Tulsa Christian Identity Church Tied to Ku Klux Klan Seeks Return to Slavery, Sermon Justifies Whipping Blacks

[To continue our mission of stopping hate at and helping people leave the insanity at, Hate Trackers relies on your donations. Please contribute today HERE

It looks like any of a hundred aging churches in Oklahoma, but this one keeps to itself and requires an invitation to enter. The first requirement to gaining access is you have to be white. Non-whites are forbidden to cross the threshold.

Rose Hill Community Church
This house of worship wants not to be noticed, as each week Ku Klux Klan members, race separatists, and Southern secessionists, gather to be indoctrinated further into white identity ideology.

Northeast Tulsa's Rose Hill Community Church, formerly known as the Rose Hill Covenant Church, is an independent Pentecostal church operating with the added Christian Identity belief that whites are the superior race and the Bible says non-whites must serve them.

That's their interpretation anyway.

Slavery. They want slaves or at least to be separated from non-whites and Jews.

Eurocentric church members want a return to the days of putting non-whites in chains and pound the Bible saying it is clear that God has given the true Israelites - white European men descended from Japheth, the son of Noah - permission to dominate inferior races. Those would be the descendants of Canaan, son of Ham and grandson of Noah. Africans.

We'll get more into a drunk and naked Noah spewing curses and rewards upon his children later, as its the very foundation on which Rose Hill built its church.

Rose Hill is located at 1245 N Canton Ave, Tulsa, OK and uses the phone number 918-836-1554. It is located in northeast Tulsa about three miles from the city's Greenwood District - the site of a KKK-led massacre in 1921.

The Tulsa Race Riot Massacre (or the Greenwood Massacre) of 1921 took place on May 31 and June 1, 1921, when mobs of white residents attacked black residents and businesses of the Greenwood District in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It has been called "the single worst incident of racial violence in American history." Wiki Entry

[We took the liberty to correct Wiki in their use of the term riot. The incident was not a riot; it was a massacre.] 

The HBO series The Watchmen featured that massacre in the opening segment of the first episode.

Nearly a hundred years later, Klansmen and their ilk gather to worship their version of God just those three miles away. Less than a mile from that site, a member of the Klan works for the Tulsa County Court Clerk, who refuses to fire her. And two miles to the east of the Greenwood District white police officers are gunning down unarmed black men, such as in the Terence Crutcher murder.

The head pastor for Rose Hill is a neo-Confederate named Charles Jennings. An associate pastor linked to the Ku Klux Klan named Jason Uzzel has been positioned to take over the whites-only church in the future.

Due to the growing militancy within the Christian Identity and secessionist movements, Hate Trackers feels the church, Jennings, and Uzzel needs to be completely exposed.

What is Christian Identity?
"Christian Identity is a unique anti-Semitic and racist theology that rose to a position of commanding influence on the racist right in the 1980s. "Christian" in name only, the movement's relationship with evangelicals and fundamentalists has generally been hostile due to the latter’s belief that the return of Jews to Israel is essential to the fulfillment of end-time prophecy." - Southern Poverty Law Center
What is White Separatism?
According to the Anti-Defamation League, "White separatism is a form of white supremacy that emphasizes the idea that white people should exist separately from all inferior, non-white races, whether by establishing an all-white community somewhere or removing non-whites from their midst. Some white supremacists also use the phrase because they believe it may be more benignly perceived by others than the term “white supremacist.”

The congregants at Rose Hill have a long list of people to hate, such as Catholics, Jews, non-whites, homosexuals, immigrants, and feminists. To understand how they justify that hatred, one must know where it all originates and how it amounts to a system of cult indoctrination.

Rose Hill gets its belief in white separatism by basing their foundation on the teachings of head pastor Charles A. Jennings, who rationalizes African American slavery with what he calls The Curse of Ham. That same curse is how the South justified their continuation of slavery. Christian Identity is about retaining those beliefs in modern times after most Christians abandoned the interpretation long ago.

Frederick Douglass
In regards to Southern white churches teaching what Christian Identity does now, abolitionist Frederick Douglass had this to say: “Between the Christianity of this land and the Christianity of Christ, I recognize the widest possible difference—so wide that to receive the one as good, pure, and holy, is of necessity to reject the other as bad, corrupt, and wicked. To be the friend of the one is of necessity to be the enemy of the other. I love the pure, peaceable, and impartial Christianity of Christ; I therefore hate the corrupt, slave-holding, women-whipping, cradle-plundering, partial and hypocritical Christianity of this land. Indeed, I can see no reason but the most deceitful one for calling the religion of this land Christianity…”

As pro-slavery polemicists, Jennings and his fellow Christian Identity pastors have scoured the Bible to find verses where slavery is an acceptable practice. They believe it can be a positive method of teaching obedience and convey the false point that slaves were not mistreated by their masters, when they clearly were. It's their belief that slavery is a great method at instilling civilization among the uncivilized inhabitants of Africa.

