KEYNOTE SPEAKERS INCLUDE:
House Majority Leader Tom DeLay
David C. Gibbs, Esq., attorney for Terri Schiavo’s parents
Chief Justice Roy Moore
Former Ambassador Alan Keyes
For information on the other speakers, go below the flip. I have provided links to most of them, and some choice quotes.
Senator Sam Brownback
Senator Tom Coburn
Former Vatican Ambassador Ray Flynn. Flynn has the following notice posted on his front-page, “YCV is a Not-for-Profit Corporation. YCV has been granted a recognition of tax exemption under Section 501 © 4 of the Internal Revenue Code.” Anyone care to investigate?
The move follows a meeting last week among DeLay, Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), the chief deputy majority whip, and nearly two dozen conservative leaders, including David Keene, chairman of the American Conservative Union; Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council; Morton Blackwell, president of the Leadership Institute; and Edwin Feulner, president of the Heritage Foundation.
Perkins, Keene and Feulner called the meeting, according to participants.
“It was a rallying cry to our conservative community that we are under assault. We need to fight back. We’re going to have a challenging year with the judicial issue bubbling up in the senate and the impact it may have on our ability to get things done,” said Cantor, who said he described to the group how Democrats and liberal groups have waged a coordinated battle to raise doubts about DeLay’s conduct.
Mike Farris Pastor Dan, this guy is from your turf. Ever heard of him?
“One of the mistakes being made even by people on our side is the notion that we have three separate but equal branches. In fact, the Legislative is the superior branch, the Executive secondary, and the Judiciary is in third place.
We need more leaders with the courage to not only proclaim their faith, but to act on it. The murder of Terri Schiavo will be remembered as one of the darkest days in the history of these United States of America.”

“When it comes to a judiciary run amok, the other two branches of government are in a persistent vegetative state.
Terri Schiavo died today. Her fate was sealed by an adulterous mate, a homicidal judiciary and conservative politicians who could pass for eunuchs.
Whenever a judge – almost any judge, anywhere – issues an edict (however bizarre or detached from reality and the law), elected officials lose bladder control when contemplating the possibility of actually doing something about it.”- March 31st, 2005.
Tim Lee. Tim Lee is an ex-marine who lost both his legs in Vietnam. He seems like a nice guy. He is even offering a sweet deal on his website:
1 of the America Worth Dying For
1 of the Pledge shirts
OR two of the same shirt
also get 2 videos, “My Personal Testimony” with comments on the war on terrorism and then
The most powerful tape we have, “The Reunion of Two Marines.”
You also get a CD with my story on it.
Not only all these things, but also get an autographed book, “Know Peace In Troubled Times.”
The value of all the above if you bought it individually would be $85.00.
BUT, for this special, you can have it all for $50.00 (plus shipping). That’s a $35.00 savings off the regular price!
Patrick Reilly, President of the Cardinal Newman Society. The CNS was formed, ostensibly, to promote, “the renewal of Catholic identity in Catholic higher education in the United States. We are…dedicated to promoting the educational ideal espoused by John Henry Cardinal Newman and further developed by Pope John Paul II in his Apostolic Constitution Ex Corde Ecclesiae. The Society sponsors and assists conferences, lectures, debates, and publications on the true nature and value of Catholic higher education.” But they seem to do very little more than complain about the play “The Vagina Monologues”.
They also want to protect the sanctity of St. Valentine’s Day:
Although few people still know much about Saint Valentine, efforts to replace the holiday bearing his name with “V-Day”—referring to women’s genitalia and not Valentine or victory—would further obscure the life of a real person whose example demonstrated the true meaning of love and human dignity.
