Indifferent to Discrimination Against Christians!
MIAMI, FL - Here we go again! Today, the Christian Family Coalition (CFC), Florida's premier human rights and social justice organization fighting for your rights, called on Sunshine State News blogger Ken Ward to apologize for falsely accusing the CFC of "thrashing", "slamming" and "slapping" Florida newspapers that recently attacked and ridiculed people of faith.
Eerily, Mr. Ward is irresponsibly disregarding a most disturbing problem in our state: HATE AGAINST PEOPLE OF FAITH.
Last month CFC reported how Palm Beach Post staff writer Frank Cerabino disrespectfully mocked the Christian fish symbol, comparing it with something he called the "Flying Spaghetti Monster." Then, Tampa Bay columnist John Romano, ludicrously called religious equality, or freedom to pray, supporters "bullies" for believing ALL children should have their freedom to pray protected. Romano ended his bigoted rant by telling students to keep their religious convictions and faith in the proverbial closet and out of sight at school.
As if that were not enough, on Sunday, March 4th, Miami Herald columnist Myriam Marquez wrote a hate-filled and mocking hit piece titled "What an uninspiring bunch, Lord," pretending to ask the Lord what was the point of religious equality. The hit piece was written in the form of a prayer that ridiculed the Christian faith.
The Christian Family Coalition successfully got editorial responses published in all three statewide papers, another fact Mr. Ward inexplicably chose to ignore in his blog.
However, the important question is, would any of these writers attack Jewish, Muslim or Buddhist students? Absolutely not, nor should they. Why then, do they think it's politically correct or socially acceptable to discriminate against Christian students?
Why is it that instead of holding these hateful and disrespectful columnists accountable for remarks that inflict emotional distress and psychological harm on Florida school children, educators, and parents, Mr. Ward eerily belittles the CFC and its supporters statewide for defending fairness and equality for students of all faiths?
DOES THIS MAKE ANY SENSE?
It doesn't. The truth is these columnists fuel intolerance, discrimination and hate against everyone wishing to openly express their religious faith in our schools and instead of defending Florida's students, Mr. Ward inexplicably takes sides against them.
YOU CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS, MR. WARD!
CENSORSHIP AND DISCRIMINATION ARE UN-AMERICAN.
YOU NEED TO APOLOGIZE
