For all of the smoke and furor from the Christian community about the city of Chicago’s recent decision to ban promotional clips of the upcoming movie The Nativity Story from its Christmas festival in Daley Plaza1, I have yet to hear any of these same people running to the defense of Colorado homeowner, Lisa Jensen2.
Pastor Oliver “Buzz” Thomas’s article seeking moral justification for homosexuality based on science and the Bible appeared in USA Today (November 20, 2006) under the title “When religion loses its credibility.” He argued that science, like the science that Galileo proposed to support his theory of a restructured cosmos, is overwhelmingly in favor of the claim that homosexuality is genetically determined.
Pastor Oliver “Buzz” Thomas wrote an article that appeared in USA Today (November 20, 2006) under the title “When religion loses its credibility.” Similar articles have been written before. Jimmy Carter wrote “Judge Not” in the February 27, 1996 issue of the Atlanta Constitution. Similar to the Thomas article, Carter reserves his jabs for the “religious right.”
It seems the only way to get a religious book published by a secular press these days is to write some outrageous things about what the Bible claims to teach and how conservative Christians are evil, stupid, misguided, and just downright hateful.
A little over two years ago, American Vision implemented an aggressive promotional strategy designed to equip Christians to restore the Biblical foundation of this nation. Specifically, the strategy was to develop and distribute as many Biblical worldview training materials as possible to as many people as possible. We believe this strategy will help us obey and fulfill the Great Commission to make disciples and teach them to obey all of Christ’s commandments (Matt. 28:18-20). As a result, God has blessed American Vision with exponential growth in just two years.
