She was the last person to enter and the first to exit from the race for Covington mayor, and now Dara McDowell has decided to reenter the race from which she never formally withdrew. In a press release issued Saturday morning, the Monte Casino mother of eight and home school advocate did not mention what she had previously referred to as the "homosexual agenda", and instead focused on what she views as an effort to remove Jesus Christ from the public sphere. Here is her statement in full: 
Out of concern for the lack of Christian values in the current Covington Mayoral Race, I have decided to reenter the race. We have become a nation that has embraced the religion of Secular Humanism which states that there is no God to whom we must give an account of our lives. Our founding fathers did not believe this way. In fact, It was President George Washington who gave two foundations for political prosperity. The first was "religion" and, the second was "morality“ without those two foundations society can not survive. President John Adams said, “Our Constitution was made solely for a moral and religious people.” Fisher Ames the founding father who offered the final wording of the First Amendment, urged that we never let the bible be separated from the classroom.
(*Noah Webster warned that serious social problems would proceed from American schools and public policy neglecting the principles found in the bible. Since prayer was taken out of schools in 1962, our nation has seen not only sharp moral decline but also plunging SAT scores.)
How is it that our Christian government has been taken over by the "anti-Christ" (which means the absence of Christ)? The answer is found in Matthew 13:24: "While the good men slept, the enemy came in." Jesus never faulted the enemy for doing what he did, for it was his task and purpose to destroy; Jesus placed the fault on the good men who went to sleep.
While we sleep, young adults are being led away to denounce God and base their lives their sinful behaviors. While we sleep, marriage is being redefined. While we sleep, our children’s inheritance is being squandered.
Obama’s attempt to redefine the institution that God has designed, as one man and one woman, is a WAKE UP a call! Our territory is now occupied by the enemy. It's time to establish a beachhead and take it back. "The violent take the Kingdom by force" (Matt 11:12) -- Thankfully, unlike our forefathers, nobody has to die, we just have to get up off of the couch and vote.
I may be a home schooling mother of 8, but I refuse to sleep while our city and national governments, continue to drive Christ out of the public sphere while, thus allowing Humanistic depravity in. We owe it to those who have shed their blood for us, their posterity, to truthfully stand up for the lost among us, and in so doing, for our own posterity as well.

  1. How about, "Let the human mind loose. It must be loose. It will be loose. Superstition and dogmatism cannot confine it." - John Adams
    That's one of his views on religion, and why it should be separated from the business of government. McDowell's quote is from a speech to soldiers, and totally out of context. Read the whole speech - very inspirational, but not an argument for theocracy.
