Welcome to

The Black Robe Regiment

Social Network!

"Brethren, we came to this country to practice our religious liberties, and if we don't get involved, we're going to lose them." --John Peter Muhlenberg, 1777

The Black Robe Regiment.....

arose from the pulpits across the colonies during the Revolutionary War. The movement had its beginnings with Reverend Peter Muhlenberg in 1776 concluding his Sunday sermon by declaring, "In the language of the Holy Writ, there was a time for all things, a time to preach and a time to pray, but those times have passed away. There is a time to fight, and that time is now coming!" Muhlenberg then removed his black robe revealing a full military uniform. Marching to the rear of his church he declared, "Who among you is with me?" On that day 300 men from his congregation stood up and joined Muhlenberg in the fight for liberty.

It is in that spirit that we have created this site. The time has come again that our church leaders must stand up and defend the values, freedoms, and liberties that our founding fathers fought and died for.


This forum, and our associated website resource at www.blackrobereg.org, is a place where concerned Christians can network and discuss strategies for engaging the Body of Christ to take action. Our silence over the past decades has equaled consent. We must now stand up and come together and take action. America is engaged in a spiritual battle that has manifested itself in the political realm. We need revival and a return to the Godly foundations upon which our forefathers built our Republic, and start the process of inviting God back into our governmental, judicial, and educational systems. This must begin on the cellular level--first within our own heart, then within our family, within our Church, and finally to all aspects of our worldly lives.

Please use this forum to share with your peers here on ways to educate, motivate, and activate the Christian community. Use the resources of www.blackrobereg.org to educate yourself as to the historical position and duty that the Church must take in these perilous times. This site will only be relevant and useful with your support. If you have ideas or resources please share them with the forum so others might use them to reach out to their brothers and sisters. Please be sure to join your state group and network with others in your local area.

Please invite others to join with us here and grow our network. You can invite others using the +Invite more link under your name in the top left corner, or anywhere you see the word Invite on all of our groups. You may also click on the following link to make it easier for you: +Invite your friends now, CLICK HERE


We must restore the rightful place of God in our worldly existence and acknowledge that our founding fathers fully intended that our Republic be a moral and righteous nation founded in Biblical precepts and adherence first to God's will.

God Bless!

Founders Quote Daily

Founder's Quote Daily

"It is only when the people become ignorant and corrupt ... that they are incapable of exercising the sovereignty. Usurpation is then an easy attainment, and an usurper soon found. The people themselves become the willing instruments of their own debasement and ruin..." —James Monroe (1817)

