“I think you want to be very careful when you give government the authority to favor a particular religion in an official way such as this,” Dan Quinn, communications director for the Texas Freedom Network, told FoxNews.com.
“That’s what bumper stickers are for,” Quinn said of religious decorations on vehicles. “We support religious freedom for everybody. The question is: Do you need government approval for that? We don’t want government having that authority.”
The group had previously blasted the plate as “disrespectful,” saying in a December press release on its website that “It’s become pretty clear that our governor [Rick Perry] is dismissive of religious beliefs other than his own, and now his governmental appointees have voted to send a message that Texas is unwelcoming to the religious faiths of some of its citizens.”
Our hate mail typically spikes when we’re quoted by Fox. (Go figure.) In any case, the writer of the following email apparently checked out our website, including the section on our Texas Faith Network. He doesn’t like us:
Saw your site and the proclamation of “progressive clergy”?
“Progressive clergy” is just another way to say sell out clergy.
No Christian, at least a true Christian, is tolerant or accepting of other religions.
In fact, God’s Holy Word the Bible tells Christians to flee evil ….. not to even talk of the evil that they do.
Unlike your ““progressive clergy” proclaims, we are not all the children of God and we do not serve the same god.
True Christians are the only children of God and true Christians serve the one and only true God …. God the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
Your “progressive clergy” are the false prophets that the Bible teaches us about. The purveyors of false doctrine ……. the servants of Satan and his minion.
This is a nation based upon Christians beliefs.
To God be the glory and may His judgment fall upon this nation that it, through your evil kind and your “progressive clergy” across this nation, has called upon it.
As the Bible says, the rain falls on the heads of the just and unjust …….. we, the true Christians, the born again Christians, the true children of God will bear it for His Name’s sake.
