Cultural Theft and Ethnic Cleansing are Both cultural Marxism--and the beat goes on in New Orleans

by Al Benson Jr.

By now anyone that reads anything but the comic strip in the "newspaper" (often more truth there than anywhere else) has read about the Cultural Theft now being attempted in New Orleans. It is part of the anti-Confederate psy ops campaign that started last June. The Cultural Theft/Ethnic Cleansing/cultural Marxist cadre had  been somewhat quiet for awhile  and many of us figured that we were in the midst of that quiet period between their initial assault and the time when they had hoped we'd go back to sleep so they could clobber us with their second offensive. It seems that the second offensive has now arrived, at least in New Orleans ( a "Christmas" gift for the unwary). Either that or the mayor there is off schedule.

I received some interesting commentary from a man in Alabama yesterday that so well fits this situation. He wrote: "When ISIS finds a historical monument or statue that does not fit their narrative they destroy it. Congratulations New Orleans, you fit in well with ISIS in this category." Problem is, he's right on the money! When the culture thieves and ethnic cleansers (who are all cultural Marxists) find something that does not fit into their wished-for agenda then it is slated for destruction. It must be so otherwise their agenda could not go forward and America could not continue to be "fundamentally transformed."

A recent column on www.thenewsadvocate.com  by Jeff Adelson noted: "Mayor Mitch Landrieu on Thursday (12/17) signed into law a measure allowing for the removal of four monuments to Confederate leaders and a Reconstruction-era white uprising, and he suggested that other controversial memorials in the city may be rethought as well. Having called in June for the monuments to come down in the wake of a shooting that left nine people dead in a South Carolina church at the hands of a white supremacist, Landrieu spent all summer and fall largely on the sidelines, at least publicly, of a growing controversy over the proposal." I guess that was the cooling off period to get everybody to go back to sleep.

Some might be tempted to ask what the shooting of folks in South Carolina had to do with Confederate statues  in Louisiana, but they'd probably be shouted down in today's politically charged climate. You aren't supposed to ask that question. What you are supposed to do is to respond to the emotional hot button concept that anything Confederate is automatically evil and learn to do the goose-step so you can march in a scripted "spontaneous" demonstration somewhere to demand the removal of anything and everything Confederate from anyplace and everyplace.

The New Orleans City Council voted to cave in to cultural Marxism on this issue by a 6-1 margin and the mayor can't wait to get the wrecking crews out to get the monuments down and out of public sight--after all they have been the cause of so much misery for so many generations that people walking by them automatically come down with a case of the blind staggers or whatever. It sounds suspiciously like the old "I'm offended" game carried to a whole new level. And remember, this mayor is related to Mary (I'm for Obamacare) Landrieu who recently lost her seat in the US Senate, mostly because of Obamacare and her ultra-liberal position on just about everything.

When the lady on the city council who voted against this dared to disagree with the mayor (something that can be dangerous, politically and otherwise, in many cities) he responded to her with a politically correct retort of the kind that is supposed to silence the opposition once and for all. He said: "I didn't create this diversion, nor did I create the tension. You may be knowledgeable of the fact that actually slavery did." Ahhh, there's the statement you are not supposed to be able to argue against--it's the fault of slavery, and therefore, it's the white man's fault,so just shut up and sit down. Suffice it to say that slavery did not create this tension--cultural Marxists created this present tension for the purpose of furthering their agenda of Cultural Theft against the South--and they have fomented and nurtured this presumed tension for generations now until some situation could be brought forth to bring it to fruition. This clown in South Carolina, supposedly with the Confederate flag in his hand, seems to be that situation.

And the mayor has issued the not-so-subtle warning that he might not be finished yet. Street names could be changed--naturally to be named after "civil rights" leaders.  If that round of ethnic cleansing manages to go forward then we may have another round where they start naming things after outright socialists or Marxists. That might take a little while, so stay tuned.

I know I sound like a broken record on this issue, but until folks start, in sufficient numbers, to stand up and protest all this, it will continue and the culture, history, faith and heritage they steal from you will also be stolen from your children and grandchildren. Think about that.

The Shootings Will Continue Until Public's Attitude on Gun Control/Confiscation Changes

by Al Benson Jr.

Another shooting, this time in California, and according to the World Net Daily article I read there are 14 dead and another 14 wounded. Our Marxist president has, naturally called for more gun control and says such shootings are not normal. He's right there. They are not normal--but they will continue until the American public appears to see things his way and caves in to more, and eventually complete gun control/confiscation because that's what it's all about.

The minute Congress is willing to give the president the prerogative to dismantle the Second Amendment the shootings will cease, the media will never mention them again and, supposedly, we will have happiness and "peace" in Amerika--Marxist peace" which is really nothing more than the absence of resistant to the president and his Marxist policies.

This is what it's really all about, folks--the old "pressure from above and pressure from below" game that the Marxists have been playing on us for years and they keep on doing it successfully because we never seem to get it. Maybe we'll get it once the guns are confiscated (because that's what it's really all about) and no one can defend themselves from a tyrannical government.

The president has fairly howled in recent weeks about how gun control is going to be one of his main priorities next year and you better believe  him because he means it. In this instance he is telling us the truth--if he can find some way to accomplish it he will disarm the public before he leaves office. We had all better stay on our congress critter's cases in this coming year because the president (and his handlers) will pressure them to enact some kind of gun control/confiscation measure before he leaves office and what he starts in this area then Hillary or whoever the Establishment puts into the White (Red) House will finish.

I would recommend that folks get in touch with the Gun Owners of America, the one no compromise anti-gun control group out there, and find ways to support their efforts, whether through joining up or contributing or both. Don't be naive enough to think "it can't happen here." It's happening! The question is--what are we willing to do to combat it?

Update: Guess what, now we find out that two of the shooters, (naturally both dead) were what has been termed "radicalized Muslims." That being the case I seriously doubt that they would have obeyed all those new gun restrictions that Obama wants to impose on honest citizens.It also shows that his misplaced gun control efforts are nothing but a sham to enable him to disarm the American public. Well, many of us knew that from the beginning, and so did he despite all his platitudes about not being after our guns. That's exactly what he was and is after so let's don't be gulled by his bovine fertilizer.

Next Update:  The gun grabbers have wasted no time. Already today there was a move in the Senate to try to expand background checks on those buying guns at gun shows and through intrastate internet transactions. Senate Democrats (socialists) tried to push this but there was enough Republican opposition for the present to stall any action, but I don't doubt there are lots of Republicans that would dearly love to push it along with their Democratic brethren, because, at heart, they really believe in what Obama stands for and his agenda no matter how much they deny it.

The news release I read said "The FBI is trying to determine whether a couple suspected of the shootings at a workplace in Southern California on Wednesday had links to Islamic militant groups." How much do you want to bet this will turn out to be yet another hackneyed cases of "workplace" violence? That way the media can take the heat off whatever Islamic terrorists might be involved and just try to get Congress to go along with more gun control/confiscation, because that's what this is really all about.

Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal said: "Congress is complicit in these mass murders when it fails to act. That has to be the biggest pile of fertilizer since the Oklahoma City bombings back in the 90s. Some Islamic terrorists kill a batch of people and it's the Congress' fault because they failed to enact gun confiscation measures! Give me a break! However, with recent shootings in Paris, Colorado and now in California the socialists in Congress are fervently praying (to whatever god they believe in) that the public will suddenly repent of its support for the Second Amendment and turn to the instant panacea of fedeal gun control/confiscation. A recent poll also noted that 63% of those polled believed that gun violence can often be blamed on mental health problems while only 23% felt that it was due to inadequate gun control.

With those kinds of statistics it looks as if the shootings will continue...

Ahh, Those Refugees--Just let them all in, right? Wrong!

by Al Benson Jr.
Supposedly, the Syrian "refugee crisis" has gotten to the point where hundreds of thousands of refugees are now fleeing the country (you wonder if there;s anyone left there) and those that can't find a comfortable home in Europe must all be admitted to the US in the name of love and humanity.  The current regime in Sodom on the Potomac says so and so the beneficent (to Muslims) dictator in the White House wants to start moving as many of them as possible into our various states. A couple state governors welcome this. Several do not. When several state governors have complained about this the "president" has blithely informed them that he can basically put aliens and foreigners where he wants them and the state governors don't have diddly to say about it. I tell you, folks, that's real "democracy" in action, and I'm not kidding. That's how democracy works--it always ends up in dictatorship of some form.

But not to worry--the officials in Sodom, er, sorry, I meant Washington, have informed us that all refugees will be thoroughly vetted and so we will only get the cream of the crop--no terrorists in this bunch--just the best shots!  You will have to pardon me if I think that all this federal assurance is BF (bovine fertilizer). This regime has lied to us so often about so much why should we believe anything they tell us. All I can say is that their "transparency" is slipping just a bit like their halos.

I recently read an article by Shawn Meyer, a small-town pastor in the Midwest. He had some comments worth considering, especially for Christians who are tempted to buy just anything the government tells them because, after all "your government wouldn't lie to you." Pastor Meyer noted that: "For most of our history, Christianity was embraced by men and women who applied wisdom to love.  They were realists who understood the world in which they lived and naturally processed events  in light of the ideologies that drove them. Christianity wasn't a philosophical refuge to spiritual utopians...'Turning the other cheek, doing unto others, and loving your enemies'  represented general principles for personal relationships. Applying a hermeneutic of common sense and with Jesus' intentions in mind, these principles were understood to have little or nothing to do with foreign policy or national security." Such understanding seems almost totally lacking today in many instances, especially in the Church.

Pastor Meyer noted that Christians want to help those who are truly in need and that we should have a place in our hearts for refugees, especially for the women and children and he stated that the question isn't  whether we should help but how.  And he asked, as he should, "How do we distinguish between real refugees and ISIS operatives posing as refugees? How do we help some without jeopardizing others? I submit the administration's current policy is highly dubious and, while apparently loving toward those claiming to be refugees, will, WILL result in the deaths of innocent American men, women, and children. A staff person for my Senator assured me this week 'the Senator supports measures to vet all refugees prior to accepting them'." Most Christians in our lack-of-discernment day would buy that and not even think to go any further. Pastor Meyer, wisely, didn't buy it.  He said: "I couldn't hide my contempt for such naivet'e. Assad isn't giving us their background files. There are millions of Mohammedans in Syria. All mention of vetting is pure stupidity. We are talking about the same people who renewed the visas  of the 9/11 hijackers months after the attacks. There is no way to vet these people." Interestingly, in a moment of candor, the person Pastor Meyer talked to on the phone, admitted that. But the regime will go through the motions anyway because that will fool and bemuse most of the public--Christians who should know better included.

Pastor Meyer made several other cogent comments but I can't cover them all here. And to conclude his comments he said: "To acquiesce to Islam and welcome their Trojan horses into our streets is not only the opposite of wisdom, it is truly the opposite of love. It is to increase their confidence in a damning theology. It is to harden them in their ways. If we set aside sentimentalism and apply wisdom to love, we can help those in genuine need while protecting our children and our homeland.  Pastor Meyer's commentary appeared on http://clashdaily.com 

I have no doubt that the current regime doesn't want the public to consider any of this--just open the flood gates and let the refugees (and the terrorists) come streaming in, and if there ends up being so many of them that our culture becomes more Muslim than Christian, well, ain't that a pity?  But, then, isn't that the real name of the game?

In the Old Testament, Israel was enjoined to welcome foreigners and not to oppress them.In return those foreigners were to do something that is a dirty word today--ASSIMILATE!  They were to live, as long as they were in Israel, by Israel's laws (no Sharia law in Israel) and they were not to bring in and set up their pagan temples. If they were uncomfortable with Israel's law system they needed to move on.  Coming into someone else's country and expecting them to embrace your culture, and getting :offended" if they won't was, and is, an act of supreme ingratitude and quite frankly, in this country today, we should refuse to put up with it. I realize that the unwritten law in this country today is "everyone gets a free pass except white Christians"  and some of us white Christians are getting just a might fed up with it. Helping those truly in need is one thing. Surrendering your faith and culture so the terrorists won't be "offended" isn't part of the game.

Houston Voters Didn't Want Guys In the Gal's Bathroom

by Al Benson Jr.

The article on www.bbc.com  stated: "Houston's mayoral election has turned into a national battleground for LGBT rights  after a non-discrimination ordinance was added to the ballot. The city is the fourth largest city in the US and the biggest not to have such an ordinance." Does that mean that most other cities in this country of comparable size to Houston already sport such an ordinance? That's something most people probably have not even thought about or been aware of.

Thankfully, in Houston, conservative Christian pastors and other conservatives took a stand against this attempted perversion in their city and it was defeated by something like 60-40% The original ordinance was passed last year. I assume either the mayor, who is an open lesbian, either did it by decree, the same way our current resident in the White (Red) House tries to do these things, or the city council passed it as an ordinance. If the city council passed it the good citizens of Houston might want to think about electing a new city council in the next election. However it was done, a court said it either had to be placed on a ballot or repealed. At least that gave voters a fighting chance.

The mayor who is strongly in favor of this is the same mayor who sought last year to censor the sermons of several Houston pastors to make sure they hadn't said anything about sexual perversion she didn't like. Legally she wasn't able to do that--yet--but she sure gave it the old college try.

That might be a subtle warning to Christians as to what we can expect not too far down the line. The collectivist administration in Washington supports this sort of thing and goes out of their way to promote it. Their agenda is to, as completely as possible, dismantle as much of our Christian culture as we let them get away with as they work to move this country down the road toward a One World socialist regime.

Up to now, most Christians haven't bothered to get involved too much--lots easier for us if we just sit back and "let the Lord do it all so I don't have to do anything"--and that's one major problem today with the Church. We have become fat, happy and complacent and it's just too much of an effort for us to do much of anything anymore--especially if it might "offend" anyone or be perceived as "negative." We have been conditioned to avoid these like the plague. And it's so much easier just to sit and do nothing. It doesn't begin to occur to us that we have allowed ourselves to be placed in bondage to Political Correctness (Cultural Marxism).

Seeing that this mayor in Houston is such an open lesbian, I wonder where the Christians were when she ran for office. Had they  been awake she never should have gotten where she is.

Naturally the supporters of this "boys in the girls' bathroom" bill were disappointed that it lost. Some of them spent big bucks pushing it. You have to wonder why. But don't worry. They will be back again somewhere down the line. One thing you learn about those people after you've been around awhile is that they never quit--and I mean never! The Christians and other good folks in Houston won this one, but they can't just go home and sit on their laurels. They've won one battle, not the war. They will have to be "eternally vigilant" because this will come up again and if they fail to watch for it they will get caught the next time.

Some Flags Are "More Equal" Than Others

by Al Benson Jr.

I recall how, that after the June shootings in Charleston, there were pages and pages on the Internet that contained images of Dylan Roof sitting there with that goofy look on his face and the Confederate flag in his hand, the picture that some have said was photoshopped. However, that situation didn't accomplish quite everything it was supposed to and there has, thankfully, been some backlash and so, unfortunately, the psy ops agenda with shootings at schools and in other gun free zones seems to be increasing. Hardly a week goes by that you don't hear about one or two somewhere--and always in those gun free zones.

It seems that every time Comrade Obama goes on one of his gun control/confiscation tangents there has to be another batch of school shootings to give him enough leverage to keep talking about how horrible guns are and about how much better off we'd all be if only the government had them. He doesn't say it in quite those words but that's what it all amounts to. The media almost never questions why passing more gun control laws concerning areas that guns are already illegal in will do any good. It won't. But, you see, that doesn't matter, because in the final analysis, gun confiscation, not safety, is the real agenda--and the media pundits realize that. Their job is to make sure you don't.

Some of the good folks in Roseburg, Oregon have figured that out when they got out and protested Obama's appearance in their town after the recent shootings at their community college. They knew why he was there, the real reason, and they basically told him to go home and sharpen up his golf game. The media said there were a couple hundred protesters. Knowing how the media plays the numbers game from personal experience at events I've been at, I'd be willing to bet there were at least twice that many and probably more.

So now the recent shootings in Northern Arizona have given the gun control fanatics a new lease on life, but this event also shows the manner in which the Cultural Genocide folks ply their trade.  They make some flags and symbols "more equal" than others to use George Orwell's terminology. 

As I said earlier, after the Charleston shootings the Internet was simply crawling with images of Roof and his Confederate flag, as well as with articles about how truly evil Confederate flags were and how we need to abandon them wholesale and drive a stake into the heart of Southern culture that no one will ever be able to pull out!

Now there are article on the Internet, and no doubt other places, about Steven Jones and his shooting of four people in Flagstaff, Arizona. There are also pictures, not too many naturally, of Steven Jones with a United States flag that looks like its stuck on the back of his hat. It's about the same size as the Confederate flag that Dylan Roof was supposedly holding. But I notice there doesn't seem to be all that much media commentary about the US flag that seems to be part of Jones' getup.

Just out of curiousity, I did a Google search "picture of shooter in Northern Arizona posing with American flag." On the first two pages of the articles I checked out there were two articles each about Dylan Roof with his Confederate flag and on the third page was yet another. What, pray tell, did these have to do with this shooter in Northern Arizona? It seems that our attention is still supposed to be directed at Dylan Roof and his Confederate flag even more so than to this guy with the US flag.

It seems that the media is not all that anxious to talk about Jones and his US flag. One article I read on www.latimes.com  said: "One Instagram photo from 13 weeks ago showed Jones wearing 'American flag attire' and holding a shotgun over his shoulder."  That's the only mention of anything about flags in the entire article.  When we read articles about Dylan Roof they were shoving the "evil" Confederate flag down our throats, but now, with Jones, the US flag deserves barely a line. Notice a pattern here?

In my Internet search I was referenced to a New York Times  article that was supposed to have a picture of Jones with the US flag. However, when I clicked onto the link, and I did it more than once, all I got was a message that said this picture "is not available." If they linked to it for this article, why is it "no longer available?"

I finally did locate a picture of Jones with his US flag on something called freakoutnation.com  and even on that I was treated to yet more pictures of Roof and his Confederate flag while getting only one picture of Jones with his US flag.

So I have a couple questions. If the Confederate flag is evil because of a picture of Roof holding it after he has allegedly shot nine people, then doesn't that make the US flag also evil because it is on the hat of Steven Jones who has also, allegedly just shot four people? And why so much fuss over Roof's Confederate flag while only a bare mention of Jones' US flag?

Truly, these two tragic shootings do point to the fact that there is an agenda out there to culturally destroy the South and its heritage while not being overly concerned about the identical situation in another part of the country except to use it as fodder for the anti-gunners' agenda.

Why is one flag splashed all over the media as being totally evil, while the other one, in an identical situation barely rates a mention? Folks, stop and think about it.  Between Obama's gun confiscation game and the Cultural Genocide being practiced on us, especially here in the South,  we've been had. Sadly, most of us don't have the sense to realize that yet.

If Boehner Was Obama-Lite then McCarthy is Boehner-Lite

by Al Benson Jr.

