FBI Raids Three Churches in Texas and Georgia

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 6/24/2022 5:35:19 PM

Federal agents raided three churches, one in Texas and two in Georgia, on Thursday. All of the churches are near military bases and have been accused of being cults. In Texas, federal agents raided the Assembly of Prayer Christian Church in Killeen. “I can confirm the FBI was executing court authorized law enforcement activity today in the vicinity of the intersection of Massey St. and E. Rancier Ave., in Killeen, Texas. No additional information will be released at this time,” FBI Special Agent Carmen Portillo said in a statement to local station KWTX.

To the best of my knowledge, there is no federal law against cults. There is, in fact, a Constitutional Amendment protecting religions. Absent objective fraud or assault, it's not a government matter. Certainly not a federal matter. My guess is the "cult" is a boy scout troop or 4-H club.

After the slaughter of the Branch Davidians (who were certainly weirdos) at the hands of the Clintons and the FBI, I view all of this with great skepticism.

this is, pn its face, deeply concerning. Being in, starting, joining or protesting against a cult are all legally protected activities. there better be very good reason for the feds to raid a church/ Ask yourself what significant hurdles law enforcement would have to jump in order to search a Mosque. Rumours of terrorist activity or fundamentalist leanings would not be enough to issue that particulat warrant. You would probably need photographic evidence of a Boom Boom factory to get a warrant to enter a Mosque. ANd rightly so, the socalled separation of church and state (I know I know) works both ways. Hopefully new information comes out but right now I (based on no facts whatsoever) fear that they were targeted because the "Greatest Threat to American Democracy TM" are current and former members of the military and somebody in town on a code pink vigil overheard a MAGA comment in a diner.

Why you can't depend on the federal government to protect you anymore. They have the time and manpower to raid three churches because they "may" do something in the future. But they don't have the time or manpower to raid the "Jane's Revenge" group, who has been doing violent acts of domestic terrorism these past few weeks and swear to do much more in the future!!!!!!

January 20, 2025 President Trump declares FBI and DOJ shutdown effective immediately. All employees are FIRED ASAP because they serve no purposes other than political prisoner arrests. We will survive; direct Military to assume duties until new personnel are put in place. Start interviewing personnel now and replace ASAP and replace with contractor personnel until official, vetted government people are put in place!

FTA: “The concern is that he has made us merchandise. It’s no longer a church. It’s just a fraudulent, money-making empire. It used to be a church,” former church member Jenessa Wright told WTOC. The Assembly of Prayer Church has been accused by former members of being a cult and, more specifically, targeting military members to join. It is near Fort Gordon. ----- Welcome to the state of Christianity in America today. Passing the Plate is now a crime worthy of calling the FBI? And because "dozens" of whiney millenials take to Google and Facebook and SAY it's a "cult" because soldiers join the church, it MUST be a cult! Call Brandon! So now will the FBI make every church near a military base "pass muster" for acceptability? I seem to remember that the Constitution guarantees the RIGHT of an individual to practice his/her religion, even if it is considered by some to be a "cult." This raid is WRONG on so many levels it's amazing.

What part of the 1st amendment do these morons not understand? Freedom to practice our religion is just that. FREEDOM. It doesn't say anywhere that the FBI has the right to decide or define what constitutes a religion. Unless you have absolute proof there is illegal activity going on, the FBI needs to back off and stop harassing Christians. Given these churches are close to military bases, I am also suspicious about that motivation as well.

My retired FBI investigator friend agreed with me this evening when I said "The FBI leadership looks more and more like the KGB these days", and he said in sad commentary, "And they choose all the local SACs." (Special Agents in Charge). He commented about a topic that related to the FBI arresting criminals, with "yeah, that was back in the old days when we arrested criminals, no politicians."

Maybe its a weird church, maybe its not. But being weird is not a Federal reason for a raid. Could it be that they don't want fundamental Christianity taught to the nearby soldiers? A real cult I would say is Planned Parenthood. Their members don't allow, and bomb opposing views apparently..

Catfish are generally brown with dark spots, but a 15-year-old boy fishing in Tennessee had a catch of a lifetime when he hooked one that is all-white. Edwards Tarumianz reeled in a giant fish on the morning of June 28, but he and the rest of the crew were more impressed by the catfish's stunning hue rather than its monstrous size, as first reported on by Field and Stream. The blue catfish was completely white with bright pink and purples coloring around its fins and face, which could be a result of either albinism or leucism.

On Thursday and Friday, several new polls were released showing the tenuous position of the Democrat Party heading into November’s elections. Far from seeing a game-changing rebound due to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, that status quo appears to have been preserved, with Republicans holding a modest lead on the generic ballot in each of the last three surveys. Biden’s approval numbers are even worse news for Democrats, with the president falling below 30 percent in key states like Nevada. Historically, a second-year president this down in the dumps is a huge drag on their party for the first midterm,

To put his statement in context, Biden’s baffling declaration of the insignificance of DUI for illegal immigrants came during a VICE news town hall on minority issues. He was asked about his stance on illegal immigration and deportation of immigrants who have been convicted or charged with felony law-breaking while in the United States.

In response to the record inflation, which is being caused by reckless and destructive spending by the Biden administration and the Federal Reserve, the FED raised interest rates by 75 basis points last month – the largest increase since 1994 – in an effort to slow the Bidenflation tidal wave.

A petition to administrators at George Washington University to fire Justice Clarence Thomas from its law faculty has received over 9,000 signatures, but in a move that is decidedly at odds with campus culture today, the university has adamantly refused to fire Thomas and even defended “the robust exchange of ideas.”

Not since the decade leading up to the Civil War has there been as much discussion about the possibility of the United States splitting into two or more countries as there has been in the past 10 years. The reality is that this nation has effectively split into two countries which are, for the moment, tenuously living side-by-side. Race or ethnicity has been the underlying foundation in the creation of every nation in the history of mankind except the United States, as its founding was based on the tenet that all men are created equal and are endowed with certain unalienable rights that government cannot abrogate.

Most Christians who oppose abortion believe that the practice involves killing. The Bible is pretty clear about that. Campus Reform reports: ‘There is no biblical basis for the ban on abortion,’ Yale Divinity School claims. Yale Divinity School (YDS) published a pro-abortion statement that opposed the recent Supreme Court decision to reverse Roe v. Wade, claiming there is no “biblical basis” for abortion bans.(Snip)Sterling cites Exodus 21:22-25 to suggest that the Bible distinguishes between the life of a child and a fetus.(Snip)“It is not at all clear that today’s decision reflects a text like Exodus 21:22–25.”
Axelrod: There's a sense that things are
out of control and Biden's not in command

Inflation is mostly to blame for Biden’s catastrophic approval rating, of course. But I think what Axelrod describes here is an underrated reason for flagging left-wing support. It’s not (just) that his policies aren’t progressive enough. It’s the sense that he doesn’t “fight,” to borrow a term from righty populists. And when he does make a gesture towards fighting, like when he endorsed creating an exception to the filibuster for abortion rights, he’s destined to end up losing that fight. It doesn’t help either that he’s 79 years old. Watch two minutes of Axelrod here, which picks up with him discussing Biden’s call for a filibuster carve-out.
