Freddy’s Fashion Mart Christian Zionist Style: Did John Hagee’s Political Activism Incite Attack On Dayton Ohio Mosque?

Posted by Job on October 1, 2008

Soli Dei Gloria has it. Muslim Children Harmed at Dayton Mosque After “Obsession” DVD Hits Ohio

What a disturbing news story. I never thought to see this type of stuff happening here in the US again: I witnessed the civil rights era on nightly news broadcasts, and in my own ‘backyard’, in the early 60’s…and thought those kind of evil inhumane actions were a thing of the past, especially when coming from segments of US society, not just individuals. Guess I’m either naive or stupid. Perhaps the biggest surprise, personally, is this story comes from a region of the country I’ve lived in all my life: the tri-state area, made up of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. These are my neighbors.

Some background first…

I first became aware of the DVD, mentioned in the news story, being re-distributed and advertised in local newspapers a couple weeks ago when reading at Bill White’s blog, Soul Refuge: RADICAL ISLAM DVD IN MY SUNDAY NEWSPAPER?

Quote..

Here are two images of the DVD that I found in my Sunday newspaper yesterday. Is this a propaganda technique being used by some people to influence the vote before the election?

And then in a news item at AlterNetNews: Newspapers in Swing States Are Delivering Anti-Islam DVDs to Voters

Quote..

Millions of voters in U.S. states crucial to this fall’s presidential election received DVD copies of a controversial documentary film as advertising inserts in their morning newspapers over the past week, with more expected to be sent out over the upcoming weekend.

 

Quote..

The 2006 film, Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West, which has been accused by critics of encouraging Islamophobia, was reportedly delivered, or slated for delivery this weekend, into tens of millions of households in states such as Ohio, Michigan, Florida, Colorado, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Missouri and other “swing states” that don’t vote consistently for either party and usually decide elections.

Gregory Ross, the spokesman for the Clarion group, which produced and is distributing the DVD, told the Harrisburg Patriot-News that the movie was being delivered to 28 million homes throughout the month of September..

read the rest here

The only thing which surprised me about the re-distribution of this film now, prior to an election, wasn’t that its being used for political reasons, but ‘who’ helped finance its re-distribution into 28 million homes..

From We The People:

At least part of the mailing was sent under the postal permit of Christians United for Israel, (CUFA) a leading Christian Zionist organization. Which also seems to have promoted the DVD on This book by David Brog, interesting enough the foreword is by John Hagee

What have we come to in this nation folks? Are we becoming a nation which is producing our own breed of ‘terrorists’, those, who for the sake of trying to win an election are willing to stir up hatred?

I’m disgusted at this story below…and I’m horrified to think that this video being re-distributed ‘might’ have had something to do with this action: ESPECIALLY knowing some group which calls itself ‘Christian’, headed up by apostate John Hagee,  helped get it into the hands of radical nuts.

TalkToActionMuslim Children Gassed at Dayton Mosque After “Obsession” DVD Hits Ohio

Quote..

On Friday, September 26, the end of a week in which thousands of copies ofObsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West — the anti-Muslim documentary being distributed by the millions in swing states via DVDs inserted in major newspapers and through the U.S. mail — were distributed by mail in Ohio, a “chemical irritant” was sprayed through a window of the Islamic Society of Greater Dayton, where 300 people were gathered for a Ramadan prayer service….

I read the story as reported by the Dayton Daily News, but this was after I had received an email written by a friend of some of the victims..

I asked the email’s author for permission to share what they had written. The author was with one of the families from the mosque — a mother and two of the small children who were in the room:

“She told me that the gas was sprayed into the room where the babies and children were being kept while their mothers prayed together their Ramadan prayers. Panicked mothers ran for their babies, crying for their children so they could flee from the gas that was burning their eyes and throats and lungs. She grabbed her youngest in her arms and grabbed the hand of her other daughter, moving with the others to exit the building and the irritating substance there.

“The paramedic said the young one was in shock, and gave her oxygen to help her breathe. The child couldn’t stop sobbing.

“This didn’t happen in some far away place — but right here in Dayton, and to my friends. Many of the Iraqi refugees were praying together at the Mosque Friday evening. People that I know and love.

“I am hurt and angry. I tell her this is NOT America. She tells me this is not Heaven or Hell — there are good and bad people everywhere.

“She tells me that her daughters slept with her last night, the little one in her arms and sobbing throughout the night. She tells me she is afraid, and will never return to the mosque, and I wonder what kind of country is this where people have to fear attending their place of worship?

“The children come into the room, and tell me they want to leave America and return to Syria, where they had fled to from Iraq. They say they like me, … , and other American friends — but they are too afraid and want to leave. Should a 6 and 7 year old even have to contemplate the safety of their living situation?

“Did the anti-Muslim video circulating in the area have something to do with this incident, or is that just a bizarre coincidence? Who attacks women and children?

“What am I supposed to say to them? My words can’t keep them safe from what is nothing less than terrorism, American style. Isn’t losing loved ones, their homes, jobs, possessions and homeland enough? Is there no place where they can be safe?

“She didn’t want me to leave her tonight, but it was after midnight, and I needed to get home and write this to my friends. Tell me — tell me — what am I supposed to say to them?”

On Friday, September 26, the end of a week in which thousands of copies of Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West — the fear-mongering, anti-Muslim documentary being distributed by the millions in swing states via DVDs inserted in major newspapers and through the U.S. mail — were distributed by mail in Ohio, a “chemical irritant” was sprayed through a window of the Islamic Society of Greater Dayton, where 300 people were gathered for a Ramadan prayer service. The room that the chemical was sprayed into was the room where babies and children were being kept while their mothers were engaged in prayers. This, apparently, is what the scare tactic political campaigning of John McCain’s supporters has led to — Americans perpetrating a terrorist attack against innocent children on American soil.
I read the story as reported by the Dayton Daily News, but this was after I had received an email written by a friend of some of the victims of these American terrorists. The matter of fact news report in the Dayton paper didn’t come close to conveying the horrific impact of this unthinkable act like the email I had just read, so I asked the email’s author for permission to share what they had written. The author was with one of the families from the mosque — a mother and two of the small children who were in the room that was gassed — the day after the attack occurred.

“She told me that the gas was sprayed into the room where the babies and children were being kept while their mothers prayed together their Ramadan prayers. Panicked mothers ran for their babies, crying for their children so they could flee from the gas that was burning their eyes and throats and lungs. She grabbed her youngest in her arms and grabbed the hand of her other daughter, moving with the others to exit the building and the irritating substance there.

“What am I supposed to say to them? My words can’t keep them safe from what is nothing less than terrorism, American style. Isn’t losing loved ones, their homes, jobs, possessions and homeland enough? Is there no place where they can be safe?

“She didn’t want me to leave her tonight, but it was after midnight, and I needed to get home and write this to my friends. Tell me — tell me — what am I supposed to say to them?”

When acting as a representative of Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), the 501(c)3 non-profit organization that I work for, I cannot engage in political activities. The distribution ofObsession, however, although a political campaign scheme, clearly crosses over into the mission of MRFF. So, I’m going to make two statements here — one in my capacity as MRFF’s Research Director, and another as an individual whose disgust at the vile campaign tactics of John McCain’s supporters completely boiled over when I opened up the email about children being gassed.

My statement as MRFF’s Research Director:

The presidential campaign edition of the Obsession DVD, currently being distributed by the Clarion Fund, carries the endorsement of the chair of the counter-terrorism department of the U.S. Naval War College, using the name and authority of an official U.S. military institution not only to validate an attack the religion of Islam, but to influence a political campaign. For these reasons, this endorsement has been included in MRFF’s second lawsuit against the Department of Defense, which was filed on September 25 in the Federal District Court in Kansas.

My opinion as an individual and thoroughly appalled human being:

John McCain has a moral obligation to publicly censure the Clarion Fund, the organization that produced Obsession and is distributing the DVDs; to denounce the inflammatory, anti-Muslim message of Obsession; and to do everything in his power to stop any further campaign activities by his supporters that have the potential to incite violence.

I’m so disgusted right now about the many issues this story entails, –the ‘who’ and the ‘why’ and the ‘what’…I just don’t have anything more to say…

Sarah Palin’s Corporate Welfare Proposal For Gigantic Natural Gas Pipeline

Posted by Job on August 29, 2008

As one who recognizes that we would never have nuclear power or much of anything else in our modern lifestyle were it not for government (or government funded) research, I have little principled opposition to this. Instead, I just find it odd how global economic interests keep popping up with people running for the White House. In this case, soon to be vice president Sarah Palin tried to give $500 million to a CANADIAN company to build a natural gas pipeline through her state. Another story on this called the pipeline project the biggest public works project in the history of this country! 

This is a pretty good indication that Palin is cut from the same cloth as Bush, Bush II, Clinton, and Reagan in being willing to transfer our tax dollars and natural resources and control thereof into the hands of the global economic and political conglomerates. As a matter of fact, this article compares her with Hugo Chavez

Now connect the dots here. There is this big push to get us off oil though we have enough proven oil reserves to last for at least the next 70 years. What are they trying to get us to transfer to? Natural gas in our cars. So here pops up this T. Boone Pickens fellow to run ads from now to November “from his own money” to promote windmills to create electricity instead of natural gas so that we can instead start putting the natural gas in cars. Why? To reduce our dependency on foreign oil. When we have PLENTY of our own oil!?!? And so the future vice president cut this deal to provide this huge conduit for natural gas through her state that will be of great strategic importance. But instead of paying $650 million to help an AMERICAN company do it, she pays $500 million to help a CANADIAN company do it? Will the CANADIANS have a stake, a controlling interest, in this pipeline as well? If so, this sounds very “North American Union” ish to you, doesn’t it? (See this story by a CANADIAN paper titled North American union warrants discussion) I suppose that the social conservatives and evangelical Christians that so in love with McCain over his Rick Warren performance and picking a woman with five kids are ready to start spending their ameros? 

Well you evangelicals, you might want to reconsider. The economic and political union of Canada would mean our assimilating certain points of Canadian law. Well, right now, Christians are being sued and thrown in jail in Canada for stating that homosexuality is a sin and Islam is false. Evangelicals, do not think that Palin will have your side, because she supports gay rights. This article states: Although she’s a social conservative who opposes abortion and gay marriage, Palin signed into law a state bill giving benefits to same-sex couples. Since social conservatives supported the 100% pro homosexual George W. Bush administration, that should be changed from “although she is a social conservative” to BECAUSE she’s a social conservative. Seriously, homosexuals have advanced further in the GOP than blacks have. 

So, evangelical Christians fattening frogs for the anti – Christ snake by rushing to support this Palin woman (I heard the folks on Christian talk radio embracing her already … one fellow called in to say that Obama is not a true Christian, while that is factually accurate the context should be AS IF THE BACKSTABBING LYING CHEAT MCCAIN IS!?!?), do not think that she will advocate you when in order to conform to the global consensus it becomes illegal to repeat what the Bible says about homosexuality or about law and order (the illegal immigrant invasion from Mexico) or about economic justice. Nope, she and her boss McCain will turn the lot of you in and sell you out just as quickly as Obama will.

Christians, I recall a former Republican state representative hosting a Christian radio political show; the fellow was betrayed and turned out of office by his party mates for standing up to and exposing the wickedness of his party (including their clear collusion with the other side). The fellow stated that he believes that the new world order globalists really don’t care which party wins the White House … so long as they get to pick the nominees. The people who control the media and the purse strings made sure that the nominees would be limited to people like Clinton, Romney, McCain, and Obama. After that field was set, they just sat back and watched the show as if it were a professional wrestling match or football game. I suppose that it was compelling and entertaining in an odd sort of way, to see the pathetic spectacle of people falling over themselves, selling their bodies and souls for a title and a little bit of power. But since Judas Iscariot sold God in the flesh, Jesus Christ, for a few pieces of silver why should be surprised at what man will do in his totally depraved state? 

