The recent recall elections in Colorado were a magnificent example of grassroots political organizing. Two lawmakers who voted for gun control were voted right out of office. This is the spirit we need to restore God to government.
For those looking for candidates to support, I recommend developing your own personal litmus test. Mine is pro-life, pro-Second Amendment, and pro-American values: compassion, self reliance, free enterprise, etc. I will not support any candidate who doesn’t fit that category.
Before we can recover lost ground, we have to stop giving up current ground. By supporting good candidates and running for office ourselves, we can start to turn this country around.
Even worse than the betrayal of our political leaders, is the betrayal of our religious leaders. And that betrayal is not an accident. The radical progressive Left has worked tirelessly for decades to undermine our churches.
Christianity, and more specifically, the Catholic Church, is the number one enemy of the radical progressive Left. In order for the Left to triumph, Christianity must be destroyed. As Dennis Prager says, “We can have big God or we can have big government, but we can’t have both.”
The radical progressive Left’s war on Christianity is what’s behind the persecution of Christians in the military, the persecution and murder of Christians in Egypt, the persecution of Christians by the media, and the removal of Christianity from society. It’s all part of the Left’s agenda.
Imagine the massive shift in consciousness that would occur if our religious leaders drew a line in the sand and demanded a return to the Judeo-Christian values our country was founded on. Imagine how many of our political and social ills would simply disappear overnight. The change would be cataclysmic.
Abortion, homosexual marriage, sexual indoctrination in the schools, IRS intimidation, the persecution of Christians in the military, liberal judges running the courts, the coddling of Islamic terrorists, Obama’s socialized medicine program, and many more ills would rapidly decline and eventually cease to exist. Guided and encouraged by their religious leaders, God-loving, patriotic Americans would simply refuse to allow these things to continue.
Alas, it’s not happening. And the reason is two-fold.
First, many of our priests, pastors, rabbis, and clergy prefer to be loved than to lead. They’d rather tell their congregation, “We’re all brothers and sisters. Let’s all love each other,” instead of “This is right, and this is wrong.”
They’d rather coddle our political leaders and smile with them before the cameras, than call them out for their crimes and sins.
Many of them live insulated lives, oblivious to the rise of the radical progressive Left. What little news they do receive is filtered through the Leftist controlled media. The Left encourages them to take this timid approach to religion. It plays right into their hands.
They have forgotten that they represent Our Lord here on earth, and that without continual reminders from their religious leaders, the average American will default to the media and the State to instruct them on what’s right and wrong.
This default behavior on behalf of most Americans is perfectly understandable. If the Leftist media says atheism, abortion, promiscuity, homosexuality, transgenderism, socialized medicine, shredding the Constitution, gun control, and the persecution of Christians is all well and good, and our religious leaders say, “Who are we to judge? Love your brother,” then doesn’t it make sense that millions of Americans would be confused and be more likely to base their morality and actions on what the media is telling them than on what they’re getting from religion?
The second reason our religious leaders have betrayed us is much more insidious. In short, our churches have been infiltrated and undermined from within.
Bishop Fulton Sheen was well aware of Communist infiltration of the Catholic Church. He converted Bella Dodd, a teacher for the Communist party. After her defection, she revealed that one of her jobs as a Communist agent was to infiltrate the Catholic Church. In her book School of Darkness, Dodd wrote, “In the 1930′s, we put eleven hundred men into the priesthood in order to destroy the Church from within. The idea was for these men to be ordained, and then climb the ladder of influence and authority as Monsignors and Bishops.”
Manning Johnson was another Communist agent who defected. In 1953, he testified before the House-un-American Activities Committee: “…the Communists discovered that the destruction of religion could proceed much faster through the infiltration of the Church by Communists operating within the Church itself…This policy of infiltrating seminaries was successful beyond even our communist expectations.”
Dodd and Johnson are only two former Communist agents assigned to infiltrate the Church. There were thousands more, and they infiltrated every denomination of Christianity, and that was over fifty years ago. Who knows the extent of infiltration that exists today? Is it any wonder that all denominations of Christianity move farther and farther to the Left?
Is it any wonder that the only Christian pastors we see on the Leftist controlled media are the ones with mega-watt smiles that preach Christian prosperity and never say a word about the evils of abortion, homosexual marriage, or the Leftist takeover of the government?
Is it any wonder that the only time we see Catholic priests on the Leftist controlled media are when they are accused or arrested for scandalous behavior?
Is it any wonder that we never see leaders of other religions on the news being arrested for the exact same scandalous behavior?
