Why America Will Fall
http://catholicknight.blogspot.com ^ | September 6, 2012 | The Catholic Knight

"Michael Voris once again hits the nail on the head with this above video. The problem with America, the problem that will soon be its demise, is that it was founded on religious pluralism. That works up to a point, but once that point is reached, it starts to implode on itself.

That's because the inclination of human beings is to eventually take an argument to its final and most natural conclusion. For most people, this happens subconsciously. Their attitudes simply change over time, and more often than not, they are at a loss to explain why. For those of us who think for a living, contemplate and ponder, the reason is plain to see. When you accept the notion that religion really doesn't matter when it comes to important things in life (like who your leaders shall be for example), then it's just a small leap to the mindset that religion really doesn't matter in your own life either."

Very valid points - something I always thought of - but accepted that as long as we were Christian - it didn’t matter - but that was erroneous and division will and up to this point, lead to failures...

All Empires fall, even single religion ones.

That is a HOME RUN, and exactly why we are in the trouble we are today. All people in Leadership must be held to the highest standards, no excuses.

"The one, holy, catholic and apostolic church under Peter ... " statement, though the rest of the treatise was IMO, just fine .. denied the founder and savior of mankind, Jesus.

Many protestant (if not ALL the recognized 'protestant' denominations) too claim only ONE savior and salvation ... by grace through faith .. and that not of (ourselves) .. it is the gift of God.

Otherwise, a very succinct power point presentation.


Thanx, BCW

Great item. But curious about one thing: why publish a blog post about an Internet video published 9 months ago? Not exactly current...

To address the article title, of course America or at least the American Republic and our present global economic empire and Pax Americana will eventually fall. To deny that possibility is to deny every lesson of human history. The question is will it fall in a thousand years or the next few.

Religious pluralism is a foundation stone of the Republic. But it still requires a common adherence to certain principles. Among these are respect for the conscience of each citizen and the choices he or she makes as to the form of worship or lack thereof and that the exercise of those choices does not impede or infringe on others' identical rights. For the most part Catholics, Jews, Protestants of every stripe, and the odd Bahai and Buddhist have been able to thrive together under the umbrella of the Constitution and our common ingrained sense of fairness.

But the twin viruses of Marxism and Islam, neither of which brooks competition, are attacking that compact and we don't know yet if the patent will survive.

The problem with America is the American people who are no longer very “American”.

The absolute beauty of FreeRepublic is the thought processes of so many wonderful minds.

Thanx, katana .. I appreciate your comment.

I tend to sometimes think from a shallow trough.

"Hits the nail on the head"? This is about the dumbest premise I've ever heard of for an argument about the fall of a nation.

Rome fell, Constantinople fell, what is this guy smoking?

Maybe we've discovered the real video that made the Benghazi radical mooselimbs people riot.........

Meh.

” - - - America’s foundation is sand. - - - “

No, the Welfare State that “both” political parties built has been built on sand, the sand of the National Debt.

Currently, the Central, semi-Communist, Federal Government borrows 40 cents on every Federal dollar spent.

Currently, the Federal Welfare State accounts for 40 cents for every Federal dollar spent.

BTW, the baseline support for Obama is always above 40 percent.

Who among us can endure a 40 % loss every year? Oops, I forgot, we already have that rate with the IRS Corporate tax rate.

And yet many empires that had only one religion fell the same way we are.

Untiy of belief has some benefits, but also creates issues.

Let the author be reminded that there is also an inclination of human beings, NOT to take an argument to its final and most natural conclusion.

Even those two threats will FALL.

America was founded on the ideas of individual liberty, limited government and private property rights. It is falling because it has abandoned those principles totally. Property rights? That one is gone, gone, gone. Individual liberty is eroding in the name of the good of the people. And limited government is a faint memory. Religious plurality is a consequence of liberty. Soon the only religion left will be statism.

America needs to make things.

Stop buying things from China.

Make things. If we have a problem, it is because we are training another country to replace us.

Buying the stuff they make, while we pay people to sit around and do nothing.

America make things.

Even now China’s economy is begining to slow down. It too was built as a house of cards.
