Governor Fires First Shot In Coming Purge of Conservatives

cuomo

There’s no place for views or beliefs contrary to the Marxist Left Agenda in Cuomo’s New York according to the governor himself.

While this is news from last week, the fact that a sitting governor specifically lists the political and moral beliefs of Conservative Christians as ‘having no place’ in his state – should frighten every American to their core, not just those in his state.  Can the government now decide that if you oppose abortion, revere the Second Amendment and hold to values opposed to MarxoFascism that you must surrender your beliefs or move out the state?  Will this progress to policies that will dictate you cannot work, live or earn a living in New York if you believe in things contrary to the Democrat/Marxist party in power?

This is the mark of a beast.  When the government declares that those who hold to biblical, moral and political values opposed to the party in power ‘have no place’ in their state because ‘that is not who we are’ – then that same government and ideology will transform society into a totalitarian state.  A political ideology that publicly states it will not tolerate dissent is the first stage of a political and physical purge.

History teaches the lesson that this is how genocides begin.  They progress from simple demonization, to advocation of ostracizing which is always quickly followed by criminalization before pograms of eradication are adopted and passed.

America is now well on that path.  This is not just an isolated revelation in New York – but it is a Zeitgeist spreading from Washington throughout the nation.  Our future may well be sealed to this fate.

No Place For Dissent In Cuomo’s New York

In a media interview Friday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo tagged his opponents as “extreme conservatives” and said that they “have no place in New York.”

Who are these “extreme conservatives?” Opponents of gun control, abortion, and homosexual marriage, that’s who:

“The Republican Party candidates are running against the SAFE Act… Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the State of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

Let’s deconstruct this for a moment. New York’s ultra-draconian “SAFE Act” permanently outlawed all military rifles developed in the past sixty years. It created State Police surveillance of all ammunition sales, and a required that the State Police keep a database of all ammunition purchases. It criminalized the possession of firearm magazines that were legally purchased decades ago without compensating the owners. It was passed at 2 A.M. with no committee hearings and no debate. Legislators were given 15 minutes’ notice to vote on a 39 page bill — not enough time to read it. And Cuomo waived a legal requirement that a three-day waiting period for public input occur before the legislation took effect.

And if you think that violates the Second, Fourth, and Fifth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution… you “have no place in the State of New York.”

Do you oppose abortion, which the science of biology absolutely proves kills a nascent human being in utero — largely to maintain culture of reckless promiscuity? Then you’re an “extremist” who has “no place in the State of New York.”

Do you oppose homosexual marriage, which did not exist in any culture in the history of mankind until 20 years ago or so? You extremist! You have “no place in the State of New York.”

The idea that a sitting governor of the fourth-largest state in the nation can tell people he disagrees with politically that they have “no place” in the state he governs is breathtakingly frightening. I cannot recall any American governor anywhere essentially telling American citizens to shut up or get out of his state. What about the constitutional rights to free speech, free association, and freedom of the press? What ever happened to the Madisonian idea that the rights of political minorities are to be protected from the tyranny of the majority? Whatever happened to all the incessant leftist rhetoric about “diversity” and “multiculturalism”? I guess “diversity” doesn’t apply to conservatives, does it?

How is this any different than saying “The Jews have no place in the Fatherland?” How is this any different than saying “The kulaks have no place in the Soviet Union?” “How is this any different than saying “The capitalist pigs have no place in the Peoples’ Republic of Kampuchea”?

Answer: it isn’t different. Every dictatorship marginalizes, delegitimizes, and dehumanizes its opponents before it strips them of their rights and crushes them.

If you’re under the mistaken impression that the U.S. is still a free country, and New York is still a free state… you’d better read Cuomo’s comments again.

God help us.

Christian Prayers And Protests Will Get You Arrested In NYC

Zero Tolerance for Christians in New York compared to Occupy Protests that dragged on for weeks.   Christians arrested on site for praying against the ban on churches meeting in public places.

In a sickening proof that Amerika is become a hostile land for Christians who are no longer welcome or permitted their free exercise.  Last Thursday New York City arrested 43 pastors and laypersons who dared to defy the Established Secular Order and PRAYED in protest about the city’s new ban on Christian use of public places for worship services that goes into effect February 12.

