Writing in, "New York Abortion Bill Allows Shooting Babies Through the Heart With Poison to Kill Them" Steven Ertelt reports that New York is already the abortion/murder capital of the United States, with practically no oversight of the industry. Throughout the second trimester, developing babies can be completely dismembered,
"... even when they can feel pain (by) pulling the baby out piece by piece until the mother’s uterus is empty. After the abortion, the abortionist must reassemble the child’s body to ensure nothing has been left inside the child’s mother." (LifeNews.com | 5/20/14 6:28 PM)
What is being demanded now for late-term abortions and will be legalized in New York by the abortion-expanding Women’s Equality Act, is the death of babies,
"... by sliding a needle filled with a chemical agent, such as digoxin, into the beating heart, before being delivered."
Dismembering babies and disposing of them like so much garbage is common practice in our wicked society where children are routinely initiated into the realms of darkness and unwanted human life is an imposition upon growing legions of the morally bad who now say dismemberment does not go far enough. What they now want is for fully developed baby's to be lethally injected through their hearts.
While evil cuts through the hearts of every man and woman, bar none, the real source of this evil is an evil-loving left-right confederacy of genetically superior because highly evolved neo-Gnostic 'elitists,' described by Professor Angelo Codevilla as America’s Ruling Class.
In “The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It,” Codevilla, emeritus professor of international relations at Boston University, argues that America’s real divide is between morally decent Americans who still worship the supernatural Triune God and a class of anti-supernatural evolutionary pagans and their theological counterparts who dominate both political parties, academe, Hollywood, science, media and certain seminaries. They preach from pulpits, run big business, our economy and the country's major institutions and imagine themselves entitled to reshape an America that they regard as composed of un-evolved subhuman hominids.
The Ruling Class believe that science and evolution trump the Revelation of God, and as they are the evolved products of the 'god' Evolution they are science’s authoritative enlightened priests and god-men who pray to themselves,
"... as saviors of the planet and as shapers of mankind in their own image.." (The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do About It, p. xix)
Like their evil Communist counterpart Big Brother, the Ruling Class are magic thinkers who believe reality is inside their minds. Respected Conservative Christian writer Frederick J. Hutchinson connects magical thinking with narcissism. These two spiritual pathologies go together like a dung-beetle on its’ pile.
Hutchinson characterizes magical thinking with the ridiculous proverb that if a tree falls in a forest and no one hears it, it makes no noise, meaning that if a narcissist did not see or hear the tree fall then it did not fall since whatever the narcissist thinks, covets, envies, hates, or lusts after is the absolute meaning of reality at any given moment. By extension of this insanity, if a narcissist hates God the Father and claims that He never revealed Himself to man, then He never spoke and does not exist. If the magic thinker worships science and evolution then so must we all. If he hates babies they deserve to die and if he resents the innocence of children then their innocence must be drowned in a sewer of depravity. Likewise, if he cannot see, hear, taste, touch, or detect his own soul in any way then souls do not exist. (Restoring History, Hutchinson, pp. 80-81)
Ruling Class magic thinkers are characterized by an inflexible will turned toward evil fueled and validated by a depraved conscience, the most destructive force in any society. It is only within this context that we can understand why our once family centered, morally decent Christian-grounded culture of life and moral order increasingly resembles a cross between Sodom and decadent Rome in its death throes.
Our Americanized Sodom-Rome is animated by an evil spirit of negation and rebellion manifest in will to power, self-gratification as highest virtue together with unabashed envy as cause celebre. This wickedness manifests in 'politically correct' licenses to oppress, subvert, pervert, terrorize and destroy all who are the objects of envy as well as allowing for luxurious parasitic lifestyles, sexual anarchy, legalized plundering (thieving), subverting and perverting our children and many other manifest evils not the least of which is the subterranean river of blood from 60,000,000 unwanted developing human lives running through and soaking our land and crying out to our Heavenly Father. The blood and perversion of the innocents condemns the merciless tyranny of evil that has over-taken America.
How did it happen that precious human life has become so cheap, worthless and hated that ridding ourselves of unwanted humans is as simple as a visit to a local charnel house/abortion clinic? How did the sick, twisted Ruling Class attitude replace the Founding generation’s belief that “all men are created equal” because they are the spiritual image bearers of the living, personal Holy Triune God?
Codevilla writes that by the 1820s,
“… J. C. Calhoun was reading in the best London journals that different breeds of animals and plants produce inferior or superior results, slave owners were citing the Negroes’ deficiencies to argue that they should remain slaves indefinitely. Lots of others were reading Ludwig Feuerbach’s rendition of Hegelian philosophy, according to which biblical injunctions reflect the fantasies of alienated human beings or, in the young Karl Marx’s formulation, that ethical thought is “superstructural” to material reality. By 1853, when Sen. John Pettit of Ohio called “all men are created equal” “a self-evident lie,” much of America’s educated class had already absorbed the “scientific” notion (which Darwin only popularized) that man is the product of chance mutation and natural selection of the fittest. Accordingly, by nature, superior men subdue inferior ones as they subdue lower beings or try to improve them as they please….As the 19th century ended, the educated class’s religious fervor turned to social reform: they were sure that because man is a mere part of evolutionary nature, man could be improved, and that they, the most highly evolved of all, were the improvers.” (ibid)
As their numbers grew and their narcissism inflated,
“… so did their distaste for common Americans. Believing itself “scientific,” this Progressive class sought to explain its differences from its neighbors in “scientific” terms. The most elaborate of these attempts was Theodor Adorno’s widely acclaimed The Authoritarian Personality (1948). It invented a set of criteria by which to define personality traits, ranked these traits and their intensity in any given person on what it called the “F scale” (F for fascist), interviewed hundreds of Americans, and concluded that most who were not liberal Democrats were latent fascists. This way of thinking about non-Progressives filtered down to college curricula. In 1963-64 for example, I was assigned Herbert McCloskey’s Conservatism and Personality (1958) at Rutgers’s Eagleton Institute of Politics as a paradigm of methodological correctness. The author had defined conservatism in terms of answers to certain questions, had defined a number of personality disorders in terms of other questions, and run a survey that proved “scientifically” that conservatives were maladjusted ne’er-do-well ignoramuses. “(ibid)
Where the majority of prior generations humbly repented of their sins, under the evil influence of the Ruling Class, today the word 'sin' has all but disappeared from churches, hence throughout our land so that cosmically inflated egos and wills turned toward evil have all but replaced humility.
In his Commentary on Psalm 33/2, 8, St. Augustine notes that a dirty house (depraved conscience) is the miserable condition of all whose pride and inflexible will makes them refuse to face their own conscience lest they be overwhelmed by the wickedness they find there. (Day by Day with Saint Augustine, Donald X. Burt, p. 107)
The self-glorifying Ruling Class are self-righteous hypocrites, narcissists who refuse to tolerate the knowledge of their own weaknesses, failings, and sinfulness, thus are constantly engaged in sweeping the evidence of their consistent evils under the rug of their own consciousness in order to preserve their carefully constructed public facades. Thus they unceasingly engage in the effort to dress up their inner filth and depravity in an outward appearance of moral purity and superiority. Because of this they hate the light–---the light of truth and goodness that not only exposes them but penetrates their deceptions. This is why evil has become good and good evil.
