Donald Trump and the Christian “Taliban”
The Family Research Council is another Christian fundamentalist front-group that hates anyone and everything deemed “liberal” or “left-wing” including homosexuals, same sex marriages, sex education in schools, etc. However, it appears to be run by a bunch of self-hating homosexuals, I guess in an effort to redeem themselves at other peoples expense. Obviously, it takes a hard line on American foreign policy and advocates preemptive attacks on foreign sovereign nations based on any flimsy excuse.
“The Family Research Council (FRC) is a conservative, Christian-right group…a lobbying force for conservative legislation on Capitol Hill….a division of…Focus on the Family… Its function is to promote what it considers to be traditional family values. The FRC promotes socially conservative views on many issues, including divorce, homosexuality, and abortion. It does not limit itself to social conservatism, also promoting a variety of other views including a hawkish foreign policy…In 2010, the Family Research Council was classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. FRC President Tony Perkins (…ran for the United States Senate in 2002) dismissed the hate group designation as the result of a political attack by a “liberal organization” and “the left’s smear campaign of conservatives”. -Wikipedia
“Homosexual Panic Defense”
“…is premised on the theory that a person with latent homosexual tendencies will have an extreme and uncontrollably violent reaction when confronted with a homosexual proposition.” –Harvard Law Review
The main players are:
-Gary Lee Bauer: is a staunch anti-gay and anti-same-sex marriage campaigner. This attitude often covers up the fact that someone has something to hide and many suspect Mr. Bauer of being a homosexual. Gary mixes in powerful circles. He apparently knew one of the biggest nut-jobs and everyone’s favourite, Sun Myung Moon of the “Moonies” fame.
“In 1996, Bauer took between $80,000 and $150,000 — plus expenses — from the Moonies to speak before one of their front groups, the “Family Federation For World Peace”. Cult leader Sun Myung Moon and his fourth wife also spoke at the conference.” -Found at: www.realchange.org
-James Dobson: founded “Focus on the Family” in 1977 an “American evangelical Christian tax-exempt non-profit organization”. Dobson “advocates school sponsored prayer and supports corporal punishment” meaning, keep Church and State together and let’s slap our children around.
-George Alan Rekers: is listed on Wikipedia as being a psychologist and Southern Baptist Minister. A member of the Family Research Council he served as an advisor to “NARTH, National Association for Research & Therapy of Homosexuality” which according to Wikipedia is “an organization offering conversion therapy intended to change homosexuals into heterosexuals. Rekers has testified in court on the allegedly destructive and sinful nature of homosexuality, and the unsuitability of gay and lesbian people for parenthood, in a number of court cases involving organizations and state agencies working with children.” These people are obsessed with homosexuality most likely because they are looking for a cure they can use themselves, but how the heck can you “cure gay”? But as someone said, Karma is a bitch, especially for Rekers…
“George Alan Rekers’ Rent-Boy Scandal”
“George Alan Rekers is the best new self-hating homosexual. A cofounder of the anti-gay group Family Research Council and a leading proponent of the movement to “cure” gay people through religion, Rekers was apparently caught getting off a plane accompanied by a male prostitute named “Lucien,” (Jo-Vanni Roman) who was hired through the…website RentBoy.com. You can’t make this shit up. UPDATE: Rekers’ rentboy admits that they had sex. Apparently Rekers particularly enjoyed a massage technique called “the long stroke.” -Found at: www.buzzfeed.com
And to back up this claim the Miami New Times ran a story: “On April 13, the “rent boy”…arrived at Miami International Airport…after a ten-day, fully subsidized trip to Europe…followed out of customs by an old man with an atavistic mustache and a desperate blond comb-over, pushing an overburdened baggage cart. That man was George Alan Rekers…the callboy’s client and…one of America’s most prominent anti-gay activists. Rekers, a Baptist minister who is a leading scholar for the Christian right, left the terminal with his gay escort…”

Gary Bauer also serves on the Executive Board of “Christians United for Israel (CUFI)” a lobby group headed by Christian Zionist, “Mr. Tubby” John Hagee. CUFI is apparently the largest pro-Israel organization in America that defines itself as “a national grassroots movement focused on the support of Israel.” Jerry Falwell sat on the executive board until his son Johnathan took over. Interestingly, the Executive Director of CUFI (the first letter “C” stands for “Christians”) is a man by the name of David Brog. Brog is Jewish.
