LEWISTON — Rev. Douglas and Sonia Taylor will open the doors of their ministry The Jesus Party for an “adult only event.” The Taylors periodically host what has become known as ” The Happy Hour” during the fall and winter months. These functions feature a variety of speakers and films that can be considered highly controversial.

On Sept. 29 beginning at 6 p.m. at the ministry’s headquarters at 291 Bates St., the documentary video that won the $100,000 grand prize at the San Antonio Christian Film Festival, “Agenda: Grinding America Down,” will be shown.

The story behind its production is that back in 1992 a college student named Curtis Bowers snuck into a Communist meeting at the University of California in Berkeley. He listened to the wide-ranging plans of the Communist to take over America from within. Bowers sized them up as unrealistic and impractical, and he decided he didn’t need to worry about their far-out plans.

Fifteen years later, Curtis Bowers was a new member of the Idaho State Legislature and it suddenly hit him how drastically American culture has changed along the lines of the goals he heard laid out in that 1992 Communist meeting. Those goals included infiltrating the media, schools, colleges and even churches with Communist propaganda, plus a plan to use the environmental movement to tie up business with red tape and regulations.

When Bowers wrote a letter to the editor of his local newspaper about his observations, he ignited a firestorm. That spurred Bowers into action, and he spent the next two years reading hundreds of books, articles and speeches about Communist plans and tactics.

The result of his research is the video “Agenda: Grinding America Down.” The documentary starts with a quote from Joseph Stalin: “America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.”

The video explains the origins of Communism, its relationship to Socialism and the so-called “progressive” groups. The video has many interesting interviews with prominent authorities who show the connections between the various Communist, Socialist and progressive organizations, and how they implement their agenda.
