Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Our Future Awaits

The dream of the social engineers and collectivists of all stripes is a well-ordered society where everyone is working for the good of everyone else. Only problem is that this goes against human nature. Here's a clip from that surreal TV show, The Prisoner, where a man is entrapped in a comfortable seaside "Village" where his every need will be met if he just submits.

For the believer of the Lord Jesus, our future is already waiting for us. If you don't know what I'm talking about, check out my "Are you going to heaven?" video in the upper left. Jesus said, "Fear not, I have overcome the world."

Demoralization of Structures: Social Relations

Continuing to illustrate why morality is key to a healthy and stable society, Yuri Bezmenov, that KGB agent who escaped his oppressive regime by disguising himself as a hippie, tell us:
In the area of social life, by encouraging you to put your individual RIGHTS over your OBLIGATIONS (any obligations private, financial, moral, patriotic etc.) the subverter achieves the desired effect: a society composed of IRRESPONSIBLE INDIVIDUALS, each one “doing his own thing,” and acting according to the “law of jungle.” Such subversion of society is the first step to tyranny.

I really don't need to say anymore about this, do I? Anyone can see how this has affected the family, debt burdens, apathetic attitudes, and the disintegration of many areas of our society.

Don't like your spouse? Divorce them! Thanks to no-fault divorce, you don't even have to prove anything! What's that? You want to prove that your spouse did something immoral? Well, we really don't care because it it'll just end the same way, but because divorce is a multi-billion dollar industry, we'll be glad to charge you $250/hr to hear what you think your spouse did "wrong". Just don't watch me doodle on my legal pad.

Are you over-extended on your credit cards? Are you about to lose your house? That's ok, someone will be along to bail you out soon. Don't worry about your "obligations", ok? What's that? What does obligation mean? Well, I could have guessed you'd not heard of that word/concept before or you wouldn't be in this predicament.

Have you heard what's going on in Washington? (Pretend this question was asked 4-5 years ago.) Don't look at me like I'm from space. Don't you care that the Federal Reserve is printing money out of thin air and devaluing your money. Do you realize that our entitlement programs are unsustainable and will collapse in the semi-near future?

The "ME" generation is the concept that best describes this phenomenon. The law of the jungle, might makes right, "it's ok if I can get away with it" is the prevailing mentality. The duty to make good on one's obligations is a moral mentality that our children are not taught in school. If they were taught this, what would be the rationale behind it. Children will always has "Why?" until they reach the terminus of the question line. If you can't tell the child, 'that's what God said,' and point to it in His word, then they will never have a solid grip on right and wrong. This is important because believing in absolute truth gives one great confidence to face and stand up to whatever challenges to His Righteousness may come. This is the greatest obligation of all.

Happy Memorial Day!

Don't Wait Until November to Take Action - Part 3: Pray!

I'm sure many people who happen to stumble onto this post would scoff/laugh at the thought of prayer changing the magnitude of problems our country faces. If you feel that way, then check out my link in the upper left hand corner entitled "Are You Going to Heaven". Everyone ought to search out and wrestle with this question until they have an answer. God will not hear the prayers of an unrepentant heart.

Let's get into the "way-back" machine and take a close look at how our country started out:

The Great Awakening, occurring in the 1730s- 1740s, set the stage for the American Revolution by creating a cultivating  a desire in the population for the freedom and liberty that the Bible promises. The Awakening produced preachers, unafraid of 501c regulations, espoused political thought from the pulpit. I'll spotlight a few preachers who were essential to the founding of our nation.

Rev. Johnathan Mayhew - He began preaching against the tyranny of England in 1750. The famous American historian George Bancroft said of Mayhew:
Whoever repeat the story of the Revolution will rehearse the fame of Mayhew. He spent whole nights in prayer for the dangers of this country. Light dawned on his mind on a Sabbath morning of July, 1766, and he wrote to Otis saying, "You have heard of the communion [unity] of the churches; while I was thinking of this..[the] importance of the communion of the colonies appeared to me in a striking light. Would it not be decorous in our Assembly to send circulars to all the rest (of the colonies) expressing a desire to cement a union amoung ourselves? .. It may be the only means of perpetuating our liberties." "This suggestion," said Bancroft "of a more perfect union for the common defense originating with Mayhew, was the first public expression of the future Union which has been the glory of the American republic; and it came from a clergyman, on a Sabbath morning, under the inspiration of Heaven."
Rev. Samuel Davies - He was a lawyer, an ambassador to England (before the Revolution), and was President of Prinecton. E.L. Magoon writes:
He had made himself a a thorough master of English law, civil and ecclesiastical, and always chose to meet every persecuting indictment in the highest courts with his own plea... He went to England and obtained the explicit sanction of the highest authority with respect to the extension of the Toleration Law to Virginia. It was during this mission  that...George II and many of his court were in the congregation of this preacher. When his majesty spoke several times to thsoe around him "Davies paused a moment, and then looking sternly at the king, exclaimed, "When the lion roars the beasts of the forest all tremble; and when King Jesus speaks the princes of the earth should keep silence."
Rev. John Witherspoon - A signer of the Declaration, who was a mentor to James Madison and also discipled many of our early leaders. Here is an excerpt from his sermon, "The Dominion of Providence over the Affairs of Men:"

Upon the whole, I beseech you to make a wise improvement of the present threatening aspect of public affairs and to remember that your duty to God, to your country, to your families, and to yourselves is the same. True religion is nothing else but an inward temper and outward conduct suited to your state and circumstance in Providence at any time. And as peace with God and conformity to Him, adds to the sweetness of created comforts while we  possess them, so in times of difficulty and trial, it is in the man of piety and inward principle that we may expect to find the uncorrupted patriot, the useful citizen, and the invincible soldier, -- God grant that in America true religion and civil liberty may be inseparable, and the unjust attempts to destroy the one may in the issue tend to the support and establishment of both.
 These excerpts come from the book America's Providential History, which contains all that good stuff omitted in your state-sponsored textbooks.

Our nation came to be by a series of miracles: from Dorchester Heights, Valley Forge, to the other innumerable factors that led our defeating the world's strongest military, prayer was at the center of it all.

