(AFDJ) Washington DC - The Christian Coalition wants to save America by taking it over, so says the religious group's leader, Ralph Reed. "America has reached a spiritual crossroad," announced Reed in a press hearing today. "We can no longer hope and pray for our leaders to do the right thing. Starting today, we will be taking over this country and saving it from itself." Reed outlined his plan by which local, state, and federal supporters already in key government positions will begin the conversion of America from a democratic republic to a theocratic one. "We already have most of the government offices firmly in our control. It is only a matter of converting the laws of this country to following God's law." According the the Coalition, the US Constitution will hereby be declared null and void. In it's place will be a new Constitution based on the bible. Key guarantees include the union of church and state, and absolute religous freedom providing that religion is recognized by the Christian Coalition. The White House had no comment at the time, but aides say President Clinton is threatening to call in the National Guard and order the arrest of Reed and others on the grounds of treason. Reed laughed at that report. "He can try. But more than half the soldiers in the National Guard are solid Christians." House Speaker Newt Gingrich asked the people to remain calm. "In the end this will be a good thing," he said as he addressed the House. "This will only be a temporary measure at worst, and once it's over we'll have a much stronger nation. Strong in both personal and moral resolve." --------- Telecommunciations News And Report, Copywright 1997 And in case you didn't catch on.. APRIL FOOL!!
