In one particular closing argument segment of his program, CNN mouthpiece Chris Cuomo declared it rank hypocrisy for Christians who celebrate Christmas to not fling the border gates wide open for the caravan swarm amassing along the U.S./Mexican border. Cuomo pontificated, “No small irony that Christians are getting ready to celebrate the story of Christmas, which is the exact story that we are trying to celebrate here. The poor and unwanted who wound up bringing the savior into this world in a stable, rejected. Just as we are doing now. This is who we are now and it must be exposed.”
Such exegeted buffoonery is to be expected from a theological ignoramus who also revels in the delights of sodomite matrimony and the unbridled infanticide of abortion.
The key to the most complete understanding possible (for no human is capable of understanding all of it) is to take all of the canonical text (both Old and New Testaments) and to synthesize these together rather than to rely upon a single textual portion isolated from the comprehensive whole. On this account, Chris Cuomo is as woefully lacking as his reflections upon the Bill of Rights as evidenced by his pronouncements regarding free speech and the right to bear arms.
First, Mary and Joseph were not the unwanted migrating for the purposes of expecting to find a more prosperous residence in a land in which they possessed no ancestral ties or against which they had a legitimate claim. From Luke 2:1-6, the objective student of theology reads that Mary and Joseph traveled from Nazareth to Bethlehem to comply with the decree of the Roman census for the purposes primarily of taxation. Thus, this narrative had nothing to do with immigration policy.
If a pulpiteer wanted to connect the account with something to make it relatable for contemporary audiences, the homily ought to have referenced the disturbingly intrusive census questions (since that was why a pregnant woman was required to plod across rugged countryside (tradition often depicts, on the back of a burro) or overly burdensome tax regulations such as those threatening small microbusinesses to submit proceeds to every conceivable local revenue jurisdiction in a country that spans the breadth of an entire continent.
Chris Cuomo is correct that Scripture does require compassion. However, he is even more exegetically negligent in failing to point out that this quality is circumscribed with boundaries and requirements not only on the part of the party obligated to extend it but also on the part of the ones considered to be receiving it.
Leftists love to point out how Scripture admonishes fair treatment of the stranger dwelling amidst the children of Israel. Interesting how those exhibiting an enthusiasm for the detailed oracles of God in this particular instance grow noticeably silent or even dismissive of the obligations expected of those not hailing from the Covenant people but extended the blessing of being allowed to sojourn among them.
For example, these aliens were not allowed to carry on in their heathen customs in a manner that would have polluted the sanctified culture. Those granted sanctuary would have been required to comport themselves by a body of standards far more restrictive than anything that would be imposed in Trumpist America.
Leftists priding themselves somewhat as Bible scholars will no doubt respond that these statutory rigors are part of the Old Testament covenant. These provisions do not apply to the New Testament which is based upon forgiveness and love.
So is that really how religionists of a more progressive outlook want it? So in an exaggerated Jim Carrey mannerism, “ALLLLLRIGHTY then!!”
It follows that the parameters of God's fulfilled covenant are circumscribed by the portion of Scripture referred to as the New Testament. Those wanting to invoke its protections are just as obligated to abide by its regulations.
As such, Romans 13:4 says of the magistrate, “For he is a minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain; for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil” Therefore, if Chris Cuomo is going to admonish compliance with the whole counsel of God, shouldn't viewers expect to see the broadcaster deliver an exhortation urging those wanting entrance into the United States to comply with all duly enacted regulations and policies deemed necessary by the American people as enacted through their government as established by a ratified constitution?
In the conclusion of his remarks, Cuomo equated the migrant caravan at the border demanding entrance into the United States or threatening an undefined “or else” with the Holy Family. These two demographic quantities are nothing alike in terms of the responses to their respective circumstances.
For example, the most basic characteristic one cannot help but notice about the caravan is its incessant and forceful making of demands. For it was not the orderly way in which the throng went about filing petitions for entrance that prompted border enforcement personnel to respond with the strategic deployment of the compound colloquially referred to as “tear gas”.
The Holy Family, on the other hand, are not on the record in Scripture as to making any demand whatsoever. The account is not even clear as to whether or not they told anyone else of their plight.
In dramatic interpretations of the Gospel account more likely to give the kids more charismatic than those relegated to the role of shepherds but not quite the apple polisher of the lad usually selected to play Joseph, the innkeeper is made out to be a bigger equus africanus asinus than the one Mary is depicted as riding into Bethlehem on for sticking a pregnant woman in a barn. However, an innkeeper is not even mentioned in terms of explicit divine revelation.
