Pamela Gellar" Atlas Shrugs" :Erroneously & Shamelessly Accuses Islam For The Holocaust & 1400 Years Of Western Anti-Semitism

Updated & Re-Edited 3:50 PM & 5:32 & 10:12 PM Oct.13 2009- Blaming Islam for the Holocaust/Shoah and for 2000 years of Christian & European anti-Semitism is a bit of a stretch - it is just another attempt at re-writing European and American history to cover-up the rabid anti-Semitism of Christianity.

Rifqa Bary as Little Red Riding Hood Besieged by Wolves as Pamela Gellar at Atlas Shrugs uses the dubious narrative of Rifqa Bary as the New Esther /Prophet being victimized by Muslim-Americans, the police, the US government and President Obama as all part of a World Wide Conspiracy to make America into a Muslim /Islamic Nation BULL-Pucky as hateful misleading lies and propaganda as that of the notorious fraud The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion- This is Hate Speech which could incite violence and yet liberals and Progressives and the Obama administration and people like Maddow and Olbermann have been silent. They should be pursuing the story to discern the truth whatever it may actually be.

Hitler & The Mufti Ultarightists such as Pamela Gellar at Atlas Shrugs blames Islam and Muslims for the Holocaust and for the history of anti-Semitism thoughout Western Civilization and the world was accordingly the Brain-Child of Muhammad in 632AD. What a load of BS nonsense -at one fell stroke Pamela Gellar condemns Islam and all Muslims as being Anti-Semitic, anti-Christian anti-Western Civilization while now revising all of Western Christian history removing the stain of anti-Semitism from Christianity and Christians - This cannot Stand without a response!!!

Anti-Semitism existed before the religion of Islam was founded by the Prophet Muhammad and the writing of the Qu'ran. As we seein this quote below by Vexen Crabtree:

Anti-Semitism: 2000 Years of Christian Love"By Vexen Crabtree 2004 Oct 06

Romans Judaism and Christians

3. BCE to 4th Century: The Roman Empire Tolerated Jews Until Christianity Arose

The Roman way was tolerance. They allowed religious groups to order their own internal affairs according to their own religious rules. They allowed most religions to exist alongside each other, with the Emperors having various religious affiliations. Sometimes certain cults and sects were suppressed, sometimes bloodily and violently, but historically there was no other empire so tolerant and accepting of a multitude of religious beliefs as under Roman rule.

As Jewish Christianity arose within Judea, inside the Roman Empire, its fundamentally Jewish beliefs combined with pagan sun worshipping religions such as Mithraism and other Roman influences. Pauline Christianity, which is the Christianity we know, was very similar to Judaism and the original Gnostic Christianity. It was these two close neighbours that Christianity first came to view as its two greatest competitors and enemies; all three had similar beliefs, all three competed for the same types of religious convert. But gnostic Christianity and the priestly castes of Judaism were both peaceful. Pauline Christianity was bloodthirsty.

“After the first century, Christianity also crystallized, and the relations of Judaism and Christianity were wholly hostile and external; as we shall see, Christianity powerfully stimulated anti-Semitism. Throughout the Middle Ages, Jews had no part in the culture of Christian countries, and were too severely persecuted to be able to make contributions to civilisation [...]. It was only among the Muhammedans, at that period, that Jews were treated humanely, and were able to pursue philosophy.”

"History of Western Philosophy" by Bertrand Russell (1946)4

"Within only a few decades of the Crucifixion, many converts to Christianity had already chosen to forget that the four evangelists, the twelve apostles and even Christ himself had been devout and practising Jews", "All that was well done in the Old Testament or that might be interpreted as proof of Messianic authority, the Christians claimed for themselves; the failures and denunciations they allotted to the Jews". The Jews saw the plundering and abuse of their own holy texts and themselves wrote on the life of Jesus. "Christian writers retaliated with hideous accounts of Jewish depravity". "It is here, in the rantings of the early Church Fathers against the Jews, that the first fertile seeds lie buried in the hysterical anti-semitism that was to become so rampant in the Middle Ages.". Quotes taken from "The Medieval Underworld" by Andrew McCall (1979)5.

