STOP taking Pastor Dennis Terry out of context. He said NOTHING wrong!

***UPDATED***

I’m so tired of group think.

The left has gotten themselves in an uproar over comments made by Pastor Dennis Terry at a church-campaign event for Rick Santorum, and even some on the right are accepting their false premise. First, watch the video if you haven’t seen it:

Now let me ask you what was wrong with anything Pastor Terry said? Well if you ask those on the left, they say he’s telling non-Christians and liberals to get out of America. But that’s not at all what he said. Allow me to properly phrase his so-called controversial comments the way he delivered them:

I don’t care what the liberals say. I don’t care what the naysayers say. This nation was founded as a Christian nation – the God of Abraham, the God of Issac and the God of Jacob – there’s only one God! There’s only one God and his name is Jesus!

I’m tired of people telling me that I can’t say those words. I’m tired of people telling us as Christians that we can’t voice our beliefs or we can no longer pray in public.

Listen to me, If you don’t love America, If you don’t like the way we do things I have one thing to say – GET OUT!

We don’t worship Buddha! I said we don’t worship Buddah, we don’t worship Mohammad, we don’t worship Allah, we worship God. we worship God’s son Jesus Christ.



I’m gonna make this real simple. Here’s my translation of what he said:

We’re Christians and we have a right to say it, a right to pray it, and you don’t have the right to take that away from us.

If you don’t like freedom of religion, if you don’t like freedom of speech, if you don’t like our Constitution, if you don’t like the way we do things in America, GET OUT!

This is a critical distinction. He’s not telling non-Christians and liberals to get out. He’s telling people who disagree with our nation’s founding document, our Constitution, those who want to suppress the right of Christians in the public square to practice their religion, to go somewhere else if they don’t like it. Because here the Constitution is the rule of law, and it is here to stay.

After that he just affirms what we believe as Christians, taking a stand for his right to say it in the public square.

That is the proper context and meaning of what he was saying.

UPDATE: Just wanted to add, if it weren’t clear, that the reason this is important is simply because the left is trying to use their false premise, by extension, against Rick Santorum.

UPDATE 2: Just for clarification of his last comment quoted above “We don’t worship Buddha! I said we don’t worship Buddah, we don’t worship Mohammad, we don’t worship Allah, we worship God. we worship God’s son Jesus Christ”, he’s not talking about America in that emphatic statement. He’s talking about Christians. Remember, he’s a pastor speaking in a church full of Christians.

It’s a statement of affirmation of belief in the face of hypocritical intolerance. He doesn’t like being silenced, especially in a country that was founded on the basis of Christianity, when other religions are tolerated more. Inferred here is a cultural war on Christianity and not other religions.

  1. He said nothing wrong? You are so right you are blind. I am a Buddhist and born in the United States just as were my parents and grandparents. Dennis Terri told me to get out. Well, how about NO. How about you get out.

  2. “Woe 2 u, teachers of the law &Pharisees, u hypocrites! U travel over land &sea 2win a single convert, &when he becomes 1, u make him twice as much a son of hell as u r!”
    “Woe 2 u, teachers of the law &Pharisees, u hypocrites! U r like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside r full of dead men’s bones & everything unclean”
    I AM CHRISTIAN. NEVER! HAVE I BEEN 2 A CHURCH WHERE THE PASTOR SAID THESE THINGS! I HAVE YET 2 READ THIS KIND OF MESSAGE IN THE BIBLE! AS FAR AS I KNOW JESUS & GOD WOULD NEVER! SAY THESE THINGS NOR WOULD THEY CONDONE THIS SPEECH & BEHAVIOR!

    SO THEREFORE, THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT OF GOD!

    “This is a critical distinction. He’s not telling non-Christians & liberals 2 get out. He’s telling people who disagree w/our nation’s founding document 2 go somewhere else if they don’t like it” BS ALL DAY! go where? who is disagreeing? who has said they disagree? YOU LIE!

    “Woe 2 u, teachers of the law & Pharisees, u hypocrites! U give a tenth of ur spices—mint, dill & cummin. But u have neglected the more important matters of the law—JUSTICE, MERCY, & FAITHFULNESS. U should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former”

  3. This is an extremely convoluted parsing of what Terry said; it is precisely the total “context” of his statements that leads to the conclusion he was implying precisely what you are trying to sidestep.

    From the material you quote, he emphasizes “This nation was founded as a Christian nation” (which is debatable itself in that it implies a sense of legal exclusivity which is certainly NOT what the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment represents). He continues with the statement that “if you don’t like the way we do things” [in Christian America] . . . GET OUT! [of Christian America].” It’s a noble effort to seek to relate this to the idea of religious freedom, but that is an extremely dubious conclusion given the claims of exclusive validity in the first paragraph.

    It is very clear in “how we do things” that he is referring to “we” as Americans (and stridently “Christian Americans”), so your effort to then shift “we” to just Christians in the last paragraph is strained. Overall, however, it is Terry’s emphasis on “Christian nation” that leads to the implication that ‘in America, other religions are not to be tolerated.’ (not meant as a quote). Had he said what you say, I’d applaud his sentiment, but his condemnation of other faiths as not being true to the “one God, Jesus Christ” coupled with the identification of America as a Christian nation shows that his sentiments are directly contrary to allowing some “freedom of religion” — other than his brand of Christianity.

    I submit that you can’t just rely upon the words you’ve put in bold type, read in a tenuous connection between the second and third paragraphs, and totally ignore that first paragraph and what it implies about what he assumes about America and his claim that truth lies exclusively in the “name of Jesus.”

