conference next week promises to address Christian singling out around
the world and in the media. The conference, called The War On
Christians and the Values Voter in 2006, will be held March 27-28 at
the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC.
The organizers pointed to Abdul Rahman’s trial in Afghanistan and the recent release of the anti-Christian film V for Vendetta to demonstrate the urgent need at this time for the conference.
Rahman could face a possible death penalty for converting to Christianity from Islam 16 years ago. Human rights watchers indicate that there are other similar cases of Christian persecution in the Muslim world.
V for Vendetta depicts a future Christian dictatorship in Britain that crushes dissent and persecutes other faiths. This is only one of a number of productions coming out of Hollywood that misrepresent Christianity or are outright anti-Christian.
For this reason, the conference will include a panel discussion March 28 called Hollywood: Christians Through A Distorted Lens. Panelists include Ted Baehr of MovieGuide.org, Bob Knight of Concerned Women for America and Rebecca Hagelin of the Heritage Foundation.
Other keynote speakers at the conference include Rick Scarborough, Phyllis Schlafly, Senator John Cornyn, Gary Bauer, Congressman Tom DeLay, Janet Parshall, Senator Sam Brownback, Janet Folger and Alan Keyes.
