The most hateful words ever uttered, based on the mainstream media’s outright hate poured over Dr. Ben Carson when he said the following in answer to a question:
Question from reporter: “But Dr. Carson, if a gunman walks up and puts a gun at you and says, ‘What religion are you?’ That is the ultimate test of your faith.”
Dr. Cason: “I’m glad you asked that question, because, not only would I probably not cooperate with him, I would not just stand there and let him shoot me. I would say, ‘Hey, guys, everybody attack him. He may shoot me, but he can’t get us all.'”
I want you to notice that I took these words from the video in which Huffington Post says in bold typeface, “Skip to 0:25 in the video above to hear Carson describe what he would have done if he’d been present at the shooting.” In other words, skip PAST the part where the reporter asks, “What would you do?” And Dr. Carson responds with what he would do.
It’s frankly amazing on one level. I mean, what in the hell is controversial about that? The argument to this side is literally, I WILL stand there and let him shoot me.” And of course, “I will stand there and let him shoot me until my Savior and Lord, the State, kicks down every single door in America and goes over every square inch of land with metal detectors and confiscates until it can account for every single one of the more than 300 million guns in this country. And PISS on the Constitution in the process.
Remember those three American heroes who were so honored in France for saving that trainload of passive French people from that terrorist? WHAT BEN CARSON SAID HE ASPIRED TO DO WAS EXACTLY WHAT THEY DID.
Let me tell you why what Ben Carson said is such a horrifying sin in the religion of liberalism: because liberalism is a religion of radical submission and radical helplessness. You are to be helpless and submissive in your role as a member of “the State.” And liberalism is a MISSIONARY religion in that every liberal must force the rest of us to be as helpless and as submissive in the face of “the State” as they seek to be.
If you so much as BELIEVE or FEEL that you ought to have a right to protect or defend yourself, you are a blasphemer and a heretic.
I guess that’s quite possibly why Spencer Stone – one of those heroes on that train in France who did not “cooperate” with the terrorist because they ddn’t want to “just stand there and let him shoot” them, was stabled – and fittingly stabled in the back by some coward – in the liberal bastion of Sacramento, California.
Somebody got this point in their title parodying the leftist piece of truly lousy toilet paper known as GQ: “F*CK Ben Carson For Preaching Self-Defense.” Because we’re getting to the very core essence of what truly separates a liberal from a conservative.
The Bible frequently uses the metaphor of “sheep” to describe believers before their God. And yes, apart from the wisdom of God, which we should therefore seek, humans are described as helpless and stupid, like sheep.
If you are a liberal, don’t sneeringly tell me you don’t have a religious faith. Because YES YOU DO. Liberalism is a religion following secular humanism that replaces “God” with “Government,” with human government. And the priests of this religion are bureaucrats, and to them the words of Isaiah 53 – “all we like sheep have gone astray” – ring like music. We are poor, stupid, helpless sheep under liberalism. And Government is our God, our Savior, to whom we ought to helplessly submit.
And when it comes to weapons, the biblical metaphor couldn’t be more apt in describing what liberals’ want: the SHEEP don’t get to carry weapons. They are far too stupid and they would clearly only hurt themselves or one another. No, only the shepherd, only the bureaucrat’s designated force-bearer, can carry weapons.
Probably the most famous passage in the Bible, Psalm 23, the Shepherd’s Psalm, sums it up: “Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me.” God is the One who carries the rod and the staff, not the sheep. And liberalism is a rabid religion that keeps shrieking, “There is no God but Government, and Obama is His Prophet!”
AND THEY MUST STRIP YOU OF YOUR GUNS AND LEAVE YOU UTTERLY HELPLESS, BECAUSE YOU ARE A SHEEP AND IT IS BLASPHEMY AGAINST THE ONE TRUE GOD THE STATE TO THINK ANYTHING ELSE ABOUT YOURSELF.
