American Pastors Network on UK Terror Attack: Appeasement in Face of Evil is Always Disastrous
APN President Sam Rohrer Says Problem of Terrorism Will Never Be Remedied Unless Source Is Identified
PHILADELPHIA—ISIS has claimed responsibility for this week’s deadly attack in London, which the group said was carried out by a “soldier of the Islamic State,” the Associated Press reported yesterday morning.
American Pastors Network (APN, www.americanpastorsnetwork.net) President Sam Rohrer released the following statement on the act of terrorism in London that killed at least four, including an American man from Utah, a British police officer and a teacher, after the attacker plowed through 40 pedestrians with a car on Westminster Bridge, then carried out a knife attack outside Parliament, according to The Guardian.
“The terrorist attack in the UK has the world on edge,” Rohrer said. “But will the British government finally wake up and call Islamic terrorism what it is? And will Americans awaken to the threat that exists here? Appeasement to evil is always a disaster. The UK and its leaders since 9/11 have been in an appeasement mode. They must learn from Winston Churchill, who said that individual Muslims ‘may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. … and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.’
“Until we identify Islam as evil and the source of jihadism, Americans and Brits alike will be subjugated and in grave danger,” he concluded.
Rohrer and other APN leaders discuss headlines like these daily on “Stand in the Gap Today,” the radio ministry of APN that airs on 425 stations nationwide. The “Stand in the Gap” lineup of programming allows the faithful to consider news and current events from a biblical and constitutional perspective.