Earlier this week I did an article for my other blog spot http://revisedhistory.wordpress.com about the resignation of John Boehner as Speaker of the House. This was something many conservatives had been working for and I am sure many viewed it as a significant conservative victory.

You might want to rethink that.

While Boehner was no loss, what ends up replacing him will probably not be any gain but only the preservation of the Establishment status quo with a different name. That's the plan. So they suckered the conservatives when they got rid of Boehner and they plan to replace him with someone that will do exactly what he would have done and many conservatives will think they won a tremendous victory with Boehner gone.

On her web site, www.debbieschlussel.com  Debbie Schlussel stated on September 25th that: "Those applauding John Boehner's resignation beware. Replacement Kevin McCarthy is Boehner minus the fake tan and the real tears." She also stated: "Beware, John Boehner's replacement Kevin McCarthy is pro-amnesty pal of Facebook Zuckerberg, is a complete RINO just like Boehner."

Debbie also noted: "Last year, McCarthy's pro-amnesty statements were front and center in a Fwd. Us pro-amnesty video add...The cheers from the right about Boehner remind me of the cheers when the GOP retook both the House and the Senate a couple years ago. I told you then that nothing would change because the respective houses of Congress would be run by Boehner and Mitch McConman. And I was right. Well, I have news for you again. Kevin McCarthy will be a seamless transition from Boehner. He's the same guy minus the orange-y skin tint." Over his time in Congress he has only voted conservative 53% of the time. So how is this any better than Boehner? It isn't, but we are all supposed to be conned into thinking this is a major improvement.

It has been suggested by the Gun Owners of America that people contact  their members of Congress and demand that they vote for a speaker that will "Defund any and all of Obama's anti-gun Executive Orders and refuse to allow any votes on any of Obama's anti-gun agenda." And while we are at it lets let them know that we do not want another Boehner clone to replace him. If that's what you end up with what have you gained? Yet I understand that's the game plan. If the Ruling Establishment can't stick it to us with Tweedle-dum then they will stick it to us with Tweedle dee. And they need to know we are wise to the game. And this is a two-party con game because both parties are controlled by the same people. Let us never forget that.

Refugee Doublemindedness?

by Al Benson Jr.

It seems that the current Syrian "refugee" crisis has produced a strangely doubleminded attitude in both Europe and this country.

For months now we have been hearing about how Muslim immigrants have been gaining strength in Europe and how Europeans have finally begun to get concerned about this unassimilable group in their midst.It almost seems as if Muslims are literally taking over in some European cities as the native populations cringe in fear.

And we definitely  had and have a problem with illegal immigrants at our Southern border, some of whom are from locales more closely akin to Cairo or Baghdad than to Mexico City.

Just about the time people in this country are getting fed up with illegals overwhelming our Southern border and the Europeans are finally beginning to awaken to the Muslim threat in their countries, along comes this Syrian "refugee" problem and all of a sudden, thousands need to leave Syria, immediately if not sooner, and "resettle" in Europe--and now the Europeans are welcoming them with open arms!  Knowing the way the current rogue regime in Washington operates can there be any doubt that it will not be overly long before the invitation to the "refugees" to come here will be extended by Washington, at least officially. Unofficially it has probably already been planned out to bring as many here as the traffic will bear. Even some of the Republican presidential candidates are saying we need to open the doors to them. And these guys are conservatives?

Some are saying that among the refugees are many ISIS militants who are not really refugees at all, but terrorists. Not everyone agrees with this, but you have to admit it is a definite possibility. After all, what better way to get terrorists into your country than to admit them as "refugees?" Tyler Durden, writing on www.zerohedge.com  has commented on this and said: "...Because just like the US Patriot Act which allowed a massive expansion of the US government apparatus while obliterating civil and privacy rights...confirmed a decade later by Edward Snowden, was a regulation in search of a terrorist event, so Europe's next superstate expansion will require a comparable anti-terrorism ;'rush' in which the population voluntarily hands Europe's supra-government even more rights to centrally plan as it sees fit."  Durden feels it's only a matter of time before terrorists are "discovered" among the refugees and this will lead to an expansion of Europe's version of our Patriot Act. He could have a point. I wouldn't put it past the scions of big government, whether here or in Europe, to pull such a stunt.

Supposedly most of these refugees are fleeing the havoc of a civil war in Syria--and neither side in that war is wearing any halos.

However, knowing the One World Government mindset and how it works it wouldn't surprise me if they played both ends against the middle--the middle being the middle class. Recently an article on www.infowars.com  noted that the United Nations figures show that 72% of these "refugees" are men, with only 13% being women and 15% being children. The infowars article stated: "Many of these people have nothing whatsoever to do with the Syrian refugee crisis. Once they reach the safety of countries that refuse to shower them with free cash, they head straight for welfare havens like Sweden and Germany." If 72% of these "refugees" are men it sure doesn't sound like a family affair to me. And infowars noted: "Why is the media ordering us to accept these people in the name of 'feelings' and humanitarianism when most of them aren't even fleeing war, they're fleeing to a higher standard of living--which will be funded by European taxpayers." Sound familiar? I wonder how many of these folks have any sort of documentation to even prove they are Syrians. Fifty per cent, ninety per cent?

The more you look at this situation the more it starts to look like the classic Marxist "pressure from above and pressure from below" approach, where the Ruling Elite (the CFR, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderbergers or whoever) create a situation that will allow them to grab more power than they presently have (eventually they want it all) while looking like they have no control over the situation.  Then, the people in the middle (the middle class) get squeezed by the "refugees" and by some of the atrocities they commit and they go to the government to get some relief--and the government will gladly give it--at the price of more regulations and the loss of more liberties, which was the real name of the game to begin with. This game works the same in Europe as it does in this country, and don't kid yourselves--the game will soon be played on us here, with some of the "conservative" Republicans already calling for more "humanitarian" aid. This pathetic Republican Congress might as well rename itself the "Cheerleaders for Obama" section because they are little more than that

It seems that almost any excuse will do to import more people with cultures alien to our own so they can arrive here and, intentionally or not, begin to dilute our culture into something we will not even recognize in a decade or two. And it is working. i can no longer identify what we now have as the country I grew up in.

As long as we continue to elect Marxists and other One World mentalities to high offices this is what we will get. It's long past time the voting public woke up and started checking out what runs for political offices nowadays. With the Internet it can now be done. For far too long we have voted for someone mindlessly because they belong to the right ethnic group or have the right skin color, or belong to the right party. Oh I realize that having to do some research on these candidates will cut into your Tuesday night poker sessions or your reality show time--but, what these people are doing to you just may cut into the liberties remaining for you and your children. Think about that.

The Real Sodomite Agenda--It sounds somewhat Marxist

by Al Benson Jr.

To anyone with a brain it has to be apparent that the Christian faith and biblical truth are under attack today as never before in our history. Unfortunately, most of the Church is sleeping through this and under no circumstances does it wish to be disturbed. Ignorance is bliss has, it would seem, been replaced by "complacency is bliss."

There was a recent article on www.massresistance.org  that outlined much of the sodomite agenda for the near future and it didn't all have to do with just "gay" marriages. That was the foot in the door, the camel's nose in the tent. An article in the leftist Nation was cited for this information.

The massresistance article said: "The Nation article, "What's next for the LGBT movement" quotes four high-profile LGBT activists who reveal that 'gay marriage' was never their final goal.  The LGBT will not be stopping to rest, they say. Their plan is to delegitimize and crush all opposition to their agenda everywhere in America--particularly in the churches--no matter how small." So those naive Christians who think this will all just go away if they are "nice" to the sodomites have got a rude awakening coming. These people are trying to destroy your churches and your faith, folks, and you've got to wake up to that fact. Oh, I realize that will take some effort. Even though the Lord is in control of it all, you will still have to get out and DO something, unpleasant as that thought is.

According to the massresistance article this is their plan:
Dis-establish marriage--"Gay marriage was simply a stepping stone. Their actual goal is that there be no formal marriage rules at all. This means group marriages are next, then incestuous marriages, and even later marriages to minors. It would simply be up to the people directly involved to decide." And the next point on their agenda is to pass strong LGBT "non-discrimination" laws all over the country. It is duly noted that: "These are the laws that force bakers to bake 'gay marriage' cakes or face huge punishments.  Such laws would also force schools to include LGBT indoctrination.  Most states still do not have the onerous laws the LGBT movement demands. The activists refer to those states (mostly in the South and Midwest) as 'zones without rights' in their propaganda."

And next on their agenda is the banning of all "religious liberty" laws. "They consider religious liberty to be a dangerous ploy to 'undermine all civil rights laws'  that must be stopped at all costs. All people must be forced to follow the LGBT agenda, with no exceptions. And to aid them in doing this they have to "Demonize pro-family conservatives and silence all dissent.  They plan to direct massive amounts of funds to 'expose and defeat the right wing' across America."

And finally, they plan a radical political agenda. "They plan to leverage their power to support Marxist economic policies, the right to 'early term abortion' and similar policies." So all this is really where they are headed and where they will take the country, with the blessing of the Ruling Establishment, unless Christians wake up and smell the coffee. Interestingly, Karl Marx, in the Communist Manifesto plainly stated: "But Communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality, instead of constituting them on a new basis; it therefore acts in contradiction to all past historical experience."

