In my last post, IS MULTICULTURALISM A RELIGION?, I supposedly ratted out Chris Nicholas, the host at Renegade Press. At least that is what he says in his REACTION. When we post stuff on the Internet, it is there everyone to see, but by his own admission Nicholas plays to emotion, not logic. And that is what I wanted folks to realize when I point them to Broken Windows, the post that inspired IS MULTICULTURALISM A RELIGION? When we set aside all logic, discard the wisdom of our forefathers, and let our feelings governed us, just believe whatever we wish to believe, we too think like and sound like Nicholas, vulgar and childish.
That’s the tragedy of letting politicians stuff our children’s heads with multiculturalist fluff. Even though our children’s heads may be full of nothing, they are very proud their heads are full. Moreover, they want to please us by parroting back what they have learned, and because we once went to schools run by politicians it takes us awhile to realize how little sense they make.
Consider who Nicholas quotes.
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.’ -Winston Churchill
Just as the heyday of the British Empire was coming to an end, Churchill served as its Prime Minister, perhaps the United Kingdom’s greatest Prime Minister. And what caused Churchill much sorrow?
Churchill spent his life defending the British Empire, an empire composed mostly of black and brown men run by white Christians. Yet Churchill was a wise man. Grudgingly, he accepted the inevitable. He understood that Britain did not have the strength to hold the empire together, that the British people would not hold their empire together by force. Therefore, he did his best to enable its peaceful fragmentation. Thus confused, people now debate the extent of Churchill’s bigotry (see here, here, here, and here).
What To Do
For something even better, please visit Madison and Hamilton: “Democracy Violates Natural Law” at The American Post-Standard. What that post entails is a thoughtful discussion of the ethics of government. That is, in his post considers what is required to provide an ethical justification for government.
For what it is worth, I added my two cents in the comment trail at Madison and Hamilton: “Democracy Violates Natural Law.”
What do we use as the basis of our ethics. The founders of this nation used the Bible to provide the ethical foundation of our government. If you doubt that, or you are just curious, I suggest a visit to The Bible’s Influence. Here we have a scholarly, but very readable, anthology of articles that demonstrate the wide scope of the Bible’s influence on America.
Note that the thrust of The Bible’s Influence seems to be the promotion of the Bible as the subject of study in the education of our children. Here I may have a little disagreement with the authors. I seriously doubt the competence of our public education system to provide instruction related to the Bible. Why? Those who don’t believe the Bible have great difficulty understanding what it says. They don’t want to believe the Bible. Because they don’t want to believe the Bible, the Holy Spirit does not help them understand it. So it is that we sometimes hear otherwise well-educated scholars saying idiotic things about the Bible. For a good explanation of the problem, see What is the biblical doctrine of illumination?
