By Kirk Radanovic Vice-President, L.C.A.
From time to time we are asked the question. "Who is Lancaster County ACTION? As we state in our mission statement, L.C.A. is a group of concerned men and woman who have joined together to help promote the election of men and women to local, state, and national offices who support the Judeo-Christian principles on which this nation was founded.
In order to more fully explain just who we are, I thought that it might be a good thing to take an inventory of our Board of Directors. I found that the 21 members of the greater Board represent a total of 14 different houses of worship. Although attending a specific church doesn't necessarily mean that this church as a whole endorses L.C.A., it does indicate that there is a certain level of diversity of perspectives.
A past newspaper article implied that L.C.A. predominately consists of members from two large Lancaster County churches, specificaly Calvary Church and The Worship Center. We do have a few advisors and directors who attend these two churches, however, the vast majority of our board attend other churches throughout our county. Some of these include a Catholic Church, an Episcopal Church, a Brethren Church, and several independent churches. I myself attend Dove Christian Fellowship, but also remain close to the church of my family, the Serbian Orthodox Church.
The goal of L.C.A. is not to promote any one church or particular view of the Christian faith, but rather to be a voice for Christian traditions and Biblical values in the public square, and more specifically in the political arena. We firmly believe that our nation was built on a Judeo-Christian foundation and that the freedoms we Americans enjoy are directly related to that foundation. In other words, we view any attack on this foundation as an attack on our freedoms as Americans.
We believe, as Alexis De Tocqueville said, (paraphrasing) "I found America in it's churches. America is not good because it is great, it is great, because it is good. If America ever ceases to be good, then, it will cease to be great. Furthermore, we believe that our elected officials play a critical role, either by strengthening, or by weakening this foundation. Therefore, we believe for a public official to be successful, he must understand the basic concept of God, and know that one day he will give an account to him for his actions.