As an extension of that, Jennings has no problem with feeding his listeners heresy, by fabricating non-existent Bible stories.

With absolutely no authority from the Bible, Jennings just completely made up in the video what he thinks the sin of Ham was. At some point, he sat there wondering what could've gone on and his imagination came up with "Well, if Noah was drunk, his wife would've been in the tent drunk too, so that means Ham came in, stared at his naked daddy, and then raped his intoxicated mother. Ipso facto, rape and incest was the true sin."

The Bible says in Genesis 9:22 "And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without." 

In between "his father, and" Jennings slipped in mother being in the tent drunk and Ham taking advantage of her. 

There's absolutely no Biblical mention of the things Jennings outrageously claims in the segment, which is part of a larger system he teaches that justifies the enslavement, abuse, and dehumanization of non-whites.

Remember that Ham's son Canaan would sire Africans, who would later be brought to the South as slaves.

Rape. Those blacks will rape our precious white women. That's what they do. It all started with Ham.

That's the real message Jennings is feeding the congregants. He's tweaking their long-held beliefs that Africans cannot control their sexual appetites and will assault white women. Many lynchings were conducted over that very same belief. Promiscuous white women in the South would make false claims against black men and get them killed. 

One of the strongest myths in the postbellum South was that slaves did not rape the plantation owners wives and daughters, but post-Civil War it became a serious issue. Therefore in order to control the rape of white women it's better for blacks to be enslaved or kept away from them. 

Enslaved Africans are honorable.
Free Africans are depraved. 

That's the messaging seen frequently throughout Jennings' teachings.

Signs like these were posted in sundown towns
warning blacks to be gone by dark.
It is the same theological interpretation used to bring in Jim Crow, segregation, and sundown laws. One needed to separate the races in order to protect white women. It's where those in Christian Identity find justification for separating the races. All of it is based on the twisted interpretation of eight post-flood verses in Genesis.

Then in the video, Jennings claims, again with the Bible never stating such, that Ham got his mother pregnant, and Canaan was the boy that came from the coupling. Thus, Canaan wasn't Noah's son. He was his grandson. There Jennings doesn't just play fill-in-the-blanks, but directly contradicts the Bible, which would be called a false teaching.

It's an invented theory used to dehumanize the Canaanites as being descended from an act of rape and incest and thus must be punished for it. The white supremacists in Jennings' congregation and viewing him online love such material. It eases their consciences about how they treat those not sharing the same skin color as them. When they enslave blacks, they believe they're carrying out God's will. 

Jennings then jumps ahead in time from Genesis to Leviticus to get credence for his defilement fantasy. It's just a cherry picking of don't look at naked people and don't have incest orders that Jennings took from the future time of Moses and applied to his Oedipus-style invention.

The Rose Hill pastor has convinced himself that the Hebrew decided after a couple of centuries that Ham shouldn't have sexually assaulted and impregnated his drunken mother.

Every bit of it made up.

Pastor Charles A. Jennings of Rose Hill Community Church
Christian Identity goes hand-in-hand with heresy and false teachings. At its core, the theology is about warping the Bible of dark-skinned Middle Easterners to where God's plan was to make white people superior and non-whites inferior.

For his part, unlike most Christian Identity teachings, Jennings believes that being the color black isn't due to the Curse of Ham. Certainly, he believes the Africans are descendants of Ham's rape and incest misdeeds, just that black skin wasn't included. He doesn't go in to how skin color would've come into the mix.

Other videos found on Jennings' YouTube channel have him and others preaching at Rose Hill about the need to separate the races and how slavery is justifiable.

Rose Hill has even invited pastors from other Christian Identity churches to come to Tulsa and teach about the issue of slavery and reduce it as an institution in the South. One such preacher that came to Rose Hill was neo-Confederate John D. Weaver, who served as chaplain for the violent racist group League of the South. In the sermon recorded at the Tulsa church, Weaver hits just about every excuse there is to dismiss slavery as a bad thing. He gleefully discusses it as a holy activity.

You need not watch the full 55-minute sermon, as the first 15 minutes will give you a pretty good idea about Christian Identity's fondness for slavery and the Rose Hill congregation's acceptance of it. Weaver gets even more offensive the further into the sermon you get, so, if you decide to watch this in its entirety, you're going to get outraged.

