Hi Guys, Citizen Journalists.... we need your expertise here.... tonight in Vegas.

This is your mission should you choose to accept it.

Tonight:
Gingrich to appear at dominionist prayer meeting in Vegas tonight as reported by our own Christian Dem in NC.

If there was any doubt that Newt Gingrich has become the candidate of choice for the New Apostolic Reformation, it's about to be erased tonight in Las Vegas at 7:30 pm Pacific Time.  People for the American Way reports that Gingrich is slated to appear at a "Pray for America" rally sponsored by New Apostolic Reformation "prophetess" Cindy Jacobs.  For those who don't remember, Jacobs is the same yayhoo who claimed birds fell dead after the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.  She's currently spearheading a prayer campaign called "Fast Forward," whose goal is to "shift this nation" hard right.

This group is one of the Religious Reich groups that want to turn the country into a theocracy.  Seriously.  They want to control people's personal lives according to their Gospel of Hate agenda; you know, no birth control, no gays, etc. etc..  You get the picture.

So, this is the mission.

Since the meeting is taking place tonight, it would be a great thing if we could get a record/transcript/vid of what is going to be said, so that it can be brought to the light of day.  It would be very interesting to find out what kind of hard right push these folks are trying to gain by supporting Newt.  It would be excellent to tie Newt and his candidacy to the theocratic plans for takeover of our country.  That would serve a dual purpose; expose Newt and expose the Radical Reich for who they really are and what they really want to do to this country.

Most people don't really know how serious these guys are about turning our country into a theocracy....

The details are:

Prayer Gathering
On Friday, February 3, 2012, 7pm – 8:30pm, there will be a Pray for America prayer meeting at International Church of Las Vegas (ICLV) hosted by Pastor Paul Goulet.  Many local leaders and media are expected to be attending.  Also, Newt Gingrich has confirmed his attendance at the prayer meeting.

I cannot tell you whether this is going to be covered by main stream media, but it would be great to get some of our citizen journalists covering this for us.

OK.  A little while ago, I found out that our guy Newt has been courting the Religious Reich for several years now, no doubt laying the foundation for his 'comeback.'  It is truly chilling stuff.  If you want to learn more about Newt and the Religious Reich, read this for background on this unholy alliance:

Newt's Long Behind the Scenes Campaign with the Religious Right

In Christian Dem in NC's diary, referenced above, he explains the extremist views of this group, and if you haven't acquainted yourself with their Seven Mountains Theology, tonight's the night to do it.

It will curl your hair.  (Look at the bright side, that will take care of one grooming task! That is if you like curled hair.)

Ok, if someone is willing and able to do this and report back, it would bring to light what these groups have tried to keep hidden, flying under the radar, and alerting their base with the usual dog whistle calls.

On the heels of what happened to the Susan D. Komen Foundation, we do not want to underestimate the power of exposing what the Radical Reich is doing.  Once the facts were out about the Komen Foundation, the 'you know what' hit the fan.  People don't like this stuff.  So, this is what needs to happen with these theocrats. They need to be brought to the light of day and exposed and the public really needs to hear and understand the grim way they want this country to run.

Thanks for thinking about this.  And if you or someone you know can do this and report back to us, you will be more than providing a public service.

Good Luck.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
