The Unforgivable Sin: Opposing Liberalism

The Western world generally has lost the concept of man as a creature made in the image and likeness of God, and reduced him… to a component part of the universe… This distortion of the true nature of man was due principally to the philosophy of historical liberalism, which saw man as endowed with no higher destiny than the economic. There is no word more “dangerous” than liberalism, because to oppose it is a new unforgivable sin.  — Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

I discovered the quote above at a Roman Catholic website called The Vulnerable People Project.

I was drawn to the website because of the following idea stated on page one of the site, “The Great Campaign for a civilization that venerates the dignity, beauty and worth of the human person from the first movement of life to natural death and spiritedly defends life at every level of governance, from that of the smallest village to alliances and agreements among sovereign nations”

The gold nugget in this ideological dig is “venerating the dignity, beauty and worth of the human person.”

God drew me to this early in my adult life.  On February 3, 1980 I decided to follow Jesus.  I invited Him to rule over me.  I became a partisan for Jesus Christ.  After marriage and four years of college studying theology and philosophy God gifted me with four years of living with troubled souls at a place called Bethany Acres.  I am honored to have been given the opportunity during those years to not only cooperate with God and my wife in the creation of three boys, but to lead Bethany Acres.

God challenged me to think and act bigger than Bethany Acres.  He put me at the Christian Civic League of Maine where He told me to venerate the dignity, beauty and worth of the human person in state government.  God further refined that calling.  He helped me to take a stand for over two decades in that position for Christian morality.

Paul the Apostle wrote:

“I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith — that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death.”
Philippians 3:8-10

The source of Christian power is suffering.

From a page at the Vulnerable People Project website:

As the price of calling ourselves Christians, we must make our case for natural law, religious and economic liberty, the sanctity of life, and the truth about sex year in and year out, regardless of the vagaries of particular candidates and party platforms. Pragmatically, we have no other option.  All those truths are inevitable implications of the gospel of Jesus Christ, which He ordered us to preach even in the face of persecution, offering us this promise:“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so men persecuted the prophets who were before you.”  (Matthew 5: 10-12)  Millions of Christians have seen the need to keep fighting as clearly as many Catholics have. In fact, evangelical leaders and theologians have come a long way toward accepting the necessity of classically Catholic natural law reasoning, instead of relying on Biblical proof-texts, cultural inertia, and natural repugnance in fighting back against the latest outrages proposed by sexual revolutionaries. This is enormous progress.  As the ecumenical effort to fight back against the Obama administration’s HHS mandate showed, Christians can prevail when we act together—when the Protestant owners of Hobby Lobby cooperate with the Little Sisters of the Poor. There are many organizations that serve the cause of protecting religious liberty and unborn life across denominational lines, and we should energetically support them.  We should also work with other organizations fighting to preserve the basic liberties of Americans, even if they are not religiously motivated, to protect our own rights to economic initiative, self-defense, private property, and free speech.  We must look back to the dignified, free, responsible vision of man upon which our great Republic was founded, a profoundly Christian vision, which is Catholic because it is true.  Defending the Bride of Christ from the modernist agenda, this will be our reason to have been here.  There is nothing lovelier, nothing more profound, than the correct and true teachings of the Catholic Church positively impacting the individual, a society, a nation and the world.

Make no mistake this fight is both Christian and global.  God is pulling back the veil and letting us see in bold colors the profound evil, hatred and ugliness that is Satan.  We fight Him.  While it is true that the Left has obviously decided to make Him their god, we see every single person in this satanic movement as a person who has intrinsic dignity, beauty and worth.

God help us to win.

Cook, Jones, Kavanaugh and the Collapse of the Left

The Supreme Court nomination process isn’t that big a deal.  Most people don’t care about politics or news.  FoxNews is the most watched cable news channel.  There are over three hundred million people in America.  FoxNews gets just over a million viewers a day.

More people watched them during the recent full day hearing on the Kavanaugh nomination.  But only twenty million watched that debacle.  Rush Limbaugh gets ten million listeners a day.

