Guilty Mark Sanford, Abused Sarah Palin etc  etc - - Conservative leadership fading?

By L Tyler

They are falling like a string of dominos, Governors Sanford, Palin and a number of other Republican leaders, many of them claiming to be Christians. There is no commanding figure ready and able to lead the GOP. It's like the opposition to Obama is being neutralized or removed. I marveled at the blind love, devotion and herd effect for Obama; how his falsehoods were dismissed as unimportant; how his controversial associations were ignored; how one with no record of leadership could become such a leader and wondered if it was a function of 2 Thess 2, i.e.
"10 And by unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing because they did not welcome the Truth but refused to love it that they might be saved.  11 Therefore God sends upon them a misleading influence, a working of error and a strong delusion to allow them to believe what is false, 12 In order that all may be judged and condemned who did not believe in [who refused to adhere to, trust in, and rely on] the Truth, but [instead] took pleasure in unrighteousness."

It's as if God  has removed the moral lighthouses and has cut America loose to go the direction that the majority wants, which is their own way - amorality, immorality, atheism, humanism, abortion, pornography, profanity, vulgarity - and not Jesus' Way, so that the justification for catastrophic judgment on America would be apparent to and understood by all.

Ezek 14:12 The word of the Lord came [again] to me, saying,  13 Son of man, when a land sins against Me by treacherously and grievously doing wrong, [acting] without permission, and I stretch out My hand against it and break its staff of bread and send famine upon it and cut off from it man and beast, . . . 15 If I cause ferocious and evil wild animals to pass through the land and they ravage and bereave it, and it becomes desolate so that no man may pass through because of the beasts; . . .  17 Or if I bring a sword upon that land and say, Sword, go through the land, so that I cut off man and beast from it, . . . 19 Or if I send a pestilence into that land and pour out My wrath upon it in blood, to cut off from it man and beast,  20 Though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live, says the Lord God, they would deliver neither son nor daughter; they would but deliver their own lives by their [God given] righteousness [granted by God for their faith in Him]

No one can blame Sarah Palin for resigning as Governor given the facts that [1] Sarah was forced to spend 80% of her time defending herself against legal attacks; [2] The Alaskan government had to spend 2 million dollars defending her; and [3] Sarah and her family are now 500 thousand dollars in debt to lawyers because of unwarranted and groundless attacks on her and her character.  If my employment or position was putting my family $500K in debt to lawyers, I would quit that employment/position in a heartbeat. Can you imagine how crushing the burden of that debt can be for a middle class family like the Palin's. If it were my family we would have to declare bankruptcy. There is no question that Sarah Palin and all Bible believing and Jesus obeying Christian are the objects of attack because of their acceptance of God's Word re creation, morality, homosexuality, God, Love, Truth, enlghtenment and enduring Life.

Consider this comparison of the homosexual, atheist, secularist and humanist attacks on Christians to the Nazi attacks on Christians.
From Scott Lively's essay:
" . . . The probable reason for Hitler's attack on Christianity was his perception that it alone had the moral authority to stop the Nazi movement. But Christians stumbled before the flood of evil. As Poliakov notes, "[W]hen moral barriers collapsed under the impact of Nazi preaching...the same anti-Semitic movement that led to the slaughter of the Jews gave scope and license to an obscene revolt against God and the moral law. An open and implacable war was declared on the Christian tradition...[which unleashed] a frenzied and unavowed hatred of Christ and the Ten Commandments" (Poliakov:300)."
"Scott Lively is co-author of The Pink Swastika: Homosexuals and the Nazi Party (Keizer, Oregon: Founders Publishing Company, 1995). The Pink Swastika is available by calling 1-800-828-2290. Price is $11.95 including shipping. (About 70kB)"

The comparison and parrallels that I see: . . . The probable reason for the homosexuals', atheists', secularists' and humanists' attack on Christianity in America is their perception that it alone had the moral authority to stop the homosexual, atheist, secularist and humanist  Christless and amoral movement. But Christians stumbled before the flood of evil. As moral barriers collapse under the impact of homosexual, atheist, secularist and humanist  preaching...the same anti-Semitic movement that led to the atheistic, evolutionist and materialist Nazis and their slaughter of the Jews gives scope and license to the homosexual, atheist, secularist and humanist  obscene revolt against Jesus and the moral law. An open and implacable war was declared on the Christian tradition...which has unleashed a frenzied and unavowed hatred of Christ, the Bible and Christians.


"Speechless: Silencing the Christians
by Rev. Donald Wildmon
" . . . the Christian bashers: an unsavory alliance . . .  waging a full-throttle unholy war on Christianity. Wildmon explains in this shocking book what this unlikely anti- Christian coalition wants -- and why they must push Christians out of the way in order to get it.

"Wildmon points out that these Christian bashers say they want tolerance -- but because they have realized that they can achieve their goals only by driving Christians out of public life, their real goal is to silence any opposition. In Speechless, he demonstrates the truly frightening lengths to which they will go in order to marginalize Christianity and muzzle Christians. He reveals the full, appalling extent of this anti-Christian campaign, . . . ."
" . . . same-sex marriage laws will raise sodomy to the same legally protected status as race -- making any criticism of homosexuality something that would put employees, employers, pastors and others at legal risk . . . Christians who have actually been threatened with prison -- just for protesting the homosexual agenda. . . . The homosexual agenda: to make homosexuals part of an elite class of super-citizens whose moral views and interests will be actively sponsored by the state – while Christians will be second-class citizens at best, with their views censored, penalized and even prosecuted. . . . How secularist liberals are pushing hard to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine, empowering the government to monitor all radio and television broadcasts for religious or political content -- and giving the government power to censor or bankrupt Christian broadcasters"
"Secularist liberals in Congress seek to censor or bankrupt Christian broadcasters."


Attacks on Christians
"Rebuttal of Hendricks by DeMar: Maybe right now. The way “hate crime” legislation is moving, churches may find it difficult in the near future to say anything critical of homosexuality in general. In a December 11, 2002 decision, a judge in Saskatchewan, Canada, has ruled that a man who placed Bible verses about homosexuality in a newspaper ad was guilty of inciting hatred. What will happen when a minister refuses to marry homosexuals who have joined the church in an attempt to test the limits of hate crime legislation? Could a church lose its tax-exempt status? Could litigation costs bankrupt a small congregation and set a legal precedent for larger churches? If you want to know what the future will be like if homosexuals get their way, then read When the Wicked Seize a City by Chuck and Donna McIlhenny. The church’s baptism of fire began when their church was sued by their church organist who had been fired after it was discovered that he was a practicing homosexual. The homosexual movement is about intimidation."


Attacks on the American Family Association
" Help Bankrupt the AFA!

Get a free Bible from the American Family Association! One per unsaved teenager, please. . . . Hey, I'm still waiting on my Chronicles of Narnia DVD collection from the last time we did this "bankrupt the Christians" business.


Attacks on eHarmony
"It would be no skin off Dr. Dobson's back if eHarmony was forced by homosexuals to go bankrupt from all the litigation costs to defend against nationwide discrimination law suites: . . . "Now eHarmony has been compelled to changed its nationwide policy toward homosexuals as part of a New Jersey lawsuit settlement." Read the full article.
