Dedicated to the
Sovereignty of



The Missouri state capitol rotunda was a fitting place for the rally. The inscriptions, carved in stone when it was built in about 1919, reminded us that our forefathers weren't ashamed to acknowledge God! (The inscription here is, “The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof.” Psalm 24:1)

10 Commandments Faith and Freedom Rally Huge Success!

Saturday, Nov. 22, 2003
An estimated 1000 people crowded into the rotunda of Missouri's capitol building Saturday to help kick off a nation wide effort to deal with the judicial tyranny that plagues America. At least 47 other capitols were the scenes of similar events. If those other state's rallies were anything like ours, there must be at least 50,000 God fearing Americans who are fired up and ready to take these activists judges head on!

The primary objective of the rally was to launch a petition drive to promote federal legislation which would limit the jurisdiction of federal courts where religious matters are concerned. Any reasonable interpretation of the constitution includes an understanding that federal courts have no jurisdiction when first amendment issues arise on the state level. While it would appropriate for a federal court to intervene when a federal bureaucracy was infringing on religious liberty, the constitution leaves it up to the states to deal with their internal issues.

Thomas Jefferson explained it this way:
Our citizens have wisely formed themselves into one nation as to others and several States as among themselves. To the united nation belong our external and mutual relations; to each State, severally, the care of our persons, our property, our reputation and religious freedom." -- Thomas Jefferson: To Rhode Island Assembly, 1801

The things most precious to us Jefferson said, are to be protected not by the federal government, but by our own states! This wasn't just his preference – its the way it was, constitutionally, and is the way it should be once again. The legislation the petition calls for will make this abundantly clear to the courts today and for generations to come.

The petition reads, in part::

The lack of constitutional restraint on the courts and lack of congressional checks upon their power have led the federal judiciary to be a real and present danger to our religious freedom.

Therefore we, the people of this nation and the States, demand that Congress, and you as our representative, fulfill your constitutional duty and stop these habitual transgressions of the supreme law of the land by limiting the appellate jurisdiction of the federal courts in accordance with Article 3 of the Constitution. We demand that Congress pass legislation that will prohibit the federal courts from taking cases that would in any way regulate, restrict or prohibit religious speech or activity in the States.

We respectfully demand, as your constituents and fellow citizens, that you sponsor or co-sponsor legislation that will effect this immediately.

The rallies held across the nation on November 22 were just a beginning of a major movement to take back the courts and the constitution for the people. You can be a part of this great effort. Please contact Missouri First or the National Coalition to Restore the Constitution.