The numbers are as high as they are with the Kavanaugh hearing because of sex.  We are drawn to sex because it is a powerful influence in everybody’s life.

Stephen Baskerville thinks deeply about this.  And he writes about it.  His most recent book is “The New Politics of Sex:  The Sexual Revolution, Civil Liberties, and the Growth of Governmental Power.”  The description of the book begins, “What Newsweek calls ‘the politics of sex’ is a force far greater than campaigns to recognize same-sex marriage, liberalize abortion, or admit women and homosexuals to military combat. These debates represent only the tip of a much larger trend, the full dimensions and implications of which we are only now beginning to comprehend.”

The activities of politicians and supreme court judges mean nothing to most people.  The process has become so corrupt and arcane that the average person just tries to avoid all of it … unless it’s about sex.  Like iron filings to a magnet our attention is drawn by this powerful force of nature — sex.  The Left has turned sex into a tool of control.  They use it to increase their power over masses of people all over the world.

That is why they used Christine Blasey Ford and accusations of sexual misconduct from two other women at the last minute of the Kavanaugh nomination hearing.  The Left knew they couldn’t derail Trump’s second pick for the court without manufacturing outrage.  They timed the “revelations” to focus the pussy hat brigade’s outrage at just the right moment.

The feminist moment, however, is passing.  More and more people wake up every day to how they are being manipulated by all of the institutions of the West.  The relatively small cabal of satanically rich people in the world are facing a challenge that may defeat their selfish agenda.  It is still early in what many are calling an information war.  For the first time in my life I’m sensing that the balance of power is shifting away from these profoundly wicked individuals and families.

The cornerstone of the wall that protects the power of these oligarchs has been removed.  Ironically, they are the ones who have initiated the collapse.  Their censorship gambit isn’t going to work.  Their wall of protection is collapsing.

As we ride through the breach we discover the delicious irony of the sexual deviant Tim Cook proclaiming that Alex Jones “sucks.”

Right.

 

Walmart Promotes Evil in Austin: Alex Jones Calls Them Out

I watched this video.

Alex Jones is a lion.  If you don’t believe me then watch his actions in this video.  He roars and parades like a male lion.  I love it.  The masculine virtues on display.  Testosterone included.

What is Walmart doing allowing it’s brand to be associated with this nonsense?  Did you notice the reaction of the panelists to the roars of the Lion?  Sniveling isn’t too harsh a description.

The tone and style of the Left used to seduce me.

No longer.  I hate it.

The “men” on the stage disgusted me.

Young people are waking up.  Be encouraged by the first half of this Coach Dave Live show from yesterday.

 

Praise for a Gutsy Priest

I became hopeful in the late 1980s. The evangelical institution I led was ten years into a very public fight in Maine over homosexuality, law, religion and politics. As I reached the high point in my career news broke internationally about homosexual priests in the Archdiocese of Boston. I was certain that the backlash against this evil would benefit our campaigning in Maine.

I was wrong.

I spent the 1990s working closely with a Catholic layman, Paul Madore, from Lewiston.

Paul Madore talking with my son, Sean

While I associated with the lobbyist of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Maine I never trusted him. Much of his work in the Maine State House on behalf of Catholics was supportive of the Left. His work was partisan. It often favored Democrats.  Nothing was accomplished on “social issues” in the State House.

During those years my ministry focused all of her resources on taking the “gay” debate public. We decided to force the debate out of the State House using the referendum. This strategy slowed them down. It didn’t stop them.

The Roman Catholic hierarchy sided with the Left the whole time. The homosexual crisis in Boston didn’t affect their political posture on “gay” rights. While they feigned resistance they were doing everything they could to support the homosexual political agenda.

The reason for this is now clear.

Many Priests are actively homosexual. The current Pope supports homosexuality in the hierarchy of his church. Evidence?

