A treatment of the book ‘Sundiata’ for students of Dr. Sara Butler at Loyola University in New Orleans.

January, Anno Domini 2014
As in the example of Homeric oral transmission tradition that resulted in contemporaneous development of many early versions of
the Iliad, the cultural traditions of the people who orally transmitted the epic tale the Sundiata in and around the African country of Mali have resulted in a multitude of versions of the tale. In fact, the oral transmission tradition affords those doing the transmitting the ability to extend to themselves without license the authority to conveniently alter the story being transmitted howsoever they so choose—a delusional elitist assumption of authority that mirrors in its presumptive nature the presumption of innate authoritative right exhibited in the stereotypical self-aggrandizing symptoms of the mental disorder prevalent among Liberal-socialists called malignant narcissism.
“Historian D.T. Niane received this version of the Sundiata epic from Djeli (griot) Mamoudou Kouyate.” (‘Sundiata. An Epic Of Old Mali.’ Revised Edition. Third Impression 2007. By D. T. Niane. ISBN 978-1-4058-4942-5. © Longman Group Ltd., 1965. Pg. vii.)
Mr. Niane ludicrously maintains that “Griots were professional historians…,” (Niane. Pg. xiv.), a preposterous equivocation of the communication of self-serving agenda driven story tellers who the author readily acknowledges create multitudinous versions of their so-called “history” in the retelling of their epic tale, or fairy-tale, not unlike the fantastically imaginative construction of the various ‘katapoleis’ versions of Hellenistic epics which were eventually consolidated into widely accepted versions in the course of their oral and literary development, with the work of historians.
As a professed historian himself, Mr. Niane offends the legitimacy of the work of his peers and the discipline of the study of history in his irrational comparison as if such a comparison were reasonable to make.
Mr. Niane’s assertion that “Griots were professional historians…” (Niane. Pg. xiv), is rendered more inexcusable by the profound incongruency of that statement with his ridiculous postulation that “…historical accuracy…” “…may not be particularly important in African oral tradition.” (Niane. Pg. xv.)
The incongruence begs the question as to why, when he maintains historical accuracy may not be important, he would characterize a griot as an historian. One is forced to wonder
what type of historian embraces a belief that historical accuracy is not important! The answer of course is a pathetic, delusional, Liberal-socialist historical revisionist
Mr. Niane’s inconsistent rational reflects a delusional adoration of the culture in which the Sundiata developed as well as an adoration of the Islamic philosophical/political ideology that has continued to infect the region which override any rational analysis that a historian should embrace as method.
The absurd notion that a griot performing their story musically in public “…thereby making the tale a communal, shared experience that is relived repeatedly…” (Niane. Pg. xxiv), somehow lends validity to the admittedly inaccurate and manipulable oral epic as somehow
being true—i.e. “…Kouyate claims to speak no “untruth…” (Niane. Pg. xvi), is logically inconsistent and intellectually disingenuous—in the vernacular: It is bullshit.
It is asserted by Mr. Niane that the griot Kouyate’s “…philosophy of history (Pp. 1-2, Pp. 40-43, Pp. 83-84) is one of the greatest gifts of this epic tale, because it reminds us of the resilience of indigenous African cultures,…” (Niane. Pg. vii), a moral judgment upon said cultures as qualitatively good despite the actual, factual, historical record of cultures within the region as well as regarding the brutality visited upon those cultures and quite literally made a component of those cultures by the infiltration of Islam contemporaneously with the time period in which the events reflected in the Sundiata epic purportedly transpired due to the advancement of Islamic civilization jihad.
“By the time of Sundiata, Islam was firmly established in the area.” (Niane.
Mr. Niane, unabashedly reveals his adoration of Islam when he obsequiously writes, “Islam first reached West Africa south of the Sahara in the 9th century AD
bene the choice of words, i.e. “thanks”), “…to the arrival of traders from the north.” (Niane. Pg. xi.) A simple ‘due to the arrival of traders’ would surely have sufficed. The salutary extension of gratitude for the arrival of Islam having taken place by his employment of the words ‘thanks
to’ is undeniably most telling as to the author’s affinity towards Islam.
The deplorable attempt by the author to minimize the wickedness of Islam’s do ctrinally defended practice of enslaving non-Muslims as somehow magnanimously beneficial is truly pathetic. Mr. Niane writes, “Slavery
in Malinke society was most often a
means to connect individuals to a family where no biological or marriage connection existed.” (Niane. Pg. xiii.) Isn’t that just precious?
Such efforts at historical revision are common among Islamist apologist as exemplified in the perpetual efforts at promulgating the Andalusian myth of a peaceful and prosperous Islamic society for all inhabitants during the Islamist occupation of Spain or by the absurd suggestion that there even exists an homogenous people group who can trace their ancestry to the Philistines, i.e. the so-called in reality non-existent ‘Palestinian’ people. The very word ‘Palestine’ is a Latinization of the Hebrew word for the historical arch-enemy of the Jews, the Phillistines; a label which the Roman emperor Hadrian placed upon the land of Israel after the
2nd Kochbar Revolt as a means of adding insult to injury—a retributive act against the defeated Jews for having caused him such great annoyance, but most importantly to the subject of the dissemination of falsehood by way of historical revision is the fact that the Jews never relinquished the claim to the land that was given them by God, and no authority—not the United Nations or the League of Nations—has ever superseded the authority by which the land of Israel was designated as belonging to the Jewish people.
Apparently Mr. Niane never considered alternative options of perhaps employment or adoption—methods employed by many other contemporaneous cultures around the world as a means of connecting displaced individuals with a means of survival as opposed to enslavement. Such respect for fellow man would not occur to those who embraced the teachings of Islam then or who do now.
Consider the hypocrisy, for example, in the statement, “Ghana began to fall apart in the 11th century following an invasion by the Muslim Almoravids from the north.” (Niane. Pg. xiii.) Would not any historian characterize the collapse of a society after an invasion as a conquest over said society? ‘Began to fall apart’ is an historical revisionist’s euphemism for a collapse that obviously occurred as a result of having been invaded.
Mr. Niane reveals his cultural bias against Western, Judeo-Christian culture when he scornfully writes that “…the West has taught us to scorn oral sources in matters of history,…” (Niane. Pg. xxiv.) Nothing could be further from the truth.
In matters of recent history oral traditions are vigorously sought out by Western historians, but only given the consideration due them. Consider if a Western historian were to investigate the oral traditions of the Sundiata: By his own admission Mr. Niane would agree that many versions of the epic would be encountered, yet he caustically makes the accusation
that in Western culture, “…all that is not written in black and white…” is “…considered without foundation.”
This insupportable charge is an insult to Western historical tradition which has virtually established the academic endeavor of historical research.
The history of the study of history in Western culture is replete with exemplary historians who have contributed to the accuracy of Mankind’s understanding of the past.
Among the tools of their trade historians utilize archaeology and sound methods of higher textual criticism which do not include the unsound methods of the various Radical Historical-Critical Schools of Higher Textual Criticism, a.k.a. Form Criticism, Liberal Criticism, ‘Progressive’ Criticism, Higher Criticism, Source Criticism, Documentarians, Redaction Criticism, etc…, which have been demonstrably proven as unreliable in the definitive two volume work on the subject ‘Evidence That Demands A Verdict’ by Josh McDowell, in order to determine as accurately as possible a realistic picture of that which transpired in the past.
Additional recommended reading on the subject: ‘The Historical-Critical Method of Bible Interpretation’ by Siegbert W. Becker.
Consider the lunacy of Mr. Niane’s assertion that “…there are those who are sufficiently narrow-minded to regard ‘speaking documents,’ which the griots are, with disdain,…” (Niane. Pg. xxiv), when he readily acknowledges that the griots are free to reconstruct their so-called “history,” their epic story, their fairy-tale, howsoever they choose at any given time and place!
It is not with disdain that there are those sufficiently skeptical of the ever-changing versions of the story to consider the source of a griot as nothing more than it is—dubious in the extreme and untrustworthy as history.
The griot, or story teller, telling the tale of the Sundiata, Djeli Mamoudou Kouyate, makes no effort in his introduction at obscuring what he regards narcissistically as his belief in his and his lineage’s enigmatically acquired authority to “…teach
to the vulgar
just as much as we want to teach them,…” (Niane. Pg. 1.)
Such an admission by the griot should, in addition to other challenges to the historical validity of orally transmitted reports by historians who employ sound methods of historical investigation, sendoff warning alarms in the minds of any who would with a respect for truth wish to investigate the historicity of any version of the epic tale under scrutiny.
Mr. Kouyate literally admits to an elitist predisposition to relating the story howsoever he so chooses to at any given time and place presumably to achieve an ulterior objective should the situation dictate that he should have such an objective in any given situation. He is basically claiming justification for his position by using the invalid Sitz im Leben “authority” of the purportedly elite within the so-called Creative Community construct of the Form Critics to direct the evolution of the story according to the needs of his “Community,” no doubt guided by the spirit of the age or contemporaneous Zeitgeist construct, a counterfeit of the person of the Holy Spirit that is certainly identifiable as one or another among the many various spirits mentioned in the Sundiata, as said superiorly enlightened with a sociologically defined verstehen ‘Legislative Leader or Superman,’ (to use Frederic Bastiat’s descriptions), ‘Forward,’ (the oft repeated marching order of the Liberal-socialist), wheresoever he feels at any given moment in time is the right direction in which to move. The moral rightness or wrongness of any given situation is therefore assumed by the Liberal-socialist to be relevant to the Sitz im Leben—the situation, and may be changed, (hence the oft repeated demand for ‘Change’ of the Leftist ‘Progressives’), howsoever the self-proclaimed Legislative Leaders—Community Organizers—wish to change their dictation of just what the rest of society is to regard as
morally right or wrong. Adherents to a Liberal-socialist worldview, i.e. the religion of Liberalism, then proceed to legislate their new moral position and that which under biblical standards of righteousness was regarded rightly as wrong, as sin, is now deemed socially acceptable, and everyone had better accept it or they will find themselves punishable by the state.
Faulty Developmental Foundation of Liberal “Theology’s” Accepted Methods of Higher Literary Textual Criticism:
―An evolutionary understanding of history and an anthropocentric view of religion dominated the 19th century. The prevailing thinkers viewed religion as devoid of any divine intervention, explaining it as a natural development produced by man‘s subjective needs.‖ (‗Evidence That
Demands a Verdict' by Josh McDowell, Volume II, Pg. 55. Here‘s Life Publishe rs, Inc. ISBN 0-918956-73-0.)
“That the then-current evolutionary philosophy of Hegel had a definite effect on Old Testament studies is clearly attested to by Herbert Hahn: ―The conception of historical development was the chief contribution of the liberal critics to the exegesis of the Old Testament. It is true of course that this conception did not grow merely from an objective reading of the sources. In a larger sense, it was a reflection of the intellectual temper of the times. The genetic conception of Old Testament history fitted in with the evolutionary principle of interpretation prevailing in contemporary science and philosophy. In the natural sciences, the influence of Darwin had made the theory of evolution the predominant hypothesis affecting research.‖ ―In every department of historical investigation the conception of development was being used to explain the history of man‘s thought, his institutions, and even his religious faiths. It was not strange that the same principle should be applied to the explanation of Old Testament history. In every age exegesis has concormed (Sic) to the thought forms of the time, and in the latter half of the nineteenth century thought was dominated by the scientific methos and an evolutionary view of history. 31/9,10‖” (‗Evidence That Demands a Verdict' by Josh McDowell, Volume II, Pg. 55.

―In the historical sciences and in the areas of religious and philosophical thought, the evolutionary concept had begun to exercise a powerful influence after Hegel had substituted the notion of ‗becoming‘ for the idea of ‗being.‘ He had arrived at the notion by a priori reasoning without testing it by scientific application to observable fact, but Hegel was none the less the intellectual progenitor of the modern point of view.‖ (McDowell.

