Fox News commentator Todd Starnes spoke at Germantown Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee, recently, where he declared that that Christianity is under attack in America and so the fight for religious liberty will be "the civil rights issue of our generation."
"I believe there is a war on religious liberty in the United States of America," he stated. "And this war is not targeting people of the Muslim faith, it's not targeting people of the Jewish faith or the Hindu faith or the Buddhist faith. This war on religious liberty is targeting people of the Christian faith."
Starnes said that he recently watched the movie "Selma" and that it drove home for him the realization that conservative Christians today are the face of the modern day civil rights movement.
"These are not just words," Starnes proclaimed. "The civil rights movement was not about just words, it was about action. And it was also about knowing that sometimes there is pain and there is suffering for doing the right thing":