But what is surprising and sad is how so many people with the title “Bible – believing born again Christians” are like Saul when they are consenting to this madness. I go back to the scene of Stephen’s stoning in Acts. The narrative never stated that Saul himself threw a stone. It merely said that Saul was consenting to the death of Stephen. So, while these evangelical Christians are not going to be committing the evil acts of McCain, Biden, Palin, or Obama, they will be consenting to it with their votes and other measures of support. That is why we must intercede, people. We must intercede with our prayers. We must intercede with our works. We must intercede with our words. We must intercede with our love. We must stop our born again Christian brothers and sisters from furthering the anti – Christ agenda with their actions and hearts. 

Christianity was indeed born in the Roman Empire. Paul, the very same one that consented to the death of the first Christian martyr, acting as Christianity’s first systematic theologian did tell us to submit to proper authorities in Romans 13. But Christians in the early church refrained from burning incense to Caesar even under the pain of torture and death! Let us pray that people such as the ones below open their eyes to the wickedness that is going on and stop rooting for it. I am of the opinion that choosing sides between Obama and McCain and supporting one or the other is the same as deciding which director, movie, or actor to support in the awards ceremony that they have for the pornographic movie industry and then going out and buying whatever movie wins. How ironic that the very Christians that would never go near the “best adult movie” award winner are going to gladly willingly go pull the the lever for people whose hearts (with their words and works as evidence thereof) are just as wicked in November. And yes, this applies to you Christians planning on supporting idolator in chief anti – Christ superstar wannabe Barack HUSSEIN Obama as well. 

Wow! Palin is great! I just became a McCain supporter!

Update: turns out that the fight between Georgia and Russia where we so quickly intervened because of our commitment to human rights, freedom, and humanitarianism (yeah right) was actually over control of a huge NATURAL GAS pipeline. So Russia (and Georgia) knows what is up even if our own citizens, including Christians that are supposed to be discerning of the times, are clueless.

Black Leaders Reject Incontrovertible Evidence Of The Racist Origins Of Gun Control Laws!

Posted by Job on August 23, 2008

Of course, there is a reason why of all the hate crimes committed against blacks, the Camilla Massacre is the one that black leaders would rather not speak of! Why? Because blacks were murdered over the right to possess firearms! Understand this: the right to possess firearms which one would use to defend himself and other innocent people is basic to a society that values and promotes law, order, and justice. Black leaders are part and parcel of the anti – Christ cabal that desires lawlessness, disorder, and injustice, a climate where the innocent will be victimized. Such people promote the notion that the government will protect us while knowing full well that a government which rejects the very concept of truth and right and wrong will be the single biggest force of oppression, injustice, and victimization. Indeed, the very same people who claim that we do not need guns because the government will protect us are also the ones who agitate against police officers and district attorneys so that they will allow violent criminals, even those that victimize and violate women and children in the most heinous and grotesque manner imaginable, go unpunished! It is the ultimate deception: on one hand these people demand that we give up our guns and rely on the government to protect us from criminals, and on the other hand these very same individuals not only petition but coerce the government into refusing to enforce the law and allowing these criminals to roam our streets with no fear of deterrent or reprisal! Evil such as this is brought to you by the same ACLU mindset that advocates for child molesters!

So people out there, read this below and realize that Barack Hussein Obama is on their side. Of course, John Sidney McCain is too, for never forget that McCain supports rewarding the lawless invasion of illegal immigrant criminals with amnesty, as well as the illegal undeclared war in Iraq. As a matter of fact, McCain is brazenly using his volunteering for the similarly illegal undeclared war in Viet Nam, an action which he himself admitted that he was not seeking to honor or follow the will of God in taking up, as his primary qualification for president! That and his position on the illegal undeclared war in Iraq! And yes, both candidates are bought and paid for lock stock barrel and crumb by the same cabal of lawless bankers, financiers, profiteers, speculators, and corporate raiders that have been looting Wall Street, the federal treasury, pension plans, and your own pockets without any threat or possibility of punishment. Look at the list of the big contributors to McCain and Obama, Democrats and Republicans, and you will see so many of the same names! So when we have candidates that are not only openly brazenly committed to lawlessness, BUT ARE USING THEIR COMMITMENT TO LAWLESSNESS AS THEIR PRIMARY QUALIFICATIONS FOR THE HIGHEST OFFICE IN THE LAND, how could you even THINK of voting for either one?

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Friday, August 22, 2008

Guns-rights advocates want to change a state firearms law that they say has a racist past.

But black lawmakers say those advocates are using the story of a Reconstruction-era massacre of African-Americans to justify letting Georgians tote weapons in churches and other public places.

Next month is the 140th anniversary of the Camilla Massacre, when a group largely made up of blacks heading to a Southwest Georgia Republican political rally were shot up by white locals after being warned not to bring guns to town.

Gun-rights advocates say the September 1868 massacre, in which at least nine freedmen were killed and up to 25-30 were wounded, led the General Assembly to ban citizens from carrying firearms at political rallies and other “public gatherings.” The aim, they say, was to keep guns away from blacks.

“It was entirely about race,” said Ed Stone, president of GeorgiaCarry.org.

But many African-American lawmakers don’t see the “public gatherings” law as a civil rights issue. In fact, at the Capitol, black lawmakers have been some of the leading backers of gun-control legislation over the years.

One, Sen. Vincent Fort (D-Atlanta), called GeorgiaCarry’s use of the Camilla massacre “deeply offensive.”

“It’s very cynical, even more-so when you understand that in many African-American demographics, gun homicides are the number one cause of death,” Fort said. “To have these people use the history of discrimination against African-Americans going back 140 years to say this is why we need to have guns in churches, restaurants and schools …. where is this going to end?

