Evangelical Leaders Protest Jewish Anti-Christianity
In a recent email alert, I advised that next time you hear or read of anti-Christian litigation, especially take note of those who are behind it. Almost invariably, they will be Jewish. Recently, a lawsuit was filed against the Air Force Academy for allegedly allowing evangelical Christians too much influence over cadets. The suit was filed by Mikey Weinstein, a Jew.
Over the past 40 years, Jews or Jewish "civil liberties" organizations have initiated many dozens of such actions. Yet Christians, protective of the Jewish people, have habitually averted their eyes, preferring to describe such anti Christianity as the work of "liberals" or "secular humanists." Things may be changing.
Rift in Christian-Jewish Relations
According to the Jewish newspaper, Forward (Jan. 6, 2006, page 4), Ted Haggard, president of the National Association of Evangelicals, accused Weinstein of "endangering Jewish-Christian relations" by attempting to "limit freedom." Haggard says "... you are working to muzzle freedom of expression under the guise of separation of church and state." The author of the Forward article, E. J. Kessler, says there now exists "growing tension between leaders of the Christian right and Jewish activists, as Jews have pressed the evangelicals over matters pertaining to church-state separation. Haggard has added his voice to a small but growing chorus of evangelicals who suggest that the Jewish community’s tactics in the church-state debate could weaken Christian conservative support for pro-Israel causes."
The Forward article continues: "After Anti-Defamation League’s national director Abraham Foxman gave a speech last November warning of a broad-based conservative campaign to ‘Christianize America,' a top official of one of the leading Christian groups, Focus on the Family, told the Forward that evangelical groups might temper their strong support of Israel in light of Foxman’s sallies. ‘If you keep bullying your friends, pretty soon you won’t have any,’ said Tom Minnery, Focus on the Family’s vice president of government and public policy."
On radio, Rev. Donald Wildmon, leader of the American Family Association, echoed Focus on the Family. "[T]he more [Foxman] says that ‘You people are destroying the country,’ you know, some people are going to begin to get fed up with this and say, ‘Well, all right then. If that’s the way you feel, then we just won’t support Israel any more.’" (Forward article)
Land of Blessing for Jews
America is supposed to be a land of tolerance and fair play. Yet the ADL mentality asserts that, having suffered so bitterly at the hands of Christians for the last two millennia, it’s now payback time. Such evil Jewish leaders have the right to mock, weaken and even attack Christian symbols and values. Christians, they feel, should take it on the chin, or even in the solar plexus, without being so "anti-Semitic" as to identify the race or religion of their attackers.
For at least the last century, Christians have given evil Jewish leaders what they wanted: freedom from criticism. Meanwhile, such Jews have permeated the courts, government, finance and the media.
Yet, despite unprecedented favor, evil Jewish leadership only bites the hand that protects it.
America: Temple of Freedom
Emerging 300 years ago from the strife and persecutions of Europe, the United States of America gleams as a splendid temple of freedom to the nations. It is still a sanctuary of hope that all may visit and be ennobled by. Yet evil Jewish "civil liberties" organizations have set themselves up within this temple as not only its moneychangers, but also lawgivers. Instead of God’s law and the Constitution, they substitute twisted definitions of those critical values that guide society.
For example, under the Hate Crimes Statistics Act of 1990 Congress gave ADL authority to preside over hate crimes definitions, education, and statistics-gathering for state governments and local police. ADL instructs government officials that "hate" equals bias against federally protected groups, especially homosexuals. "Tolerance" equals acceptance of homosexuality as normal. Thus, Bible-believing Christians and social conservatives become haters in the eyes of the law. (Already, on Oct. 10, 2004, eleven Christians were arrested as "hate criminals" by Philadelphia district attorney and ADL national board member Lynne Abraham. Her proposed penalty for the Christians - 47 years in prison and $80,000 fines each.)
Similarly, ADL/B’nai B’rith constitutes the new "Department of Anti-Semitism" within the U.S. State Department. It asserts that anti-Semitism is agreement with the New Testament that Jewish leaders had Christ crucified. Bible-believing Christians (most of whom are passionate supporters of Israel) are thus made into anti-Semites. (In Canada today, the penalty for conviction of the "hate crime" of anti-Semitism, under B’nai B’rith’s federal hate law, is up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.)
Hollywood: Fountain of Evil
Such perversion of America’s Christian values has also spewed out of Jewish-controlled Hollywood. The recent Golden Globe awards gave top honors to Brokeback Mountain, Capote, and Transamerica, all promoting sexual perversion as normal. Such continues the Jewish media’s sordid record from its inception: encouraging immodesty and pornography, fornication and adultery, profanity, tobacco, alcohol and drug use, gratuitous violence, teen rebellion, the theory of evolution, the occult, and all forms of liberalism and secular humanism.
How Jesus Reacted
Two thousand years ago, Jesus found evil Jewish leaders, the Pharisees, ensconced within God’s temple in Jerusalem. There, they bought and sold, transforming God’s house of prayer into an ancient strip mall. Christ went on rampage. He upended their tables, sending coins clattering and doves flying. He whipped the astonished moneychangers into panicked exodus. In the weeks that followed, He publicly excoriated the Pharisees, the fathers of modern Judaism, in the most specific, vitriolic, and extensive manner. Now, as ADL threatens even greater opposition to Christian symbols and witness in America and ADL/B’nai B’rith hate laws indict Christians worldwide, Christians and their leaders, may have to react differently in order to survive. Contrary to all the church and the Jews have taught them and against all their instincts, even perhaps against the law of the land, they may have to do the unthinkable: … Respond like Jesus.
