On Wednesday night, a gunman by the name of David Long, walked into Borderline Bar and Grill and gunned down 12 people. Thousands Oaks gunman Ian David Long reportedly used a social media post to mock christians call for “hopes and prayers” following tragic incidents, before gunning down 12 people in the Borderline Bar & Grill on Wednesday night. Authorities believe that he made the posts just prior to committing the gruesome act.
The shooters post says…
“I hope people call me insane… (laughing emojis).. wouldn’t that just be a big ball of irony? Yeah.. I’m insane, but the only thing you people do after these shootings is ‘hopes and prayers’.. or ‘keep you in my thoughts’… every time… and wonder why these keep happening…”

Then, CNN’s Chris Cuomo joined in with the gunman’s comments and openly mocked and attacked christians religious belief in expressing ‘Thoughts and Prayers’, for the victims, and then had the audacity to say…. “you think leaving it to God is the answer?” Then he goes on to say… “What Are You Praying For?”.
This is the same CNN anchor who criticized American Christians who supported President Trump…
Even ABC’s ‘The View’ had Joy Behar mock Christians idea of praying and talking to God, as Behar called it a “mental illness”. Then, one of the other ladies called herself a christian, then slammed christian prayer. She said that talking to God was par for the course. She then said “you talk to Jesus, and he talks to you”. Then she added, the question is “how long is the conversation”, as the ladies laughed…
It isn’t any secret to many, that the Democrat Party and the Mainstream Media is inundated with atheist, anti-Christian, anti-Jewish hatred. They have tried to portray themselves as the party of tolerance, but the problem is Christianity, Judaism, and other religions don’t integrate well with socialist or communist ideology. In fact, both Christianity and Judaism are completely incompatible, if you follow a strict interpretation of the bible. That is one of the primary reasons that Democrats, especially Progressive-Socialist and Pro-Communist Democrats oppose the two religions.
The problem with Christianity and Communist philosophy, is that the two are diametrically opposed to one another. For example, under communism christianity is strictly forbidden, and instead secularistic and materialistic. Karl Marx, the founder of communism, based the entire philosophy on dialectical materialism, and he believed that the worldly system was driven by materialistic economic forces. In contrast, christianity opposes materialism, and looks to the spiritual forces and God, which are free from worldly sin.
Even in Russia today (the former communist Soviet Union), the government campaigns against God, against religion, and against even the belief in God. It has been that way since the Russian Revolution of 1917, when a communist shroud blanketed the Eastern world with darkness.
Also, under communism, there is no divine government, or any absolute moral order. That is one of the reasons that under both fascist socialism, and communist socialism brought about some of the largest exterminations of human lives in China, Russia, Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and the Empire of Japan. After all, for communism… the end justifies the means.
Interestingly, under Christianity and Judaism, the end justifying the means, goes against their christian and jewish faith, because that communist philosophy puts the law into the hands of human beings, and makes the law subjective. Most men and women are geniuses when it comes to being able to justify any behavior, whether good or bad. We can rationalize any action if the motivation for the goal is strong enough. That is exactly why the ends cannot justify the means, because it is a recipe for complete chaos. Its logical outcome is that each person, or group of people, decides what is moral or immoral, based on that particular situation.
Christians believe in quite the opposite, where a set of morals and principles are agreed upon by everyone. It is called Gods laws, the 10 commandments, and in the United States, it is the Constitution of the United States, and all the laws contained within. Therefore, under Christian faith, this is how healthy societies operate, which is by setting rules that everyone must follow, and then punishing the offenders. The greater the crime, the greater the punishment. In fact, that is one of the reasons our Founding Fathers based America on a Constitution, and laws therein on biblical scriptures. Laws to be followed, punishable by incarceration, community service, and even death, depending on the severity of the crime.
Previously, communist regimes grew to a point, but they could not sustain themselves. Christianity always took root, and always made it difficult for the Elitists to control the people. Therefore, today’s communists, socialists, and progressives have smartened up. In modern times, they have slowly perverted the churches, in such a way as to make Americans look at the christian faith and its laws, as more of a set of guidelines, rather than laws. More like flexible rules, than laws with consequences, with the punishment based on the severity of the offense.
In what should be obvious to ‘We the People’, the progressive mainstream media and their allies have hidden, and misconstrued the truth. In reality, The Communist Manifesto, which was published in 1847 by Karl Marx and Frederich Engels, emphasizes throughout how the middle class has exploited the lower class. They promoted communism in society as a classless society that eliminates racial prejudice. They portrayed communism as a way to transcend the superficiality of race, skin color, blood, gender, and so forth. However, under both socialist communism and fascism, it was the largest genocidal ideology or cult in the history of mankind. It sought out people based on skin color, and bloodline, and systematically exterminated tens of millions of human beings.
In contrast, Christians always work to protest against the unfair treatment of the poor, the sick, and those in need. However, in more recent years, many christians have allowed greed to blur the meaning of life. They have allowed idols to distract them from God. They have allowed their busy lives to view the sabbath as an option, rather than a requirement. They have allowed peer influence to corrupt their minds, and their worldly surroundings to corrupt their soul. Today, christianity has become the minority in the world, as the worldly sins permeate our nation, our homes, and yes our places of worship.
