The organization seeks to promote and preserve "real" American values, as opposed to organizations like MoveOn.org. Hanna received his calling due to a lawsuit filed against him by the ACLU in 2001 regarding a plaque engraved with the Ten Commandments hanging in the county courthouse. He lost the suit, the plaque was covered for sixteen months, and then they won on appeal, and the plaque hangs now today.
Says Hanna of the incident, "I learned both how hostile many elites are to religion and also how supportive average people were of our traditions."
