New Web Campaign Targets Christian Groups

Ad Feedback

Online political activists recently launched a campaign that pressures businesses to discriminate against customers and charities based on their faith.
The Family Research Council say the activists are targeting the Charity Give Back Group, formerly the Christian Values Network.
The group allows businesses to donate a portion of profits to charities, including pro-family groups such as the FRC and Focus on the Family.    

FRC officials say the campaign is just another attempt to silence opponents of same-sex marriage.

"Those companies which are easily swayed by this small but vocal group of activists risk alienating not only millions of consumers but also shareholders, charities, and churches," FRC President Tony Perkins warned.

"We are asking people of faith to contact these retailers and respectfully request that these companies demonstrate their respect for the religious freedom of their customers by maintaining neutrality on cultural issues and ignoring the demands of these online political activists," he said.

Peter Sprigg, a senior fellow for policy studies at the FRC, shed more light on the anti-religion campaign on the CBN News Channel's Midday News, Aug. 29. Click play to watch.
