MARXIST ‘CRITICAL RACE THEORY’ INFILTRATES CHURCHES, THE CULTURE

Trevor Loudon  |  The Epoch Times*  | August 1, 2019, Updated: August 8, 2019 Commentary When the Southern Baptists, the largest Protestant denomination in the country, endorse “critical race theory” (CRT), you know American Christianity has a Marxism problem.

MEET GOD’S COMMUNISTS

Trevor Loudon  |  The Epoch Times* |  January 22, 2019, Updated: February 17, 2019 Commentary The United States is a deeply religious country. Very early on, the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) realized that if the United States was ever to be brought to socialism, religion would have to be harnessed to the task.

IT’S NOT ENOUGH TO BE PRO-FREEDOM; WE MUST ALSO BE ACTIVELY ANTI-COMMUNIST

Commentary Trevor Loudon  |  The Epoch Times*  | August 27, 2019, Updated: August 28, 2019   A recent NBC report criticizing The Epoch Times repeatedly emphasized that the publication is anti-communism, with the clear implication that this stance is anachronistic, paranoid, or unwarranted.
