*Sigh* No, Being A Christian Does Not Require You Meekly Submit To Leftist Tyranny…

I’m glad someone else is pointing this out.

If you read the scriptures, you will find that JESUS CHRIST is not a wimp!

He was constantly yelling at people for their lack of faith, calling the religious establishment vipers and worse, and scaring the heck out of demons.

He personally laid a serious butt-whoopin’ on some people in the Temple and when He returns, His robes will be stained with the blood of His enemies.

When it was time to leave the earth, He ordered his followers to arm themselves.

Jesus Cleanses Temple

Christians have an obligation and a duty to fight evil.

First, the oldest but best Christian joke in the world (The second best is the one about how what was going on in Gomorrah was so bad nobody will talk about it): There’s this Christian guy who gets on his roof to escape a flood. He prays to God to save him. A rowboat comes by. He says, “No thanks, God will save me.” The rowboat leaves, the water rises, and he drowns. He appears before the Lord and says, “But I prayed for you to save me!” and God says, “I sent you a rowboat.”

Donald Trump is religious Americans’ improbable rowboat, and I have $20 that says some obtuse idiot is going to write a column, or at least fire off a tweet, saying “Schlichter thinks Trump was sent by God.” Mark my words. If there’s anything I know, it’s what to expect from dummies on the web.

There are a lot of people frustrated that Christians back Trump and refuse to let his personal life be used as a wedge to pry off their support. They are mad that Christians are not playing their role as defined by their enemies. Christians are supposed to be scandalized and give up and lose.

But they won’t.

Now, let’s understand this basic concept – Jesus was not some sort of whiny wimp who refused to confront the establishment and took comfort in his own righteousness while leaving others to do the heavy lifting.

Jesus made people angry, because that’s what happens when you defy bad people.

Being a Christian does not mean that you have to shrug and let the likes of Hillary Clinton be elected so she and her minions can fire up her anti-faith pogrom against those of us who dare worship God and not the elite she represents. Maybe you didn’t notice, but they do not accept the concept that we have any legitimate interests or rights.

They hate us. And, if we are weak and stupid enough to allow them to take power, they will act on their bigotry and prejudices.

Baking cakes is only the start.

Resistance is not merely an option. It is a duty.

And resistance to evil – because the desire to suppress our faith is evil – is not somehow unchristian because it can be aesthetically displeasing.

Fighting back is not always pretty.

Jesus cleared the temple of moneychangers. He made a mess and got people angry. He didn’t sit on the sidelines and write ponderous articles lambasting the people tossing over the tables because “We’re better than that.”

Everyone seems to want to tell Christians that they are obligated to give in. There’s always some IPA-loving hipster who writes video game reviews when he’s not sobbing alone in the dark because no one loves him tweeting “Oh, that’s real Christian!” whenever a conservative fights back. I know that when I need theological clarification, I seek out the militant atheist who thinks Christ was a socialist and believes that the Golden Rule is that Christians are never allowed to never offend anyone.

Yeah, no, not a thing.

And then there are the members of the Fredocon contingent, the prissy whiners with their principles and their posturing who think that every time it is revealed that Donald Trump is exactly who we all know Donald Trump is we have to go Full Footloose John Lithgow.

Sorry, but we never go Full Lithgow.

Let me tear the scales from your eyes, Team Holier-Than-Thou. We know exactly who Donald Trump is.

He’s imperfect, like everyone but you guys.

Interestingly, there is some evidence he is experiencing something of a religious awakening, but you in the Churchlady Right reject that possibility – a unique take on Christianity, but you do you.

Regardless, we totally, completely, and fully understand Trump’s personal failings. And, as Salena Zito notes in her new book The Great Revolt, we don’t care.

We don’t care because the culture has established new rules and we refuse to unilaterally disarm in the face of them. Also, we understand that if those who imposed the new rules never pay a price for them they will never have an incentive to change them back again.

We don’t care because of the hypocrisy. Spare us the lectures from the party that gave us Floatin’ Teddy, “Put Some Ice On That” Bill, Fernophile Harvey and Slappy Schneiderman.

We don’t care because we are done seeing our morality weaponized against us. The Piouscons keep confusing passivity with morality. Look at how George W. Bush took the high road and let himself be abused all through his term and Obama’s too. That didn’t work out so well. Oh, and the way he suddenly discovered his stones after Trump got elected and trashed both the President and the those of us who spent years defending him when he would not defend himself made Team Turn-The-Other-Cheek look like a bunch of hypocritical jerks.

But most of all, we don’t care because our priority is not whether Donald Trump acted like, well, Donald Trump. This is about survival, specifically our survival as a free people able to live, speak, and worship as we please. Maybe you missed it, being too busy pointing out the splinters in our eyes while logs resided in yours, but this is an existential struggle between our side and the people who want to crush us.

Yeah, crush us. How do we know? They tell us.

Maybe you are willing to bake a cake before you soil your dainty digits, but I’m not. I’m doing what adults do, making a choice. My choice – and yours – is between A) the imperfect human being who has a nearly perfect record of defending our religious and other liberties, or B) the imperfect human beings who have a nearly perfect record of attacking our religious and other liberties.

Choose one. And not choosing is choosing Option B.

Trump may provoke a whole bunch of “Oh, well, I nevers,” but he’s been there for us. I only supported him after Ted Cruz dropped out, and only because the alternative was worse. But he surprised me. He’s performed beyond my wildest dreams.