Trigger warning: The following video from Rose Hill Community Church is extremely racist. There are multiple uses of the N-word. It excuses slavery and the whipping of black people. Please, do not watch it, if the subject is too intense for you to deal with. We present it here as evidence of Rose Hill Community Church's disturbing theology and belief system. The video from November 2017 was orignally posted to YouTube. 

Obviously, a church full of Ku Klux Klan and white separatists loved Weaver's preaching, which did nothing but provide excuses for the South to hold blacks as slaves.

In the video, Weaver justifies the whipping of slaves, as a good and necessary practice. He even goes so far as to say white fathers don't whip someone without reason. Shortly,  afterward he reads a letter laced with the N-word.

These teachings encourage racism and the mistreatment of non-white races. They feel Biblically justified in engaging in hate and domestic terrorism against non-whites. Mostly, they want to enslave them and keep them in their place.

They, also, believe only whites are the true Israelites.

WE BELIEVE that the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Celtic, Scandinavian and related peoples are the only people that fulfill all the prophetic earmarks that identify them with being the literal physical descendants of the ancient people of Old Testament history known as Israelites (Genesis Chapters 48 & 49; Deuteronomy 7:6-8). Being that every Israelite is born in sin, it is therefore necessary for each one to repent in order to receive the gift of salvation. Salvation is by grace and is not a result of works or genetic lineage.

That mission statement is known as Anglo-Celtic and is what the Rose Hill Community Church avers. It claims that white Europeans are the true Israelites and the Jews of today are descended from Ham, as they believe all non-whites to be.  It is the basis for separating the races and teaches that anyone who isn't white is inferior and ungodly. It's found within the Christian Identity churches and is part of the Statement of Faith and Purpose found on the ministry website run by Charles Jennings. 

The basis for their core belief system comes from eight verses of the Bible. It's where Jennings got the idea to make up the story about Ham and Caanan.

20 And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.
23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.
24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.
25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
26 And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
– Genesis 9:20–27King James Version

Those eight verses have been used to justify slavery in the South and demand its return from Christian Identity churches, who feel by not enslaving non-whites they're being disobedient to God's plan.

You might have noticed that despite what Jennings is teaching that the Bible establishes in its mythos that Canaan was already present and on the scene to be cursed by Noah. It certainly wouldn't have taken Noah nine months to sober up.

The Christian Identity interpretation of this passage is Noah placed a curse on Ham's son Canaan and his descendants, which would be the Canaanites, who dwelled in modern day Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan. They were dark skinned and would have to serve Shem and Japheth and their descendants, who, as far as Japheth is concerned, are the ones that ended up in Europe with white skin.

The Drunkenness of Noah by Gaspare Traversi
Ham's transgression was seeing his father naked and during those times seeing another man's genitals was a heavy duty sin.

Thus, enslaving non-whites was and still is a thing for Rose Hill and other Christian Identity churches, due to The Curse of Ham.

In their belief system among Noah's sons, and apparently a grandson if Jennings is to be believed, Shem was associated with the East, Ham with Africa and Japheth with Europe. That works out to the "cursed" Africans coming from Ham committing incest to the good son Japhet, who of course is going to have white descendants.

It's how churches like Rose Hill and preachers like Jennings can convince their white congregants that they aren't being racist or hating others. They're just following God's plans, when they abuse and subjugate non-whites.

It may seem insane, but the same rationale was used over the centuries by Christians, Jews, and Muslims to enslave other people. Most of them ended up rejecting the interpretation over time and in America a Civil War somewhat ended slavery, but those in the Christian Identity movement chose to cling to the old interpretation.

The North may have won the war, but many in the South did not give up their beliefs, when they surrendered their slaves. The Ku Klux Klan maintains a similar belief system and are closely tied to Christian Identity churches. Rose Hill Community Church is one of those churches. 

Besides running Rose Hill Community Church, Pastor Jennings also operates a publishing company called Truth in History. That company is the evangelistic outreach of the non-profit Jennings runs from his home, called Kingdom Treasures Ministries, which has been identified as a neo-Confederate organization by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). It has made the annual hate group list for its distribution of anti-Semitic and white power literature, as well as its Christian Identity teachings.

The SPLC says "Neo-Confederate groups seek to revive many of the racist principles of the antebellum South."

Jennings uses a post office box in Owasso, Oklahoma. However, tax records we've found for his ministry show his true address to be 15865 E 118 St N Collinsville, OK. Current voter records show Jennings as a Republican at the same address.

A background check shows Jennings with a former residence in Harrison, Arkansas where the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan has a compound that we've connected Rose Hill's associate pastor Jason Paul Uzzel to.

