An update on the cancellation of an Exposing Sharia event – via Jihad Watch – Minnesota: Christian center fires man for helping stage “Exposin...

I just received this email from one of the organizers, explaining what happened next. Please contact the Ironwood Springs Christian Ranch and politely and courteously register disapproval of their Sharia compliance and persecution of Gary Froiland for calling attention to unwelcome and unpopular truths.

I wrote to Bob Bardwell and Tracy Bashore and asked them these questions:

  1. Can you confirm that Gary Froiland was a Board member of Ironwood Springs Christian Ranch?
  2. Can you confirm that he was fired for his role in the “Exposing Sharia” event?
  3. Do you believe that criticism of jihad terror and the oppression that is justified under Islamic law (Sharia) ought to be off-limits? If so, do you believe the same thing about criticism of Christianity? If not, why did you consider it necessary to fire Mr. Froiland?

Bardwell did not answer. Bashore confirmed that Gary Froiland had been on the Ironwood Springs Board but declined comment on anything else. Here is the email I received from Gary Froiland:

Thank you for your article sharing the dilemma about our event in Rochester, Minnesota to have Usama Dakdok speak. I am Gary Froiland, one of the guys helping with this event, and I am the one who designed the poster.

After a pastor who promised us his church backed out the night before the event to have Usama Dakdok speak this past spring in Rochester, we planned to attempt it again in the fall with the American Legion. That should be a patriotic place to have an educational speaker explain why Sharia is not compatible with our constitution. But they too backed out of the contract and gave us our money back after they received pressure from the Sheriff’s department. So we tried the Stewartville Sportsman’s Club.

That’s where your article picked up. We had just covered the town of Stewartville putting door hanging sleeves on nearly every house in town, containing the brochure “Islam in a Nutshell, Peaceful or Violent?” which includes the “Growth of Islam” chart by Bill Warner (Center for the Study of Political Islam). That’s when the Rochester Post Bulletin discovered the door hangings, and the Stewartville Sportsman Club backed out of their contract. Our team met with their board, but without convincing them to let us use their facility.

But we were not about to give up. Next I took my turn to rent a facility. The Cascade Town Hall just north of Rochester was suggested. I rented it as a “Pre-Halloween Family Event”, and added that I would be playing music. (you can type in Gary Froiland in YouTube and see some of my One-Man-Band videos). So we were able to rent the facility. We emailed people three hours before the event to give them the location, hoping that would keep protesters away. About 80 people came!

Late afternoon before the event, after Usama had arrived, he called the Rochester Post Bulletin and invited them to interview him. They jumped at that opportunity for a good story, but didn’t stay long enough to hear the heart of the message, but interviewed him, took some pictures and left. That was Sunday night, October 29th.

The next day the article came out with the front page news. Overall, it was a quite honest article. My name, Gary Froiland, is mentioned in the article, since I was the one who had rented the hall. They made it sound like I deceived them when renting, because I never mentioned we’d have a speaker, but that it was a “Pre-Halloween Family Event (the paper called it a “party”). The event was to start at 6 pm, and those invited were told that I would play music at 5:30 pm for those who came early. That I did, and then closed my half hour by leading everyone in the pledge of allegiance, and had a prayer. Then Usama did his nearly 3-hour presentation.

Now the story continues: Monday the article came out in the Post Bulletin, and my boss read it. My name was in the article, and when I got to work the next morning (at Ironwood Springs Christian Ranch, www.ironwoodsprings.com), the boss (Tracy Bashore) met me first thing and fired me for my involvement in an exposing Islam event. So I was out of a job because of our attempt at Freedom of Speech.

I was on the board of that Christian Ranch for 20 years, and the last four years have been a full-time employee. A job opening came up at Ironwood and they hired me for that position in June of 2013. As an employee, I cannot be a board member, so I went off the board at that time. So since June of 2013 I have worked full time at Ironwood.

