Our Immoral and Unrighteous Government

Message from a reader, yesterday: “I suggest you limit your crusade to morality and righteousness in America, and leave climate change alone…”

Well, I would–only when government gets into the flim-flam business to take the people’s money and their liberties, I’d say that was pretty immoral and unrighteous.

What I don’t see is how morality and righteousness can thrive in any nation where the government uses lies and scare tactics to increase its power and wealth at the people’s expense. I write about Global Warming/Climate Change/Whatevuh because it shows Stalinist wannabes trying to use “science” as an excuse to impose their will.

If we believe in Man-Made Global Warming, and if we believe that government can protect us from it, if we give government vast new powers, we are just asking to be enslaved.

The federal government of the United State has taken unto itself powers far in excess of those enumerated powers assigned to it under the Constitution. Before we trust them with more power, let’s look at what they do with the power that they have already.

They run up huge public debt, much of it for vain and frivolous projects, and endanger the economic well-being of future generations.

They have intruded the government into every sphere of public life, in spite of the Tenth Amendment, which limits the federal government’s powers to those enumerated in the Constitution.

They campaign against Christianity, trying to drive it out of the public decision-making process.

They promote abortion, and seek to force Christians and other objectors to fund it.

They promote homosexuality.

They play class warfare and encourage the people to covet their neighbors’ property, and to envy them.

They foment and inflame all kinds of bitter divisions and rivalries among the American people, for their own political advantage.

They steal from us. No one goes home poor from Capitol Hill.

They seek continually to erode our freedoms, especially those guaranteed to us under the First and Second Amendments.

Finally, I don’t know about you, but this particular administration’s lust for lawlessness, nakedly and boldly expressed by its top officials, leaves me breathless.

Do you really want to give more power to persons who have done so much wickedness with the power that they have?

    Now THIS is an article Christians can support and learn from. Thank you, sir, from rising from the ashes of your sad, silly article about how the Dems paved over your town to a solid piece that correctly frames the root of the problem: STATISM. AN OUT-OF-CONTROL FEDERAL GOVT, not a political pary.

    I could pick a bone in that it is not just the party currently in power that has been using environmentalism to push socialism, but your point overall was well made and I cannot otherwise disagree with anything you stated. Much better work this time.

    So, if 97% of the climatologists say that we have caused the global warming problem and should do something to correct it, this is just some left-wing conspiracy? In my mainstream Protestant denomination, we were taught that we should be stewards of the earth for the next generation. Promoting ecology is not going to “enslave” anyone. I will trust the scientists before our right-wing friends, who don’t seem to be all that interested in reality.

      And if 97% of ‘climatologists’ are liars, are you going to jump off a bridge?
      Happy landings.

      • Clint Batterton

        Our paranoid friends of the right have never explained to me why 97% of the scientists would lie.

          Greed, vanity and fear.
          Duh.

          • Clint Batterton

            And your evidence of “greed, vanity and fear” would be what? Do you think that all science is motivated by “greed, vanity and fear” or just the scientific conclusions you don’t want to believe?

          • Guest

            Yes.

          • Clint Batterton

            Well, that’s convenient. You can freely substitute ignorance and superstition for the facts by just declaring all scientific opinion to be untrustworthy, as predicted in a recent book on “The Republican Brain.”

          • I can freely substitute can I?
            Gee thanks, that’s mighty white of you,
            but who told you I was a Republican?

    “What I don’t see is how morality and righteousness can thrive in any nation where the government uses lies and scare tactics to increase its power and wealth at the people’s expense.”
    The government should leave the lies and scare tactics to those who are experts in those areas, such as Liberty Counsel and Matt Barber.
