What Political Correctness Really Means

July 11, 2016

When someone like Rudy Giuliani speaks truth, the “politically correct” crowd jumps into action to criticize him and attempt to shut him up.

Video: Giuliani: Black Lives Matter instigates hatred, division.

Recall when Martin O’Malley (a Democrat BTW) stated that “all lives matter,” but then had to backtrack and apologize for saying that? Just shows that when Dems do not keep to the current “politically correct” meme, they will ALSO be verbally attacked and forced to apologize. Former VA AG went a little further. He stated that the “Black Lives Matter” slogan suggests ‘Black Lives matter more than everybody else.’

So…what happens when a black woman shares the “all lives matter” sentiment? Girlfriend of Black Man Shot Dead by Police: Diamond ‘Lavish’ Reynolds “All Lives Matter”

Excerpt:

“Not black lives matter – all lives matter – every single life out here matters, no matter the color, the race, the nationality, we all deserve to be heard,” she added.

Reynolds’ use of the phrase “all lives matter” is interesting given that ‘Black Lives Matter’ leaders have repeatedly claimed that the term represents a disparaging racial remark.

Back in February, Black Lives Matter co-founder Marissa Jenae Johnson told Fox News’ John Roberts that the phrase “all lives matter” is a “new racial slur”.

Leftist commentators have also repeatedly insisted that saying “all lives matter” is racist. Just today, Advocate.com writer Rachel Lewis asserted that, “when you say #AllLivesMatter, whether you mean to or not, you’re being racist.”

Uh oh…Ms. Reynolds isn’t holding to the proper meme either! What happens now?

The following congresswoman is holding to the proper meme when she adamantly states:

Stop Saying “Black Lives Matter” When Black Babies Die in Abortions.

Ahhh…NOW we see why it is “politically incorrect” to say that “all lives matter!” Apply the rights of unborn babies (blacks, or otherwise) to the “All Lives Matter” meme and THAT’S a huge no-no! To take it even further, according to the woman in the following article, it’s actually “racist” to say so!

Do Unborn Black Lives Matter? Pro-Life Billboard Called Racist.

Excerpt:

An Atlanta women’s group is demanding that a Minnesota based “Pro Life Across America” billboard ad mourning the loss of untold numbers of black babies to abortion each year be removed from a black neighborhood last week because they say the ad is racist.

Nikema Williams, spokesman for Planned Parenthood, said the ad, which reads “Dad’s Princess” next to the picture of a black baby girl, is just an attempt by the pro-life organization to shame women and their choices.

Hmmm….”shame women and their choices.” What about the FUTURE WOMEN IN THE WOMB (and future men, of course) whose lives are snuffed out because of the convenience of the women who doesn’t want them? Where is the “choice” of the babies in the womb?

Speaking of choice…I like the slogan, “CHOOSE LIFE…YOU’RE MOTHER DID.”

Second excerpt:

According to abortion statistics published in The Washington Times earlier this year, 139,539 black babies were aborted in 2010 – that latest year of numbers available.

And even though the overall abortion rate across the country has dropped in recent years, the CDC reported in 2010 that black women continue to have the highest abortion rate of any ethnic group, with a gruesome 483 abortions for every 1,000 live births – almost a third!

If the government were to impose this abortions rate on black Americans or any race group for that matter, critics would call it genocide.

Pro Life Across America, a non-profit, non-partisan organization which calls itself “The Billboard People” says it has billboards in 44 states and across Canada and is supported solely by donations from supporters.

A few days ago, my husband shared an eRumor about something that Harry S. Truman wrote in an alleged famed telegram chain between MacArthur and Truman.

Excerpt:

President Truman did not explain political correctness to General MacArthur in a series of telegraphs.

The chain email claims General MacArthur had never heard of the term “politically correct” and that President Truman had to explain it to him just before Japan’s World War II surrender in 1945.

But the Harry S. Truman Library & Museum told TruthorFiction.com that those correspondences “do not exist in the library’s holdings.”

The library spokesperson also added that the chain email got Chester Nimitz’s middle initial wrong. It’s Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, not C.H. Nimitz.

The chain email doesn’t make sense when it comes to other historical details as well.

The earliest use of the term “politically correct” came in 1936, according to Merriam-Webster:

“Full Definition of POLITICALLY CORRECT:  conforming to a belief that language and practices which could offend political sensibilities (as in matters of sex or race) should be eliminated.”

Well…whoever thought up the following definition of “political correctness” certainly describes it much better!

Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of sh*t by the clean end!

We are living in a terribly perverse time in history.

Perverse

adjective

1.

willfully determined or disposed to go counter to what is expected or desired; contrary.

a perverse mood.

Examples of perverseness are too numerous to list.  Just watch the news for a week and see how large your list would grow!

The Bible has a lot to say about being perverse:

 

Pro 28:18

Whoever walks blamelessly will be saved,
But he who is perverse in his ways will suddenly fall.

Deu 32:5

“They have corrupted themselves;
They are not His children,
Because of their blemish:
A perverse and crooked generation.

 

Psa 101:4

A perverse heart shall depart from me;
I will not know wickedness.

Pro 11:20

Those who are of a perverse heart are an abomination to the LORD,
But the blameless in their ways are His delight.

Pro 12:8

A man will be commended according to his wisdom,
But he who is of a perverse heart will be despised.

Pro 14:2

He who walks in his uprightness fears the LORD,
But he who is perverse in his ways despises Him.

Pro 16:28

A perverse man sows strife,
And a whisperer separates the best of friends.

Pro 21:8

The way of a guilty man is perverse;[fn]
But as for the pure, his work is right.

Mat 17:17

Then Jesus answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.”

Act 2:40

And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.”

Phl 2:14

Do all things without complaining and disputing,

Phl 2:15

that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,

Phl 2:16

holding fast the word of life, so that I may rejoice in the day of Christ that I have not run in vain or labored in vain.

Liberal Hypocrisy: While Liberal “Entertainers” Try to Dictate What is “Morally Right” in NC, Muslims Prepare to Build an Islamic Museum on Ground Zero In NYC

May 21, 2016

This essay tells the truth about the liberal leftist hypocrisy and insanity that is being pushed upon America by B. Insane 0bama and his ilk. The terrible shame of the brain-dirting that has been done (especially to young people!) in this nation is so sadly evident in everything that Kingsjester’s blog discusses in this very important and informative post!

th (70)Today’s Modern American Liberals, from President Barack Hussein Obama to the all-too-common Internet Troll, are continuing to fiddle around with “Gender Identity Rights”, while our nation, like Ancient Rome, burns.

CNSNews.com reports that

The pop group Maroon 5 on Friday joined the list of entertainers canceling appearances in North Carolina because of its law that denies anti-discrimination protections and dictates which restrooms transgender people can use.”This was a difficult decision for us to make as a band. We don’t want to penalize our fans in North Carolina by not performing for them, but in the end it comes down to what we feel is morally right,” the group said on its website.

The band led by Adam Levine, who doubles as a celebrity musician-coach on NBC’s “The Voice,” won’t appear Sept. 11 at Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte or Sept. 12 at PNC Arena in Raleigh.

‘What could be more satanic than political correctness, the crime of free-thinking?’

April 6, 2016

This morning I read an article over at WND (A Free Press for a Free People) that accurately explains that there is something decidedly satanic about leftists’ politics, and he [Michael Walsh] cites classical literature and history as his proof.

If you shake your head in disbelief about the young voters seen on TV cheering on the socialist/communist Bernie Sanders, that article will help explain why such an unthinkable mindset of satanic leftist beliefs has taken its grip upon these brain-dirtied people!

See Romans 1:16-32

Excerpt:

Walsh observed how the left and the devil have the same aims: destroy the traditional and established order.

He wrote, “Critical Theory is the very essence of satanism: rebellion for the sake of rebellion against an established order that has obtained for eons, and with no greater promise for the future than destruction.”

Critical Theory was the brainchild of the Frankfurt School, and it has come to dominate thinking in American academia, with its call to question any and everything.

Walsh said the theory in practice became an attack on everything of value. He described the real goal of Critical Theory as an attempt to demolish Western civilization.

He called it, basically, “a juvenile revolt against your parents.”

The author described the work of the Frankfurt scholars as grounded in an ideology that performed “an unremitting assault on Western values and institutions, including Christianity, the family, conventional sexual morality, nationalistic patriotism … Literally nothing was sacred.”

Walsh described how these leftist thinkers maintain everything we stand for, the values and traditions of America and all of Western Civilization, is arbitrary and capricious. An illustration would be how many on the left consider gender roles to be a subjective matter of personal preference rather than a fixed matter of biology.

During the time that homosexual “marriage” was being debated here in California, I had a blog up called Protect Biblical Marriage [Note: I left Bl0gger because they created a new rule that I disagreed with.] If you take the time to read some of the posts there, you would see dire warnings about the “end game” regarding the radical gay agenda.

Excerpt:

“In California, religious rights, moral rights, parental rights, business owner rights, property owner rights, physicians’ rights, and the right of association are being trampled by the intolerant ‘LGBT’ agenda,” [Randy] Thomasson said. “And despite their lust for dominion and their incessant attacks on other persons’ constitutional rights, the homosexual-bisexual-transsexual activists deceive themselves and others by claiming to be ‘victims’ of peaceful people who have a conscience on these sexual behaviors. But who’s trampling whom? American rights or so-called ‘gay rights’ — you can’t have both, because the latter eliminates the former.”

The next time someone attempts to claim that conservative Christians are “trampling” upon the ‘LGBT’ agenda, please explain to them that in California, the religious rights, moral rights, parental rights, business owner rights, property owner rights, physicians’ rights, and the right of association are being trampled by the intolerant ‘LGBT’ agenda!

The old saying that “a picture is worth 1,000 words” holds true with this graphic:

H/T: Kingsjester Blog: America Pushes Back: Mississippi Governor Signs Religious Objection Law [Great post – read it all!]

Why would such a law be created? Because the rabid LGBTQ…xyz crowd is making it necessary!

Excerpt from article cited at that link:

Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant on Tuesday signed a far-reaching law allowing people with religious objections to deny wedding services to same-sex couples and protecting other actions considered discriminatory by gay rights activists.

The measure also clears the way for employers to cite religion in determining workplace policies on dress code, grooming and bathroom and locker access, drawing criticism from civil rights leaders.

Bryant, a Republican, said in a statement he signed the law “to protect sincerely held religious beliefs and moral convictions of individuals, organizations and private associations from discriminatory action by state government.”

Excerpt from Kingsjester blog post :

This morning, on a great Conservative Website, which I am privileged to be a contributor to, www.hotgas.net, you will see posted a News Headline, which reads, “Christian Persecution Up Under Obama”.

Boys and girls, if you haven’t noticed yet, America is being torn apart around us.

We have a president and a political minority in this Sovereign Nation, who not only champion, but embrace the practice of murdering babies in the womb, and declare that deviant sexual practices, which were one of the factors which led to the downfall of ancient Greece and ancient Rome, are healthy, normal, and a “Civil Right”.

What’s next?

Your Honor, my German Shepherd and I want to get married. We are in love.

We have average Christian Americans, who are being sued for exorbitant amounts of money and losing their businesses, because they refuse to violate their Christian Faith, a faith which has been the anchor of the overwhelming majority of citizens in this country, including our Founding Fathers.

Does that make any kind of sense to you?

What in the Wild, Wild World of Sports is a’goin’ on around here?

I believe it all starts at home.

This current generation has, in many cases, been raised without knowing Jesus Christ, or if their parents tried to introduce them to Him, they became seduced by popular culture, and tossed their parents’ Christian Faith aside, because it actually required them to exercise individual responsibility, moral courage, and humility, which involves caring for someone other than yourself.

Popular culture teaches that no one is more important than you are and that self-absorbed philosophy is what we are seeing being played out before our eyes today.

We have raised a generation of spoiled brats who have grown into selfish adults.

I have often thought how is it possible that these young people following Sanders could possibly be duped into thinking that the “cultural Marxism” that this atheist espouses would be good for them and our nation?

Now, let’s go back to the WND article to find out.

Excerpt:

How could this have happened? How could the American elite have fallen for the philosophy of the losers?

Walsh maintains, following World War II, the cultural Marxist philosophers of the Frankfurt School who emigrated from Germany and entered American academia persuasively peddled an illusion: a utopian paradise on earth, meant “to tempt and seduce Western civilization into self-destruction, with shame and doubt as its principal snares.”

In his book, Walsh said the left has erected “a modern Devil’s Pleasure Palace, a Potemkin village built on the promises of ‘social justice’ and equality for all … a world without want or cold or fear or racism or sexism … a world that sounds very much like heaven,” but, instead, “this world has become hell.”

He said that was evidenced by, “The corpses of the untold millions who have died in the attempts of the literally Unholy Left to found the Kingdom of Heaven here on earth, divorced from God,” which, he notes, is also the same ambition as Satan’s: to reclaim heaven, but without God.

“Since few people would willingly consign themselves to Hell,” penned Walsh, “Lying is the centerpiece of both the satanic and the leftist projects … the rebels must always mask their true intentions.”

And being rebels is what the left and Satan have most in common, in the view of the author.

[Walsh] observed how the left and the devil have the same aims: destroy the traditional and established order.

He wrote, “Critical Theory is the very essence of satanism: rebellion for the sake of rebellion against an established order that has obtained for eons, and with no greater promise for the future than destruction.”

All we can do is pray for, and warn people who have fallen for such snares devised by the devil.

2Th 2:7

For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He [fn] who now restrains will do so until He [fn] is taken out of the way.

2Th 2:8

And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.

Th 2:9

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,

2Th 2:10

and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

Rush: Liberals see right wing as bigger threat than Islam.

March 29, 2016

WND has an article up today where radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh makes the claim that conservatives are a bigger threat to liberals than Islam.


Rush: Liberals see right wing as bigger threat than Islam
‘The left thinks we’re unjust and immoral’

Excerpt:

“Who are their biggest enemies? Christians, conservatives, right wingers. The left, which is Islam – militant Islam is on the left, just as the Democratic Party is,” Limbaugh continued. “Take a look their common political opponents or other kinds of enemies. It’s us, folks. This is the thing that a lot of people can’t get through their heads. We had 9/11. We had Fort Hood. Do you have Obama condemning it? Obama will not condemn it.”

Limbaugh went on to say that Europe is importing its own destruction, given that Islamic radicals have vowed to use Western freedom as a tool to bring about its destruction. The host said the cultural transformations happening in Europe give Americans a glimpse into their own future unless they act now.

“For some reason, Obama and his crew do not look at Islam as a threat to their power. Terrorism is a threat to their power, but they see that in us. We are a threat to their power – and we are. We’re trying to take it away from them. We’re trying to beat them in elections. That’s not allowed. That will not happen. We pose too big a threat to them. They could peacefully co-exist with all these other people. They’re on the same place in the political prism. They’re both out there on the left. Both have the same common enemy: The United States, Great Satan.”

Limbaugh said liberals find America an unjust and immoral place because its founding included slavery, while Islamic terrorists come to the same conclusion because the U.S. is populated with infidels.

“You listen to the ex-president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and you couldn’t tell the difference in what he says about America than Joe Biden on the campaign trail, or Obama,” said Limbaugh.

“They talk about this country in identical ways. They talk about Republicans in identical ways. We are their biggest threat, making us their central enemy. The American left, Democratic Party, and liberalism worldwide, its enemy is conservatism. Conservatism, if ever it succeeded – really succeeded – would vastly shrink the source of power, wealth and existence for all these people, and that is government.”

I found the following photo back in 2010 which was taken during an anti-Israel march in San Fransicko.

Notice what is in the photo below.  The man holding the sign is wearing Muslim terrorist garb.  The man walking next to him is wearing a commie red t-shirt with the image of Che Guevara!

How ironic that the Muslim man is holding that sign (below)!  Here’s a quote from Che Guevara that may explain their union of nefarious ideologies:

“I don’t care if I fall as long as someone else picks up my gun and keeps on shooting.”

Che Guevara

H/T Brainy Quote

I wish that more Americans would heed Ronald Reagan’s advice:

Ronald Reagan

“How do you tell a Communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.”

Ronald Reagan

I must admit that I found it confusing when I first heard about the march and saw that photo! However, by the year 2013, it became much clearer why these two evil ideologies would march together in anti-Israel solidarity!

Tolerance is a crime when applied to evil (Thomas Mann).
(H/T – Atlas Shrugs)

The following is an excerpt from my former Talk Wisdom blog essay entitled, Why The Unholy Alliance of Islam and Communism? Taqiyya?

What those two men (seen in photo below, marching together, BTW, in an anti-Israel demonstration during the Bush presidential years) represent is the forming of an alliance between radical Islam and Communism!  Also, notice what the sign says:  “Thank You S.F. (San Francisco) Liberals – You Die Last.”  How ANYONE could possibly support either group is beyond any semblance of reason!  Liberals are being USED by both!  Yet they are either complicit in either ideology or just too damn ignorant to realize it!

I thought that the evil alliance of radical Islam and Communism (Putin and his ilk) would one day need to battle against each other for dominance of the world. This may still happen. Perhaps the caliphate-hungry Iran is using Communist Putin in the usual Muslim deceptive tactics known as al Taqiyya?  Muslims might join together and tolerate Communists in an old taqiyya-style kind of temporary alliance.  Why?  Because of their joined hatred of Israel!  They are uniting with the intended plan of making a future collaborated attempt at destroying Israel!

But then, which one [Islam or Communism] will ultimately win out?

Well, this terrorist’s quote shows what radical Islam believes:

“Sons of Islam everywhere, the jihad is a duty – to establish the rule of Allah on earth and to liberate your countries and yourselves from America’s domination and its Zionist allies, it is your battle – either victory or martyrdom.”

Ahmed Yassin
H/T Brainy Quote

And, where does the U.S. fit into this picture?

If the Lord Jesus Christ tarries, then hopefully America will break free from this egregiously criminal ObamaFRAUD tyrannical government with a new conservative leader who will help get us back on track towards restoring our beloved Constitutional Republic!

If not, then we might very well be headed into the fulfillment of end times *prophecy.

The Political Version of Adam’s Excuse to God

It is very, very sobering to realize and admit that we are all complicit in the evil.

Vivid Examples That Expose Hidden Agendas

January 25, 2016

Most of the time I get to enjoy the more pleasant aspects of sharing God’s Word and the salvation message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ here at this blog.  However, there are times when the Lord presses upon me to expose both the ugliness of sinful people who desperately need to repent as well as those that continue to enable them.

Connecting the dots between groups that appear to be against one another, yet have a shared hidden agenda against a third group (that they constantly show hatred for and vilify) is one of Satan’s greatest tools.  Today, I will share two vivid examples that expose such hidden agendas.

The first highly disturbing article that I read this morning was Criticize Muslim rapes? You’re a bigot!” Made me cringe in horror and absolute disgust at not only the Muslim mindset to rape, pillage, destroy and kill; but also to see even more evidence of how crazy and bizarre the mindset of leftists are for not speaking out against such evil!

Excerpt:

New Year’s Eve was a horrifying night for scores of women in the German city of Cologne, as large crowds of Middle Eastern and North African migrant men, mostly Muslim, robbed and sexually assaulted them.

And yet, in the aftermath, there was scarcely a whimper to be heard from feminists around the world.

Dr. Gina Loudon, co-author of “What Women Really Want,” said this feminist silence is likely due to the fact that the perpetrators of the crimes were Muslims, including many recently arrived refugees.

Feminists and Muslims are part of the same leftist coalition, she noted, so feminists cannot criticize Islamic violence against women.

“They whine about a so-called ‘Republican war on women’ but neglect to mention the rapes, sexual assaults, and other crimes committed against women in what is evidently an official, organized, adherent Islamic war on Western women,” Loudon told WND.

“Where is the outrage? Where are the burning bras? Where are the Code Pink protests? They can’t say a word. Women are silenced in America, lest they risk their statist street cred.”

Pamela Geller, president of the American Freedom Defense Initiative and author of “Stop the Islamization of America,” agreed feminists are more concerned with their leftist ideology than with the actual well-being of women.

 

“This is consistent with feminist denial of Islamic honor killings, FGM, forced marriage, child marriage, misogyny, et cetera under Islam,” said Geller, a WND columnist. “The feminists’ cause is not actually ‘feminism’ or ‘women’ – rather, their cause is leftism, statism, and collectivism. Islam is the very definition of statism. There is no unique soul in Islam. Islam is a state.”

Then, I read what Maddmedic posted at his blog regarding what an American Airlines pilot wrote in an email…and I cheered!

Excerpt:

As a rational American, trying to protect my country and family in an irrational and unsafe world, I must know how to tell the difference between you, and the Arab/Muslim terrorist.

How do I differentiate between the true Arab/Muslim Americans and the Arab/Muslim terrorists in our communities who are attending our schools, enjoying our parks, and living in OUR communities under the protection of OUR constitution, while they plot the next attack that will slaughter MORE of the same good neighbors and children?

The events of September 11 changed the answer… It is not MY responsibility to determine which of you embraces our great country, with ALL of its religions, with ALL of its different citizens, with all of its faults.  It is time for every Arab/Muslim in this country to determine it for me.

I want to know, I DEMAND to know and I have a right to know, whether or not you love America ….. Do you pledge allegiance to its flag?  Do you proudly display it in front of your house, or on your car?  Do you pray in your many daily prayers that Allah will bless this nation; that He will protect it and let it prosper?  Or do you pray that Allah with destroy it in one of your Jihads?  Are you thankful for the freedom that this nation affords?  A freedom that was paid for by the blood of hundreds of thousands of patriots who gave their lives for this country?  Are you willing to preserve this freedom by also paying the ultimate sacrifice?  Do you love America ??  If this is your commitment, then I need YOU to start letting ME know about it

Your Muslim leaders in this nation should be flooding the media at this time with hard facts on your faith, and what hard actions YOU are taking as a community and as a religion to protect the United States of America.  Please, no more benign overtures of regret for the death of the innocent, because I worry about who you regard as innocent…. No more benign overtures of condemnation for the unprovoked attacks, because I worry about what is unprovoked to you.  I am not interested in any more sympathy; I am interested only in action.  What will you do for America – our great country – at this time of crisis, at this time of war?

Read it all at Freedom is Just Another Word….

Why do leftists not criticize Muslim rapes against women yet claim that the Republicans are involved in a so-called “war on women?” Hard to fathom… isn’t it? But the WND article explains it well!

It’s because both the leftists and radical Islamists adhere to totalitarianism.

Gives new and horribly disturbing meaning to the phrase, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend…”

The Good News is that there ARE Muslims who are coming out of the false political totalitarian mindset (disguised as “religion”) of radical Islam by confessing their sins and accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior!  This happening more than ever before! This was predicted to happen the closer we get to the end times. How do I know? Jesus said it himself!

Mat 24:14

“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Jesus Christ warned his followers of Satan’s minions who come to only steal, kill, and destroy:

Jhn 10:10

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

Jhn 10:11

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.

Jhn 10:12

“But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.

Jhn 10:13

“The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.

Jhn 10:14

“I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.

Jhn 10:15

“As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.

Jhn 10:16

“And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.

Jhn 10:17

“Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again.

Jhn 10:18

“No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.”

Jesus Christ, our good shepherd,  is the world’s one and only true hope!

The wise still seek Him!

We Slide Toward Godlessness and Convince Ourselves We Have Been Liberated – D.A. Carson

July 24, 2015

While responding to a comment in my previous post, I did some research back at my former Talk Wisdom blog to show commenter GMPilot that I suspected, way back in January 2008,  that Obama was not a genuine, born-again believer in Jesus Christ. The reasons why I came to that conclusion are listed at that link.

Today, I wanted to highlight a comment that I made under that post. Seven years later, it has turned out to be almost prophetic as to why Obama would be a disastrous choice for POTUS!

Here is the comment, written back in January, 2008:

Ah! Now I see. It appears, from Obama’s own words, the he believes in “universalism.”

Quote:

Obama recently talked about his faith with the Concord, N.H., Monitor.

“I’ve always said that my faith informs my values, and in that sense it helps shape my worldview, and I don’t think anyone should be required to leave their religious sensibilities at the door,” Obama told the paper last week. “But we have to translate those concerns into a universal language that can be subject to argument and doesn’t turn into a contest of any one of us thinking that God is somehow on our side.”

The candidate told the Monitor he doesn’t buy everything his pastor proclaims, saying: “There are some things I agree with my pastor about, some things I disagree with him about. I come from a complex racial background with a lot of different strains in me: white, black, I grew up in Hawaii. I tend to have a strong streak of universalism, not just in my religious beliefs, but in my ethical and moral beliefs.”

To paraphrase former President Ronald Reagan’s words when speaking of communism:

“Open Theism, Universalism, Mormonism, Romanism, the Emergent Church, Jehovah Witnesses, Pragmatism, Syncretism, Word of Faith, New Perspective of Paul, Libertarian Free Will, Socinianism, the Social Gospel, and Sabellianism is foreign to heaven, where they’ve never had part in it; and is welcome in hell, where they’ve already got it.”

Yep…

Sure makes the connection between Obama’s obviously Marxist philosophy and his “faith.”

Note this quote, too:

“PEOPLE DO NOT drift toward holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; we drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the undisciplined of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated.” -D. A. Carson, For the Love of God

Wow! What a great description of liberalism, which often leads to licentiousness and all of the pitfalls and dangers that humanity ends up succumbing to as a result!!

P.S. Speaking of the “affects of liberalism,” perhaps this is what Obama means when he constantly (and, annoyingly) utilizes the term “change.”

American Heritage Dictionary – Cite This Source – Share This af·fect 1 (ə-fěkt’) Pronunciation Key
tr.v. af·fect·ed, af·fect·ing, af·fects

To have an influence on or effect a change in:

Inflation affects the buying power of the dollar.
To act on the emotions of; touch or move.
To attack or infect, as a disease:

Rheumatic fever can affect the heart.

Yep…the disease of universalism would bring the dis-ease of more liberal licentiousness upon our nation…

The effect of Obama’s worldview isn’t one that I want our nation to experience. No way!

*******

Unfortunately, our nation has suffered tremendously over the past 6 1/2 years under Obama’s totalitarianism worldview.

Obama’s universalist beliefs might help explain why he supports both Islam and the radical homosexual agenda; despite the fact that those two are in direct (and deadly!) opposition to each other.

The Gateway Pundit

Conclusion:
Islam is a satanic, horrible, evil, and deadly religion.  Liberalism (progressivism etc.) is a mental disorder and those who adhere to it (knowingly, or unknowingly – by turning a blind eye to the facts!) can end up supporting Islam because they choose to ignore the taqiyya lies that drives radical Islamic terrorism that is spreading across the world.  At the same time, here at home they support  the radical homosexual agenda which is intent on destroying God’s idea for marriage and the family, as well as Bible based Christian beliefs and the churches that preach such truth.  [Please see John McArthur: We Will Not Bow.]
Trouble is, radical Islam wants to steal, kill, and destroy both liberals and homosexuals!  No group [for we are all “infidels”] escapes their evil – they also want to kill Jews and Christians!
Jesus speaking here:

Jhn 10:10

“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
Yet, Christians are being labeled as “haters,” “homophobes,” “bigots” “Islamophobes” and every other disparaging name you could think of because we share the true gospel of Jesus Christ and the reality of the need for repentance of sin in order to be redeemed.
 

Jesus speaking:

Jhn 10:11

“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep.

Jhn 10:12

“But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.

Jhn 10:13

“The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep.

Jhn 10:14

“I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.

Jhn 10:15

“As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.

Jhn 10:16

“And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.

Jhn 10:17

“Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again.

Jhn 10:18

“No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.”

Perfect Example of “The New Totalitarians”

July 9, 2015

ABC

When actress Candace Cameron Bure defended the Christian owners of an Oregon bakery who refused to make a cake for a gay wedding on “The View” Tuesday, an apparent audible gasp from one of the co-hosts immediately followed.

Discussing the divisive case, the former “Full House” star revealed she doesn’t think what the bakery did amounts to “discrimination.” It quickly became clear she was outnumbered on the issue.

“This is about freedom of association, it’s about constitutional rights, it’s about First Amendment rights,” she added. “We do have the right to still choose who we associate with.”

Bure argued the owners of Sweet Cakes By Melissa didn’t refuse to bake the cake simply because the customers were lesbians. In fact, she said, “they baked cakes for them previously.”

“They had a problem with the actual ceremony because that, the ceremony, is what conflicted with their religious beliefs,” Bure said.

Co-host Raven-Symone strong disagreed with the actress, claiming the bakery discriminated against the couple based on their “sexual orientation” and likened the case to past discrimination of black people. The bakery has been fined $135,000 and hit with a gag order for refusing to bake the cake.

Bure ended her argument by saying, “Here’s the other thing that I really wish we could do as a society, as a culture, as a country, is to respect that we have opposing views.”

