Recognizing the commencement of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting and spiritual renewal, and commending Muslims in the United States and throughout the world for their faith.
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Ms. EDDIE BERNICE JOHNSON of Texas (for herself, Mr. MEEKS of New York, and Mr. ELLISON) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs
Recognizing the commencement of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting and spiritual renewal, and commending Muslims in the United States and throughout the world for their faith.
Whereas since the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001, threats and incidents of violence have been directed at law-abiding, patriotic Americans of African, Arab, and South Asian descent, particularly members of the Islamic faith;
Whereas, on September 14, 2001, the House of Representatives passed a concurrent resolution condemning bigotry and violence against Arab-Americans, American Muslims, and Americans from South Asia in the wake of the terrorist attacks;
Whereas it is estimated that there are approximately 1,500,000,000 Muslims worldwide;
Whereas Ramadan is the holy month of fasting and spiritual renewal for Muslims worldwide, and is the 9th month of the Muslim calendar year; and
Whereas the observance of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan commences at dusk on September 13, 2007, and continues for one lunar month: Now, therefore, be it
(1) during this time of conflict, in order to demonstrate solidarity with and support for members of the community of Islam in the United States and throughout the world, the House of Representatives recognizes the Islamic faith as one of the great religions of the world; and (2) in observance of and out of respect for the commencement of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting and spiritual renewal, the House of Representatives acknowledges the onset of Ramadan and expresses its deepest respect to Muslims in the United States and throughout the world on this significant occasion.
Bush White House Event Celebrates Islam
October 4, 2007
[excerpts, emphasis added]
One of the invited guests to Bush's annual event is Congressman Keith Ellison of Minnesota.
Ellison, the only Muslim elected to office, asked to be sworn into his position in Congress with the Koran instead of the Bible.
The Democrat expressed that he is looking forward to Thursday's iftar event at the White House, and noted that he has also engaged in Ramadan observances at the Pentagon and the Capitol.
This week, the House voted unanimously, 376-0, to recognize Islam's holy month of Ramadan. The resolution commended Muslims and hailed the Islamic faith as "one of the great religions of the world."
More pro-Muslim sentiment by the U.S. government was evident on September 25 when a Muslim cleric delivered the House's daily prayer.
The Bible teaches that leaders who embraced, tolerated or celebrated foreign gods brought suffering and disaster upon their nation.

Contrast this ecumenical, traitorous, anti-Christ action of the 2007 US House in passing H.RES.635, betraying the Christian spiritual heritage, foundation, and source of blessing, prosperity, and security for America, with the right-thinking of Mr. Meacham, in his report to the US House Committee on the Judiciary, March 27, 1854, just over 150 years ago:
Congress of the United States of America (March 27, 1854), receives the report of Mr. Meacham of the House Committee on the Judiciary:
No King but King Jesus! (Yeshua Messiah)
www.christianlifeandliberty.net/NoKingbutKingJesus.doc (page 15 of booklet for downloading)
"Had the people, during the Revolution, had a suspicion of any attempt to war against Christianity, that Revolution would have been strangled in its cradle."
"At the time of the adoption of the Constitution and the amendments, the universal sentiment was that Christianity should be encouraged, not any one sect [denomination]. Any attempt to level and discard all religion would have been viewed with universal indignation. The object was not to substitute Judaism or Mohammedism, or infidelity, but to prevent rivalry among the [Christian] sects to the exclusion of others.
It [Christianity] must be considered as the foundation on which the whole structure rests. Laws will not have permanence or power without the sanction of religious sentiment, -- without a firm belief that there is a Power above us that will reward our virtues and punish our vices. [emphasis added]
In this age there can be no substitute for Christianity; that, in its general principles, is the great conservative element on which we must rely for the purity and permanence of free institutions. That was the religion of the founders of the republic, and they expected it to remain the religion of their descendants. There is a great and very prevalent error on this subject in the opinion that those who organized this Government did not legislate on religion. [pp.169-170] [emphasis added]

ARE BIBLE-BELIEVING CHRISTIANS LEADING AMERICA ?
In the previous 109th Congress (2005-2006), the leading religious affiliation of members of Congress was: Roman Catholic (Senate - 24; House - 130; Total - 154, 28.8%). The next largest affiliation was Baptist (Senate - 7; House - 68; Total - 75, 14.1%), followed next by Methodist (Senate - 11; House - 50; Total - 61, 11.4%). The next six, in order, all less than10% total, were: Presbyterian, Epsicopalian, Jewish, Lutheran, Mormon, and United Church of Christ/Congregationalist. All others were less than 1%. [The first Muslim US Congressman in the history of the United States is Rep. Keith Ellison (MN), elected to hold office in the 110th Congress (2007-2008).]
HOW MANY ECUMENICAL MASONS AND ECUMENICAL ROMAN CATHOLICS ARE THERE PRESENTLY IN THE 110th US CONGRESS (2007-2008) ??
For example, these three (known) high-level Freemasons are presently in the US Senate:
"The secret oaths and insoluble bonds of Freemasonry bring them ever closer to their ultimate goals the destruction of Christianity and the establishment of a pagan New World Order."

BOTH FREEMASONRY AND ROMAN CATHOLICISM TEACH THERE ARE MANY PATHS TO HEAVEN. THE TEACHING OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC INSTITUTION IS THAT IF A HINDU, OR BUDDHIST, OR MUSLIM IS TRUE TO THE TEACHINGS OF THEIR RELIGION, THEY WILL ATTAIN HEAVEN. THE FALSE RELIGION OF ROMANISM DOES NOT ACCEPT THE TEACHING OF THE MESSIAH IN JOHN 14:6:
"I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me."
Vatican website: FIDES.ORG
VATICAN - Pope Benedict XVI in Turkey (Agenzia Fides 29/11/2006 - righe 67, parole 938):"The Pope...quoted...Pope John Paul II on the occasion of his visit to Turkey in November 1979: “I wonder if it is not urgent, precisely today when Christians and Muslims have entered a new period of history, to recognize and develop the spiritual bonds that unite us, in order to preserve and promote together, for the benefit of all men, ‘peace, liberty, social justice and moral values’”. Pope Benedict XVI said: “Christians and Muslims belong to the family of those who believe in the one God and who, according to their respective traditions, trace their ancestry to Abraham the Pope continued recalling the teaching of Vatican II (cf. Second Vatican Council, Declaration on the Relation of the Church to Non-Christian Religions Nostra Aetate 1, 3). This human and spiritual unity in our origins and our destiny impels us to seek a common path as we play our part in the quest for fundamental values so characteristic of the people of our time.
THIS IS THE TREACHEROUS LIE OF THE VATICAN'S ECUMENISM, WHICH HAS MADE ITS SERPENTINE WAY INTO THE AMERICAN CULTURE WARS, WHERE MANY BIBLE-BELIEIVNG CHRISTIANS HAVE UNBIBLICALLY (2 Cor. 6:14-18), FOOLISHLY, AND SUICIDALLY YOKED THEMSELVES WITH ROMANISTS, FOR EXAMPLE, IN THE PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT. THIS GREAT ERROR IS DOCUMENTED IN THE BOOK "More Than These: A Call for Reformation," by Mr. Ralph Ovadal, pastor, available at:
ECUMENISM IS A LIE FROM SATAN - IT'S GOAL IS TO DESTROY THE TRUE BIBLE-BELIEVING CHURCH, AND TO FURTHER ESTABLISH RELIGIOUS HEGEMONY FOR THE RELIGIOUS AND CIVIL ORGANIZATION, SEEKING RELIGIOUS AND TEMPORAL RULE, HEADQUARTERED AT THE VATICAN, IN ROME, ITALY. THE VATICAN IS THE LEAD PLAYER IN ESTABLISHING THE NEW WORLD ORDER: ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT, ONE-WORLD MONEY, AND ONE-WORLD RELIGON !

The "Alberto Series" - Testimony of a former Jesuit priest
Alberto Rivera (1935 - 1997)
Alberto Rivera was a Jesuit priest. His job: infiltrate Protestant ministries and destroy them. But one day, while reading his Bible, he came face to face with the truth... salvation doesn't come through good works and the sacraments. It comes only through faith in Jesus! Obeying the Scriptures, he placed his faith in Christ alone and left the Roman Catholic Church.
Pope: Roman Catholic 'Church' only one true church
Repeating centuries of history, Rome has once again revealed its own dominion theology of primacy, and indeed, sole legitmacy, as the only true "church" on earth, in a document approved by the current false prophet occupying the antichrist Vatican, Pope Benedict XVI, on June 29, 2007. This blasphemous, perverted assertion is in fact just the opposite of the Truth. The false religion of Romanism is NOT Biblical Christianity, but is in fact a "Christianized" form of the ancient pagan religion of historical Babylon.
How the Vatican created Islam
How the Vatican created Islam. The astonishing story from an ex-Jesuit priest, Alberto Rivera, which was told to him by Cardinal Bea while he was at the Vatican.
From "The Prophet": www.chick.com/reading/comics/0117/theprophetindex.asp
This information came from Alberto Rivera, former Jesuit priest after his conversion to Protestant Christianity. It is excerpted from "The Prophet," published by Chick Publications, PO Box 662, Chino CA 91708 (http://www.chick.com/). Since its publication, after several unsuccessful attempts on his life, he died suddenly from food poisoning.
LIKEWISE, FREEMASONRY, IS A FALSE, ANTI-CHRISTIAN RELIGION:
For example, Albert Pike (1809-1891), called the "Plato of Freemasonry" - the former "Sovereign Grand Commander of the Supreme Council of Grand Sovereign Inspectors General of the Thirty-third Degree," to whom a monument was erected in Washington, D.C., stated:
"Every Masonic Lodge is a temple of religion and its teachings are instructions in religion."
"It is the universal, eternal, immutable religion."
"Masonry, around whose altars the Christian, the Hebrew, the Moslem, the Brahmin, the followers of Confucius and Zoroaster, can assemble as brethren and unite in prayer to the one God who is above all the Baalim, must needs leave it to each of the initiates to look for the foundation of his faith and hope to the written scriptures of his own religion."(p. 47)
[Quoted in "Masonry, Beyond the Light," by former Witch, former Freemason/Shriner, and former Mormon (now born-again Christian !) William Schnoebelen, sourced from "Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, Supreme Council of the Thirty-Third Degree, Charleston," by Albert Pike.]
Also quoted in Schnoebelen's, "Masonry, Beyond the Light" : (p.44)
The Masonic authority, Albert Mackey:
"Be assured ... that God is equally present with the pious Hindu in the temple, the Jew in the synagogue, the Mohammedan in the mosque, and the Christian in the church."
Also quoted in Schnoebelen's, "Masonry, Beyond the Light" : (p.48)
Another modern Masonic writer, Manly P. Hall (33rd Degree) wrote:
"The true Mason is not creed-bound. He realizes with the divine illumination of his lodge that as a Mason his religion must be universal; Christ, Buddha or Mohammed,the name means little, for he recognizes only the light and not the bearer. He worships at every shrine, bows before every altar, whether in temple, mosque or cathedral, realizing with his truer understanding the oneness of all spiritual truth."

WHAT ABOUT THE ISLAM CONNECTION WITH MASONRY ?
Material taken from "Masonry, Beyond the Light," by former Witch, former Freemason/Shriner, and former Mormon (now born-again Christian !) William Schnoebelen: (pp. 209-210)
Masonry: Beyond the Light - by William Schnoebelen
"The most obvious connection with Islam in the world of the Lodge is, of course, the Shrine. Most don't know that the actual title of the Shriner organization is the "Ancient Arabic Order, Nobles of the Mystic Shrine." "
"Not only is the Shrine openly evocative of Arab culture, the "shrine" is actually the sacred shrine of Islam, the Kaaba in Mecca! Few outsiders realize that behind its exotic, clownish exterior, the Shrine ceremonial is steeped in demonic Islamic religion, utterly foreign to the God of the Bible!"
