Church of the Deciders

Church of the Deciders
ROC Editorial 4-15-2011

How important is the first sentence in Amendment 1 of our Constitution’s Bill of Rights?

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; …”

Turns out, in light of what is transpiring in this country, it is pretty darned important! Is it not the liberals whom go ballistic at the slightest hint that anyone, at any level of government, would permit anything resembling our traditional religions to be sanctioned in the least by our government institutions? Yet, a strong case can be made, by simply observing the forced cultural trends being driven by the elitists, that we have in fact allowed a new unprincipled, pseudo-religion established by the Left, aided and abetted throughout the political spectrum, and implemented within all the branches of government, and at all levels. Unfortunately many among real religious faiths have also been sucked into the cult.

In academia world, whose members are hailed by the Left as our saviors, it is not a secret, that the professors, authors and philosophers have a general consensus “group thing” going, in which they consider the important aspects of life which must not be left to chance, nor be allowed to develop naturally. It is also true, that for the most part, these “progressives” mostly subscribe to ideologies that reject traditional customs (including religious ones),  Judeo-Christian principles or beliefs, free capital markets, American exceptional-ism, the concept that our government should be limited as to what it can decide for us, or the idea that individuals should be free to follow the dictates of their own consciences, or are even capable of using their reasoning.  It is these beliefs that motivate them to study society and religiously experiment, test, and bless their own opinions, as they employ their hypothesis, theories, and models to change our society into something else, something that can be directed to move humanity in the direction they want… which is often opposed to human nature and free will.

The uprooting of our traditional American culture and customs, and the supplanting of their experimental beliefs and values in their place, is their religion. It may not have one official or exact name, but it has all the elements of a religious organization. It is being established and institutionalized via the courts, the lawmakers, and the executive branch, both through their propaganda, and by the force of government. It has its own symbolism, its sermons, its behavioral expectations, its own narratives, and is setting an alternative morality and ethical standard via its main religious law, “political correctness.”  This authoritative “religious law” is being preached to our younger generations as if it were gospel. Social studies, or indoctrination are paramount priorities, to these “teachers,” far more important (in their wisdom) than reading, writing, or arithmetic of course.

This new religion even has many false iconic figureheads to worship. It also increasingly has real punishment associated with not observing its edicts. Much of what passes today as “mainstream accepted thought” is obviously not how most of us think at all, but rather is what we are told to comply with, or else. Often we can see it is the case that even when the voters are given a chance to say “we do not consent” to a particular aspect of it, we are overruled in the courts, and vilified by the foot soldiers of their crusade. We have already passed a point in which it has become truly absurd as to what we are expected to believe or feel about what society “ought” to be, as established by them. In this system free will and choosing are not really options.

It is clear what our Founders thought about the establishment of any religion that people were compelled to follow. They absolutely knew this would be counter to a free society, so were opposed to it. They listed this as their very first item when outlining our Bill of Rights. They had seen the effects of state-like, freedom-robbing tyrannies that grew in power in the name of religion, but ultimately subjugated its own members, and fought others of different religions constantly over power. They sought to protect the individual’s choice to worship, as he saw fit, not to be dominated by any particular denomination.  At the same time, they further recognized that to be successful as a nation, the principles and morality brought by religion were essential to our future as a nation.

Our government was established as one of self-government by, of, and for the people. We ratified it as such. We did not ratify a system of “comply or else,” where “thought police” dictate what we are allowed to value or believe. The Left has managed to establish this new tyranny by orchestrating a religious-like state, using allies incrementally developed by the political process of dividing us, and dictating what is acceptable in the name of society, and its undefined betterment. If their religion had a name it might be called the “Church of the Deciders.”

Though the Tea Party movement has a very strong element that wants to keep any social or cultural issues away from the three core elements they fight for, fiscal responsibility, limited government, and free markets, it is becoming apparent this is not enough. The unraveling of our culture is affecting all these areas as well. Businesses are being sued, ridiculous rules are being written for the “PC code,” people are being fired over comments or attitudes that have become forbidden by this code.  In just one example out of hundreds, observe how everyone in business has had to adopt some form of being “green” just to comply with the whole notion that man is destroying his own home planet merely by existing. Classifications of people are now determined to be either good or bad, of being subjected to law, or exempt from it. Woe be it to any party that gets caught in the politically correct snare, sanctions will be forthcoming!

So here we are in 2011, and our own country is becoming extremely foreign to us due to this insidious new religion. The Left has managed to use the government and media to establish a fervor in the name of “the greater good.” They will be the self-appointed stewards in charge of making sure the new commandments are adhered to. There are some new beliefs to learn, some new values to hold to, and some irresponsible behaviors to emulate, along with below average expectations, and a new immoral national character to embrace! So “don’t ask and don’t tell,” don’t worry about a flood of illegals strolling into the country, don’t profile people that worship out of a book that tells them to “destroy us wherever they find us,” don’t try and think for yourselves, don’t believe that government experts can’t solve any ill you may have, don’t question “kinetic military actions” or the end of drilling for oil here, (not now, not ever), but you are permitted to believe in the windmill!  Don’t doubt that your health should not be your business, or the pills provided by the men in black will not provide a wonderful death experience for you, or your loved ones, and above all never try and use logic of any kind!

