Here in America we call this freedom of speech, religion and the freedom to assemble peaceably. While we still can, we also have the freedom to call those pictured above what we consider them to be...traitors and lackeys for the illegitimate state of Israel. Mouthpieces for wars for Israel and disseminators of bizarre religious doctrines.
In America people have the right to be deceived and even to repeat their deceptions to as many who will listen. Apparently there is also the right to lie and be paid to lie to further an agenda. Many of those pictured are paid professional liars.
Freedom of religion means that one can call themselves a preacher, a pastor or a theologian and stand up and say the most illogical and absurd things and then pass the hat for donations. Here are a couple of examples from CUFI...
"Genesis 12:3 mandates that those who bless Israel will be blessed, but the entire Bible is a Zionist document. During this panel Christian leaders will discuss God's commandment that we stand with Israel and His everlasting relationship with His chosen people."
and...Proclamations like these should be going into the dust bin of history's trash talk but unfortunately for many people they become legitimate because of the perception that those speaking them have authority, have standing and have the truth. The truth is that they only have madness.
"Iran is the world's leading sponsor of terror."
Lest we forget, Netanyahu also has said...
"I know what America is. America is a thing you can move very easily, move it in the right direction. They won’t get in their way.”
On the proper way to deal with the Palestinians: "beat them up, not once but repeatedly, beat them up so it hurts so badly, until it's unbearable".
In the immediate wake of 9-11, the New York Times’ James Bennett asked Netanyahu what the attacks would mean for Israel’s relations with the United States. “It’s very good,” Bibi replied before quickly correcting himself. ”Well, not very good, but it will generate immediate sympathy.”
In a world where discernment and sensibilities prevailed, the ravings of these lunatics would be ignored and laughed at. That's not exactly what we have. These religious 'leaders', politicians and media propagandists are dangerous, not only to our own country but to the world. We can't look the other way and hope that they will disappear.
We can boycott, divest and support sanctions against Israel (BDS). We can walk away from liars and deceivers. We can try to educate others. We can refuse to enter into a relationship with churches and organizations whose message is not one of peace and who literally worship the tribe of the 'chosen ones' including all of their criminal elements.
We can approve of the notion of Eretz Yisrael, World War III and crimes against humanity in the name of God. Fallacies of epic proportion.
No, we reject those fallacies emphatically.
Yes, we are as opinionated as the CUFI crowd. We just don't have the mass media to talk our opinions up, few politicians attempting to stop the foreign influence and our collection plate is empty.
Heart...maybe that's all we have left...maybe
