D.C. is a Cesspool: The Manure Keeps Piling Up

flagBy refusing to resist the Big-Government machinations of Washington, D.C.; by hiding behind an erroneous, passive, and compliant interpretation of Romans 13; by fearing the IRS more than they fear God; by worshipping the state more than they worship God; by refusing to teach their congregations the Biblical and Natural Law principles of liberty, America’s pulpits are the ones that are the most culpable in the deterioration and destruction of our blessed country. Instead of blaming the abortionists, gay rights activists, pornographers, and drug dealers, they need to be looking in the mirror.

Over the decades, the  so-called Christian right have made a god out of government.   They have put their absolute trust in the Republican Party, regardless of how much big government Republicans promote,  to the point that  support for the GOP has, for all intents and purposes, made the Republican Party more sacred than their own churches.

The Religious Right was absolutely deaf and dumb to the ubiquitous unconstitutional and unlawful conduct committed during Bush’s eight years in office. In fact, virtually everything that President Barack Obama is currently doing to circumvent constitutional government was copied from G.W. Bush’s political playbook.

The fact is, the government in Washington, D.C., is the chief culprit in America’s moral and cultural tailspin.  DC is a cesspool whose leakage has spilled over into the entire country.  And the more pastors and Christians refuse to resist the ever-burgeoning power and influence of Washington’s unconstitutional manipulation and intimidation of our states and communities, the deeper the manure gets.  Yet, so many pastors and Christians continue to quote Romans 13 as justification to sit back and do nothing.  “Obey the government.” “Don’t resist the government.”

If the pastors would stop supporting this out-of-control federal leviathan that is swallowing our liberties, if they would stop preaching their pansy, don’t-make-anybody-mad sermonettes,  if they would stop sucking up to these corrupt politicians, most of the problems they complain about would not exist.

Why do you think your public schools are so liberal and socialistic in their philosophy?  Why do your public school textbooks promote sodomy and other aberrant lifestyles?  It started back in 1979 when the United States Department of Education (DOE) was created by President Jimmy Carter as a payoff to the National Education Association (NEA) for their political support.

Ever since its creation, the DOE has coerced, intimidated, harangued, and cajoled State and local school districts to adopt its socialistic agenda.  Get rid of the DOE, and local schools would be able to teach what the people of the local school districts preferred, which in many school districts would mean old-fashioned American values.

The reason you cannot afford to build a new home is because of federal departments such as the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA).  The reason you cannot afford to buy property or do much of anything with the property you own is because of federal departments such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The reason you cannot get a loan at your “local” bank–or the reason you lost your business, house, or job during the past five years–is mostly because of the draconian and damnable decisions of the Federal Reserve.   When is the last time you heard any preacher in America say a word of protest against OSHA, the EPA, or the Federal Reserve?

Where did abortion-on-demand come from?  Did you vote for it?  Did your State Assembly  vote for it?  No! It was forced upon the states by the US Supreme Court.  Yet, when Congressman Ron Paul of Texas, on several occasions, introduced the Sanctity of Life Act, which would have, in essence, overturned Roe vs. Wade and give the states authority to restrict or outlaw abortion-on-demand, what did America’s pulpits do to support it? NOTHING!  The GOP leadership didn’t support Dr. Paul’s pro-life bill, so neither did America’s pulpits.

And where are America’s pulpits regarding the current attempt by Washington, D.C., to make criminals out of God-fearing Americans who believe in the Second Amendment and who own a semi-automatic rifle?  They are AWOL!  They are deserters from battle.  They are traitors to freedom and the Bill of Rights. They follow constitutionally ignorant Christian leaders such as Franklin Graham and Richard Land, who by the way is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, a notorious Big-Government, globalist organization.

The majority of our  pastors and churches actively support the DOE, the DOJ, OSHA, the EPA, the Federal Reserve, etc.  By their complicity with Big Government zealots in D.C., our pulpits are culpable in the escalation of virtually every piece of vice and villainy that currently engulfs our country. Every bit of it can be traced back to the manipulation, coercion, intimidation, regulation, oppression, bastardization, calculation, constriction, repression, and contamination spewing forth from Washington, D.C.

Give the pulpits back to honest and courageous pastors who will preach the Bible without fear of losing the tax exempt status that Washington  hangs over their heads, and give America back to the states and to the people who could enact their own civil laws and cultural norms without interference from Washington, D.C.,  then  watch the re-birth of freedom take place; watch tens of thousands of communities return to the streets of Mayberry; watch the crime rates drop like an anvil; watch the demand for abortion drop; watch education test scores skyrocket; watch people go to work; watch houses being built; and watch prosperity thrive.

Sure, I realize that there would be hundreds of large metropolitan areas and socialist dominated states that would continue to push the same big government programs and policies we have now.   So be it.  If people want to live in those pig pens, let them.  But give people an opportunity to choose for themselves communities that respect old-fashioned decency, honesty, integrity, limited government, true republicanism, etc., and see how many people would flee to these refreshing, modern-day Cities of Refuge.

Charles Finney, the “father of revivalism” was right: “If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it.”
