Hate U.S. Christians
By Dorothy Anne Seese
liberal British papers think the US Christian coalition is dumbo. At least
one French correspondent targeted the "Christian right" as the source
of the Bush victory, opining that this unknown segment of American life, which
has been around since the founding of our nation, is peculiarly out of touch
with the rest of the world. The rest of Europe is only angrier at the
post-election verdict that it wasn't the war in Iraq, it wasn't even our tanking
economy that gave George W. Bush a second term in office. It was the
people who value American tradition, personal liberty, personal and private
identity, and above all, their Christian faith that put Bush into office for a
second term, a second try at leveling out the morals of the declining nation.
enough, when it comes to our value system, love of "the old ways" of
morality and identity, and distrust of entangling alliances with socialists,
that's exactly where Christians stand. When it comes to having the Supreme
Court rewrite the First Amendment to suit the advocates of the wholly secular
state where man is his own little god, Christians disavow that position wholly
and vehemently. And to the amazement of the European socialists, the
American socialists, the anti-God groupies and the rest of the world that was
watching our election, there's a lot more of us than showed up in Election 2000.
George W. Bush won a second term without my vote because I'm an even more
outspoken advocate of cleaning up America's act from Hollywood to Vermont, from
Miami to Tacoma.
does the government know about you?
of our mainstream churches may have jumped on the liberal bandwagon, but not all
their members have taken the leap of nonfaith with them. The Church
Universal has had to put up with false teachers since the days of the Apostles,
something that shows no sign of leveling off or disappearing. Charlatans
and false teachers will abound, but the word bound into a single volume we call
the Holy Bible is still our guide and our source of hope.
media just got caught with their knowledge of the power of the Christian right
underestimated and their opinion of the Church batting zero at a football game.
I reckon that as journalists, they could have asked?
isn't to say that Bush the Second has a mandate from God or from voters, for
that matter. A president was elected for a second term because the trashy
morals of the entertainment world, and the jaded secularism of the news media
got little of what they expected from puny, ignorant "Christian
Hillbillies." Try and tell them one man and God is a majority and
they will laugh. Make a fool of the pollsters, they go looking in the
wastebaskets for notes, polls and quotes to try and explain it all.
hear of faith? If you hadn't, you have. The Christian right had no
faith in John Kerry, and not nearly as much as they would like to put in Bush,
but they chose the man whom they perceived to represent more of the old values
that we want to retain, not the "new world morality" of Europe's
secular environment and socialistic form of government that is rapidly merging
into a single European nation. Maybe Europeans won't like it so much when
they have no idea what nationality they are ... and the Land of Utopia finds its
Trojan Horse is standing in their midst even now in the form of the European
you don't have God, what do you have? Well, you have you, and you might
shall pass away.
Bush has certainly done things to alienate many Christians, and he is president
of a nation where not all people are Christian or wish to be, he is deemed by
most of the Christians I know to be far superior to a declared liberal (who
denied it when convenient) with a pro-choice, pro-socialist, liberal and
revisionist view of America. It's safe to say the traditionalists won, and
America's heartland and South, along with the intermountain west, are still very
horrifies Canadians, Germans and French to see that America still hangs onto
"the old values" like we do. Why? Because our strength is in the
very God that these others deny, and will be as long as so many remain
traditional in the faith and in values.
having said all this, the Church has not done its job in America as it should
have over the past half century. If anything, the churches have been much too
"tolerant" of bad doctrines and bad politics. Many of us on the
far right disavowed the invasion of Iraq and were ignored or lumped in with the
socialist left because the neo-con establishment didn't wish to acknowledge that
some of us who were Republicans left the fold over that war, deeming it an
ultimate failure of diplomacy at the point and time of the invasion.

also an opportunity for Christians to assert their First Amendment rights that
have been trampled on since 1962 by the Supreme Court.
yes, we do still need to seal our borders. With Canadians waxing hateful
in their native land north of us, it appears time to seal both borders until we
can assess just how large a threat the vociferous and hateful group of Canadians
pose. America needs all its strength now, with a world against it.
And we need our productivity back whether anyone in our government will admit it
or keep on dodging the issue.
Christians are good prayer warriors. But Americans are good warriors when
given a fighting chance to do the job right. It just has to be the right
next four years should be interesting, to say the least.
