GAYS AND LESBIANS IN THE BLOODY
HANDS OF CHRISTIAN EVANGELICALS

[What's happening today in Uganda & the support it is receiving
from U.S. evangelicals should send shivers up our spines:

PORTENTS OF THINGS TO COME.]

BY: S.R. SHEARER
April 9, 2013

Those who think that antiChrist will present himself to the world as an Obama-like figure - as a man of peace and a friend of the gay and lesbian community - are making a huge mistake. The Bible describes him as anything but that:

  • The Violent One
  • The Desolator
  • The Bloody and Deceitful Man
  • The Wicked One
  • The Adversary
  • The Spoiler
  • The Nail
  • The Vile Person
  • The Son of Perdition
  • The Abomination of Desolation

[Please see our article, "Beware the Prophetic Daydreams of False Prophets and Empty-Headed Dreamers"]

There are those, of course, who discount the danger to the gay and lesbian community from right-wing Christians; who believe that the election of 2012 has made it plain that the political power of conservative Christians is a thing of the past. But, then, that's the mistake that liberals in Germany made when Hitler seized power with only one-third of the German electorate backing him in 1933. While we have speculated that conservative Christians will eventually seize power in the US as the result of a military coup, how it will actually occur is anyone's guess; but however it happens, it will most assuredly happen. [Please see our articles, "Seven Days in May" and "There Are Seven Kings."]

"Unless we get medically lucky [i.e., unless AIDS does the job for us], in three or four years, one of the options discussed [in dealing with the scourge of homosexuality and AIDS] WILL BE THE EXTERMINATION OF HOMOSEXUALS."

-- Dr. Paul Cameron,
Christian psychologist

"The Yahweh separatist prophets gotta kill those guys [meaning homosexuals]!"

-- Lou Engle

Engle speaking to a small, intimate group of his followers recently in Kansas City whom he calls "Yahweh Separatists."

While these are no doubt radical statements, one is making a mistake in thinking that Cameron and Engle are not representative of a large portion of the evangelical community; both men are publicly endorsed by such evangelical "heavy-hitters" as James Dobson of Focus on the Family and Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council.


PREFACE

As we have indicated in previous articles, American Christians are being taught to HATE; HATE is the necessary ingredient in the construction of any fascist state – and Christians (so-called) are being purposefully "targeted" to be the main carriers of this deadly pathogen insofar as Babylon the Great (the U.S.) is concerned. [Please see our article, "In Search of Babylon; What Do the Scriptures Say?"]

We have dwelt at length on the effort by the elites and the Religious Right to "morph" the Islamic community into a target of that HATE; now we come to a second "target:" the Gay and Lesbian community.

This year the US Supreme Court will take up the matter of gay marriage. Obama and his cohorts are supporting the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court's decision overturning Proposition 8 – California's Defense of Marriage Act which was passed by an overwhelming majority of voters in California in 2008. Christians believe that should the Ninth Circuit Court's decision be allowed to stand, hedonism, pedophilia and "pleasure seeking" of the worst kind will overtake the nation.

Christians suppose that should that occur, the church will suffer a defeat from which it will never be able to recover; but that's not so! Such an outcome will NOT be a defeat for the church; what happens to the United States has NOTHING to do with the church or the Kingdom of God. In speaking about the sphere of His kingdom, Jesus said:

"My kingdom IS NOT OF THIS WORLD: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight ... but ... my kingdom [is] not from hence." (John 18:36)

The failure here to differentiate between the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of this World leads inevitably to APOSTASY – and it is this apostasy that is the gateway to failure for Christians who pass through it during the Tribulation Period. [Please see Part 3 in Chapter VII of the NEW ANTIPAS PAPERS, "The World."]

The Bible says:

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day [i.e., the day of the rapture and resurrection] shall not come, except there come a FALLING AWAY [i.e., apostasy] first ..." (2 Thess. 2:3)

By tying the church to the fate of the United States (i.e., God's great enemy, "Babylon the Great"), by linking their fate together, Christians have fallen prey to the DECEPTION OF THE "END OF DAYS," and they will suffer the same fate that Christians in Germany suffered when they rallied behind Hitler because he promised to clean up the country morally and imprison homosexuals. Indeed, Hitler - in his first radio address to the German people after coming to power - announced,

"The national government ... will maintain and defend the foundations on which the power of our nation rests. It will offer strong protection to Christianity as the very basis of our collective morality."

Church and State united

Two weeks later, on February 16, 1933, Hitler asserted,

"Today Christians ... stand at the head of Germany ... I pledge that I never will tie myself to parties who want to destroy Christianity ... We want to fill our culture again with the Christian spirit ... We want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in literature, in the theater, and in the press - in short, we want to burn out the poison of immorality which has entered into our whole life and culture as a result of liberal excess during the past ... [few] years."

And Hitler was true to his words: in 1934, he unleashed a Terror on the homosexual community every bit as awful and hate-filled as the one he unleashed on Germany's Jews, culminating in the arrest and murder of Ernst Roehm, the leader of the SA, in what became known as the "Night of the Long Knives" (June, 1934).

The "Night of the Long Knives" when Hitler - among other things - began the roundup of German homosexuals, murdering thousands of them and confining the rest to concentration camps where they could no longer "infect" German manhood.

I solemnly warn you, dear Christian, whoever you are, that if you allow yourself to be trapped by the HATRED that many of the leaders of today's church have unleashed against the gay and lesbian community, you too will hear the same words that German Christians heard who participated in Hitler's campaign of annihilation against the homosexual community of Germany seventy years ago:

"Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels." (Matthew 25:41)

My friend Constance Cumbey once told me,

"Satan's greatest ruse is to first create a problem, and then offer the solution. The problem created is the bait; the poison is in the solution."

The problem Satan has created seems compelling, persuasive, convincing; it demands action. The bait is set. The solution? - You must "enter the lists" (or arena); you must involve yourself and your church politically to "stop the madness." The trap is sprung!


If you are not careful this could be you, caught in Satan's trap just as German Christians were 70-years ago.

-- Antipas

Make the effort that Sophie Scholl and the other members of the White Rose - all Christians - made in Germany against the Hitler regime. WE ASK YOU TO JOIN US IN THIS EFFORT - have the courage of Sophie Scholl: Pass out our flyer, leave it in libraries, affix it to trees and posts, put it on the wind-shields of cars, especially those in church parking lots.

Sophie Scholl

At the age of 21 Sophie was executed by guillotine after being convicted of high treason. Her crime was publishing some anti-war leaflets that were printed by the White Rose (a non-violent resistance group that encouraged people to passively resist the Nazis) in 1943 at Munich University. Eventually a copy of the leaflet made it out of Germany and millions of copies were made and then dropped by plane over parts of Germany. Its was re-entitled The Manifesto of Munich Students.

Do you possess the courage that Sophie possessed? ARE YOU WILLING TO DOWNLOAD OUR FLYER AND PASS IT OUT? [Please see our article, "We Are Your Conscience: The White Rose Society."]

CHRISTIANS: TARGETING THE
GAY AND LESBIAN COMMUNITY

INTRODUCTION

Crematoria at Buchenwald

Seventy years ago, people around the world failed to take Hitler seriously when he talked of exterminating the Jewish race. They couldn't believe he was serious. They know better today.

