New movie about convicted murderer Dr. Gosnell

Remember Dr. Kermit Gosnell, the infamous late-term Pennsylvania abortion doctor found guilty of murdering three infants born alive, now serving life imprisonment without the possibility of parole?

There is a new movie coming out detailing this gruesome, horrific story. Filmmaker Ann McElhinney gives a moving interview detailing the history and reasons for why she decided to bring this tragedy to the world. Fast forward to 7:00 to get to her story:

Unfortunately, this macabre story received little coverage in the mainstream news.  This is understandable because the majority of the mainstream news is pro-death and view “abortion on demand with no restrictions whatsoever” to be a sacred, inalienable right.

But the case of Gosnell exposes abortion for what it actually is:  the outright murdering of pre-born  children and the extent that pro-death enthusiasts in government will go to keep this barbaric practice going, unfettered by governmental oversight and regulations.

I have been a pro-life activist for almost 40 years.  One truth this activism has shown me is the deceptive nature of the abortion argument used by pro-choice advocates.

You will never see a pro-choice cheerleader on a college or university campus, whether that person be a student, professor, or Planned Parenthood representative, showing pictures of aborted babies.  It does not happen.

Why?  To ask the question is to answer it:  they refuse to show such pictures because it is prima facie evidence that abortion is the dismemberment, decapitation and disemboweling of yet unborn infants.

Reader, are you pro-choice?  Have you seen photographs and/or video of aborted babies?  If not, allow me to recommend you visit this site:

Do your research on this important topic.  Another excellent resource is “Center for Bio-Ethical Reform (CBR).”  There are many pro-life groups where you can find all the information you need to educate yourself on the horrors of abortion.

And I encourage you to watch the film “Gosnell” when it hits theaters on October 12, 2018.  Here is the link for the premier and the movie website:

America is a divided nation and only getting worse

I watched a snippet of the confirmation hearings on Supreme Court nomination Brett Kavanaugh and it is disgraceful on many fronts:

https://youtu.be/-L7PkP5vptc

That Senator Grassley allowed these interruptions to occur and highjack the meeting was the first disgrace, but I don’t wish to spend my time on this. What I want to point out is the misbehavior of the Democrats who were responsible for the disruption.

It is not disputed that Democrats are the party of the left and a bastion of LGBTQ “rights” and their deviant agendas.  If there is one main reason why Democrats despise Trump, I believe it is because they see him as a threat to LGBTQ “rights” and the astonishing advancements they enjoyed under the corrupt presidency of Obama.

But there is a far more insidious side to the “resistant tactics” that Democrats have so effectively employed in thwarting the populist agenda American voters demanded when they swept Trump into office in his unprecedented win:  the fascist character of their tactics.

One of the hallmarks of the United States since its founding was the desire to discuss divisive issues in venues of respect and tolerance, epitomized through the First Amendment.  This ideal is nicely captured in the University of Chicago’s statement on free speech, commonly referred to as the “Chicago Statement.”  Some parts read:

“…the ideas of different members of the University community will often and quite naturally conflict. But it is not the proper role of the University to attempt to shield individuals from ideas and opinions they find unwelcome, disagreeable, or even deeply offensive. Although the University greatly values civility, and although all members of the University community share in the responsibility for maintaining a climate of mutual respect, concerns about civility and mutual respect can never be used as a justification for closing off discussion of ideas, however offensive or disagreeable those ideas may be to some members of our community.

“…Although members of the University community are free to criticize and contest the views expressed on campus, and to criticize and contest speakers who are invited to express their views on campus, they may not obstruct or otherwise interfere with the freedom of others to express views they reject or even loathe. To this end, the University has a solemn responsibility not only to promote a lively and fearless freedom of debate and deliberation, but also to protect that freedom when others attempt to restrict it.”

The document can be found here and is well worth reading:

The danger which many Democrats pose to this nation is their desire to stifle and silence—even punish—speech and ideas that go against their core values:  abortion, same-sex “marriage,” LGBTQ “rights,” etc.  All of their noble talk of “tolerance” and “inclusion” is nothing more than hypocrisy clothed in lofty ideals that they themselves despise:  for Democrats, tolerance is demanded from everyone for their agenda but is never reciprocated.   For proof of this, look no further than the case of Jack Phillips, the Christian baker who refused to bake a same-sex wedding cake for a gay couple.

The immediate interruption by Democrat Kamala Harris, followed by further disruptions from her colleagues and screams from the audience, is further proof of their hatred for the concept of civil, respectful government conducted in an atmosphere of mutual give and take, reasoned debate, and civil discourse.

This disrespectful behavior is simply the scales seen on the dark underbelly of the fascist beast that lurks and lies at the foundation of the “deep state” that rules much of both the state and federal governments.  Their childish antics are simply the tip of the iceberg of a belief system that is far uglier and dangerous than what we see in this fiasco.

A little known and rarely discussed fact concerns the roots of the Nazi party.  Many have no idea the role that homosexuals played in the founding of Hitler’s Third Reich.

Here is prior blog post I made on this subject:

http://royspearsblog.com/?page_id=992

Did the Nazi’s mass murder homosexuals in death camps?

In this blog, I introduce my reader’s to the ground breaking book, “The Pink Swastika,” which goes into great detail about the founding of the Nazi Party.  The details are nothing short of astonishing.

We see similar tactics even now occurring in the Democratic Party and the role they and leftist progressives play on our university and college campuses.  There is a direct correlation between the crumbling of our First Amendment rights in this country and the one party sworn to advance and uphold the perverse LGBTQ agenda.

And if anyone thinks it is bad now, we have seen nothing yet.  Wait until the Dems regain the presidency and control of the federal government; it is certain to happen and the darkness already suffocating this once great nation will tighten its death grip and we may breathe our last.

 

A hug from a little boy can brighten up your day

Something unusual and unexpected just happened to me:

I was dropping off an order for a customer at a nearby UPS store. Placing the package on the scale, I waited while the UPS employee, a young woman, gave me my receipt.

After she hands it to me and I’m about to turn to leave, a cherub faced, curly haired two year old little boy comes racing out of the back. He rushes up to me with his arms outstretched, wanting a hug.

I was dumbfounded, completely taken by surprise. I thought, “He must think I’m someone else” as I stood there, motionless, feeling a bit embarrassed by the whole scene. He stayed in front of me, his arms still out for his hug.

Realizing the woman who just handed me my receipt was his mom, I said to her, “Very friendly!” and reached down and gave the boy a hug.

Now, I’m a man, and situations like this leave men a bit uncomfortable, especially in a scenario like this one. I did not know the mom or her son, and because the situation just sprang up out of nowhere, I was not prepared for it.

As I jumped into my truck after exiting the store, I was moved by what this precious little boy did. I have three daughters, all long grown and separated by time and unfortunate circumstances; I can’t remember the last time I was hugged like that by a small, innocent child.

When I arrived home, I called that UPS store to thank the mom and share with her how touched I was by her son’s spontaneous, selfless act. She said she was worried about my reaction, but when I explained how moved and thankful I was, she expressed relief, gratitude and joy that her son could be the means of brightening someone’s day.

I thank the Lord for that curly haired little boy who gave me such an unexpected gift this morning that touched my soul and warmed my heart. With all the hatred, anger, suspicion and division that we face in this country seemingly every day, this random and “out of the blue” interaction with an innocent child was wonderful.

Did the Nazi’s mass murder homosexuals in death camps?

I’ve been fascinated by WW2 for decades and heard that Hitler instituted a “gay holocaust” against countless homosexuals.

Upon closer examination, this is a myth.

Like much of gay revisionism that seeks to perpetually cast homosexuals as helpless victims continually in need of protection, the carefully choreographed legend that homosexuals were special targets of Nazi brutality dissipates under careful scholarship.

In fact, contrary to the prevailing narrative that the ranks of the Nazi’s were dominated by “men’s men” (masculine, manly, straight, the Clint Eastwood type as portrayed in his movies), many of Hitler’s henchmen—and this  applies to Hitler himself—were sodomites.

I’m not saying these soldiers lacked bravery or were not formidable foes on the battlefield; for the most part, they were loyal, accomplished men of war whose commitment to Germany and exploits on the battlefield were exemplary in many instances.

But many of them were also cruel and sadistic, modern barbarians who were responsible for some of the most heinous crimes against humanity known in the history of mankind.

Few people are aware that the Nazi party was founded primarily by active homosexuals; it is disputed whether or not Hitler himself was a practicing homosexual, especially during the time before he rose to power in Germany.

That both Hitler and many in his Nazi party were homosexuals is not a fact members of the LGBTQ community desire to have promulgated; such facts do not bode well for their agenda of normalizing—even glorifying—the nefarious “sin against nature” from sea to shining sea in the United States.

For those interested in this topic, I will include a link to the excellent book, “The Pink Swastika” by Scott Lively and Kevin Abrams.  Here is a link to a website where you can download much of the book—the 4th edition—for free.

Here is the chapter which debunks the myth that homosexuals were murdered/incarcerated/tortured en masse in death camps.

Here it is on Amazon.

A well researched book as explosive as this  will have its share of critics; facts presented here throws cold water on the false narratives constantly pushed by the LGBTQ revisionists seeking to normalize sexual deviancy.

Those familiar with the tactics of the LGBTQ movement to discredit, ridicule, defame and spread falsehoods against anyone brave enough to publicly expose their immoral agenda should be aware that their tried and proven smear tactics have gone into overdrive to discredit the “Pink Swastika.”

For example, from a Wikipedia article:

“The book, in which the authors argue that homosexuality in the Nazi Party contributed to the extreme militarism of Nazi Germany, has been widely debunked and drawn extensive criticism from historians.”

Interestingly, the reference that Wikipedia uses to support this allegation is from an article in the apparently pro-gay news outlet called “Boston Magazine.”  This article then references another article from the Advocate,  a well known cheerleader for all things gay—hardly a non-biased source—that supposedly “thoroughly debunked” Lively and Abrams book.

Lively counters with this statement:

“Since we first published this exhaustively documented history book in 1995 we’ve challenged all critics to debate the facts in any neutral unedited forum but never had a single taker.  And in 23 years of fake news coverage of the book, not a single liberal ‘journalist’ has ever accepted our challenge to actually fact-check it point by point and report their findings to the public.”  

What comes from this back and forth debate on whether or not the “Pink Swastika” is “fake history” or not is to read it yourself, check out its abundant references, and make your own decision.

 

Should we share the Gospel at “Gay Pride” parades?

Imagine for a moment that you lived, like Lot and his family, in ancient Sodom (Genesis 19).  Unbeknownst to you, in five days your town would be reduced to a burning, sulfurous and uninhabitable ash heap.

Would it please God if you were to spend your last few days sharing Jesus with your fellow townsmen?  Would your efforts at evangelizing these violent homosexuals be biblical?

I believe most Christians reading this post might be outraged that I would ask questions they consider bordering on blasphemy.  After all, they might reason, does not God command us to share the Gospel with every creature on Earth (Mark 16:15)?

At one time I would have agreed with those holding to the position that God wants us to share the Gospel with every single human on Earth.

I don’t believe that any longer.

What changed my mind?  Matthew 7:6:  “Do not give dogs what is holy, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, lest they trample them underfoot and turn to attack you.” (ESV)

Though I had read this verse many times over the decades that I have been a Christian and sharing the Gospel with whoever I could, it was not until I listened to a sermon by Rolfe Barnard several years ago that my mind was changed.

Barnard died in 1969.  I have listened to many of his sermons online.  The one that changed my thinking is here.  And there is one particular story Barnard tells in this sermon that perhaps did more than anything to shape and mold the way I think today.  It starts at 48:22 and goes to about 55:00.

Rolfe Barnard

I believe this is a “must listen to” sermon for everyone active in a soul-winning and evangelistic ministry.  It will change your thinking if you are open to its message.  But be prepared to be challenged in ways you might not expect.

Barnard can be difficult to listen to because he has an unfortunate quirk in his preaching:  he often shouts, occasionally producing ear-splitting screams that might puncture your eardrums if you are wearing headphones.

Outside of this annoying defeat, I have learned much from this old saint and have been blessed by his teachings.  Do I agree with everything Barnard teaches?  No, but you don’t have to agree with everything someone teaches; he has more gold than chaff.

Believing as Barnard does is a revolutionary and seismic shift in the belief system of your typical Evangelical believer.

Which brings me back to the title of this post:  “Should we share the Gospel at ‘Gay Pride’ parades?”  I say “no.”

There are several reasons why I don’t believe we should share the gospel at LGBTQ events.

First, it is critical how you view the Gospel.  Do you see it as a precious gem, something so infinitely fine and valuable that you would not dream of casting such a jewel into the muddy, filthy and disgusting mire of a pigsty?

Perhaps you are offended by my comparing a gay pride parade to a pigsty, but for anyone who has either attended your typical pride parade or seen pictures of what happens there, the reference is accurate.

