Obama: Boy Scouts Should Expose Homosexuals to Opportunities

Susan Jones (CNSNews.com) - One day after President Obama said "yes," he thinks the Boy Scouts of America should admit homosexuals -- to expose them to "opportunities and leadership" -- dozens of conservative groups are running a newspaper ad, urging the Boy Scouts to "show courage" and "stand for timeless values."

The 41 conservative organizations, in a full-page ad in Monday's USA Today, said it would be a "grave mistake" for BSA to change their longstanding policy against having openly homosexual Scout leaders or Scouts.

In a Sunday interview with "60 Minutes" Correspondent Scott Pelley, President Obama said the scouts should admit homosexuals:

"My attitude is that gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everybody else does in every institution and walk of life, and the Scouts are a great institution that are promoting young people and exposing them to opportunities and leadership that will serve people for the rest of their lives, and I think that nobody should be barred from that."

The ad running in USA Today says: "Every Scout takes an oath to keep himself 'morally straight,'" adding that the Boy Scouts "have every right to include sexual conduct in how they define that term."

It says every American who believes in freedom of thought and religious liberty should be concerned about liberal attacks on the Boy Scouts' core convictions about morality.

"To compromise moral principles under political and financial pressure would teach boys cowardice, not courage."

And aside from moral considerations, the policy is part of the BSA’s efforts to protect Scouts from sexual abuse, the conservatives said.

The ad urges Americans to call the Boy Scouts and tell them not to change their membership standards, something the BSA national board will consider doing this week.

The groups sponsoring the ad in USA Today include the the Media Research Center, which is the parent organization of CNSNews.com.

The Progressive Faithful: A Brotherhood of Heresy, Apostasy, Fantasy and Hate

In "United in Hate," Dr. Jamie Glazov digs into the spiritually toxic beliefs and madness-inducing convoluted thought processes of Progressive Liberals and all fellow travelers who, in their madness, lust to destroy the very civilization that nourishes them and allows them to exist in freedom. Glazov reveals among other things, the vile and morbid forces that impel death-wishing progressives to embrace not just catastrophically destructive, murderous nature religions such as Marxist "scientific socialism" and radical Islam but the systematic elimination of all who stand in the way of the long-fantasized about earthly utopia, or heaven on earth:

"The believer's totalitarian journey begins with an acute sense of alienation from his own society---an alienation to which he himself is completely blind. In denial about the character flaws that prevent him from bonding with his own people, the believer has convinced himself that there is something profoundly wrong with his society (and) fantasizes about building a perfect society where he will, finally, fit in." (United in Hate, Jamie Glazov, p. 6)

In other words, like Cain, spiritually desolate progressive believers see no evil within themselves. Evil is what God, Abel and a poorly designed world did and continued doing to spiritually empty Cain who murdered his brother in a vain attempt at alleviating his self-inflicted suffering. Following in Cain's footsteps, the progressive believer suffers from spiritual emptiness, a desolation,

"... of which he himself is not cognizant (thus) the believer forces non-spiritual solutions onto his spiritual problems. He exacerbates this dysfunction by trying to satisfy his every material need..." (ibid, p. 6)

Progressive believers espouse a dystopian faith, but theirs is a secular one that promises redemption of an earthly variety (socialism), said Glazov. The progressive faith is a secular religion, its' socialist dynamics,

"....constitute a mutated carbon copy of Judeo-Christian imagery. Socialism's secular utopian vision includes a fall from an ideal collective brotherhood, followed by a journey through a valley of oppression and injustice, and then ultimately a road toward redemption." (pp. 6-7)

Writing in agreement, early intellectual conservative Frank Meyers described the mutation as,

"...the final synthesis of all heretical tendencies that have pervaded Western civilization for many centuries." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement, pp. 251-252)

Secular historians James Webb, Alan Gauld and the MacKenzies concur. In their respective books they reveal that the dominant figures behind the progressive faith were mainly lapsed Evangelicals and Anglican clergymen preceded by earlier apostate Christians.

In his two books, “The Occult Underground: The Dawn of the New Age” and “The Occult Establishment,” historian James Webb chronicles the rise of an apostate Christian occult ‘elite’ as it emerged out of the Renaissance, a spiritually traumatic time in which the spiritual roots of many people were shaken free of supernatural Christianity. As a result, apostates eagerly embraced the pantheist/materialist occult traditions — Hermeticism, Theosophy, Buddhism, esoteric Kabbalism, alchemy, neo-Platonism, and Gnosticism — sweeping into Christendom at that time.

Along with all of this came spiritual evolution, reincarnation, and karma, which means that evolutionary conceptions existed long before Darwin as the respected traditionalist metaphysician Rene Guenon (1886-1951) reveals in his brilliant critical analysis of Theosophy and Spiritism entitled, "The Spiritist Fallacy."

Guenon writes that in early Theosophist and spiritist circles use of the word 'progress' or 'progressivist' preceded the use of the word 'evolution.' The roots of Theosophy, hence of evolution, stretch back to the ancient Upanishads of India and to ancient Greece, and in its modern version, progress and/or evolution describes the progress (transmigration) of soul as it inhabits in succession the bodies of different beings over the course of thousands or even millions and billions of years.

Eventually the word evolution became preferred, especially by empirical realists and materialists like Karl Marx because it had a more 'scientific' allure:

"This kind of 'verbalism'...provides the illusion of thought for those incapable of really thinking..." wrote Guenon. (ibid, p. 231).

The onslaught of skepticism, atheism, agnosticism, higher Biblical criticism, dehistorization of the Genesis account, worship of Darwin and scientism together with death-wishing, moral relativism, parasitism, androgyny (gay movement), open borders, decadence, abortion, euthanasia, tax-slavery, nature worship, occult New Age spirituality and assorted madness assaulting the tattered foundations of the West and our Republic was inspired by apostate Christians together with an unhealthy interest in spiritism. Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie explain this strange anomaly:

“There was a Christian fringe to the London socialism of the eighties, but this too was Anglican. The Christian Socialists came together in Stewart Headlam’s Guild of St. Matthew and the Land Reform Union; and the more respectable Christian Social Union, formed in 1889 — seeking in Fabian style to permeate the Anglican Church — soon attracted more than two thousand clerical members. Dissenting clergymen too began to find a place in the Fabian Society and the London Progressives, while Unitarian churches and centres like Stanton Coit’s Ethical Church provided a meeting place for believers and idealist agnostics . . . Socialism was for all of them, the new Evangelism.”

“The lesson instilled by Evangelical parents had been given a secular form. Evolution or what (Sidney) Webb called Zeitgeist, had taken the place of Providence, yet what Webb described as ‘blind social forces…which went on inexorably working out social salvation’ did not relieve men of their moral responsibility. Victorian religion had taught that a belief in God’s purposes must be accompanied by an effort to discern and advance them. Socialists who substituted a secular religion for the faith of their youth felt the same compulsion.” (Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie, The Fabians, 1977, pp. 18, 115-116)

The progenitor of the Fabian Society was the Cambridge University spiritist group, the Ghost Society founded in 1851. The Ghost Society also spawned the Society for Psychical Research (SPR) founded in 1887:

“Council Members and Honorary Members of the SPR included a past Prime Minister (William Gladstone)…and a future Prime Minister (Arthur Balfour)…2 bishops; and Tennyson and Ruskin, two of the outstanding literary figures of the day (as well as) Lewis Carroll (and) a surprising number of titled persons.” (Alan Gauld, The Founders of Psychical Research, p. 140)

Above all else, revolutionary progressive socialist organizations such as the Fabians consisted of committed Darwinian elitists intolerant of free market systems, individual liberties, private property and cumbersome processes of democracy who wanted to see a new order ruled by a superior caste.

