Christianity and the Anti-Christian Zealots

Anybody in the blogosphere has the right to say whatever they want, as do the radical/socialist/progressive sycophants and acolytes in the state-run media. That same right is extended to church-state separatist liberal evangelicals. And to those paragons of tolerance in the race industry and the victims' industry. And to Bhuddism, Islam, atheism, liberation, treason, anarchy, Unitarianism, Gaia, Green, Pink, and sedition. Conservative, Christia-- no -- wait a minute --

And right there is where the wheels come off the tolerance wagon.

In some circles Christians and political conservatives can say what ever they like about just about anything, as long as they hew to boundaries of tolerance and open-mindedness. But let just one of us say something about Jesus Christ or faith of any kind, and soon we're confronted by the now close-minded, bigoted, but otherwise tolerant sort that rushed Brit Hume.

There's no reason to recount Hume's conversation about Tiger Woods here. It's out there if you want to find it. We will, however, briefly take issue with the Washington Post TV critic who said that Hume's words were the worst of 2010. That was right before House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, of the health care bills in Congress, "There has never been a more open process for any legislation", which is, of course, a bald-faced lie, has been covered in other pages here, and is slightly off-topic. That TV critic is either a sycophant or an acolyte as described above, so Speaker Pelosi's comment didn't faze him. Then there was the critic that called for separation of church and TV....

We do not require all Americans to think or believe as we do. We also recognize that, even among conservatives, there are many streams of religious thought. We are happy to stand with anyone of any religious stripe in common cause for the advancement of freedom and the protection, preservation and defense of the United States Constitution and the United States of America. We will not stand quietly in the face of bigotry, hypocrisy, and the double standard against Christians and Christianity. We will not be railroaded into submission and silence by politically correct discrimination.

There is a strong temptation to end this post with words from a famous hymn about solid rock and standing and Christ, but we will forbear. Instead, we will end as we always try to here.

Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty, even for the liberty of anti-Christian zealots.

  1. An interesting post. Hmmmm....I must admit, felt some kind of way about Brit Hume's comments. While I do not subscribe to the notion that Christians should be able to express their faith, I must to confess to havin taken issue with Mr. Hume. Whatever one's religious beliefs, they are personal and for many, including us Christians, a major part if not the majority part of who we are. That being said, to basically say, as Mr. Hume did, that Tiger Wood's personal beliefs are somehow inadequate was simply wrong. As a Christian, I believe in the saving power of Jesus Christ, but, I would never denegrate another person's faith. Just as I wouldn't tolerate someone denigrating my beliefs, it's not the place of any Christian to do what Mr. Hume did. In many instances, we speak first and ask for guidance from God on what we should and should not say last. I think that was the case for Mr. Hume.
