Those whom God will destroy He first makes mad   May 10, 2016

A really good sermon below on the madness overtaking our culture, the natural resort of millions of souls rejecting God and His Truth.  But it’s more than just a natural effect, it is also a supernatural one.  God will allow our sins to destroy us.  We are very deep into the West’s final descent into madness.  A culture that can no longer tell male from female is one that is not long for this world, and it is one that is very far beyond any natural means of restoration:

Check out the bit from John Maynard Keynes.  He admits that as an atheist he both had a deliberate plan to destroy Christianity (which paints an entirely different light on his disastrous economic theories), and at the same time benefited from being raised in a still-Christian culture.  He knows that the post-Christian culture he helped create will be filled with emptiness and endless misery – and yet he still worked feverishly to that end?  Demonic possession, much?

In a world full of madmen the sane will be judged insane.  And since leftism is, more than anything else, an anti-Christian religion, not only will faithful Catholics be viewed as cray-cray, but as apostates and hateful bigots.  As just a bit of illustration of this future rushing into seemingly inevitable focus, a Harvard professor has declared that now that Christians have “definitively lost” the culture wars, they should be treated like Nazis:

Tushnet blames what he calls the “culture wars” on conservatives, and he says liberals should now make conservatives pay. “The culture wars are over; they lost, we won,” he writes in italics. Tushnet claims that conservatives “had opportunities to reach a cease fire, but rejected them in favor of a scorched earth policy.” [Remember: leftists always lie, leftists always project]

So what’s next? Tushnet explains: “the question now is how to deal with the losers in the culture wars.” And his answer isn’t comforting: “My own judgment is that taking a hard line (‘You lost, live with it’) is better than trying to accommodate the losers.”

Tushnet explains his unwillingness to respect the rights of the “losers”: “Trying to be nice to the losers didn’t work well after the Civil War, nor after Brown. (And taking a hard line seemed to work reasonably well in Germany and Japan after 1945.)”

Ah, yes, if the “losers” of the American “culture wars” are the functional equivalent of racists and Nazis, then Tushnet’s argument works wonderfully. But if Orthodox Jews, Roman Catholics, Evangelical Christians, Latter-day Saints, faithful Muslims, and other Americans who believe that marriage is the union of a man and woman are decent members of society, maybe Tushnet should reconsider his hostility.

When one holds religious beliefs with a white-hot intensity, then any deviation from those beliefs becomes totally unacceptable heresy, heresy that must be crushed at all costs.  The reason why Christians have lost the culture wars over the past several decades is because the faith of the leftists in their sexual pagan demonic paradise dystopia has been, on the whole, stronger than the faith of most Christians, and especially Catholics.

Ever notice how leftists, though truly few in number, constantly drive the terms of the debate in this country,  constantly have conservatives on the defensive (in spite of the hateful Harvard professor’s claims that conservatives somehow instigated the culture wars, which doesn’t even make sense, but what he really means is, how dare you have the temerity to even oppose me), and seem to win far more often than not?  Yes there are structural factors in their favor, but one major reason they have been overwhelmingly successful is that they practice their false religion on a 24/7 basis.  They have the courage of their convictions.  They are of the stronger faith, generally speaking (present company likely excepted, but, then again, are we really doing all we can?  Our leadership sure ain’t).

And now that they have won, they are not going to be generous winners. These are souls tortured by self-hatred and mental anguish, but the “beautiful” part of their religion is that it always gives them someone to blame for their personal failings (the exact contrary of Christianity).  It’s going to get very ugly.  They will be coming for us, but especially, our children.

Molon Labe.

Of course, this is why I say, leftism must be destroyed.

“Those whom God will destroy, He first makes mad.”

So that explains Mark Shea, huh?😉

A+++++++++ written across the room like Ralphie’s theme on getting a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas

Agreed. They have conviction, and they are willing to do anything to further their cause, even eat their own.

The way I see it playing out, Leftism uses Islam to subjugate Christianity, believing it can later control Islam. But Islam doesn’t play nice.

Barbara Hvilivitzky - May 11, 2016

However, we are taught that it is GOD who ‘uses’ peoples like Islam to chastise us. I’ve been reading the little booklet “Trustful Surrender to Divine Providence” in part by Father Jean Baptiste Saint Jure and Saint Claude de la Columbiere. Both these good priests state that ultimately everything that happens, good and bad, is God’s Holy Will. We can get caught up with the distinction between His direct Will and His permissive Will but really it is very simple. When He allows evil to strike us it must be for us to suffer – either as a chastisement, or a trial He wants us to have. It’s hard to see His Will being good when looking at the evil in the Church and outside her. But where does it all come from if not His Will?

In an ironic twist, Professor Tushnet is the father of the “gay and Catholic” writer Eve Tushnet.

He’s spiking the ball a little early, though, what with the current rapid rise of the alt-right to prominence. These guys aren’t your father’s “conservatives”, and they won’t roll over and play nice just because you call them mean names.

Tantumblogo - May 10, 2016

Agreed. Not sure how right they are, but they don’t GAF big time.

Murray - May 10, 2016

Well, a movement that comprises an uneasy and occasionally prickly alliance between anarcho-libertarians, ethno-nationalists, and Catholic/Orthodox traditionalists (to name a few) is going to have a … diversity of viewpoints. But they do share a fundamental hostility to liberalism in all its forms, very much including the worthless mainstream right. The mainstream discourse is so marinated in the premises of liberalism that its adherents don’t even have the vocabulary to engage with the alt-right interlopers, so they just point and shriek instead.

But perhaps the radical leftists like Professor Tushnet sense this as well, and are attempting to declare victory in the hope of cementing their gains before the real anti-liberals turn up in force.

I’m sure that last sentence has a great deal to do with it.

You left out the most important part of Tushnet’s rant and gloat of how libs won the war over conservatives. He ends saying, and I quote. “Of course all bets are off if Donald Trump becomes President. ” The Commies really do not want Trump. Wake up, conservatives defeat Sanders and Clinton, and vote TRUMP!

Tantumblogo - May 10, 2016

Typically such statements are famous last words. No one will be happier or more surprised than me if Trump turns out to be a great conservative leader, but, then again, see my next post.
