Facebook’s favorite Christian Joshua Feuerstein doesn’t want you to know that the KKK is a Christian organization.

In a recent rant Feuerstein claimed that the KKK marching with white nationalists in Virginia are not really Christians because “racism is of the devil.”

Here’s the reality: [The marchers] are no more a Christian than I am a bodybuilder. You see, I can run around and say that I’m a bodybuilder, but if it’s just in word and not in deed, then it shouldn’t carry much weight.

… Stop calling these people Christians! The Bible explicitly says that if you claim to love God and hate your neighbor, you’re a liar! That’s why racism is of the devil, ladies and gentlemen.

Feuerstein is wrong. Racism is not of the devil. Indeed, historically, racism and white supremacy has been a central theme in American Christianity.

In fact, the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest Protestant body in the United States, was founded upon the notion that black slavery and white supremacy was integral to the Christian faith.

Bruce Gourley, writing at Civil War Baptists, notes:

From the advocacy of white supremacy and black slavery a new Baptist denomination was born. Foreshadowing the Civil War, white Baptists in the South withdrew fellowship from their northern counterparts on May 10, 1845, forming the Southern Baptist Convention in order to better defend the South’s practice of and dependency upon black slavery.

To their credit, the Southern Baptist Convention officially renounced their open racism and hostility towards black people in a statement titled “Resolution On Racial Reconciliation” issued in 1995 (Better late than never).

As for the KKK, they have always been a Christian organization. In fact, if you want to join the KKK, you must be a Christian. An in depth report from the Associated Press released last year notes:

Joining the Klan is as easy as filling out an online form – provided you’re white and Christian.

And this note from the website KKKKnights.com:

Our goal is to help restore America to a White Christian nation, founded on God’s word. This does not mean that we want to see anything bad happen to the darker races … we simply want to live separate from them … As GOD intended. (Lev.20:24-25)

While it is understandable why Christian apologists like Feuerstein would like to distance themselves from the morally reprehensible practice of racism in the name of Christianity, the fact remains that racism is embedded in the fabric of Christianity, and to say otherwise is to be dishonest.

To be sure, the reality is that most Christians today are not part of the KKK, and do not support the KKK. However, it is equally true that every member of the KKK is a Christian, and that racism and white supremacy is woven deep into the fabric of American Christianity.

Bottom line: Feuerstein is wrong. The KKK is, and always has been, a Christian organization.

Ammosexuals for Jesus: Facebook evangelist Josh Feuerstein says “the Second Amendment’s actually in the Bible.”

In an idiotic rant, Facebook’s favorite evangelist Josh Feuerstein explains that God really wants Christians to have guns so they can fill the bad guys with “freedom seeds.”

In his deranged rant Feuerstein declares:

… if some bad guy tries to do something, he’s gonna get filled full of a bunch of .45 caliber freedom seeds.

Now, for all of you people that are telling me, “Josh, I thought you were a Christian! Why are you condoning violence? I mean, why are you carrying a gun? How can you be pro-Second Amendment?”

Well, let me tell you, the Second Amendment’s actually in the Bible. Yeah. Think about it. Even God understood that He had to give His angels weapons because you don’t defeat evil with tolerance and understanding. So for all of you people that are saying we need peace, well peace only prevails when the good guy has the bigger weapons.

You’ve never seen a bully back down from some little scrawny kid that was defenseless, no. He pushes him around and takes his lunch money. But when you got a bigger guy, well, that bully leaves him alone. So what’s… seriously, guys. It’s time that we put veterans that are armed inside of schools to protect our children. Enough with gun control and gun free zones. We need more veterans in more schools protecting our children.


Feuerstein, the Facebook evangelist who once called on Christians to assassinate abortion providers, and asked his followers to boycott McDonald’s because a few of the fast food restaurants decided to add rainbow stripes to their french fry boxes to honor LGBT pride, has a history of uploading bizarre, pro-gun, pro-violence videos to his popular Facebook page.

Previously the Facebook evangelist urged Christians to take up arms so they could protect the police from “a godless and a disgusting generation.”

