Pastoral Letter to a Porn Addict

“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus”
(Romans 8:1)

received an email the other day from a man who read my book The Petros Prophecy outlining the Bible’s case against homosexuality and its role in end-times prophecy. He thanked me for writing it and confessed that he struggles with homosexual lust and porn addiction. He asked for advice on how to cope with his situation, and I connected him with First Stone Ministries which ministers to people dealing with homosexuality and other sexual brokenness. He replied with a heart-wrenching description of his emotional torment and a second request for my advice. I then answered from my own life experience as a 16-year alcoholic and drug addict healed miraculously in prayer in 1986, and my subsequent work ministering to people with homosexuality and addiction issues through my work as a pastor, missionary and Christian lawyer.  

The following is an expanded version of my reply, which I think may be helpful to others struggling with addictions of various kinds. People who have never experienced addiction should be reminded here that addictive conduct is not truly voluntary in the normal sense of the word because the addict’s will power is no longer capable of defeating (except incidentally under optimal conditions) the temptation to which he has become enslaved and which grows in power with each successive failure.

The key to being able to live with yourself as a person who struggles with habitual sin is God’s grace and mercy. We can’t ever be good enough behaviorally or legalistically to deserve His love, but thankfully He loves us anyway like a parent loves a toddler. 

Justification – our ticket to heaven — is ours by faith alone in Christ alone, never by works of any kind “lest men would boast” (Ephesians 2:9), But Sanctification (becoming Christlike) takes work and lots of it. It is always and for everyone about progress not perfection, one day at a time, and about recognizing that self-condemnation is siding with the Accuser of the Brethren against our own Advocate in the spiritual/mental/emotional courtroom of our heart.  

Importantly, the Judge of All Things is always going to acquit whomever the Advocate represents (it’s a system totally rigged in our favor!), so the only thing accomplished by self-condemnation is voluntarily trading peace for misery in our sojourn through life. Correcting that upside-down state of mind allows us to honor the command to “count it all joy” when we face our life’s challenges, despite our deficiencies (James 1:2).

My advice is to change your primary focus away from preventing relapses through will power (which is virtually impossible to sustain as a long-term strategy). Instead work actively to cleanse and tend the open wounds that cause the pain which drives you to seek relief through ritual sin, by applying the balm of God’s grace and mercy which, over time, will heal them. Wounds heal slowly and incrementally, although in some rare situations Christ brings instant healing for His own reasons. Most people face the longer, sometimes much longer natural healing process, also for His own reasons. 

Per Romans 8, abide in the spirit even as you inhabit the flesh that you can’t fully control, and keep the two separate in the sense that you never forget that the flesh is just a temporary vessel destined for death, while the real YOU is already in timeless Heaven, a part of the “cloud of witnesses” watching your human self alternately swimming and treading water in Creation’s river of time. Or, to use Paul’s metaphor, “running the race that is set before us” … “throwing off every encumbrance and the sin that so easily entangles us” (Hebrews 12:1). 

Years ago on an early morning prayer walk before serving as a guest preacher in a Southern California church, the Lord taught me a short string of words and phrases that explain very simply the purpose of life:

The purpose of life is to be conformed to the character of Jesus Christ,
through a life-long series of challenges uniquely designed
for each person by God Himself.     

You WILL face a never-ending series of challenges in life. God designed them carefully and specifically for you. It’s your mission to help Him shape you to be Christlike in the way you respond to them. The same is true for every human being ever born. So don’t get caught up in self pity, or self-condemnation, or self-absorption, or self-aggrandizement, or self-justification or self-righteousness, or any other self-centeredness. Die to self, surrender to His plan, and enjoy the sanctification process as He intended you to do.  

And also remember that “freedom in Christ” includes freedom from the expectations of men. Let the Holy Spirit be your guide in all things, not the opinions of other people, especially those who have never experienced addiction.  

But at the same time NEVER give up! Never surrender to despair. Never self-identify with the sin you struggle with (“gayness” is a condition, not a type of person). And Never, Ever compound your sin by declaring it not to be sin.  

Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely, and may your entire spirit, soul, and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The One who calls you is faithful, and He [not you] will do it [through your glorification by HIM at the appointed time] (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24).

An Open Letter to Gab’s Andrew Torba re ‘Christian Nationalism’

Dear Brother Andrew. I am a Hebraic-oriented Evangelical Christian attorney, pastor and historian who has devoted my entire adult life in Christ to Christian social, cultural and political activism. I bought your book “Christian Nationalism” to support the mission of Gab Social, and want to offer you some constructive criticism. 

At the outset, I want to commend you for your courage and vision in taking on the powers and principalities of the present age by working to break the chains of censorship and suppression of free speech, particularly of the biblically-informed views that so powerfully contradict the secular humanist dogma of our Marxist would-be masters. They are the true enemies of “Judeo-Christian” civilization, and of course I choose that phrase intentionally to respectfully contradict your well-intentioned but misguided representation of its meaning and purpose relative to our national identity and heritage. 

I will also add that I am both a member of Gab and a vehement defender of your right to address the distinctions between Judaism and Christianity. I do not consider you an anti-Semite, and in fact believe that the secularized ethnic Jews working to destroy your work are actually far more anti-Semitic than they claim you are in that they deny and/or defy the Torah, whereas you worship and revere its Author. 

What defines a “Semite” (Shemite) if not Yahweh-worship? It certainly can’t be an ethnic connection to Shem (or Abraham or even Jacob) which virtually all humanity now shares because of genetic diffusion over millennia. No, it must be the practice of true Judaism, whose terms are defined by the Torah and Tanach (Old Testament Scripture), NOT the Talmud (commentaries on the Scripture by various Hebrew scholars with widely divergent views, values and validity). 

Indeed, Judaism itself is as factional as Christianity but on a smaller scale, only because it’s so much smaller in numbers. Jews are not just doctrinally divided, but notoriously so! As the famous old joke goes “Ask two Jews, get three opinions.” Thus, to cite the view of any Talmudic “sage” as representative of all Jews or Judaism itself (as you did on page 56) is as intellectually dishonest as an anti-Christian Jew or Secular Humanist cherry-picking from the collective works of Christian scholars to define all Christianity.  

You begin Chapter 4 “This is Not a ‘Judeo-Christian’ Movement” asserting that “Christianity and Judaism are totally distinct, incompatible, and irreconcilable religions.” In one essential sense that is true because, as you emphasize, Judaism denies that Jesus Christ is the Messiah. BUT, unlike all the other people groups of the world that also deny Christ (including all the secular factions in our diverse MAGA and populist/conservative movements whom you rightfully seem very comfortable collaborating with), true Torah-faithful Jews believe in A Messiah who will do all the things that Christians anticipate Jesus Christ will do on His second coming.

Most Jews simply “missed the bus” on Jesus/Yeshua during His first advent (by God’s own plan), but remain standing in line for the next one, which Romans 11 tells us they WILL catch, when (as God adds in Zechariah 12:10) “I will pour out on the house of David and on the people of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and prayer, and they will look on Me, the One they have pierced [and] mourn for Him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for Him as one grieves for a firstborn son.” 

You and I presumably share all or most of that would be considered the most fundamental tenets of the Christian faith, and many non-essential doctrines too. But we differ strongly on “supersessionism” (replacement theology) which you defend as the justification for your personal theology. Importantly, what you have laid out in “Christian Nationalism” is your personal theology, which does not represent Christianity as a whole, but only one slate of views among the constellation of denominations. That’s not a problem insofar as you admit it, and don’t attempt to impose your interpretations on non-essentials as dogma on the rest of Christendom.

The flaw in your analysis of supersessionism (page 57) is the appeal to tradition (one of the classic fallacies of formal logic)  Whenever we justify ourselves by church tradition instead of the Bible itself, we depart from sound Holy Spirit guidance to tenuous worldly humanism – the common error behind Roman Catholicism’s self-authorizing “Magisterium” theory and Talmudic Judaism’s self-authorizing “Revered Sages” club. Correcting that error in Christendom was the implicit premise of the Reformation, but unfortunately, the reformers failed to reform numerous extra-biblical human-created doctrines in Protestantism, including the RCC’s dramatic changes to the God’s holiday calendar, the presumed right of the church to enforce dogma through murder (i.e. Calvin’s execution of Michael Servetus), and a severe Greco-Roman cultural bias in interpreting Scripture that differs markedly from the Hebraic cultural perspective of the Apostles and the Prophets.

Many of those human-created doctrines were quickly jettisoned as Protestantism splintered into numerous factions, such as Presbyterianism that made the world-changing quantum shift from the top-down ecclesiastical power-pyramid exemplified by the papacy (and Anglicanism) to bottom-up self governance authorized by the “priesthood of all believers” and organized like the Jerusalem Council of Acts 15. THAT is the deepest foundation-stone of America and of the modern movement for constitutionalism (foreshadowed by the Magna Carta in 1215, also heavily influenced by Jews). 

The process of getting from Scottish Presbyterianism to the Pilgrim Separatism of the Plymouth Colony was heavily influenced by Christian-Jewish cross-pollination. Indeed, I know from my studies of this, that there would never have been a US Constitution or the populist overthrow of the western monarchies if not for the 16th and 17th Century Hebraic Movement in Holland and Great Britain. And that is why America is and has always been “Judeo-Christian.” It has nothing to do with how many Jews were active in the physical founding of America, or how Christian-centric the first state constitutions were, it is simply an honest acknowledgment of the Jews’ role in nudging Christians back to their First Century heritage that made America possible: a shared intellectual property right, if you will, like co-authors of a book or a scientific theory. 

Lastly, you asserted on page 61 “It is impossible to overstate the importance of the historic cataclysm that was the Destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 AD.” Sorry, but it not only IS possible, you have done it. If that post-millennial doctrine were true, the real proof would have been unmistakable over the next thousand years, especially the end, but of course, it didn’t look at all like the Millennial Kingdom of prophecy – because Christ’s earthly kingdom, while very near, has not yet begun. You would know that if you studied the Bible from the literal Hebraic perspective, but you don’t and I respect that as your right within the bounds of Christian liberty. 

My point with the prior paragraph is to illustrate that factionalism will be the death-knell to any attempt to build unity on a theological foundation, which is why the Founders and subsequent Christian generations chose the broadest possible platform – Bible-based Yahweh-honoring monotheism (exemplified in our national motto, “In God we trust”) – and not any flavor of Christian sectarianism (which led to many serious conflicts among the denominations in our early days as a nation and thus the ban on establishing state “religions” – meaning “denominations” — in the “Establishment Clause” of our constitution.)  

I don’t expect you to change your theology based on one letter from me, but I do hope you will reconsider your gratuitous exclusionary rhetoric regarding our spiritual cousins in the House of Judah, treating at least the many who share our cultural values (and the all-important Creationist paradigm) with the same basic respect and comradery you show to Atheists in the MAGA and conservative movements. And I offer my assistance in making this necessary course-correction if you care to accept it. 

Pastor Scott Lively, J.D., Th.D.

American Babylon and the LGBT Plague

Click on graphic to watch Prophecy and Politics show on this theme

This article got a lot of attention this week, bring picked up by several news sites including Rapture Ready and Natural News. Click on the graphic above for a short video reading of the article.

American Babylon and the LGBT Plague

Christ is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist” (Colossians 1:15-17).

She had a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and the unclean things of her fornication; and upon her forehead a name written, Mystery, great Babylon, the mother of harlots, and of the abominations of the earth” (Revelation 17:4-5).

Truth is the perspective of God about His Creation. He is omniscient, meaning His perspective is flawless and infinite. He is omnipotent, meaning he has absolute sovereignty over all He has made. And He is omnipresent, meaning He exists in and sustains every part of it.

We know this not only because the Bible tells us so, but because the Creation itself testifies to it, so clearly that those who fail to recognize God’s authorship have NO EXCUSE (Romans 1:18-20). That deliberate choice to suppress truth is what damns every lost person to Hell: not sin, not false doctrine, not idolatry, not law-breaking but simply unbelief in Christ. “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:18).  

Because of Adam’s sin, every person begins life on the “down” escalator, Hell-bound, absent an affirmative confession of faith in Christ. “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9-10). Salvation really is just that simple.

It is sanctification, or becoming Christlike over the course of our lives, that is the hard part, as we who are justified await glorification (perfect spiritual completion) upon His second coming. We are promised in Philippians 1:6 that He who began that good work in us WILL be faithful to finish it.

How does all this relate to American Babylon and the LGBT plague? Bear with me.  

As Paul warns in Romans 1, suppression of truth about God doesn’t just foreclose salvation to you, it sets you on a path AWAY from sanctification, so that instead of becoming increasing more clean, healthy, life-affirming and Christlike, you become increasingly more dirty, sick, death-affirming and anti-Christlike. The far end of that path is the reprobate or depraved mind that the Bible associates specifically and singularly with homosexuality, which in turn is associated with a long list of civilization-destroying behaviors. Not every sinner goes that far down the path of defiance, but more will do so the more they see others do it.