Hear how our first Congress did business and think about our current Congress godless-tyrannical-useful-idiot-patrol conducts themselves:
When the Congress met, Mr. Cushing made a motion that it should be opened with Prayer. It was opposed by Mr. Jay of New York and Mr. Rutledge of South Carolina because we were so divided in religious sentiments, some Episcopalians, some Quakers, some Anabaptists, some Presbyterians and some Congregationalists, that we could not join in the same act of worship. Mr. Samuel Adams arose and said, "that he was no bigot; and could hear a Prayer from any gentleman of Piety and virtue who was at the same time a friend to his Country. He was a stranger in Philadelphia, but had heard that Mr. Duche` deserved that character and therefore he moved that Mr. Duche' an Episcopal clergy man, might be desired to read Prayers to Congress tomorrow morning." The motion was seconded, and passed in the affirmative. Mr. Randolph, our president waited on Mr. Duche` and received for answer, that if his health would permit, he certainly would. Accordingly next morning he appeared with his clerk and in his pontificals, and read several Prayers in the established form and then read the Psalter for the seventh day of September which was the 35th Psalm. You must remember this was the next morning after we had heard the rumor of the horrible cannonade of Boston, "it seemed as if Heaven had ordained that Psalm to be read on that morning." After this, Mr Duche` unexpectedly to everybody, struck out into extemporary Prayer, which filled the bosom of every man present. I must confess I never heard a better Prayer, one so well pronounced. Episcopalian as he is, Dr. Cooper himself never prayed with such fervor, such order, such correctness, and pathos, and in language so elegant and sublime for America, for Congress, for the Province of Massachusetts Bay, especially the town of Boston. It had excellent effect upon every body here. I must beg you to read the Psalm. Here was a scene worthy of the printers art. It was in Carpenter's Hall, in Philadelphia, a building which still survives, that the devoted individuals met to whom this service was read. Washington was kneeling there, and Henry, Randolph, Rutledge, Lee, and Jay, and by their side there stood bowed in reverence, the Puritan Patriots of New England, who at that moment had reason to believe that an armed soldiery was wasting their humble households. It was believed that Boston had been bombarded and destroyed. They prayed fervently "for America, for Congress, for the Province of Massachusetts Bay, and especially for the town of Boston", and who can realize the emotions with which they turned imploringly to Heaven for Divine interposition and aid. "It was enough", says Mr. Adams to melt a heart of stone. I saw the tears gush into the eyes of the old, grave Pacific Quakers of Philadelphia."
-John Adams Letter to Abigail Adams, September 7, 1774

Read the Psalm they read and you will find that it is perfect for our times as well, when tyranny is lurking around every corner and in every new regulation:

Psalm 35

 Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.
 Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.
 Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.
 Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.
 Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the LORD chase them.
 Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the LORD persecute them.
 For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul.
 Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.
 And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation.
 All my bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?
 False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things that I knew not.
 They rewarded me evil for good to the spoiling of my soul.
 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.
 I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth for his mother.
 But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together: yea, the abjects gathered themselves together against me, and I knew it not; they did tear me, and ceased not:
 With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.
 Lord, how long wilt thou look on? rescue my soul from their destructions, my darling from the lions.
 I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people.
 Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.
 For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.
 Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, and said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen it.
 This thou hast seen, O LORD: keep not silence: O Lord, be not far from me.
 Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause, my God and my Lord.
 Judge me, O LORD my God, according to thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.
 Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up.
 Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify themselves against me.
 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
 And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.

Check out this link from which the above pic came. Pretty cool stuff.

There is a spiritual component to all that is going on in our country today that hardly anyone is talking about. Just consider our "dear leader," Barack Obama, who I believe was spiritually abused as a child. I bet that he never went to VBS or Sunday School seeing how his mom was not religious. I think he may have tried to identify as a Muslim to fit in with his dad's world. Ultimately, he winds up in a black liberation church that blasphemes God's name and now attends no church at all. I believe, based on the way he talks, that he is his own god and really doesn't give it much thought. We ought to be fervently praying for this man that God would soften his heart and make him wise unto salvation. We ought to be praying for all these lefty tyranny types because they are really pawns in a much larger, spiritual game.  Ephesians 6:12 makes it plain: For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

When all of this becomes to much for me to fathom, I repeat this verse to keep me anchored:

Philippians 4:4-9
     Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
      Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

To sum it all up, is the Alex Harris family singing I Can Pray.
The Dove Brothers did the original version, which is awesome, too.

Why Nashville had no looting

Check out this link to Tennessee Representative's Stacy Campfield's blog. There's a priceless picture that answers all your Nashville looting deterrent questions.

Demoralization of Government Structure - Law and Order

After seeing how the leftists subvert the ideas of their target country, in these previous posts involving media, religion, education, and mass culture, we will now move on the the next level with our host Yuri Bezmenov:
There is a Russian proverb which says: “The sly head gives no rest to the arms.” Let us see what Communist subversion does to your “arms”-- the socio / political/economical STRUCTURES of America. The areas of application for demoralizing American structures are: 1. Judicial and Law-enforcement system; 2. Public organizations and institutions dealing with RELATIONS between individuals, groups and classes of the society; 3. Security and defense organs; 4. Internal political parties and groups; 5. Foreign policy formulating bodies both governmental and non-governmental (“think-tanks,” academia, “sovietology advisors” etc.)

In the area of “Law and Order,” the method of demoralization is to promote and enforce the prevalence of the “legalistic” approach over the “moral” one. Several generations of American lawyers and law-makers, graduating from the 'liberal' (that is LEFTIST, Socialist¬oriented) schools, after long-time exposure to the Socialist IDEOLOGY, have already created an atmosphere in the U.S. judicial system whereby “underprivileged” criminals are treated as a “victims” of the “cruel American society,” and the real victim (the law-abiding society) is turned into defenseless and very underprivileged citizens and taxpayers, PAYING for a comparatively comfortable life of the criminal in or outside prison. The result is as predictable as it is desirable for the subverter: MISTRUST of the American population towards their own judicial and law-enforcement system, and people demanding harsher punishments and stricter CONTROLS in order to fight crime. And what could be better than Soviet or Communist-type control? Even your 'liberal' media claims that there is no street crime in Moscow and no drug problem in the USSR.
 That's right, you can't commit crimes if you're locked in a gulag or were executed in a ditch. That kind of enforcement truly does reduce crime. For example, look at what is done by SWAT teams in the name of drug crime enforcement. 

