    To be a Liberal, Leftist, Progressive, whatever, one must not only fail to recognize the myriad inconsistencies and failures of the doctrines of that faith....

    ....but one must steadfastly refuse to admit that evil actually exists as the force that innervates those doctrines, the slaughter of millions under its auspices, notwithstanding.


    1. "Just because any religious idea, any idea of any god at all, any flirtation even with a god, is the most inexpressible foulness, particularly tolerantly (and often even favourably) accepted by the democratic bourgeoisie—for that very reason it is the most dangerous foulness, the most shameful “infection.” A million physical sins, dirty tricks, acts of violence and infections are much more easily discovered by the crowd, and therefore are much less dangerous, than the nubile, spiritual idea of god, dressed up in the most attractive “ideological” costumes." Letter from Lenin to Maxim Gorky, Written on November 13 or 14, 1913 Lenin 55. TO MAXIM GORKY

    Perhaps the most precise explanation for the Left's hatred of religion is that it reveals that evil exists.


    2. But the Left itself knows that evil exists, and sometimes admits it's dedication to same.
    Barack Obama got his start as a community organizer in Chicago,saying it was "the best education I ever had, better than anything I got at Harvard Law School." And while he downplays his connections to ACORN, claiming he worked for churches, he was trained by (Saul) Alinsky's Industrial Areas Foundation and then spent years in the 1980s teaching the Alinsky method to others through several Alinsky offshoots such as Project Vote and Developing Communities Project in Chicago.

    Barack Obama's mentor was proud of his affiliation with the personification of evil:

    "Alinsky dedicated his book to none other than the fallen angel Lucifer, yes that Lucifer, whom he describes as "the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment (that would be God) and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom." Webutante: The Late Saul Alinsky, Obama's Radical Community Organizer Inspirer-in-Chief




    3. Three stood in the way of world domination by that major iteration of depravity, 'The Evil Empire.'

    "Twenty-six months separated the elections of John Paul II and Ronald Reagan, and Margaret Thatcher began her premiership roughly in between. Fewer than three months (to be precise, seventy days) separated Reagan’s election and the attempt on his life by John Hinckley on March 30, 1981. John Paul II narrowly survived an attempted assassination a mere forty-three days later, in May 13. And three years later Thatcher escaped unharmed when an IRA bomb intended to kill her exploded in the Grand Hotel in Brighton on October 12, 1984, killing five people and wounding many others, including her close friend and ally Norman Tebbit.

    There is an almost cinematic neatness about this series of crimes. In The Omen or The Exorcist they would be readily explained as the forces of Satan seeking to destroy the apostles of hope before they could do too much good (though a more formulaic film director than God would have insisted that Satan move his attempt on Thatcher’s life up to 1981). This slightly eerie impression is reinforced by the extraordinary narrowness of the escape of all three intended victims. At least two of those intended victims believed that God had intervened to preserve their lives, and guided their later action by the light of that belief."
    John O'sullivan, "The President, the Pope, and the Prime Minister: Three Who Changed the World," p.65-66



    Today there may be a different seat of, and for, evil.....but it exists, it is powerful, and it need be defeated.

    I think the left recognized that evil exists, and openly embraces it.

    With a body-count of 50 million unborn human beings through abortion over the last 40 years, I'd have to say yes: Liberalism is inherently evil. It far surpasses the evil of Nazi Germany which exterminated 6 million Jews,and is vying for first place place with the Communist ideology, which has exterminated over a hundred million.

    You people have no idea what a liberal is, much less what liberalism represents..No surprise, people like you have to make an enemy to justify your illogical operations and deceit..

    The only thing I'd add to your post is the inclusion of Liberalism's predecessors....Communism, Nazism, Fascism, Socialism.....


    It's the reason why I wrote 'Leftists' in the OP.

    Of the assassination attempt on his life on March 30, 1981, Ronald Reagan wrote in his personal diary, “Getting shot hurts. Still my fear was growing because no matter how hard I tried to breathe, it seemed I was getting less and less air. I focused on that tiled ceiling and prayed. But I realized I couldn’t ask for God’s help while at the same time I felt hatred for the mixed up young man who had shot me. Isn’t that the meaning of the lost sheep? We are all God’s children and therefore equally beloved by Him. I began to pray for his soul and that he would find his way back to the fold.”

    I think Trump is a forgiving man as well. I think that's one of the reasons the left can't wrap their collective hive brain around him. He can debate people and assert that they are wrong, wrong, wrong...but then turn around the next day and have a pleasant conversation with them and say nice things about them. They see that as hypocritical. I see it as forgiving and Christ-like.
