On Tuesday we published a report new detailing that before the Obama administration tied the Benghazi attack to an anti-Muslim video about the prophet Mohammed, they tried to tie it to a different video they considered anti-Muslim. What they considered anti-Muslim was just a reading of scripture.
My good friend Tami Jackson knows and respects the Preacher who made the video. He happens to be her preacher’s preacher. Tami wrote about Pastor Jon in the post below which appears on Barbwire.
Tami argues that the initial attempt to brand Pastor Jon’s video as causing the Benghazi attack is part of this administration’s hostility towards those of Christian and Jewish faith, a stance that I happen to agree with:
Obama and his administration, from the first day of the first term, have been at odds with the biblical Christian worldview, mocking and decreeing ungodly legislation at will.
I submit that there has been a steady and calculated effort to demonize believers, Evangelical Christians, and to normalize Muslims. Add to that the President’s open hostility to Israel, in defiance of scripture’s admonition in Genesis:
And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. Genesis 12:3
Consider that Obama, in an OFFICIAL capacity congratulated ISNA (Islamic Society of North America), an organization known to be an ally of the Muslim Brotherhood and fellow “mujahideen” in the “Grand Jihad.”
As I wrote in 2013:
The Muslim Brotherhood (also known as Ikhwan), founded in 1928 by Islamist Hassan al-Banna for the purpose of achieving a global, Islamic caliphate, or rule by Islam and sharia law, has listed 29 ally organizations — and ISNA tops the list!
Obama’s record of championing the murder of innocent babies, congratulating the evil entity Planned Parenthood and its CEO Cecile Richards, advancing sexual perversity and homosexual marriage, and being a chief apologist for the “Prophet” Mohammed and his false religion, adds up to a fierce attack on America’s Judeo-Christian heritage.
A couple years ago I read a heinous study published by West Point’s Combating Terrorism Center titled “Challengers from the Sidelines: Understanding America’s Violent Far-Right” by Dr. Arie Perliger. The study was breathtaking in its assumptions and thesis: Perliger builds a case that the true danger in America, the real terrorists, are pro-life, Evangelical Christians.
As I read page after page my disbelief mounted — how could such a work of rubbish come out of a venerable institution such as West Point? Who appointed Perliger? What was his background?
Some of what I wrote in my article, “Expert at West Point Think Tank Warns of the ‘Violent Far-Right’ “:
There is something tremendously unsettling about seeing the words “America’s Violent Far-Right” in the title.
In Challengers, Perliger attempts to sideline West Point’s time-honored motto: Duty, Honor, Country.
Dr. Perliger’s bio boasts, “…In the past decade Dr. Perliger has studied extensively issues related to Terrorism and Political Violence, Politics of Security, Politics of the Far Right in Israel, Europe,” and yet he seems afflicted with terrorist event amnesia.
Was it not fundamental Islamists who flew planes into the Twin Towers? Was it not Islamist Jihadis who bombed the USS Cole? Was not the number 1 terrorist in the world Osama bin Laden, the hero of Al Qaeda…one of the most evil, Islamist terror organizations in the world?
Farther in the study, on page 17, he posits:
The far right represents a more extreme version of conservatism, as its political vision is usually justified by the aspiration to restore or preserve values and practices that are part of the idealized historical heritage of the nation or ethnic community.
Dr. Perliger paints those who wish to “restore or preserve values and practices” of our national heritage (could he possibly mean The Constitution?) as extreme and violent. But it gets better. Next the good doctor gets into the real red meat – those “pro-life extremists”!
During 1979, for example, two well known speakers of the evangelical movement at that time, Dr. C. Everett Koop and Francis Schaeffer, consistently claimed during a speaking tour that Roe v. Wade“symbolize[d] the triumph of evil over good.”
Can he seriously be judging Dr. C. Everett Koop and Dr. Francis Schaeffer to be “far-right” extremists? Dr. Koop was one of our nation’s most highly regarded pro-life and pioneering surgeons, who accrued medical fame performing successful separation of conjoined twins on several occasions. Dr. Francis Schaeffer was one of America’s most highly esteemed Christian thinkers whose teaching of Apologetics will long endure. Both men were gracious and intelligent; both wholeheartedly pro-life.
Mull that over for a bit. An expert embedded in West Point wrote a 147 page study, painting Bible-believing Christians as a threat to the United States and the study was then foisted on the cadets to learn. I imagine it was also required reading for some in DoD.
(…)Here it gets chilling and personal. Jon Courson, pastor of Applegate Christian Fellowship, is a wonderful, Evangelical, expository preacher who just happens to be the pastor of MY pastor, Brett Meador, of Athey Creek Christian Fellowship. And Pastor Jon is also married to Brett’s sister, Tammy.
