The Passion of the Left: Hating Christians (and Jews)




CrossPosted From: christian-underground.com

If viewers happened to be tuned into CSPAN several weeks ago, they were in for quite a spectacle. CSPAN was re-airing a conference that took place in May of 2005 with the ominous title, “Examining the Real Agenda of the Far Religious Right.”

Sponsored by the New York Open Center, the conference was anything but open-minded. Instead, participants launched into a litany of complaints against the so-called Christian Right that bordered on bigotry. I half expected it to end with a pitchfork armed mob breaking down the doors of a local church.

Perusing the Open Center’s website, one will find the sort of New Age psychobabble melded with eastern mysticism and apocalyptic environmentalism that is common on the left these days. Having been taught by multiculturalism to hate their own western religious background, they turn instead to the east. It just goes to show you that people need to believe in something.

Those who run the Open Center obviously believed they were enlightened in holding their anti-Christian confab, but elitist would be more like it. Every time a speaker referred to a particular Christian belief or quoted a remark they found particularly inflammatory, the audience snickered knowingly, as if to say, “what a fool.” Obviously, the secular fundamentalists of the Open Center consider themselves far more reasonable than those nutty Christians. But judging by the level of paranoia expressed at the conference, I wouldn’t bet on it.

At one point, a speaker spoke about the need “to save democracy” from the “Christian Right,” to which the audience broke out in applause. An associate professor of comparative studies equated the zeal of the “Christian Right” with that of “suicide bombers.” A former Pentecostal minister gave a presentation titled, “Christian Jihad,” while someone claimed to unveil, “The Real Hidden Religious Agenda: The Theocratic States of America.” For those suffering under such delusions, evangelical Christians are indeed the biggest threat to America and the entire world for that matter. Meanwhile, actual threats from a different religion go unnoticed.

Not once during the conference was it mentioned that the real suicide bombers are Islamists who have been killing innocent civilians all over the world. Call me crazy, but isn’t the zealot who’s actually acting on his beliefs just a tad scarier than the one who’s simply talking about it? Anyway, in a democratic society, belief does not equal theocracy.

Islamists on the other hand, are actively pushing a system that hearkens back to the 7th Century and they’re not taking no for an answer. To compare this approach to that of American citizens simply exercising their democratic rights is beyond ludicrous.

The conference attendees seemed particularly concerned with Christians who believe literally in the Book of Revelations, The End Days, The Rapture, Armageddon and so on. They labeled such beliefs Dominionism and decried its real or imagined influence. They spoke menacingly about Tim LaHaye’s “Left Behind” series and referred to its “surprising popularity.” The fact that 82% of the country is Christian seems not to have come under consideration. Much like those who lament the popularity of conservative talk radio as if it weren’t simply a case of supply and demand, the Left is simply in denial about the nature of their country.

Lest it be thought that Christians were the sole objects of wrath, “Neoconservatives” or in other words Jews, were also reviled.

Apparently, it’s the Christians and the Jews that are the problem.

The funny thing is that’s exactly what the Islamists are always saying.

And that’s exactly why some of us are so concerned with maintaining that bulwark of Western civilization, the Judeo-Christian alliance. At precisely the time that Jews, Christians and all those interested in advancing democracy should be banding together in the face of a fascistic and totalitarian threat, the Left would have us hasten our demise.

It’s no coincidence that as Christianity has declined in the West, Islam has been ascendant. Whether through demographics in Europe or ideological sway in America, Islam is clearly on the rise. In an ironic twist you couldn’t make up if you tried, the attacks of 9/11 seem actually to have helped this along. The number of Muslim converts is growing, with disaffected secularists being ripe for the picking.

Meanwhile, Saudi money continues to pour into the coffers of U.S. institutions and to taint future generations with the stain of Wahhabism.

The left flank in the battle against Christianity certainly hasn’t been neglected. The fact that President Bush is a man of faith has upped the ante for the left and they’ve been in anti-Christian overdrive ever since his election. While organizations such as the ACLU and Americans United for Separation of Church and State were doing damage long before Bush’s presidency, the campaign to erase Christianity from American public life has reached new heights in the past six years. This combined with the encroachments of Islamism has led to an ideological battle in which Christianity finds itself on the defensive.

Although almost a year ago, the attitudes expressed by leftist attendees at the Open Center conference have if anything magnified in the time since. A recent article by Bill Moyers demonstrated the same anti-Christian fervor, complete with references to the “rapture index.” Moyers’ main bone of contention is that evangelical Christians somehow threaten environmentalism. Never mind terrorism, it’s the specter of global warming we should be worried about.