Importantly, the warning is not primarily about the consequence to individuals, but to society as a whole. And it is the same warning given both to Noah’s generation before the Great Flood and to Sodom and Gomorrah before they were incinerated. Bottom line: the widespread normalization of homosexuality is THE key harbinger of God’s wrath from Genesis to Revelation. This truth is crystal clear to those who actually study the evidence as I have summarized it in the chart below and explained in detail in my free book The Petros Prophecy: Simon Peter’s Prophetic Warning About the Heresy of the Last Days.  

The reason that people have no excuse for denying the existence of God or redefining Him to suit themselves (which is just another form of denial) is that WE are part of the Creation. The plainest, most inescapable truth about Creation is that we are male and female by design. To deny one’s DNA-dictated and physiologically self-evident binary heterosexual identity is not a joke. It is deep-seated mental illness and spiritual rebellion at the same time.

Critically, whatever the cause may be, no degree of temptation to indulge oneself in homosexuality or transgenderism, nor the degree of one’s weakness in resisting that temptation, justifies the choice to DEFINE oneself by anything that God calls an abomination (Leviticus 18:22, Deuteronomy 22:5). 

Where is America on the scale of rebellion against God in these matters? We are leading the entire world! Democracy, human rights, the rule of law and the liberal world order have all been redefined since the Obama regime to prioritize sexual deviance. Should the MAGA “red wave” be defeated in November, this entire generation of young people will be coercively recruited to LGBTism beyond anything ever seen in this world. No human effort will be able to stop it.

US hegemony has been virtually synonymous with global LGBT cultural arm-twisting since Obama with only a partial slowdown under President Trump (who shamefully endorses “gay marriage” – which may have been the spiritual reason he lost the White House – just like Solomon’s embrace of deviance cost his descendants David’s throne). (Beware of LGBT Trojan Horses in the MAGA movement!)

Likewise, an Obiden victory over pro-family Russia in the Ukraine war (strengthening and enhancing America’s sole-superpower status as global LGBT agenda-enforcers) would absolutely ensure Ukraine and all of Europe would get the same treatment as American schoolchildren – backed 100% by the Demons of Davos. Some will cringe at this idea, but Russia may be the only hope for stopping the globalists in Europe and saving the Ukrainians (and all Europeans) from a fate WORSE than death – the LGBT enslavement of their progeny.

It is impossible for me to summarize America’s current geopolitical role without being reminded of Revelation 18:2-3: “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.”  

But God also speaks to the Christian remnant in this passage, saying: “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities” (Revelation 18:4-5).

Coming “out of her” may mean many things, but one of them certainly is personally distancing ourselves spiritually, culturally and politically from America’s embrace of all-things LGBT. It is also essential for the remnant collectively to expel “gay theology” and LGBT ideology from Christendom, the conservative/MAGA movements and the lives of our children and grandchildren. 

Being Christlike ALWAYS means speaking plain truth to defeat lies. Sometimes it also means kicking over tables and driving bad people away with whips (John 2:15). As always let the Spirit be your guide in how and when you do that, but do something!

Dark Brandon Rising

Barack Obama’s Avatar, the putative president Joe Biden, debuting as “Dark Brandon, September 1, 2022

Could OBiden’s Nazi-themed speech of September 1st have been subtle psychological preparation of the American people for imminent war with Russia and a not-so subtle taunt and mockery of Vladimir Putin’s pledge to de-Nazify Ukraine (and the west)?

Dementia Joe wasn’t always Barack Obama’s avatar, but as what’s left of his mind has slipped slowly into the shadows, he’s become more and more obviously just a skin suit for the Fundamental Transformer. Obama’s biggest challenge in pulling this off has been the “just plain likeable Grampa Joe” narrative that the Uniparty had settled on to get him “elected.” Grampa Joe’s creeping dementia (or should that read ‘demented creepiness’?) has been far too obvious to hide from the general public which increasing perceives him as weak and incompetent. All this has happened while the same narrative-spinners have cast Trump as the personification of evil menace – a towering monster so threatening to “our democracy” as to justify the impressment of every person, agency, organization and resource in an all-out war to stop him, the constitution be damned.

However, because the Obama team all think like pot-smoking Hollywood scriptwriters they perceive Biden’s negatives not so much as a reflection of policy failures but as a deficiency in his narrative. And conversely, they believe the public likes Trump better because of HIS narrative. Naturally, their pothead solution is to make Biden look more like Trump (not the real Trump, but the Trump of their narrative). If the public wants Hitler instead of Grampa Joe, so be it.

Thus, the invention of “Dark Brandon:” floated as a sneak preview for a while in the chat-rooms of the creative elites, and then bursting fully-formed onto the political scene in Hitleresque glory like the launch of a new Marvel superhero. His shocking diatribe against MAGA Americans on 9/1/22 wasn’t just hate-speech, it was the launch of a marketing campaign, a rhetorical call to domestic political war, and, very possibly the psychological preparation of the nation for actual war against Russia. (Is that the real reason OBiden was flanked by Marines?)

Trump’s greatest sin per Obama/Clinton propaganda is his “treasonous collusion with Russia.” No amount of hard proof de-bunking it will ever kill that accusation: it is the Hitlerian Big Lie of our time, and the essential cornerstone of the defense strategy of the criminal conspirators behind the political enslavement of Ukraine and the plundering of its vast riches. Only Russia has the power to break their stranglehold and expose their crimes, and that is the main reason for the unprecedented flood of US money and weaponry into Ukraine, even to the point of drawing down our own arsenal, and the heartbreaking, needless sacrifice of countless Ukrainian lives.

Of course, much of that treasure is to buy the silence and cooperation of their Ukrainian oligarch co-conspirators, whom they rightfully fear will flip on them if they believe criminal prosecutions by a victorious Russia are inevitable. And that prospect looms larger every day because, contrary to US war propaganda, Russian has been handily winning the war all along and has just crushed the best of the best of the remainder of the US trained Ukrainian army in its long-awaited counter-offensive along the Donbass front. Truth be told it was a humiliating disaster.

At this point, the only hope of a Ukrainian victory, and a continuation of the cover-up of the Ukrainian crime scene, is direct US military involvement. That would mean WWIII (which may have been the plan all along, in furtherance of the already-unfolding global great collapse before the great reset, framing Putin as the scapegoat for all of it). How it starts is an open question, but some sort of false-flag here or there is likely. When? Perhaps on 9/11, just like their Benghazi debacle – a do-over on a grander scale.

[9/10 UPDATE: Yesterday’s significant Ukrainian breakthrough against Lugansk People’s Republic forces on the northern Donbass front appears to be a very thinly veiled US/NATO-led operation, in coordination with western media suddenly bragging about calling Putin’s bluff on outside interference. Obama’s playbook since the 2014 Maidan coup has always been to force Russia to take action through un-ignorable provocations and then accuse Russia of unprovoked aggression. This pivotal battle, especially if it causes Russia to strike NATO in retaliation (or a false flag is staged to make it look like Russia did), could be the trigger to WWIII. Is the timing of this battle on the weekend of the 9/11 anniversary just coincidence?]

On the election front, don’t forget that pro-Ukraine propaganda by the leftist and neo-con media has proven to be by far the most effective wedge for splitting Trump’s MAGA base – a fact which increases the likelihood of war. (And has deep conspiratorial implications for the RINO establishment GOP’s just-announced “Commitment to America” theme in the home stretch of the election. A “bipartisan” call to wartime unity could paint the anti-war MAGA faction as an unpatriotic and traitorous fringe – ostensibly vindicating Dark Brandon’s accusations, and neutralizing the red wave, especially in back-stabber McConnell’s RINO-controlled Senate.)

The Obama team knows that the American people have no confidence in the ability of wimpy Grampa Joe to lead America to war against Russia. But they believe Dark Brandon could change their minds. In reality, it’s just Obama switching to a more suitable avatar.

All acting is by definition deception. You are not who you’re pretending to be. But acting through an avatar is a special kind of deception because you can do it somewhat or completely anonymously, depending on the circumstances. That adds a sense of invulnerability that fosters risk-taking and diminished inhibitions. When Avatarianism is combined with pot-head delusions of grandeur and the sense of megalomaniacal entitlement you get Barack Obiden in the form of Dark Brandon – and all the chaos and insanity that come with it. If it can be imaged as a Hollywood movie, it is within the realm of possibility of becoming an actual Dark Brandon strategy.

But there’s a darker interpretation of all this, in which key players know exactly what they’re doing and the Dark Brandon transformation is a reflection of deliberate diabolical evil, not stupidity. This takes us into the realm of biblical prophecy and demonology.

Human operation through an avatar is virtually identical to the demonic possession of a human. The avatar is merely a disposable host for the human agent. The possessed human serves the same role for a demon. The parallel to Obama’s presumed “possession” of the Biden avatar is remarkable.

The visual staging of Dark Brandon’s debut was strikingly similar to that of Obama’s own acceptance speech for the 2008 Democratic nomination for president, which, like Hitler’s Nuremberg rally stage, was directly modeled on the Pergamum Altar – the “Seat of Satan…where Satan dwells” in Revelation 2:13. Accidental? Unlikely.

In my book-in-progress Dynasty of Darkness , the Antichrist of Daniel 11 and Revelation 13 is not one single person, but just whatever person the demon Satan happens to be in possession of at any given time. I have never hesitated to state that Obama is the best fit for the Antichrist I have seen in my lifetime. If, as Dark Brandon, he launches WWIII, unleashing the four horsemen of Revelation 6 and Matthew 24, I’d say that’s pretty much definitive proof. And I’d be urging prophecy watchers to start counting down the 3 ½ years before he steps out from behind Dark Brandon to fully reveal himself as himself.

Only Christianity can Defeat Marxism

“For we must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us. So that if we shall deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken, and so cause Him to withdraw His present help from us, we shall be made a story and a byword through the world.”

John Winthrop, A Model of Christian Charity (1630)

“Any country grounded in Judaeo-Christian values can’t be overthrown until those roots are cut” 

Antonio Gramsci, Founder of the Italian Communist Party,
Prison Notebooks (1929-1935).

Conservatism is a loser’s game – by design. In concept and practice Conservatives fight to “conserve” the always leftward-drifting status quo, while Progressives pursue “progress” toward the Marxist vision of a Socialist Utopia. As GK Chesterton wrote in 1930: “The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected. Even when the revolutionist might himself repent of his revolution, the traditionalist is already defending it as part of his tradition.” 

In reality, the Marxists stole all their ideas from the true progressive worldview, biblical Christianity, and normalized the “progressive/conservative” paradigm to guarantee that the “tide of history” would always advance their agenda. 

The Christian concept of “progress” was showcased by lawyer Winthrop in his famous sermon/essay envisioning America as a model of Christian charity and values. Republican icon Ronald Reagan and Democrat icon John F. Kennedy both invoked Winthrop’s sermon to reaffirm that shining vision as the essential American ideal. 

How did the Marxists eventually supplant that vision with their own? First, in the early 1900s they perverted Scripture to create a counterfeit “social gospel” to divorce “goodness” from God and established a counterfeit alternative moral code we call “political correctness” which calls good “evil” and evil “good” (Isaiah 5:20). Over time, that code became dogma, enforced ever more harshly by their own version of blasphemy laws which punish dissenters through such things as “anti-discrimination” policies, “hate speech” codes and “DIE” oaths (Diversity Inclusion and Equity). This very short clip encapsulates the DIE’s goal for Christian America

They also substituted the Bible’s promise of Christ’s Millennial Kingdom with their utopian fantasy of human self-perfection through social engineering, eugenics and transhumanism. In their corrupt alternative Atheism, statism and sexual anarchy replace godliness, individual sovereignty and the marriage-based natural family. And “progress” is measured by the extent and pace of the transition.

While a significant part of the American population was being secularized by the Marxist “social gospel” strategy, the terms and framework of the cultural/political debate were also being secularized to fit the conservative/progressive paradigm with all of its implicit Marxist presuppositions. The growing plurality of “non-religious-people-with-traditional-values” (and, shamefully, a large number of Christians) were duped into adopting the “conservative” label, not realizing it was a logistical trap which locked them in the role of foot-draggers, forever doomed to eat the dust of the progressive course-setters on an ever-leftward march to “utopia.” It’s why so many “conservatives” today embrace “gay marriage” while still (temporarily) fighting transgenderism, but almost nobody still fights against sex outside of marriage. I explained this phenomenon more extensively in my 2019 article The False Choice of Conservative vs Progressive.

In my follow-up article The False Choice of Socialism vs Capitalism I explained that:  

“The origins of left/right progressive/conservative polarization come from France during its revolutionary period that started in the 1790s. The French Revolution, like the American Revolution, was ultimately a war by the “lower classes” against the top-down rulership of European monarchies.

“Crying ‘No King but Jesus,’ the children of the First Great Awakening (1740s) in America…won that war in 1776, creating the world’s first, best and longest lasting constitutional republic: a non-sectarian Bible-based model embraced by theists and deists alike that ended both rule by Monarchy and formal class distinctions.

“The French, however, associated Christianity with the corrupt Roman Catholic system then undergirding the French monarchy and thus rejected the Judeo-Christian framework of the American model….The French Republic which emerged from the revolution was forced back under Catholicism by Napoleon and pursued a pre-Marxist proto-socialist agenda….That ended with the “June Insurrection” of 1848 in which ten thousand unemployed workers were slaughtered by the government for protesting a subsistence-level “welfare” program…. 

[Importantly, the newly published] Communist Manifesto (1848) by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels was translated to French and published in Paris a few weeks before the June Insurrection… [where] the French parliament in 1848 was a political battlefield pitting the “Party of Movement” (progenitors of the progressives) against the “Party of Order” (the pro-Royalist ‘conservatives’). The Party of Movement sat on the left and the Party of Order sat on the right in their assembly hall. 

So the framework for the Marxist “tide of history” narrative in which they play the ‘progressive’ heroes fighting for freedom and liberty for the oppressed, and we’re the ‘conservatives’ defending the status quo of privilege for the rich and powerful [has never changed].”  

What has changed is that Christians have forgotten that Christianity is the true “progressive” agenda which imposes an affirmative duty of upon believers to be active stewards of civilization and culture. Ironically, that is also the forgotten core message of John Winthrop’s iconic sermon, whose primary purpose was to exhort believers, whether rich or poor, to voluntarily share their resources for the good of the whole community – the exact opposite of the Marxist confiscation and redistribution schemes that would emerge two centuries later. But he also implied/predicted there would be cultural war between these views.  

As he wrote in 1630 “The Lord will be our God, and delight to dwell among us, as his own people, and will command a blessing upon us in all our ways. So that we shall see much more of his wisdom, power, goodness and truth, than formerly we have been acquainted with. We shall find that the God of Israel is among us, when ten of us shall be able to resist a thousand of our enemies; when he shall make us a praise and glory that men shall say of succeeding plantations, ‘the Lord make it like that of New England.’ For we must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill….Therefore let us choose life that we, and our seed may live, by obeying His voice and cleaving to Him, for He is our life and our prosperity.”

The culture of life and the culture of death have always been in a winner-take-all war. There is no neutral ground, Christian. What Winthrop wrote in 1630 is true today. You must get and stay on the right side of the battle line, and that begins with how you think about Christianity itself. It is not a passive faith, and your job is not to resist change or be submissive in the face of it. The opposite is true. Christianity is about “pulling down strongholds and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God” – in which campaign we are intended to be “more than conquerors.” Conservatives are doomed to failure, but WE Christian Constitutionalists are the true progressives whose pro-active evangelical persuasion of the world to live biblically is the solution to every problem the Marxists have caused.

The Skunk Factor: The Role of “Weed” in America’s Decline

America’s “New Normal”

Shortly before my first run for governor of Massachusetts in 2014, the Bay State became one of the first to legalize “medical” marijuana, and would soon legalize recreational use. I was one of five candidates in the race that included uber-RINO Charlie Baker, ultra-corrupt Democrat Attorney General Martha Coakley, and three Independents: Progressive darling Evan Falchuk (launching a new Socialist party), businessman Jeff McCormick, and yours truly. My reason for running was two-fold: to have a platform to shine the light of the gospel in the darkest arena of human affairs – politics – and to break out of the “Saul Alinsky box” the leftist media and LGBT-fascists had put me in in furtherance of their strategy to bankrupt and humiliate me with litigation and drive me from the state.

Under any other circumstances the “anti-gay” pariah-pastor Scott Lively would NEVER have been granted any respect or coverage in the highest state race in the bluest state, but by the grace of God, Socialist hero Falchuk was also running as an Independent and it would have been impossible for the powers-that-be to have given him a platform while excluding the other two Independents (especially since McCormick had the money to make them regret it if they had tried). And so they were forced to include me in election interviews and news coverage and in both of the official debates televised live statewide! I pulled no punches in either debate, calling out Baker and Coakley on abortion as a form of murder, chastising Baker for his support of the LGBT agenda, and championing the biblical worldview on every issue boldly and unapologetically. It was glorious!

But the most consequential issue of that period was actually the legalization/normalization of marijuana, and I was the only candidate to take a strong stand against it. It featured most prominently in the first debate, held in filled-to-capacity Symphony Hall in Springfield. I got the best laugh of the event when the question came round to me, saying “I’ve probably smoked more pot than anyone else in this room. I smoked mountains of it.” After the laughter subsided, I followed up by saying “I am therefore the most qualified person here to address the subject” and proceeded to make the case that the “medical” aspect of the legalization (while legitimate in a limited way) was mostly just a pretext for decriminalizing recreational use, and that would have serious negative social consequences.

I started smoking pot at fourteen when a hippie-dude picked me up on a country road hitch-hiking home from my girlfriend’s house. I had been an eager consumer of alcohol since the age of twelve, and “weed” was a welcome addition to my wild and rebellious lifestyle. Although I took many other drugs over the next dozen years, marijuana was my drug of choice, and not just because it was cheap and easy to score. I loved the feeling of “creative genius” that came over me when I got high, when all of my thoughts and imaginings seemed so much more interesting and exciting. But it was all just self-delusion, as I discovered from later reviewing, sober, the notes I had written while high. Nevertheless, like so many others of my generation, including many people still enslaved to it (and defending it now as “medical use” lol ), I became a full-fledged pot-head.

In reality, marijuana makes you stupid, not smart. It’s probably the single highest factor in the educational failure of teenagers – especially inner-city Black kids who have ready access to it. When Anne and I personally ran our inner-city mission in Springfield, MA from 2008-2015, next door to Commerce High School, we witnessed dozens of clusters of teens ducking into alleyways (and behind our church) to smoke weed on their way to school every morning. You can’t learn anything when you’re high, and when you come down from the high you suffer with dull-witted lethargy for the rest of the day or until you smoke some more. As pothead Tom Petty sang in Learning to Fly “coming down is the hardest thing.”

I was one of the first potheads at my high school. At the start of my 9th grade year (1974), there was a small handful of us who would sneak off into the woods to get high each morning before the first bell. By the end of that school year there were over a hundred. I had been on the honor roll through the 8th grade and even skipped a grade in science, but within the first two weeks of smoking pot I sank from the very top to the very bottom of my algebra class and a year or so later completely dropped out of school.

It is commonly argued that marijuana is not an addictive drug, but that is a egregious and socially destructive lie. True, it’s not physically addictive like heroin, and there are some people who can take it or leave it as a recreational drug, just like alcohol. But marijuana is highly psychologically addictive and is especially hard to quit because the use of it over time profoundly effects one’s ability to use reason and rationality in decision-making. That’s a handicap that lingers for weeks after you stop because the active drug THC stores up in your fat cells and continues releasing slowly in the body. I didn’t feel fully normal again literally for months after I finally stopped after 14 years of use.

Marijuana use can also cause schizophrenia/psychosis – which may explain periods of extreme paranoia I occasionally suffered. But thankfully, it didn’t seem to cause lasting brain damage. So when at 28 I rediscovered personal ambition and the capacity for long-term planning in my post-pothead life (shortening one’s time-horizon is another side-effect of pot) I was eventually able to finish college, graduate law school and establish my own law firm.

Looking back, I recognized in my own life the little-noted truth that marijuana addiction severely stunts your emotional growth. And when I started trying to save marriages in my Christian family-law practice, I recognized that factor in the lives of some of my clients and/or their spouses, too. It was practically axiomatic that if one party was a regular marijuana user there would be no reconciliation in that relationship because the pot-head was simply too self-absorbed and emotionally immature to change.

I was shocked during my 2014 campaign to learn how many self-described conservatives wanted marijuana to be legalized and how vigorously they would parrot the “medical use” talking points. In all but a few cases I could see that was just a smoke-screen (pun intended) and they were just potheads like I had been. But it helped me to understand why legalizing weed was and is such a high priority for people like George Soros, who has heavily funded the effort nationally.

Why? Because habitually smoking pot makes you irrational and self-centered, robs you of initiative and keeps you emotionally immature. In other words, it turns otherwise normal people into weak-minded liberals – the perfect citizens for a dictatorial Socialist regime.

So in your assessment of what has gone in wrong in America – and why so many people have gotten swept up in nonsensical Antifa and BLM delusions and LGBT lunacy, submitted mindlessly to medical tyranny, and/or have dropped out of the workforce to collect welfare and laze around at home – don’t forget “the skunk factor.” That stink you’re smelling in the presence of a pothead isn’t just the dope himself – it’s the toxic stench of deliberate civilization-destroying social engineering by an elite class who wants EVERYONE stoned to better control us.

The Homosexual Hijack of the Holocaust

Part Three of The Battle for Measure 9

You must not lie with a man as with a woman; that is an abomination…you must not commit any of these abominations—neither your native-born nor the foreigner who lives among you…anyone who commits any of these abominations must be cut off from among his people

Leviticus 18:22-29 of the Jewish Torah and the Christian Bible.  

The dominant campaign theme of our “No on 9″ opponents was that the Oregon Citizens Alliance and me personally were “like the Nazis” for opposing LGBT civil rights status based on “sexual orientation.” It was this deeply offensive and utterly false propaganda campaign that initially led me to team up with Orthodox Jewish Holocaust researcher Kevin Abrams to write The Pink Swastika: Homosexuality in the Nazi Party, and to develop strong relationships with numerous pro-family conservative Jews around the nation. But in the process, I uncovered a conspiracy among the LGBTs to basically steal the Jewish Holocaust for themselves for political leverage.  

Contrary to today’s rising chorus of fringe historical revisionists of the anti-Zionist movement, the Holocaust was an actual plan and policy of Nazi Germany, totally consistent with the philosophy and practice of the eugenicist elites of the early 20th Century. Adolf Hitler, John D. Rockefeller, John Harvey Kellogg, Margaret Sanger, and Josef Mengele were the Klaus Schwabs, Justin Trudeaus, Gavin Newsoms, Jacinda Arderns and Anthony Faucis of their generation: protean transhumanist sociopaths for whom humanity was mere cattle whose utility could and should be improved by scientific experimentation and selective breeding/culling.  

Addressing the future of eugenic advancement in Mein Kampf (1924), Hitler praised the United States as the “one state in which at least weak beginnings toward a better conception are noticeable. Of course, it is not our model German Republic, but the United States.” He would devote his life to overcoming that shortcoming.

Eugenics was the heart of Hitlerian ideology and the source of such diverse Nazi policies as the Master Race theory, the Lebensborn Aryan human breeding farms, the bizarre “science” of phrenology (skull measurements), Dr. Mengeles’ lab experiments on concentration camp prisoners and of course, hatred of the “inferior races,” especially the Jews, whom Occult Queen Helena Blavatski condemned in her book “The Secret Doctrine” as the holdovers of the primitive “root race” that proceeded modernity’s superior Aryan “root race” in her theory of the cyclical evolution of humankind. 

Crazy Blavatsky’s “Theosophical Society” was represented in Germany by Guido von List and Jorge Lanz von Liebenfels who together formed the Armanen Order that played a huge role both in Hitler’s personal life and in the creation of the Nazi Party. They were the first to use the swastika in Germany more than a decade before the Nazi Party was formed, and Lanz von Liebenfels was rightly called “The Man Who Gave Hitler His Ideas” in a 1958 book by Wilfried Daim. Hitler was an avid reader and collector of Liebenfels’ magazine Ostara, which blended occultism and eugenics. I have fully documented this history in Chapter Two of The Pink Swastika. 

(I can personally attest that the Theosophical Society still operates around the world, having stumbled onto one of it’s lodges when I lived in heavily occult-influenced Portland Oregon. And a revived version of the Armanen Order also exists in Germany.

So, yes, the Holocaust was a real historical event, and the malign ideology that spawned it is alive and well today. Attempts by nut-jobs to rehabilitate uber-eugenicist Hitler as a wrongly “canceled” and misunderstood hero of nationalism are as traitorous to humanity as they are stupid.

However my focus in this article is the Holocaust as a symbol of victimization of the Jews specifically, and how the LGBT movement has, to a limited extent, hijacked it to serve their own political agenda.

Kevin Abrams and I wrote The Pink Swastika in large part to debunk the myth of a “Gay Holocaust” in Nazi Germany equivalent to what the Jews suffered. We proved their claims were wildly exaggerated and that their adoption of the inverted pink triangle (used by the Nazis to identify the relatively small number of homosexual in labor camps – not the death camps) was a cynical political ploy to hijack the Holocaust, just as they had hijacked the rainbow flag and control of the Black civil rights movement from the Black Panthers and Jesse Jackson’s “Rainbow Coalition.” 