The Graf-Wellhausen Documentary Hypothesis was spawned in the age when Darwinian evolutionary thought permeated all areas of investigation from Wellhausen‘s application of Hegel‘s to literary textual criticism—especially biblical higher textual criticsm. So, the 'Darwinian' theory of evolution—existent long before Mr. Darwin popularized it— exerted its developmental aspects on the age in which Wellhausen adopted Hegel‘s earlier developmental conclusions surrounding literary textual criticism, and especially the textual criticism of biblical text‘s source documents—real or supposed. The Graf-Wellhausen hypothesis is based upon conjecture and pre-supposition and outright fabrications such as the purported J/E/P/D structure of supposed source documents for which not a single scrap of evidence exists, and it was the Graf-Wellhausen Documentarians who spawned the complete spectrum of blind radical historical-critical schools of textual criticism: Form
Criticism, "Modern" Criticism, Source Criticism, Redaction Criticism, Radical Criticism, Liberal Criticism, "Progressive" Criticism, etc. ad nauseum.
Therein lay the roots of modern legalistic attempts at unjustifiable, doctrinally aberrant, Liberal “theology” which denies the authority of Scripture and provides an indefensible excuse for its proponents to advance ‘Forward’ in every cultural arena spiritually, philosophically, ideologically, mentally, morally, economically, militarily and religiously. The only other religion/philosophical-political ideology that exerts itself so ubiquitously into every sphere of human existence in such a totalitarian manner is the murderous cult of Islam.
It is Written:
‖For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
Professing to be wise, they became fools. and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and fourfooted animals and creeping things. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever, Amen. For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evilmindedness, they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, un-loving, unforgiving, unmerciful;
who knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.‖ (Romans 1:18-32. The Spirit Filled Bible. Personal Study Bible
Unveiling God‟s Fullness in All God‟s Word. New King James Version. Thomas Neal, Inc. Nashville, Tennessee. Copyright 1983.Bible. Pg. 1688-89.)
Liberal ―theologians‖ first ask rhetorically, just like the serpent in the Garden, ―Now the
serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, ―Has God indeed said, ‗You shall not eat of every tree of the garden‘?‖ (Genesis 3:1), and then they go about attempting to prove by way
of their indefensible, faulty methods of textual criticism that God really did not indeed say, or convey in His Word, precisely what is in fact written in Holy Scripture. Pay close attention to what the Serpent did. He not only questioned whether or not God had actually said something—he twisted the actual command God had in fact given, for God had not commanded that Man not eat ―…of every tree of the garden…,‘ but only not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Then Liberal "theologians" proceed to insert into their contrived developmental theories, which they assert are a reality surrounding the compilation of the texts assembled within the Bible,
Man's motives behind the authorship of the texts within, as they say, Man‘s Sitz im Leben, or cultural circumstances, They assert as reality any situational construct they wish to posit—to dream up—as a reality reflecting any given contemporaneous and colloquial historical social setting as they wishfully decide that they want to define it. They simply concoct a composite ―Community‖ howsoever they wish to define its parameters at any given moment in time in order to facilitate their delusional, manufactured construct of an alternate reality—their Sitz im Leben—to suit their delusional, neo-gnostic, Liberal-socialist agenda.) The liberal ―theologians‖ maintain that man, or certain elite men to be more specific, Sociologically defined as "Master Thinkers," or as Bastiat facetiously called them Supermen, purportedly endowed with greater mental and spiritual capacities, (by what power they do not say,) with a Sociologically described verstehen, (higher knowledge, ‗superhuman‘ insight, i.e. γνώσίς, (gnosis)), men who have embraced the second part of Satan‘s original lie as truth and believe that they are superior beings—who believe that they can ‗be as gods,‘ (“For God
doth know, that in the day ye eat of it, then your eyes shall be opened: and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” (Gen. 3:5, Webster‘s Bible
and direct the re-writing of the Bible and the re-determination of biblical doctrine according to the Liberal‘s undefined construct of a ―Community‘s‖ situational, (i.e. Sitz im Leben), needs just as their contemporaneous counterparts would have—so they assert without evidence—done, so they presume, when the respective autographical biblical texts were first penned—situational needs which change over time as do, according to their delusional redefinition of reality, their morally relative situational ethics which they assert the right to assert in their re-interpretation and even re-writing of the Word of God. Liberal ―theology‖ is the height of arrogance and pride and advances the arguments that underlie the illegitimate justification in the deluded minds of the religion of Liberalism‘s selfproclaimed elite that they are in fact superior to the rest of society. Liberal ―theology‖ is the foundation underlying the Liberal-socialist‘s stereo-typical personality disorder malignant narcissism. Liberal ―theologians‖ literally believe that they can do a better job at writing the Bible than God.
Wellhausen Applied Hegel‟s Developmental Philosophy To Biblical Textual Criticism In An Age Dominated By Darwinist Evolutionary Thought:
"Religion is not, as Hegel declared, a kind of knowing; for it would then be only an incomplete form of philosophy, and the measure of knowledge in each case would be the measure of piety." "Hegel's error was in regarding life as a process of thought, rather than in regarding thought as a process of life." (Systematic Theology
Augustus Strong, D.D., LL D. President and Professor of Biblical Theology in The Rochester Theological Seminary. Judson Press, Valley Forge, PA. Thirty-First Printing. 1976. ISB No. 0-8170-0177-8. Pg.20.)
―Hegel presupposes that the whole of human history is a process through which mankind has been making spiritual and moral progress, it is what human mind has done in the course of its advance to self-knowledge…‖ (McDowell, Pg. 56.) Nota bene hyphenated word ‗selfknowledge.‘ That would be the ―Self‖-idolizing revived gnostic concept.
“W.F. Albright, W.W. Spence Professor of Semitic Languages from 1929-1958 at John Hopkins University and sometime director of the American Schools of Oriental Research in Jerusalem, was, until his death in 1971, considered by many to be the foremost biblical archaeologist in the world. His work has forced many critics to completely reassess their conclusions regarding the history of Israel. About Wellhausen‟s application of Hegel‟s philosophical
theories to the history of Israel, Albright said:
―He tried, by means of Hegelian analogy with pre-Islamic and Islamic Arabia, to build a system for the development of Israel‘s history, religion, and literature which would fit his critical analysis. Wellhausen‘s structure was so brilliant and afforded such a simple, apparently uniform interpretation that it was adopted almost universally by liberal Protestant scholars, and even largely by Catholic and Jewish scholars. There were, of course some exceptions, but in nearly all places where men were thoroughly schooled by learning Hebrew and Greek and absorbing the critical method, they also learned Wellhausenian principles. Unfortunately all of this was developed in the infancy of archaeology, and was of very little value in interpreting history.‖ 6/15” (‗Evidence That Demands a Verdict' by Josh McDowell, Volume II, Pp. 56-57.

“Wright speaking of Albright says that he ―has amassed archaeological fact upon fact in his review of the Bible‘s setting in the world in order to show that
Wellhausen‘s developmental scheme, ultimately drawn from the idealistic philosophy of Hegel, no longer fits the facts as they are now known.‖ 199/45”

The Stones Cry Out:
―…all six of the documentarians‘ presuppositions…‖ ―…must be regarded as invalid. Antisupernaturalism…‖ ―…must be rejected on the grounds that it claims to have absolute truth regarding the existence of God or the extent and nature of His intervention in the natural order of the universe, i.e., either His existence or His divine intervention is ruled out as an impossibility on an a priori basis. Another of these presuppositions (an a priori distrust of Old Testament record) must be rejected since it flies in the face of an accepted cannon of criticism that has stood the test of time, having guided literary and historical scholars since the time of Aristotle. The remaining four presuppositions (evolutionary view of Israel‘s history; priority of source analysis over verifiable methodology; legendary view of patriarchal narratives; and the assumption that there was no writing in Israel during the Mosaic age) have all been soundly refuted by archaeology.‖ („Evidence That Demands a Verdict' by Josh McDowell, Volume II, Pg. 86.

The Religion of Liberalism:
The religion of Liberalism‘s elevation of elite ‗Superman‘ ‗Legislative Leaders,‘ to borrow two descriptions from Frederic Bastiat, characterized within the doctrines of the cult of Liberalism that are incorporated in the writings of the highly subjective ―science‖ of Sociology as ―Master Thinkers,‖ („Developing as Rational Persons: Viewing Our Development in Stages‟ (1996. By Elder, L. with Paul, R. www.criticalthinking.org), is a delusional manifestation of a mental and spiritual disorder among those who consider themselves so superiorly elevated above the rest of the ‗mere mortals‘ in society of malignant narcissism that is nothing less than a reflection in men‘s hearts and minds of the arrogant pride which preceded Lucifer‘s being cast down from Heaven. Just as Christians are transformed more and more into the image of Christ Jesus as they mature in their faith, Liberal-socialists along with followers of all false gods are transformed into the image of their
master. The predominant characteristic of Satan as described in the Word of God is pride and it is pride that is most clearly reflected in Liberal-socialist‘s definitive trait of the delusional mental disorder called malignant narcissism.
―Like child molesters and drug addicts, liberals can‘t be cured of their addiction. They want to run our lives in every way possible.‖ ―If there is a difference between these liberals and child molesters or drug addicts, it is very hard to find. All three will do ANYTHING to satisfy their lusts.‖

Liberalism‘s, or Liberal-Socialism‘s, moral relativism—as opposed to the belief in absolute truth—is the cornerstone of the Lliberal perversions of the concepts of pluralism, diversity, multiculturalism, unity, inclusiveness, and tolerance; which are all deviously united as a counterfeit to the absolute truth incorporated in the Word of God—the Light of the world—in a diabolical rainbow of faulty assertions advanced under an intellectually indefensible banner of ‗Political Correctness.‘
Political Correctness for Idiots:
Today, a major engine for the left‘s insatiable quest for power goes under the strange name of ―political correctness‖—an insidious frontal attack on common sense and conscience through language manipulation. Even the phrase ―political correctness‖ sounds demented. Politics, like all areas of opinion and preference that emanate from our core worldview, is a matter of free choice and personal autonomy in America; nobody can tell you the ―correct‖ opinions to have! And yet, that‘s precisely what ―political correctness‖ attempts to do.‖ (Whistleblower Magazine; Vol. 21, No. 5.
May 2012. ‗Magic Words—The Left‘s Secret Weapon for Transforming Traditional America.‘ By David Kupelian. Pg. 8.)
―…bad or ignoble qualities of human beings…‖ have become ―…disguised and excused with euphamisms: ―Illegal aliens‖ became ―illegal immigrants,‖ and then ―undocumented immigrants,‖ and presto-chango, something bad was magically transformed into something good. Homosexuals became ―gay,‖ abortion advocates became ―pro-choice‖ and atheists became ―brights,‖ each euphemism converting a negative association into a positive one. Today, increasing numbers of people refer to pedophilia as ―intergenerational sex‖ and child molesters as ―minor-attracted persons‖ or MAPs. (In Islam, the popular euphemism for pedophilia is ―child marriage,‖ just as adultery is called ―temporary marriage.‖ Really.)
Of course, Islam has become a major beneficiary of political correctness, reminiscent of what George Orwell called ―Newspeak‖ in his novel ―1984.‖ After 19 Muslim terrorists, acting in the name of Islam, murdered almost 3,000 Americans in a wanton act of war on Sept. 11, 2001, the government and media, to avoid offending Muslims, declared Islam to be a ―religion of peace.‖ The Islamic jihad declared on America was mysteriously referred to by our leaders as a ―war on terror‖ involving an unnamed enemy. But even that awkward, near-meaningless expression was deemed to insensitive toward Islam, so under Obama the euphemizing turned surreal when ―war on terror‖ morphed into ―overseas contingency operations.‖ Likewise, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano came up with a friendly new phrase for massmurder terror attacks. Announcing that she was deliberately avoiding the term ―terrorism‖ in speeches because ―we want to move away from the politics of fear,‖ she adopted the term ―mancaused disasters.‖ So, employing the government‘s official terminology: After experiencing ―man-made disasters,‖ the U.S. has responded with ―overseas contingency operations.‖ Any Questions?‖ (Whistleblower Magazine; Vol. 21, No. 5. May 2012. ‗Magic Words—The Left‘s Secret Weapon for Transforming Traditional America.‘ By David Kupelian. Pg. 8.)
Author William Lind‘s perceptive explanation of political correctness is both chilling and enlightening. He writes in ―The origins of political correctness‖: The totalitarian nature of political correctness is revealed nowhere more clearly than on college campuses, many of which at this point are small ivy covered North Koreas, where the student or faculty member who dares to cross any of the lines set up by the gender feminists or the homosexual-rights activists, or the local black or Hispanic group, or any of the other sainted ―victims‖ groups that PC revolves around, quickly find themselves in judicial trouble. Within the small legal system of the college, they face formal charges—some star-chamber proceeding— and punishment. That is a little look into the future that political correctness intends for the nation as a whole. Indeed, all ideologies are totalitarian because the essence of ideology (I would note that conservatism correctly understood is not an ideology) is to take some philosophy and say on the basis of this philosophy certain things must be true—such as the whole of the history of our culture is the history of the oppression of women. Since reality contradicts that, reality must be forbidden. It must become forbidden to acknowledge the reality of our history. People must be forced to live a lie, and since people are naturally reluctant to live a lie, they naturally use their ears and eyes to look out and say, ―Wait a minute. This isn‘t true. I can see it isn‘t true,‖ the power of the state must be put behind the demand to live a lie. That is why ideology invariably creates a totalitarian state.” (Whistleblower Magazine; Vol. 21, No. 5. May 2012. ‗Magic Words—The Left‘s
Secret Weapon for Transforming Traditional America.‘ By David Kupelian. Pg. 15-16.)
Sociology Vs. Faith:
―Faith is belief in what has not been observed by the senses (see Hebrews 11:1). In order to reason logically, a person must believe in laws of logic. However, laws of logic are immaterial and therefore cannot be observed by the senses. So, belief in laws of logic is a type of faith. Moreover, laws of logic only have rational justification in the Christian faith system.‖ (answering
genesis.org. Logical Fallacies: Bifurcation. By Dr. Lisle, AiG-US, on Sept. 7, 2009. Footnote number 3. Emphasis added.)
Sociologists like "...Robin Williams (1970) …‖ have ―…offered lists of basic values…‖ which include achievement, efficiency, material comfort, nationalism, equality, and the supremacy of science and reason over faith.‖ (Sociology: A Brief Introduction. 8th Edition. By Richard T. Schaefer. McGraw Hill. Copyright 2009. N.Y., N.Y. Emphasis Added.) An assertion such as that of the supremacy of science and reason over faith is audacious and unreasonable and lacks scientific evidence - it amounts to no more than wishful thinking. Such a belief makes idols
out of science and reason and is foundational to modern sociological perspectives and their underlying philosophical arguments which determine a liberal, socialist, secular humanist worldview. „Science‟ and „Reason‟ have become their belief system, their religion.
Sociologists, disillusioned with the supernatural, that is to say, with God, construct, in embracing their faulty philosophical ideologies - their own religion. Theirs is a religion of mysterious insight, referred to by sociologists as verstehen, accessed by their elite 'superhero' leaders through their perversions of 'Science‘ and ‗Reason‘, devoid of faith in God, and is existentialist in nature and hedonistic in essence. It is nothing more than a modern revival of Gnosticism. One need only ask the question: From where does their supposed enigmatic insight, their verstehen, originate? ―B. Faith is a knowledge conditioned by holy affection.—The faith which apprehends God‘s being and working is not opinion or imagination. It is certitude with regard to spiritual realities, upon the testimony of our rational nature and upon the testimony of God. Its only peculiarity as a cognitive act of the reason is that it is conditioned by holy affection. As the science of aesthetics is a product of reason as including a power of recognizing beauty practically inseparable from a love for beauty, and as the science of ethics is a product of reason as including a power of recognizing the morally right practically inseparable from a love for the morally right, so the science of theology is a product of reason, but of reason as including a power of recognizing god which is practically inseparable from a love for God. We here use the term ―reason‖ to signify the minds whole power of knowing. Reason in this sense includes states of the sensibility, so far as they are indispensable to knowledge. We cannot know an orange by the eye alone; to the understanding of it, taste is as necessary as sight. The mathematics of sound cannot give us an understanding of music; we need also a musical ear. Logic alone cannot demonstrate the beauty of a sunset, or of a noble character; love for the beautiful and the right precedes knowledge of the beautiful and the right. Ullman draws attention to the derivation of sapientia, wisdom, from sapere, to taste. So we cannot know God by intellect
alone; the heart must go with the intellect to make knowledge of divine things possible. ―Human things,‖ said Pascal, ―need only to be known, in order to be loved; but divine things must first be loved, in order to be known.‖ ―This [religious] faith of the intellect,‖ said Kant, ―is founded on the assumption of moral tempers.‖ If one were utterly indifferent to moral laws, the philosopher continues, even then religious truths ―would be supported by strong arguments from analogy, but not by such as an obstinate, skeptical heart might overcome.‖
Faith, then, is the highest knowledge, because it is the act of the integral
soul, the insight, not of one eye alone, but of the two eyes of the mind, intellect and love to God.With one eye we can see an object as flat, but, if we wish to see around it and get the stereoptic effect, we must use both eyes. It is not the theologian, but the undevout astronomer, whose science is one-eyed and therefore incomplete. The errors of the rationalist are errors of defective vision. Intellect has been divorced from the heart, that is from a right disposition, right affections, right purpose in life. Intellect says: ―I cannot know God‖: and intellect is right. What intellect says, the Scriptures also says: 1 Cor. 2: 14-- ―the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him; and he cannot know them because they are spiritually judged‖‘ 1 : 21-- ―in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom know not God.‖ The Scripture on the other hand declares that ―by faith we know‖ (Heb. 11: 3). By ―heart‖ the Scripture means simply the governing disposition, or the sensibility + the will; and it intimates that the heart is an organ of knowledge: Ex. 35: 25-- ―the women that were wise hearted‖; Ps. 34: 8-- ―O taste and see that Jehovah is good‖ -- a right taste precedes correct sight: jer.24: 7 -- ―I will give them a heart to know me‖; Mat. 5: 8 -- ―Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God‖; Luke 24: 25 -- ―slow of heart to believe‖; John 7: 17 -- ―If any man willeth to do his will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of God, or whether I speak from myself‖; Eph. 1: 18 -- having the eyes of your heart enlightened, that ye may knoweth not God.‖ ―C. Faith, therefore, can furnish, and only faith can furnish, fit and sufficient material for a scientific theology. --As an operation of man‘s higher rational nature, though distinct from ocular vision or from reasoning, faith is not only a kind, but the highest kind, of knowing. It gives us understanding of realities which to the senses alone are inaccessible, namely, God‘s existence, and some at least of the realities between God and his creation. Phillipi, Glaubenslebre, 1: 50, follows Gerhard in making faith the joint act of intellect and will. Hopkins, Outline Study of Man, 77, 78, speaks not only of ―the aesthetic reason‖ but of ―the moral reason.‖ Murphy, Scientific Bases of Faith, 91, 109, 145, 191—―Faith is the certitude concerning matter in which verification is unattainable.‖ Emerson, Essays, 2: 96--‖Belief consists in accepting the affirmations of the soul--unbelief in rejecting them.‖ Morell, Philos. of Religion, 38, 52, 53, quotes Coleridge: ―Faith consists in the synthesis of the reasons and of the individual will . . . And by virtue of the former (that is, reason), faith must be a light, a form of knowing, a beholding of truth.‖ Faith, then, is not to be pictured as a blind girl clinging to a cross -- faith is not blind--‖ Else the cross may just as well be a crucifix or an image of Gaudama.‖
unbelief,” not blind faith,” is sure to err. And scan his works in vain.” As in conscience we recognize an invisible authority, and know the truth just in
proportion to our willingness to ―do the truth,‖ so in religion only holiness can understand holiness, and only love can understand love (cf. John 3: 21 -- ―he that doeth the truth cometh to the light.‖). If a right state of heart be indispensable to faith and so to the knowledge of God, can there be any ―theologia irregenitorum,‖ or theology of the unregenerate? Yes, we answer; just as the blind man can have a science of optics. The testimony of others gives it claims upon him; the dim light penetrating the obscuring membrane corroborates this testimony. The unregenerate man can know God as power and justice, and can fear him. But this is not a knowledge of God‘s inmost character; it furnishes some material for a defective and ill-proportioned theology; but it does not furnish fit or sufficient material for a correct theology. As, in order to make his science of optics satisfactory and complete, the blind man must have the cataract removed from his eyes by some competent oculist, so, in order to any complete or satisfactory theology; the veil must be taken away from the heart by God himself (cf. 2 Cor. 3: 15,16 -- ―a veil lieth upon their heart, but whosoever it [marg. ‗a man‘] shall turn to the Lord, the veil is taken away‖).‖ (Systematic Theology