A review of the Kingdom's 2015, 2016, and 2017 tax returns show that three people are on the board for the non-profit: Jennings as president, Daniel B. Drewry as vice president, and Jennings' wife Marylee Jennings as secretary treasurer.

Marylee and Charles Jennings
Marylee Gibbs Jennings, age 75, is a native of Laurel, Montana and studied at the Southwestern Assemblies of God University, which is now located in Texas, but has its origins in Enid, Oklahoma where it was known as the Southwestern Bible School.

The Jennings married on June 25, 1966 and have one son named Duane Jennings, who works for the Housing and Student Affairs at the University of Arkansas.

Duane was born in Harrison, Arkansas, where he later graduated.

His addition here is to place his father in Harrison for an extended period of time - at least 18 years.

That becomes more important later in the story. 

Marylee has a Facebook account here. A few of her posts are in support of the Confederate carvings on Stone Mountain, which is considered the birthplace of the modern Ku Klux Klan.

We have not located a Daniel Drewry in Oklahoma. A records search using the middle initial B only brings up a Daniel Bruce Drewry living in Missouri. Although it's likely him, we cannot say it is absolutely him. We obtained a phone number for the man, but the voice messages we left were never returned. The phone number was also connected to his address and businesses - TYBG Pharmaceuticals Inc, TYBG Farm One, and TYBG Farm Two.

Digging deeper, however, we found an obituary where Drewry is noted. That obit is for a man named Maurice Dale Drewry, age 73 of Harrison, Arkansas. The same city where the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan is and where Jennings has resided. Also, another records search confirmed that Daniel Drewry has previously lived in Harrison.

According to voter records associate pastor Jason Uzzel registered as a Republican and living at 2231 S 80 E Ave in Tulsa. Other records show him as previously living in Marietta, Georgia, and married to a Hannah Margaret Riordan Uzzel.

They were married in Greenwood, Arkansas, on November 5, 2016. Both are 39.

Jason and Hannah Uzzel via her Facebook page

On Linkedin it shows Uzzel runs a construction service.

You may've noticed most roads seem to be heading to Harrison, Arkansas. That's because it is Klan central for the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan and their associates.

As we reported last month, the KKK is so entrenched in Harrison that the local newspaper the Harrison Daily Times sells them ad space to attack LGBTQs and promote their own Christian Identity church.

The City of Harrison has a long, sordid history, when it comes to race relations.

PBS Independent Lens documentary noted the following:

"According to historian James Loewen in his book Sundown Towns (New Press, 2005), “In late September of 1905, a white mob stormed the jail, carried several black prisoners outside the town, whipped them and ordered them to leave. The rioters then swept through Harrison’s black neighborhood, tying men to trees and whipping them, burning several homes and warning all African Americans to leave that night. Most fled without any belongings. Three or four wealthy white families sheltered servants who stayed on, but in 1909, another mob tried to lynch a black prisoner. Fearing for their lives, most remaining African Americans left. Harrison remained a ‘sundown town,’ [i.e., a place that threatened, ‘N*****, don’t let the sun go down on you here’] until at least 2002.”

"The violence in Harrison caused black residents in neighboring communities to flee the area as well. In the 1900 Census, the black community in Harrison numbered 115 people in a town of 1,500. Less than ten years later, that community was gone. Today, Harrison is home to just over 12,000 residents, more than 97 percent of them white. Fewer than 40 African Americans live in Boone County, of which Harrison is the county seat, out of a total population of 34,000."

Klan entertainers the Kuklas
Harrison and the Knights Party compound is also frequently visited by Tulsa County Court Clerk employee Bonnie Kukla and her husband.

As we reported in February, Bonnie and Stephen Clinton Kukla are white supremacists and long-time members of the Ku Klux Klan. They travel to various Klan chapters throughout the South preaching, speaking, and entertaining through song.

In the photo to the left, the Kukla's are performing at the anti-Semitic Pastor Dan Gayman's Church of Israel (formerly the Church of Our Christian Heritage). That church is located in Schell City, Missouri.

At least twice this year, we've monitored the Kuklas showing up in Harrison for the Knights Party's Faith & Freedom Conference in April and for a Labor Day event in September. A klan newspaper called The Torch released this month shows them ready to return in April 2020.

Our previous coverage of the Kuklas noted they are both members of the Rose Hill Community Church. 

The Knights Party operates the Christian Revival Center at their compound. It's another Christian Identity Church in the same manner Rose Hill is. 

The Christian Revival Center is located in Boone County Arkansas at 6400 Leadhill Rd near Harrison, Arkansas.

