Today begins the Faith & Freedom Coalition‘s three-day “Road to Majorityconference, designed to bring millions of evangelicals to the polls next year. But hidden away in today’s agenda is a massive lobbying effort including hundreds of Tea Party evangelicals knocking on the doors of their U.S. Senators and Congressmen today, demanding a replacement law for what most expects to be a Supreme Court ruling that DOMA is unconstitutional.

DOMA is the Defense of Marriage Act of 1996 that bans the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages.

The Faith & Freedom Coalition (FFC) is headed by Jack Abramoff buddy and disgraced former Moral Majority leader Ralph Reed.

Claiming “the ‘Teavangelicals’ are back, Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody notes:

Immediately following the kick-off luncheon on Thursday, more than five hundred FFC members will hit Capitol Hill for what is being called, “Lobby Day.” They will meet with their Senators and Congressmen to lobby on marriage, immigration and IRS reform. On marriage, the thrust of the conversations will center on pushing lawmakers to start figuring out a replacement for the Defense of Marriage Act, assuming the Supreme Court rules it unconstitutional. Immigration talks will focus on making sure any immigration reform bill is fully anti-amnesty and full of real border security requirements. As for the IRS, FFC members will be lobbying for passage of two bills: The first one has a clever name: It’s called, “Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act of 2013″ and is sponsored by Tom Price in the House and John Cornyn in the Senate. It seeks to stop the Internal Revenue Service from putting into place or implementing any requirements of ObamaCare. The second bill is the IRS Anti-Abuse Act, sponsored by Paul Gosar. This legislation would make it a crime to discriminate against organizations and individuals based on their political affiliation or ideology.

As The New Civil Rights Movement reported earlier today, Tea Party GOP Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, along with Sarah Palin and NOM’s Brian Brown are headlining the three-day conference, but the list of confirmed speakers and VIPs is huge:

And how many of these fine Christian folks are attending at the behest of a church organization that files for tax-exempt status?
