Portland mob lights up Bible, U.S. flag

Bible with American flag 1The rioters in Portland, determined for weeks to burn a federal building to the ground, are now tossing Bibles in the bonfire.

Anarchist rioters in Democrat-run cities around the country have been attacking symbols of America's past, such as historic statues, and the nightly protests in Portland have devolved into Bible burning.

Video recorded August 1 in Portland shows masked protesters setting fire to a Bible and an American flag, perhaps the two greatest symbols of Western civilization, as phone cameras recorded the scene.

“This is who they are,” U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz remarked via Twitter.

Dr. Richard Land of Southern Evangelical Seminary tells OneNewsNow the goal is to turn the country into a fascist, totalitarian state.

“The radical cultural Marxists in our society -- and there are a lot of them -- have hijacked the Black Lives Matter movement,” he warns, “and are using it as a stalking horse to fundamentally change American society.”

KOIN, a CBS affiliate in Portland, reported that members of Moms United for Black Lives Matter later doused the flames with bottled water to protest the action.

Land says America’s leaders and its citizens must pick a side and that begins, he says, with choosing a worldview to follow.

“What we have here now is a choice between a spirit of rebellion, of burning pig's heads and burning Bibles, and traditional American belief of the rule of law, free expression and liberty,” he says.
