latest news in the week's top stories here on our t.v. what should have been a day of commemoration for a football fan and a bloody clashes as thousands riot in moscow when say. the exit polls in kosovo's first problem entry elects an election suggest the democratic party of kosovo and by the current prime minister has the lead but many observers say most of the serbian minority boycotted the ballot. winter of discontent europe rises up in protest over the wishing refusing financial hardship. next part two of our report on the rise of christian fundamentalism in the u.s. in the wake of the nine eleven attacks. warfare mythology.
for the advancement of religious ideology. is i feel highly inappropriate. because i thought from a place where warfare is very very real and has very real consequences. being an officer first to teach here. means that we understood that a very bad day could result in a nuclear holocaust. that's a reality that we live with every day and when you do live with that reality every day and you take some small part of responsibility for that and for trying to make sure that that doesn't happen every day then you become. i would say
rather put out with people who would trivialize these kinds of dire consequences for the world. in order to. a particular religious perspective. now from member station. and. thank you very much you were one of those people who brought up into the plains. the issues that we brought forward that there was the institutionalization. at the academy that is to say that people were using. their position. as air force officers as faculty members as officers come in and as advanced and senior
cadets to engage in and to inform others that the only appropriate way that they could resource their spirituality was from the bucket if you will conservative christian evangelicals. the commandant of cadets general engaged in rhetoric and for a bit and commanders guidance which talked about how people resourced their spirituality and. he equated militarism of conservative christianity with. expected the attitude that he expected from the students.
when you're eighteen years old. and your delusions are. big. yet. when people in the military whether they be chaplains or staff or people. articulate a religious perspective which says if you are not born again you are going to hell if you do not you jesus in this way then you are going to hell what you are really saying to that person is not. well your life and your existence is also
less to value than someone who embraces this idiology the etiology of the conservative christian. for all that is all they all are. live that while the authors. head off. while we have. several hundred. of sterile. biases or. where are all all the others whose are no. christian military. heroes our role was traced for. over three hours well it all is.
hello i'm major general retired deputy director of campus crusade for christ military ministries vision of campus crusade military ministries to transform the nations of the world to the military says we're. still finding just like the revival in the army in northern virginia eight hundred sixty two sixty three there's incredible numbers about a thousand a month i mean the recruit training camps that are coming. in and many more recommitting why is that. great clears a man's head you know to using this particular point in time to purify those individuals in the military as they go to do our bidding. and also providentially to purify our nation.
is. war even fundamental is. the lord's even zation. to be extremely powerful not only in the local community but one international level have a very international. reach these organizations others in there or scores of these organizations in the holy spirit is also interested in influencing as well as the. cademy. is america. and god you know. all the way from genesis to revelation you see that god does have opinions about nations if god's pleased with
a government he rewards it and he blesses it if he's not pleased with the government it withholds the blessing and. withholds his favor on that government so do i believe god has his hand on america yes do i believe god will continue to have his hand on america i think that's up to us and do i think it would be wise for us to do the things for god to continue having us and on america i think that would be what. you choose to only air force members in saddam hussein. seeming cool and childress
to have taken of this and have those photos published. to make up that sometimes a little publicity if it which projects to the rule that a christian american morning is in abilene and islam a country and performing christian rituals in the palace of the former dictator of that country the former islamic dictator that this morning country i think says very concerning and disturbing things and then for the military to tout that to put into law that activity or into a war that chappell in. the designation air force chapel in the year is is mind boggling to me quite frankly. in the military the kinds of extreme training that you go through are not justified by saying after all these are matters over life did. not.
have. the same justification it is used in in christian fundamentalism in terms of say there is this kind of alternate closeness warfare going on so i am willing to commit myself wholly to be sufficient principles just as i myself to this rigorous military life which justify a certain kind of intensity and radical the goals of my nation or the goals of god almighty god almighty will make sure that. does the will of the song from god is fulfilled through the action of this nation. but you know nine eleven changed everything for the united states of america and
changed things in the world. so as we train our soldiers to fight the war on terrorism the spiritual nature of this is very important it is very important at this point in time when our nation is on here in this terrorism threat they are moving fabric. tightly together so that we are able to fight this war on terror only. we've got to bend our knee as a nation we've got to repent as a nation and we've got to start heading in the right direction as soldiers troops and their families have an incredible influence over culture at large we take in the sons and daughters of america and we bring them into the military forces and they are mentally transformed they are physically transformed and in god's providence they can be spiritually transformed if we can influence the military for jesus christ we can influence nations regions and continents for jesus christ. i
want you to understand. god's love for your. heard the voice of god. and i can see god. in everything. and i pray there will be comforted by a power greater than any. spoken through the ages in song twenty three. even though i walk through the valley of the shadow of death. the evil. for you are with me. during this time when our nation is at war it is especially thrilling to hear that over one thousand young people accept christ every month at our us basic training locations in the united states and that future leaders our military are being read and disciples at the academies and are o.t.c.
