Letter to the Editor: The Left despises Christianity

Loading…

Saturday, February 24, 2018

I'll be the first to admit that I fall way short in my Christian faith, but I do recognize Christian bashing when I see it. In a recent letter by socialist worshiper and leftist Ms. Koo, she mocks and slanders opinion writers to this forum as "holier than thou" for acknowledging their Christian faith as racists, hypocrites, xenophobes, and misogynists.

An attack on one Christian is an attack on all Christians, and in turn the 83 percent of Americans who identify themselves as Christians.

Her bigoted remarks against Christians, and her leftist secular progressive counterparts in this country are responsible for "Christian shaming" and double standards when it comes to criticizing and condemning Christianity in this country. Both are hypocrites when making defamatory sneers against Christians, yet I would be labeled Islamophobic if I said anything critical about Islam.

Christians have witnessed a progression of public condemnations on their faith. In 2006, Barack Obama trivialized Christians by saying "we cling to our guns and religion" followed by "whatever we once were we are no longer a Christian nation". Just last week hateful bigot Joy Behar attacked VP Mike Pence, calling him "mentally ill" because he listens to Jesus Christ. If the left considers listening to Jesus as mentally ill, then others making that list would include Oprah, Martin Luther King, Billy Graham, and Pope John Paul II. Once again,if Joy Behar said the same thing about Islam everyone would be screaming "Islamophobia".

Right alongside with the secular progressives attacking Christians is the Southern Poverty Law Center, a supposedly nonprofit left wing activist organization funded by uber socialist George Soros. The SPLC has designated Christians and those with traditional Christian views as "hate groups". In 2015, side by side with Neo-Nazi's and the KKK it placed Dr. Ben Carson on their "extremist watch list". The left despises Christianity and wants Christians to bend to their radical views. In a 2016 speech Hillary Clinton expressed her anti-religion bias by saying "deep seated cultural codes and religious beliefs" have to be changed.Others on her staff derided Catholics and evangelical Christians for their "backwards" views. The direction this country is headed should strike fear in the heart of every Christian. I refuse to listen to these anti-Christian zealots like Ms Koo, and will adhere to Matthew 4:4, "Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God".
