Leftists on God, Creation, and Religion

What do you say to a mass political movement that denies the existence of God…?

As many citizens know, even those on the Left, our nation was founded based on a strong belief in God. The Founding Fathers recognized that the rights of human beings are bestowed by the Creator, not by other people. They did not require that anyone be religious or adhere to any particular religious doctrine. 

Concurrently, the often misquoted phrase about the “separation of church and state” does not appear anywhere in the U.S. Constitution. The statement was part of Thomas Jefferson’s response in 1802 to a religious association in answer to their letter from October 1801. https://usconstitution.net/jeffwall.html

An Immutable Right

The Danbury Baptists, a religious minority based in Connecticut, lamented that their religious liberty was regarded not as an ‘immutable right,’ but as a privilege granted by the state legislature. Jefferson’s carefully replied, but focused only on religious liberty on the national level.

His letter included the phrase “wall of separation between church and state.” This phrase has served as a type short-hand for the First Amendment’s ‘Establishment Clause’ which forbids the government from passing any law “respecting an establishment of religion.” 

This Establishment Clause forbids the government from establishing an ‘official’ religion and from unduly favoring one religion over another. Any reference to God, per se, is an entirely different issue.

Whom Do We Trust?

Religious sentiment heightened throughout the dark days of the U.S. Civil War, as hundreds of thousands of soldiers died. A clamoring arose for the U.S. to acknowledge the deity, and subsequently the Secretary of the Treasury mandated that the words, “In God We Trust” appear on various Federal Reserve notes and on all coinage. www.treasury.gov/about/education/Pages/in-god-we-trust.aspx 

In 1956, “In God We Trust” became the official motto of the U.S. Today, this phrase, and the words “one nation under God” in the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance, rankles the Left to no end. Such words have been a sore spot for them for many years. Non-stop, they do their best to deny the existence of any type of creator, let alone God. Further, they seek to ensure that no one else believes in God either.

For many people, it is exceedingly difficult, however, to believe that the entire universe sprang from nothing. No driving force was behind the Creation? For the last 13.5 billion years, the universe has expanded to more than 800 million galaxies, of which our own Milky Way is simply one of the 800+ million. Was no creator involved?

A Random Existence?

An extraordinary amount of denial is required to believe that all which exists is a result of a spontaneous event, occurring at random. Try this: Ask a Lefty about Creation. You‘ll be told either it doesn’t matter or that the universe has always existed, so why claim ‘God’ had anything to do with it?

On scientific grounds, however, the contention that the universe has always existed has been disproven. Newton’s Laws of Thermodynamics reveal that the universe must have had a beginning. Based on his First Law of Thermodynamics, only a finite amount of energy exists in the universe. 

Newton’s Second Law of Thermodynamics indicates that the amount of available energy in the universe is forever decreasing. If the universe has always existed, all available energy would have dissipated long before humankind arose on Earth.

The best and sole scientific rationale for the existence of the universe is that a higher intelligence created it. Leftists prefer not to acknowledge physics and it is characteristic of them to embrace the same doctrine as those committed to socialism and communism. They believe in no higher power. 

They maintain that the state is the be-all and end-all for the affairs of humankind. They hold that government grants rights to humankind: We should be thankful for our governing officials, and not the governing officials being thankful that ‘we the people’ allow them to be in power. 

Words Fail Me

What do you say to a mass political movement that denies the existence of God, eschews scientific principles, insists that their views are the correct views, has no tolerance for debate, cares little about free speech for others, and, putting it kindly, thinks you’re a moron? 

Realistically, precious little can be said to such people.

America Gets Tutored in the Doctrine of Devils

College Fix editor Jennifer Kabbany says “Nevermind the War on Christmas – what about the War on Jesus Christ?”

College Fix editor Jennifer Kabbany says “Nevermind the War on Christmas – what about the War on Jesus Christ?” Universities across America show an outright disregard and disdain for Jesus Christ, a survey by The College Fix finds. “A look at hundreds of religious studies classes at universities across the nation uncovered that, for the most part, professors prefer to snub the subject of who Jesus is and what he preached. Classes that are focused on Christianity, meanwhile, tip-toe around or altogether avoid the topic of Christ’s teachings.” College Fix says, classes in witchcraft, shamanism, yoga, after life beliefs, gender and religion are, but a few of the courses schools now offer the students in American colleges. But it doesn’t start there – it begins in kindergarten classes and elementary education. Drag queens are reading to the kiddies on anything they see fit, all while dressed in full gay regalia. Prophecy News Watch site says “Queer Is In, Christian Is Out.” The piece written by author Jonathon Van Maren that many classic ideas, teachings, and stories for children are getting LGBT makeovers, like these. “According to Christianity Daily, the fairytale Cinderella will be coming to Amazon Prime in September with a “LGBTQ sexless godmother,” played, unsurprisingly, by male homosexual Billy Porter. Porter told CBS that the new version will be “a classic fairytale for a new generation.” The BBC is also plugging a new children’s book called My Daddies, the story of a motherless little girl adopted by two men. This book was newsworthy not because there is any shortage of this sort of thing lately, but because it is “the first book of its kind to be written and illustrated by same-sex adoptive parents,” and “the first picture book about two gay dads with both an LGBT author and illustrator.” PBS, as…

The Bold Bovine: Art by Doug Giles

Published

[written by Doug Giles and republished with permission.] For those of you who’ve read the book the Leftists love to loathe, namely, The Bible, you know that King David went through more crap than Michael Moore’s colon. His brothers didn’t like him. King Saul sought to kill him and The Philistines weren’t big fans of his either.    Later in life, because of his sin of bumping uglies with Bathsheba and having her old man offed, his own kid sought to dethrone him as a consequence of David’s dalliance.    Suffice in to say that his ‘walk with God’ was messy.    David constantly needed God to bail him out and to come through in a big way with His supernatural power and boy howdy, did God ever show Himself mighty on David’s behalf!    In Psalm 92:10 David said, ” … You have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil.”   King David said God made him akin to a … wild bull?   Yes, Dinky. David said God made him like a wild bull.   When’s the last time you’ve heard that preached at your Hipster Feelgood Church? Never I’m a guessin’.   In light of Psalm 92:10 I’m starting a series of oil paintings depicting both ancient and current wild bovines as a homage to Ps.92:10 and a reminder to my clients that when you get into deep doo-doo, don’t curl up in the fetal position and wet your big Christian diaper. Call out to God and ask Him to make you like a wild bull that kicks demonic ass.   Here’s the first in my series of bold bovine. The original is sold but we have prints available. We print on luster paper, museum quality canvas, wood and for all you metalheads, yes, we print…
