HOWARD CENTER DECRIES WEBSITE URGING CHURCH ARSON

 

9/9/2004 8:29:00 PM by Dr. Allan Carlson - Howard Center for Family

 

Dr. Allan Carlson, president of the Howard Center for Family, Religion and Society, today expressed dismay over a website that urges enemies of faith to burn down houses of worship.

 

“It’s a sad commentary on the state of the nation, when an anti-religion website openly advocates arson as a weapon against Christians and Jews,” Carlson complained.

 

The site (http://www.churcharson.com/) says church arson is “one way people get involved with activism to end abusive practices of Judeo-Christian religion.” The site, apparently based in McLean, Virginia, calls Judaism and Christianity “forms of mind control.” The author also looks forward to the day when “the executions of diehard Christians and Jews” will commence.

 

Says Carlson: “This site isn’t just advocating arson, but murder as well. It’s reminiscent of racist nightriders of the Jim Crow-era and Nazi storm-troopers burning down synagogues on Kristallnacht.”

 

“A hardcore of militant atheists is getting desperate,” Carlson commented. “Clearly, the anti-religion left is losing the public policy debate. Also, traditional faith is growing, right across the religious spectrum. This website is an infantile burst of anger motivated by rage and frustration.”

 

Carlson charged that it also reflects an anti-religion ethic promoted by the cultural elite. “With Hollywood depicting Christians as fools, hypocrites or villains - and the news media telling us that evangelicals are anti-democratic fanatics - is it any wonder that a few unstable individuals are taking all of this as a call to violence?” Carlson asked.

 

The Howard Center urges Virginia’s attorney general to investigate bringing criminal charges for incitement against http://www.churcharson.com/. It asks the Internet provider to close down the site.

 

“Religious America will not be intimidated,” Carlson pledged. “We will continue to call for a return to those values and virtues that made America great.”