How about Father Paul Kalchik, pastor of Resurrection Parish in Chicago. I should also mention Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano. I’ll save that for another post. Google his name.

Kalchik is no longer pastor of Resurrection Parish. He was removed by his Bishop, a Cardinal Cupich.

His “sin?”

He burned a rainbow flag.

It wasn’t just any rainbow flag.

Church Militant writes,

“This was no regular rainbow flag, but a banner merging the Cross with the rainbow,” a parishioner explained. “It was not innocent. It was a signal that this parish would be the new ‘gay’ parish, as Fr. Daniel Montalbano’s previous church, St. Sebastian, home to gay Masses, had burned down.”  Montalbano was close friends with Cdl. Joseph Bernardin, who presided over Resurrection parish’s 1991 inaugural Mass, the rainbow flag draped over the crucifix in the sanctuary. Montalbano was a known homosexual, holding gay parties in the parish basement. He died an untimely death at age 50, his body found in his rectory bedroom hooked up to a sex machine.  A parish staff member who was eyewitness to the event spoke with Church Militant and confirmed the account. After Montalbano failed to respond to knocking on his bedroom door, staff broke down the door to find Montalbano naked and still attached to the contraption. The archdiocese covered up the incident, reporting that Montalbano had died from a “heart attack,” offering him a priest’s funeral shortly afterward.  And Kalchik didn’t just burn the flag. He held an exorcism. The Chicago Sun-Times reported, “Kalchik led seven parishioners in a prayer of exorcism Friday, and the flag was burned inside a portable fire pit placed in the schoolyard next to the church. The ashes of the flag now rest in a church compost heap.”

Kalchik was twice molested, once by a Priest. The Chicago Sun-Times said that Kalchik equates the flag with predatory behavior.

This man is a hero to Jesus Christ. I don’t care what the Pope or Archbishop Cupich thinks. Jesus Christ loves this man and he will be rewarded on judgment day. He is telling the truth. He is fighting for the dignity of his church.

The Left IS predatory. They hate people, especially babies. They loathe innocence.

They hate. We don’t. Kalchik doesn’t. He loves enough to tell the truth. God is blessing him. And God is finally exposing the rot in Western institutions. It is fundamentally sexual.

It is perverse. We are sick.

Repent.

I relied on the article “Fr Paul Kalchik:  A Kind of Martyr” from the American Conservative for material in this post.

Let’s Put the Hate Thing on the Table in Post Number One … My Introduction

A couple weeks ago I listened to George Gilder’s book, “Life After Google:  The Fall of Big Data and the Rise of the Blockchain Economy.”  The book deepened my interest in all things “Crypto.”  Steve Martin, a friend in Maine, introduced me to a blockchain-based blogging project called Steemit earlier this year.  I created an account and then set the whole thing aside over the summer.  This past weekend I finally published my introductory post to the platform.  Following is what I published there.

Let’s get this out of the way in my introduction to the Steemit community. I am a Christian. I hate sin. I hate it most in myself. I also hate it generally.

This means that I hate homosexuality. I hate it because it is one expression of sin. It is an especially vile version of sex outside the covenant of marriage.

Why do I bring this up in my introduction?

If you take time to visit my website I think it will become obvious.

In summary, I was ejected from the cockpit of the Christian Civic League of Maine in 2009 for hating homosexuality. Given the emerging embrace of all things sodomy in the West I suspect more people than ever might argue that I hit my head on the canopy on the way out. Nothing else, they would kindly (I’m sure) suggest, can explain my intransigence on this issue.

I served that ministry for over two decades.

I hope to write here notwithstanding my obvious violation of the “hate” policy that I’m sure exists in the Steemit guidelines. I’d rather get downvoted right from the start than find out down the road that Steemit is no more resistant to censorship than Google or Facebook.

And … I’m only going to write this once. I can’t think of one “gay” person that I hate. Jesus tells me that I must love my enemies. I do that … by writing and thinking truthfully. Homosexuals pervert this by making all arguments against their ideology into personal animus.

