A True Evangelical Conspiracy

It was reported a few days ago that more than 50 “pillars of evangelicalism” had been invited to a private gathering at Wheaton College. When asked what the intention of the event was, Doug Birdsall, an organizer of the exclusive meeting, answered somewhat candidly:

“When you Google evangelicals, you get Trump…When people say what does it mean to be an evangelical, people don’t say evangelism or the Gospel. There’s a grotesque caricature of what it means to be an evangelical.”

Another organizer of the assemblage, Darrell Bock (director of “cultural engagement” at Dallas Theological Seminary), described the get-together using much more intentionally ambiguous terminology:

It is an attempt to try and show how we should be thinking in such a way that our theology is what is the central concern versus our political commitments…We have some people who are going to be doing some presentations about how they see the current situation and we are going to talk about it…The concern is with the church expressing itself clearly about its theological commitment and its theological character in the midst of the environment we are in.

I had the intention of posting an article about another topic altogether, but the disingenuous reactions to Trump’s latest declarations require our attention, scrutiny and even denunciation.

Critics from both the Right and Left have taken to their respective outlets in order to wag their sanctimonious fingers at Trump. Ben Shapiro, over at his own website, claims that Trump is legitimizing the Alt-Right through his latest declarations on the events in Charlottesville. The industrialized Marxist propaganda machine known as the mainstream media, on the other hand, continue to undertake their own Inquisition against the president in hopes of either removing him from office via scandal or by slowly draining his support so that he won’t see office again in 2020. This tactic is made plain by the fact that the press coverage is one where Trump can do no right and if he does something right no credit is given him. Continue reading

The Left’s Monopoly on Violence

Adherents of leftist hate groups, such as Black Lives Matter, La Raza and Antifa continually engage in violent uprisings in order to instigate the “change” they demand. As a defense, we’ve heard Marxist politicians, activists and other assorted demagogues use carefully selected terminology in order to excuse and endorse said violence. Such intentionally ambiguous speech is meant to fool the undiscerning and meant to  protect the rabble-rousers themselves from prosecution for inciting violence. Continue reading