Let's back up a minute and examine each of these structures and how leftist thought has infiltrated each one:

1. Judicial and Law-enforcement system
FDR famously called the judges on the Supreme Court, "those nine old men", because they weren't convinced that the New Deal programs were at all constitutional. Those nine old men were probably our last line of defense, protecting us from the ungodly entitlement system that is crippling our nation today. These old men had gone to law school before Soviet Revolution. Back then, it was anarchists that were the big counter cultural group threatening America. So let's look at this last court before the era of massive federal programs and entitlements. With the exception of one justice, the entire court had been appointed by Republican presidents of yore. They all attended law school in the 1870s and 1880s and were strict interpreters--you wouldn't catch them calling the Constitution a "living document." Riding the wave of populism, and "not letting a crisis go to waste", FDR packed the court with his people. I'm not going to go on and on about it, as volumes on this subject have already been written.
The FDR Supreme Court paved the way for the more liberal Warren court, which presided over the Bible being removed from schools, and by proxy, public discourse. The progressivism that Woodrow Wilson extolled, and remember FDR was in his cabinet, metastasized into the New Deal. That progressivism wasn't at all based on the original American ideal that God gives us our inalienable rights, but that human intellect can solve problems if just the right programs are implemented with the right people collaborating at the right time. You know the special people who are smart and have pieces of paper telling them that they are smart. This train of thought gave us our current education and monetary systems. Go read an Andrew Napolitano book to learn more about the judicial system being co-opted by radicals. As far as law enforcement goes, what do you think the founding father's would think of declaring a war on drugs after our experiment with alcohol prohibition didn't go so well? Check out this Reason post on the increasing militarization of law enforcement.

2. Public organizations and institutions dealing with RELATIONS between individuals, groups and classes of the society - There's so many non-profits advocating, supposedly, for the "poor", you can't swing a dead cat without hitting one. These organizations might disguise themselves as charities, but are leftist political groups underneath. CAIR is an example of an organization dealing with the relationship between jihadist Jew-hating Muslims and the rest of America. Can you believe they tried to intimidate the Tennessee Tea Party into not letting Pamella Geller speak? What a bunch of maroons!

3. Security and defense organs- There's something amiss in our nation's security, when a large swath of our officials do not want to secure our borders. Why? Because they are globalists. They pine for reduced sovereignty, eventually leading to a global government. Political correctness is rampant in the military and seems to be put at a higher priority than the mission of protecting our citizens. This is classic subversion at work.

4. Internal political parties and groups- There is no end to the non-profit goody-two-shoes out there. This would include ACORN, unions, anyone who is in a group calling themselves an "activist."

5. Foreign policy formulating bodies both governmental and non-governmental (“think-tanks,” academia, “sovietology advisors” etc.)- There are more of these groups than ever before. George Soros funds his fair share of leftists think tanks i.e. Media Matters, We also have those wonderful foundations: Carnegie, Ford, and Rockefeller, which have been working to make a more manageable society for over 100 years now.

Since we are so far removed from our roots as a righteous, God-fearing people, our laws are now more legislative, and not so moral. Good law should be rooted in morality, that idea expounded upon in "Mere Christianity", that there is a natural law in this world. In our postmodern environment, where morality is not discussed publicly because it has been demoralized away, we see that our laws being passed are very arbitrary in their moral foundation, and the population is too busy with their mass culture to notice or care. It reminds me of the prophet Jeremiah, who knew that destruction was coming to Jerusalem and no one would listen to him, they were too busy with their happy-go-lucky lives.

The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable.
---Isaiah 42:21

Demoralization of ideas - Mass Culture

You know how the old folks said that rock and roll was the devil's music? They were right. Don't roll your eyes so fast, read what Yuri, aka Tomas Shuman has to say:

Years ago, when I was scanning through a pile of Western newspapers in Novosti's Moscow headquarters, I came across a column written by a Canadian writer, Gregory Clark in the “Toronto Star.” Here it is in full. I have saved it for my files:
If I were a Communist agent in America with millions of dollars to spend annually I would not waste it in bribing pubic servants to give away state secrets. But I would lavish and encourage the sleazy tune-smiths of that region to turnout more and more garage 'culture'... Gaggled-headed and obscure musicians would be helped to prominence. I would seek out the more questionable publishers of the dirtier paperbacks and slip them a few hundred thousand so they could set up more respectable head offices. Wherever trend shows towards the beat generation I would offer it a helping hand. Anything that prompted the insubordination of teenagers, anything that contributes to the confusion and exasperation of parents would be most liberally endowed. The basic intention of my spending would be to break down the discipline, encourage relaxation of authority of every kind so as to build up, in as short time as possible, an adult generation that could easily go out of control.

America would look desperately around for any kind of discipline to rescue them and THERE-- pretty as a picture, would be Communism, the most iron-fisted discipline since Sparta. The victory would be bloodless... Except of course in concentration camps, torture, prisons, and few things like that. But nobody would know about that because of censorship of the press.
This was written in 1959! The accuracy of this description of OUR activity stunned me. We had just completed 'helping a gaggle-headed' Communist entertainer, Yves Montand to 'prominence' in Moscow and were halfway through with publicly elevating 'obscure' Indian filmmaker Raj Kapoor to 'fame.’ The editorial offices of Novosti were teaming with 'sleazy' foreign singers, poets, writers, artists, musicians and 'intellectuals' coming to my country for support in their 'progressive struggle' against their own 'decadent capitalist' societies...
There is not much I can add to that statement of a wise Canadian columnist today. Yes, KGB encourages DEMORALIZATION of America through the 'mass culture' by relying upon the help of the “useful idiots” of the entertainment business. No, the Beatles, Punks and Michael Jackson are not on the KGB payroll. They are on YOUR payroll. All the KGB had to do is to slowly and gradually CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDES and kill your RESISTANCE to the demoralizing addiction your kids call 'music,’ make it acceptable, NORMAL; make it a part of 'American culture' where it does not belong and never did.

