Part of their mission statements states, "A soldier for Christ fights a spiritual battle. The enemy is not our fellow man but the principalities, the powers, the rulers of the darkness of this world . Our mission is to do battle with the lies of the enemy. To do battle with the corruption of this world"

No Freedoms in Amarillo Texas
never been in the building but has heard stories about what goes on in there. He heard what goes on, he had no idea of what was actually happening. But not only did they protest outside the club, they photographed people coming in and out, wrote down license plate numbers and thoroughly harassed these people who wanted nothing but to have a good time. The authorities new about the party and all the proper permits were filed, but this radical group decided to target them and infringe on their rights. They went to the Amirillo zoning board and made this group "Route 66" jump through hoops to receive the proper zoning permits. Repent Amarillo cost the club tens of thousands of dollars in renovation costs to bring the building up to code. After Repent members showed up at parties 32 times, many of Route 66's members left, afraid of being harassed and possible harmed. The Route 66 club was operating as a business, and, with only a few customers left, its owners were left with no choice but to close their doors and sell the location.
This is only one example of how the extreme Christian right feels that they are better than everyone else in the United States and can take it upon themselves to violate the rights of law abiding citizens.
This they call spiritual warfare.
Are these this the corruption of the world? Gay Pride events, Earth Day, Halloween and of course the one event that will send you straight to hell, the "Race for the Cure"
But of course they know they are doing the right thing becasue the leader of this group, Davis Grisham, heard the word of God.
"I heard the Lord speak to me," says Grisham, "not in my ear, but in my spirit, asking ‘David, what do you see?' " Grisham says that he "knew it was the Lord speaking," and he answered that he "saw the ruins like the gravestones of a dead, godless society.
"The Lord gave me a revelation immediately, and the revelation exploded in my mind," says Grisham
Normally when someoone hears voices they get put them on some serious medication, but not the Christians, it seems every evangelical out there has heard from God.
It is funny that the first thing you see when you get on their website after the militaristic theme and the gun shots is a soldier and a PayPal link for donations. That is the one thing this group and all the other evangelistic groups seem to need, money.
Repent Amarillo is being allowed to proliferate through Amarillo Texas becasue it seems that the city council is either too scared or spineless to defined the innocent from such a barbaric group. Oh I forgot, they are Christians they are the good guys... Bull Shit. When someone tells me that they are nice becasue they are Christian I fear them more than any Islamic Jihad.
I am getting so sick and tired of people doing thoughtless and cruel things to other human beings in the name of God. This group is just another in a long line of misguided religious zealots and those who have followed much like the Reverend Jim Jones in his compound in Jonestown, Guyana, South America.
We must speak out against this oppression and not let these right winged, ultra conservative, liberals take away our freedoms of speech, religion and sexuality.
