Obama Hates The Crusades, Because The Crusades Go Against Everything He Stands For, Since He Is A Muslim Jihadist

By Theodore Shoebat

In the most national prayer breakfast, Obama diverted the subject from ISIS and began to express his hatred against the Christian Crusades. The reason for this is because Obama hates Christians and Christianity, and is himself a Muslim jihadist. He continues to support Islam while hating Christianity, and heavily funds and supports the jihadists in Syria. His own family are Muslims and work with terrorists.

The Crusades go against everything Obama stands for. I did a video on this:

With this said, I would like to present to you a beautiful story on the Crusades. Here is a section from my upcoming book (which will be the most exhaustive study ever written on Christian militancy) explaining and detailing the conquest of Antioch…

In order to end the Islamic persecution over Christian lands in the East, it was necessary for the crusaders to take the city of Antioch in Syria which had fallen to the Turks only ten years before Urban commenced the First Crusade. Syria acted as a bridge by which the western and eastern legs of the Islamic empire would communicate and bring armies behind the Crusaders’ radar. It provided a free passage for Muslim armies going north from south and vice versa, and it connected Mesopotamia, Persia and all Muslim lands even unto the Indus, with the religious center of Mecca. Should this link be broken, the Muslim power would have bled to death by such a wound. (Belloc, The Crusades, ch. i, p. 2; ch. iv, p. 51; ch. v, p. 77; ch. ix, p. 173)

So crucial was Syria in this war that Hilaire Belloc wrote that “Islam would not have survived had the Crusade made good its hold upon the essential point of Damascus.” (Belloc, The Crusades, ch. i, p. 5)

To control Syria is to control the Muslim world, and the same applies today despite of our technology; our airplanes and petrol. (Belloc, The Crusades, ch. viii, p. 163)

Such is the reason why that Turkey even till this day, in reviving its wounded Islamic empire, wants to take Syria. The Syrian revolution was praised at its beginnings, but the end result will only be a revival of the Ottoman empire, and a pool filled with the blood of the saints.

So infamous was Antioch for its great fortifications and immensely thick walls, and so great was this siege that it provoked a medieval monk to write a poem so vivid and evocative that it would be an injustice to try to emulate it:

The rising star of morning had preceded the beams of dawn
So that dawn itself might shake out its shining dew
And the sun make the world gorgeous with its flaming light.
The lords rise hastily, their troops with them,
And seize their arms and run to the walls.
Right arms fought a hard battle inside and out:
Those inside defend, whilst our men throw darts
And weapons, sticks, and indeed stones and stakes.
The effort was immense, but in vain.
So they retreated, unable to overthrow
The towers and walls, susceptible to no force.
Seeing that their efforts were in vain, our men
Stop fighting, but carry on the siege. (Robert the Monk, 4.1)

The Turks were so confident in the strength of Antioch, that in the evening darkness they opened their gates and let loose archers who came under the shadow of night and fired their arrows toward the Christians. A woman was walking before the tent of Bohemond, and in one moment an arrow pierced her gentle body and her life was gone. The Franks responded by quickly posting watchers throughout the camp to eye the lurking enemies, and by building a castle to safeguard them from the stealth killers. A large body of Turks rushed from the castle of Harim from a close distance and ambushed the men.

The Christians sent a thousand of their men into a valley, and when they were met by the Turks they fled and so the chase began. The Turks, like good Asiatics, spurned their horses on, and the Christians took refuge with their army. Now the two forces were nigh between each other; the Turks trusted in their numbers, the Christians in their God. Swords were unsheathed; cries to bloodshed were unleashed from the viscous mouths of men, while the shouts of war for God was heard on that side of the army whose standard was the Cross. Two Christians were slain in the battle, and countless Turks were taken prisoner, and their heads were cut before the Muslim warriors who stood watching on the walls of the famous city. After this victory, the Armenians were free to approach the Crusaders without fear, and sell food to them. (Robert the Monk, 4.1-2)

A greater battle was forged in due time. One can only imagine the site of his battle: tens of thousands of Muslims, efficiently ranked, all from the lands ruled under the crescent–Persians, Arabs, and Medes, men from Damascus and Aleppo. And before their deceived eyes stood a force of thirty-thousand knights and soldiers, all hand-picked for this fight. The Muslims were overjoyed, thinking their enemy ready to be taken by Turkish hands and stricted by chains.

