My Rant in Defense of US Christian Heritage

News item below is from the Religion Clause blog (link on my blogroll, right side of home page here)

India's High Court Permits Churches To Aid Christian Victims In Orissa

As previously reported, last December six Christian churches in the Indian state of Orissa were attacked and burned by Hindu extremists. Homes were also destroyed.Yesterday's Calcutta Telegraph reports on subsequent developments. In January, after the rioting and arson, Orissa's district collector ruled that no charitable or religious organization could carry out relief work in the area, arguing that relief groups would create further tension by focusing their aid only on a particular community. The Orissa High Court refused to intervene, so the archbishop of Cuttack-Bhubaneswar, Raphael Cheenath, appealed to India's Supreme CourYesterday in Cheenath v. Union of India & Ors., the Supreme Court overturned the ban so church groups can now assist Christian victims of the rioting and arson.

This illustrates why American Christians and Jews (who coexist peacefuly) need to be making the babies and why we need controlled immigration. If the foreign religious minorities expand here by higher birthrates --and start demanding their traditions here as they are doing in Europe especially, with their Islamic polygamy, e.g. --or just bringing their bigotry and chronic terrorism and selfish, poverty-enabling attitudes to America (Hinduism), we are in deep trouble.

Consider what this article tells you about these Hindus: Karma means you should endure whatever situation you are in --and not help others who are enduring their Karma. Thus India has huge areas and cities of squalor in the midst of a bustling economy that make our slums look like Snob Hill. These officials saw no reason to help the persecuted Christians in their midst. Thanks to the Hindus' terrorism, the Christians should just have to suffer their Karma. The Hindus of the courts would transcendentally meditate above the need and injustice around them.

There is no reason to apologize or forgive or make amends, either, in Hinduism. One of my online pen pals is an attorney from India who hasn't spoken to his mother or his sister-in-law for at least 15 years though they live in the same house --and they pile the roach and vermin infested goods into his room --and he says nothing to them --because he is rising above the whole thing.

America needs to recognize what is good about her religious underpinnings and preserve them, respect them, and honor them as a good heritage (not establish them or deny others their freedoms.)

As philosopher deToqueville of France put it in the 19th c. --"America is great because she is good --with secret of her goodness lying in her churches with pulpits aflame with righteousness -if she ceases to be good, she will cease to be great."

A blogger at the Religion Clause site demonstrates the inability to see any difference between good and evil in the morals department--thus, what is wrong with polygamy? he wonders. A lot is wrong with polygamy. Do we have to try everything out and test it in order to know what our Hebrew and Christian ancestors could see plainly a long time ago?

Someday, we'll realize, when we are all covered with sores of the flesh-eating bacteria from San Francisco gay life (sores predicted in Revelation) --and the HPV throat cancer of oral sex --when we all have loved ones dying of AIDS because they got into homosexual lifestyle and didn't know they had it until it was too late to sustain them with drugs --and because more and more who ARE sustained will continue to spread HIV/AIDS to guys like L. Craig in public bathrooms, taking it home to wives who infect their babies --and to men in youth trying homosexuality thinking it's now safe and acceptable and so prevalent --and because they didn't have dads to make them proud to be men in every normal sense of the word.

When we finally figure it out, we'll once again make sodomy illegal as harmful to public health and morals--if we survive the wrath of God to come for our unbelief and our unrepented immorality, for calling good evil, and evil, good. And perhaps we'll also figure out that God DOES exist --and He IS a God of morality --just as the Bible says--just as the majority in the once greatest nation on earth used to believe.

"God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and have eternal life."--the Bible

I read his book Democracy in America two months ago, but I didn't finish. I'm trying to reread that book in my spare time.

Since we are just posting random links here without interacting with the topic, I'll post a link to a professional philosopher of religion in answer to your link of popular anti-Christian apologetics of unestablished questionable scholarship.

"Biblical nonsense," isn't that an oxymoron?

Barb said...

I think so, Yank!

RighteoussuoethgiR said...

The oxy-morons are the ones who believe the nonsense in the bible.

God bless you Barb!

Hey, Lonnie, I saw your other comment on the Power Team posts of a year ago.

You were on a power team? You aren't a single guy, are you? I'm not looking for myself....(seeing as I have a husband.)

Drop by the church some day! I wonder if you are the Maryland blogger on my stat meter...?

Aside from evangelizing to the people who are unbelievers in this world, one of the biggest reasons for the Church to exist, in my opinion, is to help the suffering of people, regardless of beliefs.

One of the highest responsibilities of government and courts is to protect those who are harmed and punish those who do the harm.

It seems the people in this part of India have failed in their highest duty of government and even tried to stop the Church from assisting those who were harmed and needed a hand.

I'm not going to address the social ills in our society because you know where I stand on those issues.

Barb said...

Thank you all for participating.

Now, Steve, about that unfinished bio on your blog. I don't call it "self-indulgent." It was interesting. You had Mud-rake's sympathetic attention. Ready to weep for your oppressive upbringing! :(

You were about to segue into your clash with reality--or something like that...

I'm pretty tired of talking about politics and religion at the moment except to drop a zinger now and again.
