George W. Bush has been only the most
recent world leader who has
used religious factions to gain support for his policies and objectives.
“National Socialism was a religion,” noted Professor
George Lachmann Mosse
of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, whose wealthy Jewish family fled
Germany in 1933.
“The depth of the ideology, the liturgy, the element of
hope, all helped to give the movement the character of a new faith. It has
been shown that [Nazi propaganda minister Paul Joseph] Goebbels quite
consciously used religious terminology in many of his speeches. Moreover,
Nazism was a total worldview which by its very nature excluded all others.
From this it followed that traditional Christianity was a rival, not a
friend. But here Hitler at first went very slowly indeed, for he needed (and
got) the support of the majority of the Christian churches.”
Mosse concluded that,
“the Nazi future would have lain with the Evangelical
Christians had the war been won.”
In Mein Kampf, Hitler spoke condescendingly of religion, offering this
rationalization for organized religion.
“The great masses of people do not
consist of philosophers, and it is just for them that faith is frequently
the sole basis of a moral view of life.”
He also saw in Christian fundamentalism a reflection of his own National Socialist zeal and ambition.
“The greatness of Christianity was not
rooted in its attempted negotiations of compromise with perhaps similarly constructed philosophical opinions of the old world,” he wrote, “but
in the inexorably fanatical preaching and representation of its own doctrine.”
Despite this public support for religion, Hitler, who, as has been
was surrounded by occultism, privately expressed disdain for formal religions, as evidenced by this discourse related in Hitler’s
An educated man retains the sense of the mysteries of nature and bows before
the unknowable. An uneducated man, on the other hand, runs the risk of going
over to atheism (which is a return to the state of the animal) as soon as he
perceives that the state, in sheer opportunism, is making use of false ideas
in the matter of religion, while in other fields it bases everything on pure
That’s why I’ve always kept the Party aloof from religious
questions. I’ve thus prevented my Catholic and Protestant supporters from
forming groups against one another, and inadvertently knocking each other
out with the Bible and the sprinkler.
So we never became involved with these
churches’ forms of worship... In any case, the main thing is to be clever in
this matter and not to look for a struggle where it can be avoided... So
it’s not opportune to hurl ourselves now into a struggle with the

Religion will have to make more and more concessions. Gradually the
myths crumble. All that’s left is to prove that in nature there is no
frontier between the organic and the inorganic. When understanding of the
universe has become widespread, when the majority of men know that the stars
are not sources of light but worlds, perhaps inhabited worlds like ours,
then the Christian doctrine will be convicted of absurdity.
religion was merely a prop for human communities. It was a means, not an end
in itself. It’s only gradually that it became transformed in this direction,
with the object of maintaining the rule of the priests, who can live only to
the detriment of society collectively.
Hitler’s thoughts were echoed by his deputy Martin Bormann, who flatly
stated in a 1942 German Evangelical Church yearbook:
“National Socialist and
Christian concepts are incompatible.”
Because of his private opposition to true Christianity, Hitler quickly took
steps to subdue the church. On July 23, 1933, just six months after he came
to power, a Nazi-dominated National Synod in Wittenberg named a former
German Army chaplain and virulent anti-Semite, Ludwig Mueller, as Reich
Six months later, Mueller issued what came to be known as the
“Muzzling Order,” a decree designed to bring control over the German
Evangelical Church. Ministers were forbidden to speak about controversial or
political matters; hence there could be no opposition to the Nazi regime.
Mueller proclaimed that church services were “for the proclamation of the
pure Gospel, and for this alone.” This same no-involvement-with-politics
message can be heard in many churches in America today.
Despite Nazi hostility to Christianity and thanks to Goebbels’s propaganda,
many Germans believed that Hitler was heaven-sent.
A Cologne children’s
“Fuehrer, my fuehrer, bequeathed to me by the Lord.”
the notable exception of some anti-Nazi clerics such as Pastors Martin Niemoeller and the martyred
Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the German congregations
all fell into lockstep with the Nazi government.
Many churchgoers were
zealous Nazis, but many were simply hesitant or afraid to speak up against
their noisy fellow members.
