Randall Terry on Quran-Burning: "Fire is a Sign of the Judgment of God"

In a move that should come as no surprise whatsoever, Randall Terry not only supports the burning of the Quran but actually argues that it is what God wants, as "fire is a sign of the judgment of God" [PDF] and has been throughout history:

The historical and theological (Judeo/Christian) proof is inescapable: the “sacred” books, images, and locations of false religions – and their false prophets and priests – are destined for the flames of this world or the next.

Let us beware, lest the frenzy of fools cloud our judgment.

Should we condemn St. Paul for burning witchcraft books? Should we condemn Joshua for burning the pagan cities of Canaan? Should we condemn the heroes of the Old Testament for burning pagan chariots and idols and desecrating pagan temples? Should we condemn the Church Militant that conquered the pagan Greco-Roman deities, and then destroyed their idols and plundered their temples?

Should we condemn our spiritual forebears because they did not “show respect” to the religious beliefs and buildings and books of false religions?

And should we – I speak as a fool – condemn God himself for burning Sodom and Gomorrah, for ordering the burning of countless idols and temples, and for sending his enemies into the lake of fire for all eternity?

If Christianity is true, Islam cannot be true. And if Islam is not true, and Christianity’s history and theology repeats itself (as with the pagan religions of Greece and Rome), Delphi and the Roman Forum are the signposts of Islam’s future.

Randall Terry is Winston Churchill and Everyone Else Is a Nazi Appeaser

Last week we noted Randall Terry was going after other pro-life groups for their failure to mobilize activists to stop Elena Kagan, accusing them of being frauds and charlatans who collect donations to fight abortion and then do nothing.

Over the weekend, Terry penned another scathing attack, this one directed at Steven Ertelt and his LifeNews.com for claiming that there was a "silver lining" in Kagan's confirmation.

Needless to say, Terry does not agree:

This is one long lie. I repeat, it is a lie, designed to get you and I to fall in line, and get behind the Neville Chamberlains of today – Republican hacks and failed pro-life groups.

How dare any of us – whether Steve Ertelt, or Carl Levy, or a clergyman, or anyone – say, or even imply, that we are winning in the presence of 50,000,000 mangled babies? How dare we say we are winning when we just lost (without almost no fight) to Elena Kagan? This is the same delusional and destructive spirit embodied in Neville Chamberlain, which almost cost England its survival.

We do not need bouncing cheerleaders to swing pom-poms around and tell us we are winning, while we are down by an insurmountable score. This is not high-school basketball. It is a life and death struggle with real victims, and we are losing.


Mr. Ertelt’s article made Kagan’s victory seem like a huge step forward for life and liberty.

I wrote to Mr. Ertelt, and told him plainly (among other things) that his story was “…an evil beyond comprehension. For you to try to do anything other than tell the truth about Kagan's victory - that her confirmation is a huge, horrifying victory for the child-killers - shows that you are a fraud.”

I told him he is a “collaborator with the child-killers…” and that the elevation of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court was akin to the fall of France to the Nazis, and trying to give Kagan's victory a "positive spin" is akin to whoredom.

Randall Terry Sets Off Anti-Choice Civil War

Last week Randall Terry sent out an email essentially declaring war on all the other pro-life organizations, calling them frauds and scam-artists who take money from anti-choice activists and produce nothing of value, targeting Priests for Life and Americans United for Life by name: 

Our team spent a long time talking about the material for this show and preparing for it. So I am not going to spend the time now typing out what I said. If this interests you, please watch the show.

But the essence is this: some LEADERS and MANY CHARLATANS in the pro-life movement are like PRO-LIFE VAMPIRES, living off the blood of babies. The very fact that they DO NOT FIGHT KAGAN is the proof of their hypocrisy and duplicity. And their silence is driven by MONEY; the "tax exempt status."

They are useless; they are collaborators with the baby killers themselves. (I DO NOT perceive Fr. Pavone to be fully in that camp, but he is flirting with the wrong people, and it comes out loud and clear in his letter. His organization has clearly put money ahead of the babies in certain fights; I beg your prayers for him and his organization.)

So, using the words of the Priests for Life letter that just went out, and using the useless, godless letter sent out by Americans United for Life - and signed by other pathetic groups - I am drawing a line in the sand, for the sake of the babies.

If the babies - who are being butchered and thrown in sewers and landfills at the rate of 3,500 souls per day - have these men and women as their advocates and protectors, we shall witness millions more perish because of the treachery, love of money, and love of "respect" that guides these cowards and collaborators with the child-killers.

