R.J. Rushdoony wrote this essay long before anyone ever heard of the Wuhan Death Virus From China, misgendering or microaggression, and a host of other evils that our worldly masters have visited on us.
But say “God’s law,” and you’re more than likely to get a hysterical reaction and your hearers will stop up their ears and go stampeding back to the Democrat Party to be taken care of.
But as the wisdom of God, personified, says in Proverbs 8:36, “All they that hate me love death.”
Spray-painted onto the ruin was the message, “I Bet you stay home now you hypokrits.” Must’ve been a college graduate.
Arson is suspected. Ya think?
Warning! The coronavirus panic is viewed by Far Left Crazy as a golden opportunity to transform America into a socialist dump. You know they’ve always had it in for the churches.
And you know they’ve been growing less and less coy about making their desires evident to all.
They want an America from which Christianity has been extinguished, Christian morality has been erased, and the only freedom left is the freedom to fornicate. Everything else will be strictly controlled by government. Their government.
They would like for the national lockdown to go on to Election Day. They think that’ll give their Democrats the victory. And then they can get really serious–Red China-serious–about stomping down the churches and making everybody’s mind right, or else.
Stop them this time, or be resigned to lose your liberties.
This is the only nooze I’ll report today. I haven’t got the heart for more.
When I read the line, “The latest enforcement measures have included removal of the cross from churches,” my fear was that this was happening here, in America. But no: this is the latest from Red China.
For reasons that sane people cannot understand, the Chinese communist state has decided on a “crackdown on religious practice”–and this involving government-sanctioned churches belonging to the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association: that part of the Church that has committed itself to compromise with communism. It’s happening all over the mainland; and the priests in those churches are complying because they’re afraid that if they don’t, their churches will be demolished or converted to secular use.
The government has imposed “strict new regulations concerning religion,” and failure to comply can result in destruction of the church.
This is what happens when you get into bed with the devil. And so we have “teams of young people” removing crosses from the outside and the inside of churches.
It still fascinates me that atheists deny using the apparatus of the state to wage an inquisition against Christians. Forcing a Christian to take part in a homosexual parody of marriage, turning the First Amendment on its head to prohibit the free exercise of religion, hauling Christians up in front of “human rights” tribunals–gee! just like in communist countries!–that’s not a purposeful campaign of harassment?
President Trump turned out better than I dared to hope, and I can’t wait to vote for him again. But why do leftids say they’re Christians? Does anybody still believe them? Abortion, transgender, homosexuality, fomenting racial strife, in bed with atheism and Islam–how do they get away with it?
Just as Khrushchev once predicted, communism will bury us–if we don’t bury it first. And burying communism means burying the Democrat Party.
Here’s what he said that got their noozie knickers in a twist:
“God gave us grace on November 8, 2016, to change the course we were on. God had been taken out of our schools and lives, a nation had turned its back on God. I encourage you to use this time at home to get back in the Word. Read our Bibles and spend time with our families.”
Oohhhh! Pretty vexatious, isn’t it? How dare he say such things? How dare he even suggest them? Betcha anything he’s taking away someone’s childhood. Does he not know that any mention of God or prayer or the Bible or anything religious is, like, unconstitutional? Where’s the ACLU? Somebody’s gotta sue this guy! Nobody should be allowed to say a thing like that!
And if we ever get a Democrat back in the White House, no one will.
Not that we actually care what this superannuated travesty of a newspaper says, but I think we need to understand how leftids think, the better to defeat them.
So some Far Left Crazy at the Times has written, “The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science Is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response” (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/27/opinion/coronavirus-trump-evangelicals.html). Well, gee, almost everything’s closed down, they’re working day and night to find a cure, and they just ponied up $2 trillion to tide us over–does that seem “crippled” to you? Does that really look like the Trump administration is just lah-dee-dahing it?
Yeahbut, yeahbut! The “science denialism”–what?–“of his [Trump’s] ultraconservative religious allies” is holding us back from the triumphs we’d surely have if only there weren’t any Christians in America. Or something. It’s very hard to make out what leftids are trying to say sometimes. But let’s try. Near as I can figure:
Being anti-abortion makes you “anti-science.”
Not believing in Man-Made Climbit Change makes you “anti-science.”
Not buying into Evolution makes you “anti-science.”
Failing to confess the existence of several dozen “genders” makes you “anti-science.”
Not being a hypnotized zombie leftid makes you “anti-science.”
Not taking the New York Times seriously makes you “anti-science.”
And if you didn’t vote for Hillary, you are way “anti-science.” Shame on you.
The White House squirted out of their hands in 2016, they can’t face life without power over other people, and liberals are just plain irrational and nasty in the first place, and puffed up almost to bursting with self-importance.
Ms. Rasenen is being “investigated” for two criminal incidents. First, for a leaflet she wrote 16 years ago. Second, for criticizing her denomination for holding a “gay event” at the church. She also posted some Bible verses online–Romans 1: 24-27. She is being defended by the Alliance Defending Freedom, headquartered here in the USA–where defending freedom is still allowed.
Does anybody really wonder why God should be mad at Western civilization–which has made an idol of sodomy, and worships every known species of perversion? And makes it a criminal offense to adhere to the word of God? Have we suddenly been catapulted back in time into the middle of the Book of Acts?
Well, if we have, God grant us the strength to say to today’s tyrants, as Peter and John said to those of their own time, “We ought to obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29).
But for Christians to be “investigated” and persecuted in Western countries that once were known as Christendom is a dark stain that won’t be easily washed away.
When I was in elementary school, I couldn’t learn how to add a column of figures: just couldn’t do it. Until my father sat down with me and, in 20 minutes or so, taught me how to do it–succeeding where the qualified experts had failed.
That was a long time ago. Today there are many solid alternatives to public education, all of them better than a public school.
The only purpose of an education system owned and run by leftists is to turn out more leftists.
I did a lot of teaching in the public schools. I saw a lot of things that made me mad. But Gunn saw even more. This is a deeply penetrating documentary. You can watch it on the Chalcedon website, the whole thing:
Why, why, why do Christians continue to send their children to public schools owned by persons who hate Christianity and want to wipe it out? Who fill children’s heads with “transgender,” “gay,” “America is racist!” and all the rest of that slop?
And you can forget about being “salt and light” in this arena. You’ll be fired so fast, it’ll make your head spin.
I can’t help thinking we have made God work very hard to keep our country afloat, to preserve us in spite of our multitude of sins. It’s a miracle of Providence that we’re still here.
But I do think the Lord would be pleased if we took up some of the work ourselves.