Returning to Sun Myung Moon for a moment, leader of the Unification Church and his relationship with Jerry Falwell. First, if you don’t know about Moon, he was most likely the craziest fruitcake out there. He believed that he was the Messiah and the Second Coming of Christ and because Jesus didn’t finish the job Moon was going to fulfilling that mission. He was also involved with a sect called Israeli Suo-won, which practiced a strange “purification” ritual, in which women achieved purity by having intercourse with the sect’s ministers. Moon was charged with “morals violations” in both North and South Korea and eventually jailed in 1955 according to an FBI report, obtained by reporter Robert Parry under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
Moon’s second in command is/was Bo Hi Pak who has an interesting background. Pak is one of the founders of the Korean CIA along with a man by the name of Kim Jong-Pil (The congressional investigation concluded that Kim Jong Pil and the South Korean CIA helped Moon expand his church into a well-financed international organization. They then used Moon’s organization to buy influence inside the U.S. government, the congressional investigation found. Found at: www.mail-archive.com), with connections to the American CIA and the radical right wing of Anglo-American intelligence, majorly interwoven with Christian Fundamentalists. This ties to the Bush family as Bush senior has spoken at “Moonie” rallies. Moon is a fervent anti-communist, which might explain why the US government supported this raving loony.
Back in 1994/95 (dates vary) Moon financed Jerry Falwell through his Christian Heritage Foundation to between $2.5 and $3.5 million (amounts vary) because Falwell’s Church and Liberty College was on the brink of bankruptcy and in doing so they (Moon and Falwell) managed to screw investors out of around $70 million. The money though didn’t come directly from Moon but from the Women’s Federation for World Peace (WFWP) an organization run by his latest wife with ties to extremist women’s groups.
“Before the dawn of the 1990s, every significant name on the Christian Right “Pat Robertson, Tim and Beverly LaHaye, Gary Bauer, James Dobson, Robert Schuller” had been taken over by Moon and turned into even bigger con artists than they had been before they went groveling for narco-dollars.”
“The main question for the Christian Right…is: What was more embarrassing” having to associate with a stark-raving lunatic who proclaimed that Jesus Christ had failed in his mission, and that God had anointed Moon as the actual “King of Kings,” the “True Parent” of a new master race; or, knowing that they were being bought off by offshore dirty money, much of it linked to international narco-terrorism?” -“LaRouche – Moonies Are Target Too Big To Be Missed” by Jeffrey Steinberg – This article appears in the Nov. 1, 2002 issue of Executive Intelligence Review Found at: www.rense.com
The inter-relations are vast. Moon who funded and supported Falwell also funded the Scientologists, and we all know about them thanks to Leah Remini. Moon and Falwell were connected to Gary Bauer and the gang from the Family Research Council started by Edgar D. Prince, father of Catholic Christian Crusader and Knight of Malta, Erik Prince, owner of a private army (Blackwater). Moon was connected to most of the major Evangelical Fundamentalist extremist Christians cults either directly through finance or “spiritually”. They include fear mongers Beverly and Tim LaHaye, anti-Gay crusaders. Tim is the creator of the despicable book series “Left Behind”, an apocalyptic sadistic hate novel concerning the fictitious “Ends of Time”. LaHaye, along with all the other Fundamentalist whores got financial sponsorship from Moon.
“The political disposition and substantial financial reserves of Unification Church leader, the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, have bought him a number of associations with noteworthy people. Former presidents George Bush and Gerald Ford, comedian Bill Cosby and singer Whitney Houston have appeared at Moon-sponsored events. Even some within the “Christian” camp, such as Beverly LaHaye, Ralph Reed, Pat Boone, Robert Schuller, and Jerry Falwell have been guest speakers at gatherings hosted by Moon or one of his front groups.” -Found at: www.pfo.org –
-Ralph Reed: Reed was a former director of the Christian Coalition. In 2004, he oversaw the Bush-Cheney campaign in the South. His squeaky-clean persona was tarnished when he was association with criminal, Jack Abramoff was exposed.
The Christian Coalition is another one of these hate-filled, Holy-Roller style, fire and brimstone cults run by a whack-job equal to Moon. And this is Pat Robertson, hate-monger, anti-Gay, anti-same-sex marriage, anti-women that want to do anything other than cook, clean, breastfeed and service their husbands. The most obnoxious, stupid and downright ignorant comments come from Robertson’s mouth.
-“I know this is painful for the ladies to hear, but if you get married, you have accepted the headship of a man, your husband. Christ is the head of the household and the husband is the head of the wife, and that’s the way it is, period.”
-“If you go all the way back to the days just following creation, men lived nine hundred years or more.”
-“Satan is a tool of God’s love in the sense that he forces us to see God’s loving patience.”
-“The media challenged me. `You’re not going to bring atheists into the government? How dare you maintain that those who believe the Judeo-Christian values are better qualified to govern America than Hindus and Muslims?’ My simple answer is, `Yes, they are.'”
-“There is no such thing as separation of church and state in the Constitution. It is a lie of the Left and we are not going to take it anymore.”
This interconnected web is vast and I will end here. Hopefully I have shown the sinister connections and machinations that Trump has put into play. Not that these people and organizations did not exist before, but now they are blatantly thrown in the face of the American People and present a huge challenge to peace, human-rights and sanity. -The Warrior
