Dumbing Down the American Mind

I pretty much agree with this article, which outlines a rationale for what the author terms “a nearly willful tendency for Americans to forgo reality in favor of believing what they want to believe.” (I can’t vouch, though, for the website on which in appears).

The author’s approach is nowhere nearly as well developed as that of Ron Suskind‘s magnum opus article “Without a Doubt,” which appeared in the NY Times Magazine in October 2004. Suskind’s eye-opening, and profoundly disturbing, article gave me some insight as to why religious voters were more prone to vote for Bush in 2004. It wasn’t just his support of faith-based initiatives and his erosion of the separation between church and state. It is, I believe, a function of how people perceive Bush’s policymaking.

Supporting Bush entails committments akin to those required by religion:

  1. Unquestioning faith in policy and the motives behind it.
  2. Acceptance of reality as described by the leadership, even if all indications are otherwise (e.g., we’re winning the war in Iraq).
  3. Clear dualism differentiating the righteous from the damned.

Thus the religious crowd, be it Evangelical Christian or Orthodox Jewish, finds solace not only in the purported “Judeo-Christian” values of the Bush administration, but also in the way that their continued support of the administration has required committment to a belief system not unlike what is dictated by religion.

30% of Americans still subscribe to the Bush-religion. The remaining 70%… Well, I guess they’ve decided to become political atheists.

  1. The main objective of Secular Humanists is to stifle religion, and promote secular humanism with a helping hand from atheists, homosexuals, abortionists, radicals, and malcontents. There is no doubt that secular humanists have been working very diligently behind closed doors with members of the U.S. Congress, and the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court in violation of the U.S. Constitution. And in 1954 Secular Humanists succeeded in establishing the United States National Church of Secular Humanism in violation of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    It all began in 1947, with the violation of the U.S. Constitution by the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. The tyrants established a fictional wall of separation between Church and State in Everson v. Board of Education, as result many Americans including those who profess themselves Christians have regressed to the darkest pit of greed, immorality, and ignorance.

    Way before America’s declaration of independence, pastors educated, equipped, and mobilized Christians to be effective citizens, capable of influencing public policy, and in enacting legislation for the strengthening of the family, and for the protection, and dignity of life. Some of the clergy led Continental troops into battle against the British invaders. Clergyman Jonas Clark of Lexington, Massachusetts was a farmer as well as he was a clergyman, he cultivated about sixty acres of land.

    When asked whether the people would fight, Rev. Clark replied that he had trained them for this very hour; they would fight, and, if need be, die, too, under the shadow of the house of God. It was on April 19, 1775 that the first blood of the revolution was shed and the men that fell were his parishioners. When Rev. Clark saw their dead bodies he exclaimed, “From this day, will be dated the liberty of the world”

    Jesus said, how can anyone enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man. And that’s exactly what Senator Lyndon B. Johnson did in 1954, later to become the ruthless 36th President of the United States of America. Johnson introduced in the U.S. Congress a devious amendment to the IRS 501c3 Tax-Exempt Code, and established the United States National Church of Secular Humanism, with the idea of binding, and gagging the Church of Jesus Christ, thus eliminating the significant influence it had up until that time in shaping sound public policy, in affecting legislation, and in addressing issues in opposition to irresponsible legislation, while the Christian Clergy of America looked the other way.

    And in 1963, in Abington v. Schempp, the tyrants of the U.S. Supreme Court legislated from the bench in violation of the U.S. Constitution, and declared the Bible, and Prayer Recitation unconstitutional, after being part of America’s public schools curriculum for over one hundred and fifty years, and immediately were removed from Public Schools all across America, and substituted by the Theory of Evolution, Sex Perversions disguised as Sex Education, and by the introduction of the Homosexual Agenda, and the Christian Clergy of America did not even twitch an eyelid.

    And in 1973, in Roe V. Wade the U.S. Supreme Court Justices, again, legislating from the bench in violation of the U.S. Constitution, and imposed on the Citizens of America, Abortion or legalized premeditated Murder on Demand. The Alan Guttmacher Institute, a leading proponent of abortion on demand, claims that there have been more than 50 million abortions in the U.S. since Roe Vs. Wade, and as usual the Christian Clergy of America remained muted to this very day.

