Dear Friend of Liberty,
This may well be the largest survey of Christian opinion ever conducted. So you can be sure the results will be studied carefully by America's political leaders and will receive wide media coverage.
We will deliver a comprehensive report on the results of this survey to:
The purpose of this survey is to . . .
1) Send a clear message to our nation's leaders that America's Christians are outraged and dismayed by our government's 50-year war on the moral and religious values that built America;
2) Send a clear message to the National Republican Establishment not to abandon the social and moral issues that tens of millions of Christian and pro-family Americans care so much about; and
3) Help us identify, educate and mobilize tens of millions of Christians to send a clear message to Congress, President Obama and leaders in government that we want an immediate STOP to our government's War on Christianity, the traditional family and the moral values that made America great.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
QUESTION #1: Do you think America's Founding Fathers believed our liberties to be "unalienable" because they are granted by God or by government?
QUESTION #2: The Supreme Court in 1962 ruled that even non-denominational prayer in the public schools is unconstitutional. What is your opinion on this ruling?
QUESTION #3: The Supreme Court also ruled that it is unconstitutional to post the Ten Commandments on the wall in public schools. What is your view of this ruling?
QUESTION #4: The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled that the "Pledge of Allegiance" is unconstitutional to be said in public schools because it contains the phrase "One Nation Under God." What's your view of this ruling?
ISSUE SUMMARY: The anti-Christian Left is fighting hard to eliminate Christmas as a national holiday. FOX News Commentator Bill O'Reilly summarized the stakes in this way:
"The importance of the Christmas controversy is that it has become the centerpiece of the culture war between traditional Americans and secular progressives. Outside the war on terror, this culture war is the most important thing happening in the country today."
QUESTION #5: Do you agree or disagree with Bill O'Reilly on this?
ISSUE SUMMARY: ObamaCare regulations require Christians and pro-life Americans to pay for health insurance plans that cover abortion-inducing drugs, vasectomies and sterilizations. Legal experts say ObamaCare will also require pro-life doctors and Christian hospitals to perform abortions.
QUESTION #1: How do you feel about these ObamaCare requirements?
QUESTION #2: Why do you think President Obama insists on using the power of government to force Christians and pro-life Americans to pay for abortions and force pro-life doctors and hospitals to perform abortions (in violation of their conscience or religious beliefs)?
ISSUE SUMMARY: When he was a State Senator in Illinois, Barack Obama voted twice to prohibit doctors from administering life-saving medical care to babies accidentally born alive in a botched abortion.
QUESTION #3: What is your reaction to this?
ISSUE SUMMARY: The Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that the historic giant cross built by Veterans of Foreign Wars and located on private property in the Mojave Desert, that honors America's fallen warriors, can stay where it is and in no way violates anyone's Constitutional rights. But the Obama Justice Department sent the U.S. Park Police on to this private land in SWAT Team fashion anyway and confiscated this beautiful historic cross.
QUESTION #4: Why do you think the Obama Administration would confiscate this historic cross from private property, even though the Supreme Court ruled that the cross could stay?
QUESTION #5: The Obama Justice Department is helping the ACLU and other anti-Christian organizations complete the outlawing of religious symbols, displays and quotations from American public life. Why do you think President Obama is so determined to erase every last trace of America's Christian heritage from American public life?
ISSUE SUMMARY: Barack Obama regularly omits references to America being "One Nation Under God." During a speech in Indonesia he falsely claimed the U.S. motto was "e pluribus unum." In fact it is "In God We Trust." At least 5 times he has dropped any reference to God as "Creator" when quoting The Declaration of Independence. He failed to mention God in his Thanksgiving speech. He mocked Congress for reaffirming America's trust in God via a Congressional resolution and argued it was a waste of time. At a news conference in Turkey, which is radically muslim and anti-American, Obama declared that Americans "do not consider our country to be a Christian nation." The Obama Administration filed a U.S. Supreme Court brief urging that churches and religious schools be banned from hiring and firing ministers or teachers based on their religious beliefs.
QUESTION #6: Do you think President Obama is anti-Christian?
