Let’s ban Cultural Marxism before trying anything else

Diagnosing the root cause of a problem is the first step in solving it.

A weekly gathering of friends had the mass murder in Las Vegas as the topic de jour and a heartfelt discussion about what to do. A friend I’ve known for 10 years – and who has never voiced a political opinion – expressed support of strict gun control. I pointed out the many cases where that has only made the situation worse and that the murderer could have used a number of different methods to accomplish the same goal. She asked quite earnestly what we could do about the problem and my thoughtful response was that we need to go back to where we were 40 – 50 years ago. I said that everyone needs to consider that semi-automatic firearms have been around for over 100 years, repeating firearms for over 160 and edged weapons since the stone age. Therefore, it has nothing to do with the weaponry and everything to do with what has been taking place the past few decades. Her heartfelt response was that we can’t go back…..

That conversation has most likely been echoed around the country this week and to put it bluntly, obsessing over ‘Bump-stocks’ and Intergalactic Background Checks will do nothing to solve the problem. This is not about how some commit mass murder, but why they do it and what has changed over the time period that this has become depressingly commonplace.

What has changed in the past 40 – 50 years?

Well, many have already guessed that it is the gradual shifting away from a moral grounding in the country, but why is this the case? There are several possible sources but the prime suspect would have to be the havoc wreaked by the Left and it’s agenda of Cultural Marxism.

For those unfamiliar with the term, this was born of the Marxist frustration after WWI when proletariat revolutions didn’t break out everywhere as predicted. They decided that the people were too oppressed by society to know what was good for them in the glorious Utopian theory of Marxism. They reasoned that the only way to get the people to accept their philosophy would be to demolish existing society so it could be replaced with their conceptions of ‘heaven on Earth’. Consequently, they began the ‘long march’ through the institutions and attempted to destroy our culture with the battering ram of Critical Theory. If you would like to find out more about this and how it will supposedly lead to a wondrous Utopia, check into many of the courses offered by most institutions of “higher” learning.

The past 40 – 50 years has seen Cultural Marxism ravage the country, leaving its heritage and moral grounding bruised and battered, manifesting itself in horrific mass murder attacks. So how do we do to turn this around? Following the same road will only lead to a dead end. The only way we can save ourselves is by reversing what has taken place and ridding ourselves of this Marxist pestilence.

Reversing the course of Cultural Marxism

We need to become familiar with our founding documents and the intellectual foundation on which they rest. We need to know why the founding fathers created the best form of government ever envisioned. We have to emphasize and be proud of the Judeo-Christen roots of our nation and how it is unique in world history.

We need to stop sending our children to these glorified indoctrination centers so they can be taught societal poison of the Left [ And don’t get me started on the other disingenuous labels they use]. Schools are meant to teach people how to think instead of what to think, and we have to get back to that paradigm.

We need to stop accepting the cultural rot that the left incessantly throws our way. We need to vote with our dollars and only accept decent entertainment.

Finally, we also need to study the enemy’s immoral and parasitic ideology and it’s repeated failures down the centuries. We need to be able to contrast that with ours of freedom of the individual and economic liberty and how the left’s socialist national agenda is the death of these things. President Ronald Reagan summed it up quite succinctly:

“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.”

In short, we have to push back on all fronts against the left’s agenda of cultural Marxism and their attempt to destroy what made the United States the exceptional nation the that it is. And we need to get back to having a moral grounding based on our Judeo-Christen roots.

Think of this as your homework assignment America…. and trust me, there will be a test on it later on.

How likely is it that a single protein can form by chance?

How likely is it that a single protein can form by chance

To really answers the question of whether life was created or came about by random chance, we need to take a mathematical look at things. It may be easier to form our opinions based on something we read in a junior high science book, but there really is more to it than the surface questions asked and answered by scientists and theologians alike.

For the faithful, it comes down to faith. For the scientific, it also comes down to faith. Whose faith is more likely to be correct?

Part of the answer can be found in this short video. Those who think there’s no faith associated with scientific theories clearly don’t understand the mathematics behind the science they claim to hold dear.

