Faith Leaders Call To ‘Repentance’ Progressive Catholics and Protestants Aiding George Soros’ ‘Anti-Christian’ Agenda
An open letter signed by more than 75 of America’s evangelical and Catholic leaders calls upon politically progressive groups that claim to be members of a traditional “faith” to refuse financial assistance from leftwing billionaire political activist George Soros and his political allies.
The group of leaders – which calls itself the American Association of Evangelicals – writesin its letter:
After years of earnest but less public attempts, it is now with heavy hearts, and a hope for justice and restoration, that we Christian leaders urge ‘progressive evangelicals’ and Catholics to repent of their work that often advances a destructive liberal political agenda. We write as true friends knowing that most believers mean well. We desire the best for you and for the world God loves.
“The consequent realities include injury to countless people, the Church, the family, nation and the global Church including many martyrs,” the religious leaders add, noting that the Progressive Movement has left the nation with an abortion industry that allegedly profits from aborted baby body parts; the abandonment of the biblical view of marriage; a transgender and gender fluid agenda promoted by President Barack Obama; open hostility toward the Judeo-Christian foundation of the nation; agitation of racial unrest; political use of the IRS to intimidate conservative and Christian groups; and other “consequences of Progressive political activism.”
Co-signers of the letter include Dr. Alveda King, Dr. James Garlow, Mat Staver, George Barna, Miles McPherson, Lt. Gen. Wm. “Jerry” Boykin, Eric Metaxas and Bishop Harry R Jackson, Jr. READ MORE
