FACTCHECK: United Methodist Church Drinking The Kool-Aid On Muslim Refugees

74

In the wake of our report Tuesday, titled, “EXCLUSIVE: Local Texas United Methodist Church In Waco Now Embracing Islam,” a local TV station dismissed the story as “fake news” without even attempting contact. The entire Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church denied any of our findings in a statement, which can be read in full here.

Unfortunately for the United Methodist Church (UMC) and the disingenuous broadcasters passing off lazy reporting as virtue, simply denying things won’t eliminate the paper trail.

UMC claim: we are not involved in any “Islamic sanctuary plan”
Fact: Semantics. They publicly support Obama’s plan for allowing thousands more Muslim refugees with minimal vetting (which even Obama’s own Director of Intelligence says welcomes ISIS infiltration).

Fact: UMC’s website includes a call for more Muslim refugees: http://www.umc.org/news-and-media/u.s.-faith-leaders-take-in-more-syrian-refugees

Fact: UMC churches already house refugees and a vast network of churches are involved
http://www.umcor.org/umcor/programs/refugees

Also, note these videos, two of which are official UMC content:

Texas UMC vid promoting more Muslim refugees

UMC: “Welcoming the stranger” [interesting phrasing that mirrors the claims of our source]

UMC in Kansas openly defies state authorities, welcomes Muslim refugees

 

*Note to church hierarchy: perhaps, read your own literature?

UMC claim: “The United Methodist Church has no belief, intention or mission other than making disciples of Jesus Christ. …reports to the contrary are simply false.”

Fact: Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) lists UMC as a “faith partner,” has a “Should to Shoulder” program with UMC to fight “Islamophobia,” and has its interfaith HQ in the Washington, D.C., UMC central office. ISNA’s founder and first president was sentenced to 23 years in prison for terrorism-related activities in 2004.

Federal courts upheld ISNA’s designation as an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing scheme in history, ruling that the government had “produced ample evidence” linking the group to Hamas.

For UMC to even share real estate with this organization is outrageous, on legal and theological grounds. If the church claims the message of Christ, it must claim all of it. To paraphrase a command in New Testament scripture, “Do not be unequally yoked” [2 Cor. 6:14] with non-believers; this is a concept which appears to be in conflict with UMC’s prolific interests.

Fact: ISNA publicly defended al Qaeda, Hamas, and denies that Bin Laden was behind 9/11 — they’ve also hosted Siraj Wihhaj (an unindicted co-conspirator in the ’93 WTC bombing) at events, a man who publicly advocates replacing the U.S. Constitution with “shariah.” Again, mere association with ISNA is by itself — appalling. 

What does ISNA have to say about UMC?

“At the national level, the Islamic Society of North America has found a close ally in The United Methodist Church, both working together in campaigning for social justice, peace and equity.”

Even assuming that nothing we reported happened in this local congregation [and accounts are always likely to vary in human interest stories due to perspective], membership in a church endorsed by ISNA is not good.

It is almost as bad as a U.S. president being endorsed by Hamas (e.g., Pres. Barack Obama, who was endorsed by Hamas.)

UMC Claim (local): “I’ve never heard of anything like that… .”

Fact: Methodist churches are microcosms in a corporate, top-down structure, and leadership has high-turn-over, as well as congregations. The current pastor has only been in his role since 2016.

Miscellaneous information: UMC records confirm several important details in our story. The Central Conference of the UMC Journal for years 2015-2016 are helpful. For the last two years, Bosqueville UMC had an unlisted interim pastor, as we reported, and one of the listed retired personnel in the Central Texas Conference is “Billy M. Patteson.”

  • Careful

    Not to mention that the Pastor in the video has no clue about Scripture as evidenced by his reference to 1 John 4:18 “…perfect love casts out fear…” This has absolutely nothing to do with being cautious about exposing your people to a culture that believes in abusing women and murdering “infidels”. The context is about believers not having to be afraid of the judgement of hell because of Christ’s perfect love as evidenced by His substitutionary atonement: he took the punishment in our place. Whatever they’re teaching them in Methodist seminaries these days apparently has nothing to do with understanding scripture and basic hermeneutics.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Lame stream Christianity has accepted islam and all its lies for the contemporary equivalent of “30 pieces of silver”. The allegedly Christian religions are stupidly accepting the lies of islam as facts, then allowing islam to influence the decision making process. There is no Commandment that says “Thous shalt be stupid” the way the religious industry now behaves, they act like there is.

    • bikerken

      Correct! There is nothing in the Bible that demands you offer your neck to satan to avoid offending him.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        The problem with much Christianity is that the phrase “meek shall inherit the earth” is misinterpreted as “the stupid shall inherit the earth”. There is a difference.

        • bikerken

          Yes! I think some people interpret “meek” as being submissive when it really meant non-aggressive in that context.

          The correct interpretation of the word meek means power under control, in Greek it means a big strong work horse. Something I found out about a year ago. Changes the perception from something week to useful. Just sayin. Also being patient and wait on the Lord correctly translated means to entwine your self with the Lord. Hope this helps you in your endeavors to keep things going in the right direction. Although you may already know this. Brad

            Thanks for sharing that bit of linguistics, people, the planet, everything evolves, the change is often not noticed. If we all do what we can to understand that has happened to explain what is happening, we can have some influence of what will happen.

    • Polysomnos: Deplorable Racist

      I do not consider Catholics or most protestants to be Christian. They are, for the most part, idolators. Especially Catholics, who will “Christianize” any pagan ritual to claim they converted them.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        As I am a Catholic, I would be inclined to disagree with you.

        • Polysomnos: Deplorable Racist

          Catholic churches are full of “graven” or carved images. Go read the ten commandments then explain to me how having a building full of idols is not idolatry.

            (KJV) (2 Corinthians 6:14-18) “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? {15} And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? {16} And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. {17} Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, {18} And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”

            Amen. As a former UMC secretary, I saw daily how the Methodist “church” is nothing more than Social Justice Warriors and leftist Marxism cloaked in a pseudo-religion. They are HARD left.

          • margstar

            I used that scripture for an Arrive Ministries pastor arguing that we must “love our enemies” and “welcome” the refugees. Arrive Ministries is a new name for World Relief, because they need to change their name to hide their intentions when they go to recruit more “workers.”
            Anyway, he said that had to do with marriage, but clearly it also includes any relationship with those who are in darkness.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            The pictures and sculptures are not worshiped, they are merely a way to focus one’s thoughts, not unlike a book. Words are not idolatry either. Christianity has allowed superstition to infiltrate it, now islam, it is time to think rater than blindly gyrate in church.

        • Ron Cole

          Christians are well advised to gather together under the umbrella of their common beliefs, as the Enemy is in total unthinking agreement that all Christians and Jews should be killed or “converted”..

          • Mahou Shoujo

            It would be nice, for a change, to see Christians and other non muslims get together and work on what they have in common rather than what divides them. When an individual comes to judgement, the question will be how you lived your life in relation to how it should be lived as a human, not how many silly rules and regulations did you not violate.

  • phrowt

    Isn’t it time that the churches in America realize they are not preaching from the Bible but from the VACUUM that is between their ears??? Christ preached Love your fellow man but not at the ignorance of his church that must be defended from ALL evil, and anyone who knows anything about Islam knows it was created by Mohammed long after Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. Islam is evil and God will bring damnation on all that believe in the practice before/instead of believing in him.

      PHROW, It is the time of Apostasy with in the churches of believers and it has been going on for many years but it was not so noticeable you must know scripture and know what that Pastor or Preacher is or should be teaching to them in the Pews, and Islam started 670 years after the death of Christ and this had to be there is a great working of GOD the Father who gave His only begotten son to pay the price for sins that we commit JESUS also came to reveal GOD to Israel and Israel knew they just did not care them in power they wanted their Messiah but not the way he came on a Donkey they wanted Him on that white charger slaying the Romans and all other enemies but it was not the time, now Islam is always rewriting their untruth to build themselves up to rule the world only one Problem GOD he will not let it happen, Satan is a part of this big time and he will have 7 years of Tribulation on this earth and it is coming upon Israel and the rest of the Gentile Nations and a most Terrible on this earth but it is not the end the earth will not be destroyed for JESUS must have HIS Millennial Reign with Israel and the saved Nation, there is much more but I will not say any more for I am concerned with people coming to JESUS CHRIST to accept him before it is too late to have a Great Gift that is there for you come to JESUS .

    This ruins one of my favorite old riddles. What is the difference between the Methodists and Baptists? Methodists can read, but, but, maybe they read too much and need to listen to the smarter Baptists. Some clever 6th Century Arabs stole the powerful cosmology of monotheism to cover their codification of Arab customs, prejudices and hostilities, but some of the inheritors of the original monotheism think they worship the same God. They will suffer a rude awakening.

