Shades of Theocracy 2: The Question and Answer Session
the debate sponsored by the Norman Tea Party and held at the First Assembly of God church in Norman, Oklahoma on March 20, 2014. Arguing in favor of calling for a Constitutional Convention to Amend the U.S. Constitution as provided for in Article V of the Constitution were Michael Farris, Founder of the Home School Legal Defense Association and Patrick Henry College, and Oklahoma State Senator Rob Standridge. Opposing the call for a Constitutional Convention and favoring individual states nullifying laws that they deem unconstitutional were Charlie Meadows, founder of the Oklahoma Conservative Political Action Committee and member of the John Birch Society, and Bob Donohoo, a regional leader with the John Birch Society. On the date of this debate, the proponents of nullification were carrying the day at the Oklahoma State Legislature.
