Christian author and Alliance Defending Freedom ambassador Joanne Moudy has equated lawsuits against Christian business owners who refuse to do business with gay couples as a form of terrorism in a column for conservative website TownHall.com.
‘When the word “terrorism” is used today, most people equate it with Muslim extremists, radical bombings and hijacked aircraft,’ Moudy, a military veteran and author of a supernatural thriller about abortion, wrote.
‘But there’s another form of terrorism happening right here in America, and the perpetrators are out to destroy the very fiber of our Judeo-Christian heritage and US Constitution. Welcome to the bloody LGBT battlefield where everyone is fair game in a relentless, multifaceted assault on our humanity.
‘Make no mistake about the LGBT intentions [sic]. No longer content to “fit in” or simply be “accepted” by others for living an odd lifestyle, today they are out to castrate the minds and hearts of others into supporting their deviant faith – or crush those who might oppose their ranting into oblivion.’
Moudy went on to cite cases where a Christian baker, a photographer and a florist had been sued after refusing to provide goods and services to same-sex couples who were marrying because they disapproved of same-sex marriage on religious grounds – some of whom received angry phone calls and hate mail.
Moudy claimed that making Christians provide goods and services to people they disapproved of on religious grounds violated religious freedom provisions in the US Constitution.
‘If our elected officials don’t take a firm stand immediately and get actively involved to halt these non-stop assaults on our Constitutional rights, we’re doomed,’ Moudy wrote, ‘Conservatives and Republicans must raise their voices before it’s too late.’
‘The LGBT [sic] has systematically embarked on a violent war against anyone who doesn’t tow the line and jump into bed with their sexual promiscuity and deviance, and it’s refreshing to see some serious candidates step up and say, “Enough is enough.” But sadly, if more elected officials don’t defend our constitutional rights in a timely fashion, the hour of opportunity will pass and our religious freedom will evaporate before our eyes.’
The Alliance Defending Freedom, formerly known as the Alliance Defense Fund, is a conservative Christian legal group that that has been campaigning against LGBTI rights since 1994.
