A New Barmen Declaration for Evangelicals? by Mark Dankof

Lutheran pastor and American paleo-con Mark Dankof reviews the history of the Confessing Church in Germany and its Barmen Declaration of 1934, a statement underscoring the primacy of Holy Scripture and Jesus Christ in opposition to Adolf Hitler and the National Socialist movement of the day. The re-examination of the witness of Barth, Bonhoeffer, Niemoller, and others in opposition to the Nazis serves as a warning and primer to present-day American Evangelicals too cozy with the Bush-Cheney regime, the goals of the Project of the New American Century (PNAC) cabal, and the American Empire's quest for global deification.
