The black-robed regiment on call . . .

Clergy to the pulpit barricades!

AURORA IL – Sunday evening, the Illinois Family Institute hosted several hundred Illinoisans who gathered at Aurora Christian School to hear Pastor, Author, and Oklahoma State Representative Dan Fisher call for Illinois clergy to “wake up” and join a modern day Black Robed Regiment.


The Black Robed Regiment was the name the British placed on the American clergy during the Founding Era (a backhanded reference to the black robes they wore). The British blamed the Black Robed Regiment for American Independence, and American leaders agreed

” We’re all Catholics now,” the Episcopal priest said at a rally in the Federal center a few years back, referring to the impingements on religious liberty fostered by ObamaCare.

Trouble is, in N. Illinois the RC priests are mostly liberals politically, if not in every other way.

However, I heard an excellent sermon pre-election day 2012 at St. John Vianney, Northbrook, at the 10 a.m. Latin mass. Quite good indeed.

    I attended the event when it was given by Dan Fisher in Bensenville. As Pastor John Muhlenberg said upon laying aside his pastoral robe on January 21, 1776, encouraging his men to follow as he prepared to lead the 8th Virginia Regiment into battle: “There is a time for all things, a time to preach an a time to pray. But there is also a time to fight, and that time has now come!”

    Also remember the words of Dietrich Bonhoeffer who lost his life defending Christianity in Germany under the Hitler regime: “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. God will not hold us guitless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

    This is the time to act. Pastors, so instrumental in winning the Revolutionary War, must lead the charge today if this nation is to be saved.

    Shame on us all. Christians not paying attention to our leaders, and thus voting incorrectly, reminds me of God taking His hand of protection off of His people when they preferred ungodly Kings.

    Pastor John Kirkwood, Bensenville, IL, is Associate Director of the Christian Emergency League. He is asking for pastors to join him in the cause to become active stewards of God’s gift of self-government. It is time for Christians to respond to God’s call and fully engage the culture before we lose our religious liberties and our opportunity to freely promote and practice our faith.
