If Obama Wins, History Will Blame the Clergy

Where is the Black Regiment?

By Randall Terry

I am convinced that if Obama wins, future historians will conclude that it was because of the clergy that Obama won. I beg you to let me make my case.

After reading this, if you agree with my sentiments, forward it to your pastor, priest, or bishop. This may be the most soul jarring article he reads during the 2008 election.

If you are a clergymen, please read this all the way through.

Please ponder four critical moments in history:

1- The birth of the Church;

2- The American Revolution;

3- The German Church before and during the holocaust;

4- The Church in America today.

Consider the Church as Recorded in the Book of Acts

The Apostles were commanded to cease preaching in the name of Jesus. They refused to obey the authorities, and defied the authorities to their face, saying: "We must obey God rather than men!" (See Acts 5:29)

They were hunted, beaten, imprisoned – and ultimately – all the early Apostles were martyred except for John the Beloved.

Why were they killed? Because they preached that Jesus is Lord of heaven and earth; that Jesus is the King of kings, that "all authority in heaven and earth" is His (See Matthew 28:18), and that God would make Jesus' enemies a footstool for His feet. (See Acts 2: 34, 35)

That message was illegal to preach. In fact, those who hunted Paul brought charges that the Apostles preached what was not lawful for Romans to hear; things "…contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying there is another King, Jesus." (See Acts 17:7)

They preached that Christ was above the Emperor, and that their first obedience was due to Him. The Roman authorities viewed them as revolutionaries; Heaven viewed them as heroes.

Think of Clergy During the American Revolution

The clergy were such a key part of the Revolution, that King George III called it "the parsons rebellion." The clergy earned the nick-name, "The Black Regiment" because of their role in instigating and sustaining the war effort (and because they wore black robes!)

They preached that tyrants must be resisted; that there was "no King but Jesus;" that according to Romans Chapter 13 the colonists had a duty to resist, and overthrow those brutes who had betrayed their God ordained duty to serve in politics in the fear of God. (Ironically, Romans 13:1-5 is now misquoted and misused by those calling for groveling submission to tyrants)

The British authorities viewed them as traitors, revolutionaries, and criminals. Heaven viewed them as heroes, faithful to the Word of God.

Think of the German Church During the Holocaust

Adolph Hitler declared just after he was voted into power:

The parsons will be made to dig their own graves. They will betray their God to us. They will betray anything for the sake of their miserable little jobs and incomes." (The Nazi Persecution of the Churches, J.S. Conway.)

Martin Niemoller and a handful of others offered surprising resistence: "Not you, Herr Hitler, but God is my Führer." Niemoller, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and a small amount of other clergy – both Catholic and Protestant – were arrested and imprisoned. Many of them perished in concentration camps.

But overall, Hitler's assessment of German clergy proved true. After the war, Martin Niemoller wrote Guilt and Hope, and basically blamed the German clergy for Hitler's rise to power. If only the clergy had spoken out early on, Hitler could have been stopped. The clergy chose silence and safety; they lost the life and soul of their nation in the exchange, and the condemnation of countless generations to come.

Heaven viewed them with tears; history views them in contempt.

Now Compare the American Church Today

Devout protestant and Catholic clergy (and for that matter, devout laymen) like to believe that they have the guts and mettle of the early Church and the American Revolution.

We may even daydream; "If I had been there, I would have stood shoulder to shoulder with the Apostles, and the clergy of the American Revolution."

Likewise, we look with contempt on the cowardice and treachery of German clergy and laity during Hitler's time, thinking: "If I had been there, I would have spoken out. I would have helped the Jews; I would have resisted Hitler."

In reality, these happy daydreams may be delusions.

If you are a clergyman, and someone from your Church forwarded this to you, PLEASE finish reading this. It will only sting for a minute, and the cure offered at the end will be a healing balm for your soul. PLEASE READ THIS TO THE END.

The Prophet Jeremiah said: "If you have raced with men on foot, and they have wearied you, how will you compete with horses? And if in a safe land you fall down, how will you do in the jungle of the Jordan?" (Jeremiah 12:5)

Forgive me for speaking in general terms – and surely there are some exceptions to what I'm about to say – but here it is: The vast majority of American clergy are cut from the cloth of most German clergy under Hitler. They are not like the Apostles in the book of Acts, or the clergy during the American Revolution.

