Replacing the very center of what made Western Civilization, civilization per se, and, in another connection, everything, God, has been the enduring aim of what is referred to as 'the Left.'
We can single them out for study as
the French Revolution,
the extension of that revolution, ie, the Russian and Maoist versions,
and the political version, the Democrat Party.


  1. By June 1793, the radical Jacobins had total control of the Convention, and began instituting left-wing government policies, such as price controls. Robespierre dominated the tyrannical “Committee of Public Safety” and began the “Reign of Terror,” purging all “enemies of the revolution.” They demanded death for traitors, spies, moderates, anyone who disagreed with Robespierre. His ally, Saint-Just, called for “unlimited war,” saying the Republic “owes the good citizens its protection. To the bad ones it owes only death.”
  2. The guillotine was set up next to the statue of Liberty in the “Place de la Revolution.” Fifty or so a day were dragged up the stairs.
  3. With the Jacobins in control, the “de-Christianization” campaign kicked into high gear. Inspired by Rousseau’s idea of the religion civile, the revolution sought to completely destroy Christianity and replace it with a religion of the state. To honor “reason” and fulfill the promise of the Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen that “no one may be questioned about his opinions, including his religious views,” Catholic priests were forced to stand before the revolutionary clubs and take oaths to France’s new humanocentric religion, the Cult of Reason (which is French for ‘People for the American Way’).
    1. Revolutionaries smashed church art and statues.


4. In Lyon, the archbishop refused to swear allegiance to the republic, and was removed, replaced by the revolutionary bishop Antoine Lamourette. But the people of Lyon responded by clinging to their guns and religion. So, the Convention ordered that Lyon, the second-largest city in France, be destroyed and a monument erected on the ashes proclaiming: “Lyon waged war against liberty; Lyon is no more.”
  1. "The Cult of Reason (French: Culte de la Raison)a was an atheistic belief system established in France and intended as a replacement for Christianity during the French Revolution."Cult of Reason - Wikipedia
  2. Joseph Fouché, head of the de-Christianization, arranged for the “bankers, scholars, aristocrats, priests, nuns, wealthy merchants, their wives, mistresses and children” to be dragged from their homes and killed by firing squads. He then wrote that Christianity in the provinces “had been struck down once and for all.”
  3. Lamourette had, originally thought that he could fuse revolutionary principles with Catholicism, much like today’s pro-life Democrats, based on a “can’t we all just get along” philosophy. Such gave rise to the idiom “the kiss of Lamourette.” [On July 7th, 1792, the Abbé Lamourette induced the different factions of the Legislative Assembly of France to lay aside their differences; so the deputies of the Royalists, Constitutionalists, Girondists, Jacobins, and Orleanists rushed into each other's arms, and the king was sent for to see “how these Christians loved one another;”but the reconciliation was hollow and unsound. The term is now used for a reconciliation of policy without abatement of rancour. Brewer's: Lamourette's Kiss]
5.In lieu of religious holidays, which were banned, the revolutionaries put on “Fetes of Reason.” The first was in November 1793, in the Notre Dame Cathedral, which had been renamed “The Temple of Reason,” with “To Philosophy” carved on the façade and the altar named the “Altar of Reason.” It was an ACLU fantasy come true!

I know how much you hate reason but this was mainly a political event. Though there were certainly people who wanted to wage war against religion (the Church had sided with the monarchy), the mob stormed the Bastille, not Notre Dame. Robespierre was so popular he ended up on the guillotine.

6. “If the French revolution was the end of monarchy and aristocratic privilege and the emergence of the common man and democratic rights, it was also the beginnings of modern totalitarian government and large-scale executions of "enemies of the People" by impersonal government entities (Robespierre's "Committee of Public Safety"). This legacy would not reach its fullest bloom until the tragic arrival of the German Nazis and Soviet and Chinese communists of the 20th century.

In fact, Rousseau has been called the precursor of the modern pseudo-democrats such as Stalin and Hitler and the "people's democracies." French Revolution - Robespierre, and the Legacy of the Reign of Terror

The views embodied in the French Revolution reappeared in the Russian Revolution, and every political endeavor that stemmed from the Bolsheviks……and most strangely….have re-appeared in the ascendancy of the Democrat Party right here in America.

Neither Stalin nor Hitler were "pseudo-democrats" (whatever that means) or any other kind of democrat. They were autocrats, pure and simple, and terrorism is what autocrats use to keep in power. You can vote an autocrat into power but you can't vote him out.

