In an article today for Focus on the Family, writer Catherine Snow contends that respected Christian and Jewish groups are actually “a ‘who’s who’ of Leftist, humanist, abortion and gay organizations.”

Focus warned that “liberal groups” were asking President Obama to repeal a 2002 executive order that allows Focus and similar groups to collect and abuse taxpayer dollars for the purpose of enriching favored religions and discriminating against religious and sexual minorities.

But Focus drastically shortened the coalition’s membership list: It removed most of the Christian and Jewish groups, and presented the edited result as a liberal conspiracy against Christians. To its credit, Focus offers its readers a link to the coalition‘s actual letter (PDF) to President Obama, but the link is buried in footnotes.

Here is the coalition membership list that Focus didn’t want Christians and Jews to see:
