In 2007 I was with the late, great Pastor Ken Hutcherson in Riga, Latvia, working with a broad coalition of Christian denominations to defend Biblical marriage and family values against the global LGBT agenda. When we discovered that the campaign was being advanced by the U.S. Embassy we paid a visit there to ask why the George W. Bush administration was working against the will of more than 90% of the Latvian people within their own borders. We got a lot of double-talk by a third tier diplomat, and the next day Hutch was publicly attacked and stripped of his credentials as a representative of the White House Office of Faith Based and Community Initiative. A few weeks later, diplomats from the US and Sweden led a minuscule “Gay Pride” parade behind a double wall of 6′ steel fences and guarded by an enormous army of riot police with full body armor and machine guns – proof that they truly understood just how offensive this championship of perversion was to the Latvian people, and just how determined they were to shove it down their throats.
In 2011, my scheduled late-February seminar on pro-family activism in Chisnau, Moldova was preempted by a sudden, secretive attempt by the Moldovan government to push through an “anti-discrimination” law on “sexual orientation” — in anticipation of presenting it as a gift to Obama via an upcoming visit to the country by Vice President Joe Biden. Instead of holding that seminar, I helped a coalition of denominational leaders direct a successful 4-day nationwide citizens lobbying effort to kill that bill, explaining in numerous media interviews that such “sexual orientation regulations” (SORs) are the seed that contains the entire tree of the LGBT agenda, with all of its poisonous fruit. This was the same Obama administration that in December of that year – by Executive Order – directed all US agencies to push the “gay” agenda globally: http://thegroundtruthproject.org/obama-administration-pushes-global-lgbt-rights-into-the-limelight/
In 2016, I traveled to Kyrgyzstan where I lent my support to a successful campaign to amend the national constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman. Again, it was Obama’s US State Department, and various George-Soros affiliated non-governmental organizations (NGOs), leading the effort to push the LGBT agenda on an overwhelmingly conservative nation.
This month, June, 2017, President Donald Trump’s State and Defense Departments, reaffirmed their support for the LGBT agenda. The White House itself did not, thankfully, but thus far, President Trump has NOT reversed Obama’s Executive Order that still commands the entire executive branch to actively undermine Biblical values on sex and marriage as a international priority.
I love my country, and am deeply grieved that in the area of sexual morality we indeed seem almost to have become, as the Iranians love to chant, the “Great Satan” of the world. When I read Chapters 17 and 18 of the Book of Revelation in my Bible, I cannot help but recognize a parallel between America and “Mystery Babylon,” whether or not they are actually the one and the same. “For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality” (Rev 18:3).
What the world sees today is NOT the America established as a Shining City on a Hill, as proclaimed by the Pilgrim Governor John Winthrop, citing the Sermon on the Mount. Nor is it the “Christian nation” vigorously affirmed by the United States Supreme Court in Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States, 143 U.S. 457 (1892), nor the “One nation under God” without which “democracy will not and cannot long endure,” as affirmed by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. Christian America has been suppressed and its power usurped.
Because of our apathy and fear of “politics,” today’s America is the plaything of the Secular Humanists of the “Deep State” – which really isn’t “deep” any more, because it’s defiance of Biblical morality and abuse of every lever of political power is now blatant and undisguised. True, this demonic shadow government has long existed, and served its own interests in countless undeclared wars, “regime changes,” domestic policy manipulations and judicial subversions of our constitution, but heretofore mostly from behind the curtain. Thanks to the Internet, and an awakened and activist populist movement, the hidden hand of the global “elite” is now visible to those willing to see. Yet so many Christians remain unwilling to look.
American exceptionalism was a manifestation of her Christian heritage and culture, represented by such things as the sending of missionaries throughout the world to build churches, schools and hospitals, and sometimes sending our young men to fight and die to defend the fundamental values of Judeo-Christian civilization. “Freedom” meant the right to raise your family without government control and “Security” meant a limited government that rewarded virtue and discouraged vice through education, law and it’s own internal rules. National Socialism and Communism were the greatest enemies in our history and the Marxist ideology that underlay both of them was the antithesis of what we held dear.
For what do we now send our young men and women to die in foreign lands? The right to kill unborn babies in the wombs of their mothers by the millions? The “freedom” to indulge in every form of sexual deviance with their attendant diseases and dysfunctions? The “security” of public policy and culture that decimates families and breeds social chaos and violence? “Freedom” that promotes vice and punishes virtue? “Security” that bleeds every working family of its earnings to redistribute to an ever expanding welfare class and the bloated bureaucracy that administers it?
Where is the exceptionalism we were once so right to hail? It has been replaced by various forms of National Socialism and Communism, recharacterized as “political correctness.” Yet many Christians still cheer as if nothing has really changed all that much.
I visited 25 countries in 2016 to assess and assist the populist movement wherever it advanced under a tacitly Christian banner. Today, its two biggest victories, the Brexit vote I celebrated in London, and the Trump presidency I flew home to cast my vote for, are both steadily being undermined by the “elites.” This international “Deep State” network is the actual “Great Satan.” It’s agents in this country, from those many still hidden, to the Paul Ryans, Mitch McConnells and John McCains are united in a grand conspiracy – pretending to serve the people while serving only their globalist goals – intentionally failing to accomplish that to which they pay only lip service, while stabbing President Trump in the back at every turn.
The President is not our savior, just a tough man willing to endure rats, snakes and leeches to drain a swamp. Our Savior is Christ and we are His hands and feet in this nation. It is only the Christian nation within the nation that has the power to defeat the “Great Satan.” Let us recognize that end as our duty.