Then there’s the new television show, The Book of Daniel, which portrays an Episcopal priest and his family as a collection of druggies, perverts and sociopaths. When NBC’s Nashville affiliate chose not to run the show due to the large number of complaints from viewers, those on the left immediately cried, “censorship.” To them, not publicizing one of their pet projects is tantamount to banning it.

Yet Christians are not taking the abuse lying down. Groups such as the American Center for Law and Justice, The Alliance Defense Fund and others have had great success tackling the legal front. The recent hoopla over the “war on Christmas” was really generated by the Left, which is simply outraged that Christians are now fighting back. Jews Against Anti-Christian Defamation have jumped into the fray as well, demonstrating that Christians are not alone in this struggle. The secularists’ attempts at bullying are in fact starting to have the opposite effect and Christianity in America is now stronger than ever. I certainly hope so, for in civilizational battles, those that cease to believe in anything tend to fall by the wayside. And if people aren’t willing to fight for their civilization, there’s always someone waiting in the wings that is.

The ACLU's Hypocritical Legacy

Crossposted from Stop The ACLU

Convincing liberals that the ACLU is leading us down a dangerous path is about as productive as talking to a rock. Perhaps this is because I mostly deal with far left liberals who share the same insane views and have the same radical agenda as the ACLU. Anyone who believes that the ACLU is there to purely defend the Constitution is naive at best. Surely there are some moderate liberals out there that can concede that the organization is in need of reform.

A balanced society can not survive resting in the fringe. A Nation only concerned with security will drift toward a police state, and one that follows the absolutist views of liberty like the ACLU will drift toward anarchy.

The ACLU proudly display a banner that states, Keep America Safe and Free, but any honest person will admit that the ACLU have done nothing for the safety of America. As a matter of fact, all evidence leads to quite the opposite. The ACLU are always ready to put the security of America at risk in the pursuit of its absolutist views of liberty.

Many of the ACLU's former leaders have noticed the irresponsible shifting of the ACLU away from true civil liberty protection into a much more dangerous agenda. For example take the words of this former Executive Director of the ACLU

The right to express unpopular opinions, advocate despised ideas and display graphic images is something the ACLU has steadfastly defended for all of its nearly 80-year history.

But the ACLU, a group for which I proudly worked as executive director of the Florida and Utah affiliates for more than 10 years, has developed a blind spot when it comes to defending anti-abortion protesters. The organization that once defended the right of a neo-Nazi group to demonstrate in heavily Jewish Skokie, Ill., now cheers a Portland, Ore., jury that charged a group of anti-abortion activists with $107 million in damages for expressing their views. Gushed the ACLU's press release: "We view the jury's verdict as a clarion call to remove violence and the threat of violence from the political debate over abortion."

Were the anti-abortion activists on trial accused of violence? No. Did they threaten violence? Not as the ACLU or Supreme Court usually defines it, when in the context of a call for social change.

The activists posted a Web site dripping with animated blood and titled "The Nuremberg Files," after the German city where the Nazis were tried for their crimes. Comparing abortion to Nazi atrocities, the site collected dossiers on abortion doctors, whom they called "baby butchers." ...

This is ugly, scary stuff. But it is no worse than neo-Nazi calls for the annihilation of the Jewish people, or a college student posting his rape fantasies about a fellow coed on the Web, both of which the ACLU has defended in the past.

None of the anti-abortion group's intimidating writings explicitly threatened violence. Still, the ACLU of Oregon refused to support the defendants' First Amendment claims. Instead, it submitted a friend-of-the-court brief taking no one's side but arguing that speech constitutes a physical threat only when the speaker intends his statement to be taken as one.

...Before anti-abortion zealots started getting sued, the ACLU had much more tolerance for menacing speech. Few of the 20th century's great social movements were entirely peaceable. The labor, civil-rights, antiwar, environmental and black-power movements were an amalgam of violence, civil disobedience and highly charged rhetoric. But to gag fiery speakers who call for harm to the establishment because others in the movement pursue their political goals with fists, guns or bombs would do terrible damage to strong, emotive pleas tot social change. It is something neither the ACLU nor, thankfully, the courts have countenanced in the past.

That's why in 1969 the ACLU helped defend a Ku Klux Klan member who had called for violence against the president, Congress and the Supreme Court. At the ACLU's urging, the Supreme Court ruled that speech advocating violence was constitutionally protected unless it incited imminent lawless action and was likely to produce such action. This case was later used to defend the speech of black militants.