I've heard conservative pundits say this administration is out of control. Is this by design?  I've heard all my life that the country went of the rails in the sixties when the attitudes of the Baby Boomers broke from the traditional norms. Maybe Joe McCarthy had a point. You remember how much the textbooks discredit him, right? (For those not following this series, discredit was a recent vocabulary word in the demoralizing media post.)

I discussed the reasons for things following apart in the Boomer era in the previous posts on education and religion. Just think about how our society, the media, education system, etc. discourages traditional authority: God, elders, and parents. It works day and night to replace them with the authority of government, peer groups, and "anything goes" as long as it doesn't go against government and mass artificial morality (whatever is political correct at the time.)

There's another dimension to the pop culture phenomenon that is destabilizing to our society and that is the fad aspect. Everybody's talking (morons who don't know what voting district they're in) about American Idol or some such nonsense and don't realize that they're being led to the slaughter. In this way, pop culture has a hypnotizing effect on a population, like a snake before it eats the prey.

Here's my relevant pop culture analogy: The Soviet/commie/collectivist subversion of our country is like the Dharma Initiative. It set up a hatch connected to a button that had to be pushed every so often. The commies set the demoralization process. Like Dharma, the Soviet union is no more, or so they say, but the button is still being pushed by American citizens. However, instead of the button pushing saving lives, it destroys them one divorce, one lost freedom, and one lost soul at a time.

These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. Now, little children, abide in Him, so that when He appears, we may have confidence and not shrink away from Him in shame at His coming. If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone also who practices righteousness is born of Him. --- I John 2:26-28

Here's the Man in Black delivering a sure and stern warning:

Demoralization of ideas - Media

The public arena of ideas represented by our media: television, radio, and print have long been co-opted by leftists. The four main methods that the media uses to control the narrative, and thusly their lordship of public opinion are as follows: monopolize, manipulate, discredit, and promote non-issues. Here Yuri tells of his experience with American media back in the 60's and 70's:
The American media is a willing recipient of Soviet subversion. I know this, because I worked with American journalists and correspondents in Moscow while on the Soviet side, and after my defection to the West. People habitually refer to the American media as 'free,’ ignoring the obvious and commonly known fact that most of the most powerful media in the USA, is already MONOPOLIZED both financially and ideologically by what are referred to as 'liberals.’ American media 'chains' BELONG to fewer and fewer owners, who, do not seem to mind that the media is being almost totally 'liberalized.’ Liberalism, in its old classical sense, means above all, respect to individual opinion and tolerance to opposing views. However, in my own experience, communist defectors who have requested and sometimes literally begged, to have stories of their life in the Soviet Union told to the American people via the major American media have been completely ignored.
We all know now that virtually all American media is controlled by a handful of companies. We also know that they spend a great deal of time trying to reenact the high school preppy club, looking down on us dorky Constitution-respecting Americans. In their minds, they have ascended beyond reason. (Francis Schaeffer "line of despair" reference.) They are the Vorlon; we are still pathetic mortals, bitterly clinging to our morality and firearms.
One of the most devastating methods of Soviet subversion in American media is the DISCREDITING of authors like myself and the information and opinion of those who come up with clear evidence of Communist crimes against mankind. This method is well described in my forthcoming book entirely dedicated to the activity of the 'Novosti' Press Agency.
I remember when you were roundly mocked for mentioning that you had ever listened to Rush Limbaugh. I thought it interesting that people who could not identify their congressman knew that Rush Limbaugh was stupid and felt a strong compulsion to tell you all about it. Why, you'd ask? Because that is what they had been told to believe. (Universal sufferage might not be the best idea, guys, it's not in the Constitution.) Well, no one's laughing now, chumps. I'm sure the discrediting routine is one or more of Alinsky's Rules.

You see a lot of non-issues in the media today. The world is literally falling apart and what is the media harping about? Global warming, that scientifically disproved idea that man has the ability to ruin the physical earth. If that's not a non-issue I don't know what is.  Yuri, wherever he is, must be laughing at the sheer ridiculous genius of it all. Behold, Mr. Bez tells us all about non-issues:
Introduction of NON-ISSUES is another powerful method of demoralizing at the level of IDEAS. It will take another full size book to describe in detail this method. Suffice it will be here to give a brief definition of NON-ISSUES. An issue, the solution of which creates more and bigger problems for majority of a nation, even though it may benefit a few, is a non-issue (civil rights of homosexuals is not an issue; defending sexual morality is the larger, real issue). The main purpose of non-issues and the devastating result of their introduction is the SIDE-TRACKING of public opinion, energy (both mental and physical), money and TIME from the constructive solutions. Soviet propaganda elevated the art of infiltrating and emphasizing non-issues in American public life to the level of actual state policy.
 A few other non-issues that come to my mind are salt in food, recycling, most environmental issues, pre-K education, fat kids, etc. I'm sure some of ya'll can think up some good ones.

I would talk in detail about manipulation, but I think anyone who's read this far down on a blog such as this, doesn't need any explanation. If you sympathize with Tea Party movement and have noticed the lopsided press treatment of it, you know what I'm talking about.

Journalism has long since deviated from the four W's and how. For the last 40+ years, (and probably longer) it has sought to control the narrative of public discussion. With the advent of new media, their monopoly is slipping and hopefully those people who were clueless about their congressman are getting a clue.

Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.  ---Psalm 119:128

I Did Not Vote for this Man

That's right. I voted for democrat, Bob Tuke over Lamar, because I'd rather have my liberal straight up and not wearing an R by his name.
But the truth is the federal government probably doesn't have the capacity to do that. I think we ought to allow the administration, working with the government and others, to do its best to clean it up and make our verdict about the blame later. SCHIEFFER: But would you favor taking over BP if that became necessary? ALEXANDER: Sure. That's up to the president to decide. Under the law, we know who pays. That's BP. They're the responsible party. And we know who's managing the federal effort. That's the Coast Guard. But under the law, the federal government can take it over if they choose."

Tennesseans have got to stop elected pretty boy globalists disguised as conservatives. The ruse is wearing thin.