Seventy years ago, people around the world failed to take Hitler seriously when he talked of exterminating the Jewish race. They couldn't believe he was serious.

Many are making the same mistake today when so-called Christians such as Dr. Paul Cameron and Lou Engle speak of exterminating homosexuals (see PREFACE above).

NOTE: And if Christians don't know about this "whispering" in the church today, it's because they have been purposefully ignoring it.

This kind of behind-the-scenes "whispering" that is occurring today in the church regarding homosexuals is the precursor of open speech, and speech is the precursor of action as events in Uganda are making plain WHERE CHRISTIAN GROUPS ARE PROPOSING TO DO TO HOMOSEXUALS IN UGANDA WHAT HITLER DID TO THE JEWS, AND THEY ARE BEING SUPPORTED BY POWERFUL CHRISTIANS IN THE UNITED STATES, many of whom united themselves together to pass Proposition 8 in California in 2008. [Please see our article, "Proposition 8: How Will the Church Respond to Its Defeat."]

PROPOSITION 8

Proposition 8 (or the California Marriage Protection Act) was a ballot proposition and constitutional amendment passed in the November 2008, state elections. The measure added a new provision, Section 7.5 of the Declaration of Rights, to the California Constitution, which provides that "only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California."

Most Christians today "poo-poo" the idea that Christians - should they gain power in the United States - would ever countenance the killing of homosexuals; but that's what most Germans said before Hitler came to power in 1933. Words are the necessary precursors to action; and if that is so, Christians in the United States are very close to being "morphed" into MONSTERS, just as the German people were in 1933.

Leaders associated with Proposition 8 include: Chuck Colson, Founder Prison Fellowship & BreakPoint, Che Ahn, Harvest International Ministry, Vonette Bright, Co-Founder, Campus Crusade for Christ, International, Bishop Keith Butler, Founding Pastor, Word of Faith International Christian Center, Kristina Arriaga, Executive Director, Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, Jim Daly, President & CEO, Focus on the Family, Lou Engle, TheCall to Conscience, TheCall, Father Joseph Fessio, Editor in Chief, Ignatius Press, San Francisco, Maggie Gallagher, National Organization for Marriage, Professor Robert George, Princeton University, Professor Timothy George, Dean, Beeson Divinity School, Jack Hayford, Founder and Chancellor, The King's College and Seminary, Mike Huckabee, Former Governor of Arkansas & Host, The Mike Huckabee Show, Bishop Harry Jackson, Jr., High Impact Church Coalition, Alveda King, Silent No More Awareness Campaign, Richard Land, The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, Ron Luce, Founder, Teen Mania & Battle Cry, Bishop Richard Malone, Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland (Maine), Eva Muntean & Dolores Meehan, Co-Founders, West Coast Walk for Life, San Francisco, Penny Nance, Concerned Women for America, Tony Perkins, Family Research Council, James Robison, Life Outreach, International, Samuel Rodriguez, National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, Alan Sears, Alliance Defense Fund, Chuck Stetson, Let's Strengthen Marriage Campaign, Steve Strang, Publisher, Charisma Magazine.

THE MISTAKEN IMPRESSION THAT HOMOSEXUALITY
IS THE WORST OF ALL SINS; ADULTERY IS MUCH WORSE

One senses that nothing excites Christian hatred more than the sin of homosexuality, and so much so that Engle - after declaring that "The Yahweh separatist prophets gotta kill those guys! (meaning, of course, gays and lesbians – see PREFACE above) writes:

Lou Engle

"I believe we're headed to an Elijah/Jezebel showdown on the Earth [centering around the issue of homosexuality] not just in America but all over the globe, and the main warriors will be the prophets of Baal versus the prophets of God, and there will be no middle ground. There's an Elijah generation that's going to be the forerunners for the coming of Jesus, a generation marked not by their niceness but by the intensity of their passion [meaning hatred toward gays]."

Plainly, in today's church the so-called "sin" of homosexuality has been raised to a level that far exceeds any other personal "sin" mentioned in the Bible, for example adultery – a "sin" that engaged the attention of Christ far more than homosexuality. Indeed, Christ Himself never even touched upon the question of homosexuality in His earthly ministry. He was far more concerned with the sin of adultery. Nonetheless, it seems that the sin of adultery is forgotten history insofar as most Christians are concerned today, a "sin" that over 60% of those who refer to themselves as "born-again" Christians have cavalierly participated in at some time in their life. [We URGE you to see our articles, "As in the Days of Noah" and "The Supernatural, America's Intelligence Agencies, the Republican Elites, Drugs and Pedophilia" to understand how deeply sexual perversion has penetrated into America's so called "conservative" community.]

THE EXAMPLE OF PASTOR JOHN HAGEE

John Hagee - HYPOCRITE!

Take, for example, John Hagee, pastor of the huge Cornerstone Church in San Antonio: Hagee was the leader of the charismatic Trinity Church in 1975 and the father of two children when he had an adulterous affair with a younger woman.

He then divorced the mother of his two children and married the woman (Diana Castro, now Diana Hagee) - a "sister" from that same congregation. Very obviously, the words of Christ concerning adultery meant NOTHING to him:

"Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.

"And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery." (Mark 10:11-12)

NUMBER OF TIMES EACH WORD IS MENTIONED IN THE NEW TESTAMENT

ADULTERY - 18; by Christ Himself - 12
FORNICATION - 28; by Christ Himself - 3
HOMOSEXUALITY - 1 by Christ Himself - 0

Adultery - sex between a man and a woman who are married to others.

Fornication - sex between a man and a woman outside the institution of marriage.

Homosexuality - sex between members of the same sex.

AND NOW HAGEE FEELS HE CAN IGNORE HIS OWN SIN AND CONDEMN HOMOSEXUALS? What about John 8:7? - Has he excised this verse from the Bible? The hypocrisy of it all defies any kind of rationalization. Well did Jesus say of such people,

"How canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me cast out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself beholdest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote that is in thy brother's eye." (Luke 6:42)

II

IDEAS ARE INFECTIOUS

THE NETWORK OF OUR ASSOCIATIONS

Most Christians – such as those listed above - would be appalled if they were accused of supporting a "FINAL SOLUTION" to the "Homosexual Problem," and they will, naturally enough, deny that they are being affected at all by such ideas; but in the end, the only people they may be kidding are themselves.

Our network of associations with one another - whether civic, religious, social, or personal - forms an integrated system of arteries down through which notions of all sort journey - sometimes to our benefit, and sometimes to our injury. By such means, ideas become infectious; uplifting us on the one hand, and corrupting us on the other.

Bad ideas, if left unchecked within a community, have a treacherous way of using the network of our social, political and religious relationships to spread it's venom throughout the entire body; of using the bands which connect us together as channels of corruption. By such means evil can demolish not only the individual Christian, but the entire Christian community.