    And in 1998, U.S. President William J. Clinton signed executive order 13087, which is nothing more than the glorification, and affirmation of homosexuals, lesbians, and transgender into public education, and into America’s workforce, and once more as predictable as the sun, the Christian Clergy of America compelled by greed, played out their blind, and dumb act one more time.

    Once the Christians Leadership forsook the lordship of Jesus Christ by gagging themselves in submission to the illegitimate U.S. National Church of Secular Humanism under the IRS 501c3 Tax-Exempt Code, for a fistful of tax-exempt dollars, Christians began to withdraw from the Public Square, Public Education, the Entertainment and the News Media, and the Halls of Government, thus allowing the wicked to take over the culture by default, and legalize one abomination after another.

    In effect, Churches in America are like boxers agreeing to face their opponents in the ring with their arms tied behind their backs, they are only punching bags unable to defend themselves, let alone win. The 501c3 self-gagged pulpits of America are the springboards used by the wicked for the last sixty-two years to lunch, and legalize one godless abomination after another, such as Separation of Church and State, Affirmative Action, Forced Busing, Abortion, and Euthanasia or Legalized Premeditated Murder on Demand, Divorce, Sodomy and Same Sex Marriage.

    America is in an irrevocable path to perdition, at the present rate of moral decay the Wicked Fools soon will succeed in legalizing Pedophilia, the act of an adult engaging in sexual activities with a child or children, followed by Incest, the act of engaging in sexual activities between persons closely related, and Bestiality, the act of engaging in sexual relations with an animal or animals, and they may even manage to legalize Necrophilia, the act of engaging in sexual relations with a corpse. Now that the perverts have been emboldened for their success in legalizing Same Sex Marriage there is nothing to prevent them from marrying mere children as soon as they succeed in lowering the age of consent, through NAMBLA, the North American Man/Boy Love Association

    For over two thousand years the Wicked-Fools refuse to submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, who is the creator, master, and judge of the universe. Romans 13:1-2, “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves”

    Which means, God has established both, the Civil Government, and the Church. Therefore the ruling authorities such as the U.S. President, the entire U.S Congress, Governors, Mayors, and the people must all be in submission to Jesus Christ under the authority of the Church. And the Church under the headship of Jesus Christ is the moral conscience, and the moral compass for the entire Nation.

    The Government on the other hand has the authority to enforce all civil laws, Romans 13:4 “For he is God’s servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God’s servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer”

    That is why John Adams, founder and second President of United Sates said, “Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

    Romans 13 teaches that a wall of Separation between Church and State can not, and does not exist, but only inside the minds of those being deceived, it is as phony as a three-dollar bill, and one of the biggest hoaxes perpetrated against the American people.
    And, it is obvious that if Church, and the State would work in unison as designed by God, the entire nation would become the shining city upon a hill, and the wicked would be immediately excluded from the culture, and driven underground having no wiggle room left to promulgate their evil agenda.

    Ezra Taft Benson, the thirteenth president of The Church of Jesus Christ, said in a speech titled Freedom Is Our Heritage, “I support the doctrine of separation of church and state as traditionally interpreted to prohibit the establishment of an official national religion. But this does not mean that we should divorce government from any formal recognition of God. To do so strikes a potentially fatal blow at the concept of the divine origin of our rights, and unlocks the door for an easy entry of future tyranny. If Americans should ever come to believe that their rights and freedoms are instituted among men by politicians and bureaucrats, they will no longer carry the proud inheritance of their forefathers, but will grovel before their masters seeking favors and dispensations — a throwback to the feudal system of the Dark Ages.”

    The question remains: Why the Christian Clergy of America as the moral conscience of the nation failed to obey Romans 13, and also failed to demand the U.S. Congress to act in repudiation of such murderous, and unconstitutional rulings, and demand the impeachment of those directly responsible, such as Justices Hugo L. Black, Fred M. Vinson, Stanley F. Reed, William O. Douglas, and Frank Murphy, and U.S. Senator Lyndon B. Johnson, and Justices William J. Brennan, Jr., Tom C. Clark, Arthur Goldberg, John M. Harlan, Earl Warren, and Byron R. White, and Justices Harry Blackmun, Warren E. Burger, Potter Stewart, John Marshall, Lewis F. Powell, and U.S. President William J Clinton, as prescribed in the U.S. Constitution?

