You've got to be taughtYeah. Well that was then. This is now. And now it is liberals that have been carefully taught to hate and to fear. Who do they hate? Why Christians, of course. Not to mention Mormons.
To hate and to fear
You've got to be carefully taught.
And the fact is that the person nominated in 2012 for President of the United States by the Republican Party is likely to be either an enthusiastic Christian or a faithful Mormon.
Right now I am just finishing up a Teaching Company lecture series by a Smith College professor, Jay L. Garfield, called The Meaning of Life. This 36 lecture series starts with the Baghavad Gita, continues with Job, Aristotle, the Stoics, Buddhism, Kant, Mill, Nietzsche, Gandhi, and the Dalai Lama.
Notice anything missing? Yeah. Christianity. Not to mention Augustine and Aquinas. How in the world could you do a lecture series on the Meaning of life without including these great Christian thinkers? And how can you look at the modern age by just palming off capitalism with the Marxian put-down of "commodity fetishim?"
I'll tell you how. Liberal anti-Christian bigotry. And we are also talking about liberal anti-womanism. Because Christianity is pre-eminently a girl religion, focusing on the perfect relationship between you and God.
Liberal anti-religious bigotry is going to lead them into the abyss in the next few years. Liberals have systematically demolished the normal human modes of social cooperation: family, religion, God. And they have demolished the substitutes for kin relationship like the Moose and the Elks. People are desperate to find effective ways of social cooperation and belonging.
And now that the liberal system has crashed with Social Security and Medicare on the block, and the Great Recession hammering blacks and the working class, the American people are looking for something better than the cold machanical system of the authoritarian welfare state and its permanent class and race war.
But what will they do when a full-on Christian is a nominee for president of the United States?