Even before the Church was the official religion of the Roman Empire, when it was still autonomous, it was producing official anti-Judaism legislation. For example in 306CE "The church Synod of Elvira banned marriages, sexual intercourse and community contacts between Christians and Jews"6.

The aggressive Pauline Christianity gained the upper hand in the 4th century. The Roman Empire became a Christian Empire and under Emperor Constantine from the 4th century "theological diatribes" against the Jews began to appear in law. The first bloodshed was the finalisation of the slaughter of all the gnostics and the destruction and oppression of Judaism. The Roman Empire, once a multicultural tolerant nation became a theocracy ruled by Christian intolerance; and this influence spread through the Roman Empire to all of the Western world. Where Christianity had a stronger foothold, the Jews and non-Christians were persecuted and slaughtered more mercilessly than at any other time.

Due to this "religious fanaticism of such intensity" Jews were forced to live separately, were striped of wealth, belongings and all rights, they were reduced to slavery, ceremonially and regularly dehumanized, scapegoated, humiliated and slaughtered by Christian powers. This intolerance combined with complete enforced ignorance and superstition in all areas of life, resulted in the Dark Ages; that period in the Middle Ages when all of Europe was under the brooding, monstrous shadow of a bloodthirsty, out-of-control, corrupt Christian Church ruled from Rome. Roman Catholicism became most successful and bloodthirsty religion the world has ever known.

“Mixed marriages between Jews and Christians were punished by death. In the Codex Thedosians of the Emperor Theodosius II (408-450), the Jews were forbidden to hold any public office or function or to build new synagogues. Justinian completed this process of discrimination against the Jews in the 6th century by outlawing them altogether with all pagans and 'heretics'.”

Ayn Rand and Fascism
"Objectivism and Libertarianism owe a great deal to the writings of Ayn Rand and both are typically associated with belief in expansive degrees of personal liberty. It is arguable, though, that Ayn Rand's writings exhibit a disturbing fascination of and interest in more fascist attitudes towards humanity and human social relations.
Johann Hari writes:

She explained her philosophy at first through pot-boilers like ‘The Fountainhead’. One of her heroes boasts that he is the polar opposite of Robin Hood: “He was the man who robbed the rich and gave to the poor. I’m the man who robs the poor and gives to the rich, or to be more exact, the man who robs the thieving poor and gives back to the productive rich.” If you want a sign of Rand’s quiet victory, close your eyes and realize this could be Dick Cheney in one of his more candid moments, explaining the logic behind his massive tax cuts for the wealthy.

Rand’s morality was a perfect fit for the age of the celebrity billionaire. She conjures a world where the CEO is Messiah, where the sign of the Cross is replaced with the sign of the dollar, and where hideous penis-proxies like Trump Towers are the pinnacle of human achievement. In her novel ‘Atlas Shrugged’, the world’s billionaires – the Ted Turners and Donald Trumps – go on strike in protest against the “insane regulations” and “exorbitant tax” handed down from Washington D.C. The country quickly regresses into anarchy, with businesses collapsing, food distribution networks falling apart, and America becoming a wasteland – until finally the grateful populace welcomes back their economic Overlords and promises to never again pester them with wild notions like taxation or regulation.


Whittaker Chambers famously wrote in the National Review, “Just as her operatic businessmen are, in fact, Nietzschean supermen, so her ulcerous leftists are Nietzsche’s ‘last men’, both deformed in a way to sicken the fastidious recluse of Sils Marnia… [In her vision] resistance to the Message cannot be tolerated because disagreement can never be merely honest, prudent, or just humanly fallible. Dissent from revelation so final can only be willfully wicked. There are ways of dealing with such wickedness, and , in fact, reason itself enjoins them. From almost every page of Atlas Shrugged, a voice can be heard, from painful necessity, commanding, “To a gas chamber – go!””...

