Gestapo Tactics against American Churches

In a previous article on GodfatherPolitics, I pointed out that leftist groups are attacking churches that address social issues that are near and dear to liberals. These groups monitor broadcasts, websites, and sermons of Christian leaders that address any topic that is critical of a leftist agenda. We’ve seen these types of tactics in Europe, England, and Canada. They’re coming to America, even though we have a set of iron-clad freedoms in the First Amendment. But if the Supreme Court can find a right to kill pre-born babies in the “shadows” of the Constitution, then no freedom is safe.

There is a long history of religious intimidation. Using Nazi Germany as an example for anything these days is often viewed as extremism. Even so, the comparisons are there, and we shouldn‘t be afraid to make them when we see them.

When German anti-Nazi theologian and Lutheran pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) used his pulpit to expose Adolf Hitler’s radical politics, “He knew every word spoken was reported by Nazi spies and secret agents.”[1] Leo Stein describes in his book I Was in Hell with Niemoeller how the Gestapo gathered evidence against Niemoeller:

Now, the charge against Niemoeller was based entirely on his sermons, which the Gestapo agents had taken down stenographically. But in none of his sermons did Pastor Niemoeller exhort his congregation to overthrow the Nazi regime. He merely raised his voice against some of the Nazi policies, particularly the policy directed against the Church. He had even refrained from criticizing the Nazi government itself or any of its personnel. Under the former government his sermons would have been construed only as an exercise of the right of free speech. Now, however, written laws, no matter how explicitly they were worded, were subjected to the interpretation of the judges.[2]

In a June 27, 1937 sermon, Niemoeller made it clear to those in attendance had a sacred duty to speak out on the evils of the Nazi regime no matter what the consequences: “We have no more thought of using our own powers to escape the arm of the authorities than had the Apostles of old. No more are we ready to keep silent at man’s behest when God commands us to speak. For it is, and must remain, the case that we must obey God rather than man.”[3] A few days later, he was arrested. His crime? “Abuse of the pulpit.”

The “Special Courts” set up by the Nazis made claims against pastors who spoke out against Hitler’s policies. Niemoeller was not the only one singled out by the Gestapo. “Some 807 other pastors and leading laymen of the ‘Confessional Church’ were arrested in 1937, and hundreds more in the next couple of years.”[4] A group of Confessional Churches in Germany, founded by Pastor Niemoeller and other Protestant ministers, drew up a proclamation to confront the political changes taking place in Germany that threatened the people “with a deadly danger. The danger lies in a new religion,” the proclamation declared. “The church has by order of its Master to see to it that in our people Christ is given the honor that is proper to the Judge of the world . . . The First Commandment says ‘Thou shalt have no other gods before me.’ The new religion is a rejection of the First Commandment.”[5] Five hundred pastors who read the proclamation from their pulpits were arrested.

The First Amendment protects pastors who speak out on today’s moral issues: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” The other four freedoms — speech, press, assembly, and petition—should not be separated from the first freedom. This amendment is so clear in its language, logic, and history that groups like Americans United for Separation of Church and State and the American Civil Liberties Union repeatedly misstate it or ignore its specific and easily understood language. If enough churches stood firm on these freedoms and called these organizations’ bluff by refusing to be intimidated and daring them to take them to court, the IRS’s bullying tactics would fail.

Writing his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” in 1963, the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., a liberal icon for so many on the political left, based his refusal to follow certain man-made laws on the claim that they were a violation of the permanent nature of the moral law. He further supported his argument by an appeal to the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, and the Bible:

We have waited for more than three hundred and forty years for our constitutional and God-given rights.

A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of Saint Thomas Aquinas, an unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal and natural law.

Of course, there is nothing new about this kind of civil disobedience. It was seen sublimely in the refusal of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego to obey the laws of Nebuchadnezzar because a higher moral law was involved. It was practiced superbly by the early Christians who were willing to face hungry lions and the excruciating pain of chopping blocks, before submitting to certain unjust laws of the Roman empire.

I’m grateful to God that, through the Negro church, the dimension of nonviolence entered our struggle.

It was “through the Negro church” that the struggle for civil rights became a reality. How can moral wrongs ever be made right if the very people who are protesting these moral wrongs are silenced in terms of laws that were written and are being enforced by unelected bureaucrats? David L. Lewis, in his biography of King, sums up the argument: “Finally, [King] reminded his fellow ministers that the laws of Hitler’s Reich had been ‘legal.’”[6] If officials at the IRS were to apply their Gestapo tactics retroactively, they would have issued a press release commending the “Special Courts” in Germany for taking action against activist pastors who used their pulpits for “political purposes.”

