Christian leaders can help
The Institute for First Amendment Studies believes that, although we
may have political or theological differences, many of the Christian
leaders and groups mentioned in this report are responsible citizens
and organizations. When wrongs are pointed out, we believe these
individuals and groups will do the right thing. With this in mind, the
Institute for First Amendment Studies is calling for:
