Operation Save America was Highly Commended in the 2015 Millenium Awards. The award citation read:
I spend far too much time on social media, Twittering and Facebooking all day when I should be doing other things. I don't even have enough time left over for YouTubing or Instagramming, let alone seeking romance with Tinder or Ashley Madison. As an atheist, however, I am intrigued that the Bible addressed this very issue. As it says on this site:
Social media can be a powerful platform for global evangelism. It is a venue, which can glorify God, edify the saints, and convict the lost. However, there are certain personal, church, and ministry communications that should not be shared on social media. It is not the best venue for these important exchanges. Much of what is published on social media would be better handled in a private setting. Social media has helped to blur the lines between appropriate public and private interactions.
The Holy Scriptures, on the other hand, bring light and clarity. They are sufficient for all of life, faith, and practice. It is there we discover Godís standards for communication. The time has come for Christians to reconsider their interactions through social media. With full assurance in the sufficiency of Scripture, Operation Save America challenges Christians to serious self-examination concerning our conduct by means of Facebook and other social media sites (Psalm 26:2; Galatians 6:4).
There is much on this site to cause reflection on how we behave. I'm not an American, but it is in my interest for America to be saved from whatever threatens its continued existence. If it goes where will Australian TV programming, cinema features or recorded music come from? I know we could always make our own, but where's the fun in that? You might think that recognising the dangers of social media is just a small step, but we have to start somewhere. I could quote Mao Tse Tung but he wasn't a Christian and was an enemy of America so it probably would be out of place here.
Oh, and Operation Save America is very big on protecting unborn children from the abortion holocaust. Maybe they should gather outside abortion clinics and take photos to display on Instagram and Facebook. Oh, wait ...