American Minute

American Minute for April 29th

"Damn the torpedoes! Full speed ahead!" yelled Admiral David Glasgow Farragut, who had lashed himself atop the mainsail to see above the smoke. His fleet of wooden ships, with hulls wrapped in chains, were accompanied by four iron clad monitors as they attacked Fort Morgan in Mobile Bay, August 5, 1864. When one of the iron clad monitors, the TECUMSEH, hit an underwater mine, called a torpedo, it quickly sank and the fleet faltered in confusion. David Glasgow Farragut rallied his sailors and drove them on to capture Mobile, Alabama, the last Confederate stronghold in the Gulf of Mexico. David Glasgow Farragut was the son of Jordi (George) Farragut, who was born in Spain and served as a Spanish merchant captain before joining in the American Revolution. After President Thomas Jefferson made the Louisiana Purchase, George Farragut moved his family to New Orleans where they met David Porter, Sr., another U.S. Navy veteran of the American Revolution. In 1808, when David Porter, Sr., suffered from tuberculosis and sunstroke, George Farragut took him into their home, where his wife, Elizabeth, cared for him. Tragically, David Porter, Sr., died and later that same day George Farragut's wife Elizabeth died of yellow fever. When George Farragut's became unable to provide for his children, David Porter, Sr.'s son, also named David Porter, offered to adopt 8-year-old David Glasgow Farragut. David Porter had fought in the First Muslim Barbary Pirate War, serving on the USS Philadelphia in the Mediterranean. When the ship became stuck on an uncharted sand bar, it was surrounded by Muslim pirates and the crew were taken prisoners, being held from October 31, 1803, to June 3, 1805. David Porter then served as acting captain of the USS Constitution and captain of the USS Enterprise. During the War of 1812, David Porter was captain of the USS Essex, with young David Glasgow Farragut on board as a midshipman. David Porter sailed around Cape Horn to the Pacific where he claimed the The Marquesas Islands for America in 1813. Congress never ratified the claim, thereby allowing France to take control of The Marquesas Islands in 1842 as part of French Polynesia. As the War of 1812 continued, Porter raided British whaling ships in the South Pacific until his USS Essex was captured at the Battle of Valparaiso, Chile. Commodore David Porter later took command of an expedition to suppress piracy in the West Indies, but after an unauthorized raid on Fajardo, Puerto Rico, he was pressured to resign. David Porter served as commander-in-chief of the Mexican Navy, till the United States appointed him Minister to the Barbary States in 1829, and then U.S. Ambassador to the Ottoman Empire. Named for him was: the ship USS Porter; Porter, Indiana; Porter County, Indiana; and Valparaiso, Indiana, named for Commodore Porter's Battle of Valparaiso. David Glasgow Farragut went on to serve aboard the USS Washington, 1817-1818, patrolling the Mediterranean Barbary Muslim Coast. Farragut spent nine months in Tunis as an aid to Navy Chaplain Charles Folsom, who was serving as the U.S. Consul, till a plague forced his departure. In 1825, David Glasgow Farragut served on the USS Brandywine which was escorting Marquis de Lafayette back to France after his extended visit to America. On board was 19-year-old midshipman Matthew Fontaine Maury, who later became renown for charting wind and sea currents. On APRIL 19, 1862, David Glasgow Farragut captured New Orleans, the Confederacy's largest city. Sailing the Mississippi River at night, his ships were difficult to hit with cannon fire as Farragut had covered the hulls with dark mud and tied tree branches to the rigging. David Glasgow Farragut was promoted to be the first U.S. Navy Admiral. He was encouraged to run for President, but declined. In David Glasgow Farragut's honor are: A statue in New York City; A statue in Washington, D.C.; A Washington, D.C. city square and subway stop, Farragut Square; and Farragut, Tennessee. His son, Loyall Farragut, wrote in a book titled The Life and Letters of Admiral David Glasgow Farragut: "He never felt so near his Master as he did when in a storm, knowing that on his skill depended the safety of so many lives." During his last illness, David Glasgow Farragut asked for a clergyman to pray to the Lord, saying: "He must be my pilot now!" Admiral David Glasgow Farragut's adoptive brother was David Dixon Porter (1813-1891), who following him in becoming the second U.S. Navy Admiral. David Dixon Porter helped Ulysses S. Grant during the Civil War in the siege of Vicksburg, Mississippi, 1863, and in the attack on Fort Fisher, North Carolina, 1864-65. David Dixon Porter later served as superintendent of U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis. Admiral David Dixon Porter stated: "When one sees how much has been done for the world by the disciples of Christ and those professing the Christian religion, he must be astonished to find anyone who hesitates to believe in the Divine origin of Jesus and the wonderful works He performed, all of which are so beautifully portrayed by the author of the work under consideration; and no man or woman of real intelligence would hesitate to believe that it is only through Christ that sinners can be saved, unless their vanity is so great that they are capable of saving themselves without an intermediary." Matthew Fontaine Maury (1806-1873), became known as the "Pathfinder of the Seas" for having charted sea and wind currents while serving in the U.S. Navy. Considered the founder of modern hydrography and oceanography, Maury developed the U.S. Naval Observatory's Hydrographic Office, which was often visited by former President John Quincy Adams, who avidly enjoyed astronomy. Matthew Fontaine Maury wrote in his book Physical Geography of the Sea, 1855, which was the first popular textbook on Marine Science: "As our knowledge of nature and her laws has increased, so has our knowledge of many passages of the Bible