I was trying to keep this post short and then I came across more anti-Islamic hyping and hysteria at Pam Gellar's Ultrarightist Ayn Rand site Atlas Shrugs. What is scary is the agenda being pursued by Pamela Gellar and other ultrarightists and their Fellow Travelers the Religious Right are they hoping there will be more anti-Muslim activities in America are they hoping for new laws to restrict the freedoms of Muslims in America or do they hope to stir up enough hate to lead to Pogroms against Muslims and then who will they go after that -liberals, secular humanists, atheists, Hindus, Buddhists, Taoist, Neo-Pagans

Atlas Shugs Pam Gellar Islam & anti-Semitism-
Pamela Gellar at Atlas Shrugs shamelessly claims that for the most part anti-Semitism was a foreign notion to Christianity or to Western Civilization.

Is she claiming that Martin Luther's rabid anti-Semitism for instance can be attributed to the influence of Islam.

For instance: "Martin Luther: The Jews and Their Lies (1543)"at Jewish Virtual Library or is Pamela Gellar going to claim that this Jewish history site or the Nizkor Project sites and others are anti-Christian and are deliberately downplaying Islamic Anti-Semitism and therefore purposely distorting history and claiming Christian anti-Semitism and Martin Luther's rabid anti-Semitism in which he called Jewish Syagogues The Synagogues of Satan is either a made up lie.

Is she claiming that Martin Luther was influenced somehow in his anti-Semitism by Islam. as Martin Luther wrote
in his own anti-Semitic tirade of hate The Jews and Their Lies(1543) as we see below:

At the beginning of his career, Luther was apparently sympathetic to Jewish resistance to the Catholic Church. He wrote, early in his career:

The Jews are blood-relations of our Lord; if it were proper to boast of flesh and blood, the Jews belong more to Christ than we. I beg, therefore, my dear Papist, if you become tired of abusing me as a heretic, that you begin to revile me as a Jew.

But Luther expected them to convert to his purified Christianity. When they did not, he turned violently against Jews.

It is impossible for modern people to read the horrible passages below and not to think of the burning of synagogues in November 1938 on Kristallnacht. Nor would one wish to excuse Luther for this text.

A number of points must, however, be made. The most important concerns the language used. Luther used violent and vulgar language throughout his career....We do not expect religious figures to use this sort of language in the modern world, but it was not uncommon in the early 16th century. Second, although Luther's comments seem to be proto-Nazi, they are better seen as part of tradition of Medieval Christian anti-Semitism. While there is little doubt that Christian anti-Semitism laid the social and cultural basis for modern anti-Semitism, modern anti-Semitism does differ in being based on pseudo-scientific notions of race. The Nazis imprisoned and killed Jews who had converted to Christianity: Luther would have welcomed them.

None of this justifies what follows, but it may help to comprehend what is happening. In 1994, the Church Council of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America rejected Luther's anti-Semitic writings.

Martin Luther: The Jews and Their Lies

...I had made up my mind to write no more either about the Jews or against them. But since I learned that these miserable and accursed people do not cease to lure to themselves even us, that is, the Christians, I have published this little book, so that I might be found among those who opposed such poisonous activities of the Jews who warned the Christians to be on their guard against them. I would not have believed that a Christian could be duped by the Jews into taking their exile and wretchedness upon himself. However, the devil is the god of the world, and wherever God's word is absent he has an easy task, not only with the weak but also with the strong. May God help us. Amen.

He did not call them Abraham's children, but a "brood of vipers" [Matt. 3:7]. Oh, that was too insulting for the noble blood and race of Israel, and they declared, "He has a demon' [Matt 11:18]. Our Lord also calls them a "brood of vipers"; furthermore in John 8 [:39,44] he states: "If you were Abraham's children ye would do what Abraham did.... You are of your father the devil. It was intolerable to them to hear that they were not Abraham's but the devil's children, nor can they bear to hear this today.