Well, not quite, Karl. What you have proposed here is not really "new." It goes all the way back to the Book of Genesis in the Bible, chapter 3, where the serpent beguiles man by telling him that if he just eats the forbidden fruit he shall be "as gods, knowing good and evil." That's the real beginning for Communism and those of its adherents that do not repent of it--a "gift" from the serpent. And man, today, still has not learned. He still seeks to be "as God" and makes his own rules apart from God's Law. For this our country is under severe judgment--and most of the church sleeps on! And the LGBT crowd pushes their blatant anti-Christian agenda and will continue to push it until the Church stands up and says NO! Unfortunately, we are not ready to do that yet. We want to try "being nice" one more time, even though it won't ever work, because it's so much easier than standing up and fighting for what we should be.

This good lady in Kentucky sits in jail because she stood up and said NO to evil. Will the Church support her? I hope she doesn't have to hold her breath waiting to find out.

"Searching For Lincoln"

by Al Benson Jr.

A lady back east sent me a copy of an excellent documentary DVD on the Abraham Lincoln the "history" book don't tell us about. It arrived here yesterday. Last evening (Aug 31) I watched it. Usually I don't spend lots of time watching DVDs. I am busy enough that I never seem to quite get around to them. Maybe once every six months or so I get to one, but no more often than that.

This one, though, was worth taking the time to watch, and for those that would like to be aware of the Lincoln the "history" books don't bother to inform us about I would recommend it.

It goes into Lincoln's entire life, his views on race (which were "racist"), his views on secession (he was right in 1848 but not in 1860) and that was only because he put forth those views just before the start of the 1848 socialist revolts in Europe.He had odd views on the Constitution and states' rights (he thought the Union was formed before the States). He wasn't even close to accurate and his far out views cost the country over 600,000 lives. But he changed the system of government (and that's what it was really all about). Obviously the folks that put all this together did lots of homework. It should be required viewing in every history class in the country.

If you would like more information you can go to the website www.searchingforlincoln.com  and check it out. The information I received said folks "...can rent it for a few dollars (to be sure they want it, obviously) and then download it for about $20. After that they can burn it to a DVD if they wish to have a hard copy. They can purchase a hard copy from the website."

The lady that sent it to me also noted, for those interested in purchasing the DVD, "If it is a group purchase--an SCV or UDC chapter, say, or your relatives--do it through me; there is a discount for multiple copies.  I think the price goes from around $20 to $15 per DVD." Her name is Valerie Protopapas and you can contact her at 14 Peartree Lane, Huntington Station, New York 11746

The DVD was produced by Darlin Productions.

Aborted Babies Kept Alive So Organs Could Be Harvested

by Al Benson Jr.

An article on www.washingtontimes.com  for August 19th carried a headline that stated: Planned Parenthood kept aborted babies alive to harvest organs, ex-technician says. The article was written by Cheryl Wetzstein. In the article she stated: "In an undercover video released Wednesday, a former technician for a tissue-harvesting company details how an aborted baby was kept alive so that its heart could be harvested at a California Planned Parenthood facility, raising more legal questions about the group's practices."

The article also said: "...a former blood and tissue procurement technician for the biotech startup StemExpress also said she was asked to harvest an intact brain from the late-term, male fetus whose heart was still beating after the abortion."

So this is what goes on in this country under the fabled euphemism of providing for "women's health." The people doing this stuff are among those who cry out for "compassion" for poor women and for other "causes" most of which, if you do some homework, seem to have originated on the left.

I grew up hearing about all the atrocities Hitler committed in Germany when the Nazis were in power. You didn't hear much about Communist atrocities which were numerically worse than anything Hitler did because it wasn't, and isn't politically correct to discuss them. After all, we are all supposed to believe that the Communists and other assorted Leftists are really compassionate and loving people whose only problem is that they have a slightly different viewpoint than we do and so we need to sit and dialogue with them. For some strange reason they don't take that same position with Hitler. Don't misunderstand me here--I have no use for either Hitler and the Nazis or the Communists. Both are variants of Leftist ideology. Both are anti-Christian.

But if we end up sanctioning what Planned Parenthood is doing to these unborn babies then we better get down on our knees and apologize to Hitler because what we are allowing in this country is every bit as bad as what he did in Nazi Germany.

It seems that, in this country, many churches are so busy ordaining sodomite bishops and ministers that they are way too busy to pay attention to what Planned Parenthood has been doing, probably for decades now. The churches in this country should be screaming to Heaven over what goes on in these abortion mills, but most of them are much too comfortable to be bothered. Now that these  videos have been released and the public is beginning to find out what Planned Parenthood is really doing, they don't have nearly as much excuse for keeping quiet.

Some churches around the country have taken a strong anti-abortion stand over the years--but what about the rest??? What about the majority? They can't claim total ignorance anymore so what will they do? That's the sixty-four dollar question.

If we can look at what Planned Parenthood is doing with these unborn babies and not admit that this is, indeed, a new level of barbarity, then maybe this country has gone past the point of no return. The evolutionists tell us that man is "progressing" that he is becoming more and more civilized. Actually, what we have today is not primitive barbarity, it is high-tech barbarity. This is the kind of thing this country needs to repent of and to stop, even if the federal government does want it to continue. And the fact that they do tells you something about the federal government. Folks, wake up and smell the coffee--if you can even bear to drink it after finding out what they are doing to these poor unborn children!

Planned Parenthood and Federal Threats

by Al Benson Jr.

It's not unusual to see the federal government doing what it does best, threatening the states if they refuse to comply with federal edicts. This is, after all, what the centralizers and collectivists in Washington, the District of Corruption, live for. It makes their day if they can find some way, somehow, to stomp on states rights today.

Thus, when two states, Louisiana and Alabama, have sought to defund Planned Parenthood, this is something the feds can't afford to let pass. Notice these two states are both in the South.

In an article on www.reuters.com for August 12th it was stated that: The U.S. government has warned states moving to defund women's health group Planned Parenthood that they may be in conflict with federal law, officials said Wednesday." The article reiterated  this same line a couple paragraphs later with commentary from the Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS). Reuters noted that "The agency warned those two states that their plans to terminate Medicaid provider agreements with Planned Parenthood may illegally restrict beneficiary access to services, the spokesman said in a statement." In other words, you may be in violation of federal statutes that allow the murder of unborn babies if you restrict the "rights" of mothers to use this group to help them murder their unborn children.

Gary North, in an article on lewrockwell.com for August 19th noted that the operative word in use here is may. You may be in violation of some federal statute, but if you may, there is also a 50-50 chance that you may not. So this is a (at this point) thinly veiled threat by the Washington bureaucrats to the states that they better not try this. After all when it comes to murdering babies the federal government should have the final say and heaven help those states that really don't want to go along.

Now I hate to sound like a rabble-rouser, but I would dearly love to see another batch of states decide that they had had enough of Planned Parenthood's policy of murdering babies and marketing the baby parts. Will the feds decide to prosecute 15 or 16 states if they decide to adopt such a policy?

I can just hear some pompous federal bureaucrat dumping all over various states because they are not willing to pay for the murder and resale of unborn children (and they ARE children, even if unborn). However, the "law" that allows for the murder of unborn children is not nearly as old as the one that says Thou shalt not kill  (Exodus 20:13). And the two laws obviously have two different and opposite sources. And now the federal government may prosecute states that choose to follow the Commandment rather than the federal edict.

Some of those  in the insane race for president have stated that would look into what Planned Parenthood has been doing if elected. Which means, in plain English, that they want the pro-life vote so they will give the appearance of being concerned until the election is over.  I'm sorry, but at this point, I don't trust any of them.

The Reuters article noted also that: "Anti-abortion activists said that a sixth video, released on Wednesday, shows  Planned Parenthood doctors sell(ing) aborted fetal tissue to researchers without the mother's permission." And of course Planned Parenthood still maintains it has done nothing wrong. The blood of those unborn children, crying out from their graves, gives the lie to that absurdity and the people at Planned Parenthood who willingly participate in these murders will answer to the Lord for these lives.

In the meantime, other states that would like to defund Planned Parenthood should go ahead and take that action and make that statement. For if there is a chance that they may be in violation of federal statutes, there is also the chance that they may not.  And either way, it is the right thing to do.

Murdering Babies

by Al Benson Jr.

They call it "pro-choice," at least those over on the political and theological left do. In plain English, "pro-choice" means that they want you to have the "freedom" to decide whether to murder your unborn baby or not. The people that push this don't want you to have any other freedoms, definitely no First or Second or Tenth Amendment freedoms, but they do want you to feel free to kill your unborn baby if he or she happens to be inconvenient.

They don't want you to have the freedom to choose your own health care program, or to decide where your kids will attend school, or to decide to fly a flag in your yard if it "offends" some minority group. Those are freedoms you must be denied for the good of "society" but they do want to make sure you are free to kill your unborn child--and they have organizations out there that are more than happy to assist you in baby murder--particularly if they get to keep the baby parts for profitable resale. I know this is blunt but that's probably the best way to say it. It ain't pretty.

So maybe, in light of this vaunted "freedom" the leftists in Washington and elsewhere want you to be able to exercise we ought to ask a few blunt questions about the "freedom" to kill your unborn kids.

Pastor Steve Wilkins of Auburn Ave. Presbyterian Church in Monroe, Louisiana has asked, and answered, a few very direct questions about unborn children and whether parents have the "right" to do away with them if they are an inconvenience.

He asks, "When does life begin?" And he answers "At conception (Job 3:3; Psalm 139:13)...Even when David was 'unformed' he existed as an individual in relation to God (Psalm 139:15-16). Children are gifts of God in the fullest sense of the word." 