The real churches are a force for good, and a competition for the Left’s false creation, and the works they perform are based on real and voluntary traditions of compassion for their fellow man and following the guidance of God. They promote self reliance and not dependency. The liberals therefore try to marginalize real religions. They have worked hard to put in place their alternative to them. Recently in its narrative they claimed that we are no longer a Christian nation, and questions if we ever were. They wish for us all to throw our moral compass overboard and leave the navigation to them.

For those that have not yet succumbed and been converted to the Left’s idea of religion, the article Christianity As An Influence On The Founding Fathers, John A. Sterling (Dec. 2001), does a great job of addressing the question; is America still a Christian nation? However, in today’s insane world, read it at your own risk, for surely both the Founders, and us normal thinking people, will be held to be on the wrong side of the new religion!

Fight the Socialists Plan for Mega Taxes

Face it, the Democrats of today are now socialists!

The mega tax they are trying to enact in the name of the environment in the Cap and Trade scheme

will be devestating to America.

Scientists on both sides of the issue know that solar cycles warm the the Earth(and all the other planets in our system) and climate is a direct result of those cycles. They know man is of little if any consequence to the climate on Earth.

The whole plan is about controlling people, and it is largely a Democrat party scam!

The estimates of the effects on the American people by their regulations to control our behavior in the name of preserving our living environment are ugly!

For one it will devastate the economy as millions will not have money to buy food or power much less anything else!

It will cost lives , as people are forced to sacrifice safety for mobility in smaller unsafe vehicles.

It will result in the loss of millions more jobs.

It will cost an estimated $7 trillion loss  to our economy-

“Economic Unilateral Disarmament”

You can take action-

Dear Supporter of American Energy,

While the American economy continues to struggle, the Obama Administration is attempting to raise energy prices by forcing Americans to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions. The only way to do this is by regulating and reducing the energy we get from natural gas, coal, and oil—the sources of 85 percent of our energy.

We must fight back. The Administration will only accept comments until June 23rd. Please join us and tell the Administration that we should be free to use the energy sources that work the best and cost the least.

If the Obama Administration’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) moves forward with their plan, bureaucrats will regulate your lawnmower’s gas mileage, your car, the light bulbs in your house, the heating and cooling system in your children’s school, and even your electricity use. These are just a few of the likely outcomes if the Administration decides to regulate greenhouse gases using the Clean Air Act.

The Administration must hear your voice. Send a comment to EPA today.

AEA believes the Clean Air Act is not the appropriate tool to regulate greenhouse gases. If Congress wants to regulate greenhouse gases, it should explicitly authorize such regulations instead of allowing a bunch of unelected bureaucrats at EPA to do so.

EPA is currently soliciting public comments on their proposed plan to regulate greenhouse gases using the Clean Air Act. Let your voice be heard! Time is of the essence! We can only stop this harmful plan if you weigh in today.

Sincerely,

Thomas Pyle
American Energy Alliance

News Highlights

When you go to bed at night, and when you awake in the morning, news from the domestic front has been pretty consistent, bailouts, government takeovers, deficit spending, and every socialist solution ever thought of, is hurriedly being foist upon the American people.

They are in a hurry to push all these programs, and push them fast because they know if people get a chance to actually look at them …we will not accept them!

When you are in a hole- “stop digging” the saying goes, yet the Democrats not only won’t stop digging, they keep digging faster.

The personal charm of the president is starting to lose its sheen as people look at staggering numbers and realize we will never recover, or leave a free society for our children if we cannot stop the relentless irresponsibility of excessive spending, and huge tax increases looming for present and future generations.

Getting the real truth from the media these days would be like getting an actual photo of Sasquatch or Loch Ness”s “Nelly”, and it isn’t likely to happen.  They are all propagandists now at the three networks having sold out integrity for access and leaving the rest of us with story of Obama as a master fly swatter to be in awe of!

So I really appreciate the News highlights at Surgeusa.org and the comments associated with the stories.

I can go there and get a real assessment of what those headlines actually will mean to the American people.

The hurried push for Cap and Trade, Health care, increased Financial regulation of the free markets, and health care reform are just a few of the attacks we face on all fronts.

The VAT or Value added Tax will be another hurry up and get this passed because ‘we can’t afford to wait‘ socialist plan.

Action Alert: There is talk in Congress again about creating a value-added tax (VAT), and perhaps trying to sell it by offering some other tax breaks at first.  This could be a huge tax burden on everyone, raising the cost of almost everything we buy, while hiding the cost in the prices and making businesses responsible for the collection of it, somewhat like a sales tax system (but different – because the consumer doesn’t see the added tax cost, somewhat like the way that excise and other taxes are buried in the prices of gasoline, utilities, cigarettes, etc.  That maintains the fiction that income taxes are not being raised while dramatically increasing the actual tax burden on everyone.
