All of the major Christian churches in America have come out in favor of importing hundreds of thousands of Muslims into the US from the Middle East, even though such a move will speed up the extinction of both European-Americans and Christianity itself.
The Lutheran church in America has become the latest Christian denomination to make a formal appeal to Congress to allow even more Muslim “refugees from Syria” into the US, according to a report on the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service website.
The Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS), which is made up of a partnership between the three largest Lutheran Churches in America, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod LC-MS, and the Latvian Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (LELCA), brought together over 30 Lutheran bishops, pastors, service partners, and leaders for the annual Lutheran Immigration Leadership Summit (LILS) On October 26–27.
According to the Lutheran news site report, the next day, LILS participants gathered for a Lutheran prayer breakfast on Capitol Hill where Lutheran representative David Cicilline (D-RI), “a staunch advocate for increasing aid to and resettlement of Syrian refugees, motivated our participants with his call for action.”
After that, the LILS participants attended a meeting with White House officials, including representatives from the National Security Council, Domestic Policy Council, and the Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships.
According to the Lutheran news site, the LILS participants then “delivered petitions from thousands of Lutherans asking for the resettlement of more Syrian refugees.”
The Lutherans are merely the latest in the long line of all major Christian denominations to line up to plead the case for the 97 percent Sunni Muslim “refugee resettlement program” already in place.
1. The Catholic Church, with 68.5 million members, is now the single largest denomination in America.
That church is proud to boast that the United States Catholic Bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services department “resettles approximately 30 percent of the refugees that arrive in the US each year.”
It also encourages all Catholics to contact their “local Catholic Charities agency to find out if it has a resettlement program and, if so, how you can assist them in their effort to resettle refugees and help them build new lives of hope here in the United States.”
2. The next largest denomination in the US is the Southern Baptist Convention, which has 16.1 million members.
On its website, under an article titled “10 ways you can help with the Syrian refugee crisis” that church tells its members that “Global migration has brought many Syrians to the United States. Your church has an incredible opportunity to share God’s love with them as they make new lives here.”
It then urges its members to become involved in an online “community project” called ethnecity.com, which is centered around “integrating” as many “immigrants” and “refugees” as possible into the US.
3. The third largest denomination is the United Methodist Church, which has 7.8 million members.
In an article on its website (“US faith leaders: Take in more Syrian refugees,” Sept. 28, 2015), it announced that “Now, it is time for the US to act,” and that its church leaders had gathered “Sept. 28 near the US Capitol to press Congress and the Obama Administration to resettle 100,000 Syrian refugees by the end of next year.”
4. The fourth largest denomination is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or “Mormons,” which boasts some 6 million members.
On that church’s website devoted to charities, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints told its readers that “LDS Charities takes a special interest in the estimated 70,000 refugees living in Utah by supporting local refugee resettlement agencies with a variety of assistance including: Deseret Industries store vouchers, furniture, bedding, food, English acquisition, job coaching, on-the-job training, and employer placement.”
Furthermore, the Mormon church said, “LDS Charities advocates support for local community efforts that assist relocated refugees, and it especially encourages the volunteerism of its members in these causes.”
5. The fifth largest denomination in America is the Church of God in Christ, a 5.5 million-strong black Pentecostal church.
The Church of God in Christ told its supporters that its “Disaster Relief Committee had been working with organizations and individuals in multiple locations . . . As refugees continue to make their way into Europe and other safer zones, we are currently working with our Global Strategy regional coordinators in Europe and the Middle East to connect with partners working with these groups.”
6. The sixth largest denomination in America is another black church, the National Baptist Convention, USA, which has 5 million members. They, like many of the smaller black Christian churches, all support the Church World Service which has called for more Middle Eastern “refugees” in the US (see below).
7. The seventh largest denomination is the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, with 4.5 million members. As outlined above, this church is actively lobbying Congress to bring in even more Muslim “refugees”—and has even submitted its own testimony to the Senate in this regard.