    While I’m here, I’ll add that his understanding of Buddhism is flawed. We Buddhists do not “worship” Buddha; Buddha was merely human, not divine. He just happened to be “one who woke up” (which is what the title “a Buddha” means). In Buddhism, what we do is more important than anything we might believe — faith and confidence (“being with faith”) arises from the experience of process and action (particularly meditation), rather than relying upon a sense of a separate God. In other words, for us, questions of the existence (or not) of God are secondary to what we do; i.e., epistemology trumps ontology.

  4. But there’s a problem.

    He said “This nation was founded as a Christian nation”. That phrase is beloved of the Dominionists. Know who they are? They’re a bunch of people who claim to be Christians, but what they really want is to restore the Old Testament and impose it on America.

    Besides the fact that it’s a false statement, it is also a statement that to many means only Christians should hold power. Trouble is, Jesus never said, “Go therefore and get elected in My Name”. In fact He admonished us to not want that kind of power, to not seek that kind of power.

    It’s sad that people like that get to call themselves “pastor”.

  5. Let me first say that I am a believer in God, and I have accepted Jesus Christ as my savior.

    Anyone who claims to be a good Christian and goes off on prejudiced statements that come more out of xenophobia than they do scripture, I genuinely feel sorry for. I feel even worse for those that put stock in the things they say.

    The best thing anyone can do as an American Christian is use the freedoms that the Federal Government recognize are theirs simply by their creation to live their life as they see fit and lead by example so that people will actually come to them for advice rather than having it forced it on them. I cannot fathom that there is any American Christian that has their life so organized and in order that they feel justified in telling others that there is only one acceptable way to live their life.

    If you want to know why there is such a hot national debate over moral issues, it’s because self righteous jokes decide their message is so important, they need to force their message into Washington in an attempt to garner enough support (usually out of fear) to ram that message and its ideals down the American people’s throats. This happens on both the right and left and is the core reason why we are a nation of stolen liberty. Crafty business people use their powerful lobby to capitalize on these divisions and exploit them for profit, those in the government and those close to them become a part of the business side (and vice versa) and eventually the federal government becomes an elaborate money laundering system for a few very wealthy people. Wonder why so many Haliburton people were involved in the Bush Administration during a decade when we had enhanced adventurism in the Middle East? Wonder why so many Goldman Sachs people are involved in the Obama Administration in the age of Corporate Welfare and 0% interest loans from the Fed to banks who just loan that money back to the government at a higher interest rate?

    Because someone thought their message and their ideals were so important that they were above freedom and liberty and should be forced on the American people.

  6. Dennis Terry is insane. He was claiming the US was founded as a Christian nation.

    He then said that there is only one god, and his name is Jesus, and that he’s tired of people saying that he can’t speak about Jesus.

    Your interpretation is either a lie, or you really have no critical or analytical processing skills.

    Religious zealots are a threat to any stable nation.

  7. UPDATE 2: Just for clarification of his last comment quoted above “We don’t worship Buddha! I said we don’t worship Buddah, we don’t worship Mohammad, we don’t worship Allah, we worship God. we worship God’s son Jesus Christ”, he’s not talking about America in that emphatic statement. He’s talking about Christians. Remember, he’s a pastor speaking in a church full of Christians.

    This is why you sound like an Idiot, a church full of Christians already knows what they believe in and who they are. If big mouth said it in front of an audience full of Buddha, Mohammad or Allah (which also means GOD but not in English) than it would make complete sense. I’m starting to think the south has gone nuts! That Pastor hates everyone that doesn’t conform to his beliefs. Name one person that will take away your right to worship God? Name one left wing person that will force him or anyone not to pray? Pastor Terry, if you can’t win people over with love then you scare the living hell out of them.. Another false prophet, the bible speaks a lot about that…

  8. Greetings everyone: America was founded on Christianity; but now, she is beginning to bend and break under pressure from other nations. She’s dying a slow and painful death spiritually, physically, financially and otherwise. Take a stand for Jesus Christ who died on Calvary’s cross and who made the ultimate sacrifice for mankind because of His great love humankind. Take a good look around us America; your glory is beginning to fade and show its ugly head. God has finally stopped his ear and turned his back because of disobedience. We deserve His wrath and judgment. If we do not take heed, God would eventually allow another country to walk right in under our very noses and subdue and conquer us. We have now gone the way of Cain.

    We are slowly approaching the beginning of Jacob’s trouble, better known as the Lord Christ second advent/return. All we have to do is look around us and see the change that is taking place and completely out of our control. Look at the change in this economy, perversion is on the rise, tsunamis, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, wars and rumors of wars around the world. These are troubled times people and everyone will get their due no matter what. No one is exempt for God’s wrath. Who can hide from almighty God? He hears when a pin is dropped to the ground and he knows our very thoughts. The whole entire world is suffering from birth pangs. Remember the righteous O Lord like you remembered your servants Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Lot and Moses; along with men like Hezekiah and David, and your holy apostles and prophets.

    The Bible declares that these things will take place the closer it gets to Jesus’ return.

    Look do not get me wrong, I am not referring to unbelievers or atheists because they have always been among us from the very beginning. I am referring to outsiders and new religions that are coming into American and “demanding” we change to be just like them.

    There is a feud that is still brewing between the two families: Jacob the promised legitimate son of Abraham by Sarah, and Ishmael by Sarah’s servant Hagar. We must stand up for Jesus Christ and not bend to outside pressure of other nations who vowed to bring America to her knees. Be careful what your wish for, you might just get it.

