America Won’t Be Happy!
16 March 2006
“The War on Christians” conference is coming to D.C., featuring a modified-A-list of conservative heavyweights organized by Vision America, including Alan Keyes, Gary Bauer, Sen. John Cornyn, Phyllis Schlafly, Sen. Sam Brownback and Rep. Tom DeLay, as well as some Jews — the latter apparently such a newsworthy addition that it warranted its own press release: “Jews Confront the War on Christians.” Other target-specific panels will include “The News Media: Megaphone For Anti-Faith Values,” “The Judiciary: Overruling God,” and “The Gay Agenda: America Won’t Be Happy.”

Its another to perpetuate the trope that there is a War on Christians. Meanwhile, the actual war, which is exacting a real cost, is going on over there –>.
