I while ago I made a post called They Need Jesus and another called Heathens, both of which touched on the progressive church of state. The Left has replaced Judeo-Christian religion with politics in their own lives. They believe in government the way the faithful believe in god.
I think this tweet by Senator Chris Murphy illustrates that like no other.
To any reasonable person, that is complete bullshit. A sick child, a family member having difficult personal problems, the death of a loved one, how are any of these, or a million other vexations in life solved by political action? Of course, they are not.
I wanted to touch on this idea again on the topic of the destruction of monuments and statues.
Others have commented on Antifa being like ISIS in their destruction of monuments. They have no idea how right they are.
ISIS destroys statues for two reasons: they represent a faith other than Islam and they are idolatry, which is expressly forbidden in Islam. Islam is a totalitarian faith that allows no expressions of any other faith in the land it controls. It is a religious duty for Muslims to destroy religious idols.
Vice made the argument that we should Get rid of Mt. Rushmore, because the is:
“[S]uspicious of are monuments produced by the state, which tend to flatten out nuances and turn flawed individuals into tools of propaganda that bolster a kind of religious patriotism.”
This is the same writer that described the Washington Monument as “George Washington’s phallus towering over everything in DC.” Because making a dick joke out of the Washington Monument is barely 8th grade humor, forgetting the obelisk as a monument dates back to ancient Egypt.
His idea of “religious patriotism” is projection. The cherry tree story about Washington is OK for kids, but adults are supposed to understand the truth about history. Our founders, like every other human on Earth, were flawed.
Why build monuments to them? Because we understand that some men seized a moment or rose to an occasion and did something that changed the course of history. We owe it to ourselves to remember that.
For the faithful in the church of state a monument is more than a reminder, it is an idol. They fashion the politicians they support into figures of greatness.
Hillary as an unstoppable giant and a world unto herself.
The great Saint Obama.
Because these people engage regularly in political idolatry, they assume the rest of us do to.
They see monuments to Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, even Confederate leaders and assume they are there for us to worship and fawn over.
They cannot stand to see them because they are literally idols of another faith.
The belief system of these Leftist and of ISIS isn’t just similar, it is identical.
They must purge the idols and symbols of all competing faiths from the areas that they control.