You have the right to religious freedom if and ONLY If you are a liberal. But every other religion is blasphemy before liberalism and its One True God, the human State. And every other religion must ultimately be forced to SUBMIT and be HELPLESS. Like a good sheep.
This doesn’t just apply to guns; it is all encompassing. Allow me to give you another example of God vs. Government and the side liberalism takes:
The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the LORD Almighty. — Haggai 2:8
WHO does all the wealth belong to? Well, I think we all understand those words very easily: the LORD Almighty. GOVERNMENT. OBAMA.
Liberals are the faithful demanding that all wealth go to the One True God, the State. It’s not that liberals disagree with the Bible as much as they disagree on who “God” is.
I’ve written about this stuff before, of course. I wrote about 1 Samuel 8:10-22 and how a wicked people refused God as their king and wanted giant, powerful human government instead. I wrote about Daniel 2:31-35 and how Democrats have picked the absolutely WRONG side of history to be on as they side with the human government that will utterly perish before the coming Christ who as the Rock will destroy it.
These people worship human Government in place of God, and human government will ultimately burn in hell right along with them.
Sheep are helpless. Just as liberals want those whom they dole out welfare to for literally generation after generation after generation to be helpless sheep who cannot take care of themselves. And all you have to do to guarantee that you will be poor for life, that your children will be poor for all of their lives, that their children will be trapped in poverty all of their lives, and so on, ad nauseam, is to vote Democrat. Because they seek to trap you in a vicious cycle that you will never get out of and you will therefore always need to keep voting for them to keep you in.
Liberals take money from one group and dole it out to keep another group dependent and helpless. Like sheep.
Liberalism is the confiscation of wealth and the offering of that wealth to the One True God, the State. And the priests of this religion, the bureaucrats, distribute it according to their theology.
There’s more, of course: who says what life is and who gets to live? God, of course, and ONLY God:
13You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
16 You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed. — Psalm 139:13-16
And who gets to decide these weighty questions of what is life, what is sacred, who gets to live and who should die? God, of course. The State. The Black-Robed High Priests of Liberalism.
Which is why the doctrine of abortion and the support for that doctrine is tantamount to an act of religious devotion. It is an act of religious faith, for I the LORD your God gave you Roe v. Wade. And let all other gods be forced to bow down before Me, and let all who oppose my rule be torn limb-from-limb or burned with acid in the very womb in which I, Obama, formed him.
What is marriage? Who decides? Only God, of course. That’s obvious. We all agree with that. Jesus, the divine Messiah of the God of the Bible, summed up God’s way according to Genesis 2:22-24 when He described biblical marriage:
“Haven’t you read,” [Jesus] replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” — Matthew 19:4-6
Well, liberals rabidly and utterly reject that God. They have their own God, the State. And so we now have Obama, the divine Messiah of the God of the State, providing a radically different view of “marriage.”
Atheism is a religion. It has been ruled so by the same Supreme Court that gave us Roe v. Wade and gay marriage. Just as secular humanism has been defined as a religion. It is now an amply documented scientific FACT that the human brain is hard-WIRED for religion and religious experience. It is literally now ANTI-SCIENCE to claim that humans aren’t intrinsically religious beings. You can put it in the most atheistic, physicalist, materialistic terms you want: but the human brain is hard-wired for religious experience and it’s only a question of what you worship, not whether you worship. Let me take a moment to deal with this part about our religious instincts being genetically or evolutionarily “hard-wired” into our brains: atheists have kind of GOT to say something like that to explain the fact that atheists are an incredibly tiny minority of the world’s population; “Adherents.com, estimates that the proportion of the world’s people who are “secular, non-religious, agnostics and atheists” at about 14%.” With about one-fifth of that 14% – or 2.8% – categorically stating themselves as “atheist” rather than some form of agnostic or secular. 2.8% of the world’s population is atheist. So here’s the question: since religion is hard-wired into our brains, who the hell do these people think they are telling us that we don’t need something that their very own precious evolution very clearly put in us because we need it? Their claim is tantamount to saying, “I evolved to no longer need evolution.” There’s an awful lot of problems with consistent atheism, but this is one of those contradictions that needs to be exposed.