Copy of previous post that explains why “the majority” on the leftist leaning panel at “The View” exhibited The New Totalitarian views that Tom Nichols, who is a professor of national security affairs at the US Naval War College and adjunct professor in the Harvard Extension School, wrote about in his The Federalist essay entitled, “The New Totalitarians.”

 

I wasn’t planning on doing a post today, but after hearing Rush Limbaugh on the radio this morning, discussing “The New Totalitarians,” I decided that I needed to share the marvelous insight of Tom Nichols, who is a professor of national security affairs at the US Naval War College and an adjunct professor in the Harvard Extension School.” He wrote this piece at the website called The Federalist and it’s titled “The New Totalitarians Are Here.”

Excerpts:

He said, “There’s a basic difference in the traditions of political science between ‘authoritarians’ and ‘totalitaritarians.

Simply put, authoritarians merely want obedience,” they just want you to agree with them, “while totalitarians … want obedience and conversion. Authoritarians are a dime a dozen.” Your average boss is an authoritarian. “Totalitarians are rare.

These are the people who have a plan, who think they see the future more clearly than you or who are convinced they grasp reality in a way that you do not. They don’t serve themselves — or, they don’t serve themselves exclusively — they serve History, or The People, or The Idea, or some other ideological totem that justifies their actions.”

There’s always some grand cause justifying their totalitarianism.

“They want obedience, of course. But even more, they want their rule, and their belief system, to be accepted and self-sustaining. And the only way to achieve that is to create a new society of people who share those beliefs, even if it means bludgeoning every last citizen into enlightenment. That’s what makes totalitarians different and more dangerous: they are ‘totalistic’ in the sense that they demand a complete reorientation of the individual to the State and its ideological ends.

Nichols writes, “Americans Are Getting Too Comfortable With Thought Control. I’ve gone down this road of literary and academic exposition –” meaning he’s written this piece and all those other things. “– because I fear an increasing number of my fellow Americans are, at heart, becoming totalitarians.

[I] mean that ordinary people, and not a few opinion and thought leaders, are adopting the same insane belief that human minds can be molded and shaped and made to think in new ways by sheer force.

[Now], you remember George Takei (imitating Thomas), “Clarence Thomas is just a clown in black face. He has no business being on the Supreme Court.” How many times have I pointed out no matter how much the left wins, they’re not happy. No matter what they get, they’re never happy. No matter what they get, they’re never satisfied. The reason is that there’s always dissent. They’re going to be miserable as long as there are people who disagree. Just the fact that there is disagreement depresses them, angers them, outrages them. That is intolerable. That’s what totalitarianism is.

It’s not enough that Clarence Thomas’s side was defeated in that gay marriage case or in the Obamacare case. No. What mattered was that he dared write his disagreement. And what mattered was his disagreement it was an affront to what we think. How dare he? And so Clarence Thomas is going to be punished and everybody like him is going to be punished until they see the light and stop disagreeing with us. You will support gay marriage some day and you will love it. And furthermore you’re going to end up thinking that it is superior to traditional marriage. And if you don’t, we are going to continue coming after you.

It doesn’t matter what you think. If it disagrees with us, you’re finished. They make it plain in all of these very public efforts they make of destroying people. The new totalitarian is terrifying because it means that for a fair number of people in what’s supposed to be a democracy, winning simply isn’t enough. They are not really trying to capture something as pedestrian as political equality nor are they satisfied that if they get it. They’re not really seeking a win in the courts or a legal solution. Those are all just merit badges to be collected along the way to a more important goal and that is you will agree and you will love them and you will believe them and you will support them and you will recant your dissent. And we’re going to keep pounding you until you do, and that is what is happening.

*******

Explains a lot…doesn’t it? George Orwell’s “1984” was written like a prophecy! And we are living in such times right now!

It means that the people on the Left taking bakers to court, de-Africanizing Justice Thomas, and making Young an accomplice to rape will not be satisfied with winning. For the new totalitarians, prevailing in the courts or at the ballot boxes isn’t enough if there’s still a suspicion that anyone, anywhere, might still be committing thought crime.

Tom Nichol’s subtitle tells it all in one sentence!

Totalitarians want their rule, and their belief system, to be accepted and self-sustaining – even if it takes bludgeoning every last citizen who disagrees.
