Pastors Support President’s Travel Ban

As a lone voice of truth in a desert wasteland of political correctness, we have chosen to prominently place this billboard for maximum impact on the westbound lane of I-40 in western North Carolina.

We understand that the challenge we face today is not primarily political, but rather spiritual. If the 19 Muslim immigrants that attacked America on September 11th had become born again believers in Jesus Christ prior to that dreadful day, there would have been no “September 11th”. The dilemma we face with Islamic terrorism is one of the religion itself.  Plain and simple, Islamic ideology/theology is the problem.

If America refuses to correctly identify the enemy (Islamic ideology), many more Americans will be offered up on the altars of political correctness, pluralism, and post modernism.  Additionally, our government’s expenditure of millions of taxpayer dollars attempting to promote “moderate Islam” as the solution to terrorism has been an abject failure and responsible for the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and ISIS in Syria.

Not until Muslims embrace the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ, will the incessant desire to kill the infidel cease.  Jesus, the only begotten Son of God, is THE Answer to ALL humanity’s need, including that of the Islamic world.

  1. To the editor:

    As a teacher of World History for over 30 years, I wish to express my total support for President Trump’s travel ban. After 9/11 it became painfully obvious we(America) were at war with a religion(ideology) called Islam. Most Americans don’t realize 9/11 was not our first encounter with this dangerous religion. Our third president Thomas Jefferson’s battle with the Barbary Pirates began a conflict with Islam that continues till today. Islam’s self-expressed goal is to establish a “universal caliphate”. This diabolical plan puts Islam at odds with America and the rest of the freedom-loving world. Islam’s Sharia law is totally antithetical to the U.S. Constitution, despite what we are being told by the news media and naive politicians. Even our founding fathers spoke against the “Mohammedans”(Islam), stating that first amendment protection was never intended to protect a religion that was a threat to America’s security. How many more acts of murder will it take to make Americans and the world wake up to the truth about this so-called “religion of peace”. If we continue to ignore the obvious, what happened in Manchester, England will come to a town near us.

  2. About four years ago, I read a book from the local library called Muslim Mafia by P. David Gaubatz. As a result, I have been reading about Islam and discovered some startling facts. I asked a friend who is Egyptian, what is this all about and he said there is no such thing as a Muslim Mafia and the Muslim Brotherhood will bring “peace to the World after they take care of the Jewish problem”. The Muslim Brotherhood is now illegal in Egypt. I think the billboard is a good idea. It reminds the American people of September 11th before the memory fades away. There is uncontrolled immigration going on in America. Too many people with unknown backgrounds are entering America not with the idea of blending into our culture but to change our culture through subtle means to include violence. One just has to read about what is happening in France, the UK, Sweden, and Germany and how they have lost their native cultures to include public chaos . It is now starting to happen here in the USA. I think the facts need to be uncovered and made public.

    1. Well, that said it all right there, didn’t it.

      “Peace to the world after they take care of the Jewish problem”

      Guess what happens after the “Jewish problem” is solved?
      Then there will need to be something done to address the “Christian problem”, the “Hindu problem”, the “atheist problem”, the …….

  3. It is refreshing to finally see a public acknowledgement and warning
    (the 1-40 billboard) of the ideological system called Islam.   As an
    American missionary, I have long been troubled by Islam’s violent
    disregard of our Declaration of Independence’s statement, “We hold these
    truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, and that they
    are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights…LIFE,
    liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  While many may not know it,
    Islam holds, and teaches, the view that all non-Muslims must be
    subjugated to Islam, or be killed if they will not convert. It is vitally
    important that the American people know the truth of what Islam is and
    proposes to establish worldwide–an Islamic caliphate.   Thank you again
    for encouraging comment on this billboard, and thanks to the North
    Carolina Pastors Network for being courageous enough to speak the truth!

    1. “While many may not know it,
      Islam holds, and teaches, the view that all non-Muslims must be
      subjugated to Islam, or be killed if they will not convert. It is vitally
      important that the American people know the truth of what Islam is and
      proposes to establish worldwide–an Islamic caliphate.”

      False. this is a certain school of Islam that teaches this. this Wahabbism. Islam teaches to love a respect any people of the book and to not take up arms unless in defense. As always religon is a vehicle by which people drive their inherent thirst for hatred and violence, that is what Wahabbists do, that is what the Lords Resistance Army does (ugandain Christian terror group).