It is only 15 miles from Harrison and about 30 miles from Branson, Missouri.

The Center’s 100-acre campus includes a church, office, cabins and camping area for those attending white nationalist gatherings there.

The Knight's Party business office number is 870-427-3414.

It would be a good time to discuss how violent the movement Rose Hill Community Church is involved in. 

In March 2000 the St. Louis Dispatch reported on the Christian Identity Movement. They linked a number of crimes to them, including murder, robbery, and kidnapping. 

Included in the article was this passage:
At last weekend's "Songs for His People" rally, members worked hard to convey a God-fearing wholesomeness. But on Saturday, the two faces of Christian Identity -- friendliness and fierceness -- revealed themselves.
At noon, 50 children in pigtails, ruffled dresses and little-boy suits stepped onto a stage. In a precious performance, the cute youngsters sang and acted out "Itsy Bitsy Spider," to their parents' delight.
Six hours later, many of the same children sat with their parents as speaker Charles A. Jennings called himself "a strong racist" and said he was pleased that "the quality of our race is in this room."
One audience member who applauded Jennings' speech was Thom Robb -- the Grand Dragon of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, which includes Missouri and is the largest and most active chapter in the United States.
Robb lives in Harrison, Ark., about 30 miles south of Branson. Robb, who dresses in conservative suits, has worked to soften the Klan's cross-burning, robe-wearing image.
Taking a chapter from Robb's public relations strategy is Identity pastor Ted R. Weiland, another speaker at the weekend conference.
Weiland, a regular contributor to "The Jubilee," the Identity movement's newspaper, laced his sermons with humor and anecdotes.
He was mentioned in wire service stories during the 1995 federal building bombing in Oklahoma City because militia members frequented his church in Nebraska. Both bombers, Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, were militia participants. Weiland also has been connected to the Williams brothers through telephone records. Weiland told a reporter that if McVeigh and Nichols had been Identity members: "They'd already be dead. They'd be put to death a lot quicker (by Identity followers) than this government will do it."

After months of investigation, Hate Trackers has been able to identify nearly one hundred members of Pastor Robb's Knights Party. That includes Rose Hill's associate pastor Uzzel and church members Bonnie and Stephen Kukla.

This past weekend we started locating their social media accounts and contacting them letting them know we know they are members of the Ku Klux Klan. 

One of those we contacted was a woman named Jacqulynn Gerrard Davis of Bergman, Arkansas, which is 11 miles from Harrison.

Very bluntly, Davis threatened to have our reporter lynched by the Ku Klux Klan.

All threats to our staff are taken very seriously, due to the dangerous figures we deal with, so Davis' threat has been reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The Klan and Christian Identity churches tend to lure very violent types.

At one time Rose Hill had the infamous Colonel James Gordon "Bo" Gritz as a member. That was over a decade ago, when he was living in Tulsa. 

Colonel "Bo" Gritz
According to Wiki, Gritz " a former United States Army Special Forces officer who served for 22 years, including in the Vietnam War. His activities in retirement, notably attempted POW rescues in conjunction with the Vietnam War POW/MIA issue, have been controversial."

A profile on Source Watch says "He has ties and connections to a number of right wing militia and survivalist groups, and in recent years has become an adherent to Christian Identity. He has been a member of Dan Gayman's Identity based Church of Israel, and is now a member of both the Rose Hill Covenant Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma and the Inter-Continental Church of God in California."

You may recall that it was Gayman's church where the Kuklas were performing in a photo documented earlier in this article.

In 2001 the Joplin Globe did a feature article that mentioned Rose Hill and its pastor at the time.
He [Gritz] also introduces 82-year-old Pastor Fred Gabler of the Rose Hill Covenant Church in Tulsa. Gabler married Gritz and his wife, Gritz says, after they met at a Diener gun show in Oklahoma City. 
For some time, Gritz had been enamored with the Church of Israel at Schell City. He even suggested in his October 2000 newsletter that those who wanted to know more about "how to do as God has commanded" should contact Pastor Gayman.
But now there's been a falling out.
After Gritz attended Passover in April at Schell City, Gayman "uninvited" him because he felt Gritz was bringing too much unwanted attention to the church. Gritz vented his anger on his shortwave radio show, and he now considers Rose Hill in Tulsa as "his" church. His RV, in fact, is parked this weekend on the church parking lot.
Frederick "Fred" John Gabler was 92, when he passed away in 2010. Attending the funeral was his daughter Deanne Mitchell (Lincoln) of Lufkin, TX.

