It is important also to remember that The Florida Constitution is the supreme law of our state subordinate only to the US Constitution. We never want to put evil …

Today I have given you the choice between Life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!” Deuteronomy 30:19.
The care of human life and happiness … is the first and only legitimate object of good government. ~ Thomas Jefferson
As our Floridian Founding Fathers said in the preamble of our Constitution,
“We, the people of the State of Florida, being grateful to Almighty God for our constitutional liberty, in order to secure its benefits, …. do ordain and establish this constitution…. All natural persons, female and male alike, are equal before the law and have inalienable rights, among which are the right to enjoy and defend life…”
As Floridians, we want to restore this state to that covenant by ending abortion through a Constitutional Amendment called Personhood. This defines the pre-born, the elderly and the disabled as persons so that their lives are protected by love and by law. We are asking every church, every pastor to petition for personhood on January 22, 2012, the Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. Will you join us and help us get the word out? We have specific strategy and we need Christians to pray.

5-1-11 National Day of Prayer, Humiliation, and Fasting Before God, Covenant Tabernacle, Pastor Bryan Longworth
Our nation has been rocked with natural disasters with raging storms sweeping through Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and Tennessee, killing over 300 to date. Yet this is nothing new. Since that dreadful Roe v Wade decision and the ensuing millions upon millions of unborn babies that have been killed by “safe, legal” abortion on demand, we have seen ever increasing damage from natural disasters. From flooding in the Midwest, to earthquakes in the West and elsewhere, to wild fires, to hurricanes, to tornadoes, to ice storms, to drought. It is as if creation is groaning with birth pangs, eagerly awaiting the revealing of the sons of God (Romans 8:22). It is as if creation will not willingly put up with our futility and as if God is removing His restraining hand (Romans 8:19-21). It is as if the land were vomiting out its inhabitants as God warns in Leviticus 18 and 20.
Florida Supreme Court and 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, & 5th District Court of Appeals Judges Up for Retention
Sadly, most Floridians pay little attention to the judges up for retention which is why they normally are retained with 65 – 75% of the vote. This must stop, we need a network of attorneys statewide to be constitutional watchdogs in the courts by reporting on how the judges rule on various issues before them, and we the people need to educate ourselves and cast out the judges who view our constitution as “a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may twist and shape into any form they please.” (Jefferson) For more info and judicial recommendations for the Florida Supreme Court and 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, & 5th District Court of Appeals