improved..." "The Bible called the earth 'the round world,' yet for ages it was the most damnable heresy for Christian men to say that the world is round; and, finally, sailors circumnavigated the globe, and proved the Bible to be right, and saved Christian men of science from the stake..." "And as for the general system of circulation which I have been so long endeavoring to describe, the Bible tells it all in a single sentence: 'The wind goeth toward the South and returneth again to his circuits...'" Matthew Fontaine Maury stated: "I will, however...ask pardon for mentioning a rule of conduct which I have adopted in order to make progress with these physical researches which have occupied so much of my time... The rule is, never to forget who is the Author of the great volume which nature spreads out before us, and always to remember that the same Being is the author of the book which revelation holds up to us." Matthew Fontaine Maury is quoted as stating (Stephen Abbott Northrop, A Cloud of Witnesses, 1884; L.W. Munhall, M.A., The Highest Critics vs. The Higher Critics, NY: Fleming H. Revell Co., 1891, p. 56-57), as saying: "I have always found in my scientific studies, that, when I could get the Bible to say anything on the subject it afforded me a firm platform to stand upon, and a round in the ladder by which I could safely ascend." Captain Phinney of the ship Gertrude wrote a letter acknowledging the influence Maury had made on him: "I am free to confess that for many years I commanded a ship and although never insensible to the beauties of nature upon the sea or land, I yet feel that until I took up your work, I had been traversing the ocean blindfolded... I did not know the amazing and beautiful combination of all the works of Him whom you so beautifully term 'the Great First Thought'... You have done me good as a man. You have taught me to look above, around and beneath me and recognise God's hand in every element by which I am surrounded. I am so grateful for this personal benefit." Maury sailed around South America's Cape Horn, writing, "The Navigation of Cape Horn", published in the American Journal of Sciences and the Arts. Maury wrote the Gulf Stream: "If the current of the sea, with this four-mile velocity at the surface, and this hundreds of tons pressure in its depths, were permitted to chafe against its bed, the Atlantic, instead of being two miles deep and 3,000 miles broad, would...have been long ago cut down into a narrow channel that might have been as the same ocean turned up on edge, and measuring two miles broad and 3,000 miles deep. But had it been so cut, the proportion of land and water surface would have been destroyed and the winds, for lack of area to play upon, could not have sucked up from the sea vapours for the rains to form and the face of the earth would have become as a desert without water." Of the ocean, Maury wrote that God set: "bars and doors to stay its proud waves; and who gave the sea His decree that its waters should not pass His command. He laid the foundations of the world so fast they should not be moved forever." Matthew Fontaine Maury joined the Confederacy during the Civil War, where he perfected the "electric torpedo" (naval mine), the likes of which Admiral David Glasgow Farragut faced in the Battle of Mobile Bay. Maury's torpedoes, according the the U.S. Secretary of the Navy in 1865 "cost the Union more vessels than all other causes combined." After the Civil War, Matthew Fontaine Maury served in the Mexican government under Maximilian. He even attempted to build a New Virginia Colony in Mexico. Matthew Fontaine Maury returned to the United States where he accepted the teaching position of Professor of Meteorology at Virginia Military Institute (V.M.I.), also holding the chair of physics. Offered the position of president of several universities, he declined, keeping a rigorous schedule lecturing on science in America and Europe. He served as a pall bearer when Robert E. Lee died. Engraved on Matthew Fontaine Maury's tombstone at the U.S. Naval Academy is the verse which had inspired him from Psalm 8: "Whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas." Named for him are: Maury Hall at the University of Virginia; Maury Hall at the College of William and Mary; Maury Hall at James Madison University; Maury Hall at the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis; USS Maury was the name of several ships; Matthew Fontaine Maury High School is Norfolk, Virginia; Maury Elementary School in Alexandria, Virginia; Lake Maury in Newport News, Virginia; Maury River in Rockbridge County, Virginia; and Maury crater on the Moon. On November 30, 1860, thirteen years before his death, Matthew Fontaine Maury had laid the cornerstone for the University of East Tennessee, stating: "I have been blamed by men of science, both in this country and in England, for quoting the Bible in confirmation of the doctrines of physical geography. The Bible, they say, was not written for scientific purposes, and is therefore of no authority in matters of science. I beg pardon! The Bible is authority for everything it touches. What would you think of the historian who should refuse to consult the historical records of the Bible, because the Bible was not written for the purposes of history? The Bible is true and science is true, and therefore each, if truly read, but proves the truth of the other. The agents in the physical economy of our planet are ministers of Him who made both it and the Bible. The records which He has chosen to make through the agency of these ministers of His upon the crust of the earth are as true as the records which by the hands of His prophets and servants, He has been pleased to make in the Book of Life... They are both true; and when your men of science, with vain and hasty conceit, announce the discovery of disagreement between them, rely upon it, the fault is not with the witness of His records, but with the worm who essays to interpret evidence which he does not understand."