Lufkin has its own reputation as being a big klan town where walking around in a robe and hood is rather common. This doesn't mean Mitchell was in the KKK, like her father, but it is a coincidence that needs noted, especially as it has a connection to the Knights Party. 

Louis Beam
One of the most violent figures to come out of white supremacy is from Lufkin. Louis Beam was born there and later joined David Duke's Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, which later became the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan. 

For several years, Beam racked up a number of crimes, which included the bombing of the Pacifica radio station in Houston, a machine gun attack on a Houston communist party office, an assault on Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping who was visiting Texas, conspiracy to overthrow the government, and sexually molesting his daughters.

Miraculously, most of the charges filed against Beam ended up being dropped.

In April 1987, he and 13 other white supremacists were indicted by a federal grand jury in Arkansas for allegedly conspiring to overthrow the government. As a result, the FBI added Beam to its Ten Most Wanted List. However, Beam was acquitted of that crime as well.

Beam was considered one of the leading members of the Christian Identity Movement.  

Around the turn of the millennium, Beam drifted away from white supremacy and kept a low profile, while living in Texas. 

That's similar to the path Bo Gritz, who is now 80, has taken. He has stayed to himself for the last decade. He's likely living in California and no longer a member of Rose Hill.

The Source Watch entry about Gritz also stated, "In 1988, he [Gritz] was the vice presidential candidate of The Populist Party, with David Duke as the Presidential candidate, but stepped down after sharing the ticket with Duke for a few days. He has later said that this candidacy was a mistake, and he didn't know Duke beforehand. In 1992, he ran as the Presidential candidate of the party."

The SPLC's file on the organization says that David Duke founded the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan in 1975 before Pastor Thomas Robb took over in 1990 and established the Harrison compound redubbing the group as the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan.

Under Duke "...the leadership of state KKKK chapters boasted a pantheon of budding neo-Nazi figures, including notorious anti-Semite Don Black in Alabama, White Aryan Resistance founder Tom Metzger in California, and David Lane, a future leader of the terrorist group The Order, in Colorado."

Duke's plan was to get the Klan out of the robes and looking presentable. Robb has continued that policy, so you won't see their members in robes, but in their church clothes.

Pastor John D. Weaver speaking for the
violent extremist group League of the South
Some of the guest pastors to Rose Hill are connected to documented hate and extremist groups. One such pastor gives you a good idea of how quite a number of white separatist and secessionist groups overlap with Christian Identity churches and are heavily influenced by the growing dominion theology. 

A frequent visiting pastor to Rose Hill is John D. Weaver, who helms Freedom Ministries in Fitzgerald, Georgia. He's the one who tried to reduce the evil of Southern slavery in the video from earlier.

Rose Hill promotes Weaver by providing several of his sermons on the Truth in History YouTube Channel

We found multiple incidences of Weaver preaching at the Tulsa church. 

Those videos filmed of Weaver at Rose Hill include: The Great Revival in the Southern Army from January 6, 2018, Slavery in the Bible from November 18, 2017, The Biblical Aspects of History from November 26, 2017, and Will the Real Abraham Lincoln Please Stand Up from November 26, 2017. 

All the backgrounds to the neo-Confederate Weaver's videos are clearly at Rose Hill, as the background is the same as videos put out by Jennings and Uzzel. 

One sermon attacks Lincoln and makes him out as an illegitimate president and the villain of the Civil War.

Weaver bases part of his presentation on a book called The Eugenics of President Abraham Lincoln. His intent was to bring into question Lincoln's legitimacy and denounce his character by claiming he was an illegitimate child, who lied about his background to run for president.  

A scan of the full book can be found here.   

Weaver has a number of other sermons online, which promotes the Confederacy, white separatism, and slavery, while railing against Jews and interracial marriage. 

In one sermon, he asserted that “Had God desired only one race, he would not have created the other races. And if God had desired that we intermarry and amalgamate and become one, why would he have begun the other races to begin with? Very obviously it was not his desire that we intermarry. Because when you intermarry what you do then is basically destroy the races. You cannot maintain the differences.” The Progress Index, April 6, 2017 

In another sermon, Weaver argued, “Now I’m not trying to sound racist, nor am I being racist. I’m simply pointing out a fact, and here is the fact, this country was founded by white European Christians who wanted to establish a Christian culture. Not an African culture. Not an Oriental culture. Not a Muslim culture. Not a Mexican culture. But a Christian culture. And it was this Christian culture that was to be passed down to our posterity. Now what is happening in America? Are you listening? The exact same thing that happened in Israel. Interracial marriage, idolatry and multi-culturalism.” The Progress Index, April 6, 2017

A minister for more than four decades, John Weaver is a religious mainstay of the racist neo-Confederate movement and a man who has recently become a leading proponent of training Christians for armed battle. - Southern Poverty Law Center

Weaver is also known to speak at the Church at Kaweah, a militant group, who trains its own militia and maintains a 22-acre compound where members are preparing for war. 

