A RESISTANCE FIGHTER WRITES IN
Subj: Ashcroft speech
Date: 03/05/2001 7:13:23 PM Pacific Standard Time
I was channel surfing on Sunday morning 3/4/01 when I saw John Ashcroft speaking to a church congregation. It was the Coral Ridge Church. The minister's name is James Kennedy I think. He is a very well known conservative Christian leader. The thing that caught my attention was that Ashcroft said that he starts every work day with a prayer meeting for "those employees who want to attend." Talk about a violation of church and state. The Attorney General of the U.S. conducting prayer meetings in his office in a federal building.
I wonder if you put this on your web site maybe someone could get a copy of the tape and it could be distributed on the web. Maybe we could get one of the employees who attend these prayer meetings to tell what goes on during the meeting.
It would be a really great thing to catch John Ashcroft doing something that is illegal.

Dear Dr. Kennedy:
A friend in Christ spoke to me earlier today about an appearance by Attorney General John Ashcroft on one of your television programs. He was quite excited about having seen it, but I missed the event, and as I am a satellite-dish owner, I am unable to watch the program on local television affiliates.THEIR REPLY
I searched your sites diligently, but was unable to find any information. How can I find out more about Attorney General Ashcroft's appearance? Would I be able to view the program online? Please let me know.

God Bless You.ABOUT THIS ORGANIZATION, ITS BRANCHES
GOALS OF THIS GROUP:
Reforming the Culture: Protecting religious liberty and America's Christian heritage by encouraging the application of biblical principles to all spheres of our culture and to all of life.
CLAIMS OF THIS GROUP"
Liberty Relies on Faith: Noah Webster, one of our Founding Fathers as well as a leading public educator, spoke out strongly for Christian faith as a foundation of our public life:
"... The Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government, ought to be instructed.... No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people. The opinion that human reason, left without the constant control of divine laws and commands, will preserve a just administration, secure freedom and other rights, restrain men from violations of laws and constitutions, and give duration to a popular government, is as chimerical [unlikely] as the most extravagant ideas that enter the head of a maniac."
MISSION OF THIS GROUP
It's Time to Take This Land: For years we've fought an uphill battle to hold back the rising tide of ungodliness and immorality. But now a door of opportunity has opened. If God's people will stand and get involved, I am convinced we can do the impossible . . . THIS GROUP IS COMING TO NEWPORT BEACH, CA
We can restore faith to our schools, re-establish the honor and integrity of the traditional family, reverse Roe v. Wade, and renew our nation's moral and spiritual heritage.
I WILL PROTEST THIS GROUP AND THEIR AGENDA,
BUT I WILL PROBABLY BE THE ONLY ONE. WHY?
