And An All-Star List of Christian Leaders
At Major Culture War Summit In Coshocton, Ohio
(JHReport) Some are billing it as one of the greatest gatherings of top American Christian Conservative leaders in recent years. Nationally recognized radio talk show host Coach Dave Daubenmire is calling it the finest event to ever come to the state of Ohio. A "Gathering of Eagles" Leadership Summit, scheduled for December 14-15, 2007, will bring together many of America's most experienced Christian Conservative leaders for the two day conference in Coshocton, Ohio. The goal of the conference: to ignite a spiritual fire that will awaken Christians throughout America.
The keynote speaker for the event will be 2008 Republican Presidential candidate Alan Keyes. As the two-time Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate in Maryland, Alan Keyes challenged liberal Democrats Paul Sarbanes (1988) and Barbara Mikulski (1992). In the 1996 and 2000 Republican presidential campaigns, Alan Keyes eloquently elevated the national political debate as a candidate for president. With his unequivocal pro-life, pro-family message, he forced the GOP leadership to address America's moral crisis. His political views are consistently based on America's founding ideals, those in the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution.
Dave Daubenmire, a coordinator and speaker for the Gathering of Eagles Conference, is known throughout America for his courageous stand for religious liberties. Daubenmire, a veteran 25 year high school football coach, was spurred to action when attacked and eventually sued by the ACLU in the late 1990’s for alledgedly mixing prayer with his coaching. After a two year battle for his 1st amendment rights and a determination to not back down, the ACLU relented and offered coach an out of court settlement. God honored his stand and the ACLU backed off. Coach’s courageous stand, an inspiration to Americans everywhere, demonstrated that the ACLU can be defeated.
Vision America founder Rick Scarborough will be joining the conference as a featured speaker. Dr. Scarborough holds a Master of Divinity Degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Ministry Degree from Louisiana Baptist Theological Seminary. He holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Houston Baptist University, with a double major in Political Science and Speech.
In 1992, Dr. Scarborough gained national recognition when he exposed the contents of a disturbing assembly program at a local high school. Under the auspices of an “AIDS Presentation,” a young lady, sponsored by the AIDS Foundation of Houston, candidly discussed every sex act imaginable expressing the opinion (presented as fact) that “safe sex” was attainable by using condoms. Dr. Scarborough recorded the assembly and then made transcripts available to his congregation the following Sunday morning. The resulting furor that erupted caught the eye of the national media. The Washington Times has referred to Dr. Scarborough as one of the "rising stars in the politically active arm of American evangelicalism."
Peter LaBarbera, considered to be one of the preeminent threats to the radical homosexual lobby, will be bringing his many years of Christian Conservative leadership to the Gathering of Eagles Conference. LaBarbera, 45, is president of Americans For Truth (about Homosexuality, or AFTAH), a group dedicated to exposing the homosexual activist agenda. Founded as a part-time venture in 1996 but newly reorganized in August 2006, AFTAH seeks to apply a single-minded determination to oppose the radical homosexual agenda and to stand up for God-ordained sexuality and the natural family.
America Asleep kNOw More, a Missouri-based Christian ministry, is providing a number of speakers for the two day event. Gregory Thompson, the founder of America Asleep kNOw More, has traveled throughout the United States to sound a clarion call for Americans to awaken to the moral dangers which are quickly costing them their civil and religious liberties.
From 1998 - 2004, Thompson was the Superintendent of Humansville R-IV School District in Polk County, Missouri. He was President of the Ozark School Superintendents from 2000 - 2004. It was in 2004, that President Gregory Thompson sacrificed his career on behalf of Christians everywhere in America. He was officially fired on Sept. 8, 2004 for refusing to keep the Ten Commandments out of the school, the Cross off of his office wall, the Bible off of his desk, and for indicating that he would pray for U.S. military veterans, children and their families.
Joining Gregory Thompson at the conference will be America Asleep kNOw President Mark Kiser. Mark Kiser serves as a pastor in Springfield, Missouri and is the father of seven children. Kiser has earned a reputation throughout Missouri for his Biblical stand against sexual immorality, illegal drug use and abortion.
The pro-life movement will be well-represented at the Gathering of Eagles Summit. Rev. Flip Benham, who was the national director for Operation Rescue in 1994, will be bringing his many years of activism to the conference. Appearing on numerous local and national television and radio programs (Good Morning America, 48 Hours, Sonja Live, David Praegger Live, ABC World News Tonight, CBS News, NBC News, Hannity & Colmes, and CNN), Rev. Benham is a bold witness for the Lord Jesus Christ in the public arena.
Dr. Patrick Johnston, not only works to help young women have healthy lives and healthy babies, but he and his wife, Elizabeth, practice what they preach at home. They are the parents of six, very young children. Patrick and Elizabeth Johnston reside in central Ohio with their six young home-schooled children. Dr. Johnston is a family practice physician and founder of the Association of Pro-life Physicians. He is also a candidate for Ohio's 94th District in the 2008 elections. Dr. Johnston will be a featured speaker at the Gathering of Eagles Conference.
California's Christian Conservative movement will be represented at the Gathering of Eagles Summit by San Diego-based activist James Hartline. Hartline is the founder of California Christian News. Hartline caused a stir in national and local news services in July when he announced that he would be seeking a seat on the San Diego City Council. As a former homosexual, James Hartline's city council district is located in the area that is home to much of San Diego's gay community.
In 2006, James Hartline's life story was featured on an international broadcast of CBN's The 700 Club. During that broadcast, James told the story of how he was infected with the AIDS virus in a San Diego gay sex club in 1997. As a result of that broadcast and a four year battle waged by James to shut the club down, the City of San Diego shuttered the club's doors for good in 2007. It marked the eighth time in the past five years that Hartline has successfully shut down a pornographic business in the city of San Diego.
"I am going with an expectation that something big is going to happen in America as a result of this conference," says Hartline. "So many of the men coming to this event have given their lives for the cause of Christ and we will not be denied our goal of spiritually igniting Christians in America to awaken this nation!"