Some examples of the satanically inverted 'truth' and 'morality' of the Ruling Class is the murder of babies as woman's equality, the initiation of children into perversity as 'gay' equality, the attempted theft of Bundy's ranch as a 'crime' against the (broken) law of our land and the nonsensical narrative that the universe and everything within it evolved over billions of years, including humans who supposedly evolved first from stardust, chemicals or according to evolutionary theologians, blobs of matter, followed by creeping things, crawling things, swimming things and then knuckle-dragging things, all of which we are authoritatively told to believe is observational science:
"Without strong public resistance, impressionable young children across much of America will soon be taught, among other discredited dogma, that human emissions of carbon dioxide “pollution” are responsible for “global warming.” Also high on the agenda is convincing young children that the atheistic evolution theory — is not only based on “science,” but is the only explanation for life. What opponents call the “brainwashing” will begin as early as kindergarten — at least if the Obama administration and its establishment allies get their way." (National "Science" Standards Preach Climate Hysteria, Evolution, Alex Newman, The New American, Monday, 19 May 2014)
While Ruling Class hypocrites refuse to see their own persistent wickedness they clearly see and constantly harp upon and gossip, whine and complain about the 'politically incorrect' weaknesses and failings of other people, especially those whom they deeply resent and envy, such as stalwart defenders of the Word of God with focus upon Special Creation, the Christian faction of the Tea Party and all people possessed of the courage of conviction to speak truth to lies. This is why the calculating dark spirit animating a plague of vicious gossip, eviscerating slander, back-stabbing, scoffing, ridicule, destructive criticism, treachery and betrayal is the murderous spirit of Ruling Class depravity and green-eyed envy shamelessly posing as unbiased news reporting, commentary, entertainment, music, art, politics, Common Core education, sustainable growth, evolution as science, and concerns for the welfare of desert turtles, children, 'gays,' illegals and Muslims.
Since the Ruling Class refuse to acknowledge their own wickedness, they not only hurl vicious, flaming arrows of filth at despised and envied "other" but transfer onto "other" their own personal sins and failures. In this way, the wicked crucify the human objects of their envy by making them carry an unbearably heavy cross of false guilt---guilt that rightfully belongs to the wicked. As with all unwanted human life, scapegoats such as faithful Christians and Tea Partiers are sacrificed on the fiery altar of “preservation of self-image” by envy-bitten idolaters.
A wicked will causes evil and suffering
Ultimately, a depraved conscience is the result of a strong will determined to have its’ own way, thus St. Augustine points to a wicked will as the cause of all evil and suffering. This is because its unholy companions are self-gratification (Matthew 4:2-5), self-glorification (Matthew 4: 6-8) and lust for power and prestige (Matthew 4: 9-11). Thus the wicked will seeks to impose itself upon despised and envied "others" by overt or covert coercion in order to destroy their spiritual virtues and physical property. This evil is also the result of envy, the most cold-blooded, sadistically evil sin of all, the one that transformed Lucifer into the devil and transforms the Ruling Class into his demonic image-bearers and human tools.
America's Slide into Evil
During his commencement address at Harvard more than thirty years ago, former atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn offended the narcissistically inflated sensibilities of America’s up-and-coming “ruling class” aspirants when he warned that America was tilting towards evil because its’ ruling class and intelligentsia have rejected God and embraced instead atheist evolutionary scientistic-socialism, the politics of destruction. Solzhenitsyn clearly discerned that the godless faith of the ruling class and its apostate clergy had already produced a spiritual, moral, and intellectual sickness responsible for replacing traditional freedom for the good, true and right with destructive freedom that makes society defenseless against human decadence and criminality. America, said Solzhenitsyn, is traveling the highway to hell taken previously by the Russians.
What gave his message its unassailable integrity, courage and force is that he spoke from the hellish crucible of the Soviet death camps. His message was:
”Look what happened when a godless regime takes over. Let our experience teach you not to continue on your current path of trying to live without God.” (Alexander Solzhenitsyn: A Prophet to the World, Aug. 2008, heedingthetimes.net)
What We are Losing
At its' inception, our Constitution was ingeniously crafted, not for depersonalized conscious products of evolution, but for people created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons. In Christian thought, a person is a spirit and personality is the total individuality of the spirit. Without spirit there is no person.
The term 'person' originated in Christian theologies developmental struggle to comprehend the nature and experience of the supernatural Triune God:
"The derivative concept of human personhood is a gift of the Christian faith to culture…” (Stephen P. Stratton, Chapter 14, p. 247, The Self, Paul Vitz & Susan M. Felch, Editors)
Building off of this historically unique concept, St. Augustine (AD 354-430) affirmed that as all men are the spiritual image-bearers of the supernatural One God in three Persons then it logically follows that each person is a trinity of being — of soul/spirit and body.
