In 2005 Pete Peters significantly expanded his radio and Internet outreach ministry. His media efforts now include shortwave radio, satellite, 24/7 streaming audio/video on the Internet, and substantial program archives on his Web page. In addition to his taped messages, he now has a live weeknight radio broadcast, and live audio and video broadcasts of his Sunday morning religious services, which include his offering Communion. Scriptures for America advertisements state that it has acquired greater national and international air time on the shortwave radio station, World Wide Christian radio, including an afternoon radio spot which gives them access to prime time in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Rim, where Peters claims to also have listeners. With many additional hours of radio time per month to pay for, new equipment, and increased staff, Scriptures for America now has a greatly expanded budget, which Peters claims is being adequately supported so far by tithes and donations from followers.
Peters' activities in 2005 included weekend conferences in Anaheim, California (February), in Branson, Missouri (May), and in The Dalles, Oregon (October). He also held the annual Passover assembly in April at his base, the LaPorte Church of Christ in Colorado, and spoke in the Colville, Washington area in May.
This year Peters' followers were exhorted to "anoint courthouses" with special "anointing oil" which he sold on his Web site as a strategy to combat the "one-world-government movement" and other poorly defined ills of contemporary times. He called on a small cadre of "Gideon Guerilla fighters" to engage in a spiritual battle by anointing county and state courthouses, bankruptcy courts, probate courts, juvenile courts, and registries of deeds. Peters claimed that by pouring the small vials of oil on the buildings and uttering a short prayer, his followers could cast out any evil spirits that may reside therein, and hasten the day when America re-embraces Godly policies. Peters claims that over 2,000 buildings were anointed during the year, in at least 25 states. His Web site also lists weekly prayer alerts to be said by followers; one such suggested prayer was posted for two weeks, and alleged that evildoers were attempting to "spread plague through the flu vaccinations." He has commented on 2005 events such as the tsunami and Hurricane Katrina, stating that "The truth is a God of Judgment may have just had enough and flushed the toilet."
