Janet Porter lashes out at critics following the decision of radio network VCY America to drop her show:
The “separation of church and state.” I could be reading from the constitution of the former Soviet Union, a decision by Ruth Bader Ginsburg or a fundraising letter from the ACLU. But instead, I’m repeating a philosophy of “Christian” groups like Discernment Ministries and their website, “Herescope.”
No kidding. There remains a very vocal group of self-proclaimed Christians who believe their “spiritual gift” is criticism and their role is to join the ranks of the ACLU and police the streets for Christians who dare step outside the four walls of the church into the light of day.
They insist Christians must stay within the church singing from the same page of the same hymnal, perfectly pious and free from those not legalistically aligned…all while our nation and our freedoms are burning to the ground. No, they’re not involved, just like the Christians who “sang a little louder” from their hymnals so not to hear the screams from the trains headed for the concentration camps.
Whoa! Accusing Christians who disagree with her politics of being Communists and/or Nazis?
This is borderline bizarre. I can understand Mrs. Porter being upset. Her May Day 2010 event was not well attended and it cost her a major distributor of her daily broadcast. But her rant in WorldNetDaily is a mean-spirited series of ad hominem attacks.
What’s truly sad is that Porter appears blind to a simple truth: Jesus never called his followers to political activism. Apparently she believes that any response to the spread of immorality short of political action is useless–no, worse than that, it’s collaboration with the enemy.
“Spend more time reading the Bible”, Porter writes. She should take her own advice. And then, Mrs. Porter, show us chapter and verse where Jesus told His followers to reclaim the seven mountains of culture.
Here’s a hint: it’s not in there. It’s a doctrine that was unknown to the apostles. The real ones, I mean–not the self-appointed, self-anointed apostles like Chuck Pierce, Cindy Jacobs, and Dutch Sheets that Porter hung out with in D.C. on
Beltane May Day.
Porter suggests that Sarah Leslie of Discernment Ministries, the target of her hit piece, is “on the same side as the ACLU, homosexual activists, the baby killers and the enemies of God”. Maybe Porter doesn’t know that Leslie was a leader in the homeschooling movement in the ’90s and the head of Iowa Right to Life in the ’80s, when she was on a first name basis with the likes of Pat Robertson.
The irony is that it’s Porter, not Leslie, who finds herself on the same side of biblical truth as the enemies of God.
“My kingdom is not of this world.” That is in the Bible, Mrs. Porter. As Casey Stengel used to say, “You could look it up.”