Bear in mind here that we are not concerned with evil in our nation, but evil in the church. Remember, the words of Jesus:

"My kingdom IS NOT OF THIS WORLD: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight but my kingdom [is] not from hence." (John 18:36)

It is in this way that we can properly speak of the contagion of evil; if left unchecked within a community, evil - like a vicious cancer - has a treacherous way of using the network of our social, political and religious relationships to spread it's venom throughout the entire body; of using the bands which connect us together as channels of corruption. By such means evil can demolish not only the individual Christian, but the entire Christian community.

The Bible says,

"A little leaven leavens the whole lump." (Gal. 5:9)

Of course, there are those who would say that such thinking implies "guilt by association" - and to a certain extent, that's true!

But the plain fact of the matter is, the relationships we keep, the fellowships we sustain, and the institutional associations we support - especially our religious and political ones - do indeed go a long way in defining us as persons.

Films such as "I Married a Communist" became famous during "Great Communist Scare" of 1946-1954. More than 50 anti-communist films were made from 1949-1954. All mostly mediocre maybe because the blacklist was actually gutting Hollywood of a lot of good talent while these were being churned out.

This is why the Lord warns us against "mixture" - the mixing of the "profane" with the "holy" – of allowing people such as Lou Engle and Paul Cameron into our fellowship. It leads to a condition where "the good" is mixed with "the bad" - a condition which the Bible indicates NEVER works out in favor of "the good" (again, "a little leaven leavens the whole lump"):

"Take heed to thyself, lest thou make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land whither thou goest, lest it be for a snare in the midst of thee." (Ex. 34:12)

THERE IS SUCH A THING AS
GUILT BY ASSOCIATION

McCarthy era demagogues had a name for those whom they deemed "guilty by association:" they were called "fellow travelers" - people who "traveled" in the same circles as communists and avowed communist sympathizers. In the McCarthyite lexicon, nothing could be as damning as that epitaph. They understood that association more often than not implied agreement.

Surely those on the Secular or even Religious Right should have no argument with this - i.e., with the notion of "guilt by association." Their old McCarthy era friends took this concept to its extreme in their efforts to ferret out "communists" and "communist sympathizers" during the "Great Communist Scare" of 1946-1954 - and they found nothing wrong with this concept at that time. Why should they find anything wrong with it now?

In the McCarthyite lexicon, nothing could be as damning as that epitaph. They understood that association more often than not implied agreement.

This was true during the McCarthy era, and it's true today. As the evangelical Christian community has been ever more drawn into the "right-wing matrix," it has been deeply affected by its new found "friends" and "associations."

Mass hysteria has reared its ugly head for as long as humans have existed. Adolf Hitler worked enough people into a frenzy to justify the murder of millions of Jews. Jesus Christ, known by all as peaceful, if controversial, was brutally nailed to a cross because a few high-ranking officials felt threatened by him. Although one would hope that people would learn a lesson or two from the mistakes of the past, it seems that history, as the old cliché goes, is forever doomed to repeat itself. Enter Senator Joseph McCarthy. While he may not have caused genocide or murdered a prophet, he was able to whip up hysteria in America in the early 1950s. McCarthy's issue of choice? Communism. The American Heritage Dictionary defines McCarthyism as "the political practice of publicizing accusations of disloyalty or subversion with insufficient regard to evidence."

STORM-TROOPERS AS A NECESSITY IN
THE INITIAL STAGES OF EVERY NEW
POLITICAL & SOCIAL MOVEMENT

Every controversial movement needs its "storm-troopers" -persons willing - to put it in the vernacular - to "take the shit" that others who hold similar views are not prepared to take when confronting the malice of the "old establishment.

EVERY CONTROVERSIAL MOVEMENT
NEEDS ITS STORM-TROOPERS

Every controversial movement needs its "storm-troopers" –persons willing, to put it in the vernacular, to "take the shit" that others who hold similar views are not prepared to take when confronting the malice of the "old establishment;" people who for one reason or another feel they have nothing to lose from the invective sure to be poured out on them from the ancien regime.

Usually one finds such people on the fringes of society. That's precisely where Hitler found his Storm-Troopers – on the fringes of German society; young men – mostly unemployed – who had served in the army during World War I and felt that they had lost the war because communists and Jews had "stabbed them in the back" on the home-front.

Stabbed in the back by socialists, communists and Jews

THE PINK STORM-TROOPERS OF THE GAY &
LESBIAN COMMUNITY ARE BORN

BEFORE 1969 ...

Before 1969 the gay and lesbian community was pretty much a hidden phenomenon. To be labeled a homosexual meant social and political ostracism; as a result, gays and lesbians hid themselves in run-down bars and taverns in the seedy sections of towns and cities scattered around the country.

The Stonewall Inn in New York's Greenwich Village was one such bar. It had no liquor license and no running water behind the bar; used glasses were run through tubs of water and immediately reused. There were no fire exits, and the toilets overran constantly. It was the only bar for gay men in New York City where dancing was allowed.

Before 1969 the gay and lesbian community was pretty much a hidden phenomenon. To be labeled a homosexual meant social and political ostracism; as a result, gays and lesbians hid themselves in run-down bars and taverns in the seedy sections of towns and cities scattered around the country. The Stonewall Inn in New York's Greenwich Village was one such bar.


NOTE: The bar was owned by "straights" who on the one hand condemned the "immorality" of the gay and lesbian community, but who on the other hand were more than willing to take money from them.

POLICE RAIDS ON STONEWALL

Police raids on Stonewall were common, and the time period immediately before June 28, 1969 was marked by frequent police raids.

Police raids on Stonewall were common, and the time period immediately before June 28, 1969 was marked by frequent police raids. At 1:20 in the morning of Saturday, June 28, 1969, four plainclothes policemen in dark suits (members of the "vice squad"), two patrol officers in uniform, and two detectives arrived at the Stonewall Inn's double doors and announced "Police! We're taking the place!"

Once inside, they called for backup from the Sixth Precinct using the bar's pay telephone. The music was turned off and the main lights were turned on.

Approximately 200 people were in the bar that night. Someone shouted, "Gay power!" Someone began singing "We Shall Overcome," and the crowd reacted with "growing hostility."

Gay journalist Michael Fader explained:

"We all had a collective feeling like we'd had enough of this kind of shit ... and we're going to fight."

With that, the storm-troopers for the gay and lesbian community were born – i.e., those willing to protest OPENLY for gay rights, take part in gay-rights parades, etc. They were the "ner-do-wells" of the homosexuality community; those who didn't have reputations and status to lose.

THE PINK STORM-TROOPERS OF THE
GAY AND LESBIAN COMMUNITY

The storm-troopers for the gay and lesbian community were born; they were the "ner-do-wells" of the homosexuality community; those who didn't have reputations and status to lose. The movement began to spread to similar gay and lesbian bars and taverns around the country, bars and taverns filled with gays and lesbians from the fringes of society - most of whom had nothing to lose in a face-off with "THE ESTABLISHMENT;" people willing to "put themselves out there" in a battle with the ancien regime

TURNING "THE ESTABLISHMENT" ON ITS HEAD

The movement began to spread to similar gay and lesbian bars and taverns around the country, bars and taverns filled with gays and lesbians from the fringes of society – most of whom had nothing to lose in a face-off with "THE ESTABLISHMENT;" people willing to "put themselves out there" in a battle with the ancien regime - and in the forty-five years since, the gay and lesbian community has managed to turn "THE ESTABLISHMENT" on its head – and so much so that it is not too much to say that they have become today's "ESTABLISHMENT."

