Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Jim Ammerman’s Lunacy

You probably don’t know who Jim Ammerman is. You should. He is the founder of an organization called the Chaplaincy of Full Gospel Churches (CFGC), which provides the official endorsements for 270 chaplains and chaplain candidates in the U.S. military (including the disgraced Gordon Klingenschmitt, who retains his endorsement from the group despite having been discharged from the military). Ammerman was himself an Army Colonel.

Kathryn Joyce has an article in Newsweek that contained a good deal of information about Ammerman. Chris Rodda also had an article about him at the Huffington Post that revealed just how much of an utter lunatic the man is. For example, the September 2006 CFGC newsletter claims that Muslims cannot be good Americans and should all be considered suspect:

“Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.” and “Because when we declare ‘one nation under God,’ the Christian’s God is loving and kind, while Allah is never referred to as heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the Quran’s 99 excellent names.”…

“Therefore after much study and deliberation, perhaps we should be very suspicious of all muslims in this country. They obviously cannot be both ‘good’ Muslims and good Americans.”

You should also know about Maj. James Linzey, who is currently a chaplain with an endorsement from CFGC. Linzey is another conspiracy nut, as Rodda describes:

The following was the promo for one of Maj. Linzey’s several appearances on a radio show called “The Edge.”

“Major James F. Linzey; U.S. Army Officer, Chaplain, and director of Operation Freedom, exposes how the satanic forces in the U.S. Government allow illegal immigration, giving access to terrorists to invade America’s heartland. Find out the myths and lies, and how illegal immigration effects the politics, domestic issues, national security, and terrorist ring in the United States, and you can do about it. Get your questions in early. It’s going to be hot!

“He will expose unknown satanic forces and how they are using illegal immigration to:

* Affect American politics
* Sway Domestic issues
* Destroy National Security
* Create a Terrorist Ring which could start an internal revolution.”

A good part of this two hour interview was about another of Maj. Linzey’s pet conspiracy theories — a communist takeover of the U.S. in which the U.S. government is complicit. According to Linzey, the Chinese are going to to take over the United States with the help of Mexico. He claims that Chinese soldiers are already in Mexico training the Mexicans for an invasion into the United States to reclaim the Southwest for Mexico. In typical fashion, Linzey, like his mentor Jim Ammerman and other Prophecy Club members, claims to have inside information from government officials that there is a government conspiracy and/or cover-up going on.

Linzey also talks incessantly about the coming U.N. invasion of America:

“I suggest that Americans get their arms to be ready to defend themselves and their own homes when they come knocking on your door, demanding your food, demanding your money, and raping your wives. The U.N. troops will be here to start patrolling the cities, the streets, the highways, and we will be under, basically, European rule.”

Both Ammerman and Linzey are full-on believers in the whole Jewish conspiracy to control the world through the Illuminati thing. In fact, here is video of Ammerman giving a talk to the Prophecy Club where he lays out the whole ridiculous conspiracy – the Bildeburgers, the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers, the Illuminati, etc – and claims that Hillary Clinton is “higher up” in the Illuminati than Bill Clinton, thus he has to take orders from him. Oh, he also says at the end that Clinton should have been publicly executed:

These people are completely nuts. And they’re training chaplains — officers — in the U.S. military. Yes, that should scare the hell out of you.