He then askes "Is abortion murder?" and answers "Yes.  The only legitimate reasons for the intentional taking of human life are capital punishment and self-defense (either personal or in legitimate warfare). All other taking of human life is murder. Thus the intentional killing of the unborn is murder." And he askes "Aren't there some circumstances in which abortion is justified?" He answers "No." He then askes "What if the mother's life is endangered?" His answer "In these situations the doctor's job is to seek to preserve the lives of both mother and child and not to decide who should die."  Pastor Wilkins admits this is not always easy, but the doctor should try.

And then comes the question I have seen presented on numerous occassions. "What if the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest?" He answers "The innocent parties in the case of rape or incest are the mother and the baby. Only the rapist has done something that is worthy of death. Conception is never an accident (Psalm 127:3).

Pastor Wilkins notes that we must always be ready to reply to the "gainsayers" who will continually raise questions with the hope of making a true biblical perspective on murdering babies seem foolish. These people will often say "You are being judgmental to condemn women who feel they ought to choose abortion." And his reply: "No. God is the one who says it is murder, not us. God alone is the Judge." 

Then they will say "Don't you think a woman has a right to control her own body?" Again, he answers "No. Her body is not her own but given to her by God and she has a responsibility to govern it according to God's Word. And besides, the body of the baby is a separate body." There's that "R" word--responsibility--that thing most folks want to run from.

Then someone will pipe up and say "Aren't you concerned about the problem of unwanted children?"  To which Pastor Wilkins answers "Yes. But if a woman is not married and doesn't want children, she should abstain from sexual intercourse..." Now there's a blockbuster for this day and age, when we are faced with a culture that has been conditioned to want the fun and games but no responsibility for playing. This so-called "free" culture doesn't want to hear all that. Easier to believe the politicians from the "District of Corruption."

And then there is that hackneyed old leftist cliche "Aren't you concerned about over-population?" How many times have I heard that one tossed out there in the past three decades? I can't count them. But Pastor Wilkins has an answer for that one, too.  He says, again, "No God says that a growing population is a great  blessing to a people. The world is not over-populated but under-populated.  Our calling is not to prevent births but to be fruitful and multiply." The "over-population" bugaboo has been around for a long time. Back in 1969 R. J. Rushdoony wrote a little book called The Myth of Over Population. Even back then astute clergymen like him realized that over-population was a myth.

And in a final note, Pastor Wilkins says: "We must repent of being part of a nation that has sanctioned the murder of unborn children.  We have become a nation of self-righteous, hypocritical barbarians.  God will not allow such hypocrisy to go unpunished. But more than all else, we must repent of being part of a Church that has stood by in guilty silence..." And I must admit, I often wonder how much the 501 C3 status of churches has to do with that situation. Maybe that's something else we need to repent of.

Planned Parenthood--Abortion For Profit?

by Al Benson Jr.

There has been quite a fuss (as well there should be) over those videos of Planned Parenthood's senior director, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, explaining how Planned Parenthood's senior employees perform abortions that leave major organs and other body parts intact so they can be resold on the market. Sound preposterous?  In today's culture it shouldn't, just business as usual. It is happening and it's all part of our New World Order culture.

And the people that promote this carnage are hoping the general public will continue to be outraged at the killing of some rare lion in Africa and thereby pay no attention to what Planned Parenthood is doing in this country. So far their hopes have been greatly realized. And, needless to say, our dutiful and compliant "news media will focus on the lion story as much as it can and as little on the Planned Parenthood story as it can get away with.

Russell Longcore, on the DumpDC website has observed that: "The news is full of stories these days about Planned Parenthood (PP), the so-called 'family planning' organization. The Center for Medical Progress has been recording perfectly legal videos PP staffers...discussing how PP is harvesting body parts from aborted fetuses (real human babies) and selling those parts to research labs. Apparently, it is a profitable revenue source for PP. And Planned Parenthood is largely funded by Congress...and you. PP receives over $500 million in funds each year from Congress." With congressional funding for this operation it sort of makes you wonder where Congress is at morally--or more important--where the people are morally that voted these turkeys into office.

We were all told, after the last election, that once the Republicans got control of Congress, why we'd only be about two steps away from the Millennium. It would all be "pie in the sky by and by" and "by and by" would be any day now. Upon such falsehoods the delusions of grandeur have been founded. Ask yourselves just how much this Republican Congress has slowed the Obama socialist juggernaut. The answer is, not much. But, then, if the truth be known, they never intended to. The Republican's program is Obama's agenda with different rhetoric. The different rhetoric is supposed to fool the voting public into believing  that "real change" has taken place when all that's really changed is the verbiage.

I got an email last evening fro Eagle Forum, the headline for which was "Senate fails to defund Planned Parenthood." Did anyone really expect anything different from this Congress? I didn't. The Eagle Forum article noted: "This morning the Center for Medical Progress released its fifth video exposing the truth about Planned Parenthood. This video provides still more evidence that this taxpayer-funded organization is engaged in illegal and barbaric practices that yield a profit on the exploitation of women and the butchery of innocent children." Where are all the "Feminist" organizations when you need them? With all the evidence out there now about what Planned Parenthood has been doing, our benevolent Senate somehow could not come up with enough votes or intestinal fortitude  to take its money away. What does that tell you about the character of those Congress Critters that voted to have the public have to continue to pay for this butchery? By their vote they make us all accomplices to what Planned Parenthood does--but then, that's not nearly as important as some lion that got shot in Africa is it?

The Infowars website had an article on it about the  Governor of Louisiana cutting off state funding for Planned Parenthood.  Gov. Jindal said: "This is not an organization that is worthy of receiving public assistance from the state." The article continued: "Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal has cut off taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood in the wake of the shocking videos showing the organization harvesting baby organs for profit. Not only has Jindal blocked Medicaid money to Planned Parenthood, but he also barred the State Dept. of Health and Hospitals from funding the organization." Jindal said: "In recent weeks it has been shocking to see reports of the alleged activities taking place at Planned Parenthood facilities across the country...Planned Parenthood does not represent the values of the people of Louisiana and shows a fundamental disrespect for human life." I wonder how many other governors have done at least this much. Oh, I realize Jindal is running for president and all, but still, his is a good statement and I'd like to see other governors endorse it. I don't plan on holding my breath too long.

It would be great, and a step in the right direction, if several states decided to do this. I realize that Washington, D.C.  will probably not ever do it and you can't expect this Marxist president to ever endorse it. Planned Parenthood and its agenda is part and parcel of his cultural worldview. He is the living epitomy of Proverbs 8:36--"But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all that hate me love death." That's where he is at, and those that voted for him strictly on the basis of skin color will have much to answer for.

The Center for Medical Progress' David Daleiden summed it up when he said: "Planned Parenthood's criminal conspiracy to make money off of aborted baby parts reaches to the very highest level of their organization." So, is it "abortion for profit" on the part of Planned Parenthood? It surely does seem like it is, and that being the case, this organization is not deserving of any support from decent folks and indeed, needs to be exposed so that the America people know just what Congress is forcing us to pay for.

Cultural Genocide From a Generational Perspective

by Al Benson Jr.

For the past few weeks I have been watching the national reaction to the shooting at the black church in Charleston, South Carolina and the gigantic fuss being made of the Confederate flag in regard to that.

In my opinion this is shaping up like a well-managed psy-ops campaign to rid the South of not only guns, but also the symbols of her culture and heritage. If one said that situations like this seldom happen by accident he would be pretty close to the truth.

They started out by working to remove all Confederate flags they could in Southern states. The political hacks we have for politicians have been lining up to see who could be the first to remove Confederate flags.  The governors of South Carolina and Alabama seem to have won that questionable race while it looks like Mississippi might end up a distant third, depending on how much noise her voters make over the issue.

Now we have started to see the emergence of a campaign to remove all Confederate statues as well. This gives the Cultural Genocide campaign against the South a more enduring perspective. Statues are something that usually remain for generations and people from all generations see them. Youngsters in the upcoming generation see them and often ask their parents why this statue is here and what it represents and, if the parents have a clue,  they can usually explain to the kids the reason for the statue.

If the statues end up being removed, along with the flags, then part of your past culture ends up missing, and if your kids never see it they don't know what it represented and can't ask.

Folks, I grew up in the North. In my growing-up years I never saw much that passed for regional culture except the Yankee mindset that everyone should think like they did.

In the South you have had a vibrant, traditional and regional culture that I have enjoyed. It's part of the reason my wife and I are here. And the politically correct Cultural Marxist crowd is trying to kill that as quickly as they can. You can't let them do it, because, once it is dead, you will never get it back.

Begin to realize that "those people" are trying to purposely destroy your culture, which has a Christian base, and that this is the main object of their agenda. You have got to stand up and resist this. Weeping and moaning on the sidelines won't cut it--you have got to fight back! Find ways to resist every attempt they make to remove your culture because  what they are really doing is to try to make sure your children inherit not culture whatever.  Years ago I heard a man say "The 'new' South is NO South!" He said that in a speech and although I didn't agree with some of the other things he said, he was right on target with that comment.  A region bereft of its history and traditions is a region already dead, and, from the neck up, its people are dead. This is the Cultural Marxists' plan for the South.

Franklin Sanders, in the October, 2014 issue of The Moneychanger said, and quite accurately, "Make no mistake! For any people the past is their life. Cut  off from their past, a people cannot have any future. Their future dies. So it is not trivial when they attack your flag--they are not attacking merely that symbol, but everything that symbol represents, your religion, your culture, and ultimately you. They want to destroy the culture because they want to destroy you. They understand that without your past, they destroy your future."

