What does the Colorado vote mean for Personhood Florida?

Personhood is a plan to amend each state constitution to define that a “person” with the right to life is any human being — from the unborn child at the beginning of biological development on through natural death.

To find out more about how to get involved with Personhood Florida, please go to www.PersonhoodFL.com. You can download printable petitions directly from the website.

Unlike other states, Florida has no ballot deadline for state constitutional amendment petitions. Although each signature expires four years after its signing, the Personhood Amendment signature drive is valid indefinitely — or until we have enough signatures to put it on the ballot. Unlike other states, such as Colorado or Mississippi, which require less than 100,000 signatures, Florida’s requirement is close to 700,000.

As one Florida state legislator said to me earlier this year, “Personhood is where we are going eventually. Why not get it started now?”

We are being realistic, yet optimistic, in saying that we have a big job ahead of us. We began in earnest less than a year ago and still have many battles ahead of us. We are pleased with the support and growing interest we are seeing right now especially with the Colorado vote in the news and the looming Mississippi vote in 2011.

Can Personhood actually work?

There is one important aspect of the Personhood Amendment most people don’t realize. In every state where this has been tried, even though it hasn’t passed yet, the opinion of the public has shifted dramatically toward the position of “pro-life with no exceptions.” For instance, the Republican candidate for Senator and two candidates for Governor in Colorado have endorsed Personhood. In fact, throughout the country, we have more candidates than ever before who are pro-life without exception. This is partially due to Personhood raising the standard.

The Republican Governor candidate in Mississippi has also endorsed Personhood and is pro-life with no exceptions.

So Personhood works, not just as a ballot initiative, but also as a way to make sure our candidates are truly pro-life. It works also as a way of educating and changing public opinion. In other words, even when we have lost, we have won support. In the end, we will need all three in order to make this a reality — education, voter initiatives and legislation.

In the meantime, wouldn’t you like to see something like the following happen in Florida?

In 2008, only a few candidates in Colorado endorsed Personhood. Here is the list of Colorado candidates who have endorsed Personhood (Amendment 62) in 2010. Tom Tancredo is the only Independent on the list, the rest are Republican candidates.

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.

Amazing GraceAmazing Grace: The History and Theology of Calvinism (DVD)

Download the Free Study Guide!

Just what is Calvinism?

Does this teaching make man a deterministic robot and God the author of sin? What about free will? If the church accepts Calvinism, won’t evangelism be stifled, perhaps even extinguished? How can we balance God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility? What are the differences between historic Calvinism and hyper-Calvinism? Why did men like Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Spurgeon, Whitefield, Edwards and a host of renowned Protestant evangelists embrace the teaching of predestination and election and deny free will theology?

This is the first video documentary that answers these and other related questions. Hosted by Eric Holmberg, this fascinating three-part, four-hour presentation is detailed enough so as to not gloss over the controversy. At the same time, it is broken up into ten “Sunday-school-sized” sections to make the rich content manageable and accessible for the average viewer.

“These videos helped change my mind from pro-choice to pro-life. Your videos are what did it for me. I will be walking in next year’s March For Life in San Francisco.” — A. Jackson, California

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan
