This is Your Movement: How Christian Democrats of America is “Giving You a New Voice”
A statement on our movement, vision and future from our Director & Founder Christina Forester
Like many of you, I have been heavy in heart watching as so many Evangelical and Christian leaders stood up for Trump and a far-right GOP agenda. They have come out on social media, in churches, TV and Christian talk-radio attacking anyone who does not go along with the GOP agenda. We too at CDA have shared the outrage for the misuse of scripture and using the name of Jesus to support hate, bullying and a truly anti-Christ agenda.
You’re not the only one who is coming out as a Christian Democrat…
The good news is people are drawn to Christian Democrats of America and our Christians Against Hate/Christians Resist movement because here we give a voice and provide a source of hope. I have been hearing from people everyday for over a decade on how they feel forced to keep their political beliefs to themselves out of fear of being bullied, pushed out of their churches, and sometimes even their jobs. There are so many like you who have experienced religious “peer pressure” and have not felt safe to come out as a Christian Democrat and when they do, have experienced rejection, insults and even “excommunication.”
Many people feel just like you do…
Thousands with a reach of millions feel just like you do. Our goal is to provide that voice throughout our country through social media, podcasts, blogs, and through representation for Christian Democrats and liberals in the media.
How we are making an impact on our country together?
We have a real opportunity before us to make a major difference in our country and the world. Even moderate Republicans are becoming disillusioned and searching for a new platform. We are among those people God is using in these times to stand in the gap and we need to make our voice louder, reach more people than ever before and take bolder actions…because the forces against us all are fierce.
We are a movement that changes the perception of what a Christian voter is, what a Christian in America is, and we are already having that kind of impact…
We are ready to provide a safe haven for the millions of people who are displaced and searching (and already provide for hundreds of thousands) and every one of you is an important part of this movement and community.
We also help support and give a platform to people who share our values and are running for office, where we can make a huge impact on policies from the national to the local level.
We cannot continue to allow the Religious Right who supported Trump to be the #1 influencer of the Christian vote and the voice for Christianity in the media. You all know what an important time this is and it is certainly not a time we can back track. If you’re searching for a movement and fellowship who holds true to the Christian teachings of love, compassion and justice, becoming a member is how you can support our community.
How we need your support
We have always existed for the purpose of giving YOU a voice! We can take back the monopoly on the Christian vote from Republicans, to hold Democrats accountable to a social justice agenda that we care about as people of faith. But we can’t make any of this happen without your support.
We are not funded by any outside group, by any PAC or big donors. This is a grassroots campaign and always has been.
Our existence, growth and action is of vital importance in this country at this moment and if you agree with that statement and support our movement, and want to see the current and future initiatives outlined above happen, then I’m asking you to help us move forward. If even 7% of our dedicated followers becomes a $5, $10 or $25 monthly contributing member to helping us advance our movement, we can make this vision a reality and have an incredible cultural and political impact.
Will you stand with me as a Christian Against Hate and become an official member of CDA or give a one-time donation?
With much love to you all as we move forward together,
CDA Founder & Director
