Republican Idolatry

Teddy Roosevelt once said of his countrymen that, “We are a people, not a polyglot boarding house.” Decades of mass immigration has changed the ethnic composition of the country. But the shift to a majority non-white population is only one revolution being foisted on the country by its ruling class.

According to a recent study at the University of Chicago, America’s Protestant majority will disappear in the next year. According to the survey, the Protestant population has shrunk from 63% in 1993 to just 52% in 2002.

The survey also found that the percentage of Americans claiming no religion has risen from 5.1% in 1972 to 13.8% in 2002. Over the same period, American’s claiming a non-Christian or non-Jewish religion rose from 1.9% to 6.9%.

The decline of Protestantism leads to the sort of blasphemy that took place at the Republican National Convention this week.

A Mulsim Imam opened the convention in prayer. This decision by Karl Rove, or whoever is responsible, is nothing less than the advancement of idolatry, pure and simple.

Like the emperors of ancient Rome, our leaders bless all religions as long as none claim to corner the market on truth.

Christians should ask themselves if it worse for pagans to advance idolatry or Christians to promote idolatry.

And I rant about illegal immigration all the time. I'm very outspoken, so I have no problem saying what's on my mind. But I don't see many bloggers dealing with these issues.

Thanks, Lashawn. It is unfortunately the case that even in the Blogosphere, where people generally speak there mind, there is a tendency to pull back from truths that offend. I've visited your site frequently and know that you pull no punches. May God bless your work.
