Obama's Brother Works With Dangerous Church of God Splinter Cult

I was doing a search on Yisrayl Hawkins and the House Yahweh today and discovered this little tidbtit that I had never seen before.  The article is in one of the Church of God's favorite ultraconservative "news" sites...World Net Daily. Bob Thiel and Flurry quote from WND frequently assuming it is a legitimate news source.

NEW YORK – President Obama’s half-brother from Kenya, Abongo Malik Obama, will return Friday to the U.S., not to visit the White House as he has done before, but to begin a partnership with a cult leader in Texas who has been compared to David Koresh and Jim Jones.
Malik will be in Abilene, Texas, to attend the Peaceful Solution Character Education Convention hosted by known polygamist Yisrayl Hawkins, head of a group called the House of Yahweh, reports Arabic-speaking Islam researcher Walid Shoebat.
Hawkin's traces his ties back to the Worldwide Church of God movement under Herbert Armstrong.
Hawkins believes he is personally mentioned in the Bible and has actually rewritten his version of the Bible to include his name and the House of Yahweh in it.  Hawkins also believes that a baby was born in 2007 that will grow up to cause a nuclear ward that will burn the entire earth in a matter of 30 minutes.  Like Bob Thiel and Dave Pack, Hawkins self-appointed himself as God's most important man on earth that will lead the chosen people of God into the kingdom.

In 2008, Hawkins was prosecuted in Baird, Texas, after being charged with performing polygamous weddings and forcing children as young as 11 to work at his 44-acre compound, the the Associated Press reported at the time.
“But this isn’t the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints’ ranch, which authorities raided last month in Eldorado after receiving reports that underage girls were being forced to marry much older men,” the AP noted.
“This is the House of Yahweh: a different, even darker sect that the state has been investigating for years.”
In 2009, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the bigamy charges against Hawkins were dropped in his Callahan County court case, because a Class A misdemeanor bigamy charge had a two-year limitation and the charges dated back to 2005. There also was a resource limitation when the trial judge granted a change in venue from Callahan County to Parker County, Texas.
Hawkins, however, pleaded “no contest” to four counts of child labor violations for which he was assessed a $2,000 fine, 100 hours of community service and 15 months probation for each count.

Malik Obama partners with House of Yahweh
Shoebat pointed out in a report that Malik has described Hawkins’ group as a “partner organization” in a posting titled “Impacting people everywhere for meaningful change” on his Barack H. Obama Foundation website.
Barack H. Obama Foundation website announcement of Hawkins “Peaceful Solution Character Education Incorporated” meeting in Abilene, Texas
press release issued this week by Peaceful Solution Character Education promoted the upcoming meeting.
“Various speakers from around the globe, including Malik Obama, yes, the brother of President Obama, will address a variety of issues. The group says each speaker will provide answers that will solve many of the problems being faced in the home, school, workplace, and society as a whole.”
The press release also quoted Yisrayl Hawkins, as founder of the program, saying: “We will give you answers to solve any problem you can think of. Just show up, and be ready to get your solution.”

I'm embarrassed for Obama. Nobody deserves such a dumb brother.

As seen on Dr. Phil.

Any number of times.

This is the cousin black sheep of the Armstrongists don't want to talk about because, fundamentally, he's cut from the same cloth as the rest of the 'family' (read 'Mafia').

You can do the research, but the FLDS is actually worse. But not by much sometimes.

And as for underage girls being forced to marry older men?

Think 'PCG'.

All of the Cult of Herbert Armstrong Mafia is both sick and crazy, just as their founder idol was.

So house of Yahweh traces it's roots back to the worldwide Church of God? Isn't that the same group that Dr. PHIL did a show about or am I mistaken?

"Bob Thiel and Flurry quote from WND frequently assuming it is a legitimate news source."

It can't be any worse than Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, or the war-mongering 5th column liars at the New York Times.

Russia Today is a lot better than any of them, but even they are hiding a lot of historical fact--won't admit Russia's role in war-mongering and mass murder by rape in WWII. But then the US won't admit what their war-time allies did either, or their own intentional starving to death of POWs. It's a conspiracy of silence. If the USA media calls the Russians on the mass murder by rape then the Russians will call the USA on the mass murder of POWs by starvation. Then people in these countries will wonder if there were any good guys and they won't be so quick to wage war anymore.

There is a conspiracy today.

It's called the Armstrongists covering up British Israelism as the worst science fiction ever.

They even start out the Feast of Tabernacles with the opening sermon declaring how wonderful it is. They know better.

They continue the conspiracy to cover up their failure to produce anything at all of value.

The Sacred Names groups are about as crazy or worse than most COG's. They are so absorbed with about everything physical. New moons, calendars, blowing shofars, and so on.

They are so divided. They have as many variations as COG organizations.
