The Liberty Counsel’s “Awakening” event certainly had no shortage of crazy preachers to speak and warn of the doom that is about to befall America. One such pastor was Ken Graves of Bangor, Maine. Pastor Graves, as so many people of his ilk are doing these days, was full of hellfire, brimstone, and most of all, fear-mongering when he spoke to the audience of conservative Christians.
Graves warned of the evils of homosexuality, atheism, and Islam, saying that the country is soon to be taken over by “militant homofascism,” thanks to the rise of progressive values. According to Graves, this supposed “homofascism” “seeks to take over our land and make it Sodom.”
Amazing how it always goes back to what these people feel to be sexual sin, doesn’t it? Repression is no good for you, Pastor Graves. You really should do something about that.
Graves ranted on, becoming more and more agitated and warning his listeners that progressives are in bed with militant Islam, and the goal is to “destroy everything we have” and set up a “secular humanist caliphate” in place of our current society. Of course, this is ignoring the fact that there is nothing progressive about militant Islam, and there’s no way that atheists, secular humanists, or other unfaithful types would want anything to with its tenets becoming the law of the land.
But, of course, Graves has God on his side, so all will be well. Referencing the “Seven Mountains” doctrine, the good pastor whipped out a Bible and shouted in conclusion after all of his doomsday warnings:
“Why should we be intimidated if what has been placed in our hands is the very word of God?”
Well, I guess that settles it then, Pastor Graves. Just so long as you believe that your holy book is law, everything will be a-okay for the folks on your side of the aisle. Of course, if you really believed that, you wouldn’t need to warn a megachurch full of people about how people who don’t agree with you are ruining America. All I can say is that it’s a good thing that no sane people were in your audience, and no sane people will vote for any politician who aligns him or herself with the likes of you.
