The Obama Justice Department and liberal groups are joining forces to marginalize Christian organizations in the political arena and falsely brand them as hate groups. That’s the message from Ken Blackwell of the Family Research Council.
Last month, the FRC was targeted by a gunman who was upset with the group’s biblical stands on marriage and the unborn. The man shot and injured a security guard but was apprehended before threatening anyone else. Blackwell and other FRC officials contend the shooter was motivated to take violent action after the liberal Southern Poverty Law Center labeled the FRC as an official hate group. Blackwell says it’s ridiculous to say his organization is a hate group when traditional marriage has been backed in every state where the issue has been on the ballot, is the official position of the Republican party and was the stated position of President Obama until just a few months ago.
He also contends that groups like this are getting assistance from the Obama administration because of their mutual efforts to change America from a God-fearing, freedom loving society to one where the state is the ultimate authority.
Blackwell also reports that FRC security guard Leo Johnson is making progress in his recovery but has not returned to work.