Even fictional writers realize this. West Texas author Elmer Kelton (now deceased) once wrote at the end of one of his books: "All history is relevant today, because the way we live--the values we believe in--are a result of the molds prepared for us by our forebears a long time ago. We are the products of the preparation of those who came before us." Another fictional writer, Louis L'Amour (also deceased) said basically the same thing. He wrote: "We must not lose touch with what we were,with what we had been, nor must we allow the well of our history to dry up, for a child without tradition is a child crippled before the world."

That is exactly what the Cultural Marxists want for your kids--first across the South and then all across the rest of the country--a generation crippled before the world. They want a Southland ashamed of its history and heritage and supine on the ground so that when they kick it, it will not even whimper! They want a Southland unaware of its Christian foundations and ashamed of what it is aware of, and if "those people" have their way that won't be much--except for the slavery issue.  The fact that the North once had slaves also will NEVER  be mentioned. All some of them will ever be ashamed of is that, when they sold their slaves south, they didn't make more on the deal.

So don't just take my word for it. Look at what those men I have quoted in this article have all said, and they have basically said the same thing, totally independent of one another! There was no grand design on their part to help each other preserve Southern heritage--but you can't say the same for the Cultural Marxists that are working to destroy Southern heritage and culture. They work together and they have a plan, which hopefully you are beginning to see if you hadn't before, to see the fruit of their efforts. Get rid of all Confederate flags. Get rid of any Confederate statuary, get rid of all street, school, and bridge names, and park names that have anything to do with the Old Confederacy. All Confederate memory must be wiped off the slate. The next generation must have NOTHING  whatever in their memories to relate to the Old South and/or those that fought for it (except slavery naturally).

They plan to totally brainwash the next generation so they will have nothing worthwhile about their past to refer back to--and if they have no past, then they have no future--except that which the Cultural Marxists have planned for them.

If we refuse to stand up and resist this orchestrated cultural purge then we will deserve exactly what we get. If we won't stand up and resist the destruction of our future generations' culture and heritage, the day will come when our descendants may well curse us because we did not leave them anything worthwhile or worth fighting for. We will have left them "crippled before the world" and, if at some point, they curse us for that, they will be justified in so doing.

And someday we will have to stand before the Lord and answer as to why we would not stand up for those good things He provided for us, and why our "reality shows" were more important than our culture, heritage, and history. People can lie to one another about why they couldn't be bothered to speak out for what was right, but they won't be able to lie to the Lord. He already knows the answer.

So, if Southern folks can't be bothered to stand up and defend a culture that has a Christian base and to try to pass that along to their children, then they will have to answer.

To Southern Folks: The Republican Party Will Not Save You (and they are not really trying to)

by Al Benson Jr.

Too many folks here in the South really believe that the Republican Party is the "party of small government" that is out there manfully trying to protect them from the "liberal Democrats." It sounds so good when you read the Republican Party literature during an election year. Unfortunately, much of what sounds good to people often turns out to be bovine fertilizer and the Republican "concern" for limited government is one of the biggest piles of that around.

The Republican Party is not really concerned about limited government and if you look at their history, there have really been very few times when they were. Their first presidential candidate, John C. (pathfinder) Fremont back in 1856 leaned to the left politically, and when the War of Northern Aggression commenced he had several Forty-eighter socialists under his command. Donnie Kennedy and I have documented this in our book Lincoln's Marxists. Their next candidate, Abraham Lincoln, was just as far to the left, but the "history" books don't bother to tell you any of that. Better for the establishment if you don't know. Except, thanks to authors like Tom DiLorenzo, the word is getting out about what Lincoln really was, and there are others as well.

Today I read an article on LewRockwell.com by Paul Gottfried called  Neocons Hate the South. Mr. Gottfried noted that since the shootings in Charleston "GOP officials have been scrambling to comply with leftist demands that Southern whites be stripped of visible signs of their Confederate heritage. The GOP has actually been downplaying the Confederacy for years..." I recall, a few years back now, when Cheney was Vice-President, someone of note in the South passed away and the was a Confederate flag at the funeral home where he was displayed. Cheney refused to even go in until that Confederate flag was removed. This is your Republican's "love" for the South and your heritage. Gottfried noted that: "Neoconservatives have long stood out from other Republicans and members of Conservatism Inc. by virtue of the intensity of their loathing for the white South." And at this point in time, it seems that these are the people that control the Republican Party. The Republicans don't hesitate to use the Southern vote to help them gain control of Congress--but look at what has happened since they got control in November, 2014. Has government gotten any smaller? Are the Republicans really trying to stave off the efforts of the "liberal" Democrats for more and bigger government? Hardly! What has happened is that the public, if they really take the trouble to look, will find that what we really have in Washington is a melding together of both political parties into one group and it is predominently liberal/left in its outlook and the Republicans, for all their "conservative" rhetoric are more than willing to go along with much of what Comrade Obama has planned for the country.

So our path down the road to some sort of European socialism will be promoted by two political parties who claim to disagree with one another but who are willing to work together to forge the chains of socialism around the necks of the American people.

And they particularly want to forge those chains on people in the South because that is the region that balks most consistently against the wiles of big government. Make no mistake about it--both parties in Washington hate your guts of you are Southern. You stand for everything that their One World government agenda is opposed to. The South is the last part of the country that even makes any pretention to the Christian faith, and that is their real enemy. Christ and the Confederacy have to go in the South and so all symbols and flags that remind anyone of either one must be purged--and the Republicans will work just as eagerly at that as will any black NAACP member! They hate your faith. They hate your heritage. They want them both gone and you had better wake up and realize that.

As for Confederate flags and monuments we are going to have to start looking for private property to put them on, preferably along highways where they have some visibility. But we can pretty well figure, with the present purge, that any "public" property will not be healthy for our heritage. I've just read where they have, in Memphis, decided to dig up Bedford Forrest and his wife and to re-inter them somewhere less "public" than where they are now. I suppose at this point the authorities in Memphis are on the lookout for some "potter's field" out in the boonies where they hope no one will ever go to rebury them.

Folks, I've stated before in articles that the Republican Party ain't your friend and that if you really are conservative or patriotic then you need to start looking somewhere else. Folks in the South have got to start looking for another political savior because the Republicans won't cut the mustard--and actually there is no salvation in politics anyway. North or South, only the Lord can straighten out the mess we find ourselves in today so maybe we had better get on our knees and ask Him what He wants us to do--and if the mess is to be straightened out He will want us to do something, not just sit it out and wait for the "rapture."

NASCAR Plans to Eliminate Confederate Flag

Just this morning (6/29) I published an article on http://revisedhistory.wordpress.com about the ethnic cleansing (Cultural Marxism) going on presently in Marxist Memphis, Tennessee. I would encourage those reading this to go and check it out. One writer, commenting on all this called it a "Stalinist purge" and I agree with his take on the current situation. He's figured it out. Lots of these other commentators don't have the first clue.

Shortly after I posted that I came across a short article from GOPUSAEagle which noted that now NASCAR president Brian France plans to work to make sure that NASCAR is no longer, in any way, connected to the Confederate flag. He said: We want to go as far as we can to eliminate the presence of that flag at NASCAR events." 

That's a pretty straight forward statement for Southern folks to digest, if they will take the trouble to do it. Your money is welcome as NASCAR because it will enrich their coffers, but your flags are not welcome, so bring your cash and leave your flag at home.

I've never bothered much with car racing, at least not for several decades now, but I will tell you one thing--if NASCAR spit on my heritage they way they have spit on Southerners heritage, I'd never darken the door of one of their tracks again. If you don't need my flag then you don't need my money either. It'd  be nice to see 5,000 Confederate flags at some NASCAR event in the near future. One wonders if the track officials would throw out all those that carried them, not let them in, or what.

What would be even better would be for Southern folks who truly revere their cultural heritage to just stop patronizing NASCAR events. They are willing to spit in your face and on your flag while taking your money, which shows they really have no concern for their clientele except what's in their wallets. If I still attended car races anywhere, I'd be strongly attempted to start boycotting NASCAR events.

Muslims Didn't Create Quite As Much As We've Been Told They Did

by Al Benson Jr.

If we listened to certain "historians" we would think that the Muslim faith is responsible for just about all of Western civilization and that Europeans would still be living in caves if it were not for them. Even that man in the White House, who some have called "that Muslim Mole" has stated that the fabric of this country's founding was strongly Muslim. Sounds like he's been reading some of our current "historians" who are willing to accord anyone except Christians credit for most everything good that has happened here.

Historian Rodney Stark is one who is honest enough not to participate in this politically correct charade. Mr. Stark has observed that: "...the sophisticated culture so often attributed to Muslims...was actually the culture of the conquered people--the Judeo-Christian-Greek culture of Byzantium."

Pastor Steve Wilkins of Monroe, Louisiana has pointed out several areas where Muslims have gotten historical credit for the accomplishments of those they conquered. Pastor Wilkins has noted that: "What is called the 'earliest scientific book in the language of Islam' was a treatise on medicine by a Syrian Christian priest in Alexandria, which was translated into Arabic by a Persian Jewish physician. The leading Muslim physicians were trained in the Nestorian medical center in Syria. The first hospital in Baghdad was built by a Nestorian Christian.  The man who paved the way for the great medical advances was not a Muslim but Belgian physician,Andreas Vesalius. He published the first accurate description of human internal organs. He could do this because Christianity doesn't forbid examination of human bodies (autopsies)--which were forbidden by Islam."

Years ago I started to read a book by writer Louis L'Amour called The Walking Drum which repeated this same fallacy about Muslim supremacy. If you believed what L'Amour wrote you would envision a thriving Muslim civilization emerging while most of Europe huddled in cold stone castles, afraid to even take a bath! Unfortunately, L'Amour had succumbed to politically correct "history" when he wrote that book. It was about the only book of his I ever read that I didn't finish. About a third of the way through I said "This is nothing but pro-Muslim propaganda" and I just quit reading. L'Amour was a good writer and the Westerns he did were just great. I've read many of them several times. He should have stuck to Westerns!