William Shirer paints a depressing picture of the state of the Christian church in 1938. “Not many Germans lost much sleep over the arrests of a few thousand pastors and priests.”[7]

The time to stop the intimidation is now before we are silenced forever!

    This article fails to mention that these same priest and other men of the cloth were incarcerated and suffered the same fate as the 6 million Jews who were sent to extermination camps because of their faith!

    • Richard

      Niemoeller was not a priest. Although he was arrested and spent about 7 years in prison, he was not executed. He was freed after the war.

      • Ron

        Niemoeller was a Lutheran Pastor.

      Yes Neimuller was a Lutheran, but many others were Christians of other sorts that were also murdered along with the Jews, including priests. That was the point of oldgringo.

      • ChillaKilla

        True dat! Most of the clerics and religious (among them thousands of nuns) who died in concentration camps were CATHOLIC. Except for a couple of notable lutheran pastors like Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Friedrich Niemoller, the great majority of protestants in Germany kept safely quiet or acquiesced with Hitler's policies.
        Oh wait... there were a few jehova witnesses who were also carted off to concentration camps, but they had their usual whacked-out reasons for objecting to Nazis.

      Winston, it is true that a portion of mankind will be controlled by Satan and they are called liberals. They may not be aware of it but I think God because of free allowed this to happen because of His plan. We all know that God's Will will be done. So long as we stay close to Him regardless of what happens we are going to win. Everything in the Bible will occur as prophesied -- none of us can change it. But at least WE know what's going on; unforunately for the liberals they are not in the hands of the divine.

  • John G.

    It is the Last Time, and the battle between the true God (Jehovah, Jesus, Holy Spirit), and Satan (through his faithful slaves) is heating up. The true church is now the only force hindering the complete victory of the forces of evil on this planet. Satan has almost reached his goal a few times in the past (Noah's day, Esther's time, and when Herod tried to kill Jesus), but he has always lost, and will ultimately lose and go into the Lake of Fire. We followers of the Christ must never waver, no matter what happens. Ultimately, we will have victory and will reign with Jesus Christ forever.

    • Charlotte

      John, liberals go to church, however their will is not really to serve God because what they believe in outside the church supercedes what the church tells them. We WILL have victory in the end as you say.

    • Ruth

      I agree that the true body of Christ need to stand strong, even in the face of death. There will be many who fall away for they were never true believers.

    We are witnessing an offensive by a small but determined group of people who wish to banish God from public life, because THEY don't want to be bound by the rules God imposes on human behavior. The rising tide of corruption in our society, the drastic decline in moral standards and the increasing vulgarization of the popular culture are all closly related to the attempt to silence God's voice in human affairs.
    Liberals deny God because they do not want to give conscience to their murder of the unborn, their decadence and debauchery.

    • dulceb

      You have hit the nail on the head. You cannot even speak or converse with some of these radicals.
      They do not want anyone to say that what they do id wrong on a moral basis. They think if they say it is alright enough with many voices, it will be the right thing to do.
      You can dress evil up in velvet and furs and call it holy, but it is still evil.

    • Juris Doctor

      Sound a lot like Rome 1900 years ago, and we see what happen to the roman impire. If We the People don't stand up NOW there won't be and America left to fight for. The EVIL that is moving across this Nation is almost unbelieveable. Satan has to have direct control of the Democratic Party to promote this ever present EVIL coming out this group of People. I see the Tea Party and Groups like tem, as a group of people, mostly the middle class, being prompted by the Holy Spirit to rise up and take back this Country from the EVIL Liberal/Nazi/Communist/Homosexual movement. Even if we have to have another Civil War. But this time it won't be against Black Slavery it will be against the enslavement of all the American People to the Governemt/Liberal/Nazi/Communist/Homosexuals forcing this VERY EVIL AGENDA down the Good Chirstian Americans throats. God Bless American.

    Also, Daniel chose to disobey a law of King Darius and go to the lion's den which had hungry, man eating lions in it.

    This is done by one of the worst offenders of our laws and they are the American Civil Liberty Union law firms which is loaded with Atheist's - Socialist's and Communist's that work to ban anything to do with religion except there own cults so this law firm is filled with many Jim Jones that would give you a glass of Cool Aide that will put you to sleep permanently. There are to many groups of people like the Closet Muslim the SOB Barrack Obama that will make any other religion other than the Muslim cult legal. If he were to get reelected you would start seeing more pressure on any religion other than the Muslim Brotherhood cult and began to ban any other religion.

