People of Faith for Sanity
This weekend’s “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear” is fast approaching and FPL’s sister organization Faithful America has been ramping up its campaign “faux-protesting” (fake-protesting) Stephen Colbert’s fear-mongering.
Faithful America’s “Driven by Faith, Not by Fear” campaign actually goes back to the beginning of the summer. It was intended as a push back against the extremist language of pundits and groups like the Tea Party. Most prominently, Faithful America members sponsored radio ads calling on Glenn Beck to stop abusing Scripture for his divisive ends.
When comedian Stephen Colbert announced his “March to Keep Fear Alive,” Faithful America decided that matching the tone and launching a faux-protest would be a great way to draw some more attention to the campaign.
Right now they are launching a petition to put Colbert “on notice,” sending him a “Driven by Faith” bumper sticker for every 100 signatures.
They’ll also be at the rally on Saturday with “People of Faith for Sanity” signs, so keep a look out for them if you’re going.