As their hands were shaking with the desire to kill, the hopes of the two armies were unto themselves engaged in a war: one was that of the City of Satan, striving for the obliteration of the Faith, the massacre of the faithful, and the complete triumph of falsehood; the other was that of the City of God, aspiring for the Truth to conquer all error.

The two armies rushed with the greatest intensity, with the knights cutting down the Turks as the scythe rips through the harvest. Turkish horsemen fell into the presence of footsoldiers who cut them down and made great slaughter. The second column of Muslims came, and immediately were their ears taken by the sounds of battle and cries, the clash of armour against armour, the hooves of horses beating desperately on the cold earth. The newcomers saw, and sheer terror grabbed hold of all of them. The Muslims ran, and the Christians pursued after them, only to grab hold of victory.

Bohemond later went before his armies and declared before his weary and starving troops:

You men have been distinguished up to now as outstanding soldiers. God has upheld you through the many dangers of various battles and given you victory. You have an impressive track record. So why are you muttering against God simply because you are suffering from pangs and famine? When he stretches out his hand to you, you exult; now he withdraws it, you despair. It seems as if you love not the giver but the gifts; now the one who is generous but the results of their generosity. When he is generous God is treated as your friend; when he ceases to give, you seem to consider him unworthy and irrelevant. …Right now he is testing you through the deprivations of famine and the incessant attacks of your enemies. If they had inflicted as many injuries on us as we have on them, if they had killed as many of us as we have on them, if they had killed as many of us as we had slaughtered of them, any of us who remained alive would have every right to complain — but not one would be able to complain because not one would remain alive. So do not lose confidence, but keep your courage up. Whether you live in him or die for him you will be blessed.

With such great words came great exalting of the spirits, and aspirations, of the soldiers. But yet hunger did not leave, nor did it refrain from its cruel travails. And to their help came a number of Armenian and Syrian Christians, with that hospitality common to the East, and they found whatever food they could find, and gave to the Crusaders. (Robert the Monk, 4.9-11)

But soon, from famine, desperation, anguish and hopelessness, came valor, valiancy, and the urge to war against the enemy of the Cross. A messenger arrived and reported that innumerable thousands of Turks were on their way, marching with the confidence that the Christians were now to be vanquished. Men who were unable to walk now stood upright and ready to quarrel; they raised their hands to heaven and praised God as though victory was already theirs. To them death under the scimitar was superior to perishing under the torments of hunger.

To such men, with mouths dry as deserts, stomaches as empty as the pockets of pilgrims, and hearts as swelled with the spirit of hope as the wandering preachers of ancient Europe, to die for something was greater than dying of something. The sun went low and darkness overran the land, and the Christians made ready their ambushes. The sun had arisen, and just as dawn brought the first light to the world, they set their sights upon the enemy, and never before had they seen such numbers of enemy troops, riding upon their horses, swift like lightening, and arms strong but light like feathers to shoot off arrows into the cruel air that hovers in the midst of brutish battles. The knights made the sign of the Cross, outstretched their hands toward heaven and gave themselves up–all with might, mind, strength and heart–to the God who crushed the devil upon Calvary.

In moments all that could be seen were men clashing like waves smashing into imposing summits in the midst of a might tempest. Turks rode on their horse; they were struck by lances and violently fell off to the ground. Other Muslims rode around the fray and with speed and agility fired arrows into the knights.

The men fought, with one the Christian crying out to God and the Turks barking like dogs to bring fear into their enemies. The saints heard such growls, and they were not afraid; they laughed in scorn and in mockery. Bohemond leaped himself into the ranks of Muslims, and with his men fortified the courage of the others.

When the Muslims looked up and saw so close them the banners of the Christians hovering above their heads, and the swords of the saints slashing all around them, all their fortitude dissipated like the fragile foundations of their heresy. The victory was to the horror of the Muslims, and to the joy of the native Christians who brought their congratulations to the men. (Robert the Monk, 4.14-16)

When the Crusaders were besieging Antioch, the Turks, in hatred of the Gospel, began to throw at their opposition the heads of the Greek, Syrian, and Armenian Christians they persecuted. The crusaders, upon seeing this, went into great grief and trepidation, (Fulcher of Chartres, chron. 1.15.9-12) but they still continued on. At a place called the “Iron Bridge”, the crusaders stopped an army of Turks from oppressing Christians living in the lands surrounding Antioch. (Anselme of Ribemont to Manasses II, in Edward Peters, The First Crusade, ch. v, p. 224)

Before the city the men began to construct a castle, and as they toiled and built they were ambushed, and a thousand were slain. The news was brought to the attention of the Crusaders, and so filled with rage were they, that they rushed toward the enemy with great speed. The numbers of the Christians were seen, but quickly they increased, and so numerous did they become that Turks fled toward the bridge. So narrow was their path that they could not escape from the ferocity of the knights. Poisoned arrows could not work, and nor could their arms outmatch the skill of a Frankish fighter.