    Another case of Muhammadism-conspirators telling us to think & act nationally & not globally.

    “Harass & kill them until Islamic law is the only governance”, says Koran 8:39.

    No tolerance for Islam in society, no African slaves enslaved in Mauritania or Saudi Arabia or elsewhere, no children raped, no people harassed by Islamic-police, no Islamic torture, whippings, stonings, clitodirectomies & crucifixions & torturous animal slaughters & no Muhammadism-conspiracy terrorism & imperialism.
    Islam feeds on our tolerance, it needs our tolerance, respect, it breathes on our fear.

    Our respect for Islam is it’s oxygen.

    Without our tolerance the Muhammadism-conspiracy vanishes into oblivion.

    We need a global, ethical imperialism to defeat the Muhammadism-conspiracy imperialism & free the people.

    The world should be made an English-language protectorate & English optional official language globally.

    Ban Islam, the Muhammadism-conspiracy & democracy, save lives & profound human rights globally.

    Did you know: There’s slavery today of Africans in Saudi Arabia, Mauritania(25%,50%?of population), new north Sudan, Kuwait, Bahrain, Yemen, Oman, Algeria, Lebanon, Qatar (?), Pakistan, UAE, Niger, Libya, Nigeria, Chad, Mali, Somalia & elsewhere inspired by sadist, racist slaver tyrant, inventor of slavery of Africans, mass-murderer, crucifier, genital mutilationist, clitodirectomist, child-rapist & pederast who ‘kissed’ little boys’ penises & sucked boys’ lips & tongues, theist psychopath, who burned people alive for not praying & others to extort them, who gouged out eyes & cut off body-parts, gays-killer, Jews-killer, atheists-killer Muhammad who owned Africans as slaves & said that his deity turned Africans black, so their descendants would be slaves to Arabs & Turks (Abeed means African & slave in Arabic,) (Read more about sadist, racist slaver Muhammad at WikiIslam). & IslamicState stated they want to revive enslavement of Africans in America as I’ve read here.

    Since the late 1980’s, the Methodist Church has been hell-bent-for-leather to push all the anti-American leftist policies.
    The Methodist Church has claimed your 1040 is your ticket into Heaven and many local Methodist Churches have demanded public burning of their church members firearms. Yup, leftists.

  • The United Methodist Church was moving far Left in the early 1970’s — and became anti-America, too. The social gospel, with the UMC has been preaching for decades = the far Left’s concept of social justice.

    In fact, the UMC may be the furthest Left of any Protestant denomination (excluding the Unitarian Church).

    • Tiza

      I’m ex-Methodist, but it is a long ways off from even when I was a little girl. I’m 63 now, so you can see how many years have passed. My grandfather and great-grandfather were Episcopal-Methodist preachers. I think it was that back then. But I promise you that it was different with them. It was not like this. They would be rolling over in their graves if the crap taught now was back then.

      I’m not longer in the Methodist church, my husband and I. We had left it in around 1989 or so. Now we are Christian Yahwehists and go by the truth of evidence. We take a different approach to the Scriptures of truth, which includes history and even science because science proves Yahweh lives as well. It all does.

      • Tiza,
        Thank you for your detailed response. I’m late in responding to you because I’ve been ill (kidney ailment).

        It’s tragic what the Methodist Church has become. It used to be so vibrant — so filled with the Spirit. And I loved the hymnal and the responsive readings.

        Other denominations have gone down a similar path to that of the Methodist church.

        Bible churches (some of them) and Christian Yahwehism are the Godly paths now.

  • Tiza

    Sometimes I just want to throw up my hands and scream out, Why don’t the Christians (of which I’m like an early Christian in my beliefs) understand and ACTUALLY STUDY who the “good aliens” are and the “bad aliens” are. But they want to take in all illegal aliens. They are just setting themselves up and us for misery, no joke. The good aliens, the gars or geyrs, as some places translate it, are the people who enter your country legally and wish to join themselves to you, will take in your laws and customs and become a part of you as a nation! These are those who wish to become a part of you and abide by laws, etc.

    Next, we have the bad aliens. They don’t give a flip about being here and becoming a part of your nation, your customs, want to break your laws, major lawbreakers. They will rape your sons and daughters, your wives, etc., murder your family, do not wish to work at all.

    The first group of aliens, meaning the good ones, want to work and be beneficial to your nation.

