Posted on 05/01/2005 8:00:23 PM PDT by CHARLITE
[Cue the Darth Vader theme] ACW II isnt over. 48% of the U.S. did not have an epiphany and conversion experience after President Bushs election. The Liberals will strike back. Their front ranks will be filled with clerical collars. Blue churches like Blue states will be the base for counter-attacks on value voters on many fronts. The blue churches are the Religious Left mainline Protestant churches with declining membership, lapsed, cafeteria Catholics and secular Jews. And all the other Pagan faithful who are spiritual not religious, Wiccan, Vegan, etc.
The Liberals will come back hard, because theyre infuriated that their moral inferiors, Bible-believing Christians and Jews, were the margin of their defeat in the name of morality. They cant believe that it isnt enough to own the Democrats, most of the Judges, colleges and universities, K-12 government schools, the mainstream media, the non-profit foundations, Hollywood and most big corporations. Despite all, the peasants didnt vote the values of the Liberal trinity Race, Class and Gender.
Set out sentries to watch for this gathering attack.
Right Religion. Religion and religious leaders will be applauded if its the right religion. Expect to see a lot more leftist, Liberal clerical collars at Democrat events, in the media and promoted by Hollywood. Likewise, the Black churches still serving on the Democrat plantation will be exalted as paragons of virtue.
Liberals will marginalize Protestant Christian Evangelicals. Especially, Southern Baptists and the Assembly of God. First, Liberals will call them Fundamentalists and liken to the Muslim Fundamentalists. Even though an Islamist will kill Liberals families and cut off their heads, while a Baptist will get on his knees to pray for Liberals and rise to eat fried chicken. Second, the Liberals will point out the many southern accents of Evangelicals. The accusation in the Heartland and the West will be there is exclusiveness akin to racism in saying that all religions are not true and equal its those Southern bigots again.
Capture the Language. Value voters are told they voted for fear. How clever to call resistance to judicial tyranny, that imposes partial-birth abortion, cultural cleansing of Christian heritage and homosexual marriage, fear. Values voting was courageous faith over fears. There will be more attempts, however false, like pro-choice, tolerance, etc., to make Christian speech, metaphors and concepts serve Secular Humanist masters and their Modern Paganism.
More Moral Values. The Liberals may legitimately finesse some Roman Catholics away with an anti-capital punishment value. Also, Liberals may emphasize the Popes resistance to pre-emptive wars like Iraq. But, for the most part, there will be yard sale on moral values. Old ideas will be sold anew. Poverty, the environment, affirmative action, health care, immigration, multi-culturalism, and the aforementioned capital punishment and war and peace issues will all become morality issues. It can convince Americans who are Biblically illiterate.
Exploit Failures. The inevitable failures and setbacks in the next four years during the decades upon decades unfolding of WW IV will be blamed on the Christian Evangelism mindset of President Bush and the NeoCons (read anti-Semitism). Any economic down turn, oil crisis, hardship for unemployed and uninsured illegal immigrants, etc. will be held up as hypocrisy to moral values. The Liberals will mock every tragedy as a testimony to the failure of Christian morality.
Camouflage the Truth. The Liberals wont show themselves as Liberal Puritans. They will hide behind the Sissy Christians of the Apostate Christian congregations. The very persons, who preach Christian morality, follow the teachings of totalitarianism. The line of thinking that flows Diocletian-Rousseau-Voltaire-Hegel-Marx-Darwin-Nietzche-Lenin-Freud-Stalin-Hitler-Mao-Castro-Pol Pot is the path of pagan reasoning, which is Human Secularist Totalitarianism. This Humanist Totalitarianism is a killing cousin to Islamist Totalitarianism.
The Liberal Puritans are the intellectually arrogant and temperamentally authoritarian descendants of Cotton Mather. The stronghold of Liberal Puritanism is witch-burning Massachusetts. The Christian Evangelical majority is the South and West. The Evangelicals inherit the tolerance of Cavaliers, who lost the English Civil War to the Puritans, and the fierce independence and personal, Bible-based faith of the Scot-Irish, Scot, and French Huguenot Calvinists.
The final irony is how Christian Evangelicals are more motivated by love. Liberal Puritans cant tell the difference between our passion and their hate because their words are the overflow of their hearts. Who will burn a dissenter at the stake? The Blue churches who say Biblical Christian speech is hate speech and a crime? Or, Red churches who send missionaries, who are martyred regularly, to Muslim countries?

Excellent. I think this is exactly what we'll see.
The religious left is one of the most obnoxious and dangerous parts of this unholy alliance. We need to trash them as much as possible.
Sounds like a new opportunity to combat heresy.
Bring it on.
They've been attacking Bible believing churches for years.
They have also been "modernizing" liberal protestant churches at the same time.
Despite their best efforts, the "modern" churches keep failing and closing, and the fundamentalist ones keep growing in membership and grace.
Many of the liberal ones are just living off donations left years ago. They can't support themselves. I always think of the Godly Methodists who left their estates to the church to do God's work- they would cry if they could see what their churches have become.
With all the resources of the puppet masters, the MSM and hell at their disposal.
They will treat them like Southern Baptist.
(Except Dingy Harry Reid)
He is a @#$%&*** no matter what his religeon.
(LDS have bums also, and we recognize that.)
The left will have a campaign to say real Christians are Marxists and that Christ was a marxist.
I think LDS will be marginalized and attacked.
Some of the things that have impressed me about this sect are:
I'm sure you'll agree that this group has an impressive record of tolerance and diversity that those of us who grew up being exposed to Western values could learn from. From what I've discovered, I believe I would like to learn more about this strange sect called Fundamentalist Christianity.
Using the language is important and the left excels with linguistic contortions.
Branding Catholics liberals and conservatives is one of the left's tricks. I prefer faithful to the Magisterium or unfaithful to it.
