10th Doctor: [to Capt Jack] I can’t help it. I’m a Time Lord. It’s instinct; it’s in my guts. You’re a fixed point in time and space; you’re a fact.

Father Damien Karras: I think it might be helpful if I gave you some background on the different personalities Regan has manifested. So far, I’d say there seem to be three. She’s convinced…
Father Merrin: There is only one.

One of the things that people find most amazing about the left is the war on objective truth.
There was a time that “Free Speech” was all about: “Speaking truth to power” but we’ve reached the point that not only does the left not speak the truth but they run away when confronted by it because objective truth being true is tough to counter, to wit:
University of California-Santa Barbara senior Andrew Cavarno decided to challenge the widespread claim that 1-in-5 college females are victims of sexual assault. With the support of Young Americans for Liberty (YAL), Carvano scheduled an event called, “Is There a Rape Epidemic? Rape Hysteria, Due Process, and Free Speech.” Here is what happened:
This event was intended to be a panel discussion, with propositions from both sides of the argument. Yet, we have found it incredibly difficult to find anyone who is willing to present the affirmative position — that there is indeed a rape epidemic on college campuses, and that the measures taken by the universities to combat these problems are therefore fair / justified. We have contacted every single feminist studies professor at UCSB… but none are willing to present the affirmative position. In the words of the chair of the Feminist Studies Department, Professor Laury Oaks, “It is important to not have debates.”
This kind of thing would normally shock, much like the new decree in Massachusetts that if someone is delusional enough to mutalate themselves for the sake of ducking an objectie reality that they can’t cope with, that businesses MUST accommodate said delusion or face the full penalty of the law, but when one considers the real target of the left it is completely unsurprising because all of this insanity comes from a single root.
The rejection of God.
We often hear the phrase that “God is love” and while that is true there is something more basic to God, something that is revealed in his first encounter with Moses
“But,” said Moses to God, “when I go to the Israelites and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ if they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what am I to tell them?”
God replied, “I am who am.” Then he added, “This is what you shall tell the Israelites: I AM sent me to you.”
and is confirmed by Christ.
Jesus, knowing everything that was going to happen to him, went out and said to them, “Whom are you looking for?”
They answered him, “Jesus the Nazorean.” He said to them, “I AM.” Judas his betrayer was also with them.
The Name I AM is the expression of an objective truth. I exist. In that same way Christ answer to those about to take him to kill him is a statement of fact, not only that he is, but WHO he is.
Before all of the other attributes of God is his eternal existence, a being that has ever been, or as a Doctor Who fan would put it, a fixed point, a fact.
That’s why it is no coincidence that before the rise of a movement that rejects objective fact could grow, Christianity and the culture of Christianity had to go.
Because God is the primary fact, I AM, and once that fact is tossed away suddenly you can have 50 genders on facebook, you can decide killing a child is just like getting your car towed and you can lie with impunity to the american people without cost.
Because one objective truth is gone anything and everything is allowed.
That why the war on truth had to start with a war on God, because only with the withdrawal of objective truth can all else happen. Stacy McCain again:
logic requires us to point out that, if God exists, His existence is independent of any individual’s belief. Facts are facts, and you are free to believe whatever you want, but your belief does not alter the facts. The truth is still true. Furthermore, nature abhors a vacuum and, in consequence of the modern assault on Christianity, we constantly see proof of a familiar phenomenon: “When men choose not to believe in God, they do not thereafter believe in nothing, they then become capable of believing in anything.”
Alas for the left, and our poor country that has embraced this nonsense reality tends to reassert itself at the most inconvenient time, and when it does, I suspect it will be rather painful.
