Dear conservatives and Constitutionalists:
This has been an
interesting week, in the Chinese sense. Many are kvetching that it is
the end of our economy, others are whining "Come, Lord Jesus" over the
preponderance of rainbows online (I hold firm with the prayer for the
Lord's return, but not as whinging over political downturns. The hymn
does NOT say "Whine Up O Men of God....). There is a vast cataract of
bloviation on one side, and mean-spirited poor winners on the other.
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.
What we have seen is a result of a vast stratagem, that of Wearing Down
the Opposition. For close to fifty years, the homosexual lobby has
worked tactical magic day-to-day, from making Christians look silly by
ignoring Biblical context, to having VERY sympathetic and likeable
characters on TV shows, to marching their brand constantly before the
They have lived and put forth supreme effort for their beliefs and lifestyle.
Because of this, 1.5-2% of the population has popularised what used to
the sin that has no name by turning it to something akin to civic
virtue, and by demanding not mere acceptance, no, but celebration and
rights for what has never existed before in 5000 years of history,
homosexual marriage being equivalent legally and socially to what Jesus
defined as "a man shall leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his
wife". (see, Jesus DID talk about it, too!) In doing that they also
accrued a large base of supporters, because if you DON'T agree, they
will call you made-up names in public. That would be uncool, and you
would likely not be invited to the best parties.
How was this accomplished? By unflagging effort to reach the goal.
Dear conservatives, Christians, and Constitutionalists, they BELIEVED,
then ACTED unyieldingly to accomplish their tasks. Were we as convinced
in our own concerns, we would have stormed cities, state capitols, the
very Capitol in D.C., and demanded that those who purport to represent
us DO SO. Those who are treasonous would have been arrested, and we
would have brought about a renascence of our Constitutional Republic.
This is a truth I speak, and you had best hear it. Why did we not fill
the streets of D.C.? Why did we not clog the halls of Congress with our
demands? Were we so busy that we could not get away? Busy with what?
Franklin said that the Founders gave us a Republic, if we could keep it.
Was the second car, the bass boat, the vacation so important that we
could not be BOTHERED to take back our country?
By all means, let
us moan, weep, gnash our teeth, and NOW call on the Almighty to get us
out of this mess. OUR mess, for had we the will our fellow citizens had
for their interests, we would have won the day by sheer force of
numbers. But no, social media, talk radio, "conservative news", all were
enough, we thought, we hoped. Someone else will do the heavy lifting.
Last year a retired Army guy tried to organise a peaceful siege of
Washington D.C. Few could be bothered, and it fizzled.
is judging Amurrica!" Stop blaming the Almighty for our own almighty
sorriness. And as I point my finger of indignation, I am cognizant that
three are aimed at me. Nothing short of a revolution will change things,
now. I question if we are man enough to even begin to consider thinking
about the possibility of debating the need to talk about forming a
committee to establish the by-laws for drafting a plan such as we would
We have been weighed in the balance, and found sorely wanting. "How can he say this?"
Because we have repeatedly and overwhelmingly lost. Behold the new force in American politics: The Loser Majority.
Here endeth the lesson.