      1. Disqus generic email templateYou said that you refused to read past my first false statement, which means that you are not doing much reading up on the history of America. Why don’t you take a trip to your local library and do some research yourself? I attended seminary school for many years and have read the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation. I love prophecy. Believe me, all that I have said is a very real threat to America. Why don’t you try reading God’s holy word, the Bible? Maybe you might learn a thing or two about your very existence in the plan of God? 2 Timothy 3:16 states that all Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,

        I am not kidding Cole, I fear God more than any man in this world. When someone dies the spirit and soul immediately departs and goes either to heaven or to hell. God created them both. Everyone thinks they are going to heaven, not so. Every day I see people looking up in the heavens like they are expecting their departed loved ones to hear and see them down here on earth and help them. When you are put in the grave all of you including the clothes you were buried in rot; just open the grave a few years later and all you will discover is the skeleton. Dust you are made and dust you shall return until the return of Jesus Christ in glory to set up his kingdom. If you are not spiritual how can I expect you to understand spiritual things?

        Be good to yourself and be blessed!

        “There is a feud that is still brewing between the two families” talking about the Corleones & the Tattaglias.

        I agree that there is a feud still brewing between the two families but I do not think we are talking about the same thing. The only feud that I aware of is between Isaac (the Jew) the ligitimate son of Abraham and Sarah and Ishmael (the Muslim) the illegitimate son of Abraham by Sarah’s maid Hagar
        “America was founded on Christianity” i didnt know SLAUGHTERING INDIANS IS PART OF CHRISTIANITY! –I agree. However, that is the wicked works of evil men here on earth who do not know almighty God.
        “I am referring to outsiders and new religions that are coming into American and “demanding” we change to be just like them” well just tell santorum & pastor dennis terry to GET OUT!!! When I say that this country was founded on Christianity (the founding fathers) I meant the founding father put their trust in Jesus Christ, the third person in the Trinity. If you do not believe me then I suggest you do some research:
        1. GEORGE WASHINGTON (1732-1799), who was elected in 1789 . I would say he was an athiest or maybe not. He said, “He who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and it time depraves all its good dispositions.” (1785). 2. John Quincy Adams (1735-1826). He said that [America’s] glory is not dominion, but liberty. Her march is in the march of the mind. She has a spear and a shield: but the motto upon her shield is, FREEDOM, INDEPENDENCE, PEACE. This has been her Declaration: this has been, as far as her necessary intercourse with the rest of mankind would permit, her practice.”
        3. Thomas Jefferson (March 4, 1801-March 3, 1809) He was actually a very spiritual person who believed in God and the moral teachings of Jesus Christ, even compiling and translating his own version of Jesus’ teachings. 4. James Madison (March 16, 1751-June 28, 1836). He said,”It is the duty of every man to render to the Creator such homage….Before any man can be considered as a member of Civil Society, he must be considered as a subject of the Governor of the Universe.” “We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all of our political institutions upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.”
        5. James Monroe (April 28, 1758-July 4, 1831). He died of heart failure and tuberculosis on July 4, 1831.Monroe was raised in a family that belonged to the Church of England when it was the state church in Virginia before the Revolution. He was Jewish.

        “God has finally stopped his ear and turned his back” dont blame him! i would to listening to you fools! i’m surprised he lasted this long!

        God is a merciful and faithful High Priest and still working on behalf of his contrary children on planet earth. We are no better than the people of God (the Israelites) who wondered through the wilderness 40 years for disobedience.

        God will continue to love us unconditionally, just like our earthly fathers, but there is a limit to what he will tolerate from his wayward and contrary children.

  9. Don’t try to make Rev. Terry’s sermon into something to behold. It showed a lack of understanding of the scriptures and why this country was founded. It is troublesome to hear a minister speak against other religions. He does not know this country and the awesome diversity it represents. Ah, but I understand that Christians can’t get into heaven unless they suffer, and suffer he must.

    1. Alwaya remember those who serve almighty God may or may not all get into heaven. Most people believe they will go to heaven when they die, but that is so untrue. If it were so then who goes to hell? God has total control of them both. Matthew 7:21 declares, That not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. For those who look up toward the heaven in the wake a loved one’s death and ask their loved one to help them I feel saddened because they could neither hear, feel or see any one of us here on earth. When a person is put in the grave their eyes including their entire bodies are rotten back to dust so they have no eyes to see any of us here on earth.

    2. What parts does he not understand in the Scriptures or why this country was founded?

      Mayflower Compact reads:

      “In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, defender of the Faith, etc.:

      Having undertaken, for the Glory of God, and advancements of the Christian faith, and the honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the Northern parts of Virginia; do by these presents, solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God, and one another; covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politic; for our better ordering, and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions, and offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the colony; unto which we promise all due submission and obedience.

      In witness whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names at Cape Cod the 11th of November, in the year of the reign of our Sovereign Lord King James, of England, France, and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth, 1620…”

      What parts of, “Having undertaken, for the Glory of God, and advancements of the Christian faith….” do YOU not understand?

      As for you finding it troubling for a pastor to speak against other religions, any pastor who is a follower of Christ must speak the truth, and that truth is that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life, and no one comes to the Father but through Him. If you find a pastor teaching false religions and gospels troublesome, it is Jesus you find troublesome- not the pastor.

      1. I AM CHRISTIAN. NEVER! HAVE I BEEN 2 A CHURCH WHERE THE PASTOR SAID THESE THINGS! I HAVE YET 2 READ THIS KIND OF MESSAGE IN THE BIBLE! AS FAR AS I KNOW JESUS & GOD WOULD NEVER! SAY THESE THINGS NOR WOULD THEY CONDONE THIS SPEECH & BEHAVIOR!