...Therefore the blind Jews are truly stupid fools...

...Now just behold these miserable, blind, and senseless people.

...their blindness and arrogance are as solid as an iron mountain.

Learn from this, dear Christian, what you are doing if you permit the blind Jews to mislead you. Then the saying will truly apply, "When a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into the pit" [cf. Luke 6:39]. You cannot learn anything from them except how to misunderstand the divine commandments...
Therefore be on your guard against the Jews, knowing that wherever they have their synagogues, nothing is found but a den of devils in which sheer self­glory, conceit, lies, blasphemy, and defaming of God and men are practiced most maliciously and veheming his eyes on them.
Moreover, they are nothing but thieves and robbers who daily eat no morsel and wear no thread of clothing which they have not stolen and pilfered from us by means of their accursed usury. Thus they live from day to day, together with wife and child, by theft and robbery, as arch­thieves and robbers, in the most impenitent security.
However, they have not acquired a perfect mastery of the art of lying; they lie so clumsily and ineptly that anyone who is just a little observant can easily detect it. But for us Christians they stand as a terrifying example of God's wrath."

Pamela Gellar and other ultrarightists have created out of their fertile paranoid fantasies and delusions a pernicious revisionist history in which Islam was and is antiSemitic and it led to Hitler's Final Solution.

The problem with this even if one were to accept that Islam has an antiSemitic narrative Pamela Gellar and other conservatives and apologist for Christianity and Western Civilization downplay the rampant rabid anti-Semitism that was part of the very fabric of the Christian Church and the original Church fathers . But beyond this we can find anti-semitism being promulgated in the new testament itself.

Historically we know that Hitler was anti-Semitic from early on in his life and grew up in a culture and time in Europe in which anti-Semitism was promulgated by the Catholic Church and a number of Protestant Churches. To claim that anti-Semitism originated with Islam besieged a slight against Islam it is also a denial of the history of Western Civilization. Christians were promulgating anti-Semitism at least for two centuries before Muhammad was born.

Is Pamel Gellar insisting that Christians never preached anti-Semitism.

In the first Christian Crusade of 1097 the Christian Crusaders on their way to Palestine decided to purify Christendom by killing off tens of thousands of Jews in Northern Europe yet These Crusaders knew little or nothing about Islam or Muhammad.
The Church had preached for centuries that the Jewish people were responsible and had been cursed by God for the murder/Deicide of Jesus . This was inbred and embedded as part of Christian teachings up until after the Second World War.

If Pamela Gellar and others are right then why were so many nations in Europe and America along with Canada and nations in South America unwilling to take in first the German Jews who had their rights taken away by Hitler by 1937 and even after Kristallnacht Pogrom 1938 see: Prelude to Genocide at Holocaust Education & Archive Research Team and later as the "the Final Solution" began most Western Christian "Holier Than Thou" nations refused to take in large numbers of European and Eastern European Jews who were being slaughtered even before the first Gas Chambers went into operation in 1941.

Anti-Semitism was embedded in Western Civilization and at various times it had become a world-wide phenomenon , the paranoid delusions of Christians, Fascists and Communists .The Church told them that Islam was a religion which claimed Muhammad as God which it did not and that Jesus was not the Messiah or of any importance yet in the Quran Jesus is referred to as one of the prophets in the long line of prophets going back to at least Abraham and ending in their view not with Jesus but with Muhammad.

