Wow, here is that return to civility that all the woke evangelical leaders like Beth Moore, Russell Moore, Tim Keller, David French, etc. promised me when they told me not to vote for that horrible Donald Trump. We had to put a stop to his mean tweets somehow, they said, and never you mind about the violence and damage caused by Black Lives Matter and Antifa Democrats.
Here’s the latest on the secular left fascists from The Post Millennial:
A large group of Antifa carrying shields and melee weapons attacked a group of Evangelical Christians congregating for a prayer and worship event at the waterfront in downtown Portland, Ore. Video recorded at the scene showed children and families running away as black-clad Antifa militants tore apart the sound equipment and assaulted attendees with pepper spray and projectiles.
[…]Shocking video recorded at the violent event show dozens of armed Antifa members in black bloc and riot gear moving in to physically confront attendees of the event. One of the Antifa members sprayed a congregant with an unidentified, gas-like substance that is suspected to be pepper spray. The congregation took several steps back to avoid injury. “Where is your god now?” an Antifa member can be heard saying in the video.
After pulling apart the sound system, the Antifa toss the equipment into the Willamette River. A woman can be seen panicking as she and her fellow parishioners backed away to avoid further altercation. “They threw a flash bomb into a group of kids,” said a female attendee who spoke to a videographer at the scene while the injured were being treated. An Antifa account on Twitter later posted that they stole the Christian attendees’ food and water.
Yes, yes. These are all the good things that Evangelicals for Biden wanted us to have. Get rid of all those “Christian nationalist” policies (i.e. – border security, law enforcement and low taxes), and bring back the good, wholesome Marxist morality of Black Lives Matter and Antifa.
When are we going to get some real leadership from “Christian leaders” about the issues that Christians actually care about? I oppose atheism. Let’s see some evidential apologetics. I oppose feminism. Let’s see some opposition to no-fault divorce, abortion and same-sex marriage. I oppose socialism. Let’s see some support for lower taxes, job creation, school choice and limited government.
I just don’t think that the “evangelical” left (Russell Moore, David French, Beth Moore, Tim Keller, etc.) understand what their allies on the secular left are capable of. But they are still responsible for enabling it when they support the secular left at election time.

The police were also called and did not respond according to another article.
Christians will have to defend themselves now if they are to have any defense at all against the left fanatics.
God does not forbid christians to defend themselves, even with lethal force. Not doing so is the choice of weak christian men who believe scripture that is either not there or warped from its original meaning. Every man should be armed with something at all times. A knife, a cane, a firearm, specifically for this reason: You simply never know when danger will arise and you need to defend your family. I guarantee a few well placed bullets would have sent the entire mob into retreat once they realized they were not descending on sheep for the slaughter, but wolves intent on defending the pack. Shame on the police and shame on these men. I hear them saying, “I’ve got kids, c’mon”, like that is a defense! Like people intent on hurting you CARE that you have kids with you. THEY CAN ALREADY SEE THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN AND THEY DON’T CARE! Stand up! Stop being wimps and simps! You want to obey God then DEFEND THE FAMILY YOU HAVE BUILT! Stop sacrificing them on the altar of political correctness and, the bane of christianity, the altar of kindness. Yes we must be kind, but not while your wife, children and fellow christians are being attacked. Our founding fathers were christians and they defended themselves and the nation they had built while giving glory to God, and there is no doubt that God’s mighty hand guided them to victory, so I don’t want to hear anyone tell me about how “christians shouldn’t be violent”. For the sake of violence, no! But for defense of your home and family, you damn well better believe it.
Western christianity will fall, and this is part and parcel as to why.

You are correct. As Christians, we are not to be the aggressors, but we are not only entitled to defend ourselves, but it is our responsibility to defend our families. It’s also time the antifa fascist stormtroopers were labelled a domestic terrorist group and deal with accordingly.

It may be time for this in Portland:
If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet.
Brought to you by the Left — including the “Christian” Left — because they are tolerant and love is love or something.
Wouldn’t have happened in Texas. There would have been a lot of dead ANTIFA had they tried this in Texas, and the shooters would have received medals from the sheriff’s department, which would have been on the scene rapidly.
BTW, don’t forget the cowardly calvinist John Piper in your list of false piety churchians. Must be “tough” for these “church leaders” with 6 figure incomes and book deals, speaking gigs, etc to shrink from the battle and tickle more ears.
I’m telling you, WK, I’ve got as low a view of Marxist “Christian” collaborators as I do of people who remain silent about abortion. What part of “loving our neighbors as ourselves” do these submitters to Marxist madness not get?!? Have they never read a history book?!? Too busy reading science fiction, LOL?

Well, not, I doubt they can read. Yet, none seem to be poor, but from upper class and wealthy families, just as most hippies were. Yes, I’m sure they get into a lot of science fiction, mostly from CDC and fauci.

They tried here, but all they did was raid jewelry stores in a mall in Scottsdale. They got bolder, attacking a small pentecostal church in Tucson, but a bunch of little old ladies ran them off. Little old ladies are deadly. hasta!
To paraphrase someone, Nazi is as Nazi does. Hitler despised anything Jewish, and christianity was a much hated target.