If you had had your way, Hillary Clinton would be president because Trump is icky.

Let’s leave aside Hillary’s own manifest personal ickiness and examine the outcome you would prefer, the defeat of Trump and the success of the Democrats. But Stormy? No, but Gorsuch. You can deny it all you want, but when you make a choice you choose the outcomes that follow.

Your choice means even more dead babies.

Your choice means even more oppression of the religious.

Your choice means our voices being silenced by government, corporations, academia, and the culture.

Well, maybe not your voices, at least not right away. The tyrants usually wait until the collaborators have done their dirty work before finishing them off last. And what’s funny is that when we fighters are gone and the left turns on you, you’ll be surprised.

Supporting Trump does not mean validating everything he allegedly did or does – though it is fun to do it once in a while to watch the liberals and the Cruise Ship Crew freak out.

Supporting Trump means making a choice not to submit.

Is that immoral?

No.

You see, there is no combination of facts, rules, obligations, or commandments that requires us to take actions that will lead us to submitting to tyranny. I will not submit.

I choose Trump, because Trump, while being an imperfect vessel, indisputably constitutes the clearest path to maintaining the freedom with which our Creator endowed us.

Stop being a bunch of sissies and jump in the rowboat.

  1. That was a super long article that I believe I can sum up very quickly. 1) you think Trump will do what god wants, 2) being a hypocrite is okay in this instance because of #1, and. 3) because democrats do what you hate, they have nothing to say when you do what you hate.
    My response is therefore very quick. 1) no, you really don’t know what god wants. 2) it’s not okay to be a hypocrite, and 3) it’s still not okay to be a hypocrite.

    1. I actually DO know exactly what GOD wants…He wrote it down and carefully preserved it for me (and you) to read.
      The article was commentary by Mr. Schlichter, a veteran whose writing style I admire. I’m not seeing ANY hypocrisy, at all. Please point it out to me.
      It seems to me that the failing of the left to understand scripture and a relationship with the Creator always hobbles them in such arguments. They try and hold Christians and Jews accountable to what THEY perceive GOD’s will is, and what THEY think living a “godly” life is…But lacking understanding, they are simply wrong.
      When they cry “hypocrisy,” President Trump had sex with an adult film star and believers still support him…They fail to grasp that:
      1. No-one believes he did it. Open your eyes and look at her, she’s in no way attractive enough to appeal to him. Compare her with the women he is known to have had a relationship with, and there’s simply no way he would sully himself with such.
      2. The Christian GOD invented sex, and gave it to us as a gift. Christians and Jews have sex…freaky, hot sex…all the time. We’re not squeamish about it.
      3. Even if he had slummed around with “Stormy,” he can simply ask for forgiveness in Christ. Once he does, all is forgiven and forgotten. There’s no record of it occurring before GOD, and if’s brought up, JESUS his advocate would stand and say, “Yes, that charge is true, but I paid the price for this on the cross.” And he’s free of it.
      I read the article as “stop backing down because some idiot claims to be offended. They’re evil, and we should seek the sound of their wailing in horror. That’s what demons do when they encounter righteousness.”

        1. Nowhere.
          But nowhere is that implied, by anyone…Ever.
          I suppose you could make that argument by extension…
          It was either Mr. Trump or Mrs. Clinton. It’s obvious that she’s evil and only motivated by a desire to increase her families power, control, and wealth.
          I think some have stated that Mr. Trump was raised up for this moment in history, and that’s very possible. I don’t know of any place where it was said that the Bible commands it. Certainly not here, at this site.

          1. Oh, okay, because when I asked, you said you knew exactly what god wanted because it was written down. And I only know of the Bible as being attributed to the word of god in Christianity.
            So are you saying there is somewhere else that the word of god is written, or are you backing down from the statement that you know exactly what god wants because it’s written down?

            1. First, thanks for commenting!
              I said, clearly, that I know the will of GOD.
              It’s written down for all mankind to know it. “Bible” means book. We tend to refer to it as the “Holy Scriptures,” which means Holy, set apart, or dedicated writings.
              Not sure where you’re getting I’m backing down, or where I claimed the Word of the Almighty said to vote for President Trump.
              So:
              1. Yes, I hold the Holy Scriptures (or The Bible if you prefer) to be the absolute inspired word of GOD.
              2. Nowhere have I claimed, nor did the article claim, that it commands a vote for Mr. Trump.
              3. I haven’t heard anyone else claim that either.
              Still waiting for you to back up your claim of hypocrisy…

              1. Thanks, Frank. I think I may have misunderstood what you personally have claimed, and what you have re-blogged.
                Therefore, I may have assumed it was you that supported Trump based on your knowledge of the will of god.
                I also may have incorrectly attributed to you specifically, and not a re-blog, of the absolutely hypocritical judgement between Trump and any of his predecessors or potential candidates. It must have been the original blogger that admitted it was hypocritical but didn’t care.
                Therefore, I will defer to your own comment on the will of God in reference to Trump, helping the needy, hypocracy, abortion, religious oppression, etc.

  2. Too bad that even the religion does not guarantee anything those days – especially in Europe. As a Catholic, I’m deeply disgusted by hippie-esque HERESY corrupting the entire (once great) Church, like some kind of mental disease epidemics.
