FREEDOM’S GATE: Christian civil rights call to action movement for America

Freedom's Gate host Kevin Fobbs will be speaking with Civil Rights commentators Hallie Neill and Rebecca Mahan today and you are invited to join the conversation.


WASHINGTON, August 25, 2015 — Is it criminal to be a Christian in America? That question which may get an answer that millions of American Christians won’t like in coming months and years.

Freedom’s Gate host Kevin Fobbs will be speaking with Civil Rights commentators Hallie Neill and Rebecca Mahan today at 4:30pm on Communities Digital News (player located below) and you are invited to join the conversation.

For many Christians, the criminalization of Christianity began when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of gay marriage in June. This decision for many Christian leaders as well as four dissenting justices represented a possible disenfranchisement of Christian civil rights and was in direct confrontation with the U.S. Constitution.

In fact, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas totally disagreed with the court’s decision on gay marriage. He wrote that the majority’s decision was “at odds not only with the Constitution, but with the principles upon which our nation were built.” Justice Thomas added that the five liberal justices were invoking a definition of “liberty” that the Constitution’s framers “would not have recognized, to the detriment of the liberty they sought to protect,according to National Journal.

The American Christian Civil Rights Movement (ACCRM) arose from the aftermath of the decision. ACCRM’s goal is the uniting of churches and Christians to defend and protect Christian civil rights. Hallie Neill, ACCRM’s director of media and communication, stressed that the organization is mounting an organized national effort to protect Christian faith, freedom and rights provided in the First Amendment.

Rebecca L. Mahan, national organizational recruitment director of ACCRM, agrees and maintains that the question that Americans of Christian faith have to ask themselves is whether they are willing to witness or permit the undoing of those basic rights given by God, with the arrival of the second Revolutionary War in America. This is a war against the religious civil rights guaranteed by the First Amendment of the Constitution.

Mahan, a former Marine and police officer, understands war and believes that, since open warfare has been declared on the basic rights given by God, Christians need to prepare to stand up and prevent the destruction of Christian faith now and for the children of America’s future.

Joining Kevin Fobbs, host of Standing at Freedom’s Gate, will be Mahan and Neill.  Now Available On Demand.

They will discuss whether the criminalization of Christianity is the new reality in America, how it may impact every place of worship in America and what Christians need to do to defend and protect their civil rights. Join the call to action for American Christian Civil Rights on the next Standing at Freedom’s Gate podcast.