SCOTT LIVELY AND TODAY'S "CHRISTIAN" STORM-TROOPERS

TODAY'S GAY ESTABLISHMENT IS
BEING CHALLENGED IN THE STREETS

"STORM-TROOPERS
FOR CHRIST"

What is particularly worrying is that these eastern European communities seem to be impervious to penetration from the outside and act as the STORM-TROOPERS for the anti-gay movement. Sanchez says that the anti-gay tactics of the Slavic evangelicals in the U.S. are just as crude and even more physically abusive than Fred Phelps' infamous Westboro Baptist Church. Slavic anti-gay talk radio hosts and fundamentalist preachers routinely deliver hateful screeds on the airwaves and from the pulpit in their native tongue that, were they delivered in English, would be a source of nationwide controversy.

BUT THIS "ESTABLISHMENT" (i.e., the gay and lesbian establishment) IS BEING CHALLENGED TODAY BY THE SAME KIND OF FRINGE GROUPS THAT CHALLENGED "THE CONSERVATIVE ESTABLISHMENT" BACK IN 1969 – people who are willing to "take the shit" that others in the Christian community are unwilling to take; people who don't have anything to lose in a confrontation with today's gay establishment; and, according to the Southern Poverty Law center, groups like this are exploding around the country.

According to Casey Sanchez, who reports on anti-gay incidents, the explosion of such groups is particularly evident among eastern European Baptists and Pentecostals who have organized numerous anti-gay protests around the country. These groups seem impervious to the invective and threats of jail for various hate crimes that today's gay and lesbian establishment is able to bring to bear against them. Indeed, one gay rights activist told Sanchez,

"... what the gay community has feared for some time is finally happening."

ALEXEY LEDYAEV AND THE
NEW GENERATION CHURCH

The source of the anti-gay hatred in America's eastern European communities stems from their connection with powerful anti-gay churches in their homelands, such as Pastor Alexey Ledyaev's New Generation Church, an evangelical Christian megachurch in Riga, the capital city of Latvia.

NOTE: Born in Kazakhstan, Ledyaev doesn't even speak fluent Latvian. But he's quite proficient in the international language of the anti-gay Christian Right. Ledyaev is close friends with Southern Baptist televangelist Pat Robertson — a man who once predicted God would punish Florida with hurricanes and other disasters because Disney World had allowed a "Gay Days" discount; he was actually invited to the 2006 National Prayer Breakfast hosted by President George Bush.

Pastor Ledyaev's 2002 book, New World Order, calls for evangelical Christians around the world to influence the wealthy and powerful in their home countries to implement biblical law in order to stave off a supposed alliance of gays and Muslims hell-bent on destroying Christianity. Ledyaev writes:

"The first devastating wave of homosexuality makes a way for the second and more dangerous wave of Islamization."

New Generation has more than 200 satellite churches spread throughout Eastern Europe, Argentina, Israel and the United States.

The connection between both the anti-gay churches in eastern Europe and the anti-gay east European immigrant churches in the United States (on the one hand) and the growing anti-gay movement among mainline evangelical churches in the United States (on the other hand) is SCOTT LIVELY who gained popularity in these communities with the publication of his book, The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party, published in 1995.

NOTE: Scott Lively is the former director of the California chapter of the anti-gay American Family Association and the founder of both Defend the Family Ministries and the Pro-Family Law Center." Lively identifies "the enemy" as not only homosexuals, but also what he terms "homosexualists," a category that includes anyone, regardless of sexual orientation, who -

"... actively promotes homosexuality as morally and socially equivalent to heterosexuality as a basis for social policy."

The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party, is a breathtaking work of Holocaust revisionism. It asserts that Hitler was gay — a claim no serious historian supports." Lively credits much of the initial support he received in America's anti-gay eastern European immigrant communities to Alexey Ledyaev. He writes:

"One of my supporters gave him [Ledyaev] a copy of The Pink Swastika. He was very impressed by it."

Lively said in a December 2006 radio show on WTTT-AM, based in Boston:

"The European press was bashing them [Ledyaev and his church] for being Nazis. He was finally thrilled that he had something to counter the media with."

Since then, Lively says,

"I've been deluged by media speaking offers all over the former Soviet Union."

Lively frequently speaks about the book and his broader anti-gay agenda in churches, police academies and television news studios throughout the former Soviet Union.

Lively's postulates in The Pink Swastika and a second book, The Poisonous Stream, "a dark and powerful homosexual presence" not only in the Third Reich, but also in "the Spanish Inquisition, the French 'Reign of Terror,' the era of South African apartheid, and the two centuries of American Slavery."

One can begin to see how seriously these anti-gay groups take their war against homosexuals; plainly, their war against gays and lesbians is on a par with our wars against Nazism and Communism, replete with all the blood-letting and slaughter that accompanied those conflicts.

THE WATCHMEN MOVEMENT

Scott Lively is currently the chief international envoy for the Watchmen Movement. The Watchmen is an international anti-gay movement that ties together the anti-gay churches in eastern Europe, the east European communities in the United States and other anti-gay churches throughout the world connected to The New Generation churches of Alexey Ledyaev.

The Watchmen portray the battle against gay rights as nothing less than a biblical clash of civilizations. "The homosexual sexual ethic" and "family-based society" are at war, Lively proclaimed in his letter to The Washington Times:

"One must prevail at the expense of the other."

That sort of militant rhetoric is standard among Watchmen followers on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. Speaking to his American counterparts in a Watchmen video, a Latvian anti-gay activist intones:

"Your generation beat the Nazis, and our country beat the Communists. Together we will defeat the homosexuals!"

NOTE: here one can begin to see how seriously these anti-gay groups take their war against homosexuals; they see their war against gays and lesbians on the same plain as the wars against Nazism and Communism, replete with all the blood-letting and slaughter that accompanied those conflicts.

The Watchmen movement's strategy for combating the "disease" of homosexuality calls for AGGRESSIVE CONFRONTATION. And just how militant these groups are was made plain last year in Salem, Ore., where more than 700 Russian-speaking teenagers rallied outside the state Capitol against a pair of gay rights bills. It was the largest anti-gay protest to take place in Oregon's sleepy capital city since 1992, when the anti-gay Oregon Citizens Alliance (OCA) pushed a ballot initiative that came within a few percentage points of rewording the state constitution to declare gay people "abnormal, wrong, unnatural and perverse" and requiring the state to fire all openly gay or lesbian public school teachers.

IMPERVIOUS TO CRITICISM
FROM LIBERALS IN THE U.S.

Again, what is particularly worrying is that America's anti-gay eastern European communities are impervious to penetration from the outside, a fact which limits all efforts to mitigate their homophobia, a fact which makes them exemplars as STORM-TROOPERS for the anti-gay movement in America. And it would not be too much to say that these anti-gay eastern-European storm-troopers have a much greater willingness to use violence than gay militants have.

Lively serves as a stark example of how the anti-gay movement is organizing itself for a "STREET BRAWL" with the gay and lesbian movement - much like the kind of street brawls in which Hitler's Storm-Troopers confronted the communists on the streets of Germany in the 1920s and early 1930s.