That gets us back to CNN’s Chris Cuomo, ‘The View’, the Mainstream Media, and the Progressive Democrats. They ridicule and attack christians “thoughts and prayers” to shooting victims, saying they “mock those who lost loved ones,” but that is because they are not truly being christian. After all, you cannot be christian and openly mock other christians showing their faith. Christianity isn’t something you sign up for. You cannot fill out an application, or ask to join the group. You cannot simply go to church, or call yourself christian, and therefore become christian. WHY???? Because Christianity is more than a group to belong to. It is a way of life. It is a state of mind. Christians are not judgemental. They don’t cast aspersions on others! Instead, Christianity is a number of things. It is someone who professes a belief in Jesus as the Christ, and the teachings of Jesus. But it is better explained by looking at the bible. In fact, in Acts 11:26; 26:28; 1 Peter 4:16, and Acts 11:26, the bible refers to followers of Jesus Christ as Christians, because their behavior, speech, actions, were like Christ. They were “followers of Christ”.
“Christian” is used three times in the New Testament (Acts 11:26; 26:28; 1 Peter 4:16). Followers of Jesus Christ were first called “Christians” in Antioch (Acts 11:26) because their behavior, activity, and speech were like Christ. The word “Christian” literally means, “belonging to the party of Christ” or a “follower of Christ.” The bible also says in 1 John 2:4, 10 , the mark of a true Christian is love for others, and obedience to God’s Word.
Therefore, when CNN’s Cuomo said…
“You mock those who lost loved ones because if you gave it any thought at all you would never walk away from any of these without figuring out a better way to deal with them,” he said. “And prayer? You think leaving it to God is the answer? We pray for strength, we pray for wisdom, for resolve, but we clearly don’t want to act on any of those here, so what are you praying for? We can do better. And we all have to live with doing nothing. The next time is coming. And more and more, you, me, our leaders, we’re all becoming part of the problem. Think and pray on that.”

Regardless of the facts and the truth, the Mainstream Media will continue to demonize President Trump, no matter what he does. They will continue to lie and distort facts, in order to demonize not only the President, but those who support him…ESPECIALLY CHRISTIANS! Furthermore, Democrats have become the biggest threat to the christian people in America. Today’s Democrat Party has sought to silence christians in the public square by utilizing counter protesters, and their militant wing AntiFa. Under President Obama, christians had to fight for their faith in their own businesses and communities. For example, the Obama Justice Department sued businesses in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. and Zubik v. Burwell, as they tried to force them into providing contraception, which went against their christian beliefs. The Obama Administration’s United States Civil Rights Commission said…
“The phrases ‘religious liberty’ and ‘religious freedom’ will stand for nothing except hypocrisy so long as they remain code words for discrimination, intolerance, racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, Christian supremacy or any form of intolerance.”
U.S. Civil Rights Commission under Obama
Therefore, they looked at religious freedom as nothing more than discrimination and intolerance.
Ultimately, democrats view religious freedom as a qualified state, and only acceptable, as long as it doesn’t interfere with “abortion rights”, “gay rights, or other socialist and communist ideological norms and goals.
Democrats and their mainstream media and hollywood allies look at America through the communist lens, where government comes first, and then religion, so long as it doesn’t interfere with government ideological norms. For example, democrats have sought to strip public funding from Christian colleges, which make it nearly impossible for minority and low-income students from attending. That way they can force them to go to more pro-Socialist, and pro-Communist Universities. Democrats have demonized Catholic and Christian schools, tried to deny their tax exempt status, and tried to remove them from the NAACP. In other-words….CONFORM TO SOCIALISM AND COMMUNISM, OR SUFFER THE DEMOCRAT PARTY WRATH!
Democrats have censored pastors’ sermons, fired public officials because of what they wrote in a Bible study, and punished bakers, florists, and wedding photographers with massive fines, simply for following their faith, within their own, privately owned businesses. Democrats tell christians that they can practice their faith quietly within the their home and church, but not anywhere that might influence your friends, neighbors, or the public. Similar to what has happened to nations, as they lost their freedoms to the evil communist ideology.
Today, democrats have turned christians into criminals, while they fight for the right of felons (the real criminals) to vote in elections.
President Trump has met with over 30 religious leaders from across the country to discuss religious freedom issues, and the reaction from the left….They demonized him, and ridiculed christians for supporting him. However, democrats choose to ignore the fact that President Trump has done more for the christian community, more for the jewish community, than ANY PRESIDENT IN HISTORY! President Trump has moved our embassy to Jerusalem, re-established a strong relationship with Israel, reconfirmed his commitment to protecting the rights of pastors to speak freely from the pulpit, discussed international religious freedom and that God has blessed the United States of America in order that we can be a blessing to all nations, and fought for the ‘right to life’.
Democrats try to pervert truth and reality, where in truth, it is the democrats, who have sought to crush christians, Christianity, Judaism, and God. In contrast, President Trump has actively sought to fortify religious freedom.
Therefore, although the progressive-left socialists, and communist democrats try to act as the moral authority, while demonizing President Trump, and all those who follow him, Americans would do good to remember the facts. President Trump is fighting for a free nation, based on laws and the constitution, which protects christians right to believe and practice their faith, whereas it is the democrats who seek to criminalize christianity and God, while making ‘government’ the nations false idol.
