We live in a time where an atheist group is suing to remove the Ground Zero Cross from the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, while at the same time an Islamic group is trying to build a mosque at Ground Zero.
Think about that for a moment. The two steel beams intersecting in the form of a cross that brought comfort to so many following 9/11 must go, but we must erect an Islamic mosque at Ground Zero on sacred ground where wreckage from the terrorists’ hijacked planes crashed.
The ACLJ is taking a stand for what is right and fighting back aggressively in court to defend the Ground Zero Cross and to stop the construction of the Islamic mosque at Ground Zero. But we need your help.
We are just days away from our Matching Challenge deadline on August 31st, and we are still well short of our $750,000 goal. Please take this unique opportunity to double your impact with a tax-deductible donation today, and it will be match, dollar-for-dollar. We must reach our goal in order to take full advantage of this tremendous opportunity to provide the resources we need to continue this fight.
We believe that in this upside-down world – where some want to tear down a 9/11 cross, but erect an Islamic mosque at Ground Zero – one of the strongest weapons we have to combat this is information. That’s why we began ACLJ Films, to keep you informed about critical issues facing us today.
We have created a brand new documentary, Forever Changed: 9/11 in Remembrance, a powerful reminder of the tragedy of 9/11 told by the people who experienced it first hand – Former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, the nation’s top law enforcement officer on 9/11; Tim Brown, a former New York City firefighter and first responder who lost nearly 100 of his closest friends and co-workers; and many others whose lives were forever changed on that fateful day.
We need your help to defray the costs so that we can distribute this timely film as widely as possible; and to show our thanks, you will be one of the first to receive this powerful documentary. Your gift of $35 or more will not only help us defray the costs of producing and distributing this film, but it will be doubled through our Matching Challenge.
With the 10th anniversary of this horrific event just days away, it is our desire that the true story of 9/11 be told, so that we may never forget the impact of that day, and never let the passing of time distort our view of history. There is another important story that we must remember this week.
As the new Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial is unveiled in Washington, D.C., this week let’s remember the impact Dr. King had on conservative Christians. Dr. King spent his entire life fighting for civil rights – human rights – and when necessary used non-violent civil disobedience in the face of grave injustice.
I encourage you to read “MLK’s Impact on Conservative Christians,” an article I co-wrote with Jordan for the Washington Post about the impact Dr. King had on the conservative Christian movement. As the ACLJ battles religious persecution around the world on a daily basis and defends the rights of pro-life advocates who boldly stand up against the senseless destruction of human life caused by abortion, it is critical that we keep in mind the impact that Dr. King has had – even to this day.
Please read this article and register in order to post your comments on the Washington Post website. Please add to this important discussion about what Dr. King’s vision and leadership means to you today. Also, please take a moment to forward this email and share this article on Facebook by using the “Like” buttons in this email.
Thank you for supporting the ACLJ as we continue to stand up for what is right.
