Bible with American flagToday is National Religious Freedom Day and a group of Christian leaders is using the occasion to launch a five-month initiative to Keep Faith in America. 

The effort kicks off at noon eastern today with an eight-hour Facebook Live broadcast and runs through the National Day of Prayer in May. Earlier today, President Trump issued an official proclamation designating the day as "Religious Freedom Day."

David Barton of Wallbuilders says the effort will come "from every direction" over the next few months with help from legislators, pastors, colleges campuses, and school boards, city councils, and businesses.

With faith being trashed regularly on TV, such as sitcoms, Barton says the Christian faith fares little better on college campuses, in many city governments, and in our courts. So he and a few other faith leaders want to remind Christians that their faith is something to be proud of and that they're not alone.

"We've got something here that a lot of people stand for," he says, "and because we've not been standing up, we really kind of think that we're not the strength that we used to be. But we really are."

You can watch today's live broadcast at the Keep Facebook page for Keep Faith in America or at KeepFaithInAmerica.com.