In addition to our book, we created the International Committee for Holocaust Truth in 1996, whose most prominent members were the late Drs. Judith Reisman and Howard Hurwitz, and Rabbi Yehuda Levin. We then published a report for the ICHT titled “Refuting ‘Gay Holocaust’ Revisionists,” which I reworked for my article “How American ‘Gays’ are Stealing the Holocaust,”  which was published as Part Three of my book The Poisoned Stream (1997).

Working with a national network of Orthodox rabbis, we used those tools to thwart the “Gay Holocaust” plot and forced the LGBTs to drop the pink triangle strategy. In response, they shifted to the rainbow as their banner, and they downscaled and moved their Holocaust hijack efforts out of the public view.

In 1997, during my summer law program studying International Human Rights at the University of Strasbourg (France), I took a weekend trip to nearby Munich, Germany to visit the Dachau concentration camp in my research for the third edition of The Pink Swastika. There I was disappointed to find (even then) the pink triangle prominently represented in the form of a stone monument which established a propaganda beachhead that (I now know) was later expanded to a high-visibility “Gay Holocaust” memorial in downtown Munich itself, psychologically emphasizing the special importance of the “gays” relative to the Jews as a victim class.

Ironically, the new Munich memorial (which I only just learned about) commemorates the site of a “gay bar” that was the prime meeting place of Ernst Roehm’s butch-homosexual SA Brownshirts, whose role as chief Nazi perpetrators overwhelmingly dwarfs the significance of the relatively few homosexual victims they persecuted (for effeminacy and/or Communist affiliation). (See The Pink Swastika, 5th Edition, Book 1, page 43 )   

I had not given much thought to the “Gay Holocaust” hoax since the late 90s until a recent walk along the waterfront in New Orleans brought me face to face with its high-visibility Holocaust memorial, prominently featuring the LGBT rainbow. That brought all the memories of the Measure 9 campaign – and the Brownshirt-style bullying of the “gay” fascists we suffered – flooding back, along with a resolve to speak out anew against their continuing historical revisionism.

### 

Note to the reader. I have decided to update and republish my 1997 ICHT report in conjunction with the 30th anniversary of the Measure 9 vote, November 3, 1992. This article is in part an invitation to my readers to offer research assistance on this theme in the form of photos, links, anecdotes and other documentation (by email directly to me here sdllaw@protonmail.com).

You may read the original report HERE to get up to speed on the topic before you visit your own local Holocaust memorial to assess and document the extent to which it has been hijacked by the LGBTs. Also check the donor lists for evidence that LGBT mega-donors have essentially purchased Holocaust “victimhood-rights” from the Jewish hard-leftists (some homosexual themselves) who typically run these facilities in gross violation of their own religious mandate.

How American Gays are Stealing the Holocaust

This article was originally published in 1997 as Part Three of The Poisoned Stream by Scott Lively. It is being republished now as a stand-alone article as an addendum to Dr. Lively’s book-in-progress “The Battle for Measure 9: the No Special Rights Act,” which will be released before the November 2022 elections in commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the vote on Measure 9 in Oregon, November 3, 1992.

Born to Make Kiddie Porn

BORN TO MAKE KIDDIE PORN?

(RAISE YOUR HANDS IF YOU SAW THIS COMING.)

But around the world the people are getting fed up with the LGBT agenda and its poisonous fruits (pun intended).

The Greeks Push Back!

Greek political leader Afroditi Latinopoulou (below):

“There is increasing pressure from the LGBT community and specific media on the government to legislate civil marriage and adoption by LGBT people. To close the matter once and for all, both I and the vast majority of Greek society do not want to hear about marriages between men or women, let alone adoption by same-sex couples. It is something irrational, unnatural and against our religion.”

The Born Gay Hoax: The Battle for Measure 9.

The Historical and Cultural Context, Part Two.

In Part One, The LGBT Campaign for Special Rights, I detailed the how the four-decade long LGBT strategy to gain constitutional protection for their lifestyle choices under the “right to privacy” was thwarted in the 1986 Bowers v Hardwick case, at which time they pivoted to a new campaign for special rights as a civil rights minority under the Equal Protection clause of the 14th Amendment. The cornerstone of the new strategy was convincing the courts and the public that homosexuality was an innate and unchangeable condition, not a behavioral choice: the “born gay” hoax.

While the notion that homosexuals were “born gay” goes back to Karl Heinrichs Ulrich, the “grandfather of gay rights” in the mid-1880s in Germany, the idea was not truly central to the American LGBT movement prior to Bowers and many if not most “gays” treated sexuality as a matter of choice – a choice that should be protected in their view under the right to privacy.

But after the publication of their strategic social engineering blueprint in 1987 (“The Overhauling of Straight America”) it became obligatory for all homosexuals and allies to learn, parrot and promote a new narrative in which LGBTs were 1) victims of gross societal discrimination, 2) that was especially grievous because homosexual status was an innate and unchangeable condition, not a behavioral choice, and 3) that these “sexual minorities” would never be safe from hatred and violence until good-hearted people throughout the society rose up to protect them in the cause of social justice, and to enact laws against “homophobic” discrimination.

For the advancement of that narrative and agenda, the LGBTs began forming “human rights committees” in the late 1980s and early ‘90s, primarily at the city level both to create a sense of urgency about “discrimination” as a social crisis, and to bundle “sexual minorities” together with legally established legitimate minority groups to foster the perception of equivalence. Racial minorities nearly always served as figureheads of these committees (and indeed, the Black civil rights movement was fully hijacked through this process) but the driving force was always the LGBT movement.

Usually, these committees focused their efforts on combating “hate crimes,” and public opinion about these crimes was shaped by annual or more frequent reports on “hate crime” statistics, based largely upon unverified citizen reporting systems that served to create the impression that “hate” was a significant and growing problem in the community that could only be solved by anti-discrimination ordinances passed into law by local authorities. Incidental “hate crimes” (real or staged) in the community provided additional opportunities to push for these laws. If the local community was too conservative to include “sexual orientation” in the list of protected groups, it would be left out at first and added by amendment later.

This “Lavender Bulldozer” strategy, as I called it was brilliantly diabolical and very effective. They used the left’s control of the “blue” cities to work from the bottom up to establish the appearance of a nation-wide trend of citizen support for the concept of homosexuals as a civil rights minority group meeting all the elements of the constitutional legal test. And wherever “sexual orientation” was granted anti-discrimination protections, the entire LGBT agenda would eventually follow, because opposition and dissent became – in essence – immoral if not actually illegal beyond the technical parameters of the law. And, of course, the left conspired to act AS IF all opposition was illegal. In virtually every jurisdiction where it passed, the anti-discrimination ostensible “shield” against losing one’s home or job for “being gay” was in actual practice a “sword” for offensive culture war against all dissenters — including some Christian bakers other service companies made famous for refusing to submit to bullying.

Once the Lavender Bulldozer strategy had been proven at the municipal level, it was recreated across the cultural landscape, including the business realm, evolving over several decades into today’s phenomenon of “woke” fascist control of huge swaths of corporate America.

But these were just side-benefits of the LGBT campaign to gain special rights for themselves in constitutional law, which few people outside of their own circles realized was the ultimate goal.

The leaders of the Oregon Citizens Alliance were among those few who had looked behind the curtain and knew what was coming. We designed Measure 9, the No Special Rights Act to thwart their effort. Its simple premise was that voluntary sexual conduct was not a proper basis for minority status, especially not conduct which was manifestly “abnormal, wrong, unnatural and perverse.” As OCA State Communications Director it was my job to explain and defend Measure 9 in the media and directly to the voters.

My first and most basic line of argument was that if any person, by simply declaring themselves “gay,” could get the same hard-won, enhanced rights that had been legitimately earned by Blacks, it would make a mockery of the civil rights movement.

No less eminent a figure than General Colin Powell agreed with that premise, stating in a letter to Congresswoman Pat Schroeder on May 18th, 1992 ( just six months before the vote on Measure 9): “Skin color is a benign, non-behavioral characteristic. Sexual orientation is perhaps the most profound of all human behavioral characteristics. Comparison of the two is a convenient but invalid argument.”

It is a testament to the importance of Measure 9 as an attempt to prevent eventual LGBT cultural hegemony, that Powell’s eloquent summary of the truth about sexual orientation can hardly be found on the Internet without prior knowledge of it’s verbiage and great persistence. A quote that should hold a very prominent place in the history of the culture war is more heavily suppressed by Big Tech than even the pernicious talking points of Holocaust deniers. (I was only eventually able to cite it here because I kept a physical newspaper clipping from the Salem-Statesman Journal newspaper of June 6, 1992 in my personal records.) If Measure 9 had become constitutional law in Oregon, the culture war on homosexuality would not as likely have ended with the LGBTs and their allies having the power to censor and/or “cancel” dissenting voices.

I compare the suppression of Powell’s quote to the that of Holocaust deniers intentionally, because the LGBTs’ successful hijacking of the Black civil rights movement directly parallels it’s unsuccessful attempt to also hijack the Holocaust.

I will detail that aspect of the Battle for Measure 9 in my next installment.

The LGBT Campaign for Special Rights

Note: This is the first in a series of articles detailing The Battle for Measure 9 and its significance in the history of the culture war.

The Battle for Measure 9. The Historical and Cultural Context, Part One.

Thirty years ago, on Nov. 3,1992 (the day Bill Clinton was elected president), the people of Oregon voted on Ballot Measure 9, the “No Special Rights Act,” which would have amended the Oregon constitution to prohibit the state from adding “sexual orientation” as a basis for civil rights minority status and prevent homosexuals from illegitimately gaining the legal, political and social entitlements that came with it.

Measure 9 was a world-class political slug-fest and the first truly major battle of the LGBT culture war following the Bowers v. Hardwick ruling of the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) in 1986. Bowers had affirmed the constitutional right and power of states to regulate sexual conduct in the public interest, specifically homosexual sodomy. That was a massive setback for the “gay liberation” movement because Bowers represented the culmination of a nearly four-decade-long LGBT strategy to gain constitutional protection for homosexual conduct as a “privacy right” under the Due Process clause of the 14th Amendment.

SCOTUS had long before interpreted the 14th Amendment to prevent state governments from infringing on “fundamental rights” and had expanded what constituted “fundamental rights” beyond those enumerated in the Constitution to include other “rights,” such as “privacy,” IF they could be shown to be “deeply rooted in this Nation’s history and tradition” or “implicit in the concept of ordered liberty.”

The “father” of the “right to privacy” was Justice Louis Brandeis, the secularized Jewish Marxist son of “heretical Sabbatean” Frankist (anti-Torah) parents who believed their religious duty was to “transgress as many moral boundaries as possible.” Brandeis co-authored an 1890 article in Harvard Law Review “widely regarded as the first publication in the United States to advocate a right to privacy, articulating that right primarily as a ‘right to be let alone.'” And he was made an associate justice of the Supreme Court by Woodrow Wilson in 1916 where he advocated relentlessly for its adoption as constitutional law.

While there are many aspects of the right to privacy that promote and affirm benign and civilization-enhancing human rights, there was a darker side that reflected the Frankist mindset. When finally it was embraced intellectually by SCOTUS as a fundamental right, “privacy” became the primary vehicle for advancing a Frankist and Marxist “social justice” agenda pursuing sexual anarchy through judicial activism, most famously in the landmark case first adopting the “right to privacy” as law: the 1965 Griswold v. Connecticut case (contraception on demand for married couples). It was dramatically expanded in the recently overturned 1973 Roe v. Wade decision (judicially legislating abortion on demand).

But the political driving force behind the “right to privacy” as a vehicle for social engineering had since at least the 1940s been the “gay liberation” movement led by the first lasting homosexual rights organization in America, The (Marxist) Mattachine Society (founded in 1950 by Marxist pederast Harry Hay). It’s goal and vision, as articulated by early Mattachine leader Dale Jennings was, tellingly, to promote “the right to be left alone.”

That in a nutshell is the legal and historical background of how and why Bowers came before the court in the 1980s.

However, Justice Byron White’s 5-4 majority opinion in Bowers soundly slammed the door on the LGBT “right to privacy” strategy. White, a Catholic JFK appointee and perhaps the last truly conservative Democrat on the court, left no room for doubt, declaring emphatically “to claim that a right to engage in such conduct is ‘deeply rooted in this Nation’s history and tradition’ or ‘implicit in the concept of ordered liberty’ is, at best, facetious.” A strong concurring opinion by Chief Justice Warren Burger cited the “ancient roots” of prohibitions against homosexual sex, quoting William Blackstone’s description of homosexual sex as an “infamous crime against nature,” worse than rape, and “a crime not fit to be named.” Burger concluded: “To hold that the act of homosexual sodomy is somehow protected as a fundamental right would be to cast aside millennia of moral teaching.”

