On MLK (Happy Robert E. Lee Day!)

lee

 

Some unfortunate people (Neo-Conservatives, Republicans, etc) have mistakenly decided to use this day to venerate the Secular Saint Martin Luther King, Jr., rather than the honourable (though admittedly not perfect) Robert E. Lee. They choose to deify a man and “baptise” him into their own movement while disparaging the historical hero of the South. But, like the Theistic evolution narrative, if you accept the basic tenant (in this case “MLK was a good man”), then you toss the ball to their court. Evidence abounds that he was a Communist sympathiser, if not a Communist himself. For the evidence presented, we show that MLK was no conservative. Here is a quote from the man on the defeat of Barry Goldwater:

The American people revealed great maturity by overwhelmingly rejecting a presidential candidate who had become identified with extremism, racism, and retrogression. The voters of our nation rendered a telling blow to the radical right. They defeated those elements in our society which seek to pit white against Negro and lead the nation down a dangerous Fascist path. (emphasis added)

On Marxism:

We must recognize that the problems of neither racial nor economic justice can be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power.

Sadly, even our Churches (even Catholic Churches) seem intent on contributing to the myth of the great, late, MLK. If not for political reasons alone, but especially for religious reasons the man should be shunned. A key deficiency of most progressivists, King also denied key tenants of the Christian Faith. Here are his words on the development of  Christian doctrine, born not of the Supernatural by Divine Revelation, but by natural means out of the consciousness of the early Christians:

Doctrines and creeds do not spring forth uncaused like Athene sprang from the head of Zeus, but they grow out of the historical settings and the psychological moods of the individuals that set them forth. All ideas, however profound or however naive, are produced by conditions and experiences that grow from the producers’ environment.

Compare these to the words of Saint Pope Pius X, hammer of modernists and possibly the greatest Pontiff of the 20th Century, in his “Oath Against Modernism” (1910):

Fourthly, I sincerely hold that the doctrine of faith was handed down to us from the apostles through the orthodox Fathers in exactly the same meaning and always in the same purport. Therefore, I entirely reject the heretical’ misrepresentation that dogmas evolve and change from one meaning to another different from the one which the Church held previously. I also condemn every error according to which, in place of the divine deposit which has been given to the spouse of Christ to be carefully guarded by her, there is put a philosophical figment or product of a human conscience that has gradually been developed by human effort and will continue to develop indefinitely. (emphasis added)

King continues with his heresy:

In this paper we shall discuss the experiences of early Christians which lead to three rather orthodox doctrines–the divine sonship of Jesus, the virgin birth, and the bodily resurrection…But if we delve into the deeper meaning of these doctrines, and somehow strip them of their literal interpretation, we will find that they are based on a profound foundation. Although we may be able to argue with all degrees of logic that these doctrines are historically and philolophically untenable, yet we can never undermind the foundation on which they are based.

On the Virginity of Our Blessed Mother:

The second doctrine in our discussion posits the virgin birth. This doctrine gives the modern scientific mind much more trouble than the first, for it seems downright improbable and even impossible for anyone to be born without a human father. First we must admit that the evidence for the tenability of this doctrine is to shallow to convince any objective thinker.

On the bodily Resurrection of Our Lord and Saviour, the Christ:

From a literary, historical, and philosophical point of view this doctrine raises many questions. In fact the external evidence for the authenticity of this doctrine is found wanting. But here again the external evidence is not the most important thing, for it in itself fails to tell us precisely the thing we most want to know: What experiences of early Christians lead to the formulation of the doctrine?

In all three points, MLK espouses the position that the early Christians’ “inner experiences” and “environment” led to the deification of Christ, who was not born of a Virgin, was likely not fully God, and was not resurrected from the dead. He leaves a hollow shell that is not Christian. Did the fool really think he could cast aspersions on matters that the great minds before him had already thought upon, ideas that were born out of events and reality rather than inner consciousness?

Bl. Pius IX, the “Southerner’s Pope,” wrote the great “Syllabus of Errors,” that the following notions are condemned as anti-Christian:

5. Divine revelation is imperfect, and therefore subject to a continual and indefinite progress, corresponding with the advancement of human reason.

7. The prophecies and miracles set forth and recorded in the Sacred Scriptures are the fiction of poets, and the mysteries of the Christian faith the result of philosophical investigations. In the books of the Old and the New Testament there are contained mythical inventions, and Jesus Christ is Himself a myth.

9. All the dogmas of the Christian religion are indiscriminately the object of natural science or philosophy, and human reason, enlightened solely in an historical way, is able, by its own natural strength and principles, to attain to the true science of even the most abstruse dogmas; provided only that such dogmas be proposed to reason itself as its object.

So should we celebrate MLK Day? No way.

