The Theology Of The Left

February 25, 2012 7:32 am 0 comments

“It’s not about you. It’s not about your quality of life. It’s not about your jobs. It’s about some phony ideal, some phony theology.  Oh, not a theology based on the Bible. A different theology.”

Amen Senator.  Rick Santorum delivered some shock and awe while addressing the Tea Party last Saturday in Columbus, Ohio.  The Obama administration reacted with condescending disapproval that Senator Santorum would suggest that the President’s agenda could be motivated by an un-biblical theology.  Obama is a Christian, of course, they said.  Regardless of the personal religious identification of Mr. Barack Obama, the ideology that he and other Progressives cling to is founded on the assumptions of the Theology of the Left.

The Theology of the Left is secular and humanist.  It rejects God and instead puts its faith in man.  Because of this, the Left finds itself in conflict with the historic theology of our nation, Christianity.  Christianity teaches that human beings are sinful and selfish and will only be perfected in heaven.  Christianity recognizes that capitalism works because overall, humans can be relied on to act in their own self-interest.  The Left works endlessly to eradicate “greed”, mold people to their idea of perfection, and create a heavenly society on earth (i.e. Utopia).  This is what John Lennon’s “Imagine” was all about.  Christians put their faith and hope in Christ.  Leftists put their faith and hope in humans, especially in elite Progressive academics, media personalities, politicians, and bureaucrats.  They believe these “enlightened” humans will lead us away from the selfishness of capitalist society toward a peaceful, equal, and benevolent society by implementing a sufficient amount of government regulation and control.  Christianity recognizes that every individual is given free will by God.  The Left wants a society where bureaucrats have the power to give and revoke freewill as they see fit.  Christians are wary of high taxes and too many regulations because they recognize that humans are easily corrupted by power.  Leftist Progressives, demand that we “Change” and “Progress” our society from one founded on individual free will, individual responsibility, and limited government to an ever more oppressive and secular State.

Christian faith is based on the historical records of martyred eyewitnesses.  Leftism requires faith in the power of collective government to bring peace and justice.  This faith is blind to the injustice, poverty, abduction, torture, and murder that Leftist governments have perpetrated over the last 100 years.  Socialism and communism (international and national) is unrestrained Leftism in practice.  History maintains a clear record of the atrocities of the Soviets in Russia, Mao’s Red China, the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nazi) in Germany, and the Communists in Cuba, North Korean, and Cambodia.  The faith of the Left must be very strong indeed.

As the Administration disdainfully dismisses the allegation that President Obama and the Progressive movement have anything other than Christian principles as their foundation, it is important to pause and consider.  Progressivism is not about you, your quality of life, or your job.  It is about their plan for society and the Theology of the Left.

    Loyalty and Enmity: Parallels between Islam and the Mafia

    Editor’s note: The following is Part Two of a three-part series examining the many parallels between Islam and the mafia following Bill Maher’s recent exclamation that Islam is “the only religion that acts like the mafia, that will f***ing kill you if you say the wrong thing, draw the wrong picture, or write the wrong book.” Click here for Part One.

    Death to Traitors (AKA “Apostates”)

    Once a Mafioso takes the oath of loyalty to the mafia—including the Omertà code of silence and secrecy—trying to leave the “family” is instantaneously seen as a betrayal and therefore punishable by death. Any family member, great or small, is given authority to kill the traitor, the “turncoat.”

    ‘LGBT’: The ‘T’ Is For Tyranny

    Tranny tyranny. Strike that. “LGBT” tyranny. Lesbian, gay, bisexual tyranny. That, generally speaking, is what’s on display in Houston right now. But trust me: Unlike Vegas, what happens in Houston will, most definitely, not stay in Houston – not if Democrats continue to have their way.

    Houstonians elected themselves, as mayor, an extremist lesbian Democrat (but I repeat myself). She quickly, and quite naturally, took to doing what extremist lesbian Democrats do. Annise Parker is her name, and spreading political Ebola is her game. That and trampling the U.S. Constitution. As you’ve likely heard, Parker’s office has illegally subpoenaed the sermons and privileged communications of a number of Christian pastors who vocally opposed the city’s ironically branded “Equal Rights Ordinance” (aka, the Houston Bathroom Bill).

    Muhammad and Islam’s Sex Slaves

    Once again, Islamic State Muslims are pointing to Islam in order to justify what the civilized world counts as atrocities.

    According to an October 13 report in the Telegraph,

    Islamic State jihadists have given detailed theological reasons justifying why they have taken thousands of women from the Iraqi Yazidi minority and sold them into sex slavery.

    A new article in the Islamic State English-language online magazine Dabiq not only admits the practice but justifies it according to the theological rulings of early Islam.

    “After capture, the Yazidi women and children were then divided according to the Sharia amongst the fighters of the Islamic State who participated,” the article says.

    Texas Water Pump Builder, Gator Pumps, Is Helping Panama’s Rice Farmers

    Changing weather patterns and unusually dry conditions are having a serious impact on rice and sugar cane production in Central America and El Niño year is certainly living up to its reputation. The continuing delay in rainfall will undoubtedly reduce the yield and quality of this year’s rice and sugar cane crops in several areas of Central America. When combined with an equally harsh La Niña winter, perhaps the greatest impact will be within the important bridge countries that connect [...]
