Christian terrorism: how evangelical fundamentalism destroys people and civilizations

Christian terrorists and Christian terrorism have been fluid and growing since the first century CE when battles ranged between numerous groups of “Christians”—many out of Egypt (chrestianos), a few out of the Middle East (αδελφότητα: a “brotherhood” or “fraternity”), and even fewer from the region of Palestine (christianos).  The number of terrorists increased once the pagan Emperor Constantine I (“the Great”) created the Christian Church in 325 CE (the fiction that he was baptized on his death-bed has been debunked by numerous historians), which, with numerous transmogrifications, continued throughout  the Dark Ages after the Old (first) Roman Empire fell in the middle of the fifth century until the fifteenth century CE.  It was not until European fortune hunters came to what would be known as the Americas in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, carting in their baggage blood-thirsty mercaneries, mendicants, friars, conscripts and predatory priests each relying on a set of faulty literal translations and more bogus interpretations of documents that, for the most part, came out of the eighth century but with an imprimatur that they were either authentic (or more exact) or verifiable copies of original text. 

Atahualpa meets Pizarro and his priests

Franciscans, Dominicans, Jesuits, and Augustinians murdered, plundered and raped Central and South America with open rejoicing at the number slaughtered while the Spaniards, Portuguese, and British stoned, garroted, burned, raped, and pillaged advanced civilizations far more advanced in the tenth to fifteenth century in the Americas than were the barbarian settlements scattered throughout Europe.  This is especially true with the Inka in Peru, the Mayans and Aztecs of greater Mexico, and other civilizations from Chile to what would be plundered and restyled Brasil [the correct spelling–the names comes from pau-brasil {brasilwood: a red timber: mahogany}, as it is language is Portuguese] into a cruel, slave-owning, indigenous-people enslaving colony from the landing of Pedro Álvares Cabral in 1500 until 1815, becoming independent in 1822 as the Empire of Brasil) to the north of South America.  The the same time, Christian communities in Europe were in a state of continuing fratricidal warfare, rape of women and animals, and the slaughter of “heretics”.  This did not end for years, and found its putrefying pulse with courtiers in the court of Louis XIV urinating in the corners of Versailles rooms and galleries, while the Infanta of Spain was spinning yarns of lore rather than contributing concretely to a onetime integrated and tolerant society of Moors that would be undone with the Catholic sovereigns Isabella and Ferdinand unleashed the unholy Inquisition that drove Jews and Moslems into cellars and caves. 

In North America, the Puritans and Pilgrims began their own pestiferous pogroms in the name of Christ, attacking native Indians and introducing the internecion practice of scalping:  a ruthless ritual that had ancient Indo-European antecedents  especially among the Scythians of Eurasia (Scott, George Ryley (2003). History of Torture Throughout the Ages. Kessinger Publishing. p. 211), to prove the “naked savages were dead”.  While most rapacious acts were committed in arenas for the entertainment of the citizens of Rome, this did not end with the advent of Christianity; it escalated under the misrule of a new group of terrorists: those who fantasized scripture and had no knowledge of original documents, chief of this band of theological terrorists being Justin Martyr who slavishly Latinized existing Greek scrolls with such novelties as metamorphosing σταυρός (stake, as used in Attic prose) into crux (cross).  This does not follow any of the original scrolls, and the invention would cost millions their lives, the beginning of theological terrorism, capitalizing on the transmogrification of αγγελιαφόροι  (messengers both in prose and verse) into angelus (that did not exist in the original Greek language until it was mistransliterated into άγγελοι because of pressure from Rome) that had nothing to do with anything divine or any divinity–still, hundreds of thousands would sacrifice their lives over the pontificated premutation.

Hundreds of generations later, the iniquitous invokers of divine indignation who pastored Puritan and Pilgrim congregations did not abate their attacks on those not anointed by water and word to be among the elect until they successfully pushed the original aborigines inhabiting the woods out of their sanctuaries that lined the East Coast to the wastelands of Oklahoma, the inhospitable Dakotas, and ultimately to the West Coast.  To entrench Christianity, once the Indians who were not massacred but pushed onto reservations when Blacks enslaved  by other negroid people in Africa and sold to Arabs who in turn sold them to white European Christians to transport to the colonies in the Americas, groups of ministers claiming they followed the teachings of Jesus Christ of the New Testament organized three separate epochs of hate known as the Khristian Knights of the Ku Klux Klan:  The first claiming to be holy knights protecting the faith, but displaced after the Civil War in the USA with a more radicalized group that adopted white costumes: robes, masks, and conical hats similar to those depicted on witches in the Middle Ages, designed to be outlandish and terrifying, and to hide their identities that lasted from 1860-1870s before ebbing away into history (Elaine Frantz Parsons (2005). “Midnight Rangers: Costume and Performance in the Reconstruction-Era Ku Klux Klan”, Journal of American History 92.3: 811–836).  These were replaced by the next wave of Khristian Knights that flourished nationwide in the 1920s, finding home and welcome from New Jersey to California, Iowa to Louisiana, and beyond; they adopted the same costumes and code words as the first Klan, while introducing cross burnings that were especially popular when ignited on the lawns of Black homes and churches (Wade, Wyn Craig (1998). The fiery cross: the Ku Klux Klan in America. USA: Oxford University Press. p. 185.).  The third, and most vicious force, appeared after World War II.  Including both white males and females, they unanimously opposed the civil rights movement and progress among minorities–claiming that minorities were “uppity” and seeking to take jobs from America’s “Anglo-Saxon” and “Celtic” community.  Many lacked basic education but learned how to twist facts and claim that they were the ancestors of 19th-century nativism and claimed to be descent from the original 18th-century British colonial revolutionaries (Newton, Michael; Judy Ann Newton (1991). The Ku Klux Klan: An Encyclopedia. New York & London: Garland Publishing).

At first the KKK’s spiritual goal was to counter the number of Roman Catholics heading to North America, and later to keep Black people (niggers) and Jews “in their place”.  Christian evangelicals, who made up the majority of the KKK, fervently believed that Blacks had no souls.  The KKK claimed that the descendents of Canaan, whose father Ham had seen his father naked (Genesis 9:20-27; this passage has far older antecedents {14th-13thcentury BCE} as it is from the Hittite myth in which the supreme god


Anu whose genitals were “bitten off by his rebel son and cup-bearer Kumarbi, who afterwards rejoiced and laughed [as Ham is written to have done in Genesis] until Anu

Hurrati tablet on Kumarbi

cursed him”. (Ref. Graves, Robert and Patai, Raphael (1964), Hebrew Myths. The Book of Genesis, New York: Doubleday, 1964; London: Cassell, 1964, Ch 21, note 4); cf. Daly, John Patrick When Slavery Was Called Freedom: Evangelicalism, Proslavery, and the Causes of the Civil War in Religion in the South The University Press of Kentucky (31 Oct 2004) p. 37; cp. Johnson, Sylvester A. (2004). The myth of Ham in nineteenth-century American Christianity: race, heathens, and the people of God.  New York: Macmillan. p. 37) had damned Black people forever.  Later, in 1960, the KKK opposed the election and then the presidency of the only USA Roman Catholic: John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
Various groups have used Old Testament and New Testament scriptures to justify violence, as occurred in Robert Catesby’s 1607 Gunpowder Plot in England, backed by John Wright, Thomas Wintour, Thomas Percy, Guy Fawkes (who had ten years military experience fighting in the Spanish Netherlands in suppression of the Dutch Revolt, was put in charge of explosives), Robert Keyes, Thomas Bates, Robert Wintour, Christopher Wright, John Grant, Sir Ambrose Rookwood, Sir Everard Digby and Francis Tresham. Fawkes.  Numerous evangelical religious groups and individuals supported and participated in ritualistic killing as seen in the atrocities committed during the Crusades, especially those of Richard the Lionhearted; the slaughter of peasants and Jews justified in sermon and text (e.g.: Wider die räuberischen und mörderischen Rotten der Bauern) by the one-time Augustinian monk Martin Luther: Adolf Hitler’s spiritual father.  Luther told the nobility when the peasants leagued together and fought against their leaders who would deny them equality:

To kill a peasant is not murder; it is helping to extinguish the conflagration. Let there be no half measures! Crush them! Cut their throats! Transfix them! Leave no stone unturned! To kill a peasant is to destroy a mad dog!. . . Our princes must in the circumstances regard themselves as the officers of the divine wrath which bids them chastise such scoundrels. A prince who failed to do so would be sinning against God very badly. He would be failing in his mission. A prince who in such circumstances avoided bloodshed would become responsible for the murders and all the further crimes which these low swine might commit. It is no longer a question of tolerance, patience, pity. It is the hour of wrath and for the sword; the hour for mercy is past.” 

Luther’s god was a devil of hate, equal to the divinity worshipped by many evangelical extremists today.  Martin Luther noted:

It is a trifle for God to massacre a lot of peasants, when He drowned the whole world with a flood and wiped out Sodom with fire. He is an almighty and frightful God.”  Luther ends with the peroration: “Come, dearly-beloved lords and nobles, strike them, transfix them, and cut their throats with might and main. Should you find death in so doing, you could not wish for one more divine, for you would fall in obedience to God and in defending your like against the hordes of Satan.” 

Jesuits like John Ogilvie (Ogilby) (1580-1615) were under constant surveillance and threat from the Protestant governments of England and Scotland. Ogilvie was sentenced to death by a Glasgow court and hanged and mutilated on March 10, 1615.

Women accused of witchcraft were ordered hanged by evangelical pastors

Those who condemned Luther were condemned by Luther as “heretics”.  Luther’s vivid and angry condemnations led to the establishment of the Protestant Inquisition where various evangelicals worked to surpass the brutality of their opposing reformers. 

Calvin burns Servetus

Jean Calvin executed Miguel Servetus, Edward of England like his sister Mary Tudor kept the fires burning at Smithfield, which in time became known as the field of martyrs.  Such fields were common throughout Europe, with no one spared out of sympathy as preachers, priests, and predatory rulers demanded orthodoxy (theirs) of faith and allegiance to the crown, thus even simple people like the Mennonites were sacrified in an orgy of bloodletting.

Pastor Clifford Peeples ("Killing for Jesus")

The intolerance of past preying  evangelicals has escalated to the open warfare of current clergy. This was most graphically seen in the callousness of Pastor Clifford Peeples of the Bethel Pentecostal Church on Belfast ‘s Shankill Road who called for the killing of Roman Catholics and all who contested his right to proclaiming his version of the Gospels. 

Peeples was convicted, in 1999, of offences under the Prevention of Terrorism Act and sentenced to tend years imprisonment after being found guilty of being in

Miami Showband Massacre (book cover)

possession of hand grenades and a pipe bomb intended for use against Catholics on July 31, 1975.  Peeples was not unique nor did he act alone.  Peeples had numerous accomplices, especially among the Pentecostal clergy.  One of the most nefarious Christian carnivores calculating on the elimination of Roman Catholics and other “dissident elements” is  Pastor John Somerville.  Somerville, an associate of Peeples, had previously been convicted under the Prevention of Terrorism Act and had received a life sentence for his part in the Miami Showband massacre (a paramilitary attack at Buskhill, County Down, Northern Ireland, in the early morning of 31 July 1975; read: www.indymedia.ie/article/97326).  Somerville stayed in contact with Peeples and when Peeples was released from prison in 2004, the two evangelical pastors seized control of the Bethel Pentecostal Church on Berlin Street in west Belfast, banished the then-current Pastor John Hull, changed the locks on the church, and forced most of the congregation to flee.  Later Peeples appeared on BBC television to boast about how welcomed he was at his “home church.”  Bethel brethren had enough and was confronted by his former friends the first week of June 2005–and was forced to flee the Shankill Road, remembering how Peeples ran foul of the terror group of evangelicals, in the 1990s, in a row over protection money (http://saoirse32.blogsome.com/2005/06/12/pastor-pipe-bomb-peeples/).

Evangelical Christian Pastor Kenny McClinton

RUC chief constable, Ronnie Flanagan dubbed Peeples and his associates “the demon pastors” – specializing in recounting lurid stories of Catholic savagery towards Protestants, and in finding biblical justifications for Protestant retaliation. 

Peeples was not the only notable individual convicted for terrorism offences.  One of the most ghoulish is Pastor Kenny McClinton. McClinton is a convicted murderer who once advocated beheading Roman Catholics and impaling their heads on railings.  Arrested and tried, McClinton was declared a  terrorist and was handed two life sentences for murder and other acts of terrorist violence.  The local media put it rather mildly when it published analyses that McClinton had become a thorn in the side of the authorities.

Even in prison McClinton could not be tamed.  McClinton found himself in solitary confinement punishment cells fifteen times within one nine month period.  He found plenty of time for prayer and plotting to kill Roman Catholics, but he also found several admirers among the inmates of the prison.

Evangelical Christian Pastor Billy Wright, founder of the Loyalist Volunteer Force (LVF)

McClinton was equally matched by Born-again Christian preacher Billy Wright. Wright  became one of the most feared paramilitary figures in Northern Ireland.  Wright led his Christian militia since July 1996, launching a string of attacks on civilians (whom they identified as Catholics), killing at least five.  In April 1997, Wright was sentenced to eight years in Maze Prison.  On the morning of 27 December 1997, Wright was shot by two Irish National Liberation Army (INLA) while riding in a prison van from one end of the prison to the other by three other prisoners who objected to Wright “directing and waging his campaign of terror against the nationalist people from his prison cell in Long Kesh.”  For a full account, read The Starry Plough (March/April 1999), p. 10–11; read the BBC account online at http://news.bbc.co.uk/onthisday/hi/dates/stories/december/27/newsid_2546000/2546009.stm


A fanatical Baptist Christian group known as the National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) is no less than a radical rebel group operating in Tripura, North-East India.  These Baptist Christians have been universally described as engaging in terrorist violence motivated by their evangelical beliefs. 

The NLFT, identical to Bradlee Dean’s Junkyard Prophet Ministries and radical jihad Islam, demand immediate conversion and adoption of its rules and life style.  Hinduism is condemned as is using Hindu customs.  The NLFT mocks everything and everyone it does not agree with, goes on verbal rampages against incorrect life styles that do not match with what they identify with Christian values, and force their ideas on everyone.  Because of its far-right wing ideology and practices, the NLFT has been classified by the National Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism (MIPT) as one of the ten most active and deadly

Fate of Hindus who refused to convert to Christianity

terrorist groups in the world.  It has been accused of forcefully converting people to Christianity and published reports note that the group stops at nothing to convert non-Christians (primarily Hindus, but has no hesitancy in attacking Muslims, free-thinkers and others to their brand of hatred and violence). 

The state government reports that the Baptist Church of Tripura, aligned with Baptist churches in Texas, supplies arms and gives financial support to the NLFT, its leaders and preachers who proclaim that the NLFT is “doing the work of Jesus”.  The NLFT considers itself to be the Army of Jesus and by their war will awaken Jesus so that Jesus will take over as the senior General when he returns to the planet with a sword in his hand, citing Matthew 10:34 (read: Adam, de Cordier, Titeca, and Vlassenroot (2007). “In the Name of the Father? Christian Militantism in Tripura, Northern Uganda, and Ambon”. Studies in Conflict and Terrorism 30: 963; cf. http://www.satp.org/satporgtp/countries/india/states/tripura/documents/papers/nlft_const.htm).   

Evangelical Baptist Christian Sachin Debbarma (Head of NLFT)

While many would excuse or ignore the radicalism of the NLFT as a splinter group of loons, it is very real in India.  The India NLFT has the support of most evangelical extremists in the USA, with the endorsement of many Southern Baptist churches that send money to “further the NLFT’s mission to bring India to the Lord Jesus Christ,” interacting with those  who supply the NLFT with money that is officially being sent to its Baptist churches in India.  While western donations are sent to further “the message of the Gospel”, the money, in fact, ends up in the purchase of guns and ammunition to kill those who refuse to convert to Jesus. 

In April 2000, the secretary of the Noapara Baptist Church in Tripura, Nagmanlal Halam, was arrested with a large quantity of explosives that he had purchased with “love offerings” and “gifts to further ministry and message of Jesus” (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/717775.stm).  The Christian terrorist confessed that he had bought the arms illegally and was supplying explosives to the NLFT for the past two years to bring about the Kingdom of Jesus on earth that would be ruled with a military hand.

In August 2000, Shanti Tripura, a tribal Hindu spiritual leader, was executed in cold blood by ten evangelical conservative guerrillas who belong to the NLFT.  The evangelicals justify the assassination by claiming that they feel “marginalized” by the existing majority: Hindus who refuse to convert(http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/899422.stm and read: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/953200.stm).  

The NLFT repeatedly warns members that any one seen taking part in a Hindu festival will be killed.  The evangelical community of the NLFT admitted that the NLFT intends to convert all people in the state to Christianity to prepare for the final return of Jesus and the “end times”.  To make certain that all “turn to the Lord Jesus Christ”, in December 2000, the religious leader of the state’s second largest Hindu group, was boldly kidnapped by the military arm of the NLFT (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/1089578.stm).   

Like Shanti Tripura, Labh Kumar Jamatia was also found dead in a forest in Dalak village in southern Tripura after refusing to convert to Christianity. Originally the NLFT claimed the assassination was to “save the soul” of the Shanti.  The NLFT is not only out to “save the souls” of non-Christians, but is also kidnapping agnostics, atheists, and Marxists.  

Kishore (a title for the commander) Debbarma, a local Marxist leader, was clubbed to death in Tripura’s Sadar (north) by militants belonging to the Biswamohan faction of the NLFT in May 2005, after being dragged away at gunpoint by a group of NLFT militants.   When the police found Kishore Debbarma, it was difficult to recognize the local leader, as his body was found with multiple head injuries in a roadside ditch in the Katabon area (http://www.telegraphindia.com/1050517/asp/northeast/story_4747409.asp). 

NLFT executes youth who refuse conversion

On August 20 members of the National Liberation Front of Tripura (NLFT) ambushed a truck carrying jawans (it means “young men”, or derisively if the jawans refuse to convert to Christianity: donkeys) of the Tripura State Rifles from the hill town of Takarjala, about 35 km from Agartala, killing 20 of them on the spot and injuring five.  The militants, who had positioned themselves behind hillocks on both sides of the road, hurled grenades at the truck and brought it to a halt. The security personnel could do little as another group of militants unleashed a volley of gunfire from the paddy fields on either side. The evangelical militia took away 19 self-loading rifles, a light machine gun and a large quantity of ammunition from the truck. Senior police officials said they suspected that self-styled NLFT commander Kishore alias Lara Debbarma led the ambush.  Later, the NLFT put out a paper admitting to the assassination to “cause unrest” among the native people and make them more agreeable to their demands for forced conversions.  The ruling Communist Party of India (Marxist) that allows the people to believe as they wish, said in a statement issued on August 20 that the attack on the jawans was made to create panic as the militants were being isolated, owing to resistance by the people and effective measures by the security forces (read: http://www.hinduonnet.com/fline/fl1918/19180310.htm).

Televangelist Pat Robertson

The leaders of the NLFT argue that their strong ties to the Baptist world and especially to Baptist congregations in the southern tier of the USA will protect them from any prosecution.  They have noted that Pat Robertson has promised to fight for them in Congress with the followers of The Family of C Street in Washington, DC who vowed to stop any congressional investigation. 

Rajkumar, priest of the Naga Mandir on Bhuvan Pahar informed the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) members that he was forced by the Hmar (a sizeable group of Chin-Kuki-Mizo tribes in northeast India who speak a language that belongs to the Kuki-Chin-Naga group of Tibeto-Burman stock of the great Sino-Tibetan family of languages) to show them the tracks on the Pahar at gun point. Furthermore, the Hmar posted a flag, a tabloid and a Christian cross on the wall of one of the temples bearing date May 29, 2009.  Unlike the NLFT that claims allegiance to the Baptist religion, the Hmar recognize the Presbyterian confession as the only faith (http://articles.baltimoresun.com/1995-05-28/news/1995148077_1_tribe-hmar-choir) being brought to India in 1910 by Welsh Missionary Watkin Roberts (http://www.indianmirror.com/tribes/hmartribe.html).

Most of the Christian terrorists in India are brainwashed into accepting (at least on the surface) Christianity through an organization known as World Vision (http://www.dailypioneer.com/61677/RSS-wing-blames-Cong-MP-for-triggering-communal-tension-in-Kandhamal.html).  World Vision gets its money from what many call conscripted/force tithing of labor in the USA.

World Vision International was founded in the USA in 1977.  It is an extremist evangelical relief and development umbrella organization whose stated goal is “to follow our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in working with the poor and oppressed to promote human transformation, seek justice and bear witness to the good news of the Kingdom of God”.  Privately it mandates forced conversions, destruction of places of worship that World Vision does not find appropriate (or “Christian”) and sanctions violence in the name of peace (Ken Waters (1998): “How World Vision Rose From Obscurity To Prominence: Television Fundraising 1972-1982” American Journalism, 15, Nr. 4, 69-93).

World Vision Ethiopia

World Vision International is a bad joke, at best.  World Vision tells supporters and contributors that they are teaching English in poor, illiterate nations, such as Ethiopia.  Furthermore, World Vision International claims that it is giving new clothing to those without clothes or only wear rags; the international organization even brags about sending food to poor nations such as Ethiopia.  Public records do not present this fact.  To the contrary, official government records and private records and public testimonies state that the English language is not taught except to a select few (http://www.abc.net.au/foreign/content/2008/s2423906.htm).  Clothing and food sent in the name of World Vision does not arrive at the destinations selected.  Most of the food that is sent is fed to cattle.

The World Vision website states: “When you make a gift, your contributions are pooled with that of other sponsors of children in the community where your child lives. Your child receives health care, education, nutritious food, and the entire community benefits from access to clean water, agricultural assistance, medical care, and more” (The official website is at http://www.worldvision.org/ and while its motto is “Building a Better World for Children” it does not work to achieving that goal.  World Vision claims that “World Vision serves all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender” (http://www.worldvision.org/content.nsf/about/who-we-are) but the poor and workers in depressed cultures, such as exist in Bangladesh, Liberia, Ethiopia, and so forth insist that those who receive its charity convert to Christianity; cp. On fraud charges in Liberia, see: http://www.worldvision.org/content.nsf/about/20090604-liberia). 

The Foreign Correspondent responded to World Vision, noting: “World Vision has ignored the reporter’s surprise at finding his sponsor child speaks no English, yet he has been receiving regular reports from the organization that she’s learning English at school and has a good command of the language…, Andrew Geoghegan has sponsored Tsehaynesh Delago for a decade and yet she claims she was unaware, until recently, that she had a sponsor and says the only benefit she has ever received directly from World Vision is a pen and the denim jacket she wore on the day of filming” (ABC Material’s Foreign Correspondent, Foreign Correspondent story from Ethiopia broadcast, transmitted on 25 November 2008, Australian Broadcasting Corporation at http://www.abc.net.au/foreign/World_Vision_FCPResponse.htm).

Swami Lakshmanananda

World Vision India, a fervent and extremist evangelical Christian organization, lacks tolerance and charity it claims to be concerned with, especially helping children.  However, World Vision India and other branches have little respect, especially with its poor treatment of religious personnel who are not Christians.  World Vision has been accused of violence and attacks to eliminate a Hindu monk known as Swami Lakshmanananda.  It has been reprimanded, officially, for pumping money into India for religious conversion to evangelical Christianity.  During the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami relief assistance came with the proviso that recipients had to convert to Christianity.

Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati Orissa

Christians and Muslims.  He had run afoul of several evangelical Christian groups, especially evangelical Baptists and World Vision, as well as Maoist terrorists.

The Swami was severely injured in an attack by a Christian mob on Christmas Eve, 2007, who were demanding his immediate conversion and to call on those who followed him to recognize the Christian god and denounce the gods of their fathers.  World Vision India was one of the top recipients of funds for Christian evangelical missionary activity in India.  The donation was to go for food and clothing for the poor, but went, instead, for armaments to “help convert” the heathen, many of whom joined Maoist forces.  These groups, allegedly, hatched a plot to kill one of the most popular religious figures of the area:  Swami Laxamananda Saraswati who was more than 80 years old (the actual date of birth is unknown).  

Swami Lakmanananda Saraswati has been leading the Anti-Conversion Movement in the undivided Phulbani District of Orissa for several decades, claiming that the Christian evangelical movement is identical to the terrorist tactics of Islam mandating that its charitable recipients “embrace Islam” and “submit to Allah”  (http://www.newstodaynet.com/printer.php?id=3557).  His work was seen as a special uplifting force for his isolated tribal population who joined with him in opposing aggressive proselytizing from both Christians and Muslims.   To silence the revered Hindu leader Swami Laxmananand Saraswati he was attacked by Christian marauders at Brahmanaigaon in Kandhamal District on Christmas eve.  He survived and was taken to  a hospital in Cuttack (http://www.newstodaynet.com/printer.php?id=3557).  Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati accused his Member of Parliament and the chief of the missionary organisation, World Vision, Mr Radhakant Nayak for the attack on him, claiming that both supported and endorsed it. 

In Kandhamal District there have been blood baths over an illegally built and community rejected evangelical Christian church using its local Congress and Communist influence to indecorously acquire Government land, to build a church upon it, and then to actively recruit converts with promises of food, clothing, education while unpropitiously adumbrating physical harm if they failed to forsake their own gods and the gods of their forefathers.  Responding to questions from interviewers, Swami Lakshmanananda Saraswati noted:

There was no problem when Christians were not here in Paikia. With their numbers increasing, they forcefully took away Hindu girls and forced the neo-converts to eat beef. They set several temples on fire. Be it Birupakhya Mahadev´s temple or [the] temple at Malarimaha or my [temple] Ashram at Rupagoan, [as] the Christians conspired to set them [all] on fire. They threw mortal remains of cows [cows are the incarnation of the Hindu god Krishna (Christ: the central figure of Hinduism and author of the  Bhagavad Gita:  भगवद्गीता a 700-verse Hindu scripture) and are considered sacred] on mandirs. Kondh tribal´s Goddess Dharani Mata´s places of worship in several villages were dishonoured. The sacred sword at a temple at Bramhanigaon was forcibly taken away by the converts who melted the sword in public and prepared their weapons with that looted material. What was the need to do so?

In this regard, the NLFT has become the model for other evangelical Christian terrorist cells, including the Manmasi National Christian Army (MNCA).  The MNCA is composed of no less than fifteen rebels and various cells.  They have been forcing the Hindu residents of Bhuvan Pahar, under the threat of gun to convert to Christianity (http://www.assamtimes.org/social/3112.html), and afterwards to giving up their goods and wealth to buy arms to force more conversions—and encourage the rapid return of Jesus and his spiritual army.  All dress in black with a red cross on their back along with arms and carry assault weapons and rifles (http://assamtribune.com/scripts/details.asp?id=jun2309/State3).  They demand that entire villages and their Hindu priests convert to Christianity (http://www.sanghparivar.org/blog/rkm/shocking-stories-from-assam-gun-point-conversions-by-christian-terrorists and http://rajeev2004.blogspot.com/2009/06/armed-christian-rogues-forcing-hindus.html and http://www.hindujagruti.org/news/7267.html), that women become docile and subservient to men, and that men assert themselves as Christian warriors—more in keeping with the mediaeval mentality than modern thought.  When local residents refused to convert to Christianity, the miscreants, the Manmasi National Christian Army cadres painted the symbol of a cross that they claimed represented their living warrior god on the wall of the temples with human blood (http://www.assamtribune.com/scripts/details.asp?id=jun2309/State3). The terrorism launched by Christian evangelicals is nothing less than the complement of the radical Islamic jihadists who have been attacking and slaughtering Hindus for years.

Victims of Wandhama massacre. Twenty three Hindus were killed by Islamic terrorists.

Like evangelical extremists in the USA and Europe, the MNCA is strengthened by a radicalized youth that carry guns and frequently visiting Bhuvan Pahar, which had nearly 700 Hindu people as well as eight Hindu temples (http://www.assamtribune.com/scripts/details.asp?id=jun2309/State3).  Jealous for Jesus, and screaming the Christian message of “convert or die” like medieval crusaders Christian and Muslim, the youths approached with gun in one hand and the Bible in the other hand, demanding that everyone convert to Christianity or die a slow death (on ease of access to firearms in India by radicalized youth, read: http://www.abhijeetsingh.com/arms/india/stats/; cp. http://www.inpui.com/2011/04/manmasi-national-christian-army-flag.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Inpui+%28Inpui%29).

The youth, many who had been trained by the Dallas-based Campus Crusade for Christ, demanded a meeting with the villagers in Tezpur village on the Bhuvan Pahar where they forcibly distributed Bible among the citizens; those who threw the book away, seeing it as an insult to their gods, were pistol whipped or murdered, with one youth shoving the Bible down the throat of one old man who refused to convert.  After terrorizing the village, the youth for Jesus, without permission or local government sanction, forced the building of a Christian Church in Tezpur village (http://www.assamtimes.org/social/3112.html; cf. http://www.loonwatch.com/2010/10/meet-the-lords-resistance-army-fighters-for-jesus/; cp. http://www.loonwatch.com/2010/10/meet-the-lords-resistance-army-fighters-for-jesus/; for a comparison between Christian and Muslim missionary zeal, read: http://newsweek.washingtonpost.com/onfaith/panelists/ramdas_lamb/2010/03/missionaries_the_good_the_bad_and_the_ugly.html).

The NLFT and MNCA, both Baptist fellowships, follow the same philosophy as Oral Roberts who declared on his television show: “God will call me home [kill me] if I do not [receive sufficient donations] (http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,964970,00.html).  His wild exaggerations are only outdone and surpassed by the better known hate monger and close friend of murderous dictators Charles Taylor of Liberia (http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/pat-robertsons-gold-deal-african-dictator/story?id=9749341) and Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire, Marion G.

Sworn documents show that Robertson’s trips and investments in Zaire were to obtain wealth to enhance his personal billion dollar empire, with only two trips for “evangelization”. 

Viriginia Governor James Gilmore

Those whom Robertson bought were Virginia Attorney General Mark Earley, and Governor Jim Gilmore. Both men received campaign contributions from Robertson during the 1997 statewide elections; and, Robertson was a member of Gilmore’s transition-advisory team. Earley received $35,000 from Mr. Robertson, and Gilmore $50,000 (http://www.skeptictank.org/robem2.htm).  Robertson, along with US Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) and Fox News’ talk show host Glenn Beck continued supporting Ivory Coast dictator and mass murderer Laurent Gbagbo (who the Oklahoma Senator calls Laurent Gbagbo and his wife “good friends” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T57CSvZF6BM) and his powerful wife (both are an evangelical Christians) and publicly boasts that he has “longtime ties to the Christian right in the United States,” (http://www.salon.com/news/politics/war_room/2011/03/30/ivory_coast_christian_right_gbagbo), in part through a secretive international network of powerful evangelical Christians known as the Fellowship (where Inhofe lives with Ensign and other adulterers such as South Carolina Governor Mark Stanford and Rep.

He came to take over.”

One of the Family’s leaders is Doug Coe “the Younger”.  He has a unique interpretation of what Jesus will do when he comes in a blaze of war and hate at the Second Coming: “he asked a young man who’d put himself, body and soul, under the Family’s authority, “Let’s say I hear you raped three little girls. What would I think of you?” The man guessed that Coe would probably think that he was a monster. “No,” answered Coe, “I wouldn’t.” Why? Because, as a member of the Family, he’s

among what Family leaders refer to as the “new chosen.” If you’re chosen, the normal rules don’t apply” if you help Douglas Coe and his clan obtain world domination for Jesus and make the Coe family leaders of the world.   Between 2000 and 2010, the one-time tax exempt organization spent just over $101,000 on 13 foreign trips for Members of Congress to meet and pray with political leaders in other countries, according to Congressional travel records.  Radical right evangelical fundamentalist Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-Ala.) alone accepted seven trips from the C Street evangelical fundamentalist group in the past four years, at a total value of $62,000. In 2006, Aderholt accepted three fellowship-funded trips — to Kazakhstan, Sudan and Serbia — worth a total of about $28,000.  In September 2010, Aderholt spent a week in Greece, Albania and Croatia on a trip funded by the Fellowship Foundation at a cost of about $11,000. 

Robert Aderholt (R-AL)

According to a detailed itinerary on file with the Clerk of the House, Aderholt arrived in Greece in time for the closing of the annual Southeast European Gathering (a Balkan version of the National Prayer Breakfast) that he has attended several times on the foundation’s dime.   Aderholt spokesman DJ Jordan said in an e-mail: “As an active participant with the National Prayer Breakfast since his first term in the House, Congressman Aderholt has traveled with the International Foundation to the Balkan Prayer Breakfast as a representative of the House Prayer Breakfast group with the hopes of promoting different factions working together and discussing the life and teachings of Jesus.”  {http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/sen-inhofe-c-street-and-jesus-thing}; see the video on Senator Inhofe’s “foreign fact-finding” missions where he did not go to learn of conditions elsewhere, but to “bring people to Jesus” {http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/sen-inhofes-jesus-thing} at

God has already given us the victory,” Simone Gbagbo, who is both first lady and politician in her own right, said at a rally in January. Both Gbagbos have attended the National Prayer Breakfast, a big annual Washington event run by the secretive Christian group known as the Family, or the Fellowship.  Inhofe of Oklahoma told the terrorist’s wife that it was Jesus’ wish that all non-Christians and homosexuals be put to death so that “Jesus would come in full glory.” Inhofe is accompanied to African dictatorship by his director of African Affairs, Charles Sublett who donated $6850 to Inhofe’s reelection campaign and is a Christian evangelical missionary who actively supports all Christians who attempt to force conversion to his interpretation of Jesus of the New Testament.

Alassane Ouattara who was elected president of Ivory Coast but vote disqualified by incumbent

The man who defeated Gbagbo is a Muslim. His name is Alassane Ouattara and every organization that oversaw the election and supervised the counting proclaimed him the winner; however, Christian evangelicals rejected his election in favor of “a fellow evangelical Christian” and friend of Pat Robertson (http://thinkprogress.org/security/2011/04/05/156002/james-inhofe-glenn-beck-pat-robertson-ivory-coast/) who has a long history of supporting dictators, taking note from Martin Luther’s Address to the German Nobility that subjects do not have a right to disobey or defy a ruler, but must be obedient even if it mean their death [cf. Luther, Martin, Werke, [LW] 46:50-51). 

Laurent Gbagbo of Ivory Coast

With money supplied by evangelical groups from Pat Robertson’s 700 Club to evangelical communities supporting Bob Vander Plaats in Iowa, money is illegally funneled to Gbagbo in an attempt to prop up the dictator and defeat democracy.  Gbagbo has stated that he wants to create a Christian theocracy that would disallowed religious pluralism, matching Michele Bachmann’s claim that  “God’s government is a theocracy” where human and civil rights have no place (read: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2011/06/14/michele-bachmanns-unrivaled-extremism-gay-rights-to-religion.html and http://www.tnr.com/article/politics/92383/michele-bachmann-politics-republican-migraine and http://jpundit.typepad.com/jci/2011/07/theocracy-and-second-comings-bachmann-goldberg-and-me.html).  The ministers of Bachmann’s recycling  faith, from Lutheran extremism (the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod: WELS)  (http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2011/07/michele-bachmanns-church-says-the-pope-is-the-antichrist/241909/),  to evangelical (http://www.christiancentury.org/blogs/archive/2011-07/slightly-lutheran-congresswoman and http://www.huliq.com/12092/michele-bachman-switches-anti-christs),  to Baptist (each chosen for political expediency), are subordinate to her craving for the evangelical Jesus menacingly mangled message of hate hortatorily honed-in by Heavy Metal drummer and self-ordained Bradlee Dean (his real name is Bradley Smith; he has no theological or biblical education) of Junkyard Prophet is a 6’5″ and heavily tattooed (it is forbidden in his Bible as can be read at Leviticus 19:28:  וְשֶׂרֶט לָנֶפֶשׁ לֹא תִתְּנוּ בִּבְשַׂרְכֶם וּכְתֹבֶת קַעֲקַע לֹא תִתְּנוּ בָּכֶם אֲנִי יְהוָה׃) survivor of multiple drug overdoses and stints in jail and only of late converted to evangelical Christianity while ignoring Matthew 6:6 (συ δε οταν προσευχη εισελθε εις το ταμιειον σου και κλεισας την θυραν σου προσευξαι τω πατρι σου τω εν τω κρυπτω και ο πατηρ σου ο βλεπων εν τω κρυπτω αποδωσει σοι εν τω φανερω) that is a repeat of 2 Kings 4:33 ( וַיָּבֹא וַיִּסְגֹּר הַדֶּלֶת בְּעַד שְׁנֵיהֶם וַיִּתְפַּלֵּל אֶל־יְהוָה׃), when he prayed in the House Chamber of the Minnesota Legislature (http://www.minnpost.com/dailyglean/2010/06/04/18683/portraits_of_intolerance and http://wonkette.com/450201/homophobe-pastor-knows-media-only-mocking-him-to-get-to-michele-bachmann) and claims that Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison is advancing Islamic (Sharia) law through the homosexual agenda (Islam prohibits homosexuality, and in Iran, Iraq, and other Muslim controlled states, the penalty for homosexuality is death—which Dean agrees with (http://minnesotaindependent.com/74635/bradlee-dean-keith-ellison-is-advancing-sharia-law-through-homosexual-agenda) and has made it clear to anyone who will listen to his untrained mind that it is “morally okay” to kill homosexuals (http://minnesotaindependent.com/58393/gop-linked-punk-rock-ministry-says-executing-gays-is-moral, cp. http://minnesotaindependent.com/59568/hard-rock-ministry-says-jailing-gays-is-right-thing-to-do).   Later Dean argued that his words were taken “out of context” and by publicizing them, their publication (being read by Rachel Maddow on MSNBC without comment: http://www.businessinsider.com/rachel-maddow-bradlee-dean-lawsuit-2011-7; see the video at http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/26315908/#38633909) did him irreparable harm: http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/2011/07/anti-gay_preachers_lawyer_rachel_maddows_career_is.php; cp. http://www.deathandtaxesmag.com/123824/gays-should-sue-bradlee-dean-for-defamation-video/ and http://lezgetreal.com/2011/06/bradlee-deans-moral-obligation-to-execute-gays-in-the-name-of-jesus/). After  Pastor Mac

