Michael Voris’ refusal to criticize the Pope – for any reason – is based on unsound biblical interpretation.

VorisAccording to Michael Voris and Church Militant.TV:

A very poignant example of how we should treat the Holy Father is found in Genesis 9:18-27, particularly 21-23:

18 And the sons of Noe (Noah) who came out of the ark, were Sem, Cham, and Japheth: and Cham is the father of Chanaan.
19 These three are the sons of Noe (Noah): and from these was all mankind spread over the whole earth.
20 And Noe, a husbandman, began to till the ground, and planted a vineyard,
21 And drinking of the vine was made drunk, and was uncovered in his tent.
22 Which when Cham the father of Chanaan had seen, to wit, that his father’s nakedness was uncovered, he told it to his two brethren without.
23 But Sem and Japheth put a cloak upon their shoulders, and going backward covered the nakedness of their father: and their faces were turned away, and they saw not their father’s nakedness.
24 And Noe (Noah)  awakening from the wine, when he had learned what his younger son had done to him,
25 He said: Cursed be Chanaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
26 And he said: Blessed be the Lord God of Sem; be Chanaan his servant.
27 May God enlarge Japheth, and may he dwell in the tents of Sem; and Chanaan be his servant.

A strong case can be made that “ecclesiastical porn” sites and publications, and those who write for them, are walking in the footsteps of Cham by telling others of their father’s nakedness. Scripture gives us the example of Sem and Japheth who “covered the nakedness of their father, “their faces were turned away,” and “they saw not their father’s nakedness.” The sons of Noe knew that their father was naked, but they chose to “cover” it. – END

Here’s the important part:

The “father’s nakedness” spoken of in the above passage was actually Noah’s wifenot Noah, himself.

Keep my laws and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them, I am the Lord. No man shall approach to her that is near of kin to him, to uncover her nakedness. I am the Lord. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother: she is thy mother, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s wife: for it is the nakedness of thy father(Leviticus 18:5-8)

I will leave out the rest of the details, as they have little bearing on this discussion.

The point is: Michael Voris is basing his policy on an incorrect and uninformed interpretation of scripture and he’s holding others up to unjust criticism, based on his mistake.

Michael needs to apologize for his mistake, reformulate his policy, based on the truth, and get on with his otherwise good work.

Here’s the pertinent link to Michael Voris’ February 25, 2014 article

I’m Doug Lawrence, the author if this post. I’m a frequent critic of the Pope’s “nakedness” – and I’m also a Michael Voris “fan”.

  1. It is facile for Voris and his ilk to refrain from criticism of their leader and to criticize others who do not follow their suit. Hitler’s high command did this, then invoked “just following orders” as their defense against war crimes charges. It is the morally easy way out. Don’t think; just do what you’re told and let someone else be responsible for the consequences of your blind following. And never let up narking on your leader’s “enemies”.

  2. I do not get the correlation the Ham’s evil exploitation, of his Drunken Father, Noah, passed out, to his brothers! How does this relate to Wives in Leviticus and eventually the Popes “Nakedness?” Stories link, Hams sonCanaan, to the sexual sin of the Canaanites!
    WHAT???

    I do Get, Michael Voris, and his argument, against Islam!!!!
    John 17:3…We have, One True God…..ONLY!

    • I corresponded this morning with the folks at ChurchMilitant.TV and they are sticking with their story.

      They have a right to their opinion, but the biblical aspect they chose to back it up is very weak.