Grow up.

In the spirit of this introduction I want to draw your attention to an especially interesting article and video recently published on the website of MassResistance, an organization that is listed on the inaccurately named Southern Poverty Law Center’s list of hate groups.

The article features an educator named Robert Oscar Lopez. He abandoned the “gay” lifestyle years ago. He thoughtfully blogs about the issue.

MassResistance is now featuring him in a series of videos. This article is the fourth in that series. The article highlights and introduces the video.

No thoughtful person is going to outright reject the ideas presented by Professor Lopez. A person exposes their political prejudice by not engaging the content of this material. Resorting to hatecalling isn’t helpful.

I am saddened that even the Southern Baptist Church is now being drawn into the perverse intellectualizing related to the dishonest political campaigning of the noxious Left. Figures like Tim Keller and Albert Mohler are theologizing the confusion.

They need to stop it.

Christianity is clear about marriage and sexuality. Our leadership must be equally clear. How about they invest their significant intellectual powers in stigmatizing this vile sin instead of rationalizing it.

Gaining more worldly power isn’t worth it.

Not for Christians.

Settled Law

By Fritz Spencer

When our teacher first placed us in long rows so that we no longer hopped, hooted, or capered to the right or left like so many lambs or baby goats, she gave us the first laws which applied outside the home. Similarly, when our small but growing legs were steady enough, and when our unsure minds were equal to the task, our teacher showed us how to cross a busy street, by looking first to the left and then to the right. Her instructions were exactly what the occasion required, and therefore could not be otherwise. They were based on reason, and could not be altered without exposing the children to harm; and her rules applied not only to one child, but to all. Thus her rules met the criteria of a valid, settled law.

Under our form of government, the people or their representatives may change any law, up to and including the laws which comprise the fundamental law of the land, the Constitution. In that sense, no law in America is completely settled. Nor is it proper in the context of the current controversy over abortion to use the phrase “settled law” because the phrase implies the controversy, with regards to the law, is over; when on the contrary, abortion remains the most intensely debated issue of the day. The phrase “settled law” is therefore not merely deceptive. It is the direct opposite of the truth.

The oldest and most venerable of all settled laws is the prohibition against the shedding of innocent blood. It is a law older than the Code of Hammurabi, which was written on columns of granite, and older than the Ten Commandments, written on tablets of stone. So old is the law that it is written on the heart of man in the form of instinct. Man by nature abhors homicide. Thus a law which permits the shedding of innocent blood, as does any law permitting abortion, is not really a law at all, but a form of violence, violence being defined as the morally unjustified use of force. In the case of abortion, the victims are the most defenseless among us; and the violence is done by precisely those who are entrusted with their care and devotion.  Moreover, the shedding of innocent blood is the only act which may not be made good or bad according to circumstances. Thus a man is morally justified in stealing a loaf of bread if he or his family is starving, but the shedding of innocent blood is prohibited even in the cruelest of wars.

The act of aborting a child remains evil in itself, in all times, in all places, under all circumstances; and is prohibited by the most settled law of all mankind. For any legislator or jurist to deny this obvious truth is deception, whether he or she is a United States Senator, as is Susan Collins, who is in favor of abortion, or a nominee to be a justice of the Supreme Court, as is Judge Kavanaugh, who is against abortion. In the case of Judge Kavanaugh, the disavowal of this easily understood concept causes inestimable damage to the pro-life movement and to the law and our existing social order, which at all times must be based on reason and truth. And it may well be that Judge Kavanaugh is telling a lie to secure a personal advantage. This is a good time to heed the admonition of the late Senator John McCain, who said, “We must never trade principle for personal advantage.” By doing so, Kavanaugh is automatically disqualified from holding a seat on the Supreme Court.

Our journey through life begins at birth. The journey is a long and arduous one, filled with joy and suffering, laughter and tears, and many unseen and unexpected hazards. We will stumble less if we are guided by legislators who enact laws that are just and merciful, and by judges who tell the truth. And above all, we must uphold the oldest and most settled of all laws, the prohibition against the shedding of innocent blood.

