USA Today: You Darned Christians Are Too Threatening To Keep Around

Now, just imagine the USA Today allowing an opinion piece like this about Muslims. Can’t do it, can you?

Christian nationalism is a threat, and not just from Capitol attackers invoking Jesus
Christian nationalists inside our government are working quietly to take America for Jesus. They are the more resilient danger to religious pluralism.

After a portion of the mob entered the Senate chamber on Jan. 6, a handful of men mounted the podium. One of them lifted his hands and cried out, “Jesus Christ, we invoke your name. Amen.” Then Jacob Chansley, sometimes called the “QAnon Shaman,” took his bullhorn and announced gratitude to God for being able to “send a message to all the tyrants, the communists, and the globalists that this is our nation, not theirs.”Bare-chested to expose his white supremacist tattoos, he had paused briefly to remove his Viking-inspired horned headdress and cap — presumably to assume a properly humble posture as he claimed the United States for himself and his fellow-believers.

The violence was roundly condemned, if a bit mealy-mouthed in certain quarters. People spoke of the criminal threat against members of Congress, staffers and police. They lamented the violation of sacred civic space and democratic norms (the few we have left). Many were especially dismayed to find police, veterans and elected officials among the rioters — individuals who had taken oaths to serve and protect the nation.

It is easy to protest when white Christian nationalism turns violent. Within the chorus of critics, however, are a substantial number of Christians who plan to take the country for Jesus another way. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Missouri, a leader of the misinformation campaign that led people to believe (falsely) that the presidential election was stolen, is among them.

That keeps going on and on and on, heaping scorn and abuse on Christians, attempting to elevate their Constitutionally allowed beliefs to the level of threats that need to be shut down, no matter if you are simply a person who just goes to church every Sunday. Why? Because belief in religion, more specifically Christianity, interferes with the Progressives ability to have everyone worship the State. They’ve been going after Christianity since the 70’s, and, since they couldn’t destroy it then, then infiltrated it to get it to change from the inside. This is how we get gay marriage in churches, teaching people to give up their freedom to Government, and a Pope who spends more time on Social Justice than opposing abortion on demand.

But, it’s not moving fast enough, so, it’s back to attempting to destroy organized religion (no, not Islam, they are Useful Idiots for Progressives at this time), so, the Mostly Peaceful Capitol Protest is a good excuse, along with Republicans who are devout. 1st Amendment? When do the Progressives really care about the Constitution if it interferes?

The idea to start is to make them Enemies Of The State

Enemies of the State vs. Enemies of the People

I didn’t declare war on the establishment; it declared war on me.

It declared war on me when it supported energy policies that could enrich Saudi Arabia and Russia and would cost me more money at the gas pump or on my power bill.

It declared war on me when it told me my ideas weren’t worthy of debate and discussion or that they were even so dangerous they couldn’t be shared publicly.

It declared war on me when it used the police powers of the FBI and CIA to first spy on a presidential candidate and then worked to undermine the administration of that candidate after he was elected.

It declared war on me when it told me my religious beliefs did not deserve the protection of the First Amendment.

Frank Miele of Real Clear Politics has many more lines of “It declared war on me”

This “guilt by labeling” is the antithesis of fair play or justice. It is a convenient mechanism for the ruling class to herd people into identity clusters so that individual rights can be supplanted by group responsibility. If this reminds you of China’s Cultural Revolution, you are not wrong. The ruling class wants you to conform, confirm and comply. If you step outside the lines, be prepared to be shamed, silenced and ostracized.

In the narrow context, USA Today has decided that all Christians are “Guilt by labeling”, and must be Cancelled. In the broader context

No wonder the people are starting to rise up and rebel against the plutocracy. It’s not “We the Oligarchs” who are the source of power in the Constitution, but “We the People,” yet the ruling establishment has forgotten that. If people like Donald Trump and Douglass Mackey are deemed to be “enemies of the state,” then those who would suppress them and their freedoms must be considered “enemies of the people.”

If these Stateists think christians will sit back and take it, they could be in for a rude awakening, and the same goes with thinking Conservatives will sit there and take it.

    Abortion is legal under Jewish law and is legal under Israeli law
    It is forbidden under Muslim religious law it is not illegal under bhufhidt law
    Shouldn’t their be religious freedom on this issue ?
    In the bible it days the value of a fetus is 2 shekels about 6 dollars

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    The excitable Russia Teach is being overly dramatic. The concern is for Christian Nationalism, not Christianity (which is protected by our First Amendment). Christian Nationalism is like White Nationalism, that is, advocating a homeland for a particular group. According to the Constitution the US cannot establish a state religion.

    First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; …

    Speaking in his official capacity as attorney general of Missouri in 2017, (now Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO)), proclaimed at a “Pastors and Pews” meeting that their charge is to “take the lordship of Christ, that message, into the public realm and to seek the obedience of the nations — of our nation… to influence our society, and even more than that, to transform our society to reflect the gospel truth and lordship of Jesus Christ.”

    Imagine if a Muslim politician had said this but substituted Muhammad and Allah…

    The overrepresentation of evangelical Christian conservatives at the DC riot was concerning.

    But not all Christians are dangerous any more than all Muslims are dangerous. The problem is with zealots.

    Anyway, if excitable Russia Teach thinks America will accept a conservative Christian state religion, he’s mistaken.

      Why not do your own research, Dowd, learn the truth for yourself, and be Right?

        That’s why he cannot be taken seriously and should be mocked at every chance.

      Jeff,
      I don’t know if you are aware, but the Dems/communist have torn up the Constitution. They have violated almost every aspect of the document and care little for our rights. It is time to secede. Their is nothing that binds us together, no common cause.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        deviant7134,

        How could the Dems have torn up the Constitution? The uber-conservative Supreme Court determines what is and isn’t constitutional.