Muhammad called Christians and Jews the peoples of the book who should be treated more fairly and with more respect than the believers who's religious beliefs are outside of the Book (the Bible) This is not to say that there was no animosity towards Christians and Jews throughout the entire history of Islam. There were those who preached against Christians and Jews but these Islamic leaders were often considered fanatics by mainstream traditional Muslims. The traditional or acceptable view in Islam was to tolerate Christians and Jews yet not see them as equal to Muslims. So there were restrictions on the clothes and the size or height of Churches and Jewish Temples. In Christian lands in the middle east and into parts of Europe Muslims were either kept out of their countries or were tolerated yet treated not as equals. In Christendom Muslims and Jews had to wear distinct clothing , there were restrictions on their places of worship and the Call To Prayer was often forbidden.

The Mufti of Berlin: Arab-Nazi collaboration is a taboo topic in the West by Pam Gellar at Atlas Shrugs Oct.13, 2009

An exhibition in Berlin that cast light on the Muslim/Nazi collaboration during the holocaust was cancelled for fear of Islam. The publicly funded multicultural center in Berlin, "Werkstatt der Kulturen," is located in a heavily Turkish and Arab neighborhood.

Karl Rössel, the German journalist responsible for the exhibition, "The Third World in the Second World War", wonders "why the people who so one-sidedly regard Israel as the region's main problem never consider how the Mideast conflict would have developed had it not been influenced by fascists, anti-Semites and people who had just returned from their Nazi exile". I can assure Mr. Rössel that it would have turned out exactly the same. Read the Quran. Read Dr. Andrew Bostom's The Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism. Muslims were/are not inspired by Hitler and the Nazis. Hitler and the Nazis were inspired by Islam. I have written on this very thing extensively (here)

Hyping Hysteria over the Rifqa Bary conundrum Pamela Gellar and other ultrarightists and the Fanatical Religious Right using the Rifqa affair as part of their anti-Islam narrative in which Gellar and her bigoted audience blame all of the atrocities and evil in the History of Western Civilization if not the world on the religion of Islam .

The irony here is that Pamela Gellar and other s who demonize Islam use the very same tactics and appeal to a somewhat mythical all pervasive secret Islamic conspiracy to take over the world.

I guess Pamela Gellar even now believes that the notorious Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion was written by or at least inspired by secret Muslims working for the Russian secret police in 1905. The Protocols were the brainchild we know of the Russian secret police to influence the Tzar so he would be convinced that any and all demands for Political and social Reforms were being orchestrated by a secret cabal of Jewish leaders. Pam Gellar and other anti-Islamic Americans are now once again rewriting history to fit their newly conjured up narrative of Western Civilization and Christendom which has been besieged in one way or another since 632 AD that is the founding date of Islam by Muhammad.

Reckoning or Requiem for Rifqa? Hearing today decides her fate" Pamela Gellar at Atlas Shrugs Oct. 13, 2009
It is indicative of how hardwired for denial the media, Islamic apologists, and politicians are when a little girl, terrified of a certain fate, is forced to return to a life of abuse and terror. We hope it's denial, as any other motive would be too sinister to contemplate.

There is no question that the penalty for apostasy is death in Islam. There is no question that the Noor mosque is radical and frightfully extreme.

When the mosque warned Rifqa's father Mohamed that his daughter was a convert (after spying on her), he was told to "straighten her out or else". He threatened to kill her if "this Jesus is in your heart".

Today jurisdiction is decided. The question is, why send Rifqa back? The girl is terrified. if Islam were not involved, that in and of itself would be enough. Ohio is not safe. The home is not safe. As apostate Nonie Darwish explained at the Former Muslims United press conference, there is no way Rifqa can be free to love Jesus and practice Christianity in a devout Muslim home. The community in Ohio is not safe for her. Placing her in another foster care home in Ohio for 30 days accomplishes what exactly?

She will turn 18 next year. She is in America. Freedom from religious persecution is our unalienable right. Individual rights is our inalienable right.

Non-muslim countries worldwide understand the threat. It is incomprehensible that America would be behind the curve on individual rights.

