Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee: 'Christian militants' might 'bring down the country'
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee: 'Christian militants' might 'bring down the country'

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee: 'Christian militants' might 'bring down the country'

In the twisted, upside-down universe of Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, a Christian who thinks abortion is wrong is morally equivalent to the Muslim jihadis who slammed airplanes into the World Trade Center on Sept 11, 2001.

CNS News reports that Lee said investigators need to analyze Christian "militants" in America because they too might try to “bring down the country.”

She made her comments at a hearing chaired by Rep. Peter King (R-NY) on Muslim radicalization in U.S. prisons earlier in the week.

Tiffany Gabbay writes at The Blaze:

During Wednesday’s second round of hearings on radical Islam in America, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) found a random incident in which an abortion clinic was bombed by an alleged “Christian militant” and compared it to radical Islamists, who, en masse, have waged jihad against an entire country.

“As we look to be informational, we should include an analysis of how Christian militants or others might bring down the country. We have to look broadly, do we not?” Lee asked Patrick Dunleavy, a former New York corrections official.


But Dunleavy wasn't buying Lee's outrageous claim.

“I don’t know that Christian militants have foreign country backing or foreign country financing,” he answered.

Lee, however, continued to equate Christians opposed to abortion with Islamic terrorists determined to destroy America.

“I don’t think that’s the issue," she said. "The issue is whether or not their intent is to undermine the laws of this nation. And I think it is clear that that is the case. So it’s not -- your distinction is not answering the question.”

Of course, evangelical Christians who oppose abortion have no desire to bring down or overthrow the country as Jackson Lee asserts.

However, a post at TopNewsReports.com notes:

But I believe Congresswoman Lee in her convoluted equation has a point. There are plenty of radical/militant Christians running around America with their air of legitimacy attached. Father Michael Pfleger and the Reverend Jeremiah Wright come to mind. So does the death dealing Rev. Al Sharpton and the extortionist Rev. Jesse Jackson. So yes, I would agree on a total investigation of those paragons of co-called “Christian” radicalism.

When the Congresswoman begins calling witnesses against the Black Theology preaching and America hating racist Jeremiah Wright, she has the greatest family of witnesses she could possibly have! President Barack Hussein Obama, his wife and children spent a solid 20 years listening to Wright’s racist pulpit rants “damning” America in an effort to (in Lee’s words) “bring down the country.” After testimony from the Obamas, Rep. Jackson-Lee wouldn’t need another word to make her solid point against “Christian Militants”.

But what can one expect from a member of congress who literally thinks of herself as a "queen?"

Yes, I am a Christian, a Follower of the RISEN Jesus Christ.
I can't help it. God revealed This TRUTH to my heart.

Yes I have a Bible. It says that I have been 'Designed'
and 'Created' by a majestic perfect intelligent being.
Who, grants me certain inalienable 'RIGHTS', like:
LIFE, LIBERTY, and the PURSUIT of HAPPINESS.

I have a nice life in the Center of America.
I Thank God daily that I was born here.

But I am scared. I see my government telling me that
any 'rights' I might 'think' I possess is actually
from them - The Government.

I believe they are wrong.

I believe we are indeed a Christian Nation. But
we have lost sight of it, since 1962 when the government
banned the Bible from School.

What would anyone expect?

NOW, I hear my government telling me that I might be
a Christian Militant.

I am not, I assure you, a Militant.

I do, however, wish to convey the Message of God's Grace
and Mercy in the Salvation from Sin and Even DEATH that
He offers as a FREE GIFT to Anyone who will receive it.

Now, we have a Muslim, born in Africa, as our leader.
He is illegal. But no one in my government desires to
do anything about it. And as a Muslim, he proclaims
we are no longer a Christian Nation.
What ever happened to THE TRUTH?

And the biggest problem of all is that we are now
so poorly educated, we don't even KNOW if there is
an absolute Truth that we can know.

I ask the atheist, do you believe in absolutes?

The often reply is, No I do not.

I ask, 'Are you certain?'

The reply is always, "Absolutely!"

We're twisted. We are wrong. We need Help.

So what's it going to take to bring us to
ask HIM for the Help we so desperately need?

Yeppers, friends, some have their head screwed on backwards.

God Bless the USA. Amen
I love gravity, it always keeps my feet planted when I fly!

On another note, I resemble that remark thanks helicopterYou cannot legalize morality. It's internal not external. You either have it or you don't.

Isn't this delightful?

Just when I get to feeling cocky and full of it about wonderful Texas, I get reminded of Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee.

What a downer.