Indeed, Sanchez says that the anti-gay tactics of the Slavic evangelicals in the U.S. are just as crude and even more physically abusive than Fred Phelps' infamous Westboro Baptist Church. Slavic anti-gay talk radio hosts and fundamentalist preachers routinely deliver hateful screeds on the airwaves and from the pulpit in their native tongue that, were they delivered in English, would be a source of nationwide controversy. [Please see our article, "The Rise of Fascism in Europe."]

LIVELY PRACTICES THE
VIOLENCE HE PREACHES

When he personally confronts the enemy, Lively practices what he preaches when it comes to "battle-hardened" tactics. He recently was ordered by a civil court judge to pay $20,000 to lesbian photojournalist Catherine Stauffer for dragging her by the hair through the halls of a Portland church.

Lively's example here serves as a stark example of how the anti-gay movement is organizing itself for a "STREET BRAWL" with the gay and lesbian movement – much like the kind of street brawls in which Hitler's Storm-Troopers confronted the communists on the streets of Germany in the 1920s and early 1930s.

SCOTT LIVELY & MASCULINE CHRISTIANITY

Lively says:

"We church leaders need to stop being such, for lack of a better word, sissies when it comes to social and political issues."

Lively argues in a widely-circulated tract called Masculine Christianity that –

"For every motherly, feminine ministry of the church such as a Crisis Pregnancy Center or ex-gay support group we need a battle-hardened, take-it-to-the-enemy masculine ministry like [the anti-abortion group] Operation Rescue."

MASCULINE CHRISTIANITY

"For every motherly, feminine ministry of the church such as a Crisis Pregnancy Center or ex-gay support group we need a battle-hardened, take-it-to-the-enemy masculine ministry."

-- Scott Lively


All the mainline denominations have female priests or pastors, and the Episcopal Church even has a female Presiding Bishop (who prayed to "our mother Jesus" at her installation). About twenty-five percent of Episcopal priests are women, as are about twenty-nine percent of Presbyterian pastors.

FEMININE POWER

"We fight against feminine power in the church."

-- Scott Lively

The renewed emphasis on Christianity as an AGGRESSIVE, MALE-ORIENTED religion surfaced for the first time on a large scale with the so-called "Promise Keepers Movement."

MEN DOMINATING WOMEN BY GANG-RAPING THEM
[and believing they deserve it]

The renewed emphasis on Christianity as an AGGRESSIVE, MALE-ORIENTED religion surfaced for the first time on a large scale with the so-called "Promise Keepers Movement."

Sarah Leslie wrote at the time this movement first appeared in the 1990s -

"Across the country, throughout every denomination, tens of thousands of men are coming to major meeting extravaganzas to learn how to be better husbands and fathers. They come away from these events with rave reviews, testimonies of changed lives, and renewed faith."

NOTE: While one no longer hears much concerning the Promise Keepers any more, the movement is still "alive and well." And more than that, its ideology of male domination has been by now absorbed into the mainstream of evangelical thought and is heartily embraced by such groups as NAR and countless other similar groups.

At the heart of the movement was a book by Robert Hicks entitled Understanding the Six Stages of Manhood. The book was published by NavPress and was endorsed by Dr. Dobson's Focus on the Family.

Leslie continues:

"Hicks orients himself around the concept of men as noble savage (which he refers to as Adam), a characterization anthropologist/humanist Margaret Mead gave primitive tribes. 'Even saints are savages', claims Hicks. Men are put through a guided workshop on how to get in touch with their savage self ... Hicks states that the second stage of a man's journey is Phallic."

MISOGYNY IN AMERICA'S NEW FORM OF CHRISTIANITY

To a very large extent, success in today's Christianity is based on the mythology surrounding the so-called GRAIL QUEST. In the Grail Quest, SEXUAL SIN IS THE BESETTING HINDRANCE THAT ALL GRAIL SEEKERS MUST OVERCOME IN THEIR QUEST FOR THE "VISION OF GOD." The destruction of Grail Searchers through sexual sin is a never ending theme running through the entire fabric of the Grail Quest. The massive, even colossal, gravity of sexual sin in the mythology of the Grail Quest has no parallel in the Bible. So great does the fear of sexual sin loom in the eyes of the Grail Seekers, that strict forms of chastity come to encompass all those who enter the quest - a chastity under which the Templars, the Hospitalers, the Teutons, etc. all labored.

It's no accident, therefore, that the same chastity - THE KIND THAT LEADS TO THE ACTUAL FEAR OF WOMEN AS A CONTAMINATING INFLUENCE - has come to encompass many modern Christian organizations; but again, the fear so generated has nothing to do with the Bible and everything to do with the Grail Quest - and the extensive degree to which this kind of thinking has trickled into Christianity gives some indication as to the influence that Grail thinking has had on Western Christianity.

WHEN THE MYTHOLOGY OF THE GRAIL QUEST IS COMBINED WITH THE BELIEF IN MANY RIGHT-WING CHRISTIAN CIRCLES THAT "FEMINIZATION" HAS SEVERELY WEAKENED CHRISTIANITY IN ITS CONFRONTATION WITH ISLAM, THEN ONE CAN BEGIN TO SEE THE SHADOWS OF A COMING WAR AGAINST WOMEN THAT WILL NOT ONLY DEMEAN WOMEN, BUT BRUTALIZE THEM AS WELL. [We urge you to see our article, "The War against Women."]


NOTE: The focus on male genitalia in this chapter goes beyond the biblical, straight into the New Age. "Men have a deep compulsion to worship with our phallus," states Hicks (p. 29). Discussing this strange power of the male phallus (p. 35), especially in the context of male rites of initiation, is overtly pagan and not even remotely Christian.

The Bible says:

"But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above)

"Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)" [Romans 10:6]

The meaning here is a simple one: Do NOT ATTEMPT TO COMPARE CHRIST IN ANY WAY TO MAN - whether by lifting man up to the heavens, or bringing Christ down to the earth. BUT THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT ONE IS DOING WHEN HE SAYS THAT CHRIST HAD THE SAME SEXUAL DESIRES THAT MAN HAS.

THIS IS "LUCIFERIC SIN" AND IT WILL NOT BE FORGIVEN. [Please see our article, "Luciferic Christianity."]

FASCINATION WITH THE PHALLUS

Fascination with the phallus (i.e., the erect male sexual organ (penis) as it appears just prior to penetration of the female vagina) was common in the ancient world. Indeed, "penis worship" is the basis of nearly all pagan worship.

Nonetheless, it is exactly this kind of paganism that Hicks says Jesus embraced; indeed, he suggests that Jesus was a -

"... PHALLIC KIND OF GUY" [i.e. that He was stimulated sexually and that He possessed an aggressive sex drive.]

Specifically, Hicks says,

"... [while] it was never recorded that Jesus had sexual relations with a woman ... if temptation means anything, it means Christ was tempted in every way as we are ..." [p. 181]

Such a statement, of course, is BLASPHEMOUS - but it gives some idea as to how widespread this kind of thinking (i.e., the desire to re-establish male domination) has become - and indicates a growing (and very ugly) reaction in many otherwise "mainstream" segments of our society (and not just "Christian" ones) against the radical feminism countenanced by liberals over the past twenty years: Phallus worship celebrates the sex act as an act of male domination - and not just domination, but aggressive and even violent domination).