Men for Christ

My insurance man invited me to help him yesterday.  When I found out he was doing physical labor I decided to help.  I drove one hour to join five other old men.  They gathered together to build a fence.  The fence was erected to keep toddlers from wandering across the dirt road to the waterfront that is nearby.

The Holy Spirit told me to go when I was invited.  When I decided to heed the Holy Spirit’s nudge I didn’t know why I was going.

The obvious benefit was hard work.  I enjoyed using the iron bar and post hole digger more than I would have enjoyed speeding along behind the high powered boat tied to the wharf nearby.  There’s something about dirt and rocks.  There were lots of rocks embedded in the dirt.  This made me grateful for the boy toy excavator that showed up to help us with the task.

The only way to open the holes without the excavator was to get down on your hands and knees with a crowbar and screwdriver.  It was good.  Very good.

The Bible records this about Noah, “And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the Lord hath cursed.

Work is from God.  Welfare is from Satan.  Work is not easy.  Work is divine.  There is no substitute for manly work.  Work is hard.  Work is a curse.  Thank you Jesus.

Being with those men in the dirt was spiritual.  It wasn’t spiritual because we were putting up a fence at a Christian camp.  We were doing that.  It was spiritual because it was hard, involved dirt and it took a group of men cooperating to get it done.

While this work is good fighting for righteousness in a manly way is better.  It takes men to establish justice in the earth.

Paul the Apostle writes in his letter to the Philippians, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”  I love that phrase “Be careful for nothing.”  Don’t be overly cautious.  Be bold.  Dare … in prayer.  But prayer isn’t any good without actions.

James wrote, “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

Men in Christ build fences to protect innocence, life and purity.  It is called law and politics.

Child murder and the rape of innocence by the “gay” cause will stop when the Men of Christ decide to stop it.  Not before.

Shame on the pastors for forcing Christianity behind the walls of the stained glass fortresses we call churches.  Shame on us for not standing up for Jesus in our workplaces.  Shame on our politicians for not simply ending the nonsense.

God will not be mocked.

Let’s get busy building fences for Jesus.

 

You Can’t Make This Stuff Up

Maine people don’t care about the children of Maine.  Christians are to blame.  We don’t care.  If we did we would do something to make this stop.

This is what Jesus said about innocent and impressionable children, “It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.”

I can’t think of anything more offensive and dangerous to impressionable young minds than what this headline in last week’s Lewiston Sun Journal says, “Drag Queen Story Hour coming to Lewiston.

This is what I wrote originally, “Christians have no excuse before God if they don’t demand that this ‘event’ be cancelled.  Now.”  I’m tempering that a bit.  I read the whole story a second time.  I discovered the “story hour” isn’t taking place in a public library.  It’s being held in what looks like a private bookstore.

The article by Lindsay Tice is a good example of propaganda and cultural marxism.  She sandwiches a couple benign Facebook comments critical of the event in between glowing praise for this evil.

The article makes it appear that everyone is just fine with this going on in their community.

I said thirty years ago that the homosexual movement was about the children.  I believed then, and we all know now, that they want our children to accept queerdom.  My friend David Arthur probably would have something to say that would spice up Linday’s article.  He lived thirty years as a woman.  AIDS nearly stopped him dead in his tracks ten years ago.  He’s easy to find.  He has ties to Maine.  Why don’t reporters like Lindsay Tice interview David so that the truth can be told?

Or how about Paul Madore.  He’s a 69 year old grandfather of 35 and father to 9 LEWISTON children with a very public history of objecting to this sort of nonsense.  Why isn’t he quoted in the story.  I wonder if Lindsay Tice called any local Christian priests or pastors?  I wonder what they would say about this.  I’m afraid to ask, frankly.  The Southern Baptist Church is playing footsie with this nonsense for goodness sakes.  They think that if they make peace with the LGBTQ-P (pedophile) movement their children and grandchildren that have abandoned their doctrine will return to help them pay for their megachurch parking lot loans.

