“Pentecostal Joel Demos Takes on Muslim Ellison”

That’s the title of a recent article in the Apostolic News (link) written by the parents of Minnesota Fifth District’s Joel Demos, introducing their son to the Apostolic community.

You go read the article. But for those of you who are uncomfortable visiting such a site, imma give you a taste:

…Less than three months ago, our own son Joel was reading an article by Karl Rove, appealing for young people to enter the political arena. Joel… felt a spiritual urging to consider the possibilities in his own area. …

His opponent is a four-year incumbent, Keith Ellison – the first Moslem elected to US Congress. … Joel’s battle has been uphill in every way possible, but he believes that God was in this decision and miraculous doors have opened thus far. …

We ask for your prayers that God will use Joel to advance HIS Kingdom and help bring America back to her knees! Joel has passed phase one of this venture … Now, it is crucial that he pass through the second phase successfully, raising the large amount of money … Pray that the finance needed for this venture will miraculously come in from unexpected and solicited sources. Pray that the Word will be fulfilled…

For the Kingdom and for America,
Alan and Valerie Demos

The letter also refers to Matthew 10:18-20. You should probably know what that says because this an election and all:

And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

Okay…just so you know what or whom you’d be voting for.

    Although Demos is not an exciting candidate and I know good and assimilated Muslims, I get the Islamic concern, that;

    Hamas are no freedom fighters. They are a spinoff of the Muslim Brotherhood, Ellison takes Muslim Brotherhood money and Hamas is just like al Shabab of Somalia which is smuggling terrorists into the US through Texas, and just got those two guys arrested in New York. And that;

    Since we have learned that radical progressives are tied into Islamic radicals, Intel experts have suggested that we can expect the 60′s Bill Ayers version Marxist violence to evolve in to a Marxist lead/False-Flag Op where Islamists are conducting violence with the assistance of the hard left.

    So Ellison seems a good example of the point at which those two entities meet – so the concern is rational.

    My suggestion however would be to simply defeat Ellison in his upcoming August primary. Conservative Barb Davis White seems to be gaining real interest against Ellison.

    Yeah, Ellison is so pro-Hamas. http://minnesota.publicradio.org/display/web/2010/06/02/rep-ellison-israeli-blockade-helping-hamas/

    DanO, while it’s very nice to see you continuing to patrol(l) Minnesota political news to shill for Davis White, it would be lovely if you could be a bit more accurate. On the other hand, I guess your behavior is fitting when you’re pushing a Tea Party candidate who’s running as a Democrat in the primary.

    I would have thought politics should be a secular pass-time and a persons religion shouldn’t really be questioned. Except that belonging to any religion automatically calls into question your ability to make rational decisions.

    As for quoting scripture: John 18:36 – Where, Jesus defending himself against the accusation he’s trying to set up a kingdom in opposition to Roman rule says, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my followers would fight to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish leaders.”

    Leaving the question why is any true beleiver worried about politics at all; remember youre kingdom is not of this world, right? Then again, America has been referred to as the new world in the past… I guess.

    Nice to be appreciated, and Barb is in no way covert about her support for the Tea Party movement, in-fact, she was also supported in 08 by Dr. Ron Paul’s Liberty Group.

    It is in light of this fact that she has been approached by organized groups of Democrats to remove Ellison, the dangers that the progressives have put the country in (primarily financial) are such that pretty much everybody wants Ellison out!

    Remember T.E.A. is for Taxed Enough Already! The TeaParty movement is a call for fiscal discipline and to stop spending our children’s and grandchildren’s futures.

    Please tell me what part of that you disagree with [Edited to remove inappropriate sexual advances toward the editor.]

    The Christians of various flavors who are running for various offices across the country on religious grounds (rather than a political platform) don’t ever seem to understand that the theocracy they’re trying to achieve is not in line with the theocracy other Christians of other flavors are trying to achieve.

    I find it rather sad that any of these type of people get elected at all, even if it’s for the town’s animal control officer. Hoping to bring about the “end times” and preparing for “the rapture” should not be considered qualities to look for in a candidate for any office.

    Since Joel happens to be Pentecostal, though, it might be interesting to hear him give a speech, then lapse into “speaking in tongues”. ;)

    Dan O: Are you actually making the claim that Congressman Ellison is a terrorist, and that the best thing Democrats can do is to push him aside before he blows something up?

    Kathryn says:

    DanO @ #1, man, that is some kind of creative reasoning. By that reasoning, the Hutaree militia members are mainstream Christians.

    Religion aside, Keith Ellison is an AWESOME representative, and I wish he were mine so I could vote for him.

    Oh, and I thought that was exactly the point: “religion aside”.

    Paul says:

    Whatever happened to the bright line between church and state? I don’t know DanO, but I think he needs a serious cranial flush – something in his head that seems to be distorting his logic needs to be washed away.

    Seriously, Joel Demos sounds like one dangerous guy. Fear is not a good cornerstone for a political campaign. History shows over and over that fear and anger only lead to very bad decision-making. I hope Minnesotans are smart enough to return Demos to his pulpit – and only to his pulpit, not the “bully pulpit” of Washington.
