• Losing The Polestar

    October 23, 2015

    There is an adage in politics: “Nations tend to get the kind of leaders they deserve.” If this is true, it is long past time for Americans to examine their behavior in the last fifty years or so. It doesn’t take much in the way of soul-searching to see that a lot of our recent national behavior has BEGGED for the kind of government we have now. In one way or another, we have demanded that the laws and rules of an orderly society be discarded.

    Even bloodthirsty, torturing murderers get trials, but helpless people of all sizes and ages are left to die, starved and thirsted to death, or torn apart before they have had a chance to breathe the air of a (formerly) free nation.

    The decade of the Fifties was a time of real blessing for America. The Korean War was over, and the soldiers were home to add their muscle to the workforce. Lots of people were born during those years, and their parents were the first generation that was able to promise their children an easier life and have a good chance of seeing their promises fulfilled.

    In the urgency to make things better for our children, we began to put aside faith and perspicacity. We became satisfied to believe what we were told by news outlets, because doing our own research interfered with our quest to improve the lots of our children. Attending church and instructing our children in their faith lost its importance. Those children became selfish and spoiled because parents worked so hard on their behalf the children didn’t have to learn the value of hard work, sacrifice, and self-discipline, and both parents were often at work when the kids got home from school, leaving them to fend for themselves and get into their own special brands of mischief without supervision.

    Parents scrimped and did without so their kids could go to college, whether those children were smart enough or even cared enough about education to go. The parents saw it as an opportunity to get the educational advantages they had never had. The mostly-ungrateful-for-the-sacrifice students saw it as an opportunity to party till they puked, and the deterioration of morals continued as socialistic professors convinced their students that American morality was old-fashioned and selfish.

    As those wastrel children came of age and their parents insisted they “go to work and do something with that diploma we scrimped to provide you with,” the students were just as determined not to amount to anything that was even remotely connected with “work.” They wanted “careers!” They were convinced that their “caring” about the poor and downtrodden was more helpful than succeeding to the point that they could hire and PAY those poor and downtrodden so they wouldn’t have to remain in that condition.

    It never occurred to these parents that never providing a child with opportunities to fail and accept consequences for behavior simply cheated those children of the most valuable life lessons of all, and raising children according to Dr. Spock’s book became the only way to do things.

    The Polestar

    A moral absolute is more than just a law. It is a polestar. The polestar is the unchanging star in the sky that never moves. It never changes. It can be obscured by clouds, but it will be exactly in place when the clouds clear away. Navigators who lost the position of the polestar could only wander off course, often into danger and death. Everything depended on knowing where that star was, even in daylight.

    But a moral polestar in this society has become an unnecessary piece of archaic baggage, fit only to be discarded by the “enlightened” elites. Consequently, we have children sexualized in kindergarten, teachers having sexual relationships with their much-younger students, and a generation of people who are so completely desensitized to sexual propriety that they think nothing of having sex in the classrooms, on screen, or wherever the urge strikes them. We have priests, rabbis, and ministers who take advantage of their flocks, sexually, financially, and morally, even to the point of murdering their entire congregations, as in the case of Jim Jones. Government officials and financiers steal as much as they can, as often as they can, from as many as they can, and are NEVER caught, tried, convicted, or punished. If this isn’t a description of a society that has lost its moral bearings, I don’t know what is.

    If we deliberately destroy our moral guidelines, we deserve the consequences of that destruction. Locking onto the polestar once again is the only way we have as a nation to get back on course and repair the damage from those consequences.

    I wondered today about the political stupidity of Americans, and how we got this way. It’s such a convoluted trail that it would take a half-dozen of historian Paul Johnson’s tomes to unravel it. We have dumbed down our school children; we have turned our colleges over to Fascists and Communists; we have allowed our Church to become a haven for evil, heresy, blasphemy, rebellion, and perversity; we have turned our backs on ALL AND ANY REAL AUTHORITY, and ceded our freedoms to a centralized government. We have no one to blame for this situation but ourselves, but I think a large factor in the wussification of America (can that be a word?) is our deliberate turning away from any absolute authority.

    When we threw God out of the public arena and the public schools, we deliberately slammed the door against clear thought, reasonable discourse, a true chain of command, and real protection of the innocent. (This is such a BIG concept that I am having trouble finding words to express it. Please be patient with my puny attempts.) Who would have thoughtt, 40 years ago, that we would EVER turn our backs on the God Who loves us and created us out of that love? And yet, here we are, sitting like spoiled babies surrounded by toys we have deliberately broken, wondering how it all went wrong, and refusing to allow anyone with knowhow to actually fix them.

    Maleness and true masculinity has undergone a 40 year reign of terror in this country. The truest of all patriarchal figures is God the Father. The human manifestation of His maleness is Jesus Christ. The ultimate role model has been relegated to the wastebasket by American culture. When America modeled herself after the MALENESS of God, it was a light to the world. Now it is modeling itself after fallen Eve and her fixation on the sly words of the serpent, and the results are almost too horrible to contemplate. Will we EVER find our way back to God?

    In the meantime, while we dream of a road show starring Torquemada and Hercules to punish the betrayers and clean the church stables we might consider the even more hopeless task of re-invigorating the patriarchy so that strong, smart males and females can thrive and model true roles for their places in Creation. This is the saddest part of all. We have turned our Catholic Church over to a bunch of hyenas who have only one goal in mind–to tear the Church down and in 3 “days,” rebuild it in their own image. They have almost succeeded.

    America is already a mission field, so missionary priests from other countries will probably figure largely in our future as the Catholic Church in America. But we NEED Torquemada. We NEED stable hands to clean out the muck. We NEED to get the Church (and the nation) back from these hyenas. It will survive, but the chances are pretty good that it won’t be surviving in the United States beyond a remnant, a small underground Church hiding in barns and forest glens.

    The hyenas are laughing as they close in on our young, and no lion is appearing on the horizon…

    ‘Nuff said, sadly.

  • Why Are You Doing This To Us?

    October 13, 2015

    Gentle men and ladies of Washington;
    Why are you doing this to us? We elected you, and you are betraying our trust right, left, and center. Nothing has been left to us, you have stripped us of nearly every cent of income, every ounce of autonomy, our jobs, our Constitutional rights, and every chance to have our voices heard by our government. You, as our elected officials, not only ignore us, you treat us with sneering contempt and accuse us of being insane for wanting to keep our own healthcare insurance, keep our government off our backs and out of our wallets, our jobs, and the money we earn.

    You have stolen the future from our posterity in your mad rush to spend every cent we could produce, and then deliberately shut down any means we might have had to produce more by breaking the backs of the businesses who refused to get into bed with you, so they could not hire us. THIS is what you call “honest representation??”

    Why are you DOING this to us?


    If anybody in the world has the right to feel seduced and abandoned, it’s the American voter. You are kneeling on our throats, you are kicking us between the legs, and you are spitting in our faces. What is left that you haven’t thought of — arm tattoos and cattlecars? You abort us at the beginning of our lives, then you rush us to the incinerators after we have ceased to be useful to you.

    WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO US?? You got our votes, you got our money, you own our lives. What else do you want from us? What else are you planning to do to us?

  • Uninteded Consequences? Really??

    September 30, 2015

    Years ago, liberated women who were horrified at the spectre of a life without no-consequence sex, with a growing population, and with an expanding economy, demanded easily accessible abortion. Many cooler heads looked into the future, trying to foresee the national (and natural) consequences of such a choice, and they all came up with the same nightmare scenario:

    Killing babies THEN was going to lead to dire consequences thirty, forty, and fifty years down the road, in terms of culture and economy, not to mention the mortally sinful nature of the practice. Now, here we are, fifty years or so since the abortion ruling, and what do we see? Our economy has shrivelled to the point where it can no longer support the topheavy government and its profligate spending and borrowing. We have dried up the tax and economic income that could have come from an expanding taxbase (read “workforce”).

    Over the last fifty years we have busily gone about demanding the right to slaughter aborning the millions of taxpayers who should have been by now working, paying taxes, paying into our retirement and Social Security systems, as well as feeding the economy with their purchases and savings.

