Truth be known, many on the left despise diversity. They can’t tolerate the thought of being different despite their clamoring otherwise. Leftism is a culture that lends itself to group think. Individuality is rarely tolerated. I contend that many extreme leftists promote regulation over religion because rules allow them to feel moral in our society rather than rejected by it.
Annise Parker, the openly lesbian Mayor of Houston, Texas, issued subpoenas for the sermons of five local pastors after voters rejected a “bathroom bill” that would allow mentally troubled transsexual’s to pee next to your little Sally or Tommy, This the latest example of a near perfect case and point.
I had more respect for the LGBTQ community when their mantra was “celebrate diversity.” It seemed as if their goal was to be a part of the American culture as a whole – inclusive, in other words. However, many of today’s radical homosexuals and leftist alike have moved toward an exclusionary existence where unity is no longer the goal.
They’re quick to excoriate anyone who disagrees with their worldview, because their mantra of “celebrate diversity” was never true to begin with. What they’ve wanted is to be indistinguishable, and in some cases superior, but not diverse. Why? Because at some point in their personal existence they decided they’ve been rejected long enough. This is why the “gay marriage” agenda has been an ideal movement for the DNC to hi-jack; Democrats realize it’s easier to corral angry herds as opposed to rugged individuals.
People who have perceived feelings of rejection like ethnic minorities and gays, often experience emotions of forlornness. Therefore, when they enter the political realm it’s not uncommon for them to advocate for extra rights in addition to the equal rights we all enjoy under our Constitution – entitlements, in other words. Unfortunately, the DNC has capitalized on those emotions and taken up arms on their behalf, figuratively speaking of course.
It’s obvious to me that the radical Mayor Annise Parker isn’t at peace with who she is. She’s tormented. Were this not the case, she’d welcome freedom of religion instead of censorship. Religion serves as a mirror to our souls and a check on our behavior. In light of this, it’s no wonder the Mayor wants to break that mirror.
Remember the saying “dare to be different?” Conservatives interpret that as a clarion call to buck peer pressure and succeed in a free society. However, for leftists like Mayor Annise Parker who long for normalcy and a sense of morality, those words war against their soul. Their own conscience judges them.
In a sense, excessive regulation by the left is an attempt to out-moralize the religious community. Leftists subject their constituents to more and more regulation because they find solace and morality in being able to follow “rules” better than Christians. Of course their “rules” are often unconstitutionally imposed rather than adopted. In fact, one could say that regulation satisfies the Democrat’s religious fix.
Spiritually speaking, the remedy to persuading many on the Left in the arenas of life and politics is lots of love and prayer. Practically speaking, in order for the United States to survive as the greatest nation ever known to man, we must crush them at the ballot box every time we get a chance.
Carl Jackson was born and raised in Los Angeles, California by his mother and father until the age of 11 when his mother died unexpectedly of a chronic illness. Carl attempted to find his way as the youngest of six who were lost without the strength of their matriarch. He moved back and forth between LA and Orlando, FL trying to find his way in life. With the help of family and friends he was introduced to hard work, faith and family values.
However, as a struggling teen he wandered down the path of least resistance, finding himself in jail twice and with a child he had to fight to raise. By the grace of God and insistence by his brother and friend he attended an Evangelical church and found that there was a better way. Once he accepted Jesus Christ as his savior he began to develop a greater desire to understand who God is and why it mattered.
He began to see that the cultural dependence on government promoted by the Democrat leaders among his community rejected dependence upon God. As he studied America’s history he discovered that despite America’s flaws, particularly slavery, God used our Founding Fathers to create our Constitution within the context of the Bible and world history. It’s divine and exceptional nature is undeniable.
It was during his new found love for American history that he discovered the Democrat party perpetuated slavery, formed the KKK, and fought against the civil rights of minorities. With this hidden history Carl was launched on a journey to help people of all races and backgrounds discover facts of history as well as realize the benefits of utilizing their God-given gifts and talents far outweigh any benefit from a government subsidy.
