One of the first acts by Democrats this year was their decision to remove a 181-year-old restriction on wearing religious headgear on the House floor, they said to accommodate their newly-elected female Muslim Democrats.
Now, ironically this week, the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives has drafted a new committee rules package that is set to be approved this week. They proposed a new rule, which would strike or eliminate the phrase, “So help me God,” from the oath that witnesses take when they testify before the House Committee on Natural Resources.
Fox News revealed that the committee’s new draft showed that the phrase “So help me God” was placed in red brackets, indicating that the words are slated to be eliminated.
If the phrase is cut, the House Committee on Natural Resources would ask witnesses to state…
“Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?”
Therefore, they will eliminate “So help me God”, and replace it with “under penalty of law”. Why? Ultimately, as the Democrat Party has already shifted from Liberal to Progressive, Progressive to Socialist, and now Socialist to full blown Marxist, they are left with no option but to embrace full and complete Marxist thought and ideology! Furthermore, in order to fully implement their communist ideals, they first need to divide the nation, men against women, the rich against the poor, blacks against whites, Hispanics against non-Hispanics, old against the young, Christians against non-Christians, Americans against illegals, and all while removing God and destroying all semblances of his name and faith within our nation!
House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney of Wyoming was taken back with Democrats eliminating God from the oath, as she said…
“It is incredible, but not surprising, that the Democrats would try to remove God from committee proceedings in one of their first acts in the majority. They really have become the party of Karl Marx.”
Arizona Democrat Rep. Raúl Grijalva is chairing the committee that is striking God completely out of the oath, but he, along with his fellow Democrats didn’t stop there! Also, the Democrats have replaced all gender-specific pronouns like “his” and “her” with “their,” and substitutes committee “Chairman” for “Chair” in committee documents. It is yet another attempt to destroy all aspects of the Christian faith in America, and replace it with the worship of government.
Some have questioned why the Democrats have so warmly embraced the Muslim religion, in a time when they are seeking to destroy American Christianity, but upon closer examination, the alliance is purely political and ideological! In truth, the Marxists, Fascists, and Muslims all have warm and mutually shared aims! For example…
- Marxists and Muslims both believe in the government having ultimate power and control over their people!
- Marxists and Muslims both need to and strive for the eradication of Christianity and God!
- Marxist and Muslims both believe that their nations people should worship government, and although Marxists believe that the worship should be the government alone, Muslims believe that the government should be a Theistic powerhouse and a branch of religious power, rather than secular power!
The blatant aim of Democrats to destroy Christians and Christianity is not new to their Party and leadership. After all, in 2012, they saw a major controversy explode at the Democratic National Convention, over an attempt to restore the reference to God and recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Democrats saw the idea as “deplorable”, and at odds with their Party’s aims!
Also, the Democratic Party not only has multiple anti-Semitic leaders within their Party and Congressional ranks but they defend those anti-Semites. For example, they defended Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN), as she has not only embraced racism and hate, but she has defended groups who openly call for the death of gays and Jews! In addition, Representative Ilhan Omar attacked the pro-Life Catholic Covington high school boys last week, despite video evidence, showing the boys were not only innocent of the accusations, but they were the targets of racism and hate by the Black Israelite group who hurled racist and vile comments about the children! Omar has also been exposed by the Daily Caller News Foundation, as they uncovered anti-Semitic ties that “run deeper than previously known.” In fact, they reported that…
“Tlaib is a member of the Facebook group ‘Palestinian American Congress,’ where members often demonize Jews,” the investigation revealed. “The group’s founder, Palestinian activist Maher Abdel-qader, was a key fundraiser for Tlaib and organized campaign events for her around the country.”
One year ago, Abdel-qader posted an online video that they showed…
“claimed Jews aren’t actually Jewish, and invented their historical claim to Israel and secretly control the media. The video, which described Jews as ‘satanic,’ also questioned whether 6 million Jews actually died in the Holocaust.”
