Earlier I posted about a creepy government program involving martial law, terrorism, and the use of clergy to manipulate a worried populace. I wondered what would happen to those of us who do not go to a church and do not regard the clergy as any sort of an authority. Now I see that someone else has also speculated about such matters. Over at OpedNews.com, Joe Park has more details that frankly scare the shit out of me.
A KSLA-TV news report from Louisiana has confirmed the story that Clergy Response Teams are being trained by the federal government to “quell dissent” and pacify citizens to obey the government in the event of a declaration of martial law.
The report confirms the existence of a nationwide Homeland Security program which is training pastors and other religious representatives to teach their congregations to “obey the government” in preparation for a declaration of martial law.
This is really a very serious matter.
A whistleblower who attended one of the training sessions reports that the feds were recruiting religious leaders to help implement government Homeland Security directives in anticipation of a terrorist attack or a nationally declared emergency.
The first directive was for pastors to preach to their congregations Romans 13, the often taken out of context bible passage that was used by Hitler to hoodwink Christians into supporting him, in order to teach them to “obey the government” when martial law is declared.
It was stressed that the pastors needed to preach subservience to the authorities ahead of time in preparation for the round-ups and to make it clear to the congregation that “this is for their own good.”
I’ve been thinking about this for the last couple of days. I really am having trouble wrapping this around my brain. What the hell is wrong with these people? Have they never taken a civics course during high school? There is so much that is patently and unconstitutionally wrong with this sort of activity. This is subversion and treason at the very least. Why do moderate Christians not challenge these people? Unbelievers like myself are ignored for the most part when we point out these statements.
Don’t these pastors realize that they are subverting the laws of the land and perhaps aiding and abetting treason? And what will they do with those of us that they round up? Put us in cattle cars on the way to a death camp? Have these idiots never studied recent history?
Pastors were told that they would be backed up by law enforcement in controlling uncooperative individuals and that they would even lead SWAT teams in attempting to quell resistance.
Could they really handle the 24 million American citizens who do not belong to any religion? And what would be the cost of dissent? Our lives?
So there you have it – Homeland Security is working with local police departments and religious leaders to prepare for a declaration of martial law and in particular to develop techniques they will employ during the crisis to “quell dissent.”
Well certain groups, like Christian Embassy, who are associated with dominionist leaning churches, such as the Assemblies of God, have close ties with the military. And these groups probably also have close links with law enforcement agencies as well. And mercenary contractors such as Blackwater are also owned, ran, and staffed by fundamentalist Christians.
So that possibly pits these groups, as well as sympathetic fundamentalist citizens, against those of us who don’t subscribe to these religious viewpoints. And in addition, we have preachers such as Joseph Fuiten, an AOG pastor who lately has stated that those who don’t think as himself should not be considered citizens. It seems that the more these guys reveal their agenda, the more frightening their plans appear.
I will continue this in further posts, once I’ve researched more of the the links.