John Taylor Gatto, former New York State and New York City Teacher of the Year, also tracked the rise of this destructive faith and its neo-pagan occult ‘elite’ together with the potent interconnected shadow-government they created to radically reshape the Western and American consciousness. In his book, “The Underground History of of American Education” Gatto points to Fabian socialists as one of the most powerfully effective revolutionary ‘change-making’ organizations and notes that Darwin was the ‘weird holy man’ they adored,

“…the man who gave them a theory inspirationally equal to god-theory, around which a new organization of society could be justified.” (p. 180)

In “Science, Politics and Gnosticism,” highly-respected political philosopher Eric Voegelin (1901-85) examines the Gnostic roots of the progressive faith. His indepth analysis reveals that modern Gnostic movements run the gamut from Progressive Liberalism to Comte’s positivism, dialectical materialism, Hegelianism, Marxist Communism and Nazi Socialism to Schleiermacher’s doctrine of faith, and theosophy.

Putting it all together, the progressive faith is in fact a "mutated carbon copy of Judeo-Christian imagery"--- a 'new' pagan form of ancient pre-Christian and Christian-era Gnosticism in which salvation---the loss of self and individuality by way of submersion within for example, a monistic World Soul or communal consciousness --- is attained through the knowledge of Gnostic teachers (i.e., contemporary spiritual guides, gurus, 'experts,' certain ‘scientists’) possessed of the Gnostic cosmology, or evolutionary un-creation account.

The former Soviet Union exemplifies the Gnostic progressive faith in its' materialist dress. Communism then is a philosophically materialist form of apostate Protestant (occult pantheist) liberalism’s evolutionary proclamation of a coming millennial new order grounded in belief in the inevitability of upward evolutionary progress (from dead-matter to amoeba to sea-weed, reptile, ape, man and then finally god-man) and of the perfectibility of this fallen world.

It was Marxist materialists who made the first attempt to scientifically re-engineer human beings after the fashion of Buddha's programmatic nihilism said Vishal Mangalwadi, India's foremost Christian intellectual. After seizing control of Russia, they utilized mind-conditioning techniques such as propaganda and re-education with emphasis on Darwinism as well as mind-altering drugs, electro-shock therapy, torture, terror and other brutal measures to,

"...liquidate all expressions of individual identity in favor of an impersonal collective, communal consciousness." (The Book that Made Your World, Mangalwadi, p. 74)

Prior to the turn of the century, the living, supernatural God was dead in the hearts of America's spiritually desolate 'elite' progressives, and upon the arrival of Swami Vivekananda at the Parliament of Religions in Chicago in 1893 they eagerly embraced him:

"He was immediately lionized by high society in Boston and New York. Philosophers at Harvard were mightily impressed. Many wealthy high society types and intellectuals reverted to the Buddhist idea that self is an illusion. They constituted a '... hard core of disciples who supported him and his grandiose dream: the evangelizing of the Western world by....Vedantic (monistic) Hinduism." (Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 21)

Vedanta Societies were established in America and Europe for the purpose of injecting Vedantic ideas into the bloodstream of the West and America. Among those who helped disseminate Vedanta monism were Aldous Huxley, Christopher Isherwood, Somerset Maugham, and Teilhard de Chardin.

The Sixties witnessed a whole series of Indian gurus make their mark on the student generation. Progressive elites introduced popular culture to any number of nature-beliefs, from Vedanta monism, Zen Buddhism, pantheism, panentheism, reincarnation and karma to belief in a vague immanent 'force,' World Soul, Gaia (Mother Earth) and Teilhard de Chardin's Omega Point:

".....de Chardin believed that humanity could achieve a form of Godhood or a high level of spirituality called the Omega Point. This was an evolutionary process that everyone could attain through discipline and dedication to the path of enlightenment." (Reflections of the Omega Point, Frank Tipler, omegapoint.org)

The exciting new progressive pagan spirituality discouraged belief in the Biblical God and promised followers that by dedication to the path of enlightenment they would attain godhood through the merging of their souls with the cosmic universe. Through guided imagery, Tantric sex, kundalini yoga, hypnosis, possibility-thinking, dream-work, past-life regression, mind-altering drugs, rhythmic music, and spiritistic practices such as channeling, initiates could be raised to new levels of consciousness, develop psychic powers, release their souls from their bodies through astral projection and merge their consciousness with the void.

In his article, "Confronting Neo-Paganism in the Culture and the Church" Dr. Peter Jones reports that many of the progressive architects of the new spirituality,

".... such as Aldous Huxley, Joseph Campbell, and Huston Smith were converts of Vedanta... Contemporary architects... call themselves 'Cultural Creatives,' 'Progressives,' 'Evolutionaries,' 'Integral Spiritualists,' 'Interspiritualists' or 'Transtraditional Spiritualists.' It is doubtless true to say that the key New Age leaders and their present disciples all claim some form of Vedantic enlightenment." (truthexchange, Apr. 12, 2011)

Tragically, it is already the case that for increasing numbers of contemporary progressives the death of God has made it impossible for them to affirm the existence of the human self thus they actively seek the annihilation of their souls through drugs, Tantric sex, yoga, and meditation. As with Buddha and contemporary Hindu gurus some initiates are trying to merge their individual consciousness with the void.

The progressive faith reverses and inverts each major tenet of God’s Revealed Word. For example, neither Lucifer nor man has fallen from perfection into sin but is evolving ever upward toward greater and greater perfection. The living, supernatural God is supplanted by a living energy called evolution--identified by some occult insiders as the seething energies of Lucifer and the Angel Lucifer. In any case, Lucifer's seething energies (evolution) are the principle miracle-producing powers of an evolving universe infused with divine consciousness while human beings are themselves evolving upward toward a divinity of their own and can now achieve ever-higher levels of consciousness by directing their own evolution because they are no longer created in the spiritual image of the living, supernatural God since Lucifer--- the first free-thinker---has liberated them. Man’s rational self-consciousness—reason, will and intellect—supplants the Mind of God and is the first inkling of man’s own latent divinity.

In one form or another, the Gnostic progressive faith has so far produced every bloody utopian politico-religious movement of the 20th century, and said Glazov,

"It is crucial to emphasize...that the believer is indifferent to the consequences of his own ideology in the sense that he needs to deny them in public. This is because he fears that their exposure will delegitimize his pursuit of his own neurotic urges. The believer therefore consistently denies what is actually happening within the totalisms he worships. Even if it is proven to him that his revolutionary idols perpetrate mass oppression and slaughter, he will take pains not to speak of it (because) privately he approves of the carnage (because it) is what attracts him in the first place." (Glazov, p. 8)

Today the murderous, madness-inducing progressive faith underpins contemporary 'green' occult-pantheist New Age globalist hopes and visions of a coming 'sustainable' socialist world order:

"The Obama administration continues to move forward with its “green” agenda, despite new concerns on the heels of a high-profile bankruptcy in the solar-energy sector. More recently, approximately 500 Texans lost their jobs Monday because of Environmental Protection Agency regulations on the energy industry." (Obama administration marches forward with ‘green’ agenda despite Solyndra scandal, Matthew Boyle, The Daily Caller, Sep 14, 2011)

Obama has been close friends with progressive terrorists throughout his political career,

"...including Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn (as well as sitting) for twenty years in the church of the socialist Reverend Wright whose antipathy towards the United States has become famous." (Glazov, p. 168)

In whatever form it takes, the progressive faith proclaims the same millenial fantasy: a coming “new order” in which all Biblical moral standards, sexual ethics and traditions—--seen as relative to a particular stage in the ongoing process of evolution—--will be forever changed just as all distinctions between life forms and gender will be blurred in the idea of evolution from molecule to man to god-man. In the same way, all distinctions between nations and religions will be blurred in the vision of this-worldly perfection.