There is next to no background provided as to how it was that Mary and Joseph ended up in the stable. All theories speculating as to whether it was at the suggestion of the innkeeper because of Joseph's pleading or because the sanctified couple quickly dashed in for a modicum of privacy because Mary couldn't any longer keep the blessed event contained within her virgin womb with the alternative being not to lay down the head of the little Lord Jesus gently on the hay but rather letting the crown of glory plop onto the dusty streets of Palestine.
It can be stated with near certainty that Mary and Joseph acted nothing like the migrant horde amassing along the border with Mexico or even the typical hipster millennial mother that demands accolades and extravagant concessions for simply having procreated. At no time did Joseph hurl rocks at the inn, threatening to burst through the door uninvited. At no time did Mary demand that those within earshot alter their routines to accommodate the circumstances in which she found herself or provide her with a lactation room more extravagantly furnished than a five star resort.
As an inherently emotional season, many are prone to turn off for the holidays those defenses that usually protect the discerning from being taken advantage of during other times of year. However, it is in such moments that those bent on undermining both our heritage and our liberty are prone to be at perhaps their most deceptive.

Is Albert Mohler Disturbed Enough Over Southern Baptist “Racist Past” To Renounce His Posh Lifestyle?

In one essay titled “Time For Truce On 'War Against Christmas'”, Leslie Handler goes as far as to call this annual Yuletide dispute “fabricated”. She proceeds to equate those outraged to the point of articulated disagreement against this annual campaign to undermine American culture with the perpetrators of “shootings on ball fields with lawmakers or places of worship filled with people praying or bars filled with our youth who perhaps have not yet learned to hate.”
The sort of naiveté thinking that youth in their early twenties likely to be found in a bar have not already figured out how to hate is proof enough why a number rushing to the defense of the Christmas cause think that these attacks against the holiday serve as proof that Western civilization may be closer to the point of collapse than many realize or are willing to admit. The reasoning is little better elsewhere in the column.
Leslie Handler insists that the movement to expunge the most explicitly sectarian examples of Christmas commemoration from government sponsored venues is based upon the separation of church and state which Handler insists the country is built upon. But from this errant soil springs equally errant fruit.
Though it might be part of the jurisprudence imposed under threat of Waco-style law enforcement for failure to comply, the sort of separation of church and state as advocated by Leslie Handler is found nowhere in the First Amendment as enumerated by the Founding Fathers nor imposed upon the states through the ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment. What the First Amendment says is that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..”
What that means is that a non-Christian student cannot be compelled to accept or affirm Christian doctrine against their will under threat of punishment. Nowhere does the Constitution say that the vast majority should be forbidden from articulating their most sincerely held beliefs or that entire aspects of the nation's heritage should be ignored to the point of suppression because a minuscule but highly-organized activist few demand such at the hands of radical secularists or combustible pyrotechnics at the hands of the militant adherents of certain heathen creeds.
In the name of faddish ideologies such as multiculturalism, diversity and inclusion, it is argued that those holding to any number of bizarre notions no matter how far outside the mainstream or even inimical to public order, mental stability and bodily integrity should not only be allowed to have their say publicly. Those within earshot had better not respond with anything but gleeful enthusiastic acceptance if they do not want to face catastrophic consequences such as the loss of employment or the opportunity to advance academically.
Leslie Handler writes in response to a caller of a talk show suggesting that if a parent does not want their children singing “Oh Holy Night” perhaps the child shouldn't be in the school chorus, “Would this woman really want her child singing a religious song honoring a faith other than hers? Would she believe it was OK for her Christian child to sing a Muslim song praising Allah?”
Christian have been forced to do the equivalent of this for quite awhile now. This has been going on for years if not decades.
For example, in Virginia in 2015 and in West Virgina in 2018, students were forced to copy in Arabic the shahada, the ritual proclamation indicating that those that recite the creed have been initiated into the Islamic faith. At least if an atheist whelp reneges on what he sang during a Christmas carol, even among the most die hard of contemporary Christians, the urchin is not viewed as fair game for execution unlike in the eyes of certain Muhammadean sectarians.
Some time ago in Prince George's County, Maryland, pupils studying a unit on ancient Egypt did not simply review the beliefs from the realm of the Pharaohs from the standpoint of “This is what the ancient Egyptians believed, class.” Rather the students composed letters to pagan deities beseeching advice (one might argue that is the essence of prayer) and crafted amulets for the purposes of warding off evil spirits. One must ask would the ACLU let it quietly slide if on a segment on the Middle Ages students would have nonchalantly been allowed to bead their own rosary or paint their own icon?