Liberalism is a religion; it is a neognostic construct:
Like Satan deceptively suggested in the Garden of Eden, Liberal-socialism‟s neo-gnosticism, the doctrines and tenets of which are laid out in the highly subjective pseudo-science of Sociology, worship their God—Mankind—their God is humanity, so, most appropriately, their religion is rightly identified as "Humanism," but they don't like to permit their terms and concepts to be nailed down; so like the undefinable shape of a moving piece of jello, they continually redefine, re-label, re-brand the concepts within their religious belief system that serve their agenda —an agenda which, if they can get the rest of humanity to believe, eventually leads to their being put in positions of political authority from where they can “properly” direct the “community” that they are gnostically gifted with „great new insight‟ needed by the “community” in order to be led “Forward” unto the next „ Sitz im Leben‟ in the never-ending “evolutionary” development of the “community” towards the glorification of Humankind. (…and all the Liberals said, „Amen!‟)
The One and Only "Concept" within the belief system of a person with a Christian Worldview, that is to say within true Christianity, is Jesus Christ, the eternal Creator, and He allowed Himself to be nailed down firmly, both physically on the Cross and metaphorically in his unambiguous teachings and professions of truth. Jesus explicitly conveyed the message as to just Who He is in Word and deed (evidentiary miracles) that there be no morally relativistic re-defining, re-branding, or re-labeling of precisely Who He is—He is Truth, absolute Truth—He came in the flesh, was crucified for our sin and on the third day rose again in fulfillment of Scriptural prophecy. Jesus is the Lord God, Creator of all that is and He shall return.
Satan‘s assertion in the Garden of Eden that Man might ―be as God‖ has continued to be disseminated as a reality in neo-gnostic philosophy/religious doctrine that is foundational to a Liberal-socialist worldview.

"Let Us Now Try Liberty
God has given to men all that is necessary for them to accomplish their destinies. He has provided a social form as well as a human form. And these social organs of persons are so constituted that they will develop themselves harmoniously in the clean air of liberty. Away, then with quacks and organizers! Away with their rings, chains, hooks, and pincers! Away with their artificial systems! Away with the whims of governmental administrators, their socialized projects, their centralization, their tariffs, their government schools, their state religions, their free credit, their bank monopolies, their regulations, their restrictions, their equalization by
taxation, and their pious moralizations!
And now that the legislators and do-gooders have so futilely inflicted so many systems upon society, may they finally end where they should have begun: May they reject all systems, and try liberty: for
liberty is an acknowledgement of faith in God and His works."(„The Law.‟ Pg. 76. Emphasis added.)
Enigmatic Gnostic insight equates to Sociology‘s verstehen and the asserted superior "Master Thinker" quality of the Liberal-socialist concept of a superhuman. The deification of ‗Science‘ and ‗Reason‘ by modern sociologists is nothing less than idolatry. There is a Liberal apostasy taking place in America today which has blinded many
nominal Christians into accommodating the godless religion of Neo-gnostic, "Progressive," Liberal-socialists. The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)‘s agenda, as an example of a one-time doctrinally sound Christian Church now apostate in its embracing of Liberal theology, of justifying a ―…new insight…‖ (The Book of Confessions. Pg. xxxv) or ―…a new and fresh word from the Lord.‖ (The Book of Confessions. Pg. xix) to embrace the sin of homosexuality and call it unity resembles the effort of early Gnostic cults which called themselves ‗Christian‘ but used their demonically inspired aberrant theology to justify licentious behavior. ―Since they believed that salvation depended solely upon the knowledge of one‘s ‗spiritual‘ nature, some Gnostics indulged in extremely licentious behaviour.‖ (Eerdmans‟ Handbook To The History Of Christianity ; by John Briggs,
Dr. Robert D. Linder, and David Wright. © 1977, Lion Publishing, Berkhamsted, Herts, England. Pg.98.)
―The Gnostics were followers of a variety of religious movements in the early Christian centuries which stressed that people could be saved through a secret knowledge (γνώσίς in the Greek.)‖ (Eerdmans‟ Handbook To The History Of Christianity ; by John Briggs, Dr. Robert D. Linder, and David Wright. © 1977, Lion Publishing, Berkhamsted, Herts, England. Pg.98.) The „secret knowledge‟ of the Gnostics equates to the “…great new insight…” (The Book of Confessions. Pg.xiii) and the “…new and fresh word from the Lord.” (The Book of Confessions. Pg.xix) postulated as existant in The Book Of Confessions of the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. as well as Sociology's purported verstehen . Liberals have rejected the authority of the Word of God in favor of their own contemporaneous interpretation based upon the presumption that their "Master Thinker" "superheroes" who they maintain are supernaturally gifted with some enigmatic 'great new insight‘ described by sociologists as verstehen, that the masses of the rest of we mere mortals do not possess.
―From about the beginning of the first century B.C., rationalism enters upon a long decline in the Greek world. There is evidence of a spreading disillusionment with philosophy as an avenue to apprehension of the truth, combined with a growing demand for authority, for a revelation. Along with this comes a new concern for the soul, and the truth that is sought is the truth that will enable the soul to attain its high destiny. Since the time of Plato and even earlier, many Greeks had come to think of the soul as something distinct from the body, belonging to a higher order of existence, endowed with powers of reason and insight which are impaired and held in check by the association with the body. In the later Hellenistic times, there is a growing conviction that the soul is a divine essence which has somehow fallen into an evil condition; as this belief becomes widely dominant, it has profound effects on philosophy and religion, determining the objectives of both. The interest in ethics, which had been the chief concern of Zeno and Epicurus and indeed of all the schools, is subordinated to the quest for the salvation of the soul, and this salvation is conceived in terms of the freeing of the soul from the bondage of the body and its ascent to the realm of pure divine being, its true home.‖ (The Interpreter‟s Bible
Dictionary. Vol. E-J; Pg. 498-499).
―The Gnostic systems which constituted a great danger to Christianity throughout the second century belong within this general climate of religious thought; in another sense, the same might be said of Catholic Christianity as well, though the differences are radical. The Christian (heretical) Gnostics turned Christ into a mythological figure, making him one of the emanations which they conceived as mediators between the supreme God, essentially
incapable of contact with the material universe, and the human soul, essentially one with the divine, but imprisoned in a material body as the consequence of some accident within the divine pleroma.‖ (The Interpreter‟s Bible Dictionary. Vol. E-J; Pg. 499.) ―All the theosophies of these manifold schools may be called ―gnostic‖ in the sense that they teach that knowledge (γνώσίς)—i.e. knowledge of the revealed doctrine of God, World, and Soul—is itself salvation. The materials employed in the construction are drawn from many quarters; they exhibit again the syncretism which characterizes all the religious thought and activity of the period. Oriental elements from various sources—Iranian, Egyptian, Syrian, Babylonian—are inextricably mingled with the Greek substratum of religious thought, which is itself compounded of Platonic idealism, shamanistic notions of the soul, and some tenets of the Stoic philosophy. Astrology usually enters largely into the mixture. The redemption of the soul is pictured in terms of an ascent through the spheres, guarded as they are by the mighty divinities enthroned in—rather, embodied in—the planets. In a number of the systems—most of them hardly deserve such a name—the planet-divinities are hostile powers who seek to resist the ascent of the soul; the true deity is high above them all, wholly transcendental, invisible, unknowable except insofar as he chooses to make himself known. It is sometimes taught that the soul cannot escape from this material world except through the intervention of a redeemer who descends through the spheres and returns victorious over the planets who control them—―the world Rulers of this present darkness‖ (Eph. 6:12).‖ (The Interpreter‟s Bible Dictionary. Vol. E-J; Pg.
―The later New Testament literature, and at least one of the Apostolic Fathers, strongly combat conceptions of Christ which it is evident must have been widely prevalent, especially in Asia Minor, in the opening years of the second century. These views denied His real humanity and His actual death. He had not come “in the flesh,” but in ghost-like, Docetic appearance. These opinions have sometimes been regarded as the beginnings of Gnosticism. It is true that this Docetic conception of Christ was a feature of much Gnostic teaching. It is more probable, however, that these early teachings were more largely based on an attempt to explain a seeming contradiction between the Jesus of history and the Christ of faith, than on purely Gnostic speculations. That earthly life of humiliation was so contrasted with His pre-existent and postexistent glory, that the simplest solution of the Christological problem may well have seemed to some the denial of the reality of His earthly life altogether. Christ did, indeed, appear. He taught His disciples; but all the time as a heavenly being, not one of flesh and blood. Gnosticism, properly speaking, was something much more far-reaching. The height of its influence was from about 135 to 160, though it continued a force long after the latter date. It threatened to overwhelm the historic Christian faith, and by so doing brought upon the Christian Church its gravest crisis since the Pauline battle for freedom from law. Its spread and consequent peril were made possible by the relatively weakly organized, and doctrinally undefined state of the church at its beginning. The church overcame the danger; and in so doing developed a closely knit organization and a clearly defined creed, which contrasted with the more spontaneous and charismatic nature of primitive Christianity. Gnosticism professed to be based on ―knowledge‖ (γνώσίς), but not as that word is now commonly understood. Its knowledge was always a mystical, supernatural wisdom, by which the initiates were brought to a true understanding of the universe, and were saved from this evil world of matter. It had a fundamental doctrine of salvation. In these respects it was akin to the
mystery religions. Its most prominent characteristic, however, was its syncretism. It took unto itself many elements from many sources, and assumed many forms. It is, therefore, impossible to speak of a single type of Gnosticism. It was a prevailingly mystical, magical, or philosophical according to the dominant admixture in its syncretism. Gnosticism was preChristian in its origin, and was in existence before Christianity came into the world. There were Jewish and heathen types. It is represented in the Hermetic literature of Egypt. It had astral elements which may be traced back to Babylonian religious conceptions, a dualistic view of the universe, Persian in origin, and a doctrine of emanations from God in the ―pleroma‖ or realm of spirit, which was probably Egyptian. Perhaps its most fundamental conception, the wholly evil character of the phenomenal world, was due to a combination of the Platonic theory of the contrast between the real spiritual sphere of ―ideas,‖ and this visible world of phenomena, interpreted in terms of Persian dualism -- the one good and that to which man strives to return, the other wholly bad and the place of his imprisonment. The world of matter is evil. Its creator and ruler is not, therefore, the high, good God, but an inferior and imperfect being, the demiurge. Man, to be saved, must be freed from this bondage to the visible world, and its rulers, the planetary spirits,; and the means of his freedom is “knowledge” (γνώσίς), a mystical, spiritual enlightenment for the initiated which brings him into communion with the true realm of spiritual realities. ―Strongly syncretistic already, Gnosticism found much in Christianity which it could use. In particular, the figure of Christ was especially adapted to give a definite and concrete center to its theory of a higher saving knowledge. He was the revealer of the hitherto unknown high and allperfect god to men. By that illumination all ―spiritual‖ men, who were capable of receiving it, would be led back to the realm of the good God. Since the material world is evil, Christ could not have had a real incarnation, and the Gnostics explained His appearance either as Docetic and ghostly, or as a temporary indwelling of the man Jesus, or as an apparent birth from a virgin mother without partaking of material nature. The God of the Old Testament, as the creator of this visible world, cannot be the high God whom Christ revealed, but the inferior demiurge. That all Christians did not posses the saving ―knowledge,‖ the Gnostics explained by holding it to be a secret teaching imparted by the Apostles to their more intimate disciples, a speaking ―wisdom among the perfect‖ It is true that while Paul was in no sense a Gnostic, there were many things in Paul‘s teachings of which Gnostics availed themselves. His sharp contrast between flesh and spirit; his conception of Christ as victor over those ―principalities and powers‖ which are the ―world rulers of this darkness,‖ and his thought of Christ as the Man from Heaven, were all ideas which the Gnostics could employ. Paul was always to them the chief Apostle.‖ (A History of the
Christian Church. By Williston Walker. Third Edition. Charles Scribner and Sons. N.Y., N.Y. Copyright 1970. Pp. 52-53.)
―The Gnostic systems which constituted a great danger to Christianity throughout the second century belong within this general climate of religious thought; in another sense, the same might be said of Catholic Christianity as well, though the differences are radical.