IV

CREATING A MODEL IN UGANDA TARGETING HOMOSEXUALS THAT CHRISTIANS HOPE TO IMPLEMENT IN AMERICA

SCOTT LIVELY CARRIES THE MESSAGE
OF GAY HATRED TO AFRICA

IT IS NOT WITHOUT REASON THAT WE HAVE CAREFULLY ZEROED IN ON SCOTT LIVELY'S ROLE AT THE FOREFRONT OF THE NEW KIND OF "MASCULINE CHRISTIANITY" THAT IS TAKING SHAPE IN THE COUNTRY TODAY, AND ON HIS ENSUING ROLE IN THE CREATION OF AN "IRON GUARD" (so to speak) TO BATTLE THE GAY AND LESBIAN COMMUNITY "IN THE STREETS:" HE IS AT THE CENTER OF EXPORTING THIS KIND OF CHRISTIANITY TO UGANDA AND MAKING IT A MODEL FOR RE-IMPORTATION INTO THE UNITED STATES.

In March of 2009 three American evangelical Christians arrived in Uganda's capital to give a series of talks.

The three Americans who spoke at the conference were Scott Lively --– the same Scott Lively we have been reporting on, the same Scott Livelywho stands at the forefront of creating an "IRON GUARD" in the United States capable of taking the battle against the gay and lesbian community to the streets --- Caleb Lee Brundidge, a self-described former gay man who leads "healing seminars," and Don Schmierer, a board member of Exodus International, whose mission is "mobilizing the body of Christ to minister grace and truth to a world impacted by homosexuality."

FROM LEFT TO RIGHT: Scott Lively, Caleb Lee Brundidge and Don Schmierer

These three AMERICANS traveled to Uganda to preach on how terrible homosexuality is to the world. After a 3 day rally conference featuring topics such as "how homosexuality is contagious", "homosexuals have a secret, evil agenda", and "how to convert homosexuals" the Ugandans were inspired. So much so that they passed a bill imposing the death penalty for homosexuals one month later.

Jeffrey Gentleman reports that -

"... the theme of the event, according to Stephen Langa, its Ugandan organizer, was 'the gay agenda — that whole hidden and dark agenda' — and the threat homosexuals pose to Bible-based values and the traditional African family.

"For three days, according to participants and audio recordings, thousands of Ugandans, including police officers, teachers and national politicians, listened raptly to the Americans, who were presented as experts on homosexuality. The visitors discussed,

  • how to make gay people straight,
  • how gay men often sodomized teenage boys, and
  • how 'the gay movement is an evil institution' whose goal is 'to defeat the marriage-based society and replace it with a culture of sexual promiscuity'."

Essentially, the message that Lively and his cohorts took to Uganda is much the same as the one that Lively has been associated with in connection with the Watchmen Ministry: specifically that homosexuality is responsible for –

One month after the conference, a previously unknown Ugandan politician, who boasts of having evangelical friends in the American government, introduced the Anti-Homosexuality Bill which threatened to hang homosexuals.

Gentleman goes on to report that -

"... human rights advocates in Uganda say the visit by the three Americans helped set in motion what could be a very dangerous cycle. Gay Ugandans already describe a world of beatings, blackmail, death threats like 'Die Sodomite!' scrawled on their homes and constant harassment."

Beyond calling for the death penalty for "aggravated homosexuality," the legislation also includes severe penalties for "failure to disclose the offense" by anyone who might be aware of another person's same-sex sexuality.

NOTE: The rumor of the death penalty clause being removed seems grossly exaggerated. Dr. Warren Throckmorton, who has followed the legislation closely, indicates that some Western media are erroneously reporting that the death penalty clause has been removed. He writes that -

"... the bill is the same bill it has always been. It cannot be amended until the committee report is presented to the floor of the Parliament."

BUT MORE THAN ALL THIS IS THAT PART OF THE LEGISLATION CALLING ON ALL CITIZENS TO SPY ON ONE ANOTHER UNDER PENALTY OF THE LAW; that is, compelling one to turn in his brother, sister, children, etc. to the authorities to be jailed or worse.

CLEANSING UGANDA OF SIN, BEGINNING WITH
THE EXTERMINATION OF HOMOSEXUALS

It is in the context of this new legislation that Uganda's pious President Museveni delivered a speech in which he dedicated his country to God and renounced "the Satanic influence" of "the last 50 years of [its] history." Museveni called upon God to forgive the nation, and Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga called upon the legislature to pass the "Kill the Gays" bill as a "gift" to the people of Uganda.

THE EASTERN CONGO & UGANDA

The eastern Congo is rich with vast amounts of gold, tantalum, tin, tungsten and - most importantly - coltan which ends up in virtually all the computers and cell phones on the planet. (It should be noted in this connection that the eastern Congo is just about the only place in the world that this vital mineral is found.) A 2002 UN panel named 85 major multi-national companies involved in the rape of the Congo. Naturally enough, most major US conglomerates deny that they are involved - either directly or indirectly - with what's happening there. For example, Apple's Steve Jobs loudly complained recently to the New York Times that Apple is not involved in any fashion with the trade of what has become known as "conflict mineral wealth" coming from the Congo; but that's simply not true, according to Global Witness. The same is true of other high-tech US corporations such Hewlett Packard.

The ugly truth of the matter is, American high-tech corporations are involved up to their necks in what's happening in the eastern Congo - specifically, the de-population of that area of its Hutu population - and, indeed, all other populations in the region. The aim of this de-population program is to clear the eastern Congo of its inhabitants so that these corporations can have free reign there. The U.S. State Department and the CIA are the agents through which these giant high-tech corporations are working; the CIA is, in effect, running this operation, while the State Department "covers" for it. The "on-the-ground" forces the CIA is using come from the RPF [Rwandan Patriotic Front] and Uganda.

Naturally, Christian conservative leaders in the U.S. are thrilled with what's happening in Uganda. FRC President Tony Perkins tweeted a big, warm hug to President Museveni for "leading his nation in repentance" and thus helping to create a "nation prospered by God." But Perkins' tweet was an hors d'oeuvre for the main course, a November 26 email alert sent out to FRC subscribers entitled, "During Revival, Media Still Atone Deaf." As the title suggests, one target of the longer commendation of Museveni is the charge that the US press is hypocritical; that it is -

"... so threatened by religion that it refuses to leave another country alone to pursue its own views on sexuality and faith."

THE FELLOWSHIP

Jeff Sharlet, author of The Family and C Street: The Fundamentalist Threat To American Democracy reports that one of Lively's important behind-the scenes supporters in Uganda has been the global evangelical network known as The Fellowship (also known as "The Family"). The Fellowship is a secretive U.S.-based brotherhood of international political and business leaders. Founded in 1935, its growing political clout was brought to widespread public notice with a 2002 Los Angeles Times report by Lisa Getter. [We URGE you to see our article on the Fellowship, "The Cedars: The House on 24th Street."]

