Perhaps they should go even further...

And I don't mean going further in meeting their goals. I mean just plain further south!
ChristianExodus.org is moving thousands of Christians to South Carolina to reestablish constitutionally limited government founded upon Christian principles. This includes the return to South Carolina of all "powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States." It is evident that the U.S. Constitution has been abandoned under our current federal system, and the efforts of Christian activism to restore our Godly republic have proven futile over the past three decades. The time has come for Christian Constitutionalists to protect our American principles in a State like South Carolina by interposing the State's sovereign authority retained under the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
That's right, folks. This group of Christian Constitutionalists have a plan to redeem this nation one state at a time. Feel better now?

Hmmm, didn't South Carolina try this once before? Like sometime around December 1860?

Be well,

As near as I can tell, South Carolina seceded from the union on December 20, 1860. But the reason for this was (supposedly) because they were unhappy over restrictions on free trade and about calls for the abolition of slavery [source].

I don't know if that counts as a precedent for the so-called Christian Constitutionalists. After all, they are not planning on taking SC out of the union. They want to build up a critical mass that will enable them to remake the state legislature in their image ... and then repeat that in other states.
