The Charity Give Back Group (CGBG), formerly known as the Christian Values Network, is an online service that partners with more than 170,000 charities, religious and secular, enabling users to support their favorite charities when they shop on the web. Because some of the charities embrace the traditional Christian understanding of marriage, some activist organizations have recently sought to pressure retailers not to associate with CGBG.
Rejecting diversity and tolerance, radical proponents of gay marriage declared an economic war against organizations that embrace the Judeo-Christian understanding of marriage. They began contacting retailers asking them to withdraw their association with CGBG, the online charity support group that helps to channel money to various worthwhile organizations, maintaining that some of the recipients are Christian “hate groups.” This was an outright lie.
An anti-Christian force, Change.org, funded by George Soros, was the forum for these activists. Among the groups targeted by these activists is the Family Research Council, led by Tony Perkins. Perkins is an eminently decent man and a leader in the evangelical community. If these extremists get their way, they will silence the Christian voice. Which is why the bullies must be defeated.
We issued a news release asking Catholics to let three major companies know that they need not follow the dictates of these anti-Christian forces: Netflix, Walgreens and Petco.
We contacted each of these companies and asked them not to jump into the culture war on our side; we simply asked that they remain neutral.
