During Values Voter Summit 2014, the American Family Association released what best could be described as part-public service message, part-call to action, part advertisement called "A Time TO Speak", a film project detailing the Association's position that freedom of religious expression is under attack. Here is their statement:
The freedom of religious expression was chief among America's founding principles-However, today there is an unprecedented effort to deny this most basic of human rights in almost every area of American life. A Time to Speak is a 60-minute film from the American Family Association highlighting the urgent need for Christians to pray, speak out and vote. It is a clarion call for the Church to break the silence and preserve this freedom for the coming generations.
"Our religious freedoms are under full frontal assault. I'm more convinced than ever that A Time To Speak can educate pastors and church leaders on the dangers of losing religious liberty. It will also equip them with resources to turn the tide in the most important endeavor of my lifetime. If we lose now, the window of opportunity to turn it around will close."
I do not disagree that there is an inherent conflict between speaking out about one's personal religious beliefs and the P.C. Police. I think we should stand up for all permissible free speech, especially when we disagree. How else can we expect others to stand with us when our rights are threatened?
