ISIS Islamic radicals and the culture war against secularism are both part of the same worldwide threat to religious freedom, according to a Christian conference being held this weekend.
On Sunday, Oct. 12, conservative Christian groups — like the American Family Association (AFA), the Family Research Council (FRC) and other fringe groups — will meet in Washington, D.C. to outline a “national strategic plan that will bear fruit within 30 days and will greatly impact the critical midterm elections.”
The simulcast event, called iPledge Sunday, will feature well-known culture warriors like David Barton, the Benham brothers, Tony Perkins and Mat Staver.
Throughout the month, organizers have been advertising the event with web videos, which warn that “things are going from bad to worse in our nation and abroad.”
“Christians are being beheaded in the Middle East, Israel is being attacked from all sides,” the video says. “And back home, many of our religious freedoms are under severe legal restriction.”
The video asks for voters to take a stand against the “wicked” and against the “evildoers.”
Some of those legal restrictions include the Bible being “banished from our public schools and our public squares,” according to a description that’s included with the video.
And the iPledge Sunday website also points to abortion, court decisions on same-sex marriage, Common Core curriculum in the schools, and rules against pastors politicking from the pulpit.
“The bottom line: If the Church will rise up and vote, we can elect government leaders who will defend the unborn and the persecuted, support freedom of conscience and speech, limit the role of the federal government in education, and appoint judges who support traditional marriage,” the website warns. “The choice is ours.”
