Last week, while channel surfing in an attempt to discover something worthwhile to watch, we noticed a teaser regarding Texas Governor Rick Perry's outrageous executive order mandating preteen girls to take Gardasil - a new vaccine against a virus that causes cervical cancer.

Imagine our shock when, instead of a spoof on Governor Perry, we saw my picture on the Colbert Report, a spoof on our position on this subject and a mocking of our biblical stand that "God will not be mocked, and that whatever a man sows, he shall also reap." http://www.visionamerica.us/site/PageServer?pagename=Colbert

See Galatians 6:7-8 - http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Galations%206:7-8&version;=31

I must admit, the piece was quite funny (though at my expense).

But guess what - even the press is now taking our side on this one. http://www.washtimes.com/national/20070220-105232-4841r.htm

Governor Rick Perry is right about a lot and he has been a good governor for Texas, and a friend of life and family values, but he is wrong on this one and he is paying a significant political price for his stubbornness.

There are efforts in the Texas legislature to overturn this unfortunate executive order by the governor. We will keep you posted.

On Tuesday evening I had the distinct privilege of addressing more than 450 leading citizens of Travis and Williamson Counties, the principle counties in which Austin, Texas, is located - at the annual Reagan Day Republican Dinner. The audience included such dignitaries as Attorney General Gregg Abbott, a long time friend and supporter of Vision America, Texas supreme court justices, members of the Texas legislature, and numerous county and municipal leaders - as well as hundreds of activists and members of the Williamson County Republican Party.

My remarks were direct and to the point. Leaders in the Republican Party must provide moral clarity or the Republican Party will continue to lose the support of Values Voters.

I believe there are two things that are missing in our culture today, without which we will continue to slide toward Gomorrah as a nation - prophets and judges!

In Isaiah 3 (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Isaiah%203;&version;=31;) the scripture states that when a nation turns its back on God, He takes away the prophet and the judge.

So much of what is being proclaimed from the pulpits of America is nothing more than pop psychology - telling the people that God is love, love, love and avoiding anything that might make sinners uncomfortable.

At the same time, we have judges who have abandoned the Constitution and have become a law unto themselves - legislating from the bench and imposing their new morality on the nation.

The message met with mixed reviews, making some very uncomfortable to say the very least. But that's the message I have been called to deliver, and I will be delivering the same message to the 100 Pastors and 1000 registrants at the Restoring America Conference where I will deliver two important addresses this weekend.

Apparently its OK to dress up like Satan, demons, witches and goblins in Pennsylvania, but for goodness sake don't come to school looking like Jesus!

On October 31, 2006, Willow Hill Elementary School Principal, Dr. Patricia Whitmire, told the fourth-grade student's mother that a Jesus costume would violate the school's religion policy. Whitmire required that the young student remove his "crown of thorns" and not identify himself as Jesus.

I refuse to do nothing. That's why my first book was titled "Enough is Enough." If you share that heart, please continue to stand with us. We need thousands of partners in this work if we are going to be able to fight on the many fronts across America where there is a need for pastors to stand.

Please consider joining our growing army of Patriot Partners who contribute $1.00 per day! If you would give up just one Coke a day, and contribute that dollar to Vision America, we could do so much more.

For those who choose to join us today with a commitment to give $30.00 per month, I will send an autographed copy of my book, "Enough is Enough."

On July 4, 2007, Dr. Alan Keyes and I will launch a major effort to enlist 100,000 Values Voters, 10,000 key leaders, 5,000 Patriot Pastors and 5,000 women - who will pray for national renewal and who will vote their Christian values on election day 2008.

We are calling the project Seventy Weeks to Renew America.

Please watch our website for details. And start praying now for this effort to awaken a sleeping church before it is too late.
