Christian leaders can helpdiminish anti-Semitism
The Institute for First Amendment Studies believes that, although
we may have political or theological differences, many of the Christian
leaders and groups mentioned in this report are responsible citizens
and organizations. When wrongs are pointed out, we believe these individuals
and groups will do the right thing. With this in mind, the Institute
for First Amendment Studies is calling for:
Conservative Christian leaders to denounce every form of anti-Semitism,
and refrain from using anti-Semitic stereotypes.
Conservative Christian leaders to denounce attempts to eradicate Judaism
through conversion of every last Jew.
Christian schools and home schools to cease using materials that denigrate
Jews, and to include books that talk about Jewish contributions to
Christian schools and home schools to specifically cease using McGuffey's
Mott Media and Thoburn Press, publishers of McGuffey's Readers, to
remove from the Readers all negative references to Jews before any
more books are sold.
Life Dynamics to cease publication and distribution of Bottom Feeder.
The Conservative Book Club to cease from advertising and selling McGuffey's
Readers until such time as the anti-Semitic content is removed.
Rev. Donald Wildmon to publicly disassociate himself and the American
Family Association from the Liberty Lobby, The Spotlight, and LogoPlex.
Pat Robertson to purge his Christian Coalition of any existing anti-Semitism.
Christian right leaders to stop using humanism as a vehicle to besmirch
those with whom they disagree.
Keystone Inspiration Network to drop Pastor Pete Peters' television
Pat Robertson, the Rev. Jerry Falwell, the Rev. Benny Hinn, the Rev.
James Robison, and other evangelical ministers, to pull their programs
from the Keystone Inspiration Network, until Keystone removes the
anti-Semitic Pete Peters.