Atheists can play their rhetorical word games and say, “If atheism is a religion, then off is a TV channel.” Here’s the problem with it: the very word “atheism” means, “no god.” Let’s acknowledge and then move beyond the problem with atheism as expressed by G.K. Chesterton: “When a man stops believing in God he doesn’t then believe in nothing, he believes anything.” Which corresponds with the admonition in Colossians 2:8 which says, “Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ.” I am making a different point here that strictly relates to the TV channel analogy; namely that atheism is espoused as a belief in the denial of something, but the very thing they are denying is such a quintessential part of who they are that the very word “theist” is the most prominent part of their own self-description. To wit: in the analogy that the atheist provides, “GOD is the TV. Religions are the channels. If it is off, maybe he’s dead or disengaged, but at least you admit there’s a TV.” . Just for the record, I can cite you MILLION of Christians who can easily use the same “logic” to rationalize that Christianity is NOT a religion. I googled the phrase, Christianity is not a religion, and got 86,000,000 hits. Their point is that “Religion is man’s way to reach God. Christianity is God’s way to reach man.” That many atheists don’t consider themselves “religious” is no more an accurate part of their perspective than that many Christians don’t consider themselves “religious.” The simple fact boils down to this: whether you are talking about atheism not being a religion, or Christianity not being a religion, the only way the proponents of either view are correct is if their belief (i.e., atheism or Christianity) is correct. If there is in fact a God, atheism is merely one of many false religious systems. And belief in God is NOT an essential part of a religious system, for the record, given that many Buddhists are actually atheists. Finally, the author of this actually quite-good article I cite above points out that the rabidness of the atheist and the tendency of the atheist to hate theists is every bit as fervent as it is the other way around. She points out, “Let me tell you: The angriest ones can be as malicious as a coven of Westboro Baptists at a veteran’s funeral.” In case anybody actually has the foolishness to doubt that, let me just point out that the very shooting that Ben Carson is the target of so much hate for describing how he would react was an ATHEIST who TARGETED CHRISTIANS.
I say this because of the incredibly dishonest, deceitful, disingenuous way that liberals and their counterparts who dominate the mainstream media constantly frame any and basically all religious debate in America. Religious people are constantly told that we have no right to impose our religion on others. From the very same people who even as they are saying that are exploiting it as an incredibly cynical device to impose their damn religion on me. As an example, an atheist decided to get offended over students being allowed to pray and rabidly determined to impose HIS religion of refusing to pray on every student whose religion encouraged them to pray. Every single court or every single bureaucracy that seeks to remove prayer from school is NOT removing religion; they are DICTATING which religion that students will be forced to practice, namely the religion of atheism/secular humanism.
My point is that liberals ARE worshipers. They are RABID worshipers. They merely choose to worship a very different God from the God of Christianity. And to the extent that they don’t worship the State, they worship themselves and their religion is about selfishly and self-centeredly obtaining their lusts and their desires through the power of the State and forcing others to provide these things for them.