CIA Arming Syrian Jihadists, Killing Christians

ObamaChangeJihad

In a less-than-surprising revelation, it has been discovered that the Federal Government has been actively arming the Syrian Rebels  in opposition to the moderate Assad regime. Says the Associated Press:

The CIA has been delivering light machine guns and other small arms to Syrian rebels for several weeks, following President Barack Obama’s decision to arm the rebels.The agency has also arranged for the Syrian opposition to receive anti-tank weaponry like rocket-propelled grenades through a third party, presumably one of the Gulf countries that has been arming the rebels, a senior U.S. intelligence official and two former intelligence officials said Thursday.

That’s right- while all the debate has been raging on whether Obama should go into Syria, the Fed has already been arming the “Syrian Opposition.” This means the United States has been complicit in murdering Christians and spreading Islam. A perfect example of this is shown on the outskirts of Damascus. The historically Christian town of Maaloula was attacked by the Rebels, Assad’s forces being driven out. One report stated that the government forces lost a tank in the battle (that’s where the Fed’s anti-tank weaponry comes into play). As the Jihadists entered the village, they told the Christians to “convert to Islam or die.” According to an eyewitness,

They (the Rebels) arrived in our town at dawn on Wednesday and shouted ‘We are from the Al-Nusra Front and have come to make lives miserable for the Crusaders”

Maaloula2

A 62-year old Syrian said he saw despicable acts perpetrated by the Rebels:

I saw people wearing Al-Nusra headbands who started shooting at crosses… (Then they) put a pistol to the head of my neighbour and forced him to convert to Islam by obliging him to repeat ‘there is no God but God.’

The Muslim population of Maaloula quickly abandoned their friends, as well:

Women came out on their balconies shouting with joy (at the arrival of the Rebels), and children… did the same. I discovered that our friendship was superficial

One women was told by the Islamists that her Christian fiance

was carrying weapons, and we have slit his throat…Jesus didn’t come to save him.

Several Priests have also been beheaded, with Churches looted and Holy Places profaned.

Syrian-antiChristian

Maaloula has been characterised by Christians in the Capital of Damascus as a “Wound of Christ.”

Veteran political leaders and the public have halted Federal strikes against Assad for now, though a Federal proxy war continues to be waged.

where is Obama?

He is out lobbying Congress for authority to attack the Syrian army that defended Maaloula as John McCain beats the drums for a Senate resolution to have the U.S. military “change the momentum” of the war to the rebels who terrorized the convent nuns of Maaloula.

If we strike Syria and break its army, what happens to 2 million Syrian Christians? Does anyone care?

– See more at: http://www.chroniclesmagazine.org/2013/09/10/america-says-no-to-a-beltway-war/#sthash.3Pl4y9UR.dpufBut Assad’s Syrian Army has reportedly retaken the town. How much longer they will be able to hold out against the Rebels remains to be seen.Veteran political leaders and the public in general have called the Federal government out on proposed strikes on Syria, even though the Fed has been waging a proxy war all the while.

Said Vladimir Putin, most notable thorn in the side of Obama’s Jihad:

The potential strike by the United States against Syria, despite strong opposition from many countries and major political and religious leaders, including the pope, will result in more innocent victims and escalation, potentially spreading the conflict far beyond Syria’s borders…There are few champions of democracy in Syria. But there are more than enough Qaeda fighters and extremists of all stripes battling the government…In the United States, many draw an analogy between Iraq and Syria, and ask why their government would want to repeat recent mistakes.

Putin understands the far-reaching effects of the U.S. foreign policy. In aiding Jihadists, the Federal government is aiding global terrorism. These people are not content to fight solely in their own countries, but have shifted from Iraq, to Libya, to Syria. One Jihadist stated:

Almighty Allah has made Jihad a duty on us. When our Muslim brethren are oppressed, it is a duty to support them wherever they are, because Muslims are not separated by countries

The Federal government, despite all wake-up calls (like the attack on the consulate at Benghazi), continues a foreign policy that makes Kim Jong-un look like Bismarck. It forever seeks the removal of moderates who protected the presence of Christians (Hussein, Mubarak, now Assad) to be replaced by radically militant democracies. Christians in Iraq, Egypt, and now Syria continue to fall prey to the machinations of a Federal government with a God complex.

Others see more ominous signs of the Federal Government’s attack. Pat Buchanan says Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons “was made up…false flag.” Ron Paul joined suit. Two former hostages said they overheard Rebels say that they had used the chemicals. This comes on the tail of a little known leak in January which stated that the United States had plans to use sarin gas and then blame it on Assad.

In a masterful piece, Pat Buchanan shines a light on the Fed’s lunacy:

(W)here is Obama? He is out lobbying Congress for authority to attack the Syrian army that defended Maaloula as John McCain beats the drums for a Senate resolution to have the U.S. military “change the momentum” of the war to the rebels who terrorized the convent nuns of Maaloula.

Syria-Christian

Then he asks the ultimate question:

If we strike Syria and break its army, what happens to 2 million Syrian Christians? Does anyone care?

Alabamians care, even if our overlords do not.

Think of me, I beseech you, so that I may achieve with you the same fate of martyrdom.

-Hippolytus of Rome, 204 A.D.