In addition, Feuerstein once issued a horrifying call to arms via Facebook, asking Christians to join him in fighting gay rights with guns. In a video rant Feuerstein can be seen brandishing a semiautomatic assault rifle and calling on his followers to fight for their supposed right to discriminate against LGBT people by invoking their Second Amendment right to bear arms.

Last year he led a social media campaign demanding that a Christian cross emoji be added to the list of possible Facebook reactions. That demand was denied.

However, Feuerstein is probably most famous for a viral Facebook post claiming that Starbucks removed Christmas from their cups “because they hate Jesus.”

Bottom line: Feuerstein is ignorant and confused. The Second Amendment is not in the Bible. Perhaps more important, Feuerstein’s consistent and obnoxious call for gun violence is not only an example of dangerous extremism, it ultimately mocks and belittles his Christian faith, and reflects the paradox of the perverse Christian ammosexual.

Christmas Panic: Fox News warns readers that the new holiday cups from Starbucks are promoting an anti-Christian, gay agenda.

A new report from Fox News suggests the new holiday cups from Starbucks actually feature a lesbian couple holding hands. Citing a BuzzFeed article, Fox reports:

The cups feature a busy print of holiday favorites like mittens, presents and Christmas trees, and above the logo, two unseen people are holding hands.

Since the cups launched in October, however, people have taken to Twitter with hypotheses that the androgynous hands may belong to a pair of lesbians.

A pair of Lesbians? The horror!

Jumping on the “gay agenda” band wagon, Glenn Beck’s socially conservative website The Blaze reports:

People are theorizing that the holiday design for Starbucks’ cups contain a hidden pro-gay message, and their official Twitter account appeared to confirm it.

As one might expect, some conservative Christians are expressing their alarm concerning the supposed gay agenda of Starbucks via social media. For example:

gabe

However, while some conservative Christians may lament the possibility that the new cups from Starbucks features lesbians holding hands, others on social media are celebrating:

This is not the first time conservative Christians have panicked over holiday cups from Starbucks. In 2015 many conservative Christians complained that Starbucks’ holiday cups were disrespecting Jesus.

At that time, Joshua Feuerstein, an obnoxious Internet evangelist, released a Facebook video claiming that Starbucks had removed “Christmas from their cups because they hate Jesus.” The post went viral, with over 13 million views.

As for the new 2017 cups, responding to BuzzFeed, Starbucks did not confirm or deny that the hands belonged to a same-sex couple. Instead, they issued the following statement:

Each year during the holidays we aim to bring our customers an experience that inspires the spirit of the season, and we will continue to embrace and welcome customers from all backgrounds and religions in our stores around the world.

In short, the new holiday cups from Starbucks are coming under fire “for possibly depicting the hands of a lesbian couple.”

Bottom line: It wouldn’t be Christmas without conservative Christians complaining about holiday cups from Starbucks, and the so-called “gay agenda” is always a good target for the folks at Fox News.

Despite desperate and angry demands from conservative Christians, Facebook will not be offering a Christian cross emoji.

HuffPost reports Facebook has no intention of acquiescing to demands made by angry  conservative Christians to add a Christian cross emoji. According to HuffPost, a Facebook spokesperson sent the publication an email explaining that the social media giant would not be adding a Christian cross emoji to their list of possible reactions, noting:

This reaction is not actually available on Facebook, and is not something we’re working on.

Angry conservative Christians have been demanding a Christian cross emoji because Facebook chose to honor LGBT Pride month by adding a rainbow flag emoji to the “thumbs up,” “heart sign,” “excited,” “shocked,’ “sad,” and “angry” emoji as a way to react on Facebook.

Many conservative Christians, unhappy that Facebook added a rainbow flag emoji to their list of possible post reactions, began a social media campaign to pressure Facebook into offering a Christian cross emoji.

In fact, Josh Feuerstein, Facebook’s favorite Christian, has been leading the social media campaign for a Christian cross emoji. An image he posted to Facebook and shared with his over 2 million followers went viral and has been widely circulated by angry conservative Christians feeling persecuted because Facebook recognized LGBT Pride.

