Christians Say the Darnedest Things: Satan Behind Protesters

michael brown

It’s no surprise that rioters in Portland burned Bibles this past weekend. As I’ve said for weeks now, the spirit behind the riots is the spirit of lawlessness. It is anti-God and anti-Christ, and that’s why synagogues and churches have also been targets.

When it comes to the Bible, for some, it is the ultimate symbol of oppression. Of religious tyranny. Of abusive authority.

It is the evil book on which America was founded, and it should be burned, along with the American flag. It is racist, homophobic and misogynist. It supports genocide and apartheid, and it the divinely sanctioned manual for slave owners. To the flames!

Such is the mentality of the radical left, as reflected in groups like antifa and Black Lives Matter (speaking, again, of the organization, in distinction from the truth that Black lives matter).


There is something else that is animating these rioters and, as we have argued before, it is not from above but from below. And, just as an ideological line can be traced from Saul Alinsky to the leadership of Black Lives Matter, an ideological line can be traced from Alinsky to Satan.


What we are seeing, then, in these riots, is ultimately an attempt to cast off the rulership of God. In the words of the rebellious kings in Psalm 2:3 (NIV) (speaking against the Lord and the Davidic monarch who ruled over them): “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.” We will not have God rule over us!

That’s why Bibles are being burned. It is an open expression of hostility to the Judeo-Christian God and Judeo-Christian values. It is the thumbing of the nose to divine authority. It is overt rebellion.

    Always ducking the real cause. No introspection. Burning the Bible is not the answer. Using the Bible against your oppressors is only part of the answer. Bringing an education to those oppressed areas is the answer. It would take a generation. Unfortunately, it would be done piece-meal and probably would only exacerbate the problem. We ourselves R simply not organized on the level of well “organized” religion. We think yelling loudly will solve everything. We need to have a little more introspection ourselves. Take a very hard, cold look at where we really R in opposition to “them”. We will find, in ourselves, many loose ends. We need to tie our own shoelaces first B4 challenging them to a race to dominate America. In comparison to them, make no mistake, we R still weekend “walkers” scuffling along in our floppies. We simply don’t have the gear to win this race.

    I have not found a legitimate source that the flag and Bible burning even happened there. Maybe someone has a source, but for now I’m calling Russian propaganda.

    Well, he isn’t wrong that the Bible is full of oppression and tyranny. He is wrong that the USA was founded on the Bible.

    Hi Bruce,

    Spaniard viii also has a post on this. He claims that groups like black lives matter and the Democrats support the murder of babies and that they are trying to change children into homosexuals and that they seek the destruction of the Christian scriptures. This guy is also another religious nutter.
