The “synagogue of Satan” is “corrupting the country,” according to End Times broadcaster and anti-Semite Rick Wiles, who is no stranger to paranoid conspiracy theories.
He made the comments on Friday’s episode of his “TruNews” show.
Newsflash for Wiles: Jews don’t believe in Satan. Not that understanding theology matters to him.
“The power of the Israeli lobby in America is the most detrimental force in America,” Wiles said. “Our culture has been decimated through abortion, pornography, the sexual liberation movement, filthy, raunchy movies [and] television shows, vile, violent rap music and hip hop and all of it owned by the synagogue of Satan. And I cannot be a preacher of the Gospel and not confront the synagogue of Satan, even if it costs me my life. A day is coming [when] Christians are going to lose their lives as they confront the synagogue of Satan. You cannot stand for Jesus Christ and righteousness in this world without confronting the synagogue of Satan.”
“Well, who’s crapping on the country?” he asked. “Who’s crapping in this country? Who has brought the abortion, the homosexuality, the sexual liberation movement, the vile movies? Who has attacked our Christian culture? Who has filed lawsuits to remove crosses and Bibles? Who has done it? The synagogue of Satan.”
[Editor’s note: Those lawsuits were filed by atheist and church/state separation groups, too. Credit where it’s due.]
And who exactly is consuming all this pornographic, raunchy “filth”? It’s not like you’ll find fewer porn viewers in the Bible Belt.
Wiles seems to believe that Christians are endangered by “Satan’s synagogue,” possibly to the point that their lives could be in danger. Any student of history can see the ridiculousness of such a statement. If any group is in danger from the other, it’s the Jews, who have faced more discrimination and violent persecution at the hands of Christians than you’ll ever find the other way around. Today, Jews make up less than 0.01% of the whole world, so I doubt they will be starting wars against Christians any time soon.
Despite claiming to be a “preacher of the Gospel,” Wiles doesn’t seem to be too concerned about truth.
