Frank Schaeffer on the Evangelical cloak of the Republican Party

Radio host Peter B. Collins receives in this podcast Frank Schaeffer, ex-Evangelical leader for many years in the U.S.. Son of Reconstructionist preacher Francis Schaeffer, Frank has a lot to say about the links that exist between the Republican Party and the Evangelical movement. According to him, that movement has literally taken over the Party. It dictates its policies to the political establishment. Among the many representatives of this trend, Schaeffer mentions Michelle Bachmann who, apparently, is under the spell of the Evangelicals. He goes at length to explain how her politics are the expression of the Evangelical background that she has. Schaeffer also takes the opportunity to present certain parts of the material of his new book Sex, Mom and God,  and to talk about his father in relation with the Evangelical movement. Globally, I found this interview rather relevant. Having a master degree in Religious Studies, I am always curious about personal religious backgrounds, narratives and stories. Although I have got away from the religious scene for the most part, out of boringness and sometimes disgust and distrust, it is always interesting to see elements like that surging where you expect them the least.

I share a good part of the explanations presented by Frank Schaeffer here on this subject, but not totally. First of all, I am not sure that the Evangelical movement has taken over the Republican Party. I rather have the impression that it is the Republican Party that uses the Evangelical movement as a cloak to better hide its machinations. People with cash and power don’t have religious beliefs; if they really had, they probably wouldn’t be rich and powerful. The world is not run by religion; it is run by money and money gives power. I totally respect the opinion of somebody like Frank Schaeffer who survived the mind-control and brainwash environment of such a movement, but I think it is more accurate to think that the Evangelical movement is used as yet another tool, garment, cloak, etc, to engineer the American society and the whole world into a pre-determined totalitarian reactionary agenda. In numerous articles in the past, I have said, along with heroic researcher Dave Emory, that the Republican Party is fascist in nature, having among other things links to the Third Reich that go back to WWII.

Julia Davis and Steve Kohn on The Boiling Frogs: What whistleblowing truly is

That interview with Julia Davis gives cold shivers. While listening to it, you can’t help but to realize that the United States of America, once the greatest nation in the world, has regressed during the last decades into a republic that is clearly in the middle stages of totalitarianism. Several causes could be identified to explain this break down. Fascists of all kinds, post-WWII nazi agents acting to destabilize the country and have it to collapse, communist infiltraters, etc, all have contributed to this. However, one trail of enquiry that is rarely mentioned is the Vatican. To my knowledge, there is only Lenny Bloom with his radio podcast show Shock Talk With Bloom And Steele, and a few others, that talk about that. Washington D.C. holds a monument, called the Washington Monument, that is an egyptian obelisk. Yet, we find the same obelisk in the City of the Vatican, with surrounding buildings matching in style. Coincidence? Maybe. Listen folks. You have to realize that the Roman Catholic Church never cancelled or abandoned the Inquisition, nor the Crusades by the way. It has merely changed its name. It is now called the « Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith ». So what tells us that they are not now acting to destabilize democracy itself in western countries, because their populations have turned their backs on the Christian and/or Catholic Faith? I think this question needs to be asked. Signs of a global covert operation to destabilize democracy are all over the place on Earth, in Europe, in the United States, in Latin America, around Israel — which has not been officially recognized by the Vatican yet, by the way. Don’t forget that the four books of the gospels put the blame on the Jews for the murder of Jesus, while it is evident that it was the Romans who killed him, because he was a pretender to the Throne of David, a competitor to the Cesars.