With so much allowed to take place in the public schools sounding more like something out of the Defense Against The Dark Arts course at Hogwarts rather than the technologically sophisticated curriculum of the twenty-first century public school, it is only natural that Christian parents and students are going to be a little agitated when all manner of heathens, deviants, and subversive foreigners whose primary loyalties lie with the homelands they fled rather than the one lavishing them with an assortment of handouts often denied to those forced to provide these luxuries to newcomers and others refusing to lift a finger are glossed over when the time comes to speak allowed their own truth.
Often the beneficiaries of this public largess are even applauded as superior to those retaining loyalty to the values that made America great in the first place. This sting is made even worse in the cavalcade of diversity when traditionalist, instead of being given their turn in the spotlight that insists no viewpoint is more important than any other, are told to sit down and shut up over alleged atrocities that those alive today had no role in perpetrating.
In the Brave New World in which we find ourselves, Heather has two mommies. Entire classes are often expected to miss recess for an entire month to symbolize solidarity with the Akmed's and Omars of the world during Ramadan. White kids are compelled to feel bad all through the month of February over injustices and that long since been overcome. Female students are now the ones punished over biological males taking leaks trousers down in from of them standing in the little girls' room. These parents ought to be incredulous over claims insisting that somehow the child of the village atheist is irrevocably harmed by lyrics hoping for peace on earth and goodwill to all men.
Leslie Handler in her column admonishes, “Take a moment to listen to someone else. Learning new perspectives can be a good thing.”
Both objective surveys and man on the street comedy interview routines alike prove the disturbing widespread ignorance regarding American customs, institutions, and cultural practices. As such, the education system would doing all children a favor by at least pointing out that there is more to the holiday season than a week off at the end of the year.

Do Those Outraged By Woman’s Rant For White Nation Also Intend To Similarly Condemn La Raza’s Plans To Kill All Whites Living In The American Southwest?

Would a man whose life had been ruined by fallacious or overly burdensome child support obligations have been allowed to interdict a Capitol Hill elevator for the purposes of verbally berating a United States Senator? If not, then neither should have an hysterical woman suffering an emotional break down over unproven allegations against Judge Kavanaugh.
In his analysis of the Kavanaugh/Ford testimony on “The Glenn Beck Show”, Bill O’Reilly said that he no longer watches cable news because even Fox News pundits say that which they think will get them money. As such, does O’Reilly renounce the fortunate he accumulated as the public face of that network for nearly two decades along with that from hawking the “Killing Nearly Everything Under The Sun” line of books night after night on his network broadcast?
A Washington Post column is absolutely correct. The Brett Kavanaugh debate is a perfectly valid barometer to determine whether or not someone is worthy to date. Because how can a man trust a woman that believes that one doesn't need actual proof to move forward with abuse allegations and why risk end up siring such dimwitted offspring?
Contrary to Fox News' fawning praise of the Trump of regime, is ISIS really "utterly destroyed"? For the danger of Islamist jihad is that it does not need much of a centralized headquarters in order to present a formidable continued threat.
On SermonAudio, a pastor against Halloween said that he gives out bags of candy containing a gospel tract. But isn’t that the moral equivalent of slipping a tract along with a dollar into the thong of a stripper or giving a jihadist a discount on fertilizer if we are to believe Halloween is as evil as these homilists insist?
In an anti-Halloween homily posted at SermonAudio, it was stated that, if those in Hell could return today, these souls would plead with us “not to celebrate the things we do today”. That is a euphemism for trick or treating. What the pastor is preaching is a form of works righteousness. How is that different than what the Catholic church (which the pastor deliberately bad mouthed earlier in the sermon) allegedly teaches? If the damned returned from Hell, it is doubtful the primary thing they wished to convey would be their regret about accepting a few autumnal confections filled with nougat while cavorting in costume. If we are to believe Baptist theories of soteriology, wouldn’t the message instead be believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved?
In a Halloween homily posted at SermonAudio, a pastor condemned churches that hold Trunk or Treat but conveyed that he hands out bag of candy with a tract. But isn’t that the equivalent of condemning visitation of the local brothel but seeing nothing wrong with inviting over a call girl from an escort service.
Are pastors that admonish avoiding Halloween celebration on the grounds of the potential harm that can befall children that night such as molestation also going to suggest a similar policy regarding church functions given nearly the same horror known to be perpetrated against the carnally innocent in numerous ecclesiastical venues?
