Ever wonder how an American Presidential administration could become a welcoming beacon, a place of employment, extending even to a springboard and a platform for the espousal of radical, anti-American philosophy by an “open” communist (Van Jones)? When last we checked,this was America, right? Like, with tenets, ideals, foundations, charters and shared beliefs? These things we thought were sacred in our republican democracy – free enterprise, freedom, truth and a moral compass – these things were to be jeopardized necessarily by the employment of those philosophically and doggedly opposed to our cardinal tenets to act with official sanction from within the offices of our government?
How could this have happened? How could the American institutions just surrender like that? An open Communist ensconced in a position of some authority and influence within the government, a government which has spent a good portion of it’s existence going back generations not only railing against Communism as not a fit model, but sacrificing trillions of dollars and countless American lives combatting it? How could this come about?
After 33 years of debate, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has voted to change its constitution and allow openly gay people in same-sex relationships to be ordained as ministers, elders and deacons.
That’s right. Not to be outdone by the Episcopalians, the Presbyterians have installed as professors of what the faith is nowadays those previously thought to be, in at least some important ways, in antithesis to the teachings of the Good Books.
We’ve come a long way, haven’t we?