Bob Bardwell (bob@ironwoodsprings.com) had founded the Ranch in 1976, and even though he’s very involved every day there, he gave the job of Director to Tracy Bashore (tracy@ironwoodsprings.com). It was Tracy and other liberal employees at the Ranch who had a problem with my involvement with exposing Islam, and now that I was more public with it, he made sure it cost me my job. So I guess I don’t have any freedom of speech either.

A week before that, it was my turn to lead in devotions at the Ironwood Staff meeting (we have one on Tuesday mornings and Friday mornings). I had my devotions on Ephesians 6:12 and focused my talk and PowerPoint on Islam and how many of our brothers and sisters are being beheaded for their faith, and some of them praying “Oh Lord, let us be shot”, because they are awaiting execution by beheading, and are praying to die by gunshot instead. The devotions exposed Islam for those on staff who were ignorant. However, there are several liberals working there, and they were very vocal after my devotions about my “Hate” speech.

Tracy related how the Ranch has a good reputation in the community and some Muslims visit the Ranch from time to time, and he doesn’t want to insult them. So with my controversial devotions, and then a week later, my name in the paper having helped make the Usama Dakdok event happen, that was the last straw and cost me my job.

I thought you might be interested in hearing “The Rest of the Story”, so there you have it. I certainly lost my freedom of speech besides losing my job, but I would do it again. My desire is to be a patriot, and cleanse the path that our children will take from evil that lurks. If you want to talk personally to Bob Bardwell or Tracy Bashore, I included their emails above, and the main office phone number of Ironwood Springs Christian Ranch is 507-533-4315.

ALERT ALERT!!

BREAKING: White House Makes ANOTHER Move
Supporting Roy Moore … Liberals In PANIC !!

(TeaParty.org) – While the lamestream media has criticized President Donald Trump for his silence on the accusations surrounding Republican candidate Roy Moore, and also claimed that his silence is proof of his disapproval of the senatorial hopeful, insiders in the White House issued a second statement confirming their support.

Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Mick Mulvaney on Monday affirmed that the Trump administration’s stance on the issue is that Alabama voters should cast their vote for Judge Moore despite the allegations that he performed sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old in his 30s, the Hill reports.

“I don’t think it’s making any news to think that a Republican administration is going to want someone in the Senate who is going to vote for a Republican agenda and if they elect a Democrat to that office that’s not going to happen,” Mulvaney said during a segment of Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria.”

Previous support for Moore came from the White House when aide Kellyanne Conway told Alabama voters not to vote for the fake “conservative” Democrat Doug Jones, claiming a vote for him “will be a vote against tax cuts” on “Fox & Friends.” She added that the Democrat, despite his self-styled label, is “weak on crime, weak on borders,” all but implying that they should choose Moore instead.

Even the Crooked News Network is waking up and realizing that Trump did not, in fact, fall for their smear campaign against Moore:

“By refusing to intervene ahead of Alabama’s December 12 special election, Trump is rejecting Senate Republican leaders’ view that a Moore victory would bring disastrous consequences for the GOP’s brand and needs to be stopped at all costs.”

Initially when asked, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders issued a statement that said the administration was holding back any judgement or endorsement, and trusted the people of Alabama to decide on the allegations facing Moore. But it’s become clear – and a relief to Trump-supporters in the state – that the president is going to welcome and support one of the only senators who will actually back his agenda.

Marc Short, legislative director, caving in to the pressure of badgering liberal reporters, suggested that Trump wasn’t campaigning for Moore because of doubts surrounding the candidate’s innocence.

“If he did not believe that the women’s accusations were credible he would be down campaigning for Roy Moore. He has not done that,” Short said. Clearly, Short had no idea what he was talking about at the time.

While the president has yet to officially endorse Moore, during a briefing with reporters on Monday, Sanders issued a new statement that resonated with tones of approval for the Alabama Republican, reports CNBC.

“The president wants people in the House and Senate who support his agenda,” Sanders said. Since there are absolutely no other candidates in the race who support the president’s agenda, this is obviously an endorsement for Moore. Trump wants people in his government who are true Republicans, not Democrats or RINOs, no matter what nasty rumors liberal slimeballs spread about them.
