Samuel Rodriguez, who joined the International Coalition of Apostles in 2009, was a regular contributor to the Washington Post On Faith column from 2007 to 2010, publishing 49 articles. He often claimed support of religious pluralism. But Rodriguez was simultaneously a leader in a movement that literally demonizes other religions as well as other sectors of Christianity. He is vice president of the Oak Initiative, a religio-political entity which produced a video in 2010 claiming that the nation is in the grips of a Marxist insurgency. The Oak Initiative is currently working with its affiliate Transformation Michigan to prepare for The Call Detroit on 11/11/11, promoted as a massive spiritual warfare effort against Islam. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. This is an excellent example of why we need to know about the New Apostolic Reformation. We did not gain any insight from Lisa Miller, also writing for On Faith, when she described the New Apostolic Reformation as a "previously unknown group" and Dominionism as the "paranoid mot du jour."
