    The Harvest Festival of Thanksgiving

    By Dr. Paul Jehle, Executive Director
    Plymouth Rock Foundation
     

    At this time of year many people reflect upon the Pilgrims and the origin of our American Thanksgiving holiday. Some contend that it either never occurred or was not a friendly affair with a legacy of genocide. Hopefully some context and clarity can help remove these myths and bring factual balance. Consider some of these facts: (1) We do not know when the actual harvest feast occurred, though we know it was the fall of 1621. (2) We don't know if the Pilgrims invited their Native neighbors to a pre-planned event, but we know they feasted together. (3) The Natives provided much of the food, and though they had turkey, venison ruled the day.

     
    The Pilgrims (who were not called "pilgrims" until late in the 18th century), as children of the Reformation, "separatists" from the established Church of England, called for days of prayer as well as days of thanksgiving. Days of solemn prayer (and often fasting) were times of repentance for sin; known or unknown. Days of thanksgiving were called when specific answers to those prayers occurred. Neither of these was the origin of the harvest festival in the fall of 1621.

    5 Steps To A Political Epiphany

    Pastor Cary Gordon illustrates his political epiphany in 5 short videos. Party founder Howard Phillips had a similar epiphany and realized that his part in the solution was to build a party whose strategy would be undergirded by honoring God's Law in the political sphere. The Constitution Party of Georgia is accomplishing this by focusing on local politics and government. 

    Take the first step to see how people realize that something is wrong...

    Statement on U.S. Senate Candidate Roy S. Moore

    One of the fruits of America’s culture of libertine sexuality is the horror of sexual assault and abuse of women and girls.  This year their cries broke through the walls that America’s culture shapers in Hollywood, Nashville, New York, and Washington, D.C. have built to protect their open secrets.  The Constitution Party of Georgia has long advocated raising up men and women of integrity who are accountable to God and the people in their public and private lives, and will work to protect women and children from being violated by predators.

  • “Bring Your Guns to Church” Sunday

    I originally wrote most of this in 2009. I updated it in 2015. The warnings and advice here are tragically illustrated in this terrible attack. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims in Southerland Springs, and our admonition go out to all.


    Gun-and-BibleImagine the following scenario: At church this Sunday, while reviewing the list of announcements and upcoming events for your church, your pastor adds, “Oh, and don’t forget: on Sundays we have our regular target practice. Make sure to bring your guns. Make sure to bring your pieces to church.”

    November 2017 Cherokee County Party Monthly Meeting

    Imagine a political party where you and other fellow patriots share a common understanding of the nature and purpose of civil government.  Imagine working with and supporting a political party where honoring God in how things get done is as important as the goals to achieve.  Imagine freedom from supporting lesser evils, compromising your core principles, and winner's regret.

    Welcome Home to the Constitution Party!

    The Cherokee County monthly meeting is held on the 4th Tuesday of the month and is open to all who are interested in learning more about the party and supporting our goals.  Meetings feature presentations that will educate and provide avenues for political action.  If you're looking for a debate club or conspiracy theory huddle then this meeting is not for you.  During our activism session members are involved in the process of political action - nobody sits on the sidelines!  We welcome patriots willing to dedicate themselves to united action to impact our city, county, and state governments.

    CP-Ga Teleconference

    December 2017 Statewide Tele-Town Hall Meeting

    The monthly statewide Tele-Town Halls are public events where persons interested in the party can hear about the party's history and activities here in Georgia, and learn how you can get involved.

    The December 2017 statewide Tele-Town Hall will provide an update on party activities here in Georgia, as well as commentary on current political topics such as immigration, religious liberty, gun control, surveillance, taxation and debt.  Activists from around the state will give updates on what the party is doing.  But most importantly this will give you an opportunity to ask questions about the party.  

    With the growing discontent with the two-party establishment, concerned voters are seeking out the Constitution Party.  This is an opportunity for supporters and activists to introduce friends and family to the party. 

    RSVP today!  Once you register you will be emailed the conference call information.
