Oh yeah, I saw them on Fox News last summer. As far as I can remember, the spokesman basically said that their group wanted to offer political pull in the state for its value-based agenda, and that secession would only be an extreme measure if all else fails. Yeah, right. What may be enough for secession to them is, I’m sure, WAY too little for secession to the average Christian SC resident.
For the most part, Christian values are well received in this great state, but most level-minded people will not support radical views of secession, when push comes to shove. I know the group claims to have conducted a poll with results suggesting that more folks in South Carolina, than in any other state, believe in state sovereignty, but setting questions on poll accuracy, etc. aside, they need to re-evaluate whether or not their poll results mean that the majority of South Carolinians will actually support seceding from the United States again. My guess is that we won’t. We were the first state to secede from the Union in 1860, and although the “lost cause” of SC’s dream of state sovereignty is still etched into memory, so is the reality of the consequences that followed secession. Just a couple of months ago, Rep. Altman suggested that Charleston County secede from the US, for tax purposes. An overwhelming majority of the citizens of Charleston county laughed, and shook their heads at the sheer absurdity of the suggestion.
So all in all, I’m not saying we Christians shouldn’t give it our all in defending our faith. And I can’t predict the future–maybe things will get so bad someday, that the majority of Christians, and not just South Carolinians, will feel that secession is our only hope. However, I don’t exactly appreciate these people trying to take over my home state’s politics with hair-trigger-secession in mind as an ultimate goal. Take that mess elsewhere.:mad:
