ROBERTO D'AUBUISSON &
THE DEATH SQUADS
by: S.R. Shearer
In the Spring of 1984 Pat Robertson and CBN reporter Norm Mintle traveled
to El Salvador where they met with the late Roberto DAubuisson.
Following the trip, the "700 Club" aired four 20-30 minute
segments on El Salvador, the major theme being that DAubuisson
was a "very nice fellow" who was being maligned by the "biased
liberalism" of Newsweek, Time and U.S. News and
DAubuisson - a very nice fellow? Hardly! D' Aubuisson was
considered to be the most nortorious torture and Death Squad leader
in El Salvador; he was described by Robert White, former U.S. Ambassador
to El Salvador, as a "pathological killer," and was widely known as
"Major Soplete" (i.e., "Major Blowtorch").
How is it possible that Robertson could have described him as "a very
nice fellow?" - but that's the kind of "purposeful blindness"
which has become altogether too much the hallmark of those evangelicals
who have gotten mixed up in politics. God preserve us from those
who have been so blinded, and from their leaders - it's a case
of the blind leading the blind! (Matt 15:14)
When confronted with the facts concerning those with whom they have
allied themselves, evangelical leaders like Robertson don't even bother
confronting the facts themselves, but with a wave of their hand they
simply lie and dismiss the allegations outright. Truly it can be said
of them: "Having ears to hear, they hear not, and eyes to see,
they see not!" (Mark 8:18)
There will be a reckoning someday, and on "that day" it will not go
well for many of the leaders of today's evangelical church.

We need your help to spread the word concerning Antipas Ministries and the
eschatological viewpoint it represents; WE NEED YOUR
HELP BECAUSE WE DO NOT "LINK" WITH OTHER SO-CALLED "CHRISTIAN"
WEBSITES which are, for the most part, "in the tank"
insofar as their loyalty to the United States is concerned
- a loyalty that has made them partners in the BLOODY
trail the American military has left in its TERROR-RIDDEN
rampage throughout the world, as well as making them partners
in the abject poverty that American corporations have
imposed on the peoples and nations the American military
machine has ravaged - A BLOODY, TERROR-RIDDEN RAMPAGE
THAT HAS TO A LARGE DEGREE BEEN CARRIED OUT IN THE NAME
OF THE "PRINCE OF PEACE." [Please see our articles,