Evolution together with the progressive proclamation of a coming new world order is what Fr. Seraphim Rose described as,

“(a) deep-seated primordial force, which seems to capture people quite apart from their conscious attitudes and reasoning (because) it’s been drilled into everyone from the cradle, and therefore is very hard to bring out and look at rationally.” (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Seraphim Rose, p. 35)

Throughout America and the West, progressive believers are both evangelists of unbelief in the God of Revelation and the Divine Truth that once sustained Westerners and Americans as well as enforcers of this particular unbelief. In this light, they are contemporary evangelists of the still spreading apostasy to occult neo-paganism and universal evolutionism that has characterized the modern age since its beginning.

Obamacare Punishes Smokers but not the Promiscuous. Why Not?

By Wesley J. SmithJanuary 26, 2013 11:35 A.M. National Review

Obamacare outlawed underwriting by health insurance companies. In other words, if we are diagnosed with cancer, run 10Ks, have diabetes or a family history of heart attacks, we all pay the same price.

Fine. But there is one big exception. Smokers, who can be charged a huge insurance surcharge for their unhealthy habit. From the AP story:

If 1 in 5 U.S. adults smoke, and 1 in 3 are obese, why not just get off their backs and let them go on with their (probably shortened) lives? Because it’s not just about them, say some health economists, bioethicists and public health researchers. “Your freedom is likely to be someone else’s harm,” said Daniel Callahan, senior research scholar at a bioethics think-tank, the Hastings Center…

That’s the rationale for a provision in the Affordable Care Act – “Obamacare” to its detractors – that starting next year allows health insurers to charge smokers buying individual policies up to 50 percent higher premiums. A 60-year-old could wind up paying nearly $5,100 on top of premiums.

Living unhealthy lifestyles has become the new Scarlet Letter. That’s what happens with centralized health care. But once we go down that road, it won’t end there. Smokers today, the obese tomorrow.

This financial stick is entirely political. Notice we never hear experts wanting to “punish” the promiscuous for the cost burden they inflict on the health care system. Yet people who sleep around, like smokers and the obese, cost the rest of us plenty–what with promiscuity leading to sexually transmitted diseases, some cancers, HIV, unwanted pregnancies, mental health issues, etc. Why isn’t what is good for the goose also good for the gander?

That won’t happen because society celebrates promiscuity and the popular culture glamorizes licentious lifestyles the way it once extolled smoking. Consider: Girls. We applaud basketball players who sleep with 20,000 women. We ooh, and ah over Reality TV celebrities, with no talent other than living provocatively before the camera, who sleep around and get very publicly pregnant. We even tend to think something is wrong with virgins who are older than 18.

If we are going to outlaw underwriting, it should apply across the board. But if we are going to punish unhealthy lifestyles with higher insurance premiums, that too should apply across the board. After all, “equality” is the new buzz word, right?

(Don’t get me wrong: I certainly support incentives for healthier living–as Whole Foods does by giving healthy-living employees deeper store discounts. But financial sticks to the side of the head imposed by Obamacare regulators based, in part, on political correctness? Absolutely not.)

Albert Mohler: The Moral Evacuation of the Boy Scouts of America

AlbertMohler.com And Elijah came near to all the people and said, “How long will you go on limping between two different opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him.” 1 Kings 18:21

The announcement this week that the Boy Scouts of America may soon rescind its national policy prohibiting the participation of openly homosexual members and leaders fell like a thunderclap. The B.S.A. national board is expected to approve the change early next week, just six months after that same board had announced that no change would be made, citing the unanimous recommendation of a special study committee. Back then, the B.S.A. CEO said that the “vast majority” of Boy Scout parents supported the policy.

That was then, but this is now. Just six months later, the B.S.A. board is prepared to capitulate to massive pressure from gay rights activists and their allies, some inside the board itself. The proposed policy amounts to a local option, with each Boy Scout unit deciding its own policy. As for the Boy Scouts of America — the national group will “under no circumstances” dictate a national policy on the question of homosexuality.

This capitulation and the abandonment of the B.S.A.’s longstanding policy will, in the end, please no one. The new policy is a half-measure that amounts to cowardly moral evasion. No group can remain divided on a question of such moral importance and urgency. Homosexual conduct and relationships will be condemned or celebrated. There is no middle ground. Back in 2004, the B.S.A. maintained that homosexual conduct is “inconsistent” with the “morally straight” requirement of the Scout Oath. Now, the B.S.A. will claim to have no position whatsoever on the issue. This fails the test of seriousness.Those who believe that homosexual conduct is sin cannot endorse the new local option policy, and Scouting units that hold to this position will inevitably be marginalized. Those who celebrate and demand the normalization of homosexuality, on the other hand, cannot and will not be satisfied with a half-measure like a local option.

The predicted response now comes in the form of an editorial in the January 30, 2013 edition of The New York Times. After pointing to the B.S.A. policy proposal as an indication of the nation’s moral shift on homosexuality, the paper then complains that the policy “falls far short of the clear and strong renunciation of anti-gay bigotry that is called for.” That will be the emphatic judgement of the cultural left and of gay rights activists. It is also inevitable, given the nature of this controversy.

The new policy, says the Times, is “an unprincipled position” and a “partial move” that “should hardly satisfy” those demanding the full inclusion of homosexuals at every level and in every Boy Scout unit.

At this point, the editors go for a killer strike on the B.S.A.’s “unprincipled position.” In their words: “The new policy would, however, undermine the rationale the Supreme Court voiced in 2000 when it affirmed the right of the Scouts to discriminate against gay people. The 5-to-4 ruling turned on the court’s acceptance of the Scouts’ claim that being anti-gay was a ‘core’ part of its mission and that its freedom of association right trumped any state nondiscrimination rules.”

This is a key insight, and an indication of just how unworkable and unprincipled the new policy proposal really is. As the Times editors continued: “Now that the group is on the verge of making discrimination optional, it can no longer claim that discrimination is a “core” purpose — and therefore state nondiscrimination rules should apply to the Scouts. The halfway policy change would inevitably invite litigation.”

That is an understatement. The “halfway policy” will also invite the obvious realization that the Boy Scouts of America is now abandoning what the group claimed was a “core” belief and conviction just thirteen years ago. The new policy reveals what will stand at the core of the Boy Scouts of America’s national policy — a vacuum of moral conviction.

This will not only fail the test of litigation, it will fail the test of moral sense. On this much, both sides in the controversy over homosexuality are agreed. The Boy Scouts of America will destroy themselves by this policy change. If they will not believe that argument when it comes from the “vast majority” of parents, or from the churches and faith-based groups that sponsor the greatest number of Boy Scout units, perhaps they will hear the argument now coming from the editors of The New York Times.

