Soros Think Tank Decries ‘Christian Privilege’

December 15, 2013


As Christmas approaches, Christians across the U.S. are again reminded of how  far the secular left will go in order to erase any of the holiday’s true meaning  from the public square. Nevertheless, many of these same activists still contend  the faith has some stranglehold on the nation’s policymakers.

For many, it seems Christianity represents the only remaining special  interest group that can be castigated on a national scale with abandon. A recent  panel discussion sponsored by the far-left Center for American Progress  certainly bolstered that position.

Among the invited speakers was Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy, who heads the  Interfaith Alliance, a group funded by billionaire Democrat operative George  Soros. Despite his self-identification as a man of the cloth, Gaddy has some  unorthodox views about his own purported faith.

“See, I grew up in a part of the country where we really believed in  religious liberty,” he said, “but we really enforced bondage on everyone else,  and it was because we were Christians and we had the Bible.”

His comments coincide with the prevailing leftist assertion that Christians  are intolerant bigots; however, he unsurprisingly did not mention adherents to  the Muslim doctrine of imposing their faith through intimidation and  violence.

Unbelievably, Gaddy compared business owners who make the conscientious  decision to oppose gay marriage to segregationists. Furthermore, he seconded an  attendee’s allegation that Christians enjoy some enigmatic “privilege” in  American society.

Eunice Rho represented the American Civil Liberties Union during the  discussion, indicating she feels Christians inherently discriminate merely by  daring to live their lives in accordance to their faith. She called legislative  proposals designed to increase religious liberty “dangerous because they can  allow religion to be used to harm others.”

The conversation naturally returned to sexual perversion, as leftists find it  difficult to complete a sentence without castigating Christians as  homophobes.

Sally Steenland of the Faith and Progressive Policy Initiative cited what she  calls “a false equation” between religious liberty and gay marriage, “as if  those two are inherently opposed and you’ve got to choose one or the other.”

Finally, the panel blasted Christians for their belief in the sanctity of  life. NARAL Deputy Policy Council Lissy Moskowitz engaged in the absurd  “slippery slope” argument that if an employer does not want to pay for his staff  to murder their children, “what’s not to stop another boss from saying, ‘Well, I  don’t want to cover vaccines, mental health, blood transfusions….’”

Despite engaging in the same ad hominem attacks for which the left is  defined, this panel was correct on one front: Christians are indeed  privileged.

Though despised by the world, Jesus promised his followers they would  experience love and favor beyond measure from the only source that truly matters  – the God of the universe.