The Democrats war on Christianity and Jews didn’t begin recently though! In fact, it goes back decades. Their first big break in their war on ‘God’ began on June 25th, 1962. The United States Supreme Court decided in Engel v. Vitale that a prayer approved by the New York Board of Regents for use in schools violated the First Amendment by constituting an establishment of religion. It was one of the first main dominoes that they knocked over, as subsequent dominos began falling quickly after that!
The next year, in Abington School District v. Schempp, the Supreme Court removed bible readings from the public schools, citing it as being another First Amendment violation. Over the next 50 plus years, Democrats waged a war against Christians and God, by trying to remove all faith-based symbols and language from government buildings, federal and state-owned properties, and within educational institutions! In other words, the eradication of God from language, and visible sight!
Then in 2016, the war was heated up, as the Obama Administration accelerated the war! In fact, John Podesta, who worked for President Obama, and is currently the Chair and Counselor of the Center for American Progress (CAP), a left-wing think tank in Washington, D.C. Within that organization, they organize and promote violent protests throughout the United States, as they claim to be fighting against those they label white supremacists. They are also an organization who works diligently to label President Trump, Trump supporters, Christians and any ideology or cause the Democratic Party deems politically incorrect or conflicts with their definition of social justice.
Democrat allies within the Mainstream Media have also helped to wage war on Christians, Christianity, and God. For example, after a shooting in California in November, Conservative Christians issued their thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families. CNN’s Chris Cuomo 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 an atheist, anti-Christian, and 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 Marxist or Communist philosophy is that the two are diametrically opposed to one another. For example, under communism, Christianity is strictly forbidden. But instead, it is replaced with the worship of a secularistic and materialistic government. 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 an absolute moral order. That is one of the reasons that under both Fascist based Socialism, and Communist based Socialism, they both 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 Marxist Communism, Marxist Socialism, Fascist Socialism, and Progressivism… the end justifies the means.
Interestingly, on the flip side 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 and the ultimate in evil! 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, those commandments are intertwined within the Constitution of the United States, and all the laws contained within. Therefore, under the 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 now Marxist Democrats and their Mainstream Media allies have hidden and misconstrued the truth. In reality, The Communist Manifesto, which was published in 1847 by Karl Marx and Frederich Engels, emphasizes how the middle class has exploited the lower classes. 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 Communist and Fascist based Socialism, 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, especially Jews and Christians!
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, even our places of worship.
That gets us back to CNN’s Chris Cuomo, ‘The View’, the Mainstream Media, and the now Marxist 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, but instead, loyal Marxists, blinded by hate, sin, and greed! After all, you cannot be Christian and openly mock other Christians showing their faith, at least if you are truly a Christian! 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.
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, as they work to eradicate ‘God’ from American culture!
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. Under the Obama Administration, the 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 attack God and deem religious freedom as nothing more than discrimination and intolerance. They see religious freedom as a qualified state, and only acceptable, as long as it doesn’t interfere with their Marxist ideology and norms like “abortion rights”, “gay rights, or other socialist and communist ideological norms and goals. In other words, for Marxists, God and Christianity is a disease that must be eradicated across our nation!
Democrats and their Mainstream Media and Hollywood allies look at America through a Marxist lens, where government power comes first, and where religion has no place! 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’S 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. They have attacked and tried to bring down Hobby Lobby and Chic Fil A for following their Christian faith, and all while attacking them as racists who espouse hate! Democrats tell Christians that they can practice their faith quietly within their home and church, but not anywhere that might influence their friends, neighbors, or the public.
Democrats have turned Christians into criminals, while they fight for the right of felons (the real criminals) to vote in elections. Democrats have been erasing God from our nation while embracing racist and radical Muslims who fight for the elimination of Jews, and for the suppression of women and for female genital mutilation! Democrats even passed laws in California and New York that allows for last-minute abortions in the babies ninth month of pregnancy, and up to the moment of birth!
Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) celebrated the late-term abortion law by lighting up government buildings including the World Trade Center in pink, setting Christians back, as they couldn’t believe anyone would celebrate infanticide! Cuomo responded by stating…
“The Catholic Church doesn’t believe in a woman’s right to choose. Yes, I understand their religious view. But I’m not here to legislate religion.”
Similar laws that expand abortion access and give protections to fully developed babies have already been stripped away in New Mexico, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Washington State! Even today Virginia nearly passed a bill that would allow women to abort fully developed babies that could live outside of the womb, within seconds of their being born into the world and taking their first breath! Fortunately, Republicans were able to block its passage…BUT BARELY! In fact, it failed along a straight party-line vote with every Democrat voting for the bill, and every Republican voting against the bill! Then, the Democrat lawmaker who proposed the bill stood up and lectured the Virginia House of Delegates on why Infanticide should be legal…
Meanwhile, Governor Ralph Northam (D-VA) endorsed killing the baby post-delivery, stating allowing the baby to live is up to the mother and doctors!
Today, Democrats continue to crush constitutional religious liberties in the name of truth, justice, and freedom! They attack President Trump, as an example of hate and intolerance, as he fights for the good of all Americans! 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’.
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.
The Democrats would do good to read the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, which states…
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
This is why political correctness is not only the enemy of free speech, it is also a direct assault on religious freedom because it prohibits “the free exercise thereof” and thus, the 1st Amendment of the Constitution.
Under the Obama administration, the Democratic Party forced taxpayers to fund abortions, even if it violated their conscience. This is another example of President Obama and the other left-wing Democrats stripping American Christians of their religious freedom. There can be no doubt that Obama and the Democratic Party members knew that all practicing Christians are pro-life when they passed that legislation.
The Democratic politicians also threatened to deny Christian schools their tax-exempt status and their accreditation. Also, although they were unsuccessful in seeking to remove all Christian and Catholic colleges from the NCAA, they did gain traction in controlling the NFL, creating a platform for them to attack traditional American Judeo-Christian heritage as well as showing disrespect towards the American flag, which disrespects the brave soldiers who fought and sacrificed their own lives to give all Americans the freedoms that the Democrats so whole-heartedly want to destroy!
Ironically, Democrats embrace themselves as the Party of George Washington, Reverand Martin Luther King Jr., William Wilberforce, and Harriet Tubman, who all made their impact on society based on, and because of their Christian faith! Yet, they hypocritically preach to Republicans that they are the Party of these great reformers, while simultaneously trampling on and destroying Christianity using Marxist political correctness!
Meanwhile, although they attack President Donald Trump as a racist, xenophobe, and a sexist, he continues to promote and support the biblical teachings of equality, justice, and fairness at every turn! In fact, President Trump reconfirmed his commitment to protecting the rights of pastors to speak freely from the pulpit, Trump closed by saying…
“Under my leadership, this will all change. The religious freedom of Americans will be protected and strengthened.”
Today, while Democrats attack God and the institutions of the Christian faith, they would do good to look at the United States motto “In God We Trust”, established in 1956, which was signed into law by President Eisenhower. Regardless, Democrats are on a mission to remove God and his biblical teachings from our American nation, regardless of the fact that we were founded on religious tolerance! A platform that made America the greatest nation on earth!
Never-the-less, as the world and now our nation seems to be in a downward spiral into chaos, it seems only appropriate to question why the Democrats can embrace the Muslim religion which has a long and bloody history of hate, anti-Semitism, racism, discrimination, and vicious intolerance, brought down on all who not only dare oppose or question their beliefs, but those who refuse to subscribe to their radical ideology! Why do the Democrats embrace Marxist Socialism when the ideology strategically discriminates and strips the rights and freedoms of the very people of whom they claim to be fighting for? Sadly, the answer is much more simple than most want to believe and can be summed up with just a few short words…POWER AND GREED!