Then again, maybe not.

What the BSA will Invite In: Dark Impulses Empowered and Applauded by the Infinity of Darkness

In a New York Post commentary titled, "Scouting's Suicide," writer Edward Whelan argues that if the Boy Scouts cave into 'gay' demands for tolerance and inclusion their abandonment of the teaching against homosexual conduct will have paved the way for, "...activists to sue troops that adhere to the traditional policy and to threaten troop leaders with personal liability." ("Scoutings Suicide: New gay policy can’t work," Whelan, nypost.com, January 31, 2013)

It’s equally clear said Whelan,

"...that, whatever short-term peace the change might buy, it won’t appease the ideological opposition in the long run." (ibid)

Terms like 'gay,' ideologue, leftwing, atheist humanist, secular, free-thinker, communist, Marxist, Nazi and homosexual lend themselves to confusion while clear-speaking lends itself to clear thinking.

Clear thinking requires plain, easy to understand propositions such as: all men---including those who hide their true intentions behind the aforementioned word-disguises--- are sinners. This being the case, while some humans can and will submit their wills to transcendant truth and moral constraints, many others will not. To the strong-willed, even the word "no" is an imposition resulting in wrath:

"For the law worketh wrath. For where there is no law, neither is there transgression." Romans 4:15

Into every generation are born Cain-like individuals who, even as children, are willful, rebellious, sneaky, contemptuous, spiteful, malicious, manipulative, resentful and hateful toward every vestige of authority and moral constraint, which they view as impositions upon their absolute sovereignty. To such people, sin is not what they do but what other people are always guilty of doing to them. It is not, for example, the case that Cain tells lies but that Abel prevents Cain from telling his own version of 'truth.'

As adults, Cain-like people see it as their mission in life to subvert, pervert, and tear down all moral law (restraints) and institutions that stand between themselves and their insatiable egos and base appetites. The working principle of this sort of person is: “I am, therefore I am entitled.”

By whatever innocent-sounding arguments 'gay' activists use to persuade and goad, their ultimate goal is liberation from all aspects of God's Revelation beginning with, "He made them man and woman."

The taproot of modern "gay" liberation stretches back to 1700. It was then that a group of apostate Christendom Cain’s calling themselves “freethinkers” had begun agitating against God's Revelation, the Christian church, and moral constraints. In 1708, Jonathan Swift--famous for his acerbic satire--- skewered freethinkers and the ‘social advantages’ they saw in the abolition of Christianity:

“I appeal to the...polite freethinker, whether in the pursuit of gratifying...passion, he hath not always felt a wonderful incitement by reflecting it was a thing forbidden...It is...proposed as a great advantage to the public that if we...discard...the Gospel, all religion will be banished forever, and consequently those grievous prejudices of education, which under the names of virtue, conscience, honour, justice, and the like (are) so apt to disturb the peace of human minds (and) so hard to be eradicated by right reason or freethinking, sometimes during the whole course of our lives.” (Gulliver’s Travels and Other Writings, Jonathan Swift, pp 449-454)

Christianity said Swift, is hateful to free-thinkers because by,

"...laying restraints on human nature (it is) the great enemy of the freedom of thought and action. “ (ibid, Jonathan Swift)

When we consider that the great heros, or liberators,' consistently hailed by modern Cains are murderous, despotic barbarians such as Pol Pot, Kim Jung II, Fidel Castro, Lenin, Stalin, and Sadam Hussein it comes as no surprise that the foul pervert and murderer—the Marquis de Sade—is lauded by "gay" liberationists.

De Sade is the role model for contemporary "sexual orientation" and "alternative lifestyle" groups, and is celebrated as a,

“....heroic apostle of individual rights, a giant of philosophical thought, and a martyr for freedom of conscience.” (Sade, a Biographical Essay, by Lawrence Bongie, 2000)

In a 1951 essay, “Must We Burn Sade,” Simone de Beauvoir (icon of lesbian goddess feminists) identifies Sade as a forerunner of Freud with an intuitive grasp of the nature of the human heart. In celebration of abnormality and dark appetites, Beauvoir wrote:

“Not only does Sade...anticipate...the ‘pansexuality’ of Freud, but he also makes eroticism the mainspring of human behavior...He knew that the ‘perversions’ that are vulgarly regarded as moral monstrosities or psychological defects actually envelop...intentionality. In a passage in ‘La Nouvelle Justine’ he tries to explain coprophillia (excitement over feces)....(and) he points out that the truth of a thing lies not in what it is but in the meaning it has taken on for us in the course of our individual experience. Intuitions such as these allow us to hail Sade as a precursor of psychoanalysis.” (Douglas Lynott, www.crimelibrary.com).

Lynott not only provides us with an idea of Sade’s obscene "sexual orientations" but also the depths of the evil passions which motivate contemporary, powerful 'gay' movement insiders:

“Assisted by his wife, two other young adult women...and his valet, Sade assembled his captives daily for a mélange of activities: masturbation, fellatio, sodomy, sodomy chains, and...scourging. The very acts that cause...people of reason and morals to recoil in terror provided the Marquis with sensations of ecstasy: the physical and emotional domination of another and the violent destruction of youthful innocence. This ecstasy is portrayed by one of the protagonists of “Philosophy in the Boudoir,” who exclaims, “How delicious to corrupt, to stifle all semblances of virtue and religion in that young heart!” (ibid)

Sade revealed that dark inner ‘promptings’ are the source of his ‘sexual orientations’ when he wrote:

“I wanted only to try to live in accord with the promptings which came from my true self. Was that so very difficult?” (ibid)

As free moral agents, we always have the choice to either act upon or to reject dark promptings. Just as we can choose to lie, cheat, and steal we can choose not to commit these sins. Sade obviously never developed the inner self-discipline necessary to reject his dark promptings. Thus he first became controlled by them, and then eventually was transformed by them into an obscenely perverse creature whose name became synonymous with sado-masochism, which had thus become the source of his ‘true self’ after the fashion of the men of Sodom and Gomorrah:

"Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom — both young and old — surrounded the house. They called to Lot, 'Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.'" Genesis 19

The "gay" rights operative scheme now comes into focus. First, like their father the devil, they hold out temptations to seduce the unwary into giving into and acting upon dark promptings. This they call the self-actualization process. Then the actualized ‘dark impulses’ are deceptively cast as ‘sexual orientations.” In this manner they create ‘sexually oriented’ special-rights groups which are then manipulated into destroying America’s traditional Christian-grounded culture while simultaneously allowing 'gay' Cains to have 'legal' access to our most vulnerable: children and young adults.

In “The Politics of Bad Faith” (www.discoverthenetwork.org), former red-diaper baby David Horowitz writes that powerful 'queer' activists plan to create a "queer utopia” populated by "queer genderless beings’:

“Queer revolution is thus the ultimate subversive project: It proclaims not only the death of...God, but of Nature’s Law...theirs is the ultimate Nietzschean fantasy: a world in which humanity is God. The future will give birth to a new revolutionary people, no longer male and female, but queer. Queer is the Promethean category of the post-modernist Left.”

