The Bosqueville United Methodist Church in Waco, Texas and the United Methodist Church in general are in full damage control mode after our Geller Report exposés (here and here) showing how they’re fostering ignorance and complacency about the threat posed by Muslim migrants. The Christian Post published the irresponsible and misleading story below, falsely claiming that we accused the church of “aiding Islamic extremism,” which we never did.
The falsehoods don’t end there. The Christian Post reporter, Michael Gryboski, claims that “most of the 2015 Paris attackers were born in either Belgium or France and all were citizens of the European Union,” supposedly refuting my assertion to him when he contacted me for this story, that they were refugees. In reality, DW reported recently that “investigations have revealed that all nine men involved in the attacks had traveled to Europe together with the stream of refugees that entered the continent in 2015.”
When the media has to lie to try to discredit us, you know we’re on the right track, and that they’re getting desperate. Be sure to let Michael Gryboski (@Puritan1986) what you think of his pathetic attempt at “journalism.”
“Pamela Geller Stands by Story Claiming Texas UMC Church Is Embracing Radical Islam,” by Michael Gryboski, Christian Post, Dec 12, 2016:
Controversial political activist Pamela Geller is standing by a story on her website that claims a small United Methodist congregation in Texas is aiding Islamic extremism.
Bosqueville United Methodist Church in Waco was recently the subject of a blog entry on The Geller Report claiming that an anonymous church member told the site that their church was trying to spread radical Islam in Texas.
In comments to The Christian Post, Geller is standing by the blogger’s story for her publication, stating that she believes the UMC was “spreading ignorance and complacency regarding the jihad threat posed by the Muslim migrant influx.”
Geller also told CP that she did not believe it was possible to help settle Muslim refugees in the United States and not at the same time help advance jihadist ideology.
“To think this would be naive. It would require ignoring the manifest fact that jihad terrorists are entering the West among refugees,” continued Geller.
“All the Paris jihadis who killed 130 people in November 2015 were refugees. ISIS has threatened to send jihadis to Europe among the refugees, and they have done so.”
It should be noted that according to European Commissioner for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini, most of the 2015 Paris attackers were born in either Belgium or France and all were citizens of the European Union.
Last week the Geller Report published a story titled “EXCLUSIVE: Local Texas United Methodist Church In Waco Now Embracing Islam,” which claimed that Bosqueville UMC was helping spread Islam in Texas.
“On-the-ground sources in west Texas confirm that the United Methodist Church is potentially engaged in a massive operation designed to reprogram churches as virtual mosques in preparation for a deluge of Muslim refugees,” reads the Geller Report story.
“In a special exclusive interview just for the Geller Report, the church member explained that he became aware of the Islamic ‘sanctuary’ plan after an interim pastor began overtly preaching Sufi Islamic parables and asking the congregation to prepare for Catholic-style ‘sanctuary’ protections for Muslim refugees, including possible terrorists (ISIS, al Qaeda, etc.).”
In response to the blog entry, local news station KWTX reached out to the church, whose pastor denied the claims of the Geller Report story.
“You know you can’t believe everything that you read,” stated Pastor Gabe Dominguez to KWTX, adding, “I’ve just never heard anything like that before.”
While the Geller Report claimed an anonymous source told them the church was embracing Islam, another unnamed church member told KWTX that this was untrue….
