Overview

Backfired by William J Federer

The faith that gave birth to tolerance is no longer tolerated!

* Ten Commandments taken down, "Under God" removed from Pledge, Prayer prohibited, Nativity Scenes banned, Religious Art & Music censored, Salvation Army & Boy Scouts defunded, Christmas carols disallowed...

* How did America go from Pilgrims seeking freedom to express their Christian beliefs to today's discrimination against those very beliefs in the name of tolerance?

"From its beginning, the new continent seemed destined to be the home of religious tolerance. Those who claimed the right of individual choice for themselves finally had to grant it to others."- Calvin Coolidge, May 3, 1925

Being that this book is made up almost entirely of primary sources, it is difficult to argue that what Federer has compiled is anything but the truth. Certainly, anyone can take quotes out of context; on the contrary, though, Federer puts quotes that have been misquoted back into their original context, which is refreshing.

I remember the first time I heard Mr. Federer. He was of the position that it was ok for states to disallow atheists to run for public office or to be even notary publics. This is most ironic because Federer states that his religion led to tolerance of other beliefs. Secularists had to fight for being tolerated in society. Just 150 years ago it was politically correct to imprison someone for the imaginary crime of "blasphemy." I believe that Mr. Federer if alive at that time would probably have defended those kind of laws. There is no free exercise in the bible. In fact worshiping other deities is punishable in the bible, including by death. Hardly a basis for freedom. The fact is, up to 50 years ago Christian conservatives were used to the government actively promoting their religion without restraint. Now that the government is limited in its' promotion of Christianity, men and women like Mr. Federer are angry. I support the right of Christians to freely proclaim their belief but the government must be neutral when it comes to religion. Let the marketplace of ideas decide the question if a deity exists or not.