In a blatant endeavor to violate and destroy the innocence of youth and enslave them to dark impulses that they can "have sex with" children and animals as well as rape females, consider the following examples from our Cain-controlled academia:

(Warning: Very Graphic Descriptions)

Prof. Peter Singer of Princeton advocates bestiality:

“Sex with animals does not always include cruelty...not everyone objects to being used by his or her dog...” (Source: ‘Whistleblower”: Brainwashing 101, vol. 14, no. 9)

Prof. Marjorie Garber of Harvard encourages “not just love of dogs, but love with dogs as well.” (ibid)

Prof. Susan Scotto of Mount Holyoke teaches a ‘stripping class” while Prof. Harris Mirkin of the U. of Missouri encourages pedophilia:

“Children are the last bastion of the old sexual morality” (ibid)

U. of Colorado Prof. Craig Palmer wrote the book, “A Natural History of Rape” which states that rape confers a selective advantage on men. (ibid)

Efforts at "violently destroying the innocence of youth,” this time of teens, is evidenced by the following examples:

1. “Time Magazine: School Event Exposes Massive Cultural Campaign to Promote Homosexuality to Kids” (Robert Knight and Benjamin Frichtl; Concerned Women for America)

Having successfully unleashed moral and sexual anarchy upon America, Cains now seek to have anyone who objects declared mentally insane:

“Calif. Psychologist Wants ‘Extreme Bias’ Against Homosexuals Added to DSM” (Washington Post, Shankar Vedantam)

For many long years Americans have been abandoning the Gospel with the result that our culture both looks and smells like a rancid cesspool. Now the Boy Scouts are under pressure to submit to Cains perverse demands. But as Whelan warned, if they abandon their moral standards in a foolish attempt at appeasement, they will eventually be forced to surrender every vestige of morality and as they swirl down the toilet, find themselves welcoming the men of Sodom and Gomorrah:

"....we are going to destroy this place. The outcry to the Lord against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it.” Genesis 19

In increasing numbers, Americans are rejecting their Creator, the God of Revelation in whose spiritual image they are created. Thus they no longer know that human beings are meant for higher things and noble causes. We are not meant to behave like beasts in heat. Sex is soul-deep, not just skin-deep, thus we are men and women—not ‘sexual orientations.' These aberrations are the true ‘social constructions' whose taproot is Sodom and Gomorrah. They are inventions of Cain---birthed by dark impulses, brought to life in the imagination---empowered and applauded by the infinity of darkness. To embrace them is to embrace the self-loathing idea that we are less than we are.

The Islamization of Europe: The Silent Conquest of a Continent

Michael YoussefTownhall.com

There’s been a lot of discussion within some in the media regarding the demographic changes taking place in Europe. But those of us who’ve travelled there have observed it firsthand: namely, the decreased birthrate among Europeans compared to the enormous birthrate increase among Muslim immigrants.

Overall, the birthrate across the continent is far below the replacement level of 2.1 children per couple. Italy, Spain, Austria, and Germany have a fertility rate of only 1.4, while Poland and Russia languish at 1.3 and 1.2, respectively.

However, as a subgroup, Muslims in Europe are producing from 4 to 6 children per couple. Encouraged by some sheiks in Muslim countries who have forbidden the use of birth control, Muslim immigrants are producing children at two to three times the rate of Europeans.

Even Muslims in Europe who came from more westernized Islamic countries, like Turkey and Tunisia, have twice the birthrate of other Europeans. And the rate among their second generations is holding to that factor.

There are many projections as to when the Muslim population will gain a majority in Europe. Some say it could be as soon as 2025. Others as late as 2050.

Regardless of when Muslims become the majority in Europe, that turning point will present one of the greatest ironies in 1,400 years of European history.

Ever since Islamic expansion under Caliphates Umar and Usman, Muslims have tried again and again to invade and defeat Europe. But they failed.

The Ottomans got the closest; in fact, as close as Austria. But ultimately, that attempt and all others were unsuccessful. Until now. As Sheik Yousef Quardawi has been quoted to have said: “What our forbears failed to do by the sword, this generation is accomplishing through legitimate birthright, immigration, and petro-dollars.”

It’s impossible to predict whether radicals or more westernized elements will dominate the coming generation of majority Muslims. Certainly the current push for Sharia implementation in many European countries, including England, presents a foreboding omen.

That news doesn’t bode well for atheists, agnostics, and secular humanists. At least Christians and Jews will be treated as demis, or second-class citizens. But the Sharia will have no such leniency for out and out non-believers.

What will happen to the gospel of “tolerance” that secular forces preach today? Although purveyors of that gospel are, in reality, the most intolerant of all, that won’t matter. “Tolerance” is used to give Islamists a foothold in the West, and then the proselytizers of that gospel will be swept into the dustbin of Islamic intolerance.

As a believer whose permanent home is in Heaven with Christ, I grieve over those who are being led away from His incredible love. Jesus is reaching out to them through Christian believers; He longs for them to turn to Him before it is too late.

I grieve for them, but I will not give up praying for them.

5 Reasons 2/23/2013 is Going to Be a Day of Resistance

John HawkinsTownhall.com

Last year, when a Republican candidate should have waltzed to victory, Mitt Romney got his teeth knocked in by a man who could fairly be called the single least competent American President in history. This beating had very real consequences.

1) Barack Obama feels empowered: Liberals are always vulgar in defeat and hubristic in victory, but Barack Obama has become so toweringly arrogant that it wouldn't be a surprise if he were getting himself fitted for a crown. He's acting as if he expects to have anything and everything he wants handed to him on a silver platter and if anything gets in his way, he'll simply shred the Constitution, ignore the law, or issue an executive order and dare the Republican Party to do something about it.

2) The Republicans In Congress have lost their nerve: Republicans on the Hill have turned into a pack of cringing dogs since the election. They've lost the will to fight on spending cuts, they're seriously considering an amnesty for illegal aliens and Karl Rove and his establishment pals at American Crossroads are now planning to target conservatives in Republican primaries. There's not a single issue where you can trust the Republicans in Congress to hold the line because they've lost confidence in themselves, the people who elected them, and conservatism.

3) The conservative grassroots is demoralized: Conservatives haven't lost faith in their principles, but they've started to wonder if the country has passed a tipping point. Do we have too many takers and not enough makers? Is the Republican Party so hopelessly incompetent that it's time to give in? What's the point of fighting to help the country when the Republicans we have in office are just going to let us down yet again? Are we fiscally doomed no matter what we do?

4) The Democrats want to take our guns away: The Democrats are following Rahm Emanuel's cynical advice to the hilt and are determined to "Never let a crisis go to waste." There's not a gun control bill on the table that would do anything to stop another Sandy Hook, but the point is disarming the American people, not stopping massacres. Since the Democrats can't get away with banning guns....yet, their goal is to limit the 2nd Amendment rights of law abiding Americans as much as humanly possible.

5) The Democrats are overreaching: Less than three years after the worst defeat they’ve suffered in fifty years, the Democrats are acting like the whole country has become another San Francisco. Their message to Republicans? Go to hell! To Independents? We don't need you anymore! To even moderate Democrats? This isn't your party anymore. Meanwhile, "In nine of the ten sixth-year Congressional elections since 1910, the president’s party has lost seats in the Senate and in the House. The average loss in the Senate has been 8.6 seats and in the House it was 30 seats." In other words, if we play it smart, we are poised to have a monster year in 2014 that could increase our margin in the House and put the Senate back in Republican hands.

