May I define "selective observation?"

I just received this run-on sentence of social conservateria via e-mail:
TAMPA, Fla. - Liberty Institute and the Family Research Council, two organizations committed to protecting and advancing religious liberty rights in the U.S., have joined to release The Survey of Religious Hostility in America - a compilation of more than 600 documented incidents of hostility to religion that have occurred in the United States most of them over the last 10 years.
Followed by a helping of self-victimization seasoned with "Christian Nation" mythology:
Shackelford said: "America today would be unrecognizable to our Founders. Our First Liberty is facing a relentless onslaught from well-funded and aggressive groups and individuals who are using the courts, Congress, and the vast federal bureaucracy to suppress and limit religious freedom. This radicalized minority is driven by an anti-religious ideology that is turning the First Amendment upside down."

Perkins said: "As dark as this survey is, there is much light. The secularists' agenda only advances when those who love liberty are apathetic. Let this be a call to stand for religious liberty in the United States."
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof [of religion]; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. "
