Conservative Religious Influence

Pat RobertsonThe warning, given to me 25 years ago, came at the moment Pat Robertson and other radio and televangelists began speaking about a new political religion that would direct its efforts at taking control of all institutions, including mainstream denominations and the government. Its stated goal was to use the United States to create a global, Christian empire. It was hard, at the time, to take such fantastic rhetoric seriously, especially given the buffoonish quality of those who expounded it. But Adams warned us against the blindness caused by intellectual snobbery. The Nazis, he said, were not going to return with swastikas and brown shirts. Their ideological inheritors had found a mask for fascism in the pages of the Bible. - Chris Hedges (From his article: The Christian Right and the Rise of American Fascism, 2011)

Christian Peacemaker Corps:

Harmeet SoodenCPT workers make up what we call the "Peacemaker Corps." Teams of trained Corps members enter emergency situations of conflict and areas of militarization in partnership with local peacemakers. Responding to Christ's radical call, they attempt to bring God's redemptive love to violent situations.

Teams of 2 to 12 persons join the efforts of local peacemakers facing imminent violence by:

  • Providing a nonviolent presence with individuals or communities who are threatened
  • Physically intervening to prevent violence
  • Reporting on human rights abuses
  • Planning and carrying out creative, nonviolent public responses to injustice
  • Training others in nonviolent direct action
  • Speaking and writing to media, interested groups, congregations, and organizations
  • Stipend Eligible:Full-time and Part-time Corps members commit to a three-year term of service on CPT projects.
    • Full-time is a minimum average of nine months a year on a CPT project.  This time might be split up in 3-6 month chunks depending on the particular CPT project.
    • Part-time is a minimum of 4.5 months per year in a CPT project.  This can also be split into two service periods on-project. When not serving on-project, stipend eligible CPTers live in their home communities participating in advocacy, fundraising and personal time-off.
  • Reserve Corps: The Reserve Corps members reinforce the work of every Christian Peacemaker team by providing a larger pool of trained peacemakers who commit to working with CPT (2 to 16 weeks each year) for three years.
