It’s not entirely clear if he actually traveled to Iran for this conference or if he participated with a stateside panel discussion group in either DC or New York. When interviewed by a reporter he was quoted as saying,
“The reason that Occupy Wall Street is continuing to go on is because people are protesting the policies of the American government.” He added, “Spontaneous activism which is organized by social media will always have a huge opportunity to make large economic and societal changes. Just like it did in Egypt with Tahrir Square, so it will, in various permutations or forms, continue to give the public that doesn’t necessarily have economic and social standing an opportunity to make a difference, because in the land of the Internet, there are no kings or queens.”
Let this all soak in a second.
Participating with a conference about Occupy Wall Street that was in Tehran, Iran.
Let’s see. Iran. You know, the homicidal government that whips women for showing their arms in public and executes them for being raped; Oh, and they like killing Christians.
And Occupy Wall Street. The anti-Semitic, Neo-Marxists whose core army is made up of potheads, bums, and hippies who smell of urine.
Along with Hank, there were a large assortment of crazy people who believe America is the 1% and is to be blamed for pretty much all the ills in the world because – wait for it –
Americans support Zionism. Spell it out with me. IT’S THE J-E-W-S. Da Jooooos.
I stand with my mouth open in stunned disbelief. Has Hank’s anti-Dispensationalism brought him to becoming a leftist crackpot? Seriously. What do all of the other so-called Evangelical apologists who contribute to his journal and website, like Holly Ordway, Jay Richards, Mary Jo Sharp, along with a host of others think about Hank’s extra-curricular activities as a pro-Marxist, anti-Semitic useful idiot for the government of Iran? Does it matter to them? Or is it just Hank being Hank? It’s one of those matters we can debate vigorously like Hank’s says.
It’s just grievous to see what was once an outstanding Christian ministry having it’s reputation ruined and driven off the tracks by such narcissistic incompetence.