The ACLU also applauded a 1982 Supreme Court decision that found that speeches promising violent reprisals were protected by the First Amendment. During the civil-rights movement, a leader of the NAACP called for "breaking the necks" of blacks who violated a boycott of white-owned businesses in Mississippi, and published a list of those who did. Some of the boycott violators were beaten. The court ruled that despite the atmosphere of fear, all the speeches and lists were part of a debate on a public issue that needed to be "uninhibited, robust, and wide-open."


I would argue that the Constitution doesn't protect all of these extreme positions of the ACLU, but that isn't the point he is trying to make. The issue is the ACLU's curious commitment to "uninhibited, robust, and wide-open" free speech when it involves things such as virtual child pornography, but not when it involves a something like a boss making racially offensive statements.

Unfortunately, there are some people who are so hypnotized by the ACLU's absolutist views and of the ACLU's campaign for pedophilia and child pornography that they are prepared to defend an organization that has become a shadow of its former self--a group that lets its idealistic and skewed understanding of the establishment clause trump freedom of religion and freedom of speech.


Stop the ACLU had the opportunity last year of interviewing a former ACLU lawyer. He was concerned with much of the same things.

The ACLU played a helpful role in the civil rights movement defending these people, and I can’t turn my back on that. I have to give credit where credit is due.” “But….that being said, what they have done in the past is completely eviscerated by what they do in the present. The ACLU has become a fanatical anti-faith Taliban of American religious secularism.”

“The ACLU is involved in the secular cleansing of our history. This is not just a fight about free exercise, but about the protection of our American history. The ACLU want to deny America the knowledge of their Christian heritage.”


It seems that the many of the ACLU's greatest critics came from their very ranks. The division within the ACLU will continue as long as the ACLU continues on the irresponsible, hypocritical path it is on. America needs a civil liberties union, sadly the ACLU isn't doing that job. If the ACLU succeeds in the dangerous direction it is steering America, they will ironically be putting in jeapordy the very liberty they claim to protect.

America's Greatest President Ever


Ronald Reagan, the fortieth President of the United States of America, and by far the greatest President that ever served this nation from the Oval Office. A man who stood by what he believed, stood firmly upon his faith, and endured great critisism because of it.

Ronald Reagan was formerly an hollywood actor turned polititian. He served the state of Califonia as Governor, elected in 1966, and again in 1970. Reagan was elected President in 1980 following the 4 year long fiasco of the Carter Administration. The good citizens of America were sick and tired of high inflation, and not to mention the conflict involving the nation of Iran where American citizens were being held hostage by terrorists.

One of his big things he is remebered for is 'Reganomics'!

Reagan started with large across the board tax cuts. "The early Reagan tax cuts of August 1981 embodied Reagan's supply-side economics. Economist Robert J. Gordon writes in his textbook Macroeconomics (9th ed. 2003, p. 392) that this was "the most dramatic shift in fiscal policy of the postwar era not related to the financing of wars.

America experienced greater finacial growth during the reagan years,
  • Real economic growth averaged 3.2 % during the Reagan years versus 2.8 % during the Ford-Carter years and 2.1 % during the Bush-Clinton years.
  • Real median family income grew by $4,000 during the Reagan period after experiencing no growth in the pre-Reagan years; it experienced a loss of almost $1,500 in the post-Reagan years. (source)

President Reagan was a very funny guy, he had a great sense of humor!

"The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'"

"Trees cause more pollution than automobiles."

"Politics is just like show business. You have a hell of an opening, you coast for awhile, you have a hell of a closing."

Anyway you slice the pie, Ronald Reagan was the greatest President this nation has ever seen, and will ever see again. He is dearly missed!

Stop The Genocide!


This is an email I received from the ACLJ regarding the genocidal war that liberals have been waging in America since 1973. How many more helpless and innocent human beings will the American communist regime slaughter in the name of women’s rights, and reproductive freedom before we stop them?