To win this battle of good vs. evil, we must open a dialogue with our religious leaders and ask them to return to true Christianity. As Christians, we cannot stand idly by while evil permeates society. We cannot allow the corruption of our government and the attacks on Christianity to continue.
When approaching your religious leaders, better a nudge than a push. Unlike almost all of our political traitors, who began their career with no intention of serving God and country, many of our religious leaders entered their vocations with the best of intentions. They were simply misled along the way.
We must speak to them gently. We must encourage them to study the agenda and track record of the radical progressive Left, and to begin to speak out. Hand them copies of this article and other articles from this site. It will either inspire them or make them angry. And by their fruits, you will know them.
We must encourage our Christian leaders to unite, not to worship together, which many would oppose, but to pool their resources for political purposes in order to defeat the common enemy of Leftism. Expect to be met with heavy resistance, but no one said this battle was going to be easy.
6. Practice Selective Shopping
The radical progressive Left made a lot of noise in the 2012 election about how the greed and racism of the wealthiest of Americans — dubbed the “one percent” — was destroying our country. Millions of Americans took their word for it and voted accordingly. What everyone failed to mention, however, is that practically everyone in the “one percent” either belongs to or supports the radical progressive Left.
Bill Gates and Microsoft, the late Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, George Soros, Teresa Heinz, Michael Bloomberg, Darrell Issa, Steve Bisciotti and the Balitmore Ravens, the Rooney family and the Pittsburgh Steelers, David Geffen, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Apple, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Monsanto, AT&T, Disney, MTV, Nickelodeon, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Time Warner, the NY Times, the Los Angeles Times, General Mills, McDonalds, Pepsi, Coca Cola, Starbucks, labor unions, the NFL, the NBA, the movie industry, the music industry, the porn industry, etc., etc., etc., I could go on for pages, the wealthiest “one percent” of all Americans, and every one of them a confirmed Leftist! (On this one issue, the Left was correct: the greed and racism of the “one percent” is destroying the country.)
Refusing to put even a single penny into the pockets of these traitors is one of the most essential steps we can take to turn the tide in this battle of good vs. evil, and also one of the most neglected. The reason it’s neglected is simple convenience.
The fear of change and inconvenience is one of the primary reasons why otherwise intelligent adults ignore the evidence of our country’s betrayal and takeover by the radical progressive Left and deny its evil intentions. We simply don’t want to inconvenience our pampered lives.
This fear of inconvenience plays right into the hands of the radical progressive Left who have brainwashed society into governing their lives by way of their feelings instead of their intellect. Yet until we stop supporting the very people who are oppressing us, we will never win this war. Every dollar we hold back from tyrants is a victory for liberty.
Nothing hurts worse than a punch to the pocketbook. By keeping our dollars within our own community — those of us who share the Judeo-Christian values which made our country great — we strengthen our base, while simultaneously weakening the base of the radical progressive Left. It is impossible to stress more highly how important this step is.
Does it require a sacrifice on our part? Yes, but outside of prayer, this step could be the most effective action we take to regain our country.
Do we really need that new iPad? Our current computer is fine the way it is.
Do we really need to see that movie? We can get the DVD for free at the library.
Do we really need cable television? I honestly can’t think of a single show worth watching.
Do we absolutely, positively need to consume fast food? Chick-fil-A and In-N-Out Burger are the only restaurant chains I know of that share our conservative values.
Do we really need to fly and support the TSA goons? We can always travel by car, bus, or train.
De we really need to attend that overpriced sporting event? We can watch it or another game on television for free, or, better yet, we can get our own exercise or coach a kid’s sports team.
It’s really not hard at all to find substitutes for all our shopping needs. You’ll likely find yourself saving quite a bit of money, and that’s a good thing. The money we do spend will go towards those who support God, freedom, and the United States of America.
For any entrepreneurs out there, I think there would be a huge market for a directory of companies that embrace Judeo-Christian values. I would love to hear from you.
Selective shopping is an area where our religious leaders could help tremendously, but since they have abdicated their responsibility, it’s up to us to assume leadership and carry on. From this moment on, let’s all begin to ween ourselves away from these companies and individuals, and then refuse to put even a penny of our hard-earned money into their pockets ever again.
The next time you’re tempted to spend money with a company that embraces the platform of the radical progressive Left, think of the hundreds of millions that will be lost to hell if the Left succeeds with their godless agenda. Think of your own soul. Then act accordingly.
