From the Desk of Pastor Rick Scarborough


First, I want to express my sadness at the death of Terri Schiavo and offer my heartfelt condolences to the Schindler family.

Terri Schiavo’s suffering is over, God rest her soul. Now our mission is to ensure that there will be no more Terri Schiavos -- that no other disabled person is subjected to her cruel fate.

The Schiavo case demonstrates the mortal danger of giving judges the unbridled power of life and death!

In just one week, the Judeo-Christian Council for Constitutional Restoration's first conference – Confronting The Judicial War On Faith – will convene at the Washington Marriott in Washington, DC. Confronting The Judicial War On Faith will address the rising tide of judicial despotism, of which the Schiavo case is the latest and most poignant example.

Keynote speakers will include House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, who was instrumental in moving the Schiavo legislation through Congress, and David C. Gibbs, Esq. of the Christian Law Association, who represented Terri’s parents in their valiant efforts to save her life.

Other speakers at the Confronting The Judicial War On Faith conference (April 7-8) include: Senator Sam Brownback, former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, Alan Keyes, former Vatican Ambassador Ray Flynn, Rep. Steve Chabot, Rep. Todd Akin, 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 tyranny.

This will be an action-oriented conference. The purpose is to draw up a plan of action to oppose the liberal judges who have abrogated our most precious human rights – including Terri Schiavo’s right to life. Out of it will come a coalition of family groups, ministries and churches dedicated to restoring constitutional rights and liberty.

As these judges continue to attempt to hold singular power over the moral and ethical direction of our nation, we will show them that the people are aware of their actions and will no longer stand for it. I hope that you will join us for this conference and help us to stand together against this rising storm.