    So, how did the super-geniuses in Washington decide to deal with the truncated economy? That’s easy. They fired all the good American employees, put them on food stamps, and imported foreign workers, and they swarm over our southern borders in, well, swarms. But the problem with this part of the liberal plan is that, even though they can manipulate the election process and get these criminal trespassers to the polls on time, they can’t be sure they will pay taxes, and all the influx of new labor is not only NOT the solution to the problem, but in their millions, simply adds more strain on a crippled and failing system.

    So, now that our demographic chickens have come home to roost, what does the left come up with as a new solution? More pressure, more spending, more gifts abroad, more borrowing from China, more porous borders to all comers, etc.

    No matter how hard the right tries to turn things around by cutting spending and defunding numerous wasteful programs, they are outmaneuvered by the social experimenters on the left who still believe the socialist mantra that the answer to our national problems lies in more illegal “immigration,” more abortion, more government, more debt, more spending, and more regulation.

    The criminal trespassers have it easy with all the handouts and special care they get as gifts from an unwilling American population. We citizens, on the other hand, are locked into a Catch-22. We can’t leave (can’t afford to), we can’t work (our companies are hiring the cheap imported labor (you get what you pay for, fellas…)), we can’t save (home mortgages are foreclosed in record numbers), we can’t afford to pay the taxes the government demands, pay for Obamacare, and all the government can figure out to do about our desperate situation is to hire more government workers, hire more illegals, raise our taxes, and print more useless paper “money” to pump into the stock market to keep it inflated. (Balloon economy, anyone?)

    We were warned years ago, but were all busy trying to legislate sex without consequences, and didn’t read the signs telling us that abortion was not just counterproductive, but fatal to us as a nation, and to abandon it before we killed off the last future taxpayer. We have created two generations of people who copulate without worrying about consequences. They have no concept of the reality of dead people in the future as a consequence of abortions in the past. It simply cannot be comprehended by their dumbed-down minds, so they have no concept of sex as a sacred part of a marriage between a man and a woman. They can’t see past their genitalia and their momentary pleasures to envision a world where the people killed in the past do not populate the future.

  • Hopeychangey

    September 25, 2015

    It’s a fact that there has never been a time in the history of the world when  news gets out and gets spread faster than it does today, for all the obvious reasons you already know. Nowadays, we should add this consideration to the way we think about any national and international events.

    More people know more about what’s going on around them than ever before (and, on the other side, there are probably more people knowing LESS about anything than every before, as well).

    Unfortunately, thanks to the efforts of leftists who refuse to allow real values, morals, and politeness to be taught in public schools, we are faced with a nation of government-educated people who have no concept of Right or Wrong (as it applies to others), a simplistic belief in the leftist Holy Grail of “fairness,” of decency or degeneracy, or of truth and falsehood, who believe that they are entitled to the fruits of the labor of others because they have been taught that they are, regardless of the truth.

    Without God in our daily life, it becomes just existence. With no morality, least of all, the kind called for in the Ten Commandments, we become a nation of undisciplined and selfish pleasure-seekers, people who can’t be bothered with kindness or charity, who believe that signing up for welfare or grant handouts of whatever kind can be a career choice. The apparent main focus of the daily life of a young person is “connecting,” a new word for finding a sexual partner for the night. Unborn babies are slaughtered because of their inconvenient existence, their body parts removed while their hearts still beat and sold off to the highest bidders, and these things are called part of “life.”

    In such an environment, it is easy for ignorant people to be led astray by plausible liars. Unaware because they are taught so, that there is REAL TRUTH, the victims of these plausible liars fall for any lies, and find their lives losing meaning by the day, but thinking that being “cool” or “hip” will fix all that. Nothing is important but their individual comfort.

    Unfortunately, this also means that when a smooth-talking liar comes along, he will be able to convince large numbers to follow him. The current trend of referring to President Barack Hussein Obama as “The One,” or “messiah,” are simply symptoms of the unknown hunger in the hearts of sheep without a shepherd, whose souls long for the REAL Messiah, but who know Him not. But most of them have already thrown out the REAL Messiah, and have chosen to follow the fake.

    Empty promises are simply that: empty. It’s not difficult to promise anything. The difficulty lies in keeping those promises. Unfortunately, the people who have been lied to still retain enough understanding to believe that someone who promises us something is going to keep the promise, while the liars just add lie to lie without the slightest moral qualm.

    A false messiah promises “hope” and “change,” and more of the same. For a lot of those who believe the change they hope for will be that they will be suddenly thrust into the ascendancy above others, placed into positions of power and privelege. They hope the change will mean no more debt or work for them. They believe they will become the elite, while those whom they blamed for their problems will suddenly become the “underclass,” to be treated with disdain and contempt. Will these changes materialize? Unfortunately, even a pale version will not only not be probable, but not possible this side of the grave.

    Many times throughout history people have tried to pass themselves off as the hope of their nations, or the long-awaited One who would change the world for the better and bring the Utopian completion of all mundane life. But, unfortunately, these charlatans have presented themselves to people who have stopped believing in the REAL Messiah, whose Return the real world still awaits. If the people are tired enough of waiting, they will settle for a plausible substitute to acclaim; one who promises “hope,” and “change.”

  • Are We Embarrassed Yet?*

    September 19, 2015

    The “Undeniable Truths” were part of an article written by Rush Limbaugh for the Sacramento Union in 1988:

    1. The greatest threat to humanity lies in the nuclear arsenal of the

    3. Peace does not mean the elimination of nuclear weapons.
    4. Peace does not mean the absence of war.
    5. War is not obsolete.
    6. Ours is a world governed by the aggressive use of force.
    7. There is only one way to get rid of nuclear weapons – use them.
    8. Peace cannot be achieved by developing an “understanding” with the
    Russian People.
    9. When Americans oppose America, it is not always courageous and sacred;
    it is sometimes dangerous.
    10. Communism Kills.
    11. Neither the US, nor anyone else, imposes freedom on the peoples of

    12. Freedom is God-given.
    13. In the USSR, peace means the absence of opposition.
    14. To free peoples, peace means the absence of threats and the presence
    of justice.
    15. The Peace Movement in the US, whether by accident or design, is
    16. The collective knowledge and wisdom of seasoned citizens is the most
    valuable, yet untapped, resource our young-people have.
    17. The greatest football team in the history of civilization is the

    27. Soviet Leaders are just left-wing dictators.
    28. Abe Lincoln saved this nation.
    29. The L.A. Raiders will never be the team that they were when they
    called Oakland their home.
    30. The US will again go to war.
    31. To more and more people, a victorious US is a sinful US.
    32. This is frightening and ominous.

    34. This is not the fault of the rich.
    35. You should thank God for making you an American; and instead of
    feeling guilty about it, help spread our ideas worldwide.

    Now, Saul Alinsky’s side:

    1) Healthcare –Control healthcare and you control the people
    2) Poverty –Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
    3) Debt –Increase the debt  to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
    4) Gun Control –Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.
    5) Welfare –Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income)
    6) Education –Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.
    7) Religion –Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools
    8) Class Warfare –Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

    *(Huge hat-tip to the wonders of the outernet…)

    Comparing these two sets of axioms is self-explanatory.  I wonder every day how we so easily went from the first set of truths to the second without a pause or a quibble.   And I wonder every day how we became so helpless we lost our ability to make wise choices about how to turn this sad situation around.   But enough of us have to want it badly enough to do something about it, but doing so involves letting go of the “helpful” hand of the government.

    And, no, I’m not leaving out the Judeo-Christian Biblical rules for conduct, which always and forever transcends anything that has come after.  But many of us are so captivated by the second set of truths here that the Bible was the first thing people put down in order to grab for all they could get with both hands. From a nation of stalwart patriots and heroes, scientists, explorers and inventors, we have deliberately and sleepily turned ourselves into one of whiners, wimps, and largesse-clutchers. We have, sadly, become a country of people who will do anything it takes to make sure we don’t lose our places on the government nipples.  This is not just uncharacteristic of Americans.  It is downright DANGEROUS.

    Are we embarrassed yet?

  • Those Were The Days

    September 3, 2015

    Time was when we could believe the things we heard on the news. I was pretty young, but I do remember when newscasters and reporters simply reported the news and allowed the listener or reader to formulate their own opinions.

    Time was when turkey for Thanksgiving cost 4 cents a pound, too. And a package of cranberries for that meal was a full pound. Now, it’s about 12 ounces. Same for coffee. But still at one-pound prices, of course.

    Time was when we could put a dollar’s worth of gas in an empty gas tank and Get half a tankful.

    But, was there ever a time when we could trust our government to actually have our best interests at heart, or has it always had the shadow personality that exists to insure and expand its existence? Americans have been led down the primrose path for over a hundred years, as politicians and consultants, lobbyists, crooked officeholders and officials, greedy diplomats, and all their sycophants work out the best ways to fool us into supporting them in their double-dealing one more time.

    Time was when we would have done something about that, too.

  • Hell-Bent

    August 15, 2015

    14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chron 7:14)

    There is a saying out there to the effect that “countries tend to get the kind of government they ask for and deserve.” Of course, as individual Americans, there are millions of Americans who really don’t deserve the destructive, vindictive, hateful government that currently occupies our Capitol, but we do suffer for the actions of the marxists who deliberately put it into place. This “government” has been hell-bent (literally and figuratively) on the destruction of the Constitution for years, and are closer to their goal today than at any point in our history.

    As a nation, we appear to be getting what we deserve, even though there are millions of real Americans who are desperately fighting against the evil designs of the marxists in government and media.

    These marxist tools have asked, nay, BEGGED, for a nannystate, and forced it onto people who did not wish to be ruled by it. By destroying the middle-class economy, the current regime has deliberately forced millions of formerly hard-working people to beg for handouts from the government. The marxists have demanded a military full of unreliable people of dubious proclivities, and WE got it, in spite of the few remaining personnel in our military forces who wish only to have the opportunity to defend the oath they took when they were sworn in.

    What we got for the desires of these spurious legislators is a dictocrat marxist closet muslim who is so anti-Constitutional that he has even managed to persuade democrat governors of several states to join him, not just in trampling the Constitution, but going around Congress and ruling by fiat, regardless of the desires of voters. This group has deliberately and unConstitutionally thwarted the will of the people in forcing o-care through congress to signature without due process or debate (according to plan), and in deliberate defiance of the fact that the people were unanimously opposed to such a sweeping usurpation of their power as previously self-governing free citizens.

    So, apparently, it will be left to the believers to follow the scripture verse above, and fall on our knees in contrition before the Lord God; admitting our own part in this through our past inaction, and begging for mercy for America and for our children’s children, who will be left with the burden of consequence from these past sorry choices.

  • Itchy Is As Itchy Does

    August 12, 2015

    The old Legion of Decency list had listings for movie ratings from “A” (no objectionable content) through “B” (Older kids and grownups), and “C” (Some objectionable content. Not recommended) and “D” (Condemned. Not suitable for any audicence). Families who had this list in place carefully consulted it before seeing any movie.

    Even today, although the Legion is no more, little messages pop up on videos and television to remind us that what we are about to see is not fit for children and other sensitive individuals. Movies are sorted according to violence, language, and sexual content in order to protect children from the obvious evil that these things contain. (Moot questions follow: Why should we have to warn people against evil in a movie? Why do we have movies that contain evil in the first place? If movies are for entertainment, why put blood, evil, and ugliness in them? And, if there wasn’t an itch for evil in humans, why are some of today’s movies so AWFUL??)

    We are taught what is illustrated so clearly in the Bible and other religious writings: Human beings are born with an itch towards evil. Even primitive cultures understand this, and have strict moral laws that carry heavy penalties if broken. Without proper care, teaching, and molding, we grow up to be amoral and perverse. Religious training teaches us that this itch can be mastered with diligence, but that it must be caught at an early age. Starry-eyed liberals and their followers, however, continually maintain that human nature is already “good” and perfectible without spiritual guidance, and it is only circumstances or bad influences that make these “good” people do bad things.

