The MSM Teaching Christians the Way to Respect is Violence

The Mas­ter: Now I can say I was provoked

Doc­tor Who Utopia 2007

The sto­ries con­tinue to pour out of the MSM the MSM blam­ing Pam Geller for the ISIS attack on her event in Texas. With even some at Fox News get­ting into the act.

While all of this blame on Pam Geller might bring back mem­o­ries of the Jim Crow era when News­pa­pers & pols blamed attacks against blacks on civil right cru­saders pro­vok­ing oth­er­wise peace­ful peo­ple into vio­lence which would beg the ques­tion: Does the media have any shame? (No they don’t) but I don’t think that’s the real les­son of the day.

I think the real les­son is for Chris­tians, par­tic­u­larly protes­tants who believe in “Once saved always saved” to grab their guns bombs start shooting.

By the left’s argu­ment we have estab­lished respon­si­bil­ity for reli­gious vio­lence lies at least in part, for the per­son who com­mits an act that acts pro­vokes ones deeply held reli­gious beliefs.

Well if draw­ing a car­toon for dis­play at a pri­vate event what about a Gay pride parade? Or forc­ing some­one to bake a cake for a Gay Wed­ding or forc­ing a JP to per­form one? After all Sodomy is one of the sins that “Cry out to heaven for vengeance?” Wouldn’t tak­ing vengeance for such a sin would be justified?

Or what about Abor­tion? This is the actual tak­ing of an inno­cent human life, it’s mur­der. By the stan­dard the media and left are using for Pam Geller not only did the late Dr. George Tiller have it com­ing but so does every per­son who works at, assists or aids in an abortion.

Now again for a Catholic like myself, this argu­ment doesn’t hold water. One sin doesn’t excuse another and such vio­lent act would be mor­tal sin risk­ing one’s soul and requir­ing sacra­men­tal con­fes­sion and repen­tance to avoid damnation.

But there are plenty of protes­tants believe in the doc­trine of “once saved always saved” mean­ing that once you accept Christ all your sins are for­given for­ever, even the ones you haven’t com­mit­ted yet.

Such a per­son would have no reli­gious fear of shoot­ing up a Gay Wed­ding or blow­ing up an abor­tion clinic or plow­ing through a gay rights parade with a truck, after all they believe they’re already for­given and fur­ther­more thanks to our friends in the media they can can feel jus­ti­fied because of being cul­tur­ally provoked.

It’s prac­ti­cally an invi­ta­tion for West­boro Bap­tist to grab their guns & start shooting.

Can’t you just see kids on the play­ground or in school beat­ing up mem­bers of the LGBT club using this argu­ment, can you imag­ine once the fear of actual vio­lence by well armed Chris­tians is estab­lished how quickly uni­ver­si­ties will shut down events, speak­ers and clubs due to wor­ries about vio­lence? Can you see insur­ers refus­ing to insure or pay off poli­cies on events or movies or exhibits because the respon­si­bil­ity for any vio­lence against them is partly with those hold­ing them?

For decades our friends on the left have painted Chris­tians as vio­lent bar­bar­ians to be feared now they are tak­ing steps to make it so. I pray they are wise enough to see the end result of this new free speech stan­dard they are set­ting and turn away from it before it’s too late.

And if not, May they be happy in the choice they have made and the envi­ron­ment they create.

Update: At least one MSMBC left­ist gets it

Update 2: Jim Treacher asks what would hap­pen with Islamists tar­geted a Gay Wedding:

What would hap­pen to all these peo­ple insist­ing, “I’m all for free­dom, but…”? What would hap­pen to their sud­den respect for reli­gious sen­si­tiv­i­ties? How would they deal with it if the bru­tal mur­der of gay peo­ple we’re see­ing in the Mid­dle East was brought right to their doorstep? How would they rec­on­cile the cog­ni­tive dis­so­nance caused by two of their favorite groups of pet vic­tims col­lid­ing in such an incon­ve­nient fashion?

I think the answer would depend on two things:

1. Which group Islamists back­ers or Gay Activists would throw more money to them

2. Which group is more likely to cause them phys­i­cal danger

The Master:  Now I can say I was provoked

Doctor Who Utopia 2007

 

The stories continue to pour out of the MSM the MSM blaming Pam Geller for the ISIS attack on her event in Texas. With even some at Fox News getting into the act.

While all of this blame on Pam Geller might bring back memories of the Jim Crow era when Newspapers & pols blamed attacks against blacks on civil right crusaders provoking otherwise peaceful people into violence which would beg the question:  Does the media have any shame? (No they don’t) but I don’t think that’s the real lesson of the day.

I think the real lesson is for Christians, particularly protestants who believe in “Once saved always saved” to grab their guns  bombs  start shooting.

By the left’s argument we have established responsibility for religious violence lies at least in part,  for the person who commits an act that acts provokes ones deeply held religious beliefs.

Well if drawing a cartoon for display at a private event what about a Gay pride parade?  Or forcing someone to bake a cake for a Gay Wedding or forcing a JP to perform one?   After all Sodomy is one of the sins that “Cry out to heaven for vengeance?” Wouldn’t taking vengeance for such a sin would be justified?

Or what about Abortion?   This is the actual taking of an innocent human life, it’s murder.  By the standard the media and left are using for Pam Geller not only did the late Dr. George Tiller have it coming but so does every person who works at, assists or aids in an abortion.

Now again for a Catholic like myself, this argument doesn’t hold water. One sin doesn’t excuse another and such violent act would be mortal sin risking one’s soul and requiring sacramental confession and repentance to avoid damnation.

But there are plenty of protestants believe in the doctrine of “once saved always saved” meaning that once you accept Christ all your sins are forgiven forever, even the ones you haven’t committed yet.

Such a person would have no religious fear of shooting up a Gay Wedding or blowing up an abortion clinic or plowing through a gay rights parade with a truck, after all they believe they’re already forgiven and furthermore thanks to our friends in the media they can can feel justified because of being culturally provoked.

It’s practically an invitation for Westboro Baptist to grab their guns & start shooting.

Can’t you just see kids on the playground or in school beating up members of the LGBT club using this argument, can you imagine once the fear of actual violence by well armed Christians is established how quickly universities will shut down events, speakers and clubs due to worries about violence?  Can you see  insurers refusing to insure or pay off policies on events or movies or exhibits because the responsibility for any violence against them is partly with those holding them?

For decades our friends on the left have painted Christians as violent barbarians to be feared now they are taking steps to make it so.  I pray they are wise enough to see the end result of this new free speech standard they are setting and turn away from it before it’s too late.

And if not, May they be happy in the choice they have made and the environment they create.

Update: At least one MSMBC leftist gets it

Update 2:  Jim Treacher asks what would happen with Islamists targeted a Gay Wedding:

What would happen to all these people insisting, “I’m all for freedom, but…”? What would happen to their sudden respect for religious sensitivities? How would they deal with it if the brutal murder of gay people we’re seeing in the Middle East was brought right to their doorstep? How would they reconcile the cognitive dissonance caused by two of their favorite groups of pet victims colliding in such an inconvenient fashion?

I think the answer would depend on two things:

1.  Which group Islamists backers or Gay Activists  would throw more money to them

2.  Which group is more likely to cause them physical danger
