CONCERNED WOMEN FOR AMERICA

Dr. Lorraine Day, Conference Speaker
Concerned Women for America (CWA) held its 11th annual national
convention in mid-September, just two weeks after the Christian
Coalition's Road to Victory Conference.
The Christian Coalition conference garnered much more media coverage
and was much better attended, drawing 3,000 attendees compared with
Concerned Women for America's 800, but the CWA conference was noteworthy
in a number of respects, perhaps especially for the ways in which it
echoed the messages of several of the other Religious Right conferences
held during the last year.
Concerned women for America "seeks to preserve Judeo-Christian Values
in law and public policy, to protect family rights, and to provide a
voice for women who feel unrepresented by the feminist movement." The
group gave its America Patriot Award to Jesse Helms for his "fights
against liberalism, abortion, and the homosexual agenda."
Some of the speakers at the CWA conference included:
* Governor George Allen * of Virginia, who pronounced his stand "against
those who want to remake our children through such outrageous schemes as
outcome-based education" and characterized welfare as "encouraging and
promoting laziness and idleness."
* Oliver North * who proved to be an alarmingly good speaker capable of
stating his beliefs in relatively moderate terms. While stating that "we
need God in America" and "we know every word in the Bible is true," he
categorically denied any intention of imposing his religious beliefs on
others if he were elected to the United States Senate. Strong support
for North (who has since been defeated by Democratic opponent Charles
Robb) was evident throughout the conference.
* Wilma Leftwich * who apprised the audience of her physical ailments,
which included respiratory problems, spurs on her heels, and the fact
that she hears radio signals. She claimed that when she first discovered
the international "one world government" plot, she became so sick she
was flat on her back in the hospital. Leftwich revealed to her rapt
audience that multicultural education, outcome-based education, and
environmentalism were part of a worldwide plot which would abolish
United States sovereignty and require Christians to renounce their faith
in God. "They" (secular humanists, i.e., everyone who is not part of the
Religious Right, including Christians who do not agree with the
Religious Right's agenda) would reduce U.S. population by imposing a
marriage tax and a child tax; implementing compulsory sterilization of
all who have two children (except for a few who would be allowed to have
three); requiring a certificate-type permit to have children; giving
monetary compensation to encourage sterilization, abortion, and
contraception; putting fertility control agents in the water supply;
restructuring the family ("this is where the feminist/socialist movement
comes in"); and encouraging increased homosexuality ("this is, of
course, where the gay rights movement comes in").
* David Barton * who gave practically verbatim the same anti-separation
of church and state speech he gave at the Christian Coalition's Road to
Victory Conference. (He also wore the same stars and stripes tie.)
Barton went to to recapitulate the Christian Reconstructionist theory
that the basis of our laws should be "whatever is Christian is legal.
Whatever isn't Christian is illegal."
* Dr. Lorraine Day * who claimed that "everything the government has
told you about AIDS since 1981 is a lie, part of a plan to decrease
population not only through abortion and birth control, but through
disease." Day revealed that AIDS is transmitted through the air, in the
course of casual contact (involving no exchange of bodily fluids), and
even through contact with surfaces such as toilets for up to seven days
after contamination. She went on to claim that HIV is a lot smaller
than sperm and can permeate latex condoms. (The CDC has scientifically
tested this possibility and refuted it, and the reduction in incidence
of HIV among persons using condoms corroborates CDC findings. The
possibility of condoms breaking is a different matter, and is the reason
why the use of condoms is referred to as a safer sex, as opposed to safe
sex, practice.) Dr. Day said that the only source of truth on this
subject is "The Washington Times" (which is owned by the Unification
Church, whose adherents are popularly known as "Moonies"). Day's
campaign of misinformation appears to be aimed at developing support for
future mandatory testing and quarantine initiatives.

CONCERNED WOMEN FOR AMERICA [Continued]
* Dr. Richard Glasow * who extolled the evils of abortion generally, and
of RU-486 in particular.
* Senator Jesse Helms * who declared that "the great overwhelming
majority of American women don't believe in `secular' values. They
believe the roles of mother and homemaker are important."
* Josh McDowell * director of Campus Crusade for Christ. The gist of his
speech was that the secular humanist view that moral values are not
necessarily absolute is responsible for virtually every gruesome event
reported on the nightly news.
* Will Perkins * who organized Colorado's Amendment 2, which prohibits
protecting gays, lesbians and bisexuals against discrimination in
housing and employment. Perkins claimed that he has homosexual friends
who full approve of his efforts.
* Jim Woodall * CWA's vice president of management, explained to his
audience that there is a homosexual agenda and that the agenda is a
conspiracy to lay siege on people of faith and to close all churches
which condemn homosexuality. Woodall turned the majority of his speaking
time over to Fred D. Vastine, "a scientist that's a believer" whose task
was to convincingly refute the theory that homosexuality may be
genetically determined. Vastine is a coal hydration specialist who works
* Dennis Prager * a Jewish radio talk-show host and author who served to
demonstrate that it is not exclusively Christians who compose the
Religious Right, but some conservative Jews as well. Prager proclaimed
that the fact that he was invited to speak was "proof of the
intellectual openness of the Religious Right."" (If intellectual openness
is the reason CWA invited Prager to speak, I'm perplexed that they chose
a Jewish presenter who, by Prager's own account, is believed by some of
his radio talk-show audience to be a Christian. Prager describes the
L.A. riots as evidence of "Post-Christian America," and claims that "the
blacks who saved peoples' lives were overwhelmingly identified as
Christians, and the blacks who killed people were overwhelmingly
secular." He did not cite any study to support this "fact." It would
seem to me to be more "open minded" to invite as a speaker any one of
the thousands of Jews who are identifiable as such and who do not share
part and parcel CWA's views).
The Concerned Women for America conference demonstrated what had
become apparent from several other Religious Right conferences held in
the past year: virtually all of the Religious Right organizations work
to further the same agenda, regardless of their proclaimed emphasis. The
ultimate goal of many of the most powerful leaders of the Religious
Right is the "Christianization of America." That is precisely what makes
the apparent willingness of some conservative and ultraconservative
views to coalesce with the overwhelmingly Christian Religious Right so
