Remember this? Noozies got all bent out of shape because a Harlem church congregation didn’t go for heresy in the pulpit. Yeahbut, yeahbut! I was Democrat preaching! Don’t these miserable peasants know that’s better than the Bible?
There is a weird ideology on the loose that’s responsible for many of our troubles–a form of “Ye shall be as gods” which I call hyper-humanism.
Its message: With The Smartest People In The World in charge of everything, nothing bad can ever happen to anybody. Unless, of course, some Enemy of the People doesn’t do his job. Or stoops to some newfangled crime like Climate Change Denial or Misgendering. And if something bad does happen, it’s probably because our rulers haven’t yet been given enough power over us.
The priesthood of this pseudo-religion is a mish-mosh of scientists, noozies, entertainers, and assorted celebrities great and small–with Far Left Crazy politicians firmly seated at the very top of the pyramid.
Denying God, they assign a kind of godhood to themselves. They believe they can do everything that God failed to do, forgot to do, or didn’t do because He doesn’t exist. Just stay frosty while they go about breaking eggs–and if you’re one of those eggs, well, too bad–until they’ve made the world’s greatest omelet ever. Presto! No more war, no more disease, no more inequality! No more bad anything. Man is perfectible by man.
Which is not true; but as many have observed, truth is not a Far Left value.
It’s going to be hard for good things to happen to us as long as we believe such foolishness.
Here’s one from a few days ago that our Free & Independent Nooze Media Inc. didn’t shout from the housetops.
Debating “transgender protections” in the so-called Equality Act, Democrat reps piled on Rep. George Stuebe, Florida Republican, for telling the truth about “transgender”–that is, it’s a sham and a delusion–and saying it’s a business clearly condemned in the Bible (https://www.frc.org/updatearticle/20210301/nadler-god). That got their knickers in a twist.
But the quote of the day belonged to New York Democrat Jerry Nadler, who said, and we quote:
“What any religious tradition describes as God’s will is no concern of this Congress.”
Because it’s a Democrat-controlled Congress. That’s all you need to know.
Is any purpose to be served by pointing out that the very existence of the United States, as we have known it, is founded on the word of God? Our morals, our traditions, and our laws? Does Nadler believe America would’ve been just the same as it is now if the members of the Constitutional Convention had all been Muslims, Hindus, or pagans?
We have nothing left but our prayers, including this one: Oh, Lord! Remember that these things are done without our consent, against our will, and over our objections. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
The damnedest thing is that they actually do think they can get us to give up our Christian faith, as if pleasing them were more important than pleasing God. And they think they’re tempting us by offering us STDs, atheism, race riots, an all-devouring government, and all the rest of their Far Left Crazy menu–and those are just the goodies.
Because if Christians ever got together and created their own parallel markets and institutions, the established markets and institutions would suddenly be dis-established–left high and dry and irrelevant. And the best the worldly folk can do is to keep attacking Christians, keep us on the defensive, so we won’t suddenly wake up and realize how strong we could be.
We have no king but Jesus Christ.
Example: Education, or what we laughingly refer to as “education.” What do you suppose would happen to the public schools if tens of millions of Christian children left and never came back? How hard is that to figure out? Or the colleges and universities: what if there were enough Christian colleges for Christian families to send their kids to?
What if there were banks owned and operated by Christians, serving Christians, social media platforms that never censor Christians, cable news shows owned by Christians, etc. etc.? You see the point. All those left-wing-friendly institutions, for most of the people in America, would become irrelevant. They would either have to clean up their act or die.
Don’t look for CNN/MSNBC to clean up their act under any circumstances. They will go under. (Not a dry eye in the house!)
Or, as we like to say on this blog… Starve the beast.
But all the other restrictions, the court allowed to remain in place. No singing. Limited number of worshipers allowed to come inside. All the court did was to allow a few people to venture into a house of worship.
Yeah, we’re still waking up in Mandatistan every day–where there is no legislation, no debate, no compromise: just a lot of “mandates” handed down by tinpot tyrants who never apply them to themselves.
The court could have sided with the plaintiffs all the way, and told Gov. Noisome no, you can’t keep people out of church, you can’t prohibit them from singing or praying together, you can’t limit the church to 25% capacity. They could’ve done those things, but didn’t.
Justices Kavanagh and Barrett, whom we fought for, prayed for, and defended–guess what? They’ve let us down again! It seems they’re pretty cool with most of the restrictions.
“Permission to worship God, O master!”
Starting to sound like the Book of Exodus, isn’t it?
P.S.–Y’know what I’d like to see ’em restrict in California? A “Pride” parade! Go on, California–restrict that! I dare you.
Where do people think computers get their “smarts” from? Do you think a Google gizmo can “know” anything that some human programmer didn’t put in?
Sometimes we, as Christians, have to purchase goods and services from non-Christians, or even from bad people–because that’s the fallen world we live in. But God forbid we should ever turn to Google for any kind of guidance.
“Alexa, what must I do to be saved?” is a foolish question.
