These days, when an army of men stands in a football stadium,
or on the Washington mall, chanting Jesus slogans, weeping, each man hugging
the next man and purging his sin in front of a giant video altar, they are
in general unaware of who it is that has amassed this army and brought them
there. The Promise Keepers cult is an American-based project of "utopian"
military and related religious and political operatives, associated with British
imperial strategy and the George Bush machine. We will detail here some of
the key personnel,. and the New Age sexual brainwashing they used to manufacture
This exposure is essential, because the project has been consistently boosted
by the "mainstream" media with no investigative journalism to find
out what was really going on. ABC News anointed Promise Keepers founder/front-man
Bill McCartney, a former University of Colorado football coach, as their "Person
of the Week" in February 1996. The Eastern Establishment press lavishly
promoted the October 1997 rally in Washington. D.C., ending with a cover story
in Time magazine. Press coverage of criticism from feminists, lesbians, and
atheists only served to promote the project.
The Promise Keepers experiment was begun on 70 Colorado men in 1990. About
4000 turned out to rallies in 1991. As attendance grew to 22,000 in 1992,
the project leaders arranged for the writing of a bizarre book intended to
mold the emotions and self-conception of their now-growing mass following.
Masculine Journey was written for the Promise Keepers by Lt Col. Robert Hicks,
a military expert in religious terrorism. It was published in 1993 under the
supervision of Hicks's Air Force colleague, Gen. Jerry White. a specialist
in military mobilization, military police, and electronic security. General
White is the longtime chairman of a military ministry group, "The Navigators."
whose NaviPress published the book, and a companion study guide for Promise
Keepers (PK) psychological trainers.
Hicks's book was distributed to every one of the 50.000 men who assembled
for the first PK mass rally, held at the University of Colorado's Folsom Field.
This free distribution was unique, since PK usually charges its men high prices
for group clothing items, worship accessories, and commercial aids to male
Promise Keepers then mass-marketed Masculine Journey, and its study guide,
through 1994, when about 275,000 people came to PK rallies, and 1995, when
attendance hit 725,000.
By 1995, the Hicks book had come under increasing criticism. Promise Keepers
stopped publicly selling the book, but they continued to endorse it for their
inductees, who buy it from NavIpress.
Masculine Journey to Sodom
Under veneer of Bible chapter and verse citations, Masculine Journey
is pagan psychological manipulation, akin to the New Age pornographic training
that shaped the lesbian and Wiccan upsurges of the 1960s. Its techniques are
congruent with those developed by the British military and intelligence services
through the Tavistock psychiatric institute, a pivotal agency in introducing
the drug-rock-sex counterculture to the USA. The author, Lt Col. Robert Hicks,
is an intelligence community professional in the field of post-traumatic shock.
The Tavistock Institute, pioneer in this field, viewed public shocks such
as the Vietnam War and the 1960s' multiple assassinations, as the opportunity
to radically alter the philosophy of the American population. The current
societal breakdown, with the stimulus of PK Nurrmberg-style rallies. gives
this mindbending a fair chance to succeed.
Hicks teaches "Religious Terrorism" to officers at the Air War
University (Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama). In that military course, be
explains the mental path that Christian Identity and other varieties of British-Israelite
race cultists are induced to travel and, similarly, with Jewish fanatics (Kach,
Kahane Chai). Islamic suicide bombers and Japanese armageddonist terrorists.
His Masculine Journey complements ad competes with radical feminism, making
the genitals the center of the Promise Keepers psyche. The book explains:
"Possessing a penis places unique requirements upon men before God.
. . . We are called to worship God as phallic kinds of guys, not as some
sort of androgynous, neutered nonmales, or the feminized males so popular
in many feminist enlightened churches. We are told by God to worship Him
in accordance with what we are, phallic men."
If you think pornography is an organized crime racket, you probably haven't
considered it as a phase of worship. Writes Hicks:
" I remember staring at.. .[an]ancient hawaiian. ..statue [when my
wife] questioned. 'Why is it so large?' Her question was . . . related to
. . . the size of the protruding phallus. . . .To me there was very little
difference between this Hawaiian idol/image and the artifacts that are sold
regularly in 'adult' bookstores. I'm sure some day future archaeologists
will dig up the adult toys from our current society and view them as elements
of our religious worship. They will be right because that is precisely what
they are and always have been. The phallus has always been the symbol of
religious devotion and dedication. Professor George Elder notes, 'Phallus,
like all great religious symbols, points to a divine reality that cannot
be apprehended otherwise.. . . It is not as a flaccid member that this symbol
is important to religion, but as an erect organ.' "
On the naked Jew
"Every Israelite, when looking at himself naked, was reminded
of how different [circumcised] he was from the Gentiles and for what purpose.
In this sense, his sexuality took on spiritual significance. Every time he
used his penis, he was making a spiritual statement about who he was and who
he worshipped and why."
On the "playful pleasure" of homosexuality
'God ... obviously knew men would be put into situations where this
would be a very real temptation. Whether it be men at sea for months at a
time, a men in prisons, or adolescent boys playfully experimenting with each
other, situations can create the temptation. The pleasure experienced in those
playful moments, or the bonding that occurs through the first experience-
subsequently repeated- does not change the reality of the creational order.