Sharlet writes:

"As stated by Fellowship member and Watergate felon Charles Colson, the group is a 'veritable underground of Christ's men all through the U.S. government'. The Fellowship sponsors an annual National Prayer Breakfast in the U.S. and in countries throughout the world and sponsors training for youth including in Africa, where media materials repeatedly describe mentoring of a "new breed" of African leaders."

"Since the 1970s, the preeminent leader of the Fellowship has been Doug Coe, who has stated that Christians should be as dedicated as were the followers of Hitler, Lenin, and Mao. Coe has also advocated that Christians should organize 'invisibly' like the mafia - as Coe claims, Jesus advised."

"Since the 1970s, the preeminent leader of the Fellowship has been Doug Coe, who has stated that Christians should be as dedicated as were the followers of Hitler, Lenin, and Mao. Coe has also advocated that Christians should organize 'invisibly' like the mafia - as Coe claims, Jesus advised."

So thoroughly have these men cloaked themselves in the robes of anonymity that there is very little possibility that most people can find them out. They exist as a vague "force" in a shadowy NEXUS of right-wing power which encompasses the elites of -

  • the American business establishment,
  • the American military establishment,
  • the inner sanctums of American party politics especially Republican Party politics, and
  • the conservative Christian community.

Ugandan MP and Fellowship member Cecilia Goal declared the Fellowship's support of Lively's agenda in Uganda when she declared at Uganda's yearly National Prayer Breakfast,

"We are binding the evil of homosexuality. We are binding all sorts of forces of evil, where the devil has taken an upper hand ... and we are raising the banner of Christ!"

Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) and former U.S. Senator Sam Brownback, both members of the Fellowship and both heavily involved in the anti-gay "goings-on" in Uganda are also connected to Lively's anti-gay efforts in Uganda, and they have managed to link these efforts to America's surrogate army in eastern Africa, the Ugandan People's Defense Forces; these forces have been accused of a range of human rights violations and atrocities in Northern Uganda and the DRC Congo.

Yoweri Museveni

NOTE: The Ugandan People's Defense Force is a U.S.-sponsored surrogate army charged with the mission of clearing the eastern Congo of all those who oppose the American elite's effort to rape and pillage the extravagant mineral wealth of that area. Recently, the UPDF was implicated in supporting Congo warlord Thomas Lubanga, now on trial by the International Criminal Court for human rights violations in the DRC Congo. The UPDF has also been charged, in 2012 by Western human rights groups, with committing rape and looting in the Congo. Accusations against President Yoweri Museveni include charges of a planned, slow genocide committed against the Acholi people of Northern Uganda.

COMING BACK TO AMERICA
LIKE A BOOMERANG

Given the continuing implosion of the Republican Party, there is very little chance that conservative Christians could ever receive power through the ballot box. [Please see our recent article, "The New Permanent Obama Coalition."]

But that's not what they plan to do. [Please see our articles, "Seven Days in May" and "The Reichstag Fire of 1933 and 9-11: Portents of Things to Come."]

PAST IS PROLOGUE TO THE FUTURE

The use by American evangelicals of Uganda as a testing ground for what they hope to do someday to gays and lesbians in the American homeland is very similar to the way Hitler used the Spanish Civil War in the 1930s to test the new German Army (Wehrmacht) before he unleashed it on the world in 1939.

What's happening today in Uganda will someday happen in the United States – make no mistake about that; the hate-filled pronouncements of such people as Scott Lively, Lou Engle, Dr. Paul Cameron, etc., and the acquiescence of Christian "big-wigs" such as Chuck Colson, Che Ahn, Vonette Bright, Bishop Keith Butler, Kristina Arriaga, Lou Engle, Father Joseph Fessio, Maggie Gallagher, Professor Robert George, Timothy George, Jack Hayford, Mike Huckabee, Bishop Harry Jackson, Alveda King, Richard Land, Ron Luce, Bishop Richard Malone, Eva Muntean & Dolores Meehan, Penny Nance, Tony Perkins, James Robison, Samuel Rodriguez, Alan Sears, Chuck Stetson, Steve Strang, ad nauseum, ad infinitum gives evidence to this truth.

CHALCEDON AND RECONSTRUCTIONISM

The theology around which these faux Christians gather themselves is a religious supposition known as RECONSTRUCTIONISM (AKA, "DOMINIONISM"); its leading organization is the Chalcedon Foundation. It shouldn't come as a great surprise, therefore, to discover that Lively is intimately associated with Chalcedon and frequently writes for the Chalcedon Report, a journal published by the Chalcedon Foundation.

Reconstructionism argues that the Bible is to be the governing text for all areas of life, art, education, health care, government, family life, law and so on.

They have formulated a "biblical worldview" and "biblical principles" to inform and govern their lives and their politics. Reconstructionist theologian David Chilton succinctly described this view:

"The Christian goal for the world is the universal development of Biblical theocratic republics, in which every area of life is redeemed and placed under the Lordship of Jesus Christ and the rule of God's Law (meaning Old Testament Law)."

Some of the many religious-right leaders associated with the anti-gay movement - All Reconstructionists and potential allies of what Scott Lively and his cohorts would like to do in the United States

From left to right beginning at the top: Lou Sheldon, James Robison, Howard Ahmanson, the late R.J. Rushdoony, John Whitehead, Sarah Palin, Tim LaHaye, Phyllis Schafley, Pat Robertson, John Ankerberg, Bob Jones III, David Breese, Chuck Missler, Sam Moore.


Chip Berlet

NOTE: According to Chip Berlet, an expert on Reconstructionism,

  1. Dominionists celebrate Christian nationalism, in that they believe that the United States once was, and should once again be, a Christian nation. In this way, they deny the Enlightenment roots of American democracy.
  2. Dominionists promote Christian supremacy; they do not respect the equality of other religions.
  3. Dominionists endorse theocratic visions, insofar as they believe that the Ten Commandments, or "Biblical Law," should be the foundation of American law, and that the U.S. Constitution should be seen as a vehicle for implementing Biblical principles.

A partial list of well-known personalities who have been connected nationally or internationally to Reconstructionism includes Sam Brownback, Newt Gingrich, Mike Huckabee, Michele Bachmann, Jim DeMint, Rick Santorum, etc. – all conservative Republicans.

What should be EXTREMELY worrisome for the gay and lesbian community is that Reconstructionists CALL FOR THE STONING TO DEATH OF HOMOSEXUALS (in Uganda they call for hanging).

Woman accused of witchcraft in Salem - this is where Reconstructionism has led in the past, and it certainly is where it will lead insofar as homosexuals are concerned if the Religious Right ever seizes power in the US - AND THE BIBLE INDICATES THAT THEY WILL. [Please see Chapter XI of the New Antipas Papers, "AntiChrist: King of Babylon" and "Chapter XII of the New Antipas Papers, "The Beast of Revelation 17."]

THE NEW TESTAMENT REPUDIATES
THIS KIND OF OLD TESTAMENT LAW

The New Testament, however, repudiates this kind of Old Testament Law – and it does so in a very peculiar fashion: Because there exists no human agency capable of administering BIBLICAL LAW. The Bible says:

"For whosoever shall keep the whole law, AND YET OFFEND IN [JUST] ONE POINT, HE IS GUILTY OF ALL.

