Interesting – how is it that the progressives immediately yelped like hot pigs in cold mud when President Trump made comments after the NYC terrorist attack? Now again, they roll over and over in the mud with moral outrage for ‘gun control’ after one of their minions actually acts out their deepest psyche desires.
The primary question has to be to what morality one determines the source for outrage? What has been the root of the main street media attention over the last fifty years in particular comes from the new predominant national religion: humanism. Yes, I say the true violation of the 1st Amendment is the institutionalization of humanism in government, media, the arts, and in denominations that were once built on solid Biblical truth. I’m not going into the description and ruse of humanism other than the reality that it takes the living God of Creation to whom our ‘primary Founders’ always assented to and replace a high moral standard with whatever your mind can contrive. Most often the definition of a standard is relinquished to some intelligentsia to determine and then inform all those who seek a moral grounding as to what that moral standard is.
So far in the course of history it is proven that when humans depend on humans to set the moral standard the lowest denominator of that dependency results in what has taken our nation over in individuals, media, arts/entertainment and governance. This is so far away from what the Founders intended or even said about governing in a Constitutional Republic. The absolute fact and reality is that if one cannot self-govern by the moral standards of the God of the Bible then – “The Home Depot© truck” control or gun control means nothing but despotism and tyranny. History proves this point over and over. Those that think themselves smarter and morally self-righteous become the despotic tyrants over others. That is why the US was founded – to extricate ourselves from these self-styled gods of social moral determination. Our nation came together in commonality of language, customs and most importantly belief in the Biblical Foundations manifested in the ‘First Great Awakening’.
I chuckle and often laugh at those who are predominant, or should I say ‘prima donnas’ in entertainment, media and the demoncrat party, who call for moral outrage, gun control as well as every unnatural act of humankind under the sun. I call them Un-American because they are completely against everything which was morally established at the settling of the Colonies to the adoption of the Constitution of 1787. As with the murderer in Sutherland Springs, Texas – when one is a thinker of like mind in regards to the Living God, then ones morality does not look at the evil exercised but at the means by which the evil moves from the hearts and minds of the person consummated in action.
As with the truck in NYC, the guns in crime are the inanimate objects used by those who’s morality is not surrendered to the Biblical Deity that was Foundational in America. Those who continue to assault Judeo-Christian truth are in all sense of the words of the same ilk as the Sutherland Springs shooter – moral degenerates or simply sinners in need of Gods Grace.
Shocking as it is, we in America, especially those ‘liberal’ minded preachers and denominations, don’t call sin what it is – sin. The author of morality and his given guidelines to humankind can only determine the measure of moral outrage. Those who are self-styled moral determinates are saying they are god. Hmmm, not sure I want those Hollywood Harvey’s and industry elites, let alone media elites having lordship over me. Yet that is what they appear to want and definitely do.
Bottom line is that only God is God!
Now in relationship to governance I hope the ‘demoncrats in Congress’ and the entire progressive/socialist/globalist ilk will learn our Foundational History. I know, that is a snowballs chance in a blast furnace but one has to have a starting position if one expects to see a society return to good governance which, yes, begins with the individual!
By the way, the pigs in the mud that cry about moral outrage and that you cannot legislate morality have been legislating morality every time they want legislation or court rulings for their mud. I have to apologize to pigs. I used to raise them and I know that they are very clean animals and the mud is something they use to regulate their body temperatures in the heat. But remember that pigs are omnivores – eating any form of slop fed to them and under certain circumstances will even eat their young
Just a few closing thoughts from several of our Foundational Fathers:
Samuel Adams “Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt. He therefore is the truest friend of the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue.”
Thomas Jefferson wrote, “No government can continue good but under the control of the people; and … their minds are to be informed by education what is right and what wrong; to be encouraged in habits of virtue and to be deterred from those of vice … These are the inculcations necessary to render the people a sure basis for the structure and order of government.”
John Adams stated: “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other
George Washington wrote: “Of all the dispositions and habits, which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”
Lastly, Samuel Adams speaking on August 1, 1776 regarding the Declaration of Independence and the nature of Americans:
“A politic minister will study to lull us into security by granting us the full extent of our petitions. The warm sunshine of influence would melt down the virtue which the violence of the storm rendered more firm and unyielding. In a state of tranquility, wealth and luxury, our descendants would forget the arts of war and the noble activity and zeal which made their ancestors invincible. Every art of corruption would be employed to loosen the bond of union which renders our resistance formidable. When the spirit of liberty which now animates our hearts and gives success to our arms is extinct, our numbers will accelerate our ruin, and render us easier victims to tyranny. Ye abandoned minions of an infatuated ministry, if peradventure any should yet remain among us—remember that a Warren and a Montgomery are numbered among the dead! Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen and then say, what should be the reward of such sacrifices? Bid not our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship, and plough and sow and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood, and hunt us from the face of the earth! If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
