Christians are making this out to be an attack against Christianity and our
Christian Nation. They are already blaming the traditional enemies of
religion as contributing to this attack. Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson
specifically single out gays, feminists, pagans, liberals, abortionists, the
ACLU, the People for the American Way, and secular government as being
contributors to this attack.

WASHINGTON, Thursday, Sept. 13 - The Rev. Jerry Falwell said gays,
"pagans," and a host of liberal advocacy groups have made "God mad" and must
share the blame for the terrorist attacks this week that took the lives of
thousands of Americans at the World Trade Center in New York and at the
Pentagon outside Washington. Falwell made his remarks Thursday, Sept. 13,
while appearing on the religious television program The 700 Club, hosted by
the Rev. Pat Robertson. Falwell and Robertson are among the nation’s
strongest opponents of gay civil rights. "I really believe that the pagans,
and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and lesbians who are
actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for
the American Way — all of them who have tried to secularize America — I
point the finger in their face and say, ‘You helped this happen,’" Falwell
said on the program, which was broadcast nationally. "Well, I totally
concur," Robertson told Falwell, "and the problem is we have adopted their
agenda at the highest levels of our government."