GeorgiaCarry.org led the charge during the 2008 session to pass legislation allowing Georgians with carry licenses to take guns on MARTA, into restaurants and state parks. They are battling city of Atlanta officials in court over a ban on guns in non-secure areas of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. The next target may be churches and college campuses.

Earlier this month the group made a presentation to a Senate committee that will consider legislation for the 2009 session that would likely loosen the “public gatherings” section of state law, allowing Georgians with licenses to carry firearms in more places. During the meeting, Stone told lawmakers about the Camilla Massacre.

The incident has been called one of most violent episodes of Reconstruction.

It happened after the white-dominated General Assembly expelled 32 black legislators. One of them, Philip Joiner, helped lead a march Sept. 19, 1868, of several hundred blacks and a few whites to Camilla to attend a Republican political rally. Some were armed with walking sticks, shotguns and other various firearms, according to historical accounts of the event.

When the procession was a few miles outside of town, the local sheriff warned them not to come to town with firearms. The marchers told the sheriff they meant no harm and continued on. posse of armed white townsmen gathered to await the group.

When the marchers arrived, they were met by a posse of armed white townsmen, who opened fire. The white Republicans and freedmen fled, but the sheriff’s men pursued them, shooting the freedmen as they tried to escape, according to the state histories. State officials blamed the marchers for defying the sheriff’s order not to bring guns to town.

Two years later, the General Assembly passed legislation prohibiting citizens from carrying guns into places of public worship, court, voting precincts or other “public gatherings.”

E.R. Lanier, a Georgia State University law professor who teaches Georgia legal history, said historical documents connecting the massacre with the gun law from that time are limited. But, he said, ” There is a connection, there is no doubt about it.”

While that may be true, Rep. Tyrone Brooks (D-Atlanta), a longtime civil rights activist, said it’s dishonest for groups like GeorgiaCarry to use “horrible stories to justify why the Legislature and the courts should allow for easier access to guns.

“It’s very disingenuous and it is not appropriate to link these horrible massacres to what they are doing in 2008,” Brooks said. “We need less guns on the street rather than more guns. If you took the guns off the street, particularly in African-American, Hispanic and poor white communities, the homicides would drop dramatically.”

Sen. Chip Rogers (R-Woodstock), a member of the Senate gun-laws study committee, supports giving more freedom to Georgians with carry licenses. He said the arguments about gun violence don’t hold water because Georgians who go through background checks to get the licenses generally aren’t the ones committing crimes.

“The gun violence that is occurring there is not happening with the people who are going through background checks, it’s happening with people who already have a criminal history,” Rogers said. “If they have a criminal history, particularly a violent criminal history, then we don’t want them carrying a weapon.”

Rogers called the Camilla massacre a sad piece of Georgia history that resulted in the “public gathering” law.

“Law enforcement back then thought you ought to disarm African-Americans,” Rogers said. “Now we are seeing people arguing about the same thing. If they are law-abiding citizens, regardless of what color they are, they ought to be able to protect themselves.”

Knoxville Liberal Unitarian Church Shooter Jim Adkisson IS AN ATHEIST WHO HATES RELIGION!

Posted by Job on July 28, 2008

More here from WorldNetDaily, who beat me to the punch by 20 minutes (grr!) and GetReligion who beat me by 15 (grr grr!). Is that what the media is reporting? NO! They are reporting that Adkisson targeted this unitarian universalist church because Adkisson hates liberals in stories like this (see link). Also, CNN’s report is more of the same. From there, they allow people to presume that Adkisson is a fundamentalist Christian. Not because, mind you, that there is a pattern of fundamentalist Christians doing things like this. Do you know why? BECAUSE THERE ISN’T! The famous hate crime committers in America, the killers of people like James Byrd, Tina Brandon (Brandon Teena), and Matthew Shepard were not Christians. Timothy McVeigh was not a Christian. Neither is Eric Rudolph. No, it is the media and left wing types who do all they can to make you THINK that they are Christians. This includes, for instance, the JUDGE in Eric Rudolph’s trial, who from the bench admonished him for “breaking the law because of his faith.” The media actually frequently claimed that it was North Carolina fundamentalist Christians that helped Rudolph hide from and avoid the authorities for so long – that he was a hero among, you know, the Jesse Helms crowd, for his attacks on abortion clinics and homosexual night clubs – and when Rudolph set the record straight in interviews after his capture, THEY REFUSED TO REPORT IT!

But look here, buried in this USA Today item below – and it is not even in most other news outlets – is the truth:

“Karen Massey, who lived two houses from Adkisson’s home, told the Knoxville News Sentinel of a lengthy conversation she had with Adkisson a couple years ago after she told him her daughter had just graduated from Johnson Bible College. She said she ended up having to explain to him that she was a Christian. “He almost turned angry,” she told the newspaper. “He seemed to get angry at that. He said that everything in the Bible contradicts itself if you read it.” Massey said Adkisson talked frequently about his parents, who “made him go to church all his life. … He acted like he was forced to do that.” 

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the media to do much with this angle … and that is those who will even report it at al. Just like they didn’t report that Timothy McVeigh was an ATHEIST. Similar to founder of the hate group “World Church of the Creator” Matt Hale (whose follower murdered former basketball coach Rickey Birdsong in a rage over Hale’s being denied an Illinois law license), McVeigh rejected the Bible because it teaches that all people are equal. Eric Rudolph also rejected the Bible, and freely admitted that his decision to become a terrorist was influenced by anti – God philosophers like Friedrich Nietzsche (of the “God is dead” fame)! Dylan Harris and Eric Klebold of Columbine? Atheists. Also, an extremely underreported item during the late 1990s was when an atheist walked into a Southern Baptist youth event in Texas and started killing people before committing suicide … his last words were “What you people believe is @#$%!” Despite being asked to do so by Congress, attorney general Janet Reno refused to even consider investigating it as a hate crime. (Reno’s department also sent out a memo claiming that people who went to church more than once a week … people just like the ones that this atheist murdered … were exhibiting extremist cult behavior and should be monitored by the federal government … when a stink was raised over the memo Reno’s justice department withdrew it.) And the teenage shooter of Ted Haggard’s former church in Colorado was a fellow that had rejected Christianity. 

The amazing thing is that even in this USA Today comment thread, you have tons of people attributing this fellow’s actions to Christianity. Why? Because of this same media. The oped columnists and news writers continually talk about THE POSSIBILITY of fundamentalist Christians being violent. These folks know full well that this only actually occurred in rare and isolated acts of violence against abortion doctors and clinics. I recall that when John Ashcroft – not a fundamental Christian mind you – was having his confirmation hearings for attorney general, one of the main reasons the media gave for opposing him was the idea that it would send a signal to violent pro – lifers that they could start back bombing clinics and killing doctors and women, and that Ashcroft would not prosecute them. The truth is that the last three cases of pro – life activists committing violence was in 1996 (the atheist Rudolph), 1993 (Pensacola, Florida) and 1992 (Buffalo New York). Even during the 1970s and 1980s incidents of violence were extremely rare, yet the news media and popular entertainment presented it as constant threats. 

And I did mention popular entertainment, correct? Movies, TV shows, and novels frequently present fundamental Christians as committing politically or religious motivated violence. Not only do several such come out each year, but we have had at least one horror movie featuring a fundamentalist Christian depicted as a serial killer (“Frailty”) and an X – Files episode depicting the same. There are tons of other examples … as a matter of fact killer Christians are practically a staple on the long – running “Law And Order” TV series, depicted almost as often as drug dealers, gang members, and mobsters. 

So after 30 years of being conditioned to view Christians as violent, it is no shock that people immediately jump to conclusions. Keep in mind: THIS IS DESPITE THERE BEING NO FACTUAL BASIS FOR THIS! There are no statistics backing this belief, there are also no sensationalized public instances of Christians going on violent rampages with political or religious motivations. There were a few loners in the pro – life movement two decades ago (legal trials PROVED that the criminals were not affiliated with the pro – life organizations, but they went ahead and bankrupted Operation Rescue and started prosecuting pro – lifers under the RICO statute anyway … please note that civil rights, gay rights, feminist, and other leftist agitator groups were NEVER prosecuted under RICO!), Klu Klux Klan related violence (and the KKK was much more of a fraternal and freemason outfit than an actual Christian one … WHAT CHRISTIAN WOULD BURN A CROSS?) and that is it. As evil as their crimes were, they do not constitute a basis for people to believe that Christians are prone to politically and religious motivated acts of violence (or other words, TERRORISM). But that is what the media and Hollywood want you to believe, and in the minds of most Americans, they have already succeeded.

The Larry King Story: Why Evangelizing All Children With The Message Of Jesus Christ Is A Must!

Posted by Job on July 20, 2008

From Newsweek we see the problem of a neglected, abused, and mentally ill teenager who exhibited sexually aggressive tendencies towards his male junior high school classmates and is killed by one of them: 

Young, Homosexual and Murdered

From Child Evangelism Fellowship, the world’s oldest, largest, and most successful child evangelism ministry (and yes they are Reformed/Calvinistic!) we see the solution: the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Child Evangelism Fellowship Videos

Folks, we have to get the gospel of Jesus Christ out to children. It is now legal to proselytize children in to homosexuality in public schools (gay clubs, gay pride month, gay is great sex education classes, etc.), which means that soon it will be ILLEGAL to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with children ANYWHERE (child experts all basically agree that it constitutes improper indoctrination, brainwashing, child abuse, etc. EVEN WHEN PARENTS RAISE THEIR OWN CHILDREN UP IN THE FAITH!)

And incidentally, kids like Brandon McInerney – who viciously murdered an innocent human being in cold blood, an abomination in the sight of the Lord and a violation of the Ten Commandments given to Israel through Moses and the universal covenant given to all mankind through Noah – need the gospel of Jesus Christ as well. Remember: God only destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah with fire and brimstone because of the abomination of homosexuality, BUT HE DESTROYED THE WHOLE WORLD WITH THE FLOOD BECAUSE OF THE ABOMINATION OF VIOLENCE AND MURDER.

Washington DC Pro – Homosexual Episcopal Leader Calls Biblical Christians Demonic!

Posted by Job on July 17, 2008

Normally liberal Christians like the Episcopals do not even acknowledge that demons exist. They have totally despiritualized their interpretation of the Bible, claiming that accounts of demonic possessions were actually mental or physical diseases, and that Jesus Christ’s healing accounts were allegories. They also claim that other things in the Bible referring to good, evil, final judgment, etc. merely speak of social, political, and economic conditions. But now you see what takes them out of their mold. Last year a prominent Christian liberal – and a hateful critic of Biblical Christians – who previously denied the existence of sin or God’s judgment decided that JUST MAYBE global warming was God’s wrath being poured out against big business. So he modified his position that there was no sin and no judgment to say “well I guess sin and judgment exist after all FOR THE RICH.” And now you have this guy, who attributes opposition to homosexuality to evil spirits. This really shows how angry and vicious these people are getting against those that oppose the sin of homosexuality. They have really gotten to the point where they have decided that even having civil discussions with those that disagree is impossible. According to them, people that oppose homosexuality are not only wrong but evil, and not worthy of any consideration save what it takes to ban, censure, and punish them. I have to tell you, once gay marriage becomes legal and hate crimes laws are enacted, opposition to homosexuality will rapidly become an untenable position for anyone to hold in respectable mainstream society. The reason is that government, media, and the elite universities have become so powerful that rather than responding to and reflecting the needs and the will of the people, they lead on virtually every issue and people just follow. And yes, this includes the church. Again, I do not like to use this term that I see on the websites of some of my more bold Christian brothers, but with regard to following whatever is popular and acceptable in mainstream culture, many Christians have in fact become “SHEEPLE.” The reason is that Christianity has now become just another product that you can buy, sell, and COMPARISON SHOP, and you can have it either buffet, a la carte, fast food, gourmet, stir – fried, or even sushied. I am not saying that most evangelical churches will become pro – homosexual the instant President John McCain signs San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi’s hate crimes bill and his veto of the Defense of Marriage Act. No, evangelicalism will do as they have done everything else as it has become inconvenient in the public sphere: THEY WILL STOP TALKING ABOUT IT! Case in point: I have a book from the “Counterpoints” series where prominent theologians debate an issue whose subject was the lake of fire (or hell). All of the theologians agreed that evangelical pastors had ceased talking about the subject, and that when the publishers of the book were looking for someone to represent the orthodox Biblical doctrine on the matter, NO ONE WANTED TO DO IT! The only one willing to step up and do so was a single very old (and indeed since passed away) Baptist preacher and former seminary president. And when was this book published? 1994! Almost 15 years ago! So 15 years ago you had all of these political evangelical leaders more than willing to publicly criticize Bill Clinton’s adultery before the TV cameras, but none who were willing to preach about the lake of fire before their own congregations. So 15 years from now, how many leading conservative pastors will be willing to speak out against homosexuality? My guess is that you will ask them, and they will shift uncomfortably, avert their eyes, and reply “the Bible and Christian tradition are clear on such matters” and let that be that! And yes, the reason why they will take that approach is because they don’t want to endure the sort of things said against them contained in the link below. And please do not think that I am just some homophobic bashing homosexuals. The REAL issue here, the REAL stakes, is the inerrancy and authority of scripture. THAT is what John Chane was speaking of. 