Police were ordered to arrest them all immediately for criminal trespass.  Apparently New York has a Zero Tolerance policy if you kneel and pray in public and are a Christian, but if you are a secular anarchist who likes to shut down businesses and bridges, do drugs, rape and rob people – then you and your Occupy Wall Street pals will go unmolested by the Police for weeks and weeks, while the media rages in protest on their behalf if any of those scum are arrested for their disruptive and violent behavior.

 

 

 

 

 

And If you are Muslim you will get to pray in the streets facing Mecca while blocking traffic to call attention to your protests of America:

 

 

 

 

 

 

But if you are Christian, and are protesting for your Constitutional Right of free exercise from being prohibited by law in public places such as schools, streets and public buildings – if you join hands, kneel and pray – why then – you will be arrested with brute force in moments of your defiance to take a knee and pray.

Christians haves deceived themselves into thinking that injustice and persecution of Christians is something that happens only in far away backward countries.

They would be wrong.  Institutionalized persecution – of which this author has personally witnessed and experienced in a land hostile to Christians, is already having a foundation poured beneath our feet and knees.

It makes no difference who you are if you are Christian, police arrested New York City Councilman and pastor Fernando Cabrera, pastor Bill Devlin, and five others on charges of “criminal trespassing.” Their alleged trespass was kneeling and singing two hymns outside the doors of the New York City Law Department.

 

THAT earns you jail time.  But if you are protesting rich people and businesses and support Communism – then you can set up tents and shut down bridges and take over public spaces without so much as a shout against you by police.

But take a knee and pray in front of a public building in New York – you will get to enjoy plastic hand restraints and a ride in a paddy wagon to the local lock up.

Welcome to Amerika 2012 – your hope and change has arrived.

The Laodecian and Sardis Church in America: Lukewarm or Dead

The Socialized Church in America no longer stands for righteousness and against sin, as it embraces a new morality pushed by Secular Socialists and Marxists. 

 

In preaching and speaking to Christian churches, the discussion often turns to blaming one group of people or another for the woes afflicting our nation.  My response is that the real culprits that deserve blame and should do 2 Chronicles 7:14 are Christians in America who have gone lukewarm and embrace ideas and doctrines that are of the province of Satan, who transformed them into angels of light that the Socialist church has embraced and is spreading.

This entire essay by Pastor Roger Anghis is a must read in it’s entirety and indicts the church in America for their role of being Laodecian or Sardis in attitude towards their faith; either lukewarm or dead.

DeToqueville will be proven a prophet with a warning that Christians have not heeded.

The Apostacy of the Church

By Pastor Roger Anghis

2Timothy 4:2 “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
(3) For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
(4) And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

We have entered into a time where biblical prophecy can be found in the daily news paper on a daily basis. One of the things that is spoken of in scripture is the actions of the ‘social church’ in the last days. The ‘social church’ is not the true church as the true church will hold strong to the precepts of God. The social church will lean heavily towards what society accepts. Today’s society has accepted people living together without the benefit of marriage. In the social church this subject is very rarely talked about and many in that church are living together without being married. Today’s society has no problem with divorce for almost any reason. In the social church the divorce rate is actually higher than in the world. Society does not have a problem with alcohol and I have seen the social church actually serving alcohol on church property. Society is beginning to accept same-sex marriage and all that it brings with it. We have many denominations that are now ordaining practicing homosexuals to lead their churches.

These insane actions from today’s so-called churches do nothing but confuse the parishioners. When the Bible says one thing about a subject but the preacher teaches something entirely the opposite, this causes confusion. 1 Corinthians 14:33 “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” Now that we have verified where the teachings that are contrary to the Bible are originated we can understand why too many ‘churches’ are so far away from what the Bible teaches. When the church ignores the laws and precepts of God’s Word, the church becomes ineffective in the society that it exists in.

The church in America was the center of government, education and enforcement during the founding years. These churches relied on what God required and then acted accordingly. That philosophy created the greatest nation the world will ever see. It was only when the church began to allow the philosophy of the worlds system into the church that the church began to lose its influence in the society where it once flourished. No system of governing that man has devised has ever been successful. The fall of all empires, the Greek, Persian, and Roman and even Russia are perfect examples. America’s system, based on biblical principles, has been the most effective, prosperous and successful for its people than any form of government this world has ever seen. Yet, we no longer embrace the values taught in scripture. The decline was gradual until 1954. At that time then Senator Lyndon Johnson attached an amendment to an IRS bill that made it illegal for a 501(c)3 corporation to be involved in the political arena. When the church was taken out of the political arena, the influence of godly principles began to fall exponentially.

Today most pastors don’t know that the church was ever involved in politics. This is disturbing because when you study the Bible God always had a man of God in a position of influence to those in government, always. That should give some pastors a hint that this should still be happening. I have spoken with many pastors about being involved in the political arena by preaching the importance of godly men in office, something that our Founders were very strong concerning and they look at me with terror in their eyes because of the fear of losing their precious 501(c)3. The Bible tells us that we are to have godly men in authority over us: Exodus 18:21 “Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:”. This is the verse the Founders used to establish the different levels of government; local, state and federal. Then we are told to pray for those in authority over us; 1 Timothy 2:1 “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;

(2) For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. What sense does it make to put ungodly men and women in authority over us and then spend all our time praying that they do godly things?

The church has been so slack in standing for the things of God that we have allowed our rights and freedoms to be taken from us mostly without a fight. In 1947 the Supreme Court reversed the meaning of the 1st Amendment stating that there should never be a biblical influence in government instead of never having governmental influence in the church and the church did nothing. In 1954 they stood by and let our freedom of speech and our right to participate in the political process be taken away and the church did nothing. In 1962 they made it illegal to pray in school and the church did nothing. In 1963 they took the Bible out of the school and the church did nothing.

Now there is a case before the Supreme Court that, if decided in the governments favor, will allow the government to tell the church who they can hire for ministers and even if they will allow a minister to hold certain positions in the church. Little by little we have lost our rights and freedoms because the church has refused to stand for what is right.

Pastors no longer have the backbone that the pastors had in the founding era. An excerpt from my book, American Exceptionalism, speaks about the influence that the pastors of the founding era had: “Historian B.F. Morris stated: The ministers of the Revolution were, like their Puritan predecessors, bold and fearless in the cause of their country. No class of men contributed more to carry forward the Revolution and to achieve our independence than did the ministers. . . . [B]y their prayers, patriotic sermons, and services [they] rendered the highest assistance to the civil government, the army, and the country. Alice Baldwin went one step further when she stated: The Constitutional Convention and the written Constitution were the children of the pulpit.”

Where is that fortitude today? Very few pastors are willing to stand up for what our Founders fought and died for. They have become pacifists and pansies. They have forgotten that they will stand before God on judgment day not the IRS. Another excerpt from American Exceptionalism: “These men were men of honor and integrity. They preached that Christians should live in the fullness of God’s Word. There were sermons on the deity of Christ, on Christmas, on Easter, but there were also sermons on other varied topics that you would not hear preached today such as sermons on bridges [architecture], earthquakes, taxes, elections, even executions.

Whatever was in the forefront of the people’s daily lives, the pastors would address it from a Biblical perspective. They were always out front in the fight for freedom. They helped write state constitutions, were the founders of most of our colleges and universities such as Yale, Harvard, Columbia [Kings College], Princeton, William and Mary, Dartmouth, and Rutgers University. By 1860 there were 246 colleges founded and all but 17 were founded by different religious denominations. They were the ones taking care of the wounded in battle and even served in state legislatures and Congress.

These pastors were very astute concerning God-given rights and would be very vocal about any attempt of government to encroach in those areas. They were vocal on things that involved liberty and freedoms and taught constantly about resisting any form of tyranny. Church historian Charles Galloway regarded the pastors of the Founding era to be the pillars of the community. He declared: Mighty men they were, of iron nerve and strong hand and unblanched cheek and heart of flame. God needed not reeds shaken by the wind, not men clothed in soft raiment [Matthew 11:7-8], but heroes of hardihood and lofty courage. . . . And such were the sons of the mighty who responded to the Divine call.”

Today churches allow almost anything inside the church. Recently we have seen the worst ‘marriage’ that we have ever seen. That is the Christian church embracing the teaching of Islam. There can be no more a foolish, not to mention stupid, thing that the church could do. The Bible is the light to all the world. Islam is darkness personified. Have they not read scripture? 2 Corinthians 6:14 “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” I have seen the Pope kissing a copy of the Quran! That is insane. A few months ago there was a Sunday where churches all over America combined Christian worship with Islamic worship and preached sermons and held Sunday school lessons on the founder of Islam, Mohammad, whom Muslims consider a prophet. Why are we teaching about Mohammad in our churches instead of Jesus?

The Quran is diabolically opposed to the Holy Bible. Many state that Christians, Jews and Muslims worship the same God. Not so! If that was true then God is a psychopath. In scripture God tells us how to treat an enemy: Romans 12:20 “Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.” The Quran gives a different command: Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.” If this was the same god giving these instructions, that god is contradicting himself. Islam will do anything to get their ‘foot in the door’. Lie, cheat, steal or deceive. They are masters at deception and the Christian church does not even to make an effort, it seems, to understand how the Muslims work.

History tells us that at no time in history have muslims assimilated into any society that they have immigrated into. Their purpose is to take that society over and install shariah law. Look at the largest muslim community in America, Dearborn, MI. In that muslim community it is illegal to pass out tracts to muslims. That is a violation of our religious freedoms and freedom of speech. Church bells are illegal in Dearborn. In Hartford, CN the muslim leaders met with the city council and informed them that there would be no passing out of tracts within four blocks of a mosque! They gave no regard to our constitutional rights.

This is what we are dealing with. They will say and do anything to get into our society and then demand that that society comply with their shariah law giving no regard to our national constitution.

We can no longer allow the church to go any direction it wants. God has set the guidelines and they must be followed. The church in early America followed them and we all know how America prospered. It wasn’t until the church backed away from her proper role that we started to see America go down the wrong path. In scripture we see that however the faith of the leaders went, so went Israel. The church was the center of everything in the founding era and it was strong and bold. Today it is weak. There are many churches that have not gone down that path and have held strong to the true call of the church. But far too many have forsaken the call and have now put the future of America in jeopardy.

I challenge pastors to get back to what God has called the church to be. Forget your political correctness because if you are political correct you are more than likely biblically wrong. Become again what God has called us to be.

Pinning the Tail of Terrorism on Christian Conservatives

The template is already formed.  The narrative, already written.  The Leftists in their push for global dominion, have a script – ready to yank out and slap on any and every heinous act of murder, massacre and sabotage.

The mainstream Leftist state-run propaganda media and the governments they support (especially the Obama regime) stand ready and eager to slap the title of terrorist, domestic terrorist, international terrorist on the targets they truly fear and hate: Christian Conservatives.  Regardless if the real perps are Jihadists or Leftist nutjob radicals, the Leftists are desperate to hope that the works of terror are really by the hands of bible-toting patriots, and if that does not end up being the actual case, they will BLAME and PIN terrorism on Christian Conservatives anyway.

When the Jihadist terror attack by Nidal Hassan at Fort Hood in 2009 took place, I recall media speculation in the immediacy of the breaking news, opining that the shootings were possibly the work of an anti-Obama ex-vet from Afghanistan.  Some began to account the growing ‘anger’ of Christian Conservatives over the TARP bailouts and the Stimulus bills as a potential ‘motive’ in the as-yet captured Hassan.  Even after Hassan was captured and reports were surfacing that Nidal Hassanb was shouting “Allu Ackbar!” while opening fire – Obama’s regime, including Wesley Clark and His Heinous himself took to the airwaves to demand the American people  “be cautious” and “not jump to conclusions”.  The media was so in-the-tank to deflect the truth about the Fort Hood Massacre as being a Jihadist attack, CNN deliberately misquoted an eye witness to the shooting to cast doubt on his story that the attack was the work of an Islamist.

A year later, when an insane Jared Laughner went on a massacre spree in Tucson AZ and shot Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, within MOMENTS of the attack – the blame Christian/Conservative/Talk Radio template was presented and shouted from the media rooftops followed by Leftist politicians spewing the same insidious demonization.  State Senator Linda Lopez (D-AZ) asserted on Fox News that ”the shooter is likely, from what I’ve heard, an Afghan vet..”  The demonization continued as Democrat politicans insisted that everyone from Sarah Palin to Rush Limbaugh were responsible for “creating the atmosphere” that inspired Laughner to kill.  Then it was officially learned that Laughner if anything, was inspired by radical Leftist propaganda – and the media went dead silent because that truth does not fit the narrative template they want to pin upon Christian Conservatives.

The template narrative is not limited to US politics either.  The radical Islamic threat benefits from an insane form of political correctness that these same Leftists toss out to give violent Jihad attacks cover or massaged to deflect real blame as we saw in the Nidal Hassan case.  As is often the case, when Islamic terror is discussed, it is almost immediately buttressed by insistence that the Christian Right is just as dangerous if not moreso.  That the Left is allied with Radical Islam is no secret – it’s an unholy alliance that they both mutually share together for the purpose of defeating a common enemy: Conservative Christians.  That is why they both mutually play the game of Pin The Terrorist On The Christian Conservative.

Such a template exists for ultimately only one purpose: the demonization necessary to criminalize and enact actions against Conservative Christians, and to silence any opposition to the narrative.  One benefit already manifest by using such templates and labels is for a majority of Christians or Conservatives to denounce their own, and rush to embrace those who hate them to showcase they are not as the media portray.

Which brings us to the recent massacre in Norway.

First, a massive bomb went off outside the Norwegian Prime Minister’s office around 3:30 PM local time, reports are speculating that the explosives used were ammonium nitrate, similar to what was used in the Oklahoma City Bombing.  Then, two hours later – a gunman dressed up as a policeman began shooting up teens at a youth camp on a small island.  Rescue officials took an hour and a half to respond to the Island attack which ended up claiming 87 lives.  The gunman caught was 32 year old Anders Behring Breivik, who it was learned also purchased 6 tons of fertilizer compound back in May.

In the original moments after the bombing and on reports of a shooting at the island youth retreat – speculation turned to Jihadists, as Mullah Krekar, founder of the Kurdish Islamist group Ansar al-Islam, had terrorism charges filed against him last Tuesday,  accused of threatening the life of a former Norwegian minister, reported Al Arabiya.

“Norway will pay a heavy price for my death,” he said. “If, for example, Erna Solberg deports me and I die as a result, she will suffer the same fate.”

Shortly after the bombing, Krekar’s Islamist group took responsibility for the attack, but then, retracted the claim.

The speculation of Islamists turned out to be different with the capture of Brievik.  But one speculation that suddenly arose, is that the template and narrative was brought out – being that Brievik was a “Conservative Christian” who waged the terrorism, not the Islamist group that initially took credit for the bombing in Oslo.  It’s a curious notion in a largely secular and Socialist nation like Norway for both Christian and Conservative to be used as the motive and label for the shooter.  Less than 3% of Norwegians are Christian and go to church, and the term of “Conservative” does not exist in Norway in the manner in which it is being used now to describe the arrested suspect.  But the media and especially the State run propaganda Mills in the US – is full tilt with the the Pin The Tail Template that a Right Wing Conservative Christian who hated Muslims carried out the attack.

But simple curiosity gets stranger when one looks into it.

In this day and age nearly everyone has a Facebook page.  And of course, Anders Behring Breivik had a Facebook page of his own.

Pamela Gellar of Atlas Shrugs noted an interesting peculiarity : someone or some entity CHANGED Anders Behring Breivik’s Facebook page from what it was shortly after his name was released.

This is Brievik’s page captured immediately after his name was released by police:

Someone with foresight took a screen shot of the page – which is fortunate because shortly after that screen cap was taken – Someone changed his Facebook page – as THIS is how Brievik’s page looked a short time later, and what was handed to the media to discover:

Notice the difference??

So WHO or what ALTERED the Facebook Page so it could convey that Anders Behring Breivik was a “Conservative Christian” in the American sense??  Was the screen cap page real, or a fake like the second one?  Why is the second page in English and the original in Norwegian, the same nationality as the gunman?  it is also noted that Breivik’s Facebook page was changed AFTER he was taken into custody but before Facebook took his page down.  So when did he have time or access to change his Facebook Page?

Anyone want to bet that NerObama’s DHS was happy to do that deed so their template of Right Wing Conservatives being terrorists can be realized and the game of Pin The Tail of Terrorism on Conservative Christians can stick???

The Homo ‘Night of Long Knives’ Targets Any Christian Who Dares Stand on Their Faith

Dare to stand on your Christian convictions?

Dare to assert your own private property rights when the Obama faithful demand you cater to their deviancy??

You will be declared to have committed a ‘Hate Crime”, be sued into oblivion by this government, the ACLU and it’s Brownshirt activists, and intimidated to cower in fear before the might of the sons of Sodom and the government they use to persecute you.

Interestingly, you don’t hear about lawsuits being filed against Muslims who stand on their faith against Homosexuality do you?

That’s because Churchianity has made the Christian faith, a limp and wet noodle that the world sees as a weakness to trample underfoot.

Homosexual Bigots Attack the Wildflower Inn

Homosexual bigots continue the “Night of the Long Knives” purge against anyone and everyone who believes in natural marriage.

The latest targets for their hatred and bigotry are the owners of the Wildflower Inn in Vermont. The inn’s owners, Jim and Mary O’Reilly, are facing a potentially crippling lawsuit for one reason and one reason only: they have a religious conviction that marriage is the union of one man and one woman.

They respectfully declined to rent out their facility used for a lesbian wedding reception. Said the O’Reillys, “Many of our guests have been same-sex couples. We welcome and treat all people with respect and dignity. We do not however, feel that we can offer our personal services wholeheartedly to celebrate the marriage between same-sex couples because it goes against everything that we as Catholics believe in.”

So the harassment of the O’Reillys is clearly “motivated by prejudice against (their)…religion.”

According to the template of the left, they have become the victims of a hate crime.

For daring to actually act on their moral convictions, they are being targeted by the ACLU, which is determined to criminalize Christianity in the United States.

The O’Reillys now face some kind of criminal or civil sanction for acting on their deeply held religious convictions. If they are fined, then their property is being plundered as a punishment for their religious views. If they are ordered to violate their own consciences in their wedding reception policies, then their God-given and “unalienable” right to liberty has been shredded.

And the fact that homosexual bigots are using the power of government to carry out their hate-driven harassment of the O’Reillys only makes it worse. Harassment is harassment no matter who’s doing it, and getting government thugs to do it for you under color of law is simply reprehensible.

Homosexual hatemongers have now created a “hostile environment” in which the O’Reillys are forced to work. They are being subjected to “conduct” which “annoys, threatens, intimidates (and) alarms” them, and have been subjected to behavior which is “unwanted, unwelcomed, and uninvited.” Hello, hate crime.

In a sane world in which the First Amendment was still the supreme law of the land, the O’Reillys’ freedom of religious expression and assembly would still be protected. Alas, the homosexual lobby is rapidly turning us into China and the former Soviet Union.

Christians are now being treated officially as second-class citizens with far fewer human and civil rights than those who engage in aberrant sexual behavior.

The words spoken by one of the lesbian bigots in this story would actually be far more appropriate on the lips of the O’Reillys. “We were saddened and shocked. It was frustrating to be treated like lesser than the rest of society.”

The homosexual agenda and religious liberty cannot co-exist. America will have to choose between the two, because we cannot have both. Every advance of the homosexual agenda comes at the expense of religious liberty. Every time – every single time – the homosexual agenda advances, religious liberty is forced into retreat.

The day has already arrived when it has become a criminal offense for a Christian to act on his convictions. The day is coming when it will be a criminal offense to have Christian convictions at all.

A Time To Grieve

grieve

By INVAR

For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.
A time to be born and a time to die.
A time to plant and a time to harvest.
A time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.

Ecclesiastes 3:1-4

Today is a time to grieve.

For those in America that cherished our biblical foundations and the liberties granted us by Almighty God, it is now a time to grieve.

America has chosen as it’s chief executive: a Marxist, with deep ties to Socialist and ethnocentric radicalism, upon whose stated agenda during the campaign is the greatest threat to your liberty that has ever come against it.  

America has selected as President, a man who has said that America “Must break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution”.

This man has said that he will “fundamentally change the United States of America”.

This man’s entire campaign has been one of “change”.  To “change America” into something it was never intended to be; a Socialist tyranny.

Obama has already taken two oaths of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States – two oaths he has never honored, indeed his own words prove that he will not honor this oath that he must swear, because he hates what America is and was.   This is why he seeks to change it.

Along with the choice of Marxist for President – the Democrats now have a super majority in the legislature, which means that the Obama, Reid, Pelosi triumvirate can proceed unopposed.

