Our hearts are broken to the atrocity in Florida’s shooting. Please be in prayer for all those families that lost a loved one.

Re: Silence, but Not Silent

“A gunman who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State opened fire inside a crowded gay bar and dance club here early Sunday, leaving 49 people dead and 53 injured in the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, authorities said.” Thus opens The Washington Post’s article on this crime against God which took place during the early hours of Sunday. Add the gunman who murdered those within the club, who was himself killed by the police, and that gives us a total of 50 who died during this atrocity.
Let’s take a moment of silence as we reflect on the 50 men and women who were created in the image of God.
Let’s take a moment of silence as we reflect on the other victims whose lives have been forever impacted.
Let’s take a moment of silence as we consider the numerous hearts that have been broken and families that have been forever affected by this evil. In truth, we have all been affected by this to some degree.
Let’s take a moment of silence as we remember that these are now 50 souls who have stepped out of time and into eternity. As they were, they will forever be.
Let’s take a moment of silence remembering the Apostle’s exhortation in Romans 12:15, “Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.”
Let’s take a moment of silence remembering Ecclesiastes 7:2 “It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart.” Taking a moment to reflect on the frailty and uncertainty of life as these casualties went from a “house of feasting” to a “house of mourning” in the blink of an eye. It could indeed be any one of us.
We take these moments to share in their grief that we might show Christ; and in so doing, take an opportunity to share the compassion of truth.
Putting silence aside for a moment, let’s recognize that this is NOT a gun control issue. Why is it that every time someone goes on a shooting rampage, the government wants to take guns away from those who aren’t doing the shooting? Why take guns away from the law-abiding citizen, thereby putting others at risk and at the whims of those who would perpetuate criminal activity?
Putting silence aside, let’s recognize that no matter how much they say it’s not about religion, the shooter, Omar Mateen, called 9-1-1 and pledged allegiance to the leader of the Islamic State. Let’s take note that his dad was a long time supporter of the Taliban in Afghanistan.
Putting silence aside, let’s acknowledge that these “lone wolf” attacks aren’t so “lone wolf” as the media would like us to believe. Islamic terrorist groups, including and in particular the Islamic State, has called for an increase in so-called lone wolf attacks, especially in the West and in particular during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which is taking place right now.
Putting silence aside, let’s speak out loudly that there is a vast difference between Islam and Christianity. While Jesus calls us to love our enemy, Mohammad would call for the killing of that enemy. While Christ calls us to share the compassion of truth with the homosexual, Mohammad calls for the killing of the same. While the Koran would make life seem to have little worth, the Bible tells us that all life is sacred and of worth.
Often the Christian and the Muslim may look too much alike to those who were enjoying the festivities at the nightclub this past Saturday night. When we wield the truth as a weapon instead of living it out with compassion, reconciling the world to God, we do our Lord a disservice. “We are called to live the truth, to teach the truth, to be the truth, and to love our neighbors on the basis of that truth.” (Al Mohler; We Cannot Be Silent)
We dare not remain silent about the atrocities committed against God (for all sin is against our Creator); yet we mustn’t forget our own brokenness and the grace which saves. The truth needs to be presented with boldness and urgency—for time is short—yet it must be presented with love and compassion.
After taking these moments of silence let us speak aloud to the God of heaven. Pray for these victims and the affected families. Pray that God will send a voice of compassionate truth into their lives. Pray that our country may once more have open eyes to the truth, truth in life and in government. Pray that God will transform each of us into better image bearers—presenting Him more accurately—in truth and love.

Obama & Orlando
Sunday afternoon, President Obama took to the podium at the White House briefing room and turned the Orlando attack into a tirade against guns. Obama said that the FBI had “reached no definitive judgment on the precise motivations of the killer.” In fact, the FBI had a pretty good idea given that Omar Mateen called 911 and pledged his loyalty to ISIS.
Obama blamed hate and guns. And as he has done his entire administration, he left out the most important point: This was an act of ideology, formed and driven by an Islamic supremacist theology.
