"The Jading of Jamestown" is the story and research (with photos) of how Todd and his rural Californian parishioners rectified the Christian revisions taught on the tours of the Jamestown Settlement, the first English colony in America. You will read how Todd's inquiries and evidence presented from the original charter of the settlement led to a meeting of the historians at Jamestown, and ultimately prompted the changes and proper emphasis upon the Christian purpose of the colony during all official tours. You will read the actual memo that the Jamestown administration and management wrote to its employees regarding how they now are to present the religious purpose of the colony.
NEWS FLASH! Chaplain Todd has been in correspondence with the Executive Director and others at the Jamestown Settlement. Though it took quite extensive media attention (Chaplain Todd's radio interviews and national news reports) to get the ball rolling, the Executive Director was particularly open and helpful at every turn--something not often experienced by Chaplain Todd of other directors of historic sites.

Most of all, remember to ask the Jamestown Settlement guides for the three-fold purpose of the colony when you visit there and assure they're still teaching that the first purpose of the colony as documented in their 1606 charter by King James was for "propagating of Christian religion to such people, as yet live in darkness and miserable ignorance of the true knowledge and worship of God."

The crisis at the first American colony
In 2006 my wife, Tracy, and I joined a group of about 50 from First Covenant Church of Sacramento, including their Senior Pastor, Ted Smith, on a Christian legacy tour of Washington, D.C. and various sites in Virginia. One of the primary purposes of the trip was to rediscover the history and particularly the Christian heritage of America's Founders, early settlements, and nation's capital. Unfortunately the greatest thing we discovered was that our Christian heritage was being abandoned. (I'd like to thank "World Net Daily news" for breaking this revisionist story nationwide.)
The first place we visited on the tour was the Jamestown Settlement, owned and operated by "Jamestown Settlement," owned and operated by the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation for the Commonwealth of Virginia, not to be confused with the adjacent "Historic Jamestowne," co-administered by the National Park Service and the APVA (Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities) -- which will also be addressed in part in this treatise.
While the tour guides at the Jamestown Settlement and Museum were cordial and informative on many points, we were all caught off guard by their unwillingness (yes, unwillingness) to discuss Jamestown's religious roots. As one of the tour guides was leading us through the very heart of the replica of the community, the Anglican Church, we asked if she could speak about the significance of the three religious plaques on the wall in the front of the church: the Lord's Prayer, the Ten Commandments, and the Apostles' Creed (the same are in the Bruton Parish Church in Williamsburg).
Our guide responded to our inquiry by saying that she was "unable to speak about the plaques. We are only allowed to say they are religious plaques." We were noticeably shocked by her comments and challenged her that these were very important in the lives of the colonists, and not educating others about them is a deliberate avoidance and minimizing of Christian history. We were all appalled, and shared so with her, especially understanding that this was an educational tour, on which students from across the country were being taught every week. In fact, it seemed whenever there was an opportunity to address any of the religious characteristics or zeal of this first community, it was avoided. (UPDATE Jan. 2009: At last, on the Jamestown Settlement website's " A Brief History of Jamestown," the religious mission or motive of the colony was added: "converting the Virginia Indians to the Anglican religion"--though it is listed there third in purpose when the actual original 1606 charter listed it as first, which you will see and read further on.).
Another guide repeated on several other occasions that the primary reason the first settlers came here to America was "to make money." In fact, he expected and prodded our group to replicate his three-word answer like a mantra, as he frequently asked us, "And why did these settlers come to America?"
Throughout the tour, we were given absolutely no religious information from Jamestown guides about this first colony in America. Without our own well-educated, informative guides from Christian Legacy Tours (Sacramento), we would have left Jamestown with the impression that these settlers were nothing more than predecessors pressed from the capitalist-greed molds of the 21st century. But were they? The historical evidence shows likewise.

After two years of work together, Todd just completed writing the official autobiography of Chuck Norris' 90-year-old mother, Wilma Norris Knight, as told from her perspective (with over 100 photos throughout). It is simply titled, "Acts of Kindness: My Story."
The foreword was written by her sons, Chuck and Aaron Norris. This is the only biography that Wilma endorses, so don't accept counterfeits. Todd describes Wilma's life and inspirational book as "True Grit meets Grapes of Wrath and Pilgrim's Progress!" More information about its content and publication will be posted soon at www.WilmaNorris.com. For now, it is available only at www.ChuckNorris.com.

While Todd was on "The Next Great Awakening Tour" of various historic sites from Boston to D.C., he and the tour group experienced again the distortions and omissions of America's religious history--this time at the very center of our republic 250 years ago--Independence Hall, where our founders debated and adopted the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. You won't believe how the National Park Service's expert guide on America's founders responded to Todd's question about the founders' religious affiliation! To find out more, check out Todd's story and research rebuttal on this website: "Independence Hall: Independent from God?"
Fidelis Publishing produces an expanded paperback version of Chuck's New York Times bestseller, "Black Belt Patriotism," as well as produces Chuck in a new PSA ("Patriot Service Announcement") in which he discusses the status of America. You can watch it by clicking HERE.