(The Interpreter‟s Bible Dictionary. Vol. E-J; Pg. 499.)
―Gnosticism was divided into many sects and presented a great variety of forms. In all of them the high, good God is the head of the spiritual world of light, often called the ―pleroma.‖ From that world fragments have become imprisoned in this visible world of darkness and evil. In later Gnosticism this fallen element from the pleroma is represented as the lowest of a series of aeons, or spiritual beings, emanating from the high God. To rescue this fallen portion, the seeds of light in the visible world, Christ came, bringing the true ―knowledge.‖ By His teaching those capable of receiving it are restored to the pleroma. They are at best few. Most Gnostics divided mankind into ―spiritual,‖ capable of salvation, and ―material‖ who could not receive the message. Later Gnosticism, especially the school of Valentinus, taught a threefold division, ―spiritual,‖ who alone could attain ―knowledge‖; ―psychical,‖ capable of faith, and of a certain degree of salvation; and ―material,‖ who were hopeless.‖ (A History of the Christian Church. By
Williston Walker. Third Edition. Charles Scribner and Sons. N.Y., N.Y. Copyright 1970. Pg. 53.)
―Christian tradition represented the founder of Christian Gnosticism to be Simon Magnus, but of his real relations to it little is known. More clearly defined leaders are Satornilus of Antioch, who labored before 150; Basilides, who taught in Alexandria about 130; and, above all, Valentinus, who was active in Rome from about 135 to 165, and who must be regarded as one of the most gifted thinkers of the age.‖ (A History of the Christian Church. By Williston Walker.
Third Edition. Charles Scribner and Sons. N.Y., N.Y. Copyright 1970. Pg. 53.)
―While Basilides (130) and Valentines (150), the Gnostics, both quote from the fourth gospel, they do not dispute its genuineness or suggest that it was of recent origin.‖ (Systematic
Theology. Augustus Strong. Pg. 160.)
“Gnosticism was an immense peril for the church. It cut out the historic foundations of Christianity. Its God is not the God of the Old Testament, which is the work of an inferior or even evil being. Its Christ had no real incarnation, death, or resurrection. Its salvation is for the few capable of spiritual enlightenment. The peril was the greater because Gnosticism was represented by some of the keenest minds in the church of the second century.‖ (A History of the Christian Church. Third Edition. By Williston Walker.

„Progressive,‟ Liberal-Socialist, „Superhero,‟ „Legislative Leader,‟‟Master Thinkers‟:
In the article „Developing as Rational Persons: Viewing Our Development in Stages‟ (1996. By Elder, L. with Paul, R. www.criticalthinking.org, the authors describe ‗The Inner Logic of their purportedly intellectually superior ―Master Thinker‖ as an inner logic wherein, ―Having formed their identities in terms of reasonability, not in terms of any particular belief or belief system, they are able to shift beliefs without trauma or self-doubt.‖ This statement epitomizes the syncretistic nature of the current sociological philosophical ideology which is the philosophical foundation of a Liberal-socialist worldview and its refutation of absolute truth in favor of the sliding-scale continuum of moral relativism. They preposterously postulate that a person who is able to ‗shift beliefs‘ is superior to one firmly established in their faith in Christ Jesus!
In the sub-heading within the article “We Reach the Fifth Stage When We Have Established Good Habits of Thought Across the Domains of Our Lives” is listed the stage the article‘s authors call “The Advanced Thinker Stage.” The authors proceed to equate the adoption of their suggestions for rational thinking and the embracing of their philosophical ideology underlying the development they assert is necessary in a person‘s thinking—that is to
say the re-aligning of one‘s own values with their more manipulative and relative morality—with achieving a state of ―…rational living….‖ suggesting that those who embrace this system of theology shall then find ―…that it is no longer a strain to aspire to reasonability.‖ thereby implying that an individual‘s systematic approach to thinking prior to embracing the author‘s suggestions for developing one‘s cognitive processes was necessarily unreasonable! A preposterous and presumptuous non-sequitor! In the same manner of disingenuously setting up a straw man assertion as fact, the authors maintain that in achieving stage five, the ―Advanced Thinker‖ stage, one ―…no longer…‖ finds ―…it difficult to admit when…‖ they ―…are wrong….‖ presupposing that a proselyte of his assertions, before having embraced them as truth, found it difficult to admit when he was wrong! The authors propose that at stage five ―We now have deep insight…‖ , (i.e. γνώσίς) or as sociologists would identify it, verstehen), ―…into the fact that our development…‖, (that is to say increasing adoption of a pluralistic philosophical ideology as a new value system based on a neo-gnostic enigmatic insight also known by sociologists terminology of verstehen), ―…is directly dependent on the extent to which we are successful at decreasing the role of egocentric thinking in our daily lives.‖ The assertion that people necessarily think egocentrically before adopting the proposed ideology is preposterous and antithetical to the reality that those in Christ Jesus think 'Christo-centrically,' that is to say we pray that we ourselves diminish and Christ Jesus increase in every aspect of our being. The authors maintain that ―At the advanced stage,…― one is ―…now skilled at monitoring the role in thinking in concepts, assumptions, inferences, implications, points of view, questions purposes, and information.‖ This statement pre-supposes that said adherents to the author's beliefs concerning the rational development of thinking are morally qualified to monitor their own roles in thinking concepts, assumptions, inferences, et cetera, etc..., but without a Moral Lawgiver the proponents of this nonsensical "Master Thinker" argument would extend to each and every would-be 'Master Thinker' the authority to determine just what is or is not moral. Interesting that in introducing stage six, the ―Master Thinker‖ stage, the authors describe the current era as ―this age of irrationality.‖ In all recorded human history no other era can be held-up as any more or less rational than the present. The author proceeds to describe the ―Master Thinker‖ stage as a useful concept ―…, for it sets out what we are striving for…‖ presupposing that the reader has thus far bought into the erroneous ideology and faulty arguments in support of the liberal worldview underlying their proposed stages of development. The authors lengthily describe their construct of a ―Master Thinker‖: ―Master thinkers have not only a high degree of knowledge of thinking, but a high degree of practical insight as well.‖ ―Master thinkers have deep insights into the systematic internalization of critical thinking into their habits.‖ ―Their knowledge of the qualities of their thinking is outstanding.‖ The authors elaborate on the list of qualities of their purported ‗Master Thinker‘ in a numbered list with headings which read: ―… 1) conscious of the ‗workings‘ of their minds; 2)
highly integrated; 3) powerful; 4) logical; 5) far-sighted; 6) deep; 7) self-correcting; and 8) emancipated.‖, but their insupportable assertions listed, when reflected upon and subjected to critical analysis, are ridiculous fabrications of their imagination at best. The authors presume that their construct of idealized ―Master Thinkers‖ would ―…achieve a high level of success in bringing their thoughts, emotions, and actions in line with their espoused ideals, …‖ and that it would follow that, because of said congruency, ―…they would function with a high level of fulfillment and sense of well-being. One might argue that, were the ideals espoused by said 'Master Thinkers' or 'superheroes' to be erroneous then the congruency to said error would too manifest itself in the thought, emotions, and actions of the thinkers and prove them not masters at all for it is written ―He who sins is a slave to sin.‖ That being the case it is unlikely that erroneous ideals embraced which enslave would not result in an ‘…high level of fulfillment and sense of wellbeing.‖ for ―…the wages of sin is death.‖ (i.e. separation from God.) What of their individually ‗espoused ideals‘ anyways? The proposed stages of development explicitly aim to impart a belief system in which adherents are free to ‗shift‘ to whatever newly constructed ideals they themselves might choose to espouse at any given moment in time. This concept of ―Master Thinker‖ too is not new. Frederic Bastiat recognized the concept and labeled it the 'Superhuman Idea.' The Neo-Gnostic, "Progressive," Liberal-socialist Democrat‘s rejection and condemnation of 'faith in God and His works‘ and replacement of God, from Whom ‗We the People‘ receive our inalienable rights, with their ludicrous Big Bang Theory of creation, (Just where did the supposed material that went ‗Bang!‘ come from?), and insupportable Theory of Evolution threaten American liberty for ‗liberty is an acknowledgement of faith in God and His works.‘ Efforts persist by Neo-gnostic, Liberal-socialist Democrats, that is to say Socialists, to delete the word ‗Creator‘ from our Constitution.
―Not to have a correct political point of view is like having no soul.‖ Wow, really? No soul? Isn‘t that a little extreme? Yes, but then, those are the words of Mao Zedong, the Chinese communist leader with the extreme distinction of having caused more deaths than any person in human history—50 to 70 million, more than Stalin and Hitler combined. Mao was a rabid believer in ―political correctness.‖ In fact, he wrote the book. Mao‘s 1967 book—officially titled ―Mao Zedong on People‘s War‖ (though better known as Mao‘s ―Little Red Book‖)—became the ultimate authority for political correctness during the 1960‘s. Carried around by millions of Chinese during the ‗Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution‖ of 1968, the small, red-plastic-bound book consisted of quotes from Mao‘s various writings,….‖ (Whistleblower Magazine; Vol. 21, No. 5.

for Transforming Traditional America.‘ By David Kupelian. Pg. 16.)
“The Correct Way
Like all sociopathic tyrants, Mao had a big task before him: How do you manipulate and condition hundreds of millions of people into thinking the exact same way—the ―correct‖ way? His ―Little Red Book‖ was the instruction manual China‘s people were required to follow. But what made that nation‘s uniquely bloody ―cultural revolution‖ work was not the natural logic and virtue of Mao‘s words—for they had none—but the people‘s fear and dread of the consequences of failing to embrace them. Contrast Mao‘s book, reportedly the second most widely read book in history (or at least the most widely carried), with
the Bible—the most widely read book in history. Both books point to a supposedly ―correct‖ way of being, thinking, speaking and living. But unlike Marxism and other man-made philosophies and ideologies that must be superimposed on us from outside and thereby violate our minds and souls, the Bible‘s fundamental principles do not conflict with human nature. Indeed, the Bible‘s doctrines and values were directly inspired by the same Author of mankind. Thus, the Bible doesn‘t superimpose a belief system on top of reality—it awakens seeking souls to everpresent, unchanging moral law.”

―Because this is an age of religious pluralism and syncretism (that is, a diluting of truth for the sake of unity), Christ‘s lordship is deemed irrelevant by many religious groups that believe one religion is as good as another. His preeminence is denied by others that place the Christian stamp upon a fusion of beliefs from several religions. Usually hailed as an advance beyond apostolic Christianity, this blend promises self-fulfillment and freedom without surrender to Christ.‖ (The Spirit Filled Bible.

―‗Pluralism is inadmissible whenever it is at variance with what God has revealed in His Word.19.‘‖ ―It is quite obvious that fragments of truth are to be found in the prophetic
repositories of pluralism. Those whom the apostle called to account for preaching ‗another gospel‘ are not said to completely lack truth. But their message is adulterated and laced with errors, violating the essential criterion of the Word concerning the glorious person and allsufficiency of the finished redemption of Christ (1 Timothy 3:16; 1 John 2: 1,2), The false gospels of non-Christian religions, in fact, frequently add doctrines that are as dangerous as what they omit and may well turn the hearer‘s hearts against Christian truth. ‗The challenge of pluralism, therefore, is not to compound this mixture of truth with untruth in the gospels of pluralism but to displace the perverted gospel of the world with the pure gospel revealed from heaven by the Spirit of God in the Person of Christ.‘20.‖ (Demons In the World Today.

“People who feel that all religions are good and who are unable to „discern spirits‟ (1 Corinthians 12:10) are ready prospects for demonic deception.” (Demons in the World Today. A
Study of Occultism in the Light of God's Word. By: Merrill F. Unger. Th. D., Ph. D. copyright 1971. Pg.155.)
"The danger of delusion increases in these last days as demonic activity accelerates and serious study of God‘s Word wanes. It is a patent fact that sound Bible teaching often is lacking in circles that highlight miracles and healings and gifts of the Spirit. Sometimes the so-called ‗distinctive truths‘ are mere doctrinal hobbies and perversions of the Word of God. When these focus on anything other than Jesus Christ and the full scriptural revelation, counterfeit powers of demons may infiltrate lives. This warning is desperately needed by God‘s born-again people (1 John 4:1). Present-day Christians must recognize that the Bible, rightly understood and implicitly obeyed, is the only sure protection against demonic delusion and despoilment. Evil powers can accomplish their deceptions only when the Word of God is ignored or disdained—and many Christians are susceptible to demonic influence today because they have ignored God‘s revelation in his Word. The Bible is impregnable armor for the Christian—when he lives in it!‖ (Merrill F. Unger, Th.