I am beyond sick of liberals imposing their religion on me while they smarmily tell me that I don’t have a right to impose my religion on them. I’m sick of liberals perverting the Word of God and constantly seeking to turn me a sheep, as the Bible says I am, but a sheep of their God the State. I’m sick and tired of liberals telling me that I should be helpless, and that as a stupid, helpless sheep the only thing I’d do if I were allowed to have a weapon is hurt myself or some other innocent. So only the Shepherd of the religion of the State ought to be allowed to have weapons. I’m sick and tired of being told that I don’t have a right to impose my view of marriage on people as the people who tell me that impose their view of marriage on me with in-your-face-hypocrisy. I’m sick of liberals telling me that I’m crazy to believe that human life begins in the womb when they can’t produce a single example of a single human who didn’t begin in the womb. If their mothers had aborted those liberals, those liberals would have been killed. A child in the womb is human by virtue of the taxonomy of her parents, she is a being by virtue of the fact that she is a living thing: she is a HUMAN BEING. Let’s go through the taxonomic system that classifies every single living thing with our unborn baby: That “fetus” (which is Latin for “unborn child” by the way) is classified from the moment of conception as Kingdom-Animal; Phylum-chordata; Class-Mammalia; Order-Primate; Family-Hominid; Genus-Homo; and Species-Sapiens. Just like every human being whose life is precious unless you are describing human value in the hateful religious system of liberalism. These things are simply facts, but the religion of liberalism doesn’t give a damn about facts; it is a rabid religious faith. It is in fact a totalitarian religious faith that is missionary in its determined intent to impose itself on heretic unbelievers in Government.
We’re watching the Middle East and the world melt down due to President Barack Obama’s morally idiotic foreign policy. Right now we’ve got five million refugees fleeing Obama’s collapse, and millions more are going to come behind them. And where the hell are they going to go? And we’re ultimately going to see why Obama’s epic fail in the Middle East will result in America’s epic fail. We’re watching the complete vacuum of any kind of moral or military leadership being filled not by the United States but by Russia and now Iran. But there’s something in the strategy of the only man who actually HAS a strategy – Vladimir Putin – that I want to close this piece on the religion of liberalism with. Marco Rubio – the man WHO PREDICTED the invasion of Syria by Russia which so stunned and caught Obama off guard – NAILED Putin’s strategy:
“Vladimir Putin is deliberately targeting the non-ISIS rebels,” Rubio explains. “And here’s why: If he’s going to wipe out all the non-ISIS elements on the ground in Syria, then they can say: ISIS or Assad, there are no other options. We killed all the non-ISIS people.”
“And at that point, he’ll be able to force the world to support Assad, and that is what he is doing.”
Vladimir Putin is crushing all the non-Islamic State rebels, leaving only Assad’s regime and Islamic State. And his plan is then to force America to support Assad’s regime as the only viable alternative.
That is precisely what is happening with Christianity. We know damn well what it feels like to be a “non-ISIS rebel” in America right now. Whether it’s the Little Sisters of the Poor, whether it’s the Christian baker, or the Christian florist – whom a judge demanded the “personal ruin” of – or Kim Davis, the millions of Christians around the world who are being exterminated under the Obama presidency in numbers that have NEVER BEFORE IN ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY BEEN WITNESSED, Christians are being systematically wiped out more than any other group of people on earth. There’s a new Holocaust going on right now. And Obama and liberals are participating as much as the bystander of any vile event who does NOTHING participates in the horror they are standing by and allowing to happen.
By commission and by omission, Barack Obama is the world’s leading persecutor of Christians in the history of the world in terms of the sheer, mass numbers of Christians whom have suffered under him and as a result of his colossal failure.
Obama has said he is a Christian. He also said that “as a Christian” he was opposed to gay marriage. The latter statement turned out to be an outright lie, and the first one about Obama being a Christian is a lie as well. I have pointed out and documented how Obama’s theology has NOTHING whatsoever to do with biblical Christianity. He can go into a church and call himself a “Christian.” Just like I can lay down in my garage and call myself a “car.” But both statements are equally false.
You shall have no other gods before me, says liberalism. And every Christian who says or believes otherwise shall be devoted to destruction. Because liberalism is a rabid, religious faith. And all we like sheep have gone astray and need to be brought under the Stalinist boot heel for our own good and for the good, for the praise and for the glory, of the State.
That’s Ben Carson’s real sin. He’s “the Coon of the Year” to them. At least that’s what a liberal professor in a liberal Ivy League university with the liberal system of tenure protecting her says. She helps us get back to the God of the Bible – whom she calls “a white racist” – versus the liberal God also known as the State.
