    Horowitz: American Left Is at War With Christianity

    Written by Steve Byas








    David Horowitz has written a book documenting what is becoming increasingly obvious — a chief goal of the American Left is the elimination of American Christianity in American society.
    Horowitz appeared on C-Span to promote his book Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America, and bluntly accused the progressive movement of subverting the history of America’s founding so as to promote their radical agenda.
    “In the last 60 years, the anti-religious, anti-American left has conducted a relentless assault on believers and their beliefs, suppressing religious liberty, stripping the public square of religious expression and memory, and, in the process, removing the underpinnings of our democratic order,” Horowitz explained.
    “What inspired me to write this book was the realization that the left’s hatred for Christianity is also its hatred for America itself,” he added.
    As part of this desire to push religion, particularly Christianity, out of public discourse, there is an ongoing alteration of American history. Horowitz offered the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, which opened in 2008, as an example of this effort. The Center, built underground next to the Capitol Building, has exhibits purporting to show the history of the United States, a gift shop, and a food court.
    No references to God are found in the Center, Horowitz noted, and historical references have been edited out. “All references to God and the religious faith of the founders had been systematically edited out of its photos and historical displays,” he recalled. “The lengths to which the designers went to expunge God from the visitors center and from the founding is remarkably petty and extreme.”


    Horowitz told C-Span, “Over the signers in the actual Constitution, it says, ‘in the year of our Lord, 1787.’ They photoshopped it so there’s no ‘in the year of our Lord.’ Unbelievable, actually what they did.” Another example cited by Horowitz concerned the national motto of the United States. “The visitor center said that … our official motto is ‘E Pluribus Unum.’ No, it’s ‘In God We Trust.’ And they took a replica of the speaker’s roster, the Speaker of the House, which has the inscription, ‘In God We Trust,’ and they took it out.”
    Horowitz’s family were American Communists, but he has become a conservative, even writing Radical Son — A Generational Odyssey in 1998 detailing his experiences. While Horowitz is an agnostic Jew, he argues in his newest book that it is the goal of the Left to displace belief in God and the Christian faith as part of its goal to build a socialist new world order.
    According to Horowitz in Dark Agenda, Christian principles were foundational to the creation of the American republic. He charges that American progressives, from Margaret Sanger to Barack Obama, have all attempted to undermine traditional Christianity. (Who can forget Obama’s charge that Middle America was “clinging to their guns” and their religion?) Much like the visitor’s center mentioned by Horowitz, Obama has done some of his own deletions of the Christian foundations of Americanism. For example, when citing the Declaration of Independence, Obama said that we are endowed with certain inalienable rights, but he left out who Thomas Jefferson said endows us with those rights — our Creator.
    Then, of course, there are the attacks upon Trump nominees for their Christian faith. Amy Comey Barrett, a judicial nominee, was taken to task by Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) because Barrett believes the “dogma” of the Catholic Church. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) even refused to vote for a nominee as deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget because the man believed Jesus Christ was the sole way for salvation.
    Even Gary Johnson, the 2016 Libertarian Party presidential nominee, dismissed religious liberty as “a dark hole.”
    Horowitz’s thesis is that this continuing assault upon traditional Christianity is driven by a desire to undermine the foundations of the Republic itself, and he castigates organizations such as the ACLU, which have led the way in the assault.
    The attacks upon Christianity fit in with the continued smearing of the Founding Fathers and of historical personalities such as Christopher Columbus. Columbus’ desire to take the Christian gospel to the heathen of Asia is largely airbrushed out of history. As monuments continue to be defaced, and days honoring certain heroes continue to be changed, similar assaults on Christian personalities and institutions should come as no surprise.

    Convert refused asylum because Christianity ‘is too violent’

    The Home Office refused asylum to an Iranian who converted from Islam to Christianity because it said that Christianity was not a peaceful religion.
    Immigration officials wrote to the man citing violent passages from the Bible to prove their point. They said that the Book of Revelation was “filled with imagery of revenge, destruction, death and violence”

    Watch: Feminist Caught Stealing Crosses From Pro-Life Display. Then The Cops Show Up.

    Caught in the act.
    Via Daily Wire:
    On Friday, a feminist tried to steal crosses from a pro-life display organized by Students for Life at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, before police officers stepped in.
    The unidentified female abortion activist (it’s unclear if she is a student), is seen picking up pink crosses in a display known as the Cemetery of the Innocents; the crosses commemorate the lives of babies killed by abortion.
    “The pink crosses,” notes the Students for Life website, “are part of the spring #PlannedParenthoodTruth Tour on campus, where Students for Life groups are exposing the truth about Planned Parenthood’s poor track record on helping women.”
    “Students for Life set up the 1,000 crosses around 9 AM, with permission from the school, on the Diag on campus and throughout the day pro-abortion activists, presumably students although that is unclear, kept pulling crosses out of the ground, placing them in trash bags, or putting them on top of trash cans,” reported the pro-life organization on Friday.
    Kaylena Wiederhold, Students for Life’s Michigan regional coordinator, confronted the activists vandalizing the display on an area of campus the students responsibly obtained a permit for.

    Breaking: Priest Stabbed During Televised Mass At Montreal’s Saint Joseph’s Oratory

    BREAKING: Unidentified man tries to stab priest during televised Mass in Montreal, Canada: pic.twitter.com/jhHKzxOGzW
    — BNL NEWS (@BreakingNLive) March 22, 2019
    The priest was about to start reading the gospel when the man rushed the altar. The parishioners were incredibly brave putting themselves in between the attacker with the huge knife and the priest.
    Via CTV News:
    Montreal’s famed Saint Joseph’s Oratory says a priest who was stabbed during morning mass is expected to survive the attack.
    In a tweet just before noon on Friday, the oratory said Father Claude Grou’s life is “not in danger” following the stabbing.
    Montreal police say a suspect has been arrested and he was taken to the station for questioning.
    Investigators said a call came in about a stabbing at the church at approximately 8:40 a.m. on Friday morning when the priest was in the process of celebrating mass before approximately 50 worshippers.
    Shortly after the attack, the Diocese of Montreal identified the priest as Father Claude Grou, the rector of the church.
    The mass was being livestreamed by the Catholic television network Sel+Lumiere TV, which airs the religious ceremony daily, when the stabbing occurred. The footage was quickly removed from the website following the attack.
    In the video, a man wearing a dark winter coat and a light-coloured baseball cap pulled out a large knife and walked in front of the altar. The footage shows the suspect run up the steps towards the priest.
    Grou attempted to run away as the attacker knocked over a candle. The video shows the man quickly catch up to the priest and push him to the ground before he appears to stab him.

    They haven’t id’d the suspect yet, but he’s 26 and here’s a pic of him: Heavy is reporting that he is “known to the police.”

    Thanks for the link, Lenno. The war against Christ is ramping up. No need to fear though, read Psalm 2.
