N.C. Right lays out its post-election action plan


The Christian Action League of North Carolina’s executive director, the Rev. Mark Creech, says Christians were “body slammed” at the polls. Obama’s won. The Tar Heel State went blue. Indeed, his world must be coming to an end.

But, no! He finds hope!

The Rev. Mark Creech, executive director of the Christian Action League, admitted late this week that he has truly grieved over what he likened to believers’ being “body slammed” at the polls. But deeper than his grief is his conviction that God will use this very dark moment in our nation’s history to reverse its course permanently.

“In a sense I believe it is kind of like a drug addict that has to hit rock bottom before turning around,” Creech said. “I’m afraid our country and state have to hit rock bottom before realizing that the ideas it has embraced are bankrupt.”

He’s laid out his post-election action plan:

  1. Focus on anti-choice initiatives at the national level to confront Obama as “the most pro-abortion president in the nation’s histor.”
  2. Redouble their efforts to push back state legislation that would protect North Carolina children from bullying, harassment and abuse in public schools.
  3. Push N.C. state legislators to pass a constitutional amendment banning recognition of all same-sex relationships.

Oh, and don’t forget his plea for cash:

The Rev. Creech also challenged supporters to make a difference by contributing financially to the Christian Action League.

“The Christian Action League is struggling financially. If ever there was a time to come to our aid, now is the time to do it,” he said, alluding to the organization’s budget deficit.

A bankrupt Christian Action League. Oh, no. We can’t have that.

    Since when do they represent the “N.C. Right”?

    They’re certainly an integral part of this state’s religious right movement, don’t you think? An affiliate of the American Family Association and buddy-buddy with the N.C. Family Policy Council — They’ll certainly have some sway with conservative, right-wing legislators.

    I certainly hope he’s not looking for a federal bailout plan. Muah!

    I don’t think they have the sway with legislators you’re imagining… what are top issues these days? The economy, energy, transportation, education, and to a lesser degree, immigration. Until Palin brought up abortion with the “special needs” thing last month, we really did not see any social issues get a lot of play during this election cycle. I know you’re going to come back with a great zinger I’m not thinking of right now, but, well, I can’t think of any.

    I don’t think NC or the country are moving hard to the left like the bluenc crowd would like to believe, but I don’t agree that we’re as far to the right as we used to be, either. That being said, the AFA and the NC Family Policy Council are viewed as more and more fringe every year.

    Unless Obama can fix the economy and Perdue can fix the corruption, I don’t think social issues are going to top the right-wing agenda for the next few years. I don’t know how the party infighting will all shake out, but I think (err, hope) Republicans will return to a focus on fiscal responsibility.
