The War on Christianity

Today’s radical left, John Hinderaker reminds us, does not just hate Jews. It has moved on from Jew hatred to hating Roman Catholics. Being the sworn enemy of Western civilization, it would naturally begin by attacking the smaller and weaker Jewish community. After that, it moves on to Christians, beginning today with Catholics.

You saw its ugly face in the attacks on the Covington Catholic boys. Among those who happily slandered the boys was Minnesota Congresswomen and notable anti-Semite, Ilhan Omar:

Ilhan Omar’s outrageous lies about the Covington Catholic boys, since deleted, illustrate an important lesson. Omar is a notorious anti-Semite; she goes so far as to advocate for the BDS movement. So, is it surprising that her venom has now been directed against Catholics?

What did she tweet:

The boys were protesting a woman's right to choose & yelled “it’s not rape if you enjoy it”

-They were taunting 5 Black men before they surrounded Phillips and led racist chants

-Sandmann’s family hired a right wing PR firm to write his non-apology 

The left does not limit itself to hating Jews. It has lately increased its open attacks on Catholics:

The people who hate Jews are, for the most part, the same people who hate Christians. In the last few months, we have seen the Left ramp up its attacks on Catholics: Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee assaulted Amy Barrett’s religious faith; some of those same senators demanded, incredibly, that Brian Buescher resign from the Knights of Columbus; and now, the Left has, in unison, baselessly slandered the Covington Catholic boys who attended the March for Life in Washington.

True enough, Hinderaker remarks. It is warming up to attack devout Catholic Amy Comey Barrett, the woman most likely to be nominated to succeed Ruth Bader Ginsberg on the Supreme Court. 

But, there is more to it? After Catholics, the left will set out to destroy practicing Protestants too.

Why does the left hate religion? Perhaps because its leader, Karl Marx despised religion, to the point of inspiring governments to replace Judeo-Christianity with atheism. How did that work out?

Hinderaker continues:

The modern Left is a secular movement that is deeply hostile to religion. Many Leftists hate Judaism, but they hate Christianity even more. (Go into the bakery business if you have any doubt about that!) There is good reason why we refer to the Judeo-Christian tradition. Christianity comes from Judaism; three-quarters of the Christian Bible is Jewish scripture. The twin pillars of Western civilization, it has long been said, are Athens and Jerusalem. Christianity is a principal feature of Western civilization, which Leftists detest and want to destroy. So, if they are hostile to Judaism, they are even more bitterly hostile to Christianity.

Some of those who wish to destroy religion are atheists. Others are neo-pagan idolaters. They are not sure what they are. They are not sure what they are for. But they know well what they are against.

The Left is Marxist/socialist, and will not let any religion usurp its "rightful" place.

I begin to believe it's a war on humanity.
This may sound stupid, but I hope they both keep it up, and *ramp it up*.
Hopefully then, even the slowest in our electorate will begin to realize that they're going to be NEXT on the hated list, and vote against them.

Now if we can only keep the vote-count reasonably honest.

Certainly fear and hate exists on all sides and the internet delivers, and trolls. I say forget religion for a moment if we can, while the boys had the disadvantage of the largest numbers for looking like they're ready to become Lord of the Flies. One boy did say “it’s not rape if you enjoy it”, although I don't know if anyone knows who he was, if he was one of the Covington Catholic boys.

And the small group of "Black Hebrew Israelites" (Southern Poverty Law Center calls them a hate group) was the instigator with crude name-calling, so Omar's characterization "taunting 5 Black men" was disappointedly biased.

Omar could learn a lesson from MLK who said "We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love... Our aim must never be to defeat or humiliate the white man, but to win his friendship and understanding."

Omar is yet young, so hopefully not as set in her ways as the rest of us irredeemable haters.
