The “Open Minded” Anti-Christian Media

Posted by Larry Miller on March 7, 2012 under Why | Read the First Comment

A while back, I did something unusual for me, I watched the local television news. This is a great source of information about the robberies, rapes and murders in my home town… and it’s kind of depressing since there is not a lot that I can do about most of these personal tragedies. What upset me most, though, was the news feed about the “Christian militia” arrests that had recently taken place. There was an almost gleeful tone to the story about how the federal officers took down these religious zealots intent on overthrowing the government. Folks, this is just the beginning.

To put the story into perspective, all we know is what the formerly main stream media has told us… and all they know is what they’ve gotten from the authorities involved. It may be that these nine or so people in custody presented a real threat to life as we know it, however our government, over many administrations has lied to us so often that it’s difficult to know truth from fiction – and our media watchdogs have turned into lapdogs so we can’t look to them for help in ferreting out the straight story. It may even be that the real threat to our way of life came from the government itself.

Even Rupert Murdoch’s “fair and balanced” FoxNews ran an uncritical story about arrests of “Christian” militia members, so what can we really expect from the likes of CNN and MSNBC. Not knowing these people, I have no idea of what brand of theology they adhere to, so it is impossible to decide if they are persecuted brothers or nut case heretics. I mean, this is the same media that calls Jeremiah Wright and Jim Wallis Christian, and I certainly am not willing to claim any spiritual kinship to them.

This labeling has to be seen in stark contrast to the outright institutional aversion to labeling Nadal Malik Hasan as a Muslim and calling him a terrorist, even though actually gunned down thirty soldiers at Fort Hood in Texas. Today’s media are loath to dispense any negative information about our Islamic neighbors, but are only too happy to say all manner of evil against the Christians in their presence.

To make matters worse, the only non-governmental source cited in the story of the arrests was statistics and opinions of the Southern Poverty Law Center. Consistent with their racist message, these statistics painted a picture of crazy white Christians attempting to keep the country pure in a demented sort of way. This kind of thinking is given currency because it aligns with the thinking of the media elites… and it aligns with the thinking of the present administration.

If indeed those arrested had plans to kill a police officer, then attack many more at the funeral, they needed to be stopped. Most police officers are good people doing their best to insure public safety. They are not responsible for the foolish and repressive laws they are sometimes called upon to enforce. It is those at the upper levels of our government that set the agenda these men and women have to follow and need to be stopped. There are times, however, when it may be necessary for them to follow their own consciences and keep the oaths they have taken, as members members of Oathkeepers have promised to do if anything really wrong is asked of them.

The police are like our military, sometimes directed to do things that may not be right by those with nefarious political agendas and schemes. The police should not be the target since the worst they do to most of us is harass innocent motorists with speeding tickets and the like.

Immediately after the piece ended I sent a email to the news director of the local station, explaining why the piece was wrong on so many levels. I did not, however, threaten to remove his head from his body, like some other groups do when their religion is offended. This is necessary as we have willingly followed the directions to stay hiding behind our church doors for far too long. The secular statists like it that way. We can have our beliefs as long as it does not interfere with their plans for world dominance. They are patient people, they understand that if we are pushed out of the market place of ideas, our numbers will shrink as we shrivel to an ineffective chorus of whiners, and even if we are heard, we will be ignored… maybe even ridiculed

We need to point out that the violence they supposedly fear is coming from within their own ranks as Sarah Palin’s church was torched, someone shot into Eric Cantor’s office and another voiced threats to his life on the internet. It might be noted that the man talking of doing violence to the Republican whip is reportedly an Obama contributor and a Muslim. Odds are you don’t see that on CNN or MCNBC. One could go on with stories about SEIU thugs beating a man giving out Gadsden flags, eggs thrown at tea party buses and the Albemarle County VA Republican headquarters vandalized. Those things are OK since Cantor is Jewish and the rest are just some of those evil people trying to stop “progress”.

I saw a bumper sticker a few days ago that said in bold letters, “PACIFISM WORKS” followed by “if your opponent has morals”. That summed it up beautifully as I have seen no evidence of a moral compass in the Obama administration or any of its minions.

We don’t all have to go out and buy an AK-47 along with a couple of Glocks, then go out and run around in the woods. What we do have to do is speak up when we see this kind of prejudice. Perhaps some sort of weaponry may be helpful, but let us pray it does not come to that. In one sense, what the elites think about us doesn’t matter. But in another, we need to be at the forefront of defending the gospel and standing for the values that brought our country to greatness.

With a mindset that is antithetical to that of Barack Hussein Obama, we need to understand that this battle is not about us and our comfort. We are in a fight for the soul of our country and the souls of our fellow citizens. We cannot let them down.

We have two powerful weapons the other side knows nothing about. The first is prayer to the Creator of the universe who takes a personal interest in each one of us. The second is the truth. Scripture says the truth will set us free. It works for us and it works for those blinded by their Obamessiah… but they will never hear the truth if we sit down and shut up as we have been told to do.

We cannot let the actions of a few people who go off the deep end make us back out of the fight… if indeed, that is what happened. They need our prayers as well. We are all under attack and indications are that it is going to get worse. We have no choice but to join the battle – or surrender. Somehow, I don’t think our Father in heaven would be pleased if we shrunk back from the task at hand and hid our light under a bushel.
