For Immediate Release:
Honolulu Hawaii October 29, 2010
There is a thin line between the separation of church and state. However in video clips recently uncovered, it appears that some local politicians are making a concerted effort to stand in line to mix church and state to advance a specific religious agenda.
Journalist Bruce Wilson of Talk2Action.org, provided video showing Cam Cavasso, Republican candidate for the United States Senate from Hawaii, in attendance at the November 2009 Transformation Hawaii Conference at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. This conference is affiliated with the International Transformation Network (ITN), which was founded by, and is led by, Mr. Ed Silvoso.
Lt. Gov. Aiona spoke at the conference, where participants were later led in chanting prayers to break the power of "demons" and "curses," and to give Christians authority over the State.
As noted above, U.S. Senate candidate Cam Cavasso can be seen participating in this prayer ceremony. The video also shows other Republican candidates participating in the conference. In fact, they are standing on the stage behind Ed Silvoso, including Shaun Kawakami (candidate for State House of Representatives, District 38), and Beth Fukumoto (candidate for State House of Representatives, District 37). Our October 29, 2010 telephone conversation with candidate Shaun Kawakami revealed that, in addition to the Waikiki conference, he also attended an ITN conference in Argentina.
As you may recall, this is the same organization that Hawaii's Lt. Governor Duke Aiona is a member of. You may also recall that Duke Aiona stated that he wants to dedicate Hawaii's schools to Jesus. Moreover, at the same November 2009 conference at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, Dr. Pat Francis, a featured speaker, said:
"And we are charged, standing guard, and we put our foot on Hawaii. And you said every place we put our foot, we will rule. So we are the Kingdom, the Kingdom is here."
"Therefore in Jesus name, the King of Kings, so rule in Hawaii, and the people of Hawaii are blessed. We break the power of poverty in the name of Jesus, we break the power of poverty in the name of Jesus, we break the power of poverty in the name of Jesus, we break the power of witchcraft power, every witchcraft power we drive you out, in the name of Jesus. We thank you oh God, you said that if two shall agree on something, anything, it shall be done. Therefore in the name of Jesus we take the prince over Hawaii."
"We thank you oh God that you have given us power over all rulers of darkness. And we speak to the principalities, the powers, the rulers of darkness, the spiritual wickedness in high place. That in the name of Jesus Christ, by the power of the blood of Jesus Christ, we nullify you tonight, we neutralize your works of darkness, and we declare that every plan and every strategy over Hawaii is now broken, tonight in Jesus name, in Jesus name, in Jesus name."
I believe that this information is important to the voters and the general public in that it will help them to learn important information about these candidates and their Christian agenda.
Lt. Gov. Aiona, and the other three candidates were led in prayer to break the power of "demons" and "curses," to give Christians authority over the State.