        You can leave America at any time.

        No common cause? How about a better, more equitable life for all Americans?

        It was YOUR people who stormed and ransacked the US Capitol in a failed attempt to overturn the election that Trump lost. We understand you believe that Trump won the election and you think that justifies violent revolution and overthrowing the US government.

  3. The Xiden Junta says:

    A very peaceful way to settle out irreconcilable differences, david7134 but the left will never ever let us do that. They want it all and if it means killing millions of us I think they prefer that scenario. \Listen to the comments about “treason” and “insurrection” bandied about by the neocommunists and you will understand what they want is retribution, reparations and revenge and will settle for nothing less. Just look how Hairy and Elwood parrot the Big Lie about the mini riot of 1/6 whilst ignoring (if not denying) the burning of 26 cities (still going on though blacked out by media) and murders for 10 months now.

    To the neocommunists there is no negotiation. As Daniel Greenfield explained: “Inside of a month, Democrats had redefined riots and election challenges from the highest form of patriotism to an attack on democracy. And by “democracy,” they mean the Democrat Party.

    Popular leaders don’t take their false oaths of office in a deserted city surrounded by barbed wire and military checkpoints manned by 25,000 troops. Nor do they engage in show trials of their predecessors or unroll massive efforts to surveil, arrest, and silence their opponents.

    That’s not the stuff of healing, but it is how you unite a country at gunpoint under your rule.

    That or the show trials wrap up before they get around to mandating that all future elections take place at Democrat campaign offices preceded by poll tests about equity and white privilege.

    Meanwhile the Democrat media went from writing sympathetic pieces about BLM lawyers throwing Molotov cocktails at the police to demanding a thorough purge of every single person who had ever questioned the idea that Joe Biden might not be the most popular politician ever.”

    Representative government works only as long as the constituent groups want to achieve the same ends but disagree on the means. Once these groups want incompatible ends, the good faith which representative government requires vanishes.

    If you’re sharing a car with another person and you agree that you want to get to the same destination, you may disagree about the best route to take and there is no serious problem. If the two occupants of the car want to go in opposite directions, there can be no cooperation and no journey.

    And there can be no “secession” only war and blood will end this. Or we can capitulate to the Jackbooted oppressors and end the Republic through acquiescence. Our choice then being the camps or the firing squad.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Kye typed: Popular leaders don’t take their false oaths of office in a deserted city surrounded by barbed wire and military checkpoints manned by 25,000 troops.

      In fact it was a perfectly legal oath of office and the city was blocked off because of the bloody attempted overthrow of the US government and threats of more violence. Now, you guys want all the violent criminals let go as if nothing happened. That’s what you call privilege!!

      Mr Biden received more votes than any politician in American history, and that’s popular enough to become president.

      You don’t get your way and now advocate a bloody civil war. Good luck.

  4. The Xiden Junta says:

    I can’t believe that Elwood still buys that stupid trope that Xiden received more votes than any other politician in American history. Here’s a guy so stupid he locked himself in his basement instead of campaigning and when he did show up it was to a crowd of dozens. He failed his entire 47 year career to ever accomplish anything in government and was several times beaten by other Demofascist candidates in the primaries INCLUDING this time when the DNC had to force Bernie out who was winning.

    The Demofascists had to lie, cheat and steal to even come up with the phony votes that to this day WILL NOT CONFIRM.

    Are you really stating that this senile con man soiling his Depends really got more votes than Obummer, the Great Black Hope? Then you’re more of a fool than we have given you credit for. You pigs stole the election and now you’re destroying the Republic.

    That’s why they have occupied DC with troops for his “swearing in”. Because he’s so fukn popular?

    The Demofascists are planning something BIG. That’s why our nations Capitol is an armed camp.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      We can’t believe Kye still believes that Donald Trump won the election. You and your kind tried to steal the election and got busted. Man up and move on.

      Kye, you’ve fallen and can’t get up. Find a trusted and normal friend and let them talk you off the ledge.

      You don’t like Democratic policies. We get it. But trump lost the election, then lost the Senate for the GOP. Get busy livin’ or get busy dyin’!

  5. The Xiden Junta says:

    You and your entire party of anti American neofascists are liars. The fact that you refuse to recount the e=lection PROVES beyond a doubt you cheated.

    Chairman Xiden is a phony usurper and a banana republic despot. Every order he’s given is illegal and the fact you faggots have to keep DC in a lockdown, fenced off from the “republic” it rules shows how afraid of us you are.

    Elwood, 80 million Americans and another 70 million of their families call you a fukin liar.

    Your new dictator is eliminating jobs and starting wars just like you want. Happy black history month. Eek, White people!

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Kye,

      You’re delusional.

      Georgia had their initial count and two recounts. Mr Trump lost each time. The DOJ investigations, as announced by Trump-loyalist, AG William Barr, found no massive fraud. Barr told trump he lost. No court case recognized any credible evidence. So Mr Trump lost. Your PROOF that Trump won doesn’t exist.

      Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin are ALL under GOP legislative control and determine the electoral laws. They ALL certified that Trump lost.

      You are delusional if you genuinely believe that Trump won the election. He did not. He lost. There was no significant fraud. Trump lost. More people voted for the other guy, which means Trump lost.

      Every sane American calls you, Trump and your new leader, Saint Marjorie Taylor Greene, fukin liars.

      According to the law, every order President Biden has given is legal. You do believe in the rule of law, don’t you”

      IF you really believe the election was a communist coup, then you have no choice but to pick up your gun and take back the country. Good luck. Man up. Attack!!!

      You’re delusional. Seek help immediately.