        “any pastor who is a follower of Christ must speak the truth, and that truth is that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life, and no one comes to the Father but through Him.”

        WHICH MEAN THE IDIOT UP YONDER IS NOT A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST! HE SAID NOTHING CLOSE TO THIS WHICH IS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!

        “Woe 2 u, teachers of the law &Pharisees, u hypocrites! U travel over land &sea 2win a single convert, &when he becomes 1, u make him twice as much a son of hell as u r!”

        NEVER have a been to a church where the pastor spoke like this, a church where this is the message coming from the pastor!
        I would walk out! I would not attend a church where I am not going to be listening to the pastor. rick said he was not listening. LIE
        I always research the background of a church and their beliefs before attending! rick ole boy knew where he was going!
        I would not attend a church where I dont do not agree with the pastor. rick said he does not agree with this pastor. LIE!
        NEVER EVER would i allow a pastor i dont agree with to lay hands on me & pray over me! who does this? oh yea, RICKY boy.

        I FIND IT TROUBLESOME THAT THIS PASTOR IS TEACHING HIS FALSE RELIGION! HIS “PHONY THEOLOGY!”

        “Woe 2 u, teachers of the law &Pharisees, u hypocrites! U r like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside r full of dead men’s bones & everything unclean”

  10. “[W]e have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. . . . Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” – John Adams (Source: John Adams, The Works of John Adams, Second President of the United States, Charles Francis Adams, editor (Boston: Little, Brown, and Co. 1854), Vol. IX, p. 229, October 11, 1798.)

    The Constitution is wholly inadequate for the ungodly and those who believe in marxist utopianism.

    In other words if you fall under these two categories, you will not be happy in America. You should perhaps find another country where you can share your common values.

    1. Um, hey genius, I think he was talking about America haters…you should work on your comprehension.

      1. STOP taking Pastor Terry for granted. He is no friend of the Santorum campaign, and his congregation is humming along happily. In the meantime, Santorum is toast.

    2. Just because white man came here from another country, slaughtered the idians and stole their land, does not make you a native.

      IN FACT, IT MAKE “YA’LL” MURDERING IMMIGRANT ILLEGAL ALIEN THIEVES!

      SO “YA’LL” “GET OUT!” AND TAKE TERRY AND ALL THE OTHER CHILD MOLESTING PRIEST WITH “YA’LL!”

      Terry is the one taking God for granted, thinking he’s going to get away with using the Lord’s name in vain, teaching his “PHONY THEOLOGY!” and leading his congregation to #ell!

      “Woe 2 u, teachers of the law &Pharisees, u hypocrites! U travel over land & sea 2 win a single convert, & when he becomes 1, u make him twice as much a son of hell as u r!”

      “Woe 2 u, teachers of the law &Pharisees, u hypocrites! U r like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside r full of dead men’s bones & everything unclean”

  11. Wow! That was a wonderful breath of fresh air!

    Terry asks God for mercy so that America might be redeemed.
    Wright asks God for curses so that America might be condemned.

    This contrast exemplifies the difference between hard-core Communists, like Obama, on the one hand and Conservative Patriots on the other.

    So, the Legacy Media is critical of Santorum over this?

    Heh.

    I don’t think the really want to go there.

  12. Also, a quick reminder to many of the Christians posting on this thread: Before you are an American, you are a Christian. That being the case, the goal of Christ was not to lead a rights march against the gov’t or demand his rights. His goal was to change the hearts of the world. That goal isn’t accomplished by rights marches or letters to Senators, or blasting the left for their intolerance. In fact, this just further shames the name of Christ amongst unbelievers. If you really want to change this country do the following: repent of the sin in your life, seek hard after the face of God, and love the world as Christ has. Pleasing Christ is greater than being right. Don’t get caught in this trap. It’s what our enemy wants. Don’t say “Get out,” whether to unbelievers or to those trying to take our rights. Rather, we must say, “Come in.” The world needs hope, love, and forgiveness. We have it. Let’s live it!

  13. I agree that this is likely what Bro. Dennis meant, but your interpretation is hard to stretch when you look at the video. I love Bro. Dennis and believe in the work he is doing at GSBC, but when you are in front of a national audience, you have to be careful of the words you say. To anyone who doesn’t know him (most of the world that saw this video) there is no way they could see that in the context you describe. And, they take it to mean what it sounds like it means. When this happens, it makes us look really bad.

  14. Very well posted Scoop. Thank you.

    If he had have said God D*** America, he would have been fine. If he had have blamed everything on the rich and white people, there’d be no controversy. But since he stated that NAME that liberals and every other religious group find so offensive- JESUS CHRIST, that is a no no. It’s not the pastor who is offensive to these people, it’s the Name he and Santorum and so many of us believe on – Jesus Christ who is offensive. Liberals are great at twisting and ignoring, and they’re great at giving threats but can’t take them. I’ve had people tell me I ought to go back to Canada because of my politics and my Jesus. That’s not what this pastor said- and Scoop, thank you for setting it straight, as I haven’t seen it anywhere else.

  15. Friends, I hate to say this, but we are in a battle not just for our Country but for our First Amendment Rights (which are God given rights btw)! November 6, We Vote!!!