Fight nor flight possible, only death. Countless heads struck off, and no matter how tired the Christians grew, they did not cease in cutting down the enemy. Godfrey, set ablaze with tremendous fury, struck an enemy with one blow, and the body of the slain was found cut in two. One Turk, riding upon his horse with a body lofty and robust, charged at Godfrey and hammered down his sword toward his neck. Godfrey blocked the strike with his shield, and in one move of agility plunged his sword into the left side of his shoulder-blades with such ferociousness that his chest split down the middle, his spine was afflicted by the blade, and his head slipped right down.

The horse of this giant rode away with remains of the body into Antioch, and upon its arrival all that was heard were screams of the people, for he was their emir. The ruler of Antioch, as he fought with valor, was struck down, and twelve other emirs never saw life again in that day. The Turks flung themselves into a river only to be struck by lances and slain. Five thousand were killed upon that bridge; blood tainted the water like black ink shooting forth the fleeing octopus, and in moments the water turned red like the Nile. No longer did the Crusader hear the insults of the Muslims coming from behind the walls of the city, all that he heard was the silence of fear. (Robert the Monk, 4.17-21)

During the siege, the Count of Flanders rushed impetuously into the phalanxes of some of the enemy which was so shocking and unexpected that these Turks ran away in search of refuge. The Count did not sheath his sword until he removed a hundred jihadists from life. In returning to his companion Bohemund, the Count saw twelve thousand Turks coming from his rear, and rising up on the nearest hill was a countless multitude of enemy foot-soldiers.

He quickly informed the army and with a small number of men fiercely attacked the immense wave of Turks who then attempted to encircle the whole of the crusaders. The saintly fighters, thanks to their foresight, prevented this strategy from succeeding. Turks, accompanied by Arabs, attempted to use arrows, and in response the knights utilized their swords in close quarter combat, which made the archers useless. In the midst of the siege of Antioch, as arrows darkened the air, the tall and brawny (See Belloc, The Crusades, ch. iv, p. 48) Bohemund made this profound command to his constable Robert:

Go as quickly as you can, like a brave man, and remember our illustrious and courageous forefathers of old. Be keen in the service of God and the Holy Sepulchre, and bear in mind that this battle is not carnal, but spiritual. Be, therefore, the bravest athlete of Christ. Go in peace. The Lord be with you everywhere. (See Edward Peters, The First Crusade, ch. iv, p. 158, The Sufferings of the Crusaders: The Gesta Version)

At these words Robert, like a raging lion, charged and leaped over the Turkish ranks. Upon seeing this, his companions followed and in one accord attacked the enemy. (See Edward Peters, The First Crusade, ch. iv, p. 159, The Sufferings of the Crusaders: The Gesta Version)

This battle becomes all the more exceptional, most miraculous, by the fact that during the siege sixty thousand Muslim soldiers could not withstand the ferociousness of only forty knights, who with their arduous belief in the Gospel and skill in sword and spear, compelled all of these to retreat. The Crusaders took the towers of city, and the key tower they had taken with the help of the local Christian population who opened its gates. (See Belloc, The Crusades, ch. v, p. 89)

A meeting was conveyed between the leaders of the Crusade and the Muslim ambassadors. The Muslims expressed their unbelief that the Christians came as pilgrims, since they arrived holding weapons and for purpose of warfare. The Crusaders replied with this zealously direct declaration, remembering all of the defenseless pilgrims slain and abused before the war:

Nobody with any sense should be surprised at us coming to the Sepulchre of Our Lord as armed men and removing your people from these territories. Any of our people who came here with staff and scrip were insulted with abominable behaviour, suffered the ignominy of poor treatment and in extreme cases were killed. The land may have belonged to those people for a long time but it is not theirs; it belonged to our people originally and your people attacked and maliciously took it away from them, which means that it cannot be yours no matter how long you have had it: for it is set out by divine decree that what was unjustly removed from the fathers shall be restored by divine mercy to the sons. Neither should your people take any pride in having overcome the effeminate Greek race because, by order of divine power, the payback will be exercised by Frankish swords on your necks. And let those who do not already know be aware that it is not down to me to overturn kingdoms but to Him through Whom kings reign. These people say they want to tolerate us with good humour if we are willing to cross their lands with scrip and staff. Let their concessions be flung back in their faces because, whether they want it or not, our shortages will be met and dispelled by their treasures. Since God has granted us Jerusalem, who can resist? No human strength can inspire us with terror because when we die we are born; when we gain eternal life. So go and tell those who sent you that we will not lay down the arms we took up at home until we have captured Jerusalem. We place our trust in Him who teachest my to hands war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms; the road will be opened by our swords, all wrongdoing will be eradicated and Jerusalem captured. It will be ours not by virtue of human toleration but through the justice of divine decrees. It is by God’s countenance that Jerusalem will be judged ours. (Quoted by Robert the Monk, 5.2)

Take notice of these words, that the very thought of toleration is given no leeway, only the will of God and the chivalric swords of justice. How many times have we heard today that Jerusalem can be a home to all religions, or to Islam, Judaism, and Christianity? This is the creed of the moderns, but it is blasphemy to the saint, and absolute sacrilege to those men of old who subdued kingdoms and valiantly drove out the heretics from the land upon which God walked.

A truce was negotiated, terms were agreed upon, and the gates of the city were open. Franks walked freely amongst the citizens, and the common man of Antioch visited without hinderance the camps of the knights with the utmost delight.

This story, unto itself, explains why Obama would hate the Crusades: they go against everything that he is striving for now. He is supporting the jihadists, and if the Crusaders were alive today, they would not only fight against the jihadists, but they would also fight against him.

This story that I have just presented is a part of the upcoming book that will be coming out within this year.

This is just one of the many theological discourses that I have written on Christian militancy from the upcoming book, which will be the most extensive study every written on Christian warfare. But before the book comes out, get the new 2-disk DVD special on Christian militancy, which is just a taste of upcoming book.

    To all those who elected and still support this farce of a President (including 2 libtard aunts of mine), I hope this is a proud day for you – the man who promised to unite the country, ‘no red states or blue states’, yadayadayada, all he has done is to divide and conquer right in front of your blind eyes. I am so furious about his stupid speech today that I can’t sleep for thinking about it.

    • Impeach Obama Now!

      Julie, I have relatives in Minnesota who still support Obama! I know your pain! I can’t even talk politics with them.

            And I will add you to our Divine Mercy prayer at 3 pm every day – the prayer Jesus asked to be said by all–now Divine Mercy Sunday has been proclaimed the Sunday after Easter.
            God Bless

          • Grandmere

            Thanks, Woody. I love the Divine Mercy on EWTN. Everything worked out well with the family and all to His glory.

          Julie, I must be seeing things–did I just see you on that other site “jousting” with that Sociopath “Edwin” – don’t waste your time he knows nothing about the Church.

            No need to call your optometrist, that was me. I just put in a few punches (scripture) that refuted his so-called beliefs, no plan on going back to the site, just one time deal because it came up on Disqus.

          • Julie LaBrecque

            Your article has nice points, I don’t agree with the rapture occurring before the appearance of the anti-Christ or the tribulation. Jesus words stating not to be deceived by the anti-Christ or to go to the desert or inner room are rendered meaningless if his disciples have been raptured out. The one great sign that we are given is the mass conversion of Jews after the fullness of the gentiles has come in, Romans 11.

          • Vernon

            Absolutely Julie. Indeed we should be watching for these things.

          • Woody

            Agree, the “rapture” was started by John Darby and his skullery maid, hundreds of years too late to have been promised by Jesus Who never mentioned it, nor any of the Apostles. (this can be easily “googled” by the way.

          • Julie LaBrecque

            It’s a pipe dream invented to steal sheep and keep the coffers full.

          • Woody

            Julie, I don’t know if you are aware, but opening on Valentine’s Day is this disgusting movie, “Fifty Shades of Gray,” which promotes “violence against women.” So St Gabriel has in the works now a “Rosary” each day until Valentine’s Day to block any success of this farce, under the title “Fifty Beads” of Gray” it started with nine days to go (no accident per Fr Groeshal), the length of a Novena; when in its place we are praying that another Christian Movie is also beginning on the same day (again no accident) “Old Fashion something?” and so we, and other women’s groups are praying that it overwhelms the bad movie.
            Anyone can join in with any prayers they would like to say.

