Letter to 290 Des Moines PastorsThis letter was not designed to get votes, but to restore America. Excerpt from the letter to pastors: "The doctrine that there should be a 'wall of separation between God’s Wisdom and man’s policies', so that therefore a man like me who quotes God in defense of my policies forfeits his credibility, came from pastors like you. I am challenging you, echoing President Reagan regarding a similarly tragic wall, 'Mr. Pastor, tear down this wall!'” Letter to Pastors.pdf
Research: Roe's "collapse" acknowledged by CongressAugust 22: Dave Leach has just posted his notes on the Congressional debate before passage of Laci's Law in 2004. The Democrats unanimously said the law, once passed, would establish the "personhood" of unborn babies, undermining, if not ending, legal abortion. Republicans agreed the law would establish the personhood of the unborn, although some of them said establishing unborn personhood would not "collapse" Roe. (See CongressionalRecord2004.pdf.)
Republican leadership censures Republican candidate for agreeing with God about sodomy; Leach sides with candidateAugust 20: Here is the complete record: the articles about the censure of Jeremy Walters, the candidate, my emails to reporter Jason Hancock, his articles based on my emails, comments after the articles, and all the blogs and other news sources that picked up Jason's articles. Towards the end of my research I found, right next to an angry article about what I said, an angry article about WHO Radio host Jan Mickelson saying almost the same thing.

I became the Des Moines, Iowa “Examiner” in the “Politics and Religion” area. I have used the opportunity to create a series of articles explaining why it is important that Christians cite the authority of the Bible in support of their political positions which are, in fact, inspired by the Bible. The series began July 4, 2010. The articles to date:
1 “It’s not just the economy, stupid!” A report on the July 4 Tea Party Rally in Des Moines, documenting the bold acknowledgment of God welling up in the Tea Party movement.
2 “Acknowledging God, but never quoting Him.” Although God is affirmed in general, is He ever quoted in connection with specific issues, to show that the positions we believe are based on the Bible, actually are? Observations of the Tea Party rally, the Iowa Renewal Project in which hundreds of pastors gathered to hear political information, and an email from David Farrah.
3 “The Power of God’s Sword” Report on the Iowa Renewal Project. The effectiveness of quoting God, even where the world insists you just lost them.
4 “Bible no basis for modern laws, says Register” Answering attacks on the relevance of God.
5 “Bible has always been the basis for U.S. law” Fear that quoting God will turn America into a “theocracy” is ignorance of how much our laws are patterned after the Bible. Forsaking God now risks forfeiting our freedoms.
6 “The Woman Caught in Adultery: how U.S. law follows Jesus’ example” The principle of Jury Nullification in American law.
7 “Good Morals are Good Economics”. Without morals, a long list of threats to America result.
8 “Dehumanizing Infanticide”. The undermining of all rights, by the destruction of the right to Life.
9 “Not just anybody’s idea of ‘good morals’ will do.” Why relativism is no help protecting you from someone whose ‘religion’ is to kill you.
10. America needs not vague “good morals”, but God’s morals.
11. Marriage Repair
12. Marriage repair part two: is it possible without God?
BIRTHDAY POSTCARDS.June 10, 2010
Today the first batch of 700 postcards went to voters with birthdays in the next few days.
August 3 Update: My birthday card made the business section of the Des Moines Register! The "Biz Buzz" column summarizes my card:
Biz owner, Senate candidate: Make music with me By Lynn HicksDave Leach has outdone Biz Buzz on birthday wishes. Mixing political and business advertising, the candidate for state Senate is sending out postcards on voters’ birthdays. He’s offering a free music lesson at his store, the Family Music Center, on Des Moines’ south side. And, you can air the song you learn on his cable TV program, the “Uncle Ed. Show.” “Offer expires when Dave Leach expires,” the postcard says. ... “I’m called a crazy, extremist, anti-abortion, traditional marriage-loving fanatic. But who would you rather have: me, or someone who STILL supports Obama?” he asks in the mailing. See Campaign Postcard.
