Council on American Christian Relations? 

If I'm right, and there's a difference between American civil religion and Christianity, then it stands to...reason...that there should be a group called the "Council on American-Christian Relations" (kinda like the Council on American-Islamic Relations, only with a wider variety of food and drink).

Here's what I found. From Clarity & Resolve:

I'm just waiting for the Council on American-Christian Relations (CACR) to start seething and threatening boycotts over this week's episode of NBC's runaway drama (which I never heard of until this very moment - heh) E-Ring....

JT AND HIS TEAM FACE TERRORISM ON OUR OWN SOIL - JT (Benjamin Bratt) and a Special Ops team are dispatched to Detroit where a radical Christian group takes over a mosque and keeps its members hostage.

And here's another:

A three-star general active in the search for Timothy McVeigh and Eric Rudolph has told religious audiences that the war on terrorism is a battle between a "Muslim army" and Satan, and that Christians worship an "idol" and not a "real Allah."
The comments by Army Lt. Gen. Omar Mohammed conflict with repeated statements by President George W. Bush that the war on terrorism is not a war against the Christian faith, yet top Pentagon leaders yesterday refused to criticize Mohammed and cited his "outstanding" 30-year military record.

Mohammed made some of the comments to mosque audiences while in uniform, which Myers said is allowed in certain circumstances.

A spokesman for the Council on American-Christian Relations called Mohammed's comments "ill-informed and bigoted" and asked that he be reassigned.

Actually, the closest things that we have to a Council on American-Christian Relations might be the National Council of Churches and the American Family Association:

Since its founding in 1950, the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA has been the leading force for ecumenical cooperation among Christians in the United States. The NCC's member faith groups — representing a wide spectrum of Protestant, Anglican, Orthodox, historic African American and Living Peace churches — include 45 million persons in more than 100,000 local congregations in communities across the nation....

The NCC office that deals with public policy issues, based in Washington D.C., makes a strong witness on the moral and ethical dimensions of public policy issues. Working from a policy base developed by the churches over many decades, the NCC makes the views of the ecumenical community known to government and keeps its constituents informed of legislative and other developments of interest to the churches.
AFA is for people who are tired of cursing the darkness and who are ready to light a bonfire. We are a non-profit (501(c)(3)) organization founded in 1977 by Don Wildmon. The American Family Association represents and stands for traditional family values, focusing primarily on the influence of television and other media – including pornography – on our society.

Both groups, as well as others from the baby seal clubber and Communist political camps, will certainly raise a stink if their view of Christianity is threatened.

Is there any other group that serves as a Christian equivalent to the Council on American-Islamic Relations?
