Copeland, who pastors New Zion Baptist Church in Rockford, Ill., is a regular contributor to TGC, which we noted was originally founded by fellow pastor and New York Times contributor Tim Keller of Redeemer Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Manhattan. And the article in question, which is chock-full of lies and misrepresentations, is still published at TGC's website without retraction or correction, despite its fake news elements having been brought to the world's attention by numerous independent media outlets over the past month.
At no point in his article did Copeland even bother to suggest that Rittenhouse may have acted in self-defense to protect both himself and others from harm by the Black Lives Matter (BLM) mob that swarmed Kenosha that day. Copeland also failed to scope out the truth about those whom Rittenhouse shot, referring to them simply as "people," and casting him as some kind of racist acting from a privileged position of white supremacy simply due to his fair skin tone.
Besides the defamatory nature of Copeland's words, this so-called man of the cloth completely misconstrued the events that occurred that fateful day, which only fueled the fires of anger and rage that have already resulted in numerous American cities being burned to the ground by violent domestic terrorists. What is worse, Copeland inadvertently heaped scorn upon the lives of the five young boys who were raped by Joseph Rosenbaum, one of the men Rittenhouse shot to death that Copeland erroneously cast as a "victim" in the melee.
It did not take this writer long to pull up Rosenbaum's extensive rap sheet, which reveals him as a sex offender of the worst kind. It also took mere seconds to uncover video evidence showing that Rosenbaum lobbed a Molotov cocktail at Rittenhouse right before Rittenhouse, a trained sharp-shooter, responded by doing what needed to be done – as any good patriot and defender of justice would do.
Also worth noting is the fact that the other two "victims" who were shot by Rittenhouse, Anthony Huber and Gaige Grosskreutz, likewise had extensive criminal records. These were malignant agitators, in other words, not innocent bystanders like Copeland deceptively framed them as in his attempt to condemn Rittenhouse for "t[aking] lives in front of physical and digital witnesses."
While we cannot know Copeland's true motivations in lying about the Rittenhouse encounter, we can at least say with certainty that he is not telling the truth. And since Copeland's article is still published by TGC, this alleged Christian organization is complicit in supporting this slanderous religious leader and his egregiously false message, which distorts the facts while pulling God into the equation as someone who "d[oes] not color-code human dignity and worth."
The fact of the matter is that Rittenhouse successfully removed three dangerous men from America's streets, two of them permanently, after being provoked by them. And at least one of these dangerous men was quite literally a demon in human flesh who stole the dignity and innocence of at least five little boys who were made in God's image, and who did not deserve to be sexually molested by a pedophile.
With that said, we are calling on TGC to either rebuke this Copeland character publicly and remove his article, as well as issue an apology, or else be exposed as just another faux religious organization aiding and abetting criminals and pedophiles who rape little boys to push a political agenda. What is it going to be, TGC?
