The leaders of the “conservative” movement are dropping like flies, all of them going over to the enemy. Some do it because they’re evil, and some because they’re fools. The two are not mutually exclusive.
Last week the chairman of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus, beautifully demonstrated how one can be immoral and stupid at the same time when he told a USA Today reporter that the GOP ought to surrender to the homosexual mockmarriage movement because “I don’t believe we need to act like Old Testament heretics…”
What is this stunata talking about? Does he think it makes you a heretic to remain faithful to the Biblical teaching on marriage and sexual morality? But that would be the opposite of being a heretic, wouldn’t it? Maybe Reince doesn’t know what the word means. Or maybe he thinks the Word of God as given in the Old Testament is itself heretical. The man’s ignorance is truly monumental.
And then there’s Bill O’Reilly, a phony who occasionally impersonates a Catholic, a jive “conservative” who doesn’t want to conserve anything of value. The other night he grumbled that those who defend marriage, morality, and goodness are only “thumping the Bible.”
Has it come to this? Have we sunk so low, that we are now wrong or backward, somehow, if we appeal to God as the highest authority? Would O’Reilly be more impressed if we cited Darwin, or Brad Pitt, or rap lyrics? I don’t even want to know what his highest authority would be.
For my part I will continue to thump the Bible for all I’m worth.
Resist these uncircumcised Philistines. Resist them to the end.
God will prevail. They won’t.