PoliticalChic has posted another relevant and timely OP that exposes the crazed leftist liberals / radical Democrat party as they march together in lockstep towards making America a 3rd world communist utopia of poverty and shared misery. ... :cool:

8. There is this eerie similarity between all three....


"Replacing God: The CCP’s Century-Long War Against Faith

Priests and nuns were forced to kneel down in front of a large bonfire, watching helplessly as the flames devoured their sacred instruments and burned their skin.

In another Chinese city, students wearing red armbands hit Catholics with sharp wooden sticks, throwing one priest into a fire pit after he collapsed in pain. They beat one nun to death after she refused to stomp on a statue of the Virgin Mary.

One Catholic priest was buried alive in Beijing after declining to give up his faith.

Unsettling as they might be, these acts of brutality documented by Hong Kong-based missionary Sergio Ticozzi were hardly out of the norm for faithful Chinese during the frenzy of the decade-long Cultural Revolution from 1966, when all forms of religious practices were declared “superstitious” and banned.

Nor was such repression unique to that particular period during the regime’s more than 70 years of ruling China."



9. "Democrats still haven’t faced their God problem
...the 2012 Democratic convention, when the hall exploded in turmoil as Democrats voted to amend their party’s platform to include the word “God.” The platform initially had dropped previous platform language that referenced God. After an outcry, convention chairman Antonio Villaraigosa returned to the stage to take a floor vote on a motion to reinsert the language.

The floor vote quite clearly failed as Villaraigosa repeated the roll call. Eventually he declared that “the ayes have it,” and loud boos exploded across the arena.

The headlines that came out of that debacle — “Democrats boo God”

Seems to me they booed the undemocratic process of just declaring a winner and ignoring the voters. Sounds a lot like Trump's Big Lie so I'd think you'd be more sympathetic.

10. It would be a mistake to view the Left as having given up worship. No, they have simply replace Western Civilization’s object of worship, God, with worship of themselves, and their collectivization, the state.

“It [Communism] is not new. It is, in fact, man's second oldest faith. Its promise was whispered in the first days of the Creation under the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil: "Ye shall be as gods." It is the great alternative faith of mankind. Like all great faiths, its force derives from a simple vision. Other ages have had great visions. They have always been different versions of the same vision: the vision of God and man's relationship to God. The Communist vision is the vision of Man without God.
It is the vision of man's mind displacing God as the creative intelligence of the world.”
Whittaker Chambers, Witness



"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


11. The only party that backed Russia, supported and paid for its existence, is the Democrat Party.

Since FDR reversed American policy and recognized the blood drenched Bolshevik nation in 1933, the Russians, Soviets, Communists, Bolsheviks, Marxists, whatever have had no greater supporters than the Democrat Party.

Obama grabbed his ankles to be more 'flexible' for Putin.

Biden made certain that the sanctions on Nord Steam 2 natural gas pipeline, Russia's income stream, was full on.

Currently, the Democrat Party stands for nearly 100% of the demands of the communist party.



Amazing.

"Student says teacher taught 'God is not real'
A Katy [Texas] seventh grader ...says her teacher asked the class to deny God exists.

... it all happened during a class assignment and now the school is apologizing.
...the teacher that came up with the assignment is distraught, and on Tuesday the principal determined the assignment wasn't something that was necessary for students.

[Jordan] Wooley originally answered the question 'there is no God' in two ways. "I said it was fact or opinion," said Wooley, adding she answered that way because "based on my religion and based on what I think and believe, I do not think it was a common place assertion."
Wooley says her seventh grade reading teacher at West Memorial Junior High School said both her answers were wrong and that she had to admit God wasn't real.
"It was really confusing to me at first because I didn't really know what to do, so the first thing I did was tell my mom," Wooley said.

Her mom Chantel couldn't believe it.
“That a kid was literally graded against her faith in [G]od in a classroom ....
"So the kids were caught in a Catch-22," said Chantel. "If they argued their faith, they were being told they were arguing against their faith and that happened in the classroom."
Student says teacher taught 'God is not real'



".... the public school indoctrinators formerly known as “teachers.“ The Obama power grab--supported by his adoring adherents--has just about reached the most monumental proportion of all time.

... Obama may have finally reached the apex of his desires; that of replacing God with himself.