Demoralization of ideas - Education

Education is an issue close to my heart because I know how many kids out there are suffering in the prison of public schools. I made my decision to homeschool when I was sitting in Economics class in high school watching VH1 pop-up videos. My daughter went to public school a couple of years before I pulled her out. If you want something done right, do it yourself. It's the American way. Let's see what Mr. Bezmenov has to say about demoralizing the education of a nation:
The Marxist-Leninist concept of education emphasizes 'environment' and 'mass' character of education over individual abilities and quality. When American media enthusiastically reports (repeating Soviet propaganda cliches) about 'achievements of Soviet science,' they usually obscure the IDEOLOGICAL aspects and purposes of the Communist system of education. 'Massiveness' and 'universality' of education attracts Western sociologists and governmental bureaucracies alike.
No Child Left Behind was a 'massive' and 'universal' piece of legislation passed by globalists George W. Bush and Teddy Kennedy, to name a couple. It violated our constitution's 9th and 10th amendments in favor of bringing America into the "global economy". If this kind of talk creeps you out, then opt-out this summer. Don't let the government brainwash your babies!

The Western public seldom receives the explanation of THE PRICE or the state-controlled Socialist-type education: political conformity to dictatorship, ideological brainwashing, lack of individual initiative in 'educated masses,’ lagging behind in development of science and technology. It is a commonly known fact that most of the Soviet 'technological marvels' are stolen, bought or 'borrowed' from the West. Most of the scientific and technological research in the USSR is 'productive' only and always in the most destructive area: the military. My motherland is still, after more than half century of 'victorious Socialism,’ a country without even common household refrigerators, and yet boasts of their 'space exploration' and tremendous military might, which have done absolutely nothing to improve the day to day life of Soviet citizens.
So the Price for this mass education is:
political conformity to dictatorship -Just see the lockstep to which the liberals, media, and education industry march.
ideological brainwashing - Jason Mattera has done work on this subject with his book, Obama Zombies.
lack of individual initiative in educated masses-  No one can deny there has been a huge decrease in the American work ethic over the last 30 years. This is because there is absolutely no incentive to work hard in the American public school. What would be the point? You're going to get promoted anyway, not to mention, that the classes are so dumbed-down, anyone with a pulse can pass. Well why don't their parents give them chores and make them work? When's that going to happen? On weekends or after school? So many kids are left or to themselves during those times that it's not happening.
lagging behind in development of science and technology- Not sure what the current state of our country's recent innovation, but I'll wager that American public school kids have little to do with it.

The American romance with state-run education as encouraged by KGB subverters has already produced generations of graduates who cannot spell, cannot find Nicaragua on a world map, cannot THINK creatively and independently. I wonder if Albert Einstein would have arrived at his Theory of Relativity if he had been educated in one of today’s American public schools. Most likely he would have 'discovered' marijuana and variant methods of sexual intercourse instead. Wouldn't you agree that KGB sponsored demoralization is not going to produce the dynamic, talented and fruitful young Americans of the future') Contemporary American permissiveness and moral relativity in education have greatly facilitated Soviet ideological subversion tactics.
The moral relativity is the greatest weapon of the collectivists. Indeed it was the first lie told in the garden: Hath God said? that unleashed sin on the world. On a much smaller scale, moral relativism introduced in public school system by social engineers such as B.F. Skinner, has opened a pandora's box of destabilizing  problems in our society. Our country used to pride itself in the overall integrity of its citizens. The press would extol political candidates service to their church, obituaries would tell how the deceased lived an upright life, the average citizen believed in a concrete right and wrong. Now our kids are unsure of what is right and wrong, in fact, most probably don't believe in this concept. Everything in their lives, from the media to their school curriculum, to their peer group relationships have no reference point for what is right or wrong.  This makes it easy to manipulate them into thinking anything the change agent desires.

The main methods of Soviet DEMORALIZATION of American education are:
I respond in bold. Remember this pamphlet is nearly 30 years old.
1. Student Exchanges whereby American students and professors go to Moscow and are exposed to ideological brainwashing sometimes lacking the proper education that would allow them to assess the Soviet information they receive objectively.
Wasn't there a Simpsons episode about this?
2. Flooding of campus bookstores with Marxist and Socialist literature published both in the USSR and by domestic ‘fellow travelers’;
I think the literature is homegrown now. We are halfway through our 3rd generation of demoralization.
3. International seminars and conferences with Soviet participation, where Soviet propaganda seldom is balanced by opposing viewpoints;
Replace the word Soviet with the word Globalist. A globalist can be a republican or democrat, you can tell by how they vote. We call globalist republicans RINOS.
4. Infiltration of schools and universities by radicals, leftists, and simply 'disturbers,’ often functioning unknowingly under the direct guidance of KGB Agents of Influence.
This has already happened; now they've grown up and are running the country.
5. Establishing numerous 'student' newspapers and magazines, staffed with Communists and sympathizers;
Leftists are always trying to rope impressionable kids into their activism. i.e. Save the Whales, Recycling, tolerance cloaked in moral relativism.
6. Organizing 'study groups' and 'circles' for dissemination of Soviet propaganda and Communist ideology.
This is how the Hegelian dialectic works, and is going on in every classroom in some form or another. Most of the time, it happens without the instructor's knowledge. The curriculum drives the narrative, ergo the ruckus over the Texas textbooks.

The eventual result is very predictable: ignorance combined with anti-Americanism. That's good enough for the KGB at this stage of subversion.
Mission accomplished KGB! We have plenty of both ignorance and anti-Americanism.

Ok, chaps, what do we do now? It takes 10-15 years to start reversing the process. These years must be spent teaching our kids right from wrong. Education, the original definition, includes the character training and the importance of wisdom. God's Word tells us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. I begin each day, (or try to, anyway) with reading from the Bible and going over the meaning with all my kids. From the Bible, they learn from the source of ultimate wisdom, ancient history, philosophy, and the basis of Western Civilization. Also, we need to teach our kids the true story of the Revolution; read them the unabridged letters of the founders. Have them memorize portions of the Constitution and Declaration. In order to keep from being taken over by these leftists, we need to start now opting out of their evil, yes evil, education system.