            God Bless

          • Grandmere

            Love Fr Groeshel.

        He is consistent I must say– “I cannot remember when he last told the truth. With so many people still believing in a liar, we really have a stupid nation.

      I got idiotic relatives also that supported Obama. They all have one thing in common, they watch America Idol, Oprah and sports and don’t have a clue of what’s going on in the world…they couldn’t name a senator.

      • susan

        Sorry Bobby. I was reading your last sentence “They all have one thing in common, they watch American Idol, Oprah, and sports and don’t have a clue of what’s going on in the world…they couldn’t name a senator”

        Joe Biden was on my mind..especially since he’s announced he’s rejecting Benjamin Netanyahu..(May all God’s wrath fall upon Biden’s own head and upon his family’s heads for this evil deed)

        What I thought you wrote was …They could even be a senator! Let’s face it.. We have some evil and or stupid Senators in office. May G-d replace them with leaders after his own heart!!!

        The sifting has begun. It will become severe. Take comfort from Theodores words. Please pray for me as well.

        • 1Bobby8

          I will Susan… God bless you

          • Woody

            Oh, boy my prayer box is getting full, but you just fit–you are in, too.

          • 1Bobby8

            Thank you Woody, you pray for me and I’ll pray for you…God bless

        • Woody

          Joe Biden has an IQ of 17, 2 points below BOs; The Pharisees answered it once – “Can anything good come out of Scranton?”

          • j7h

            LOL!!

    • Woody

      Yes, Obama, a Muslim, hates the Crusades because he lost when, at the Battle of Lepanto Our Lady’s Rosary “kicked butt” (excuse me Mom for my language but this describes it the best) where a far out-numbered Christian fleet faced the Turks and their ships sails suddenly became “becalmed”: (Go Our Lady)

      At the Battle of Lepanto, the Holy League lost 50 galleys and suffered approximately 13,000 casualties. This was offset by the freeing of a similar number of Christian slaves from the Ottoman ships. In addition to the death of Ali Pasha, the Ottomans lost 25,000 killed and wounded and an additional 3,500 captured. Their fleet lost 210 ships, of which 130 were captured by the Holy League. Coming at what was seen as a crisis point for Christianity, the victory at Lepanto stemmed Ottoman expansion in the Mediterranean
      and prevented their influence from spreading west.

      Also, See Shoebat’s excellent research entitled “How the Catholic Church Saved Western Civilization”

      • Julie LaBrecque

        I never tire of hearing and reading the accounts of the Battle of Lepanto. Go MAMA! ( Satan hates her, he got thrown down before she came up, HAH!! )

  • Kamau40

    There is no doubt Obama is Muslim Jihadist. The very sad fact that people were warned and didn’t bother to listen including some of my own relatives; but instead laughed at those who tried to blow the trumpet before he was first elected in 2008 and then again unfortuantely in 2012. In reality, the consequences will be unbelievably serious very soon. The Holy War will be here soon, so GET READY!!

    • j7h

      Right on, Kamau!

      • Fhr68

        Yes me to , seeing that pres Mohammed Obama is making such a sticky out of the crusades, Theos timing is perfect , it was on the radio all day at work today, had a great day listening to historians chew up Obamas historical errors.

        • 1Bobby8

          I hope that this is Obama’s undoing, maybe the ones with their head in the sand will finally wake up… God bless you

        • j7h

          Darn! I wish I could have heard that radio broadcast you got to hear.

          • Fhr68

            Do you have sirus radio? People are calling in and voicing their opinions America is waking up 🙂 Thank God. It’s still a big discussion topic. You should of heard this lady defending Obama while the radio hosts slammed her down on the topic of islamophobia. Priceless music to my ears. Shoebat.com , jihad watch, atlas scrubs , and political Islam are going to be very busy websites. Sister Hatunes websites are under constant attacks, but then again she is a saint as far as I’m concerned. No surprise there.

          • j7h

            No I don’t have it right now. The dealership I bought my car from cut out the cigarette lighter due to some malfunction with it, and they ddidn’t replace it. So I can’t put in the adapter to get Sir us radio until that is fixed. Sounds like that program was a real blast to listen to. That poor woman. I hope she wakes up to the truth before it’s too late for her.

