing, alter boys can't even get pregnant. But really, what tripped up the little cult on the prairie was that they only abused hundreds of kids, not thousands all over the world. Cults get raided; religions get parades... If you have a few hundred followers and you let some of them molest children, they call you a cult leader. If you have a billion, they call you Pope."


INSTANCE #8: ESPN Anchor Dana Jacobson's "F--- Jesus" Remark
Speaking at an ESPN corporate event in Atlantic City, N.J., to honor ESPN Radio personalities Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic, Dana Jacobson let go with a steam of vulgar remarks; "F--- Notre Dame," "F--- Touchdown Jesus" and finally "F--- Jesus." Jacobson was suspended for a few days for the incident.


INSTANCE #7: Minnesota University Professor Desecrates Communion
A Biology Professor from the University of Minnesota, Paul Zachary Myers, recently desecrated a consecrated communion wafer from a Catholic Mass. Meyer's has also asked people to steal the Eucharist for him in order that he might desecrate it and display it on his blog.


INSTANCE #6: Religulous the Movie
Bill Maher released a very shallow, pseudo-intellectual documentary entitled Religulous. The movie did not cover any new intellectual ground. It simply raised the old attacks on the faith. Maher studiously avoided being fair and did not allow for legitimate Christian answers from any leading Christian intellectuals.


INSTANCE #5: Chaplains Fired for Praying in Jesus' Name
Chaplains for the State of Virginia are being denied their right to pray in Jesus' name. Six chaplains were fired for continuing to pray in Jesus' name. Earlier this year in Virginia, Rev. Hashmel Turner, a city councilman in Fredericksburg, was told by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that his prayers during city council meetings that ended in Jesus' name will continue to be banned.


INSTANCE #4: Colorado Law Criminalizes the Bible
SB200, a Colorado state bill recently signed into law, criminalizes the Bible. Section 8 of the bill entitled "Publishing of discriminative matter forbidden" makes publishing the Bible illegal because it contains anti-homosexual passages. This is part of a larger effort to criminalize the expression of certain opinions and beliefs.


INSTANCE #3: Barack Obama Defames Christianity
According to research into President Elect Obama's own statements about faith, and an examination of Obama's position on moral issues, CADC has determined that by any biblical and historic Christian standard, Barack Obama is not a Christian, although he claims he is a "devout Christian."


INSTANCE #2: Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin Is Attacked
Alaska Governor, Sarah Palin, came under sharp attack by some in the mainstream media because she self-identifies as a Christian. The Washington Post published a cartoon by Pat Oliphant mocking Palin because she has a background as a Pentecostal/Charistmatic Christian. A suspicious arson fire at Sarah Palin's home church recently caused over $1,000,000 in damage.

And finally, the #1 Christian Bashing Instance in America for 2008...

INSTANCE #1: Radical Homosexuals Assault Prop 8 Marriage Supporters in California
During and after the November campaign stories flooded in of pro-Prop 8 signs being taken, people verbally and physically assaulted, church property and private automobiles vandalized, and person's jobs and pastor's lives threatened simply for exercising their right to campaign and vote in support of traditional marriage.


BONUS INSTANCE: Senator Grassley's Abuse of Power
US Senator Grassley, a member of the powerful Senate Finance Committee, has demanded the financial records of a number of very prominent conservative, evangelical broadcast ministries. The demand was based on Grassley's concern that these ministries are not spending their contributions properly. Grassley has admitted his concerns were in part driven by media accounts.

Please help the Christian Anti-Defamation continue to fight instances of Christian Bashing in 2009.  We need your support.

Pretty soon The Voice of the Martyrs is going to have to put America's name on
their list of regimes that persecute Christians, not only America but California
as well.

Regarding chaplains not being allowed to pray in the name of Jesus, I'm
immediately reminded of New Tesatment instances when those sharing the gospel of
Christ were ordered not to allude to or speak in the name of Jesus--maligned,
threatened, beaten and imprisoned if they continued to do so. Persecution for
Christ's sake has most definitely arrived.

If I were allowed to ask just one question across the USA, and each
unbelieving person in any type of position over others would have
to answer....this is the one I have.

In your unbelief of God, Jesus
and the Holy Spirit, why o\' why is there so much warring over
Jesus name if He is not real, has no power, what is the harm for those
who believe?

None would be able to answer....because there is POWER in
JESUS name...

These are sad sad times we live in. I am actually afraid of what may lie in our
future as Americans with a president like Obama.

avatar Why do they work so hard to protect the rights of sinners while ignoring the
rights of CHRISTIANS!?! We can not let this fear of being politically incorrect
push us christians under the bus!

If any other group were being attacked
like we are the government would take action!

I live in California and it's scary sometimes. You advocate for your faith and
try to be kind, but hostilities are there. Someone mentioned Voice of the
Martyrs having the USA on the list; it might be.
God bless.

Christians have been hated & persecuted for centuries, it's what we must
accept and expect as our plight in life, ...Jesus said it would
be so.

What's different now though, is that God has allowed a man who
apparently hates and openly attacks Christians to be our president. A president who is an ideologue who views us as
people who have "hijacked morality".

Outside of having
a "Saul of Tarsus Conversion" ...we ar...