    What is wrong with the churches not even studying this? I think they are way too stupid. Are they going out of their way to have us all murdered by the bad aliens? Looks like it to me.

    It appears one conclusion may apply: the UMC has departed from the plain teaching of Scripture and substituted the commandments and doctrines of men … AND …

    So have many Baptist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal (including Assemblies of God) and more …

    Return unto me and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts: Malachi 3:7. He is still in charge of His church. It is up to the followers of Christ to return to His word and obey the clear commandments of God and not the twisted doctrines and commandments of men.

        This is the American Christian churches response to the subhuman violence of islam.

        All of the major Christian churches in America have come out in favor of importing hundreds of thousands of Muslims into the US from the Middle East, even though such a move will speed up the extinction of both European-Americans and Christianity itself.

        The Lutheran church in America has become the latest Christian denomination to make a formal appeal to Congress to allow even more Muslim “refugees from Syria” into the US, according to a report on the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service website.

        The Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS), which is made up of a partnership between the three largest Lutheran Churches in America, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod LC-MS, and the Latvian Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (LELCA), brought together over 30 Lutheran bishops, pastors, service partners, and leaders for the annual Lutheran Immigration Leadership Summit (LILS) On October 26–27.

        Lutherans-advocate-for Syrian-refugees

        According to the Lutheran news site report, the next day, LILS participants gathered for a Lutheran prayer breakfast on Capitol Hill where Lutheran representative David Cicilline (D-RI), “a staunch advocate for increasing aid to and resettlement of Syrian refugees, motivated our participants with his call for action.”

        After that, the LILS participants attended a meeting with White House officials, including representatives from the National Security Council, Domestic Policy Council, and the Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

        According to the Lutheran news site, the LILS participants then “delivered petitions from thousands of Lutherans asking for the resettlement of more Syrian refugees.”

        The Lutherans are merely the latest in the long line of all major Christian denominations to line up to plead the case for the 97 percent Sunni Muslim “refugee resettlement program” already in place.

        1. The Catholic Church, with 68.5 million members, is now the single largest denomination in America.

        Catholics-refugees

        That church is proud to boast that the United States Catholic Bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services department “resettles approximately 30 percent of the refugees that arrive in the US each year.”

        It also encourages all Catholics to contact their “local Catholic Charities agency to find out if it has a resettlement program and, if so, how you can assist them in their effort to resettle refugees and help them build new lives of hope here in the United States.”

        2. The next largest denomination in the US is the Southern Baptist Convention, which has 16.1 million members.

        SB-10-ways-to-help

        On its website, under an article titled “10 ways you can help with the Syrian refugee crisis” that church tells its members that “Global migration has brought many Syrians to the United States. Your church has an incredible opportunity to share God’s love with them as they make new lives here.”

        It then urges its members to become involved in an online “community project” called ethnecity.com, which is centered around “integrating” as many “immigrants” and “refugees” as possible into the US.

        3. The third largest denomination is the United Methodist Church, which has 7.8 million members.

        UMC-SYRIANS

        In an article on its website (“US faith leaders: Take in more Syrian refugees,” Sept. 28, 2015), it announced that “Now, it is time for the US to act,” and that its church leaders had gathered “Sept. 28 near the US Capitol to press Congress and the Obama Administration to resettle 100,000 Syrian refugees by the end of next year.”

        READ 30,000 Afghan “Refugees” in the US

        4. The fourth largest denomination is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or “Mormons,” which boasts some 6 million members.

        LDS-syrians

        On that church’s website devoted to charities, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints told its readers that “LDS Charities takes a special interest in the estimated 70,000 refugees living in Utah by supporting local refugee resettlement agencies with a variety of assistance including: Deseret Industries store vouchers, furniture, bedding, food, English acquisition, job coaching, on-the-job training, and employer placement.”

        Furthermore, the Mormon church said, “LDS Charities advocates support for local community efforts that assist relocated refugees, and it especially encourages the volunteerism of its members in these causes.”

        5. The fifth largest denomination in America is the Church of God in Christ, a 5.5 million-strong black Pentecostal church.

        chog-syrians

        The Church of God in Christ told its supporters that its “Disaster Relief Committee had been working with organizations and individuals in multiple locations . . . As refugees continue to make their way into Europe and other safer zones, we are currently working with our Global Strategy regional coordinators in Europe and the Middle East to connect with partners working with these groups.”