Recently, at New Jersey’s B. Bernice Youngs Elementary School, not only were second grade students forced to sing a song of praise to Obama (the parents were not notified that this was occurring) but, Obama’s name was substituted for that of Jesus in the accompanying words and music.

... Could this be the reason that the atheists have fought so hard to get rid of Christianity? Is this secular messiah their planned replacement? Even more important a question to Christians and Messianic Jews is ‘does this portend biblical end times prophecy’?

.... school systems and willing adherents are pushing to corrupt and take over the very souls of our children. ... the now largely Marxist government-run US public schools system is taking advantage of our children’s lack of defenses in order to indoctrinate them into the growing Obama-Marxist secular utopia."

Public Schools’ Praise Song: Next Step Praying To Obama? - Conservative Crusader




. "Speaking in Ireland this week, President Obama stated that Catholic schools were divisive:

“If towns remain divided—if Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs, if we can’t see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to harden—that too encourages division and discourages cooperation.” On Thursday, the American Catholics for Religious Freedom fired back on President Obama’s words to 2,000 young people at the G8 Summit, stating,“President Obama’s anti-faith, secular agenda was shamefully on full display yesterday when he told the young people of Northern Ireland that Catholic education and other faith-based schools were divisive and an obstacle to peace.

All Americans of faith should be outraged by these comments which clearly telegraph the President’s belief system and are in fact at their core even anti-American.”

American Catholics for Religious Freedom points out that the [Liberal] media has completely ignored the story, and adds, “Secular progressives like President Obama ignore the truth that faith-based education is a component of the Religious Freedom guaranteed by the Constitution.

He can’t bear the thought that Catholic and parochial schools not only teach important values but consistently produce better educational results at lower cost than America’s failing public schools.


The President’s troubling values
are showing here in a way that demonstrate just how dangerous this Administration is and how committed it is to eroding the rights of all people of faith.”
Catholics Fire Back at Obama over School Comments: 'Anti-Faith, Secular Agenda Shamelessly on Full Display' - Breitbart



BTW.....this is the same Obama who stated that there is no difference between communism and capitalism.



“Girl has Bible confiscated by school officials

"A little girl had her Bible confiscated by school officials. How could this still be happening in America?" the report wondered, then explaining it's because "local school officials still don’t seem to have gotten the message."

"We recently heard from the parents of Gabrielle, a second grader in Illinois. It seems Gabrielle likes to bring her Bible to school and read it during recess. Sometimes she reads it aloud, and sometimes other kids listen in and talk with her about what she's reading," the report said. "Constitutional crisis? It shouldn't be; but little Gabrielle had her Bible taken away by a teacher and was told, 'You just can’t be doing that.'"

The school then told the little girl's parents she was not allowed to read the Bible during recess.
They objected, and the school changed its course slightly, determining she "could read it during outside recess but not during inside recess," the report said.

That was after the school confirmed there were no complaints about the bible reading.”

12. Replacing the very center of what made Western Civilization, civilization per se, and, in another connection, everything, God, has been the enduring aim of what is referred to as 'the Left.'
We can single them out for study as
the French Revolution,
the extension of that revolution, ie, the Russian and Maoist versions,


and the political version, the Democrat Party.


Where does the Democrat Party stand on religious freedom? Let me count the ways…..



Democrats made known their detestation for biblical religion, early on.
An affront to Genesis 1:26, that ALL men are created in God’s image, the Democrats cut their teeth on support of slavery of their fellow man.


Democrat Saint, Franklin Roosevelt made KKKer Hugo Black his first Supreme Court pick, and Black inserted the bogus ‘separation of church and state’ into jurisprudence. How very Marxist.


Under Democrat/Liberal LBJ, the law was passed that deprived pastors of their right of free speech.
What possible compelling government interest could this represent????




“ In August 2011, not long after [Obama] had repeatedly vowed not to use his health care law to violate religious liberty, his administration announced that it would require all employers to pay for and provide insurance coverage for everything from sterilization to Plan B, a drug whose own FDA label warns can destroy life.”

Abortion activists were livid yesterday that the Supreme Court protected the Little Sisters of the Poor from having to fund abortions. But presidential candidate.....

Florists and cake bakers must bow to the Left’s religion, Militant Secularism.




Clearly, when it comes to the Judeo-Christian faith, and in so very many other ways, the Democrat Party has earned room with the French Revolutionists, the Bolsheviks, the Communist Chinese Maoists, and numerous other totalitarian interests.

And don't forget, they love children and Planned Parenthood.
