In the most recent podcast, we discussed how the left has really been focusing on Christianity in it’s anti-Trump, anti-conservative war. These recent changes were highlighted by VP Mike Pence on Saturday in his commencement speech at Liberty University. VP Pence encouraged graduates from the evangelical school about the lack of tolerance from the left regarding Christian views. He told the graduates to be ready as they go about their lives.
This warning is indeed true based on many events in the past couple of weeks. Pennsylvania State Representative Brian Sims, a Democrat, recently called some women praying outside a Planned Parenthood clinic “pseudo-Christians” and that they were only people shaming. After some backlash, including a tweet from Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Rep. Sims doubled down, calling those responding to him “Bible Bullies” and that Christians were bigots, sexists, and misogynists with fake and broken values. No one on the left spoke out against him or to ask him to back off the comments. He has since blocked his Twitter account from public access.
Democratic Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg also made some comments towards Christianity in the past few weeks. He claimed that religion should not be used as a weapon in the political realm, but that if God did belong to a political party, it wouldn’t be the one that sent President Trump to the White House. Buttigieg was not the only Presidential Candidate to get in on the anti-religion comments.
Senator Cory Booker also spoke out against religious activities in recent comments regarding gun control. In a recent interview on The Axe Files, Booker stated that the offering of “thoughts and prayers” was in essence pointless. He stated his apologies for stating this as a main of faith, but would someone of faith discount prayers even if it was a situation that they disagreed with? Senator Booker was quick to call out the need for gun control after the STEM school shooting, but did not call out the fact that the shooting was by left wing radical who was anti-Christian and spoke out against conservatives and Christians.
Our founding fathers realized that all the rights we claim and vow to protect were endowed by our Creator. The war on Christianity in America is an interesting turn of events for a country that once prided itself with statements such as “In God We Trust.”
