Radio Derb Is On The Air: Ministering For Dollars, Etc.

Thanks to refugee resettlement, this NY State church is now a mosque.

This week I pound away at the shameful participation of our Christian churches in the rape of American national sovereignty.

The topic has been well worked over here at VDARE.com (and even more relentlessly at Refugee Resettlement Watch), but mainstream-media coverage of the issue is so thin (translation: “nonexistent”), most American Christians are unaware that this is a money game, the churches enriching themselves from the public fisc, probably unconstitutionally.

To cover up what they are so disgracefully doing for cold monetary advantage, the churches resort to hypocrisy.  Radio Derb:

While they’re raking these funds in from the government, the churches are still of course asking their congregants for money; and the nasty, dishonest, and to my sensibility quite creepy thing is, they boast of these lesser amounts from parishioners, without ever speaking about the much bigger government grants.

Here for example is a 1,200-word item from the Episcopal News Service, July 8th, telling us how church members in one afternoon raised $1,000, quote, “to buy shoes for the children, some of whom arrived at Abbott House without any footwear,” end quote.

That would be Abbott House in Irvington, New York. A thousand dollars from those parishioners—pretty good, eh? Except that, looking at the Federal Register for July 15th I see that Abbott House got a grant of nearly three million dollars for those same children.

If squeezing a thousand dollars out of your parishioners is newsworthy, shouldn’t three million dollars of taxpayer money going to the same location be three thousand times as newsworthy? Yet I can find no mention of the grant in any of the Episcopal News Service bulletins for July.

Why the silence? Is that how Christian charity’s supposed to work? What happened to separation of church and state?

The full Radio Derb playbill:

  • Off with their heads!  (Capital punishment—look up etymology.)
  •  Ministering for dollars.  (Why church accountants l-o-v-e illegal immigration.)
  • The thickening ideological miasma.  (Lessons from the antipodes.)
  • Two kinds of asymmetry.  (Advice to Israel, from a friend.)
  • Distant ripples from a civilizational catastrophe.  (Ukraine-Russia:  the causal chain.)
  • Non-child non-refugees.  (Lies churches tell.)
  • Pursuit of realism.  (Life, liberty, and …)
  • Be smart, live long.  (Intelligence is good for you.)