    • Charlotte

      Larry, the liberals do not realize that what they are for is actually what happened behind the iron country.What they stand for is complete opposite of God's way. Isn't it ironic that a handful of people in the ACLU could be used by Satan to turn this world into his world. But as I said, God is allowing it to happen because it's part of His divine plan.

And frankly, having read the end of the Book, their god's butt is going to get kicked again but this time for all time.

  • liesofpeace

    It's the blind leading the blind, how sad. The road to hell is broad, the road to Heaven is straight and narrow, that should tell believers what to expect, that many, many, unbelievers will be crowding theirselves down that broad road to hell, and they chose this road on their own, Living in America tells me that everyone has been introduce to Jesus one time or another, so when they arrive there will be no excuses. They may feel that they have won, but in the end, when it's their turn to give an account of their life in front of the Holy Spirit, then they will find out who they have been serving all their life, I wonder if they will be surprise when they arrive at their permanent home?

  • Rory T.

    There were about 2500 Catholic Priests rounded up an put in Nazi prison. About 1300 died. Today the liberals love to say the christian churches were guilty of not speaking up. Many critics like to over react and claim Pope Pius XII was 'Hitler's Pope' because he didn't order the priests to speak out at masses. That is because, very early in the conflict, any priest that took it upon himself to speak outwas already in prison. In Holland the Bishop recommended a diocese wide protest and the Nazis reacted by rounding up all the priests and Jews together. The Pope Pius XII saw the result of protest sermons and thus, went covert to help all possible. During the Nazi occupation of Rome 90% of the Roman Jews were hidden and cared for in Catholic Church property. See the movie 'The Scarlet and the black' staring Gregory Peck.
    Peace.

      TOM MYERS, The do understand it correctly. We are dealing with traitors after the likes of Benedict Arnold. There should be added to the constitution a provision that the President cannot sign and put into action ANY Executive Order unless both houses of Congress give it the OK by 75% of both houses. Further, that NO military action can be initiated without approval by both houses of Congress. Our Congress seems to be operating under U.N. Treaty Law over and above the Constitution.

    Scripture says, "The fool has said in his heart, 'There is no God.'" Quite simply, the people associated with the ACLU, Citizens for the Separation of Church and State, People for the American Way, The American Atheist Association, MoveOn.org, and others are "fools"! While there are many true believers in America today, and we are still a Christian nation in most of our values, the government has more or less "officially" turned away from God "in order not to offend anyone". Because America has turned away from God, He has simply removed His blessing from us. Therefore, unless there is a true national repentance which is very unlikely, this nation is going down! Count on it! His Word says so!

    The time has come for a second American Revolution. The communists and leftists must be stopped and removed from the land.

  • Budman

    I have noticed several instances where these tactics have been tried and failed after they initially made it through with a decision by a liberal judge only to be thrown out by a higher court. The problem is far too many liberal judges are trying to change the meaning or interpretation of the constitution. When a liberal judge continues to do this, he should be brought before judicial review and suspended or disbarred.
    Nothing is going to change until we put people in Congress and the White House who clearly understand this and write laws to stop these lawsuits and put the American Civil Liberties Union on the list of Socialist Organizations and not allowed to file a lawsuit since they are knowingly biased.

    Another example of Obama's parallels with the infamous totalitarians of our age.

    Here is another. A few days ago Gov.

After he torched their building Hitler disbanded the Reichstag (the legislative body) because he claimed Germany was in a state of emergency.

    I don't accept Gov. Perdue's "tongue in cheek" dismissal of her statements. Obama had her try the concept on the public. now very few are giving it any thought at all. don't be surprised f Obama tries to call of the Presidential elections next year.

    • Gregg Weber

      Let us assume for a moment that there is an election in 2012. President Obama wins a second term. Baring birth certificate or other reasons let us assume for a moment that he won in a close election. Do you trust that there was no liberal democrat fraud to produce that Obama win? In order for me to believe the results, 60% of the vote might not be good enough for me to trust that he really won. It should be so great that fraud could not be a factor.
      The problem with all this time and money that he has available is that it can be used to register many dead people. Between now and the 2012 election we must make sure only valid votes are cast.

    If the government wishes to stop politics from the pulpit, perhaps they should start with the Rev's Sharpton and Jackson! Go ahead, make an example of these upstart preachers with their divisive ideas of how government should act!

