The Christian Alliance for Progress: The Movement to Reclaim Christianity

From their website: "The members of the Christian Alliance for Progress believe we have an obligation to reclaim the vocabulary of Christianity from extremists and to restore the morals and values of Christianity. We bring together progressive Christians and other Americans who share our passion and convictions. We will use the collective power of our individual members to help shape the political realities in our country and to strive to build a more just and compassionate nation."

Some quotes from the religious right included in their Jacksonville Declaration:
  • "You owe liberals nothing. They despise you because they despise your Christ."
    -- Church Leader Bob Jones, to George W. Bush after 2004 election

  • "I hope the Supreme Court will finally read the Constitution and see there's no such thing, or no mention, of separation of church and state in the Constitution." -- House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas)

  • "Our job is to reclaim America for Christ, whatever the cost. As the vice regents of God, we are to exercise godly dominion and influence…in short, over every aspect and institution of human society."
    -- Dr. D. James Kennedy, Coral Ridge Ministries

  • "…the liberal, anti-Christian dogma of the left has been repudiated…"
    -- Tony Perkins, Family Research Council

  • "I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians … the ACLU, People For the American Way … I point the finger in their face and say 'you helped this happen'."
    -- Rev. Jerry Falwell, on Pat Robertson's 700 Club discussing the WTC attacks
