Friends in Low Places

Here is an alarming article on how racial segregation made Jerry Falwell famous. The article describes Doug Phillips’s connection to Rev. Falwell. You can also read about how, in 1983, Falwell made his private jet available to Howard Phillips and the widow of Congressman Lawrence McDonald, a racist who founded the Western Goals Foundation, a front for the John Birch Society. Falwell was to be the keynote speaker for a Jamestown celebration hosted by Doug Phillips this month.

Doug is a close personal friend of the father of Creation Science, Henry Morris. On page 147 of his book, The Beginning of the World, Morris writes: “The descendants of Ham were marked especially for secular service to mankind… Thus, all of the earth’s ‘colored’ races, yellow, red, brown, and black—essentially the Afro-Asian group of peoples, including the American Indians—are possibly Hamitic in origin and included within the scope of the Canaanitic prophecy, as well as the Egyptians, Sumerians, Hittites, and Phoenicians of antiquity.” The so-called curse of Canaan in the book of Genesis was used by both Henry Morris and the antebellum South to justify chattel slavery of Africans.

Doug Phillips has called Rev. Joseph Morecraft, a pastor in Cumming, GA, “One of the greatest preachers and defenders of truth in America today.” Mr. Morecraft once preached a sermon entitled “South Africa as Observed by Joe Morecraft” in which he argued against equality of blacks and whites.

Ovid Need, the father-in-law of Doug’s employee, Matthew Chancey, has called “race-mixing” “socially, practically and Scripturally unwise.” Last I checked, something that is “Scripturally unwise” is called a sin.

    And when Darwin replaced Genesis as educated people’s story of origins, intellectuals from late Victorian to WW2 used “less and more evolved” to justify white supremacy. (This was a recurring subject in Stephen Jay Gould’s essays on history of science.) They even acted on it in a science called “Eugenics” until a certain National Socialist German Workers’ Party took the Eugenicists at their word and acted on it to the max.

    You see, “Men of Sin” (to use a Biblicism) will glom onto any Cosmic-level authority — Bible, Darwin, Koran, Marx, Nature, Freud, anything — to get Cosmic-level justification for what they wanted to do anyway.
