12/30/2005 - James WhiteThis article by David Kupelian (hat tip: Nina) touches on some very important issues regarding the shameless propoganda coming out of Hollywood in the form of Brokeback Mountain. It is well worth the read. Add to this well written and insightful article the fact that most "evangelicals" could not explain the why of the Bible's prohibition of homosexuality (let alone the outrageous concept of "gay marriage" which is in and of itself as coherent a term as "dark light") and you can see we have a lot of hard work to do in the future. The day is coming when even this brief note I am posting right now will be considered "hate speech" and will be censured. Mark it down, it will happen---unless God grants repentance, or brings such utter judgment there is not enough left of the culture to worry about such arcane things as "free speech" to begin with.
The Secularist Jihad and Christian Warfare
12/05/2005 - James WhiteThe pressure is neither subtle nor hidden, but it is all pervasive. If you believe Jesus Christ lives, that as the second Person of the Trinity, the eternal Son, He entered into creation itself a few hundred generations ago in Israel, lived and died and rose again, and rules and reigns in your heart through His Spirit, joining you to a supernatural body of fellow believers all across the world and the ages, you had better keep your mouth shut about it in public places. That is the message of the Secularist Jihad sweeping across Western society. Hiding behind the term "tolerance" and constantly speaking about "not offending" (well, offending anyone but Christians, anyway), the forces of secularism have firmly entrenched their revolutionary leaders in the highest levels of the entertainment industiry, the entire educational system, the government, and, most importantly, the judiciary. Every form of speech is sacred to them---except Christian speech that would say Jesus Christ is Lord...the Lord, the Lord alone, the only Lord, etc. Exclusive claims are out, at least for Christians (Muslims are free, however, to not only deny Christian claims, but to make their own exclusivist claims---partly because they normally do so in Arabic so that the secularists are clueless about what they are claiming anyway).
The Internet is buzzing with the decision (noted here) in which black-robed king/priest of secularism, David Hamilton, ruled that Christians can't pray publicly in government buildings---ok, he would say that's not true, but what he said was that any person chosen to give the invocation be instructed it must not advance any one faith or be used in a bid to convert listeners, i.e., Christians can't pray, since we do not pray to some nameless, faceless deity, but to the Triune God manifested as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Of course, the most ridiculous thing is that Hamilton is allegedly interpreting the Constitution...a document written by a bunch of folks who never once walked out on a Christian prayer during their proceedings. To say they (the authors) intended their words to carry the meaning Hamilton has "found" in them is a gross absurdity, and his ruling makes a mockery of his alleged constitutional duties, but that is the nature of Western culture today. It is on "self-destruct" mode, and words no longer have meanings, history can be re-written at will---all in the service of the Secularist Jihad. ...
