.- A group of prominent Jewish leaders have banded together to fight anti-Christian prejudice in Hollywood, the news media, academia, politics and the courts.
"Jews Against Anti-Christian Defamation was organized because we understand that Christians are the last remaining obstacle to the moral deconstruction of America," said the groupâs president Don Feder at a press conference April 21.
"Christians are under assault because of the values they embrace. But the morality of Christianity is also the morality of Judaism. By maintaining their loyalty to the eternal values revealed at Sinai, Christians have become pariahs in the eyes of the establishment but heroes in our eyes," Feder said.
Jews Against Anti-Christian Defamation will engage in a broad range of activities to educate American âon the toxic nature of what has been called the last acceptable form or prejudice,â says the groupâs press release.
Group members include: syndicated columnist Mona Charen, popular talk-show host Barry Farber, Rabbi Joshua Haberman, Rabbi Yehuda Levin, David Horowitz (Center for the Study of Popular Culture), Morton Klein (Zionist Organization of America), Herb London (Hudson Institute), Bruce Herschensohn (professor, Pepperdine University), Rabbi Daniel Lapin (Toward Tradition), syndicated talk-show host Michael Medved, Rabbi Jacob Neusner (professor, Bard College) and comedian Jackie Mason.