"I have often counseled gay men on my observation that even in their
sexual relations with each other, they must find a substitute opening for
their penis.... For a man to have satisfactory sex he must find an opening
for his penis. In rejecting the God-given opening of the woman, the homosexual
merely affirms what he thinks he is denying whenever he finds an alternate
And if men are going to "bond," PK style, they'll need to visualize
"Jesus was also very much zakar, phallic....Jesus was very much masculine,
and masculine means being male, and bring male means having a penis. There's
no way around it. Some in church history could not tolerate the exposure of
the Son of God's genitalia. Therefore, you will never find a portrait of the
crucifixion of Jesus with penis exposed even though it was a common Roman
custom to crucify criminals naked. Even the Gospel writers tell us that Jesus'
outward. garment was torn into four pieces, leaving the inner tunic, which
was then gambled for intact ...That left nothing. No underpants. Nothing."
Promise Keepers are told that homosexuality is an "inherent
passion," even in Christ
"I believe Jesus was phallic with all the inherent phallic passions
we experience as men. But it was never recorded that Jesus had sexual relations
with a woman. He may have thought about it as the movie ''The Last Temptation
of Christ' portrays. ... If temptation means anything, it means Christ was
tempted in every way as we are. That would mean not only heterosexual but
also homosexual temptation! I have found this insight to be very helpful for
gay men struggling with their sexuality" (emphasis in the original).
Based on the archetypes of the Satanic occult psychiatrist Carl Jung, the
PK book calls for today's Christians to re-create pagan-modelled phallic initiation
rites to celebrate personal milestones. In an appendix summarizing the book's
argument Hicks lists some of these personal spiritual breakthroughs: the first
time for "wet dreams"; appearance of "pubic hair"; "masturbation";
and "intercourse." Hicks intersperses this poison with homilies
about staying faithful to your wife.
Promise Keepers spokesman Pete Richardson defended Masculine
Journey in an April 7, 1995 letter replying to questions from Al Dager
of Media Spotlight:
Question (Dager): "Dr. Hicks has been quoted as saying that men
should worship Jesus with their phallus. Isn't this a blasphemous statement?
Why should someone associate Jesus with sexuality?"
Answer (Richardson): "This raises two issues. First, the nature of
worship, and second the issue of associating Jesus with sexuality. 'The
idea of worshipping
Jesus with one's sexuality flows out of Dr. Hicks' understanding of the
nature of the book of Leviticus...."
Richardson elsewhere describes the book as a "biblically centered,
frank, and honest account of a man's journey with God."
Origins of the Promise Keepers
Whose project is this? The operatives who make up the PK leadership
were developed in several phases The first was in the post-World War II years,
when British-allied banker Averell Harriman directed the U.S. military and
intelligence reorganization, along with John Foster Dulles, globalist religious
leader and secretary of state, and his brother Allen Dulles, Director of Central
Intelligence. The last preparatory phase involved the military/mercenary covert
operations under George Bush as Vice President and President. (George's father,
Prescott Bush, was partner of HArriman; the Dulles brothers were their lawyers.)
David du Plessis, an agent for the Anglo-Dutch monarchies and for their
turncoat American intelligence allies, supervised Pentecostalism's "charismatic
renewal," with agencies such as the Full Gospel Businessmen's Fellowship
and the Far East Broadcasting Co. The same intelligence apparatus spun out
Bill Bright's Campus Crusade for Christ in 1951, and Pat Robertson's Christian
Broadcasting Network in the 1960s (see EIR, Aug. 22. 1997). Bill Bright, heavily
funded by billionaire misanthropy Nelson Bunker Hunt, and commanding 13,000
paid staff and 100,000 global volunteers for his Campus Crusade, now sponsors
Promise Keepers. Pat Robertson fervently pushes PK on his
700 Club television show.
Coach Bill McCartaey launched Promise Keepers after being recruited into
the Vineyard Christian Fellowship, a depraved "Third Wave Pentecostal"
venture. Vineyard's leader, former rock musician John Wimber, is one of the
operatives produced by the old du Plessis-Dulles machine, through Fuller Theological
Seminary in Pasadena, California Vineyard set up churches notorious for their
barking, shrieking, and wretching worshippers at Toronto Airport, and in Pensacola,Florida
Steven Strang, publisher of the Promise Keepers' glossy magazine, New
Man, also puts out Charisma, organ of the Third Wave and herald
of every British intelligence project even faintly related to religion, "Christian"
Penetration of the military
Let us now observe the efforts of this gang to penetrate the U.S.
military, aided by the Bush machine, already in place.
In February 1996, a Promise Keepers' gathering of thousands of clergymen
in Atlanta Georgia featured a special meeting for recruiting military chaplains.
Air Force Gen. Richard Abel (ret.). who manages Bill Bright's military penetration
ministry, addressed this meeting,as did Lt Col. Chuck Stecker (ret.), a 23-year
Army Special Forces veteran who now manages the Promise Keepers organization
in Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana,
Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee.