It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.  -Luke 17:2

When you're not producing enough children to replace yourself, much less enough to support you through 6 weeks of vacation, plus bonus time off, early retirement, you shouldn't be shocked when it all comes crashing down.
When the Muslims are in charge, I don't expect they will be doling out benefits so liberally as they will not be trying to win elections. They don't have election is an Islamic caliphate, don't cha know.

Americans without religious affiliation? No Kidding

Gallup is out with numbers that say that Americans increasingly have no religious affiliation: (I can't get their stupid graph to come up so go look at it and pretend I put it here:)

Pay attention to the year 1963, the year that nonsectarian Bible reading was banned from school. From what I see the unaffiliated rate was pretty constant until that year.

It's pretty ridiculous for Christians to be surprised at these numbers. Like it says in Romans 10:14:

How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?

If every Christian parent had pulled their child out of school in the early sixties, our country would not be in the shape it's in. The globalist/collectivist tool is always ignorance. Parents did not even consider homeschooling or alternative education methods because they were conditioned to believe education has to be practiced by "experts". The reliance on "experts" and the fragmentation of our society could be fodder for many more posts.

Demoralization of Ideas - Commercializing Religion merges with Show-Time Religion

In this previous post, I ranted (can't call it a well-structured essay) about how liberal philosophy infiltrated existing denominations and the subject of faith itself has been politicized in public discourse. Just go to Wallbuilders or read the unabridged writings of the founders to know that God and His Word is the bedrock of our Constitution. John Adams famously put it:

So how does one unbridle the restraints of morality and religion on a whole society, and subsequently bust that ol' Constitution wide open?  Ex-KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov, who specialized in subversion and propaganda explains: 

All subverter has to do to remove the spiritual backbone of America is to help you to POLITICIZE, COMMERCIALIZE and 'ENTERTAINMENT-ALIZE' the dominant religions. There are many other contributing factors the subverter can also take advantage of, such as the development and spreading of various religious cults, including Satanic and Death cults; preaching moral relativity and removing religion (and prayer, ANY prayer) from schools; creating 'personality cults' in religion whereby the preacher becomes the center and object or divine worship, not God (often your religious charlatans claims to be 'incarnations' of God, or even God Himself) etc.

I have selected the above three main methods because I am most familiar with them. These methods were used by myself and my KGB-Novosti colleagues and these methods have proven to be sufficiently efficient. We did not have to bother with such silliness for example as recruiting Billy Graham and forcing him to tell outrageous lies about “the existence of religious freedom in the Soviet Union” in state-run churches in Moscow.
Let's look at the contributing factors:
Cults-  are they on the increase? I haven't really researched this, but I'd bank on it. Remember, 1963 was the year that the Bible got the boot from schools. By 1973, these kids were a zillion times more likely to be in a cult than someone who grew up  in the 1930s.
Moral Relativity- this is "preached" to kids in the school system and in the media (all their cute little shows). It's not very overt in the early years, but they lay it on thick the later grades. What is right and what is wrong and why is not at all stressed in public schools. Think about the moral dichotomy that is set up for kids when they have to sit out of recess for talking in the hallway, but the kid next to him gets off scot free even though he bullies kids and uses crude language. How is his sense of right and wrong being formed? There are books and books on moral relativity, so I won't go on.
Removing prayer from schools - done
Personality cults - Three letters - TBN

Let's talk about entertainment and the church. I could devote an entire blog to the  churches that spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on lighting and sound systems so as to stimulate a rock concert experience at their church. I could start another blog just on Rick Warren and his custom church services that vary depending on your musical preference. Fortunately, someone has already done the work for me. Check out the radio archives at Critical Issues Commentary to hear a 15 part series that exposes why Rick Warren's ministry and his best-selling book, The Purpose Driven Life, are unbiblical case studies of "ear tickling"

Again, Yuri explains why this is beneficial to proponents of a collectivist, tyranical governement, and he said all this almost 30 years ago:
Let's start with the most 'innocent' method of destroying religion, namely, making it ENTERTAINING. To attract people AND MONEY to 'established' religious organizations some churches have literally become theaters conducting variety shows featuring celebrities from the entertainment 'industry' who perform for 'fees.’ The KGB Agents of Influence may or may not have to physically manipulate these entertainment arrangements. The indiscriminate choice of the 'celebrities' for these church 'performances' is usually quite pleasing to the KGB. A group of rock or pop-musicians with a message of 'social-justice' sugar-coated in popular 'spiritual' tunes can be actually more helpful to the KGB than someone standing in the pulpit preaching Marxist-Leninist doctrine. The sugar-sweet messages of social equality from the crooning mouths of the entertainers is quite enough to accomplish the aims of the KGB without any overt activity on their part.
Is this happening today? Let's dissect this paragraph:
Churches have become theaters -Need I say more?
Celebreties that charge fees - There is a difference, I think, between fees and a "love offering". But when some of these "Christian" celebrities are living it up in mansions here on earth, I think that an abuse of trust has occurred.
Social Justice message sugar-coat in today's Bubblegum music - I'm not really into CCM, so I can't comment on what percentage of that type of music would count as social gospel propaganda. Propoganda can take any form in music, so I always make it a point to pay close attention to the words and ask myself, how biblical are these lyrics? What Scripture would back them up?

This point of social justice reminded me of Rick Warren's ambitious P.E.A.C.E. project wherein he colludes with nonbelievers (without making a witnessing outreach) to achieve worldly goals. i.e. well-digging, education, medicine.

Yes, let's make church-goers think that they are changing the world with the social gospel. Just ignore that other Gospel where the Son of the Holy God of Israel willingly got beaten to a bloody pulp and took on the sin of the world on Himself, died, rose on the 3rd day, and vowed to return when the time of the Gentiles was fulfilled to take out the trash. Eww, that's offensive! Let's go dig a well in Nigeria without mentioning the Bible in threatening way so that the Muslims will like us better! Yay! Rob Bell and his glasses are soo kewl! The emergent church is what has come along to replace liberal theology in the church. It is prevalent in youth and college groups and does NOT lead to the straight and narrow. I've done a lot of research on this, due to a brush with it in my own church. It does tie into many of the points here, so I'm just mentioning it.