    Even though Justices serve lifetime appointments under the U.S. Constitution, they can be removed from the Court by first being impeached, or charged by the people, or Congress, or both, and followed by a majority vote of the U.S. House of Representatives, and then convicted by a two-thirds vote of the Senate. The consensus must be that removal should be for violating the oath each Supreme Court Justice takes according to Title 28, Chapter I, Part 453 of the United States Code, or for criminal or ethical violations which reads as follow, “I, (Name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as (Title) under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God.”

    Americans can’t longer have the power, and the wisdom of God since they kicked Him out by establishing and illegal separation of Church and State, by trampling on the Ten Commandments, and by replacing the Bible with the theory of evolution in public education, now Americans can only have the same simple mindlessness of the Amoeba, which consists of a mass of protoplasm resembling its contemporary offsprings, the American people

    The whole world knows that America is a country made up mostly of money loving idiots, beginning with the idiots at the bottom, and going up, up, and up, to the very top. There are idiots everywhere, from the idiots teaching in schools, colleges, and universities, to the idiots of the mainstream news media, to the political idiot in DC. Only a country made up of idiots would elect crooks and liars as their leaders, and enlist the enemy in the arm forces, and tolerate the enemy preaching hate against America in colleges, and universities all across America, and only a country made up of idiots would prohibit a child to read her Bible in school in her own time. America went from the home of the free and the brave, to the home of the dumbed-down idiots lacking the common sense that God has bestowed upon geese.

    It is obvious that two major classes of people remain in America today. The Wicked-Fools, and the Dumbed-Down Sheep. The Wicked-Fools are the embodiment of those performing Euthanasia, Abortions, Sodomy, and Same Sex Marriage, being supported, and applauded by Christians, Darwinists, Communists, Socialists, Atheists, Globalists, and those that allow the U.S. Congress to reinforce the rights of Illegal Aliens ahead of Americans.

    The Wicked-Fools claim that the Founding Fathers were Deist, and they are the ones demanding to keep a false wall of separation between Church and State in order to stop the high moral standards afforded by the Ten Commandments, thus promoting instead their perverted agenda based on lies, fear, sexual perversions, violence, intimidation, the occult, ignorance, and falsehoods. The Dumbed-Down Sheep on the other hand, just listens to the Wicked-Fools and follow them. The Founding Fathers today would be morally bound to fight another revolution, this time to defeat the Wicked-Fools, and reeducate the Dumbed-Down Sheep in the fundamentals of Godliness.

    James Madison, founder, and the fourth President of the United States addressing the General Assembly of the State of Virginia said, “We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We’ve staked the future of all our political institutions upon our capacity…to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.”

    The sixth President of the United States, John Quincy Adams before the Inhabitants of the town of Newburyport, at their request, on the 61st anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, July 4th, 1837 delivered the following oration.

    Why is it that, next to the birthday of the Savior of the World, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day? — And why is it that, among the swarming myriads of our population, thousands and tens of thousands among us, abstaining, under the dictate of religious principle, from the commemoration of that birth-day of Him, who brought life and immortality to light, yet unite with all their brethren of this community, year after year, in celebrating this the birth-day of the nation? Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior? That it forms a leading event in the progress of the gospel dispensation? Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission upon the earth? That it laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity, and gave to the world the first irrevocable pledge of the fulfillment of the prophecies, announced directly from Heaven at the birth of the Savior and predicted by the greatest of the Hebrew prophets six hundred years before?

  2. Henry Asta, aka Henry, is known as a religious extremeist who has been spamming churches and blogs with this drivel. He’s not interested in a dialoge or the truth, but in driving his point of view into everyone’s brains. He scares most of us – the kind of guy who, in the name of God, is capable of almost anything. Ignore him, but watch him.

  3. Concerned citizen, talk is cheap, you claim that I am not interested in a dialog or the truth, why don’t you produce the evidence then?