Feuerstein, the Facebook evangelist who once called on Christians to assassinate abortion providers, recently asked his followers to boycott McDonald’s because a few of the fast food restaurants decided to add rainbow stripes to their french fry boxes to honor LGBT pride.

Previously the Facebook evangelist urged Christians to take up arms so they can protect the police from “a godless and a disgusting generation.”

In addition, Feuerstein once issued a horrifying call to arms via Facebook, asking Christians to join him in fighting gay rights with guns. In a video rant Feuerstein can be seen brandishing a semiautomatic assault rifle and calling on his followers to fight for their supposed right to discriminate against LGBT people by invoking their Second Amendment right to bear arms.

However, Feuerstein is probably most famous for a viral Facebook post claiming that Starbucks removed Christmas from their cups “because they hate Jesus.”

Bottom line: Conservative Christians demanded a Christian cross emoji be added to the list of possible Facebook reactions, and that demand was denied.

Rainbow rape? Rainbow rage: Angry Christian activist Linda Harvey wants to trademark the rainbow to prevent it from being raped by gays and lesbians.  

In a recent column for for WorldNetDaily Harvey wonders “Can we trademark the rainbow?” while complaining that the “sweet rainbow image” has been “violated” and “raped” by “homosexual sin”:

The sweet rainbow image has been violated, raped by the deluded and fraudulent, and it now serves too often as a garish signpost for slavery to grave homosexual sin. From shameful pride parades to hats, T-shirts, wristbands and buttons sold at Target or Walmart, sexual deviance is being colorfully and arrogantly proclaimed from America’s rooftops.

At once both ludicrous and malicious, a breathless Harvey continues her absurd, hate-filled, anti-gay rant:

It’s clear God did not intend for the rainbow to represent rebellion, iniquity and division. So how did this precious symbol become the banner, with few objections, for human depravity, lust, defiance and heresy?

Rainbow flags are flown in America from some government buildings, at some of our embassies, and these colors on several occasions even lit up our White House (under the former regime, thank God). From shameful pride parades to hats, T-shirts, wristbands and buttons sold at Target or Walmart, sexual deviance is being colorfully and arrogantly proclaimed from America’s rooftops.

And of course, it wouldn’t be a good Christian rant without the threat of an eternity in the bowels of Hell:

The rainbow’s current use by sexual anarchists turns hope into a license for sin. Rainbow-adorned clergy? You are in for some hot eternal times, unless repentance comes along soon.

Needless to say, Harvey is a dangerous Christian extremist who will demonize the LGBT community at every opportunity. She is a big believer in the supposed “gay agenda” and frequently claims that public schools “are training our children to become homosexuals.”

As for the rainbow, conservative Christians often express rage and frustration that the rainbow is now a symbol of pride for the LGBT community.

Earlier this month, after Facebook added rainbow flag emojis in honor of LGBT Pride month, some Christians expressed outrage, and some popular Facebook pages began banning anyone daring to use the rainbow flag emojis.

In another instance of “rainbow rage,” earlier this month, Facebook’s favorite Christian, Joshua Feuerstein, delivered an angry rant to his millions of followers because a few McDonald’s  restaurants decided to place rainbow stripes on their french fry boxes in honor LGBT Pride month.

Bottom line: Linda Harvey, dangerous Christian extremist, wants to trademark the rainbow because “the gays.”

Snowflake Alert: Facebook’s favorite Christian Joshua Feuerstein Is angry that McDonald’s will change their french fry boxes to rainbow stripes to honor LGBT pride.

Feuerstein, the Facebook evangelist who once called on Christians to assassinate abortion providers, is apoplectic with rage at McDonald’s modest nod towards the LGBT community. In a furious Facebook rant the former televangelist and pastor declared:

(DISGUSTING! McDonald’s released their RAINBOW FRIES today in honor of GAY PRIDE! Im tired of corporations trying to influence our families like this. SHARE THIS and let people know to STOP EATING at McDonalds! Plus, their food is crap. Really.)

What makes Feuerstein’s childish rant even more absurd is that only minutes before the conservative Christian shared a meme explaining that his page is not for those that are “easily offended and looking for a ‘safe space,’” telling them to “move along snowflake.”

