For over a year, I've warned that the the Progressivevik left will stop at nothing in their march towards making America a socialist dystopia. They'll stoop to any low possible to reach that goal. They'll call you a bigot, a Nazi, and a homophobe. They'll threaten you with a beating from purple shirted thugs. They'll register Emmitt Smith, Troy Aikman, and Mickey Mouse to vote. They'll even bite off a couple of fingers to make a point.
Hey, I'm ok with all of that. I'm one tough SOB and I dare anyone to try to bite off my finger.
However, attempting to pervert religion, well, that's just hitting below the belt. And that's the Progressiveviks' new strategy to enslave us all to their whims.
Let's take this year's version of Van Jones, Jim Wallis, Chairman Obama's "spiritual advisor" and Glenn Beck target, a rabid communist and all around spooky dude, for example. He's all hopped up on that "social justice is actually a Christian belief" lie. He writes in the HuffingtonPuffington Post:
"... voluntary church action can't provide health care for millions who don't have it, or fix broken urban school systems, or provide jobs at fair wages, or protect our kids from toxic air, water, and toys, or fix a broken immigration system that is grinding up our vulnerable families, or keep banks from cheating our people. "
Um, Comrade "Preacher", that's not what churches, synagogues, or mosques are meant to do. Those are political problems, not spiritual ones. Houses of Worship aren't political thinktanks, they're guides to shepherd the faithful into doing the right thing VOLUNTARILY. That means, no gun at your back, no threats of jail time, or long or short forms. That means helping the little old lady push her stalled car off the road. That means helping the old guy next door bring his groceries upstairs. That means loaning your friend a couple of bucks until payday and telling him not worry about paying you back if you can afford it. It means being equitable and fair in all your dealings. Nowhere in the Bible does it say anything about forcibly taking another person's property and giving to those who don't deserve it. "Love thy neighbor" does not mean "Pay all his bills while he lives a life of leisure while you work yourself to death."
Hey, I'm no expert. God is. Let's hear His views on the subject:
"The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute."-- Proverbs 12:24
"But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel."--
1 Timothy 5:8
"Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth." Ephesians 4:28
And my personal favorite:
"For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat." 2 Thessalonians 3:10
Isn't it weird how three of those quotes came from the New Testament ? Regardless of Jim Wallis thinks, the welfare called for by the mantra of social justice is actually abhorrent to Christianity and Judaism, the two dominant religions in the United States. (No, I'm not leaving out Islam out of spite. I'm just not familiar enough with the Koran to quote it correctly. I have too much respect for any religion to misuse any quotes from its Holy Scripture. If there are any Muslims out there who can provide me with quotes to prove my point, drop me a line. I only bite Progressiveviks, not my fellow Monotheists.)
See, the seperation of church and state, while not in the Constitution, is an important concept that we must value and cherish. No, I'm not saying we should call the ACLU anytime someone puts up a Nativity Scene at city hall. Far from it. What I am saying is that the division of church and state is an important concept so that religion isn't twisted by maniacs like this Jim Wallis character. When was the last time you heard any preacher worthy of the title say this: "The media seems to think only abortion and gay marriage are religious issues. Poverty is a moral issue, it's a faith issue, it's a religious issue."
Wrong, Jimbo. It's an issue created by the lie of social justice and the failures of Progressiveviks like you.