    Consider the ghastly spectacles of children killing younger children for sport. The young killers don’t really understand that their victims will not get up again to “appear in the next movie,” they understand their actions well enough to finish the job. Just because juvenile murderers don’t really comprehend the meaning and ramifications of the evil acts they do doesn’t mean the acts themselves are not evil.

    Or, if evil is what people want, how about aborting babies and selling their little corpses off piecemeal to the highest bidders, for “scientific research?” And the abortionists do realize they are killing children (“It’s another boy!”), but choose to ignore the utter evil of the deed, and focus on the money.

    In some states, parents are forbidden by law to discipline their children in ways meaningful enough to the child to train them away from potentially evil behavior, a classic example of childless do-gooders meddling in something about which they know absolutely nothing. In the same school, perhaps, a jaded teacher is showing sex techniques to second graders and encouraging them to experiment on each other. And, a parent whose hands are tied is not going to be effective in keeping his child from the destructive and evil behaviors that lurk in the minds of every human being. Even wild animals, understanding the importance of obedience, punish their young with painful discipline, but American parents are forbidden to do so.

    Witness, too, the recent mandate from Washington that all Catholic and Christian institutions provide insurance that offers free abortion and contraception to patients and employees. Somehow, the bureaucrats got the idea they could just ignore the sanctity of life, as well as sexuality. I choose to call this move “evil.”

    If, as many believe, there is no absolute good or bad, where does evil come from? Where does good come from? Why are we so easily tempted to evil and why is good so hard to achieve? As one who is a firm believer in the Absolute Good, I know exactly how easily we can be tempted to evil. Evil isn’t just about bad movies, or pornography, or child abuse. It is a streak in all of us that must be suppressed in a civil society.

    We have learned, with varying degrees of success through the centuries, to deal with evil as best we know how, and the only successes we can count are those that rely on Judeo-Christian moral principles, well-taught. Hearts are fertile for love and hate, and as civilized humans on this earth, we must reach out for the civilizing love and eschew the itch for evil that lurks so shallowly under the surface of each of our hearts.

    I fear to contemplate what humans would be like without God, without the REAL Grace that He provides to us for the taking, and the Love that is stronger than death.

  • No “Maybe” About It

    July 26, 2015

    Why is it so hard for leftists to understand a “Right-wing Christian” stand regarding Life? It’s fairly straightforward: Innocent life = good, to be protected. Convicted murderer = evil, remove from society. Seems like the Lefties have it backwards. They want to kill the babies and helpless and protect the murderers on death row. Did I leave anything out? I told you it was straightforward, so, what’s to quibble?

    It’s obvious from their rhetoric that Lefties don’t take the time to look any deeper into the mindset of Christians or those pro-life people on the Right than the superficial observation of the apparent dichotomy in the Christian/Right stand. And it’s a virtual certainty that they probably haven’t read much more of the Bible than Genesis 1:1.

    But, since Leftists believe that Christians are mentally defective, it’s no surprise that they don’t delve any deeper than they do into Christian beliefs and the Bible. It is sufficient, they believe, to skim, scan, and give a quick once-over to what makes Christians believe that innocent life is sacred. That’s why they always get it wrong.

    And, we know more about them and the way they think than they do about us, because unlike them, we are interested in what makes our attackers tick. They couldn’t care less about why we are like we are. The important thing is that we ARE, and we’re opposed to them. That’s all they need to know.

    We read their press releases, we are familiar with their manifestoes and their mindset, because they dominate the airwaves, the print press, and university professorships. We are exposed to their propaganda on a daily basis, while they seldom give the things we believe in a thought, beyond scoffing at it and ridiculing it. They are sure that they know all that is necessary about us to prove that we are all a bunch of “poorly-educated and easily-led” trailer-park knuckle-draggers. That kind of belief doesn’t need more than a superficial perusal to inform them that people who believe in the sanctity of innocent life are deranged, ignorant fools.

    The Left’s favorite question regarding the value of innocent life is, “How can you Christian zealots claim to be pro-life, yet be so determined to execute criminals on death row? And, how can you be pro-war?”

    To a Christian, such a question is simplistic and sophomoric. We have studied this question again and again since grade school catechism classes. If we must quantify, just how hard is it for people to tell the difference between the value of an innocent life and the life of a sociopath?

    Can the Left honestly say they are equal? There is no “equivalent life” in the Bible, which they seem to think contains the concept, more evidence of their unfamiliarity with the Book. Most people with brains stop short of calling Christians to account on the basis of the very Book that the majority of believing Christians often know from front to back. Dumb move by the Leftists. In their condescending hubris, they seem to have some kind of idea that Christians must have missed the part in the Bible about “all human life” being equal in value.

    But the fact is that the Bible repeatedly comments on the difference in value between the lives of the innocent and those of the murderous guilty. Jesus knows the difference, so why is it so hard for the Leftists? In their confusion, they demonstrate, write, and complain. They have “teach-ins,” they do workshops, demonstrate against “the Man,” and rest in the assurance that their opinion is the only right one.

    The Bible tells Christians that God knows what to do with people like murderers, despots, terrorists, and the unregenerate evildoer. A just war simply helps such killers come to that judgment a little sooner than they might otherwise.

    Leftists are not only ignorant about the morality of innocent life, but invincibly so. They have taken up their stand on the side of preserving the life of death row criminals, and firmly against preserving the lives of countless unborn babies in danger of abortion. They appear convinced that this proves how compassionate and loving they are. It doesn’t matter that they face off against the innocent life in the womb. If, as they say, all life is equal, then they should be in the front lines fighting against the evil of abortion, as well as lighting their candles in the wind for criminals on their way to the death chamber.

    (“Population control” is not even a worthwhile argument, since it is much too easy to disprove. They should be ashamed to trot this sorry thing out, and “a woman’s right to choose” is another straw dog, used willy-nilly to illustrate their deep compassion. Never mind that nobody asked that butchered baby what IT thought of overpopulation…)

    The Left firmly believes that there are no moral absolutes in society. What’s wrong for you may be right for me. Your murder of me could be a “loving” act. The only absolute in their mindset is that there are no absolutes. They rationalize and equivocate, and can’t even say a firm “Yes,” or “No,” without a string of qualifiers and footnotes. Bill Clinton illustrated this perfectly in his Grand Jury testimony, when he boldly and without embarrassment pronounced, “It depends on what the meaning of ‘IS’ is.” Unable to even define a simple preposition, they call their waffling and equivocation “reasonable,” and “just,” when the truth is, they are simply afraid to take a principled stand.

    Life is one of those topics that people are very seldom undecided on. Today’s technology shows us unborn babies at younger and younger ages, sucking their thumbs, having hiccups when they are two inches long, having brain waves and heartbeats, and feeling pain at extremely early ages. A 22-week-old baby is being rescued by desperate efforts in the nursery, while just down the hall, another child of the same age is being torn limb from limb in its mother’s womb, so it can be sold off piecemeal on the “fetal tissue” market. The “deciding factor between the two babies is nothing more than convenience or the child’s “wantednes.”

    Abortion, to a Leftist, is not only an acceptable activity, but next to the concept of “fairness” is the Holy Grail of Leftist belief. These are the same people who will stand in the rain and the dark outside the penitentiary to show their solidarity with a serial murderer/rapist who is going to get his life judged that very night. At least, this guilty man had a life, which is much more than can be said for the 55,000,000 plus babies slaughtered since Roe v. Wade.

    Moral equivalency is the left’s long suit. But when it comes to abortion, there is no doubt about where they stand: Always on the side of death. No “maybe” about it.

  • The Consequences Of Meek Submission

    June 30, 2015

    I read somewhere many years ago that the socialists had an axiom about America: “First, we will de-moralize them, then we will defeat them.” They meant, of course, to undermine every rule and tradition that had to do with decency and morality. Observing the events in America in the past couple of years has proved that they have almost accomplished their goal.

    In the past 30 years or so, it has been possible to see America’s regression, and to observe the slide into the slime. First, we meekly let the left throw God out of virtually every aspect of our daily lives. Then, because they were so noisy and litigious about it, we submissively allowed them to prevail to the point where, today, we dare not exhibit or profess any belief in God the Father or Jesus Christ for fear of lawsuits, ostracism, loss of employment, and violence.

