    Truth is poison to Liberals

    The Constitution was put in place to keep the Government in check not it's Citizens! The Globalist Totalitarian leaning Liberal Progressive Socialist Democrats and Republicans In Name Only think otherwise. #VoteThemOutIn2020 and every Election Cycle there after.

Truth is poison to Liberals
Posted on: 2019-01-01 20:32:39   By: Anonymous

People have been calling to seal the Border and Build The Wall since the 70's!! The problem has always been soft people who think it cannot happen to them. The problem has been Politicians who refuse to listen to their Constituents. The problem has been a demographic make up of Politicians who are Globalism Minded and want no Borders. The problem has been Voters allowing the Politicians to operate freely with absolutely no threats of recall or Class Action Law Suits for incompetence and misrepresentation. There are hundreds of more problems that can be named but nothing will change until the Voters decide enough is enough and they decide to vote out every Globalist and Socialist Politician in every State who is dragging everybody into the Globalist Minded Society. Globalism does NOT work. Look at Europe in shambles look at the UK and look at Venezuela!! Those regions are the future of California and this Nation unless you the Voter make a strong stand against the Liberal Progressive Socialist's now in Elected Offices in California and in all States.
If you agree with all of the above please go out and educate others.
Change starts with in you. Nothing changes if nothing changes.

    The Heresy of Christian Nationalism

    God doesn’t bless America.

    That’s not how this works.

    I’m sorry to break it to you, Bible Christians—but that’s just how it is.

    I know this kinda wrecks the convenient narrative you’ve been working for the past 60 or so years (and hitting especially hard the past eighteen months), but honestly that nasty bit of heresy has done enough damage already and it needs to go. It’s straight-up of the devil.

    I’m not sure where you’re getting your taglines and hat slogans from, but I know it isn’t from the Bible. I know it isn’t from your coveted and regularly trotted out John 3:16:

    For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

    God loved the world.
    God is in the world-loving business—not the America-blessing business.

    You remember the world, don’t you; that massive, spinning sphere of 7.6 billion disparate human beings: brown people, Muslims, LGBTQ folks, Atheists, *bleep*hole countries—and lots and lots of non-English speaking, non-Americans?

    Check out the Old and New Testaments again.
    Read through the Gospels a few times.
    Use any translation you’d like:
    No America First.
    No Making America Great Again (or at all.)
    No flags or national anthems to pledge allegiance to.

    A few other bits of news from the Scriptures:
    Jesus was born in the Middle East.
    He didn’t speak English.
    He wasn’t white.
    He wasn’t Evangelical.
    He wasn’t a Republican.
    He wasn’t American.
    Heck, he wasn’t even Christian.

    Jesus was a Rabbi who spent his days as an itinerant street preacher, living off the generosity of strangers and speaking in parables about a new “Kingdom of God:'” a radical way of living where the poor were cared for, the oppressed freed, and the outcasts welcomed in.

    Jesus came to usher in a countercultural kind of interdependent community, in direct opposition to the power-wielding Roman Empire he stepped into. It was a diverse, barrier-breaking, border-transcending, nation-defying movement of generosity and mutual affection. It had nothing to do with blessing a Government or building an army—or creating a gated community of white folks in North America two thousand years in the future.

    To claim that America was at all the point of the Gospels is flat-out heresy.
    To assume any God-ordained supremacy based on religion, nation of origin, pigmentation, orientation, or native tongue—is a perversion of the work of Jesus and idolatry of the worst kind.

    I’m sorry to break all this bad news to you. I understand the actual words of the Gospel are problematic, given the story you’re selling to those whose fear you’re leveraging in America right now.

    It’s impossible to be devoted to the Jesus of the Scriptures, while refusing refugees, expelling immigrants, vilifying brown people, worshiping political power, guarding borders, and neglecting the poor—which is exactly the point.

    As long as you continue to conflate God and America, you’re going to be whitewashing the Good News, shrinking God into your own image, and bastardizing the message of Jesus in ways that can only be described as fully and violently heretical.

    If your God is America—you need a bigger god

      Did you hear of those nuns the priest have been raping, I believe it was in India? Man, I bet those were some tight ones. Sure beats doing those little boys.
      I guess it's true, The Lord Moves In Mysterious Ways, Huh?
      I wonder if those priest are democrats? Sure sounds like it.

      It is interesting how any institution founded by men and over seen by mere men of carnal thinking has been allowed over 2000 plus years to not only perpetrate the lie but to be given free rein by free men to promote and to profit from that lie even to the extent of Child Molestation and Homosexuality which are not only practiced by it's members but by it's ministers itself freely and openly as well as in secret and not held accountable yet given a free rein against the laws of this land also put in place by men. It is a true fact that men would rather believe the lie than face the honest pure truth as the lie is more soothing and does not challenge but subverts and diminishes the stature of men over all bringing about complacency. We see this not only in our religious institutions of men for men but we also see this in our government which has forgotten it's Constitution is to keep Government in control not it's citizens much in the same fashion the historical biblical scriptures were put into place as a Instruction Manual to remind men when they get out of control and think more highly of themselves much as a god in many ways. We see this same likeness in those who can only stand behind a single party line of governments fabricated by men for themselves and ignore the simple laws of common sense. Truly men have forgotten their Constitution much as they have forgotten their Instruction Manual in the Scriptures abandoning both to the ends of their own self destruction.

          looks like a story line and not made to be a news rebuttal but most people cannot understand past one sentence anyways these days.