I think it’s really very dangerous when someone stands up and says: ‘I have the way and I have the truth and I know how to interpret holy scripture and you are following what is the right way,'” he said “It’s really very, very dangerous and I think it’s demonic. The Episcopal church has been demonised. It has been a punching bag, and I’m sick of being a punching bag as a bishop and I’m sick of my church, my province being a punching bag.”

What this fellow is saying is that insisting on a particular interpretation of scripture is evil, because in his view scripture should have no authority over the church. The church can use whatever verses that it finds convenient to reinforce their philosophical platitudes, but that is it. So, the view is going to soon be that declaring the Bible to be the unique and final revelation of God to man is evil and dangerous. And guess what? The “third wave” charismatics led by Todd Bentley agree. This neo – Montanist sect (which incidentally has totally rejected the piety of the original Montanists) are trying their best to instigate a civil war between sola scriptura Christians and those who believe in continuous revelation. Why? Sola scriptura in their demon and confusion addled minds will hinder the worldwide revival that will fulfill the great commission and cause the rapture (clue pre – tribulation dispensationalism). In other words, they are trying to fulfill the ambitions of their founder William Seymour of Azusa Street. And who do these folks have on their side? Why, the “Jesus Christ had to be born again” and “if you want to see God look in the mirror” Word of Faith/prosperity people! Fred Price, whose newest title sequence proudly proclaims that he was the ORIGINAL Word of Faith/prosperity teacher before all of these “new school” guys like TD Jakes, Joel Osteen, Paula White, and Joyce Meyer came out and started stealing his thunder, has been anointed as an APOSTLE by Todd Bentley. That link is from Soli Deo Gloria. PJ Miller is sola scriptura, too, so he is one of the people that these new wave Pentecostals, the Word of Faith/prosperity people, and the liberal Christians are at the moment going after because of his fidelity to the truth, infallibility, and final authority of scripture. But Psalm 1 talks about what is going to happen to those people! Pay particular attention to verse 5! Oh yes, and don’t forget about Psalm 2! The mighty day of the Lord is coming, and on that day it will clearly be revealed who is on the Lord’s side. Those who are NOT on the Lord’s side will not only be the ones who reject His Son through His Word AND those who CLAIM to accept it BUT WILL NOT PUBLICLY DEFEND IT. Are you a sheep or are you SHEEPLE? TODAY is the time to take your stand, because I have to tell you, tomorrow is not promised to you! And this is not to defend Omar Khadr (other than to point out that he clearly should have been treated according to the Geneva Convention) but I cannot help but thinking that the data that the government is using on him and all of the rest of their Guantanamo Bay human guinea pigs, doing all of these tests on them to learn about the human mind and gain all sorts of “valuable data”, is going to be used on Biblical Christians one day. Well, Christians, if you won’t open your mouth in defense of the faith today, you won’t be able to stand up to torture like this tomorrow.

Strong Tower Bible Church Pastor Condemns Noose And Racist Graffiti Incident At Franklin Tennessee Middle School

Posted by Job on March 3, 2008

Noose, graffiti prompt concern at Franklin school | www.tennessean.com | The Tennessean

A noose and graffiti have school administrators in Franklin worried about students, and parents worried about the school’s urgency in reporting the incident. Students at Poplar Grove Middle School will receive a lesson on hate crimes Monday after school administrators found a noose and graffiti in a school bathroom earlier this month.

The assembly, scheduled to be held by Franklin police at 9:30 this morning, comes nearly too late for Rev. Chris Williamson, whose son Dante attends the school. “It’s an injustice,” said Williamson, pastor of Strong Tower Bible Church in Franklin. “What needs to happen so this doesn’t happen again?” (My answer: preaching the gospel to sinners, including racists.)
School officials discovered the noose, made from a small piece of string, and graffiti containing a racial epithet in a seventh- and eighth-grade boys’ bathroom on Feb. 1. Poplar Grove Middle principal Vanessa Garcia didn’t immediately report the incident to police because there was no pressing danger to students, said David Snowden, director of the Franklin Special School District. The noose and graffiti were removed from the bathroom.
“The only thing we could have done differently would have been to send a letter home, but you can’t have parents up there investigating it,” Snowden said. Snowden said a police report was later filed, but he did not recall when. A permission slip for the assembly was sent home with seventh- and eighth-graders on Friday, and the district sent out a phone message to parents Sunday.

