I don’t normally get into generalized right-wing opposition to Barack Obama, but this one was literally staring me in the face through the window of the restaurant were Ms. Conspiracy and I lunched today.
“LC” are the initials for the Liberty Counsel (the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization’s founder and chairman Mat Staver is an attorney), and their main holiday theme is an attempt to keep Christmas commercialized. They publish a “Naughty and Nice List” of businesses that mention “Christmas” in their advertising and on their web sites (nice) and those that don’t (naughty). It is no surprise that the Naughty bit is rather short. The Grinch is played by the ACLU.
I didn’t see any reference to the billboard on the LC site, but it has a few references to “revolution” such as this example:
Looking back on the birth of this nation, it is clear that the Great Awakening gave birth to the American Revolution. Spiritual renewal provided the foundation for the birth of liberty in the civil body politic. The sermons of pastors were literally the fuel for the American Revolution.
I believe the same can be true today. For many months, I have been praying and seeking counsel from pastors, ministry leaders, and lay leaders. In the future, I will be sharing more details about a number of new strategic initiatives we are considering.
The actual connection between the (first) Great Awakening and the American Revolution seems somewhat tenuous given the time difference, but there is a bit on this in the Wikipedia article, and some book references.