I need to define what I mean by “sharing the Gospel.”  In a nutshell, this is offering Jesus as follows:

“Friends, the Bible tells us that ‘God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.’

“The Bible also tells us that there is none righteous, not even one, that all of us have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.

“We are all sinners in the eyes of God, but because of what Jesus did on the cross two thousand years ago, shedding His holy and innocent blood for you and I, we can be forgiven and receive the gift of eternal life.

“Come to Jesus, friends!  He will give you new life, come into your heart and make it clean, wiping away all of your sins.”

I know there is infinitely more to the Gospel than this, but I’m trying to be brief.  When we “preach the Gospel,” we are offering to sinners the the path of forgiveness through the shed blood of our Lord.  And this is the message I believe we should not offer to unrepentant sodomites proudly parading themselves in their lusts and debauchery at your typical gay pride event.

Have you been to gay pride events or watched videos on Youtube about them?  Have you seen two men or two women french kiss each other and/or engage in other types of lewd behavior?  Or heard the hateful, vile and blasphemous language and curses out of their mouths against the very Jesus you are offering to them?

What did Jesus do when the people in a particular town asked Him to leave (Mark 5:1-20)?  Did He stay, against their clearly stated wishes, because He knew they needed to receive the very message they had no interest in hearing?  Why do we think we know better than what the Lord does?

When we do this, we are casting the precious pearl of the Gospel before the feet of pigs.  This is in direct opposition to the clear commandment of Jesus not to do this, as Barnard so eloquently and forcibly presents in his convicting sermon.

You have heard, no doubt, this saying:  “Law to the proud, grace to the humble.”  If anything, those who feel led and compelled to preach at gay pride events should be giving these proud sinners the law and not the gospel.  To share anything else except the fact that their horrific sin is leading them straight to hell and judgment is, in my opinion, doing the exact opposite of Matthew 7:6.  And we will be held personally accountable for this disobedience.

But back to living in Sodom five days before the Lord rained fire and brimstone upon its inhabitants.  Can you imagine what that wicked town must have looked like?  A San Francisco Gay Pride event at its worst, but on steroids times a factor of 100.

Those people despised the God of the Bible, reveling in their wickedness and sexual perversion.  No doubt Lot tried to tell these vile sodomites about the God he worshipped, but they were not interested in the least in his message.

 

The Supreme Court rules in favor of Christian baker

Like most Christians, I rejoice that the Supreme Court rightly decided for the Christian baker.

But the problem remains the same: why does this country look to unelected lawyers in black robes to determine what is right and wrong? Who are they to tell anyone whether or not they can refuse to bake a cake for someone whose message they find offensive to their sincerely held religious beliefs?

Antonin Scalia, in his dissent in the infamous Obergefell v Hodges ruling legalizing “same sex” marriage, wrote:

“…So it is not of special importance to me what the law says about marriage. It is of overwhelming importance, however, who it is that rules me. Today’s decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court. The opinion in these cases is the furthest extension in fact—and the furthest extension one can even imagine—of the Court’s claimed power to create “liberties” that the Constitution and its Amendments neglect to mention. This practice of constitutional revision by an unelected committee of nine, always accompanied (as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty, robs the People of the most important liberty they asserted in the Declaration of Independence and won in the Revolution of 1776: the freedom to govern themselves.”

To give nine elected and unaccountable lawyers the power to decide such issues is what has helped plunge this country into the abyss of moral relativism and wickedness. While we rejoice in this ruling, we mourn the others legalizing abortion, sodomy based “marriage,” the posting of the 10 commandments made illegal in public schools, etc.

Never did our founding fathers intend for the Supreme Court of the United States to usurp and supplant the will of the people expressed through laws made by our elected representatives. That we wring our hands in anticipation of how the “Supreme Court will rule” on issues of national importance shows how far we have sunk as a republic.

UPDATE ON UA LAWSUIT: ALL DEFENDANTS SERVED!

Today, June 6, 2018, the last of the six defendants was served with my Complaint.  This step is crucial because these six defendants, by law, must be put on notice that a lawsuit has been initiated against them.

As in any lawsuit, there are certain time parameters that must be followed.  In my case, I had 90 days after I filed my initial Complaint (which I did on March 8, 2018) to serve all the defendants or the suit would be dismissed.

Now, all of the six defendants named in my lawsuit have received a copy of my Complaint within the statutory time limit set by the rules.  This means my suit goes forward; the next move will be for each of the defendants to respond.