When will people be forced to apologize for anti-Christian Tweets?

When will people be forced to apologize for anti-Christian Tweets

There’s a trend that has been growing for some time that is reaching a tipping point now. The trend is this: when someone becomes a big story in the news, their Twitter accounts are scoured from beginning to end in order to find Tweets that offend a particular group or protected class. In many cases, this offended group has been the LGBTQ comunity, such as the recent cases of Kevin Hart and Kyler Murray.

Hart was set to host the upcoming Academy Awards when it was “discovered” the comedian used anti-LGBTQ slurs in the past. He deleted the Tweets and apologized, but still felt it necessary to pull out of the Oscars after so much backlash.

Murray, the Heisman trophy winner, was forced to apologize after reports of his Tweets used the same slurs when he was 14- and 15-years-old.

Bigotry in all its forms is contemptible. But where do we draw the line between actual bigotry and unfortunate uses of words or opinions in the past that have been deemed unacceptable today?

Should President Obama (and for that matter, Hillary Clinton) be demonized by the LGBTQ community, mainstream media, and leftists for their perspectives a decade ago? Lest we forget, both announced sharp opposition to gay marriage when they were running for president in 2008. Which is worse, a potential head of state calling for marriage to be defined as being between a man and woman or a teenager in high school referring to someone as a “fag”?

Democratic politicians are apparently allowed to evolve in their beliefs, but comedians and college football players are not.

Anti-Christian Tweets

Sadly, some of the very people who demonize others on Twitter for using unacceptable terms in the past are the same people who also demonize Christians today. I’ve been combing through Tweets of many of the most outspoken proponents of LGBTQ rights, accusers of Islamophopia, and other anti-bigotry leaders. In many cases, these people who are against bigotry demonstrate their own bigotry towards the Judeo-Christian faiths without being big news stories.

I’m not posting the Tweets here. I will not participate in whataboutism, nor do I condone using someone’s past Tweets to highlight their alleged bigotry. There’s a difference between the militant and inexcusable posts by people like Louis Farrakhan and the posts be people like Murray, Hart, or the anti-Christian posts of their detractors. They might see it as okay to demonize people like Hart and Murray for their Tweets, but I will not participate in Twitter witch hunts on the opposite end of the spectrum. Both practices are wrong.

So the question really isn’t about when we start calling out anti-Christian Tweets. It’s about why we should openly debate each other’s perspectives without being condemned for our own perspectives. If someone Tweets something against the Judeo-Christian faith, I wouldn’t expect the Oscars to ban them from being their host. I would see it as an opportunity to share my own perspectives and hopefully show some who are against my faith that there’s something worth exploring.

Today, if you Tweet something deemed unacceptable by the LGBTQ community, you’re in jeopardy of losing much. If you Tweet something against the Judeo-Christian faiths, the left sees it as acceptable. Social media is the most hypocritical medium around.

9 discoveries that confirm the Bible

9 discoveries that confirm the Bible

In this extremely interesting short video detailing archaeological discoveries that confirm the historical accuracy of the Bible, the folks at World Video Bible School highlight some amazing evidence. I don’t know much about WVBS, but I can endorse this video itself.

Here’s the first of the 9 discoveries:

The Pilate Inscriptions

In 1961 in an Italian sponsored dig in Caesarea, archaeologists uncovered a stone that had a Latin inscription on it that said “Pontius Pilatus… prefect of Judea.” That Pilate is mentioned in the Gospel accounts on several occasions. You read in John 18:29:

Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man?

The find verifying the New Testament statement that Pilate was the prefect of Judea.

8 more

All of these discoveries are proper, indisputable archaeological finds. It’s one thing to contest the Bible’s authenticity as the Word of God, though its very presence and the takeaways we can draw from it point the faithful to the truth. However, claiming it as being historically wrong is being debunked regularly.

The authenticity of the Bible as a historical document is no longer a valid argument against it. As more archaeological evidence points to its physical truths, so too should its words and lessons be completely trustworthy to those seeking the truth.
