The following e-mail is a petition for support from the John
Hagee Ministries. It was sent to us by one of our supporters,
I too am a Christian, believe in God and go to church, but I do not
believe that any church should practice politics, especially when they
are Tax Exempt. If this is what they want they should run for public office.
Here is the letter and petition word for word:
THIS IS D-DAY!
When General Dwight
D. Eisenhower met on the evening of June 5th with his command staff, they
faced this historic decision: to attack Hitler the next day in bad weather
across the English Channel, or to postpone the D-Day invasion and risk
a breach in security that could cost them the war. They decided to attack!
On June 6th, the American forces stormed the beaches of Normandy and the
victory was won.
The election of President
Bush brings the Bible-believing community to D-Day! The war is not over...IT'S
ONLY THE BEGINNING. This is not the end of the struggle.
Why? As I write this
article (December 14, 2000), President-elect George W Bush is surrounded
by powerful political forces demanding that he "go slow", that he has
to become more liberal, that he should stay away from divisive issues,
that he has to "share power".
Wrong! These political
parasites are merely trying to stay in power.
Their objective is clear.
They want to "win" by convincing Mr. Bush that he "lost", that he has
a nation so hopelessly divided he has no basis to govern.
If, four years from
now, abortion remains the law of the land and Supreme Court vacancies
have been filled with more liberal judges, than our celebration is in
vain. If the Clinton Executive Orders are not repealed and our military
is not rebuilt, then this election will have amounted to exactly nothing.
If we cannot return the Ten Commandments to public schools and overturn
Roe vs Wade, the opportunity will be missed forever.
A major battlefront
for the soul of this nation is the Supreme Court. Two judges have been
talking about retiring and now the Wall Street Journal confirms that Justice
Sandra Day O'Connor wants to retire. President Bush has the opportunity
to change the course of history... but only if he rejects the liberals'
demand for "shared power."
Replacing Justice O'Connor
with a justice like Scalia would shift the Court dramatically in our direction.
But, if President Bush listens to timid counselors and sends a "centrist"
(Washington's label for a closet liberal) to avoid a fight with Hillary
Clinton in the Senate, it will be giving the victory to the enemies of
family values. With two conservative Justices added to the Supreme Court,
think about waking up one morning and reading the headline that the Supreme
Court overturned abortion 5-4... or that voluntary prayer has been returned
to public schools 5-4... or that the Ten Commandments have been returned
to public schools 5-4... or that Roe vs. Wade has been defeated 5-4.
It is within our grasp.
We must seize the day! Partners here's how we can turn the course of history!
I want you to fill out the following petition to President George W. Bush.
I want him to hear from YOU! I will personally carry your petition to
Congress to present it on national television. I encourage you to photocopy
the petition and pass it out to your friends and family who will join
us in this battle to Take America Back.
I need 12,000 new Salt
Covenant Partners to join with John Hagee Ministries to "fight the good
fight" for the soul of our nation. This is a cultural war. There will
be a winner and there will be a loser. To the winner goes the prize of
our children and grandchildren. I need your Help! This is not my fight...
this is OUR fight. I must have your financial help in this great final
push for victory.
To those of you who
are Partners, I ask that you re-commit to your pledge and that you send
a very special one time offering for this national crusade. I know some
of you are asking yourself, "Will this make a difference?" Let me assure
you I know President George Bush personally. I have eaten with him several
times in the Governor's Mansion to discuss faith-based issues. He is a
man of moral conviction and will not turn a deaf ear to the outcry of
Together we can do the
impossible. Let us not be weak, compromising, and cowardly. Let us be
what the righteous are intended to be... bold as a lion. May I hear from
you TODAY? Don't delay your response. I want to take these petitions to
Washington as soon as possible. I want the President to know of your support
and concern for the nation. Fill out the Petition!
Make your commitment
to become a Salt Covenant Partner, to renew as an existing Salt Covenant
Partner, and/or to give your special one-time offering TODAY. God bless
Pastor John Hagee
PETITION TO PRESIDENT
GEORGE W. BUSH

in the defense of: *Traditional family values * The unborn children of
America * The return of the Ten Commandments to public schools * The rebuilding
of our military forces * The appointment of Supreme Court Justices who

words God spoke to Joshua, "BE STRONG AND OF GOOD COURAGE; DO NOT BE AFRAID,