      1. LOL Sanitorum! Good one my friend! BTW you forgot the ” and change” on the end of “I hope” 😉

  16. He didn’t tell liberals and non-Christians to get out of the country. He said if you don’t like the freedoms given to us and don’t want Christians to have a voice then get out. He’s saying if you don’t like the rights the Constitution gives us then get out because you are not American at heart. Well, my interpretation of what he said anyway.

    The big push by the left is to silence free speech, and I believe that is un-American. I also agree that if you want European style government and socialism go to Europe. If you want newspapers to be silenced because you don’t agree with the opinions move to Venzuela. The left claims to be tolerant but they are anything but.

  17. The world isn’t used to good, wholesome, honest preaching. Sin cannot take the light when it shines. And lies cannot take the truth… because truth = freedom and exposes lies. God’s Word is sharper than any two edged sword and mightier than this measely world.

    That being said, I can understand secularists getting their panties in a wad over this. Many people (Christians?) on this site have accused Santorum as being sanctimonious, pious, or someone imposing his beliefs on everyone. Poppycock. If our future president doesn’t have a moral core and a faith based on the Rock, then nothing will change (for the better).

    Finally, I’m firmly convinced that we are nearer to end times then ever before. Christians are now being openly and unabashedly attacked. Israel is now surrounded by enemies. Christians are becoming lovers of self and turning from God. And America is losing it’s soul. All of this is supposed to happen if we are close to our Lord’s return. And frankly, I hope He comes soon. May He find us faithful.

  18. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR CLARIFYING! I AM SO GLAD SOMEONE IS FINALLY TAKING UP FOR HIM! He is a very passionate preacher, who LOVES the Lord and also very passionate about America! I have never seen someone so proud to be an American and have heard him preach numerous times to which he ALWAYS expresses to love all no matter what race, religion, etc. we are to LOVE everyone! He never (as some people have said on other blogs) tells us who to vote for. I think once his words were actually “I don’t care who you vote for, whether democrat, republican,independant etc., just pray and ask God to lead you to that person or persons!” I have heard him say that he feels blessed to be a part of such a Great nation! He is nothing like the others have made him out to be! Shame on them! I think more Christians need to stand in support of him and for our faith!

  19. If you don’t like America and the way we do things, then get the hell out. I can’t disagree with that. He didn’t specify one group. But if the shoe fits libsticks…wear it…

  20. Thank You for clarifying this! I am glad someone is finally taking up for him! Read all not just pieces of what he said!

  21. An eloquent example of Scoopology. Well done sir.

    It seems that nothing remains of the left but slander and lies, more slander with lie toppings, and sprinkles, with a fake cherry on top. Who cares what they say and what they claim? I take what they say with a pallet full of salt these days. They are lefty sheep endlessly screaming over gnats while swallowing camels. The stuff that comes out of their mouths would be more appropriate exiting a booty. It’s like it’s their duty to sound like a booty.

    Somebody light a match.

  22. I will try and break the intensity today with a little levity >>

    THE HAIRCUT

    Blessed are those that can give without remembering, and take without
    forgetting.

    One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked
    about his bill, and the barber replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you, I’m
    doing community service this week.’
    The florist was pleased and left the shop.

    When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a ‘thank
    you’ card and a dozen roses waiting for
    him at his door.

    Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill , the
    barber again replied, ‘I cannot accept money from you, I’m doing community
    service this week.’ The cop was happy and left the shop.
    The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a ‘thank you ‘
    card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

    Then a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill ,
    the barber again replied, ‘I can not accept money from you. I’m doing
    community service this week.’ The Congressman was very happy and left the
    shop.

    The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there
    were a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.

    And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the
    citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.

    BOTH POLITICIANS AND DIAPERS NEED TO BE CHANGED OFTEN AND FOR THE SAME
    REASON!

  23. The problem isn’t what the left throws at Rick, it’s that Rick needs to be able to turn it around and destroy it.

  24. The problem isn’t what the left throws at Rick, it’s that Rick needs to be able to turn it around and destroy it.

    1. That is what we are doing, Master Seargeant. We are stepping up for him. I understand that Mr. Santorum is busy at the moment.

  25. Why are non-religious types always aghast & shocked when a Christian states his beliefs? Of course a Christian minister will say that he’s not worshiping Budha. How is that a surprise?

  26. Look – This is simple – He SAID:

    I’m tired of people telling me that I can’t say those words.

    I’m tired of people telling us as Christians that we can’t voice our beliefs or we can no longer pray in public.

    Listen to me, If you don’t love America, If you don’t like the way we do things I have one thing to say – GET OUT!

    He simply “said” – BACK OFF ! –

    Don’t forget that this Great Nation was founded under Christian Beliefs – Leave us alone –
    Don’t impose your folly on us

  27. Thanks for posting this Scoop. Not only is the left trying to use this against Santorum, but some folks on the right are to…on these boards.

  28. I don’t see anything wrong with what he said… it’s called ONE NATION UNDER GOD and if you don’t like it… you can get the hell out of our country…

  29. We need a speaker who speaks like Pastor Terry – To be our leader

    We need a candidate that has the ability to make us stand up and cheer for this Country and its ideals

    We need a rabble rouser of peaceful revolution –

    Every speaker that I have seen here that is inspirational – SPEAKS FROM THE HEART

    unlike zero that simply regurgitates words from a teleprompter

    Pastor Terry is correct and simply “said” “Love it or Leave it”

    He “said” we have the right to think freely – and not be attacked

    He “said” – If you don’t like this freedom – keep it to yourself or go away –

    Makes sense to me ! – I am staying right here !

