OH's Blackwell & the Council for Natl Policy
Speaking of black men who've done lost their mind... OH's Sec of State Blackwell has scrubbed his site of any evidence of this meeting w/the Council for Natl Policy. Why would he do that? B/c the CNP is THE uber wingnut group of all the wingnut groups: "CNP's 1st president was Tim LaHaye, the famed preacher and writer of the Left Behind series of Rapture books about the "end-times". LaHaye, like the other Religious Frighters brew a strong contempt for the 1st Amend principle of church-state separation, because it seriously complicates their goal of installing their version of Christianity as the US’s officially religion. Many members of the CNP are part of the Christian Reconstructionist movement. Reconstructionists call for trashing the Constitution and replacing it with the harsh legal code of the Old Testament. They advocate the death penalty for adulterers, blasphemers, incorrigible teenagers, gay people, "witches" and those who worship "false gods." Oh yeah... the reasons to flee screaming and flailing from OH just keep piling up.