7. Use Art, Culture, and Entertainment to Serve God, Elevate Men and Women, and Add Beauty
For thousands of years, the purpose of art, culture, and entertainment was to honor God, elevate men and women, and add beauty to the world. Then the radical progressive Left stepped in.
Today we have a non-stop onslaught of depravity, cruelty, and narcissism masquerading as art, culture, and entertainment. This is not an accident. It’s deliberate.
Art, culture, and entertainment have a tremendous influence on society. The Nazis knew this. When they began to take power in the 1930s, the first people to go were the artists, writers, poets, painters, and actors. The Nazis knew that whatever laws they passed, the people would always follow the artists. The radical progressive Left knows this, too.
It is impossible to overstate the immense damage done to our society by the radical progressive Left’s reshaping of art, culture, and entertainment. Millions of lives and marriages have been destroyed. Generations of young people, raised by well-meaning parents, have had their value systems supplanted by the sick and twisted values of the radical progressive Left.
If we are to triumph in this battle of good vs. evil, it is essential that we immediately reject the art, culture, and entertainment of the Left, and replace it with a culture of beauty.
If you’re an artist, create art that adds beauty to the world. If you’re a musician, create music that elevates the soul. If you’re a writer, create characters that portray men and women at their most noble. If you’re a filmmaker, take a cue from the Kendrick brothers and make movies that honor God and bring out the best in your audience.
If you’re a fan of art, culture, or entertainment, then support those who add beauty to the world, and refuse to spend a penny on any art, culture, or entertainment that does not.
8. Mentor the Young
One of the most regrettable mistakes of the past two generations is that we did not pass on to our young the Judeo-Christian values that made America great. Instead, we allowed them to be molded and shaped by the Leftist controlled media and school system. Now we’re in the mess we’re in.
The radical progressive Left did not make this mistake. From generation to generation, they have successfully passed on to their young the socialist, anti-American agenda of the Left. And they will likely continue to do so until their ultimate defeat.
The battle for good vs. evil may not be won in our lifetime. We have a tremendous responsibility to prepare and groom the next generation to carry on the fight after we’re gone.
We must teach our young what it means to be an American. That America is a state of mind, and a state of behavior that transcends all races and nationalities. That America was founded on the belief that every man, woman, and child receives their rights from God, and that the chief purpose of government is to protect and respect those God-given rights, as affirmed in the Declaration of Independence.
We must encourage our young to be less concerned with money and fame, and more concerned with leading good lives. To seek careers in the major spheres of influence and power: government, education, unions, big business, the media, the military, and the church. To seek friends and spouses that share their values of God, family, and country.
We have a duty to prepare our young for the massive levels of propaganda and indoctrination they will face in the school system and in the media. For the inevitable disappointments they will face in life when they realize the magnitude of evil that is represented by the radical progressive Left.
We must educate them in the true history of Christianity and the world, in order to counter the revisionist history they will be taught in school. We must instill in them a love and appreciation for language, art, and literature, in order to counter the obscene and ugly culture of the Left.
Most of all, we must teach them to honor God, and that our time here on earth is but a twinkling of an eye compared to eternity in the afterlife. That saving souls for Heaven is the noblest aim we can aspire to.
9. Find Humor in Life
To face our struggle with humor is to face it with courage.
One of the more interesting observations I’ve had in life is the difference in humor that conservatives have from the Left. Conservatives find humor in the foibles and struggles of life. Their laughs are a hearty exclamation point to the worst that life throws at them, and a declaration that no matter how tough life gets, they will carry on. Conservatives are happy with life no matter how bad it gets.
The radical progressive Left finds humor in the lowest common denominator of mans’s existence. They shine a mirror on man’s most private and distressed moments, and their laughs are a slap of humiliation across the face of an already anguished brother. They revel in cruel and sadistic humor. Leftists seem to hate life no matter how good it gets.
In the battle of good vs. evil, we will face many trials and tribulations. The more humor we find, the lighter the load will be, the quicker the journey will seem, and the happier will be the outcome.
And I have to believe that we will find humor in Heaven.
The simple steps outlined here require no money, other than the cost of mailing a few letters. They do require time, commitment, and compassion.
On the surface, it appears that the radical progressive Left has every advantage over us: they control the media, the government, and the banking system; they have an endless supply of money and resources; and, unlike us, they have no moral conscience and will stop at nothing, not even murder or genocide, to achieve their godless agenda.
But we have the greater advantage. On our side, we have God, justice, and love.
In the words of Ronald Reagan: “You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.”
And, in the words of Winston Churchill:
“Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves.”
