Secular Democrats urge Biden to pounce on U.S. Christianity
A Democratic political action committee representing "secular values" issued a sweeping agenda for Joe Biden to reverse many of President Trump's advances for religious liberty and "restore a vision of constitutional secularism."
It would ban religious organizations from participating in government programs, support governors who want to close down churches amid the COVID pandemic, require new disclosures from churches, overturn religious-rights precedents such as the Hobby Lobby case, prevent mention of creationism in education and work for a "deradicalization" of "white Christian nationalism."
The document declares the "rise of white Christian nationalism is a national security threat."...
"There are, indeed, were we to consider the individuals, many wicked ones, many wicked spirits, in the heavenly or the ethereal places; but they are united in wicked nature, policy, and principle, and they are united also in one head. there is the prince of the devils and of the diabolical kingdom. There is a head of the malignity and of the malignant world; and he has such sway here that he is called the god of this world. Strange that such a knowing spirit should be so implacably incensed against the Almighty and all his interests, when he cannot but know that it must end in his own overthrow and everlasting damnation! How tremendous is the judgment of God upon that wicked one! May the God of the Christian world continually demolish his dominion in this world, and translate souls into the kingdom of his dear Son!" (M.Henry)
" ... according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:"
Carl, I think they were showing up in the millions on Election Day, according to what I see on CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, and MSNBC. According to them, every time President TRump had one of his rallies, these 'secular Dems' were out there filling out their absentee ballots. Every time the President spoke, these news sources were making fun of him and criticizing him so that the Dem Party did not have much campaigning to do at all. No wonder Biden-Que Mala Harris got more votes than Obama.
If these are the "secular Democrats" then who are the Christian Democrats? I sincerely hope to meet a genuine believer who is a registered Democrat so they clearly explain why they vote Democrat. I have heard the explanations of plenty of Democrats (and many Republicans too) who claim to be believers and their explanations doesn't pass the Scripture test nor the Spirit test.
This continues to push our country closer to a civil war. Old ‚Äú hope and light‚ÄĚ Biden sounds like he‚Äôs closer to showing his cards before he can get inaugurated . Letting atheists at the table would only only be a emboldened them much like the LBGQT boot clicking Nazis. What a motto ‚Äú hope and light is best viewed as death and damnation‚ÄĚ.
It's refreshing to hear an educated Doctor expose the technocratic agenda, and not being a part of that- https://m.youtube.com/watch?fbclid=IwAR0NwfENh99zPm1EXteRxcdLb2X8iJi_8CCUZJi6w0-ojdMdapHNh-O8xtI&v=sjYvitCeMPc&noapp=1

Adriel, though your question be rhetorical, the Democrat Party is the political wing of the death culture in the US. They support everything that leads to shortened lives, or no lives at all. They make decisions that lead to and continue war, for it is profitable to their crony corporate financial supporters. They kill babies and old folks. At the same time they make speeches about saving lives. They are of their father the devil. Just to be fair, they aren‚Äôt all like that, but the 99% that are give the rest a bad name.
Biden wouldn‚Äôt have to fake illness. The reason is he displayed it many times in his inability to speak intelligible sentences. At times he was lucid, which might lead one to conclude he‚Äôs on some kind of drug during those lucid times. But his usefulness to the left would likely cease on Inauguration Day.
"Giuliani did in fact present evidence of voter fraud today but many people simply didn‚Äôt want to hear it. He cited multiple Americans, one by name, who have signed sworn affidavits stating that they witness some type of fraud, whether it was pro-Trump ballots being thrown out without cause, ballots being backdated to before the election, poll workers being told not to ask voters for identification, and more. As Giuliani helpfully pointed out, affidavits are considered ‚Äėevidence‚Äô in a court case. Whether you agree or disagree with them is a different question. And it‚Äôs reasonable that not all of the people who signed their names would be willing to go public. The more difficult ‚ÄĒ and crucial ‚ÄĒ question is whether Trump‚Äôs legal team has enough witnesses or other evidence to actually overturn the election in court. That is what journalists should be addressing. But it is simply wrong for the media to assert there is NO evidence of fraud." https://spectator.us/evidence-actually-rudy-giuliani-voter-fraud/

I learned about the Baptist Joint Committee on Public Affairs (now ‚Äúfor Religious Liberty‚ÄĚ), how multiple Baptist denominations and associations came together in Washington for the defense of First Amendment rights and protections. However, from 1979, when fundamentalists gained control of the Southern Baptist Convention, Southern Baptists were not interested in supporting separation of church and state. Once the largest contributor to BJC, by 1991 the SBC had withdrawn all financial support.
We have forgotten our history, that we were once a despised, ridiculed and persecuted people. We and our Southern culture blended seamlessly, as now-retired Baylor history professor Rufus Spain explained in At Ease in Zion,his seminal book on Southern Baptists from 1865 to 1900.
We were wise to abandon our rigid anti-Catholicism, but it seems to me we have merely substituted other immigrant groups for Catholics. We grew too comfortable in our culture as we grew from minority to majority through our evangelistic efforts, and we developed a taste for political power.
Now all that is threatened...

Satan is the god of this world. Only born again believers stand apart.
2 Corinthians 4:4 ‚ÄúIn whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.‚ÄĚ
Look at the persecution that took place shortly after Christ‚Äôs death.
Acts 9: 1 And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, 2 And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.
There is nothing new under the sun.
Ecclesiastes 1:9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
This is why our Lord commanded us to not love this evil world.
1 John 2:15 ‚ÄúLove not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.‚ÄĚ
Our responsibility to this is:
2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.

Without collaborating evidence, this action will probably go nowhere. She should have had a body cam on her or whatever. If this woman happens to be a Catholic, this should make her realize the Catholic Church isn't Christian

A quote from George Orwell seems to fit your comment, John:
‚ÄúSo much of left-wing thought is a kind of playing with fire by people who don‚Äôt even know that fire is hot.‚ÄĚ
What a waste of a God-given life, to devote oneself to attacking God and God's people. Not only that, it is stupidity also, for what is the reward for doing such? Spending eternity in a lake of fire, being continually punished for sin.