Devastated, the armies of homosexual and Marxist activists retreated to their war rooms. After Bowers, they needed an entirely new strategy. They pivoted quickly from Due Process to their best alternative legal track and political theme: that homosexuals should be constitutionally protected as a civil rights minority under the Equal Protection clause of the 14th Amendment.

That juridical path had been opened in the Eisenstadt v. Baird (1971) case, granting to single people an access to contraception on demand which had been limited to married couples in Griswold. Importantly, by basing this new “right” in “equal protection” instead of “privacy,” the court didn’t just create a separate path to “gay liberation,” it utterly demolished the legal and moral distinction between sex in marriage vs. fornication. It was perhaps the first and most consequential example of false equivalence in the reasoning of the court on sexual issues.

But this separate path faced separate hurdles. To be granted special civil rights protections and benefits under the Equal Protection clause, a group had to be formally recognized as a “suspect class,” which category included only “discrete and insular minorities” determined by “a variety of factors, including but not limited to whether the person has an inherent trait, whether the person has a trait that is highly visible, whether the person is part of a class which has been disadvantaged historically, and whether the person is part of a group that has historically lacked effective representation in the political process.”

In practice, it boiled down to a three-part test: 1) a history of social discrimination, 2) an immutable condition, and 3) political powerlessness.

The post-Bowers strategy thus centered on a national propaganda and social engineering campaign that was outlined by key LGBT strategists in an astonishingly frank 1987 Guide Magazine article titled “The Overhauling of Straight America” – which was later re-framed and rephrased in a more typical euphemistic style in the book “After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90’s” (1990).

Neither the elements of the legal test nor the ultimate goal of eventual legal victory at SCOTUS were mentioned in the article, but the campaign it launched was designed to convince lawmakers and the public that homosexuals met the elements of the test.

The cornerstone of the new strategy was the “born gay” hoax, which I will address in my next installment: The Born Gay Hoax.

Daviding the Big Tech Goliath

The Bible’s best example of asymmetrical warfare is the story of David and Goliath. Goliath was a literal giant armed to the teeth and backed by a massive army. David was a young shepherd so little regarded in King Saul’s Israel that he was relegated to running errands for his older brothers who had for 40 days been arrayed impotently with the rest of Saul’s army along a battle line that was frozen in place by Goliath’s intimidation.

But when David arrived on the scene delivering lunch for his brothers and heard Goliath’s gloating mockery of the Israelites for having no warrior willing to fight him mano-a-mano, David burst forth in righteous scorn and indignation “Who is this uncircumcised Philistine who dares to the challenge the armies of the Living God?!!” Saul immediately enlisted David as his champion and offered him the King’s own armor. But David rejected it, dispatched Goliath with a slingshot, and then cut off the giant’s head with his own sword as a trophy of battle.  

Today in America, God’s people seem similarly impotent against a Goliathan Tech monopoly over an Internet domain that has all but replaced the “public square” and its “marketplace of ideas” once enjoyed as the common wealth of prior generations. This Goliath has virtually unlimited power to punish and “cancel” anyone who dissents from the official narratives of our political “elites,” who have abused their own power to grant Goliath immunity from prosecution on the judicial battlefield. We see the same corrupt government/corporate collusion in the realm of “public health” in which poisonous Big Pharma (King Og of Bashan, if you will) has been granted similar immunities to poison us. But, of course, speaking this truth about giant Og’s “vaccines” will get you crushed by Goliath as rapidly as if you affirmed the fact that Trump won the 2020 election and the usurper/puppet/stooge Biden is a traitor.  

Asymmetrical warfare in the legal arena is far different than in the kinetic military context. Military conflict pits separate entities against each other, but the legal battlefield is designed for the resolution of internal conflicts. Kinetic civil war is the result of failure to resolve these conflicts internally, causing the single entity to split into two warring bodies. But as long as the entity remains whole its judicial sphere is intended for resolving disputes. 

This has always been true since God established the “rule of law” in human civilization starting with Adam. The most refined form of God’s system was seen in the Israelite Republic, established in the Holy Land through Joshua. That period is remembered as the era of the Judges, but in point of fact the people under that system enjoyed the liberty of self-rule (under the Mosaic Law) punctuated by the intervention of Judges raised up by God whenever self-rule degenerated into anarchy or foreign enemies invaded (in consequence of the peoples’ sin).  

The closest modern replication of the Israelite Republic is the United States of America. In fact, it was the 1788 election sermon of Harvard President Rev. Samuel Langdon, “The Republic of The Israelites An Example To The American States,” which broke the political logjam that had been preventing the final state, New Hampshire, from ratifying the newly written US Constitution. 

When top-down centralized government in the form of Saul’s monarchy replaced the final Judge Samuel’s republic, God adjusted his system to emphasize what we know today as a “balance of powers” between “Kings” and “Priests” which morphed over the millennia into what the British common law called the Court of Law and the Court of Equity. Vestiges of this distinction remain even to this day in the American judiciary and in the (largely misunderstood) political maxim “the separation of church and state.”  

Throughout Bible-based civilization, Church and State have been recognized as separate sovereigns with equal but distinct roles and power, serving as “co-adjuvants” of society. (That is the true reason churches are not taxed in America – because the “king” has no authority over the “priest.” Read my essay here for a more thorough explanation.)  An entertaining example of this separation of powers is seen in Victor Hugo’s novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame, where refugee Esmerelda receives sanctuary in the church, beyond the reach of the King’s law. The medieval Christian church merely replaced the ancient Levite “Cities of Refuge,” preserving a legal concept still in use (and gross misuse) today in the leftist “Sanctuary City” false narrative. 

Interesting stuff, but how does it relate to waging asymmetrical warfare against our Big Tech Goliaths?  

The Court of Equity still exists in America with power separate from the Court of Law. An example is when a party gets a judge to grant an “injunction.” An injunction is not based on law (though it may be codified in law) but on the exercise of equity (fairness) within the discretion of, and dependent upon the ethics and honor of, the presiding judge: stopping a law or corporate policy from being implemented until a court of law rules on which party is in the right in the dispute – just as a person who had accidentally killed someone in ancient Israel could run to a City of Refuge for protection from the “avenger of blood” until it was determined if he was guilty or innocent of murder.  

Another surviving equitable legal doctrine is “unconscionability,” usually seen modernly in contract law addressing “terms that are so extremely unjust, or overwhelmingly one-sided in favor of the party who has the superior bargaining power, that they are contrary to good conscience.” (Sound familiar?)  

Modernly, equitable remedies are only available when a party cannot obtain relief unless there is “no adequate remedy at law,” usually boiling down to whether or not monetary damages would be a sufficient remedy for the injury in question. How can one quantify the monetary value of informed consent? Freedom of of speech or conscience? The right of citizen self-rule? And how can questions about such rights even be addressed when a corrupt over-reaching government has foreclosed access to the Court of Law with devious tactics like Section 230?  

Only in the Court of Equity does there remain hope to vindicate citizens rights when the Executive and Legislative branches of our tripartite government have conspired on behalf of and in league with powerful corporate oligarchs to close the Judicial branch to the victims of their tyranny. It is outrageous! And unconscionable!

On July 25th 2022 at 4:07AM YouTube terminated my account for “election misinformation” (basically for repeatedly saying that Trump won) wiping out three years of video content I had archived there and providing no meaningful appeal process or even the ability to speak with a human representative of the company. Since then my lawyerly mind has been seeking some means of fighting back against this seemingly unbeatable Goliath with the smug arrogance of an imperial monarch to whom We The People are less than serfs. 

It seems to me there is a strong legal argument to be made for an injunction against YouTube cancellations for unconscionability in the Court of Equity because Section 230 has essentially eliminated any “adequate remedy at law.” As a lawyer (long retired) my expertise has always been in the art of analysis and advocacy, not the craft of litigation. This essay is an SOS to my fellow attorneys across America. Contact me if you can help pursue this – pro-bono here in Tennessee. Or if you have the skill-set to give this idea real legs (and practice your craft in a constitution-respecting jurisdiction) by all means take the idea and run with it yourself. Everyone else, please help this idea go viral, if for no other reason than the educational value to your fellow citizens.

Kamala, the Horror of Babylon

The American experience has become a horror story that’s about to get truly scary. The most blatantly sexually corrupt – and publicly reviled – woman in American political history remains just one heartbeat away from the presidency of the United States as the Obama team waits for the exact right moment to pull the plug on putative “President” Biden. 

What started in 1620 as the dream of America as a “Shining City on a Hill” has morphed into the nightmare of “The Shining” with crazy Joe Biden as the axe murderer of cultural normalcy, Jack, and Kamala Harris as his hapless wife, Wendy, set to inherit the dystopian ruins he leaves behind. But Harris’ story goes much deeper than Hollywood – to the apocalyptical Babylonian script of Revelation 17 which America now emulates – in which she IS the “Horror,” if not (technically) the “ ‘Whore’ of Babylon.”

That old serpent Barack promised to fundamentally transform America and man, has he delivered. In his eight years in the White House he mysteriously transformed this once-Christian nation into a demon-infested Babylon, and then, from his shadow-government war-rooms in downtown DC he first orchestrated the 2020 election coup and has ever since played the part of ventriloquist Edgar Bergen to Biden’s evil “Chucky” revision of the lovable Charlie McCarthy doll (a wooden puppet controlled by an arm up his backside) as his minions feverishly consolidated their control over all our institutions under the cover of a continuing medical pandemic and a “domestic insurrection of white supremacists.”  

Obama’s next major milestone and the ultimate humiliation of the “white America” he so fervidly reviles will be the ascension of the utterly inept and embarrassingly gauche Kamala Harris to the highest office in the land, at the very height of our worst national crisis ever. 

Now, when I say Obama team, I don’t mean to suggest there’s a perfectly harmonious network of smiling servants united for the common “good.” No, it’s more like how William Shirer described the homosexual Brownshirts of the early Nazi Party in The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, saying: [they] “quarreled and feuded as only men of unnatural sexual inclinations, with their peculiar jealousies, can.” The Obama “team” of sexual and cultural deviants is a pack of snarling dogs and rats and snakes and weasels with a fair number of swamp RINOs mixed in – all biting and back-stabbing each other like Orcs – but all totally subservient to B. H. Sauron of Mordor (and Martha’s Vineyard). The only ones they hate more than each other is us.  

Shirer’s title evoked Edward Gibbon’s 16th Century masterpiece “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire” and rightly so, because the fall of both empires was the consequence of moral corruption, and particularly sexual corruption. And when the true story is eventually told of the fall of the American empire, the cause will be the same.

In the Bible, the “Whore of Babylon” is not a woman but a city.  

Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy… And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. …And he said unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth” (Revelation 17:1-18). 

However, as I document in my book-in-progress Dynasty of Darkness, (which you may freely access here) the city/nation of Babylon is very closely associated with the female demon known variously as Ishtar, Astarte, Ashteroth, Isis, Ostara and other names. Ishtar was her Babylonian name, and it was in her honor that the Ishtar Gate to Babylon was built by Nebuchadnezzar (presumably with the riches stolen from the Temple of God in Jerusalem). Ishatar was the demon consort of Marduk, AKA Bel, Baal, Zeus, Wotan, Satan and other names.

A likely human possession/manifestation of Ishtar was Jezebel, daughter of Ethbaal and priestess of her father’s Temple to Baal at Tyre. And, of course, Jezebel figures prominently in the Bible as the epitome of evil in female form. Interestingly, the Pergamum Museum in Berlin has two primary exhibits: the original Pergamum Altar to Zeus (called “Satan’s Throne” in Revelation 2:13) and the original Ishtar Gate from Babylon. I viewed them both during the Berlin portion of my research for the book. Kamala seems to fit the Jezebel profile.

Babylon means “gate of the gods,” and I believe that it, or perhaps the Temple of Marduk within it, was an actual demonic portal in the same exact sense that the Bible implies regarding the “Seat of Satan”…“where Satan dwells” (ibid).  

“Mystery Babylon” is the end times manifestation of that ancient city which prophecy gurus of various denominational camps have associated with various modern cities, most frequently Rome as the global center of the Roman Catholic Church, with its seven hills and long (but not recent) history of murdering dissenters as “heretics.”

Another guess is New York City, the arguments for which I find somewhat more compelling: e.g. it was the capitol of the United States when the constitution was ratified, has a world famous statue of a torch-holding Ishtar figure in its harbor, and is both the whoredom-spewing media-capital of the world and headquarters of the United Nations (UN – which best fits the definition of “waters” on which the Whore of Babylon sits in Revelation 17:18; “peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues”). But these are all just speculations whose accuracy awaits the test of time.

What is not speculative, is the seeming inescapable, horrifying specter of our country falling into the incapable hands of Kamala Harris as the world collapses into lawlessness and chaos. 

