America becoming Christophobic?

declarationofindependence.jpgAmerica is facing a sense of Christophobia—the fear of limitations on a society. This is based on a nation’s founders, who tailored the founding documents around the teachings of The Bible, those of Christ in particular—and why a given society would rebel or lash out.

Unbeknownst to many is the direct relationship that exists between that cultural revolution of the 1960—1970’s and Christophobia as we are experiencing today. This movement was presented to us courteously by none other than the “Baby Boomer’s”. However, that’s a completely different article; what is being examined right now is this apparent rise in God-bashing, hate speech, and ill-will directed at Christians. But why?

Because we can! What about my 1st Amendment rights? Then freedom of speech turns into expression (how, I don’t know) so freedom of expression which isn’t written anywhere, becomes burning the Nation’s flag, which to me is a hateful act that should be guarded by the same 1st Amendment. Go figure!

When one sits back, better still, reflects on this nonsensical and nasty excrement it is a wonder that there is any order at all. Please reference the post below Can’t Do the Time…Puleez!  My suggestion is that slowly but surely order is being lost altogether. How about we start with The Dumb-ing Down of America?

 In Democracy and Education (1916) John Dewey, the most influential American educator of the 20th century wrote “dependence denotes a power rather than a weakness. There is always a danger that increased personal independence will decrease the social capacity of an individual…”

Does this explain why when the “progressive educators” got control of the educational system in the U.S. in the 1960s, we began to see an increase in welfare (dependency)? Gee, you think?  How about those who were in college during that same period? Most of those who were in college during the 1960s are the very same individuals we see running for the presidential nomination of their parties. 

What we see happening is a gradual merging of philosophies, religions, governments and, even though Christianity as we’ve known it in the past will be excluded, many pastors are leading the parade. As long as churches and indoctrinated religious sects continue to condone same-sex marriage, homosexuality, and the living of a hedonistic lifestyle, this merging of philosophies will continue and further decline in values and moral fiber that built our nation.

It is critically important to understand that the relationship between education, and society are inexorably intertwined. Stop and look at the public education system in America. When was the last time we heard anything good about it? Education is the largest platform for any society to transmit the importance of values, morality, and ethics. This direct relationship suggests that if one begins to suffer then the entirety of the nation suffers.

Money is and will continue to be the god of the hour. Every man who makes a million thirsts for a second million.  We have become a materialistic, hedonistic, narcissistic and covetousness nation. And the liberal left would gladly throw in the word imperialistic.

Much more coming…stay tuned!

    The current crisis we face is basically one of faith; but a “social” or “civic” faith. It is one that sets the foundational unstated assumptions of Western society as a whole.

    Basically the assumptions of our society are those of Enlightenment individualism. These philosophical systems are not bad; they just cannot support themselves. As in most systems, they are generally parasitic on the assumptions of the social structures before them. At the same time, the react against them. Yet these previous structures limit the new structures ability to go “whole cloth” with their main premises. This is generally a good thing, as these new systems in truth cannot maintain themselves independently.

    Let me use an example. I believe essentially the pacifistic position is parasitic. It relies on others who are NOT pacifistic to survive, whether it be the armed policeman or the military to protect the land in which they reside. Otherwise, these groups would be crushed in a moment by a well armed and non-pacifistic occupier.

    (It is funny that the Wiccan Starhawk’s first novel unintentionally illustrated this point. She portrayed the “good” pacifistic pagans in a militaristic “Christian” occupied society. In the end, her pacifistic Pagan groups only survived because some of those nasty armed non-pacifistic soldiers switch sides and fought off their compatriots. Even in fiction, pure pacifism cannot work.)

    The same with our foundational assumptions. They always work off the capital of the previous social assumptions. The Reformation worked off the capital of the Catholic Faith, maintaining at least vestiges of the communal responsibilities in that system. However, soon that restraining influence was dropped to the point where the Protestant ethic is basically moral individualism under God. Then the Enlightenment worked off the Reformation’s capital, highlighting the individual even more, but counting on the moral restraint of the Reformation (while making the God less involved in a political/religious split).

    Now that Reformational capital is run out. We are seeing individualism run rampant, demanding equal rights for all varieties of social groupings with no foundational way to distinguish between those claims. Therefore, we encounter “Christophobia” (I still love that term), since that is the last vestage of the old Reformational capital that is still attemping, no matter how weakly, to reign in that level of socially destructive amoral individualism.
