Top Ten reasons why Leftists
hate the Ten Commandments!
Founding father Samuel Adams once wrote,
"Religion and good morals are the only solid foundation of public liberty and happiness."
So why today, does the progressive left fear the Ten Commandments? Here are my “Top Ten reasons why leftists hate the Ten Commandments.”
#10 To recognize coveting as a sin would negate jealously. Jealously that leads to discontent and resentment that ultimately contributes to feelings of envy that evolve into hatred which is the foundation of Marxist ideology that foments both “class envy” as well “class warfare.” Truly Neo-Marxist phrases such as “taxing millionaires, billionaires, and corporate jets” permeate the dogma we hear each day. Leftist also throw race in there just to add a little color to the “class warfare” thing.
#9 Bearing false witness or lying negates the ideological propaganda where all things “big” are synonymous with “evil.” Such as big business, big oil, big tobacco, big auto makers, big pharmaceuticals et al. We will just ignore, “big” government bureaucracy, “big” trial lawyers association, and “big” labor. Or my favorite, “homosexuality is a normal and healthy lifestyle.”
#8 Stealing is a requirement of “big” government in order to take from future generations in order to buy votes today. This theft takes the form of: Social Security, Medicare, income tax, sales tax, property tax etc. Soon the government will steal from our future generations the cost of the unfunded mandates upwards of $100 trillion (Refer to #9 and #10 above).
# 7 Adultery would require one to acknowledge any sexual relationship outside of marriage as wrong. This puts into question the validity of the “most ethical administration” remember, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman . . .” (Refer to #9 above)? Then we have the handsome Senator John Edwards and his narcissistic self indulgence.
#6 Thou shall not kill – I’m sorry, so much for a woman’s choice to endure a lifetime of emotional trauma, guilt, depression, disease and regret. Then there is the hideous prospect of euthanasia soon to become the official policy of Obama-Care’s death panels.
#5 Honor your mother and father is permissible in the eyes of progressive leftists only if the mother is single and “big” government is the father. Also this tenet would not allow the multitude of desired relationships honoring: your father and father; mother and mother; father and sister; father and brother; mother and sister; sister and brother; sister and dog; etc. (Refer to #9 above)
#4 When it comes to the Sabbath, “leftists” desire the eventual expulsion of the words “(Sunday excepted)” written into Article I Section 7 of the United States Constitution. Working seven days a week means more tax revenue for “big” government (Refer to #8 above). The only holy days in the progressive mind are the: “pay your fair share day” on April 15th and International Mother Earth Day on April 22nd.
#3 Using the Lord’s name in vain is the standard fare of profanity with the Hollywood, Hip Hop and MTV types. According to the leftists, it is a requirement that you be offended!
#2 Graven images in the form of crucifixes suspended in urine or the portrait of the Virgin Mary smeared with feces is an acceptable image to display in public at taxpayers expense (Refer to #8 above).
#1 Only secular “big” government whose entities include the: Environmental Protection Agency; Occupational Safety and Health Administration; Department of Education; Department of Labor; Internal Revenue Service; et al. All of which are suitable to worship superior to God and man, excuse me “humans.”
Who are these leftists that fear the Ten Commandments? Have you heard of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)? They are a group of “civil libertarians” who began defending American “Bolshevik” sympathizers during the “Red Scare” of the 1920s. “Bolsheviks” were the “communists” victors in the Russian Revolution that morphed into the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union was a godless entity that placed the power and supremacy of the “socialist state” above religion. Atheism is the official religion of communist world wide. Their godless culture brought horrible death and destruction totaling over 100 million souls. What is the total number of deaths in our country attributed to “pro-choice” advocates?
If you visit the ACLU’s website, they pride themselves in that:
The ACLU is our nation's guardian of liberty, working daily in courts, legislatures and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country. These rights include:
• Your First Amendment rights - freedom of speech, association and assembly; freedom of the press, and freedom of religion.
(see #9 above). Actually, the First Amendment states:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Now I ask you. Which word came first? Was it the word “religion” or “speech?” Of course the ACLU web site completely skips over the Second Amendment, but don’t worry the first thing the Bolsheviks, Nazis, and all tyrants throughout history did after assuming power was to disarm the law abiding citizens!
As always, I shall remain, In Search of Our GOD Given Liberties!