  4. Naturally, not every Muslim immigrant is coming to American to do us harm but let’s stop playing the charade here and admit that some Islamic immigrants want to come here to kill us for the infidels they claim we are.

    Muslim terrorist groups continue to threaten to kill us and the terrorist incidents in France last year proves ISIS was not bluffing when they said they have sent their soldiers to the West disguised as refugees.

    I have read the executive order and I think some clarity is needed as the left has mischaracterized the travel ban as a Muslim ban. Somethings you should know.

    • Words Muslim, Islam, Jihad, Shariah, or the like, are not in the executive order.
    • The ban does not discriminate against Muslims as the restriction is on ALL immigrants from six nations that intelligence deems as a security threat.
    • The six nations were determined a threat under the Obama administration.
    • The ban is temporary until extreme vetting standards can be put in place.

    The controversy is not citizens supporting the reasonable actions of our government to keep us safe. The real controversy here is the partisan fuss being made over the travel ban which is putting us at great risk.

    1. It’s been almost six months since the Administration tried to put the first travel ban in place. During all this time, have any studies been actually done by the Administration on the adequacy (or lack thereof) of our current vetting process? It seems to me the study, even the implementation of “extreme vetting” procedures and standards could be done with or without an accompanying travel ban.

    2. The sign is factually incorrect, as none of the hijackers were ‘immigrants’: they were all here on work, tourist, or student visas.

  5. I agree with your statement and applaud you for saying what needs to be said. THE TRUTH.

    If some religious leaders feel that people need saving over our own safety. That is his prerogative.
    This is not my opinion. I would prefer not to subject myself to potential bombs where I could get shrapnel wounds, loss of limbs, die a horrible death. In addition subject myself to
    brutal rape as committed by 2 Iraqi’s of a Colorado woman. There is much more. These crimes are not being committed by Buddhists in the name of their religion. No other religion I know of wants to dominate the world. Bravo to the Pastors network.

  6. Good for you, someone has to have the courage and the common sense to do whats right, especially when the elected officials wont.

  7. 16/19 of the 911 terrorists were Saudis. Saudi Arabia was and is a sponsor of terrorists. It is an Islamic kingdom yet it is not one of the countries banned by President Trump’s executive order. President Trump has pledged $110 Billion in arms to the Saudis in spite of their sponsorship of terrorism, and of human rights abuses in Yemen and of their citizens. What is your response to this double standard of President Trump’s Muslim ban?

    1. The billboard’s point was/is not the country of origin of the terrorists. Rather, the critical point is the ONE COMMON DENOMINATOR in the 9-11 attacks–Islam ideology/theology.

      The six countries on the proposed travel ban CURRENTLY are those countries deemed most dangerous NOW by our security apparatus, not 16 years ago. Do we have problems with Saudi Arabia? Yes, we do. Our opinion is that they should be on the travel restriction list, as well as other Muslim majority countries.

      But, again, the country or origin of a terrorist is not the issue. The issue that must be addressed is the fact that those who’ve committed acts of terrorism by blowing themselves up, hijacking an airplane, driving a truck into a crowd of people, etc., have ALL been adherents to Islamic ideology, regardless of where they are from.

      This is NOT about hatred toward any individual. This is about an ideology that is ensconced within Islam and has been for the entire 1400 years of Islam’s history. Until our nation’s leaders (Christian and non-Christian) and ESPECIALLY the media admit this reality, we will NEVER solve the terrorism dilemma.

      Finally, who would have ever believed on 9-11-01, that 16 years later, a billboard stating the simple truth of that fateful day would be deemed “controversial” and “hateful?” Only when “speaking truth becomes hate speech” can that ever be so!

      NCPN

      1. The person who want that particular travel ban is CURRENTLY sword dancing with the leaders of the country that provided the manpower for that attack. The CURRENT Muslim ban is not the way to prevent terrorists from coming here.

        If your point is say Muslims are bad and need to be stopped, then why didn’t your sign say that? The CURRENT executive order was only for 90 days.

        Shouldn’t your sign read more like this post? “The Muslim ban should be all Muslims” and “Islam will never be OK because jesus.”

        Also, one last tiny point. To call the hijackers “immigrants” is a lie. An immigrant is a person who moves to a new country in order to make a new life for themselves and their family. Those guys were just terrorists.

