It is appropriate—necessary to call on Holy Scripture. Today is one of those days for which this scripture passage was given—Isaiah 5:20-21:

20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that count darkness as light, and light as darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

I mean that for one hundred years Progressive men have worked to pull America from the God given light of her birth into the darkness of Marxism. The progress, slow at first, was almost impossible to detect. But Marxist progress has proved to be exponential. By the 1960’s, Progressives were making real progress. The pull towards darkness seemed to slow in the 1980’s. It was an illusion.

We were looking at the U.S. Congress and especially the Federal executive. We missed the courts. We missed the Academy and the taken over of public schools by thug unions. We missed what was changing in the Nations news media. We ignored the popular music, movie and television culture. We ignored the record number of dead babies piling up. We turned our heads as a culture redefined the God given and very good gift of sex into perverse fornication cheapening all of us—especially women—and mocking God.

Freedom, actuated in God, was replaced with harsh rules and divisions called Political Correctness. Soon businesses were operating under this darkness rather than standing in the light. This bending to the will of the evil one had all the momentum by this decade culminating in the election November 6, 2012 when America crossed over into the abyss. Just this past week the San Francisco 49ers (who are playing this very day in the Super Bowl) demonstrated the slide of the great NFL from the integrity of light into the slime of darkness. The 49er statement:

“The San Francisco 49ers reject the comments that were made yesterday, and have addressed the matter with Chris,” the team’s statement said. “There is no place for discrimination within our organization at any level. We have and always will proudly support the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community.”

Do you notice how the slimy dark pronouncements are phrased so cunningly as to appear to America’s new class of ignorant dimwits as if darkness is actually light?

Here is an example of ignorant dimwits: After viewing The Battle Hymn of the Republic as performed by the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir at the inauguration ceremony just this past January 21, 2013, a dim bulb in the darkness of this abyss wrote, “I like to think that God in America is Jesus, Alah, Yahweh, the universe, mother earth, your children, or anything else that creates the supreme feeling of love and peace for that person. To me, that is secularism. That is America.”

God help us. Jesus is God! Yahweh is God. Allah is the living Prince of darkness. The rest is a pitiful babble that in the 1940’s might have been thought a strong indicator of insanity. Every instructor of equity and diversity on campi across America to future teachers of our children must be pretty confident the Alinsky rules continue to work.

Where is the Church? Missing. Is there hope? Of course. There is sweet. There is light. There is good. There is Goodness! There are those who do not count themselves wise and prudent in their own sight. They are carriers of the light. If you are reading this, you too are a carrier or potential carrier of the light. Welcome. Come on along!