We do not have certainty about how many Muslims are infected with this supremacist ideology. We do know, however, that it is not an insignificant number.
For example, it is so widespread that the Islamic Republic of Iran is built on it, and many Iranians pray and work toward the day when a second Holocaust can be successfully carried out.
We know on battlefields reaching from Syria into Iraq that the Islamic State has been able to hold off the armies of multiple nations.
For the 3,000 people killed on 9/11, for the runners at the Boston Marathon, for the soldiers at Fort Hood who thought they could safely relax back in the U.S., for our fellow Americans enjoying a party, for young rockers at a Paris concert, for iconoclastic journalists in the same city, for Israelis quietly sipping coffee just a few days ago in Tel Aviv, the number of jihadists in our midst is a theoretical argument that can only be had by the living.
We know the jihadist army is growing, not shrinking. At the same time, western countries have repeatedly assured their Muslim citizens that we feel no anger toward them; that we want them to enjoy all the benefits of our free and open societies. Mosques are being built at a faster rate than before 9/11.
During this period, Muslim supremacism has been spreading. Terror attacks have increased. Curiously, political elites throughout the West have increased immigration and refugee resettlement from the very countries where the jihadist ideology burns the hottest.
Politicians in Europe and the United States who question this policy are compared to Adolf Hitler and Nazism. One can’t help but notice the irony that the closest thing to Nazism in the world today is this very Islamic supremacist ideology, including its hatred of Jews.
But questions must be asked. For example, did the FBI know that Mateen’s father supports the Taliban?
The attack in Orlando Sunday morning was the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11. Slouching towards us is a “beast,” just over the horizon, bringing so much death that 9/11 will look small in comparison.
It is a sad curse of history that, faced with this danger, we are saddled with Barack Obama, a president who refuses to do what any previous American president would have done. Unless we wake up, we face the prospect of electing Hillary Clinton, who will continue Obama’s destructive policies.
It’s Your Fault
The left is already trying to make the case that if you believe in traditional marriage or don’t want your daughter using the same bathroom as boys who think they are girls, then you are responsible for creating the atmosphere of hate that lead to the Orlando shooting.
One ACLU attorney tweeted yesterday morning, “You know what is gross — your [Christian] thoughts and prayers and Islamophobia after you created this anti-queer climate.”
Yet, Mateen had ties to a radical imam and traveled to Saudi Arabia twice in recent years as he reportedly grew more devout.
So let’s just summarize: If you’re a Muslim listening to Muslim leaders saying gays should be killed and you kill gays, it has nothing to do with your Muslim faith.
But if you are a conservative who believes marriage is between a man and a woman, and that little girls should not be forced to use bathrooms with little boys who think they are girls, then according to ACLU, you have created the atmosphere that led the Muslim jihadist to kill gays.
Over and over again, our elites keep referring to the Orlando attack as a tragedy. A tragedy is when a newborn dies of a rare disease or when someone is killed in an accident.
What happened in Orlando was an atrocity. It was an attack — an act of war. It should be treated as such, rather than dismissed as an unexplainable accident.
Commentators have repeatedly compared this attack to Sandy Hook and the Aurora, Colorado, theater shootings, as Barack Obama did in his White House statement. In those cases, two insane individuals committed horrendous crimes, raising serious questions about the need for reform in our mental health system.
What happened in Orlando, at Fort Hood, in Boston and San Bernardino were not mental health issues. They were not gun issues. (The Tsarnaev brothers used pressure cookers as bombs in Boston.) They were examples of the Islamic supremacist threat within our country.
Yet Obama, with virtually every word he utters, tries to confuse the American people. Once again, the left is using this Islamist attack as a battering ram to knock down your door, take away your gun and limit your rights.
Sad, But True
My co-host on the “Bauer & Rose Show,” Tom Rose, former CEO and publisher of the Jerusalem Post, suggested that if we want to see leftists become Second Amendment advocates, we should immediately demand that Muslims be banned from owning firearms.
Our left-wing elites, desperate to disassociate this atrocity from Islam, also keep telling us that Mateen was just a lone wolf, acting on his own. Just like Major Nidal Hasan. But how many lone wolves do you need before you have a pack of wolves?
