Steynian 276

“Powerful religious impulses have been spilt, secularized.In this climate, people tend to be maniacally opposed to the sin to which they are not tempted: to giving Christ control over the things that are Caesar’s. But they are blind to the sin to which they are hugely tempted: giving Caesar control over the things that are Christ’s.”Faith, hope, and charity” are Christ’s things. They apply, properly, outside time — to a “futurity” that is not of this world. They must not be applied to any earthly utopia. A Caesar who appropriates otherworldly virtues, is riding upon very dangerous illusions. Follow him into dreamland, and you’ll be lucky to wake up.”

That’s Why Obama Was Born

~ WHATEVER OBAMA BELIEVES, it’s not classical Christianity. As we’ve noted before, no Christian would permit music, accolades and statements to be made about them that infringe on the turf of divinity. The One? Halo-pictures? If that was me being divinized, I’d rightly fear the flames of eternal punishment for presumption. But so far as I’ve heard, Obama hasn’t called it off, whatever he’s heard of thusfar. Indeed, he seems to have deliberately wrapped himself in religion: healing the planet, change, hope, transformation! That’s why his opponents are given heresy-trials in the media, before their media-executions. It’s ironically fitting for the non-absolutist left to long for an absolute candidate; no secularity, just Obama & anti-Obama. Soon, like the Taliban, there will be trials for any blasphemy and desecration and doubting of The Obama. It’s evil to claim God’s proper praise for oneself.

On the other side, to vote for someone who winks at such popular divination of a political candidate is also a questionable matter. Read Mark Levin’s brilliant The Obama Temptation: and that’s what it is– a fundamental testing of our beliefs and character, and 50% + of the American electorate is flunking the test of “No Other Gods Before Me”. Aside from the usual political post-mortems of elections, this one is a wake-up call to the American Churches. ~


“There is a cult-like atmosphere around Barack Obama, which his campaign has carefully and successfully fabricated, which concerns me. The messiah complex. Fainting audience members at rallies. Special Obama flags and an Obama presidential seal. A graphic with the portrayal of the globe and Obama’s name on it, which adorns everything from Obama’s plane to his street literature…”

So very well, especially considering that she was awake for somewhere between 80 and 96 hours between the onset of early labour (back on Thursday) and some time this afternoon, when she finally managed to get some much-needed rest” ….

As Ezra points out (and not for the first time), gone are the days when a Jew could feel “secure” by playing Whack-a-Nazi and getting the CHRC to get the whacked one to cough up mucho dinero to the Jews’ self-appointed proxy” ….

“In America, unlike in Europe, cultural populism has generally been a lot more powerful than economic populism,” said Levin. “Americans don’t resent success. They don’t assume that corruption is the only way to the top, but they do resent arrogance and especially intellectual arrogance.”

Even the infamous, liberal, Ninja loans (No Income, No Job or Assets). While these unqualified borrowers were enjoying unrealistically low interest rates, I was paying 22% to 24% interest on the credit cards that I had used to provide me the funds for the mud pump business that has created jobs for more East Texans” ….