Pastor Mac Hammond

Hammond of the Living Word Christian Center, a Brooklyn Park mega-church whose sermons emphasize the sickness that he sees in the actions of others as sins (he gives a unique twist to Matthew 7:5, but one in keeping with evangelical conservativism that is representative of Tea Party psychology and that of the “soldiers of Christ” who have been waging war against non-evangelicals around the world), gave Rep. Michele Bachmann a campaign donation of $2,100 this campaign cycle Bachmann exclaimed “I am a fool for Christ” (a phrase that comes from 1 Corinthians 4:10, but is incomplete: the full passage is ημεις μωροι δια χριστον υμεις δε φρονιμοι εν χριστω ημεις ασθενεις υμεις δε ισχυροι υμεις ενδοξοι ημεις δε ατιμοι.  The passage is a reference to being seen as without merit or facts at hand–which today would be referred to as “snake oil salesmen”.  Martin Luther gave it a more exciting definition when the former Augustinian monk declared that the speaker was stating that academic knowledge was not everything unless it worked for Jesus–which is not in the original text; the text itself is written by different hands); however, the pastor is not a member of her Congressional district and cannot make endorsements, by federal law, from a pulpit  (http://minnesotaindependent.com/4941/pastor-mac-hammond-still-%e2%99%a5-michele-bachmann), a far-right evangelical Lutheran group (Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod: WELS) that includes statements that the “pope is the anti-Christ” and sides with all of Martin Luther’s statements including the slaughter of workers who strike, protest, or slow down work production (http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/religion/michele-bachmanns-former-church-explains-popeanti-christ-claims/2011/07/15/gIQAzMG7FI_story.html and http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/bachmann-left-church-at-pastors-request-official-says/2011/07/15/gIQAfGGuGI_story.html?wpisrc=nl_cuzheads).  When Bachmann left the Salem Lutheran church in St. Paul, Minnesota, she received the support of the Roman Catholic Church (http://www.christianpost.com/news/michele-bachmann-leaves-church-gets-catholic-support-52384/).  Bachmann now attends the new mega-church Eagle Brook Church that is affiliated with the Baptist General Convention (http://www.abpnews.com/content/view/6577/53/).  

Tim Pawlenty and Tom Petters (of the Petters Ponzi scheme)

Bachmann is not alone in Tea Party favorites being the poster child for far-right causes. Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, while shying from the Petters Ponzi scheme (run by Frank Vennes who is alleged to have been a facilitator, or conduit, used by Petters, who was an intimate of Pawlenty, to lure primarily Christian organizations into investing in Petters’ companies through Metro Gem—one of Vennes’ companies—or through the Fidelis Foundation, which served as a fiscal agent for Minnesota Teen Challenge. Among those investors was Minnesota Teen Challenge, which allegedly lost $5.7 million in investments in Petters companies) continues to accept cash donations from principles in the “venture” and uses the endorsement of companies that defrauded many religious organizations   (http://powerwall.msnbc.msn.com/politics/pawlenty-bachmann-and-the-rights-ponzi-scandal-1686979.story and http://j-simmaans.newsvine.com/_news/2011/05/02/6570344-pawlenty-bachmann-sought-pardon-for-minnesota-donor-accused-in-ponzi-scheme-the-daily-beast and watch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9K3eHITDmt8; cp. http://www.startribune.com/politics/national/124168118.html; cf. http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=160×37126).  The former governor of Minnesota has several close friends now convicted of narcotics trafficking and money-laundering and some are running as Republicans.  Pawlenty is not only another poster child, but, like Bachmann is affiliated with the Baptist community, which helps him with southern-tiered states, such as Texas and the Deep South.  Pawlenty and his family attend Wooddale Church in Eden Prairie, Minnesota that supports “mission work to the heathens [of India and north Africa] and is aligned with the Baptist General Conference (http://www.heal-online.org/StraightandTeenChallenge.htm).

Westboro Baptist Church Kansas USA

Televangelist Pat Robertson continues to proclaim that his god will destroy America in a manner consistent with, but lacking the biting acerbity of Westboro Baptist Church in the State of Kansas.  Westboro Baptist Church has a rare acidity in its approach: its is baiting, bashing, banging and openly maligning those it opposes.  It marches against gays, carrying signs advocating the slaughter of LGBT people, and has bought the US Supreme Court’s endorsement for the right to read and speak harmful and hurtful messages near the funerals of US military personnel killed in active duty, even when the individual was not known to be LGBT. Westboro Baptist Church is virulently anti-Semitic and has flown to New York to demonstrate against rabbis and homosexuals (http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/2011/07/westboro_baptis_6.php).

Phelps has declared that all Jews are “Christ killers” and that Hitler was a friend of Jesus.  On the Westboro Baptist Church website FAQ, Phelps has emblazoned:

Westboro Baptist Church Kansas hates Jews

The only true Jews are Christians. The rest of the people who claim to be Jews aren’t, and they are nothing more than typical, impenitent sinners … the vast majority of Jews support fags. In fact, it is the official policy of Reformed Jews to support same-sex marriage. Of course, there are Jews who still believe God’s law, but most of them have even departed from that. It doesn’t matter if you’re a Jew or a Gentile…as long as you believe in Christ.

On March 25, 2006 Westboro Baptist Church released a flier regarding a Jewish adversary of Phelps.  The flier uses the phrase “bloody Jew” four times and the phrase “evil Jew” more than once in every twelve sentences. Phelps attitude against Judaism, which matches that of Martin Luther Von den Jüden und jren Lügen where the sixteenth century protestant reformer wrote: The Jews “are full of the devil’s feces … which they wallow in like swine,” {Oberman, Heiko (1854), ed. Luthers Werke. Erlangen, 32:282, 298} and the synagogue is an “incorrigible whore and an evil slut” Oberman, op. cit., 5:406}, can be found at the ADL’s website: http://www.adl.org/learn/ext_us/WBC/WBC-on-Jews.asp?LEARN_Cat=Extremism&LEARN_SubCat=Extremism_in_America&xpicked=3&item=WBC.

Luther’s admonition, one that Adolf Hitler followed religious on reading the German’s tract was simple, and the foundation for Westboro Baptist Church and evangelical Christians in Africa and India:

(1) Jewish synagogues and schools are to be burned to the ground, and the remnants buried out of sight;

(2) homes, houses and other dwellings and structures owned by Jews are to be razed, and the owners made to live in agricultural outbuildings, sheds and privies (outhouses);

(3) Jewish religious writings to be taken away and destroyed;

(4) rabbis are to be forbidden to preach, and executed if they preach

(5) for safe conduct on the roads to be abolished for Jews and if anyone harms a Jew, the Jew is to be arrested for causing the anger leading to the provocation and attack;

(6) usury (interest required on a loan) is to be prohibited, and all silver and gold to be removed and “put aside for safekeeping”; 

(7) all Jews are to be put to work as agricultural slave labor.

Hindus come in for special evangelical denunciation. The Westboro Baptist Church website release this message: “If you would STOP worshipping false gods, being a fag would not be a complex matter. Stop going a whoring after other gods and start serving the Living God in truth!” (http://www.godhatestheworld.com/india/falsereligion.html)

Westboro Baptist Church at 3701 West 12th Street, Topeka, Kansas, United States

Fred Phelps, patriarch of the church, claims that he and his family (the bulk of the congregation) have conducted over 30,000 pickets, in all 50 states, in over 500 cities and towns.  Believing that they have a Constitutional right in the USA to do as they wish, the family attacks verbally and physically those it openly hates; but in 1995, Phelps Sr.’s eldest grandson, Benjamin Phelps, was convicted of assault and disorderly conduct after spitting upon the face of a passerby during a picket (the conviction was upheld by an appeals court: http://cjonline.com/indepth/phelps/stories/052497_phelps.shtml).

 “Pastors” such as Scott Lively, Richard Cohen, Bradlee Dean,  (http://www.theage.com.au/opinion/politics/the-role-of-us-evangelists-in-ugandas-kill-the-gays-bill-20100111-m2lf.html) and Caleb Lee Brundidge (a self-professed former gay man who conducts sessions to heal homosexuality), and Don Schmierer, a board member of Exodus International, an organization devoted to promoting “freedom from homosexuality through the power of Jesus Christ” have worked at getting the nation of Uganda to kill its 500,000 homosexuals (The Anti Homosexuality Bill. 2009. Warren Throckmorton website: http://wthrockmorton.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/anti-homosexuality-bill-2009.pdf  (this site is linked from The New York Times story by Jeffrey Gettleman: http://topics.nytimes.com/top/news/international/countriesandterritories/ uganda/index.html?scp=4&sq=Jeffrey%20Gettleman%20antihomosexual%20uganda%20bill&st=cse;  cf. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/14/world/africa/14uganda.html? _r=1&ref=uganda).  Uganda’s Christians know little and speak less about a tender and loving Jesus who rejects judgments of others (Matthew 7:1, cp. Acts 10:24) tend to be war mongers, rapists, and thieves.

