Conservatives Send Letter to Congressman over ‘Anti-Religious’ Statements

Conservative leaders have sent a letter to Congressman Robert E. Andes (D-NJ, 1st District), asking for an apology due to “an apparent effort to silence religious liberty concerns,” Michael Gryboski reports for The Christian Post. The dispute arose after a September 12th subcommittee hearing on the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), in which Andes labeled the proceedings “premature and counterproductive.” William J. Murray, chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition and one of the signatories of the letter, claimed, “…it appears that anyone can use just about any reference or phrase that may be insulting to Christians or even anti-Semitic with no concern for a rebuke from either our government or the media. I signed this letter to Andrews because it is time those who offend Christians are notified of it.”
