If we are to win this war on religious freedom and civil order, it must start in the church.
David Barton has chronicled the history of ‘The Black Robed Regiment’ in detail What is the Black Robe Regiment?
I have decided to delegate a section of this site to encourage churches and their pastors and leaders to step up to the challenges of today’s social and civil affairs.
Every good change in society has been lead by men of the cloth, boldly preaching the Word of God and applying it to the civil affairs of their time.
Very few people today are aware that it was the preachers of their time that led the country into the Revolutionary war.
Most of us understand the impact that Martian Luther King had on civil rights, but the fact that he was the pastor of a church often eludes us.
Today we are in the middle of the last revolution to secure our freedom of religious and civil rights. — A war that must be fought, not with guns or violence, but through knowledge and activism.
The Democratic Party was taken over by the Progressives because they failed to stand up to them.
Today’s Republican Party has also been infiltrated by the Progressives and if the last standing clean and pure conservative politicians don’t stand up now, we will soon become a Progressive one party system.
And those few brave men and women in Washington that are dedicated to return our country to the original intent of the constitution founded by our Forefathers deserve our support.
As they reveal themselves you can be sure that they will be slandered and attacked by the left through all mediums of the media, and Obama controlled government agencies such as the IRS, EPA, regulatory system, data mining, etc. – and even by the Progressive Republican leadership that will threaten to take their committee appoints from them if they don’t follow in lock step.
If we are to win this war it must start in the church. In Hosea 4:6 we find God admonishing the preachers for not teaching the true word and applying it to the civil affairs of the day, resulting in the fall of the nation.
The Black Robed Regiment was the name that the British placed on the courageous and patriotic American clergy during the Founding Era (a backhanded reference to the black robes they wore). Significantly, the British blamed the Black Robed Regiment for American Independence, and rightfully so, for modern historians have documented that:
“There is not a right asserted in the Declaration of Independence which had not been discussed by the New England clergy before 1763.” (Alice M. Baldwin, The New England Clergy and the American Revolution (New York: Frederick Ungar, 1958), p. 170.)
It is strange to today’s generation to think that the rights listed in the Declaration of Independence were nothing more than a listing of sermon topics that had been preached from the pulpit in the two decades leading up to the American Revolution, but such was the case.
Ministers were intimately involved in every aspect of introducing, defining, and securing America’s civil and religious liberties. A 1789 Washington, D. C., newspaper therefore proudly reported:
“Our truly patriotic clergy boldly and zealously stepped forth and bravely stood our distinguished sentinels to watch and warn us against approaching danger; they wisely saw that our religious and civil liberties were inseparably connected and therefore warmly excited and animated the people resolutely to oppose and repel every hostile invader. . . . May the virtue, zeal and patriotism of our clergy be ever particularly remembered. (Gazette of the United States (Washington, D.C.: May 9, 1789), p. 1, quoting from “Extract from “American Essays: The Importance of the Protestant Religion Politically Considered.”)
My prayer is that today’s children will someday read a similar news article about today’s church.

What Would My Church Look Like Today if it were to Reinvigorate the Black Robed Regiment?