"For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law.

"So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.

"For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment." (James 2:10-13)

In other words, only the RIGHTEOUS can administer the Law; but the bible goes on to say:

THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NO, NOT ONE

"There is none righteous, no, not one:

"There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

"They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one." (Romans 3:10-12)

And as if to illustrate this point, the Bible recounts the story of the woman caught in adultery:

"And early in the morning he [Jesus] came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

"And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

"They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

"Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

"This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

"SO WHEN THEY CONTINUED ASKING HIM, HE LIFTED UP HIMSELF, AND SAID UNTO THEM, HE THAT IS WITHOUT SIN AMONG YOU, LET HIM FIRST CAST A STONE AT HER.

"And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

"And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

"When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

"She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. (John 8:2-11)

LOVE YOUR ENEMIES ...

Rather than calling fire down from heaven against our enemies, the New Testament calls on us to -

"LOVE OUR ENEMIES, bless them that curse us, do good to them that hate us, and pray for them which despitefully use us, and persecute us ..." (Matthew 5:44)

- and unless we do, we have no right to call ourselves the -

"Children of our Father who is in heaven." (Matthew 5:45)

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE? ...

This is the kind of blind HATRED towards gays and lesbians that people such as Scott Lively, Lou Engle and Dr Paul Cameron endorse.

Given the injunctions of Matthew 5:44 and 5:45, how is it possible, then, for someone like Randall Terry – the darling of Christian anti-abortionists and a fellow-Reconstructionist like Lively, Engle, Cameron, etc. – to represent himself as an emissary of Christ when he makes statements such as the following? -

"I want you to just let a wave of INTOLERANCE wash over you. I want you to let a wave of HATRED wash over you. Yes, HATE IS GOOD ... Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a biblical duty, we are called by God to conquer this country."

Very obviously, there is no way that one can reasonably square such invective with the New Testament.

Nonetheless, this is the Manichean mindset that dominates the brains of those so-called Christians in the anti-gay movement. These are people who cannot exist without someone to HATE; people who insist on systematically demonizing their enemies just as Hitler and the Nazis demonized the Jews – people that Hitler, the Nazis and eventually all of the German people thought constituted an ABSOLUTE EVIL that had to be utterly and completely destroyed.

It is utterly amazing that any sane person - especially a Christian - could have anything to do with someone who advocates the kind of violence that Engle, et. al. advocate. Nonetheless, US GOP Senators Sam Brownback and Jim DeMint, as well as Republican Congressional Representatives Michelle Bachmann and Randy Forbes count Engle as a friend and openly solicit his prayers for their endeavors to bring the country "back to Christ and the church."

And not only Brownback, DeMint, Bachmann and Forbes, but Mike Huckabee and Newt Gingrich both of whom have attended "revivals" at the huge Rock Church in Virginia Beach presided over by Engle.

THERE IS A VOID IN THE HEART
OF AMERICAN CHRISTIANS TODAY

There is a VOID in the heart of American Christians today – the same kind of VOID that allowed a "THEOLOGY OF HATE to seize control of the German people; a theology that cannot exist without an object to DETEST; one that insists on systematically demonizing its enemies.

But, again, it's a theology that stands in utter contradiction to Christ's command to -

"LOVE OUR ENEMIES, bless them that curse us, do good to them that hate us, and pray for them which despitefully use us, and persecute us ..." (Matthew 5:44)

A worm of HATRED directed at gays and lesbians in the heart of the American church

Nevertheless, most evangelicals today seem inured to what's occurring; blind to how juxtaposed Christ's command to His followers to love their enemies is to the vitriol of anti-gay hatred coming from the leaders of today's church. Milton Mayer, a well-known German essayist, described a similar escalation of inurnment – i.e., the process of making people used to something very unpleasant over a period of time so that they no longer are bothered or upset by it - that took place in Germany 70-years ago. He wrote:

"What happened was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little [to the hardening of their hearts]... Each step was so small, so inconsequential, so well explained or, on occasion, 'regretted' that, unless one were to detach from the whole process from the beginning, unless one understood what the whole thing was in principle, what all these 'little measures' that no 'patriotic German' could resist must some day lead to, ONE NO MORE SAW HOW HIS HEART WAS BEING HARDENED FROM DAY TO DAY THAN A FARMER IN HIS FIELD SEES THE CORN GROWING ...

"Believe me this is true. Each act is worse than the last, but only a little worse. You wait for the next and the next. You wait for one shocking occasion, THINKING THAT OTHER PEOPLE, WHEN SUCH A SHOCK COMES, WILL JOIN YOU IN RESISTING SOMEHOW ...

"Suddenly it all comes down, all at once. You see what you are, what you have done, or, more accurately, WHAT YOU HAVEN'T DONE (for that was all that was required of most of us: that we did nothing) ... You remember everything now, and your heart breaks. Too late. YOU ARE COMPROMISED BEYOND REPAIR."

Suddenly it all comes down, all at once. You see what you are, what you have done, or, more accurately, WHAT YOU HAVEN'T DONE (for that was all that was required of most of us: that we did noth-ing) ... You remember everything now, and your heart breaks. Too late. YOU ARE COMPROMISED BEYOND REPAIR."

WE ARE BEING CALLED ...

Brothers and sisters, listen to me here: WE ARE BEING CALLED AS AMBASSADORS OF CHRIST'S LOVE; AS SUCH, WE HAVE BEEN COMMANDED TO OPPOSE THE "THEOLOGY OF HATE" THAT HAS TAKEN HOLD OF TODAY'S CHURCH AND HAS DONE SO MUCH TO SUBORNE CHRIST'S MESSAGE OF LOVE.

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever be-lieveth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

"For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved." (John 3:16-17)

HAVE THE COURAGE OF SOPHIE SCHOLL AND THE WHITE ROSE SOCIETY WHO – AT THE HEIGHT OF HITLER'S POWER - HAD THE AUDACITY TO DECLARE THAT IT WAS IMPORTANT TO DECLARE THAT CHRIST WAS THE SUPREME POWER AND NOT ADOLPH HITLER.

God bless you all,

Antipas

Make the effort that Sophie Scholl and the other members of the White Rose - all Christians - made in Germany against the Hitler regime. WE ASK YOU TO JOIN US IN THIS EFFORT - have the courage of Sophie Scholl: Pass out our flyer, leave it in libraries, affix it to trees and posts, put it on the wind-shields of cars, especially those in church parking lots.

Sophie Scholl

At the age of 21 Sophie was executed by guillotine after being convicted of high treason. Her crime was publishing some anti-war leaflets that were printed by the White Rose (a non-violent resistance group that encouraged people to passively resist the Nazis) in 1943 at Munich University. Eventually a copy of the leaflet made it out of Germany and millions of copies were made and then dropped by plane over parts of Germany. Its was re-entitled The Manifesto of Munich Students.

Do you possess the courage that Sophie possessed? ARE YOU WILLING TO DOWNLOAD OUR FLYER AND PASS IT OUT? [Please see our article, "We Are Your Conscience: The White Rose Society."]