Moving along to the subject of marketing and Je$u$ junk, we discuss Commercialization. Observe the following little play:
Congregation: What do we do? Young people aren't coming to church anymore! We have to DO something!
Church Growth Pitch Man: You guys can't draw a crowd because you're not relevant. The Baptist Hymnal? Seriously. Look, we've got proven plan to get a church going again. Get your deacons together and come up with a vision. [Make this look like it was ya'll's idea.] You guys will need some tools to get started. May I suggest Church- in -a- Box? You will also need a super-cool youth guy or gal and to ramp up your music. Don't forget programs, programs, program! You'll also want to follow these transitioning guides. Do a survey to see what your congregation expects. These methods have been proven in the marketplace when improving brand. You might want to think about finding your niche. No matter what: emphasize giving!

See that? He's promoting the world's way over God's way, leading us to further decline. He said He would build His church, not us.

Again, years before the church growth movement was ever heard of, Yuri nails it:

Faithful people do not have to be ASKED for money, [He's talking about televangelists here.] they tithe to their churches voluntarily and eagerly. Unhealthy competition for donations between various 'electronic churches' does two things beneficial to the subverter (KGB): 1) it makes religion dependent on the most successful 'salesmen' of God (and these salesmen may not necessarily be, they DONT HAVE to be, of the highest moral standards) thus, truly moral, God-centered people are turned off by organized religion and 2) it EMPTIES regular churches, where you have to practice your religion by personal physical presence and participation and involvement. All the subverter has to do now is to keep on further discrediting the main body of the church, by harping at religion in general as “just another means of the capitalist exploitation of masses, and a profit-oriented opiate of the people.” And the Soviet propaganda, and its fronts such as 'Novosti' Press Agency does exactly that, and quite successfully, through thousands of 'liberal' and 'leftist' media establishments in the USA.
 Note: All Yuri Bezmenov quotations come from his pamphlet, Love Letter to America.(h/t Useless Dissident)

 Every crooked preacher on TV has probably closed the hearts of hundreds if not thousands of people. Does the US media ever highlight what good churches are doing in their communities. Maybe if you live down South, it will happen occasionally. I would say the vast majority of media stories on Christianity are designed to cast us in a bad light, never saying the hypocrite word, but making you think it the whole time. So many have left the church over the last 30 years. The church tries to fight it by becoming more worldly, like some pathetic person who just wants someone, anyone to like them. As Ferris Bueller once said, "Its hard to respect someone who kisses your butt." If you have the stomach, check out the Museum of Idolatry for a front-row view of what the once mighty Christian church has come to. Don't let it get you down, gentle reader, He has already overcome the world for us!

Jesus told us to get ready in Matthew 24:
Jesus answered: "Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am the Christ, and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.
 "Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

Don't Wait Until November to Take Action - Part 2: Cancel Your Subscriptions

The Mainstream Media is selling a horrible product. Thanks to the new media, we are no longer a captive audience. So if you still are subscribing to a newspaper, stop it this instant! Don't pay people to cut and paste what the AP wires them and call it news. You probably have a ton of corruption going on in your local area and no press coverage. Why? Because they're all on the take.

I absolutely love it when my local paper tries to make a sales pitch on me. The look on their faces when I tell them with how much force their paper sucks, how it is unfit for emergency TP, how I don't give a crap about the latest wine trends - well, the look is priceless. My biggest beef is the documented misuse of public funds by our local county government and the local paper only reports on it when it is no longer news, but a gigantic elephant in the proverbial room.

Imagine a world where the New York Times and Washington Post columnists join the ranks of the unemployed. Make it happen one liberal newspaper subscription at a time.

Demoraliztion of Ideas - Religion and Politicalization

Everyone knows that the church in America is not what it used to be. Compare the fiery sermons of Jonathan Edwards or George Whitefield to the mealy-mouthed fare that is whimpered out of the pulpits in many churches today, and it is no mystery why attendance is down and the church has lost influence. In the face of our toxic culture today, Christians aren't bold in proclaiming the Gospel, but are apologetic and tepid when discussing The Way.

How did we arrive at this point? In the Revolution, ministers of the Gospel were crucial to outlining the moral case for rebellion against the Crown. Yes, folks they talked about politics from the pulpit, a LOT. Education was intertwined with religious education in the Christian faith, for it was understood that if the American citizenry did not revere the Bible and respect God's Law, then the Constitution would be rendered worthless. Consider the 1828 definition of education in Webster's American Dictionary:

EDUCA'TION, n. [L. educatio.] The bringing up, as of a child, instruction; formation of manners. Education comprehends all that series of instruction and discipline which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the temper, and form the manners and habits of youth, and fit them for usefulness in their future stations. To give children a good education in manners, arts and science, is important; to give them a religious education is indispensable; and an immense responsibility rests on parents and guardians who neglect these duties. 

Children in Christian homes do not automatically become Christians by sheer genetics. The Bible is clear that if one generation fails to pass along God's precepts, the next generation will be carried off into worldliness and the trappings thereof. For proof, just look at how the Israelites' favor with God would change depending on each generation's faith.

Refer to the subversion process chart and see that the goals of Soviet or Collectivists is to politicize, commercialize, and make it a source of entertainment. I think they have more than succeeded in this department.  Let's break it down further. Remember that crappy Billy Joel song, We Didn't Start the Fire? This is true when you trace back unbelief in churches in the Western World. The first preacher to sound the clarion call to arms was that Prince of Preachers, Charles H Spurgeon. He called it the downgrade, suggesting that since the time of the Puritans, more pastors focused on the "moral teachings" of Jesus and not on the Gospel. Read more here. I believe the beginnings of this speculative and starry-eyed faith was in the Unitarian movement that was centered in New England. You will notice that that part of the country was the first to totally abandon the fundamentals of the Christian faith and now has a very low church attendance.

At about the time of Spurgeon, you had Darwin and Charles Lydell come along and propose theories that were not meshing with a literal translation. Well, nobody, especially elite-types want to be against science, so the spin machine was switched on and the politics of the Bible vs. Science is still churning away. The false sexual research of Dr. Kinsey also opened the door up to politicize the Bible and deviant sexuality. The most important factor in politicizing religion would come in 1963.