    With God out of the picture, the next thing to go was morals in public. Young people began to exhibit more and more skin as fashions changed. In the “olden days,” if it was a part of the anatomy that needed to be covered by a bathing suit, it was not to be exposed to public view. Soon, crop-tops, short-shorts, fishnet, Victoria’s Secret pushup bras, sex toys, and and candy-flavored lubricants took the place of modesty. Playboy and Hustler took to the courts to demand that they be allowed to be displayed next to Field and Stream and Good Housekeeping. Before long, even small children were being sexualized. Schools were forced by federal rules to teach only government-approved curricula, and practical sexuality was taught in classrooms as low as second grade. Clothing manufacturers delighted in turning four- and five-year-olds into sex objects, and soon, baby beauty contests sprang up all over the country, and we meekly went along with it.

    After the de-moralization was well under way, the revisionist histories picked up steam. “Green” was the new law of the land. Curly light bulbs that gave off a sickly green light and were environmental hazards themselves were mandated, along with unflushable toilets with tiny tanks, “smart” meters on our electricity, and recycling bins became the order of the day. Legislatures across the country meekly went along with this and forced citizens to comply with foolish environmental laws for the sake of “saving the environment,” and environmentalists and other assorted ignormauses worshipped the earth as “Gaia.” God’s removal from the minds and hearts of the people was virtually complete.

    Old, reliable history, civics, and science textbooks were discarded for newspeak tomes moaning about the evils of AGW (man-caused global warming) and losing the ozone layer; demanding that Americans comply with environmental “laws” put into place to force American businesses to subsidize the undermining of free markets and capitalism all around the world. Population control and abortion on demand were emphasized from the environmental point of view, and have now become a virtual sacrament to the environmentalists, and we remained meek.

    Newscasters took up the call, and trumpeted global warming in every way, shape, and manner possible, and blamed it all on big oil, and control of the food supply soon followed, with half the annual harvest of corn being diverted into spurious “ethanol” projects, while the world began to starve. And we meekly went along with it.

    Next, immigration laws were ignored, axed, and turned on their heads. Sovereign national borders were allowed to deteriorate, and churches (even whole cities) meekly became sanctuaries for the hordes of illegal aliens that poured into America. Among these illegals were many who did not have America’s best interests at heart, and were coming to do her harm. Nobody paid attention to the complaints of the few Americans who could still think and see the big picture.

    Driving God from the public discourse, from the formulation and execution of laws, from courthouses and even churches, has done this to America. We have done this to ourselves. We have forced God from our lives because we have turned to sin, and we do not wish to have His holiness as a conviction of our choices. We are spiritual criminals and fugitives now, fleeing from His laws and trying to find places and situations where, we hope fruitlessly, He cannot follow. We have encouraged inferior philosophies to usurp God’s place in America, and we have meekly backed down when accused, instead of firmly standing our ground and speaking up for God, and for America.

    Judging by the deterioration in American life in the last seven or eight years, especially, it’s pretty obvious that a willingness to let ourselves be bamboozled and manipulated, a loss of moral rectitude, spiritual grounding, patriotism, and fiscal responsibility, are the consequences of our determined plan to see God and holiness removed from all aspects of our daily life. We, in 2015, are reaping what we have sown since 1965, and our posterity will be paying the price for our stupidity and sin for generations to come. We have brought this national calamity upon ourselves, and we are the ones responsible for finding ourselves wallowing and floundering in a life of steadily declining industry, prosperity, morality, and joy.

    There is only one real remedy for this disaster. America MUST turn back to God. Americans must go back to church, and keep going back. They need to start tithing to the work of whatever church they attend. When they pray, they should mean every word. They must learn to trust God to give His best. (He has a track record on this…) They must teach children to love Him, with Him as the head of their households, and refuse the tawdry lures of this bent and twisted culture. It’s time to put God and decency back into all aspects of public life and display. We must demand that the entertainment industry restore decency and upright behavior in movies and television.

    This is THE ONLY WAY we can turn it around. A spiritual, supernatural solution is now the only thing that will work to save this republic.
