The Morality of Liberals – a Deeper Look at Insanity

Published

Morality is a heresy.

During a course in an Eastern Orthodox Christian seminary, this author quietly observed as the course instructor wrote this very bold claim.

It was interesting to watch – or rather, feel – the reactions in the room, both from myself and from my brother students in the class.  There was a sense of surprise, and maybe even mild consternation, at this seemingly bold comment.

The instructor who wrote this axiomatic statement was himself a surprise, since he was an Archbishop in the Orthodox Church.  One would have expected that such an authoritative figure as an archbishop would have plenty to say about the validity of “moral living.”

In fact, the archbishop made an interesting and very relevant point.  Morality itself is falsely understood.

What is Morality?

Morality is defined as:

  1. principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior.
  2. a particular system of values and principles of conduct.
  3. the extent to which an action is right or wrong.

But for the Christian believer, morality as defined here is simply not enough.  For the American up until the 1980’s or so, our predominantly Christian worldview guided our understanding of morality.

Morality taken only by itself IS heresy – heresy here defined as dissent or deviation from a dominant theory, opinion, or practice; an opinion, doctrine, or practice contrary to the truth or to generally accepted beliefs or standards.

The reason morality alone is insufficient is because morality is only shaped by the worldview that generates it.

The Western world used to hold a predominantly Christian worldview.  This shaped our standards of what is considered “right” and “wrong” and this set of concepts guided our lives for thousands of years.

Want Insanity? Just Add Liberalism

But now, we have a “new” morality that has gradually taken over. This is the morality of the secular humanist, a.k.a. the liberal.

This morality is arbitrary, whimsical, and unstable.  In other words, whoever decides to can make a point that some action is “moral” or “immoral.” and then parade this term around and folks will fall right in line with the statement.

Examples of “immorality” we have seen alleged in the last year or two include:

  • Donald Trump – in person and in deeds. For some people, he IS immorality.
  • Christian refusal to abet homosexual marriages, e.g. the “gay wedding cake” stories
  • Not to accept (human induced) “climate change” as a reality
  • Tax cuts for wealthy Americans (wealthy is anyone making more than you)
  • Removing “net neutrality”
  • It is immoral for others to be wealthy (but if you are it is okay)
  • It is immoral to talk about one’s faith in Jesus Christ in the public forum because you might traumatize someone.
  • It is immoral for men to be attracted to women.  (But women chasing men is okay and if the men complain they are just lying.)
  • It is immoral to have a Sport Utility Vehicle (unless you are a Democrat or liberal in which case you are elite and exempt from this.)
  • It is immoral to criticize Islamism and bad behavior on the part of radicalized jihadists (but speaking badly about Christianity is actually one’s moral obligation.)

The list goes on and on.  Most recently we watched the effect of mere allegations of “immoral behavior” against the Alabama judge and Senatorial candidate Roy Moore.  The allegations alone prevented his victory in that state’s special election because a rumor of immoral behavior, tied to some rather strange stories about him pursuing relationships with young ladies far younger than he led to the unsaid assertion that Judge Moore was really a pervert, and not a Christian man.

The present-day assertions of “morality” or its opposite are quite widely removed from the traditional  values that not only America, but indeed all of the Christian world, once held dear.  Instead of an objective Authority that we felt we needed to answer to, now we assign god-like authority to people in power, who then often make up whatever moral code suits them for that moment.  The results of this are tragic – division and opposition of sexes, denial of reality, greatly empowered slander and gossip, and division, anger, even hatred, ginned up for no real reason, but felt very strongly, and even acted upon, by various people and groups.

The First Step in a Cure is to Define the Problem

There is a word for this kind of behavior, the throwing of gossip, accusations, and the mixture of lies with truth to destroy other people, to set them at odds against one another.  And there is a ruling identity who inspires all such behavior.

In coming pieces this author hopes to further expose the fallacy of the “morality” of the secular humanist.  We hope to expose this darkness, so that our readers might shake this burden off and recover.

We owe it to ourselves, to our families and children and to our country to take some time and consider the real Truth.  That Truth is the one who will set us free of this mess.

“That Truth is the one who will set us free of this mess.” Uh oh. Red Flag Alert. “Truth” with a capital “T.” One right answer. Brace yourself for yet another externally imposed dogmatism…

Maybe he’s referring to this wise Proverb; “While their hatred may be concealed by trickery, their wrongdoing will be exposed in public.” It does seem to say that we have a duty to make wrongdoing public….truthfully….and that as we do so, the lies and hate of nihilism in government will be exposed for the evil it contains. Censorship is the Christians biggest enemy, it prevents the wise (and there are many among us) from finding truth to discern right and wrong.

Not just Truth with a capital T; but who with what should have been a capital W.

“I am the Way, the Truth ( sorry ) and the Life; no man cometh unto the Father but by Me.”

And upon this Rock, I rest my eternal soul.

Introducing the Jesuit foot soldiers of the NWO —
“You have been taught to plant insidiously the seeds of jealousy and hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at peace, and to incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries that were independent and prosperous.”

ABC’s Ted Koppel admits mainstream media bias against Trump [Video]

The mainstream news media has traded informing the public for indoctrinating them, but the change got called out by an “old-school” journo.