(I love Jesus. I love America. I love guns. I love freedom. #DealWithIt)

Previously the Facebook evangelist urged Christians to take up arms so they can protect the police from “a godless and a disgusting generation.”

In the Facebook rant the controversial pastor promised to shoot anyone who threatened a police officer, and urged his fellow Christians to do the same.

As one might expect, the rant is a vile piece of propaganda, laced with racist innuendo: a dog whistle to white Christian supremacists everywhere, and a not so veiled threat to Black Lives Matter activists and anyone else concerned with the endless epidemic of police brutality aimed at the African American community.

In addition, Feuerstein once issued a horrifying call to arms via Facebook, asking Christians to join him in fighting gay rights with guns.

In a video rant Feuerstein can be seen brandishing a semiautomatic assault rifle and calling on his followers to fight for their supposed right to discriminate against LGBT people by invoking their Second Amendment right to bear arms.

However, Feuerstein is probably most famous for a viral Facebook post claiming that Starbucks removed “Christmas from their cups because they hate Jesus.”

Bottom line: Joshua Feuerstein – anti-gay, conservative Christian, hypocrite, special snowflake.

Unauthorized baptism results in death at Fort Campbell.

Staff Sergeant Marcus Rogers is under investigation after performing an unauthorized baptism on a government installation that apparently resulted in the death of Army Specialist Dhaifal Ali.

In addition to being a soldier, Rogers is a controversial social media figure with more than 400,000 followers on Facebook. Rogers uses his social media platform to preach a hateful and extreme Christian message that often disparages LGBT people and others who do not share his extreme views.

In his posts, Rogers often appears in uniform while preaching hate filled sermons directed at LGBT people, President Obama, and others. In one post Rogers declares:

Look at the gay people just trying to invade everything. The devil’s voice is loud and clear.

An Army spokesman said Rogers’ posts are not against policy despite his criticism of President Obama and rants against homosexuality.

However, despite the fact that Rogers often appears in uniform while delivering his social media sermons, he is in fact not a military chaplain, and is not authorized to perform baptisms on base.

After NewsChannel 5 Investigates reported on the military investigation into Ali’s death and Rogers role in that death, Popular Facebook evangelist Joshua Feuerstein called on Christians to harass the news station for reporting on the story.

… It’s NewsChannel 5, okay, that’s coming after this incredible young preacher of the Gospel for baptizing [Ali] and essentially, in their story, almost accusing him of murder. Now, I’m telling you, he needs your help… because NewsChannel5 needs to know they can’t run this kind of ridiculous story and expect to get away with it…

Feuerstein’s call for his followers to harass NewsChannel 5 should come as no surprise. Feuerstein has a history of making outrageous claims and accusations. In the past he has called for the assassination of abortion providers, claimed that Starbucks removed “Christmas from their cups because they hate Jesus,” claimed “Obama is Hitler,” asked Christians to fight same-sex marriage with guns, and blamed the “godless” for cop killings.

As for Rogers, he denies playing any role in Ali’s death, despite the fact that images of the baptism gone wrong have surfaced on social media.

When asked for comment, officials at Fort Campbell would only say that the circumstances surrounding Ali’s death are currently under investigation.

Joshua Feuerstein urges Christians to carry guns so they can protect cops from the godless.

The Facebook evangelist who once called on Christians to assassinate abortion providers is now urging Christians to take up arms so they can protect the police from “a godless and a disgusting generation.”

In a recent Facebook rant the controversial pastor promised to shoot anyone who threatened a police officer, and urged his fellow Christians to do the same.

As one might expect, the rant is a vile piece of propaganda, laced with racist innuendo: a dog whistle to white Christian supremacists everywhere, and a not so veiled threat to Black Lives Matter activists and anyone else concerned with the endless epidemic of police brutality aimed at the African American community.

The following is an excerpt from Feuerstein’s rant:

… You want to know what the problem is, is that we have this movement in America that is absolutely degrading the lives of good police officers. And… I was raised in a home where we respected police…

Today, we’ve got kids that are growing up in these different homes where the parents are not respecting police or cussing them out and callin’ ’em pigs, telling kids not to trust ’em. That’s the problem!