Contrary to gentlemen who have no problem compromising principles to appear congenial, who advocate the nation to ‘unify’ behind Obama, let us note that Obama himself made no such similar gracious overture in his victory speech.  Instead he said: “I may not have won your vote tonight, but I will be your president too”. So even if you did not vote for the Marxist, too bad – because he is now your boss in his mind.

This is a remarkable statement when the very people who lent themselves to his campaign spent the last 8 years trashing the current occupant of the White House, referring to Bush as Hitler and vehemently exclaiming that he was not their president, even while on foreign soil.  

So, Marxists pushing Socialism won, and liberty lost.

America has chosen it’s fate.

In truth, our experiment with liberty is now over as it reverts to totalitarian Socialism and an oligarchy that will now proceed to entrench itself into permanent political power.

I have read a lot of loathing, fear and anger today over the results of yesterday.  But let us face this truth: America wants Socialism.  America no longer reveres liberty and responsibility, America wants a free hand out because they have been led to envy and hate those that have succeeded.  America has succumbed to the delusion to worship a mere man as a messiah, and grant him the power to control their lives and take from those they envy, and have it redistributed to themselves by the power of government.

This truth requires us to reflect on how we arrived here and what was initially intended for us as a people and nation.  This truth requires that we grieve.  America has been transformed into a pure democracy, a mob that has elevated a narcissistic demagogue to president.

We have seen this before in history.

We should know where it leads.

Some say today that we should not give into any defeatism.  Some say today that this is just a temporary bump and we will be able to restore whatever damage to liberty is done in 4 years.

To that I quote Founder John Adams: 

…A Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost is lost forever. When the People once surrender their share in the Legislature, and their Right of defending the Limitations upon the Government, and of resisting every Encroachment upon them, they can never regain it…

- John Adams, Letter to Abigail 1775

Some of your countrymen see something that perhaps you refuse to allow yourself to recognize in your patriotic bravado: that this mob that has chosen Socialism sees you as the enemy. Soon your neighbors and family will share the sentiment for the promise of bread or security.

While some may grieve aloud – some of us stuff it down deep and pretend we can restore what cannot be restored once lost.

How can we expect God to hear and rescue the nation from our follies when we have turned a blind eye to the genocide of the unborn in our own nation? 

Who the hell are we but Germans who looked the other way when millions were sent to gas chambers and ovens?  In our generation, on our watch as a Christian people – we stood idle while an entire generation of infants were stabbed in the brain and sucked out with a vacuum.

Where the hell was the Christian church to stand against that holocaust? Where the hell were they to teach their children and their brethren to be chaste and virtuous??

Where were they to decry sinful sexual deviancy and adultery??

Where  was the Christian church when God was banned and removed from school?

Where was the Christian church when God’s commandments were tossed from the public square?

I’ll tell you where they were: silent.  Capitulators to the deviancy that destroyed our culture.

Can we be surprised if God is silent in a coming time when we are in need of His aid?

Where will the Christian church be when they come to remove the scriptures and criminalize our teachings?

I tell you where they will be – the same damn place they were when the culture went to hell: standing with the mob.

Some of us are resolved to fight.

Some, because of however the Spirit directs – feel the need to flee.

And such persons are grieving, and we need to look to their example today.

Are we so callous, so indifferent or in such denial that we will not afford ourselves to do the same??

We deserve what is coming.

Despite what you are about to experience, our robes will be made white in the flames of tribulation – because the Christian church has gone lukewarm in America, neither hot, nor cold – God is going to vomit us forth from His mouth – and we will undergo trial by fire to see what kind of mettle we are made of.

Grieve now, and show God your remorse for how carelessly we regarded His precious gift of liberty.

Grieve now and show God in tears our sorrowfulness for slapping him in the face by neglecting our duty to guard the culture which was the vanguard of the Republic.

Grieve now, and show God our gratitude for the blessings we have squandered and the liberty we are about to lose.

Perhaps if we all grieved, and we repented – we might hold onto what we have just a little while longer by the Grace and Mercy of God.

But do not deceive yourselves by thinking we are going to restore what is and will be lost.

We were warned.

We did not heed.

Now we must prepare to endure, and hold on to the Crown of Life God has blessed us with.

Do not be discouraged with what you will see in the future.  Be steadfast and endure knowing that this judgment is a long time coming.

I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever. – Thomas Jefferson
