Since the Sexual Liberation movement of the '60s, America has been experiencing an explosion of neo-Gnostic pagan movements in concert with a relentless assault on unchanging truth, reality, first principles, universal moral law, and the created order of being---the two sexes (male and female) for example. These movements interface with mystical, quasi-Buddhist, occult Gnostic, and other ‘blood and soil’ notions: New Age cults, Satanism, transcendental meditation, Wicca, goddess worship, ‘gay’ shamanism, reincarnation, Luciferian Theosophy, the Great Apes Project and all other animal rights agendas, Gaia worship, deep ecology, channeling and other such notions. All are types of pantheism, which stress in one way or another that mankind is ‘one with’ nature ( the evolving universe of psychic energy and matter) and should therefore make obeisance to it as Sovereign.
In his penetrating analysis of the Gnostic Progressive Left, M. Stanton Evans author of "The Theme is Freedom: Religion, Politics, and the American Tradition," observes that it is only against the background of neo-paganism that the bizarre ‘isms’ of Leftist politics come into focus. The common feature of all these movements---naturalism, materialism, sexism, multiculturalism, feminism, determinism, economic determinism, racism, heteronormativism, and patriarchalism for instance, is that they view irrational nature itself as ultimate and sovereign. In other words, they make a god of irrational nature, which is precisely why Al Gore is synonymous with Gaia, global warming, and carbon footprints, and the Left in general is so very ‘green.’ Evans comments:
“Much of it, indeed, is pantheism or other nature-worship, dressed up as secularism or science.” Darwinian evolution is the “most influential case in point (as it) explicitly replaces (or identifies) God with physical nature, and in some versions even attributes to nature, or some agency within it, ineffable designs.” (The Theme is Freedom, p. 122)
For almost one-hundred years, the Gnostic Left has been busily engaged in stealthily undermining and gutting our founding documents and America’s religious, social, political, legal, and cultural infrastructures. Toward this end, they’ve managed to infiltrate alien meaning into the Word of God, seminaries and pulpits and marginalize and deconstruct the Declaration of Independence—the charter document—and to cleverly infiltrate new and alien meaning into our Constitution. Whereas originally, the individual’s right to liberty was viewed as God-given---thus fixed and unchanging---the Holy Trinity has been declared dead and subsequently replaced by a divine energy identified as 'natural selection,' and a mystical god-State, while group privileges are increasingly sweeping away individual rights. And where each and every human life possesses an ‘inalienable right to life’ was held as an immutable truth and a universal moral good, the ‘scientifically enlightened’ politically correct view holds that truth and morality are irrelevant and human life without value, dignity, or purpose. Taking the place of our inalienable right to life is politically correct choice. In reality, choice is an elitist eugenics mentality in disguise, hence it views procreation of undesirables---such as Conservative Christians---as bad, therefore all population control schemes such as euthanasia, abortion, and the abomination called partial birth abortion---which is tantamount to infanticide---are ‘good.’
However, despite these and the Gnostic Left’s many other successful changes toward the transvaluation or total inversion of America’s traditional cultural, social, political, and legal order, our Second Amendment rights remain a primary concern to the totalitarian ambitions of Leftists. They want our guns because a weaponless people are a helpless people.
Various Leftists and their ilk predicted long ago that they and an interconnected network of accomplices throughout academia, the entertainment world, government, the church and elsewhere, would bring about the fall of the West by way of a ‘long walk through the culture.’ A diabolically conceived ‘walk’ that would incrementally condition our minds, demoralize us, and slowly invert our traditional order by disarming, dumbing-down, and putting Westerners ‘to sleep’ (enslaving them) through immorality: ‘’sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll.” The unwary sleepers, it was confidently foretold, would never dream that they would one day awaken to the nightmare world of slavery unfolding all around us.
Over the course of many years those predictions have come true. For today, millions of Americans are an immoral, narcissistic people addicted to instant gratification. They are an infantilized people whose ongoing mind-conditioning comes by way of warped, pornographic, propaganda-spewing media and entertainment. And while Americans have been sleeping, our universities and schools have become transmission belts for the proselytizing of Darwinism, socialism, political correctness, open-borders, New Age pantheism, sexual confusion and androgyny, one world universalism, and hate: hate-whitey, hate-Conservatives, hate-America, hate truth, hate history, hate free markets, hate straight males, hate-tradition, hate-morality, and hate the Biblical God.
As truth, common sense, morality, and knowledge of our founding Christian-based worldview die, the American mind shuts down in tandem, thereby allowing the icecap of a new ‘green’ totalitarianism to relentlessly advance across our nation, snuffing out the light of Christ, liberty and all things good. Under its oppressive weight, America is crushed downward into a dark abyss of godless pagan superstition, where at the urging of the Left’s demonic mendacity, 2+2 becomes 5, males are females, females are males, being bad is cool, but doing evil is much more gratifying.
Our founders long ago warned Americans that only a God-fearing, informed, and virtuous people can remain a free people, for these practices lend themselves to impulse control issuing in self-determination and the cultivation of higher reason and logic, hence to individual liberty and our form of self-government. In the words of Patrick Henry---Christian patriot, governor of Virginia, revolutionary general, “The Voice of Liberty,’ and signer of the U.S. Constitution:
“The great pillars of all government and of social life (are) virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone, that renders us invincible.”
Ignorance, narcissism, and lack of self-control on the other hand, leads to lack of impulse-control (determinism) and the downward spiraling consequences of dependency, lying, cheating, crime, chaos, anarchy, and eventually slavery. Tragically, and of great consequence to the continuance of individual liberty, all too many Americans today are apathetic, drug-using, infantilized, violence-prone, obscenity-spewing, sex-obsessed people, and the name Jesus Christ is for many of these---and particularly for the Left’s ‘self-anointed’---- the obscenity of choice. In 1909, Reverend Francis Grimke warned of the perils of moral corruption. He said:
“If the time ever comes when we shall go to pieces, it will…be…from inward corruption----from the disregard of right principles…” (Equality of Right for all Citizens, Black and White Alike)
As we watch and wait in trepidation, wondering if our fellow Americans will be so foolish as to elect yet another seductive, charismatic Messiah similar to Obama—the most destructive Leftist ever—-we need to realize that our greatest enemy is often ourselves. For when we allow ourselves to fall down the slippery slope of moral corruption, ignorance, dependency, and apathy we fall right into slavery, both spiritual and physical. Our own freely chosen follies and conceits---in concert with a willingness to transgress---will be the downfall of our individual liberties, self-government, and a free America.