We’re fostering a generation of people who no longer have respect for authority. It’s a godless and a disgusting generation.

Look, I’m calling on every American citizen — I love Jesus. I love Jesus. I’m a preacher, but you know what? I also carry an FN Five-seven. Filled with 20 rounds of pure brutality right there.

Look. I may love Jesus but if I see you pull a gun on an officer, you want to know whose side I’m on? That’s right. I’m gonna fill you with 60 rounds of pure lead. And I guarantee you you’re gonna have lead poisoning.

Look guys, it’s time that we as Americans, we as Christians — we’ve gotta start carrying guns. Because we gotta protect our superheroes.

Because nothing says “I love Jesus” like the phrase: “I’m gonna fill you with 60 rounds of pure lead.”

Feuerstein is a dangerous and irresponsible provocateur making threats in the name of Jesus. Insinuating that “the godless,” or Black Lives Matter activists are responsible for gun violence in general, or the recent assault on police officers in particular, is ludicrous.  

It would be nice to be able to dismiss this loudmouth blowhard as an irrelevant crank, not worthy of attention. However, the fact that his video has received over 5 million views indicates otherwise.

Bottom line: By urging Christians to arm themselves Feuerstein only contributes to the problem of gun violence in America.

Prominent pro-life (forced birth) attorney Thomas W. Condit calls for the execution of abortion providers in front of a crowd of anti-abortion fanatics.

Speaking at a rally held outside of a Cincinnati Planned Parenthood center last Summer Condit declares:

We need to have an American version of the Nuremberg trials for crimes against humanity.

The people who work here, the people who work in abortion clinics around the country, we should get them when they wake up in the morning [so that] they are seeing visions of abortionists, the doctors, the clinic workers, the clinic directors, their lawyers, hanging by their necks after a fair trial.

We need to recapture the Faith by using the right words and I am here to tell you the right words. These people (abortion providers) are contract killers.

The well attended rally was held on July 28 as part of a nationwide anti-Planned Parenthood campaign called “Women Betrayed.”

Ohio State Representative Tom Brinkman (R-District 27) also spoke at the rally, and listened to the call for execution of abortion providers, as did more than a half-dozen priests, according to the Catholic Telegraph.

In the video Reverend Michael Bray, who was convicted in 1985 on conspiracy charges related to the bombing of several abortion clinics in the greater D.C. area, can be heard shouting his approval at the thought of executing abortion providers:

Yeah! Hang ’em! They will burn!

Bray is also the one filming Condit’s remarks. On his personal website, Bray boasts of having “spent four years in federal prison in connection with the destruction of several abortion facilities;” and of his 1994 book, A time to kill: A study concerning the use of force and abortion, which he describes as “an ethical treatise on the use of force in defense of the child in the womb.”

Indeed, the call to kill abortion providers is becoming a frequent refrain from radicalized conservative Christians. Late last month video surfaced of popular Facebook evangelist Joshua Feuerstein calling on Christians to “punish Planned Parenthood” and assassinate abortion providers.

Recently Planned Parenthood has been the victim of a well financed and cynical campaign to smear the organization dedicated to healthy family planning and women’s reproductive health.

The Center for Medical Progress, a front for radical, anti-abortion, forced-birth extremists, has been running a highly orchestrated campaign to discredit Planned Parenthood and ultimately undermine legal and safe abortion.

Ultimately, those dishonest videos, along with the vitriolic and outrageous rhetoric from supposed “pro-life,” forced birth fanatics like Condit and others, were a call to action, and an incitement to violence. A call apparently answered by a Christian terrorist named Robert Lewis Dear at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs.

Bottom line: If you call for the execution of any human being, you are not “pro-life,” but you just might be a dangerous religious extremist.

Concerned citizens call for the arrest and prosecution of popular Facebook evangelist Joshua Feuerstein after the former pastor called on Christians to assassinate abortion providers.

After a bombshell report showing the obnoxious but popular Christian evangelist Joshua Feuerstein calling on fellow Christians to  “punish Planned Parenthood” and make abortion providers fear for their life, some outraged citizens have been calling for the arrest and prosecution of Feuerstein.

