SORT BY Relevancy
We are witnessing a civil rights movement in 2015. The same things that the brothers and sisters went through,we are facing again. What will come out of this movement? Does it prove America is a racist nation? Will we ever get past race? Let's have a honest talk about a issue that divides many.
Joining Kevin Fobbs, host of Standing at Freedom’s Gate, will be Rebecca Mahan and Hallie Neill.
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.
For many Christians the criminalization of Christianity was launched 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.
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.
Will the U.S. Supreme Court Same-Sex marriage ruling criminalize Christianity and endanger pastors and Christians all over America?
Rev. Bill Owens, president of the Coalition of African-American Pastors (CAAP) is refusing to let that happen and is calling for opposition to the Supreme Court’s gay marriage ruling through active civil disobedience. Rev. Owens is stressing that Christians, “do something to get arrested to call attention to the injustice."
The request for a new Christian Civil Rights Movement has been called for by Rev. Owens and other Christian leaders and faith community because of the ongoing threats to faith leaders and and Christianity.
Of grave concern is that pastors had been the target of gay-rights activists due to their sermons concerning the Bible’s stance against gay marriage. To prevent that in Texas, Gov. Greg Abbott signed the “Pastor Protection Act" on June 25, according to the Texas Tribune.
The law allows clergy members to refuse to conduct marriages that violate their beliefs; The bill gives ministers the freedom to exercise their First Amendment rights.
Joining Standing at Freedom’s Gate host Kevin Fobbs to discuss CAAP’s civil disobedience actions against the gay marriage ruling and a new Christian civil rights movement will be Rev. Bill Owens, president of the Coalition of African-American Pastors.

As the nation finishes celebrating the 30 year old holiday of Martin Luther King Jr's birthday, the civil rights movement is on the minds of many. Some hated it and more loved it. In spite of the historical significance of the movement many can rightly argue that the condition of the black and other minority groups in this country are worse than ever. WHY IS THIS? HOW CAN THIS BE? Let's explore God's word to see if it can shed some light.

The execution style killing of 9 year old Tyshawn Lee is beyond evil. Anyone with a heart will become outraged. Black civil rights organizations are silent about this murder. They have tweeted but not marched or demand justice for Tyshawn Lee. What if Tyshawn's killer was a KKK member? We all know the response would be totally different. We want to cover this issue because the hypocrisy is something we can't tolerate for progress.
Last night I watched a documentary on PBS about Kennedy, Johnson, and the Civil Rights movement. A friend sarcastically observed that I probably think the civil rights movement was conservative and the white supremecists were on the left and that this would probably be the subject of my next book. I thought about it and, here goes!
