In August 1989, I spoke with Dr. Pat Robertson about the need to form a new national organization to encourage Christians to participate in the process of electing government officials. A few days later, at his invitation, we met in the living room of his home in Virginia Beach, Virginia. After discussing the need to organize we analyzed the vast resources accumulated during Dr. Robertson's run for the Republican Nomination for President. We concluded the meeting with an agreement to begin the new work at once. In a matter of days we met in Atlanta, Georgia with America's top evangelical organizational leaders to secure their blessing. The Christian Coalition was born.

With state organizations still active from the campaign we were off and running. The grassroots were still vibrant. When the 1994 federal elections were held the American people, inspired by Christian leaders, "cataclysmatized" the Congress. Democrats in power for 40 years were suddenly dislodged. The Christian Coalition, by organizing concerned citizens throughout America, had played a major role in the sea-change election.

For a couple of decades the Christian Coalition has been a major player in motivating Christians to participate in local, state and federal elections. The organization, because of its effectiveness, has been ceaselessly attacked by radical leftists who see it as Enemy Number One. Secular Fundamentalists are trying a new trick. Dedicated atheists have "come out of the closet" to boldly challenge the Christian faith with the Anti-Christian Coalition WebRing. They are sounding the call for all unbelievers to join them with essays, satire, art, comic books, etc., to mount a full fledged assault on Christians and their faith.

This new effort by Secular Fundamentalist is growing evidence of a coming showdown between people of faith in Jesus Christ and those who hate Him. The burgeoning hostility of humanists rises out of a half century of young people being educated in godless high schools, colleges and universities. It is the flowering of the seeds of blatant unbelief sown in European imported education. It is endemic of the historic conflict between truth and lies; liberty and tyranny; religious freedom and despotism; the Messiah and a messianic secularization of the state; the Christian Church and a militant totalitarianism.

The struggle has been playing out for 20 centuries but never in such clear contrast afforded by an American experiment in true political freedom - a freedom born in Christian Faith and maintained by the character of its people. Secular Fundamentalists with their spirit of Situational Ethics pose the most serious threat ever to the American Republic. The present political stage is proof positive. The claim is bold, "We make the rules as we go." Healthscare is reality. There is more to come!

It is political theatre at its tragic best.
