I know a lot of Left-Wing "Progressive" folks who "self-identify" as Christian's who will complain to high heaven whenever a Reprobate Party politician cynically co-opt's the Evangelical Christian Right!
I'll even go so far as to admit they have a point when they note that the "politico" is more than likely just a hypocrite and/or a charlatan who doesn't really believe for a minute the thing they're saying they are for and/or against and are simply just pulling on the people's heartstrings to win their vote.
I will even take it one step further and say they're also correct for wanting to admonish the so-called "Right-Wing" believers who foolishly put their trust into a person, or a party, or a "system" (Capitalism over Socialism) when they should be abandoning all of the above and putting their trust in God instead.
I just wish they would do the same when it comes to one of their own Demagogue Party politicos whenever they do the exact same thing like you see right here in the attached video.
That ultimately leads to my question and I ask it of both the progressive left and evangelical right folks who call themselves Christians. I'll even throw it out there for those of you who maybe don't believe or, given the times we find ourselves in, are at least asking questions and just want to think about it for a while.
Which "God" (Jesus) are you really worshiping?
Is it the progressive leftist bearded Marxist all you need is love John Lennon wannabe Jesus, the right-wing gun-toting bible-thumping toxic masculinity John Wayne loving Jesus or the real Jesus who is/was none of the above?
Choose you this day whom you will serve!
I'll leave it at that or as some of my friends might put it. "That's my story and I'm sticking to it."
When my Cult of "Woke" friends and relatives ask me "Who radicalized you?" I usually answer that question this way:
I'm not radicalized and I haven't changed! However, you and your cultish peers, in your quest for idiot-illogical purity, instead have either moved radically to the left and/or you've pushed those not idiot-illogically pure enough for your standards out of your tribe. Making matters worse is, you're too "Woke" to realize it! This is a common phenomenon with the left in particular as they always eat their own. Just look at how they're reacting to people like Eric Clapton and Nicki Minaj as of late. Neither of them are in any way shape or form rabid right-wing conservatives. Far from it, they simply strayed from the Left's approved party line narratives on one issue and now they are anathema to their own tribe.
As for me, "I don't join cults!" Now I've heard many leftists "use," think "appropriate" that same line but what they mean by it and what I mean by it are two different things. When a Cult of "Woke" zombie says it, they mean I'm NOT a Republican, Conservative, Tory, or even a Libertarian. What I mean by that is: I'm not a member of nor a supporter of any party and I don't vote because I know the system has been rigged from the get-go. If anything, 2016 and 2020 proved that beyond the shadow of a doubt. Further, the lesser of two evils is still evil and finally, you cannot solve spiritual problems with secular solutions.
But unlike virtually all of my left wing, and arguably some of my right wing friends, I believe in freedom of religion. Please, feel free to worship any (little "g") god(s) of your choice. For too many people on both the left and the right, please understand that your politics has become your religion. Just know that one day, you'll have to answer for your decisions. We all will!
By all means, feel free to make your own choices and be ready to take responsibility for YOUR DECISIONS. All I ask is that you think before making yours, choose wisely and have the grace to allow others to make theirs and then leave them the heck alone!
My Two-¥en worth.
The great error we made when we replaced the clergy with "scientists" as the "Keepers of Truth" in Western Civilization is failing to understand that being human, they are susceptible to the same frailties. Just because someone has an M.D., Ph.D. or any number of letters and/or titles associated with their name doesn't indicate that the person is moral, wise, honorable (even though we often call them that) or even smart. All it really is, anymore, is an indication that an awful lot of money was spent, in many cases wasted, on a process some people call an education. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-51288854