Currently there is a Whitehouse.gov petition asking the Obama administration to prosecute Feuerstein for attempting to incite violence, as well as another petition at change.org asking U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch to arrest Feuerstein.

In addition, there have been myriad social media calls for Feuerstein’s arrest and prosecution, including a viral video from popular atheist vlogger Dusty Smith at the Cult of Dusty that has been viewed over 250,000 times.

As for Feuerstein, his first response was to delete the video evidence from his Facebook page in a pathetic attempt to destroy the evidence. However, the Internet does not forget, and multiple copies of the video were mirrored on YouTube.

In an attempt at damage control, Feuerstein then released another video denying he was really calling for the assassination of abortion providers, claiming the video being shared was highly edited and taken out of context. In the video Feuerstein insists his call to action was meant as “irony” and not to be taken literally.

For the sake of clarity, both the edited video, and the full video, can be viewed below. First the full video:

https://youtu.be/aursnJkrvsg

So let me get this right. Tonight, America is crying about an old lion named Cecil that was killed by some dipwad who cut his head off and left his body there. But check this out.

Planned Parenthood has hunted down millions and millions of little innocent babies, stuck a knife into the uterus, cut them, pulled them out, crushed their skull with forceps, ripped their body apart, sold their tissue, and threw them bleeding into a trash bin.

You guys are crying about a lion, but what about the babies? You know what I call that? I call that being a hypocrite.

I say, tonight, we punish Planned Parenthood. I think it’s time that abortion doctors should have to run and hide and be afraid for their life.

Instead of some hunter.

Both are wrong. But one is a lion. The other are humans. Stand up for humans.

And now the edited video:

https://youtu.be/7YlDK_rT5XQ

Planned Parenthood has hunted down millions and millions of little innocent babies, stuck a knife into the uterus, cut them, pulled them out, crushed their skull with forceps, ripped their body apart, sold their tissue, and threw them bleeding into a trash bin.

I say, tonight, we punish Planned Parenthood. I think it’s time that abortion doctors should have to run and hide and be afraid for their life.

Despite Feuerstein’s claims to the contrary,  both videos share the same message. In both videos Feuerstein calls on Christians to “punish Planned Parenthood” and make abortion providers fear for their life.

As Hemant Mehta writing at Friendly Atheist points out, the shorter, edited clip merely removed the parts about Cecil the lion; it didn’t twist Feuerstein’s words in any way. Feuerstein was still calling for his followers to go after abortion doctors.

As for the possibility of arresting and prosecuting Feuerstein, Ken White writing at Popehat says there is little chance that Feuerstein will face any legal consequences for his dangerous call to action. White notes:

… absent evidence that Feuerstein’s video actually led to violence, or absent very strong evidence that the video was made in circumstances where listeners were standing by ready to commit immediate violence, it is probably not unlawful incitement outside the protection of the First Amendment.

I wouldn’t blame anyone who felt frightened by Feuerstein’s video, especially if they worked for Planned Parenthood. I think he’s at best indifferent to the impact of his words. I suspect he meant to cause fear and is simply too much of a craven to admit it now. But the First Amendment provides a rather wide and robust buffer zone for speech that winds up protecting a lot of despicable behavior. Some people will always cavort in the margins.

White is probably right. It is doubtful Feuerstein will face any legal consequences for his dangerous hate speech because the First Amendment provides protections for the worst among us, even Feuerstein.

Make no mistake, there is a real dilemma here – Feuerstein’s call to assassinate abortion providers is deeply disturbing; yet free speech is precious, and the call to punish speech can lead down a slippery slope with unintended and disastrous consequences.

Besides, Feuerstein is only a symptom of the problem – the real problem is Feuerstein’s 1.8 million followers, and the legions of other Christians who endorse the dangerous and hateful religious rhetoric Feuerstein and Christians like him preach.

Bottom line: Sometimes sunshine is the best disinfectant. Exposing the dangerous rhetoric of Christian extremists like Feuerstein to the sweet light of reason may be the best course of action in the fight against religious extremism.