Following the chaplains' meeting, a Promise Keepers rally was held for hundreds
of soldiers on the Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Army base, home of the Special
Forces units. That rally was led by Col. Jim Pack (ret). a psychological warfare
specialist who now manages the Promise Keepers operations in Texas.
Colonel Pack spent 25 years in Army Special Forces. This is the U.S. service
force deeply infected with British imperial philosophy, in the tradition of
T.E. Lawrence ("of Arabia"),Orde Wingate, and Denis Sefton Delmer,
the fascist British intelligence black arts practitioner who lectured at Fort
Bragg in 1962. Special Forces veterans, and Air Force kooks of the Robert
Hicks variety, are heavily represented among the leaders and agents provocateurs
in the militia and separatist movements. Homoerotic specialist Hicks, we note,
also trains military chaplains at Maxwell Air Force Base.
In a 1995 interview (quoted in June 1995 in The Heritage, a Protestant newsletter)
Colonel Pack defended the Promise Keepers' privacy-stripping psychological
techniques  derived from Hicks' book, and explained, "There are probably
men out them that probably need almost an electrical jump start to get their
engines going before they're willing to confront anything." Colonel Pack
referred to the "People Bingo" quiz specified in the study guide
to Masculine Journey. The small group leader asks each man to reveal which
of the following apply to him: "Is wearing boxer shorts or bikini briefs";
"Has been arrested at least once"; "Has made most of his funeral
arrangements"; "is going through a mid-life crisis"; "Has
had circumcision, vasectomy, or prostate operation"; "was neglected
or abused by father."
In the build-up to the 1997 Promise Keepers Washington rally, inquiring
journalists interacted with national capital region PK manager Mike McDaniel.
He could be counted on to prevent embarrassment to the project. McDaniel was
formerly executive director of the American Defense Institute, a right-wing
military lobbying group close to the Heritage Foundation. ADI was founded
by McDaniel's father, Eugene "Red" McDaniel, the Navy and Marines
liaison to Congress. The McDaniels are decent but limited individuals, who
an being used by the cultists.
 Editor: Stave Van Nattan-- Balaam's Ass Speaks-- In Central California,
in 1997, local PK leaders called a meeting of the faithful PKers. About 200
men came out. They were locked in a room with nothing but chairs and a telephone
at the front. The men, who had not been talked to about any illicit affairs
in their lives, were at once told that they all were unfaithful to their wives.
They were ten ORDERED , one by one, to come to the phone and call their "girl
friends." They, before the room of fellow PKers, then called various
girls, and they confessed various sins to them specifically. There IS a communist
cell-group type psycho-manipulative coercive aspect to PK of the most sinister
quality. These men can now be threatened with exposure to their wives if they
ever defect from PK. You see, the men were ALL told not to EVER tell their
wives of their illicit affairs. Our informant was in the room, and he refused
to use the phone.
Preparing for the big Washington event, Promise Keepers stepped up its outreach
to African-Americans, using a growing pool of proto-facists and military specialists.
Joining the PK board in 1996 was Lt. Gen. Alonzo E Short Jr. (ret), an African-American
Pentecostal. who was Commanding General of the U.S. Army Information Systems
Command, an intelligence-gathering service. During 1990, General Short was
commander of Fort Huachuca, Arizona, the training center for U.S. military
Wellington Boone is an African-American Promise Keepers cult guide, frequent
PK speaker, and editorial board member of New Man. He wrote in Charisma this
"We are called to be 'worms.'...A worm never protests. . . .Can you
say, for Christ 'I am a worm and am no man'?... If we allow God ... to work
into us the idea of 'worm-training,' it would be revolutionary. We would gain
a worm's eye view of what God wants.... When we really meet Jesus and allow
ourselves to be crushed as we model [sic] His example, the impact will rock
Lawrence Reed, PK regional manager for all the states from West Virginia
to Maine, was formerly the financial manager for "Worm" Boone's
personal ministries enterprise.
Boone is also a leader of the Coalition on Revival, a Christian Reconstructionist
grouping calling for abolition of public schools, capital punishment for violations
of the Bible, and an outright theocracy. Frequent PK African-American speakers
Joseph Garlington of Pittsburgh (an ally of Richard Mellon Scalfe), and John
Perkins of Pasadena, California (a board member of New Man), are both core
leaders of the fascist Coalition on Revival.
Let the foregoing facts, then, give warning:
Before your husband, brother, or son is herded into a mass "religious"
rally, or submits to personal questioning by a PK trainer, you and he must
go beyond "sincerity of feelings," and beyond blind disappointment
over the collapse of our society-lest you foolishly contribute to that collapse.

This post reminded me of something that I always thought was strange. Years
ago I bought a deck of Angel cards complete with beautiful angel photos and
descriptions of each angel's purpose. I don't have the cards here with me
so I can't quote exactly but . . . the card of sexuality (Ariel I believe)
had a write up that seemed balanced until it said something to the effect
of "masterbate while thinking of your angels" to have a communion
of sorts with them. I thought that was very odd.
I for one am still trying to break free from the brainwashing (and possible
psychic attack) which keeps me from enjoying sex without there being a kinky
component involved. I've been abstaining until things are sorted out, to my
