Dallas Pastor Uses Bible To Justify Killing N Korea Boss

Robert Jeffress: Trump has ‘ moral authority to take out North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’

This story quotes from TheDallas Daily New

Dallas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress, one of President Donald Trump’s evangelical advisers who preached the morning of his inauguration, has released a statement saying the president has the moral authority to take out North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

“When it comes to how we should deal with evil doers, the Bible, in the book of Romans, is very clear: God has endowed rulers full power to use whatever means necessary – including war – to stop evil,” Jeffress said. “In the case of North Korea, God has given Trump authority to take out Kim Jong Un.”

WHTT Editor Charles E (Chuck) Carlson chimes in:  Wait a minute Pastor Jeffress, Jesus is a peacemaker, and so was Apostle Paul who wrote Romans 13. But you quote Paul as Donald Trump’s moral authority to murder a foreign leader.  You resort to using Christianity’s most trusted scripture, the New Testament, to justify cold-blooded killing, not just to “take out” the pugnacious and arrogant, KimJung Un, but probably to kill all those who are around him at the time, and perhaps start a war to kill thousands more. You know, and you admit, that The book of Romans is about tolerance and love, but you rely on the first 7 verses of Romans 13 to justify murder.  Are you sure you read and interpreted these few verses as Paul intended them?  When he wrote words to the effect that all magistrates were appointed by God to do good and punish evil doers etc, might he have had a different meaning to convey, since those he praised had power of life and death over him?  I think so, and furthermore, I think Paul told us the real meaning of these six verses in his own words.

Back to the editor of the Dallas Daily News, (Jeffress word in “quotes”)

Jeffress, who leads downtown’s First Baptist Dallas, said in a phone interview that he was prompted to make the statement after Trump said that if North Korea’s threats to the United States continue, Pyongyang will be “met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”

The biblical passage Romans 13 gives the government authority to deal with evildoers, Jeffress said. “That gives the government to the authority to do whatever, whether it’s assassination, capital punishment or evil punishment to quell the actions of evildoers like Kim Jong Un,” he said.

He said that many pacifist Christians will cite Romans 12, which says, “Do not repay evil for evil,” but Jeffress says that that passage is referring to Christians, not to the government.

Jeffress is no stranger to controversy. He has said in the past that former president Barack Obama paved the way for the antichrist and drew wide attention for calling Mormonism a cult during the 2012 Republican primary. Jeffress knows his comments on North Korea could be considered controversial, even among fellow evangelicals.


Ernst Zündel: World’s Best-Known Political Prisoner, Dead at 78

Here are three articles, two by revisionist historian and Judaic scholar, Michael Hoffman. The third is by Mike King of TomatoBubble fame. Please read them because you won’t find this information in the mainstream media. As a Jewish correspondent remarked recently, the world has always been divided between those who have a plan and those who are kept in ignorance of it. The first is government and those who control it, and the second is the mass of ordinary people, like you and me. Although we’re ordinary, we can at least inform ourselves. It’s still not a crime…not yet.

Who Funds ISIS and Are We Headed To War With Russia?

There’s no doubt that US gets good intelligence from all its spy agencies. But why is the US floundering with its perpetual wars in the Middle East and edging toward a war with Russia?

Canadian Christian blogger convicted of ‘online hate’ by B.C. court

Curfew and internet ban for B.C. man convicted of online hate against Jewish people

Arthur Topham tells judge it was his ‘duty to alert public … to ‘imminent threat of Jewish lobby’

Curfew and internet ban for B.C. man convicted of online hate against Jewish people
Arthur Topham tells judge it was his ‘duty to alert public … to ‘imminent threat of Jewish lobby’

Arthur Topham arrives at the Quesnel courthouse Monday for sentencing on his hate crime conviction. (Wil Fundal/CBC News)

A B.C. man convicted of an anti-semitic [i.e., anti-Zionist] hate crime has been kicked off the internet, but Arthur Topham won’t serve any jail time.Following a trial in Quesnel in 2015, a jury convicted Topham of one count of communicating online statements that wilfully promoted hatred against Jewish people. [On a second, virtually similar account, Topham was found not guilty. The jury that convicted Topham on the first count did not understand the meaning of ‘parody’!]

He could have faced up to two years in jail.

But at his sentencing Monday, B.C. Supreme Court Judge Bruce Butler rejected the Crown’s request for four months of house arrest for what Crown lawyer Jennifer Johnston called “an indirect call for violence against Jewish people.”

Judge rejects house arrest

Instead, Butler sentenced Topham to a six-month conditional sentence with a ban on posting publicly online and a curfew.

Topham appeared unrepentant, telling the court before sentencing that it was ‘his duty … to alert the … public to the imminent threat …. [of] the Jewish lobby.”

Topham, a 70 year old grandfather and retired teacher, published RadicalPress.com online from his rural home in Cottonwood, B.C., about 700 kilometres north of Vancouver.

The site featured frequent posts that touted Jewish conspiracies and demonized Jewish people. [Apparently, only Jewish bloggers are allowed to express opinions about Jews. See Henry Makow website.]

