New Poll: 61% Say Pastors Should Challenge Obama On Religious Persecution


NASHVILLE, TENN. – In a news conference today at the National Religious Broadcasters Convention in Nashville, Tennessee, Family Research Council (FRC) President Tony Perkins released new polling showing that 61 percent of polled Americans agreed that “pastors and churches should challenge the Obama administration when religious liberty is threatened.”

The polling company, inc./WomanTrend conducted the poll between February 20-23. One thousand adults were polled for the survey. The results have a 3.1 percent margin of error.

FRC has been a leader in defending the religious liberties of all Americans against the Obamacare Health and Human Services mandate that all employers must pay for drugs that can act like abortifacients in their health plans or pay fines, regardless of an employer’s religious views. FRC has filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court in the Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood cases. FRC has also written extensively on the Obama administration’s failure to promote religious liberty abroad.

“Americans are looking for pastors to defend religious liberty,” Perkins said at the news conference.  “Religious liberty is our First Freedom and it serves as the foundation for all other freedoms. Communities change when pastors speak up. If pastors will speak to the issues from a redemptive heart, we can see this country turn around,” concluded Perkins.

Rafael Cruz, director of Purifying Minstries and father of U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) encouraged pastors to speak with boldness by adding, “Too many pastors have been intimidated by a concept of separation of church and state not found in the Constitution.”

Dr. Robert Jeffress, senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Dallas, speaking at the news conference, said, “No president in history has launched an attack on religious liberty like President Obama.  If pastors remain AWOL on this issue like they have on others, we will lose the war for religious freedom that our forefathers gave their life’s blood to provide.”

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
