Skip to comments.ADL's Foxman warns of efforts to 'Christianize America'

The ADL, considered the largest Jewish organization in America, has in the past spearheaded campaigns against religious preachers and Christian elements deemed unusually extreme. But this is the first all-out media assault by an ADL head on the U.S. Christian establishment.
He noted that churches and organizations of this sort have always been active in America, but they had never before been so aggressive and determined. "They intend to Christianize all aspects of American life, from the halls of government to the libraries, to the movies, to recording studios, to the playing fields and locker rooms of professional, collegiate and amateur sports; from the military to SpongeBob SquarePants," Foxman charged. "No effort is made to hide their goals or their ambitions, and their vision of America is far different from ours."

More fundraising from a guy who makes $400K+ a year for not doing a whole hell of a lot....
Even the ADL should have the common sense to understand that morality is an important aspect of Christian teachings. I would think he would understand the need for that, seeing what immorality had done to his people in centuries past.
He's stupid. He's a puppet of the atheist left.
When brains were given out he must have thought they were giving out trains. He has no brains.
Mr. Foxman has one great deal less to be worried about from Christians than certain Islamic types who seem rather focused on his personal, national and theological extinction. Know your enemy.
Sorry, not so "interesting".
JDL = Professional victim-mentality enablers
Foxman is a secular idiot, not even aware that ALL of the heroes in The Passion were Jewish.
Another lie by the ADL.
The ACLU and ADL Foxman make a nice team.
All it takes is money, media power, a few legislators who can use the ca$h and a hatred of .... something .... anything....to get the ball rolling.
Sorry Abe, you're centuries too late.
America was 'Christianized' a very long time ago.
That's why she's always been so great.
As has every nation whose God was the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Too bad for you that you've willfully blocked that out of your socialist memory...
As a Jew, I am embarrassed by this statement. There is real antisemitism actually exists and should be identified and opposed. But the charge of "Christianizing" America, even if it exists to some degree, is not a threat to Jews. I run into people who try to convert me all the time. Not only do they fail, I always feel a renewed strength of my personal faith when they fail. The threat to Jews is not an increase of religiosity, it is the increase of secularism. The more our government respects the rights of religious people, the more rights Jews will have. A rising tide lifts all boats.
I'd like to warn everyone here of the dangerous efforts to Jewize America. They want to control the media, the government and the schools. Oops, that kinda sounded like hate speech, didn't it?.
You bet your ass it did. It wasn't funny either.
Aren't Jews considered Christian?
In Foxman's defense, he did say, a few years ago, that it isn't wise to play the anti-semitism card any time something/someone Jewish is critiqued/analyzed/discussed/etc. I was a bit surprised at the time he said it.
You would think the Jews would be more worried about the "Islamitization of America" that seems to be the REAL underlying problem!
Yeah, Christians are the problem. Keep focused on that Mr. Foxman while the Saudis build another mosque next door for preaching hate.
As a Jew I too am embarassed and incenced by Mr Foxman's statements. I have contacted my local ADL office to register my displeasure and let them know that, as a result of their left-leaning political positioning, they shouldn't bother to contact me this year requesting a donation.
My reasons are exactly the same as they were last year. Until they confine themselves to their stated goals, rather than Democratic political posturing, as far as this Jew is concerned, they do not exist.
