Her book jacket reads:
Right now, people in powerful places want nothing less than to eradicate Christian faith from American society.
At first the attacks were subtle. The Supreme Court ruled that children can't pray in school. The Ten Commandments were removed from our classrooms and, later, our courtrooms. Now pastors are being imprisoned for speaking out against homosexuality from their own pulpits, people in New York are fired from their jobs, and kids in California are suspended from school. Their "crimes"? Nothing more than exercising their religious freedoms.
How in the world did we get to this place in a "free" and civilized society? And how far will it go?
While you have the right to remain silent and watch as Christianity becomes criminalized in America, it's not what God would have you do.
If it sounds kind of "out there" it is because it is.
Her first point, prayer in school and the Ten Commandments - she misses that America is in fact secular by design. Religion is a private matter and not to be infused in our public institutions.
Her second point, pastors being imprisoned - well perhaps they should not degrade themselves and Christianity by preaching hate speech in a public forum in violation of federal and state laws.
Her third and fourth points - well again, if you break the law...
Folger has a long history of extremist beliefs and out of the mainstream positions. Yet, she has access to people in power so that makes her dangerous.
I am adding Janet Folger and her faith2action organization to my nutball list. I know Pastor Brad will object, but what the hell. There will be more to come on this I am sure.
