Remember – They Are Political Leftists First and Theology-Perverting Clergy SecondSharia-supporting clergy in Tennessee are rampant in all denominations, including Catholics, Protestants and Jews. They push the interfaith propaganda of how we all pray to the same god and all are part of the “family of Abraham.”
The Pope has permitted Islamic prayers and reading from the Koran in the Vatican. Catholic Charities of Tennessee, paid handsomely by the federal government for their “charitable” work, has filled our cities with Islamists who want all manner of sharia-adherent accommodations in the public arena.
Catholic Charities of Tennessee can also take credit for helping sharia-adherent Islamists become politically equipped with sufficient population density to try and elect their first candidate for the Nashville Metro Council with their “My Muslim Vote” campaign.
Starting in 2011, Nashville’s leftist Jewish leaders Avi Poster and Irwin Venick, organized the first “Family of Abraham” event. It was held at the uber-liberal uber-elitist private University School. (This private school was started years ago by Vanderilt University). The program featured a speaker from the Reform Judaism Religious Action Center (RAC), an organization all about social justice. Reform Judaism is the most extreme liberal branch of the religious group.
To get an idea of what the reform Jews care about, in 2017, the program director of the RAC along with other clergy, helped bless the opening of a DC Planned Parenthood center.
The next “Family of Abraham” event was organized by Jewish and Methodist leaders in Nashville and held at the West End United Methodist Church in Nashville. This time, they featured Muslim Brotherhood’s ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) National Director, Office of Interfaith and Community Alliances, Sayyid Syeed.
ISNA says the United Methodist Church (UMC) is its ally – “both working together in campaigning for social justice, peace and equity.’” This 2010 statement from ISNA was made in reference to the Chicago area UMC call to support the UMC’s involvement in the BDS (boycott, divestment & sanctions) campaign from Israel.
Nashville’s Temple Ohabai Shalom’s assistant Rabbi Shana Mackler and UMC Rev. Judi Hoffman, were part of the 2012, interfaith panel hosted by Lipscomb University which featured the Islamic Network Group (ING) presentation on women’s rights and Shariah.
The ING, a group affiliated with CAIR, ISNA and the dawah-centric ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America), was brought to Tennessee by AMAC to train them on how to go into schools to talk about Islam. Hijab-wearing Kurdish refugee Jihan Abdulla, sister of politically aggressive Islamist Kasar Abdulla, was quoted as saying she had more rights than American women. Go figure that one.
Rabbi Mackler is a proud supporter of Planned Parenthood, helping the organization to use her temple to hold its fundraiser in 2015. She makes no bones about performing illegal gay marriages at her house of worship – “The issue of gay marriage is something that really hits home for Shana. When she was in college, her father came out to her.”
Given her uber progressive and Islamist-apologist stances, it’s no surprise that rabbi Mackler spoke at this year’s Nashville Women’s March vowing to stand alongside AMAC leader Zulfat Suara who has openly embraced Jew-haters Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar.
Remember also, that the Women’s March was started by Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory who have come under fire for supporting Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite who has praised Hitler and described Jews as “satanic.” They also can’t get past their inbred anti-Semitism to say whether the State of Israel and its Jews have a right to exist.
The Nashville Women’s March is listed as a chapter of the Sarsour/Mallory march organization.
Mackler may have proved herself to be one of the most outrageous examples of having turned against her own people in favor of Islamist embracers of Jew-haters.
The rabbi and her husband, James Mackler, are endorsing Zulfat Suara for the Metro Nashville Council.
This is important to know for many reasons. The main reason is that James Mackler, uber progressive Democrat, is running for Lamar Alexander’s seat. Being the obedient “company man,” Mackler withdrew from the last Senate race after Phil Bredesen announced that he would run.
As if the world of religion and politics couldn’t get any more upside-down or any more sinister.
