Bernie’s Oppressive America

By | LBB, Legal, News and Events | No Comments

Sen. Bernie Sanders’ socialism enjoyed surprising popularity in the last presidential election.  This is disturbing to any student of history, given the overwhelming evidence of oppression that follows the implementation of that treacherous philosophy anywhere in the world.

That explains, in part, his popularity with young people, who are unfortunately and increasingly unaware of the perils of socialism and communism throughout history.

But I hope these young people got a chance to see what Sen. Sanders’ insidious philosophy leads to, as he shamefully attacked Russell T. Vought, who is nominated to be the next deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget, for his Christian faith.

Sen. Sanders said, “You wrote, ‘Muslims do not simply have a deficient theology. They do not know God because they rejected Jesus Christ His Son and they stand condemned.’ Do you believe that statement is Islamophobic?”

As Mr. Vought sought to humbly and patiently explain that yes, he was indeed a Christian, Sen. Sanders continued to interrupt him and press him for his “intolerance.”

At one point Sen. Sanders rudely interrupted to say with much vigor:

I understand you are a Christian, but this country is made up of people who are not just … like I understand that Christianity is the majority religion, but there are other people of different religions in this country and around the world. In your judgment, do you think that people who are not Christians are going to be condemned?

That, ladies and gentlemen, is the face of intolerance and oppression.  In Sen. Sanders’ warped, darkened mind, to believe in any religion is bigoted.  To have an internal peace and assurance of what happens after death is offensive to others.  Just stop and consider how pernicious that is.  What difference does it make for me if someone believes in his mind that I am going to Hell?

None.  Unless it is true, and then I should probably reconsider what I’m doing.  But someone else’s thinking has no bearing on me.

Not in Sen. Sanders’ deviate mind.  His sort of childish maliciousness was described by the famous English writer and philosopher G.K Chesterton when he said, “The homeless intellectualism of an unhappy age often uses the term [bigoted] for anybody who is sure that he is right and other people are wrong.”

This is true enough of Sen. Sanders and contemptible to be sure.  But Sen. Sanders takes his personal insecurities one step further, seeking to implement them in public policy.  Therefore, he condemns this nominee for his Christian faith, saying, “I would simply say, Mr. Chairman, that this nominee is really not someone who is what this country is supposed to be about. I really don’t.”

All because of his faith in Jesus Christ.

In Sen. Sanders’ America, no serious Christian could have a job in government, because they believe in John 3:16, that “God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.”

Sen. Sanders should be ashamed of himself, and all his supporters should open their eyes to the truth about him.  Not to mention he should be ostracized by his colleagues.

He is no pioneer.  Many communist dictators shared his crooked ways while they killed millions and oppressed their countrymen — which is why when our Founding Fathers conceived of our Constitution, they enshrined a clear guard against such imposition by radicals like Bernie Sanders.

Article VI of the U.S. Constitution concludes by saying:

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States. (Emphasis mine.)

Sen. Sanders seemed concerned with the number of Muslims in our country.  He said, “I don’t know how many Muslims there are in America. I really don’t know, probably a couple of million.”

What difference does it make?  Perhaps Sen. Sanders thinks in those terms, in terms of voters.  But Mr. Vought tried to explain the Christian view that all men, regardless of their religion, are to be respected, having been created in the image of God.

Vought started to explain before Sanders interrupted again, “As a Christian, I believe that all individuals are made in the image of God and are worthy of dignity and respect, regardless of their religious beliefs. I believe that, as a Christian, that’s how I should treat all individuals …”

Sen. Sanders’ willful blindness ignores that the freedom and tolerance we enjoy in America were born out of Biblical soil.  Because we believe in a Creator, to Whom we are accountable, we are encouraged to engage one another in conversation, persuading one another with respect and dignity as to the dictates of our faith.

Following Sen. Sanders’ bigoted ways, engagement loses its appeal (as the government demands, under the threat of law, that all beliefs are equal), and we grow divided and fearful of one another.

Bernie Sanders’ America is a dark, oppressive place that would be the death of America as a beacon of freedom, and I hope Americans, regardless of political persuasion, will unite in condemning such a hideous political philosophy.

Under President Trump, the U.S. Returns to Honoring Life Globally

By | LBB, Legal, News and Events, Sanctity of Life | No Comments

One of the things President Donald Trump should be most proud of from his short time in the White House is his decision to move the U.S. away from the hideous business of promoting abortion-on-demand around the world.

On Jan. 23, 2017, just three days after his swearing-in ceremony, President Trump reinstated what has been known as the “Mexico City Policy” (because of its roots at a population conference in Mexico City). The policy, initiated by President Ronald Reagan in 1984, to the delight of most Americans, prohibits U.S. taxpayer dollars from going to organizations that perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning abroad.

Big Abortion, of course, despises the policy…