    And frankly – I don’t care what the left “thinks” anyway

    1. I go one step further than that, Joe. I am vocal in public with strangers when I hear or see things that perturb me. I don’t recommend everyone do that, however as I have had to defend myself physically a time or two and I do have the advantage of size and training.

        1. Sadly, it is difficult to get and keep a CCP in the People’s Republic of Maryland. Fortunately, I am adept at using bits and pieces the government can’t confiscate like left fist and right fist. Plus, I am one of those odd dudes who LOVES the rough stuff.

          1. That’s why I moved from NY

            All legal in NC

            Someone asked me – “Why do you carry?”

            I said – “Because I can” –

            Couldn’t in NY – No regrets

  30. I watched the video before reading the TRS comments. It came off to me that he was saying “get out” to anyone who was a non-christian. If he meant it the way TRS worded it, he did a poor job at conveying the message in my opinion. Has the Pastor been asked for clarification?

    1. By clarification, did you mean to say apology? What needs to be clarified for you?

      The GET
      or the OUT?

      1. No, not apology. The guy obviously means what he said. TRS clarified the Pastor’s comments. I’d like to hear what the Pastor has to say about his comments. If he says what TRS interpreted it to be, then I’m fine with it.

        1. He was in church speaking from the pulpit. He has no reason to clarify to you, or me, or Scoop or anyone here. The whole point of this, at least from my opinion is that the left is trying to show that a pastor whom Rick Santorum is associated with is an intolerant bigot. They are trying to smear the Pastor and Rick Santorum. Now, where was the left when “rev” Wright was saying God D*** America and every other hateful thing?

    2. No, he said that anyone who expects Christians to not voice our beliefs to get out. We hear, everyday people defending muslims and athiests against their being offended by someone elses beliefs. NEVER the other way around. I agree with every word the Good Pastor said. If I offend you then you are free to get the hell away from me. That is what he is saying.

      1. I would agree with that. I’m just saying on first watch, it didn’t come off like that to me.

  31. Thank you for the great post! Pastor Terry is saying what most or us on the right have been thinking for so long. It takes a lot of courage and faith to speak the truth. It seems like the left is trying to erase anything that has to so with Christianity. They will continue to do this unless we push back and push back hard.

    This is just a personal story of mine. When I go out to eat in public, I usually do the cross then say a prayer of thanks. Before I do this, I always think in my head if people are staring at me or not. The sad thing is, why should I even care!? I am not hurting anyone and no one should be offended at what I do. I guess what I’m trying to say is the culture has made people believe that it’s not okay to be a person of faith out in public.

    1. You may be surprised at the amount of unspoken support you are receiving in that example.

  32. He gave voice to what so very many of us have been thinking for so long. I do not care if the left is having a shit fit over it. I really, really don’t care. It is said that in parenting one should ignore a child that is throwing a tempertantrum. Therefore, I am ignoring the Left.

  33. I personally don’t like this type of hellfire and brimstone preaching. I find it intolerant and judgmental. The basis of the message had merit but he went too far.

    The reason liberals don’t like it is the same reason they hate Gov. Sarah Palin and any other public figure who is a Christian. Liberals as well as some conservatives do not want to be accountable for their actions. By the way, we are all accountable whether we believe in God or not.

    1. The services I attend are not like this –

      BUT I would like to see more of this type of preaching

      1. It keeps you awake

      2. It arouses the inner spirit

      3. It often addresses current issues in realtion to the Bible

      All services are worship – but this type gets me “going” like a catchy tune
      while driving home the message

      1. I don’t need hellfire and brimstone to keep me awake or arouse my inner spirit. A good minister who has the right words does that just fine. To each his own.

  34. I’ve watched this several times and I really don’t see where you’re coming from.

    Your argument would be stronger if he had mentioned freedom of religion or the constitution anywhere in his speech. I think from the words you excerpted, which I will reprint below:

    I don’t care what the liberals say. I don’t care what the naysayers say. This nation was founded as a Christian nation – the God of Abraham, the God of Issac and the God of Jacob – there’s only one God! There’s only one God and his name is Jesus!

    I’m tired of people telling me that I can’t say those words. I’m tired of people telling us as Christians that we can’t voice our beliefs or we can no longer pray in public.

    Listen to me, If you don’t love America, If you don’t like the way we do things I have one thing to say – GET OUT!

    We don’t worship Buddha! I said we don’t worship Buddah, we don’t worship Mohammad, we don’t worship Allah, we worship God. we worship God’s son Jesus Christ.

    By far the most logical translation would be…

    (first two paragraphs are as is)

    Listen to me, if you don’t love (our Christian nation) America, and you don’t like the way we do things here, GET OUT!

    Because here we don’t worship Buddha, we don’t worship Mohammed, we don’t worship Allah, we worship God. We worship Jesus Christ!

    Your interpretation, nice though it is, requires one to infer quite a bit that isn’t in the original statement.

    First he says America is a Christian nation. Then he says that he’s sick of people denying that fact. Then he says that if you don’t like how we do things here to leave. Then immediately after saying that, he says how we do things here, which is that we worship Jesus, which is to say, if you don’t worship Jesus, you can leave.

    Furthermore, if he were talking about freedom of religion, then why would he specifically say that we don’t worship Buddha or Allah etc.? If he were talking about freedom of religion, then wouldn’t he affirm that some Americans do practice Buddhism (which doesn’t really entail “worshipping Buddha”) and some people do worship Allah? And some people worship no gods at all.

    The whole freedom of religion thing is a nice interpretation, but it’s kind of belied by the actual text of Dennis Terry’s statements.

