Former Christian Coalition Leader Launches Grassroots Organization to Activate Christian Conservatives

Former Christian Coalition Leader Launches Grassroots Organization to Activate Christian Conservatives to Oppose Pres. Obama and the Anti-Christian Anti-American Director of His Leadership

MEDIA ADVISORY, July 14 /Standard Newswire/ — Bishop E.W. Jackson Sr., former spokesperson and a top leader for the Christian Coalition, has launched a new organization – – S.T.A.N.D. [Staying True to America’s National Destiny] — to unify Christians and other conservatives around social and economic issues. However, Bishop Jackson is taking a different approach. „We are mainly interested in impacting the culture,“ says the Bishop. „Political victories can be reversed, but cultural change is lasting.“

Their first major initiative is to make January „AMERICAN HISTORY MONTH“. Says Bishop Jackson, „One of the reasons we lack unity in America is that the Judeo-Christian heritage and values which our Founding Fathers bequeathed us are under attack. Our heritage is lied about, suppressed and ignored in the push toward secularism and relativism. It is being done in Universities, public schools and even by President Obama.“

STAND’s American History Month will celebrate the nobility of American history and our Founders and rebut the lie that America is born of racism, exploitation and capitalistic greed. American History Month will highlight the heroic sacrifice, bold initiative, pioneering spirit, selfless cooperation and faith in God that made America possible. STAND believes that this President is denigrating America’s contribution to the world, denying the role of Christianity in our country, and falsely claiming that Islam is a major contributor to America’s success. „What history books is the President reading?“ asks Jackson.

STAND considers Obama to be symptomatic of the ideological and anti-Christian bias in the teaching of American history. Bishop Jackson asks, „How many people know that one of our war cries during the Revolutionary War was ‚No King but Jesus‘? Precious few, and apparently not the President.“

STAND is also opposing Obama’s healthcare reform, which it calls „a veiled government takeover of healthcare.“ Bishop Jackson argues, „If the government takes over healthcare, everything will be rationed except abortion. The conscience objection will be eliminated, and abortion will increase like a plague upon the land.“ STAND wants to end abortion in America. It is also against Cap & Trade as „an insane burden“ on an already crippled economy. Its members are contacting their Senators to make their sentiments known on these issues.
