The New Totalitarianism - Oct 14

I want to continue where I left off in my last two posts. Whether it be the secular-progressives or jihad-committed Muslims, there is a strong move towards despotism today. Genuine free speech, one that allows a conservative and a Bible-believing viewpoint is dead in the water. The art of academic debate is dead, buried and eulogized as well. 9/11 represents a turning point to be sure, but does it really matter exactly when anti-Americanism came into vogue? If there's one thing we must do, we must get rid of this incessant navel-gazing and self-loathing. We need to get our groove back! America and the West has had her share of enemies. Always have and always will. The key difference between now and then is that Americans believed in themselves. Not only did they believe that America was good for Americans, but good for the world. To be sure, Americans know full well their country isn't perfect. God knows it isn't. But this nonsense about '9/11 was an inside job' and 'Bush started this war' has to go. It is not adding one iota of good to our fight to remain free. Indeed, it is sapping our morale while aiding and abetting the enemy.

The greatest danger we face right now is Islam, in particular the violent imposition of a world-wide caliphate under Sharia law. In other words, say goodbye to the Constitution and British-based law. Let there be no mistake, there will be no place for Christians in this anti-utopia. In places where Islam is already predominant the situation will deteriorate. In Israel, Arab Christians are at the forefront of this vicious persecution. It already may be too late for this religious minority under siege. The UN gives Palestinian Christians the 'Darfur' treatment as do the feminists and other human rights groups. They are persona non grata as far as these 'progressives' are concerned. Be it a deliberate act of blindness, ignorance or hypocrisy, the new totalitarians are very much in the PC camp.

Old Habits Die Hard Dep't: Putin being relieved of the Russian presidency will matter little. As Prime Minister, Mr. Putin will still be very much 'The Man' in Mother Russia.

So do we give up? No! So long as the church is still here we can work for good. While missionaries in India face persecution, many are still finding hope in it's slums.
