A reader forwarded me an email that Jerry Falwell just sent to his mailing list. It is a call for members for a 21st century version of The Moral Majority, and looks to be the beginning of the final push to outlaw abortion and ban gay marriage. Here's an excerpt:
DATE: November 24, 2004
FROM: Jerry Falwell
TO: THE MORAL MAJORITY COALITION
RECRUITMENT BEGINS FOR FIRST ONE MILLION COALITION MEMBERS!!
Here I go again! I am today launching a campaign to enlist the first one million charter members of The Moral Majority Coalition (TMMC), a 21st Century Moral Majority. I am asking you to be one of those historic charter members without financial charge by visiting our new website- www.faithandvalues.us .
I announced nationally last week that God has led me to mobilize TMMC and to immediately implement our agenda which I believe can begin restoring America to the her original Judeo-Christian ethic as "One Nation Under God".
HERE IS THE MORAL MAJORITY COALITION AGENDA:
(1) The confirmation of pro-life, strict constructionist U.S. Supreme Court justices and other federal judges; (2) the passage of a constitutional Federal Marriage Amendment; and (3) the election of another socially, fiscally and politically conservative president in 2008, along with conservative members of Congress in 2006 and 2008.

GOD ALLOWED ME TO GIVE BIRTH TO "THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT".
More than 25 years have passed since the Moral Majority was born. The fruit of our never-ending labors was blessed by God and became obvious to the world on November 2, 2004 when more than 30 million “faith and values” voters went to the polls and made the difference in America.
The battle is not over by any means. We have thrown down the gauntlet. The left is furious. Everyone now knows that the stage is set for the church of Jesus Christ to turn this nation back to the faith of our fathers and the Judeo-Christian ethic. New Supreme Court justices can overturn Roe vs. Wade. The Federal Marriage Amendment to the U.S. Constitution can forever define the family as one man married to one woman. Any senator who opposes this FMA could face the same fate Sen. Tom Daschle experienced. I truly believe we can bring 40 million “faith and values” voters to the polls in 2008 to assure that Sen. Hillary Clinton, or someone of her ilk, will never be president of this nation. But, I need one million new charter members of TMMC immediately.
SEVEN DECADES IN MY REAR VIEW MIRROR.
Please help me finish what I started a quarter century ago. At age 71, I am dedicating the next four years to finishing the vision God gave me as a much younger man. I need your help!!
