Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. (Matthew 5:11)
Our Lord told us persecution will come. We have been blessed in this nation to have had very little persecution, but things are changing. The enemy is growing i strength and boldness. Christianity is under attack by the forces of evil.
I have spoken to you about the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). This group has become the go to place for a list of hate groups. I want to take a closer look at this because it seems that every day I receive something in my email and news feeds about the SPLC, and how groups have been wrongly placed on their hate group list.
There are genuine hate groups on the SPLC’s list, but they are putting Christian organizations on it for standing where they have always stood. We were added to the list two years ago. At first there was not much fallout because of the, but things are changing rapidly.
Yesterday I gave you a list of the top 20 organization which influence our culture. The American Family Association, which we were associated with through their American Family Ratio network. This Christian group was number 4 on the list. Liberty Counsel was also on the list.
Many of those on the SPLC hate group lists are those who have the courage to stand up against the ungodly things that are becoming acceptable in our nation. The SPLC considers supporting tradition marriage as hateful. If you believe that killing people in the name of Allah is evil, you are a hate monger. This is how we got on their list.
There were two racist groups in Charlottesville. There was the white supremest group. There were also groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa, which is a strange group. Antifa is the true neo-Nazi group of our day. They claim to be against Fascism while using fascist tactics to shut down those they disagree with. Nazism was fascist with the brown shirt groups who used the same tactics as Antifa. When you have these types of groups together, there will be violence. I not only denounce white supremacy, I denounce all colors of supremacy. God only made one race, and that is the human race. He never intended for any color group to be inferior or superior.
What has happened In Charlottesville, VA exposed how divided we are as a nation.
Both the white supremest groups and the black supremest groups are on the SPLC hate group list. I believe that it is correct to put those groups on the list, but they are completely wrong to lump groups like Fortress of Faith, the American Family Association, Liberty Counsel, etc. on the list simply because they stand for traditional values and against the evils of Islam on their list.
Here are some things that have happened in the past week
—In the aftermath of the Charlottesville, VA, tragedy, the SPLC’s “fake hate” lies against Liberty Counsel have spread far and wide through potentially thousands of news outlets, not the least of which is CNN.
—This dangerous and defamatory attack puts Liberty Counsel alongside the most radical elements of society (including the person who drove the car into the crowd in Charlottesville) in a blatant attempt to link Liberty Counsel to those violent, extremist radicals!
—Apple CEO Tim Cook announced that Apple is donating $1 million to the SPLC and will add a direct donation portal to the SPLC through iTunes that could funnel millions more to the dangerous group.
So, Apple is going to funnel large sums of money to the SPLC, which hates anyone who stands for traditional values, and puts them on a hate group list. If what the SPLC is doing is not hate, I don’t know what hate is.
Not only is the SPLC getting fan mail from across the country for exposing the “hate groups,” but other groups are coming on board. We shared how FaceBook taking those on the SPLC list off FaceBook, it happened to us. Google is now taking them out.
Amazon is also part of the SPLC-led attack on pro-family groups, including Liberty Counsel. Through its “Amazon Smile” program, Amazon lets users direct a portion of their purchases to a vast selection of hundreds of thousands of charities. But Amazon Smile specifically BANS LIBERTY COUNSEL ALONG WITH OTHER PRO-FAMILY GROUPS from this program which has directed more than $60 million to non profit organizations.
Yesterday I said that we would have Robert Spenser from Jihad Watch on today’s broadcast, but due to scheduling issues, he will be with us tomorrow. He will be sharing his story with PayPal. Most, if not all, of his donations were coming through PayPal. PayPal ended their relationship with him, and in doing so, cut off all of hose who support his ministry.
Just about everywhere we turn, Christianity is being attacked. Twenty years ago I could not have imagined how America could fall. I never understood why America is not found in Bible prophecy. Does that mean that America will not be around during the Tribulation period? Will America become such a broken nation that it will no longer be significant? Today, with what is happening in our nation, I am very concerned that one fo these two things will happen.
The leftist groups like SPLC are trying to shut up all opposition to their leftist world view. They understand that if they cut off our funding, they will get rid of us. Without our funding we can’t pay for air time to get the message out and they will have shut us down.
Isn’t it amazing that Bill O’Reilly, the number one broadcaster on cable news, was shut down. How did they do it? They went after the funding. They intimidated those who advertised on Fox News. They threatened a boycott of the advertisers if they did not get rid of O’Reilly. Leftist groups know that they have the power to shut up the opposition if they go after the funding.
Because of what is happening, we need your help more than ever if we want to keep this microphone on the air. You can support our ministry by calling 1-900-616-0082, or by using the donation form in the sidebar on this website.
