Hawaii Candidate For Gov., Tied to Witch-Fighting Evangelicals

"If you have any idols in your home, we're gonna burn 'em! If you have any witchcraft items in your home, we're gonna burn 'em!" -- Cindy Jacobs, faculty member, International Transformation Network

It's like something out of the Spanish Inquisition or from the depths of the European Medieval period, mysteriously transported to sunny Hawaii of 2010, at the height of a hotly fought campaign for governor no less. As the Associated Press reported yesterday, on a scandal roiling the Hawaii gubernatorial campaign, Republican candidate for governor James "Duke" Aiona is lashing out at the campaign of his Democratic rival Neal Abercrombie for allegedly promoting a video I've compiled which begins with a clip of Aiona, in July 2008, enthusiastically stating that he was a member of Transformation Hawai'i, which is a local chapter of the International Transformation Network.

3. watch out folks or you might get infected with a Dandruff Demon!

Evangelist Who Thinks Gays Are Possessed By Demons Suggests Obama's worldview May Be "Aberrant"

As a more general point, ACPE is part of the New Apostolic Reformation, a worldwide movement within non-denominational and charismatic churches, and one of its major features is the claim that homosexuals are gay because they're possessed by, well, "gay demons."

This isn't just Bishop Harry Jackson's belief, it's doctrine within the New Apostolic Reformation, whose leaders are arguably in the forefront of anti-gay organizing within Christianity.

And, it doesn't stop there. New Apostolic Doctrine holds that demons are everywhere and cause just about everything bad that happens including natural disasters, wars, plagues, and also physical ailments including headaches, dandruff, and gynecological complaints.

So, obviously, casting out a "headache demon" cures chronic headaches, and so on. This demon-based health care paradigm is being set up, by the NAR, on an international level as an alternative health care system.

4. Two background articles by Bruce Wilson about Duke Aiona and "Transforming Hawaii":
Edited on Fri Oct-22-10 12:20 AM by Raksha
This one is "Transforming Hawaii Part 1," posted on April 17, 2010:

And here's "Tranforming Hawaii Part 2," also posted on April 17,2010:

From Part 1:

"It doesn't matter if the Republican or the Democratic candidate wins the governorship . Either one is already in the kingdom," declared International Transformation Network Founder and CEO Ed Silvoso at the March 4-6 Convergence 2010 conference in Dallas, as Silvoso was announcing the ITN's upcoming 20th International Transformation Network conference, scheduled to be held November 9-14, 2010 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village near Honolulu.

At the ITN's 19th world conference, on November 7, 2009 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, Hawaii's current Republican Lt. Governor James "Duke" Aiona, running in 2010 to be Hawaii's next governor, repeatedly jabbed his finger at the podium, for emphasis, as he told his audience,

"We're one body of Christ, we're one church and we're all here to disciple the nations, here in Hawaii and everywhere else, and I want you all to know that... May God's grace be with the participants of the International Transformation Network Global conference. Aloha, from myself, Lt. Governor Duke Aiona to all of you but in particular to pastor Ed "

At the ITN's 18th world conference, held October 2008 in Mar del Plata, Argentina, Silvoso likened opponents of his movement to rats that would be killed when necessary. Silvoso's movement may well be in the forefront of organizing against gay rights globally.

Inside the US, the International Transformation Network is not overtly eliminationist. But ITN faculty members have endorsed the work of church-based, government-backed death squads in Latin America and, in Africa, the ITN is associated with pending legislation apparently aimed at eliminating or imprisoning an entire segment of Ugandan society.

As goes Uganda, so goes Hawaii?

ITN operatives have played a significant role organizing and inspiring Ugandan legislators who have drafted, cosponsored, and backed the draconian and internationally denounced Anti Homosexuality Bill before Uganda's parliament which would mandate the execution of many HIV positive Ugandans and also require, on pain of three years in prison, that citizens report to the police anyone suspected of being gay. The penalty for being homosexual in Uganda is imprisonment for life.
