ISLAMOPHOBIC INDIVIDUALS: Rick Joyner

Rick Joyner

Joyner believes that the Quran “enslaves”’ Muslims which is why "we have more slaves in the world today than before the Civil War here in America.”

Joyner is the president of the Oak Initiative. He is also the founder/director of Morningstar Ministries and the founder/director of Heritage National Ministries. He has authored more than forty books.

His book, The Harvest, lays out some of his views on Islam:

“Islamic terrorists will permeate the West with teams that target Christian organizations and leaders. This is in preparation for an Islamic assault upon the entire world. They will compile computer data on every Christian leader who has any kind of extra-local influence (i.e. newsletters, television or radio outreach). Their main target for attacks will be upon denominations and institutions with political influence. They will seldom interfere with the actual harvest of the true church. Ultimately Islam will become the greatest threat to peace, world order and freedom.”

Joyner advances the conspiracy theory that President Obama is a Muslim, saying “No doubt President Obama is acting more like a Muslim, and doing far more to promote Islam, while at the same time demonstrating disdain or hostility toward Christians and Christianity. The fruit of his actions bears strong evidence that Obama is indeed a Muslim, or at the very least has far more affinity for Islam than Christianity.”

Joyner attempts to paint the Muslim community in Michigan as a threat, saying the following:

“One of the things Detroit has become known for in our nation is the largest Muslim community in our nation, and Dearborn, it’s growing. Many have said there actually is an attempt to make Michigan our first Muslim state…. You cannot understand our modern world today without understanding Islam, and the Lord called them hypocrites who did not know the Signs of the Times. We need to know and understand this issue, we have to. And Islam is in our face, everywhere we return. And here, in America, this is the one place where it is most in our face, right now.”

Joyner believes that the Quran “enslaves”’ Muslims which is why “we have more slaves in the world today than before the Civil War here in America.”