“We will discover that the Nazi era shouts its lessons to the church of
America,” concluded the Reverend Erwin W. Lutzer, senior pastor of Moody
Church in Chicago, who made a detailed study of the National Socialists’
seduction of German Christians.
“It warns us, challenges us, and
forecasts what might happen in the days ahead. Whether we heed its warnings,
accept its challenges, and recognize its subtle deceptions is up to us.”
Germany in the 1930s was a predominantly religious nation with the majority
divided between Catholics and Lutherans.
The fascist globalists realized
that the multisectarian United States could not be brought under one
religious control system. Through their corporate control over the large
media outlets, these would-be global rulers have instituted a decades-long
campaign to undermine and discredit organized religion, regardless of
denomination. Some wayward TV evangelists and Catholic priests have only
exacerbated this campaign.
There also appears to be a movement to control the church’s message in the
campaign for the 2008 election.
According to a June 2007 CNN press release,
the TV network,
“will serve as the exclusive broadcaster of a presidential
candidate forum on faith, values and politics during the Sojourners
‘Pentecost 2007’ conference in Washington, D.C.
The Rev. Jim Wallis of
Sojourners and author of the best-selling book God’s Politics: Why the Right
Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesn’t Get It, has invited Democratic
presidential candidates Sen. Hillary Clinton, Sen. John Edwards and Sen. Barack Obama to share their ideas and proposals about pressing social issues
with a special emphasis on poverty.”
Soledad O’Brien, a CNN anchor and
correspondent, was asked to moderate the forum.
Jim Wallis in 1971 founded Sojourners, an organization that wishes,
articulate the biblical call to social justice, inspiring hope and building
a movement to transform individuals, communities, the church, and the
Detractors accuse Wallis of attempting to divide evangelical
Christians to the benefit of secular liberals. In an open letter, William
J. Anderson, a teacher of economics at Maryland’s Frostburg State
University, accused Wallis of serving as a leftist political operative for
the 2004 presidential campaign of John Kerry.
“I am familiar
enough with you [Wallis] and Sojourners to know that much of what you have
written reeks of the worst kind of hypocrisy... the central theme of
Sojourners from day one... has been anticapitalism.”
According to a special report by the Traditional Values Coalition, which
claims to be the largest nondenominational, grassroots church lobby in
“Throughout the history of Sojourners, Wallis has taken a
consistently left-wing and anti-American stance. He was an antiwar activist
against the Vietnam War... Wallis is also a darling of the liberal media. He
is often quoted in articles critical of conservative Christians or of
President Bush’s faith.”
The report goes on to accuse Wallis of supporting
socialist programs, noting that while Wallis was in seminary, he founded a
magazine he named Post- American. Within its pages, Wallis called for the
redistribution of wealth and for government-managed economies, described as
Other critics saw Wallis as an example of the plutocracy’s
propensity for supporting - and thus controlling - both sides of an issue.
Obama in early 2008 was criticized for intemperate remarks by his
former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, little attention was given to Hillary
Clinton’s longtime active participation with a secretive Capitol Hill prayer
and Bible study group known as “The Family” or “The Fellowship.”
to an article by Barbara Ehrenreich posted on The Nation Website, a
former member of The Family - Jeff Sharlet - described the group’s real
“knitting together international networks of right-wing leaders,
most of them ostensibly Christian.”
Quoting Sharlet, reporter Ehrenreich
wrote that in the 1940s, The Family reached out to former and not-so-former
Nazis, and its fascination with that exemplary leader, Adolf Hitler, has
continued, along with ties to “a whole bestiary of murderous thugs.”
Considering Hillary’s ties to the secretive
Bilderbergs, her husband’s
membership in the
Council on Foreign Relations and the
Commission, as well as her work with the Nazi-connected group called The Family, it could be said that she provides a connective tissue between the globalists and
their new Fourth Reich.
Pastor Lutzer described what he saw as attempts to suppress and denigrate
Christianity in present-day America.
“As the state expands its powers, it
can initiate laws that limit the church’s freedom,” he noted. “Consider the
phrase ‘separation of church and state.’ Interpreted in one way, it can mean
that the church should be free to exercise its influence and practice
religion without interference from the state. That kind of separation is
exactly what the church in Germany so desperately needed.
