His son, Jeremiah attends Yale Law School and becomes a Civil War hero.
After the war, Jeremiah goes West to Galveston, Texas and builds a multi-city newspaper and national magazine publishing empire. Jeremiah’s eldest son, Jacob decides to invest ‘early’ in the Texas oil business, creating wealth beyond imagination. Jacob’s two brothers join him in expanding their business interests that make the McNunn’s one of the richest and most influential families in America.Devout Christians, the McNunn’s are encouraged by the 1892 Supreme Court declaration that the United States is a “Christian Nation”.
Then, they are progressively shocked and alarmed by a long series of Supreme Court decisions, expanding the influence of the Fourteenth Amendment that ultimately remove prayer and the Bible from Public Schools. They see these decisions as a denial of the rights of parents to see their children educated consistent with their beliefs and values. They become convinced the Supreme Court favors Humanism over the public reliance on the Providence of Almighty God.Jacob’s Great Grandson, Joshua McNunn, a famous television evangelist based in Texas, turns political activist while the rest of the McNunn family continues to expands their business and political influence.
After an infamous Supreme Court decision, banning even student led invocations from weekend high school games, the McNunn’s feel the call from God to act. From their headquarters in Virginia, Houston and Dallas, the McNunn’s use all their considerable God-given resources. Led by Joshua, they champion the cause for ratification of the Freedom Amendments by calling for an Article V Constitutional Convention-to overcome usurpation and to restore God’s Original Plan for America.
