George Soros is Trying to Hijack Christian Churches
The story of secret Russian agents effectively swaying the U.S. election, or colluding with Donald Trump, has petered out into nothingness. For months we heard dark suspicions recklessly spread by news organizations. We learned of selective leaks from inside the Deep State — Obama holdovers or NeverTrumpers determined to wreck his presidency.
Now there’s almost nothing left. Democrats hope to impeach the president for procedural improprieties. For clumsily firing a waffling and partisan FBI director. Still have Putin on the brain? You’ll have to settle for fevered claims by the likes of Louise Mensch that the Russian president, not ISIS, is behind the London terror attacks.
But that doesn’t mean there are no international conspiracies. There are global actors with billions of dollars and vast webs of connections. They are trying to sway U.S. elections. Even worse, some want to hijack Christian churches. Their goal: to dismantle traditional Christian teaching, practice, or prudence on critical public issues:
- Sexuality. Does “male” and “female” refer to a fact of mammalian biology? Or are those fleeting preferences with which we can “identify” during the work week? (Then we can switch off on the weekends.) Are there two genders or forty? Should parents lose custody of their children if they won’t dose their pre-adolescents with the opposite sex’s hormones?
- Marriage. Is this a primordial human institution, the bedrock of society? Is it the union of man and woman for the sake of rearing children? Or is it a temporary sex contract that can include two men, two women, or multiple members of shifting, temporary genders? Should Christians at least be free to cleave to the traditional and rational definition? Or must the state punish them and close down their businesses?
- Immigration. Jesus told us to render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s. Beyond just minting coins and collecting taxes, does that also include securing a nation’s borders? Selecting the best number and mix of immigrants for the sake of a country’s common good? Or are wealthier nations obliged to accept all comers — even those who break the law or favor sharia? This issue isn’t going anywhere. As CNS News just reported, “Nearly 710 million adults worldwide want to migrate to another country and 147 million of those specifically want to come to the United States, according to a newly released survey by Gallup.” Does the Gospel requires us to stand back and wave all those people in? Or are we obliged as citizens to do what is best for our neighbors and our families, here at home?
- Is it the role of government to protect our rights, including property rights, and punish fraudulent businessmen? To foster growth, innovation, and prosperity? Or must we employ appointed bureaucrats to manage our every business relationship? Should the state make eliminating economic inequality the first goal of public policy? Sure, socialism has failed spectacularly everywhere it has been tried. But is that just because we weren’t trying hard enough? Because the state didn’t have enough power, and didn’t work together with other states through globalist institutions?
How to Rent an Evangelical “Mascot”
George Soros thinks he knows the answers to all those questions. A financial speculator who has made billions in part by gaming currency markets, he has embraced radical politics. He supports using global institutions, such as the United Nations, the European Union, and “non-profit” pressure groups to override the votes of citizens in nations around the world. He spent big to influence the U.S. election in 2016. And where he can’t win elections, he pours money into organizations that try to delegitimize and destabilize those regimes that resist him — for instance, the conservative government in his native Hungary.
Even more troubling are Soros’ efforts to infiltrate, hijack, and control Christian churches. Soros’ army of employees is expert at identifying allies within those churches, and pouring money into them to increase their influence and reach. His employees are on record (see video below) as calling these allies “mascots,” part of their program to “rent-an-evangelical.”
The Bishops Who Want to “Disrupt Trump”
Soros spent $400,000 to help Latin American Marxist Catholic groups spin Pope Francis’ U.S. visit as a campaign tour for pro-abortion Democrats. More recently, one of Soros’ pet groups, PICO, helped organize the event at which 24 U.S. Catholic bishops and a cardinal close to Pope Francis (Peter Turkson) pledged to “disrupt Trump,” and to use Catholic church facilities to thwart U.S. immigration laws.
In Protestant circles, Soros has funded the pacifist, anti-borders activism of Sojourners magazine, and the Evangelical Immigration Table.
Soros’ other money fills the coffers of pro-abortion, LGBT, and pro-Islamist activists. The long list of radical groups he funds could fill up this article.
Almost Half-Billion-Dollar Slush Fund
As Capital Research just reported, “In 2015 alone, Soros’s Foundation to Promote Open Society made a total of $431 million in contributions and grants to far-left groups and causes around the world.”
No surprise, one of the main focus of Soros’ efforts has been to exploit and distort Christian charity and hospitality. The goal? Open-borders policies. To flood European countries with aggressive, pro-sharia Muslims. To flood the U.S. with poor, strongly Democrat-leaning Latin Americans. By these means Soros hopes to overwhelm conservative politicians. He came within a hairsbreadth of having as U.S. president his ally Hillary Clinton.
The Video Liberal Pastors Don’t Want You to Watch
I urge you to watch the following eye-opening video. It’s from the American Association of Evangelicals. It exposes Soros’ efforts to undermine national sovereignty, Christian morals, and the market economy around the world. It lists the dozens of front organizations that serve the same radical agenda that has already prevailed in Western Europe.
Please watch and share. Wait for the next time you hear a Christian leader attack almost 2,000 years of church teaching, or wise Christian statesmanship, on a crucial public issue. Then go ahead and ask him, in public: “Do you take money from any organization funded by George Soros? If so, I can’t really hear you over the jingling of those 30 pieces of silver.”