―Although some people regard the pursuit of doctrinal accuracy as an unspiritual intellectualism, sound doctrine is actually very important to sound spirituality. Christian doctrine teaches us about God, His purposes and will for our lives, what we are like spiritually apart from God‘s grace, how God‘s grace changes us; in short, everything we need to know in order to pursue true spirituality (Rom. 6:17-18; 1 Tim. 1:5, 10; 2 Tim. 3:16-17). Doctrine provides external, objective controls for our inward, subjective experiences so that we may discern genuine spirituality from fraudulent, artificial, or even demonic spirituality (Col. 2:22-23; 1 John 4:1-3). In pursuing an accurate understanding of Christian doctrine, we are fulfilling one aspect of God‘s greatest commandment—that we love God with all our minds (Matt. 22:37). This commandment surely implies that we should take great care and make every effort to conform our beliefs and convictions to the truth (cf. Rom. 12:2)—and this means doctrine.‖ (Bowman, Robert M., Jr. “A Biblical
Guide To Orthodoxy and Heresy (Part One: The Case For Doctrinal Discernment).” Christian Research Institute Statement DO080.)
―The Bible clearly teaches that the end times will be characterized by a strong spiritual delusion that blinds many from the true gospel and also leads those who have believed into apostasy.‖ (Another Jesus: The Ecumenical Christ and the New

Liberal-socialism is nothing more than revived Gnosticism or neo-gnosticism. “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” (King James Bible "Authorized Version", Pure Cambridge Edition.) The highly subjective, so-called ―science‖ of Sociology codifies many of the doctrines and tenets of the religious/philosophical/ideology/comprehensive worldview of Liberal-Socialism, or Liberalism, which has a Secular-humanist branch and a Theistic-evolutionary branch which also pridefully elevates the self. The Secular-humanist branch maintains that everything that exists resulted long ago when nothing—for nothing existed—went ―Bang!‖ and Voila!—everything that is came into existence. Secular-humanism is solipsistic on its surface. Theistic-evolution is far more deceitful for it permits Liberal-socialists to claim to be Christian while they simultaneously reject God‘s written Word‘s creation narrative. The majority of people in America today believe in the indefensible hundreds of millions of years assertions as opposed to the biblical account of creation.
The pressing need for Liberalism to reject Jesus Christ as Creator is why Mr. Obama found it necessary to again and again deliberately omit the word 'Creator' from his quotes from our nation's founding documents. The one thing that unites Liberal-socialists and Muslims is their determination to deny that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator, the Lord Jesus Christ, with certain unalienable rights including the right to life, (all men would of course include unborn babies,) and the right to liberty, (not to be confused with hedonistic, irresponsible licentiousness.). Now many Americans malign the precious Liberty and Judicial Justice that is nowhere else personified in history than on the Cross at Cavalry with their rejection of the Truth and embracing of cleverly conceived Liberal-socialist creation fairy tales. Americans once pledged ‗In God we trust,‘ and proclaimed their county to be ‗One nation under God.‘
Fair and Balanced:
Thinking Republicans need to understand how their party‘s "Balanced and Fair" philosophical mantra is, in truth, an infiltration into their worldview—their mindset—by means of Hegelian synthesis, synthesis of truth with untruth, a thesis with an antithesis, that only leads to compromise and more ‗Balanced and Fair‘ accommodation of the political/societal demands of the delusional Liberal-socialists. The bastardized ‗Balanced and Fair‘ concept presently advanced by so-called Conservative elements within the American political landscape is a perversion of true balance and fairness.
The perversion of the concept of tolerance as somehow being ‗Balanced and Fair‘ is how the so-called "Christian" Conservative Right has been moved more and more into
accommodating the Liberal-socialist Left in a most compromising—most imbalanced and unfair—manner over the years.
The current profession of being ‗Balanced and Fair‘ by so-called Christian Conservatives on the Right is simply a manifestation of their having embraced the Liberal Left‘s moral relativism—it is a subtle Republican re-branding of the perverted Liberal-socialist‘s re-definition of the concept of tolerance which is anything but tolerant. Accordingly, everything is to be tolerated except a Christian worldview and its application to the ongoing, constantly synthesizing dialogue—read Hegelian accommodation.
The morality—once based upon biblical standards of righteousness—underlying the stance of the one-time Conservative, some-time Christian Republican Right, on social issues across the board has been "relative-ized" by conformity to—by way of Hegelian synthesis—the Liberal-socialist perversions of concepts that they have imaginatively and without any legitimate authority to do so re-defined such as pluralism, "political correctness," diversity, tolerance, ―alternative lifestyles,‖ ―same-sex unions,‖ ―love,‖ ―justice,‖ ―freedom,‖ ―cohabitation,‖ ―entitlement,‖ ―Islamophobe,‖ and the list continues to grow like weeds.
Liberalism is a most convenient religion. In the cult of Liberalism, its adherents may claim that a word means whatsoever it is that they wish the word to mean. Such solipsistic employment of imagination in constructing philosophical or political arguments by way of first re-defining terms within an indefensible framework of a non-existent, false reality—a reality so to defined without regard for fact—facilitates the Liberal-socialist's construction of irrational arguments based upon terms created to define or re-define reality as they so choose. Liberalism at its very core is delusional.
The religion of Liberalism and its political and philosophical arm of Liberal-socialism are the definition of hypocrisy for while waiving its profane banner of ―Political Correctness‖ while shouting out, ―Inclusiveness!‖ over an indefinable composite ―community,‖ it categorically and vehemently rejects the concept of inclusiveness when considering any other party that happens to hold a biblical worldview, and contrary to their profession of advocating tolerance, will not tolerate the introduction of biblically foundational reason into an ongoing dialogue pertaining to any issue—they will not permit the facts to get in the way of their delusionally manufactured construct of a ―Community.‖
"America’s elites have been thoroughly infected. They seem now almost entirely enthralled by forces hostile to the wise moderation of the American founding and the reverence for God’s authority that is its strong foundation. In service to that hostility they seek quite literally to demoralize the American people." (Dr. Alan Keyes. „Why America‟s Elite Hate the American Way.‟
"WHITE LIBERALS ARE THE MOST RACIST PEOPLE THERE ARE, BECAUSE THEY PUT BLACKS IN A BOX AND INSIST THAT THEY THINK ONE WAY—AND IF THEY DON'T, THEY ATTACK THEM AS ILLEGITIMATE, ALL THE WHILE DENYING THAT THEIR POLICIES DESTROY BLACKS."