Based on this radical definition of man Church Father Tertullian condemns child sacrifice, saying that no matter how it is rationalized, it is still murder:
"....murder is once for all forbidden; so even the child in the womb, while yet the mother's blood is still being drawn on to form the human being, it is not lawful to destroy. To forbid birth is only quicker murder. It makes no difference whether one take away the life once born or destroy it as it comes to birth. He is a man, who is to be a man, the fruit is always present in the seed." (Tertullian, Apologeticus IX.- 6, 8)
Destroying the unborn is murder because right from inception the developing life is a person created in the divine spiritual image of the One God in three Persons.
Whether the Founders were individually Christian or not, there was among them a strong Christian consensus that as all men are persons created as spiritual equals in the eyes of God, then life, property, worth, dignity and other unalienable rights are conferred upon each person at conception. For example, freedom of religion and speech are the temporal manifestations of a person’s God-given spiritual property of conscience and reason while a person is uniquely free because his spirit can spiritually transcend the physical matter of his own body to access the supernatural dimension as Paul affirms:
"Now the Lord is Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." (2 Cor. 3:17)
Therefore, as all men are created spiritual equals in the eyes of the Triune God, then life, property, worth, dignity and other unalienable rights are conferred upon each human person by His Creator at conception.
In "Property," published in The National Gazette on March 29, 1792, James Madison clearly defines the meaning of a person’s God-given spiritual property, some of its’ temporal manifestations and the meaning and intent of just government as opposed to unjust government:
"He has a property....in his religious opinions, and in the profession and practice dictated by them." "He has a property...in his opinions and the free communication of them." "He has an equal property in the free use of his faculties and free choice of the objects on which to employ them." "He has property very dear to him in the safety and liberty of his person." (The Heritage Foundation)
"....a man's land, or merchandize, or money (and) as a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights. Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties or his possessions."
Government is instituted to protect property of every sort:
"This being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures to every man, whatever is his own." (Samuel Rutherford, Lex Rex; lexrex.com)
Vishal Mangalwadi, India's foremost Christian scholar affirms that the Christian gift of personhood gave birth to the "belief in the unique dignity of human beings," and this is,
"...the force that created Western civilization, where citizens do not exist for the state but the state exists for the individuals. Even kings, presidents, prime ministers, and army generals cannot be allowed to trample upon an individual and his or her rights." (Truth and Transformation: A Manifesto for Ailing Nations, pp. 12-13)
The Constitution therefore, recognizes the divine nature of man's creation, that man is a person endowed by his personal Creator with spiritual property, a divine right to life and liberty, and the means of acquiring and possessing property. Hence our Republic recognizes Law is unchangeable because the Creator (John 1:1) is the unchanging Lawgiver Who is the same today as yesterday and for all eternity:
"It is sufficiently obvious, that persons and property are the two great subjects on which Governments are to act; and that the rights of persons, and the rights of property, are the objects, for the protection of which Government was instituted. These rights cannot well be separated." (James Madison, Speech at the Virginia Convention, December 2, 1829)
With the rejection of our wholly-other Creator and six day Special Creation in favor of occult pagan evolutionary narratives and either no God, or sock-puppet deities that 'create' evolutively as evolutionary theism and its counterpart progressive creationism teach, or pantheist conceptions such as the Force, Quantum Void, Brahman, and Omega, Americans have logically rejected His precious gift of personhood and everything good built upon this unique conception.. This happens because evolutionary narratives, whether atheist or theological, are forms of naturalism which cannot by any means account for life, let alone conscious life. Therefore, by the inner logic of evolutionary narratives, Americans have made themselves into the walking dead; broken cisterns that hold no living waters. (Jeremiah 2:13)
In the eyes of the Ruling Class "we the people" are no longer persons created in His spiritual image but rather conscious products of evolution, which makes us less than nothing. It follows then that our unalienable rights and the unchanging Law on which the Constitution is grounded are as devoid of meaning and worth as we are. Since this is the case then why not destroy unwanted human life? Why not spill its' blood in sacrificial rites as Satanist cults already do right here in America? Why not rape our children's minds and souls as wicked 'sex' educators do, forcibly steal our personal property, destroy our economy and kill unwanted human life as quickly and efficiently as possible?
