Rev. Pat Robertson, Rev. Jerry Falwell, Rev. James Kennedy and their followers have one thing in common. They want to help the Christian Coalition remake the United States of America into a Christian Theocracy. What’s that? It would be a Taliban like society where the nation’s courts (including the Supreme Court), state legislatures, schools, Congress, and the White House would be overwhelmingly populated by men who subscribe to the theories of the Christian Coalition.

What would America be like under such rule? Gays and Lesbians would be driven underground or forced into “treatment” for their “illness” by commandment spouting judges like Justice Antonin Scalia who would overturn the Texas Sodomy decision. Capitol punishment would be routine and speedy, leaving St. Peter to sort out any mistakes at the gate. Women would have little say over their bodies as Roe v. Wade would be overturned. In fact, women would have little to no say in government whatsoever, as they would be forced into a submissive role under the headship of their husbands. The Bible would become the immutable authority on everything from zoning laws to foreign policy.

Not since McCarthyism and George Wallace have American Civil Liberties been under such an attack. In 1992, Republicans took control of both houses of Congress. In 2000, they took over the Oval Office. Pat Robertson, founder of the Christian Coalition, has said, “We have enough votes to run the country. We are going to take over.

It's time to get Jesus into the judicial mix,” Mathew Staver of Liberty Council says. “Now we're working to establish Liberty University School of Law, which will open its doors in August 2004. We are going to teach lawyers to think in a biblical, Christian world view. They will indeed expand this area of litigation. Those students will in turn one day become instructors at other law schools, and, most important, they'll become judges,” he promises.

But the question begs, is this really what Christ would have his people do? If Jesus had wanted a Theocracy in this world, it would have been very easy for him to have established one when he was alive in Israel. In fact, the Bible tells us that the Jews on many occasions tried to make him King. But Jesus refused saying, “My kingdom is not of this world.”

Do you think that Jesus would want tax breaks for the rich when he told the rich of his day to, “sell everything you own, give it to the poor, and follow me,”? The Christian Coalition wants to rule over others, but Jesus said, “I will tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” These “Christians” will tell you that the idea of separation between Church and State is a lie, yet Jesus said, “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s.”

Are people who say things like, “Many of the people who supported Adolph Hitler were Satanists, many of them were homosexuals. The two things seem to go together,” speaking as Jesus would have spoken? Jesus not only said, “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.” He also said, “For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

The Federalist Society, part and parcil to the Christian Coalition, was formed twenty years ago in reaction to the powers the Supreme Court was granting the federal government. It is a network of lawyers, elected officials and scholars who want to free corporations from government regulations. It is hostile to civil rights, environmental protections, worker safety laws, a separation between church and state and more.

Some prominent leaders of the Religious Right play a dominant role in the Federalist Society. For example former President of the Christian Coalition, Donald Hodel is a board member. Twenty four of President Bush's top cabinet members and most of his court nominations are members of the Federalist Society. The list includes John Ashcroft, Attorney General; Spencer Abraham, Secretary of Energy; Gail Norton, Secretary of the Interior; and Theodore Olson, Solicitor General. Other notable members are Justices Scalia and Thomas, Orrin Hatch, and Kenneth Starr.

Do not be misled. Unless we Americans react and react swiftly, these people will obtain their goal and America will be changed forever. The Federalist Society and The Christian Coalition do not represent God. They are not Christians. They preach fear and hate in order to gain what they want.

I have known few homosexuals who did not practice their tendencies. Such people are sinning against God and will lead to the ultimate destruction of the family and our nation. I am unalterably opposed to such things, and will do everything I can to restrict the freedom of these people to spread their contagious infection to the youth of our nation.”
-Pat Robertson

Homosexuality is Satan’s diabolical attack upon the family that will not only have a corrupting influence upon our next generation, but it will also bring down the wrath of God upon America.”
-Jerry Falwell

There ought to be limits to freedom.”
- George W. Bush

The apostle John wrote, “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear…If anyone says, ‘I love God,’ yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen.” Clearly, by anyone’s reading of that scripture, these so called Christians do not love God because they obviously do not love their brother.

Hold men such as Senator Bill Frist, TN; Mitch McConnell, KY; Rick Santorum, PA; Bob Bennett, UT; Kay Bailey Hutchinson, TX; Jon Kyle, AZ; and George Allen, VA, accountable for their votes. Each one of them has a 100% score from the Christian Coalition, which means they voted with the Coalition’s agenda every single time. We need to take back America from these unchristian, un-American individuals. Vote in 2004 and 2006 against these preachers of fear.
