Last year we noted that a group calling itself Reclaiming Oklahoma for Christ which had more or less proclaimed itself the second incarnation of the late D. James Kennedy’s defunct Center for Reclaiming America for Christ, though it was to be focused initially on Oklahoma.
Since then its founder, Paul Blair, has managed to establish himself among the Religious Right’s B-list activists, co-organizing last fall’s anti-hate crimes legislation rally and playing a key role in Janet Porter’s recent May Day 2010 rally .. and so the organzation’s mission has been expanded beyond Oklahoma to the entire nation:
We began working to “Reclaim Oklahoma for Christ” and now have an effective working relationship with over 100 pastors from across our state. Our goal is to connect with, encourage, and if needed, assist pastors all over the nation in reclaiming their own states for Christ and the Christian liberty upon which our founding fathers built this great country.
Although we are not affiliated or connected with Coral Ridge Ministries or its former initiative, the Center for Reclaiming America, we have been granted permission by those entities to use the name “Reclaiming America for Christ” as we expand this vision across America. We hope to honor the name and legacy of Dr. Kennedy as we strive for another Great Awakening in this nation.
And next month, the group is hosting two day conference/Tea Party event that is scheduled to feature the likes of David Barton, Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis, Jim Garlow, and Rick Scarborough:
