I used to be a (insert right-wing political profile here), but then…

Many WordPress readers I’m sure have notice one blog posting that’s been on the “Hawt Posts” list for a few day now. It’s from the unreasonable faith  site. The author of that site claims he used to be an evangelical Christian, but has since seen the light–or the darkeness as it may be–and has become what I would call a mini-antichrist.  I’m loath to post a link to his Hawt article, the title of which states: How To Stump an Anti-Abortionist With One Question. The question:

If abortion was illegal, what should be done with the women who have illegal abortions?

I see absolutely no brilliance or significant insight in this question, but given the Nature of the WordPress audience, people are flocking to this posting like it was a pile of Barack Obama’s dirty underwear waiting to be sold on ebay.

My article is not about abortion. It is about people who lie about past political or religious affiliations in order to gain a moral legitimacy. I first noticed this phenomena while listening to Rush Limbaugh. People would call in, identifying themselves as former Republicans, or former conservatives. They would then proceed to plaster Limbaugh with a tirade of left-wing rhetoric as if they’d memorized the writings of Voltair and Rosseau. And in only a few months! Because it was only as recently as that horrible right-winger, GW Bush had invaded Iraq that these oh-so-introspective former “right-wing-nutjobs” had found their Damascus Road–or in most cases–its antithesis.

Limbaugh could pick these folks out immediately, and he always called them on it. An immediate giveaway was a male–if slightly effeminate–using overly verbose and academic language. Yup–what we have here is a spy for the intelligentsia.

Well, I pick up on these liars pretty quickly myself. They try to use people’s innate desire to get along and become one with the masses, in order to circumvent these people’s logic. “See, I was where you are, and I’ve changed my mind. I can see things from all perspectives because I’ve looked at all perspectives–and I found what was best. You should follow me.”

I remember having a debate about the Bush administration with one fellow. He told me that he used, to be a conservative but now, after Bush dashed all of his hopes by lying to get us to go to war, in order to smash all of the poor, brown-skin people living in Iraq, he had lost faith in the conservative agenda and was now a liberal. And an atheist. Hmmm. I was suspicious. Then I took a look at his book case. I found some writings by Gore Vidal. Gotcha. No person who was a conservative a few years after the Iraq war began goes from thinking we should kill Saddam Hussein to reading Gore Vidal. Also, this person had videos about how the New Testament was written by a bunch of hucksters. Wow, George Bush really did a number on this fellow, didn’t he? Dashed his belief in God. Bush would surely burn for that one…

It seems to me, that the normal events to occur after one loses faith in a political or religious belief, would be a kind of sullen, grey neutrality. One would begin to question everything and be unable to go on crusades against one’s former views. Most of these people would start to see that the world is a difficult place to decrypt, not that the world is the exact opposite of how one saw it before.

Always be careful when someone tells you that they used to be one thing, but then by a not-so-devine intervention, became the exact opposite. Many times these people are using a subtle psychological ploy to force others into seeing things their way.

Killing Christ a second time

Well, it’s Christmas time again, and guess who’s back in town?

The great defenders of our national pride, the ACLU. Are they here to make sure that blacks aren’t being lynched, or that Muslims aren’t locked away for just being Muslim? No, per usual, they have more important things to do in this great country of ours: Ensure that Christmas is celebrated behind closed doors.

Even here in the army, signs advertising the upcoming Christmas party at my unit had to be torn down and replaced with the obligatory, Holiday Party signs.

Looking through the news, the stories are too numerous to begin to talk about a singular one. but I’m sure you know that drill: Atheist sees a Jesus manger amidst his city’s ornaments and goes on a godless crusade to have it removed.

My view on these Scrooge Moonbats is the same as it is on every other type of war: If you feel you’re fighting for the right thing, you never give up. You keep fighting, because when you stop–your enemy wins. And that’s just what most of this manger-haters are: Enemies to my damn country. What in the heck do they do with their lives all day long. Do they have things that they enjoy; children, wives, girlfriends, dogs–A COLD BEER?!

I think most of these people are just miserable to the core. The mere idea of others having joy brings them angst, so let’s get on with tearing down one of the most innocent moments of our Christian heritage: a little baby, in a crib–in a place where animals are kept. A baby who grew to a man, whose name was Jesus and who changed the course of history, who according to my faith did what I could not do: Made me right with God.

Anyone who is offended by the manger scene, deserves the discomfort of being offended.

The Left wants this country to be a spiritual void. They want us empty. But nature abhors a vacuum, and we’ll believe in something, somehow no matter how vile if only it fills that vacuum.

Stand up, Christians. Don’t sleep now. You should be outraged. Make your arguments known, and never, never let this country fail to hear the words of our founding fathers, who repeatedly invoked the name of God, whose words if uttered now would produce the spiritual version of shock and awe amongst Baby-Jesus haters.

God is dead. God remains dead.

God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it? ~ Nietzsche~ Thus Spake Zarathustra

In 1885, Nietzsche announced the death of God to a stunned world. Yes–We–killed God. And we mutilate His corpse even today. The media hacks at His body at every chance. Look! It’s another fallen pastor! This proves that there is no God, at least no Christian God.

And of course the Darwinists make it their reason for living, kicking the rotting meat that was God. It seems the only reason they want to study science at all; to silence that nasty little voice in their head that whispers: “Perhaps God…is.”

As unbelief becomes more prevalent, I expect our society to slowly come apart at the seems.