The pervasive infection of Secular-humanist moral relativity throughout both major political parties and all of Western, Judeo-Christian culture is well documented, but the spiritually blind cannot see.
The religion of Liberalism‘s Frankenstein-like monstrosity—it‘s enigmatic ―community‖ which nobody dares define—Is nothing less than a demonically inspired morally relativistic composition of a multitude of ideologies that is a collective counterfeit to the Body of Christ and doctrinally sound Christian unity.
‗How could this have occurred?‘ One might ask. Because one does not have the protection of the Holy Spirit from being deluded by the Deceiver if he has not been spiritually born from above. The un-regenerate are open to deception by the Evil One and the vast majority of so-called ―Christian‖ churches in America do not preach the unadulterated Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ in whom Believers receive the Holy Pneuma, the Comforter, when they are spiritually born from above.
The vast majority of once Christian Republicans and a great many once doctrinally sound Christian denominations that are now apostate have been slowly compromised by Hegelian synthesis—the original modus operandi of Satan in the Garden of Eden—into accommodating the religion of Liberalism‘s myriad perverted ideological concepts that are nothing less than religious doctrines and tenets under the banner of ―Political Correctness.‖
The oft expressed internalized need of the so-called ―Christian,‖ so-called ―conservative‖ Right to demonstrate themselves as ―Balanced and Fair‖ that is the mantra of Fox News is nothing less than a pathetic conciliatory confirmation; a commendation and salutation of the Liberal-socialist‘s perversions of concepts such as ―inclusion,‖ ―pluralism,‖ ―multiculturalism,‖ ―diversity,‖ ―unity,‖ etc…, etc…, which are collectively—if not ‗collective-istly‘—organized under a metaphorical and delusional ideological banner of ―Political Correctness‖ over, so it is maintained by adherents to the religion of Liberalism, the non-existent and professedly profane construct of Liberal-socialism‘s purported ―Community‖—an asserted composite body of undefinable elements that includes and tolerates virtually any and every ideology imaginable as long as said ideology denies absolute Truth—in a collaborative attempt to defend the religion of Liberalism‘s indefensible corruption of the concept of tolerance.
It is a preposterous lie that there exists any definitive entity, the Liberals perversion of the meaning of ―community,‖ other than what they themselves choose to re-define within their moving parameters of the continua of moral relativity as the needs of any given situation dictate.
Liberal-socialism is Rebellious, Pseudointellectual, Delusional and Tyrannical:
Purportedly gnostically gifted individuals within the Liberal‘s professedly composite, unholy union of endless disparate groups within society that are claimed to be a consolidated, or at the very least loosely connected ―Community‖ are asserted as a reality by Liberal dogma and codified in the highly subjective ―science‖ of Sociology as being supernaturally endowed with the right and duty to tell the rest of society precisely what it is that they want, and to accept the ―responsibility‖ for seeing to it that the rest of society gets just what it is that they, the supernaturally gifted—as Bastiat would say, ‗Supermen‘ or ‗Legislative Leaders,‘ or in Sociological terms, those intellectually enlightened or endowed with an enigmatic ―verstehen,‖ or in other sociological circles referred to as ―Master Thinkers,‖ or in political circles ‗Community Organizers,‘ have decided is, according to their purported ―superior‖ insight or wisdom, or ‗higher knowledge,‘ what the rest of society needs.
Then Liberal-socialist self-proclaimed ‗Community Organizers‘ typically proceed to move their socially morally acceptable scale‘s parameters to approve and disapprove of whatsoever behavior lends itself to their successfully achieving the consolidation of their asserted moral authority, a consolidation of political authority over the rest of society. Then they
make laws to enforce their morality du jour in order to more deeply entrench their illegitimate authority over the rest of society.
“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.” ~ William Pitt,
God warns us of the ‗empty deceit‘ of the cult of Liberalism in His Word where it is written, “Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.” (Colossians 2:8.)
The religion of Liberalism‘s Frankenstein-like monstrosity—it‘s enigmatic ―community‖ which nobody dares define for to define it would be to acknowledge the inaccuracy of its claims
of inclusiveness, and in fact demonstrate that it is anything but ―inclusive,‖ is nothing less than a demonically inspired, morally relativistic composition of a multitude of ideologies that is a collective counterfeit—a satanic counterfeit—to the Body of Christ and true, biblically sound Christian unity.
‗How could this have occurred?‘ One might ask—because one does not have the protection of the Holy Spirit from being deceived by the Deceiver if one has not been spiritually born from above. The un-regenerate are open to deception by the Evil One, and the vast majority of so-called ―Christian‖ churches in America do not preach the unadulterated Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ in whom Believers receive the Holy Pneuma , the Comforter, when they are spiritually born from above and become Children of God. Everyone is God‘s creation; only those who have been spiritually re-born are God‘s Children.
The vast majority of once Christian Republicans and a great many once doctrinally sound Christian denominations that are now apostate have been slowly compromised by Hegelian synthesis—the original modus operandi of Satan in the Garden of Eden—into accommodating the religion of Liberalism‘s myriad perverted ideological concepts that are nothing less than religious doctrines and tenets under the profane banner of ―Political Correctness.‖
The Encyclopedia Britannica summarizes Hegel‟s philosophy:
‗Hegel presupposes that the whole of human history is a process through which mankind has been making spiritual and moral progress, it is what human mind has done in the course of its advance to self-knowledge…" The spirit of this age is the spirit of the anti-christ, it is nothing less than revived Gnosticism.
Adherents to the Liberal-socialist religion of Liberalism call it the 'Zeitgeist.' Like other terms that they aim to obscure the actual meaning of, the Liberals use a nebulous German term most appropriately for all Socialism is, at the end of the day, National Socialism.
The morally erosive compromising that occurs when a party standing on biblically sound principles—as the Republican Party may once be said to have stood—engages in dialogue with a party holding an alternative worldview, a worldview based upon anything else but the unadulterated, absolute Truth written in the Word of God, and allows for the application of the Hegelian Dialectic to influence the direction in which the dialogue proceeds is counterproductive—even destructive.
The Christian mandate is not to synthesize the Truth with a lie in debate with those who worship at the altar of the religion of Liberalism‘s Secular-humanist, so-called ―Progressive,‖ Socialist, so-called ―Democratic,‖ so-called ―modern,‖ so-called ―enlightened,‖ ‗Self,‘ but to refute the lies of the faulty worldviews constructed upon indefensible, unbiblical ideologies with the power and authority of the Word of God.
The “vulgar” to whom the griot refers would of course be to the griot all those mere mortals not endowed with whatever enigmatic higher power, gnostic illumination, or verstehen it is that he and his lineage believe they possess and demand that the rest of society acknowledges as the justification for their authority to dictate the history and the morality of what transpired in the “history” they dictate. The griots embraced and still embrace the sociological concept of verstehen, a gnostic concept of superior enlightenment which leads proponents of its existence into a narcissistic elitist personality disorder wherein they create a delusional replacement for reality in which they are enigmatically gifted with higher intellectual powers, an illuminated mind and spirit, a superior knowledge than of the rest of society. Frederic Bastiat addressed the personality disorder as ‘The Superman Idea’ in his famous
treatise on what are now described as Liberal-socialists titled ‘‘The Law. The Classic Blueprint for a Just Society’which modern day psychologists identify as malignant narcissism. The elitist belief of the Liberal-socialists is symptomatic of their mental disorder.
"The Superman Idea
The claims of these organizers of humanity raise another question which I have often asked them and which, so far as I know, they have never answered: If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind? The organizers maintain that society, when left undirected, rushes headlong to its inevitable destruction because the instincts of the people are so perverse. The legislators claim to stop this suicidal course and to give it a saner direction. Apparently, then, the legislators and the organizers have received from Heaven an intelligence and virtue
that place them beyond and above mankind; if so, let them show titles to this superiority." They would be shepherds over us, their sheep. Certainly such an arrangement presupposes that they are naturally superior to the rest of us. And certainly we are fully justified in demanding from the legislators and organizers proof of this natural superiority." (‘The Law. The
Classic Blueprint for a Just Society.’ By Frederic Bastiat. Pp. 63-64.)
Self-designated "elite," enigmatically gifted from on High with great new insight, (i.e. Neo-gnostic), Legislator Leader Community Organizers of the so-called "Progressive” (in reality most regressive as their mental disorder can be traced back to its spiritual roots which derive from the embracing of the original lie advanced by Satan in the Garden of Eden), Liberal-socialist, Democrat construct of a "Community" take it upon themselves to determine just what moral principles the rest of society is to embrace as politically and socially correct, but 'We the People' within American society MUST respond emphatically with the wisdom conveyed in the writings of Frederic Bastiat in protection of our God-given and constitutionally protected liberty and demand that the elitist faction which embrace the Liberal-socialist worldview and use it to justify in their own minds their assumption of authority to Show us their titles to their purported superiority that they assert they possess and by what right they presume the authority to boldly lead the rest of us within the godless framework of their morally relativistic and delusional Liberal-socialist, ‘Progressive,’ worldview."
The idolatrous agenda of those ‘Progressive’ Liberalsocialist Democrat advocates who attempt to influence every aspect of society is the agenda of Socialism.
Quite naturally Liberal-socialists need to do away with the American reverential acknowledgement of the Creator from whom all men are endowed with certain unalienable rights. The criminal usurper of the office of the president of the United States, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., a.k.a. Barry Soetoro, or as is name is recorded in one of his late mother’s US Passports, “Soebarkah,” has repeatedly deleted the word “Creator” from quotes he has made from the Declaration of Independence. Note well that the Democrats booed God at their 2012 National Convention in Tampa, Florida. It is the contention of the Liberal-socialists, consistent with a Liberal-socialist worldview, that Mankind’s rights originate from the state and more specifically the enigmatically gifted ‘Legislative Leader’ Community Organizers of the ‘Progressive,’ Liberal-socialist, inclusive, Politically Correct, pluralistic, morally relevant
Quite naturally, born again Believers in the risen Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible who came in the flesh, the Creator from whom all men are endowed with certain unalienable Rights, are excluded from the Liberal’s socalled “Community” as “non-bright,” intolerant instigators of social unrest and politically incorrect ideology. The “unity” proposed by Liberal-socialists is a demonic counterfeit for true Christian unity in Christ Jesus.
"Socialists look upon people as raw material to be formed into social combinations. To them—the elite—the relation between persons and the legislator appears to be the same as the relationship between the clay and the potter."
(‘The Law. The Classic Blueprint for a Just Society.’ By Frederic Bastiat.’ Pp. v-vi.) It was God who formed man from the dust, not any Man.
What is the “Community Construct” of the Liberalsocialists? They claim it is all the inhabitants within a society, that it is “inclusive” and “pluralistic,” and “diverse,” yet if anyone disagrees with the worldview of its self-appointed ‘Legislative Leaders’—its ‘Community Organizers’—they are ostracized and excluded from the ‘Community.’ ‘Non-brights,’ those who embrace a JudeoChristian worldview, are not invited to be part of the asserted pluralism and diversity. Any who disagree with the self-appointed Community Organizer Legislative Leader Superheroes and all that they proclaim as morally righteous are demonized as politically incorrect and evil.
ALL SOCIALISM IS NATIONAL SOCIALISM!
"The Indirect Approach to Despotism
Usually, however, these gentlemen—the reformers, the legislators, and the writers on public affairs do not desire to impose direct despotism upon mankind. Oh, no, they are too moderate and philanthropic for such direct action. Instead, they turn to the law for this despotism, this absolutism, this omnipotence. They
only to make the laws." (‘The Law.’ Pg. 56.)
"The Vicious Circle of Socialism
We shall never escape from this circle: the idea of passive mankind, and the power of the law being used by a great man to propel the people.
Once on this incline, will society enjoy some liberty? (Certainly.) And what is liberty..." (‘The Law.’ Pg. 58) "...liberty is power. Of what does this power consist? (Of being educated and of being given the tools of production.) Who is to give the education and the tools
of production? (Society, which owes them to everyone.) By what action is society to give tools of production to those who do not own them? (why by the action of the state.) And from whom will the state take them?
Let the reader answer that question. Let him also notice the direction in which this is taking us.
The Doctrine of the Democrats
The strange phenomenon of our times -- one which will probably astound our descendants -- is the doctrine based on this triple hypothesis: the total inertness of mankind, the omnipotence of the law, and the infallibility of the legislator. These three ideas form the sacred symbol of those who proclaim themselves totally democratic.
The advocates of this doctrine also profess to be social. So far as they are democratic, they place unlimited faith in mankind. But so far as they are social, they regard
mankind as little better than mud. Let us examine this contrast in greater detail.
What is the attitude of the democratic when political rights are under discussion? How does he regard the people when a legislator is to be chosen? Ah, then it is claimed that the people have an instinctive wisdom; they are gifted with the finest perception; their will is always right; the general will cannot err; voting cannot be too universal.
When it is time to vote, apparently the voter is not to be asked for any guarantee of his wisdom. His will and capacity to choose wisely are taken for granted. Can the people be mistaken? Are we not living in an age of enlightenment? What! Are the people always to be kept on leashes? Have they not won their rights by great effort and sacrifice? Have they not given ample proof of their intelligence and wisdom? Are they not adults Are they not capable of judging for themselves? Do they not know what is best for themselves? Is there a class or a
man who would be so bold as to set himself above the people, and judge and act for them? No, no, the people are and should be free. They desire to manage their own affairs, and they shall do so.
But when the legislator is finally elected—ah! Then indeed the tone of his speech undergoes radical change. The people are returned to passiveness, inertness, and unconsciousness; the legislator enters into omnipotence. Now it is time for him to initiate, to direct, to propel, and to organize. Mankind has only to submit; the hour of despotism has struck. We now observe this fatal idea: The people who, during the election, were so wise, so moral, and so perfect, now have no tendencies whatever; or if they have any, they are tendencies that lead downward into degradation." (‘The Law.’ Pp. 59-61.)
"...the conscience of the social democrats cannot permit persons to have any liberty because they believe that the nature of mankind tends always toward every kind of degradation and disaster. Thus, of course, the
legislators must make plans for the people in order to save them from themselves." (‘The Law.’ Pg. 63.)
Liberal op-ed columnist Maureen Dowd wrote a scathing editorial, 'Dreaming of a Superhero,' (The New York Times; Sunday Review. June 2, 2012,) in which she criticized her one-time "superhero," Barack Hussein Obama, a.k.a. Barry Soetoro. Arriving at her conclusions Ms. Dowd wrote, "But superheroes and mythic
figures must boldly lead," and that "Obama's caution..." "...has restrained him at times."
Though Ms. Dowd exhibits disdain in her article for her "flagging" superhero, she persists in embracing the faulty underlying worldview that determines her warped, delusional, Liberal-socialist mindset and creates such irrational perceptions of certain individuals as idolized supermen.
An appropriate emblem for the personification of a union between Maureen Dowd's superhero might well be the emblem of Germany’s National Socialist’s, the NAZI’s, Shutzstaffel, or "Protective Squadron':
The Liberal’s idolized superhero construct is expected by Socialists to '...make plans for the people in order to save them from themselves.' Read, if you please: "Protective Superhero Squadrons!"
Mr. Kouyate has no reservations in asserting that his “…word is pure and free from all untruths.” (Niane. Pg. 1.), and Mr. Niane, in spite of all the acknowledgements regarding the ever-changing nature of the multitudinous versions of the Sundiata epic, has no problem believing him. Clearly Niane’s writing of the book taking dictation from Kouyate is a case of the blind leading the blind. Not unlike a Liberal-socialist who considers himself a ‘Master Thinker,’ or ‘Superman,’ or ‘Legislative Leader,’ or ‘Community Organizer,’ Mr. Kouyate delusionally believes that his word is free from all untruths while at the same time embraces the belief that he may tell the story differently to “the vulgar” lesser beings within society as he so sees fit.
It wasn’t far into the telling of the Sundiata fairy tale that Kouyate gave praise to his god, Islam’s Allah: “…by the grace of Allah the Almighty,…” (Niane. Pg. 2.)
Unquestionably the author’s earlier translation of the word ‘God’ in the sentence “…he was beloved of God…” (Niane. Pg. 2), reverentially capitalized as it is, is an effort at equating in the mind of the Western reader God with the Muslim’s god Allah.
Similarly, in the same sentence the griot praises “…the Prophet Muhammad…” and offers a reverential prayer, “(may the peace of God be upon him).” Are we to suspect that the god to whom the griot lifts up a prayer for the prophet Mohammed is not the Islamic god Allah?
The two words are not interchangeable. In fact today in Indonesia laws have been passed which mandate that non-Muslims may not use the name of the god of Islam, Allah, when referring to deity—why any of them would is beyond my understanding; suffice it to say that the deliberate effort at replacement of the meaning of God as is understood within Western Judeo-Christian culture with Islam’s construct of their god, Allah, is clearly agenda driven. I have no doubt in my mind that in an oral transmission of the epic Mr. Kouyate would have followed his mention of “…the faithful servant of the Prophet Muhammad…” (Niane. Pg. 2) with a dedication to none other than the Muslim god Allah and that the word ‘Allah’ is the word
he would most certainly use. Mr. Niane is conducting academic jihad by his intentionally misleading deception.
Just as the illiterate historical Mohammed combined a multitude of elements from a multitude of contemporaneous religions when first organizing his new cult which was to become Islam, a lifted reflection of the biblical narrative in which the Jews were commanded to cleanse the temple with the blood of a spotless red heifer appears early on in the story where the hunter prophesizes of the need to sacrifice a red bull so that the hideous mother to be of Maghan Kon Fatta’s heir to the throne to be might be lead to him. (See Niane Pg. 6.)
The epic tells us that women were regarded as a form of property as in the case of Sogolon Kedjou being the reward for the hunter from Sangaran killing the raging buffalo. The
description of how she came to conceive after passing—that ‘…when she woke up, she was already a wife.’ (Niane. Pg. 12), leaves little to the imagination and demonstrates the dominance of the husband in the marriage relationship in early West African society. Other instances of women being highly regarded also express a complex nature to the society’s broad continuum of possibilities for positions in which women might be related to. While at times regarded no more highly than cattle, other times great respect and honor was bestowed upon certain women.
On the one hand the griot relates that “The fortified town of Sosso was the bulwark of fetishism against the word of Allah.” (Niane. Pg. 41.), while on the other hand the entire nature of the setting of the story and the religious inclinations of the characters as described in the story contradictorily indicate that the religious profile of the society was of a multitude of animistic tribal beliefs. The Muslim griot clearly and intentionally attempts to overstate Islam’s significance within the society.
No obvious Islamic connection exists in the story other than the few salutary comments injected by the griot. The only conclusion that can be drawn from a reading of the text is that Islam did not affect the beliefs of the people of West Africa very much at all, but deeply affects the griot telling the tale.
“Under Islamic laws, slavery is explicitly permitted. As Saudi Sheikh Saleh Al-Fawzan, a member of the Senior Council of Clerics had said in 2003, those who argue that slavery is abolished are "ignorant, not scholars. They are merely writers. Whoever says such things is an infidel." Muhammad himself was a slaver. He not only owned many male and female slaves, but he also sold, captured, and had sex with his slaves. Even his wives owned slaves.
Apologists will claim that Muhammad provided a system that would eventually lead to the abolition of slavery, but this is not true and nowhere does Islamic scripture support such a statement. Yes, Muhammad regulated it and allowed for the manumission of a slave, but this is by no means an obligation. It is clear that Muhammad held no animosity towards slavery, and at times even discouraged the freeing of slaves. He even encouraged racism by exchanging two black slaves for one Arab. As is clear, Muhammad's actions perpetuated the existence of this reprehensible trade by institutionalizing it within Islam, This sanction of slavery has helped the Muslim world create one of the largest trans-continental slave trades in history.
The Eastern Islamic slave trade is the longest yet least discussed of the two major trades. Much like the Crusades and the Islamic Conquests which prompted them, you only hear of the one and not the other. Many people are not even aware that the Arab slave trade ever existed, even though it began around 650 AD (pre-dating the European slave trade by over a thousand years) However, It was only officially abolished (due largely to pressure from the West, rather than their own conscience) in the 1960's and the slave trade still exists in the Islamic East. As of July 2009, there were over half a million slaves in Mauritania alone. In Pakistan, the labor minister of Punjab had said in early 2009 that there are "millions of forced laborers in 'private prisons' across the country", and the town of Hajja, Yemen, in 2010 is home to another 300 slaves.
Mass murder by moderate Muslims in Nigeria.
This (just like the history of Jihad) is an ongoing atrocity that many want to erase from our history books and have largely succeeded in doing so. Unlike the Europeans who were primarily interested in male slaves for use as agricultural workers, the Islamic raiders interests (like Muhammad's before them) lay in female slaves to use for sexual exploitation as concubines, in harems. Also, putting aside the 1.25 million white Europeans Christians who were captured and sold into the Muslim slave trade between the 16th and 19th century, the number of innocent Africans who were taken (or died in the process of being taken) as slaves over the last fourteen centuries of Islamic slavery is estimated to be higher than 140 million. This figure dwarfs the numbers that were taken at the hands of Europeans. And unlike in the West, male slaves (blacks in particular) were commonly castrated, hence the lack of surviving descendants of black slaves in the Middle-East.” http://wikiislam.net/wiki/Islamic_Law#Slavery
Little-known fact: the Muslim countries were among the very last which abolished slavery, mainly because slavery is enriched in the Islamic law. Qatar: 1952. Saudi Arabia: 1962. Yemen: 1962. United Arab Emirates: 1963. Oman: 1970. Mauritania: 2007. Slavery in other Muslim countries was abolished by Italian, French, or British
Slave girls in Islam have a strict dress code: only cover from the navel to the knees, to differentiate them from the free Muslims. Female and child slaves in Islam are primarily acquired as spoils of wars, but can also be traded in special markets called Suq an-Nukhasa (slave market). The slave, male or female, cannot refuse sex to their master, in addition to the usual chores.
Efforts at converting Africans to Islam were mixed. North Africans of Arab lineage and Egyptian blood were converted by the sword of Islam, while Africans of darker complexion further South along the West Coast have largely resisted Islam due in great part to the hoarding bands of slave traders who enslaved people from the West coast of Africa and still do to this day. Only recently Angola, a former Portuguese colony, outlawed Islamic mosques. Angolans are determined to stop the vicious spread of the modern day civilization jihad within the borders of their country.
As an historical source to which very limited reliability should be extended the Sundiata gives insight into generalities surrounding the polytheistic, animistic belief system of the culture in and around Mali and the hierarchal system of political power that was most tenuously held by any leader at any time in the region, but the degree to which any specific facts should be
regarded as historically reliable must be weighed against the stated self-assumed authority of the griot to tell the tale howsoever he or any of his descendants should at any given time and place feel obliged according to their whims and potential ulterior motives to tell it.
Victory in Jesus:
―One of the most subtle roles of demons is the perverting of revealed truth. They never cease in their endeavor to turn men away from the gospel of Christ and to deny and distort the Word of God. Their activity started when Satan used a threefold strategy of opposition to God (Isaiah 14: 12-14), confirmed falsehood (Genesis 3:4), and slander of the divine goodness (Genesis 3:5; cf. John 8:44). Down through the centuries Satan and his host of demon helpers, who make his presence and power practically ubiquitous, have used the same strategy to tempt men. When man succumbed to Satan‘s blandishments, he lost his Edenic innocence and his fellowship with God (Genesis 3:8) and fell under the control of evil spiritual powers, who encourage fallen
man to rebel against God‘s Word and will. As God began to work in redemption (Genesis 3:915; 21; cf. John 5:17; 9:4; 17:4), Satan‟s spiritual hosts waged a persistent and endless counter-campaign to keep man ignorant of divinely revealed truth and redemptive grace in Christ. Satanic strategy always aims to deceive men to the greatest degree possible. If ‗the god of this world‘ cannot totally blind the unbeliever‘s mind and thus completely hide the gospel from him (2 Corinthians 4:4), he will seduce the believer to the best of his ability. To keep the believer from the simplicity and purity of the gospel and grace he will encourage all sorts of errors. This is Satan‘s attempt to retain some degree of control over those who come to a saving knowledge of Christ. Doctrinal error obscures revelation and gives Satan and demonic forces a toehold. Evil powers can confuse man in his attempt to interpret truth, but they cannot penetrate the sure defense of God‘s infallible Word. The Holy Bible, God‘s revealed Word, points us to Christ‘s victory over Satan at the cross. He alone can deliver us from evil and from the evil one.‖ (Demons In The World Today.

