In 1938 a crazed Jewish young man, Peter Grynspan, distraught over his parent's deportation to a Polish ghetto, walked into a Nazi office and killed a German military official. This was the incident the Nazis seized upon to rally mass violence against the Jews which culminated in the ugly Krystallnacht in which thousands of Jewish owned businesses had their glass shattered and shops destroyed. Then the already victimized storeowners and other Jews were forced to pay reparations for the cleanup. They were also forced to wear ugly yellow stars.
There was an ominous parallel here in the USA yesterday. A crazed out of work man, with a media reported hatred of liberals and their churches allegedly walked into a Knoxville, Tennessee Unitarian Universalist Church and opened fire. At least seven were wounded. Two have so far died. Because of a note left in the car, the matter is being investigated as a "hate crime."
What is ignored in the headline coverage are the statements of witnesses contained in the article: He was angry at all religion. He expressed anger two years ago at a neighbor who told him she graduated from Bible School. He said his parents had forced him to go to church as a child. His hatred of religion was certainly not confined to "liberal" ones.
The emphasis in the mainstream media coverage seems to be "hate crimes" against "liberal churches" -- not Christianity and the Bible in general.
I am fearful of the media spin being put upon this one. I have collected many New Age books that say when people learn what the churches are all about, they will burn them down. Edgar Cayce (A.R.E.) activist Gina Cerminara wrote one such book, Insights for the Age of Aquarius.
I rather suspect the Alliance of Civilizations will seize upon this as part of their implementation agenda. They have already written at length that a greater threat than terrorism to the world was 'religious extremism' in the USA. They spelled out with great exactitude that this was more dangerous than terrorism because it was the "extremism" that would breed terrorism.
Given the recent publicity characterizing Fellowship Foundation as Christian extremism and given that we know that at the very highest levels it was a New Age stalking horse with interlocking directorates with the highest leadership of powerful New Age groups such as Institute for Noetic Sciences and World Business Academy, I suspect that great hay will be made of this with little or no attention paid to the assailant's total hatred of all religion.
The same tactic was tried by New Age leadership after Jim Jones and his People's Temple blew up in 1977. The New Agers promptly blamed the entire organization and final fatal episode on "Christian fundamentalism." I am happy to have played some role, albeit perhaps small, in returning Jim Jones to the New Age community of which he was always such a stalwart part.
It would be very nice as the charges of "Christian extremism" advance to likewise hand them back Fellowship Foundation and the Prayer Breakfast Network. Using psychological terms, what appears to be happening is called "projection." The New Agers are busy projecting their own hateful agenda on to us, successfully using the religious subversion networks they created to marginalize and silence those of us sound the alarms! Atheist websites continue to mischaracterize Jim Jones as "Christian" seeking "righteousness." I am certain by now they know he was not, but the lie is convenient for those seeking to put down monotheism in general and Christianity in particular.
We need to keep a close and wary eye on this one.
