By Ray DiLorenzo, STAND UP AMERICA—
Liberalism or Progressivism is not about equal rights, a color-blind society, social justice (whatever that means), tolerance, the little guy or comforting the poor. It’s about CONTROL – creating a secular, socialist society–replacing God with government that reaches its tentacles everywhere. They claim individual empowerment, but are determined to achieve government supremacy. In essence, it is about Marxism, but in disguise.
The God of the Bible, God-given rights, the concept of sin, absolute right and wrong, the Ten Commandments (not the ten suggestions) after all, does not meet with the approval of the modern liberal (Marxist). It interferes with their lifestyle.
The greatest objection, I believe, of the liberal to Christianity, is the acknowledgement of something bigger and greater than themselves.
To know what liberals want, go to their publications. Most progressive politicians will never admit they are liberal or say what their true feelings are. They know most Americans would be appalled, but in their writing liberals are becoming audacious.
No magazine, print or online, epitomizes the cancer that is infecting this nation better than Salon Magazine. Unlike so many liberal politicians and their adherents, Salon says what so many are just thinking but reluctant to say. With Salon Magazine, we have a glimpse into what kind of country modern Democrats like Hillary Clinton want and how they view the world. Let me give you some sample Salon articles:
The Catholic Church’s American Downfall: Why Its Demographic Crises Is Great News for the Country – Salon, 5/21/2015
The Rise of Irreligion is the GOP’s Real Demographic Crisis – A widening “Godless Gap” presents Christian Conservatives With A Choice: Get With the Times or Shrink to Obscurity – Salon, 8/20/2016
In other words, according to Salon, the GOP must dump Jesus or risk irrelevance in a Post Christian America (Breitbart).
Another good illustration of what liberals want can be found in the homosexual movement, an important tool for destroying the culture. The Gay Rights Platform of 1972, adopted by the National Coalition of Gay Organizations, reveals much. Some very disturbing demands were revealed but temporarily abandoned by the gay movement when they proved, at the time, to be politically unachievable.
Federal Demands (abridged):
1. Federal encouragement and support for sex education courses, prepared and taught by gay women and men, presenting homosexuality as a valid, healthy alternative
State Demands (abridged):
1. Repeal of all state laws governing the age of sexual consent (legalize pedophilia).
2. Repeal of all legislative provisions that restrict the sex or number of persons entering into a marriage unit.
3. Repeal all laws prohibiting solicitation for private voluntary sexual liaisons and laws prohibiting prostituiton, both male and female.
For decades, liberals preached tolerance and love, but have given us, instead, bias and hate. A good example of ‘liberal tolerance’ can be found north of Boston. Gordon College, a small Christian school, bans all sexual relationships outside of marriage, gay or straight (its structures against homosexual acts apply only to behavior not desire). Because of this, Gordon College is in danger of losing their accreditation, a death sentence to any college.
The gay movement has since achieved government support, passage of hate-crime laws in all 50 states even though they are unconstitutional, passage of laws that make homophobic speech illegal (unconstitutional), permeate every level of government with gay-friendly officials to codify the gay agenda, portray homosexuals as victims, legalize gay marriage to wreck the traditional institution of marriage, attack the Bible and churches, invent new translations of the Bible making it appear to approve of homosexuality.
Liberals must achieve two final things that are vital to complete the control of American society: Destroy the Judeo-Christian culture and repeal of the 2nd Amendment. The destruction of our Judeo-Christian culture is well underway and should be complete in our lifetime. Pew Research says 23% of Americans say they are unaffiliated with any religion, up from 20% just three years ago. Fifty years of secondary school and college indoctrination have left an indelible mark on our culture.
The repeal of the 2nd Amendment will prove to be more problematic. An armed citizenry would be unworkable to any Marxist regime. An attempt at gun confiscation would be a dangerous proposition for both sides. Liberals will probably have to attack either the manufacturers or what makes guns work, ammunition. Eliminating ammunition will turn all guns into museum curiosities.
What liberals want should be no mystery–control over every aspect of our lives, health care, what you eat, what you think, where you live, where you go to school, what you drive, even who lives and who dies. Tolerance will go in one direction, theirs.
Liberals (Marxist progressives) like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are true believers. They will stop at nothing to destroy our freedoms and what our founders have built. Lying and deceit is no stumbling-block. As Americans, we need to reclaim the power given to us by God and our founding fathers–to control our government rather than having them control us.