Pastor Wilkins noted further that: "Donald R. Hill, author of the definitive work on the Muslim contribution to science,  admits that very few developments could be traced to Arab origins and that most of these contributions originated with conquered populations. The most important 'Muslim' philosopher-scientist, Avicenna, was not a Muslim but a Persian (as was the famous mathematician and astronomer, Omar Khayyam). The 'father of algebra' Abu Ja far Muhammed, was a Zoroastrian. 'Arabic' numerals were developed by Hindus in pre-Islamic India. The famous 'Muslim' astronomer, Masha'alla Athari, was a Jew'."

All this is not to say the Muslims never made any contributions, "But  Robert Spencer notes, 'the historical record simply doesn't support the idea that Islam inspired a culture that outstripped others.' The Muslims, for the most part, borrowed a culture they were incapable of developing. It was for this reason when Islamic rulers sought to stamp out all adherents to other religions in the 14th century, 'Islamic culture' collapsed into the backwardness we see today."

And Pastor Wilkins asked the question--"What is it about Islam that stifles progress and intellectual growth? Biblical faith teaches us that we serve a Triune God who is infinitely creative, who calls upon His people to imitate Him in searching out, investigating, and exploring His creation. Christianity has always produced lively, inquisitive cultures, who could explore and examine, and invent without fear of offending the true God.  Allah, however, is to be believed and never questioned.  The prevailing assumption of Islam is that the Qu'ran is the perfect book and no other is needed. Biblical Christians understand that God is a God of order and that He not only created all things but actively sustains all things. This reality makes science and scientific experimentation possible...Islam kills science and consequently, there is little progress or advance in Islamic countries."

The central issue with Islam is always submission--all other religions and cultures are to submit to Islam. We see this happening today all over Europe wherever Muslims have large centers of population and the Europeans are just now beginning to grasp the fact that if they don't do something they will lose their countries to their growing Muslim populations. Because, whether you like the thought or not, these people DO intend to make you submit and they will take your weak attempts at "being nice" to them in such a way as to question your backbone and they will exploit your lack of resolve.

If you want to check out one major contribution to the world culture that Muslims are largely responsible for, take a look at the slave trade. The Muslims were slave traders. They still are. For all their horror over the slave trade, today's politically correct "useful idiots" prefer to confine their comments about slavery, especially in this country, to a slavery that disappeared 150 odd years ago. It no longer exists. But Muslims promote and practice slavery in other countries in our day and the politically correct never deal with this. It might :"offend" the Muslims and so they just don't mention it. It's just fine to offend Christians, in fact it's part of their agenda, but heaven forbid that they offend a Muslim!

So that's where it is today, and the Christians had better wake up and smell the coffee!

"Spontaneous Demonstrations"--yeah right! Pigs fly, too

by Al Benson Jr.

Following the political scene as I have for years, I have seen commentary on all manner of riots, demonstrations, marches and what-not over the years. The usual case is that what we laughingly refer to as the "news" media leaves far more information out than they give about these events.

Most of them are labeled "spontaneous" demonstrations over whatever the leftist agenda currently lists as the "cause of the day." However, let's don't kid ourselves. These demonstrations are about as spontaneous as Chivington's attack on the Cheyenne village at Sand Creek, Colorado in 1864.

I recall being on the East Coast during the Kent State situation where national guardsmen fired into a crowd of "student" demonstrators and the entire country erupted within a day. I saw students being schooled in how to demonstrate "spontaneously" by their professors and I saw some of that those students did "spontaneously." Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore have not been that much different. The Watts riots back in the 1960s were hardly spontaneous, but lots of thought and planning went into making sure they looked that way to the general public.

I have quoted a couple times, in articles, from a book called The Strawberry Statement--Notes of a College Revolutionary where the author stated, on pages 130-131 how he and other radicals were offered Establishment money to "make a lot of radical commotion" so some in the Ruling Elite can be made to look like centrists while they move to the left. The author of the book, James Simon Kunen, said exactly that. He observed: "We were offered Esso (Rockefeller) money. They wanted us to make a lot of radical commotion so they can look more in the center as they move to the left. I found out at this meeting that Life is doing a five-part article on SDS in the fall. The article is supposed to be favorable, and they want our cooperation. It was obvious to everyone that what Life is trying to do is co-opt us. And I always thought they were trying to sell magazines." No, James, Life, Newsweek, Time and a lot of other publications were about much more than "selling magazines." They, like the government schools, were about leftist propaganda and the befuddlement of the general public with it. Their job is to put the right spin on the news and they do that by telling us only part of the story and omitting what doesn't fit the leftist/Establishment agenda.

I've seen them at work over the years and they are downright devious. Their "reporters" come to write about a certain event and its participants and they basically have their story already written before they even show up. All they have to do is get a few names and then spin those people's comments to make them say what fits the agenda--even if that's not really what they said. They are not there for the truth, they are there to promote the agenda of those who pay them to write half-truths and outright falsehoods. I could give personal examples of some of what I have witnessed in this area but it would take pages!

So now we have riots in Baltimore over the death of a black man. I don't know all the ins and outs of how he died but I have read that he had a rap sheet as long as your arm--mostly drug-related incidents--not that this excuses any police brutality that there may have been but lets face it folks, this guy was no saint! It seems like most of the black people in this incidents who are painted as innocent martyrs have very checkered pasts and yet the media portrays them as being pure as the driven snow.

A good thing to look at in Baltimore, as well as other places, is who starts the riots and demonstrations that end up destroying private property and ruining lives? The news media seldom dwells on this, which is all the more reason people should start checking out what the alternative media has to say about it. Quite often the alternative media reports what the regular "news" media should and doesn't. An article I read just today noted that one of the main troublemakers in Baltimore was an individual who had been part of the New Black Panther Party. Now the regular media had to know that and yet the omitted it entirely and named only one other advocacy group he belonged to. Why not name both? Well, naming the group this person was involved with that had a Marxist background would have given the game away and so the "news" media conveniently left it out.

I recall, during the Kent State affair, seeing boxes and boxes of printed propaganda material in various places where the local college students could have access to it. Some of it was even printed in North Viet Nam and this was during the Viet Nam War. Who do you suppose shipped all this Marxist material to these college kids? No one ever asked that question. Just an ignored fact that wasn't supposed to be dealt with.

In observing these "spontaneous" riots or whatever, start checking out the alternative media to see what it has to say and start trying to ascertain who benefits from these things. It surely isn't the rioters--they're only the cannon fodder for the folks that finance and promote all this-the people that are trying to exert pressure from above (the Ruling Elite) and to do that they are using pressure from below (the leftist radicals) and those caught in the middle between these two pressure points are the Middle Class--and squeezing them and eventually eliminating them is what it's really all about, according to Marx.

Charleston Voice: Government Schools—the god that failed on purpose

Charleston Voice: Government Schools—the god that failed on purpose:   By Al Benson Jr. Posted on April 21, 2015   In the past I have commented on how most people view public schools, how many have commented on their gross failure to educate and I have stated that the public schools have really not failed-at what they were instituted to do--the dumbing down of our kids. At this they have  been a smashing success.

What they have failed to do, and this is on purpose, is to educate the children committed to their charge. They continue to turn out graduates who don't even know what century the War of Northern Aggression was fought in or who Hitler was, or who was president before our current Commissar took the office.

"Freedom" in the U.S.? Don't Make Me Laugh!

by Al Benson Jr.

After the 9/11 debacle, (whoever was responsible for that) President Bush got on tv and said that the terrorists that did it hated us because of our freedoms. At that point my first thought was "what hogwash." And as the Bush administration went along after 9/11 they made more than sure that American citizens would never again be burdened with too much freedom and to do that they gave us the Patriot Act. It has gone downhill from there.

By the time our current commissar came along to inhabit the White (Red) House he had promised us that he would fundamentally "transform" the United States and would have the most "transparent" administration in history. This line didn't even deserve to be rated as hogwash--it was even below hogwash. I probably couldn't come up with a term for it that wouldn't get me shut down so I will leave it to your imaginations. Suffice it to say that I, long ago, had given up believing the political fertilizer slingers that assured us we were living in a "free country." I knew they were lying and so did they--but they did it with such a straight face that most folks, less suspicious than me, bought into it. The "land of the free and the home of the brave" has been transformed into the "land of the freeloader and the home of the brain-dead." And it hasn't been accidental. It's part of the agenda.

I've been waiting for the Christian Church to wake up and realize what has happened. Mostly, it ain't happening. Most Christians I've come across don't know and they don't want to know. After all, if you can't trust your government then who can you trust? That's their rationale. Anyone who tries to tell them, for their own good, what's going on is automatically a "conspiracy theorist" or a "right wing nut." They haven't got time to be bothered trying to defend their liberties so they can pass them along to their children and grandchildren. That's not important. Half of them, or more, feel that they will be "raptured" out of here before it gets real sticky and so they don't have to be bothered doing anything about our problems. The rest feel so strongly that the Lord is in control (which He is) that they don't have to be bothered doing anything to combat evil in the world--the Lord will take care of all that. They are just along for the spiritual ride. The Church has been lulled to sleep in the last 150 years, due to apostasy and planned neutralization. It once stood for something--now it falls for everything.

