Whether it’s CNN telling Christians or the NYT telling progs, the message is the same: Christians have to get with the program; socialism trumps principles.
CNN is at the vanguard of a progressive jihad to drive Christian voters away from Trump. CNN’s two openly gay (one married) hosts, Don Lemon and Anderson Cooper, are taking part in lecturing Christians that they have no business voting for or supporting Trump. On Lemon’s panel, one panelist accused all Christians who support Trump as having “made a deal with the devil.” On Cooper, Charlie Sykes called it “stunning” and “remarkable” that Christians would support Trump, apparently preferring that they would have simply wasted their vote.
As to Cooper and Lemon, I wonder if either of these two have ever opened a Bible, let alone spent more than a two minute block of time with a Christian? If so, they might learn that average Christians see their religion and their freedom of conscience as under an existential assault not seen since the time of the birth of socialism in the French Revolution. And none of that is coming from Trump or the right.
Most recently was Anthony Kennedy’s torrid, unconscionable. and blatantly unconstitutional act judicially amending our Constitution to proclaim a constitutional right to gay marriage. Before that was the Obama DOJ decision to unconscionably and unconstitutionally rewrite the Civil Rights Act of 1964, establishing new laws that create “gay rights” and that allow for the prosecution of Christians in the public square who do not acquiesce. At the same time was the extra-constitutional act by HHS to establish as law that all Christians purchasing health insurance must not merely purchase, but also effectively underwrite birth control and abortifacients. And then of course there is the prog effort, ongoing for well over a century, to act in loco parentis, beginning in kindergarten, to promote ethics and morality free normalization of sex, abortion and abnormal sex in America.
As to Sykes, what he is arguing for is Christians to act so dogmatically that they could not pull the lever for anyone other than one of the twelve disciples, thus handing political power to the Christian’s persecutors. He wants to transfer his personal animus towards Trump onto Christians generally. [Read more…]