detachments and operational locations around the world i am impressed with your goal to change color that's for christ. as we move forward together and helping to rebuild the great commission let me encourage you to continue fighting the good fight as you seek to bring face to the foxhole hope to the home front and carry the message of christ to the ins of the earth. god bless you. thank you. judge. will become
a liar. if. he will have to apologize to sodom and gomorrah. and the world happening and the. other fine. to be looking to alert. earthquakes wars rumors of wars we're living in the final days before eternity. could overtake you sooner than you think all you have to do is turn on the evening news to understand that a cataclysmic drama is about to be played out in the theater world of prayer you and i are living right now. in the days of the fulfillment of bible prophecy days that prophet. jeremiah could only look forward to.
each of. the. making disciples. teaching the leaders the compromising message of jesus to. assure of drugs and divorce and homosexuality and pornography and satanism and suicide and incest and we're all the slimy shaking this is not progress ladies and john. what we are experiencing as a nation is top progress. plus with shockwave the mileage spreading through the middle east more fair all prophecy of armageddon what alba signs convince these people that the end of the old is a pox. on a lot of christians are convinced that the apocalypse may be coming soon take a look at the rapture index on the world wide web so gentlemen from books to blogs to the back pews the buzz is all about the edits i am so i need to start taking
care of unfinished business and telling people that i love them and i'm sorry for all the evil things i've done well i think that would be a good start. as you watch this i can only america here. for this is being with you in. the business. your. fact that you are watching indicates that you have been left behind. nine eleven was a wake up call to america suddenly now we realize we are vulnerable and that fear can lead many people because. we believe that god has raised up america to be a tool. to get the gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth. bible has taught for over twenty five hundred years but the focus of the world would be
on the middle east and the nations that are in conflict today and the very nations that are talked about the bible twenty five hundred years ago the first book we wrote was called left behind as the syrians were trying to make sure that people accept jesus while they have an opportunity so they do don't be left behind and the interesting thing robin is that all across america in fact around the world many people are calling on the name of the. say because there's no alternative either accept jesus or you're going to go through a terrible time but mom often says better get right better get right in these times and that we're living it intuitively in the heart of every human being is the desire to live after death and we have the answer it's not from our words but from the bible and we're just fictionalized that made it so popular it just caught up it has caught on over sixty million worldwide gentlemen always a pleasure to have been here and for your insight really do appreciate it.
truly. snapped. i. should have. i don't like reading. stories. jill. complaining we haven't found weapons of mass destruction of course we have to tell stop. the war with islamic fascists pick up working. now it's anyone's guess as to whether we'll find stockpiles of w m d's or the poles following the right to soften your constitution.
dear friends until emotions calms down with two strong talents from brokeback mountain say we. start with. the first and most important principle that i want to risk. america is defined by its relationship to god. responsibility for think about this he gave us the us already been over this earth we are the landmarks and then when the fall of that we lost that the resurrection of jesus christ we gained that story once again. cared so much about
this authority that even read the law with his finger. to leave it for you. to read sure. and get a little bit more of the issues. but they lack a shawl. oh you just go back and freak show. just listen jesus. history's going to write about us. they're going to say who are the christians who are the leaders on the train off the tracks sixty dollars course culture or their eyes are going to say who are the christians the moms and dads the people who voted people into office the right on the office. when they saw the train was about to go off the track they're also fly by i mean they said i was.
folks the style arch. be confident. we're close we're very close to what he's found us and raise and show many men and women like you all over america will put christian citizenship i have to top of the list of your responsibilities then shoot very soon we will be able to come back to washington congratulating each other and know what shirt that we have done our duty and that we have given our children a shining sea otter ill.
dr james with my ethics professor at harvard divinity school. told us that when we were his age he was then close to eighty we would all be fighting the christian fascists. the warning given to me twenty five years ago came in the moment pat robertson and other radio and televangelists began speaking about a new political religion that would direct this efforts at taking control of all institutions including mainstream denominations in the government its stated goal was to use the united states to create a global christian empire. was hard at the time to take such fantastic rhetoric
seriously especially given the buffoonish quality of those who expounded it but i don't swarmed us against the blindness caused by intellectual snobbery. it was not a man to use the word fascist lightly it was in germany in one nine hundred thirty five and one nine hundred thirty six and worked with the underground and the nazi church known as the confessing church led by dietrich bonhoeffer i don't see also reminded us that american intellectuals and industrialists openly flirted with fascism in the one nine hundred thirty s. mussolini's corporatism which created an unchecked industrial and business aristocracy appeal to many american industrialists at the time who saw it as an affective counterweight to the new deal. adams finally told us to watch closely but the christian right did to homosexuals. he has seen how the nazis had used values to launch state repression opponents it were days after he took power in one nine
hundred thirty three imposed a ban on all homosexuals and lesbian organizations. i don't swarm the us the gays and lesbians would be the first social deviants singled out by the christian right . and we would be the next. again he said you know what how do you want do you want like setting in the library look or do you want do you want presidential or do you want os shocks or do you
