Vol. 2  No. 12                                                                                                                               March 24, 2005

From the Desk of Pastor Rick Scarborough


Once again, judges stumble over the basic tenants of moral values ignoring the life in Terri Schiavo.  The 11 th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta has rejected the appeal by Terri Schiavo’s parents to have her feeding tube reinserted and the U.S. Supreme Court has also passed on the matter. Governor Jeb Bush and the Florida administration may be the last hope.

Now is the time to take action
Please call and email Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and the secretary of the Florida Department of Children and Families, Lucy Hadi, to thank them for their efforts on Terri's behalf and urge them to take Terri into protective custody as an abused adult.  Here’s the contact information.

Keep praying!


As the temporary chairman of the Judeo-Christian Council for Constitutional, our upcoming conference on combating judicial tyranny (Confronting The Judicial War On Faith Restoration April 7-8 in Washington, DC) could not be more timely or more necessary. It was an activist Florida judge who, in effect, passed a death sentence on Terri Schiavo.

Like the 1960s, when state courts ignored clear-cut violations of civil rights, federal intervention is necessary. The legislation that passed in the early hours of this morning will facilitate that.

House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (who was instrumental in moving the Schiavo legislation through Congress) will be a keynote speaker at Confronting The Judicial War On Faith.

David C. Gibbs of the Christian Law Association (the attorney for the Schindlers, Terri’s parents) will participate in a panel discussion – “Judges: Abortion And Other Life Issues,” along with former Vatican Ambassador Ray Flynn.

Other speakers at the Confronting The Judicial War On Faith conference include: Senator Sam Brownback, former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, Alan Keyes, Phyllis Schlafly and Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council.

The conference also will consider Ten Commandments displays and the right of Americans to publicly acknowledge God, judicial nominations, the judicial assault on marriage and remedies to judicial activism.

Moore, another keynote speaker, was removed as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court for refusing an illegal order to take down a Ten Commandments monument.

I must stress, this will be an action-oriented conference. Our purpose is to draw up a plan of action to oppose the liberal judges who are abrogating our most precious human rights – including the right to life. Out of it will come a coalition of family groups, ministries and churches dedicated to reversing the tide of the past 40 years.
