1.According to the novel “Red Sparrow,” the Russian’s intelligence services were exceptionally good at compromising, and co-opting Americans…even American agents, into working for them. And, there is some evidence for that, some spies having given up their values, heritage, upbringing for various rewards, or by certain threats.

But no nation, agency, organization is as good at it as American Leftists have been at forcing everyday Americans to, ….if I may paraphrase R.E.M., …agree to ‘losing their religion.’ …. swapping for the religion of the state, Militant Secularism.



Sometimes they’re really outspoken about it:

“Rahm Emanuel: Athletes Kneeling During National Anthem Akin to Kneeling at ‘Religious Services’ Rahm Emanuel: Athletes Kneeling During National Anthem Akin to Kneeling at ‘Religious Services’ - Non Perele - News Online



2. And lots of those who have succumbed practice ‘convert psychology, they ridicule traditional religion while bowing their head to their new religion, Militant Secularism. One denomination of MS religion is the cult of Darwinism. As much as it is trumpeted by Secularists, there is no proof of same, but, as they respond to that complaint….neither is there for God. Touché.

Faith is the mode for both traditional religion, and for Darwinism.

"Darwinism, by contrast, is an essential ingredient in secularism, that aggressive, quasi-religious faith without a deity. The Sternberg case seems, in many ways, an instance of one religion persecuting a rival, demanding loyalty from anyone who enters one of its churches -- like the National Museum of Natural History.”

3. “The secularists [that The New York Times, Katherine] Stewart represents just refuse to acknowledge that their religious beliefs are in fact religious beliefs, and of a far creepier and deadlier kind than Christians’.
….the belief that it is possible to fix the world by applying government pressure? That is not a belief that can be wholly validated by research or experience. In fact, research and experience both indicate that central planning usually makes life even more nasty, brutish, and short.

So what is this unfounded, undocumented, unprovable faith in government power to correct human psyches and behavior if not a religious (metaphysical) belief? It is also an unprovable and metaphysical belief about what a human is — a thing that can be “corrected” by politics and whose “error” is not intrinsic to itself. Again, these are all metaphysical, religious beliefs with no empirical basis or possibility of being fully empirically proven.

The secular, pagan, atheist types are the ones who claim religious assumptions are evil. They do so because they erroneously believe they are free from such assumptions. But in truth, no one is.””

Call them atheists, or Militant Secularists..... they teach their religion in government school, don’t they.

The real test is how they respond when confronted by factual information that contradicts the Faith.

How do Leftists respond to the data that disproves "Cops are killing our KIDS!"?

...when they are confronted by data that shows that white people who emulate typical Black behaviors (bastardy, petty criminality, substance abuse, etc.) are just as wretched as Black people?

...when it is shown that Blacks who inter elite schools fail at many times the rate of whites who are actually credentialed?

They deny it or change the subject. Just like a religious fanatic.

The Militant Secularists????


They simply ignore any such facts.


"But this supposed intransigence on the part of the Religious Right is far less detrimental to the health of the body politic than the Left’s love affair with Marxism, Socialism, Racialism, the Command Economy, all of which have been proven via one hundred years of evidence shows only shortages, despotism and murder."

The marxists have always been hostile to Christians because communists want the people to worship the state as their god

Yup.

Did you know that no one was happier about Darwin's theory than Karl Marx?


One of the first readers of 'On the Origin of Species' was Friedrich Engels, then living in Manchester. He wrote to Karl Marx: "Darwin, by the way, whom I’m reading just now, is absolutely splendid. There was one aspect of teleology that had yet to be demolished, and that has now been done. Never before has so grandiose an attempt been made to demonstrate historical evolution in Nature, and certainly never to such good effect."
Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, "Marx-Engels Collected Works" , vol. 40, p. 441.

We never kneel at our religious services.

What does that have to do with statists bending the knee and the neck to big government?
It's a bad metaphor if people don't kneel at religious services.

Kneeling, bending of the knee and neck, in religious services is a fact in every religion except Judaism.

Wise up.

I’m a Democrat. And a Christian. I went to church weekly before the Trump-virus was mishandled. The Democrats never impacted my ability to worship or think the way I want. I don’t agree with atheists on religious debates but honestly I totally get not having faith. We all lose and gain it over our lives.

Instead of spending your time in a bunker of fear on culture issues I’d suggest you spend your effort encouraging rational administration of the governments day to day responsibilities. This administration is failing at that.

Mike Brown
Laquan McDonald
Tamir Rice
Sandra Bland

That's how we respond.

Uh, guy, we are all increasingly wretched because the Plutocrats have spent the last 40 years demolishing the working class.

...when it is shown that Blacks who inter elite schools fail at many times the rate of whites who are actually credentialed?
Um, "inter", what are you trying to say here.

The actual number of black kids who graduate college is 42%, compared to 62% of white kids. Given a chance, black kids do well, given the racial headwinds they face in this country.

Well, that and Xianity's 2000 year history of murder, torture, suppression of women, denial of science...

David Mamet.
“We want to stand upon our own feet and look fair and square at the world — its good facts, its bad facts, its beauties, and its ugliness; see the world as it is and be not afraid of it. Conquer the world by intelligence and not merely by being slavishly subdued by the terror that comes from it. The whole conception of God is a conception derived from the ancient Oriental despotisms.

It is a conception quite unworthy of free men. When you hear people in church debasing themselves and saying that they are miserable sinners, and all the rest of it, it seems contemptible and not worthy of self-respecting human beings. We ought to stand up and look the world frankly in the face. We ought to make the best we can of the world, and if it is not so good as we wish, after all it will still be better than what these others have made of it in all these ages.

A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men. It needs a fearless outlook and a free intelligence. It needs hope for the future, not looking back all the time toward a past that is dead, which we trust will be far surpassed by the future that our intelligence can create.'' - Bertrand Russell, ''Why I Am Not a Christian''

Trump has done a masterful job of responding to the chinese disease

when the left was going completely insane with fears of people dying at the doorsteps of hospitals waiting for a respirator the trump administration was massively increasing hospital beds by sending US Navy hospital ships and building temporary hospitals where needed

not only that but greatly increasing the production of medical equipment

150,000 dead Americans say otherwise.

Uh, it was two ships, and they were ill-suited to the task. Most of the temporary hospitals were built by state officials.

Sorry, man the fact we are still losign 1000 people a day when most of the rest of the world has this thing under control, when Europe has to have a travel ban from the US< Trump has not done a "masterful" job.

Trump declared a national health emergency in 11 days.....

Obama....six months.

Obama.....took him 6 months and 1,000 dead Americans to act.

"Obama declares H1N1 emergency
October 26,
2009 8:47 a.m. EDT
Washington (CNN) -- President Obama has declared a national emergency to deal with the "rapid increase in illness" from the H1N1 influenza virus."
Obama declares H1N1 emergency - CNN.com

It isn't until paragraph 10 that this is noted:

"Since the H1N1 flu pandemic began in April, millions of people in the United States have been infected, at least 20,000 have been hospitalized and more than 1,000 have died, said Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention."

What a difference between this competent, America-loving executive and Obama.


Where's the gratitude, Democrats???
