The assault on Christian culture and Christians themselves continues to advance at a rapid rate.
Last week it was pastors in Houston being ordered to turn over their sermon notes and private communications with their congregations for review by the city’s sodomite mayor.
This week it is a couple in Idaho being ordered to perform sodomite weddings at their wedding chapel or face fines and/or jail. CLICK HERE for more information.
Idaho and Texas may have been the last places we expected such actions to take place, but the common thread is that these incidents occurred in large cities (Coeur d’Alene, Idaho may not seem a large city by some standards, but it is the 7th largest city in Idaho at over 46,000 inhabitants.)
Large cities are a scourge to liberty, whether they be in the North, the South, the East, or the West.
As noted by Thomas Jefferson in 1787: "When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe." (At the time Jefferson made that statement, New York was the largest city in the U.S. and had a population of under 34,000.)
A return to a more Christian and a more agrarian lifestyle is the only hope that we have to pass on a heritage of liberty to our children and grandchildren.
If you have never read I’ll Take My Stand, a collection of essays by twelve Southern Agrarians, first published in 1930, some of you may find it very interesting. I would warn you against the introductions in the reprint editions by Louis Rubin or Susan V. Donaldson (which is particularly bad). They are best ignored.
Sorry, that’s about all the rant I can manage for this week.
STAY IN THE FIGHT!
NEVER GIVE UP!