The hearing is at 2:30 pm this afternoon. I am in Florida (just hit the tarmac). If I get a seat in the main hearing room, I cannot liveblog. Not to worry. I will take copious notes and transcribe what really happened, as I did here and here and here. The media accounts have not reflected what actually has happened.

They understand the threat in Europe, only too well.

Pamela Gellar and other ultrarightists who are fanatically anti-Islam want to appeal to the sentiments and prejudices of the Religious Right and the American populace in general to foment hatred and even violence against Islam and "liberal' or "Secular Humanists" who dare defend the majority of Muslims in America or elsewhere. What they would prefer is an all out war against Islam to destroy it once and for all. They uses hypedup rhetoric and half-truths invented tales of atrocities and the notion that all Muslims everylast one of them hates Christianity, the West and especially America since they know it is God's Chosen nation. They attack Islam as an evil Satanic Religion led by a "False Prophet" and deny the major role played by the Catholic Church and Protestant Churches in promulgating anti-Semitism.

Though the Catholic Church accepts some responsibility for anti-Semitism they then go onto say that Jews have brought much of this down on themselves for murdering Jesus and and for not seeing the light and converting to Christianity. So Jews still stand accused for rejecting Jesus and adhering to an anti-Christian doctrine. The point is the so called apology was not unequivocal and was rather ambiguous . Pastor John Hagee teaches that the Holocaust/Shoah was apunishment by God for refusing to become Christians and for refusing to return to Palsestine to rebuild the great Temple at Jerusalem. So God sent a hunter Adolph Hitler to hunt the Jews down and mass murder them . So Hagee continues to spread a virulent form of anti-Semitism while calling himself a Christian Zionist that is a supporter of the State Of Isreal but his support is not one of empathy or compassions but rather that Israel fits in with God's plan for theEnd-Times- the clock for the End-Times according to most Evangelical Fundamentalist Christians when Israel became a sovereign state-so this is all part of God's & Pastor Hagee's agenda. So it is in effect self-serving and not love for the Jewish people in fact in the end many Jews will convert to Christianity and the rest shall be slaughtered and sent to Hell .

"We would risk causing the victims of the most atrocious deaths to die again if we do not have an ardent desire for justice, if we do not commit ourselves to insure that evil does not prevail over good as it did for millions of children of the Jewish people...Humanity cannot permit all that to happen again." Pope John Paul II.

Discussing the Nazi Holocaust, Hans Küng -- once a leading Catholic theologian, but now banned from teaching by the Church -- wrote that "Nazi anti-Judaism was the work of godless, anti-Christian criminals. But it would not have been possible without the almost two thousand years' pre-history of 'Christian' anti-Judaism..." 2

Two Church teachings became the foundation stones for centuries of oppression of Jews by the Church:

Supercessionism (a.k.a. Replacement Theology): This is the belief that because most of the Jews in the first century CE did not adopt the teachings of Jesus, God rejected the Jews, unilaterally cancelled his covenants with them, and now favored Christians as his chosen people.
Transfer of sin: This is the belief that all Jews, from the first century onwards, are responsible for Jesus' execution circa 30 CE. This includes Jews who lived in the Roman Empire in the first century CE but had never heard of Jesus or of his teachings. It includes Jews who were born in the 19 centuries following Jesus' death.

Current teachings of the Roman Catholic Church:

As stated above, there were two beliefs of the Roman Catholic Church which formed the foundation for centuries of crimes against humanity, directed against the Jewish people. Both foundations have been abandoned:
bullet Supercessionism: This is the concept that, in the first century CE, God had rejected the Jews and revoked his covenants with them. The Church taught that God did this in response to the rejection of the Gospel by most Jews during Jesus' life and after his execution. Although many Jews formed the Jewish Christian movement centered in Jerusalem, most continued to favor the Torah and the religion of their ancestors, that God had called them to honor.

