A new ecumenical alliance
This time round, he won't be the only Catholic, but he'll still be the only New Yorker speaking at the televised rally to be beamed across America tonight from a megachurch in the South.

"This is new territory for me," acknowledged William Donohue of the Manhattan-based Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, best known for his unrelenting crusades against what he regards as anti-Catholic bias in Hollywood and the media.

But for the second time tonight, Donohue will appear with some of the most influential evangelical leaders in America, for "Justice Sunday II" - a rally promoting religious values - in the public square telecast from Two Rivers Baptist Church in Nashville, Tenn. The first event, in Louisville, Ky., in April, drew millions of viewers via Christian satellite, organizers said.

But given some of Donohue's past confrontations with evangelicals, his involvement in Justice ...

I can make this message short. Read Gil Rugh's booklet:

Politics sure makes for strange bed fellows.

The real answer for American politics is and has always been Jesus Christ. And spiritual adultery will never bring forth good fruit.

Cont.,

"Mr. Nye then read it from the pulpit, slowly and aloud, pausing at the close of every article, while the whole audience of statesmen and divines arose, and, with their right hands held up to heaven, worshipped the great name of God, and gave their sacred pledge.

Then the members of the House of Commons subscribed the Covenant on one roll of parchment, and the Assembly on another; and when this was done, the solemn scene was closed by prayer and praise to that omniscient God to whom they had lifted up their hands and made their vows.‚ÄĚ[26]

So, this Covenant, drafted by Henderson and accepted by the English Commissioners, was transmitted to England, had some small modifications made, was approved by the Assembly and accepted by the Houses, and finally was directed to be subscribed throughout the kingdom, as it was also in Scotland.[27]

The day when this Covenant was subscribed,‚ÄĚ says the Erastian Coleman, ‚Äúwas a day of great contentment and joy.[28]

I wonder if this is what the Catholics and Evangelicals will be doing:

"“To complete in one view the account of this matter, the Covenant was taken by the House of Lords on the 15th of October, after sermon by Dr. Temple, and an exhortation by Mr. Coleman.

On that day, accordingly, the House of Commons, with the Assembly of Divines and the Scottish commissioners, met in the Church of St. Margaret, Westminster; and the Rev. Mr. White of Dorchester, one of the assessors, commenced the solemnity with prayer.

Mr. Nye then addressed the dignified and grave audience in a speech of an hour’s duration, pointing out the Scripture authority of such covenants, and the advantage of which they had been productive to the Church of God in all ages.

Mr. Henderson followed in a speech considerably shorter, but of great dignity and power.

"Donohue's involvement is the latest sign of the growing alliance between conservative Catholics and evangelical Christians, which is reshaping American politics and culture. And it speaks to the unified front behind Supreme Court nominee John Roberts from conservative quarters."

Again, the Apostate Church getting involved in politics. This is going beyond casting your vote and praying for your leaders. This is activism.

"With this mode of expressing the general principle all were satisfied; and after receiving the approbation of the private committees, the Solemn League and Covenant was submitted to the General Assembly on the 17th of August 1643, passed unanimously, amidst the applause of some, and the bursting tears of a deep, full, and sacred joy of others; and in the afternoon, with the same cordial unanimity, passed the Convention of Estates.

"This," says Baillie, "seems to be a new period and crisis of the most great adair which these hundred years has exercised these dominions." He was not mistaken; it was indeed the commencement of a new period in the history of the Christian Church, though that period has not yet run its full round, nor reached its crisis, ‚ÄĒ a crisis which will shake and new-mold the world.[12]"

Cont.,

"The Scottish delegation, naturally, favored the Presbyterian system of church government as it had been established in their homeland in the days of John Knox and of Andrew Melville. One of the first major turning-points came as a result of a deteriorating military situation in 1643 that led to the Solemn League and Covenant.

The Solemn League and Covenant was originally framed by Alexander Henderson, moderator of the Assembly, and laid before the English commissioners. At first they startled somewhat at its terms, some of them wishing for a ‚Äúgreater latitude of expression and explanation to the phrases in the document,‚ÄĚ to leave room for the introduction of the Independent or Congregational system of church government. In this, too, a slight compromise was made, no specific plan for the reformation of religion in England and Ireland being stated, except that it should be "according to the Word of God, and the example of the best reformed Churches."

"One hundred and twenty ministers and thirty laymen were invited to attend, but only about half the number attended with any regularity. The Assembly first met on July 1st, 1643, in Westminster Abbey.

Importantly Toon notes, ‚ÄúIt needs perhaps to be emphasized that this Assembly had no independent power; it was wholly dependent upon Parliament as to the subject matter of its discussions and for the implementation of its conclusions.‚ÄĚ[11]

The members of the Assembly, all being Calvinists, were essential­ly agreed in doctrine. They were also all agreed in wanting to change the prelacy of the existing Episcopal system of church government, though some held out hope for a modified form of Episcopacy.

It was also apparent before the beginning of the Assembly that some of the Puritan brotherhood, particularly those who had experienced Congre­gationalism while in exile in the Netherlands under the Brownists, were in favor of Inde­pendency within a national church.

"a rally promoting religious values - in the public square telecast from Two Rivers Baptist Church in Nashville, Tenn. The first event, in Louisville, Ky., in April, drew millions of viewers via Christian satellite, organizers said."

They say this is a great modern revival on religious values between the Catholics and Evangelicals.

If anyone wants to read an excellent and very well documented history (just recently published) of a small part of the first reformation in Scotland and the second reformation in Scotland, England and Ireland see here:

http://www.apuritansmind.com/WCF/McMahonHistoryTheologySL&C.htm

This will give you a comparison of what is happening today with the revival of values, as compared to true biblical reformation.

There is a HUGH distinction to be made!