    I do, however, agree that these statements shouldn’t be used to criticize Rick Perry. I don’t really care what Rev. Wright said, and I don’t really care what this guy says either.

    1. Since when do we Christians have to hold our tongues and give the floor to any OTHER religion but our own. Screw your opinion of it. We have schools being sued and students being dropped from colleges for expressing their own Christian beliefs. You don’t seem to have a problem with that. Why not?

      1. You don’t have to hold your tongues. The Pastor didn’t hold his tongue. But free speech goes both ways. If someone preaches, someone else has the ability to criticize that preach.

        1. Are you joking, Bleep? Athiests and muslims expect to not even hear a word that they might disagree with claiming they are being discriminated against because a Christian prays at a school football game. I got news for you. Don’t want to pray? Fine, don’t. Don’t want to hear me pray? Fine, go the hell away. Want to force me to stop? GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.

          1. I don’t see where we fall in disagreement. Everybody can say whatever they want, wherever they want. And no one has the right to stop it.

            1. Jim, I’m glad to see that answer. You do see Christianity being attacked daily on the news in this country though, don’t you? I think the pastor is addressing this apparent attack o Christianity all around the world.

              1. Jim, I’m glad to see that answer. You do see Christianity being attacked daily on the news in this country though, don’t you? I think the pastor is addressing this apparent attack o Christianity all around the world.

                That is irrelevant to the context of the pastor’s statements. Free individuals have the right to debate ideas, even religion. You lose credibility when your argument becomes “If you don’t agree with me, then leave”. Why should one leave their home and family because they disagree with someone else? Answer: no valid reason.

        2. Are you joking, Bleep? Athiests and muslims expect to not even hear a word that they might disagree with claiming they are being discriminated against because a Christian prays at a school football game. I got news for you. Don’t want to pray? Fine, don’t. Don’t want to hear me pray? Fine, go the hell away. Want to force me to stop? GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.

    2. Your argument would be stronger if he had mentioned freedom of religion or the constitution anywhere in his speech.

      The problem with your analysis is those things are already understood by the audience he was speaking to and don’t need to be said.

      Furthermore, if he were talking about freedom of religion, then why would he specifically say that we don’t worship Buddha or Allah etc.?

      He was speaking to Christians not to Muslims etc… And the fact is Christians started this nation to practice freedom of religion. Again these things are already understood by his audience and there is no need to point out the obvious. Even the atheist Jefferson understood the concept that Our Creator allows freewill has to be adhered to whether you believe in God or not if we are to remain a free people.

      1. Jefferson was athiest? He used to hold church services in the capital building on Sundays. He wrote “endowed by our Creator” in the Declaration of Independence.

    3. The key portion:

      I’m tired of people telling me that I can’t say those words. I’m tired of people telling us as Christians that we can’t voice our beliefs or we can no longer pray in public.

      As a Christian he doesn’t like being told to be quiet, especially in a nation that has a Christian foundation.

      He’s rejecting intolerance.

      1. It’s an exercise in futility to make people hear it just one (your) way. Singling out Buddhism and Islam in this way only highlights that he is interested in tolerance first and foremost for Christians. That’s no longer cool. Didn’t you notice the less than enthusiastic applause from Rick Santorum? This is the Rev. Wrong for him. The problem is with GOVERNMENT infringement on ALL religions.

      2. As a Christian he doesn’t like being told to be quiet, especially in a nation that has a Christian foundation.

        He’s rejecting intolerance.

        Let me see if I understand this: he is rejecting “intolerance” by being intolerant? Logic, how does it work?

    4. This sermon is not about freedom of religion in both directions. Christians are told we can’t pray out loud or at a community meeting or in a restaurant because it is insensitive to other religions. It is about time someone pointed out that we Christians have the very same right to express our beliefs where ever we want. It is supposed to be a two way street but it has become a one way street. We Christians are told to bow to others deisres no matter what we believe. I, for one have had it with the attack on Christianity and you seem to be missing the point which makes you part of the problem.

      Question, what is your religious preference? Athiest?

      1. Of course, what the attack on Christianity is really about is destroying this nation. Must get rid of Christianity before Communism can commence. Of course, godlessness leaves a vacuum that Islam fills.

        I think we need more pastors like this, standing up for our faith.

        1. We ALL need to start taking ti to the opposition like this pastor did. I think this thread may act as a catalyst for just that.

        2. I agree. We need every pastor of EVERY religion to demand that the people take a stand for their personal beliefs. Religion goes, family goes, freedom goes.

          If anyone thinks the petty tyrant and those like him have any idea that the future will be peopled with strong individuals, unafraid to band together and resist tyranny, protect their borders, raise their children as they choose, pick their neighbors and their friends based on common understanding of shared values and to drive out those who disagree, you are wrong.

          His future will be peopled by beings who look alike, talk, think, dance and sing alike, and clap their idle, unskilled hands in unison to another communist slogan. He will measure the new American based on two principles: Loyalty and Obedience, two human qualities easily adopted by weak, inbred, witless morons, those despised by decent members of society.

          And like a primitive tribal chieftain, desirous to protect the tribe, the deviant pimp will leave unwanted babies outside the camp to die and push the non obedient, the elderly and the weak into the dark to starve. Oh wait, that’s already started.

          I say GET OUT! to any who support the tyrant and double it for any who are indifferent.

      2. This sermon is not about freedom of religion in both directions. Christians are told we can’t pray out loud or at a community meeting or in a restaurant because it is insensitive to other religions.