Terry then went on to continue his attacks on his television program on Friday (skip ahead to the 7:00 mark):

And on Saturday, Terry sent out another email containing the original Priests for Life fundraising email that initially set him, which I want to highlight because it reveals that the organization has nearly $1 million in overdue bills: 

I’ve sent you this urgent email because your mission to end abortion is in serious jeopardy!

For years you have dedicated your life to saving innocent babies from the terrible horror of abortion. Your absolute and unwavering commitment to the youngest members of our human family is beyond question. Your loyal and generous support for the work of Priests for Life proves it.

But Priests for Life is in a huge financial hole. I just met with our finance department and our outstanding payables have reached the critical stage:

* Bills now over 90 days old total $673,379.18
* Those over 60 days are another $175,215.76

That’s $848,594.94 in overdue bills that must be paid … now!

But the only way that can happen is if you click here and rush Priests for Life the largest financial gift you can send … today!

It is critically important that you do this before you go on to your next email.

I’m counting on your help because our financial crisis here at Priests for Life threatens to derail your pro-life mission.

Terry and Crew Beat Effigy of Sen. Graham

Randall Terry and his merry band of anti-abortion zealots have been traveling the country in an RV and protesting outside of the state offices of Republican Senators who are refusing to filibuster Elena Kagan.

When they arrived in South Carolina last week, they planned to "burn, hang, or beat" an effigy of Sen. Lindsey Graham for supporting Kagan in committee:

If a man brings the enemy into your camp, he is helping the enemy; when he helps the enemy, he has become the enemy, and must be treated as such. Mr. Graham has betrayed God and innocent babies; we must treat him as a fraud and a traitor from this moment forth.

Turns out, Terry did not actually burn the effigy of Graham, but they did hang and beat it

A mannequin with a picture of Sen. Lindsey Graham's face taped to the head was hung in effigy in downtown Greenville by a protester.

Randall Terry, a nationally-known pro-life supporter from Washington, D.C., came with three supporters to tape a portion of his television show called, "Randall Terry: The Voice of the Resistance."

The anti-abortion activist filmed two skits while in downtown. One of them involved Randall's employee constructing gallows to hang the mannequin with Graham's picture on it.

The other skit involved a stick and a pinata. The workers hit the pinata, which had a picture of Graham on it, until plastic babies fell out of it.

GOD TV and Randall Terry Plead For Donations

Earlier this week we noted that GOD TV was desperately seeking donations in order to keep itself on the air, needing to raise more than a million dollars by the end of the week and $4 million by the end of the month.

It doesn't look like things are going very well, as they have sent out another email urgently asking for money:

We can't stress enough how critical the next few days are for the future of GOD TV and the plans God has laid out for this ministry to continue reaching the nations with the truth.

Many precious viewers have given so generously over the past few days, but we are not yet in the clear and must recover our budget shortfall of $4 million by our May 31 deadline!

As a network funded primarily through voluntary donations, the global financial crisis has hit GOD TV hard. We are asking you our faithful viewer to stand with us financially, and in prayer for a financial miracle, so that we can keep GOD TV reaching more than 160 million families worldwide.

Likewise, Randall Terry has sent out a similarly desperate plea for donations, even though having to do so in embarrassing and will only give fodder to those who mock him:

The rent payments for our office and the "St. George Barracks" must be paid; the materials we produce must be paid for; the utilities and phone bills must be paid for; the press releases that we send out -- helping to keep child killing in the news -- must be paid for.

We are on the frontlines in Washington DC, and as the secular press and media will show you, we are fighting our hearts out to save babies from murder, and to create the social tension necessary to help expedite the end of legalized child killing in America.

But frontline soldiers still need a supply line.

Right now, we need about $30,000 just to get current. In the grand scheme of what various ministries and pro-life organizations take in economically, $30,000 is not a lot of money. But for us it is.

This $30,000 is to pay printing bills (we produce a lot of material), press release bills (we get a lot of press), to reimburse travel costs, and other normal expenses.

I would ask you to step back and to consider how much this tiny band of warriors has accomplished in the last year - with minimal resources - beginning with our efforts at Notre Dame to expose and confront Obama and Notre Dame’s treachery.

If we could raise $5,000 in the next few days, we could pay some pressing, overdue bills.

Right now, we have less than $250 in the bank. We have no savings account, no credit cards, no hidden resources that we can use. We go from hand to mouth... from God's hand and your hand… to the immediate need and pressing battles we face.

Let me finish by giving a word of defiance to our adversaries and critics.

One of the reasons I hate being this honest is because a few people will mock us; a few others – “pro-lifers!” - will be happy that we are in difficulty. We embarrass them by our tenacity and our tactics; and we make them look bad because of our small successes.

