Religious Right and Dominionist Leaders Come Together (Again) for 'America for Jesus'

Back in February, we reported that pastor Anne Gimenez was in the process of recreating the 1980 Washington for Jesus rally, which she led with her late husband, Bishop John Gimenez. The new election-oriented prayer rally, called America for Jesus, is scheduled to be held in Philadelphia’s Independence Mall in September and has already received the endorsements of far-right dominionists including Cindy Jacobs, Lou Engle, Jim Garlow and Harry Jackson.

But as with Rick Perry’s The Response and Lou Engle’s The Call prayer rallies, it was only a matter of time before more mainstream Religious Right leaders linked arms with their more openly dominionists brethren.

The latest America for Jesus solicitation mentions support from not only New Apostolic Reformation leaders like Che Ahn, Rick Joyner, Chuck Pierce, Doug Stringer and Barbara Yoder, but also from David Barton of WallBuilders, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council and Mat Staver of Liberty Counsel. Even televangelists Kenneth Copeland, Gordon Robertson and John Hagee have endorsed the event.

In promotional materials [pdf], the event’s organizers use language closely centered around Seven Mountains dominionism, which calls for conservative Christians to take dominion over the seven spheres of society: family; arts and entertainment; business; education; religion and the church; media; and government. They also dabble in some Christian Nation revisionist history, using two fake quotes attributed to founding fathers George Washington (“It is impossible to govern the world without God and the Bible”) and James Madison (“We have staked the future upon our capacity to sustain ourselves according the Ten Commandments of God”).

The Bible provides guiding principles for all spheres of society: government, family, church, science and technology, economics and business, education, media and communications, and arts and entertainment. Every book of the Bible gives us instruction and principles on how to establish God’s kingdom purposes on earth.

If we live by His commands in our own lives, we will impact people around us and their spheres of society. And if Christian leaders in these spheres will uphold God’s principles in their positions of influence, God’s blessings will be multiplied in a healthy and wealthy society….God’s kingdom purposes will come forth on earth as in heaven!

Coulter: Nazis Were Leftists While American Revolution Was “A Revolution Of Christians”

Appearing on The 700 Club with Gordon Robertson on Friday, author Ann Coulter talked to Gordon Robertson about her book Demonic: How The Liberal Mob is Endangering America and how she thinks progressives represent a “mob” and “mob mentality” that threaten democracy. Coulter floated the view, popularized by Jonah Goldberg, that the Nazis were actually “on the left” because they were named the National Socialist Workers Party. Of course, fascists see the political left as their archenemy, and ‘national socialism’ denotes an exclusionary, ethnic-supremacist state that rejects racial, cultural and religious diversity. In fact, fascist literature is dedicated to rejecting the political left which it believes replaces romanticism with intellectualism, nationalism with cosmopolitanism, and ethnic purity with multiculturalism.

Coulter went on to say that the American Revolution was “a revolution of Christians,” which may be news to nonreligious revolutionaries like Thomas Paine, Ethan Allen, and Thomas Jefferson, among many others.

Watch:

Robertson: Is it your book, you’re targeting liberal behavior but can’t you say that because the National Socialist Party used it too, that it’s a critique of all political movements, and particularly all political movements that are adept at manipulating media.

Coulter: Yes though I consider the National Socialist Party on the left. It comes from…you know, whether it is called communism, or socialism, or anarchy, what happened in the Russian Revolution was copied in Nazi Germany, in Russia, in Cuba, in China, in Vietnam. It is the revolt of a mob and it is a small group of elites basically running the populace’s lives. Our revolution by contrast, the French Revolution with the American Revolution, which occurred at about the same time, and the two revolutions are lied about fairly consistently in the media as if you know, ‘the French Bastille Day it’s much like July 4th.’ No, Bastille Day would be if this country celebrated the Manson Family murders or the L.A. riots. The revolutions could not be more opposite. Our revolution was a revolution of Christians.

Lou Engle on The 700 Club

A few weeks back, we noted that Pat and Gordon Robertson had recorded a video message urging people to attend The Call's 10th anniversary rally in Sacramento in September.

Today, Engle was on The 700 Club where he was explained that, despite the fact that the culture seems to be getting progressively worse, those young men and women who took up "the call" ten years ago have become leaders in their own rights who are now shifting the nation and working to bring about the next great awakening:

Gordon Robertson Takes Over CBN

Pat Robertson hands over control to his son: "Robertson said he told CBN's board that it was time for him to pass on some of the duties he has held since he founded CBN in 1960 and that the board unanimously elected Gordon Robertson to replace him as CEO over the weekend. The board also appointed Gordon Robertson to be vice chairman of the board ... Robertson also assured viewers: 'Well, I'm not going anywhere. I'll still remain chairman. But I'm just so thrilled that somebody of this caliber could be the successor at such time the Lord decides to walk me off the stage.'"