The 400-student middle school teaches fifth through eighth grades and accepts students through an application process. Preference is given to siblings of current students and minority applicants, Snowden said. Snowden feared minority enrollment at the school, which is 13 percent black, could suffer as a result of the incident. “I hope that doesn’t happen, because we want a positive experience for all students in all schools,” Snowden said.

Williamson, who is black, plans to hold a meeting of his own on Tuesday evening at his church, with a prayer vigil to follow. “It’s very unfortunate in so many ways,” Williamson said. “We’re saddened and grieved that it happened.” (Grieved enough to preach the gospel? Did you have that same grief before? Seriously, we have to hold all Christians accountable.)

Although the incident will be considered a zero tolerance offense, the school district does not have a specific policy in addressing racially motivated crimes. District and school administrators will develop a specific procedure in the near future for reporting such crimes, Snowden said. Snowden said that if any students were identified as culprits in the Poplar Grove incident, they would be expelled. (Seems like they have a policy then. It would be interesting to know if the same policy is in effect for, say, assaulting a school official or another student, being caught with drugs, or continually disrupting class with your behavior. Do they hold assemblies in this instance? Do the media and clergy get involved in those cases too? Do not get me wrong, I am happy that this pastor is taking a strong stand against the sin of racism affecting this public school. I just want to know if he takes similar stands against other sins.)

Homosexual Choir Director Of Barack Obama And Oprah Winfrey Church Murdered And Gay Rights Activists Attempt To Exploit It!

Posted by Job on December 27, 2007

His name was Donald Young, and he was 47. Local black homosexual activists are noting that another gay man was killed within the past several weeks and are demanding that attention be brought to their murders, suggesting that homosexuals are being targeted in hate crimes. Of course, heterosexual black men that get murdered in Chicago and virtually everywhere else all the time have no one to advocate for justice in their cases and as a result are largely ignored. But the “homosexuals being targeted in hate crimes” angle is already breaking down. Robbery appears to the the motive in the case of Young while the mother of the other dead man, Larry Bland, states that he was likely a victim in a crime of passion. This reminds me of these same black gay rights activists claiming that the murders of four black Delaware State University students in Newark this summer was a hate crime merely because at least one of the victims was homosexual. They continued to press this angle even after it came out that the criminal in the case chose his victims at random and did not know anything about them.

While actual hate crimes against homosexuals do occur, and the Bible does declare both hatred and violence to be just as sinful as is homosexuality, these folks have no interest in punishing those that commit hate crimes against homosexuals and preventing more from occurring in the future. Instead, they are attempting to use the media and ultimately the political and legal process to push their agenda. The fact is that there is no evidence of an increase in violent crimes against homosexuals, and there certainly is no evidence that such crimes are organized in any fashion. There is no basis to claim that “black gay men are being targeted because of their lifestyle” to the media every time that a gay black man is murdered or assaulted.

Incidentally, this tactic is precisely the opposite of the general way that civil rights and other liberal leaders demand that the media treats black victims of crime. From the 1970s to the early 1980s, black leaders demanded that the media and the police show extra attention to the crime and other problems in the black neighborhoods using the logic that because of racism the lives and plight of black people were not valued and their stories were being ignored. At the time, the thought was that doing so would create public sympathy and an added incentive for the largely liberal leadership at the time to spend more on social programs.

That was then. After the “Reagan revolution”, however, black leaders saw how successfully the GOP was using race – baiting Willie Horton tactics to create or play upon mostly irrational and unfounded fears in white voters to win elections (yes, I have seen the crime statistics and they state that a white person is far more likely to be injured in a car accident than by a black criminal) so the black left demanded that the media stop covering the so – called “black on black crime” on the grounds that it was creating racist stereotypes of black men. Pretty soon, such folks actually began to claim that blacks were committing crimes because the news media portrayed them as criminals!

Well now, we have come full circle. Please realize that just as it has been fully accepted in the media and academia that homosexuality is genetic (the bothersome fact that anything resembling a “gay gene” has never been found and researchers admit, when pressed, that it never will be) it has similarly been established that AIDS is spread not primarily through sexual intercourse and drug needles but rather because of homophobia. So when it became time to finally deal with the fact that the black community has a much higher rate of AIDS infections than the white one, the accepted explanation became “the black community is SOOOO much more homophobic than the white one.” Again, not a shred of evidence, not even any of the sham opinion polls or sociological studies that purports to be a sort of evidence in these days, has been produced to demonstrate this. But since we cannot attribute AIDS to, you know, people having sex, even the fact that the AIDS plague in the black community correlates to A) the teen pregnancy and illegitimacy rates and B) the other sexually transmitted diseases is not allowed to be spoken of.

Of course, the black people that are responsible for this (nonexistent) tidal wave of homophobia in the black community are not the black homosexuals themselves, but rather the black HETEROSEXUALS that are blamed for the bigotry. (And to think that one of the main goals of the black power/civil rights movements was to prevent one group of blacks from being set against another. Ah well, as stated earlier, that was then. I bet that Andrew Sullivan, Matt Drudge, David Brock, and other such white conservative homosexuals view homosexual blacks choosing their lifestyle over their race as representing some sort of progress.) And since we are talking about VIOLENT CRIME HERE … well there you have it. The black gay rights activists are using the same Willie Horton racist stereotypes of criminally violent heterosexual black men to make their “black gays are being targeted in a wave of homophobic hate crimes” story believable despite the fact that it is clearly not true.

Ultimately, we should not be surprised. I should point out that I personally left the “conservative” camp, but the dirty little secret of the left has always been how they are willing to demagogue and demonize black males when it suits their interests. The most effective at doing it – and they are NEVER held accountable – are feminists, who have been using black males as their foils ever since Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Staton, and similar went about letting people know what an outrage it was that black males could vote but white females could not. The 19th Amendment would have passed eventually, but the race – baiting sped that process up by several decades. And of course you had Margaret Sanger, whose racist views (appreciated by none other than Adolph Hitler) and her “what if your daughter were raped by a black man?” propaganda was vital to creating the climate that led to Roe v. Wade. (Keep in mind that Ronald Reagan himself signed the nation’s most liberal abortion law as governor of California during a time when everyone was absolutely convinced that angry criminal blacks from Compton, Watts, South Central, etc. were going to take over the whole state with Tom Bradley as their leader.)