“Who can save us from this nightmare?” is the natural question we’re all INTENDED to ask at this stage – because it has all been staged to bring is to this very spot, where fear and anxiety make us ready to accept whatever “savior” the dark principalities and powers plan soon to unveil. Because the Whore of Babylon is just a supporting role in this real-life horror movie, while the Luciferian “Star” waits in the wings. Somehow, some way, I suspect it will be Obama.  

However, no matter what human form that false Messiah will take, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Choose you this day whom YOU will serve.

How ‘The Matrix’ is Becoming Reality

This article touches on mental health issues. If you or someone you know struggles with mental health, you might find helpful Pastor Lively’s 10-point outline for addressing mental healing from a purely biblical perspective. Click here to read God Heals the Mind with Truth

Avatarianism and the Danger of the META-verse  

After eating from the forbidden tree of the knowledge of good and evil “the eyes of both [Adam and Eve] were opened, and they knew that they were naked; so they sewed together fig leaves and made coverings for themselves…and they hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden. But the LORD God called out to the man, ‘Where are you?’ ‘I heard Your voice in the garden,’ he replied, ‘and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid myself’ …

“Then the LORD God said, ‘Behold, the man has become like one of Us, knowing good and evil. And now, lest he reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life, and eat, and live forever’ … Therefore the LORD God banished him from the Garden of Eden and stationed cherubim on the east side of the Garden of Eden, along with a whirling sword of flame to guard the way to the tree of life.” Genesis 3:8-24.

In 1999 when the focus of the entire world was on the (manufactured) threat that Y2K might wipe out the Internet we had all just started to depend upon, the movie The Matrix introduced and popularized the concept of a “metaverse:” a completely man-made and limitless artificial universe. In retrospect, the movie seems to have been predictive programming for humanity – even to the point that its creators later said The Matrix was a metaphor for transgenderism

Exactly one decade later, the movie Avatar became the second highest-grossing Hollywood film of all time, taking the metaverse concept to the next level. It was still only a vision then, the stuff of science-fiction animators and Hollywood wizardry, but in the years between the Matrix and Avatar the phenomenon of human beings operating anonymously through avatars in the limited realms of video games and on social media became well established. 

Then on November 11, 2021 Mark Zuckerberg announced the re-branding and renaming of the global giant, Facebook, to “META” because the technology to support a more fully immersive metaverse had finally arrived.  

My first response to that announcement was to predict META would become a haven for pedophiles and other sexual predators who could fully indulge their perversions without risk of arrest.  My prediction would soon be vindicated in a raft of news stories.

Over time, I have come to recognize that the metaverse has its own psycho-spiritual dimension that I call Avatarianism: the lifestyle of trading one’s true identity as a creation of God, for one or more “Avatars” or artificial projections of oneself which one invents or adopts to operate through in the “metaverse” (which includes all aspects of the Internet where people can function in the form of Avatars). Again (like drug use) the real problem isn’t necessarily casual use, but a lifestyle that usually begins with casual use. 

Psychologically, Avatarianism is a manifestation (and facilitation) of Narcissistic Personality Disorder on a mass scale, specifically “Vulnerable Narcissism” which WebMD explains “is usually the result of childhood neglect or abuse. People with this behavior are much more sensitive [e.g. “Snowflake” syndrome]. Narcissistic behavior helps to protect them against feelings of inadequacy. Even though they go between feeling inferior and superior to others, they feel offended or anxious when others don’t treat them as if they’re special.” This disorder has obviously reached epidemic levels in our society – I believe by design.  

Spiritually, Avatarianism is an extension of the satanic Secular Humanist religion in which man is his own God, and it serves the spiritual purpose of separating human beings one step further from their Creator. Just as these bodies of flesh we inhabit are merely vessels through which our true spiritual being operates in the natural world that God created for us, Avatars are vessels we inhabit in the artificial world of the Internet, a quantum leap further from association with God. And just as the term “worldliness” describes the choice of human beings to identify with the natural flesh they inhabit and not their spirit, Avatarianism describes intentional self-identification with “digital flesh” and not their natural vessel.  

Transgenderism is a transitional form of Avatarianism on the overlapping cusp of the natural and digital worlds, designed to condition young people for life in the metaverse. They are being programmed through transgender ideology to adopt the mindset that nothing created by God, even one’s own sexual physiology and sense of humanness, can be trusted as good and right – but everything can and should be changed to suit one’s self-perceptions as guided by “progressive” groomers. 

In a very real sense, a “transgender identity” IS an avatar, inside which hides a damaged child.      

I now recognize that META is an acronym for a long-term four-step process and strategy by which Secular Humanists have worked enslave humanity in a completely artificial Luciferian “Utopia.”  

  • M stands for Malthusianism which holds that unchecked overpopulation will inevitably destroy both humanity and planet earth. It is the satanic counterpoint to God’s command to “be fruitful and multiply” and the globalists’ justification for controlling and culling the human population.
  • E stands for Eugenics which is the “science” of both limiting population and controlling “the self direction of human evolution.” It is a refutation of God’s promise to supply all of our needs if we trust Him and follow His guidance (Deuteronomy 28:1-14, Romans 8:28). 
  • T stands for Transhumanism which is the use of advanced technology to transform “homo-sapiens” into something different and “better.” It is the fulfillment of the Luciferian prophecy in the Garden of Eden that through defiance of God “you will be like gods,” achieving immortality by control of the Tree of Life. 
  • A stands for Avatarianism which is the part played by the common people in this tragedy: acceptance of citizenship in an artificial world in place of God’s Creation.

Consider how the major issues of our time reflect that strategy: abortion, non-procreative sexual deviance, sterilization and spontaneous miscarriage through global “vaccine” mandates, other “vaccine” consequences like adult Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS), school-shootings and other mass murders, assassinations, riots and Reign of Terror-style mass executions (on the near horizon?), lockdown/hopelessness-driven suicides, wars (perhaps WWIII and perhaps including nuclear weapons), famine (through intentional political and physical sabotage of the food supply chain), pestilence (not just Covid), and natural disasters that may not actually be “natural.” 

These ALL further the Malthusian agenda of population reduction, using the “science” of eugenics (combined with abuse of political power) to produce social chaos (and mass narcissistic personality disorder) that justifies transhumanist solutions and drives anxious human beings toward the “escape-hatch” of Avatarianism. 

But there’s an even deeper spiritual/psychological significance to Avataianism that goes to the issue of repressed human guilt and fear for defying God. 

In 2016 my wife and I met a Muslim “stoner” on a train in Europe. As a former “stoner” myself, I had a long conversation with him in which he talked about living the life of a partying “practicing” Muslim. The most striking thing he said was that he and his Muslim friends would only party in underground settings like basements because “God cannot see you there.” I have no idea whether this is an actual Muslim teaching, but he believed it and thought he remained righteous in God’s eyes by doing so. 

Avatarianism is the retreat of fearful, guilt-wracked human beings behind artificial projections of themselves, to seek false comfort in the illusion of anonymity, believing that God either cannot see or does not care what they do through their Avatars and that humans can create their own “reality” and their own rules. We’ve all seen how Avatars work on social media where people seem to be much more aggressive, cruel and profane then they likely would be if everyone knew who they were. It’s that sense of freedom in anonymity taken one step further into theology: embracing the delusion, like the Muslim “stoner,” that there are things God just can’t see.  

Is sin really sin if it’s just in your mind? Yes, it is. The true sin of Adam and Eve wasn’t in eating the apple, it was in the mental CHOICE of believing that God could be wrong and that He did not have their best interests in mind when He set His rules. Every conscious choice is an act of the mind. Can you do or think anything that God cannot see? Scripture says NO. “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight; everything is uncovered and exposed before the eyes of Him to whom we must give account” (Hebrews 4:13) and “There is no darkness or deep shadow where the workers of iniquity can hide” (Job 34:22). Do you get a pass because you say you “don’t believe in God?” No, because He is obvious in His creation (Romans 1:20) and His truth is indelibly written on every heart (Romans 2:15).

To defeat the lie of the META-verse, simply affirm the witness of the Creation.

Establishing EADN: The European-American Defense Network

by Dr. Scott Lively, White Equalist

Pastor Scott and Pastor Constant “Steve” Cooley, co-founders of the Redemption Gate Mission Society and it’s inner-city mission, tour a Springfield, MA museum display on the history of the abolitionist movement against slavery, October 6, 2019.

It has become increasingly apparent that the “progressive” political left in America intends to fully cancel and erase the heritage, legacy and culture of European-Americans from the United States under the pretext of fighting “White Supremacy.” I am a 14th generation American on both sides of my half English and half French extraction. Like most European-Americans I agree that “white supremacy,” to the extent that it aligns with Nazism or the Ku Klux Klan is wrong, harmful and contrary to the Judeo-Christian worldview that our European-American ancestors founded this nation to advance. In fact, we are dedicated “White Equalists” whose racial philosophy is summarized in the preamble of the first organic law of this nation, the Declaration of Independence: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. We have always believed that.

However, as with so many aspects of the progressive agenda, the words and phrases leftists use are simply euphemisms to put a benign face on malicious campaigns of hate, bigotry and violence. Statistics in police-suppressed inner-cities prove that black lives don’t really matter to “Black Lives Matter.” The supposedly “anti-fascist” Anti-fa is a modern variation of Brownshirt fascism. The LGBT-driven “Diversity, Inclusion and Equity” (DIE) movement is pathologically and narrowly dogmatic and exclusive. “The supposedly “anti-racism” Critical Race Theory is simply a grievance-based system for promoting and institutionalizing anti-white racism. The “my body, my choice” invocation of “self-determination” is a one-way street to the abortuary with no regard for the bodies or rights of unborn babies or anti-Vax born people.

For far too long, European Americans have stoically endured the battering these mentally and morally-challenged anarchists have subjected us to, confident that the law-and-order infrastructure and ethics of civility and good-will we established as the core of Americanism would survive and prevail. Rather than working to bolster and advance “white supremacy,” we conceded that racism and privilege did exist (to a limited, and rapidly diminishing extent) in America, and began working even harder to achieve the truly color-blind society we had always aspired to. It was the racially-diverse but majority-white MAGA movement that proved itself most dedicated to that goal, while pointing out that the people shouting loudest about suffering racial discrimination had been living for generations almost exclusively in the bluest and most “progressive” cities.

But since the 2020 election our confidence in America’s resiliency has been shaken as one after another of our fundamental constitutional rights and systems of self-government have given way to top-down statist dictates and hyper-partisan corruption. And the pernicious ideology of cultural Marxism has swept through both the gate-keeping institutions of the nation and the ranks of our youngest citizens like a zombie apocalypse.

It is time to act on the realization we’ve all been awakening to: that the “progressives” don’t just want to change society, they want to fully control it in every possible way, and to punish everyone who ever supported the old system. And they are on track to pull it off if we don’t rise up to stop them.

European-American identity is not in the least “white supremacist.” It is multi-ethnic, multi-racial, multi-creedal and multi-colored – spanning a wide spectrum from nearly albino-white Protestant Scandinavians, to dark-skinned Catholic Mediterraneans, to olive-skinned Jews scattered across the continent. Our identity is not defined by any of those narrow categories but by the broad and deep Judeo-Christian CULTURE that emerged over the course of centuries on the European continent, and was spread throughout the world during the colonial era – to (on balance) the great benefit of all the people of the world. It is marriage based, family centered (around a loving and nurturing model of patriarchy), community-oriented and civilization-building. Its values in their ideal form are self-determination and self rule, ethics-based law and order, morals-based culture, and tolerance-based diplomacy toward outsiders.

The European concept of natural rights that emerged in the 16th and 17th Centuries during the Hebraic movement in the church embraces and promotes national sovereignty and secure borders, freedom-based entrepreneurialism, the right to own and enjoy personal property and enter into contracts free from government intrusion, and the entire social framework of citizen created and controlled “ordered liberty.”

These are a few of the aspects of Americanism that came almost exclusively from European Americans – embodied in the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution which they wrote and established as law. They are the best parts of our cultural heritage and are things to be proud of and to preserve.

America long ago embraced a multi-cultural identity as people from other cultures came to live among us because of what we had built. They wanted to be a part of it and our immigration policies were generous to them. Despite a few rough patches we welcomed everyone and assimilated them. Slavery was a grievous blemish on our history, but we overcame it, integrated its victims into our society, and increasingly prospered their children and children’s children from generation to generation.

Americans have greatly valued the contributions of other cultures to our own, and the present diversity of our society is a testimony to our goodness and generosity as a people. None of that is problematic.

