Bruce Wilson's recent reporting on Talk To Action (Talk2Action) about the International Transformation Network (ITN) and its Hawaii chapter, Transformation Hawaii ("Hawai'i He'e Nalu"), reveals that Republican Lt. Gov. of Hawaii and candidate for Governor, James "Duke" Aiona, and Democratic Honolulu Mayor and candidate for Governor, Mufi Hannemann have connections with "a religio-political movement that, beyond US shores, is brutally eliminationist."
Mayor Hannemann and Lt. Gov. Aiona have both attended ITN events for years.
ITN Founder and CEO Ed Silvoso announced, "It doesn't matter if the Republican or the Democratic candidate wins the governorship [of Hawaii]. Either one is already in the kingdom."
Transformation Hawaii President Allen Cardines stated, "Hawaii will be the first Christian state."
ITN Chairman and noted Hawaii architect Francis Oda declared, "God is transforming Hawaii... we are the tip of his spear."
From Wilson's article:
[ITN] leaders such as Ed Silvoso claim homosexuals are possessed by demons, assert that HIV and AIDS can be cured through faith healing and prayer, and decry basic birth control methods. They oppose labor unions and secular public education. ITN ideology targets mainstream Christianity with the charge that Catholics and Protestants who are not "born again" and charismatic are not saved and so will not go to heaven.
[ITN] is part of a global charismatic evangelical movement that seeks to "transform" cities, nations, even whole continents, by purifying the world of perceived evil. As ITN Founder and CEO Ed. Silvoso states in a promotional video, "Jesus designed the church to be his agency on Earth to destroy Satan's empire."
ITN operatives have played a significant role organizing and inspiring Ugandan legislators who have drafted, cosponsored, and backed the draconian and internationally denounced Anti Homosexuality Bill before Uganda's parliament which would mandate the execution of many HIV positive Ugandans and also require, on pain of three years in prison, that citizens report to the police anyone suspected of being gay. The penalty for being homosexual in Uganda is imprisonment for life.
One of the Transformation Hawaii / Hawai'i He'e Nalu projects has been the so-called "Aloha Card." Lt. Governor Duke Aiona has handed out, with the approval of Hawaii's Department of Education, tens of thousands of the plastic business-card sized cards to students in Hawaii's schools.
