Don’t Tell Me to be Tolerant!

Monday, January 30th, 2017

The word tolerate originally meant “to endure without repugnance; put up with“, regarding wrong behavior or action that was being tolerated. In other words, we would allow wrong behaviors or actions to be ignored or dismissed without punitive results or corrective actions. The word directly implies guilt of some sort, whether violations of laws or social norms. To be tolerant was to look the other way without doing or saying anything to correct the misbehavior.

But as with many terms, our liberal humanist friends have redefined the word in order to spread their liberal humanist ideology. Tolerate no longer implies guilt. The term now means to put up with anything that is different from you, to include all things that you might consider “wrong”. The new definition seeks to demonize Biblical morality. It seeks to neutralize Biblical declarations of sin and abominable behaviors. Take away the guilt factor, and everyone “can do what is right in their own eyes” (a biblical condemnation of widespread sin).

The liberal humanist has perverted the original meaning even further, by equating “tolerance” with “forced acceptance”. To see this in action, look no further than the rash of wedding cake companies and photographers who have been put out of business for refusing to serve gay weddings. These good people serve gays routinely, but were unwilling to compromise their principles by participating in a ceremony that violates their personal convictions regarding Biblical standards.

You would think that someone who is so forceful about tolerance would be tolerant themselves. But alas, their hypocrisy is blatantly obvious when they refuse to accept a decision that goes against their own convictions. (such as the will of the people to elect a President.) The inexcusable hysteria that continues even months after the election screams the fact that they refuse to be tolerant when they don’t get their way.

Tolerance” is more analogous to “compromise” when it comes to a system of values, norms, and behavioral standards. Tolerance is not standing up for what you know to be righteous behavior. Tolerance is sticking your head in the sand while the world around you spins into depravity. Don’t tell me to be tolerant.



It Wasn’t the Hacking, Folks!

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

All this hullabaloo about the Russians hacking the DNC for the purpose of influencing the election is simply not true. I have no doubt the Russians have been actively involved in hacking US systems, both governmental and industrial, for many years. We’ve been actively hacking them as well. As long as there are computerized systems, there will be hacking attempts. It’s a fact of life in the digital age.  It is the modus operandi of the liberals to create a strawman argument, then shout it long and loud, until people actually believe the lies as if they are fact. That is true of their accusations of racism, and all the “-phobics” and “-ogenies” they have spewed against conservatives and their leaders. It is true of the intent of the Russian hacking.

The DNC information (emails) provided to Wikileaks was provided by a disgruntled insider from within the DNC, itself. The reason the liberal media is pushing the Russian conspiracy theory, is that they, the media, should have been investigating the DNC goings on, and they, the media, should have been the ones to expose the corruption. The media exists as a representative of the people to provide overwatch on those people and agencies who run our government – to protect us from possible corruption by exposing it whenever and wherever it happens. (Read Patrick Henry’s writings.)  The media does NOT exist to participate in the cover-up of that corruption. It does NOT exist to create and communicate propaganda. But that is precisely what our main stream media has been doing for years.

If the MSM had been doing its job, Wikileaks would have nothing to expose, and indeed, would not even exist. I’m not saying that Wikileaks is righteous in what they have done, as they have overstepped the bounds of national security on more than one occasion. However, in regards to the DNC email scandal, Wikileaks merely provided what our MSM should have provided on their own. That disgruntled DNC worker knew he could not go to the MSM with the emails, because the media are part of the problem. He had to go to Wikileaks in order to be heard and taken seriously. THAT, folks, is the problem that NO ONE is addressing.

This has hurt the MSM as measured by a steady decline in viewership, and it has been going on for more than 4 years.  A little research into the viewership numbers shows Fox boasting a viewership 3 1/2 times that of CNN, and 2 1/2 times that of MSNBC.  The lowest rated primetime show on Fox was significantly higher than the highest rated prime time show on CNN for 2016.  Every single show on Fox outperformed their competition at CNN and MSNBC. Americans are clearly aware of the media bias from the MSM, and we are sick and tired of it.

MAJOR UPDATE!!! Be sure your sins will find you out!  The latest egregious leak of CIA secrets to Wikileaks has within its contents evidence that our own CIA was doing the hacking, and trying to make it look like the Russians were doing it! How politicized and corrupt are our intelligence agencies? This truly is George Orwell’s 1984 world. The swamp is much more pervasive and contaminated than we could have ever imagined.

The Difference between Conservatives and Liberals

Friday, January 6th, 2017

Conservatives believe that man is inherently evil. We don’t teach our kids to be bad – they are bad instinctively. We work for years to teach them how to be good. Man is naturally rebellious toward God. Man is naturally self-centered, greedy, and always “looking out for number 1”. You have to be born again (spiritually) in order to break the cycle of perpetual evil in your thoughts, words, and deeds.

Liberals believe that man is inherently good. We don’t need a God to make us good. We have no need for God. We are our own ultimate authority, and we can solve all our problems ourselves. Liberals who say they believe in God don’t believe in the same God that conservatives believe in. Or at least, they don’t accept God’s authority over them.

Liberals believe we can set our own rules. Conservatives acknowledge God’s rules for right living. Liberals don’t believe in absolute truth; conservatives do.

So the difference between conservatives and liberals is how we view our relationship with God. And that, my friend, is the crux of all socio-political strife in our world.

Trump is not the Answer

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

Donald J. Trump will be our President for at least the next 4 years. His promise to “Make America Great Again” is meaningless until the underlying promises are actually implemented. The battle for the future of America is not an economic battle. It is not a social battle. It is not even a moral battle, or a political battle. The battle for the future of America is truly a spiritual battle. Yes, there are significant issues in each of those other areas I mentioned. DJT can appoint the most conservative justices, boost jobs and trade and education, strengthen our military, drain the political swamp, make our streets safer, stem the flow of illegal aliens, – he can impact most aspects of our daily American lives. But if the heart of our citizenship is not turned towards God, all those improvements will be just a futile effort to save our country.

There will still be a powerful core of subversive, perverted, corrupt, godless people out there just waiting their chance to take back the controls of our Nation. Yes, this country needs all those political promises to be fulfilled from Mr. Trump. But what we need more is a Christian revival – the likes of which have not been seen since Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses on that Wittenburg church door. A second Reformation would secure America’s future better than all the promises of politicians.

I would agree that Mr. Trump is not the Answer to America’s problems. God is.


60-day UPDATE:  March 9, 2017:  When I said there “will still be a powerful core of subversive, perverted, corrupt, godless people out there just waiting their chance to take back the controls of our Nation”, I never dreamed those who are already in all departments of our government would be so subversive and seditious. This is getting scary, folks. We have treasonous actions happening daily against our government, specifically against the Trump administration. Anarchy or civil war is right around the corner if we don’t clean the swamp swiftly and thoroughly.