This is why we're organizing Day of Resistance rallies all across the country. Barack Obama, the Democrats, and even the Republicans in Congress need to be reminded that the Tea Party is still here and those of us in the grassroots are not sitting down, shutting up, or giving in. That goes double for Americans who care about their Second Amendment rights. The Democrats believe they can demonize gun owners and try to take your guns away without having to worry about any consequences at the ballot box. We need to show them that they're wrong.

We're off to a good start. This effort, which was begun by Dustin Stockton of Western Representation PAC and The Tea Party.net is less than two weeks old, but we're already getting close to the 100 rally mark and dozens of new protests are being added every day. Tiffiny Ruegner of Women Warrior's PAC has even done a press conference promoting the event in front of Diane Feinstein’s office.

Want more information? Keep an eye on Right Wing News and The Tea Party News Network. Want to help? Share the videos (here and here or the graphics), forward, tweet and email this column, volunteer to help, or sign up to organize a rally at Day of Resistance.com.

Folks, I am proud to be one of the people who has been helping to get these protests off the ground from the very beginning and I want you to be there with me because I absolutely believe that this will be the moment when the conservative comeback for 2014 begins. We're going to have hundreds of peaceful conservative rallies all across the country and unlike the Occupy movement, we'll be showered, we won't be breaking the law, and we won't need any "rape free zones" to make women feel safe at our rallies. This is going to be the moment when the conservative movement stops backing up. This will be the time when law abiding Americans send a resolute "No more" to the gun grabbers in Congress. This will be the day when the retreat that started with Mitt Romney's loss ends and the conservative movement once again starts to resist!

Scouting's Suicide: 'Gay' Policy won't Work

EDWARD WHELANNew York Post

Imagine that a group of girls is going on a long camping trip, supervised by adult volunteers who are young men you barely know. Would you let your 15-year-old daughter go?

Nearly every parent, I think, would recognize the folly, even though the men might well be models of good behavior. Why should our common-sense response be any different if the 15-year-old is a boy and the possible, even if not-likely-to-be-acted-on, sexual attraction of the adult supervisors is homosexual rather than heterosexual?

Sadly, in the face of intense pressure from ideologues, the Boy Scouts of America are reportedly on the verge of abandoning their long-held policy against gay scout leaders. Among the many corporations facing petition campaigns from gay activists, Merck and UPS recently announced that their charitable foundations would no longer contribute to the Boy Scouts.

Under the policy change that the Scouts’ national board will consider next week, the churches, schools and civic groups that sponsor troops would each be free to adopt their own policies on gay leaders and scouts.

Yet this proposed revision is incoherent and unworkable. The national Boy Scouts leadership obviously recognizes that it’s legitimate to disapprove of homosexual conduct, as the revised policy would let troops continue to exclude gays. But the change would deprive those troops of the protection that only a uniform national policy provides.

Different troops routinely interact at summer camps and other gatherings, and the staffers at those camps come from various troops. If the Scouts abandon their national policy, a troop that is chartered by a church that opposes homosexual conduct on moral grounds loses much of its ability to protect its scouts from being subjected to actions and statements that contradict the church’s teachings.

Consider, for example, something as simple as how a camp staffer might explain the meaning of the scout oath to be “morally straight.” Or how leaders and scouts from a pro-gay troop might provocatively highlight their new position with scouts from other troops.

Under the new policy, in which the national organization “would not, under any circumstances, dictate a position” to troops, what is to stop that from happening?

The legal problems with the revised policy are even more severe — and could spell ruin for lots of troops and scoutmasters.

In 2000, the Boy Scouts won a big Supreme Court victory against state laws that bar discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. That victory rested heavily on the fact that the Boy Scouts taught that homosexual conduct was contrary to their values.

But if the national group abandons that teaching against homosexual conduct, it paves the way for activists to sue troops that adhere to the traditional policy and to threaten troop leaders with personal liability.

Few troops could afford the expense and hassle of defending against these suits.

It’s equally clear that, whatever short-term peace the change might buy, it won’t appease the ideological opposition in the long run. Anyone who believes that it’s wrong for the Boy Scouts to require troops to exclude gays will also believe that it’s wrong for the Boy Scouts to allow troops to do so. The proposed surrender to pressure will just set up the next surrender to pressure.

As the father of a soon-to-be Eagle Scout, I’ve taken part in summer camps, a canoeing trip in remote northern Ontario and several other overnight outings. I can attest that privacy is often at a minimum. Injecting the aura of possible sexual attraction would degrade the experience.

Boy Scouts range in age from 10 up to 18, and Cub Scouts are as young as 7. Boys become scouts in order to hike, camp, shoot guns and arrows and learn other outdoor skills.

And many parents choose the Boy Scouts to provide the environment for these activities precisely because, in an age awash in the wreckage of moral relativism, the Scouts have stood strong. Those parents who wish a different environment for their sons should join other groups or build their own.

The Boy Scouts are — or at least have been — a great organization that has done so much to help transform young boys into fine men and to serve America’s communities. Unfortunately, in the warped progressive understanding of diversity, all organizations must be the same. The Boy Scouts are a target of the Left precisely because they have, until now, upheld traditional moral standards.

Among the virtues set forth in the Scout Law, a scout is trustworthy and brave. The leaders of the Boy Scouts will betray those virtues if they cave to pressure and abandon their national policy. The Boy Scouts deserve better.

Spiritually, Morally, Culturally Desolate America: Victim of the Matrix

Over on the Russian news portal rt.com is an essay entitled, "How the Russian soul can save the American Empire" which could be summarized this way: There are none so blind as they who cannot see. In other words, those who live within the forest are mostly blind to the calamitous spread of root rot, insidious blights, infestations, parasites, and over-all weirdness creeping over and destroying the forest from within. It takes a prophet of God such as Amos or Jeremiah or a particularly discerning watchman to clearly see the ominous danger signs. The essayist observes that due to its commitment to materialism and individualism (moral autonomy) like Russia before it, America has become a spiritual shipwreck:

"First we should step back and consider the moral and physical condition of the United States. After all, empires usually collapse not from financial crisis, or greedy bankers, but from internal decay brought about by a precipitous decline in morals and civility. In other words, America has much more to fear from a moral meltdown than any existential threat from abroad." (How the Russian soul can save the American Empire, rt.com, 25 June, 2010)

Despite its' Christian beginnings, America is now an increasingly paganized society characterized by idolization of evolutionary scientism, sovereign 'self' and Emergent and apostate 'Christianity' that pins its hope,

"...for eternal happiness and wellbeing on material progress. The endless inventions and gadgets provided courtesy of the church of science have turned a God-fearing people into tinkering gods themselves, capable of casting their own miracles and charting their own destinies." (ibid)

In many ways America is quickly falling into the abyss that Russia fell into after its seizure by 'scientific' socialists. For Russians, the living, supernatural God of Revelation was declared 'dead' and supplanted by miracle-working matter and the physical world of the senses while Communism was touted as an earthly heaven. The doctrine of original sin was abandoned and the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo replaced with Darwinian and similar evolutionary cosmogonies such as dialectical materialism claiming spontaneous generation and vast ages of time. With knowledge limited to the sensory realm and life held to be an emergent product of dead matter, man created in the spiritual likeness of his supernatural Creator was lost. In his place stood the soulless hominid, an accidental emergent product of spontaneously-generated mystical matter and evolutionary forces:

"Marxist philosophical materialism remains beyond all doubt that at some time or other in the remote past, life must have arisen from non-living matter." (Outline of Dialectical Materialism, 1948, p. 494)

Darwinism destroyed the foundations of supernatural Christianity and man's soul/spirit:

"Darwinism came at the desired time; Darwin's theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma." (Anton Pannekoek, "Marxism and Darwinism," translated by Nathan Weiser. Transcribed for the Internet by Jon Muller, Chicago, Charles H. Kerr & Company Co-operative Copyright, 1912 by Charles H. Kerr & Company)

Ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn concurs:

“We turned our backs upon the Spirit and embraced all that is material with excessive and unwarranted zeal... Everything beyond physical well-being and accumulation of material goods, all other human requirements and characteristics of a subtler and higher nature, were left outside the area of attention of state and social systems, as if human life did not have any superior sense.” (Harvard Address, June 1978)

If Darwin was right, man is nothing more than a soulless bag of chemicals or equally soulless hominid and there is no ultimate fixed meaning or higher purpose to life except material success and whatever autonomous 'self' desires, lusts after, envies, or hates. As a consequence, when an individual’s inherent value is based purely on material success,

"...then a person’s inner sense of purpose and self-identity will collapse when the rickety scaffolding is suddenly removed. Due to this inner emptiness, any sort of personal tragedy – the simple loss of a job, for example, or a failed marriage – is enough to push stressed-out Americans right over the edge. At this point, desperation finds its way into the driver’s seat, with a handgun or two in the glove compartment." (How the Russian soul can save the American Empire)

Even more ominous, if God is dead and Darwinian materialism is true making man just a bag of chemicals--an inanimate object destined to be recycled as fertilizer with neither hope of an afterlife nor any accountability to his Maker for his actions here in this world---then it makes a devilish kind of sense to make use of the bag of chemicals for the furtherance of science as was the case in both the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.

In "Victims of Nazi anatomists named," the pro-evolution BBC reports:

"According to medical historian Paul Weindling, almost 25,000 victims of Nazi scientific experiments have now been identified. Dr Weindling says there were different "phases" to the Nazis' experiments. The first was linked to eugenics and forced sterilisation. The second phase coincided with the start of the war. 'Doctors began experimenting on patients in psychiatric hospitals...Sporadic experiments were made in concentration camps like Sachsenhausen near Berlin, and anthropological observations at Dachau." The third phase began in 1942, when the SS and German military took greater control of the experiments. There was a surge in the numbers of experiments, with lethal diseases including malaria and louse-borne typhus administered to thousands of victims. During a fourth phase in 1944-45, explains Dr Weindling, "scientists knew the war was lost but they continued their experiments". (Victims of Nazi anatomists named, Gill, bbc.co.uk, 27 January 2013 )

Experimentation on subhuman beings in psychiatric hospitals was for the purpose of mind control. Mind control is necessary because according to 'elite' scientific socialists and their camp-followers, the masses are not fit to make decisions. Therefore, they called for a secretive shadow government, an 'elite' ruling class in charge of propagandizing and manipulating the subhuman masses:

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. Our invisible governors are, in many cases, unaware of the identity of their fellow members in the inner cabinet.” (Edward Bernays, Propaganda)

Ever since Darwin and his God-hating Western successors succeeded in loading the evolution matrix program onto mankind, most of what we perceive as reality is reminiscent of the malevolent computer programmer in The Matrix film, said David Kupelian in his acclaimed bestseller, "The Marketing of EviL."

In The Matrix humans are born into a mind-controlled slave state which they think of as reality but is actually a powerful computer-generated virtual reality program. They live in constant and deep delusion without realizing it, "their energies sucked out of them to fuel the insatiable needs of their rulers." (p. 171)

After more than fifty years of mind manipulation, the masses for the most part no longer believe in immutable truths and moral absolutes but in open-minded tolerance, be it for abortion, Shariah, sodomy, witchcraft or Satanism. They can only know and believe what is fed to them, see what is right in front of them, and do what they are supposed to do:

“It is the emergence of mass media which makes possible the use of propaganda techniques on a societal scale. The orchestration of press, radio and television to create a continuous, lasting and total environment renders the influence of propaganda virtually unnoticed precisely because it creates a constant environment. Mass media provides the essential link between the individual and the demands of the technological society.” (Jacques Ellul, Mind Control Theories and Techniques used by Mass Media, vigilantcitizen.com)

Human thought is being standardized:

"No group of sociologists can approximate the ad teams in the gathering and processing of exploitable social data. The ad teams have billions to spend annually on research and testing of reactions, and their products are magnificent accumulations of material about the shared experience and feelings of the entire community.” (Marshal McLuhan, The Extensions of Man, ibid)

Whether a movie, advertisement or video game, images, symbols and meanings are strategically placed in order to generate a desired effect:

“It is with knowledge of the human being, his tendencies, his desires, his needs, his psychic mechanisms, his automatisms as well as knowledge of social psychology and analytical psychology that propaganda refines its techniques.” (Propagandes, Jacques Ellul, ibid)

When Americas' propagandizers need more change, meaning that yet another part of the 'elites' agenda be accepted by the public, it is done through desensitization. Whether conditioning children to engage in sodomy or the masses at large to see guns as bad or accept abortion and 'gay' marriage as good, desensitization slowly, gradually and repetitively conditions the masses to accept the required 'change' through movies, TV shows, advertisements, 'cool' music videos, violent rap, decadence festivals, fashions, and the news. After several years of desensitizing the masses to a particular agenda they will simply accept brazen lies, abnormality, and Shariah, for example, with general indifference. This technique originates from psychotherapy:

“The techniques of psychotherapy, widely practiced and accepted as a means of curing psychological disorders, are also methods of controlling people. They can be used systematically to influence attitudes and behavior. Systematic desensitization is a method used to dissolve anxiety so the the patient (public) is no longer troubled by a specific fear, a fear of violence for example... People adapt to frightening situations if they are exposed to them enough”. (Steven Jacobson, Mind Control in the United States, ibid)

Kupelian writes that the most stunning and powerful matrix program of them all is 'evolution.' Whereas Christendom and Protestant America arose on the wings of God's Revelation to man, the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and Original Sin-- the fall from perfection, first by Lucifer then later by Adam and Eve---the evolution program has conditioned people to think of everything as the fruit of a gradual upward growth toward perfection rather than a fall into imperfection. The sweeping acceptance of evolutionary thinking means that neither Lucifer nor man is fallen and perfection in an evolving world lies not in the past but in the future.

As man is the product of evolution which supposedly always results in further upward progress, or improvement, as a consequence said Kupelian,

"...all of man's violent, lustful, and selfish drives are perfectly normal and natural and...advanced. There is no good and evil, no heaven and hell---and man, as a highly evolved monkey, has no sin and no guilt, as these are logical impossibilities from the evolutionary point of view." (Kupelian, p. 174)

The evolution program is the most central and radical lie within the vastly larger matrix program. Its' importance lies in the fact that it persuades men to forget God:

“If I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible what was the main cause of the ruinous revolution that swallowed up some 60 million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: 'Men had forgotten God; that is why all this has happened.' Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Morally degraded, spiritually desolate Americans have been lied to so thoroughly and consistently said Kupelian,

"... that we no longer perceive the meaning of what we see nor understand what we hear." (Kupelian, p. 174)

Having passed through this spiritual, moral and physical holocaust, we can learn three valuable lessons from the Russians if we are willing to listen. First, we can only free ourselves from the power of the lie if we humble ourselves before God in repentance of our sins. Second, we must exercise utmost discrimination with regard to mass entertainment, music, advertising, and so-called 'news.' And third, we must stop worshipping on the altars of Darwin and scientism.