Regarding shrill banshees jacked out of shape about the HimToo movement. A man can’t be compelled to want to spend time with a woman that doesn’t know her place.
Regarding shrill banshees jacked out of shape about the HimToo movement. If a woman has an inherent right to say “no”, doesn’t a man have just as much an inherent right not to ask in terms of refusing to interact in the first place?
Ridicule has erupted over the HimToo hashtag over men refusing to date in light of abuse allegations that fly too quickly and believed too easily. The mockery is proof that this alleged call for justice is not about eliminating questionable behavior but rather a euphemism for the confiscatory redistribution of resources and power not unlike the other concerns hijacked throughout the history of leftwing revolutionary upheaval. For just as no man has the right (to utilize the sort of Biblical language these sorts of Marxist reprobates usually despise) defraud the body of a woman, no woman has the right or legitimate expectation to defraud the pocketbooks or bank accounts of men that don't deem these skanks an acceptable risk.
When CNN propagandist Don Lemon insists that protests should be allowed to take place anywhere, does he intend to be consistent and advocate that sidewalks in front of abortion clinics be considered one of these acceptable venues?
In an anti-Halloween exposition, a Baptist minister pointed out that the Puritans did not want anything to do with Halloween. As I recall, they didn’t cotton up to well to Baptists either. So should we similarly still be opposed to Baptists now because the Puritans did not like them back then?
But does Elizabeth Warren possess more Native American DNA than any other average American? And don’t such DNA tests prove that there is more to race and ethnicity beyond that of a mere social construct leftist social engineers only seem to insist must be set aside if it buttresses traditionalist American assumptions and perspectives?
Donald Trump’s refusal to donate to charity if Elizabeth Warren could prove she was Native American is still a less devastating broken promise than “Read my lips. No new taxes” and “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”
There’s still more proof that the little Black kid might have sexually assaulted a woman than Judge Kavanaugh having done anything illegal in terms of taking carnal liberties.
Propagandist Trevor Noah laughing at footage of a White person calling another Caucasian a “White lady”. And that is different than Blacks like President Obama having to constantly remind us of his color how?
Regarding those opposed to dating in favor of “courtships”. So it is inappropriate for an unchaperoned couple to go out to dinner, bowling, or a movie but apparently Ruth can spend all night alone with Boaz in his bedroom and this is supposed to be the ideal Christian love story?
Meal kits. Aren’t these just a marketing trick to get hipsters to prepare their own food? How are these any different than how people eat that have made the vast majority of meals at home except for the jacked up price?

Interesting how we the common rabble often have to swear near-feudal oaths of fealty that our own remarks submitted as letters to the editor have not been published elsewhere before such content will even be considered.
Instead, Romney extols, Americans ought not look to the press as an enemy but rather as an essential component of democracy.
At times, the President has not only gone overboard in his attacks on the mainstream media but crossed over that boundary into the territory of scathing remarks of little bearing on the issue at hand directed at particular correspondents.
But neither should the danger of journalistic outlets claiming to report Joe Friday’s “nothing but the facts” spinning those in a way more befitting admitted opinion commentators to subtly advance an agenda or even parading outright fallacies for this purpose be downplayed.
In his own column, Romney (probably unwittingly) shows how this is possible without even realizing it.
Romney writes in gushing praise of establishment journalism, “it opened our eyes to the sexual abuse of children by priests”.
Interesting how he doesn’t even reference similar abuses at the hands of his own beloved Mormon Church that interjects itself into the lives of families creating barriers between parents and children that no members of any legitimate religion ought to put up with or allow.

Would these bigshot women now making a fuss about the antics that take place at teen and college parties settle for the sorts of men that did not attend such functions now in second rate occupations because they do not succeed in those professions that require a more predatory nature that would be able to provide the posh lifestyle these sorts of women usually demand?
So if allegations of sexual misconduct without proof are to now serve as the basis of blocking the accused from public office, why can’t claims of what transpires at places such as Bohemian Grove be used to remove elites from positions of influence?
So what is it going to be? When Judge Kavanaugh was initially nominated, critics responded that they preferred a jurist with more “real world experience”. By this, it was meant that they did not think he was necessarily debauched enough with a number of aborted fetuses left in the wake of a lifestyle embracing the spirit of the age with gusto. But apparently now neither is he acceptable for perhaps having wallowed in the might makes right, if it feels good do it mentalities we are expected to endorse for the purposes of eliminating the traditional morality that prevents the species from achieving greater evolutionary heights and levels of consciousness.
