Consider some of the items from the CoCC’s Statement of Principles:
‘We believe that the United States of America is a Christian country, that its people are a Christian people, and that its government and public leaders at all levels must reflect Christian beliefs and values.’
‘We believe that the United States derives from and is an integral part of European civilization and the European people and that the American people and government should remain European in their composition and character.’
‘We believe in the traditional family as the basic unit of human society and morality, and we oppose all efforts by the state and other powers to weaken the structure of the American family through toleration of sexual licentiousness, homosexuality and other perversions, mixture of the races, pornography in all forms, and subversion of the authority of parents.’
‘We believe the schools, public, private, and parochial, should teach students to be proud of being Americans and proud of their national and local identities, and that they should instill in them the values of Western, Christian, and American civilization.’
The Council of Conservative Citizens is descended from the White Citizens Councils in the South that worked to prevent African-American children from attending integrated schools. They’re hardly just a chummy group of ordinary conservatives.