QUESTION #7: What do you think America's Founding Fathers (men such as George Washington and the authors of our Constitution) would think of the Obama Administration's efforts to erase every last trace of America's religious and moral heritages from American public life?
ISSUE SUMMARY: In 2010, Congress passed the so-called "Hate Crimes Bill," which President Obama then signed into law. Under this law, citing the Bible and Christian moral teachings to argue that homosexual acts are morally wrong could be considered inciting violence against homosexuals and, therefore, a "Hate Crime" -- as is now happening under similar "Hate Crime" laws in Canada, Great Britain and Sweden.
QUESTION #8: How likely do you think it is that this new Federal "Hate Crimes Law" will now be used by the Obama Justice Department to harass, intimidate and even prosecute pastors, priests, rabbis and religious leaders for teaching traditional morality?
QUESTION #9: How likely do you think it is that the Obama Justice Department will now use this so-called "Hate Crimes Law" to try to force the Boy Scouts to allow openly homosexual Scout Leaders?
ISSUE SUMMARY: Now that President Obama has won a second term as President, he has said one of his top priorities will be to push the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to enact what he calls his "Media Diversity Doctrine." Obama's idea is to deny or revoke the broadcast licenses of radio stations that he thinks doesn't have enough diversity of programming. So Christian stations would be required to have shows by Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and even atheists to keep their broadcast licenses. Stations that carry Rush Limbaugh for three hours a day could not then follow with Sean Hannity's show, but would have to carry three hours of liberal programming in order to keep their broadcast license.
QUESTION #10: Do you think the federal government should be involved in determining a radio stations political and religious program choices?
QUESTION #11: Do you think Barack Obama is honestly looking for ways to create diversity and fairness in broadcasting, as he claims? Or do you think Barack Obama and his political strategists have come up with a clever way to justify the abuse of his regulatory power to silence voices he doesn't like?
QUESTION #1: In your view, what should be the legal definition of marriage?
QUESTION #2: Do you think same-sex "gay marriage" should be recognized in the law as a valid marriage?
QUESTION #3: Do you think gay couples should be permitted to adopt children?
ISSUE SUMMARY: President Obama has been appointing hundreds of radicals to America's federal courts, people like David Hamilton -- who was a fundraiser for ACORN and a lawyer for the ACLU. Incredibly, Judge Hamilton ruled that the words "Jesus" and "Christ" could not be said in the Indiana State House, but it is okay for lawmakers to invoke the name of "Allah" in prayers opening legislative sessions. President Obama has already had two Supreme Court appointments (Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan). Now that Obama has won re-election, he might have two more Supreme Court appointments. This would tip the balance of the Court to the far Left for at least a generation.
QUESTION #1: How important do you think America's federal courts are in shaping the long-term direction of American culture?
QUESTION #2: How concerned are you about the kinds of judges President Obama is appointing to America's courts?
QUESTION #3: What kind of judges do you think a president should appoint to America's courts?
QUESTION #1: How do you rate President Obama's overall job performance as President?
QUESTION #2: How much danger do you think America is in right now as a result of the Obama Administration's escalating assault on Christianity, the marriage-based family and traditional morality?
ISSUE SUMMARY: The National Republican Establishment says that Republicans must stop talking about social and moral issues and focus on economic issues. FFC points out that when conservative positions were on the ballot in 2012 as an initiative or referendum, the conservative position always finished well ahead of the Republican candidate. It's not the conservative position that's the problem, it's weak Republican candidates. Ronald Reagan won landslide victories by being unapologetically conservative on every issue.
QUESTION #3: Do you agree more with the National Republican Establishment, which believes we must abandon conservative positions on social and moral issues if we are to win national elections? Or do you agree more with FFC -- that we win by making a clear and unapologetic case for all conservative positions, including on moral and social issues, the way Ronald Reagan did?
QUESTION #4: How would you describe your own political philosophy?
QUESTION #5: With which political party do you feel most closely aligned?
QUESTION #6: Are you currently registered to vote?
QUESTION #7: How regularly do you vote in elections?
QUESTION #8: Will you also make your best donation to help FAITH & FREEDOM COALITION mobilize tens of millions of Christians to STOP the Obama Administration's war on the religious and moral values that made America great?
