[ed: see end of story for video] People for the American Way's Kyle Mantyla has picked up on an important aspect of the June 5, 2009 Virginia Beach Rock Church event, co-hosted by Christian martyrdom proponent and TheCall founder Lou Engle, that attracted possible 2012 presidential race aspirants Newt Gingrich and Mike Huckabee. Apparently the legal confine of TheCall's 501(c)(3) nonprofit structure, which only allowed Lou Engle to make public calls, from onstage before audiences of thousands, for acts of Christian martyrdom, was too restrictive for C. Peter Wagner's aspiring "Prophetic Elder" Engle. As Mantyla describes in his PFAW post [with accompanying video - see PFAW link, above],
The goal of Engle's Call to Action is to "redefine voting" for the next generation as a "prophetic act" and train them that they don't vote Democrat or Republican but vote "moral absolute truths," creating a mass army of young, motivated Christian voters who will pledge never to vote for a candidate who is not anti-choice, thereby creating a "spiritual revolution [and] training a generation to seize technology and turn the tide"
After Newt Gingrich's speech - in which the former "Contract With America" and GOP 1994 takeover of Congress mastermind called the ACLU a "hateful, anti-religious system designed to drive God out of America" and declared that Americans (non-pagans, at least) were "surrounded by paganism," Newt Gingrich assumed the position while Lou Engle called upon God to bless the former US Speaker of The House with divine magical power: "influence for righteousness in this nation, lay your supernatural hand of God upon him and deliver him from the evil schemes of the enemy."
"The position", in this case, is a posture typically taken during charismatic Christian ceremonies in which "spiritual gifts" are transmitted through the laying-on of hands: head down, hands held out or upraised. The posture suggests humility and receptiveness.