        Where are Christians prevented from prayers in restaurants? I guess I could see a private business request that one keep it down, but nothing prevents one from praying. Community meeting? You mean government? Well there’s your issue. You don’t have a right to utilize a government function to promote your religious beliefs. This is not an “attack” on your religion, it is simply the tragedy of the commons. That which is everyone’s is really no one’s. As a libertarian, my suggestion is to shrink the size and scope of government down so small that the “public” sphere becomes negligible and then your right to private religious expression expands.

        Question, what is your religious preference? Athiest?

        Atheism is not a religion.

    5. “It cannot be emphasized too clearly and too often that this nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religion, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason, peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.” Patrick Henry

  35. Scoop – You are on target ! – The liberals again are ignoring the written facts

    We need a speaker who speaks like Pastor Terry – To be our leader

    We need a candidate that has the ability to make us stand up and cheer for this Country and its ideals

    We need a rabble rouser of peaceful revolution –

    Every speaker that I have seen here that is inspirational – SPEAKS FROM THE HEART

    unlike zero that simply regurgitates words from a teleprompter

    Pastor Terry is correct and simply said “Love it or Leave it”

    Makes sense to me !

  36. Unapologetic! So when the lamestream media began to critize Rick Santorum for attending we shoudl put-up the words of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright. What a contrast that will be!

  37. The leftists are trying to shut down ANY speech that does not go along with their agenda.

    Rev. Jeremiah Wright on why he hates “ignorant, arrogant” white people

  38. God bless Pastor Terry for his courage to take a stand and speak out but it is going to take more than him, so it is incumbent upon each of us who are called by His Name to do the same. As the pastor was speaking I was thinking about what the Lord said to Joshua “be of good courage” and know the Lord is with him and anyone who stands with God fighting for the Kingdom.

    If David killed Goliath with a stone and our weapons are greater and “mighty through God” then it’s time put on the Armor, take the sword of the Spirit out of the sheath, and rise up in the Name of the Lord.

    The naysayers and the fearful are not “more than conquerors” but we are and can and will win by God’s grace and His glory. Amen.

    Anyone with me?

    1. “What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31

        1. Though the actual number is hard to figure, I would guess that we have another half million current and former Marines right with us. That isn’t even counting the other branches of our vaunted military.

  39. Compare the speeches of religious leaders on the left:

    A Revealing Look at Obama’s Easter
    http://www.gopusa.com/theloft/2011/04/26/a-revealing-look-at-obamas-easter/

    A story by WRNO radio digs deeper into what was said on Sunday by Pastor Wallace Charles Smith.
    “[Pastor Smith] talked about how his baby grandson’s gurgling is actually “talking” because he is saying ‘I am here … they tried to write me off as 3/5 a person in the Constitution, but I am here right now … and is saying I am not going to let anybody from stopping me from being what God wants me to be.'”
    The pastor hears American institutional racism in a baby’s gurgle? Do most people with infants hear Constitutional bigotry in their baby’s gibberish? Did any mention of the 3/5 clause or racism in general make it into the Easter service you attended? Is this pastor’s amazing leap from a baby bark to white oppression another coincidence to add to the list, or has he established a pattern of race baiting and white bashing in the past?

    1. The pastor said the baby was saying, “I am not going to let anybody from stopping me from being what God wants me to be.'”
      Good thing his mama didn’t do the typical liberal thing and abort him then.

  40. If only the open-minded of the libs would come and see the video and read your response. It was pretty obvious to me, having said similar myself. Oh well. Some people’s kids…

  41. “Just wanted to add, if it weren’t clear, that the reason this is important is simply because they are trying to use their false premise by extension against Rick Santorum. ”

    Yes!!!!!!

  42. Thanks RS, I have just been fighting my brother and friend about this, and I didn’t know what they were saying, though I asked for info, which they couldn’t cough up. I’m not a Christian, but I am more Christian than they.

    1. Chris… may I suggest C.S. Lewis’ “Mere Christianity”. It’s a series of small talks he gave on the BBC between 1942 and 1944. He compiled them into a small book in 1952. I read it thirty years ago, and recently reread it. It may be a good place for you to start.

      He says almost the exact thing as Pastor Denis Terry about the God we worship. Of course in 2012… Lewis would end up with British Cops at his door, or at the very least, he would never be allowed on the BBC. My! How times have changed.

      1. I second “Mere Christianity!”

        addendum: Come to think of it, I’d second anything by C.S. Lewis!

    2. WTF? You’re not a Christian but you’re more Christian than they are? That makes no sense! Just like all these other clapping seals that have written their idiotic thoughts on someone else’s misinterpretation of a political speech given by a deep southern inbred who himself doesn’t understand what he’s saying. No one anywhere in America is telling anyone they can’t believe in whatever it is they want to believe in but…….when you say it in a public forum, it’s also the right of the people who are the the unwelcoming recipients of said public ramblings to voice their opinion of the b.s. spewing from the mouths of the addresser. If you don’t want people to be critical of your churching, stay in church!

  43. Amen, Preacher,your preaching to the choir here! Of Course Lefty/Liberals are going to put a wild and crazy spin on it,they are Godless and immoral. Keep up the good fight!!!

  44. Thank you for posting this is it’s entire context ~

    I have to admit I raised my eyebrows a bit when I first heard the cherry picked comments on a local station. When you listen to it in it’s entirety though, it becomes a non issue and nothing that can be compared to the racial BS coming out of Rev. Wright or even Rev. Jackson.

  45. Yes! Preach it Scoop…reading a great article on group think and how every PC agenda requires it to become acceptable. Thank you for having the courage to not follow the pack!