Sound Biblical Doctrine:
"The danger of delusion increases in these last days as demonic activity accelerates and serious study of God‘s Word wanes. It is a patent fact that sound Bible teaching often is lacking in circles that highlight miracles and healings and gifts of the Spirit. Sometimes the so-called ‗distinctive truths‘ are mere doctrinal hobbies and perversions of the Word of God. When these focus on anything other than Jesus Christ and the full scriptural revelation, counterfeit powers of demons may infiltrate lives. This warning is desperately needed by God‘s born-again people (1 John 4:1). Present-day Christians must recognize that the Bible, rightly understood and implicitly obeyed, is the only sure protection against demonic delusion and despoilment. Evil powers can accomplish their deceptions only when the Word of God is ignored or disdained – and many Christians are susceptible to demonic influence today because they have ignored God‘s revelation in his Word. The Bible is impregnable armor for the Christian – when he lives in it!‖ (Demons in the World Today.

―Although some people regard the pursuit of doctrinal accuracy as an unspiritual
intellectualism, sound doctrine is actually very important to sound spirituality. Christian doctrine teaches us about God, His purposes and will for our lives, what we are like spiritually apart from God‘s grace, how God‘s grace changes us; in short, everything we need to know in order to pursue true spirituality (Rom. 6:17-18; 1 Tim. 1:5, 10; 2 Tim. 3:16-17). Doctrine provides external, objective controls for our inward, subjective experiences so that we may discern genuine spirituality from fraudulent, artificial, or even demonic spirituality (Col. 2:2223; 1 John 4:1-3). In pursuing an accurate understanding of Christian doctrine, we are fulfilling one aspect of God‘s greatest commandment – that we love God with all our minds (Matt. 22:37). This commandment surely implies that we should take great care and make every effort to conform our beliefs and convictions to the truth (cf. Rom. 12:2) – and this means doctrine.‖ (Bowman,

"We are living in days when Satan is pouring out his spirits as well as Jesus Christ the Holy Spirit. In the Revelation, the activities of evil spirits are foretold as part of the total conflict of the Church with the powers of darkness. In Chapter 9 there is a terrifying vision of the shaft of the bottomless pit being opened to release "locusts" that swarm over the earth, deceiving and destroying. But most of the world does not repent, but continues to worship demons (verse 20). Later in the same book there is a vision of the dragon, the beast and the false prophet, and from each of their mouths there comes, "foul spirits like frogs, for they are demonic spirits, performing signs..." (16: 13). Yet again, we discover that the other powerful agency of evil in the Revelation, Babylon, is under the same influence. We are told that this symbol of affluence "has become a dwelling place for demons, a haunt of every foul spirit..." (18: 2). As we draw nearer to Christ's return there is no indication of a lessening of this power. The idea that evil spirits only operate in "uncivilised" parts of the world is entirely illusory. It may be true that at some points in history the power of a Church which believed in both the existence of such evil powers and the authority it possessed in Christ's name to overcome them, had removed most of this power from its borders or driven it underground and so neutralised its effectiveness. But such a situation does not exist today, for the Church has largely abdicated its authority and blandly disbelieves in such things. The enemy has come in like a flood, and few have resisted it. Merrill F. Unger has written: 5 Although demonic activity in human history has always been undeniably great since the sin of our first parents exposed mankind to its baneful attacks, yet the full realization and augmentation of its destructive power are reserved for the consummation of the age. Demonism bears a striking relation to the doctrine of the last thing; and all classes of mankind. Jew, Gentile
and the Church of God (1 Cor. 10: 32) will be intimately and vitally affected by the last-day upsurge of evil supernaturalism." (Spiritual Warfare. By Micheal Harper. Copyright 1970. U.S.A. ISBA 0912106-69-7. Pp. 40-41.)

Liberalism‟s “Progressive” Plantation:
America has effectively turned its back on the biblical standards of righteousness upon which this Christian nation was founded and effectively reaped the reward of what she has sown. Relegating Americans with African ancestry unto a Liberal-socialist ‗Progressive‘ metaphorical plantation of pathetic survival on social welfare as opposed to achieving personal success has wreaked havoc on them and on American society as a whole.
If only in the signing of the Declaration of Independence our nation‘s Founding Fathers had not compromised with the truth and deleted the clause which would have outlawed slavery in our newly born nation—but they did, and the rest is history. It took Christian abolitionists like John Brown and Wilbur Wilberforce to propel political and social change in concert with the national blood-letting of a civil war for America to nationally repent of the sin of the legalized institution of slavery. It shall take Christian apologists who rightly divide the Word of God to defeat the untenable arguments of the Liberal-socialists behind the present day enslavement of Americans within the bondage of the Liberal-socialist government subsidized defacto welfare plantation.
The original composition of the Declaration of Independence contained a clause that was deleted because of protests of only two of the thirteen original colonies, Georgia and South Carolina. That original draft was a scathing refutation of the slave trade and read, ―He has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating its most sacred rights of life & liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in
another hemisphere, or to incur miserable death in their transportation thither. This piratical warfare, the opprobrium of infidel powers, is the warfare of the Christian king of Great Britain. Determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought & sold. He has prostituted his negative (veto) for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or to restrain this execrable commerce; and that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of distinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms among us, and to purchase that liberty of which he has deprived them, by murdering the people for whom he also obtruded them: thus paying off former crimes committed against the liberties of one people, with crimes which he urges them to commit against the lives of another.‖ Slavery was not universally accepted among American Christians at the time of the founding of the country.
Yet, today Liberal-socialists blindly lead those who would follow them ―Forward‖ unto the spiritual, economic, and ideological bondage into de facto slavery upon a de facto Democrat party plantation within a Liberal-socialist, ―Progressive‖ welfare state.
Unbiblical doctrinal error can lead otherwise honorable Christians into embracing evil. In the book „Reading The Man: A Portrait of Robert E. Lee Through His Private Letters‟ by Elizabeth Brown Pryor she writes, "He held that although slavery was regrettable, it
was an institution sanctioned by God and as such would disappear only when God ordained it." (Bordewich, Fergus M. "Day of Reckoning."Smithsonian Oct 2009: 68.) Such is the
degree to which Christians like Robert E. Lee as well as the society in which they live may be deceived by false, unbiblical doctrines into justifying something as hideously evil as institutionalized, legalized slavery.
―Slavery is widely misunderstood and as such has been a tool for hustlers and demagogues. Slavery has been part of the human condition throughout recorded history and everywhere on the globe. Romans enslaved other Europeans; Greeks enslaved other Greeks; Asians enslaved Asians; Africans enslaved Africans; and in the New World, Aztecs enslaved Aztecs and other native groups. Even the word slave is derived from the fact that Slavic people were among the early European slaves.
Though racism has been used to justify slavery, the origins of slavery had little to do with racism. In recent history, the major slave traders and slave owners have been Arabs, who enslaved Europeans, black Africans and Asians. A unique aspect of slavery in the Western world was the moral outrage against it, which began to emerge in the 18th century and led to massive efforts to eliminate it. It was Britain‘s military might and the sight of the Union Jack on the high seas that ultimately put an end to the slave trade.
Unfortunately, the facts about slavery are not the lessons taught in our schools and colleges. The gross misrepresentation and suggestion in textbooks and lectures is that slavery was a uniquely American practice done by racist white people to black people. Despite abundant historical evidence, youngsters are taught nothing about how the Founding Fathers quarreled, debated and agonized over the slave issue.‖ (Williams, Walter. "Truth About Slavery Schools Aren't
Teaching." 24, Oct. 2012. wnd.com. Graphics with quotes inserted into the wnd.com quote by author.)
“From evidence found in the earliest legal documents, Anthony Johnson must be recognized as the nation’s first official legal slaveholder.” “Johnson—who had himself been captured in Angola and brought to America as an indentured servant—was a black man.” “The father of legalized slavery in America was a black man.” (Father of U.S. Slavery Was a Black Man, by Ben Kinchlow. Wnd.com, 2/24/2013.
“Prior to 1655 there were no legal chattel slaves in the colonies, only indentured servants. All masters were required to free their servants after their time was up. Seven years was the limit that an indentured servant could be held. Upon their release they were granted 50 acres of
land. This included any black African purchased from slave traders. Blacks were also granted 50 acres upon their release. Anthony Johnson was a Negro from modern-day Angola. He was brought to the US to work on a tobacco farm in 1619. In 1622 he was almost killed when Powhatan Indians attacked the farm. 52 out of 57 people on the farm perished in the attack. He married a female black servant while working on the farm. When Anthony was released he was legally recognized as a “free Negro” and ran a successful farm. In 1651 he held 250 acres and five black indentured servants. In 1654, it was time for Anthony to release John Casor, a black indentured servant. Instead Anthony told Casor he was extending his time. Casor left and became employed by the free white man Robert Parker. Anthony Johnson sued Robert Parker in the Northampton Court in 1654. In 1655, the court ruled that Anthony Johnson could hold John Casor indefinitely. The court gave judicial sanction for blacks to own members of their own race as chattel slaves. Thus Casor became the first permanent slave and Johnson the first slave owner. Whites still could not legally hold a black servant as a chattel slave until 1670. In that year, the colonial assembly passed legislation permitting free whites, blacks, and Indians the right to own blacks as slaves. By 1699, the number of free blacks prompted fears of a “Negro insurrection.” Virginia Colonial ordered the
repatriation of freed blacks back to Africa. Many blacks sold themselves to white masters so they would not have to go to Africa. This was the first effort to gently repatriate free blacks back to Africa. The modern nations of Sierra Leone and Liberia both originated as colonies of repatriated former black slaves. However, black slave owners continued to thrive in the United States. By 1830 there were 3,775 black families living in the South who owned black slaves. By 1860 there were about 3,000 slaves owned by black households in the city of New Orleans alone.” (http://topconservativenews.com/2013/07/the-first-slaveowner-in-america-was-a-black-man/.