        6. The sixth largest denomination in America is another black church, the National Baptist Convention, USA, which has 5 million members. They, like many of the smaller black Christian churches, all support the Church World Service which has called for more Middle Eastern “refugees” in the US (see below).

        7. The seventh largest denomination is the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, with 4.5 million members. As outlined above, this church is actively lobbying Congress to bring in even more Muslim “refugees”—and has even submitted its own testimony to the Senate in this regard.

        ELCA-syrians

        According to a “Statement for the Record of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America submitted to Senate Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights Hearing on ‘The Syrian Refugee Crisis’” (January 7, 2014, available on the Evangelical Lutheran Church’s website here), the US has a “moral obligation to individual refugees and to the international community to begin immediately accepting Syrian refugees into the US refugee resettlement program.”

        8. The eighth largest denomination is the National Baptist Convention of America, a 3.5 million-strong black church. It supports the Church World Service which has called for more Middle Eastern “refugees” in the US (see below).

        9. The ninth largest denomination in America is the Assemblies of God USA (AG), a 2.9 million-strong Pentecostal Christian denomination.

        This church is actively involved in providing on-the-ground aid to the nonwhite invaders in Greece, as outlined on its blog, where AG pastors Pat and Brenda Mahar thanked church members for their money and support in their work amongst the Muslims this way: “Thank you for your contribution toward the needs of the Syrian, Eritrean, and Afghan refugees! We have used BGMC funds to help feed and clothe many refugees who are boarding ferries on the Island of Lesbos, Greece, coming to Athens. -Pat and Brenda Mahar, pastors, ICF of Athens”

        The tenth largest denomination is the Presbyterian Church (USA), which has 2.7 million members.

        PCUSA-syrians

        According to that church’s own news service (“Christian denominations and ecumenical groups urge more support for Syrian refugees,” September 30, 2015), “The Presbyterian Church (USA) is one of a dozen Christian denominations and ecumenical groups that have sent a letter to the White House, urging the president to do more to help Syrian refugees.

        “The US should open its doors to receive many more refugees. Even with more adequate funding for humanitarian assistance, some Syrians feel they will never be able to return home safely and wish to resettle in a third country. Many in our faith communities have a long and rich history of welcoming refugees. We encourage the US to accept more Syrian refugees and to expedite the processing of these applications.”

        In addition to the Presbyterian Church (USA), that letter was signed by some smaller denominations, including the Church of the Brethren; the Global Ministries of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and United Church of Christ; the Mennonite Central Committee US; and the United Church of Christ, Justice and Witness Ministries.

        Reuters-Christians

        According to a Reuters report (“Religious groups push US to take in 100,000 Syrian refugees,” September 9, 2015), the Church World Service called on the government to take in 100,000 Syrians over the next year.

        According to US Census Data, the United States admits roughly 100,000 Muslim immigrants legally each year, representing the fastest growing block of immigration into the United States. Pew Research has estimated that immigration will cause the population of US Muslims to more than double over the next two decades—from 2.6 million in 2010 to 6.2 million in 2030.

        Every year the United Stated admits 70,000 “asylum seekers and refugees.” Arabic is the most common language spoken by “refugees“, and 91.4 percent of refugees from the Middle East are on food stamps.

        The Christian churches which support the continued influx of Muslims from the Middle East are therefore active participants in the genocide of European-Americans, and, ironically, also of the eradication of Christianity in the United States.

          Talk about taking the bitter for sweet, the sweet for bitter, good for evil and evil for good (Isaiah 5:20) but maybe these Christians spend more time w/the holey quranus than the bible.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            There are too many really stupid people who purport to be Christians, but are merely lemmings seeking like minded ignorance, to rationalize jumping off the cliff of insane islam.

          • Ichabod Crain

            This is the fault of the conspiracy of Western leadership in combination with the MSM to whitewash Islam. This is the fault of Obama’s personal campaign to sow disinformation about Islam. I have never seen such vast ignorance on a given subject in my life!

            If people know the facts and still want to help refugees, 97% of which are Muslim, that is their choice. There are also people out there with good and kind hearts who will help criminals when they leave jail and even during their stay. In this case, at least they know exactly who they are helping. Supposedly they also know the risks of recidivism. Many criminals go on to offend again. However, undoubtedly there are many who may be turned from the path of crime by kindness.

