The announcement of the formation of Jews Against Anti-Christian Defamation (JAACD) came at a press conference yesterday (April 21st) at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
Present were JAACD President Don Feder, and several members of the group’s Advisory Board -- syndicated columnist Mona Charen, popular talk-show host Barry Farber, Rabbi Joshua Haberman, and Rabbi Yehuda Levin.
Others involved with the group include: 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.
Jews Against Anti-Christian Defamation was formed to combat anti-Christian prejudice in Hollywood, the news media, academia, politics and the courts.
At yesterday’s press conference, JAACD President Don Feder observed, "Jews Against Anti-Christian Defamation was organized because we understand that Christians are the last remaining obstacle to the moral deconstruction of America."
Feder continued, "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."
Jews Against Anti-Christian Defamation will engage in a broad range of activities to educate our fellow citizens on the toxic nature of what has been called the last acceptable form or prejudice.
