Talk about fair weather fans.
America’s party of progress, the Democrats, have recently made themselves devout disciples of the Messiah (not Barack Obama this time, but Jesus Christ). That’s right – the party that voted in September at the Democratic National Convention to remove any mention of “God” from their party platform (before taking political fire, and the next day voting the good Lord back into their graces with a questionable voice vote), is now calling 2nd Amendment defenders to confession.
Just yesterday, the First Presbyterian Church of Dallas hosted a gun buyback program that offered $50 for handguns, rifles, and shotguns, and $200 for those more insidious “military-style semi automatic assault rifles” (a lengthy title that says nothing meaningful, and is the equivalent of calling a handgun a “quickdraw-style semi automatic assault hand-cannon” – but I digress).
Here in Connecticut, which laughably continues to call itself “The Constitution State”, the First Congregational Church of Guilford hosted an “adult education forum” on guns, where the visibly aloof state Senator Edward Meyer publicly proposed his bill to limit all firearms to a maximum of ONE ROUND – that’s right, no magazines required – and if you need more than a single bullet to drop an intruder, you can simply load another bullet into the chamber, right? Luckily the Senator, who admitted to having only ever shot a BB gun as a small boy, had on hand a retired Guilford police officer and Connecticut’s version of Piers Morgan to spew some meaningless statistics about gun control when pressed with a tough question. Piers, whose actual name and association I cannot recall, then went on to tell the crowd the true intent of the Second Amendment, in an English accent. The forum concluded with a prayer to end gun violence. The congregation, which numbered near 100 souls, was composed mostly of former Woodstock attendees and other concerned bobblehead dolls who devotedly bowed their heads before the cross, maybe for the first time ever.
God’s houses of organized worship are not the only venues where the liberals have espoused their new found faith. They have also taken to the internet media at places like the Huffington Post, where “Actor, Activist, Filmmaker, Humanist” Matthew Modine evangelized that “ I’m sure no god would give a blessing to weapons designed for the single purpose of killing people”.
Brian Kammerzelt, the Assistant Professor of Communications at Moody Bible Institute, wrote this theologically and rationally vapid attempt at appearing neutral and non-argumentative, while completely eviscerating some self-evident Christian truths, like the fact that men are created free to make choices; if they were not, we would all be Christians. But we’re not all Christians. Some of us are progressive opportunists hoping to invoke the pacifist nature of Jesus Christ into a politically expedient national gun debate.
The great irony is that Jesus, by his nature, would never have called for men and women across the Earth to be forcibly disarmed by Caesar and his squad of centurion goons and lame-duck Senators, because doing so would be an initiation of violence. Let’s also not forget that it was the Roman government’s Prefect of Judaea, Pontius Pilate, who ultimately ordered Jesus nailed to a cross to die because he would not obey the establishment’s dictates.
For now, at least the entertainment is good; watching liberals attempt to cram God into their relativist ideology and opportunist methodology is a lot like watching the world famous Uncomfortable Double Virgin Wedding Kiss. Hilarious, ineffective, and not pretty.