Lord's Resistance Army and child soldiers

In Uganda “The Lord’s Resistance Army”, whose fighters (abductees who are forced to attend religion and bible classes) wear rosary beads and recite passages from the Bible before battle, are led by Joseph Kony (born 1961) who believes literally in the words printed in Matthew 10:34.  Kony proclaims himself to be the spokesperson of God and a spirit medium (which is forbidden for any man or woman to be in Leviticus 20:27:  וְאִישׁ אֹו־אִשָּׁה כִּי־יִהְיֶה בָהֶם אֹוב אֹו יִדְּעֹנִי מֹות יוּמָתוּ בָּאֶבֶן יִרְגְּמוּ אֹתָם דְּמֵיהֶם בָּם׃ ף and requires the medium to be stoned to death; and is a refinement of Exodus 20:22. It originally appears in Leviticus 19:31 and 20:2 where the medium is considered equal to a worshipper of Molech; the references are to Babylonian theology taken from ancient Canaan;

Joseph Kony (L) leader of Lord's Resistance Army (November 2, 2006)

Deuteronomy 18:11 defines the medium as someone who consults with the dead: a witch doctor or soothsayer who engages in necrophilia, cp. 1 Chronicles 10:13-14), and sees himself primarily as being int incarnation of the “Holy Spirit” (that the Acholi {an ethnic group from the districts of Agago, Amuru, Gulu, Kitgum, Nwoya, Lamwo, and Pader in Northern Uganda, and Magwe County in South Sudan and number over one million people} believe can represent itself in many manifestations), thrives under the protection of the current corrupt clergy-controlled Christian government, feed off of charitable contributions from Baptists in the USA, and a largess of wealth from televangelists in the English-speaking world.  Joseph Kony fears nothing, and fears no one, as he considers himself divinely protected at all time from the wrath of mortals since he is “one with god”  (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/shared/spl/hi/picture_gallery/04/africa_ugandan_rebels_come_home/html/6.stm and http://www.nytimes.com/2002/08/04/world/uganda-s-terror-crackdown-multiplies-the-suffering.html). This paramilitary group is at best a cult guerrilla army engaged in an armed rebellion against the Ugandan

Lou Engle

government from which it regularly and successfully extorts money.  It has been accused of using child soldiers and committing numerous crimes against humanity: including massacres, abductions, mutilation, torture, rape, chained porters, and sex slaves.  None of this is condemned by the Christian communities or their congregations throughout Uganda where Christianity is a mixture of contemporary evangelism and rural paganism.  It is against this backdrop where an evangelical Christian from Missouri, Lou Engle (who is associated with The Call: a Pentecostal and Evangelical Christian event including worship and fasting Saturday on the National Mall and demands all convert to Christianity or face the fires of hell), held an event in Uganda at which the bill to kill all homosexuals (except those used as sex or worker slaves by The Lord’s Resistance Army) was promoted; ref. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/ 8308912.stm), matching the insanity of Andres Behring Breivik preoccupation and covert curiosity about one of nature’s normal and common biological realities, while others or to seek to bring about the “end times“.

Beverly and Time LeHaye (Rapture Ready)

The “end times” is an ancient Egyptian fable, revisited by those out to make a quick dollar, such as Beverly and Tim LaHaye.  The LaHayes claim that “end times” is described in the New Testament (they’re misreading Revelation 1:1 and attempting to buttress it with the fable at Matthew 25:5, which has no genuine time frame and comes from an old Babylonian legend; what is startling is that evangelical fundamentalists ignore Matthew 25:13 that clearly states no one will ever calculate or know the end of time [it is repeated in verses 22-24; it is found nowhere else in the Bible]: γρηγορειτε ουν οτι ουκ οιδατε την ημεραν ουδε την ωραν εν η ο υιος του ανθρωπου ερχεται).  The LeHayes must be unfamiliar with 2 Peter 1:20: τοῦτο πρῶτον γινώσκοντες ὅτι πᾶσα προφητεία γραφῆς ἰδίας ἐπιλύσεως οὐ γίνεται. 

There are those who publicly proclaim they seek to establish (or reestablish reminiscent of the Puritan theocracy in the Massachusetts Bay Colony: http://www.arockinmyshoe.com/theocracy.html ) a Christian theocracy (Michele/Marcus Bachmann, Oral Roberts, Rick Santorum, Pat Buchannan) in the USA, rewriting history and inventing creeds similar to Sarah Palin.  In each case, their writings testify to their desire to see homosexuals killed either through juridical action or by group anger.

Anders Behring Breivik bought chemicals and equipment from British traders on eBay

In his 1,500-page manifesto, confessed Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik, a self-proclaimed evangelical Christian, insisted that he acted in allegiance to a resurrected version of the Knights Templar: a medieval formation of Christian soldiers who waged brutal battle against Islam for control of the Holy Land and its relics.   Breivik wrote favorably of the mentorship of a British man known as “Richard (the Lionhearted),” who he credited for imparting to him the secrets of the Templar tradition.  

There actually is a “Knights Templar” functioning in 2011.  Its leader is Paul Ray (registered at birth as Paul Sonato, but later took his mother’s surname), living in exile on the island of Malta (http://news.yahoo.com/ap-exclusive-knights-templar-says-no-norway-tie-223243535.html). 

Paul Ray ("Richard Lionhearted" Head of Malta's Knights Templar 2011)

Ray confirmed that he is associated with “a loose group of anti-Islamic extremists inspired by the Knights Templar,” but denied that Breivik was associated with the group, or that he had served as Breivik’s mentor.   Ray noted: “My thoughts are the same  [as Breivik] … that there is a threat to our way of life from Islam. I’m not going to say I don’t think there is, because I do.”

Ray, Breivik, Dean and the Bachmanns, like most illiterate Tea Baggers and conservatives conveniently forget while spewing their hatred, that the Arabs gave to the world Arabic numerals, the zero (صفر), most modern sciences (including in algebra, chemistry, geology, spherical trigonometry), nautical directions, sugar (سكّر), coffee (قهوة), the artichoke (أرضِ شوكي) and orange (نارنج), cotton (قطن), gauze (قز) [raw silk], and so forth while Scandinavia, Europe, Malta and North America were living in a Dark Age of ignorance and hatred by a church that instigated the Inquisitions, raped its way across the greater and more majestic civilizations of the Americas, and forced a religion of hate upon most people (cf. Peters, Edward (1989), Inquisition: Dissent, Heterodoxy and the Medieval Inquisitional Office. University of California Press; the most vile of all inquisitions was maintained in Perú [1570-1820] where native Peruano were viewed as “people without reason” [gente sin razón], who, along with individuals of African descent, mestizos, women, and Jewish or Protestant Europeans seeking refuge from religious persecution, felt the full weight of the Augustinians, Jesuits, Franciscans and Dominicans for “crimes” such as heresy, sorcery, witchcraft, and “other superstitious practices” that led to torture and execution: Irene Silverblatt (2004), Modern Inquisitions: Peru and the Colonial Origins of the Civilized World. Durham, NC: Duke University Press, and Teodoro Hampe-Martinez (1996). “Recent Work on the Inquisition and Peruvian Colonial Society, 1570-1820”.  Latin American Research Review. Vol. 31 No.2 (1996).

It was the Arabs who preserved Greek learning, the philosophies of Socrates, Plato, Aristotle and others, kept and preserved ancient texts that today disprove most of Medieval Europe’s premises and pretenses, while creating medical schools and hospitals that were not matched in Europe until the eighteenth century—with most still using old Arabic medical books—while developing the sciences of optics and physics, advancing music and creating musical instruments not heard of in the Christian world: the rebec (ancestor of violin) from the rebab (بابة or ربابة – “a bowed (instrument)”), the guitar from يثارةر qitara, and so forth. While the list can go on for hundreds of pages, it must be noted that the Islamic world (not just the Arab world) contributed to the production of sugar from sugar cane, water clocks, pulp and paper, silk, and the manufacture of perfume. Fulling mills and advances in mill technology came to the West through Islam as did the use inventions like the suction pump, noria (Arabic: ناعورة‎, nā‘ūra, from Syriac: ܢܥܘܪܐ, nā‘urā)  a machine for lifting water into a small aquaduct) and chain pumps for irrigation purposes.

21st century Knights Templar UK

Ray writes an anti-Muslim blog called “Lionheart” after King Richard I of England, who lead the 12th-century Third Christian crusades, and was one of the great mass-murderers who declared himself to be a Christian and was hailed by the church as a Christian to be imitated: from his adulterous and homosexual affairs (Flori, Jean (1999), Richard Coeur de Lion: le roi-chevalier, Paris: Biographie Payot, pp. 448-464 and concludes that Richard’s “vice” was sodomy, but on page 464 states that Richard was bisexual to his court and official biographers, a common excuse before the days of self-actualization and self-acceptance which may have made him more acceptable to Breivik) to his plunder and slaughter of women and children.  The Lionhearted King slaughtered over 2,700 at Acre in one day, claiming he was saving the world from Muslims (making حرب صليبية that became synonymous with mass murder and called for جهاد [jihad: struggle for the faith, originally it did not mean a “holy war” as the word was originally opposed to violence: cf. Patricia Crone (2005), Medieval Islamic Political Thought (Edinburgh University Press), p. 363] it meant a “struggle for a cause”: جاهََدَ، يجاهِد، الجهاد), and killed tens of thousands more while in Palestine (Itinerarium Peregrinorum et Gesta Regis Ricardi, ed. William Stubbs, Rolls Series, (London: Longmans, 1864) III, 1, 5, 13, 17–18); for a lucid reading, consider: James Jr Reston (2001). Warriors of God: Richard the Lionheart and Saladin in the Third Crusade. Random House, New York).  When Saladin fought back, he slaughtered 4000 to 10,000 crusaders as a way to avenge Richard’s brutality (Ibn Al-Athir, XII, 20-6; Gabrieli, Francesco (1957). Storici Arabi delle Crociate. [Torino] : Einaudi; see chapter four in Arab Historians of the Crusades, ed. and trans. by Francesco Gabrieli; translated from the Italian by E. J. Costello.

Ray told the AP that he has embraced the Templar tradition in an effort to drive home the threat of Muslim immigration. “Muslims in (England) trying to take over our country. Let’s not pretend it’s not happening. They are actively declaring their vision to take our country over.” He told the AP he did not approve of Breivik’s methods, however, although Breivik’s actions do match those of the Knights Templar.

Michele Bachmann supports Bradlee Dean

The original Knights were not at all peace-loving; quite to the contrary, they were blood-thirsty, unscrupulous, cruel, attacked women and children, burned elderly people, stole from the poor and rich, and were constantly worried about their sexual identity—much as are today’s Christian evangelicals such as Marcus Bachmann who attempts to “pray away the gay” and where Michele Bachmann feels sexually intimidated in a publish wash room if there are two other women in the same facility. As Time writer Ishaan Tharoor writes (http://globalspin.blogs.time.com/2011/07/27/the-knights-templar-a-brief-history-of-the-militant-order-norways-terror-suspect-sought-to-resurrect/): the Knights Templar formed at the site of the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, which fell into Christian control after the first crusade of 1099, and were known as ruthless warriors. They extorted enormous gold and precious-metal tributes from Jewish and Muslim subjects in the Middle East, as well as among the unfortunate Christian populations in Europe who came into their path (cp. http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/source/usamah2.html).