Dear Americans,
On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court of the United States handed down its infamous ruling in the case known as Roe v. Wade.
Within a few days, we'll mark the 33rd anniversary of that sad day, when the high court declared that human children prior to birth are not ''persons'' to be recognized under the Constitution.
The abortion lobby has chosen to ''forget'' the 45 million or more babies who have died since then. Organizations like the National Organization for Women, Planned Parenthood, and NARAL will cheer for the women who exercised their ''freedom.'' The media will beat the drum for ''choice.''
Our commitment to life has been unwavering from the day we launched the American Center for Law and Justice, and it will stand. We will continue to fight:
  1. to preserve the federal ban on partial-birth abortion,

  2. to preserve parent notification laws,

  3. to see conservative, pro-life judges and Justices nominated and confirmed to sit on federal court benches,

  4. to preserve the right to protest abortion peacefully, and

  5. to protect medical-field workers who decline to engage in abortion-related activities.
In fact, just weeks ago, we filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court against a law requiring all Illinois pharmacists to dispense the notorious ''morning after'' pill and other so-called ''emergency contraceptives.'' Pharmacists have actually lost their jobs because they refused to give abortion pills to customers.
And we need your help - because we face opponents with a tremendous array of resources, financial and legal: the ACLU - Planned Parenthood - the National Organization for Women - NARAL - the list goes on.
They will not give up. There are millions of dollars at stake - and little or no concern for the unborn child, whose heart beats innocently in the womb of its mother.

Petition to Indict John Kerry for Treason

We all know what a euro-weenie John Kerry is, lets put a stop to his chances of running in 2008 by tying him up in court for a very long while.

Kerry has a long and well-documented history of providing "aid and
comfort" to the enemy in time of war -- particularly in the case of
North Vietnam, Nicaragua and Cuba. Kerry, by his own account of his
actions and protests, violated the UCMJ, the Geneva Conventions
and the U.S. Code while serving as a Navy officer. Kerry met,
on two occasions, with North Vietnamese negotiators in 1970 and
1971, willingly placing himself in violation of Article three,
Section three of the U.S. Constitution, which defines treason as
"giving aid and comfort" to the enemy in time of warfare.

Kerry was recognized for such "aid and comfort" in 1983, when
he received an award for special contributions to the Communist
victory from the incoming general secretary of the Communist
Party of Vietnam, Comrade Do Moi.
(See photos at http://kerry-04.org/war/record.php ).

Thus, in accordance with the Constitution's Fourteenth
Amendment, Section 3, which states, "No person shall be a
Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President
and Vice-President ... having previously taken an oath ... to
support the Constitution of the United States, [who has] engaged
in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or
comfort to the enemies thereof," We, the People of these United
States, believe John F. Kerry is unfit for public office.

that John Kerry be prosecuted for "giving aid and comfort to the
enemy" and disqualified for national office. Link to --

Liberals Lastest Scheme: Promote Cross-Dressing to Kindergarteners!


Just when we thought we had seen it all, here comes another scheme to promote homosexuality, and indoctrinate children into it's perverse lifestyle. GLSEN along with the help of the National Education Assoc.(NEA)are behind this latest attempt to recruit children into the homosexual community, and they are now marketing this to kindegarteners, little snot nosed 5 yr. olds!

The Book "Jesse's Dream Skirt", a book created by a homosexual parents group at the Buena Vista Elementary School in San Francisco. It includes a lesson based on a children's book titled "Jesse's Dream Skirt."

This book is about confusing the role of male and female genders to cause the children to move toward homosexuality. The goal here is to femanize young males for the future sexual use of adult homosexual males, this is NAMBLA type stuff here!

The attack comes on many fronts. It aims to expose children to sex at earlier and earlier ages... to rob them of their innocence and open them up to immoral and unhealthy practices... to set them up to accept messages of "safe sex" and homosexuality... to usher them into becoming advocates for - and ultimately participants in - sexual promiscuity, sodomy, bisexuality, and transgenderism.

This is the only way sodomites can find new little sex partners, and this is how they plan on building their political power as well, by poisoning the minds of little kids. Like vultures circling their prey, these 'gay' radical activists will stop at nothing to get ahold of the hearts and minds of children.

What will it take to stop them? Parents and people within local communities all across the country taking a BOLD stand, telling their perspective school boards not to allow groups like GLSEN into the local schools, they must NOT be allowed to hold assemblies, or launch any other brain washing programs.

"Radical homosexual activists have long said, "Whoever controls the schools, controls the future." If they can convince the next generation that homosexuality is "just another lifestyle," there will be no stopping
them."


That is just it! Whoever controls the schools, controls the future of this nation. We cannot let these 'lunatic fringe' homosexual activists to rule the roost, our children are far to important to be exposed to such filth, and perversity.

"Armed Security Guard Ejects Mother of Student from School Assembly on Homosexuality"

A mother in St. Louis, Missouri who had heard about an upcoming school assembly being put on by GLSEN had told school officials that she deemed this assembly to be inappropriate. When she showed up at the school to view the assembly, she was forced to leave via an armed security guard. Excuse me! Who pays the bills that build and maintain the schools, and who pays the salaries, and benefits of every school employee?? The tax payers do! There is a reason that they are called "Public Schools", because they belong to the public who pays the bills, not to a bunch of liberal hypocrites, and radicals. This woman's rights were cleary violated, and they had no business blocking her from viewing an assembly. If this is the attitude of school officials, then parents who care about their students should either remove them from the public schools, or fight like mad against this Nazi like suppression of parents rights.

"We know the radical homosexual activists and all their allies intent on corrupting our children will not give up. They think they can lure our children into depravity while we sit by and do nothing."

History has proven that liberals are allows on the wrong side of every issue, and this issue is no different. Liberals gravitate towards what is evil, why they bastardize everything that is good. This is why I say the time has come to abolish liberal socialism once and for all, liberals have gone WAY TO FAR over the falls in their war against tradional moral teaching.

"Sex between adults and children is just the next barrier to be torn down. How long will it take these radical activists to achieve their next evil objective?"

Like a stated earlier, this is NAMBLA type stuff that is now being forced into the school systems of America, much in the same way Nazi's took over Germany's schools and turned them into Nazi training camps for children to condition them, and turn them into good little Nazi's. Like the communist's in the USSR used Russia's schools to teach children how to be good little communists, the same is taking place here in America via the Left Fringe of the culture.

SHOCKING MILITANT HOMOSEXUAL HATE SPEECH!!

MORE INFORMATION: GAY MILITANT INTENT INDEX

United Methodist Denomination takes anti-American Stance

"Some religious officials, such as the late Pope John Paul II, questioned the war in Iraq based on traditional Christian just war teaching. But the United Methodist Council of Bishops has been guided not so much by Christian moral teachings as by anti-Americanism and hard-line neo- pacifism."

(Full article can be read at FrontPageMag.com)
My Comments: What else would one expect from one of the most liberal denominations in America? The United Methodist Church has been liberal for a long time; they have a long history of being on the wrong side of Biblical truth, and morality.
It is no surprise that they would follow after the moveon.org crowd since a large portion of their congregations throughout the country is on the far-left. Not everyone who belongs to the UMC is liberal however; the folks at the American Family Assoc. are affiliated with this denomination, as well as our dear President, George W. Bush.
This is what happens when churches walk away from Biblical truth in favor of societies ideologies. They ought to be ashamed of themselves, but I am sure that they are not!
Anyway, go read the entire article posted at Front Page Magazine!

Modern Liberalism: Missing the Mark with Religion

This is the ideology of Modern Liberalism – what some call dysfunctional morality and others call Statism. It is the religion most closely associated with one of our top two political parties, and the fact that roughly fifty percent of all Americans worship before this alter of state, begging for free food, unjust privileges and endless moral accommodations, stands as a sad testimony of the pathetic state of religion, morality, and education in the United States today.

Counselman Stands Up To ACLU Prayer Censorship

Crossposted from Stop The ACLU

It is happening all across the nation. The ACLU sue city counsel after city counsel over praying in Jesus name. They don't sue to stop all prayer, but in every case the target has been Christian prayer. They even fought for the right of a Wiccan to pray at a counsel meeting. Many times it doesn't even take a lawsuit. They just type up a threatening letter and that does the trick. This was the case in Fredericksburg. But one man isn't taking things lying down.

Fredericksburg City Councilman Hashmel Turner has filed suit against his fellow council members, saying the council’s newly adopted prayer policy violates his constitutional rights.

Turner is being represented by the Rutherford Institute, a nonprofit group that advocates for free expression issues.

The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court in Richmond, asks the court to rule that the city’s prayer policy is unconstitutional, and to order that Turner be allowed back into the council’s prayer rotation.

The council voted 5-1 in November to adopt a policy of offering non-denominational prayers devoid of any Christian or other specific religious references.

Turner abstained from that vote, and Councilman Matt Kelly voted against the policy.

The vote came after Turner had been excluded from the council prayer rotation for more than a year. The council got a letter from the American Civil Liberties Union in July 2004 saying that the civil liberties group would file suit if Turner continued to invoke the name of Jesus Christ in his prayers.

Turner, who is pastor at First Baptist Church of Love in Fredericksburg, had always closed his prayers before council meetings by invoking the name of Jesus Christ before the ACLU complaint.

On the same night of the November vote for the nondenominational prayer policy, Turner asked to be put back into the prayer rotation, and to give the opening prayer before the Nov. 22 council meeting.

Mayor Tom Tomzak said today he asked Councilwoman Debby Girvan to give the prayer at that meeting instead of Turner, because, “I did not want to unleash a 1,000-pound gorilla-the ACLU-on the City Council.”

However, Tomzak said he does believe Turner’s rights are being violated, and the suit filed today is “a lawsuit that I probably agree with.”

“He’s a very passionate man, a man of faith and a man of principle, and he believes his rights have been violated,” Tomzak said of Turner.

Neither City Council members nor City Attorney Kathleen Dooley had seen copies of the lawsuit earlier today.

The suit calls the new prayer policy “an unlawful attempt by the City Council to prescribe the content of prayers given at City Council meetings by Turner and other members of City Council.”

John Whitehead, president of the Rutherford Institute, said Turner approached his organization last fall, saying he believed his rights were being violated. “All he wants is to say Jesus Christ at the end of the prayer,” Whitehead said. “He’s not asking for any money. ... It’s a very simple suit.”


One would think that it would be simple, yet the ACLU don't seem to get that. Religious expression in America is under attack. It is a shame that an organization that claims to protect our rights are the number one censor of Christian religious expression. If they were trying to get rid of all prayer at counsel meetings, we would have a different argument, but they are targeting Christian prayers and individual expression. It is good to see this man is standing up for his rights. More people should do so.

Currently there is legislation, introduced by Representative Hostettler that could put a stop to these ridiculous lawsuits. Hostettler’s proposal would amend the Civil Rights Attorney’s Fees Act of 1976, 42 U.S.C. Section 1988, to prohibit prevailing parties from being awarded attorney’s fee in religious establishment cases, but not in other civil rights filings. This would prevent local governments from having to use taxpayer funds to pay the ACLU or similar organization when a case is lost, and also would protect elected officials from having to pay fees from their own pockets.

The Lunatic Fringe: Left wing haters at it again!


This article is a must read! It lists the whose who of the "Lunatic Fringe" of American culture, the left wing "God Hating", "America Hating" radicals that pose the greatest danger to faith and freedom! The Article is hosted at: Front Page Magazine

Great minds who Acknowledged God and the Christian Faith

Patrick Henry: "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here."

Henry stated boldly that America was not founded by mere religious persons, but by Christians, and upon the Gospel of Christ!

Many today want to divide the Christian faith from Government and Law, but John Quincy Adams stated this: “The highest glory of the American Revolution was this: it connected, in one indissoluble bond, the principles of civil government with the principles of Christianity."

Atheists want to remove all references to the God of the Bible and Christianity through the misuses of the courts and the legal system.

Thomas Jefferson stated: “Can the liberties of a nation be thought secure, when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that they are a gift of God? Indeed, I tremble for my countrymen, when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever."

Calvin Coolidge
“The foundations of our society and our government rest so much on the teachings of the Bible that it would be difficult to support them if faith in these teachings would cease to be practically universal in our country.”

Abraham Lincoln
had a few poignant words that are still for us today, take heed: “We have grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us! It behooves us, then, to humble ourselves to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.”

Here is a quote from a fellow I never heard of before, but it’s a good one

“Even those who have renounced Christianity and attack it, in their inmost being still follow the Christian ideal, for hitherto neither their subtlety nor the ardour of their hearts has been able to create a higher ideal of man and of virtue than the ideal given by Christ of old.


Fyodor Dostoyevsky


Our nation, our very system of law, our freedom and liberties all founded on God and the Bible, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Anyone who would refuse to acknowledge this is being dishonest, and showing their absolute ignorance, it doesn't take a huge amount of intelligence to realize that this nation was founded on the principles of the Bible.

Communists, Liberal Control Freaks, and Big Government

Do you find yourself asking why the left-wingers want to control every aspect of your personal life?

Why they find it necessary to pass legislation that constricts your freedoms?

There is a simple explanation for this, they are communists at heart, and communism always seeks to control people through the use of big, powerful government. Have you noticed that the left loves big government? That they have used it for years to control certain groups of people within the culture through the welfare program, you know, free money for doing absolutely nothing positive in society, have another kid, and get more free money. After all, it’s for the children, right? Wrong, it’s to buy votes from the poor and minority classes that the liberal commie-crats pretend to care about, so that they can gain more political power.

Like a noose around the neck of every God fearing, patriotic American, the Communists among us have begun to institute their devilish plan of total control. I believe that if they succeed in their quest that the constitution will be no more, a thing of the past, and our rights will be all gone. We would be subject to a form of socialism where there is no such thing as freedom of speech, freedom of religion, or any other type of freedom for that matter. If you want to know what this would look like just do a little research on the old Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR), see how parents had no rights over what there children were taught in the government run schools-sound familiar?. Food and medicine were in short supply-and millions died because of it, only the elite ruling class who controlled everything had access to these things. Christians were either killed, tortured, or exiled to concentration camps along with anyone else that did not agree with the government, this is happening today in China and other nations around the world as well.

I am afraid that America is already on the fast track to becoming a socialistically controlled communist state, and it is happening right before the eyes of the American people, and they either don’t care, or are to stupid to realize it. American Socialists, which includes many within the ranks of the Democratic Party, and now the Republican Party are passing bad legislation that is geared towards removing the constitutional rights from under America’s citizens, and they are doing it incrementally so the American people won’t notice what is happening until it is too late.

They say that is you throw a frog into a pot of boiling water that he will jump right out of the pot because he feels the burn of the boiling water, but if you place him in a pot of cool water, place it on the burner, and allow the water to heat to boiling, he will sit there until he is boiled to death. This is in essence what is taking place here in America, ever so slowly the communists in congress are taking away our freedoms, little by little, why they tell us what they are doing is constitutional, the laws they pass violates the constitutional rights of the majority of American, giving more power to liberal elitists so that they can further control what we can do, say, and/or think.

Here are some examples of what I am talking about; Hillary Clinton wants to control the internet, mostly internet journalists who disagree with her agendas.,.

Hate Crimes legislation that criminalizes the thoughts a person has, they want to tell you what you can and can’t think..

Ultimately the Bible itself will be illegal! You can bet Bibles will be confiscated from the private citizens, already liberal groups are branding the Bible as “hate speech”, it is only a matter of time before they try to pass laws aimed at making owning a Bible a crime in itself.

They want to take away the law abiding citizens right to keep and bear arms, thereby disarming the citizenry so they can no longer defend themselves against tyranny, so when they move to destroy the constitution all together, and bring in a new socialist system of government, no one can stop them. Here is a quote from Vladimir Lenin, the well known ex-leader of the USSR “A system of licensing and registration is the perfect device to deny gun ownership to the bourgeoisie."

Liberal communists do not like any type of opposition to their agendas, and fear the conservative’s political power because when conservatives get energized, liberals always loose. Democrats (commie-crats) try to disguise what they really believe, and what their real agendas are, because mainstream America won’t buy into their far-left ideas, so they hide the truth in hopes of getting elected, and then they show their true selves. We have a perfect example of how American communists hate opposition, just look at the agenda of the homosexual regime in America, how they cannot stand it when anyone speaks ill of them, so they have created a battle plan to virtually take over America by mainstreaming their perverse sexual behavior. This is where hate crimes laws become the political tool of the gay community to silence those who disagree and oppose them, they cant control free speech any other way than to use the power of big government to force us all into submission to their twisted agenda.

American atheists have been in the news lately as they are taking direct aim at destroying the foundation of Americas Christian heritage. The latest example is the suit filed by Michael Newdow to forcibly remove “In God We Trust” from our currency. The push for the total secularization of the culture is in high gear as evangelical atheists are working overtime to derail America for good. Newdow has filed other suits previously, one to remove the words “One Nation Under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance, and others. There has been a rash of attacks by American atheists to remove crosses, nativities, and other Christian symbols from public view. The problem here is that other religious symbols seem to be left alone, especially Islamic symbols, and some Jewish symbols as well. These attacks are aimed specifically at Christian symbols, and why? Because they represent the one true faith, and the one true God, and Savior that liberals and other communists hate more than anything else.

Reading the pages of several anarchists groups it is clear that their goal is for total control of the nation, during the last presidential election anarchists joined forces with several far-left groups to oppose George W. Bush’s re-election campaign, in fact the pro-abortion regime invited the anarchists to join in their march in order to increase their numbers, and to help intimidate those who would counter-protest the so-called march for women’s rights. Anarchists long to bring the government of the United States to ruin so that they can bring in a new age socialist system of government in power, their goals line up somewhat with that of the commie-crats in Washington, and throughout the country, so it is easy to see why they have joined forces. As far as these anarchists go, this is what we get when we leave God out of the educational process, these kids are products of government run, public education, another good reason to home school your kids.

