Spiritual Religion is Essential to Freedom

Liberals are not really pushing for separation of church and state; there has never been an established spiritual religion.  Their goal is no less than to destroy spiritual religion and to impose socialism as the secular state religion under the banner of social justice.  They call it scientific progress, the same terminology employed in the French Revolution’s bloody Reign of Terror and in Adolph Hitler’s Holocaust.

Survival of our formerly inalienable individual liberties is now purely a matter of chance, of public-opinion-of-the-moment.  That?s why liberal intellectuals place such a high value on ?evolving? public opinion, as a sort of Darwinian creation of successive new species of acceptable government powers.  If the public can stomach it, the government can do it, no matter what the Constitution actually says.

Theocracy: the Origin of American Democracy

The nature of theocracy in the New England colonies is widely misunderstood.  Few recognize that the New England town meeting, the prototype of American institutions of democratic self-government, was nothing more than the governing process of each Congregational (Puritan) church community.

Lebanese Civilian Casualties

Liberals in Europe and the United States, which of course includes most of the news media, cry crocodile tears over civilian casualties in Lebanon. 

We must pray for and sympathize with innocent women and children caught in the crossfire.  But we must also remember three points:

First, Hezbollah, a part of the Lebanese government, started the fight by crossing a UN-mandated international border between Israel and Lebanon and attacking an Israeli army unit.

Second, by deliberate design, attacking terrorists like Hezbollah and Hamas without killing and wounding innocent civilians is impossible, because terrorists intermingle their weapons and forces with civilian populations.

Third, as reader Errol Phillips notes, a significant portion of “civilian” casualties reported by the press are actually Hezbollah fighters, who are not uniformed army troops, but technically civilians.

Christian Service Is Not Theocracy

If religious Jews and Christians are true to the Bible, liberals need have no fear of theocracy.  We are instructed to think of helping other people, as individuals, not to create a police state that compels behavior.

Theocracy and Liberal Paranoia

Liberals express fear of an imagined conspiracy to impose a brutal Christian theocracy upon the nation.  Ironically, Christians and religious Jews are subjected to a real liberal jihad that claims the prerogative to ban expressions of their faith outside the closed doors of homes and religious meeting places.

Why Joe Lieberman is Behind in the Democratic Primary Polls

Hendrik Hertzberg, the far-left radical editor and columnist of The New Yorker magazine, gives us his analysis of why Connecticut liberals despise Senator Joseph Lieberman.  Unfortunately for Senator Lieberman, the Connecticut Democratic Party is overwhelmingly populated with left-wingers.

My take on the matter is that liberals in general, and Connecticut liberals in particular, can’t tolerate anyone who professes a belief in God.  Senator Lieberman, a religious Jew, does exactly that, even though he has one of the most liberal voting records in the Senate.

His opponent’s grandfather was a darling of the Greenwich Village intellectuals and one of the best known socialist atheists of the 1920s.  What more could a Connecticut liberal want?