From Russia with love -- wise up, America!

Michael BrescianiRenew America

On Jan 26, 2013 Associated Press writer Mike Stobbe popped a piece on the public, strongly suggesting that we should shame the obese into losing weight. The story was carried by Fox and a few MSM outlets, and some have made jokes about the possibility that Mayor Bloomberg could head the effort to shame the fatties, to supplement his war on 16oz soft drinks.

Breitbart journalist, John Nolte, responded with a scathing rebuke of the AP piece and said, "Under no circumstance would these insufferable elites ever look to "pretty up" society through the "shaming" of drug addicts, alcoholics, sexual degenerates, lazy welfare leeches, or any others who loot the treasury and spread much more human misery than nicotine and ice cream. And anyone who suggested such a thing would immediately be branded a bully by the very same elites now testing the waters to bully-by-shame the overweight."

Wikipedia has outdone all dictionary def's with this description of shame, excerpted from Helen B. Lewis, Shame and guilt in neurosis, published by International University Press.

"Shame is, variously, an affect, emotion, cognition, state, or condition. The roots of the word shame are thought to derive from an older word meaning "to cover"; as such, covering oneself, literally or figuratively, is a natural expression of shame."

This writer's definition of shame in America is far more succinct, I call it – "almost gone."

While shame is sparse, Americans still have a lot of nerve. With Mr. Obama sanctioning everything gay including gay marriages the rest of the world is not buying our indulgence. Even with the high priest of prurient, Dan Savage, skip jumping across the nation's campuses with his message of anything goes in America; the rest of the world could care less.

In his 2013 second inaugural speech Mr. Obama declared that, "we must not mistake absolutism for principle." Obama's speech writer probably thought this unique bit of phraseology would serve as a powerful rhetorical tool to make the presidents new ideas look good to moderns, but in fact, it is a long shot that missed the mark by a mile.

According to almost any worthy philosophy of man, religious precept or bible passage there is no principle to be found at all, without absolutes. Swimming around in gray lukewarm soup may seem like the stuff for today, but Christ saw this day coming when he said:

"I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth." (Rev 3: 15, 16)

Mr. Obama may not be one of those Americans that "cling to their bibles," but perhaps he might want to crack one open from time to time to help his speech writers from sounding absolutist about non-absolutes.

The French Resistance is Still Active

Over 300,000 rallied against same sex marriage in Paris. French President Francois Hollande thought he had a green light for everything gay, but the French it seems, have had quite enough weird, among both Catholic and non-religious alike. It was the largest demonstration in decades and it is something Americans should take note of instead of making photo journals and news-hype on all the gay pride parades taking place in U.S. cities.

In fact same sex marriages are recognized as completely legal in only eleven countries around the world. America may be a world leader, but in this case, we are falling far behind. For many of us, we can only be thankful. We can hope America finds the shame for the very bad idea of same sex marriages before it starts to shame people for being overweight. We would be in danger of becoming the world leader in unbridled hypocrisy; if we are not already.

Russians – "All in one mind"

Much beloved by the Irish folksingers is a song entitled "War Like Lads of Russia." The traditional arrangement of the song has a curious line which describes the way the Russians thought, and is given as the reason they were able to deter the onslaught of Bonaparte's invading armies.

"Those warlike lads of Russia they fought all in one mind – Made Bonaparte to run and leave his troops behind"

The strong resurgence of the Russian Orthodox church since the Berlin wall came down is thought to be responsible in part for the Russian refusal to get swept up in the worldwide gay agenda, but the general consensus of the Russian's is that they want no part of the western decline, American style.

No one applied for a gay marriage license in Moscow in 2012 and in St. Petersburg they are considering a huge fine for any public display of homosexuality including kissing in public. Russia says they do not want their children to be exposed to the gay agenda which they see as closely connected to pedophilia and other dangerous practices.

Americans and of course some Europeans are charging Russia with a return to Medieval thinking, but others believe that promoting the gay life pushes civilization much further back in history, to the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. How well did that work out?

Since the influence of the Orthodox Church and the Bible have been seriously curtailed for a full generation it is hard to blame the homophobic sentiment of the Russian people on these elements alone.

Perhaps it isn't just an ancient mandate against perverted behaviors that is the impetus for the anti-gay sentiments of the Russians, but there is a far simpler answer. Russians can see what is going on in America, the gay parades where children are exposed to perversions and nudity and the endless debate and anger that the gays are now showing anyone who refuses to buckle under their extravagant claims that, after all, they were born that way.

The Prophetic Element

That Russians allowed the wall to fall and the old Soviet establishment only after a generational long experiment with an ideological construct that was doomed from the start. This says at least one thing about them – they don't easily fold to outside pressure. They seem to come to their own realizations quite apart from the influences of the rest of the world.

Like most nations they will not have time to wake up out of their next, well prophesied, mistake. Ezekiel's prophecies tell of the time when Russia will help Muslim countries to invade Israel in one final attempt to wipe that tiny nation off the map. It will miserably fail and it is only a short time after that when many of the rest of last day's prophecies will be completely fulfilled – not a good time for any nation.

Don't Wait for God to Apologize

America seems to have accepted every tenet of the new penchant for political correctness, tolerance and diversity. An entire nation now seems bent on becoming a sensitivity training ground for the plebes of modern thinking, regardless of how far removed from reality they may be.

The several passages of the Bible that clearly state that God condemns the practice of homosexuality cannot be hidden but only refuted. The refutation is weak at best because the only argument is based on a modern frame of thinking. One is to say, God did not say anything about gays, but it is far too late for that. The other is to conclude that he didn't mean what he said.

"God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?" (Nu 23: 19 NIV)

Sentimentality Is Not Real Love

If truth without love is cruelty and love without truth is sentimentality, then where does justice fall in the scheme of God's demands on mankind? In fact just when most of the world has sufficiently dismissed the Bible and fairly much silenced the Christians is when the fulfillment of all prophecy will take place. The world's assurance that the Bible and its adherents were always wrong will suddenly reverse. In that great awakening, the world will see they were universally mistaken. That is called the second coming of Christ. You can count on it.

God's love will persist to the last minute of time. The call to repentance and the invitation to join the blood washed band of the redeemed will be offered to the last moment in time. After that justice will be meted out for all of our perversions and sins, which will include the practice of homosexuality. The blasphemous notion that God made gays that way, will count for nothing and all the sins and the justifications for them will be exposed.

No Queen James version of the bible or modern twisting of scripture will have any chance of changing these much dreaded words.

"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." (Mt 7: 21–23)

Shame may be almost non-existent in America today, but it will soon make a resurgence that for many, will last for all eternity. In the interim what America has decided is not shameful is considered nothing but shame by our old enemy – is the lesson here, all too obvious?

According to writer Robert Bridge the lesson is easy. One line from his article published on Russia's RT website entitled "How the Russian soul can save the American Empire" seems to say it all.

"The problem with America (potentially) "going to Hell" is that this earth-straddling superpower carries enough economic, political and social baggage to drag the rest of humanity to Dante's depths with it."
