Steynian 265

~ FREEDOM IS “an American concept” says HRCstapo guy Dean Steacy. Bosh. However, we often hear libgressives assert that we have a separation of church & state in Canada. [ERROR BUZZER]. Canada– like the UK– presumed the cooperation of Church & state, whether of Catholic Church and Quebec, or Anglican Church and the rest of Canada. We have no such law, or historical principal, because we were full of royalist loyalists, remember? Hello? Oh, right: history is for patriarchal oppressors. Reality is inconvenient, and doesn’t confirm our prejudices and wishes.

In any case, the AMERICAN principle on church & state is (1) to protect the freedom of religion from state interference, and (2) to oppose and official religion for the state. It does not mean religion must shut up and get stuffed, or that Christians and other people of faith can practice their spiritual eccentricities in private, but not let their faith interfere with the real world. In practice, people of faith are also citizens; why these particular citizens should not let their deepest convictions guide their citizenship, views and words– as opposed to anti-religious sorts, for example– is a matter of prejudice and confusion, not principle. That culture or the chattering classes are ignorant of and hostile to faith is no surprise: that they imagine their views are universal in time and space is just plain goofy.

“THEOCRACY!” We will hear– as if politically serious people of faith actually meant to set up a Mullahcracy in Canada. Hello? WE HAVE A LONG TRADITION of allowing secularity to operate by the custom of law and tradition and precedent, right? Clue in– and maybe learn up on how church & constitutional democracy have lived alongside each other for centuries– it’s a Greek-Roman-Christian thing. Oh, and if you’re so darned worried about Theocracies, why not condemn Iran, Hezballah, Saudi Arabia and other states, which actually are such things? Oh, right– it’s easier and more fun to bash non-lefty people of faith. The unCanadians, who do not bow the knee to the secular gods MultiCulti, Diversity, Tolerance, and Sharing.

In reality, like the Nazis and most Communist regimes, those who would enslave us recognize the unique and ultimate claims of faith as a serious threat to materialist political claims to ultimacy and supreme power. Glorious leader or the Fuhrer must oppose all other Messiahs– especially the real one, if the Christian belief is true. There shall be no other gods before Glorious leader! Just look at how China or North Korea treats Christians; or how the Soviets killed hundreds of thousands of bishops, monks, nuns, priests, and ordinary believers in their war for the utopia.

Still Worser

Or how about Holocaust 2.0? After Hitlerism was done with European Jewry, he had detailed master-plans for rounding up principled and serious Christians, and getting his final solution on with them. The 1000 Year Reich would only allow the worship of Hitler and Hitlerism and divine things: The plan was for the Church of National Socialism, uber alles. Pope kidnapped, churches Nazified or closed, clergy rounded up.

Learn up; be thankful the Allies stopped this particular antiChrist; beware of those who make similar claims.

As a human institution, the church is fallible, sinful, and imperfect. As a divine institution, she is part of the inbreaking of the Kingdom of Heaven into history and the life of humanity: King Christ’s own life lived in his people. Freedom is– fundamentally– a spiritual and religious concept, grounded in our created nature as children of God. Other claims to ultimacy, or attempts to leave God out of the account in our individual or national life, are dangerous, and lead to enslavement, however cuddly, friendly, or familiar. Listen: I used to be a Ceeb Religionist, too: I know the terrible difficulty of just saying no, and turning it off. “Just one more show.. Addict? I can quit at any time!.. C’mon: one more, for a friend?” Just say no. Democracy, your soul, and civilization will thank you for it, even if Anna Maria Tremonti calls you names and smugly mocks your convictions.

We must stand on guard against such evils because it’s not only “They”, but also “We”– all of us are tempted to peace at any price– The Chretienite Years were very much soft-fascist; the Obama years (Heaven forbid!) will be more clearly so. And there will be a cost: “Take waht you want”, said God, “but you’ll have to pay for it.” So the old Spanish proverb has it– so reality will bite our behinds, in that we’ve been warned of fascism for a century, and still dally and flirt with it in big ways and small: whether HRCs & speech codes, or Obama TruthSquods and fanaticism.

Sorry, but I have no other ultimate grounds for hope, rights, our freedoms, our nation, or our future than these things.

Just sayin’, is all.


Obama’s Little Potatoes

~ IN CHATTING WITH the local Provincial Conservative MLA (also a cabmin), he’s fairly sure that Harper will move on the free speech issue after the election, if he wins a majority. That’s a lot of maybes, but this guy isn’t a say-anything-for-votes politico, and has serious roots in the community, and wider political world. Signs on the lawn it is, then: and time will tell. The OttawaCons had better keep this promise, or a steady stream of poop will fly on the blogosphere– all credibility lost on the socon & conservative front. If. I’m just sayin’, is all: as a Christian, I don’t put my ultimate hopes in government, or a political party, right? I’m a pilgrim passing through, abiding by the laws and customs of where I find myself, but seeking a distant, brighter land, my true and eternal home and native land. ~

“The social engineers of the left, motivated as they are by their creative utopian aspirations–expressed by the desire to impose (forcibly, if necessary) universal peace, social justice and brotherhood upon humanity–are completely oblivious to the malignant side of their own natures. Both they and the capitalist entrepreneurs of the right who they despise so vehemently are both driven by the darker human emotions: envy, greed and a need to dominate others.”
