At least the portion applied to freedom of religion.
The City of Belle Plaine has received pressure from atheists and Satanists to remove a war memorial that
featured a cross. After their efforts failed, the Satanic Temple proposed their own monument, called the “Baphometic Bowl of Wisdom.”
It is a black, steel cube. Inverted pentagrams (a universal Satanic symbol) are etched into the sides of the monument. A pitch black, overturned soldier’s helmet is planted on the top.
It is named after Baphomet, an androgynous half-goat, half-man demon.
Satanists are claiming that this monument respects veterans. And the city of Belle Plaine has accepted it.
I wonder how many years out America is from restricting or amending the 1st Amendment to the Constitution. Or more likely, no legal change will be made, but rather the spirit of freedom and tolerance for other beliefs, which is quickly eroding, will simply disappear.
This is the catch-22 of American freedom that allows the existence of beliefs and behaviors that undermine the core values it rests on.
For example, Libertarianism is completely untenable; as follows. Libertarianism > freedom of commerce, association, and travel > libertarian values allow no restrictions on who can move into the community or what values they should hold > new arrivals much prefer authoritarian policies > poof! Your free society is gone. Libertarian values restrict the group’s ability to maintain its libertarian community. Sown into core of the system is its own self-defeating value.
Same is true for Christian communities (or those who wished for one). When your societal ideal rests on freedom of religion, tolerance, acceptance, and not the Gospel of Jesus Christ, you’ll soon find you have no ability to influence your culture or community. Your own values require you to support the rights and access and influence of Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and even Satanic worship.
Well, that certainly is diverse.
As opposed to how I used to do it in high school, I actually read books now. I can’t believe how easy it was to get through class without actually reading the material, and I probably missed out on some classics. I have to re-read Animal Farm, but I digress….
I have more books that I’m currently reading than have completed for 2017.
Provided with no additional commentary.
You are witnessing insanity. I am not referring to the insanity of Islamic terror – that’s not insane, just demonic.
You are watching the destruction of a culture, built over thousands of years – destroyed in a few generations. I am not referring to the destruction of jihadis who just detonated a nail bomb to rip apart children, including 8-yr-old girls, as they enjoy an Ariana Grande concert.
The insanity belongs to the people of the West; the so-called “leaders” of democracy and liberal values. To those who continue to spout banal, poopy-talk like
The destruction is not by suicide vests, but by a domestic security policy that allows, nay invites, a foreign invasion on a scale unprecedented in human history. I say again – unprecedented in human history.
Former US Vice President, Dick Cheney, on Monday, began his attempts to prime the pump for a US war with Russia. Speaking at the Economic Times & Global Business Summit, Mr. Cheney made the case that the alleged Russian interference in the US 2016 presidential election “could be considered an act of war”.
It has been interesting to watch US media spend so much time on the Trump/Russia/election angle. It seemed their approach was to undermine the credibility and legitimacy of the President. Maybe they could get him into a bigger scandal; get him, or someone in his inner circle to make a false statement about any communications with someone in Russia in order to prosecute a process foul. But it seems our government and Deep State operatives, of which Dick Cheney is certainly a part, wants much more than that. I thought that after Hillary Clinton lost, they’d slow down with the war with Russia talks. Remember, during the 2016 election season, candidates from both parties were calling for the enforcement of no-fly zones over Syria. People with half a brain then knew that meant war with Russia. (The war-monger John McCain has been calling for war with Russia in Syria for more than 18 months now.)
But back to Dick Cheney. You know what? Never mind. We can probably trust a guy who was the Secretary of Defense during the first Iraq war, served on the Council of Foreign Relations, was CEO of an American multinational corporation, and one of the world’s largest oil field services companies, and was totally right about Iraq’s WMD’s after 2001.
Newly declassified CIA documents show that the CIA was paying journalists and media companies to plant stories or suppress others. Among them, the New York Times, Washington Post, Fortune Magazine, Los Angeles Times, and Wall Street Journal.
But that was way back in the 1950’s – 1970’s. Nothing like that happens today.
Of course a coordinated political hit must take place against AG Jeff Sessions before he rolls up all of the previous President’s DOJ officials or investigates any money laundering schemes (involving this guy who just suicided himself).