"The term anarchy comes from the Greek, and essentially means 'no ruler.' Anarchists are people who reject all forms of government or coercive authority, all forms of hierarchy and domination. They are therefore opposed to what the Mexican anarchist Flores Magon called the 'sombre trinity' -- state, capital and the church. Anarchists are thus opposed to both capitalism and to the state, as well as to all forms of religious authority. But anarchists also seek to establish or bring about by varying means, a condition of anarchy, that is, a decentralized society without coercive institutions, a society organized through a federation of voluntary associations." ["Anthropology and Anarchism," pp. 35-41, Anarchy: A Journal of Desire Armed, no. 45, p. 38]

Just what America needs a bunch of angry individuals with oppositional defiance disorder in control of the nation, this is what you get when you take God and the Ten Commandments out of the public square, people need order, and God instituted government for a reason, and gave government its authority. That does not mean that everything government does is ok with God, or that governments can just do anything without question. There comes a point in time where a government that is tyrannical towards its citizens must be stopped, or disobeyed if they depart from what is good and moral.

The government of the United States has become too big for its britches, it needs to be reigned in that is for sure. We have seen examples where one branch of government has overstepped its bounds, this is all too apparent when one looks at the judicial branch. We have seen liberal communist judges making new law from the bench, instead of merely interpreting law as they are supposed to do. These judges are in the hip pocket of the far-left, and are pushing a very un-American agenda that most Americans detest. The three branches of government (Executive, Legislative, and Judicial) was created by our founding fathers to maintain balance, and to keep one branch from seizing total control over the nation. Rouge liberal judges have done just that however, they are forcing liberal socialist agenda from the bench; liberal communists in America knew that this is how they could force their agenda for complete control on the rest of the nation, and they have gotten away with it somewhat.

Any way you look at it our freedoms are close to being dissolved, and taken completely away from us, under the disguise of freedom as dictated by liberal communists. The question is, what are you as a God fearing American willing to do to stop it? Maybe we should pay closer attention to the people we vote into public office in the next election? After all, the future of this nation rests upon our actions, what action will we take to reverse the course our nation is headed down? Either we will fight to re-gain our freedoms, or we will sit by why unscrupulous people rob us blind of our constitutional rights, we have the power, we must exercise it. Are your children important enough to you to consider removing them from the government run schools? Should you consider running for public office yourself if there is no good candidate running? Do you love your freedom? Or Do you just take it for granted?

Maybe the time has come for a new anti-communist message to be broadcast across the nation in the spirit of Sen. Joseph McCarthy “ Ladies and gentlemen, can there be anyone tonight who is so blind as to say that the war is not on? Can there by anyone who fails to realize that the Communist world has said the time is now? . . . that this is the time for the show-down between the democratic Christian world and the communistic atheistic world? Considering the previous statement, the I believe the time has come for a showdown, only this time the communists are not overseas, they are right here in our own nation, right under our own noses.

“The real, basic difference, however, lies in the religion of immoralism . . . invented by Marx, preached feverishly by Lenin, and carried to unimaginable extremes by Stalin. This religion of immoralism, if the Red half of the world triumphs—and well it may, gentlemen—this religion of immoralism will more deeply wound and damage mankind than any conceivable economic or political system.”

Sen. McCarthy’s statement here is right on! The left is pushing a religion of immorality, a religion where man is his own God, and there is no Biblical morality allowed, where the Bible and Christians are treated as second class citizens. We are already seeing the results and Conservatives and Christians in America are the target of every hateful group that exists, why is this? It is because Christianity is what stands in the way of their agenda; they can’t take over as long as Christianity is still in full force within the society. Christianity is the preservative force that holds back the dark agendas of evil men who continue to fight against it, hoping to overthrow it and bring in a new age of tolerance. They want to overthrow the church, and ban the Christian influence from permeating public life, it is the only way they can see their evil plans play out, only the removal of God, and the complete secularization of society will allow them to have their way. Those of us who oppose such extreme ideas must stand firm against every wave of immorality that hurl at us, speak up often, and loudly, never shut up!

Finally, our greatest weapon of all if prayer, only with God’s divine intervention can we withstand the fiery arrows of the devil. If God’s people will just pray hard, we can win this culture war and squelch the shrill whining coming from the left. Communism never works! Evil always implodes upon itself!

Only a Republic with God at it’s center can continue to exist, and flourish as a nation. A free people can only remain truly free as long as God and the Bible are respected, and allowed to influence every part of our lives, including government, and politics.