One piece that Topham called ‘satire’ advocated the forced sterilization of all Jews. [Actually, Topham satirized the book, Germany Must Perish, available on Amazon, in which the Jewish author, Theodore Newman Kaufman, advocated forced sterilization of all Germans! So, real anti-German hate is OK in Canada!]

“He does not call for violence; his views were political satire,” Butler told the sentencing hearing. “It is not his intent to indirectly incite violence.”

Butler ruled that Topham deliberately used the internet to disseminate anti-Semitic information but said the man was not calling for violence.

Controversial website shut down

The crown noted Topham had already agreed to shut down his website, a site which remained active for the year after his conviction but was gone before sentencing. Topham also offered to end his online presence.

Defence lawyer Barclay Johnson had called on the judge to give Topham a discharge.

“My view is that jurors were not convinced,” said the defence lawyer, noting Topham was convicted of only one of two hate crime charges.

Johnson described his client as a good teacher, a father and grandfather and a journalist with “controversial views” and a large following.

“RadicalPress does not advocate violence,” said Johnson. “It does not say Jews should be hurt. My client is being prosecuted for material that can be found on Amazon.” [True, but just recently Amazon has censored 100s of books it does not agree with.]

Topham’s defence backed by ‘white nationalists’

This case was the first hate crime trial prosecuted in B.C. in almost a decade.

Topham’s defence fund was backed by Paul Fromm, a self proclaimed ‘white nationalist’ and free speech advocate who travelled from Ontario to attend the trial.

Topham’s lawyer argued his client has never been a member of a white supremacy group.

Topham’s case also attracted support from the Ontario Civil Liberties Association, which denounced Canada’s hate crime law for criminalizing “belief, opinion and expression of one’s beliefs and opinions … incompatible with the universal principle of free debate in a democracy.”

Topham thanked the court for “bringing my concerns to the record.”

“I felt that I had a duty as a Canadian citizen to alert the general public of an imminent threat … the interests of the Jewish lobby,” said Topham in court Monday.

​Topham’s constitutional challenge of Canada’s hate crime laws was dismissed in February.

Boulder City Council Approves Nablus to Become Eighth Official Sister City

January 4, 2017

Nablus, Palestine, will become Boulder's eighth Sister City.

As Tuesday night’s meeting of Boulder’s City Council kicked off at 6 p.m., constituents spilled out of the chambers and into an overflow area in the lobby, where a crowd sat tensely, glued to the live TV proceedings. These people had come to either speak in support of or against Nablus, Palestine, becoming one of Boulder’s official Sister Cities, and they queued up for two minutes at the microphone during which they planned personal pleas and impassioned defenses.

The meeting was the culmination of a process set in motion over three years ago, when the Boulder Nablus Sister Cities Project (BNSCP), the organization behind the application to make Nablus a Sister City, first went in front of Council — and was rejected. In 2013, the Council worried the project was driving a wedge in the community, and it asked the BNSCP to continue its activities fostering personal connections via yoga, a pen-pal program, artist exchanges and the like, and come back with another application once it had attempted to heal the divide.

The BNSCP was prepared to return in April of this year, but fearing the same opposition, it asked council to send it and its opponents to a mediation process instead, so that both sides could attempt to work out differences and provide some sort of recommendation to council as to how to proceed. As we reported in October and in the lead-up to this meeting, though, the two sides were unable to come to a consensus as to whether Nablus should be an official Sister City. And so its final report represented a summary of its work, with concerns and possibilities highlighted. Both sides knew that they’d ultimately face each other before council again, and they’d discuss themes similar to that meeting three years ago — whether sistering with Nablus has an inherently political bent, even if the intent of Sister Cities relationships is to foster cultural exchange; whether the coupling provides the BNSCP with a license to tell a one-sided version of a complex global issue; and whether taking on Nablus as a Sister City would cause a devastating rift in the Boulder community.

Passionate defenders on both sides of the issue spoke at the hearing; Mayor Suzanne Jones noted as public comment kicked off that over sixty people had signed up. Opponents took issue with Nablus’s politics, the fact that Jewish people may feel unsafe visiting Nablus, and the creation of a city-sponsored outlet to present the story of Israeli Occupation in the West Bank without providing the rest of the conflict’s context. Several said they supported the outreach BNSCP did, but not the official stamp of approval. Supporters detailed their own experiences in Nablus, begged for inclusiveness on behalf of a marginalized Palestinian and Muslim community in America, and urged the council to uphold Boulder’s reputation for openness. They pointed to the organization’s statement of commitments, which expressly forbids the BNSCP from engaging in political advocacy or allowing others to do so via the organization.

Four hours later, the council voted 7-2 to approve Nablus as Boulder’s eighth official Sister City. “What we’re saying yes to tonight is the power of the Sister City relationship,” Jones said just before the council took it to a vote. “I want to say ‘yes’ to the power of relationships and power of what can be. This Sister City is going to be held to tough standards, but that’s the nature of what we’re getting into here.”

BNSCP executive director Essrea Cherin said before the meeting that should the project be approved, the organization will continue trying to reach out to people from the other side to heal the divide over the project. Council will review the partnership once a year to make sure it’s in line with its responsibilities. Meanwhile, the BNSCP will now operate under the official umbrella of the Sister Cities International organization, giving it access to resources and connections provided to official Sister Cities.
