'Pro-family' politics: Black-robed judges = bad; armed black-robed preachers = yes!

by Jeremy Hooper

Jim-GarlowMore from anti-LGBT equality pastor Jim Garlow:

Garlow recalls how pastors before the Revolutionary War led people to godliness. "...When these pastors would complete their sermons, they would take off their black robes -- they preached in vestments at those times -- ... [and] underneath that would be the attire of military," he shares. "They would pick up a musket and [ask]: 'Who's going to go fight with me?'

"And so the revolutionary armies during that time came from pastors leading the churches. It's known as the Blacked-Robed Regiment."

That same kind of leadership, says the California pastor, is needed today. "And we need a black-robed regiment today," he urges. "We need pastors who are willing to stand up. And we need persons who are in the pews to stand up with them -- a black-robed regiment of laypersons -- who's going to take [a like stand]. We're going to have to spiritually see our nation change."

Pastor: Christians need to make a difference on Nov. 2 [ONN]

You say you want a revolution? Well, you know: We all want to change the world.

But when you talk about destruction, don't you know that you can count me out?
