Daniel Lapin, an Orthodox Jewish rabbi warns that Christianity in the United States may be driven underground if Christians don't stand up for their rights. He draws a haunting parallel between the anti-Christian goings on in the current media (including a long list of books on the "danger" of the "religious right", read, Christians) and the propaganda that preceded the Holocaust. Intriguingly, he points out that if the same books were so blatantly anti-Semetic, we would all, rightly, be up in arms.
He cites some books in the past that have changed the way America thinks, such as Uncle Tom's Cabin and Silent Spring. Whole ways of thought were changed by books such as these. He points out that behaviors such as smoking or drinking and driving, have been changed en masse by movments such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and past and current anti-smoking campaigns. Who are we to think that mainstream Christianity could not go a similar course?
It can happen to Christianity. In fact, it is happening. Brace yourself. Is Christianity worth standing up for? Is it worth holding on to?
