MMFA took pay to flay those who pray

As you may have noticed, this week is Make David Brock Hide Under His Desk from the Snipers Week at TheDC. Alex Pappas & David Martosko have the latest installment:

The liberal Media Matters for America organization once accepted a $50,000 grant to monitor and attack religious news outlets, according to tax returns examined by The Daily Caller.

The grant came in 2006 from the ARCA Foundation, a 60-year-old philanthropy that funds Democratic causes. The foundation gave Media Matters the $50,000 “to support a Religious Broadcasting Project to expand the monitoring and fact checking of religious broadcasts,” according to its tax return that year.

Becca Freedman, a program associate at the ARCA Foundation, told TheDC by phone that she could not immediately provide any details about the grant because the executive director who worked there in 2006 is no longer employed by the foundation.

That former executive director, Donna Edwards, is now a Democratic member of Congress representing Maryland’s 4th District…

Jess Levin, a spokeswoman for Media Matters, did not return an email seeking comment.

Of course she didn’t. Because MMFA is okay with us arriving at our own conclusions from it. Just remember this the next time somebody tries to tell you the left isn’t at war with Christianity.