Faulty biblical doctrine embraced by Christians was as responsible for the perpetuation of the institution of slavery as the enormous profits to be made. Similarly, unbiblical economic principles today allow proponents of ‗Progressive‘ Liberal-socialism to further enslave a group of people within the bondage of the multitudinous metaphorical chains of Socialism on the Liberal-socialist, Democrat, ―Progressive‖ welfare state plantation including: a) spiritual chains forged in the denial of the authority of Scripture and the rejection of a recognition of Man‘s need of a Savior; b) ideological chains forged in the lies of the Liberal-socialist‘s morally relevant worldview; and c) economic chains forged in the irrational arguments of the Liberalsocialist‘s welfare state utopian fantasy, which, (under their irrational system upon a de facto modern-day slave plantation—a ‗Progressive‘ plantation—run by the Liberal-socialist, ‗Progressive,‘ Democrat Party‘s delusional, self-proclaimed as elite ‗Community‘ Organizers, or as Frederic Bastiat identified them, ―Superhuman‖ ―Legislative Leaders‖), or as sociologists identify them as ‗Master Thinkers‘ endowed with an enigmatic gnostic-like higher knowledge or verstehen, effectively enslaves recipients of the re-distributed ―benefits.‖
Harriet Tubman, ―(born Araminta Harriet Ross; 1820—March 10, 1913), was an African-American abolitionist, humanitarian, and Union spy during the American Civil War. Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and subsequently made more than thirteen missions to rescue more than 70 slaves using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. She later helped John Brown recruit men for his raid on Harpers Ferry, and in the post-war era struggled for women's suffrage,‖ (Wikipedia.org), said,
“I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.”
Booker T. Washington, ―an African-American educator, author, orator, and advisor to Republican presidents,‖ (Wikipedia.org), warned America in 1901 of a covetous group of instigators within the community of Americans of African descent who, for personal financial gain, continually stir up dissension with the following words: ―There
is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of
their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs—partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.‖
The Bible teaches in an often misquoted verse, 1st Timothy 6:10: ‗ῥίζα γὰρ πάντων τῶν κακῶν ἐστιν ἡ φιλαργυρία,’ that ―The love of money is the root of all kinds of evils.‖
Liberal-Socialism‘s moral relativism—as opposed to the belief in absolute truth—is the cornerstone of the Liberal perversions of the concepts of pluralism, diversity, multiculturalism, inclusiveness, unity, and tolerance; which are all deviously united as a counterfeit to the absolute Truth inscribed within the Word of God—the Light of the world—in a diabolical rainbow of faulty assertions based on presupposition and conjecture advanced under an intellectually indefensible banner of “Political Correctness.”
"Socialism Is Legal Plunder
"It is impossible to introduce into society a greater change and a greater evil than this: the conversion of the law into an instrument of plunder." („The Law.‟ Pg.8.) "But how is this legal plunder to be identified? Quite simply, See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen
at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime." („The Law.‟ Pg. 17.)
"Socialists desire to practice legal plunder, not illegal plunder. Socialists, like all other monopolists, desire to make the law their own weapon. And when once the law is on the side of socialism, how can it be used against socialism?" („The Law.‟ Pg. 19.) "The Seductive Lure of Socialism" "Here I encounter the most popular fallacy of our times. It is not considered sufficient that the law should be just; it must be philanthropic. Nor is it sufficient that the law should guarantee to every citizen the free and inoffensive use of his faculties for physical, intellectual, and moral self-improvement. Instead, it is demanded that the law should directly extend welfare, education, and morality throughout the nation.
This is the seductive lure of socialism. And I repeat again: These two uses of the law are in direct contradiction to each other. We must choose between them. A citizen cannot at the same time be free and not free." („The Law.‟ Pg. 21.) "I declare that I do not mean to attack the intentions or the morality of anyone. Rather, I am attacking an idea which I believe to be false; a system which appears to me to be unjust; an injustice so independent of personal intentions that each of us profits from it without wishing to do so, and suffers from it without knowing the cause of the suffering.) („The Law.‟ Pg. 23.) "Is not liberty the destruction of all despotism -- including, of course, legal despotism? („The Law.‟ Pg. 51.) "Finally, is not liberty the restricting of the law only to its rational spheres of organizing the right of the individual to lawful self-defense of punishing injustice?" („The Law.‟ Pg. 51-52.)
"Philanthropic Tyranny" („The Law.‟ Pg. 52.) "While society is struggling toward liberty, these famous men who put themselves at its head are filled with the spirit of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. They think only of subjecting mankind to the philanthropic tyranny of their own social interventions." („The Law.‘ Pg.52.) "...they desire to force mankind docilely to bear this yoke of the public welfare that they have dreamed up in their own imaginations." („The Law.‘ Pg. 53.) "The claims of these organizers of humanity...", agnostic, secular-humanist, liberal social
democrat ―Master thinkers, "...raise another question which I have often asked them and which, so far as I know, they have never answered: If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good?" („The Law.‟ Pg. 63.)
"The organizers maintain that society, when left undirected, rushes headlong to its inevitable destruction because the instincts of the people are so perverse. The legislators claim to stop this suicidal course and to give it a saner direction. Apparently, then, the legislators and the organizers have received from Heaven an intelligence and virtue that place them beyond and above mankind..." („The Law.‟ Pp. 63-64.)
Idolized Liberal-socialist 'superheroes' maintain, according to their irrational, delusional worldview constructed within a malignantly narcissistic mindset , which invariably asserts that they have some enigmatic, neo-gnostic-like great new insight into what it is that the rest of society needs; and that whatever it is that they determine is in fact the 'Change' that society needs. They assert that they alone are the “enlightened” ones who have the God -given, 'superhuman' right—authority—to see that society gets it. They are society's only “Hope”… whether it is the "Change"…which “mere mortals” within any given society want or not.
The Crusades Reconsidered
By Mike Konrad. http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/08/mthe_crusades_reconsidered.html August 11, 2013
One of the idiocies passed off for decades among Western historians is bemoaning the Crusades as evil. The Islamic world -- the Ummah -- has disseminated this imaginary charge against the West, and like fools, we have absorbed Arab lies
and taken the blame to heart. But the most superficial reading of Western history should put that canard to rest. Shortly before he died in June 632 AD, Mohammed ordered Muslims to prepare to wage war against the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire. Upon his death, Mohammed's successor, Abu Bakr, planned to fulfill those instructions. Plans were also made to conquer Zoroastrian Sassanid Persia. This vainglorious troop of bandits should have been easily dispatched, However. Persia and Byzantine Rome had just come out of a savagely vicious war which ended in 628 AD. Emperor Heraclius had finally imposed the total defeat over Persia that had eluded the earlier Roman Republic and the Caesars -- but Byzantine Rome, though victorious, was severely mauled. Persia was reduced to a state of anarchy; and forced to pay indemnities to Constantinople. The Persian and Eastern Roman empires were attacked almost simultaneously around 633 AD, while both were still licking their wounds. So frightening were the Islamic advances that these former blood enemies made a sadly futile alliance. By 644, Persia fell anyway. By 634 AD, Byzantine Palestine and Syria were being attacked. The Battle of Yarmouk in August 636 AD would see Eastern Roman forces beaten. Emperor Heraclius, the victorious warrior, a mere 8 years earlier, would have to sneak out back to Constantinople in a boat. Farewell, a long farewell to Syria, my fair province. Thou art an infidel's (enemy's) now. Peace be with you, O' Syria -- what a beautiful land you will be for the enemy hands -- Emperor Heraclius, after the defeat at Yarmouk. Roman-held Jerusalem was besieged in November 636 AD, and surrendered by the following April. By 674 AD, the Muslims had taken Egypt and much of Anatolian Turkey, and were besieging Constantinople. The Byzantine Romans, unlike the Persians, still had some fight left and managed to lift the siege using Greek fire, a fearsome weapon similar to a flamethrower. By 709 AD, all of Christian North Africa had fallen to Islam. Though it took the Muslims centuries, eventually all of Christianity was eliminated in the Maghreb. In 711 AD, the Muslims invaded Spain, again taking advantage of weakness caused by internecine wars. It would be 781 years before Spain would be free. Among Islamic Andalusia's contributions to civilization were the demanded tribute of 100 white virgins every year to staff their harems. Every other contribution was plagiarized from other civilizations the Muslims had plundered.
By 732, the Muslims had advanced to central France, where they were finally repelled by Franks at the battle of Tours. Western Europe had been temporarily spared. Sicily fell under Islamic rule for almost two centuries, until finally liberated by Norman Franks around 1091 AD. According to tradition, Malta fell to Islam in 870 AD. Islam's contribution's to local culture was piracy. Malta became a staging point for predatory raids on Southern Europe. After two centuries, Malta was finally retaken in 1091 AD. Later on, historians would blame the Dark Ages on the Germanic Tribes, but the Goths and Vikings readily Christianized and embraced the higher civilization of the lands they conquered. The reality is that Islamic raiding is what produced the Dark Ages. Trade and the economy collapsed under the Muslim threat, plunging Europe into stagnation. In 1095, after centuries of Muslim aggression, Pope Urban II finally had enough, and called Christians to war. He did so after the Byzantine Empire, now broken away from Roman Catholicism, appealed for fraternal help from the Western Christians to save them from Islam. After over 4 centuries of war with Islam, the Byzantines were on the verge of collapse. Most of Spain was still under Islamic tyranny. Malta and Sicily had only been recently freed.
One may condemn the atrocities of the Crusaders, but what infuriates the objective student of history is that the far greater crimes of Islam are ignored. The Crusades was Christendom finally fighting back, not always honorably, but against a foe which had plunged Europe into darkness for centuries. Instead we allowed our students to be brainwashed, and force fed an Islamic line that we have to feel guilty. The Muslims invaded Southern Europe, yet somehow we Westerners are labeled the imperialists. Islamic aggression did not end with the Crusades. The reason Columbus headed West was because the Muslims had blocked all trade routes to the East. Yet, we are never told this. Up until the 16th century, Italy was regularly invaded by Islam. Otranto was taken by the Turks in 1480, and held for only 10 months. Yet, it was time enough to behead over 800 Christians who refused to convert. Piracy and kidnapping was so common that Catholic Churches in Southern Europe had donation boxes where the faithful could contribute to ransom hostages. One could go on and on. The Islamic subjugation of Greece and the Balkans. The kidnapping of hundreds of thousands of Christian boys, over the centuries, to be forcibly converted to Islam, and compelled to serve in the Ottoman Army as Janissaries. The Islamic attempt to take Vienna. Twice! In 1529 and 1683. A half million or more slaves from the British Isles were kidnapped on the high seas by the religion of peace. It was not until the U.S. Marines took on the Barbary Pirates and the French razed Algeria that Islamic predation finally stopped in the 19th century; but all of this is forgotten. Somehow, white Christians are the only villains now. We hear the Muslims bewail about British imperialism; but the British do not want to go back to Egypt. The Muslim do want Andulasia back. We hear about French crimes in Algeria -- which were real -- but do we remember that Islamic predation that was the real agent which caused the Dark Ages. Europeans were in North Africa for only a century, but Islam pounded Europe for 1200 years. Yet, it is the Arabs who claim victim status. But what do our politicians do, but apologize for the Crusades. Why?! Have the Muslims apologized for 1400 years of their crimes?! Part of this idiocy stems from a hyper-liberal view of history which views European Christianity as inherently evil. It permeates the culture of academia; and refuses to see the real evil of Islam.
Sadly, a second cause is an ancillary residue of historiography which has a tradition of exaggerating the real crimes of Catholicism out of all proportion. The Spanish call this exaggeration the Black Legend of the Inquisition; and it results in a pseudo-acquittal of Islam, by blaming the Crusades on Catholicism. Let us not forget that it was Catholic Europe which insulated Northwest European Protestants from Islam's full fury. It was Catholic Spain which eventually broke the Turkish fleet at the Battle of Lepanto in 1571. It was Catholic Poland's Jan Sobieski who saved Northwest Europe at Vienna in 1683 AD. It was the Catholic French who tamed Algeria in 1830. Let us not forget either that it was Catholic France which saved the Christians of Lebanon in 1860 while the Protestant British were arming the Druze. The time for apologizing to Islam must end.
America’s Founding Fathers Drew a Line in the Sand:

becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of Nature and of Nature's God...", the Lord Jesus Christ, "...entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."
Said preamble needs now in our time at the helm of our ship of state to be amended by the following sentiments inserted after the words 'which have connected them with another' by extending the wording to address the enemy we face today, the murderous cult of Islam, and read as follows: '...which have connected them with another even to the degree of tolerating intolerable ideological or religious beliefs which have and do define themselves through the actions of adherents to such beliefs as the enemy of the liberty which with we are endowed by our Creator, the Lord Jesus Christ.’ Since the murderous cult of Islam has throughout its history and continues to explicitly hold to doctrines of world domination that involves the dhimmitudinization of non-Muslims, 'We the People' must recognize that values espoused in the teachings of Islam are incompatible with a free society and that the murderous cult of Islam cannot—must not—be tolerated in the United States of America or any of her territories.
It was the contention of the signers of The Declaration of Independence in recognizing the entitlement of separate and equal station availed by the laws of Nature and Nature's God, the Lord Jesus Christ, unto a free nation that any such nation's citizens should rightly exercise the action of decently respecting the opinions of mankind in the Course of human events by declaring the causes which impelled them towards separation from, in the trial of their time, Great Britain. Americans today should as well decently respect the opinions of mankind in the Course of human events and declare as we face the trial of our time, the world-wide expansion of the murderous cult of Islam, an enemy as insurmountable in its dimensions as Great Britain presented itself unto America‟s Founders, the causes which impel us now unto the separation from and the rejection and exclusion of the murderous cult of Islam from the fabric of American society.
America must determine to defeat Islam. Nothing short of unconditional surrender will suffice for to permit Islam participation within a society is an invitation for the viral spread of the murderous cult which holds fundamentally to aspirations of world domination under a oneworld Islamic Caliphate.
Holding the truths which are self-evident as did America‟s founding fathers denies the toleration of any encroachment upon those same truths by erroneous ideologies which deny the Creator, the Lord Jesus Christ, from Whom all men are endowed with certain unalienable Rights.'
endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness' rings
The truth that '...all men are Created equal, that they are
familiar and true in the hearts of all those who would call themselves Americans. Those words are the very tintinnabulation resounding for generations within 'We the People' of the United States of America of the Spirit of '76', the American Spirit of Liberty, revered and saluted
symbolically in America's Liberty Bell which, though cracked and silent, still loudly rings in the hearts of all those who assent to the truth that all men are, in fact, endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.
rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED, --that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light or transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. BUT WHEN A LONG TRAIN OF ABUSES AND USURPATIONS, PURSUING INVARIABLY THE SAME OBJECT EVINCES A DESIGN TO REDUCE THEM UNDER ABSOLUTE DESPOTISM, IT IS THEIR RIGHT, IT IS THEIR DUTY, TO THROW OFF SUCH GOVERNMENT AND TO PROVIDE NEW GUARDS FOR THEIR FUTURE SECURITY."
The freedom of religion determined by and for 'We the People' in the First Amendment to the Constitution needs not be extended unto adherents to the murderous cult of Islam for the words 'When a long
The Declaration of Independence continues, "That to secure these
train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object...' are a working definition for Islam's doctrinal strategy—that is to say, 'design'—of DHIMMITUDE.
Islam advances an invariable pursuit of an object: Namely, a oneworld Islamic Caliphate, and evinces a design to reduce America under the absolute despotism of Sharia.
It is our right and our duty to throw off and throw out such a murderous cult as Islam as sure as it would be to throw off any government that would arise which so clearly met the description of that government our nation‟s Founding Fathers warned future generations of Americans. It is our duty to provide a ‘New Guards’ for America‟s future security: A new, legal, legitimate president who will lead us in the war in which we are engaged with the murderous cult of Islam.
America‟s enemy, Islam, reduces all non-Muslims unto the de facto slave status of dhimmi; a status with no rights under the absolute despotism of Sharia law.
The words written to protect America from abuses and usurpations by an hypothetical derelict American government apply equally, indeed more so, as instruction as how to proceed against any foreign enemy which meets the description in the warning from our Founding Fathers so precisely as does the murderous cult of Islam.
Islam is not just a religion. It is a cultural mandate unto every dimension of a society antithetical to the American experiment in „government of the People, by the People and for the People.‟ It is the right and the duty of those who would defend the Constitution and American Liberty to exclude the murderous cult of Islam from the religious freedoms bought with the blood and toil of Americans and throw out of our country adherents to such a murderous cult which espouses an agenda of world domination through terror.
America must expel all Muslims who advance any dimension of cultural jihad in order to guard her future security and she needs now to terminate any further immigration of adherents to Islam.
If Americans do not take this drastic step now future generations shall suffer the same fate as the citizens of all non-Muslim countries where Islam has conquered in its recorded history. Future generations of Americans shall have to take up the fight under far worse conditions wherein the murderous cult shall have entrenched itself more deeply within America‟s borders.
THE PRESENCE OF ISLAM IS AN INVITATION TO JIHAD.
No free society should tolerate Islam.
USCode, if followed will end all of the mosques in USA and remove citizenship to all Muslims in USA. Section 313 in Chapter 2 of the Immigration and Naturalization Act expressly forbids citizenship for anyone espousing any totalitarian ideology, which Islam does. No Muslim immigration! USCode 18 sec2381"Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid &comfort within the US or elsewhere, is guilty of treason.
America must determine to defeat her enemy and demand nothing less than unconditional surrender.
History clearly illustrates that compromise with the murderous cult of Islam inevitably leads to subjugation.