What IS problematic is the army of Marxist agitators we allowed to exploit our goodness and tolerance until they gained the power to wage a cultural insurgency against us. It is these agents provocateur who have deliberately ripped off the nearly healed scabs of slavery and poured salt into the wounds for their own evil purposes. They are the snakes in the kinder-gardens luring children into sexual debauchery. They are the Satans on the high hills of corporate commerce promising that all the rich kingdoms arrayed before them can be theirs if they bow down and worship at the altar of wokeness. Their every act is designed to destroy Judeo-Christian culture.

I am only one man, and I already have many irons in the fire, but when I see a great unmet need, I attempt to meet it. My answer is to establish EADN, the European American Defense Network under the auspices of my church. I will work to articulate fact and logic-based talking points to help European Americans reclaim our heritage, legacy and culture while also condemning unbiblical “white supremacy” – thus neutralizing the enemy’s chief weapon for demoralizing our people.

Whether you are black, brown, white, Protestant, Catholic or Jew, be proud of your European-American heritage and culture. Get up and fight back. Remind America and the world how much it owes to European Americans, while showing honor and respect to the contributions of other cultures. Let’s show them all WHY America became the greatest nation on earth, by making it great again!

The Truth that could Unite Humanity Against the Evil Elites

Click on graphic to watch an episode of Lively Conversations on the topic of this article. Pastor Scott writes: I was one of the first people ever to cross this bridge over the Green River in Greenfield, MA as a newborn baby being driven home to Shelburne Falls from the hospital where I was born. It stands in my mind as a metaphor for the disintegration of America during my lifetime.

[W]hen Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law. So they show that the work of the law is written on their hearts.” Romans 2:14-15.

I was prompted to write this article by reading a piece titled “Biden’s global initiative to replace Christianity with atheism faces GOP backlash” That “backlash” won’t get much attention amidst the many more urgent news items exploding like cluster-bombs all across the cultural battlefield. But the Biden/Obama initiative illuminates how the elites defeated Christianity here using incremental secularization, and suggests a strategy for Christians to reclaim the planet by uniting theists in a movement to conserve the natural world.

Long ago in America when our society was marriage based and family centered and the health, happiness and innocence of children was a high national priority, the state of the nation we find ourselves in today was unimaginable. Like many of you, I was greatly blessed to have been born in those years – 1957 to be exact – and to have spent my childhood blissfully ignorant of the great evils that today’s children are steeped in. We roamed freely through our neighborhoods with no fear of human predators, safe under the collective watchfulness of all the adults (regardless of their politics) and were tucked into our beds each night before the television networks were allowed to broadcast “adult” material. “Adult” in those days did not mean triple-X porn, but all subject matter deemed unsuitable for children. The world wasn’t perfect, but in most ways that really matter it was so vastly better than what we face today that it seems in retrospect almost utopian.

Utopia: “A society that possesses highly desirable or nearly perfect qualities for its members” says Wikipedia. True utopia is the Bible’s vision of Christ’s Millennial Kingdom. The lion will lie down with the lamb. Children will safely play with vipers. The animals eat grass instead of each other. And the humans live in such harmony and obedience to God that the worst sin described during that era is the failure of a few people to make pilgrimage to Jerusalem to keep the feasts of God. It is the natural world as God created it to be before sin ruined the plan, and it exists for the future thousand year reign of Christ on David’s throne, because Satan and the wicked are held in chains during that entire period, pending the Great White Throne judgment. That is the teaching of the Bible if taken literally, as I do.

As in all things regarding God’s creation, there is an alternative Satanic perspective designed to deceive human beings into turning order to chaos and blessings to cursings. Modernly, that is the “progressive” view, which defines “progress” as the destabilization of all aspects of the natural order, and the self-defilement of humanity. The plan has exceeded all expectations and we’ve reached the “beyond surreal” stage where the political, cultural and corporate elites now devote themselves to coercing children down to the age of toddlers to declare themselves “non-binary” transgenders and demand publicly funded chemical castration and genital mutilation. All other aspects of the social order – fiscal, medical, legal, electoral, geopolitical – manifest a similar degree of chaos.

And, like the “Whore of Babylon,” America has exported its recipe and appetite for chaos across the world, year after year, since the early days of the 20th Century. Initially, we were far from the only center of “progress” in the world, but we advanced important elements of the plan, such as corporate-funded eugenics, and Hollywood-quality propaganda more rapidly, so we took the lead. And, of course, following WWII we gained unrivaled power to force “progress” on the rest of the world.

Now, my analysis so far is clearly from the biblical worldview, which is a non-starter for framing a universalist approach to overthrowing the elites. My intended audience is Christian social and political activists like myself. We’re the type who spread the Gospel across the world in prior centuries against all odds, and we have the drive and creativity to accomplish great things. But we’ve been outmatched in modern post-Christian America because the “progressives” have used their control of public schools and public information systems to “innoculate” the population against traditional forms of Christian evangelism and to make them perceive us as hate-filled oppressors.

“Post-Christian” societies are nearly impossible to re-Christianize because of that, and because most believers have been co-opted to varying degrees by deviously crafted false theology such as the “Social Gospel” (created by Marxist “Secular” Humanists to appropriate Christian “goodness” while rejecting Christ as its source – thus the motto of the American Humanist Society “Good without a God”). After awakening to this reality, I invested a decade of my life trying to re-Christianize Springfield, Massachusetts as a model for the church but largely failed. The problem wasn’t in the evangelism efforts to the inner-city where we were based – those were very fruitful – it was in the vicious opposition to our cultural-transformation campaign by hard-core progressive activists in government, media and on the streets, which intimidated the vast majority of local Christians and pastors into silence and passivity. The progressives, having taken power through Marxist social activism, were never going let upstart Christian social activists usurp them.

The “progressives’” secret weapon for conquest of Christian America was incremental secularization to suppress theism and foster atheism – precisely what the Biden/Obama regime intends to do at a faster pace with this new global initiative.

The key to reversal of their “tide of history” is to remember that even today more than 80% of the world’s population shares an inherently theistic or “natural law” perspective of the world. We have many different religions but all recognize and respect the natural order of God’s universe

The elites use tactics of polarization to “divide and conquer” us, but Christianity’s secret weapon is to “love your enemies” and to bless everyone through self-less stewardship of civilization as a vehicle for teaching and upholding the law of God. We never did it perfectly, but we did it very well in America for a long time, respecting religious freedom. That same perspective and practice, if applied to the task of uniting the globe’s theistic majority to conserve the natural world in all its aspects, could save us all from the elites’ emerging “utopian” transhumanist hell.

The truth that could unite humanity against the evil elites is that God’s law is written on every heart, and, despite $trillions spent pushing materialistic atheism, its most basic elements such as marriage, the natural family and the blessing of children are still self-evident to the vast, vast majority of humankind. Conserving and enjoying the natural world is our collective natural right that Christians are best equipped to champion as our own “global” agenda.

The Fall of Roe and Perhaps Soon of Old Joe

Long-time readers know that I got my start in Christian activism with the fight to end child-killing in America. On June 24, 2022, the ruling striking down Roe v Wade was released, and I spent a portion of my day reading significant parts of the opinion. Justice Alito wrote masterfully for the majority in what will go down in American history as one of the most important legal documents ever written. Of course, the greatest praise must be reserved for President Donald Trump who kept his promise to put the three pro-lifers on the Supreme Court who sealed Roe’s fate, and ended fifty years of centralized federal power in service to the culture of death. The Dobbs v Jackson ruling was a powerful blow against the Altar of Molech, and for both Life and Federalism.

Importantly, while the scandalously leaked early draft of Dobbs suggested we would get a 5-4 pro-life decision, the final vote was actually 6-3, with Chief Justice Roberts joining the conservatives in upholding the Mississippi ban on child-killing past the 15th week of gestation. To my knowledge, I am the only conservative pundit who publicly called for Roberts to side with the conservatives as a message to the insurrectionists on the left that their efforts to intimidate the court into preserving Roe MUST backfire on them. And, indeed, Roberts concurred in upholding the Mississippi law, while dissenting on the issue of overturning Roe and Planned Parenthood v Casey. To his credit, Alito eviscerated Roberts’ arguments for preserving Roe in a special section of the ruling.

Now the battle to end child-killing shifts back to the individual states, and the battle lines are clearly drawn. This is a huge problem for the political left because continued hyper-polarization under the illegitimate Biden regime has strengthened and solidified the most extreme elements of the far left inside the Democrat Party, and exposed their truly lunatic beliefs and agenda to the whole country. “Moderate” voices on the Blue Team have been drowned out by homo-fascists across the board, who now exercise effective control over even corporate America, as evidenced by the self-immolation of Disney, which has lost nearly half its stock market value in just a few months and yet openly presses on with a plan to groom all of America’s children into homosexuality and transgenderism.

Dementia Joe’s response to the Dobbs ruling was to declare that the 2022 election would now be defined by the fight for abortion. First, it won’t be defined by abortion because nothing can truly compete with the economic meltdown and runaway inflation as a voter priority. But second, even if abortion could compete, the voters are absolutely NOT ideologically aligned with the radical left’s very extreme position. And third, for once, the psychological impact of public policy being “settled law” in the minds of the general public will work in our favor and not against us.

Remember how this phenomenon worked on the issue of “gay marriage?” When the Obergefell v Hodges ruling came down in 2015, suddenly half the pro-family-leaning members of the public just laid down their weapons and surrendered because “gay marriage” had become “settled law.”

I predict that same thing will happen on abortion, and that fact, in turn, will infuriate the hard left and ratchet-UP their pressure tactics against the remaining part of their coalition still under their influence — especially political leaders. In that quarter, there’s another psychological impulse that we will observe among the zealots, which is that during this time of stress they will want to punish the ““moderate” leaders for not being pure-enough in their ideology and actions.

The cunning witch Nancy Pelosi understands this phenomenon very well and went “full radical” during the first Trump term to prevent AOC from usurping her leadership role. She could get away with that because her position is by nature partisan, but Dementia Joe can’t. A hyper-partisan presidency — on either side of the line — is offensive to the very types of American’s who capitulate naturally to “settled law.” And, he’s already earned their distrust and disfavor by losing control of the economy.

Frankly, I think the overturning of Roe may be the last straw for the putative Biden “presidency.”” No matter how far he shifts to the left, he will not be able to placate the growing “Jane’s Revenge” contingent, but every step he takes in that direction will alienate more and more of the political middle. And the rest of the Democrat elite will increasing realize their only hope to avert the total shipwreck of their political fortunes will be to toss the “Joe-nah” overboard.

While the Roe reversal is an encouragement, and the prospects for a Red Tsunami are seemingly improved, the bigger picture both domestically and geopolitically is still greatly concerning. Rats are most dangerous when they are cornered, and we know the rats we face across the world today are capable of great evil and willing to justify virtually any means toward the end of keeping and consolidating power.

The Blessing of Fatherliness

A father to the fatherless, and a defender of the widows, is God in His holy habitation” (Psalm 68:5).

Of all the factors contributing to our crisis of civilization today, perhaps the most destructive is the phenomenon of “fatherlessness.” Fatherlessness means simply the lack of a father, which tells you nothing unless you know what a father is, from the perspective of Him who created them. A mother is equal in value to God but the father is first in the order of family and society by His own design: “The head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man…For just as woman came from man, so also man is born of woman. But everything comes from God” (1 Corinthians 11:3,12).

A father is more than just a seed-bearer who cleaves unto a wife and produces children – he is God’s agent of His system called “patriarchy.” Patriarchy is the ordering of human civilization by male authority, in which the fathers serve the role of provider for and protector of their own nuclear family AND of whatever extended family proceeds from it: grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, aunts, uncles, cousins – the entire patch of the fabric of human society originating from his DNA. Every father who fulfills God’s mandate to “be fruitful and multiply” becomes in time the de-facto patriarch of his own clan. 

The “human race” is one single tapestry made up of all these patches of fabric interwoven together. The idea of separate and distinct “races” is an illusion caused by standing too close. In reality, all the things we think of has hard and fast distinctions are simply transitional shades of color, form, texture, luminescence, location. By standing back to see us as God does, every thread holds a place on a spectrum – innumerable spectra actually — and all are connected together in one whole. Even groups that attempt to limit their gene pool to select clans or tribes or nations are in the big picture inseparably connected to everyone else. 

Patriarchy is what holds this fabric together. It is the source of strength and survivability for each individual family and all the clans it connects to directly and indirectly. This is why the Bible portrays fatherlessness as the most hopeless state that a human being can find themselves in. And why James (the ultimate law-and-order Apostle of the early church) writes “Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress” (James 1:27).  

It is no accident that the first target of Cultural Marxism (endorsed by Lenin himself) was the patriarchy, by the creation of what we know today as radical feminism. And it is no accident that the first and most zealous recruits to the radical feminist movement were secularized Jewish women in Europe, chafing under a pro-forma patriarchal system, detached from its religious and spiritual roots and justifications. Today in Judaism, it seems that only Torah-faithful Orthodox Jews understand and preserve the patriarchy, while ultra-leftist ultra-angry Jewish women dominate every other form of the religion, championing every type of sexual and societal rebellion against God’s law – even by their own children who survive their zeal for abortion. Secularized Jewish men and boys are relegated to role of helpers in the feminist cause.  