“However, here in America the phrase ‘separation of church and state’ is
given a sinister twist by civil libertarians. To them, it means that
religious people should not be allowed to practice their religion in the
realm that belongs to the state. Religion, we are told, should be practiced
privately; the state must be ‘cleansed’ from every vestige of religious influence. By insisting that the state be ‘free for all religions,’
organizations such as the ACLU in effect makes it free for none!”
Some churches in America are already feeling the eyes of the government on
In 2007, Pastor Mark Holick of the Spirit One Christian Center in
Wichita, Kansas, urged the IRS to brush up on the constitutional freedoms
guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. This came after his church received a
letter from IRS officials warning it against “political activity” and
demanding answers to thirty-one questions regarding its beliefs.
particularly cited church signs, such as one reading,
Kathleen] Sebelius accepted $300,000 from abortionist [name withheld], price
of 1,000 babies.”
Holick notified the IRS that,
“the church cannot agree to not engage in any
activity that may favor or oppose a candidate. Simply preaching the word of
God on a moral issue to which a candidate is opposed, may be deemed to
oppose a candidate. While it is the church’s policy not to oppose or endorse
a candidate for office, it will not stop preaching God’s word.”
Others have questioned the lack of public concern over a political candidate
forum called “Pentecost 2007.”
“The Americans United for the Separation of
Church and State have suddenly gone mute,” noted Marsha West, founder and
editor of the E-Mail Brigade News Report, an online news service for
Evangelist Bill Keller, founder of the fifteen-year-old
Ministries, which created the Liveprayer with Bill Keller television
program and Liveprayer.com, reportedly the world’s largest interactive
Christian Web site, publicly complained that he too faced problems with his
right to free speech.
He specifically mentioned Americans United for
Separation of Church and State, claiming this,
“liberal group ... [would] try
and silence churches and ministries by asking the IRS to investigate them
for allegedly violating their 501(c)(3) status. Of course, this is designed
to intimidate people into silence, even though in 76 previous attempts [they
have] yet to be successful in getting anyone’s tax exemption pulled. Our
attorneys are confident that nothing I said violated our nonprofit status,
but we are now going to be forced to defend ourselves from the IRS.”
Keller also complained his freedom of speech was being curtailed by Internet
“For the first seven years, we sent our Daily Devotional every
day to our subscribers around the world without any problems, including
those who use Microsoft e-mail accounts,” he said.
, Microsoft went to new filters many ISPs are now using to try and
reduce spam. These new filters are ‘content filters’ and work off of a
dictionary that can have any words added the operator wants. For six months,
we have been getting our Daily Devotional blocked sporadically by
Microsoft’s servers based on the ‘content’ of my message.
This is also
happening to other Christian organizations as well as conservative political
groups who rely heavily on e-mail. We have done all we can to get Microsoft
to rectify this problem, but they have arrogantly failed to even respond...
Even though we could show considerable financial damages over these past six

The issue here is not abortion or content but the right of free speech,
whether it is a church or an individual. Large mainstream monied churches
have long been used as platforms for politicians, both local and national.
They seem to fare well but it is the fringe churches and religions where we
find long- established freedoms being chipped away.
For those unaware of the tactics of
the fascist globalists, it must seem
strange that churches can be intimidated by the government much like in Nazi
Germany, even with a professed Christian in the White House.
Some Christians have been less restrained in their comparison between
professed fundamental Christianity on today’s political scene and the use of
religion in Nazi Germany.
“I have been telling conservative Christians that
who should be howling at the top of their lungs is not the Liberal Left, it
is the Far Right Christian Conservatives, for they are being lied to,
seduced, and misled even more so than the Liberal Left . They are being
seduced into fascism and that is not Christianity,” wrote Christian
Republican Karl W. B. Schwarz, who, probably without knowing of the GOP’s
fascist past, nevertheless styled the Bush-dominated Republican Party a
An Online Journal contributing writer, Schwarz stated,
“In fact, if you look
real close at Bush-Cheney and understand the fundamental dynamics of what
brought Hitler to power, how he controlled the masses, how he sold the Great
Lie, it is very easy to see that Bush-Cheney ‘compassionate Conservatism’
and Fascism are one and the same. Many hear the term ‘neocon’ and do not
recognize that in its current operative sense, it is a term meaning ‘New
World Order Fascist.’”
