Candidate questionnaire for those wishing endorsement from Conservative Christians of Alabama
The questionnaire is also available as a Word Document
Please answer the following questions. (Support/Oppose, or Yes/No.)
1. Do you support an Educational Lottery to fund government schools?
2. Do you support legalized gambling in any form such as a Lottery, Casino Gambling, Casinos on Indian Reservations, Bingo Machines, Slot Machines, and Dog Track Betting?
3. Ever since Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme court and most federal courts have ruled against any significant restrictions on abortion and abortion clinics. Since God's Word says "Thou shalt not murder" (Exodus 20:13), and "Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man" (Genesis 9:6), and that civil authorities are ordained by God as a "servant of God, an avenger for wrath to him that doeth evil" (Romans 13:4), should the relevant civil authorities do everything in their power to restrict abortion and punish doctors who perform abortions regardless of Federal law or court opinion? For example, a sheriff should arrest abortion doctors and prosecute them for murder, the prosecutors should investigate and prosecute abortionists for murder, judges should rule in favor of pro-life laws and to convict abortionists, the legislature should pass laws abolishing abortion, the governor and legislature should nullify federal law or federal court rulings which strike down state laws, the department of health should revoke the licenses of abortion clinics, and the state medical board should revoke the licenses of abortion doctors.
Freedom of religion
4. Since the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof", does that mean we should be protecting the right to promote and to worship false religions such as Islam, Wicca, or satanism?
5. Should the Ten Commandments be displayed publicly on Government property and buildings such as courthouses and schools?
History and heritage

Should prosecutors refuse to prosecute any citizen for such a law? Should the legislature and governor nullify federal laws and court rulings or orders on guns which violate the 2nd amendment?
