More About This Book

Overview

"The Church is the conscience of the State," wrote Martin Luther King, Jr., but is it anymore? With threats of Hate Crime Legislation and the Fairness Censorship Doctrine, find out how churches used to speak on public issues, but are afraid to now? Read how pastors previously endorsed candidates and spoke on political issues such as slavery, war, prohibition, child labor, women’s suffrage, Sunday blue laws and civil rights? What was originally meant by “separation of church & state”? When and how did things "change"? Read how Congress in 1913 created the IRS with its 501(c)3 status for non-profit organizations, and then limited them in 1919 and 1939. Find out why Lyndon B. Johnson amended the 1954 IRS Code to restrict 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations? See what effect McCarthyism and the 1950’s anti-Communist movement had? With 78 percent of Americans being Christian and 2 percent Jewish, find out how the 1 percent atheists effectively advanced their agenda. Has freedom of the majority become tyranny of a minority? Read Federal Court cases that actually define atheism and secularism as religions. See documented connections with communism by ACLU founder Roger Baldwin and other leaders. In contrast to churches, discover the treatment of other 501(c)3 non-profit organizations, such as the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, Rockefeller Foundation, Carnegie Foundation, etc. You will be fascinated as the puzzle pieces of history fit together!