Whole books have been written about the rise to power in America of the
“Religious Right,” a critical support base for the Republican Party.
most people appeared not to notice the parallels between the fascism of Nazi
Germany and the conservative Christian movement in America today, both with
deep roots in the conservative faction of the population. In America, this
faction tends to be pro-business, which makes it a prime target of the
fascist globalists, who largely control the corporate life of the nation.
This faith-based political movement began in the late 1970s with the
formation of the Moral Majority, a coalition of Christian conservative
groups who were seeking to defeat President Jimmy Carter in the 1980
election. One of its founders was Southern Baptist preacher Pat Robertson,
who in 1988 severed all connections with the church in order to run for
president on the Republican ticket. Defeated in the primaries, Robertson
urged his followers to vote for George H. W. Bush.
Robertson went on to
become an influential TV evangelist, primarily thanks to the Christian
Broadcasting Network he founded in 1961.
In 2005, he was forced to apologize
for comments interpreted by many as advocating the assassination of
Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez.
“I don’t know about this doctrine of
assassination, but if [Chavez] thinks we’re trying to assassinate him, I
think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It’s a whole lot cheaper
than starting a war, and I don’t think any oil shipments will stop,”
Robertson told his audience.
Another Moral Majority founder was Jerry Falwell, a televangelist who became
a firm supporter of George W. Bush’s Faith-based Initiative. Following the
attacks of September 11, 2001, Falwell, on Pat Robertson’s 700 Club TV show,
said pagans, abortionists, feminists, gays, lesbians, the ACLU, and everyone
else trying to secularize America “helped this happen.”
He was found dead in
his office of heart failure on May 15, 2007.
Erik Prince, a former Navy SEAL, is the founder of
Blackwater USA, a private
security contracting firm that has grown into one of the largest private
armies in the world. In 2007, Blackwater came under criticism and
congressional scrutiny following more than two hundred shooting reports in
Iraq, one in September of that year that left seventeen Iraqis dead and more
than two dozen wounded.
Prince’s father, Edgar, a self-made millionaire from selling auto parts,
supported the Family Research Council (FRC), a right-wing fundamentalist
Christian group close to the Bush administration. Both men were significant
contributions to the elections campaigns of George W. Bush. Edgar’s widow
served on the boards of FRC and another heavyweight Christian right
organization, Dobson’s Focus on the Family. She runs the Edgar and Elsa
Prince Foundation, of which Erik is a vice president. The foundation
gave more than $1 million to the Christian right from July 2003 to 2006.
Author Jeremy Scahill compared Prince’s private army to Hitler’s
“Brownshirt” storm troopers.
It has been noted that prewar Germany and the United States both had
Christian roots, a widespread acceptance of biblical social values, and a
basic commitment to private virtue. Pastor Lutzer pointed out that America
has differed from Germany in that it has benefited from a constitutional
guarantee of the separation of church and state, as well as its history of
But he warned:
“Despite the differences, the American church,
like that of Nazi Germany, is in danger of wrapping the cross of Christ in
some alien flag.”
Like so many in modern America, most Germans of the 1930s offered no
resistance to the ever- encroaching fascism of National Socialism.
welcomed the abolition of individual responsibility for one’s actions; for
some it is easier to obey than to accept the dangers of freedom,” wrote
Gerald Suster in his 1981 book
Hitler - The Occult Messiah.
No one in the area of religion seems able to get a clear picture of what is
happening in modern America.
The push-pull between liberty and security,
scripture and social consciousness appears to have created a stultifying
tension. The globalists have found that such ongoing controversies coming
from many different directions is an effective mechanism to keep Americans
arguing with each other, off balance, and ineffective in uniting to learn
the truth behind their New World Order agenda.
It might be wise to consider the words of the New Testament. On three
separate occasions - Matthew 12:31–31, Mark 3:28–29, and Luke 12:10 - Jesus
specifically stated that all sins can be forgiven, even from those who
choose not to believe in him or have blasphemed against him.
But he stated
the one sin that can never be forgiven is to speak against the holy spirit.