Just today I read an article by John Whitehead, from his web site entitled Kick Open the Doorway to Liberty: What Are We Waiting For?  It's in the commentary section of the Rutherford Institute web site.
Mr. Whitehead seems to feel the same frustration that I do about where the country is going and about the almost total lack of concern of most people.

Mr. Whitehead noted that: "Everything this nation once stood for is being turned on its head. Free speech, religious expression, privacy, due process, bodily integrity, the sanctity of human life, the sovereignty of the family...the right to self defense, protection against police abuses...private property, human rights--the very ideals that once made this nation great--have become casualties  of a politically correct, misguided, materialistic, amoral, militaristic culture." Again, this is NOT by accident. It's not just "happening." And he also says: "Why should we Americans have to put up with the government listening in on our phone calls, spying on our emails, subjecting us to roadside strip searches, and generally holding our freedoms hostage in exchange for some phantom promises of security?" Good question. But let's be realistic here. The promises of "security" (prisons are secure, too) are nothing more than a way to get Americans to surrender their God-given liberties without a fight. It's a lot less bloody if the government can convince people that it is "protecting" them instead of taking over their lives to fulfill the socialist agenda of the One World Government crowd in Washington and New York.

And if you think this isn't really happening, that it's not really that bad, take a look at a National Review article, (www.nationalreview.com) by Alec Torres for January 1, 2014. Mr. Torres wrote: "When President Obama took office in 2009, the U.S. was ranked the sixth freest economy. It is the only country in the world to have recorded a loss of economic freedom each of the past seven years.  Since 2006, the U.S. has 'suffered a dramatic decline of almost six points, with particularly large losses in property rights, freedom from corruption, and control of government spending,' according to the report. 'Substantial expansion in the size and scope of government, including through new and costly regulations in areas like finance and health care, has contributed significantly to the erosion of U.S. economic freedom. The growth of government has been accompanied by increasing cronyism that has undermined the rule of law and perceptions of fairness."

Now I don't always agree with all the National Review says, but in this case, Mr. Torres has nailed it pretty accurately. Your freedom and liberty and economic status had seriously deteriorated since the advent of the current Marxist regime with its promises of "transparency."

Although there are lots of folks who don't like what they see happening and are concerned by what has more and more become a rogue administration, their main response has been to gripe a little and that's it. Christians, in the main, don't have anymore of a clue than anyone else, and sad to say, lots of them don't want one. For them to realize what's going on would mean that they would have to, as Christians, take some responsibility to take a stand against the evil they see around them--and that's just too much trouble nowadays. Lots easier to tune in the upcoming "Reality" show and forget about the rest. Just "let George (or Barack) take care of it--which is just what they've done and now they don't like the results.

Mr. Whitehead, at the conclusion of his article asks: "Where are the Sons of Liberty, the Committees of Correspondence and the insistently courageous  city councils now, when they are crucially needed to bring back the Bill of Rights that protect every American against government tyranny worse than King George III's? Where are the citizens demanding that these doorways to liberty be opened? What are we waiting for?"

Well, Mr. Whitehead, what they are waiting for is the "rapture" to take them out of all this so they won't have to do any of the things you mention here, or else they are waiting for the Lord to do it all so they don't have to get involved and get their hands dirty. Either way, what we've mostly got here, not totally, but mostly, is a do nothing church that just can't be bothered and that doesn't want to believe it's as bad as some have told them. This country will probably be judged for their attitude, and that's not a pleasant thought.

Where Is the Church Headed Now—And should we resist the trip?


By Al Benson Jr.

Earlier this week someone sent me an article from Relevant Magazine entitled: The Presbyterian Church Votes to Recognize Same-Sex Marriage. The headline is slightly misleading because all Presbyterians have not voted to endorse or accept same-sex (sodomite) marriage. No doubt the “progressive Presbyterians” have accepted it, but us Neanderthals in many Presbyterian churches have not, and will not, in accordance with God’s Word, accept this.

Actually the article is referring to the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) or PCUSA as most of us call it.  This denomination has been drifting leftward by degrees for decades now and so such a move was not totally unexpected. According to the Relevant article: “While the office of the General Assembly is still awaiting official tallies, it appears that a majority of the 171 presbyteries of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) have approved a change to the current description of marriage in the PC (USA)’s Constitution.”

Unfortunately, the liberal Presbyterians are not the only ones in the church that are pushing this perversion. In another article on www.relevantmagazine.com  the headline reads: Rob Bell: The Church Is ‘Moments Away’ From Accepting Gay Marriage. The article went on to say: “He (Bell) went on to say the church was risking irrelevance by holding off on an embrace of gay marriage. ‘I think the culture is already there,’ he said. ‘And the church will continue to be even more irrelevant when it quotes letters from 2,000 years ago as their best defense…’.” Look at his last statement. Do you realize what he’s saying here? He’s calling into doubt what the New Testament has to say about marriage because it doesn’t seem “relevant” to him. Where does that put him in regard to the authority of Scripture? If he can dismiss the truth of Scripture that easily because it doesn’t conform to what the world believes, I would suggest that, in the long run, maybe he is irrelevant.

In another article on www.standupfortruth.com  Rob Bell is noted as part of the Emergent Church movement, which the article describes this way: “The Emergent Church movement is a progressive Christian movement that attempts to reduce or eliminate Christian doctrine in favor of experience and feelings. Most do not believe man can know what is absolute truth, and believe God must be experienced outside of traditional biblical doctrines.” This is just another version of “if it feels good do it.” No doctrine, no absolute truth, just experience and feeling. These people are the Transcendentalists of the 21st century. Emerson and Thoreau would have loved them! The article notes some of the leaders of this movement—among whom are Rob Bell and Rick Warren (“whom many of these leaders point to as their inspiration for the Emergent Movement.”) Does this help you to understand why Warren’s name was linked with Obama’s during the 2008 presidential farce?

It would seem that the arrogance and egotism of some of these apostates (and that’s what they are) knows no ends. In a brief article on www.beginningandend.com  the following was noted: “In a stunning sign of the growing apostasy—the rise of the false church in Christianity that no longer treats the Bible as its final authority, Reverend Oliver White of Grace Community United Church,  came on the radio show of Fox News Host Sean Hannity to proclaim that Jesus Christ was ‘wrong’  on the issue of homosexuality and gay marriage. White, speaking for Jesus Christ, said, with respect to the issue of gay marriage no longer being a sin: ‘If Jesus were alive today, I think he would be more inclined to say: you know, I didn’t know it all’…” There’s a photo of Rev. White at the top of this article holding what appears to be a big Bible—but then, with Rev. White’s attitude toward Jesus, maybe it’s really an enlarged version of The Humanist Manifesto. Here’s a man who thinks he knows more than Jesus Christ. Another 21st century Transcendentalist! Who says Unitarianism, Transcendentalism, and all the other unholy “isms” died in the 19th century? Some of them may have taken a little breather, but they are back, alive and well today and their practitioners are back, fooling another generation of “useful idiots” who have never read their church history anymore than they have their American history and so they continue to make grandiose pronouncement while not knowing upside down from inside out.

You have to wonder why more preachers don’t stand up and expose this stuff. Too many have been bemused into a “all I’m called to do is to preach the gospel and I don’t want to get involved in politics” stance. This absolves them, so they think, from having to do anything about the abysmal spiritual condition of the church in our day. If they don’t know anything about any of it then they can’t deal with it, and so they continue on with a truncated version of John 3:16 and never, and I mean never, get beyond that. Nothing against John 3:16—it’s foundational, but if you never get past  the foundation then the house isn’t going to get built and you’ll live in the cellar forever. That’s one problem I have with the Scofield Bible Notes. They teach Christians to stay in the cellar because that’s all they will ever be.

Another problem for the cellar dwellers is the501c3 syndrome, which says that if any church, anywhere, makes even the remotest political statement about anything, then they will lose their tax exemption. Churches today are hide-bound by this and scared stiff to say anything that might “offend” the ruling elite and cost them their exemption. An article on www.hushmoney.org noted that “Churches were only added to section 501c3 of the tax code in 1954. We can thank Senator Lyndon B. Johnson for that.  Johnson was no ally of the church.  As part of his political agenda, Johnson had it in mind to silence the church and eliminate the significant influence the church had always had on shaping ‘public policy’…For a 501c3 church to openly speak out, or organize in opposition to, anything the government declares ‘legal’ even if it is immoral (e.g. abortion, homosexuality, etc.) that church will jeopardize its tax exempt status. The 501c3 has had a ‘chilling effect’ upon the free speech rights of the church.” The article noted that LBJ was a “shrewd and cunning politician who seemed to well-appreciate how easily many of the clergy would sell out.”

Now the IRS routinely warns churches during election years not to deal with where candidates stand on any issues and so the threat is always there.

So this seems to be where the church is headed—intimidated by the IRS, scared stiff of losing their tax exemptions, inundated with false preachers who tell us that sodomy and other related sins are okay and that we wont be “relevant” unless we dump biblical teaching and embrace all the latest perversions. Thank the Lord there are some churches that don’t buy into this bovine fertilizer, but there are too many that do. The pastors that promote this rank apostasy are leading their congregations astray and there doesn’t seem, in many cases, to be enough spiritual discernment among the congregants to grasp this.


At the risk of offending the current seekers of “relevance” I would go back and advocate what the Scripture says in 2nd Corinthians 6:14-18 to Christians in our day. If you are in a church where this kind of thing is permitted or encouraged then separate yourself from that church and find one that believes in and trusts the Holy Scriptures. Staying in apostate congregations will do nothing more than make you “two-fold more the child of hell” than you were before. I can understand wanting to help and love sinners, but accepting their perversions as normal does not help them, in fact it may well do them eternal harm.