God is not going to continue ignoring this.  And the Bible is packed with accounts of what happens when He runs out of patience.

If this weren’t in some hole-in-the-wall bookstore that I’ve never heard of I’d be tempted to dig out my “America’s Future” sign and go stand on the sidewalk outside praying while the demons enter into the little children.

Introducing Bob Garrett to the Alphabet Man LIVE

This morning I hit the streets of Maine’s capital city, Augusta.  I’ve spent decades of my life here living, ministering and fighting in Jesus name.  I am ashamed to say that there is a baby murder mill here.  It must be closed down.

I am thrilled to report that men and women have maintained a faithful Christian vigil against this vile place for decades.  One man in particular deserves mention — Ron Stauble.

Ron is a retired bus driver.  He is in his 80s.  He is a gentle and soft spoken man who believes with his whole heart that people will turn away from abortion if they are given the facts.  And man, does he have facts.  I love Ron.  He loves babies and Jesus.

I led a group of five men in prayer this morning and wept when I came to acknowledging Ron’s dedication and leadership.

I enjoyed a precious moment introducing Bob Garrett to live streaming on the internet.  He was energized by the experience.  I think it gave him hope for getting the truth out there to more people and finally bringing an end to the slaughter.  You can watch him in the video above.  We were talking to David Arthur, the Alphabet Man.  David lived for thirty years as a woman.  After his death bed conversion he started a ministry called “I Belong Amen Ministries.”  A few weeks ago we helped him start a daily Live internet show.  He is helping people find hope and healing in Jesus Christ.  You won’t hear David’s story on the fake corporate news.  That’s because we don’t love Jesus Christ enough to turn it off.

Love Jesus!  There’s a reason He’s never mentioned on popular television programs and movies.  His gospel brings peace.  America will never fulfill it’s financial obligations without war.  We have made our country into the world’s most despicable arms merchant.  We need to stop it.  Now.

And we can help stop it by tuning out the corporate media and by tuning in the truth.

Check out Alphabet Man Live.  He’s producing a daily show now at 9 am EST.

Watch it!

And help me to support David and my son, Jared, who are making this gospel work possible.  Click here and donate today.  I’m replacing my meager weekly FedEx paycheck with donations so that I can help David and Christian like him full time.  Thanks in advance for your prayers and help.

Help Us Support Julio Severo

I just finished reading a most helpful article on cultural marxism.  I became interested in the article because of the hearty endorsement of Ray Moore from Exodus Mandate.  I respect Ray’s judgment.

I am writing about the article because it is going to be translated into Portuguese for distribution in Brazil by one of the culture warriors we give maximum energy to supporting … Julio Severo.  I recommend you read the article and then come back to finish this blog post.

Click here to read the article by P. Andrew Sandlin entitled, “Karl Marx Meets the Gospel Coalition.”

We need your help so that we can fulfill God’s call for us to help Julio and his homeschooling family of seven.  He requires technical assistance to continue expanding his online tent stakes, so to speak.  We are uniquely equipped by virtue of being the “electronic family farm” to help him.  I’ll write a blog post soon about the phrase “electronic family farm.”  Trust me for now.  We know a thing or two about computers and the internet.

Julio’s impressive influence in his home country of Brazil is exclusively dependent on the internet.  He currently publishes on a Google website.  One of our projects is to help him move to a more censorship resistant platform.  As you know the large American internet powerhouses like Google and Facebook are now practicing active censorship of Christian content.  This censorship has even included the deletion of content.  Can you imagine losing years of work with the flip of a switch?

My son Jared has created a platform that removes this threat and provides peace of mind to Christian creators online.

Julio has already been banned from Paypal as a result of hate filled attacks by homosexuals.

To help us fulfill God’s call to help Julio and dozens of loving warriors for Jesus Christ please click here.