Spiritual evil is destroying our dechristianized nation and rapidly transforming it into a barbaric pagan society where depersonalized beings do whatever appears to work in pursuit of self-gratification. Where pagans burned babies, children, animals and even adults to death on the altars of Moloch and Cronus, depersonalized Americans slaughter them in butcher shops run by merciless monsters like Kermit Gosnell, the executioner who sadistically murdered the unwanted and illegitimately conceived babies of self-gratifying Americans.
In 1921 the largest cemetery of sacrificed infants in the ancient Near East was discovered at Carthage. Hundreds of burial urns filled with the cremated bones of infants, mostly newborns but even some children up to six years of age were uncovered at Carthage. All of the victims had been burned to death on the altars of self-serving idolatrous men and women.
The actual rite of child sacrifice at Carthage has been graphically described by Diodorus Siculus:
"There was in their city a bronze image of Cronus extending its hands, palms up and sloping toward the ground, so that each of the children when placed thereon rolled down and fell into a sort of gaping pit filled with fire." (Abortion and the Ancient Practice of Child Sacrifice, Andrew White, MD, 1/5/2012, Associates for Biblical Research)
Plutarch, a first and second century A.D. Greek author, adds to the description:
"...the whole area before the statue was filled with a loud noise of flutes and drums so that the cries of wailing should not reach the ears of the people." (ibid)
Idolatry Gives Birth to Death
"....after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. James 1:15
The beginning of idolatry is desire for self-glorification which together with self-gratification and lust for power and prestige demonstrates preference for one's self instead of God and neighbor (and unwanted human life). Just as no violation of the Law of God can occur without one first being an idolater, envy/covetousness and murder are its' final results, for where self-glorification and self-gratification are primary then our Lord, the source of life, Truth, and Law as well as our brethren count for nothing because cosmically inflated Ruling Class 'self' deserves everything it can get, no matter the cost to other people.
Pride, envy/covetousness drove Cain to murder Abel; Judas to betray Jesus Christ God incarnate, the source of life, soul/spirit, Truth and Law and Nimrod, Karl Marx, Nietzsche, Teilhard De Chardin and the Ruling Class to 'murder' the Christian God, hence the personhood of His image bearers.
“And this is the judgment: because the light has come into the world and men loved darkness rather than the light: for their works were evil.” John 3: 19
Every step of the systematic downfall of America has been led by arrogant, defiant, God-hating narcissists who have deliberately fostered self-gratification, the breakdown of the family, the murder of the unborn, subversion and perversion of our children, hatred, sexual anarchy, and an entitlement mentality among Americans so that today narcissism and magical thinking are at epidemic proportions at every level of society.
Dr. Carl Raschke is an internationally known writer and academic scholar who for the past decade has been researching and explaining the effects of America’s apostasy from God and its’ corollary, narcissism and magical thinking, which Raschke combines into what he calls a Satanist Mindset. This mindset is a mystification of the most corrupt passions and inverted values of magical thinkers. It is the spiritual Frankenstein,
“…created by a social order that has attempted to sustain itself without God.” (Satanism and Witchcraft: The Occult and the West, Dr. John Ankerberg and Dr. John Weldon)
A Satanic Mindset has gained a virtual chokehold on the levers of power and influence from the White House to Hollywood, academia, certain corporations, the media, the Supreme Court, Congress, and apostatizing seminaries and pulpits.
Our Only Hope
Solzhenitsyn holds out hope, the only hope, to a weary, spiritually disconsolate people. In his 1983 Templeton Prize address, “Men Have Forgotten God,” he stated,
“All attempts to find a way out of the plight of today’s world are fruitless unless we redirect our consciousness, in repentance, to the Creator of all; without this, no exit will be illumined, and we shall seek it in vain.”
"Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy." (Mt 5:7)
In this light we can see why early Church Fathers admonished their congregations to search themselves for envy and its root cause, idolatrous self-centeredness, and repent for,
"Look, I am coming soon! Says the Lord. My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. " "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star." (Rev. 22:12-16)
As the unrepentant God-haters had no mercy for unborn human life, so there will be no mercy for them. Toward all who reject the truth and follow evil there will be wrath. He shall say to all merciless idolaters that shall be on his left hand:
"Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels." Matthew 25:41
