New information further exposes the producers of the KONY 2012 video

Today, Invisible Children released its much-anticipated sequel to its KONY 2012 video. But exclusive audio obtained by Truth Wins Out (TWO) reveals that Invisible Children may have a hidden agenda that is more ideological than idealistic.   

In audio TWO discovered from a 2005 Christian conference in San Antonio, Invisible Children’s co-founder Jason Russell called his organization a “Trojan Horse” designed to infiltrate secular institutions and surreptitiously promote his group’s version of Christian fundamentalism. The audiotape reveals that that his organization is particularly focused on targeting youth in public schools. According to Russell’s remarks (:44):

Coming in January we are trying to hit as many high schools, churches, and colleges as possible with this movie. We are able to be the Trojan Horse in a sense, going into a secular realm and saying, guess what life is about orphans, and it’s about the widow. It’s about the oppressed. That’s God’s heart. And to sit in a public high school and tell them about that has been life-changing. Because they get so excited. And it’s not driven by guilt, it’s driven by an adventure and the adventure is God’s.”

The audio vividly reveals Invisible Children’s invisible agenda. This group is not simply about exposing LRA leader Joseph Kony, but engaging in stealth evangelism. Invisible Children sold themselves as romantic idealists, but the evidence suggests that they are more like fundamentalist ideologues.”

Invisible Children first raised alarms after researcher Bruce Wilson showed the group was funded by the National Christian Foundation, a fundamentalist outfit that finances extremist right wing organizations and anti-gay groups. Wilson also discovered that Invisible Children was intimately linked to The Family, the secretive and powerful American fundamentalist group widely considered responsible for Uganda’s draconian “Kill the Gays Bill.” Forbes reported yesterday that conservative strongholds such as Oklahoma City and Alabama were surprisingly the driving force behind making the KONY2012 video go viral.

People across the globe need to realize that there is a huge invisible network of wealthy and powerful fundamentalist organizations. They know that they can’t win your heart and they certainly can’t persuade your rational mind to support their medieval, intolerant ways. So, they use chicanery in an attempt to trick you into supporting their issues. And, once they have you sucked in, they will introduce you to their real and nefarious motives.

Such dishonest organizations are much more dangerous than the traditional Religious Right groups we are used to dealing with, since they conceal their dangerous ideology.
