Quote# 16625

The Christian Falangist Party of America acknowledges God’s sovereignty over political affairs, that the government is given by God and called to His service and that Christians are responsible to actively participate in society and the politics that affect society. Another rock of foundation of the CFPA is our support and defense of Israel and our belief that the Jews returning to their land and bringing Israel back into existence is Bible prophecy being fulfilled which precedes the return of the Messiah our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We also reject any form of anti-Semitism or Racism and hereby resolve that neither of these will ever be a policy, tenant or belief of this political party or Christian Falangist Movement so help us God. We forever base our political convictions on the Holy Bible, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights of these United States of America.

True story: In the last sentence I really read \"blah blah blah\" until I noticed that it wasn't possible that they would put that in the middle of a serious text.

But let's just hope that they are willing to kick Israel's ass when they do things wrong. The world is far to lenient on them, partly because America seems to give them any rights they could possibly want and \"shields\" them from consequences.

God.

Sooo... they are going with the bible and against racism?

What the?

Ah, I forget, contradictions are okay with these illogical imbeciles

The holy bible contradicts the bill of rights and the constitution - you cannot base your political convictions on both of them.

Sounds like a joke, beginning for the geographical references, but it´s a lot compared to the usual fundiness I´ve seen so far.

After a little look at Wikipedia, it looks like \"falangism\" was one Spanish form of fascism... Why am I not surprised?

Responsibility?
Rejecting anti-semitism?
Rejecting racism?
Resolve for something other then death?

This sure doesn't sound like the church I grew up with. Martin Luther must be spinning in his grave...

You do that.

Wouldn't following both the Bible and the Constitution be contradictory? Article 1 and all...

[/i]\"...neither of these will ever be a policy, tenant or belief...\"[/i]


PLEASE, people, for the love of humanity: The word intended in this usage is TENET! A \"tenant\" is one who pays rent for occupying property; a \"tenet\" is a belief, opinion, or dogma of a group of people.

Also, I second the observation regarding the incompatibility of basing their political policies on both the Bible and the Constitution. The Bible is contradictory enough all by itself, but it is magnificently contradictory with regard to the Constitution, the First Amendment of which specifically forbids governmental establishment of religion.

Is there any possibility that this is just a joke?

So... they're fascists who believe in upholding the US Constitution? I don't get it. One would think that the \"Falangist\" in they're name would imply that they are some form of fascists even thought they expressly say that they are not fascists. Funny though that they're anti-Neo-Nazi but have a very swastika like symbol.

Nice swastika on their website, too.

\"We're not anti-semitic, but we want Isreal to exist so the day when the antichrist wipes out 3/4 of it's population out will come sooner, thus motivating Jesus to get off his ass and take care of that whole 'Problem of Evil' thing.\"

Only if you ignore the Bill of Rights a lot.

The swastika was used by people other than Naxis and neo-Nazis, actually. There was a swastika-like symbol used for the elementary school Hitler went to and as far as I know (I'm reading a biography about Hitler right now) the school is not where he became anti-Jew (he developed those feelings later). Other Germanic cultures used the swas, as did others globally, I think.

Sounds pretty darned exciting.

Not bad in theory. I'm a little hazy on how it'd work, though. The Bill of Rights is actually part of the Constitution (it's the first ten Amendments), so no need to list 'em both. That whole Freedom of Religion thing might conflict with the idea of a theocracy on some basic level. Maybe.

Fascists for Jesus. Yay!

As a Jew, I always get a chuckle when Christians try to support Israel for Biblical Reasons, and Jews go along with it. The reason the Christians want Israel to expand into its biblical boundaries is because that will lead to the apocaolypse, when all Jews will either convert or die and burn in Hell forever. if Hitler was a fundie, he'd support Israel expanding to its biblical boundaries.

I can't quite bring myself to yell at a Jew for whipping Hitler out here, though he's easily the most overused reference on this site by a huge stretch.

I'm not clear on how extending Israel's boundaries to the original dimensions would lead directly to the apocalypse. Could you explain that for me?

I've got a phalangeal movement of my own I'd like to show you.

About this whole Jews going back to Israel fufils some prophecy. Aren't we a few tribes short at the mo?

Oh great, the Falange has invaded America. Before you know it they will be shooting anyone they suspect of being a 'Red' just like in the Spanish Civil War.
Viva La Republica!

Clearly the term \"speration of church and state\" has no meaning here...

Theocracy on the other hand...

The Bible's based on the idea that people should be free, right? Certainly there's no horrible punishment for even thinking about doing something God doesn't like.
