    This guy may be right here but you are missing something huge from his website. He is pushing one of the scariest bills to come down the pike in a long time. The Constitution Restoration Act is attempting to strip the Supreme Court of any power to review anything regarding the seperation of Church and State.

    Accordingly, under Sec. 102 of this bill, "Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, the Supreme Court shall not have jurisdiction to review, by appeal, writ of certiorari, or otherwise, any matter to the extent that relief is sought against an element of Federal, State, or local government, or against an officer of Federal, State, or local government (whether or not acting in official personal capacity), by reason of that element's or officer's acknowledgment of God as the sovereign source of law, liberty, or government."

    This means, that the federal judiciary would be prohibited from interfering with any expression of religious faith by any elected local, state, or federal official. In other words, federal judges could not prevent the Ten Commandments from being displayed in public buildings or Nativity Scenes from appearing on court house lawns or "under God" from being recited in the Pledge of Allegiance or prayers being spoken in public schools, etc. This bill would limit the jurisdiction of the federal courts in these matters.

        This essay is more a commercial for the Constitution party than anything else. It would be good to divide the GOP but let's not act as if there is no ulterior motive in this.

          I have marched and protested against abortion clinics. I have led several pro-life rallies and even led our church to construct A Memorial To Aborted Babies. I have conducted small and large (some drawing crowds numbering in the thousands) pro-life, pro-family rallies and meetings in the Pensacola area and in many towns and cities across the state of Florida.

          Another disconcerting feature of today's Religious Right is its attempt to Christianize political entities which it supports and to demonize political entities which it opposes. This trend is especially scary.

          these two statements seem incongruous to me---is his protesting and rallying about an attempt to demonize abortion clinics and the women who have abortions or are pro choice? would not a better way to stop abortions be better sex education programs, increased utilization of condoms, etc.? is this what he teaches at his pro life/family

          I supported and defended Chief Justice Roy Moore and his fight to display a Ten Commandments monument at a pro-Ten Commandments rally in Montgomery, Alabama and even on national television.

          Therefore, no longer does the Religious Right represent conservative, Christian values. Instead, they represent their own self-serving interests at the expense of those values.

          isn't displaying ones religion on courthouse grounds self serving? or is he supporting such legislation for the benefit of other religions?
          is it a christian value to display the commandments on tv and at the courthouse, i was not aware that one of jesus christ's teachings was to shamelessly thrust your scripture on others

          On the whole, the Religious Right comports with those within the Bush administration and within the Republican Party who, in the name of "fighting terrorism," are actually terrorizing constitutional protections of our liberties.

          i could just as easily say "on the whole, chuck baldwin comports with those southern religous representatives who in the name of "fighting judicial overreach" are actually terrorizing constitutional protections of our liberties

          what is with the confederate flag on his website?