  8. God bless you for speaking the truth and standing up against political correctness. As a Pastor I speak about this and post it on facebook to warn people that though we love our enemies it doesn’t mean turning a blind eye and being silent about what they are trying to do to us and this country we love. Keep up the great work if I can be of any help let me know what I can do. In His Grace, Pastor Ray Rivenbark

  9. It’s so sad and disturbing. Once you have had them threaten your own life and that of your spouse…then here on your own soil 😔 as a Veteran and Army wife it’s so sad and upsetting to see American react this way. They don’t care about us-they literally hate the ground we walk on…literally. You can see it in their eyes. Wake up, America-PLEASE! That sign is factual and needs to be there. Sometimes the truth hurts and is upsetting-welcome to adulthood, people. People need to read the quran just once-I have, its scary. The things they believe and are brainwashed to do. And once you take out the “head”-there’s another one ready to take its place. It’s sad when a 36 yr old sees this 🤦🏻‍♀️😰😔 and elders do not…but I’ve been face to face with them.

  10. Thank you for speaking the truth. Only fools can call that “Hate Speech” and either way thank you for expressing your first amendment right.

  11. As pastors, I expect you to think critically and lead your flock in truth. There is only one truth, unlike what some of your supporters proclaim, the truth is the word of God, not “we stand with Trump because 19 Muslims killed Americans” or any other claims on Islam. Christ’s words are to pray for your enemies and turn the other cheek. In this way, we follow Christ’s commands and glorify God. Your billboard could’ve been used to read scripture which is truth, instead of continuing to promote fear, division and delusions. Do you believe God is great and sovereign? He is in control. We do not serve a small God. We do not need to hide behind Trump or anyone else.

    1. There are other billboards East and West on I-40 in the Catawba County area that are “used to read scripture which is truth.” They are very large and prominent. There is God’s truth in the Bible that does “step on peoples’ toes.” If the message of the NCPN steps on toes, then it has accomplished a portion of it’s goals. By the way, no church money was used to pay for this billboard. This message was sponsored by a collaborative group of Clergy and laymen.

  12. Thank you NC Pastors for bringing this heinous act to the forefront of awareness. It is amazing to me thinking that we have all fallen into complacency again. And to those of you who have an issue with the President making an arms deal with Saudi Arabia, just remember…one bad apple (or 16) does not spoil the pie. It is, sometimes better to keep an assumed enemy close at heart then alienate them.

  13. I support you 100%. We need more of these reminders throughout the USA so everyone will never forget. Facts are not hate speech. They are just facts, period.

    1. You speak of facts. You seems to imply that the Trump travel ban would have helped in this situation. Is that correct?

  14. The 9/11 hijacker terrorists were in the United States legally and none of them were from countries on the Trump ban list. Trump’s travel ban would not have prevented 9/11. I’m all for keeping terrorists out of the US, but it has to be done properly, and the way that Trump has done it so far will not succeed.

  15. Stay strong to your convictions of truth about islam. If needed, start a gofundme to keep up the billboard. I would donate from Florida.

  16. Thank you very much for putting up that billboard! I 100% support that move. I wish there were more brave people like you. Please keep on fighting and maybe more people will follow your lead. Thank you so much! God bless you.

  17. Thank you!
    As the wife of a retired Port Authority Police Sergent that lost his whole unit at WTC on 9/11.
    If was heartwarming to see the billboard on 40, you have not forgotten.
    We are now in North Carolina after he was involved in both bombings,93&01.
    He is deeply ,permanently affected as was the rest of our family and many families.
    There is no reason to let everyone into this country without properly vetting them.
    This war is not over and radical Islamic terrorists are trying to kill us. Thank also to our military.
    We support your decision not to be pushed into removing this billboard. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  18. Thank you for your billboard. Its good to see! In a country having such problems with political correctness, amnesia about history, and loud voices constantly piping up to silence truth they don’t want heard, I am happy to see you standing your ground. I stand with you.

  19. Besides being unchristian the travel ban is essentially useless and serves only to inflame emotions .
    The main thing that I would point out is that on 9-11 the majority of the attackers were Saudi.
    Saudi Arabia is not only not included in Trump’s illegal travel ban, but Trump has agreed to sell his new best friends millions of dollars worth of weapons.
    Until Trump can explain that disconnect I cannot support his ban.

      1. You are absolutely correct….the billboard says nothing but the truth, and it is deemed “controversial” and “hateful”…this country has already forgotten what happened that dreadful day….God bless you for standing up to this issue, and please do not take this billboard down!

    2. Chod:

      Just to be clear, it isn’t millions of dollars of weapons. It is an arms deal valued at hundreds of billions! This to the regime that has spread is radical jihadist ideology globally…

      Paul

  20. I agree with you and love the billboard….I live in S.F. a city that has forsaken God. I pray daily for all here and now you. Thank you. We all need to repent, pray and stand up for ourselves. God did not make us weak. Wake up AMERICA!!!! God bless our churches and men of faith. Thanks to our military this Memorial Day.

    Love in Christ Martha

  21. Men of courage, DO NOT EVER FOLD. Please run the billboard for it’s FULL RUN and then continue to put up new ones as often as possible! THANK YOU!

  22. I was saddened by this billboard seen on I-40 which excites hatred and loathing within our state. Now the facts 1) the 19 highjackers were not immigrants, but had 6 month tourist visas, there is quite a difference. Immigrants move to stay, these guys had no intension of leaving anything behind. 2) they were all from Saudi Arabia and not from the 6 countries the Travel Ban affects. Why not ban Saudi Arabia, would you if they had given you $100M to build in the USA? Try to be factual, yea men of the cloth. This is the reason that Christianity has faltered, the lies that even Jesus could not abide with.

    1. The only component of the legal definition of an “immigrant” that was not part of the 19 terrorists on 9-11 was their desire for permanent residence–that they did not migrate here to stay. But, THEY were the ONLY ones who ultimately knew what their intent was. The ones who lived around the 19, prior to their horrific terrorist actions, did not know their intent. Certainly the 2977 victims of their actions did not know. And, there is substantial proof that federal authorities lost contact with them, not knowing their intent, as several of the 19 had overstayed their visas and were illegal at the time of their death. Now, we all know that their intent was to NEVER seek permanent immigrant status, as they would die carrying out their heinous plot.

      So, for all practical purposes, they were viewed as immigrants by neighbors, victims, and government. Hence, our use of the word “immigrant.” One final point. The brevity of their stay underscores EVEN MORE the horrible nature of their actions, thus making migration to America (for the short term or long term), from those nation’s deemed most dangerous, all the more critical

  23. This is just sad. As a pastor, you are the kind of people that make it hard to preach the gospel because your political activism gets in the way of what your message should really be. Someday America will mean nothing and will be nothing but a footnote to history. And sadly you will have to give an account for why you allowed mission drift to get in the way of your calling to the gospel.

    1. Jon,

      Because of a very hectic schedule, I don’t normally respond to the comments posted on our website. However, I felt deeply impressed to do so to your comments.

      As a preacher of the gospel for over 33 years and a full-time evangelist, I understand my responsibility with respect to the gospel. That said, there is more than just the gospel that I must address. Paul implored Timothy to declare the “whole counsel of God.” Throughout history, a multiplicity of Christian leaders have deemed that to include addressing the inequities, even atrocities perpetrated by evil ideologies or movements. The “Black Robed Regiment” during the American Revolution is an example. Additionally, John Newton (Author of Amazing Grace) worked tirelessly to abolish slavery in England. Myriad are the examples of pastors who shouldered the same cause in America in the 1860’s.

      We believe that our resistance to the pure evil that is Islamic ideology is a part of our calling, as it has enslaved, murdered, and maimed countless thousands–over 30,989 horrific deaths worldwide since the 9-11-01.

      America’s introduction to Islam did not begin in 2001. It commenced at the founding of our nation with the Barbary Wars. Ignorance of history has caused most of America to believe that the Islamic dilemma is a new one, when it is not.

      My friend, I will answer to God for what I have not done to raise a voice against the evils of this violent ideology. To brand us as having lost our way with respect to our calling is not only inaccurate, it’s contrary to much of historical Christianity.

      Dietrich Bonhoeffer perhaps said it best. “Not to speak, is to speak. Not to act, is to act.”

      Your friend,

      Dave Kistler

      1. “Because of a very hectic schedule, I don’t normally respond to the comments posted on our website.” – Now here is my premeditated response I’ve been working on…

        “To brand us as having lost our way with respect to our calling is not only inaccurate, it’s contrary to much of historical Christianity.” – most of “historic” Christianity is just as bad is the Islam you worry about. This is especially hypocritical when you bring the Barbary Wars into it.

      2. Dave,

        You cite 30,000+ deaths since 9/11. Did you see my post below? Do you know how many civilians in Iraq U.S. led forces have killed? IraqBodyCount.org keeps track. If you are to count deaths by Muslims since 9/11, you ought to count how many innocent people have been slaughtered by Christians. It is more than 30,000… but not just double, not just triple but more than FIVE times as many civilians 165,000 have been killed post 9/11 by Christians. Although the methods are bombs dropped from airplanes, and not suicide vests… killing civilians is killing civilians. These are people’s brothers and sisters, people’s finances, girlfriends and boyfriends, these are people’s children, people’s parents. These are our neighbors in a Christ-sense.

        To imagine that 3,000 or 30,000 lives of “our people” are worth more that 165,000 of “their people” is to worship the idol of nationalism and national sovereignty. Neither of those are worthy of worship.

  24. Pastors, you are missing something. I’m sure your billboard is because you love America and want America to be safe. However, there are some important facts that you have missed. When the 9-11 planes were hijacked, 15 of the 19 hijackers came from Saudi Arabia. The rest were from the United Arab Emirates, Lebanon and Egypt. The Trump travel bans have been for Libya, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, and Yemen. So, Trump’s ban would not have kept out any of the 9-11 hijackers. You billboard implies that the Trump travel bans would have kept us safe from 9-11. That is a mistake, because the hijackers were not from Libya, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Somalia or Yemen. I look to pastors to be guides for love, charity, tolerance, togetherness and peace. I look to pastors who take the time to look up the facts before making hateful statements about millions of other people. I find your billboard to be a disgrace to all of those involved. It is not Christian. It is an intolerant comment that shows you are not Christian, or just don’t understand the loving tolerance he preached.

    1. The billboard’s point was/is not the country of origin of the terrorists. Rather, the critical point is the ONE COMMON DENOMINATOR in the 9-11 attacks–Islam ideology/theology.

      1. “The issue that must be addressed is the fact that those who’ve committed acts of terrorism by blowing themselves up, hijacking an airplane, driving a truck into a crowd of people, etc., have ALL been adherents to Islamic ideology, regardless of where they are from.”

        This statement cherry-picks three methods of violence and uses bad inductive logic and shows a broader ignorance of world history. There are 1.8 Billion Muslims in our world, or as I call them, our neighbors. There are 7 Billion people in our world. To promote a billboard indicating that it is this PARTICULAR shared identity is the cause for violence is just silly. After all, in almost all of these cases the perpetrators of this violence are men. Where’s the billboard calling for a ban on men? Seem silly? Exactly.

        U.S. led forces have killed more that 175,000 civilians in Iraq and around 26,000 in Afghanistan. The vast majority of service members doing this killing are Christians. So there is a MUCH stronger correlation with Christians killing civilians than Muslims from a numbers standpoint. You may be upset about 3,000 deaths, and I am too. But could you IMAGINE if another country bombed us so much that 175,000 of our non-military citizens died? Children, men, women… going to buy groceries, on their way to school, sitting at home, going to worship. To put that in perspective, that is about 5% of that Iraq’s population. If 5% of the U.S.’s population died from foreign bombs, that would be 16 MILLION people!!! 175,000 innocent souls in a nation that has never attacked the U.S., not wearing military uniforms… just sitting at home or at work, like you might be now, and being violently obliterated by people who “Have one thing in common… they have ALL been adherents to Christian ideology”.

        If you claim Christ – I want you to re-read the paragraph right above this a few times, meditate on it and pray. Pray for the 175,000 souls, and for forgiveness that your money (and mine) paid for the weapons. But more importantly, reflect on the degree to which this billboard will make people want to be even more violent.

        As a faith, we as Christians have much repenting to do for our violent history. To sweep under the rug the papal bulls that stripped non-Europeans of their humanity causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people across the world at the hands of Christians, to focus on the roughly 3,000 who died on 9/11 demonstrates ignorance. Additionally, even Hitler claimed to

        I fear that this billboard will do nothing to share the love of Christ and follow the commandments he gave his followers… nothing. Perhaps the funds used to create that billboard could have been used to show tangible love to our hungry neighbors, our refugee and immigrant neighbors, our homeless neighbors.

        I fear that my post will not be met with true listening, because I sense that the idolatry of nationalism and national security is far too deeply embedded in any organization that would spend money this way – I hope I am wrong.

        1. I query the 175,000 non-military number that have been killed by the US in the war on terrorism.

          A. Where do you get that number?
          B. Does this include combatants actively fighting us, or are you is this just citizens who have not taken up arms?
          C. Is this just the US alone or does this include the multi-nations who are also fighting the war on terrorism?

          Respectfuly,
          Tom

          1. Tom,

            Several sources are counting this – the U.S. State Dept does a count, http://www.iraqbodycount.org does one, Amnesty International does one. It is a truly sad state of affairs. From many of our neighbors’ perspectives, there is likely a MUCH more violent wave of Radical Christian Terrorism spreading all over the world… and “pastors” putting up a billboard like this reinforces that belief.

            The billboard is an idol that represents the idols of nationalism and national security, and does nothing to heed the greatest commandment Christ gave to all of His followers. This is a sad moment of apostasy.

  25. Thank you so much for the billboard on I-40. I believe God is using The NC Pastors Network to stir things up for our good and His glory. The billboard shows once again the good and evil that is very present in this world and how even Christians are not willing to stand up against evil or even speak out against it. Whether it is Islam in our day or the Canaanites of old, who lived in the promised land before God told His people to go in and wipe them all out because of the evil of their deeds, the fight for good and evil will continue till Jesus comes. God is The Judge and He will judge all things righteously and justly and He expects those of us as His children to do the same. He stands against ALL evil and sin, and so we too must do the same. One day soon, The Lord Jesus Christ is coming back to this world, that belongs to Him, and He is going to bring the greatest judgement this world has ever seen, upon ALL evil men and religions that opposes and exalts itself above The King of Kings……Whose side are you on?…..Get ready !

  26. Dear Brother Dave,

    Great job in defending the billboard! We are praying for you as take this bold stand for the truth and for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    1. Rick Browning,

      I’ve seen the billboard, can you explain to me using Christ’s teachings how this billboard represents the Gospel of Jesus Christ? It reads to me like a purely secular statement made in support of an earthly government’s policy. I’d really love to understand how these secular acts reflect the Gospel of Christ.

  27. The NC Pastor’s Network has posted a billboard for all to read in Hickory on I-40. I have seen the billboard and the TV short on WSOCTV channel 9. The NC Pastors make a statement. I can’t refute the billboard factually. A TV news story interviewed a number of people who claim the billboard is hateful. Is it hateful? Is it true? http://www.wsoctv.com/news/local/billboard-causes-controversy-over-religion/526157287
    Paul Cummins claims “…I’m perfectly willing for people who are hostile to us, to be in our country…” I wonder? Is Mr. Cummins perfectly willing to condone those hostile people in our country who murder your parents, your son or daughter, in a Jihad attack?
    Oliver Reitzell claims “I believe in the Christian way and that’s to embrace everybody. Kind of the hate message behind it. I’m not for that.” Mr. Reitzell are you for the “Christian way” of truth? The “Christian way” has a directive to speak and live the truth, no directives to embrace everybody. Matthew 10:35 Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. Proverbs 14:25 A truthful witness saves lives, but a false witness is deceitful.
    Andrew Katocs claims, “That billboard, it sounds like somebody is trying to cause some issues that don’t need to be worried about now.” Will Mr. Katocs tell us when we should worry? And which issues? Murderous Jihad attacks in Fort Hood Tx 05Nov2009, San Bernardino Ca 02Dec2012, Orlando Fl 16Jun2016, Boston Marathon Ma 15Apr2013, 9/11 NY 11Sep2011, and thousand more in European and Islamic countries?
    Shall we silence truth and feel morally superior because it might hurt someone’s feelings? Shall we lie today? Until next year? 10 years from now? Will we be better people for lying to ourselves and our neighbors? Our Jewish neighbors? Our Muslim neighbor? Our atheist neighbor? We must speak the truth. We need to discuss reality truthfully, and the problems at hand with Islam.

  28. You need more signs! These jihadists just want to be like the “prophet” mohamed. Mohamed was blood thirsty mass murderer who stole the property of those he killed.
    We should call these murders by the correct name HUMAN SACRAFICE. If you want to be favored by allah just kill a few Christians
    We are not battling Islamist extremist but rather Islamic fundamentalist 7th century style.

  29. Dear Pastors

    Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the billboard showing your support for President Trump. And thank you for being CHRISTIANS and not “NeoMarxist” Christians. I am Orthodox Jewish and we, the faithful Jews, appreciate our faithful Christian brothers and sisters. I can not thank you all enough and I want each of you, and your congregants, to know that you all are not alone in your desire to protect the Judeo-Christian nation of America, and her citizens, from the religious subjugation of an Islamic Caliphate. Thank you, and G-d Bless you all.
