Christian movement moving into South Carolina

GREENVILLE, S.C. — From his rural home near Lodi, Calif., Cory Burnell keeps close watch over the news from South Carolina, and he likes what he sees. Turning the state into a promised land for conservative Christians will be easier than he had thought, he says. Burnell, a 30-year-old financial adviser and founder of Christian Exodus, believes thousands of religious conservatives across the USA agree with him when he says their influence on government is diluted by liberals and Republicans who have failed to do what mainstream Americans elected them to do. The answer he came up with in late

‘Christian Exodus’ movement makes South Carolina its promised land

For now, it’s in a subdivision on the outskirts of Greenville, a small plot of land with a two-story house, the Ten Commandments posted in the front yard and a trampoline in the back. In time, Janoski believes South Carolina will fill with scores of other families who want a limited government based on Christian principles instead of officials who allow abortion and ban school prayer. Janoski moved his wife and four children from eastern Pennsylvania to South Carolina earlier this year after hearing about Christian Exodus, a movement to “reintroduce the Christian principles once so predominant in America” one

Christian Exodus asks conservatives to relocate to South Carolina

With a religious state in mind GREENVILLE, S.C. — Frank and Tammy Janoski, the Pennsylvania pilgrims, have landed. With their four children, they have settled into a little subdivision in the country, the first transplants of a movement that wants to bring legions of conservative Christians here to turn South Carolina’s government into a biblically inspired oasis. In the South Carolina of their dreams, abortion would be illegal, the Ten Commandments would be proudly displayed, public schools would be a thing of the past, taxes would be severely limited, and property rights would be paramount. And if the federal government

Christian group plans mass exodus to South Carolina

(Columbia) Nov. 18, 2004 – Church and state is the age old debate over how much each should be connected to the other. One man says he has the answer and his name is Cory Burnell, “The particular reason we’ve looked at this strategy is that we’ve come to the conclusion that across the nation, Christian conservatives really are having trouble getting any voice at the national level.” Burnell is the leader of “Christian Exodus .” It’s a group of Christian activists who say the nation is so far off the proper path, they will move to a place where

Christian sets sights on S. Carolina

TYLER – In a small tin building on the outskirts of this East Texas town, Cory Burnell has sold cellphones, gourmet coffee and a brand of religion meant to infuse God into government. In a soft voice far from the thunderous tones of many Southern preachers, Burnell pledges to lead throngs of Christian conservatives — 12,000 at a time — to South Carolina to either change the government or secede from the Union.

Group promotes secession from U.S.

Plan calls for conservative Christians to form government in S.C. A Texas group wants conservative Christians to move to South Carolina — 12,000 at a time — to form a biblically inspired government and secede from the United States. Decrying a national tolerance of abortion and gay marriage, and the teaching of evolution, ChristianExodus.org hopes to achieve a majority of like-minded Christians in the state by 2016, the planned year of secession. Scholars say the group is symptomatic of an alarming rise of separatist sentiment that is particularly strong in the South. But local government and Christian leaders are less