Follow the Money (Part Two)

On Facebook today, I stumbled upon a post that linked to this story about Jesse Duplantis:

I first saw Duplantis many years ago and immediately this man made my skin crawl.  Back then, he made himself out to be some kind of Christian comedian, but the words that came out of his irreverent mouth instantly showed me he was simply another, typical, run of the mill, dime a two-dozen, phony evangelical huckster out to fleece the flock of God for—you guessed it—money.

Duplantis’ true god is not the God of the Old and New Testaments but the number one false god of America:  the greenback.  If huckster’s like Duplantis could make the same money off of the name of, say, Satan, you can rest assure he would switch in an instant.

But the equally amazing and sad aspect of this story is that this phony is in business and stays in business because of only one reason:  God’s people.  They are the one’s reaching ever deeper into their pocketbooks to fund his extravagant lifestyle.

Remember what I wrote in part one of my previous post?  “Follow the money.”  This is, in a nutshell, all one needs to determine the methods and madness of so much of what passes for “Christianity” in America.

Why do Christians support this buffoon, this false teacher and blasphemer?  What is it about this fool that is so appealing to people that, not only do they support him, but give him hundreds, even thousands, of their hard-earned dollars?

Men like Duplantis do not fear God.  I believe men and women who paddle around in the same foul swamp he does fall into one of two categories:  they either hate God with a passion or they don’t believe in Him at all.  No one who has an ounce of genuine love and fear of God could possibly conduct themselves in the manner in which these charlatans do.

I return to my original point for emphasis:  follow the money.  Understand that money is what drives these fakes, fuels their passions, and defines and guides their every move.  Their love and adoration of money is what causes them to wake up every morning, scheming of new scams to part the faithful with their hard-earned coin.

Let me tell you a true story from my own life:

When I was in my early late teens, early twenties, I met a young man a couple of years older.  Walking across a street one day in the crosswalk, on his way to church, he was struck by a car that threw him about 100 feet.  How he survived is one of those unexplained miracles of life.

In a body cast for almost a year, he was never able to walk again without the use of a cane or crutches.  He was in the peak prime of his life when he was struck.

Because he was legally crossing the street in a crosswalk and the driver (an elderly woman if memory serves me correctly) was 100% at fault, he received a huge settlement.  I never found out how much nor asked, but back then, in the late 70’s, it was probably close to a million dollars.

He lived an extravagant lifestyle, purchasing fancy cars, a nice truck, several homes, ate healthy foods, bought expensive guitars, etc.  And he was very generous to tele-evangelists, giving untold amounts of money to these con artists.

One of their “hooks” these crooks used to part my friend from his money was their teaching on divine healing.  One can understand how he would be particularly vulnerable to being flimflammed in this manner because he was struck down in the prime of his life and yearned to be restored to the abundant health he once enjoyed.

His money lasted almost three decades before he eventually spent every penny.  He is now on welfare and has been living on the taxpayer’s dime for years.

I never learned nor asked how many multiplied tens of thousands of dollars, perhaps over a hundred thousand dollars or more, he gave to these spiritual criminals.  All I know is that, slowly but surely, every single cent that he received from that hard-earned settlement disappeared.

Nor have I ever sat down with him and inquired how he feels about this, if whether or not he blames God for his own lack of wisdom and proper stewardship over the money he received and eventually squandered.  Such topics are difficult to bring up, even with friends.

Like so many situations in our lives, this one is like an onion, with many layers winding round and around the circumstances and decisions of our pilgrimage on this planet.  Did my friend give away a fair percentage of his fortune because he was bargaining with God, believing the tele-evangelist’s lie of the “thousand fold blessing”?

Was it out of selfishness that he sent countless checks in the money to these degenerates?  Through improper motives?  Only him and God knows, and people like myself, observing this train wreck from oftentimes close quarters, can only speculate as to why he threw away so much on absolutely nothing.

I write the following with no sense of pride, understanding that in this particular, narrow aspect of my life, I made a wise choice:  never was I taken in by these “Christian” crooks.  It was glaringly obvious to me, even as a babe in Christ surviving on milk, that these people were wolves in sheep’s clothing.  I would no sooner give them one dollar than I would toss a buck in the commode and flush it down the sewer.

Incredibly, millions of people don’t think like I do, and hopefully, like you do.  What is so obvious to me, like the sun shining in its glory on a cloudless summer afternoon, is that these people are villains in the truest sense of the word.  They are as guilty as Bernie Sanders and need to occupy a cell right along with him.