Mexico Drug Cartels: The Family

As hard-core advocates of white ethnic purity, Breivik and Ray would no doubt be baffled to learn that a new Mexican drug cartel calls itself the Knights Templar. According to a report in Al Jazeera, this latest twist on the Templar legend was the brainchild of a schoolteacher named Servando Gomez Martinez (a.k.a. La Tuta or El Profe).  “The Professor”  executes those who will not buy (or will not pay when the drugs are delivered) or have had relations with others he does not feel are fit and proper.  He is the leader. “The Professor” acts as father to everyone around him, making rules, dispensing punishments, and rendering judgments.

Servando Gomez Martinez ("La Tuta")

Servando Gomez Martinez was born on February 6, 1966).  He is one of the senior Mexican leaders in one of Mexico’s many drug cartels headquartered in the Mexican state of Michoacán.  Gomez Martinez  considers himself as part of La Familia: The Family (based after the pseudo-Christian Family group on C Street in Washington, DC, and Bob Vander Plaats FAMiLY in Iowa).  When initiating new drug traffickers, Gomez Martinez has members dress up in full medieval Templar regalia, and swear out loyalty oaths that are confirmed in blood.  There are special dress codes and approved actions:  The Knights of the Temple that Gomez Martinez reigns over wear hooded tunics, they sport a red cross (some claim each is made from human blood), a metal helmet, and are required to carry and read a pamphlet or Templar book of rules equalling those of the twelfth century. This drug cartel claims to draw inspiration from the medieval Christian warriors who fought to protect Jerusalem and the Holy Grail.(http://blogs.aljazeera.net/americas/2011/07/22/knights-templar-mexicos-newest-drug-cartel). Gomez Martinez chief aide is similar to Iowa Senator Charles Grassley who twists the truth at every opportunity and haunts those who disagree with him until the dissidents are silenced with a bullet or beheading.

Members of a gang of kidnappers linked to the criminal group The Family

While the group in Mexico professes to devote itself to philanthropic works—including drug rehabilitation centers in Gomez’s home province of Michoacan—it is an offshoot of La Familia, described as quasi-religious since its current leaders refer to their assassinations and beheadings as “divine justice” (Gibbs, Steven. “They decapitate, torture, and extort. Then they pray, and donate to charity” at http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/8319924.stm) and is religiously devoted to the sermons and prayers of Pat Robertson, Ruben Diaz (a Pentecostal preacher/state senator of New York), and other Pentecostals aligned with Diaz) the second most powerful and lethally violent drug cartel in Mexico.  It does not permit any of its members to use drugs or consume alcohol. In other words, while the historic Knights of Templar are long gone, claimants to its legacy are continuing to honor, consciously or otherwise, its tangled legacy of blood, piety, and treasure.

Twentieth century USA history has a long record of Christian terrorism.  Most fundamentalist evangelical Christian communities and churches support these terrorist groups and cells.

The Army of God (as a terrorist group, read: http://articles.cnn.com/1998-02-02/us/9802_02_clinic.bombing.530pm_1_clinic-bombing-birmingham-bombing-eric-robert-rudolph?_s=PM:US and read: http://www.nytimes.com/1985/01/20/us/3-men-charged-in-bombings-of-seven-abortion-facilities.html)  began executing attacks against abortion clinics and abortion providers who believed in a woman’s right of choice across the United States and especially in anti-choice/anti-democracy states such as Kansas, Indiana and Nebraska.  The motive for anti-abortionist Scott Roeder (http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor/2009/06/01/dr_george_tillers_murder_was_an_act_of_domestic_terrorism.html)

murdering Wichita doctor George Tiller on May 31, 2009 was a belief that abortion is criminal and immoral, and that this belief went “hand in hand” with his religious beliefs.  A growing number of terrorist attacks were perpetrated by individuals and groups with ties to the Christian Identity (it claims that non-Caucasian people do not have souls; read: Quarles, Chester L. (2004). Christian Identity: The Aryan American Bloodline Religion. McFarland & Company. p. 68) and Christian Patriot (originally a group of USA evangelical Christian political commentators who wanted to end any control of the USA by non-white people and those who were not affirming evangelical Christians; conservative Radio Talk Show hosts like Jon Arthur and Alex Jones have taken the movement to the next level via radio broadcasting vowing to “Take America Back”! in support of what they believe are the rights of Sovereign Citizens who see nothing wrong in killing any police officer if stopped and questioned about reckless driving or carrying concealed weapons (read: http://arthuride.wordpress.com/2010/12/12/sovereigncitizen-movement-in-usa-home-grown-terrorists/); Matthew Lyons; Berlet, Chip (2000).

A group called Concerned Christians (code name: “Walk on Water”)  was deported from Israel on suspicion of planning to attack holy sites in Jerusalem at the end of 1999, believing that their deaths would “lead them to heaven” (read: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/251815.stm).  The Colorado-based radicals believe (they are currently in Greece) that one of

Al Aqsa Mosque (Jerusalem)

Islam’s holiest shrines in Jerusalem – Al-Aqsa mosque – must first be destroyed and an ancient Jewish temple restored in its place if Jesus is to return to Earth based on Matthew 10:34.  A second group, also known as Concerned Christians, has the goal of converting Mormons to Christianity and accepting Jesus as the Son of God and through him alone gain eternal life in a new world that will be created out of war and bloodshed, as the Concerned Christians believe is the goal and rule of their savior and god, basing everything on Matthew 10:34  (http://www.concernedchristians.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=1&Itemid=63) and have tactics similar to many evangelical Christian groups in India. Another evangelical Christian militia group known as Hutaree (the group’s web site says that it means “Christian warriors” but it is not in any known language; the group claims the name was given directly to them by a Jesus living in heaven and preparing for a Final Battle). 

Hutaree Nine

Hutaree is a Christian evangelical militia movement group adhering to the Christian Patriot movement, based in Adrian, Michigan.  It not only stockpiles improvised explosive devices, but teaches evangelical Christian adherents how to use them.  It gives out firearms to be used during crimes of violence “in the name of Jesus” a “god” who is seen as the Supreme Warrior.  The Hutaree group claims that it is preparing for what will be an apocalyptic battle with the forces of the Antichrist within their lifetime (http://www.toledoblade.com/Editorials/2010/03/31/In-the-name-of-God.html), whom they argue will supported and defended by local, state and federal police departments as devils support Satan in a war against Jesus  (http://www.toledoblade.com/local/2010/04/01/Hutaree-stockpiled-weapons-made-hit-list-prosecutor-says.html

Hutaree's logo includes the initials CCR - for Colonial Christian Republic

The Hutaree group argues that there will be a “Christian uprising” against all who are not Christian evangelicals.  The Hutaree, acting out the fantasy of an unreal medieval era where there were knights who rode off into glorious battle, proclaim that  the world will see a holy war far greater than the infamous crusades initially called by Pope Urban II at Claremont in 1095.  In the Hutaree mindset there is to be a “violent battle” that will lead to a “national rebellion” with all evangelical Christians rising up to cast out the African [sic] President [Obama] and restore the alleged white race (Caucasians) to primacy–and that war will be equal to Armageddon (http://www.toledoblade.com/local/2010/03/29/9-in-militia-sought-Christian-uprising.html).  The Hutaree will be in the forefront of the battle, being led by the founder and his family: David Brian Stone, Sr., 45, his wife,

Tina Mae Stone, 44, his son, Joshua Matthew Stone, 21, all of Clayton, and his other son, David Brian Stone, Jr., 19, of Adrian; Joshua John Clough, 28, of Blissfield; Michael David Meeks, 40, of Manchester, Mich.; Thomas William Piatek, 46, of Whiting, Ind.; Kristopher T. Sickles, 27, of Sandusky, and Jacob J. Ward, 33, of Huron, Ohio.  In seizing the Hutarees, prosecutors found “dizzying array of drugs, weapons and even a collection of speeches by Adolf Hitler were found at the homes of several of the alleged members of the Hutaree Christian militia”  (http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/2010/04/feds_weapons_crack_steroids_hitler_book_found_at_h.php).

All members of the evangelical Christian cult were required to go through arms training, using photographs of police and military as their targets. Since the year 2008, the Hutaree had been warning that a war was imminent, and each follower of this evangelical cult had to be prepared (http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/2010/03/our_country_is_in_peril_accused_hutaree_member_pos.php) as the incumbent president (George W. Bush) was too weak to defend the nation.   Later, Obama was especially a prized photo since the President of the USA is Black, and according to Hutaree and most Christian evangelicals is unfit to serve as President “since he carries the mark of Canaan (son of Ham) who was cursed by Noah” (Genesis 9:20-27 ).

On the Hutaree website, all police and military members who support the current U.S. system of local, state or federal government are described as members of the “Satanic brotherhood”, and are considered by the Hutaree to be “enemies” who must be executed (http://www.toledoblade.com/local/2010/03/30/9-in-Lenawee-County-based-militia-group-sought-Christian-uprising.html) in the manner of murders committed by the evangelical Christian group Sovereign Citizen (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/8593975.stm and http://www.toledoblade.com/local/2010/03/31/U-S-Attorney-said-militia-group-member-created-hit-list-of-area-officials.html;  cf. http://detnews.com/article/20100329/METRO/3290413/Hutaree-dialect—-rooted-in-religion-or-Pokemon the document, however, is not free; on the group’s psychology, read: http://www.connectmidmichigan.com/news/story.aspx?id=436976).  Their members all vote, and their leader, David B. Stone Sr., has endorsed libertarian GOP candidate Ron Paul for president of the USA, claiming he shares their apocalyptic war views (http://www.dailykos.com/story/2010/03/30/852564/-Hutaree-leader-is-Ron-Paul-fanatic).

