A network of wealthy donors is funding a series of well-organized lobbying campaigns to restrict legal protections for religious freedom at the federal, state, and local level.

One donor, Tim Gill, said, “We’re going into the hardest states in the country. We’re going to punish the wicked.”
In PA, the so called Fairness Act was introduced in 2017, and 43 towns passed local ordinances that were used to target residents for their beliefs. In Philadelphia, two Christian foster care agencies are under investigation for discrimination because of their religious beliefs about the nature of the family.
Activists attacked the reputation of a Bloomsbury, PA, Christian owned bridal shop, causing it to shut down. “We will not be forced by government, local ordinances, or bullies to participate in something that goes against our faith,” they said.
Some George Soros-funded attacks are aimed at the small number of orthodox, faithful Catholic colleges and universities and focus on anonymous sources accusing faculty and some students of sexual assault. Soros is an outspoken enemy of these schools, their Judeo-Christian principles, and emphasis on modesty and chastity. “We have long known that George Soros is the single most influential donor to dissident and anti-Catholic organizations,” said William Donohue, president of the Catholic League.
“If (destruction) ever reach us it must spring up amongst us; it cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time or die by suicide. Abraham Lincoln