But please note, I did NOT say; “We will close our doors without your help!!!”

I DID NOT say: “We cannot continue our life saving work without your help!!!” Or, “We have huge plans – plans that could change the world – and I cannot launch them without you!!!”

That type of hype and charades disgusts me.

I testify before God and men and angels:

We will stay in this fight, regardless of our resources.

We will struggle along; we will not quit;

We will not shrink back from battle during times of want.

We will fight on.

Randall Terry TV: Comedy, Music, and Politics as Performed by Stephen Colbert, Rush Limbaugh, and John the Baptist

mentioned that Randall Terry has created his own television show yesterday but I didn't really know how to describe it ... so we'll just let Terry describe it himself

Randall Terry, Founder of Insurrecta Nex and OverturnRoe.com, is launching a five day per week half-hour television show, originating from Washington DC called "Randall Terry: The Voice of Resistance." The show premieres on Monday, May 10, 2010.

"The show will be a combination of news, comedy, songs, skits, and of course...leadership training for culture warriors. Think of a hybrid of Stephen Colbert, Rush, and John the Baptist. And of course, we will torment our adversaries, just because we can." -- Randall Terry

Terry says his show has been picked up by two stations so far: WQXT in St. Augustine FL and WCKV in Clarksville, Tennessee.

Here's the trailer again ... just because it is awesome

I Want My RTV!

Everybody get ready for the comedy and musical stylings of Randall Terry TV

We begin Broadcasting on May 10 on Two TV Stations and an On-Line Network. Watch the Clip to see Samples from the Show.

We have been working morning, noon, and night - late into the night! - to get this show ready to air.

People are giving us "two thumbs up" on what they see thus far.

I am REALLY excited, and really nervous...

This show will be funny, hard hitting, and it will call the righteous to battle in the culture wars. Beyond the call, we will TRAIN people how to fight in the epic struggle for the soul of our nation.

God bless you, and make His Face shine upon you.

Again, I beg your prayers.

Randall Terry Now Focusing His Antics On the Archdiocese of Washington, DC

Last week, the Catholic League told Randall Terry to cram it and stop demanding that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi be excommunicated from the Catholic Church and that Archbishop Wuerl of the Archdiocese of Washington, DC stop allowing her and others to take Communion, saying "it's not the job of Randall Terry, or anybody for that matter, to lecture the bishops on what they should or shouldn't do."

Of course, Terry has no intention of stopping, which is why he and his crew are protesting outside of the Cathedral of Saint Matthew, demanding that Archbishop Wuerl stop granting communion to "people who have literally participated in the murder of babies":

Catholic League Tells Randall Terry To Cram It

Following the passage of health care legislation by the House earlier this week, Randall Terry and company protested outside of the Vatican demanding that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi be excommunicated from the Catholic Church and that Archbishop Wuerl of the Archdiocese of Washington, DC stop allowing her and others to take Communion:

Today, the Catholic League, which exists primarily to fight back against any and all perceived swipes at the Catholic Church, took the unique step of more or less telling Terry to sit down and shut up:

Randall Terry and six others have been protesting near the Vatican, holding signs asking that Speaker Pelosi be denied communion and that the California Democrat be excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church. Pelosi is a lifelong Catholic and Randall Terry a fairly recent convert. Catholic League spokesman Jeff Field responds to the call for excommunication.

"We are a conservative Catholic organization, but yet we leave the bishop's work up to the bishops," says Field. "It's not the job of Randall Terry, or anybody for that matter, to lecture the bishops on what they should or shouldn't do with politicians such as Nancy Pelosi."

He points out that Terry evidently believes it is his right to do so -- "and we don't believe that it's our right or anybody's right to tell the bishops what to do," adds Field.

According to the Catholic League spokesman, that type of demonstration harms the process.

"I think it's harmful to insert yourself into a discussion like that where you don't have the right to do so, especially as Catholics believe," Field argues. "We believe that the bishops speak for the church. We believe that excommunication is a decision that is based on their discretion, not [that of] any lay Catholic."

He says while the Catholic League has been critical of Congresswoman Pelosi, the group would not dare suggest that she be excommunicated. Field suggests Terry is a "headline grabber, is over-presenting himself, and making a name for himself."

That's right; the Catholic League, run by the attention-seeking Bill Donohue, is calling Randall Terry a pathetic "headline grabber" out to make a name for himself.

I cannot wait for Terry to fire back and watch this explode into a battle between two holier-than-thou right-wing Catholic activists.
