I recently wrote about the fact that Liberals don’t really hate war, but they demonstrably do hate freedom — and America, too. The numerous responses I got to that intentionally provocative topic were quite interesting, to say the least. Predictably, most Conservatives seemed to love the concept.
Meanwhile, most Liberals really “hated” it. Funny how intolerant these Left-wing, progressive, sometimes-defenders of the virtue of universal “tolerance” can be when it’s their own ox getting gored. I truly think some of these Woodstock Nation peaceniks might get a little violent if provoked.
So then I got to thinking, “What else do Liberals hate?” The logical answer to that question is: Liberals hate God, too.
I reasoned that if you love something (or someone), you usually want to keep it around, preserve and protect it, even nurture it and watch it grow strong and flourish. If, on the other hand, you hate something, you generally want to get rid of it, banish it, or maybe even kill it.
Now my Mama always told me, “Actions speak louder than words.” So what have been the Liberals’ consistent attitudes and actions toward God? Frankly, for at least the past half a century or so, they have been pretty hostile.
First, in the early 1960s, the atheists and the ACLU combined to convince the Supreme Court to ban both formal prayer and Bible reading from the public education process.
(Now bear in mind, as recently as 1892 the Supreme Court had specifically cited the “mass of organic utterances that this is a Christian nation.” So their 180-degree change of course to require “separation of Church and State” 70 years later was truly a reversal of historic proportions — not to mention a legal proposition theretofore unheard of in all of American history.)
Once they had successfully kicked God out of school, the Liberal secular humanists went after God’s laws in the public square. Look at the Ten Commandments — a perfectly good set of morals and values that just so happen to have been the cornerstone of Western Civilization and jurisprudence for 2,000 years or so — yet for 40 years Liberals have fought religiously (oxymoron) to remove all reference to these God-ordained decrees from schools and courthouses across the land.
Simultaneously, along the way, a new generation of super-secular Scientists replaced the Biblical account of Divine Creation as a manifestation of God’s handiwork with the logically absurd theory that we humans have evolved from apes (recently) and pond scum (ultimately). Today these pseudo-intellectual, self-styled “genius experts” even ridicule the perfectly valid concept of Intelligent Design, derisively calling it “junk science.” No inquiring open minds here: nothing but vintage Darwin will do for these Liberal denizens of our academic ivory towers.
In some places, judges have taken swearing on the Bible out of the courtroom: no more “So help me, God” oaths allowed. Now there is an effort afoot to take “In God We Trust” off of our money, and “One Nation, under God” out of the Pledge of Allegiance.
Let a high school Valedictorian utter the name of Jesus, or a preacher pray before the Friday night football game, and the ACLU is hell-bent for Federal Court. Santa Claus and Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer are OK for our children, but don’t let anybody be assaulted by the sight of that Baby in the Manger. Retail giant WalMart has even replaced all references to Christmas with the bland “Happy Holidays,” lest thin-skinned Liberals be offended while shopping.
Now comes the latest NewsMax.com report about the U.S. Air Force Academy, where “new guidelines for religious tolerance” officially discourage public prayer and personal evangelism by cadets. One of the usual suspects on the Anti-Religious Left, spokesman Rob Boston of the Americans United for Separation of Church and State, has even complained about some Evangelical Christian chaplains who “are not supposed to be proselytizing on the government dime.” Imagine that — a Christian chaplain who might dare to tell people about God! It’s simply scandalous.
If these warped, God- rejecting Liberals have their way, eventually they will completely banish God from all public life . . . period. You don’t treat something or someone you love this way. You only act this way toward things you hate.
