Quote# 88361

We’re pleased to announce that we’re changing our ministry name from Alliance Defense Fund to Alliance Defending Freedom. Our new name will better communicate what you already know we do . . . build alliances between Christian attorneys and like-minded organizations to accomplish what none of us can do alone: protect and defend YOUR religious freedom. Changing our name to Alliance Defending Freedom rightly reflects our enduring mission to gain justice for those whose faith has been unconstitutionally denied in the areas of religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family.

Alliance Defending Freedom, Joe. My. God. 46 Comments [7/16/2012 3:22:52 AM]

I didn't find the quote overly fundie, so I clicked for context: if anyone needs to know, they're an anti-gay organisation. That's why that statement is so outrageous.

7/16/2012 4:05:43 AM



Their anti-gay stance is bad, but these guys aren't even for religeous freedom. They're christian supremists pure and simple.

So, you're an organization that does nothing but waste time and money, because you aren't denied any religious liberties or freedoms.

7/16/2012 4:46:48 AM


No, your organization is in place to DENY religious freedom to the many liberal Christian congregations in America that have no problem performing gay marriages.

Another group to whom "religious freedom" means "I can do whatever the hell I want".

I keep forgetting that to deny a zeolot the right to force others to comply with his religious views is to deny said zealot his freedom. I must make a note of that.

7/16/2012 5:55:11 AM


So what's their motto? "We're defending your freedom to take away other's freedoms"?

7/16/2012 6:05:32 AM


Defending freedom to persecute.

In other words, we will defend the rights of the poor, persecuted christo-fascists, as long as they are the right flavor,of course. Everybody else can just go bugger off.

Doubting Thomas

Is the name change because you're having a really hard time getting people to donate to a fund which fights for the right of Christians to persecute others?

Your idea of religious freedom comes straight out of Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Defending freedom in an alternate dimension where freedom means persecution.

7/16/2012 6:25:36 AM

Mister Spak

Will your christian attorneys defend the freedom of religion of muslims?

7/16/2012 6:29:34 AM


I'm all for defending religious freedom, which also includes MY freedom FROM your religion.

7/16/2012 6:30:51 AM


Poor persecuted Christians! What are you down to now, like 75% of the population of the United States? It's an absolute travesty that you don't have 100% of the US population...no, make that 100% of the world's population in your religion. It's like they don't even care about your freedom of (imposing your) religion at all!

This just in: We're changing the name of our product from "sack of shit" to "satchel of fertilizer". You can change the terminology, but the contents remain the same.

Anyway, it's good to see someone standing up for the poor, oppressed white Christian majority in America. So rare, these days.

7/16/2012 7:12:27 AM


So what you're saying is that you're an organization that is, from its very outset, completely without worth or use.

Thing is, the Constitution already protects your religious freedoms. You're just pissed off because it also defends the religious freedoms of people who don't share your religion, and those whom your religion demonizes.

7/16/2012 7:41:17 AM


Nice, let's add freedom to the word fundietard and somehow that changes the whole mission.

Giving this one the Orwell award would be doubleplusgood.

7/16/2012 8:23:23 AM


Nope, it's still a shit name. how about the Judean People's Front?

7/16/2012 8:51:08 AM

The freedom to limit the freedom of others.

And you see no hint of hypocrisy in this.

For shame.

How is someone ELSE getting married impeding on YOUR religious freedom? Worry about your OWN relationships, not others you nosey ne'er-do-wells.

7/16/2012 9:27:36 AM


Well at least they don't have to get new monogrammed towels.