According to the Intelligence Report, "In a 22-acre compound at the southern edge of Sequoia National Park in California, a secretive cohort of militant Christian fundamentalists is preparing for war. One of the men helping train the flock in the art of combat, a former Marine named Steve Klein, believes that California is riddled with Muslim Brotherhood sleeper cells “who are awaiting the trigger date and will begin randomly killing as many of us as they can.”"

The Church at Kaweah sells Weaver's sermon in order to raise money for their militia and features him in a video called To Teach Them War.

Last July, Weaver conducted weapons training at a conference sponsored by the neo-Confederate League of the South, a meeting that focused heavily on preparing for battle — presumably against the government. “Divine providence always arranges the time for fighting,” Weaver told the attendees. “You must remember, God is the god of war.”

About the Church at Kaweah, the Intelligence Report states, "The tiny church has been well outside the mainstream since the early 1990s, when founding pastor Warren Lee Campbell (father of the current pastor) bought into the notion that churches should shun all government regulation and answer solely to God. Since then, the church has become increasingly radical, ramping up its paramilitary activities and forging alliances with an array of figures revered on the radical right — among them, militia and Patriot leaders, white supremacists, neo-Confederates, border vigilantes and Christian Reconstructionists, whose goal is to turn America into a theocracy based on the Old Testament. In the meantime, the church’s militia has gone from patrolling the banks of the Kaweah River to conducting joint exercises with Minuteman groups along the Mexican border."

In 2016 Weaver spoke at the 2016 Vaughn's Brigade Lee/Jackson Banquet in Greenville, Tennessee.

Vaughn's Brigade is the Tennessee division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, which over the years has suffered internally. Some of the members want to stick to preserving Southern history and heritage, while others want to take a more racist and extreme position.

Rose Hill's pastor Charles Jennings, a Florida native, also belongs to the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SVC), a point recorded here at an event the SVC hosted in Schell City, Missouri. Jennings spoke on "The Spiritual Revival in the Confederate Army”.

Schell City, Missouri where the Kuklas performed is the home of Dan Gayman's Christian Identity church the Church of Israel. That town has a population of 249 people. Obviously, the church and SVC are overlapping there.

The extremist files maintained by the Southern Poverty Law Center considers John Weaver a neo-Confederate with direct connections to the League of the South (LOS) and has served as chaplain for the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV).
For years, Weaver was a leading member of the Council of Conservative Citizens, a hate group that opposes interracial marriage and has described black people as a “retrograde species of humanity.” He also long served as chaplain to the Southern heritage group Sons of Confederate Veterans at a time when its leadership was largely controlled by racist extremists.
Weaver was much sought after by extremist groups. In March 2007, for instance, he spoke for five nights at South Pointe Baptist Church in Pelzer, S.C., at a conference sponsored by Christian Exodus. That group was working to get Christians in South Carolina to secede and was led by Cory Burnell, himself a former member of the League of the South (LOS), a neo-secessionist hate group. - SPLC Extremist Files
Christian Exodus is a secessionist group birthed in dominionism (a form of Christian Nationalism) that formed in 2003. One of the foundations of dominionism is that God wants slavery, so they must work at rebuilding the world and enslaving non-whites. 

Rational Wiki has reported, "Their stated goal is to move "thousands of Christian Constitutionalists to South Carolina to accelerate the return of self-governance based on Christian principles". Barring that, they desire "personal secession" by "disentangling from society" where possible, including home schooling, going off the electric grid, self-sufficient farming, etc.."

Christian Exodus has achieved going underground. No longer a public group, it seems members are off the grid somewhere in South Carolina where they want to establish a white homeland.   

Dominion theology also teaches that homosexuals must be rounded up for execution. A core belief is that Jesus will not return to Earth until it is rid of homosexuals. Those who cannot be made straight in conversion programs would then be publicly executed with methods such as stoning.

Dominionism is the theology behind the kill the gay laws in Africa. American religious figures and churches have been the secret backbone pushing for such laws. Africa has the strictest laws governing homosexual activity. Once again Uganda is trying to pass legislation that would impose the death penalty for anyone engaging in gay sex.   

One American group known as The Family (also known as The Fellowship) has been heavily influencing African laws to oppress gays. That secretive organization worked with David Bahati, Uganda's State Minister of Finance for Planning, who is behind this year's kill the gay bill, as he was for the 2009 version that failed.