            In the case of the refugees, however, people are acting blindly. They have no clue what Islam is all about, and just assume it is like any other religion – like their religion, for example. They see pious Muslims, and think obviously they are pious people to be respected and even venerated. They haven’t a clue that pious Muslims are the most likely to commit, or at least support, jihad. They have no clue the warlord Muhammad is leading his followers to war against mankind.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            The ignorance of islam, coupled with the naive stupidity of well meaning but destructive Christians is a major problem. islam is violence, there is nothing human or compassionate in it. islam is criminally insane violence to begin with, then it gets worse.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            Muslums aren’t refugees. They’re the persecutors not the persecuted.

        • tatka150

          Mahou, thank you for the interesting information. But Jewish organizations in US do the same things helping the islamization of America. HIAS- Jewish International Organization helping refugees does the same thing. I’m Jewish- no offense to my brothers and sisters. It’s just unbelievable what these bleeding hearts do. It’s a joint suicide.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            islam has suckered in a lot of people, who should know better.

      • Mark Steiner

        What is more is these “refugees” or whatever they think they are, often display rank ingratitude to their “guests” in the matter of what food they will accept. Not unlike many spoiled-brat American children.

        • NoTreading

          That’s a severe understatement. However, if they weren’t forced upon us at our expense, it wouldn’t be an issue.

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    Sounds like the UMC has never heard/read the commandment to not lie or bear false witness. Then again maybe they’ve embraced the dishonesty that is sacralised in islam.

  • Drew the Infidel

    Nothing has been breathed about this on the local level but if and when it is I’ll be out of there so fast it will suck the windows out of the building.

  • Pam: I live in Waco and tried reading the subject UMC site. It was shut down because of “fraud” and other illegal activities. See http://www.bosquevillechurch.com/ This was the branch of UMC that Mr. Griffing reported on. Bosqueville is not in Waco, but a few miles from the city line.

  • bannedquran20

    Frances has the same mentality as those in this article. Loli!!! With that sadi, they should read quran and hadith since Jews and Christians are the enemies of islam. A few that stick out like the towers that were found on mars..quran 5:33, 9:5, 4:157, 5:47, 9:29, just to mention a few. Dodo Birds that they are neighbor.

  • christian vidal

    How utterly strong they despise and hate us, only the stupid leftists that are daily

    brainwashed by the enemedia and the educational system cannot understand this

    common sense, so ban all muzzies from the US shut down all mosques for ever. Don’t

    forget when the twin towers collapsed 1 billion of their kind were dancing and chanting in

    the streets worldwide. They are our deadliest enemies since the inception. Their only

    goal is the erasement of the western and jewish civilizations!

    These dhimmi-directed churches are making money off of these refugees: our tax dollars are liberally doled out to them.

  • chuck

    Wait a minute… the reason Missionaries came into existence was so that Christians could help needy people from around the world IN THEIR NATIVE LANDS. You don’t just bring all the needy foreigners here to the US, because in doing so, you put your family, you neighbors, and your community at risk. One must have priorities. Protect your loved ones first, then help others in need, in their home countries.

    It also affects the California-Pacific Conference section of the United Methodist Church where they train for blind acceptance of illegal aliens, including Muslim jihadis, as a social action as their replacement gospel, where lawbreakers are assisted in breaking the law and thus not “judged” and rendered assistance in law breaking with a “You are not alone” ministry effort that really has nothing to do with Jesus Christ, but rather is a cloak using His name for it.

    While it says in Exodus 22:21
    “Thou shalt neither vex a stranger, nor oppress him: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.” –
    exactly when does this mean we should go out of the way to break national laws and show them favoritism over our own?

    So what does in mean in Matthew Chapter 15 when the ff. happened with Jesus?
    21 “Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.

    22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil.

    23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us.

    24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

    25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.

    26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it to dogs.

    27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table.

    28 Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.”

    What is the lesson? The same as Donald Trump states…our nation first, then others after. We will not oppress with prejudice or hate, just withdraw ourselves and take care of our own first. Israel was oppressed in Egypt with being placed into one restricted region, and then with high interest financial slavery, often by their own, where generations after had to try and work off the parents and grandparents debts for feeding exceptionally large families. There is no Scripture that says we are to invite strangers, tell them our laws don’t apply to them, and use the excuse of going off on how cute their kids are in order to help justify teaching and rearing them up that it is spiritually and morally okay to be criminals among us…which is the fruit by-product of these socialists and communist-socialist unbelievers now in charge of the United Methodist Church perhaps 9 times out of 10 or more. They cite:

    Matthew 7:2 – For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

    and are oblivious that Jesus also CLARIFIED that with

    John 7:24 – Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
