Neocons target gullible Christians
by Don Hank June 20, 2015
In a nutshell, the atheistic ideology of Neoconservatism is why America did not change for the better when the GOP took over both houses and why a GOP president will not restore our republic. Neoconservatism is an ideology of the Left mimicking conservatism. It pays lip service to Christian ideals but for the sole purpose of deceiving Americans to do its bidding. The idea that the superior man must rule over the inferior man is the centerpiece of Third Reich philosophy which also taught that Christians must be used to implement its policies. But the “Christianity” of the Third Reich was a cynical distortion, like the “Christianity” created in the Neocon image.
An Alternet article titled “Leo Strauss’ philosophy of deception,” names Leo Strauss as an early precursor and Irving Kristol as the founder of Neoconservatism:
Among other neoconservatives, Irving Kristol, dubbed the “godfather” of the movement,
“has long argued for a much greater role for religion in the public sphere.
At the same time, he stressed that religion was for the masses alone; the rulers need not be bound by it. Indeed, it would be absurd if they were, since the truths proclaimed by religion were “a pious fraud.” [my highlighting]
“According to Shadia Drury, who teaches politics at the University of Calgary, Strauss believed that “those who are fit to rule are those who realize there is no morality and that there is only one natural right – the right of the superior to rule over the inferior.”
This dichotomy requires “perpetual deception” between the rulers and the ruled.”
How is this different from Nazism? How does it square with what Christ taught? It is a cynical trick to enlist the aid of Christians in implementing sinister plots antagonistic to Christ’s teachings.
The proof is not in the upfront idea being sold to the unwitting public. The proof is in the outcome.
GW Bush told the public that he was a born-again Christian (just as Carter had done). Then he proceeded to lead us into a war with questionable justification.
Within one week of our “victory” in Iraq, the Assyrian Christians, who had lived side by side with Muslims for 2 millennia, started to leave the country. Only a small remnant is left, and they are now being slaughtered by ISIS, a creation of these same Neocons (as exemplified by John McCain) working in concert with the Saudis, who ban Christianity in their homeland. And the Left blames Christians for the overall failure to keep the peace in Iraq. But behind these Christians were the Neoconservatives orchestrating the evil.
Be gentle as doves but wise as serpents.
American Christians have pretty much got that first part down pat. The second part is more of a challenge, but we owe it to ourselves and our Lord to focus on regaining that wisdom! After all, obeying only half a commandment makes people half-Christians.
But there is no such thing as half a heaven or half a hell. It’s either all or nothing with the Lord.
Matthew 10:16 ¶Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