Clayton Waagner

Muslims that the chaplain originally attacked verbally.  At the same time, the Army of God turned more violence-prone,  drawing intensified federal attention thanks to its praise (“great idea!”) for the anthrax scare at 550 clinics and abortion rights organizations in the fall of 2001, perpetrated by self-described antiabortion “terrorist” Clayton Waagner.   Waagner, who lived in a sumptuous environment while his family lived in squalor, signed his threats “Army of God.”

The Freemen Community (also known as the Montana Freemen) is a rabid religion where assassinations are considered sacred duties espousing a belief in the doctrine of individual sovereignty and rejecting the authority of the federal government of the United States (cp. http://www.nytimes.com/1998/11/08/us/federal-judge-sentences-3-members-of-freemen.html and http://www.rickross.com/reference/freemen/freemen5.html) although none of these believes have biblical substantiation nor background (like most evangelical Christians, the Freemen read only those parts of their Bible that support their own ideologies and hatreds; they ignore, for example: “πόδοτε ον τ Καίσαρος Καίσαρι κα τ το Θεο τ Θε” in Matthew 22:21 as well as Revelation 15:3, Isaiah 52:13 f). They conceived their own system of government in “Justus Township”, including their own versions of common-law court (closely resembling not only Old Testament by Islamic Sharia law) de jure, banking, and credit (a rebuttal to the Freemen’s argument is at http://freethought.mbdojo.com/foundingfathers.html).

It is this mindset that Al-Khattar called “the Christian militia that supported Timothy McVeigh (who blew up the federal building in Oklahoma City where he was considered a ‘model Christian’”; cf. http://aleksandreia.wordpress.com/2010/08/20/was-timothy-mcveigh-a-christian-terrorist/), as groups that “can be placed under the category of far-right-wing terrorism” that “has a religious (Christian) component”.  Christian terrorists are always anti-Democratic Party and pro-control over a woman’s body, education, and public policy (cf. http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2005-05-07-church-politics_x.htm and Melissa Deckman (June 2001), “Religion Makes the Difference, “Why Christian Right Candidates run for School Board,” Review of Religious Research 42, no. 4).   In 2005, Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) stated that investigators needed to analyze Christian militants in America because they too might try to “bring down the country” (http://www.rawstory.com/rawreplay/2011/06/sheila-jackson-lee-asks-about-christian-militants-during-anti-muslim-hearing/). Representative

Rep. Peter King (R-NY)

Peter King (R-NY), whose hatred and lack of objectivity has become an international disgrace for the USA (but applauded by Act! for America) was surprised to have Christian terrorists thrown into the Congressional spotlight, as he was focusing only on Muslim terrorists that his supporters (especially ACT! For America) claim is responsible for terrorism (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JBAmPxSI8bo; see also: http://kfyo.com/representative-sheila-jackson-lee-wants-an-analysis-on-christian-militants-video/).  

The question now is who is the next one to play god, especially in the USA? It will not only be a liar and one ignorant of the rights of people, but a self-appointed/self-anointed judge who will argue that certain people (of color, who are not Christians, who have various lifestyles (from selective celibacy to LGBT) and who are liberal in thought and action) will be the target.  The American who will become USA’s Breivik will come out of the intolerant Midwest and its appeal to the disjointed mentality of the young who turn to Heavy Metal and drugs, and who seek a single controlled-thought pattern for all people, an adulation of the wealthy, a rejection of the rights of labor, and the terrorizing of youth in schools and in places of worship, until suicides become epidemic in number and scope.   

Christian evangelist/Heavy Metal drummer Bradlee Dean
When told (or reminded) of the increase in suicides within the school district, Dean, as has been his custom, passed the blame. Bradlee Dean told a radio audience that “efforts to create a more tolerant climate at Anoka-Hennepin School District in the aftermath of six suicides, three by gay youth, were actually efforts by homosexuals to ‘go after the kids’.” (http://minnesotaindependent.com/71860/bradlee-dean-lgbt-advocates-aim-to-use-anti-gay-bullying-efforts-to-go-after-kids  cf. http://minnesota.publicradio.org/collections/special/columns/news_cut/archive/2011/07/bradlee_deans_revenge.shtmlwhere he claims that media attention on the suicides in Michele Bachmann’s

Social psychology tells us that those who protest too much, those who pontificate against the evil of others, have severe mental problems that can lead to degenerative and disabling migraine headaches and arch into mass murder sprees (Ben Yandell, “Those Who Protest too Much are Seen as Guilty,” in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin online at http://psp.sagepub.com/content/5/1/44.abstract; cp. http://positivepsychologynews.com/news/sherri-fisher/20070305128; ref. http://reid.socialpsychology.org/#overview).  Protests such as those by Dean and the Bachmanns generally indicates self-deception as well as self-signaling of their inward psychology (http://homepage.mac.com/ryantmckay/2011McKayPrelec&Prelec.pdf; on the psychology of assessing the truth, consider: http://www.experts.com/showArticle.aspx?Articleid=188 and Ideological Bias in Psychology, 45:3 (Autumn 1978) online at http://www.socres.org/vol45/issue453.htm and Cyman, Jeremy (2009). “Food Inc.” The Psychological Weapons of Protest,” online at http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/reel-therapy/200907/food-inc-the-psychological-weapons-protest; political activists use intolerance and protest to push their agenda, as will Bradlee Dean; see: “The Psychology of Terrorism” bringing together religious and political activism, online at http://www.guidetopsychology.com/terrorism.htm; cp.

The military Jesus
The one threat USA citizens refuse to address is the evangelical Christian brainwashing of the USA military, especially at the US Air Force Academy, where evangelical chaplains recruit and indoctrinate young service personnel in Christian hate.  The extent of this mind control included having special rifle scopes imprinted with messages from the Bible: known as Jesus Codes (http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/us-military-weapons-inscribed-secret-jesus-bible-codes/story?id=9575794).  One of the citations on the gun sights, 2COR4:6, is an apparent reference to Second Corinthians 4:6 of the New Testament, which reads: “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”  This is especially acceptable to the evangelical Christian control of the US Air Force Academy in Colorado where intimidation and coercion by evangelical Christian chaplains requires cadets to affirm an evangelical Christian belief or face ostracism and physical harm (http://ripley8.newsvine.com/_news/2010/09/30/5210239-us-air-force-academy-controlled-by-christian-conservative-evangelical-fanatics and ) with indoctrination from nearby Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs).  This previously clandestine activity is prohibited by the 1997 Military Code of

Air Force cadet chapel has become focal point of evangelical indoctrination and forced conversions

Ethics that reads, in part:

“Military professionals must remember that religious choice is a matter of individual conscience. Professionals, and especially commanders, must not take it upon themselves to change or coercively influence the religious views of subordinates.” 

One military veteran who had served in Vietnam, and whose son had been admitted to the US Air Force Academy in Colorado, wrote:   “The orientation began with a one-hour “warrior” rant to appointees and parents by the commandant of cadets, Brig. Gen. Johnny Weida. The fact that the word warrior had replaced leadership was a signal of what was to follow. I later learned that cadets, to determine when a new record was established, had created a game in which warrior was counted in each speech Weida gave.  … my son’s orientation became an opportunity for the academy to aggressively proselytize this next crop of cadets. Maj. Warren Watties led a group of 10 young, exclusively evangelical chaplains who stood shoulder to shoulder. He proudly stated that half of the cadets attended Bible studies on Monday nights in the dormitories and he hoped to increase this number from those in his audience who were about to join their ranks. This “invitation” was followed with hallelujahs and amens by the evangelical clergy. I later learned from Air Force Academy chaplain MeLinda Morton, a Lutheran who was forced to observe from the choir loft, that no priest, rabbi or mainline Protestant had been permitted to participate.” (http://salonesoterica.wordpress.com/2007/11/08/the-cancer-from-within-the-evangelical-christian-takeover-of-the-military/ and http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=103×320979)  The role of James Dobson’s Focus on the Family, and homosexual repented evangelist Ted Haggard’s remains enormous and controls the US Air Force academy, so that in 2011 there is no less than one chaplain for every 100 cadets–each paid with tax dollars of the USA citizen: Christian, Jew, Muslim, Buddhist, agnostic, and so forth (http://www.jewsonfirst.org/airacademy.html).

Jesus guns made in the USA

There are no codes from the Old Testament imprinted on US military weapons, nor does the company plan any.  It is the official policy of the gun producers for the USA military to produce only Jesus guns. 

There are no other citations from the world’s religions, as the company boasts that it is a Christian concern and advocates Christianity for all people by any means.  It was the invention “and last wish” of its CEO before he died in 2003.
On August 2, 2011, The Washington Post reported that the USA military suspended its “Jesus Loves Nukes” course.  The Post reported that the course: “referenced religious figures including Abraham, John the Baptist and Saint Augustine” as being in favor of warfare. The presentation said that there are “many examples of believers engaged in wars in the Old Testament” and “no pacifistic sentiment in mainstream Jewish history.”  That is hard to equate and justify with the holocaust under Hitler (http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/checkpoint-washington/post/air-force-suspends-ethics-course-that-used-bible-passages-to-train-missile-launch-officers/2011/08/02/gIQAv6V2pI_blog.html).  The Post further reported:  “David Smith, a spokesman for the Air Force’s Air Education and Training Command, said that the program had initially been designed to “help folks understand why we’re doing what we’re doing. In the missile launch industry, it takes a certain mindset to be able to walk in the door and say, yes, I can do that” (http://www.military.com/news/article/af-pulls-jesus-loves-nukes-training-.html).  This was a distinct victory for the organization Military Religious Freedom Foundation that works to continue and ensure the separation of state and church (http://www.militaryreligiousfreedom.org/2011/07/72911-monumental-victory-mrff-again-compels-concrete-corrective-action-by-the-u-s-department-of-defense/).
