Casting out Demon's...

Terry Gross has a look today at 'The New Apostolic Reformation' - fascinating group -

Click HERE to listen to the interview.

"An emerging Christian movement that seeks to take dominion over politics, business and culture in preparation for the end times and the return of Jesus, is becoming more of a presence in American politics. The leaders are considered apostles and prophets, gifted by God for this role."... "Two ministries in the movement planned and orchestrated Texas Gov. Rick Perry's recent prayer rally, where apostles and prophets from around the nation spoke or appeared onstage. The event was patterned after The Call, held at locations around the globe and led by Lou Engle, who has served in the Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders of the NAR. Other NAR apostles endorsed Perry's event, including two who lead a 50-state "prayer warrior" network. Thomas Muthee, the Kenyan pastor who anointed Sarah Palin at the Wasilla Assembly of God Church in 2005, while praying for Jesus to protect her from the spirit of witchcraft, is also part of this movement."

So, Sarah Palin and Rick Perry have ties to this group... and, as Fresh Air points out, the group has a number of quaint belief's, like "They believe that folks belonging to the Masons are possessed by Baal." apparently in their effort to drive out Baal they post stakes at Mason Lodges with a verse from Jeremiah on it.
They're headed to Detroit in November, because Muslim's too are possessed by demon's.

Palin and Perry are Tea Party favorites... as Putnam's research showed they long for more religion in our government - could be a perfect storm brewing, disgruntled good ole' boys and girls, looking for some divine intervention to solve their problems, in a world where "superstition, faith, opinion and orthodoxy" have supplanted "rationality, science, evidence, logical argument and debate..."