Am I wrong? The early Apostles risked their lives to preach "Jesus is Lord!" The preaching and suffering of the early Church ended the reign of terror from Ceasors.

The clergy of the Revolution risked their "lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor" to foment the American Revolution; a revolution where Christian laymen and clergy shot real bullets to kill their fellow humans. Many Americans died in battle, after heeding the call of the clergy to take up arms.

That is what it took to end the tyranny of King George III, and give birth to this great nation.

What hardships do American Clergy face today

To derail and defeat Obama?

Will they be hunted? No.

Will they be beaten? No.

Will they go to a concentration camp? No.

Will they be executed? No.

The most they will face is annoying letters from the IRS, and maybe some low-grade litigation. And maybe, just maybe, they will have to surrender their tax exempt status.

Let me put it plainly: Is there even one active Catholic Bishop who will risk his life to end the abortion holocaust? Is their even one Evangelical leader who will risk being a martyr to speak out against Obama, and help end the slaughter of babies.

It is not likely, because not even one of them will risk his tax-exempt status. They have run with men and grown weary, how can they run against horses?

In short: The pulpits of America stand silent; they do not resist the baby-killing tyrant named Obama by name, because childish fear has gripped the heart of clergy.

Stated plainly: they have sold their pulpit; they are hirelings. They have agreed to accept "hush money" from the 501(c)3 tax code in exchange for not naming the names of political villains and despots.

Perhaps, like the German Clergy, they are trying to keep their jobs. But as Hitler prophesied, they are betraying their God and digging their graves; and they are selling the soul of their nation in the process.

To the clergy who have made it this far, I ask you: What do you want? The praise of God, or the praise of men? You usually can't have both.

Jesus said: "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so men persecuted the prophets who were before you." (Matthew 5:10-12)

How Do You Want to be Remembered?

Do you want to be remembered like the Prophets of old, and the early Apostles, and the Revolutionary clergy – who risked all to herald the Gospel of Jesus, and to fight for the lives and rights of the oppressed?

Or do you want to be remembered like the German clergy, who skulked and hid in the shadows, and neither risked much, nor accomplished much, and lost everything?

You can't have it both ways; you can't be a hero and a coward.

Here is a simple cure: Tell the powers that be that you are done wearing the muzzle provided to you by fearful attorneys and the 501(c)3 tax status. Tell them to take it back to hell where it came from. Tell them you are a servant of Christ, not a hireling of the state. Tell them you will put the lives of innocent babies ahead of money.

Tell them you will not stand silent while Obama is elected. Tell them you are Christ's own, and that there is one King: Jesus!

And by the way…the best way to tell them is to ignore them. JUST PREACH! Just say the truth about Obama. Show his vile commitment to kill babies, and then thunder like Elijah and John the Baptist against his villainy.

Walk in the spirit of the early Apostles, and the Revolutionary clergy, not the clergy of Germany.

And you, like your champions, will be viewed from Heaven's viewpoint as a hero.

Here are some final marching orders for Laity:

1) Forward this letter to your pastor, no matter what denomination he is. Beg him to read it all the way through.

2) Send him a personal email, asking him to go to to watch the very short video made for him. We have Catholic and Evangelical versions.

3) Try to get bishop Gracida's radio ad on the air in your area. Go to to download an mp3 file that your radio station can use. Pay for the ad to run out of your own pocket. It is called an independent expenditure.

4) Give any small gift you can to help with our activities. All that we are doing costs money, and we need your help. If you support this message, please help. I beg you, if you can possibly give, please do so right away. Click here to contribute. And no, we are not tax-deductable!

No matter what, please forward this letter to your clergy. Beg him to read it all the way through. And ask him to watch the videos we made for him at

And tell him you will support him when he throws off the 501(c)3 muzzle! Tell him you will defend him! Beg him to have the courage of his heroes and forbearers!

Lift up your voice for the voiceless!

God bless you,