    Please pray for Grandmere today. I am dealing with serious family problems.

      I feel your pain, Grandmere. Sometimes it’s hard to keep it all together. These are difficult times, but remember they are temporary. Try to keep your focus on the Kingdom and do the best you can.

        • 1Bobby8

          Yes, I’ll pray for all the good people on this site.

    • SuzyQ

      Just said a prayer for you Grandmere.

  • RodK1975

    This smug, pompous SOB… I can’t think of anything else to say I’m so pissed… He’s an enemy of the Cross.

  • Vernon

    In Obama’s speech, he said that the Crusaders committed horrible acts in the name of Christ. The Crusaders fought against Muslim tyranny. Obama surely knows history. That man stood before Christians at a Christian prayer breakfast and pretty much spat on the crusaders for fighting against Islam and calling it evil! okaaay…starting to feel quite annoyed, like Julie. This man is a Muslim Devil!!!

  • AnthonyM

    I couldn’t listen to all his message. It is not just the nonsense he says, but the way he lectures us as a superior, enlightened teacher. He shows none of the gifts of the Holy Spirit: wisdom, understanding, knowledge, counsel, fortitude, piety and fear of the Lord.

    • j7h

      Nope. Because he’s no Christian.

  • bill hally in pa

    Their is no reason why, with the evidence piled up against Oboma, that we can’t lock him up in Gwamtomono Bay Prison. And water board that muslim till he confesses to all his crimes and deceit

    • Julie LaBrecque

      He’d look swell in orange.

      • j7h

        Yes! His skin color would be well complimented by it.

  • bill hally in pa

    That because he’s a muslim and they are not entitled to those gifts that the Holy Spirit gives willingly

  • jean robinson

    Obama is paving the way for the anti Christ.

  • j7h

    Antioch (Antakya in Turkish) is a beautiful city. What a shame that the place where Christians were first called Christians should be taken again.

  • j7h

    Good luck with that. It’ll never happen, save a miraculous act of God.

  • j7h

    Very true.

  • j7h

    Obama is just spouting what everyone all over the world has been taught to believe about the crusades. I remember being taught the same lies in school when I was growing up. Christians believe it, too, for the most part. So they feel guilty for it, even though it’s a lie they’ve bought into.

  • j7h

    Because they’re in cahoots with him. Congress is as full of malarkey as the Senate and every other branch of govt. The whole Republican Democrat thing is a stage show to fool the public.

    Obama is the enemy of Christianity and anything else that’s good.

    Sorry Ted. I’m experiencing boonies technical difficulties. But what I’ve seen so far is wonderful. Sobering….but oh so wonderful! Thank you. Is it possible to pre-order the book?

  • Higlac

    Good luck with that!!!!! He obviously HATES us Christians and Our Lord Jesus Christ. Remember how at Notre Dame he DEMANDED that everything “Christian” be covered up? How he avoids churches like the plague? How he a few times has admitted even on TV that he’s a Moslem???

    He is the enemy not only of the USA but of the ENTIRE West!!! EVERYBODY should ignore his orders, requests, &c. and SHUN HIM like the plague – and the same thing with ALL those who serve him directly or indirectly!!!

    • Woody

      And does anyone recall that the Democrats at their last convention took a “Voice vote” and voted God out of their Convention.
      They tried to cover it up but the “Yeahs” clearly outnumbered the “Nays”

      • j7h

        No, I actually had not heard that. But I’m not surprised. They only voted to do officially what they’ve already been doing in practice for decades. They waylay only themselves, though. In the end, God gets the last laugh.

    Thanks Theodore,
    Well… nevertheless …re: Prayer Breakfast… I did watch at c-span…

    I think there were yet at least 2 ‘modern-time-CRUSADERS’ 🙂 …yes
    and I wish we here in Europe and Germany would have those events too with those
    great testimonies:
    Well, to the Glory of our Heavenly Father by our Lord Jesus Christ’s Grace:

    1) The prayer-‘crusader’ Dr. Kent Brantley (Ebola Survivor)
    http://www.c-span.org/video/?c4526597/dr-kent-brantley-prayer

    2) The testimony-‘crusader’ Darrell Waltrip – I guess with

    his Best ‘Race’ – A ‘Final Call’??? … Obama heard it , the Dalai, and countless more… !!!
    ‘Former NASCAR driver and noted hall-of-famer Darrell Waltrip was just feet away from President Barack Obama when he delivered a pointed message to an audience that included the Dalai Lama: “If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your lord and
    savior … you are going to hell.” ‘ http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2015/02/05/nascar-legend-delivers-pointed-message-about-jesus-and-salvation-at-national-prayer-breakfast/
    http://youtu.be/wRzVBlerYhk?t=15m30s
    “If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your lord and savior, if you don’t
    have a relationship, if he’s not the master of your life, if you’ve never
    gotten on your knees and asked him to forgive you of your sins, or if you are
    just a pretty good guy or a pretty good gal, you’re going to go to hell.”

