I just finished closing files on 2011 and put up the new 2012 calendars. But I almost missed the little leftwing “Occupy Christmas” fraud. Perhaps you did as well. This first post of 2012 will clean up that thread from 2011.
“Occupy Christmas?” Thousands of leftists were trying to “fundamentally transform” America by “fundamentally transforming” Christ—again. An example is some lost little soul named Richard Eskow who wrote, “It doesn’t matter whether or not you believe in God or which faith you follow if you do. Here’s a question worth asking this holiday season: Would Jesus be an Occupy demonstrator?”
Really? It doesn’t matter if you believe in God? I humbly submit belief in God is what does matter! It doesn’t matter which faith you follow? If you understand that Allah is not God, there are only two faiths that do believe in God. Eskow’s answer is, yes, of course He would be an Occupier. That He threw the money changers out of the Temple is Mr. Eskow’s evidence. It is interesting that, even though he paints Jesus as a follower of Marx, he capitalizes “He” each time the pronoun applies to Jesus. Perhaps it matters in the recesses of Mr. Eskow’s DNA.
The point of the “Occupy Christmas” campaign was no different than Black Liberation Theology or Social Justice Theology. Make no mistake, in the end it always comes down to using Jesus as a tool to take someone else’s money or, far more importantly, their Liberty. “Occupy Christmas” was just another sorry example of the whole thug Occupy crowd in 2011. Expect more of it this year. We must not let this attempt to smother Liberty succeed.