After being implicated in 2009 as assisting Bahati, who was and may still be a member of The Family, the organization disavowed the death penalty efforts.

biography of John Weaver shows he was close friends with Rousas John Rushdoony.

Rushdoony is considered the father of dominionism. 

[Editor's Note: In 2009, Hate Trackers shared information about The Family with investigative reporter Jeff Sharlet. Our information dealt with Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe's close association with The Family and his excessive trips to Africa. Sharlett's work in investigating The Family has been turned into a five-part series on Netfix. Senator Inhofe is a prominent figure in the series,]

Mass murderer Dylann Roof
The Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC) that Weaver belonged to was until 1985 known as the White Citizens Council, which was a sanitized version of the KKK.

Mass murderer Dylann Roof, who gunned down black worshippers inside a South Carolina church, states in his manifesto that he was heavily influenced by the CCC and that it was his gateway into white supremacy. 

In their Statement of Principles, the CCC affirms, "We believe that the United States derives from and is an integral part of European civilization and the European people .... We also oppose all efforts to mix the races of mankind, to promote non-white races over the European-American people through so-called “affirmative action” and similar measures, to destroy or denigrate the European-American heritage, including the heritage of the Southern people, and to force the integration of the races."

That aligns with Rose Hill's Anglo-Celtic mission.

Although smaller in numbers than the CCC, which may have as many as 15,000 members, the League of the South (LOS), who once counted Weaver as their chaplain, has become increasingly violent since they showed up at the deadly 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville.

Headquartered in Killeen, Alabama the LOS is a neo-Confederate and white supremacist group, who seek to establish an independent Southern republic with a culture based on Christian Identity beliefs blended with Celtic mythology. They are considered an Anglo-Celtic group, who follows the same mission as Rose Hill Community Church does.

League of the South at 2017's Unite the Right
LOS is working at accomplishing what the South failed to achieve during the Civil War, which includes a desire to herald in a second such war.

In 2014, the group established a paramilitary unit called the Indomitables. Two years ago the LOS rebranded that group into the Southern Defense Force.

In October 2018, just hours after a shooter killed 11 worshippers at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue, LOS leader Michael hill posted a video on Facebook boasting: “It never gets old! What a great ad for us!”

That caused some members to flee the group. However, that seems to have been overcome, as many are returning, while even more extreme types are drawn to the LOS. Their exact numbers are unknown. At one time the LOS numbered about 4,000. They've increased their recruitment activity this year, so it may now surpass that figure.

Last week, members of the League of the South were captured on security cameras at the Emmet Till Memorial in Mississippi. In 1955, Till was a fourteen-year-old African American, who was brutally lynched after being accused of flirting with a white woman - an accusation that has been disputed. In the Jim Crow Era of the South, offending a white woman could get you killed.

Two men were arrested for the crime, but were later acquitted of the murder by an all-white jury.

The LOS members were there to read a racist screed in front of Till's memorial. This action brings us back to the Christian Identity theology being based in a need to separate or enslave non-white races in order to protect white women.

Hate Trackers considers the LOS a domestic terrorism group and it's our belief their violence will increase over the next year, as their ranks continue to be flooded with neo-Nazis and Klan members. In addition to thousands involved in LOS, the group has shown itself capable of organizing together with other white supremacist groups around the country.

Robert Caringola
Another figure that keeps showing up at Rose Hill as a guest pastor is a man named Robert Gerald Caringola, age 62, who holds a B.A. in History from the University of Arkansas. A Facebook account we found on the former U.S. Marine shows him working at the Arkansas Department of Education.

On an employee portal for Arkansas state employees, Caringola has the phone number 501-682-4219 and uses the email

He and his wife Linda Romine Caringola reside at 3320 Hollmore St in Sherwood, AR She works for Central Arkansas Hearing, Inc.

Caringola is a registered Republican, but his wife has no voting record.

In our vetting of the Caringola's we discovered a slew of audio recordings he had done on a site called Searching that site, we discovered it was a division of Jennings' Kingdom Treasures Ministries. It, also, gave us Jennings home phone number: 918-553-6000.

Caringola seems to have grown up Catholic, as we found a 1975 announcement of his graduation from a school in Arkansas.

On a final note, another guest at Rose Hill Community Church in Tulsa has been the controversial figure Coach Dave Daubenmire of Pass the Salt Ministries

Among the controversies the obnoxious Daubenmire has created are his complaint that he couldn't use the N-word against black people, his Holocaust denial, and a belief that masturbation is a homosexual act, meaning if a man touches his own penis then he is gay.