Seraphim Hanisch

Published

Fox News reported on March 19th that one of America’s most well-known TV news anchors, Ted Koppel, noted that the once-great media outlets like The New York Times and The Washington Post, have indeed traded journalistic excellence for hit pieces for political purposes. While political opinions in the mainstream press are certainly within the purview of any publication, this sort of writing can hardly be classified as “news” but as “Opinion” or more widely known, “Op-Ed.”

We have two videos on this. The first is the original clip showing the full statement that Mr. Koppel gave. It is illuminating, to say the least:

Tucker Carlson and Brit Hume, a former colleague of Mr. Koppel, added their comments on this admission in this second short video piece, shown here.

There are probably a number of people who have watched this two-year onslaught of slander and wondered why there cannot be a law preventing this sort of misleading reporting. Well, Russia passed a law to stop it, hitting dishonest media outlets in their pocketbook. It is a smart law because it does not advocate imprisonment for bad actors in the media, but it does fine them.

Going to prison for reporting “the truth” looks very noble. Having to pay out of pocket for it is not so exciting.

Newsmax and Louder with Crowder both reported on this as well.

This situation of dishonest media has led to an astonishing 77% distrust rating among Americans of their news media, this statistic being reported by Politico in 2018. This represents a nearly diametric reversal in trust from the 72% trust rating the country’s news viewers gave their news outlets in 1972. These statistics come from Gallup polls taken through the years.

Lori Loughlin’s daughter was aboard USC official’s yacht in Bahamas when mom was charged

Lori Loughlin’s daughter was on the yacht of USC’s Board of Trustees when her mom was accused in scheme.

Lori Loughlin’s daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli was spending spring break on a University of Southern California official’s yacht when her mother was accused Tuesday of involvement in a college admissions scheme, reports said.

Giannulli, 19, was on Rick Caruso’s luxury yacht Invictus in the Bahamas, a report said. Caruso is chairman of USC’s Board of Trustees.

Giannulli, who currently attends USC, was with Caruso’s daughter Gianna and several other friends, the outlet reported.

“My daughter and a group of students left for spring break prior to the government’s announcement yesterday,” Caruso told TMZ. “Once we became aware of the investigation, the young woman decided it would be in her best interests to return home.”

Loughlin’s daughter has since returned to Los Angeles to face the allegations that could result in her getting expelled from USC.

USC’s Board of Trustees will not decide the status of Giannulli and the other students involved in the case, but rather, the university’s president will make the decisions, according to TMZ.

Business deals in jeopardy?

Giannulli is a YouTube beauty vlogger and social media star, but in the midst of her mother’s charges, she may lose the lucrative brand-sponsorship deals she has landed over the years, Variety reported.

HP, having cut ties with Giannulli, said in a statement, “HP worked with Lori Loughlin and Olivia Jade in 2017 for a one-time product campaign. HP has removed the content from its properties.”

Giannulli also cut brand deals with partners including Amazon, Dolce & Gabbana, Lulus, Marc Jacobs Beauty, Sephora, Smashbox Beauty Cosmetics, Smile Direct Club, Too Faced Cosmetics, Boohoo, and Unilever’s TRESemmé, the report said.

Giannulli’s rep declined to comment, Variety reported. Estée Lauder Companies, which owns Smashbox and Too Faced, also declined to comment, while the other brands or companies the magazine reached out to did not immediately respond to their requests for comment.

$250M Lawsuit Against CNN Imminent; Covington High MAGA Student Suffered “Direct Attacks”

CNN will be the second MSM outlet sued over their reporting of the incident, after Sandmann launched a $250 million lawsuit against the Washington Post in late February.

CNN is about to be sued for more than $250 million for spreading fake news about 16-year-old Covington High School student Nicholas Sandmann.

Sandmann was viciously attacked by left-leaning news outlets over a deceptively edited video clip from the January March for Life rally at the Lincoln Memorial, in which the MAGA-hat-wearing teenager appeared to be mocking a Native American man beating a drum. Around a day later, a longer version of the video revealed that Sandmann did absolutely nothing wrong – after the media had played judge, jury and executioner of Sandmann’s reputation.

CNN will be the second MSM outlet sued over their reporting of the incident, after Sandmann launched a $250 million lawsuit against the Washington Post in late February.

Speaking with Fox News host Mark Levin in an interview set to air Sunday, Sandmann’s attorney, L. Lin Wood, said “CNN was probably more vicious in its direct attacks on Nicholas than The Washington Post. And CNN goes into millions of individuals’ homes. It’s broadcast into their homes.”

They really went after Nicholas with the idea that he was part of a mob that was attacking the Black Hebrew Israelites, yelling racist slurs at the Black Hebrew Israelites,” continued Wood. “Totally false. Saying things like that Nicholas was part of a group that was threatening the Black Hebrew Israelites, that they thought it was going to be a lynching.”

Why didn’t they stop and just take an hour and look through the internet and find the truth and then report it?” Wood asked. “Maybe do that before you report the lies. They didn’t do it. They were vicious. It was false. CNN will be sued next week, and the dollar figure in the CNN case may be higher than it was [against] The Washington Post.”
