Pig Ignorance

dunce-capby baldilocks

When the time comes for choos­ing — and the time will come — most of the left­ist, pseudo-​conservative, and even some real con­ser­v­a­tive media will con­vert to Islam. And they will do it for this rea­son: igno­rant pride, along with cow­ardice. How do I know this? Well, heck I’m just guess­ing, but I think that igno­rance about the spir­i­tual foun­da­tion of one’s own cul­ture makes a per­son prone to accept­ing those of other cul­tures – espe­cially when the option of con­tin­u­ing to breathe is on the line.

What make you say that the left­ist and pseudo-​conservative media are igno­rant about Judeo-​Christianity,” I hear you ask.

There have been plenty of unironic exam­ples of this type of igno­rance on pub­lic dis­play since Christ­mas. Mostly of it is the result of rely­ing on one’s mem­ory for the impor­tant, but not essen­tial details sur­round­ing the birth of Christ.

This doozy from Pulitzer Prize-​winning jour­nal­ist Kath­leen Parker—noted by Mol­lie Hem­ing­way–is, how­ever, not the mis­un­der­stand­ing of a minor detail.

One obser­va­tion. I don’t know… this seems to have slipped through the cracks a lit­tle bit but Ted Cruz said some­thing that I found rather aston­ish­ing. He said, you know, “It’s time for the body of Christ to rise up and sup­port me.” I don’t know any­one who takes their reli­gion seri­ously who would think that Jesus should rise from the grave and res­ur­rect him­self to serve Ted Cruz. I know so many peo­ple who were offended by that com­ment. And you know if you want to talk about grandios­ity and mes­sianic self-​imagery I think he makes Ted Cruz makes Don­ald Trump look rather sort of like a gen­tle lit­tle lamb.

Parker thinks Jesus is dead and has no clue what the term ‘body of Christ’ means.

Pon­der that for a bit.

I may be wrong, but I think that Parker is emblem­atic of those who the main­stream media enti­ties employ and reward. And I think all her offended friends are emblem­atic of the rest of Orga­nized Left. Con­ver­sion by the sword to Islam will not mat­ter to those who don’t really know any­thing about the terms of their alleged sal­va­tion in the first place.

With their necks on the line, they’ll deny Christ and will not under­stand­ing the sig­nif­i­cance of that act of voli­tion. After all, what’s the big deal about deny­ing a dead guy?

I con­tend that there will be a lot of peo­ple in Hell who are too stu­pid to fig­ure out how they ended up there.

When the time comes for choosing—and the time will come—most of the leftist, pseudo-conservative, and even some real conservative media will convert to Islam. And they will do it for this reason: ignorant pride, along with cowardice. How do I know this? Well, heck I’m just guessing, but I think that ignorance about the spiritual foundation of one’s own culture makes a person prone to accepting those of other cultures–especially when the option of continuing to breathe is on the line.

“What make you say that the leftist and pseudo-conservative media are ignorant about Judeo-Christianity,” I hear you ask.

There have been plenty of unironic examples of this type of ignorance on public display since Christmas. Mostly of it is the result of relying on one’s memory for the important, but not essential details surrounding the birth of Christ.

This doozy from Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Kathleen Parker—noted by Mollie Hemingway–is, however, not the misunderstanding of a minor detail.

One observation. I don’t know… this seems to have slipped through the cracks a little bit but Ted Cruz said something that I found rather astonishing. He said, you know, “It’s time for the body of Christ to rise up and support me.” I don’t know anyone who takes their religion seriously who would think that Jesus should rise from the grave and resurrect himself to serve Ted Cruz. I know so many people who were offended by that comment. And you know if you want to talk about grandiosity and messianic self-imagery I think he makes Ted Cruz makes Donald Trump look rather sort of like a gentle little lamb.

Parker thinks Jesus is dead and has no clue what the term ‘body of Christ’ means.

Ponder that for a bit.

I may be wrong, but I think that Parker is emblematic of those who the mainstream media entities employ and reward. And I think all her offended friends are emblematic of the rest of Organized Left. Conversion by the sword to Islam will not matter to those who don’t really know anything about the terms of their alleged salvation in the first place.

With their necks on the line, they’ll deny Christ and will not understanding the significance of that act of volition. After all, what’s the big deal about denying a dead guy?

I contend that there will be a lot of people in Hell who are too stupid to figure out how they ended up there.
