The Jewish Holocaust that occurred in Germany from the late 1930s to 1945 was one of the darkest periods in world history. Adolf Hitler was responsible for the guided torture and death of millions of Jewish people during his fascist leadership. The rationale for this mistreatment and murder of innocent Jewish people was mainly Hitler’s total dislike for Jews as an ethnic group and he also needed an escape goat for all the social and economic problems that had gripped Germany after World War I, especially since the Jews were the leaders of the financial community. Therefore, if Hitler was to achieve his goal for the creation of a new world order with him as the dictatorial leader, he would have to eliminate any and all people that might stand in his way.
The spirit of Hitler did not die with the Allied victory in World War II. It still exists in the minds and hearts of ruthless people all over the world. Unfortunately, many of these people live in the United States of America. Their goal is to create a new world order, too. However, their target group has changed to a certain degree. They hope to annihilate all Christians or any other conservative-minded, god-fearing people. This could very well include Jews, too. But, presently, it is obvious that Christians are their major objective, especially since it is politically incorrect to offend anyone in America except Christians.
A Brewing Pot of Christian Persecution: America’s Postmodern Anti-Christian Crusade exposes the tactics that are being used even now to rid America of Christianity. The anti-Christian agenda in America can be seen in the public school systems, the court systems, and throughout many other public settings. Despite the assumption that America is a Christian nation, it is obvious that Christendom and Christians are on the verge of being persecuted. Read your newspapers. Watch television news broadcasts. Read Internet articles. Read books on the topic (According to Russ Wise in his article “Education and New Age Humanism,” Sheila Schwartz, a member of the American Humanist Association, stated “…but thank God the Crazies don’t do all that much reading. If they did, they’d find they have already been defeated.”). Then, it would be much easier to accept that a brewing pot of Christian persecution is about to boil over in the United States, unless Christians everywhere become aware of what is going on behind closed doors and get on their knees in concerted prayer again.
There are three prime examples that could be used to verify that Christian persecution is on the rise in America. One such example occurred during the spring of 2008. The formation of the Gay/Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives is proof that many of America’s elected leaders are not supporters of Christianity and its positive effect on the United States culture.
Why would elected politicians promote sexual immorality from the chambers of Congress? Politicians are elected to represent the masses of constituents from their states. Since the vast majority of their constituents are not homosexual, why are politicians risking their political careers in an effort to promote a lifestyle that most of their constituents would denounce? Of course, the answer is simple. They have sold out to homosexual lobby groups, just like many major companies and corporations have done in the recent months.
Another example occurred during the aftermath of the Proposition 8 voting in California in November 2008. When the California electorate voted to eliminate same-sex marriage, it caused hundreds of homosexuals to verbally and, in some instances, physically abuse Christians who were opposing their lifestyle. Some homosexuals even went inside Christian churches and did some abominable things. It is amazing that homosexuals want Christians to be tolerant toward them, but they do not treat Christians with the same tolerance, especially since Christians are normally non-violent people. Therefore, as a result, supporters of the homosexual agenda in America have gained the boldness to openly attack Christians and their beliefs. Of course, the homosexual agenda is still alive and well in California and many other liberal states.
One final example took place after President Obama took office. Since he took office, he has purported an anti-Christian belief in the United States. He stated several times that America was not a Christian nation. However, at the same time, he has proclaimed Islam to be a “religion of peace.” Understandably, this proclamation has promoted the religion of Islam over the religion of Christianity. As a result, the American Christian community should realize that the current governmental administration of the United States does not accept the Judeo-Christian base of our constitutional republic.
Ultimately, as the brewing pot of Christian persecution boils over in the United States, more and more individual Christians and their churches will encounter direct persecution. But, prayerfully, America’s Christian persecution will not involve the murder of innocent Christians as has occurred in many foreign countries. However, if American Christians would return to a life of prayer, Bible reading, church attendance, and draw closer to their Lord and Savior, God will provide a way of escape for His followers from the persecution that American Christians will inevitably encounter soon, unless those in high governmental positions wake up and return to their sanity. Persecuting Christians in the very nation that was founded upon Judeo-Christian principles and the constitutional right to live by the dictates of a chosen religious belief system is totally absurd. But, most of all, it could very well lead America into an era very similar to the days of Adolf Hitler in Germany. However, this time it might just be a Christian Holocaust.
