Help Soulforce Guard The Constitution This November!
48 hours of nonstop protection outside the National Archives in Washington, D.C., November 5-7th, 2006
In this mid-term election, religious fundamentalists have waged a full scale war against the United States Constitution and the values of freedom, liberty, and the critically important separation of church and state. Well-organized and determined, they intend to create a "Christian Nation" in which every office is held by "righteous men" who attack basic civil liberties like marriage equality, adoption and foster-parenting (by LGBT parents), stem cell research, and a woman’s right to choose. Jerry Falwell, James Dobson, Pat Robertson and powerful others want an America in which their interpretation of the Bible trumps the Constitution in the governance of our great country. Soulforce needs you to help us sound the alarm, raise public awareness, and encourage fair-minded Americans to vote for equality this November.
Soulforce is organizing volunteers to symbolically "Stand Guard" outside the National Archives where the United States Constitution is kept. During the last 48 hours leading up to the election (Sunday, November 5 – Tuesday, November 7), fair-minded Americans will take turns standing vigil wearing "We the People" t-shirts and passing out materials that educate the public on the dangerous connection between Christian dogma and the resulting loss of civil liberties. Our founder and president, the Rev. Dr. Mel White, will share excerpts from his new book, Religion Gone Bad: The Hidden Dangers of the Christian Right during a press conference.
Bring your family and friends to Washington, D.C. and help Soulforce Guard the Constitution!
