Frightening Viewpoints Of Powerful "Christian" Right "Ministry" - We're Among The Few Counternarratives
Most people don't really know the extent to which The "Christian" Right's power and influence has grown exponentially over the past 40 years. It is truly frightening.
We've been monitoring them for 10 years. Here is one small example of a "ministry" with immense power:
Ralph Drollinger and Capitol Ministries has way, way too much power in DC and around the world. Read their list of viewpoints.
Among them is that "Liberal Christians aren’t really Christians, they’re simpletons," "Catholicism is one of the primary false religions in the world,” "People with government positions should not 'compromise Biblical absolutes' and should hire only other 'righteous' people," and "Christian public servants are required to support the death penalty and oppose marriage equality."
Also, "entitlement programs (like Social Security) have no biblical authority," and "God is a capitalist."

A Brief Note On Who We Are:
This is the kind of feedback we see every day:
“I thank God for this page & all the members who promote the love & acceptance of Jesus Christ. I live in a rural area of the South where Christian bigotry runs rampant. It does my heart good to come here and read encouraging & uplifting words.” -- Rebecca P., member of The Christian Left
Frankly, that’s why we started this ministry and also why we’ve kept coming back every day for close to 10 years. We knew we were not alone. We knew the voice of Christian progressives was being suppressed. Christianity Inc. had become a powerful force. They had become the religion of wealth and empire. They had forgotten about the teachings of Jesus.
It has taken thousands of person-hours to build and maintain this ministry. Our effort continues daily. We set up and maintain a website, a blog, a Twitter page, a store, an Instagram page, a Facebook page and a broadcast mailing list. During the 2012 election season we formed a super-PAC (which is now dismantled due to lack of support).
We take direct, in-person social justice action throughout the year at locations around the nation. When we do we report to the community.
We're glad you're here!
