… in our day, we are witnessing something of a renewed Romanticism [now called ’emotivism’] and the widespread flight from reason.

American [liberals] hold these truths to be self-evident:

    All cultures and religions are equally meritorious (except for Christianity)

    There is no objective truth (until and unless progressives declare the truth)

    You cannot legislate morality (Therefore, everything is “moral” — except Christian morality)

    [Liberals] celebrate diversity and are tolerant, inclusive, and accepting of all fellow humans (except conservative, white and Christian people).

“… when there’s an election coming up…  Democratic candidates engage in pandering that liberals forgive them for, because they know they don’t really believe it…  Liberalism is engaging in a war against Christianity and it’s time for people to call it what it is and start picking sides.

… conservatives are constantly scolded by the ‘smart’ people in [their] camp, ‘Stay away from the social issues!  It’s the economy, stupid!’  ObamaCare is the key to forcing their social agenda down our throats; abortion, gay marriage, population control, diet control, gun control, control of senior life-or-death decisions, and banning God from the public square — all social issues.  Everything Obama says and does is birthed out of his laser-focused determination to ‘fundamentally transform America’ by implementing his social agenda.

Religious Left Opposes Pressure Against Iranian Nukes

The ecumenical complaint to members of Congress was organized by the Presbyterian Church (USA) chief Capitol Hill lobbyist.  It was signed by Quaker and Mennonite officials, a left-wing Catholic order, and the lobby offices of the United Church of Christ and the United Methodist Church.

Abortion:

The Bible never once specifically forbids abortions; it’s actually quite the contrary!  Not only were methods of abortion well-known at the time, there’s times when the Bible states God commands that [an abortion] take place.

But by accepting the caricatures coming mostly from secular critics, legitimating and perpetuating them, [progressive evangelicals denouncing and caricaturing their conservative brethren for their ‘culture war’ concerns] — acting out of concern for the damage done to the church and its witness — are doing great harm to the church and its witness.

What’s true of the Episcopal Church is also true, to a large extent, of much of the Protestant mainline.  As these churches have lurched leftward in the name of ‘relevance’ and ‘vitality,’ their numbers have plummeted.

… when church leaders offer government as the Savior, they ignore the true problem and the Christian solution. It’s as if they don’t understand the Biblical perspective on humanity and the Gospel.  There’s a simple principle at work here: whomever you trust to save you, that’s your Savior.
