Editor’s note, June 8: Our latest story, “Republican National Committee Hires Tea Party Southern Baptist To Lobby For Evangelical Vote,” has a strong tie to the story you’re about to read below.
Editor’s note, June 7 — Read part two: “Rand Paul Tied To Evangelical Demanding War Against ‘Pagan’ Imposed ‘Homosexual Marriage’“
The man tasked by top Republicans — like Mike Huckabee and Rand Paul – when vying for the GOP presidential nomination to endear them with America’s Evangelicals, has just published an op-ed demanding his followers “Wage war to restore a Christian America.” This is the third op-ed David Lane — whose work is primarily funded by the American Family Association — has written for World Net Daily. WND is home to other hate group members, like Bradlee Dean, and to the likes of Rick Santorum.
“Where are the champions of Christ to save the nation from the pagan onslaught imposing homosexual marriage, homosexual scouts, 60 million babies done to death by abortion and red ink as far as the eye can see on America?,” Lane, head of AFA’s American Renewal Project asks. “Who will wage war for the Soul of America and trust the living God to deliver the pagan gods into our hands and restore America to her Judeo-Christian heritage and re-establish a Christian culture?”
Lane, who has worked with Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, Haley Barbour, and Rand Paul (come back for more of that tomorrow) writes in no uncertain terms that he wants to make this “crystal clear”:
Those who embrace homosexual marriage and homosexual Scouting – or homosexuality in general – know little and practice nothing of Christianity. Notwithstanding Sen. Rob Portman – or the 1,400 Boy Scout delegates who buckled – Christian love is regulated not by impulse, but by principle.
Lane’s op-ed also attacks “the pagan media elite and pagan National Education Association,” writing:
Christians must be retrained to war for the Soul of America and quit believing the fabricated whopper of the “Separation of Church and State,” the lie repeated ad nauseum by the left and liberals to keep Christian America – the moral majority – from imposing moral government on pagan public schools, pagan higher learning and pagan media.
Lane concludes with this chilling promise:
You ask, “What is our goal?” To wage war to restore America to our Judeo-Christian heritage with all of our might and strength that God will give us. You ask, “What is our aim?” One word only: victory, in spite of all intimidation and terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, America will ultimately collapse.
The hate being spewed is deafening.
What would Jesus do?
