The firestorm continues over the comments of Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who told an interviewer last week that he believes homosexuality is immoral.

With one exception, all of the major candidates for the presidential nominations of their respective parties disputed Pace.

The sole exception to this shameful display was my friend -- and last year's recipient of Vision America's highest honor, the "Hero of the Faith" award -- Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.), who said criticism of Pace was "both unfair and unfortunate."

"We should not expect someone as qualified, accomplished and articulate as General Pace to lack personal views on important moral issues," Brownback observed. "In fact, we should expect that anyone entrusted with such great responsibility will have strong moral views." To which I would add only a fervent amen!

Another past recipient of Vision America's "Hero of the Faith" Award is once again proving that he is worthy of the honor. Our good friend former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay continues to carry the banner for faith, family and freedom. Tom's memoirs, "No Retreat, No Surrender: One American's Fight," is now available in bookstores.

In an interview with Focus On The Family's CitizenLink, Tom declares: "I am not a man who apologizes for what he believes. This is because I did not create my beliefs, I received them from the Bible, from great minds of the ages, from the experiences of nations and from the principles of American freedom."

I believe God has anointed this man for greatness. I urge readers of The Rick Scarborough Report to obtain copies of "No Retreat, No Surrender," to gird themselves for the battle ahead.

This year marks the 400th anniversary of the founding of Jamestown, the first English-speaking settlement on these shores, which preceded Plymouth Plantation by 13 years.

Unbelievably, the taxpayer-supported Jamestown 2007 organizing committee has banned the use of the word "celebration," preferring instead the neutral term "commemoration."

Mary Wade, a member of the organizing committee, explained, "You can't celebrate an invasion." Wade says that Indian tribes "were pushed back off their land, even killed. Whole tribes were annihilated."

World Congress of Families IV will take place in Warsaw, May 11-13. Poland's pro-family president, Lech Kaczynski, will give the opening address.

Held roughly every three years, World Congress of Families is an international gathering of pro-family leaders, activists, scholars and legislators. More than 3,500 are expected in Warsaw from over 70 nations. The Congress will address such crucial matters as the survival of marriage, abortion, pornography, de-population, anti-family government policies and the need to strengthen home-centered education and enterprise.

Tuesday evening, I will be debating Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, on the University of Texas campus in Austin, Texas. The debate will center on the First Amendment and the role of the clergy in politics. Please pray for me.

On July 4 of this year, Vision America will embark on its biggest challenge to date, in an effort to move 200,000 Christians to vote their values in elections all across the nation. We will be reminding Christians through our campaign - which we are calling "Seventy Weeks to Save the Nation" - that our duty is not to be pawns of a political party, but to be faithful to the Lord Jesus. We are working now to enlist 70 churches to host a "One Day Crusade to Save America" in their church. Dr. Alan Keyes and former Naval Chaplain Gordon Klingenschmidt will both participate in the Crusades along with premier soloist, Kim Noblitt.

I am looking for men and women who will stand with us in prayer and financial support as we undertake this massive effort. Details of how you can help us will be posted soon on our website. Stay tuned...
