I'M ON A MAN HUNT
We can win you know?
I�m not talking about Iraq. I�m talking about America, the cultural war, the fight for the soul of this nation, the war against Christianity. The battle for our country.
I�m convinced we can still win.
Unfortunately, very few of us believe it. But, like the Marines, I�m looking for a few good men. Men of the cloth, men of Faith, men who will stand on the Word, men who will fight for the Truth, men who will fight for their children, men who will not blink, men who have not sold out to the government, men who identify themselves as Christians rather than Republicans.
It is time for a new Black Robed Regiment.
We�re not looking for the mega-church pastors. They�re too busy selling books. We�re looking for those who have wandered in the wilderness and are shepherding a flock of 50, 100 or 300. For the men of God who care about this nation, who have not bought in to the lie of separation of church and state, men who don�t believe Romans 13 compels us to follow ungodly leaders or laws.
We�re looking for a spiritual SWAT team, Spiritual Weapons And Tactics, men who understand the Christian heritage of this nation and are willing to defend it.
We can win! It won�t be easy, but I am a man with a plan.
My eyes began to open in 1998 when I was assaulted and eventually sued by the ACLU for praying with our football teams in Ohio. I watched most of the yellow-bellied pastors in our small town run and hide as the ACLU attacked our right to pray. The same �men of God� who came into the locker-room to lead our team in prayer prior to the ACLU suit, never had the courage to stand with me. When the ACLU sued�.they ran. NOT ONE of the pastors who for years had led our pre-game prayers even bothered to call me. While I stood publicly for Christ they preached �peace� from their pulpits. While my family and I were dragged through the mud, they peeked out of their windows at the lynching. While I defied the separation of church and state, they preached Romans 13. In 2000 I decided to fight back. I left my career to start Pass The Salt, sort of a Paul Revere to the church. �The British are coming,� I called to the church. But what most of the pastors wanted to do was Sing a Little Louder. They were cowardly. No nice way to say it. They were men without chests.
In 2001 Pass The Salt spun off an organization called Minutemen United. All that did was scare the pastors even more. �Oh my goodness, they have a gun in their emblem. Run from these violent men. They will make us, the real Christians, look bad.� The media called us a hate group and most pastors agreed with them. It gave them more of a reason to hide inside their churches. Heaven forbid the world would call them names. They thought that if they appeared �nice� the lost would come to their churches. �We love Jesus too, but we�re not fanatical about it. Open hearts, open doors, open minds.�
But a strange dynamic was occurring. Every time I got the opportunity to speak in a church, I found MEN who were sick and tired of what was going on in America. They didn�t know what to do, but knew something had to be done. Their pastor�s idea of engagement was to make them ushers in the church. The men wanted a battle; instead they had been trained to be nurses. No wonder men are dropping out of church.
So we began to put together a team. We encouraged pastors to lead their men into battle, but very few did. Slowly, one by one, we began to draw men out of the pew and into the streets. The men caught fire, the pastors grabbed their hoses. �No wild fire around here� became the shepherds� mantra. �Coach is a fanatic; he�ll get you in trouble. Stay here with me. I�m your pastor. I have authority over you. Coach isn�t part of our denomination and he is trying to tear down the local church.� And still the men came.
I�ve taken all of the arrows. I�ve heard all of the excuses. I�m tired of the rhetoric. Christian America is under attack. Let the cowards hide. I�m looking for some manly pastors.
Are there any out their?
Here is the vision.
In 1998 our small town was blindsided by the ACLU. We were minding our own business, raising our families, going to church, when we were suddenly jolted by an attack from the enemies of God. The pastors were cowards, the churches were divided, and so good men did nothing. What if there had been a group of Christian men in the community that was willing to stand for Truth? What if God-fearing patriots had already reached across denominational and racial barriers and had joined forces to fight for Truth before the attack came? What if, when the ACLU attacked, a strong nucleus of Christian men came out of the churches, stormed the school board, and demanded that they stand for prayer? What if, instead of retreating into their stained-glass fortress, the men of God got out of the pews and defended Christ? The Godless ACLU attack is coming to a city near you!
The British are coming pastor. You may not see them, but take my word for it, they�re coming. And the church, just like the government, likes to spend it�s time sticking her thumb in the old dyke, rather than building a new one. A spiritual Katrina is hitting America, and rather than sharpening our thumbs, we should be rebuilding the walls.
Tired of the local department store selling entry-level porn to children? Tired of your local school indoctrinating your children in the homosexual lifestyle? Tired of government officials being unresponsive to ungodly behavior? Tired of nude homosexuals marching down your streets in parades? Tired of folks running scared from the enemies of God? Tired of girlie man leadership telling you to love God�s enemies? If you are, then it is time to stand.
As we found out during Katrina, the church already has a great network in place. While FEMA threw money at the problem, the churches threw themselves. Churches all across the nation partnered with churches in the south. Make no mistake, the Church saved more lives than FEMA, and the Red Cross combined. Look at this waste!
Why can�t we see it? Christians ARE the Minutemen, we�re just not United. That�s what we want to do. We want to raise up in every community in America a group of Christians who are ready to defend Truth. The ultimate and original Homeland Defense is Christian men defending their communities.
But experience has taught me that we can�t really do it without the pastors. Our Minutemen United groups thrive when the pastor is involved. His men naturally follow their leader. Rev. Jonas Clark said, as his led his Minutemen towards Lexington and the British army, that he had "trained them for this very hour; they would fight, and, if need be, die, too, under the shadow of the house of God. From this day," said he, when he saw their dead bodies, "will be dated the liberty of the world."
We don�t want your men pastor. We want you. We need you to lead your men into battle. You�re not joining a club, you�re not joining a denomination, and despite what the media will try to convince you, you are not joining a hate group. You are simply locking arms with your brothers in Christ and standing for truth in your own hometown. You control your men. You pick the battles your men will fight, as they join forces with other men, under the leadership of their pastor.
Look at this picture of the Christian men out in the streets. Promise Keepers called them out of the pew, but they failed to put them in the game. That is what �the Coach� does, puts men into the game. We are after those men! They have already signed up for the team�they just don�t know where the game is. Don�t get lost looking at the masses in the picture. This is a picture of individuals, millions of them, lead by their pastor, joining with other individuals, lead by their pastor.
Oh yes, we CAN win.
If you are a pastor or a church leader and you want to join with us please contact us. No matter the size of your congregation we would love to come and help you start a chapter in your town.
We need donations. We want to attend as many PK conferences as we can and enlist men in the battle. It takes money. PK charges $900 per event to set up a booth. Last week in Albany, New York we had great success. MANY MEN WANT TO STAND. We are going after them. Please help fund the project! If you are all alone in the fight and you want to join our team, we suggest a membership fee of $50 per year.
Millions of people visit this website. If YOU GAVE we can build an army. Everyone gripes�no one fights. They�re tearing down crosses, stripping the 10 Commandments, legalizing deviancy, defying the armies of God.
It�s time to put up�or shut up. We�re willing to fight. Will you help fund the army?
If not me, who? If not now, when? If you won�t give, who will?
It�s time to put your money where your mouth is. Prayer moves Heaven, money moves earth.
out my new CD�Why
Should God Bless America?�it's better than listening to O'Rush,
O'Hannity, or O'Reilly. Pass some salt to your friends!