    Praise the Lord!
    Please watch the Darrell Waltrip’s speech (27 breathtaking minutes!!) http://www.c-span.org/video/?c4526489/darrell-waltrip

  • Julie LaBrecque

    I will certainly lift you up in prayer, am very sorry for your loss of friends, so-called friends. The good Lord warned us that even family members will turn on us. Forgive them, then go on with your life, maybe someday they will repent. I am glad to know that the things of this world have no hold on you, that is one of the hallmarks of being a true a disciple of Jesus. Blessings.

    • j7h

      Amen, Julie. I whole-heartedly concur.

  • susan

    What is that next to your right shoulder? Glitches are still interfering with the video. I loved the Crusader story. It feels like it will repeat itself in another victory when the time has come.

  • The POTUS isn’t even bothering to hide his contempt (nor his ignorance) of Christianity nor the Crusades. He should be booted out of office, but the rabble who voted him in are too complacent to bother with it.

    • Woody

      yes, the rabble who voted him in are the ones who don’t have to work and get “freebies” which Hillary (Remember Bill who said about her ‘I never slept with that woman, and “it depends on how you define IS??) will continue along with her support with the Muslim Brohood.
      God Bless, Rudy

    Much further evidence that the most corrupt and wicked President in US history is a stealth Jihadist who also supports terrorism and chaos. How much longer will the Western Church’s and the American people remain silent and tolerate evil? The end result will be deadly. See attached article including the video clippings within the link.

  • Woody

    Yes, and I just added you too to our “prayer box” – boy it is overflowing and Jesus loves this; I will also add your former friends too since I had the same thing happen to me, and we are obliged to “forgive everyone.” (look at Peter, how dumb he was)
    God Bless

  • Woody

    An easy comparison is a “no-brainer” Jesus “love everyone” versus the prophet, “kill everyone.”

    • Julie LaBrecque

      And, ‘woman is the glory of man’ versus ‘woman is trash for man.’

  • Grandmere

    I will certainly pray for you. Count yourself lucky when you have few friends. If they are true and like minded a few is all you need. Remember the old song – What a friend we have in Jesus. Love .

  • Grandmere

    The only person he will ever bow down before is the Lord Jesus Christ.

    • j7h

      That’s right grandmere. Whether he believes it now or not, he will bow before Christ and acknowledge His lordship one day. Would that he would choose to do so now, and thereby save his soul.

  • susan

    At last no glitches! I thought there was some funding law passed last year. Does anyone know about this? Wonderful article Ted. I know there’s a lot on your plate. I hope you leave enough for sleeping and dreaming 🙂

  • j7h

    Sorry to hear of that, Higlac. How sad! But you’re not alone. I have also experienced such losses for the same reasons. You are right, we must be prepared to suffer the loss of all for the sake of Christ. You have friends here. If we never meet in this life, we’ll meet on the other side, in a glorious reunion. Stand true, my brother. God bless you.

  • j7h

    You are welcome here, Von Arney. Here you will find some weird people, some hateful people, but some friends as well. God bless you!

  • j7h

    Blazen, stand true and stand strong in Christ. I know you are, but I just want to encourage you. Many are suffering the same thing. I have those in my family too. God will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him. It’s going to get even tougher, but son’s be dismayed by the storm. Cling to Christ with all your heart, mind, and strength. He will sustain you!

  • Julie

    He is a great opponent to the Catholic Church…I don’t have reference to video…but P Francis kept holding on to his hand and shaking it for some time and Obama kept looking away…the Pope was letting him know he was on to him…nobody picked up on it………but that is what I saw him doing..P Francis wouldn’t let go…………..awkward even…but deliberate.

  • Fhr68

    Your not alone, I’m the black sheep of my family and lost many friends that turned against me, I’m well over it. It tells me I’m on the right track, and so are you. God love your heart.
