Traditional Values Coalition

This is a fundraising letter sent out by the Traditional Values Coalition (TVC). The letter is on the TheocracyWatch site to expose how the theocratic right is organizing to support President Bush's judicial nominations. Everyone who doesn't support their theocratic agenda is part of the "anti-God left." Many religious leaders, including Christians, are included in TVC's "anti-God left." The Interfaith Alliance is a clergy-led organization opposed to the intolerance of the Theocratic right. TheocracyWatch is deeply concerned by TVC's misleading and inflammatory language.

(Subject line: "Help Take Back Our Courts from the Anti-God Left")

"We need common sense judges who understand that our rights are
derived from God. Those are the kind of judges I intend to put
on the bench."
                                     --President George W. Bush

Dear Conservative,

For 40 years, the anti-God Left has been using America's courts
to impose an anti-religion, anti-family agenda on America -- an
extremist agenda that politicians (even most liberals) would
never dare vote for.

And, ultra-liberal Democrats and the ACLU are leading a well-funded,
orchestrated campaign to block the confirmation of President Bush's
pro-family federal judge nominees.

We need Conservatives like you to stand up today and help TVC turn
up the heat on Senators in all 50 states to override Senators Ted
Kennedy, Hillary Rodham Clinton, John Kerry, and their liberal
Democrat allies in the Senate . . .

. . . and insist on the immediate confirmation of President Bush's
federal judge appointments (some of which Senate Democrats managed
to block for more than two years).

Together, we can force action on President Bush's judicial appointments
if the Senate sees overwhelming public outrage over the liberal
Democrats' obstructionist tactics . . . and their ongoing efforts to
hijack the courts for their anti-God agenda.

TVC is launching an all-out assault to reach and rally 2,000,000
politically-active citizens representing all 50 states and all 435
Congressional districts.

We must tell every Senator and Congressman exactly what kind of judges
their constituents want sitting on our federal courts and the U.S.
Supreme Court interpreting the laws of our nation.

By waging an enormous grassroots mobilization, media, and direct mail
campaign designed to reach 100,000,000 voters we intend to expose
these liberal Democrats for their ACLU-style leftist ideology that made
it possible for this powerful federal court to rule the "Pledge of
Allegiance" unconstitutional.

TVC's $10 million TAKE BACK OUR COURTS Battle Plan includes:

1) Nationwide Media Blitz through TV, radio and newspapers.

TVC plans to launch a nationwide campaign to educate Americans about
how the ACLU (with help from liberal Democrat politicians) have
hijacked America's courts to impose an extremist anti-God agenda on
America. We will also urge citizens to call and write their Senators
to demand immediate confirmation of President Bush's federal court
appointments now being blocked.

2) Voter Mobilization Mailings.

Direct mail is the single most effective method of reaching voters
with the facts on how liberal Democrats over the years have packed
America's courts with radical, anti-God judges. With direct mail, we
can generate overwhelming public pressure on Congress to immediately
confirm President Bush's conservative federal judge appointments. With
our mailings we plan to let voters know which Members of Congress stand
with President Bush . . . and which Members of Congress stand with the

3) A major phone bank operation.

Our state-of-the-art phone bank can contact voters at a moment's notice
when a vote comes up in the Senate on one of President Bush's federal
judge nominations. We can phone up to 5,000 voters an hour (or 50,000
voters a day) in key states to urge voters to immediately call, fax and
e-mail the Senator to demand that he vote on the side of President Bush
and his federal judge nominee . . . and against the liberal Senate Democrats.

4) Distribute 25,000,000 Voter Guides for the 2006 elections.

We will closely track Congressional votes on key moral values issues and
judges. We aim to distribute some 25,000,000 VOTER GUIDES in the months
leading up to the 2006 Congressional elections. We want to distribute these
VOTER GUIDES through our network of more than 43,000 churches. We also plan
to distribute them to Christian and conservative voters through the mail, as
well as in shopping malls and door-to-door in neighborhoods. These VOTER
GUIDES will tell voters which Members of Congress stand with President Bush
and appointing common-sense conservative judges . . . and which Members of
Congress stand with the anti-God agenda of the ACLU.

5) A nationwide Internet and e-mail campaign.

TVC's website is becoming an increasingly important weapon for mobilizing
traditional values voters to instantly pressure Members of Congress to vote
on the side of traditional moral values and faith when a key vote takes place.
In addition, TVC's growing e-mail list of voters (now more than 800,000 e-mail
addresses) allows us to contact Christian and pro-family voters instantly
at very little cost to urge immediate political action, such as calling their
Congressman and Senators on a key vote before the Congress.


We urgently need your support to fund the $10 million Battle Plan I've
outlined above. Please try to give at least $25, $50, $100, $500, $1,000
or even more to TVC today . . .

. . . because we must move quickly to get our grassroots lobbying, media and
mail campaign in full gear and to build a massive grassroots outpouring of
outrage at how the liberal Democrats and the ACLU-Left have used the courts
over the years to erase God from American public life.

We are now at a pivotal crossroads in America's history.

Will President Bush succeed in bringing common sense to America's courts?

Or will liberals in the Senate and the ACLU succeed in blocking President
Bush's federal judges and use the courts to completely erase every last
trace of America's Christian heritage?

Your immediate action today can make the difference.

Fighting for your values in the Nation's Capital,

Reverend Louis P. Sheldon
Founder and Chairman

P.S. Take a minute today to forward this email to at least 10 of your friends
and family, we can reach millions of Americans who are angry at the Senate
Democrats for abusing Senate rules to block confirmation of President Bush's
federal judge nominations.

Remember, your immediate financial help is urgently needed to help confirm
President Bush's 120 federal judge appointments . . . and begin to undo 40
years of anti-God, anti-family rulings by radical ACLU-dominated federal courts.
