EVANGELICAL LEADERS PROTEST JEWISH ANTI-CHRISTIANITY
By Rev. Ted Pike
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
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
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
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.
