Acquire the Fire

Apparently, the “Acquire the Fire” events are concerts and rallies, attended by lots and lots of teens and their families.

Ron Luce, its founder reportedly isn’t universally loved.

But not everyone is on board with Acquire the Fire’s medium and message. While Luce is a warm and charismatic leader, his sermons preach total separation from mainstream American culture, and his vehement nature has been known to get a little out of hand. His message touches many young people, but others say it isn’t a message of peace and love.”

Wonder what would the news would look like if Muslim teens rented a stadium for a concert and rally.  And espoused total separation from mainstream American culture.  Oh, like Islamberg (whose only readily available links are bloggers and “reporters” who allege, apparently without much evidence, that it was founded by terrorists).  At least Cara Ellison’s blog cites “federal authorities”, but the entire corpus of comments against this town seem to relate back to one speculative news report.
