The Unmaking of America —
Dream became a Nightmare
June 27, 2015
The Day Perversion became Policy
On this day, June 27, 2015,
the Supreme Court of America began what turned out to be the remarkably
facile process of unmaking what had been, until the ascendancy of Obama
in 2008, the making of America as a land of religious liberty, the indefeasibility
of personal conscience, freedom of speech, and freedom from religious
and political persecution. It was a land free of tyranny and unstained
by despotism. One thought freely and one expressed oneself freely: without
fear of an iron fist to stifle either. The public square was the venue
of competing thoughts and challenging ideas — not a stage for staged
protests by adult and largely spoiled prepubescents.
No one owned the square and no one could evict you from
it. Civility ruled in a civil society. The rule of the mob was
a blight from the past — the name-calling, the branding, the scurrilous
labeling of those who disagreed with you: these were, after all, the
hallmarks of fascism long banished by the Great Generation. That
is, until the Left — that cubistic pastiche of self-acclaimed
academics, self-styled revolutionaries, militant atheists, and hate-mongers
took ownership of the square and cordoned off democracy for the exclusive
use of the faux-illuminati who turned out to be no more enlightened
than the National Socialists of Germany in 1933.
Thoughtless, monotonous, and easily-memorized slogans
(“What do we want?” … “When do we want it? Now!”)
replaced rational thought and legitimate speech (speech requires
mind, slogan only requires the monotony of stultifying voices). It is
essentially the perpetual cry, and the sole thought-process, of children:
“We want it! And we want it now! And if you don’t give it
to us now we will throw a fit, sulk, cry, and grate on you until you
relent.” Ask any parent who has raised spoiled children on the pabulum
of Dr. Spock. We have learned that if you piss and moan a lot you will
get your way because you are too obnoxious to be further tolerated by
thin-skinned and “enlightened” parents more concerned with the feng
shui of their house than the character of their children. This is
where they often first learn how to win: by virtue of sound —
not by merit.
All that changed today. The Supreme Court arrogated to
itself the right — hitherto reserved to God Who Himself instituted
it — to redefine marriage ...
no longer as the union of one man and one woman
(from time immemorial) — and to accord this divine dignity
by nothing less than political fiat, to a perverse
but wealthy fringe of homosexuals and lesbians intent on unraveling,
and then destroying the fabric of the family in America. But, of course,
it first it had to be “redefined” by those who never possessed
the audacity of having first defined what had always been understood.
The implications are enormous. America, as it had
been, no longer is. It is the land of the perverse and the home
of the muzzled. Freedom was not enhanced this 27th day of June, 2015
— it was marginalized, “redefined”, and brutally crushed by the few
for the few, by the powerful over the powerless, by those who govern,
over the governed.
Today, the concept of the family was not redefined
by law. It simply ceased to exist. The American experiment was grand,
but because it was good and largely religious, it was ultimately doomed
to failure. The good ever antagonizes evil, and the content, the malcontent.
Does it really surprise you?
Whence, perforce, we must ask, comes the power that crushes
what will not adulate it? Who gave them this power? The answer was provided
over 2000 years ago:
(St. Luke 4.5-6)
“And the devil led Him into a high mountain, and
showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time, and
he said to Him: To Thee will I give all this power, and the glory
of them; for to me they are delivered, and to whom I will, I
this power and the glory of them ... are delivered to me —
and to whom I will, I give them."
Ponder this ... and the terrible predicament in which we find ourselves
Then ask yourself
for whom — and what — you really voted
in 2008 and re-instantiating the notion of stupidity, again in 2012.
How will you answer your children and grandchildren for what you have
done, what you have made possible. Or will you, too, be (dare we say)
a “denier”? Will you deny the state its pound of flesh
and teach your children in the (once secret) confines of your house?
In the dark? In “Priest-holes” like Recusants in 16th century England?
What if they, the little ones, inadvertently speak
of it outside the home (Es ist möglich)? Indeed, in this godless
technocracy is there any place to hide from Big Brother who has
big problems with your choosing God over them,
over the policy, over the agendum ... that you yourself ratified
when you voted ultimately for your children — if, biologically, any
more are forthcoming.
What have you taken
from them that you yourself,
upon a time, once enjoyed — and why?
When we banished
God from America, we banished the source of all our blessings.
We worshipped at the altar of politics and race and gender and correctitude.
Is it any wonder we now worship “false and lying gods”? The pantheon
is now in Washington. Go. Worship there … because your house, your Church,
your family has been pulled down here. At the expense of being crass,
you kissed their asses already … and because you have, you cannot kiss
Goodbye America —
until a better comes along or the real thing, thrown down in tatters
of red, white, and blue revivifies or finds a more worthy nation. And
at the moment there is no such on the earth.