"For example, the Shrine initiate must swear the usual awful oath on the holy book of the Islamic faith, the Koran, in addition to the Bible, ending thus:"
"... and may Allah, the god of Arab, Moslem and Mohammedan, the God of our Fathers, support me to the entire fulfillment of the same, Amen, Amen, Amen. (Shrine Ritual Monitor, Allen Publishing, pp. 35-39)"
"The Shriner is swearing in the name of Allah. Contrary to popular belief, the Islamic Allah is not just another name for the true God. He has no more resemblance to the God of the Bible than does the "Great Architect." "
"The Muslim denies the deity of Jesus Christ and His resurrection, to say nothing of the gospel of grace. Islam denies all the cardinal fundamentals of the Christian faith.You cannot be a faithful Christian and call Allah the "God of our fathers!" The Shriner is calling a demon named "Allah" his god!"
CASE STUDY: SOUTH CAROLINA HAS SIX TOTAL US CONGRESSMEN
What should concern Bible-believing Christians in South Carolina, is that among the 152 Republicans and 224 Democrats voting "Yea" to commemorate Ramadan, and to call Islam "one of the great religions of the world" were FIVE out of the SIX US House members in the South Carolina congressional delegation, both Republicans and Democrats:
Rep. Henry Brown (R-Hanahan [vic. Charleston] )
Rep. Joe Wilson (R-Springdale [Lexington County] )
Rep. Bob Inglis (R-Travelers Rest)
Rep. John Spratt (D-York)

Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo (Colorado) - professes to be a Christian.“A former Roman Catholic, Tancredo is now a member of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Tancredo
[Praise the Lord that the Father opened Tom Tancredo's eyes, and delivered him from the spiritual bondage, blasphemy (re-sacrifice of the Messiah in the "Mass"), and witchcraft (transubstantiation) of the false religion of Roman Catholicism - see http://www.bereanbeacon.org/, the ministry of former Roman Catholic priest, now born-again Christian, Richard Bennett]
"Not Voting" on H.RES.635.IH, was this GOP Presidential candidate:
Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter (California) - professes to be a Christian (Baptist).
"When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn." Proverb 29:2, KJB
Are we mourning enough already in America ? We have many wicked men (and to our further disgrace, women - Isaiah 3:12), in authority over us. We as a nation are spiritually and morally wicked, and so God has given us the rulers that we deserve (Daniel 4:17, 25, 32).
America is suffering greatly under the rulership of deceived men and women who do not worship the One, True God of the Bible in spirit and in truth, such as the many Freemasons and Roman Catholics that are in the US Congress, and throughout the US Federal Government (e.g., five out of six US Supreme Court Justices are Roman Catholic - Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas, Roberts, and Alito), and in State Governments.
"And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter." Isaiah 59:14, KJB
Biblically, there cannot be JUSTICE without TRUTH.
In America, TRUTH has fallen in the "GATE.
"TRUTH has fallen in the "GATES" of America - the places of authority and power that hold this country together, and so our nation is unravelling. TRUTH has fallen in the churches (and the prophets are not welcome), in families, in government, in education (which should be totally privatized !), in business, in medicine, in the culture at large (music, arts) etc., etc., etc.
Do you who are Christian pro-lifers want to see Child-Murder-by-Abortion ended in America ? It will only be achieved by ESTABLISHING JUSTICE for pre-born human beings, based upon God's TRUTH. That means calling for the END of pre-birth child murder, no "exceptions," no more incremental, "Murder-Regulation" legislation advocated by the Romanist National Right to Life, and no more voting for Republican candidates for office unless they will support Federal and State legislation that will END, NOT REGULATE, pre-birth child-murder (e.g., HR 2597 in the U.S. Congress -see the bill and co-sponsors at http://thomas.loc.go at the Federal Level; and State-Level "personhood" bills such as the Right to Life Act of SC).
