Christianity Under Attack
Christianity is in fact under attack from all sides and even from within as the posts below have shown. Here is a piece by John Newby that does a pretty good job of laying it out.

Christianity is under attack on the political, educational and media front. Despite what you may hear, the founding fathers made it extremely clear as to the intent of the founding documents.
The founding fathers guaranteed us “freedom OF religion” and not “freedom from religion.” Some ill informed say the Constitution has built a “separation of church and State” wall to guide us in these hard-to-define times. It’s only hard to define to those that don’t agree. It’s actually pretty straight forward to those that care to read it. I challenge anyone to find that statement or any similar statement in the Constitution. It doesn’t exist.
Emotions neither prove or disprove facts. The bottom-line is this country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles; they have been a part of our heritage and culture since the Mayflower. Our third President, Thomas Jefferson, who many historical illiterates claim created the statements in the Federalist papers supporting a ‘separation of church and state,’ said the following: “God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the gift of God?...Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.”Of course, the media and politicians have help. Unfortunately, thanks to public education going from the 3 “R’s” to the 3 “D’s”, degeneracy, disorientation and deconstruction, the education and learning about our Constitution and the founding fathers has all but been eliminated from the public education forum. If you want solid history, good luck. You’ll have to find it elsewhere. Textbooks have become “Fact-Free” zones where the ‘founding fathers’ are now ‘framers.’We certainly can’t be sexist.
Our public schools, the great supporters of the dumbing down of America will now teach “Why Derrick has Two Daddies” before they will teach founding principles. They’ll teach kids how to use condoms before they will teach about the founding fathers. They will support Gay/Lesbian clubs and have Gay awareness day, but heaven forbid we have a church day or Christian club that meets on school property. They create schools for gays and lesbians, but can’t post the 10 commandments. The pledge has all but been eliminated; don’t want to offend any ACLU wannabies and atheists. If I didn’t know better, I might think public education has adopted the motto of the “Bonehead Club of Dallas.” It reads, “To learn more and more about less and less, until eventually we shall know everything about nothing.”
That is unless; there is an underlying agenda. It’s my opinion, that prayer and the 10 commandments aren’t even the real issue. God is the real issue and until God has been removed and eliminated in every way the onslaught will not stop. The only way to eliminate God is to re-write history books, change what is being taught and encourage sexually deviant behavior. God must be attacked on every front. If they can’t get it through the proper political process, then they force it through the liberal courts.