But, of course, that ideological virus has spread to most of Gentile society in the western world too, so we’re now all one big dysfunctional human family in which any hint of patriarchal sentiment is bludgeoned down mercilessly as “toxic masculinity.”  

Mine was the first generation of American boys trained in feminist ideology in the public schools. I graduated high school in 1976 thoroughly indoctrinated in the feminist world-view without even realizing it. We were the first generation of boys not to be properly prepared for heading our own natural family as a protector and provider, but instead were unleashed to “question authority” and “do what feels good” which, of course, meant indulgence in sexual promiscuity to the extent that the girls would go along with that. I still held enough residual presuppositions about family life and structure – and the critical importance of the female duty to model sexual restraint for the sake of preserving the primacy of family – to be shocked when Cindy Lauper’s song “Girls just want to have fun” became a top-of-the-charts hit. Even in my very left-wing, hedonistic, marijuana-addled state I knew that was a sign of coming social collapse.  

Marxism created feminism, feminism created the crisis of fatherlessness, and the crisis of fatherlessness created the social, cultural, political and religious chaos we are suffering today.  

Fortunately, the cure to fatherlessness is within the grasp of every man alive today. It is simply to BE fatherly – to everyone. Each man is created by God in HIS image to exercise HIS authority in every role created for men to fill. Every form, function and facility of masculinity is stored in every man’s heart, mind, body and soul, waiting to be tapped and utilized for any task he sets his focus on. And one task every man is assigned in this life is to BE a provider for and protector of women and children. If speaking that civilization-saving truth makes me a “sexist,” so be it.    

Being fatherly to someone means caring for them as a patron, meaning as a source of encouragement, strength, wisdom, guidance, challenge and even warning. The love of a father is confident, assertive and nurturing in the sense of coaching but not taking over. Every man can do it, and should do it, especially with his own family, but even with strangers or any age or stage of life. For Christians especially, fatherliness can and should be a lifestyle.

Mine was the first of the “broken home” generation, and I personally had a terrible father in many of the most important roles he was supposed to model for me. Despite that, I became a very good father to my own children and as a pastor and family law attorney have helped many men to be more fatherly. So I know first-hand that it is possible, and it works!

What’s most needed now is for all men everywhere to step up and embrace the mission of restoring fatherliness in whatever spheres YOU can influence. The cure for the disease of fatherlessness, is fatherliness, and that cure is in YOUR hands, Man. What greater gift could you give to the people of this broken world than the Blessing of Fatherfliness?

Christian Russia vs Globalism

Two little-noticed news stories capture the true picture of the state of the global culture war today. The first is from the American deep red state of Idaho, where The Satanic Temple is holding a “Pride” event that features a “Drag Dance Party” and “Unbaptisms” – a ritual in which people who were once baptized as Christians publicly renounce Jesus Christ. The other is from Russia, where the national Duma (legislature) has just introduced legislation to expand its 2013 ban on LGBT propaganda to children to include ALL LGBT propaganda throughout the society. 

To my knowledge I am the only culture war analyst in the world who contends that the current Russia/Ukraine war started not with President Putin’s February 24, 2022 “Empire of Lies” speech, nor with the Obama/Soros orchestrated Maidan coup on February 22, 2014 to replace pro-Russian Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych with their own stooge but with Vladimir Putin’s signature on June 30, 2013, making the LGBT propaganda ban the law of the land.

More than any other factor in the vast constellation of geopolitical rivalries and concerns, that single act declared the Russian Federation an enemy of globalism, and more importantly in the realpolitik sense, an enemy of the megalomaniac “closeted” homosexual Barack Obama who, even then, had done more to advance the global LGBT agenda than any other living man. 

I also stand alone, or in extremely rarified company, in defining the LGBT agenda as THE last-days Biblical-worldview litmus test – by God’s own design — dividing the enlightened from the deceived.  My book The Petros Prophecy explains how and why so-called “gay theology” is THE heresy of the last days that the Apostle Peter warned us about in 2 Peter 2.  And I have been a voice in the wilderness declaring that the LGBT-driven “sexual revolution” is THE centerpiece of the Cultural Marxist strategy for socio-political transformation of the nations of the world.  My WND column of last week explained how the defilement of God’s rainbow is THE key evidence of the emergence of the Antichrist kingdom.

To most of the world, these assertions make me a “nut-case,” but I long ago stopped letting the opinion of the world influence my beliefs. My audience is thus the remnant of Bible believers willing to risk hatred and mockery to seek and speak truth. My role has been, in part, that of a prophet in the sense of Ephesians 4:11-12, and thus rejection is just part of the job.

The more difficult fork of this prophetic path has been applying these conclusions to the real-world culture war outside the United States, particularly the role of Russia, which very few Christians know much about, and where so much of the “Christian consensus” is shaped by neocon wolves in sheep’s clothing like Mike Pence. 

I never fully trusted Pence after his capitulation to the “woke” mob as Indiana Governor, when the Indiana legislature passed a religious freedom bill that strongly protected pro-family freedom of speech on “gay” issues. Pence refused to sign the bill until it had been amended (gutted) to placate the LGBTs. My WND column of that week was titled “Indiana Meets the Borg.” In retrospect, I think Pence’s surrender in that fight was what qualified him among the elites to be Trump’s “Bush 41″ VP (the globalists’ agent in the Trump Whitehouse just as G H W Bush was their agent in the Reagan Whitehouse).  

In any case, backstabber Pence  is a leading example of how the establishment RINOs cooped American Christendom in service to the neocon warmongering agenda. Even otherwise honorable men like Rush Limbaugh and Dr. James Dobson got suckered into that ideology, for example, in support of the Iraq wars. It really wasn’t until the Republican party got caught neutralizing the Tea Party movement (by first competing with and then absorbing it) that many of us awakened to the political realities and realized that paleo-conservatives like Pat Buchanan had been right all along.

Regarding the Ukraine war, the conservative movement has been slowly awakening from the globalists’ propaganda-driven hypnosis to realize that Russia is NOT the bad guy in this conflict, but was set up and used as a scapegoat by the very people who orchestrated the plandemic, stole our election and turned America’s children into sexual anarchists and social-justice terrorists.  

Being forced to take preemptive military action to preserve legitimate and essential national security interests is not “unprovoked aggression.” In fact, Russia’s legal defense under international law to all of the globalist false accusations and propaganda is very sound. If you’re not yet convinced of these things, you should spend some time reading sources not controlled by our enemy-of-the-people media. On the question of globalism, start here.

However, if you are among the remnant of the remnant who appreciate just how close our nation has come to triggering the wrath of God, and that Russia is now actually far closer as a nation to honoring the biblical worldview than we are, you will recognize that IF the Lord tarries, and IF He intends humanity to have a reprieve from globalist tyranny, it just might be that Russia, not America will be responsible to stopping the evil elites from enslaving us all. Or perhaps (best case scenario), we MAGA millions might retake our country in 2022 and 2024 and partner with Russia against the globalists (as Trump strongly implied we would in his 2016 campaign)!

Frankly, I think it is much more likely that we have reached the end of the line and are watching the final scenes of prophecy unfold. Yet, that is all the more reason to speak the truth about all things. And the truth is that Russia is now a more Christian nation than we are, and the evil people ushering in the Antichrist kingdom are based here, not there.

RAINBOW DEFILEMENT HERALDS THE ANTICHRIST KINGDOM

If YouTube video is cancelled, watch on Rumble HERE

Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall” (Proverbs 16:18). 

Every authentic Christian (and Torah-faithful Jew) knows that the rainbow belongs to God, not the “gays.” But how many realize that the hijacking of the rainbow by the LGBT movement is a leading sign of the immanency of the last days Antichrist kingdom? Cloaking itself in God’s rainbow represents far more than just arrogant disregard for God teachings in the Bible, it is living proof that Lucifer himself is the spiritual head of the triumphal “pride” celebrations taking place across the world.

Satan’s obsession from the beginning has been to take God’s throne for himself – and that is exactly what the “pride” movement represents. Indeed, the only glimpse the Bible gives us of what God’s throne in Heaven actually looks like is the Apostle John’s testimony in Revelation 4:3: “At once I was in the Spirit, and I saw a throne standing in heaven, with someone seated on it. The One seated there looked like jasper and carnelian, and a rainbow that gleamed like an emerald encircled the throne.”  

The rainbow signifies the presence and authority of God, which is why He chose that symbol to seal His covenant with mankind after Noah’s flood. In His own words He said: 

I have set My rainbow in the clouds, and it will be a sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. Whenever I form clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember My covenant between Me and you and every living creature of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life” (Genesis 9:13-15). 

What was the sin of Noah’s generation that finally triggered God’s wrath and unleashed the flood? The ancient Hebrew rabbis said it was humanity’s choice to “compose…nuptial songs in honour of pederasty and bestiality” i.e., to accept and celebrate homosexual “marriage” (Talmud, Genesis Rabbah 26:5:4).  

Importantly, God also warned that the next time humanity reaches that level of sin, He will sentence the people of the earth to destruction by fire. The incineration of Sodom and Gomorrah was a foretaste of that, as expressly stated in 2 Peter 2:6 “He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction, reducing them to ashes AS AN EXAMPLE of what is coming on the ungodly.” Jude 1:7 adds “In like manner, Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, who indulged in sexual immorality and pursued strange flesh, are on display AS AN EXAMPLE of those who sustain the punishment of eternal fire.” [Emphasis mine.]

Those verses are enough to prove that we are very close to triggering His wrath again, but there is more.  

The parallel prophecies of the “Beginning of Sorrows” in the Olivet Discourse (Matthew 24, Luke 21, and Mark 13) and the “Four Horsemen” of Revelation 6 warn us that the Antichrist will falsely portray himself as the Messiah at first. For example, the second coming of Yeshua the true Messiah is identified with the white horse of Revelation 19:11-16: 

Then I saw heaven standing open, and there before me was a white horse. And its rider is called Faithful and True. With righteousness He judges and wages war. He has eyes like blazing fire, and many royal crowns on His head. He has a name written on Him that only He Himself knows. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and His name is The Word of God…[and] the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.”  

John also testified about the Antichrist in Revelation 6:2, saying: “So I looked and saw a white horse, and its rider held a bow. And he was given a crown, and he rode out to overcome and conquer.” In Revelation 13:7, John adds “ And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” This is a prophecy of the now-emerging Antichrist kingdom. 

Take special note of the fact that God GIVES the Antichrist a crown (meaning the authority to conquer — as His instrument for testing and punishment of the world). But the Antichrist already HELD a BOW. The English word translated “bow” here is the same word used for “rainbow” in the original Hebrew, first used in Genesis 9, establishing a precedent for how it should be interpreted thereafter. Thus, the Antichrist already has possession and use of the rainbow BEORE he is unveiled as the Antichrist. Further cementing the Antichrist/rainbow correlation is Revelation 11:8 which states that Jerusalem under the Antichrist will mystically be called “Sodom and Egypt,” indicating in part that homosexuality and polytheism will largely define its culture.    

There is only one other place in Scripture where the rainbow is addressed: Ezekeiel 1:26-28: “Above the expanse…was the likeness of a throne…and on the throne high above was a figure like that of a man…and brilliant light surrounded Him…like that of a rainbow in a cloud on a rainy day. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD.” 

Of the Trinity, only Yeshua takes the form of a man, and He even called Himself “the son of man” in His earthly ministry. In the following chapters of Ezekiel He addressed the prophet by the same designation, “son of man,” and assigned him the role of a Watchman on the Wall with the duty to warn the wicked of the consequences of their rebellion (see especially Ezekiel 3:17-21). Failure to do so puts the blame for their death upon the Watchman.

Biblically speaking there is no greater form of national rebellion than the celebration of homosexuality, and, unfortunately, our society has perfected that rebellion in so-called “gay pride” parades. As Isaiah 3:9 summarizes: “The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they parade their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.” That “reward” of God’s anger is not just for the “Sodomites” themselves but everyone who celebrates them (Romans 1:18-32), in contrast to the Bible’s example of “righteous” Lot who escaped God’s wrath because he was “vexed in his spirit” about their corrupt culture and conduct (2 Peter 2:7).

The rainbow is your warning sign. If you condone, let alone celebrate, “gay pride” you choose the side of Lucifer against God and earn for yourself a share of the wrath to come. Moreover, even if you consider yourself righteous in believing the Bible about LGBT sins, failure to meet your Watchman duty to warn the wicked of these truths puts their blood on your hands.  

From Genesis to Revelation the Bible shows that God does not mess around when it comes to this category of sin. Please remember that, and your duty to speak plain truth, whenever you see His rainbow being defiled.