If a pastor never calls on anyone to pray nor solicits volunteers to do so, is it fair to condemn from the pulpit the amorphous unnamed in the congregation with allegations about being afraid to pray aloud?
So if hardline Baptists can look down their noses at those that don’t wear ties to church, what is so wrong with Catholic, Anglican or Lutheran clerics looking down their noses at Baptist ministers that do not wear vestments or collared clergy shirts?
If we have come to the point in society where it is now deemed inappropriate in an open judicial or legislative forum for a man to ask at a respectable physical distance questions regarding the validity of an alleged incident, isn’t that pretty much an admission by those making this demand that women are too mentally unstable or fragile to handle the pressures of policy and government? For if one is going to crumble before an inquisitive Senator, why do we think those of that gender would be able to handle the ruthlessness of an Islamist, Red Chinese, or Russian Neo-Soviet interrogator as a prisoner during a time of war? Dr. Ford is, after all, supposedly an academic used to the rigors of intense discussion and not a laundry room scrubwoman or sheltered debutante.
Leftwing propagandists are having a hearty laugh at a Russian wench tossing a concoction of water and bleach onto the laps of guys she finds manspreading on public transportation. Wonder if this would be found so funny if a similar kind of low grade chemical warfare was conducted against WOMMMMMMEN exposing enough cleavage to make a baby hungry or a skirt yanked up to, as my mom used to say, their who-ha.
So if it turns out two others assaulted Dr. Ford as is now being reported, will this become about pursuing justice wherever that might lead or will this incident quietly drop from both media and judicial attention given that the intended target can no longer be destroyed by these allegations?
If a woman over the age of consent did not like what was transpiring at a particular party to the point that the worrisome activity ranked of criminality, why would she return to similarly administered soirées on multiple occasions if she otherwise comported the rest of her existence with no evidence of coercion? And if a college age dude that hung around high school parties ought to be castigated as a pervert, deviant or sex addict, shouldn’t the same suspicion be directed at a college aged female as well?
Apparently media snowflakes are gripped with mental breakdowns over President Trump’s articulation of the phrase “con job”. Yet these are the same sorts that can’t go three words without uttering a profanity and have little problem with raunchy novels about women that get their kicks being chained up or flogged by rich men.
Judge Kavanaugh likely isn’t a sexual predator. However, what other manner of psychosis grips his mind to have propelled him to have made and kept a calendar that detailed?
In the fall 2018 edition of the Eerdman’s Academic Catalog is a book titled “Burying White Privilege: Resurrecting A Bad Ass Christianity” by Miguel A De La Torre. Torree is a Professor of Latinx Studies at Iliff School Of Theology and apparently an ordained Southern Baptist. One chapter within the work is titled “The Fallacy Of Whiteness”. So would Eerdman’s allow for the publication of a text by a Professor of “White Studies” to badmouth the racial grievance industry (particularly those wings of it derived from Hispanosupremacism)? Just as important, would such a scholar be allowed to retain his ministerial credentials with the Southern Baptist Convention?
In an analysis of the encounter between Marco Rubio and Alex Jones, it was dismissively quipped on BlazeTV that Jones believes that space aliens knocked over the World Trade Center. Even if Jones did, would that be any more bizarre than the Mormonism that Glenn Beck professes, a religion holding that God was once a man from the planet Kolob and that you too can one day become a god of your own world if you refrain from coffee and warmed tea?
The legislators now outraged at flatulence jokes probably back in the day supported government grants for “artworks” depicting crucifixes submerged in urine, portraits of the Virgin Mary smeared with dung, and photos of men with whips protruding from their backsides
Propagandists feigning concern over Judge Kavanaugh simmering with anger certainly don’t seem to mind the expression of that sentiment when Black Lives Matter insurgents loot electronics outlets and hair care establishments.
If you believe the Comcast Internet Essentials for deadbeats commercial that students are using the net to complete calculus assignments, I have a bridge you might be interested in purchasing.
An Atlantic Monthly Magazine article is criticizing Mormons for once desiring to be a “White and Delightsome people”. Will similar condemnation be heaped upon Jews seeking to retain a distinctive ethnic or racial component of their spiritual identity?
It has been argued that, because of his combative responses during his Senate confirmation hearing, that Judge Kavanaugh does not have the temperament to dispassionately adjudicate the conflicting claims of the cases likely to come before him on the bench. Then why can’t the same be said of the shrill banshees hysterically accosting Senators about his nomination on Capitol Hill elevators or mobs threatening reporters upholding traditional presumptions of innocence without any preponderance of evidence?