According to a “Statement for the Record of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America submitted to Senate Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Human Rights Hearing on ‘The Syrian Refugee Crisis’” (January 7, 2014, available on the Evangelical Lutheran Church’s website here), the US has a “moral obligation to individual refugees and to the international community to begin immediately accepting Syrian refugees into the US refugee resettlement program.”
8. The eighth largest denomination is the National Baptist Convention of America, a 3.5 million-strong black church. It supports the Church World Service which has called for more Middle Eastern “refugees” in the US (see below).
9. The ninth largest denomination in America is the Assemblies of God USA (AG), a 2.9 million-strong Pentecostal Christian denomination.
This church is actively involved in providing on-the-ground aid to the nonwhite invaders in Greece, as outlined on its blog, where AG pastors Pat and Brenda Mahar thanked church members for their money and support in their work amongst the Muslims this way: “Thank you for your contribution toward the needs of the Syrian, Eritrean, and Afghan refugees! We have used BGMC funds to help feed and clothe many refugees who are boarding ferries on the Island of Lesbos, Greece, coming to Athens. -Pat and Brenda Mahar, pastors, ICF of Athens”
10. The tenth largest denomination is the Presbyterian Church (USA), which has 2.7 million members.
According to that church’s own news service (“Christian denominations and ecumenical groups urge more support for Syrian refugees,” September 30, 2015), “The Presbyterian Church (USA) is one of a dozen Christian denominations and ecumenical groups that have sent a letter to the White House, urging the president to do more to help Syrian refugees.
“The US should open its doors to receive many more refugees. Even with more adequate funding for humanitarian assistance, some Syrians feel they will never be able to return home safely and wish to resettle in a third country. Many in our faith communities have a long and rich history of welcoming refugees. We encourage the US to accept more Syrian refugees and to expedite the processing of these applications.”
In addition to the Presbyterian Church (USA), that letter was signed by some smaller denominations, including the Church of the Brethren; the Global Ministries of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and United Church of Christ; the Mennonite Central Committee US; and the United Church of Christ, Justice and Witness Ministries.
The Church World Service (CWS) is an umbrella organization which speaks on behalf of 37 Christian denominations in the US, including many smaller denominations not listed above.
These CWS member churches include the African Methodist Episcopal Church; the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church; the Alliance of Baptists; the American Baptist Churches USA; the Armenian Church of America (including Diocese of California); the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ); the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church; the Church of the Brethren; the Community of Christ; the Coptic Orthodox Church in North America; the Ecumenical Catholic Communion; the Episcopal Church; the Friends United Meeting; the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America; the Hungarian Reformed Church in America; the International Council of Community Churches; the Korean Presbyterian Church in America; the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church; the Mar Thoma Church; the Moravian Church in America; the Orthodox Church in America; the Patriarchal Parishes of the Russian Orthodox Church in the U.S.A.; the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends; the Polish National Catholic Church of America; the Progressive National Baptist Convention, Inc.; the Reformed Church in America; the Serbian Orthodox Church in the U.S.A. and Canada; the Swedenborgian Church; the Syrian Orthodox Church of Antioch; the Ukrainian Orthodox Church in America; and the United Church of Christ. Some of the larger denominations are also members of the Church World Service, such as the United Methodist Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and the Presbyterian Church (USA).
According to a Reuters report (“Religious groups push US to take in 100,000 Syrian refugees,” September 9, 2015), the Church World Service called on the government to take in 100,000 Syrians over the next year.
According to US Census Data, the United States admits roughly 100,000 Muslim immigrants legally each year, representing the fastest growing block of immigration into the United States. Pew Research has estimated that immigration will cause the population of US Muslims to more than double over the next two decades—from 2.6 million in 2010 to 6.2 million in 2030.
Every year the United Stated admits 70,000 “asylum seekers and refugees.” Arabic is the most common language spoken by “refugees“, and 91.4 percent of refugees from the Middle East are on food stamps.
The Christian churches which support the continued influx of Muslims from the Middle East are therefore active participants in the genocide of European-Americans, and, ironically, also of the eradication of Christianity in the United States.
