The Bible and Politics

Developing a Christian Worldview Part 2 by GKC

Whoever said that politics and religion don’t mix must not know anything about either of them.

Politics and religion are inextricably linked because one is foundational, and the other resultant. As the oft-repeated Andrew Breitbart line goes, “Politics is downstream from culture,” and “culture” starts with the “cult” or “worship.” Politics is an expression of your worldview, and your religion is your worldview.

Five Points to Consider: The Shooting of Jacob Blake – Kenosha, Wisconsin

By Ken Gulley

As Wisconsin reels from riots following the viral shooting of Jacob Blake; media, politicians, celebrities, activists, and athletes have not missed an opportunity to condemn America all over again. Major sports have canceled their activities in one big virtue signal, coming to their own conclusion that the officers involved are guilty of wrongdoing before the facts come to light

The story they pitch is the same, “Police kill black people for no reason.” They offer up a new holy martyr on the mantel Social Justice as means to allow Marxist-Leftist policy creep.

Jesus and Politics

Developing a Christian Worldview: Part 1 by GKC

I received a request a couple of weeks ago to talk about “Jesus and Politics,” namely, what sort of politics we ought to take from Jesus’ teaching. It’s a good question, but a tricky one – it being all too easy to topple over the side of a sound argument and crash into the abyss of self-delusion and nonsense. So how do we answer this question?

With a bit of metaphor and philosophy, some straight-talk, and an honest, real-world take.

The Soft Bigotry of Low Expectations

By Ken Gulley

“Our enemy is the soft bigotry of low expectations.”

Condoleezza Rice borrowed this phrase to ignite a fire in certain underserved education communities.

Today, the phrase is best used to describe Leftist treatment of minority communities, as if dealing with an ignorant and unruly child: “Lowered expectations.”

The Myth of Black Lives Matter

By Joshua Weigert
July 7th, 2020

Since its conception, Black Lives Matter (BLM) has caused a severe division in the American political landscape for various reasons. BLM was founded in 2013 as a result of the acquittal of George Zimmerman for the death of Trayvon Martin. BLM viewed this verdict as injustice and demanded societal reforms. Subsequent high-profile black deaths in the years following led to more and more protesting by BLM.

Because of BLM’s media attention, this has led to certain confusions and myths pertaining to BLM to arise. Most of these confusions and myths relate to what BLM actually is. The most prevalent myth of them all is that BLM is just an innocent slogan fighting for black rights. Because of this, there is a significant pushback against BLM.

No, You Should Not Be Ashamed to Celebrate the 4th of July

By Joshua Weigert
July 3rd, 2020

For the past several days, there has been much talk about “canceling” the 4th of July. The idea behind canceling Independence Day is not a surprise: America is a terrible, awful, no good place. The reasons for this canceling are equally not surprising: Racism towards African-Americans, Native Indians, and general anti-LGBTQAAIIPEIEIOAT&T sentiments. 

Yes, the history of America was not always great and, at times, profoundly evil. Slavery and Jim Crow laws are examples of how systemic racism and bigotry were able to run rampant. However, this does not mean that America, the American Constitution, or the Declaration of Independence, is rooted in racism and/or evil. Few more profound words have ever been written than “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that ALL men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” 

THIS is what America was founded on. THIS is what America strives towards. THIS is also what leftists are trying to destroy.

More Fake Noose

By Ken Gulley

As America continues to reel from the dilemma posed by the purely political response to Covid-19 and nationwide protests against perceived racial injustice, a sudden rash of “Fake Hate Crimes” have gained national attention.

If you remember the mid-20-teens and the rash of fake hate crimes after the first Black Lives Matter movement after Ferguson, you probably remember this website tracking confirmed fakes: lickity-Link.

Well the new spurt of fake hate crimes seem a bit different. They’re not being falsely perpetuated by the victim but rather being stoked by third parties and the media.

Penitence Not Required

George Floyd wasn’t a perfect man, but none of us are. Floyd does not need to be perfect to accept the fact that his death was a horrible tragedy and injustice at the hands of a government agent.

With that in mind, I would like to dispel with the idea that you must agree with all of the BLM narrative and become an activist, otherwise “if you are silent you are complicit / racist / etc.”

Yes, White People CAN Talk About Race Issues

I don’t know who needs to hear this, but you have a voice and CAN talk about race issues. Whether you are white, black, yellow, purple or neon orange, no one has the right to tell you to be quiet and that your voice doesn’t matter.

As a white male, I have been bombarded with posts on social media about how my white voice needs to “shut up” and listen to the voices of African-Americans and other visible minorities. I think listening is important. But I will not be silenced.
