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

"[T]here exists in the economy and course of nature, an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness; between duty and advantage; between the genuine maxims of an honest and magnanimous policy, and the solid rewards of public prosperity and felicity." —George Washington, 1789

American Minute

American Minute for February 14th

In the 3rd century, the Roman Empire was being invaded by Goths. At the same time, the Plague of Cyprian, probably smallpox, broke out killing at its height 5,000 people a day. So many died that the Roman army was depleted of soldiers. Needing more soldiers to fight the invading Goths, and believing that men fought better if they were not married, Emperor Claudius II banned traditional marriage in the military. Emperor Claudius II quelled internal rivalries resulting from the previous Emperor Gallienus' assassination by having the Roman Senate deify Emperor Gallienus to be worshiped with the other Roman gods. Citizens were forced to worship the Roman gods by placing a pinch of incense on the fire before their statues. Those who refused worship of the Roman gods were considered "unpatriotic" enemies of the state and killed. Emperor Decian's persecution specifically targeted Christians with legislation forcing them to deny their consciences or die. During the first three centuries of Christianity, there were ten major persecutions in which the government threw Christians to the lions, boiled them alive, had their tongues cut out, and worse. Christian writings, scriptures and historical records were destroyed. Because so many records were destroyed, details of Saint Valentine's life are scant. What little is know was passed down and finally printed in the year 1260 in Legenda Sanctorum by Jacobus de Voragine, and in the Nuremberg Chronicle, 1493. Saint Valentine was either a priest in Rome or a bishop in Terni, central Italy. He risked the Emperor's wrath by standing up for traditional marriage, secretly marrying soldiers to their young brides. When Emperor Claudius demanded that Christians deny their consciences and worship pagan idols, Saint Valentine refused. Saint Valentine was arrested, dragged before the Prefect of Rome, and condemned him to die. While awaiting execution, his jailer, Asterius, asked Saint Valentine to pray for his blind daughter. When she miraculously regained her sight, the jailer converted and was baptized, along with many others. Right before his execution, Saint Valentine wrote a note to the jailer's daughter, signing it, "from your Valentine." Saint Valentine was beaten with clubs and stones, and when that failed to kill him, he was beheaded outside the Flaminian Gate on FEBRUARY 14, 269AD. In 496 AD, Pope Gelasius designated FEBRUARY 14th as "Saint Valentine's Day." In the High Middle Ages, Geoffrey Chaucer, called the father of English literature, wrote Parliament of Foules (c.1393) that birds chose their mates in mid-February: "For this was Saint Valentine's day, when every bird of every kind that men can imagine comes to this place to choose his mate." After Chaucer, literature began associating Saint Valentine's day with courtly love. This eventually developed into the 18th-century English traditions of presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending Valentine greeting cards. People often sign Valentine cards with X's and O's. The Greek name for Christ, Χριστό, begins with the letter "X" which in Greek is called "Chi." "X" became a common abbreviation for the name Christ. This is why Christ-mas is abbreviated as X-mas. In Medieval times, the "X" was called the Christ's Cross, or "Criss-Cross." The "Criss-Cross Row" was the way colonial school children learned the alphabet, where they would start at the X and say "May Christ's Cross grant me speed (success)" and then proceed to recite the 26 letters. It reminded students that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom" "Mortals ne'er shall know More than contained of old the Chris'-cross row." The Christ's Cross was a form of a written oath. Similar to the ancient practice of swearing upon a Bible, saying "so help me God," then kissing the Bible, people would sign a document with or next to the Christ's Cross to swear before God they would keep the agreement, then kiss it to show sincerity. This practice has come down to us as "sign at the X", or saying "I swear, cross my heart." This is the origin of signing a Valentines' card with an "X" to express a pledge before God to be faithful, and an "O" to seal the pledge with a kiss of sincerity. History is intertwined with Valentines references: Frederick Douglass was born a slave and separated from his mother as a child. All he remembers is her calling him, 'my little valentine." Theodore Roosevelt's wife and mother died on Valentine's Day in 1884. Depressed, he dropped out of New York politics, left his infant daughter with a relative, and went off to ranch in the Dakotas. The St. Valentine's Day Massacre occurred in 1929 during the Prohibition era. Al Capone's Chicago mob murdered seven members of Bugs Moran's Irish gang. Accompanying Al Capone's hitman Frank Nitti as he terrorized neighborhoods was the young Saul Alinsky, who later adapted this technique into the political tactic of community organizing. Since the Roman persecutions, Christianity has become the most persecuted faith in the world, with over 300 being martyred each day, or one every five minutes, predominantly in Muslim countries. Saint Valentine's heroic, loving example still inspires believers to follow the scripture: "Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them that despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven."
