Nice concept, but I'm not sure about the "atrocities committed in our name" statement.

I wish more people felt this way...but I'm sure there will be many that don't, feel that we shouldn't offer any apology, that this shows we're weak, etc.

I signed the petition. I agree with the intent of the organization, which is simply to represent ordinary Americans of faith, in abhoring the immoral and cruel acts committed by some bad people.

They need to amend the commercial to say they will work hard to remove the Bush Administration from power because he condoned and allowed this criminal behaviour.

Right-wing domination of Christianity has gone too extreme; it was only a matter of time before the pendulum would start swinging in the opposite direction. I believe that, while right-wing Christians still scream the loudest, the pendulum has now just started to swing the other direction. It will probably be a few years before it swings completely.

I guess it depends on where you stand. With denominations backing away from the inherency of Scripture or even the divinity of Christ over the years, I've thought the pendulum was already to the left.

Well i think it is a good idea but it wouldn't be neccessary if the government would do a better job.

Morality will never be the Job of government and it's a damn good thing too. This is a good initiative because it gets a peaceful and constructive message out there and it is in no way affiliated with the US government.

It is interesting that Melon notes a shift from the right to the left in Christianity because down here we have pretty much left wing church related organizations and members taking an active role on political issues such as Refugees, War and Public Morality. It is generally seen as a response to conservative government, I guess that it is a good example of a working secular society - The Church will oppose the State wherever possible.

In my neck of the woods the pendulum is always to the right. It's only with national issues that I ever get a chance to express a liberal faith-based opinion.