A more recent manifestation of this was the welfare reform debates of the 1980s and 1990s. Books like “The Women of Brewster Place”, “The Color Purple”, “Beloved”, “Waiting To Exhale”, etc. did not just all of a sudden become all the rage for critics and academia out of nowhere and for no reason, but rather to press the case that black women and children needed Great Society programs to protect them from black men. Ironically the latter backfired, convincing the very moderate white voters that they were trying to influence that tough on crime measures and welfare reform was the way to help black women and children! Yet they went to the well one last time in the early years of the Bush administration in their attempts to stop Wade F. Horn’s “pro – marriage initiatives” by not so subtly suggesting that the result would be the government financially pressuring women to marry black men that would beat them and molest their children.

So the black gay rights groups are merely using to their advantage what other groups have successfully used in the past. And why not? If it works, why change? It is not as if homosexuals have any vested interests in the fates of HETEROSEXUAL black males anyway.  Truthfully black homosexuals share no more of a common interests with black heterosexuals than do feminists, and there is no reason to pretend otherwise.

Yule New York Yule Holiday Display Vandalized! Police Declare It A Hate Crime! Part Of War On Christmas???

Posted by Job on December 12, 2007

Then again, according to this link and the text pasted (along with my commentary in italics) below, it was a PAGAN display. Then again, Christmas IS Yuletime or Yuletide you know. Which makes this display … oh never mind 🙂 http://www.wivb.com/global/story.asp?s=747915

Police in Olean are investigating the vandalism of a holiday display. Police say someone opposed to a Wiccan pentacle decided to express his or her opinion by running it down Monday night and then sped off into the night. Olean Mayor David Carucci says the vandalism happened around 10:15 last night. (Sooo … do mayors get involved in minor incidents of vandalism of private property often? Or only when witches are involved?)

“Someone has backed up over the curb and run over the pentacle,” Carucci told News 4. Carucci is quick to criticize the action, and is hopeful police will soon find the person responsible. (No problem there. Since we are not in Old Testament Israel, we have no right to take down the groves and high places. In other words, vandalism is a crime and a sin.) Police, meanwhile, are treating it as a hate crime. (NOW we have a problem!)

“We’re going to be treating this as a hate crime,” said Olean Police Chief Terry Schnell. “This has gone far too long, this is getting ridiculous.” (You mean the fact that of all these church shootings by people who stated animosity towards Christianity and Christians where people have actually been killed such as the one that happened a few days ago, not one of them have been declared hate crimes is ridiculous? No, wait, that wasn’t what you were talking about. You were speaking of the horrific violence inflicted upon a pagan display. Sorry. Good to know that you have your priorities in order and care about what is really important.)

The pentacle stood only a few feet away from a nativity scene that sparked a public debate about the separation of church and state. (Too easy. No comment.)

The owner of the pentacle, April Garlow, says as long as the nativity scene remains on public ground in front of Olean city hall, so too shall the symbol of her Wiccan faith. (And you know what? I agree 100%! I also agree with WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT CHRISTIANS HAVING NO RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS OR GRAVEN IMAGES! IF CHRISTIANS WERE TO OBEY THE THIRD COMMANDMENT, DEUTERONOMY 5:8, WE WOULD NOT BE HAVING ANY OF THESE PROBLEMS! And modern Jews … no better. Remember the nonsense at the Seattle airport awhile back where a rabbi activist demanded that a menorah be placed beside the Christmas tree, claiming that “a symbol of their faith be represented”? The airport officials CORRECTLY DECIDED that if they were going to put Christian and Jewish symbols up then they would have to accommodate all of the DOZENS of faiths in the Seattle area, SO THEY HAD TO FORCE US TO OBEY OUR OWN BIBLE BY REMOVING OUR IMAGES! Now I understand that objects were given by God in the Old Testament to USE in worship of HIM. They were NEVER INTENDED to represent God OR our faith in Him. So I say that if Christians are going to hold onto the symbols of our false public cultural religion, let the witches have theirs.)

She’s disappointed, though, that an attempt to acknowledge different religious beliefs has apparently divided her community even further. “This is supposed to be the season of peace and goodwill towards men and I don’t see any of that,” said Garlow. (Probably because the “peace on earth goodwill towards men” was said by the angel to the shepherds when Jesus Christ was born, and that day was NOT in late December to begin with, but rather late September to early October. Late December is when you have always had your pagan solstices, Saturnalias, yuletides, etc. I have no problem with you celebrating your long existing observance during the time that it has always been held. I am just curious as to why we Christians cannot be content with the REAL HOLIDAYS that God gave us. And I say “real holiday” for a reason, for the word “holiday” means “holy day” and since God alone is holy, only God has the right and ability to choose, consecrate, and sanctify a day as “holy.” The observances given to us by God in the Bible are the only true holidays, all else are pretenders. Maybe it will take this pagan witch shoehorning in on the Santa Claus flying reindeer elves yule log mistletoe drunken lascivious office party racket to get Christians to see that. Or then again, maybe not. I will suggest this though: if God wanted us to observe the birth of His Son, He would have told us what day it was on in the Bible. Meanwhile, we do know exactly what days His death, resurrection, and ascension were on, as well as the day of Pentecost don’t we? Hmmm … )

Olean police say the person responsible for crashing into the pentacle drove away in a black Ford pickup, and they’re asking anyone with information to call them. The number for the Olean Police Department is 716-376-5678. (Personally I hope they catch him and he is fully prosecuted. Vandalism is a crime. But realize that this happened only because we have the very type of public symbolic religious displays that the Bible tells us not to have in the first place.)
