A number of years ago I was speaking with Dr. James Dobson when the issue of our various ministries came up…when do we know it is time to close up shop! Jim said that is easy—when our supporters fail to support. At that time we know it’s time to quit.
Of course, he was thinking of Focus on the Family and I was thinking of Summit Ministries. He retired out of Focus and I retired out of Summit, but what we talked about still holds true with our present organizations.
And I would certainly quit if I knew our Christian Anti-Communism Crusade family of supporters ceased supporting us. BUT THEY ARE NOT! We are still meeting our bills from month to month and for that I am indeed more than grateful, pleased and encouraged.
And, therefore, plan to keep our doors open to The Schwarz Report, Thunderontheright.wordpress.com (our blog), You Can Still Trust the Communists (to be Communists), The Naked Truth, etc. etc.
So I am asking each one receiving this brief letter and reading The Schwarz Report or reading our daily blog (Thunderontheright.wordpress.com) to help us with a gift of $5, $10, $50 or $100 for the upcoming year. This will cover our expenses. This will make your humble servant—more humble!!
However, I need to clarify an issue. Because a number of our supporters work for the federal, state and local governments they cannot write a check made out to the Christian Anti-Communism Crusade. All three names—Christian, Anti-Communism, and Crusade—are politically incorrect. Therefore, we have registered the name Christian Worldview Ministry in the state of Colorado as a d/b/a (doing business as). Checks made out in this name will be accepted as though made out to CACC. Because CACC is the 501©3 organization receipts will bare this name.
Because “Christian” is the major emphasis in our name we are extremely interested in everything that affects our Christian faith and Christian worldview. I’m sure you noticed that both Islam and Communism (Marxism/Leninism) are two worldviews that have declared Christianity their # 1 enemy. Yet some are misreading the roles being played out by Islam and the Left.
As I write our federal government has placed a number of radical Muslims in strategic positions. It appears that the federals are taking after Bill Clinton’s example of hiring such radicals. Clinton placed a top Muslim Brotherhood operative, Gehad el-Haddad, smack into his Foundation. Unfortunately, Gehad has been arrested in Cairo for his radicalism. (See The Washington Beacon, September 18, 2013)
Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America, has been named to the Department of Homeland Security (along with another Muslim, Arif Alikhan). In that role Magid was able to erase from its “Countering Violent Extremism” curriculum “any suggestion that Muslim terrorism draws its inspiration from the laws and doctrines of Islam.” (See DiscoverTheNetworks.org—Mohamed Magid)
If that isn’t enough there is also Mohamed Elibiary, named by President Obama to the Homeland Security Advisory Council in 2010 and recently promoted to a Senior Fellow position. Pam Geller says that Elibiary is a Muslim Brotherhood operative. And Frank Gaffney’s “Muslim Brotherhood in America” details the importance of such a sensitive position. Elibiary, for example, was a guest speaker at a December 2004 conference in Dallas, titled “A Tribute to the Great Islamic Visionary,” which was held in honor of the late Ayatollah Khomeini (the iconic jihadist).
Or Eboo Patel, a Muslim, was appointed by President Barack Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships. It is important to understand that Patel describes the revolutionary communist Van Jones as an “American patriot,” a “faith hero,” and one of the “true giants of history.” To understand the connection between these radical brothers (Islamists and Reds) read the following carefully…
“In 2005 Patel and several young radicals co-authored the book Letters from Young Activists: Today’s Rebels Speak Out. Among Patel’s co-authors were Chesa Boudin (the adopted son of former Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers) and Ismail Khalidi (the son of Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi). The book’s Preface was written by Ayer’s wife, Weather Underground co-founder Bernardine Dohrn. The back cover featured an endorsement from the convicted cop-killer and former Black Panther Party member Mumia Abu-Jamal. And on the Acknowledgments page, Patel and his fellow authors thanked Ayers personally for the ‘guidance’ and ‘encouragement’ he had provided.” (DiscoverTheNetwork.org—Eboo Patel)
Is it any wonder that Andrew C. McCarthy writes, “With their collectivist philosophy, transnational outlook, totalitarian demands, and revolutionary designs, Islamists are natural allies of the radical Left.” (The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America, p. 163) Jamie Glazov in his United In Hate: The Left’s Romance With Tyranny and Terror speaks to this same combination of Islam and Communists and their love of totalitarianism, transnationalism, and terror.
But most writers who cover both of these terror-filled worldviews fail to tell the truth about their killings of Christians.
World magazine writer, Mindy Belz, puts it like this: “Why do we Americans persistently underestimate the evil that men do, and the evil of Islamic terrorism? We who lived through its destruction in lower Manhattan now watch as it turns the streets of Cairo into a fiery hell. In parts of Syria Christians dare not leave their homes. The terrorists’ dark resolve, to paraphrase Shakespeare, comes hot from hell and slips the dogs of war until carrion men are groaning for burial. It shoots pastors at point-blank range, leaving their children to watch and suffer. After that, it hunts child and mother, not content with the hundreds who have been slaughtered in between.” (September 7, 2013)
Bruce Thornton writing in a Hoover Institutional Journal (July 25, 2013) says, “Few people realize that we are today living through the largest persecution of Christians in history, worse than the Roman emperors like Diocletian and Nero…a Christian is martyred every five minutes.”
Thornton says that this martyrdom has been in practice since the “Conditions of Omar” have been promulgated since the seventh century. These conditions ”proscribed building churches or repairing existing ones, performing religious procession in public, exhibiting crosses, praying near Muslims, proselytizing, and preventing conversion to Islam, in addition to rules governing how Christians should dress, comport themselves, and treat Muslims.” If Christians refuse—“it is the sword without leniency.”
That’s the legacy of the Muslims.
Even Liberal TV host Bill Maher speaks some truth to this situation. “There’s only one faith,” says Maher, “that kills you or wants to kill you if you draw a bad cartoon of the prophet. There’s only one faith that kills you or wants to kill you if you renounce the faith. An ex-Muslim is a very dangerous thing. Talk to Salman Rushdie after the show about Christian versus Islam.” (World magazine, May 18, 2013, p. 4)
But there’s more…
“There were likely twice as many martyrs in the twentieth century than in the previous nineteen centuries of Christian history combined. The great majority of these twentieth century martyrs gave their lives for Christ at the hands of communism.” (George Weigel, First Things, April 2011, p. 29)
That’s the legacy of the Communists.
But the historical truth is that the Muslims make the Communists appear to be second class murderers. Missionary Peter Hammond puts this in perspective: “The persecution of Christians by Muslims has become a taboo subject in Western circles. Over thirteen centuries of religious discrimination and persecutions, causing the suffering, oppression, murder and enslavement of countless millions has been buried under a thick whitewash of myths of ‘Islamic tolerance.’”
Hence, the Christian Anti-Communism Crusade plans to stay on top of both these worldviews as well as defending our own Christian worldview. When it comes to Jesus Christ, Karl Marx or Mohammad it isn’t even close. And while Jesus hasn’t asked us to “save” the world (He’s already done that); he has asked us to be his witness in this world and that entails being a truth teller.
And we want you, our supporters and friends, to be a part of this ministry. Although we write you but once a year asking for some financial help we do have needs to cover. So I am asking each one receiving this brief letter and reading The Schwarz Report or reading our daily blog (Thunderontheright.wordpress.com) to help us with a gift of $5, $10, $50 or $100 for the upcoming year. This will cover our expenses. This will make your humble servant—more humble!!
Looking forward to hearing from you, I am…
