US Christians victims of new-wave Nazism
Recently elected West Texas state senator Charles Perry this week compared ‘a spiritual battle’ against religion in the US to the Holocaust.
The Southern Baptist made the comparison after being sworn in on Tuesday following his victory earlier this month in a special election to replace a retiring state senator.
In his inaugural speech, Perry said a recent trip to a concentration camp in Germany made him draw a comparison between what he believes are efforts by the government to pass laws against religion and the killing of Jews during the Holocaust.
There were 10,000 people that were paraded into a medical office [at the concentration camp in Germany] under the guise of a physical. As they stood with their back against the wall, they were executed with a bullet through the throat. Before they left, 10,000 people met their fate that way.
He then asked:
Is it not the same than when our government continues to perpetuate laws that lead citizens away from God?
The only difference is that the fraud of the Germans was more immediate and whereas the fraud of today’s government will not be exposed until the final days and will have eternal-lasting effects.
Perry said in his speech that while he’ll work to address the state’s financial needs by prioritising state funding and balancing the budget without raising taxes, his biggest challenge will be:
The spiritual battle for the spirit of this nation and the soul of its people.
According to Wiki, Perry is a deacon at Southcrest Baptist Church in Lubbock.
