As a religious conservative, I swear a promise to my liberal, homosexual and atheistic/agnostic fellow Americans that, despite our differences, I will be there for you if at anytime you are met with any of the following adversities:
I do hope I can expect the same from you. I would hope you don’t seek the utter demise and silencing of those who cannot go along with your beliefs rooted in scientism and religious humanism. And I hope you realize it is a disingenuous and lazy cheap shot to merely write off those who hold traditional values and Biblical beliefs as “phobes” and “ignorant” without a comprehensive consideration of all the realities of the human experience throughout the ages (and profound existential reflections).
Because with all the sincerity in my heart and soul, there are a few areas I cannot stand with you and I hope you understand that these are based on principles that are rooted in natural law, constitutional law and the moral law of our sovereign Creator from whom all things good are derived.
Those things I cannot support include, but are not be limited to:
Celebrations, Practices, Rituals, Entertainments, Policies, Movements, Promotions and Sponsorship of godless, reckless, immoral, experimental, impulsive, destructive, unfounded and inconsistent demands/ideals that contradict Biblical truth, foundational principles, sound practices, traditional values, responsible decisions and a religious conscience. This is not a personal judgement against you. But I’m of the belief that public opinion cannot be manipulated by misrepresentations, false justifications and sinister deviations.
If you want to make your case for your ideology in a thoughtful, respectful manner (rather than stifle dissent, and rudely dismiss tried, true, traditional, empirical and proven arguments in favor of a random, unprincipled form of equality) then don’t expect those from whom you seek respect and acknowledgement to embrace your achievements.
Because your whole agenda has been contrived.
A utopian illusion will have been established on a shaky, arbitrary foundation through forceful and deceptive means.
The viability, feasibility and sustainability of your ideological worldview has been created with smoke and mirrors — and what will America do when it all comes crashing down on you and me?
Where do you get wisdom? What do you do with it? And what will be the ultimate outcome/consequence of such a temporal, impulsive, knee-jerk, pleasure-seeking, self-aggrandizing philosophy?
These are the terms.
I hope you will thoughtfully consider my memorandum of understanding.