    These gentlemen certainly have made their political convictions publicly known for some time! When the other ministers will see how severely the government deals with Sharpton and Jackson, they surely will then remain silent!

    "For far too long we have repeatedly embarked on a predictable and endless pattern of confusion; because man will not heed the warnings of a benevolent and loving Master and thus must contend with an evil earthly one.

    We must all hold that freedom banner—and its requisite sacrifice—high. And so, history can continue to march forward and defend its timeline; but it is time that owns history, not the converse.

    Still, one unpredictable day the greatest timekeeper of all will give up His watch and return to dust that which is His; only then will the gentle and the vile find their justice at His feet. Would it be that all men find duty in righteousness and the preservation of the truth…perhaps today…surely tomorrow…but if not then…when?"~Jude Goss

    We have to draw the Maginot Line now or at the very least, soon; and our churches should lead the way. Whatever status they have...they MUST speak truth...God is listening!

    This is occurring while the US Government spends hundreds of millions of American tax dollars building and restoring Mosques in the Middle East. But the Obama Administration didn't inform you of that did they? More of Obama's transparent politics.

    I find it ironic that this article quoted King who was a communist ,drug user,that loved white women and orgies.Research it.This man was no more christian then the man in the moon and used this as another tool to subvert this country.I could say im the Pope.Does that make it so? Just because someone claims to be a follower of Christ doesnt make it so either.People need to start using some discernment.They will be known by the fruits they bear.A bad tree can not bear good fruit.Its that simple.This,for the most part, is a sham,for most churches today are apostate.

    Doesn't the raiding and fining of Bible studies seem like the sharia imposed tax on The People of the Book (Christians) that is called jizya? http://msmignoresit.blogspot.com/2011/09/appointe...

    I wonder if these cork sucking pukes realize how easy it is to thwart them. All it takes is passive resistance....just ignore them and do exactly as you please....and dare them to do anything about it. All it takes is the guts to do it....and maybe a small gun in one's pocket.

    Its just more mindless tea party idiocy. A fact-free paranoid fantasy about actions that aren't happening, can't happen and won't ever happen and intended solely to whip up the stupid with a ridiculous Nazi analogy. Dont y'all EVER get tired of being played for fools like this?

    America let one atheist woman remove prayer and Bible reading from our schools and the atheist have gone hog wild ever since. We should have acted then and declared America's Christian heritage and values. If you let the enemy have an inch they will take a million miles. Failure to stand up for Christ then has led to today and Christians are constantly on the defense. The Bible tells us that there will be a great falling away from Jesus in the last days. Well Folks...we're in the last days and America is wheezing for her last breath. Obama crowd is the last straw and America will be no more. So pucker up and kiss her goodbye folks, we lost the battle in the '60's.

    The Nazi blueprint is currently all over American politics especially in the field of eugenics (social engineering), the relentless nonsensical baseless social programs being belched out of the Oval Office is a classic example of what the Government thinks of the dumbed down American citizens. The veil of credibility is finally being lifted in DC and maybe just maybe we can clean house and restore America back to its former majestic self. TSA are the new "Brown Shirts", frisking the elderly and innocent little children to their delight, I'll start flying again when they fly TSA and Homeland Security on a one way ticket to Mongolia.

    Liberals are schizophrenic on the subject of Christianity and about their precious separation of church and state.
    They will do everything in their power to silence Christian beliefs that run counter to their agenda, IE abortion, homosexuality, but they will invoke the "What would Jesus do" argument if ever it should suit them, IE redistribution of wealth.

    The freedoms that I and millions of ww2 GI's and other wars fought for are now slowly going down the drain. The Dems and Obama's goverment are seeing to that more every day. I just hope and pray that the people both dems and reps will see this and put a stop to it. m We have had to many die for freedom to lose it now.

    The Church MUST stand UNITED, lest we watch its death. We must get off our bosom's and away from the tele-communications known as the tv and the pc. We must come together in person, united. Show Satan we will not, and Christ cannot be defeated. We must rise up and stare tyranny in the face. If we continue to cower we will surely perish.

    Martin Niemöller was not the only theologian to oppose Hitler; Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a Lutheran theologian involved in the assassination plots and for that he was eventually martyred. Bonhoeffer is one of my personal heroes because he stood up to evil and was willing to pay the ultimate price in order to do what was right. We need people like Neimoller and Bonhoeffer today.
