By the 1950's every major denomination had anti-communist educational programs and America could make war against communists in the Name of God. American politicians would send our children to war to fight the new Satan as they did in Korea, because we are a godly nation and a blessed nation.

The material for this was drawn from the propaganda of the ABN emigre groups, specifically the UCCA. By drawing these parallels, the anti-American emigre groups redefined what it meant to be a 'good' American citizen and a good American Christian. For Christian leaders and politicians hoping to get elected, where you stood with the ABN(UCCA) anti-communist policy became the litmus test of your salvation and citizenship.

The groups combined political and ecumenical rhetoric to the point of creating an overgrown right-wing perversion of Christianity. The National Association for Evangelicals, which carried over ten million members in the 1950s, consistently tied its message of salvation to strong denunciations of the Red Menace, emphasizing the Christian duty to "safeguard free enterprise from perversion.

Today, throughout the Evangelical Christian community, this translates as 'liberals and democrats cannot be Christians'.

From the late 1950's onward, to get into national politics support for the ABN's anti-communist doctrine of Annihilation was indispensable for both the Democrats and Republicans.

Conservative theologians such as Graham and Hargis stressed the moral evils of Communism. Every conflict was a battle between good and evil, between the Godly and the damned. "Either Communism must die, or Christianity must die," wrote Reverend Graham in 1954, "because it is actually a battle between Christ and the anti-Christ" (Satan's Religion, ibid)

Religious and Political Crimes Against Our Humanity

The shoddy political moralizing and heretical theology used to make this fight happen directly parallels Bandera's Greek Catholic and Ukrainian Orthodox beliefs. Both religious models were developed under Ukrainian Nationalism to make heroes and martyrs of genocidal people and armies. Bandera nationalism and his religious Nationalism are Chauvinistic in the extreme sense of the word. If you are not ultra-nationalist Ukrainian, it is a religious duty and blessing from their god to mutilate you as they kill you . With this almost a sacrament, if one of the faithful draws back from it they are branded a heretic or a coward.

On Ukrainian news on September 11, 2014, a priest gave a speech calling for the killing of scores of Novo Russiya people for every good Ukrainian that died attacking Donbass. Bandera today is celebrated in America and Canada as a sinless leader or p rovidnyk, a figure true to religion and nation. Celebrating Fascism and War Criminality in Edmonton: The Political Myth and Cult of Stepan Bandera in Multicultural Canada (Grzegorz Rossoliński-Liebe (Berlin).

During the cold war this chauvinistic anti-communist-Christian sentiment was introduced into the military to develop fearless, ruthless soldiers that were fighting God's battles for the USA. This was done through Stetsko's China Lobby, through the religious leadership, congress, and large connections in the military. The ABN(OUNb) were the US and EU sources for military intelligence. Their relationship to NATO is almost as old as the organization itself.

The ABN vision for a post-Soviet Europe was the antithesis of the Intermarium proposal; it was based on violent revolution and national self-determination instead of popular change and federalism.

The ascendancy of the ABN also coincided with its increased dependence on foreign financing. Financed first by the British via Vatican channels in 1948, then by the CIA, the ABN became beholden to intelligence agencies rather than its constituencies.

The ABN program sought not just to end Soviet domination in east central Europe but also to shatter the Russian Federation into dozens of mini-states based on extreme national self-determination. (Madison, Wilson, and East Central European Federalism: A Dissertation submitted to The Division of Research and Advanced Studies Of the University of Cincinnati in partial fulfillment Ph.D requirements of the Department of Political Science in the College of Arts and Sciences, 2006 by Jonathan H. Levy.)

Throughout the 50s and 60's they worked to bring the US itself to a form of nationalism. This was the only way they could accomplish their goals. Ultimately they knew that if they were going to shatter Russia, the United States military would have to carry the load.