Like Hasan, there were warnings about Omar Mateen. Co-workers repeatedly complained about his rhetoric, including his praise Hezbollah and ISIS. He was investigated by the FBI at least twice.
FBI Director James Comey told reporters today that Mateen “admitted to making statements about the terrorist organizations, but he said he did it in anger because he thought his coworkers were discriminating against him.” The investigations were closed without any charges.
In other words, Mateen used political correctness to his advantage and manipulated the FBI!
One classmate said Mateen celebrated on the morning of 9/11. From then until now, he walked through America expressing his sympathy for radical Islam.
Once again, the government’s mantra of “If you see something, say something,” completely failed us. Russia said something about the Tsarnaev brothers. Co-workers of Major Nidal Hasan said something.
The left’s politically correct worldview is killing us. On a range of issues, its goal is to stamp out normal human emotions.
Wake Up, America!
Recent elections and polling shows that many young people increasingly support left-wing politicians. They might want to reconsider.
Young people go to concerts like those in Paris. They run in the Boston Marathon. They go to nightclubs like the one in Orlando.
Yet, the politicians many of those young people vote for will not confront the enemy that carried out the attacks in Paris, Boston and Orlando. Their left-wing, anti-gun policies won’t stop the attacks.
To America’s progressive youth and their parents, I must ask: What is more important to you? Breaking the glass ceiling and electing the first female president? Making sure your daughter has the right to take the life of her unborn child?
Or making sure you and your children can go to a sporting event or rock concert and not worry that there are jihadists living among us, plotting to kill us?
The other day, Muslim migrants in Dusseldorf, Germany, burned down the asylum center where they were living after the morning wake-up call for Ramadan prayers failed to go off.
My question is when are we going to hear our wake-up call?

Larry Dowdy from WLNI interviewed Michael DelRosso Thursday morning about “Sharia law in America.” Most of our audiences have no clue to what is coming for us!
Michael DelRosso audio interview:
At the Tea Party meeting we had watched and then discussed “The cost of Refugee Resettlement in Virginia.” That video outlined the amount of dollars Virginians are paying for the refugees coming into the Commonwealth. It was a shocker! After the video, we had a Skype Q&A with the author.
The attendees were flabbergasted at the cost and the secrecy that is carried on without our towns/cities or its leaderships being informed before “delivery” of the refugees.
Click on the the link below to see that video:
Refugee Resettlement Virginia
An added bonus of what to expect in a 3 min video.
Watch to the see the future of Europe (and coming to America)
A shocking new video provides more reason for non-Muslims in the West to worry about the ongoing refugee crisis in the Middle East. A Muslim cleric and leader was recently explaining what was really going on with the mass Muslim migration when he got a bit too honest with the crowd.
“The infidels want us to be tormented. They want us to be humiliated. The Koran says: “The Jews and the Christians will never be pleased with you,” but we will never follow their religion. This dark night will be over, and soon, we will trample them underfoot, Allah willing.
Germany is not a compassionate country that wishes to absorb refugees from Syria and Iraq, and Palestinian refugees in the Levant and elsewhere. Europe has become old and decrepit, and needs human reinforcement. No force is more powerful than the human force of us Muslims. Oh, Muslims, the Germans say, in their economic reports, that they need 50,000 young workers. Now, they have got 20,000, and they want another 30,000 and more, to work in their factories. They are not motivated by compassion for the Levant, its people, and its refugees.
Throughout Europe, all the hearts are infused with hatred toward Muslims. They wish that we were dead. But they have lost their fertility, so they look for fertility in our midst. We will give them fertility! We will breed children with them, because WE SHALL CONQUER THEIR COUNTRIES – whether you like it or not, oh Germans, oh Americans, oh French, oh Italians and all those like you.
Take the refugees! We shall soon collect them in the name of the coming Caliphate. We will say to you: These are our sons. Send them, or we will send our armies to you.
Folks, don’t be misled. The world’s Islamic leaders have an agenda. And that agenda is conquest.