For 150 years, the United States government and court system would uphold that the meaning of the Freedom of Religion would comprise of no national denomination, yet no unfettered religious expression. Prayer was allowed anywhere and everywhere and if you didn't like it, tough, go start an atheist colony, heathen. Our country began the plunge downward with the following:
 "School Prayer & Bible Reading" (Abington Township School District v. Schempp, 1963)

The Pennsylvania school system complied with a state law requiring that ten verses of scripture be read every day. The readings were without comment and any student could request to be excused. This case came to the Supreme Court at the same time as the Murray v. Curlett case, and the court ruled on them together. In a nutshell, the court's ruling stated that School Prayer and Bible reading were violations of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. In ironic fashion, the court established a secular religion for our school system, thus violating the "establishment clause" of the First Amendment.
The book, America's Godly Heritage by David Barton, has a slew of graphs that record rates over time of various social statistics.  Teen pregnancy,  violent crime, STDs, cohabitation rates, and divorce rates all skyrocketed after 1963. The only graph in this section of the book that shows a decline is the SAT scores. Granted, other factors were hitting our country at the same time, but the root of these other evils was unbelief. The Bible is clear that if we do not constantly remind our children of God and His Law everyday, they will be led astray. Deuteronomy 6:7-9 makes it plain:
 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
When compulsory school laws went into effect around the country, one of the main selling points is that school would bring Christianity to the children of those who were not believers. Once Christianity, and the reminder that there is a God in Heaven who watches and will hold us accountable, is removed, the innate sinful nature takes over and leads to chaos. The devout parents of an earlier age submitted to compulsory education without a worry because they knew that the Bible was faithfully being read and those in authority held it in esteem. If these parents of 150 years ago were raising children today, they would not for one second allow their kids to participate in a school where Christ wasn't Lord. Would you?

We have traced how Christianity itself became politicized in the media, but what of politics in the church itself?
The Episcopal Church USA has ordained homosexuals, divested funds from Israel, supports abortion on demand, replaced social justice for the true Gospel of Christ, and cheer leads for all things liberal and Marxist. (Apologies to the faithful holdouts still working inside the denomination, but you know I'm right.) Following the Episcopalians off the cliff are your various mainline denominations: Lutherans, United Methodists, and Presbyterian USA just to name the bigger ones. What happened here you might wonder, well, just look up the following organizations: World Council of Churches, National Council of Churches, and any organization promoting ecumenicism. Here is Yuri the WCC and subversion of religion by the KGB:

Politicizing religion is the most efficient method of demoralizing a target nation. Once a nation starts giving to Caesar what belongs to God, and getting God involved in such things as 'social justice' and partisan political squabbles, it predictably loses what religion calls mercy and the grace of God. To put it in 'atheistic' terms, a target country allows the subverter to use the area of moral values for dissemination and enforcement of amoral ideas and policies. The most powerful instrument of this process is an organization called World Council of Churches, infiltrated by the KGB to such extent, that it is hard to distinguish, these days, a priest from a spy. Being a public relations officer for Novosti, I accompanied many foreign members of the WCC during their visits to the USSR. Some of them struck me as individuals pathologically unable to say or hear truth. They were simply allergic to any facts or opinions which would 'undermine' their 'spiritual' affiliation with the Soviet manipulators. Archbishop and president (!) Macarios of Cyprus was one such 'religious 'visitor. Skillfully combining both God's and Caesar’s things, Macarios was extremely effective in bringing the desperately needed air of legitimacy and 'holiness' to the junta of the Soviet mass murderers and oppressors of religion. His photogenic presence at various 'international forums' in Moscow great1y promoted ACCEPTABILITY of the Soviet influence in the 'non-aligned' and 'developing' countries.

When, after my defection to the West, I find Trotskyite publications in a United Church of Canada, or see Nicaraguan Catholic Church 'fathers' with Soviet-made Kalashnikov machine guns hung over their church robes, or read about 'humanitarian' aid from the American Council of Churches given to African mass-murderers and terrorists, who were trained in my old country by the KGB, I do not 'suspect'-- I KNOW these things to be what they are-- direct results of the Communist SUBVERSION of religion. I do not need any 'evidence' of 'links' between the KGB and the church. The complete confusion of God-related and politically subverted related goals are obvious.
The World Council of Churches promotes ecumenicism. Why is ecumenicism bad? Think about the Tower of Babel and apply the moral of that story to churches. These churches chose political action over the Bread of Life. As a result, the power of the Gospel to change lives was diminished and immorality took the place of what had once been the most principled nation of people the world had ever known. Now over half of our population are legally separated from the book that Western Civilization was built upon. We're coming up on two generations of students who where forced to go to a school that will not teach them the truth of our country, not daring to mention His name for fear of lawsuits. A majority of them now doubt the reality of right and wrong. They mock the very thing that could save them and their country, as it has been politicized by the legal system, the media, and the church itself.

De - Moral - i - za -tion

Main Entry: de·mor·al·ize 
Pronunciation: \di-ˈmr-ə-ˌlīz, ˌdē-, -ˈmär-\
Function: transitive verb
Date: circa 1793
1 : to corrupt the morals of
2 a : to weaken the morale of : discourage, dispirit
b : to upset or destroy the normal functioning of  
c : to throw into disorder

Ponder this word and its definition after listening to Yuri Bezmenov explain this term in regard to overthrowing a functioning government without firing a shot.

Consider definition #1 after checking out this most wonderful and comprehensive post by Mrs. Luci MacLeod at Ladies Against Feminism regarding what a "good public school" is really like. See my previous post about removing as many children from the government school system as possible this summer, and ask yourself how our society has been thrown into disorder by an ignorant and selfish citizenry. (Definitions 2 b&c)
Finally, per definition 2a:
Would you say that the products of the public education system are upbeat little bluebirds of hope?
Or are they hedonistic individuals without direction and purpose?

The Lord Jesus summed up the effects of demoralization:

"Because iniquity shall be multiplied,
the love of the many shall wax cold" Matt. 24:12 

In a future post, I hope to expound how the Soviets targeted the morals of young Americans in hopes of taking our country over from within.