My friends story, though tragic, is not uncommon; it can be multiplied an endless amount of times.  Hopefully, none of my readers will end up in the poorhouse due to making similar unwise choices as my friend.

 

 

 

 

 

First Amendment lawsuit against UA ramps up

In 2017, I was arrested at the University of AZ and thrown in jail. My great crime? I refused to stop preaching at the annual Tucson Festival of Books while using my small, battery operated amplification system.

All around me, people were using far more powerful electrified amplification systems to sell their books, put on author presentations, perform music, etc. I was singled out specifically for censor because of my message: the importance and popularity of the Bible as the number one selling book in the world.

Many know what is happening to Christians and free speech on university campuses across the United States: both are being targeted for extinction…especially Christians. Our message, our morals, and our God are neither wanted nor tolerated.

I’m fighting back against this unjust arrest, having already filed a federal civil rights case three months ago. This has become the most complicated court case I have been involved in and will consume at least one to two years of my life on top of the year and a half I’ve already given to it.

But the stakes are huge. If I win, preachers in our ninth circuit will have strong ammunition on their side to also freely amplify the gospel message on university and college campuses, with certain commonsense restrictions.

Unfortunately, I could not find a Christian law firm interested in taking this case on a “pro bono” basis. This means they would take the case for free, but if I won, they would be paid, handsomely and in full, at settlement.

I had a law firm initially representing me, but after paying almost $2,000 in fees and receiving little if nothing in return, with the lawyer wanting thousands more, I decided to fight alone.

This week was critical. I served the Summons and First Amended Complaint on the five defendants at the UA responsible for my illegal arrest and incarceration. The other defendant, the AZ Board of Regents, who is responsible for the illegal actions of their rogue employees who arrested me, will be served on Monday.

It saddens me to realize how few Christians will fight for their blood bought rights won for us by our godly ancestors, rights that we are rapidly losing here in the United States. I made a decision decades ago that I would fight, and fight every step of the way, for every square inch of ground, no matter what it costs, how long it takes, or whether or not I ultimately prevail in the end.

It is not necessarily for winning why we fight, but that we will love our Lord and our faith enough that we will fight for Him and for His great cause and reputation. We fight because it is the right thing to do and it is part and parcel of being a soldier for Christ and fulfilling our role as men.

When all is said and done, it is an honor and a privilege, no matter if I win or lose, to fight for my King and my God.

The video below was from the 2012 Festival. I did not get arrested then because I agreed to shut off my amplification system. At this point, in 2012, I did not have the knowledge of first amendment law dealing specifically with amplification in public areas as I did when I was arrested in 2017. This video will show what I am up against:

The Great Evil of the World Mission Society Church of God

My latest video on the “World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG)” (also known as the “Elohim Academy”) is now on Youtube:

It was online for about two weeks before someone reported it to YouTube alleging it was “hate speech.”  And Youtube, being the politically correct, God hating organization that it is, listened to what this person or persons complained about and placed the video on “restrictive mode.”

When you try and watch the video, you will see a warning screen that reads:  “The following content has been identified by the YouTube community as inappropriate or offensive to some audiences.”

Directly underneath this message is another message that reads, “I understand and wish to proceed.”  By clicking on this, you can now watch the video.

What does it mean when someone’s video is placed on restricted mode?  By scrolling down on the video page, you will see a greyed out box that reads, “Certain features have been disabled for this video.”  Clicking on “Learn More” will direct you to another YouTube page that says, in part:

“Our Community Guidelines prohibit hate speech that either promotes violence or has the primary purpose of inciting hatred against individuals or groups based on certain attributes. YouTube also prohibits content intended to recruit for terrorist organizations, incite violence, celebrate terrorist attacks, or otherwise promote acts of terrorism. Some borderline videos, such as those containing inflammatory religious or supremacist content without a direct call to violence or a primary purpose of inciting hatred, may not cross these lines for removal. Following user reports, if our review teams determine that a video is borderline under our policies, it may have some features disabled.”

(Update:  as of May 27, 2018, the “restricted mode” on this video has been lifted and its status returned to normal.  Click here to read details.)

Clearly, at least one member of the WMSCOG took offense at what he or she saw and reported it to YouTube as being “hate speech.”  YouTube then reviewed it and agreed with the complainer that it was guilty as charged.

