LCG Quoting The Washington Times

LCG has on a few occasions quoted The Washington Times in their writings. The Washington Times is a far right newspaper. But PCG's writers never bother to mention to their readers what The Washington Times is.

The Washington Times was founded in 1982 by a certain controversial religious movement originating from Korea. This religious movement from Korea teaches many things contrary to LCG's teachings. It has often been described by ex-members and non-members as a cult. Both Rick Ross and Steven Hassan have much information regarding this controversial religious movement originating from Korea.

This link between The Washington Times and this particular religious movement from Korea is never mentioned by LCG.

Unlike PCG and UCG the writers of LCG have rarely quoted The Washington Times. This reflects LCG's tendency to focus more on producing more spiritual sounding articles rather than fixating on political affairs. But even so LCG has occasionally cited articles from The Washington Times. LCG has never criticized them or bothered to mention that it was founded and funded by this particular controversial religious group originating from Korea.

Without further ado here are several instances in which LCG's writers have quoted The Washington Times.

This list includes articles written by Roderick C. Meredith, Douglas Winnail, Rod McNair, Rod Reynolds, Adam West, the late Carl Ponder and Charles Bryce (who has since left LCG and leads his own COG splinter group).


We still have some of the highest rates of drunkenness and drug use, divorce, crime and violence of any nation on earth. Our moral toboggan slide continues to accelerate. As reported by the Washington Times: "One study found that on prime-time television, references to porn were 300 percent more common in 1999 than in 1989" ("Amoral Expectations," June 2, 2001). Notably, in the same year, for the first time in history, fully one-third of the babies born in the United States were born out of wedlock ("Unwed mothers set a record for births," Washington Times, April 18, 2001). Television and other mainstream media, and even government agencies, now openly promote homosexuality. And any who protest are vilified and ostracized. (Roderick C. Meredith, Wake Up America!, January-February 2002.)

Yet even Great Britain, once considered an unflinching ally of the U.S., is feeling pressure from anti- American forces in Europe. Notice this “supportive” comment by British Prime Minister Tony Blair: “Because of America’s genuinely special position, people tend to exaggerate the extent to which the United States is saying, ‘We don’t care what the rest of the world thinks’.... When Europe and America stand together, the world is safer and more stable. When they come apart, the world becomes quite a dangerous place.... If we [in Europe] want to have greater say and greater power, then instead of complaining about America, we’ve got to face up to... developing a coherent defense capability and a set of institutions to allow Europe to speak strongly’” (“Blair Says America is Force for Good,” Washington Times , July 26, 2002). (Charles Bryce, America the Beautiful ... The Hated, The Isolated, January-February 2004.)

The daily press illustrates how liberal theologians have undermined the influence of the Christian church by expressing their doubts about God, the Bible, the deity of Jesus and other Christian doctrines. ... some American Episcopal priests promote pagan practices in their worship (The Washington Times, November 1, 2004). (Douglas Winnail, God's People Will Forget God!, May-June 2005.)

The former Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovsky refers to the EU as the "EUSSR." He does so, he explains, because the former USSR and the EU share the same goal: the obliteration of nations. "The European Union, like the Soviet Union, cannot be democratized," he says. If the EU becomes a genuine state it is bound to be an evil empire, because there is no European nation (Washington Times, 06/20/07). (Carl Ponder, Europe a step closer to reviving the Holy Roman Empire!, July 7, 2007.)

Another reason for the naval buildup is the growing appreciation for vital sea lanes, especially crucial "choke points" such as the Malacca Straits. Southeast Asian countries have long had to deal with piracy, but the specter of global terrorism adds urgency to protect vulnerable commercial sea traffic. As its economy has grown—along with the thirst for oil to fuel it—China has developed keener interest in protecting commercial interests through a true ocean-going navy. Around 30 percent of all international trade passes through the narrow, 550-mile Malacca Straits. Tankers coming through the Straits bring 80 percent of the oil needed by both Japan and China. While China's navy "currently lacks the ability to defend sea lanes that carry oil to China from the Middle East… it is discussing ways of doing so in the future" ("China speeds pace of military buildup," Washington Times, March 3, 2008). (Rod McNair, Who Will Rule The Waves?, November-December 2008.)

For decades, in the United States, the percentage of children born out of wedlock has been spiraling upwards. In 1999, for the first time, government statistics showed that fully one-third of births in the U.S. were to unwed mothers ("Unwed Mothers Set a Record for Births," Washington Times, April 18, 2001).  (Rod Reynolds, Rule Your Money, November-December 2008.)

An article in the Washington Times, "CBO: Obama stimulus harmful over long haul,"quotes a startling warning offered by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, which stated plainly that "President Obama's economic recovery package will actually hurt the economy more in the long run than if he were to do nothing." What a stark warning of the potential effect of hasty law-making! (Adam West, Goodless and Confused?, March 21, 2009.)

The report, entitled: “Economic Warfare: Risks and Responses,” noted that both China and Russia have suggested financial terrorism against the U.S. in the past. ... Some experts dispute the study findings noting that there is no specific evidence of financial terrorism, while the report soberly noted: “This is the ‘end game’ if the goal is to destroy America…”  (The Washington Times, February 28, 2011). (Financial terrorism, March 28, 2011.)

Today, however, millions of Americans have rejected these age-old standards. Consider this report by Washington Times author Ben Wolfgang:
“For the third time in the past year, more than 50 percent of Americans say they support same-sex marriage, a new Gallup poll released Monday states.
The figure shows a remarkable shift in public attitudes over the past two decades. In 1996, just 27 percent of Americans said they supported same-sex marriage. Even just three years ago, the figure was only 44 percent, the survey shows.
But the last three polls—in May 2011, November 2011 and Monday’s release—have put the number at 53 percent, an all-time high.
The change has largely been driven by young people. Monday’s survey shows that 70 percent of 18- to 29-year-olds support same-sex marriage. In 1996, it was just 41 percent, and in 2010, only 52 percent (“Support for same-sex marriage now firmly above 50 percent, poll says,” May 13, 2013). (Roderick C. Meredith, Hold on to Truth!, July-August 2013.)
The Washington National Cathedral, “The most visible Episcopal church in the U.S. is hosting its first openly transgender priest [Cameron Patrick] this month” (Washington Times, June 9, 2014). “The Right Rev. Gene Robinson, the first openly gay Episcopal priest… [will] be presiding the same service” (ibid.). “We at Washington National Cathedral are striving to send a message of love and affirmation, especially to LGBT youth… We want to proclaim to them as proudly and unequivocally as we can: Your gender identity is good and your sexual orientation is good because that’s the way that God made you” (ibid.). (Is God Pleased?, June 23, 2014.)


And so this list of quotes come to an end.

LCG trusts The Washington Times although they have cited The Washington Times rarely compared to PCG and UCG. LCG has never bothered to note to their readers who happens to own this newspaper.
