From Sunsara Taylor:

Hi All,

I am sharing a piece I just wrote on Battle Cry, a mulit-million dollar Christian fascist youth movement with ties right up to the White House.

It is published on CounterPunch:
or you can read it below.

It also includes links to the O’Reilly factor episode where I debated Battle Cry’s Ron Luce.

Please forward.

Battle Cry for Theocracy!

If you’ve been waiting until the Christian fascist movement started filling stadiums with young people and hyping them up to do battle in “God’s army” to get alarmed, wait no longer.

In recent weeks, Battle Cry, a Christian fundamentalist youth movement, has attracted more than 25,000 to mega-rally rock concerts in San Francisco and Detroit and this weekend they plan to fill Wachovia Stadium in Philadelphia.

They claim their religion and values are under attack but, amidst spectacular lightshows, hummers, Navy Seals, and military imagery on stage, it is Battle Cry that has declared war on everyone else! Their leader, Ron Luce, insists: “This is war. And Jesus invites us to get into the action, telling us that the violent–the ‘forceful’ ones–will lay hold of the kingdom.”

  • I saw that show on “O’Reilly”. Sunsara Taylor made a fool of herself. But that’s the same Sunsara Taylor who belongs to the Revolutionary Communist Party, so I’m not surprised.

  • If this is all the communist party has to offer, then the christian movement has nothing to worry about. She really isn’t very intelligent, and it sounds like SHE is the one that is brainwashed.This is great, they are making it too easy!!