YouTube’s reaction, of course, was ridiculous; once you watch the video you will agree.  They allow someone whose video has been put in this restrictive mode to appeal their decision, which I did.  I wrote:

“My video does not, in any way, encourage or condone violence.  In fact, beginning at timestamp 8:09, I clearly say that I’m NOT advocating violence against the group who is the subject of this video; I’m only reporting on what the Old Testament penalty was for people who led others into idolatry.

Please listen to the above portion of this video so you can hear for yourself.  Thank you.”

There are several problems with YouTube’s knee-jerk reaction, but I want to concentrate on why the WMSCOG reported my video in the first place.

This is not the first time that the WMSCOG has complained about one of my videos; in fact, one of my earlier videos was removed from my channel after another one of their members complained.

Why did YouTube remove my video?

To answer this, allow me to give you a little known piece of information on this cult:  they don’t like being videoed in public.  And when they are, if the footage is uploaded to YouTube, they will complain to YouTube saying that the person who shot the video failed to obtain their permission to record them in public.

Though I don’t know all the details on how or why YouTube handles these kind of “complaints,” they will remove the video.  Again, I could comment on this foolishness on the part of YouTube, but I wish to stay on point with discussing the paranoia of the WMSCOG.  Perhaps later I will address these anti-free speech problems with YouTube.

This video that the WMSCOG complained about was filmed on the campus of the University of AZ in Tucson.  Several members of this cult (known as the “Elohim Academy” on campus) were walking around seeking to recruit people.  I was on campus talking with some students when I saw these cult members walking around.

I knew what they were up to and we approached them to dialogue. I had my GoPro running and recorded the entire conversation.  Later, I uploaded it to YouTube.   It was reported within a short amount of time and removed in its entirety by YouTube.

I knew that the WMSCOG had problems, but this was a new one to me and I began figuring out that these cult members and their leadership were paranoid about being videoed in public and then having these interactions posted for all the world to see.

Another item of interest about this cult that many people do not know is that they are media savvy.  They have many videos on YouTube and have learned things about YouTube that many people don’t know—including myself.  Specifically, they have learned how to make complaints to YouTube in such a way that many videos that show them in a negative light are removed.

As of today’s date (May 26, 2018), I have yet to determine why the WMSCOG are so paranoid about being videoed in public.  If any of my readers can provide the answer, I would appreciate it.

Though I don’t know this for certain, I believe certain members of the WMSCOG prowl the Internet searching for any content—especially video—that exposes their dark underbelly and true motives.  And if they find such content, they do all they can to have it removed by reporting it, like they have done to mine.

If you spend any amount of time following this cult, you will quickly learn that they are obsessed with their public image.  They go to any lengths to appear in public as upstanding members of society intent on doing good works, with a heavy emphasis on their members always smiling and looking happy and innocent.

It is all a carefully choreographed lie and deception.

They know that nothing can sink a ship faster than bad or negative press; this is one reason why they go to any lengths to have true but unflattering videos about them removed asap.

After having dealt with this cult for about six or seven years, I become more familiar with how they run their operation.  And let me assure you, as the old saying goes, “All that glitters is not gold.”

This group is evil.  Their leadership is a cabal of con-artists whose two of their gods are money and power.  The main reason for their entire existence is—you guessed it—money.  Lots and lots of money.  And how they obtain this money is by deceiving people into committing to their weekly meetings, becoming members, and all for one main purpose:  dropping money into the offering basket when it passes by your face.

They have ruined countless lives, divided husbands from their wives and vice-versa.  They have divided children from their parents and parents from their children.  And the greatest of all their acts of wickedness and depravity is their leading their members into the greatest of all sins:  idolatry.

If you have been deceived by this group and have fallen under their control, you must break free and flee from them.  Your very soul is in danger of being eternally lost.

My advice to you is this:  like Lot, flee from them without looking back (Genesis 19:16-17).  Don’t make the same disastrous mistake as Lot’s wife and “look back”:  you must flee and never look behind you.  Don’t call or text them explaining why you are leaving…just leave.

And don’t answer their calls or their texts when they start trying to contact you, wondering where you are and why you are no longer coming to the meetings; this is part of their strategy to rope you back in.

Find a trusted friend (and not anyone who is a member of this group) you can go to and ask advice from.  Hopefully, this friend will be a Christian who loves the Lord and is obeying His commandments.

I would love to talk with you.  Again, drop me a comment in one of my videos and we will get in contact.  We will figure out a way to exchange contact information without the WMSCOG knowing about it.
