Patriot Churches

Back in 2018, Ken Peters, pastor of Covenant Church in Spokane, Washington, and members of his church began holding monthly worship services outside of the local Planned Parenthood. They called themselves, The Church at Planned Parenthood (TCAPP). Two years later, he and wife founded the Patriot Church movement, which unapologetically fuses Christian faith and American politics. The movement describes itself as “a spiritually active, governmentally engaged and grassroots effort designed to take back our communities from tyranny.” It believes that demonic forces are attacking “the cultural and religious fabric that makes the USA so special.” As such, it argues that Christians are called by God “to resist [this] tyranny wherever it exists.”

The first church was founded near Knoxville, Tennessee (where Peters is pastor) in 2020. Another soon followed in Virginia, and his former church in Spokane also signed on. Another church in Washington (Moses Lake) joined in 2021, and two more are set to open in 2022 (in Texas and Florida).

Although the number of churches is small, the movement is part of a loose network of individuals, churches, and organizations that believe the U.S. was founded as a Christian nation and are called to restore the U.S. to its Christian roots ("The Appeal of Christian Nationalism"). The movement appears to be largely driven by Peters's energy and influence. Only time will tell whether it can survive without it.

I recently was invited to write a short essay on the movement for the World Religions and Spirituality Project. You can find the essay here:

  1. Bet you wont read it all.

    You admit the mainline denominations are withering away rapidly, Why? Because of people like you.

    This nation is collapsing, and your grandchildren and great grandchildren will have their wealth taken from them (South Africa, Rhodesia) and be out numbered by foreigners ruling over them, who hate them ("CRT"). You have benefited from 1800 years of Christian civilization, European civilization. And you have thrown it in the garbage, why? Because you are a fool.

    I am generation Z (born 2000 AD), I speak from my life, from the hell you and people like you have created for me and my generation. Nihilism, drugs, meaningless sex, hated for my race from birth (White), divorce, degenerated "culture" (rap music, movies), sodomy, pornography (from age 5 I am exposed to this filth), less jobs, state taught ATHEISM. And I look unto the religion of my ancestors, for a bastion, a refuge from the everyday onslaught, I look to the Church of the Lord! What do I find there? YOU! Scum, OLD, decrepit, destroyers of the FAITH, in the CHURCH!

    Why do more young people not join themselves unto the body of Christ? I will enlighten your diseased mind old man. You and your ILK have taken the bastion of refuge, the house of the LORD, the citadel of righteousness, and turned it into a DEN OF DEVILS! You think yourself safe, you think yourself good, you think yourself righteous? Your complicity has decimated the Church, has decimated this nation, has decimated the WHOLE WESTERN WORLD!

    Just think on your daughter? You beautiful little girl. How many men do you think she has FUCKED on Berkeley Campus? In her whole life how many men have rammed their dicks into her vagina? 1-3? LOL. YOU WISH. HAHAHAH... 10? Maybe? Hmmm that is the AVERAGE nowadays. But an average does mean their are women who go ABOVE and BEYOND!!! AHAHAHAHAH. Fool your OWN daughter IS A WHORE. WHORES in the old days would be ashamed at what women do IN THESE LAST DAYS! Does she even claim the name of Christ anymore? Or has she renounced even His holy name in her harlotry? Does she play the good girl around you? At house parties? At family gatherings? I wounder? Does she act the same at the FRAT parties? LOL. When she settles down (if she ever does) (hmm maybe she already has?) will the marriage even last? Will they have any kids? 1? 2 if you are lucky.. scared mentally by a divorce? Even less influence from the LORD and his HOLY words. Will her daughter(s) even get married? How many men will they SUCK and FUCK? I can tell you OLD MAN from my generation.. NONE of my friends even claim His holy name, NONE are planning on getting married, NONE want to have children.

    Now I wonder how will you cope? Universalism? All are saved even if they do not claim His holy name? LOL... Keep thinking that idiot, after being complicit in the DAMING to HELL of my whole generation AND YOUR OWN CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN! Come up with every cope, every excuse, every FEEBLE attempt, to stop yourself from KNOWING the TRUTH! YOU ARE THE PROBLEM! YOU ARE THE CAUSE! YOU ARE IN LEAGUE WITH SATAN! WAKE UP OLD MAN! WAKE UP FROM YOUR SLUMBER!

    Oh but hes got his money. Hes got his nice house. Hes going on trips to Europe! He will read even this message and shrug it off. To the grave he goes thinking he is a GOOD man. And he WILL GO STRAIGHT DOWN TO THE PIT THINKING HE IS "GOOD"!
