There is an unconnected organization called Christian Voice in the UK

Christian Voice is an American conservative Christian right advocacy group. In 1980, this group had 107,000 members including 37,000 pastors from 45 denominations. [1] It is a project of the American Service Council. Christian Voice was headquartered at the Heritage Foundation in the 1970s and 1980s and is currently located in suburban Washington, D.C., in Alexandria, Virginia [2].

Christian Voice is best known as the originator and developer of the "Congressional Report Card" and the "Candidates Scorecard". It helped organized grassroots action through use of its "Church Networking Guide".



Founded by Dr. Robert Grant, Gary Jarmin and Colonel Donor in 1978.

Christian Voice was the first of the Christian Right groups, pre-dating the Christian Coalition, American Coalition for Traditional Values, Concerned Women for America, Moral Majority, Family Research Council, and other Christian political groups. Christian Voice has employed hundreds of political organizers, including Susan Hirschman, Chief of Staff to former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, Congressman Tom Hagadorn, who chaired the organization for several years, and Tim LaHaye, co-author of the Left Behind series. Many of the techniques used by current independent and 527 political campaigns were originally developed by Christian Voice.