Under the topic "The Church and non-Christians," the Roman Catholic Catechism now acknowledges the special and irrevocable relationship between God and the Jewish people. 3 Section 839 states that Jews were "the first to hear the Word of God." The Jewish faith "is already a response to God's revelation...To the Jews 'belong the sonship, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises; to them belong the patriarchs, and of their race, according to the flesh, is the Christ...for the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable." [Emphasis ours].

However, the Catholic Church does not accept Judaism and Roman Catholicism as equal paths to salvation. They teach that only Catholics can be assured of salvation. A church document Dominus Iesus, states that members of other religions, including Judaism, are "gravely deficient" relative to members of the Church of Christ who already have direct access to "the fullness of the means of salvation." 4
bullet Translated responsibility: This was the principle that all Jews, from the first century onwards, share responsible for Jesus' execution. This concept was rejected by the church's Second Vatican Council during the 1960s. The Council's "Declaration on the relation of the Church to non-Christian religions: Nostra Aetate," states: "True, the Jewish authorities and those who followed their lead pressed for the death of Christ;...still, what happened in His passion cannot be charged against all the Jews, without distinction, then alive, nor against the Jews of today." 5

Unfortunately, this passage is followed by a statement that seems to suggest that belief in supercessionism is not quite dead in the Church: "Although the Church is the new people of God, the Jews should not be presented as rejected or accursed by God, as if this followed from the Holy Scriptures." [Emphasis ours].

Nostra Aetae continues with an unconditional denunciation on those who promote Antisemitism and persecutions of Jews, in unusually direct language: "Furthermore, in her rejection of every persecution against any man, the Church, mindful of the patrimony she shares with the Jews and moved not by political reasons but by the Gospel's spiritual love, decries hatred, persecutions, displays of anti-Semitism, directed against Jews at any time and by anyone."

Anyway it is unfortunate that so many Americans are so often heard quoting the Constitution claiming "all men are created equal" yet they like their European ancestors still believe that there is a class of men and women who are better than the rest and who are successful and wealthy because they are God's Chosen Ones -The Elect-

How I wonder is this any different than bowing down to Knights, Noblemen, Kings and Queens. So they replaced the old aristocracy with a new one . Is that why so many Americans are against giving any substantive aid to the poor or the mentally or physically disabled maybe they should all just be left to starve as John Hagee and the preachers of The Gospel Of Prosperity appear to believe.But these conservative Americans have edited out the Sermon on the mount and the hundreds of passages telling believers to look after the poor the sick the lame the widow orphans etc.

So these self-righteous Evangelicals instead of trying to create a more just society by fighting for instance so that all Americans get better health care or demanding more resources for the public school system instead of funneling the funds into home schooling , religious schools and the Charter Schools for the well to do. fighting to protect the Environment which they say was created by God and that man was to protect nature and use what he needed in a respectful manner instead they have sided with rapacious industries to destroy rather than protect. Ah well they will be upset if there is an after life and they discover God is an environmentalist.

In the 19th century it was the American Evangelicals who were at the forefront of various social and political movements to create a more just society -abolition, penal reform, child labor laws, public schools not just for the rich, better hospitals and improvements to mental asylums etc. & culminating at least with some Evangelicals and Baptists with the Civil Rights Movement of course when it came to desegregation the likes of Falwell & a host of others joined with The Mormons to fight against desegregation because they claimed the Bible supported slavery, lynching & segregation & Jim Crow & the KKK-as I have said before these are the things that really got these conservative Evangelicals and political conservatives such the John Birchers, Barry Goldwater, Governor Wallace ,& the cross-dressing J.Edgar Hoover , William F. Buckley all pissed off and .

So what do they see as important causes well for one thing they are in life and death struggle over the teaching of Darwin's Origins of Species and evolution . They want to turn back the clock to a time when the Earth was flat, that there were the celestial spheres to which the stars were hammered into place and witches and demons were the causes of the plagues and mental illness and cancer and solar eclipses & hurricanes & etc.
