We are losing our Christian culture. America the idea is being replaced by America the place. It is undergoing fundamental transformation into something totally alien to our founding principles. The antithesis of the shining light it set out to be. Having a conversation these days sometimes makes one feel like he just fell off the Tower of Babel.
We let them steal our language and with it our culture. They made the immoral and horrific sound inviting and not threatening. We let it pass until things that go against the grain of human nature and natural law became acceptable even desirable. And now if one tries to point out what we are truly discussing, he is attacked and labeled as a hater, a phobic of some sort, even an extremist. The popular culture driven by popular culture political correctness and downright vile indignations will unmercifully attack anyone who detracts from the group think and questions the destination of this new America.
In the language the opposite of pro life is pro choice. Not pro death, pro choice. If one thinks it is but a choice, then the graphic picture of someone violently and mercilessly ending the life of our most defenseless does not come to mind. Only the choice of a would- be mother. Nothing more than a choice like what to have for lunch. Interestingly, the same people who insist that choice is the opposite of life want to deprive others of choice in many areas. For people, it is easier to accept a choice than to accept the death of an unborn child. Not that I suggest such an act, but if you were to toss a puppy from your car window your heartless and atrocious act would be on the national news before the day was out. The mother who chose death, you paid for that with your tax dollars. You own part of the national guilt. It was just a choice.
I can recall in my lifetime when one might declare that he had a gay old time and mean that he had fun.
Gay meaning ‘homosexual’ became established in the 1960s as the term preferred by homosexual men to describe themselves. It is now the standard accepted term throughout the English-speaking world. As a result, the centuries-old other senses of gay meaning either ‘carefree’ or ‘bright and showy’ have more or less dropped out of natural use. The word gay cannot be readily used today in these older senses without arousing a sense of double entendre, despite concerted attempts by some to keep them alive. Gay in its modern sense typically refers to men (lesbian being the standard term for homosexual women) but in some contexts it can be used of both men and women. – Oxford Dictionaries
So, when gay is used to describe homosexuality the human mind does not conjure up an image of what happens when two men become sexually intimate.
Next, we will try to re-define marriage. Maybe the Oxford dictionaries will describe that as the day they removed family from the dictionary as well.
We are steadily redefining freedom as blessings from government rather than from God. Men and women across the land, whose ancestors endured the horrors of slavery, are willingly becoming slaves to a government who gives them and EBT card and a cell phone. Either of which the government can turn on or off at will in order to ensure obedience.
We are redefining other terms as well. Depending on where it occurred and act of Islamist terrorism can be no more than workplace violence. But, wait. Some also do not want to use the term Islamist any more. So much so that the term was removed from training materials used to train our people responsible for counter terrorism. I suggest we use soulless killers. The Army, that big olive drab family I spent a great deal of my life with has now listed Evangelical Christianity at the top of their extremist list. Of course it was disavowed as the act of an individual making a slide for an “Equal Opportunity” briefing. These are the types of mandatory briefings attended by all Soldiers at one time or another. This too is a load of baloney.
It is not desirable for us to refer to illegal immigrants as such. So what exactly should we call them? Invaders?
America is an idea. It is the first nation in human history that publicly placed its trust in God. Freedom is God’s domain and he chose America to be His shining light of freedom because America relied on Him. If America completes her turn away from God and America the place ends today, He will find another place on this earth from which to shine His light. The idea that the history of man knows as America, will never die. Because it is not a geographic location, it is written on the hearts of people.
