|Apparently, my article "Reclaiming
America for Whom?" upset quite a few evangelical fans of
D. James Kennedy and his Reclaiming America for Christ conference. Perhaps
they should be a bit more upset with Dr. Kennedy and his RAC sidekick Dr.
Gary Cass for promoting their Roman Catholic conference speakers, such as
"Fr." Frank Pavone, as Christians "engaging the
culture for Christ" and "on the leading edge of Christian
For those blind fans of their blind
leaders, below you will find a couple of pictures of RAC headline speaker
Pavone worshiping a Romanist wafer in front of an abominable, pagan idol
said to be our Lord on the cross. This is called "celebrating the
mass" and includes the priest "immolating" the Lord of
glory in a "bloodless sacrifice" after turning Him into a wafer
and a cup of wine. Of course, I suppose next I will hear that since
Pavone didn't celebrate the mass in Kennedy's church during the
conference, I am making much to-do about nothing. And besides, isn't the
mass just one of those "doctrinal distinctives" we are
supposed to ignore for the good of the pro-life/pro-family cause?
By the way, a post conference article
posted on the RAC web site gives a rave review of Pavone's speech in
Kennedy's Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church during that conference. (Coral
Ridge Ministries is the parent organization of Reclaiming America for
Christ.) And in an amazing example of the "strong delusion"
which is setting in among evangelicals in America, the article ended with
this self-contradictory -- or should we say self-condemning -- report
of the closing message of the March 2-3 Reclaiming America for Christ
conference: "Coral Ridge Ministries Executive Vice President Brian
Fisher cautioned the crowd against activism divorced from knowledge of the
Word of God. Citing statistics from the likes of George Barna, Fisher
impressed upon the conference to take seriously the study of the Word, the
teaching of the Word, and the living out of the Word, before all
