Today, Matt Barber, former Associate Dean of Liberty University School of Law and former VP of Liberty Counsel Action, announced the launch of a new, principled and aggressive Christian legal/public policy organization to fight for civil rights; Christian Civil Rights Watch (CCRW).
At a time in history when religious freedom seems pushed to the sidelines and abused, this news is certainly encouraging! The Christian Civil Rights Watch joins the ranks of strong legal groups who fight selflessly for our liberty.
Christian Civil Rights Watch is a group of Christian legal watchmen who educate, communicate and, where necessary, litigate. CCRW will proactively fight to restore justice for faithful Bible believers’ Constitutionally protected civil rights. The organization aims to fulfill the mandate of God’s word to leave a legacy of religious free exercise for current and future generations of Christ followers.
Barber, who is CCRW’s Co-Founder and General Counsel, said, “It’s time to go on the offense! It’s time to fight for true civil rights. The battle lines are drawn. Restoring Christian civil rights is the civil rights struggle of our time. Cultural Marxists, church-state separatists, ‘progressive’ anti-Christian religious segregationists and ‘LGBT’ sexual anarchists now openly attack our liberty. Who watches them?” asked Barber.
“To fully advance the causes of radical feminism, abortion-on-demand, unfettered sexual license, ‘gay marriage’ and the like, the pagan left must do away with religious free exercise and Christian civil rights altogether,” continued Barber. “Under the guise of ‘anti-discrimination,’ Christians today face discrimination at unprecedented levels. CCRW intends to reverse this growing trend,” concluded Barber.
CCRW Co-founder Gordon Klingenschmitt, PhD is a former Navy Chaplain who served in the Colorado legislature, and took a stand defending the right to pray “in Jesus’ name.” He says, “I’m so proud of my friend Matt Barber for standing up this new watchdog legal organization, and glad my non-profit Pray In Jesus’ Name can be a partner in its initial foundation. CCRW will go on the offense for religious liberty in court, we’re already suing anti-Christians in two states, and taking on domestic enemies of the Constitution. Matt will prove in court that Christians have civil rights too.”
