Former Pennsylvania GOP state lawmaker Sam Rohrer, now with Let Freedom Ring and the Pennsylvania Pastors Network, appeared on VCY America’s Crosstalk this week to argue that a literal reading of the Bible reveals that gun rights come directly from God. However, he went on to say that Jesus’ teachings on non-violence should not be taken literally.
Responding to a caller who asked if there was a connection between new gun laws and Agenda 21, a nonbinding framework for sustainable development that is the source of many conservative conspiracies, Rohrer maintained that government will use both policies to increase its control over people’s lives and to reduce the population, explaining that as a result of new gun and environmental laws there will be “people who will probably lose their lives and there will be a loss of population.”
Caller: A couple months ago you had a program on about Agenda 21 and it seems to me like there is a plan to undermine our whole society in order to accomplish the goal of reducing our population. I think this is part of it, gun control. If we can remember about the Hegelian dialectic, that is where you start out with a thesis and you want an antithesis, you do things in order to bring about a synthesis, right? I believe that this is a plan in order to bring about the things that they want to accomplish so gun control is a part of it.
Rohrer: I think without question. I have spoken a lot on Agenda 21 even years ago before it became a public manner. There are attempts out there clearly, whether it’s to diminish or lower the number of the population is one thing, but certainly control I think is the common aspect behind it. Agenda 21 is a control of our property, it’s a control of our legal system to the local level; so is the intent to take away the ability of people to defend themselves, ultimately government says I don’t want a challenge and so taking away the ability to defend oneself is effectively consolidating the control of government. At the end of the day I think the result of that is that you will have people who will probably lose their lives and there will be a loss of population, but it’s really a gaining and a garnering and centering of control.
