France typifies much of the problem being foisted upon the United States by liberals and reflected in the current Executive Branch of Government. The malady afflicting France and likely soon the United States is repeatedly referred to as incompetence some in the media, but they fail to take into account intent. And that intent has been repeatedly enunciated by those presently in power in the US Administration. Most recently was the President's proclamation that "ISIS has been contained" followed hours later by horrific attacks resulting in the death of more than one hundred fifty Parisians. His intent was to mislead and it quite literally exploded in his face.
Political Liberalism has afflicted Europe for decades while it has also worked its evil agenda in the United States. The salient distinction is that there remain people of faith in the United States while in Europe those who practice the Christian faith has plummeted into oblivion. Unfortunately, the United States is rushing headlong into the same societal train wreck. Few in positions of spiritual leadership have undertaken the burden to sound warnings against societal decay, sexual permissiveness and destruction of the fundamental unit of society, the family comprised of one man and one woman.
The recent Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges defined out of existence the traditional family in the United States and is reflective of a society so caught up in sexually perverted behavior and its associated political agenda that it fails to see, or ignores, or worse, embraces behavior that will inevitably lead to its demise. While the political Left celebrates the decision as a victory for the country, it is in effect an indication of a malady so destructive, when combined with the rampant implementation of so many anti-traditional American policies that the country would not be recognizable to the Greatest Generation which kept freedom alive, much less recognizable to its Founders.
It is safe to state that the current Administration is the most anti-Traditional American Administration in the history of the country. It has repeatedly expressed disdain for the Constitution, privately capitalized and held corporations, free markets, and Christianity, all the while embracing socialist doctrine, expanding the role of government, penetrating every facet of the US security apparatus with Islamists and destroying the traditional family.
It is well known that when a farmer plants wheat, that is what he reaps, and when he plants corn, it is corn that he reaps. And so it is with a Nation, when it sows evil behavior, it will reap a whirlwind of evil behavior. This is not to be construed in any way as a defense of past policies that were plainly wrong, rather it is a siren call to those who understand and love freedom. Is it freedom to kill a fetus? Is it freedom to harvest its organs for research purposes? Consider what Hitler was attempting to accomplish in Germany, then observe many contemporary practices by the political Left and the similarity is breath taking. Take just one example: genetic research, and extrapolate from there.
And so it is that the spiritual vacuum created in France for whatever the reason, is now being filled with violence by a determined and inherently evil force that if left unchecked will lead to suppression and tyranny unknown to and unimagined by the present generation. Islam is the antithesis of freedom; regardless of what its apologists state, it is not about genuine peace, it is about submission to Islam's authority and lifestyle. Therein, they assert is peace. But Islam's version of peace is so tyrannical that it would be hell on earth for those who have known real freedom that emanates truth. "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
