In the article, "Modern Elijah Needed as Prophets of Ba'al Descend on Capitol," auther Bill Wilson writes, "On September 25th, the modern prophets of Ba'al will descend on the Capitol of the world's largest Christian nation. Their speakers will offer the Islamic prayer of Jummah. Described in Surah 62 of the Koran, part of the prayer says, "O ye that stand on Judaism! If ye think that ye are friends to Allah, to the exclusion of (other) men, then express your desire for Death, if ye are truthful!" "The guest speakers, who will deliver the prayer, are experts in Sharia law. Dr. Ahmad Dewidar, an Egyptian born Islamist with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, is one of two prayer leaders. On June 9, Dewidar was interviewed by Arabic TV where he said, "In 1995, I heard some sermons that said that Muslims should March on the White House from some of the mosques...One cleric said in his sermon: 'We are going to the White House, so that Islam will be victorious, Allah willing, and the White House will become into the Muslim house.'" The interviewer asked if they would occupy the White House. Dewidar replied, "No, they say that through the domination of Islam and its ideas, the White House will change.

While Wilson is correct to point out the terrible threat posed by Muslims determined to take over our nation and utterly change it, the 'other threat' needs to be exposed as well. That threat, which also calls for 'change,' is Progressivism, which sometimes calls itself Liberalism and always pushes for socialistic totalitarianism disguised as 'compassion, fairness, and equality."
In his just published book, "Living Constitution, Dying Faith: Progressivism and the New Science of Jurisprudence" author, political scientist, and legal historian Bradley C.S. Watson reveals the intellectually and morally bankrupt philosophical underpinnings of judicial activism and the alien idea of a 'living' Constitution that has undermined the Founder's ideal of a limited Constitution and Americans' faith in eternally unchanging truths.
Watson tells us that the disintegration of traditional America lies in the infiltration of Christian America by God-hating, libertine, progressivist philosophies during the late 19th century.
The Founders, notes Watson, had great faith in both Revealed and rational truths that transcended time and place. One of these truths is that man is indeed a Jekyl and Hyde, and as power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely, then government power must be prevented from becoming collectivised in the hands of one, a few, or even a majority. Based on revealed unchanging truths, the Founders understood and accepted the absolute necessity of a Constitution both limited in power and with powers strictly separated.
Founding Father Dr. Jedidiah Morse wrote:
"Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government, and all the blessings which flow from them, must fall with them."
Engraved on the Jefferson Memorial in Washington D.C. are these words of Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence and our third president:
" God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever."
George Washington wrote: "We ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself have ordained."
During the Progressive regime of Woodrow Wilson, Revealed truths and their Transcendant Author were quietly moved aside and replaced by Darwinism, with the consequence that truth became relevant, that is, subject to the whims and caprices of Mr. Hyde. This so-called modern 'evolutionary scientific approach' has been embraced by judicial appointees of both Democratic and Republican presidents for a century or more, added Watson. It also dominates today's education system, including law schools, which emphasize 'historical progress' (the movement of the Evolution Deity) rather than faith in eternal verities---and this lack of faith is transmitted to students who go on to become the leaders of our nation, publishers of news, entertainers, teachers, preachers, change-agents, news anchors, politicians, presidents, and so forth.
Political correctness, tolerance, multiculturalism, 'special rights,' 'gay' marriage-'gay-rights,' the various 'special interest' political caucuses (ie., Progressive Caucus, Stonewall Dems & Log Cabin Republicans) are compelling contemporary manifestations of Progressivism's evolutionary libertinism, which works as a universal acid on America's Christian foundations, traditions, individual liberties, and cultural institutions. Another example of Progressivism's universal acid in action is this outrage: "A homosexual man is suing a third national Bible publisher for "mental anguish" after he says the company published Bibles with a negative connotation toward homosexuals." (http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=109356)
In that the devilish Spirit of Progressivism seethes with hatred for God, moral law, unchanging truths, norms and standards, it declares that suffering (oppression) is caused by those who stand for these verities and by faith in God, which it sneeringly labels 'superstition.' In the light of truth, politically correct multiculturalism is revealed as a devilish political weapon for the sadistic smashing apart of what yet remains of America's Christian foundations. In reality, multiculturalism elevates and then demands politically correct tolerance for Islam, Wicca, Buddhism, New Age, witchcraft, satanism, goddess worship, shamanism, atheism, etc. as ways of delegitimizing and destroying America's Christian foundations. Simultaneously, the devilish spirit of political correctness receives unholy pleasure from demonizing all who dare stand for truth and moral right, such as Tea Partiers, Townhall dissidents, and Rep. Joe Wilson, who dared speak truth to power and is now under threat of punishment.
In this Politico story, note that speaking truth has been redefined as 'heckling:" "House Democratic leaders will move ahead with a "resolution of disapproval" against Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) on Tuesday afternoon, following through on their threat to sanction the conservative lawmaker for heckling President Obama during his speech to Congress last week." (http://news.yahoo.com/s/politico/20090915/pl_politico/27151_1)
Progressive Aldous Huxley inadvertantly confessed the truth about Progressism when he wrote:
"The philosopher who finds no meaning in the world is not concerned exclusively with a problem in pure metaphysics. He is also concerned to prove that there is no valid reason why he personally should not do as he wants to do, or why his friends should not seize political power and govern in the way that they find most advantageous to themselves." Huxley goes on to confess that the "reasons for holding the doctrines of (evolutionary) materialism...may be predominantly erotic..." (Libido Dominandi, E. Michael Jones, p. 28)
In other words, once man has jettisoned moral absolutes, unchanging truths and their Transcendant Author, said ex-progressive Whittaker Chambers, good and evil are just a matter of opinion, of whim, caprice, lusts. "Man without God is a beast, never more beastly than when he is most intelligent about his beastliness," said Chambers.
Paul Bogdanor, demonized by at least one Progressive communist as a rabid dog, has meticulously recorded the satanic crimes against humanity committed by Progressive "Bolsheviks" and their fellow revolutionaries on behalf of building the Progressive 'godless' heaven on earth' in Russia, which for many years was called Progressivism's "Mother Country." Below are two examples:
"Crucifixions, scalping and "bestial" torture: Russia confronts Bolshevik terror. A Russian presidential commission confirmed yesterday that 200,000 clergy were systematically murdered under Soviet rule in a horrific cycle of crucifixions, scalpings, and other "bestial tortures"...Documents relate how clergymen, monks, nuns were crucified on royal gates and shot in basements of the Cheka (secret police), scalped, strangled, drowned and submitted to other bestial tortures..." (http://www.paulbogdanor.com/left/soviet/atheism1.html)
"About 200,000 clergy, many crucified, scalped and otherwise tortured, were killed during the approximately 60 years of communist rule in the former Soviet Union...In addition, another 500,000 religious figures were persecuted and 40,000 bchurches destroyed in the period from 1922 to 1980. (http://www.paulbogdanor.com/left/soviet/atheism2.html)
In all, the total number of people systematically murdered by Progressive Communists in the Soviet Union is estimated at 100,000,000. When death totals from other communist regimes are added, the figure rises to between 200,000,000- 300,000,000, depending on the researcher.
Progressives are haters without true cause. They are "United by Hate," says Jamie Glazov, author of the book by that title. The devilish Spirit of Progressivism is the evil tree that brings forth evil fruit, while those who serve it bring forth from their mouths the evil abundance of their evil minds. (Luke 6:41-42)
