The Left's "Gospel"

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JUNE 13, 2017

         THE HEADLINE IN SUNDAYS NEW YORK TIMES READ: “LIBERALS FIGHTING FOR THEIR FAITH: SEEKING TO BREAK RIGHT’S GRIP ON NATION’S MORAL AGENDA.”

         EXCEPT THE RELIGIOUS LEFT ARE NOT FIGHTING FOR THEIR FAITH. THEY ARE FIGHTING FOR THE DEMOCRAT PARTY. THEIR FAITH IS IN GOVERNMENT, NOT GOD. TO PUT IT SUCCINCTLY, TO THEM GOVERNMENT IS GOD.

         WE’VE SEEN THIS BEFORE, OF COURSE. FOR YEARS THE LEFT CONTROLLED THE PUBLIC’S IMAGE OF THE CHURCH – ANTI-WAR, ANTI-DEFENSE, AND PRO-ANYTHING THE SECULAR-PROGRESSIVE WORLD WANTED TO DO.

         REMEMBER CHURCH-STATE SEPARATION? THAT “DOCTRINE” WAS INVOKED ONLY AFTER CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS STARTED SPEAKING OUT ABOUT POLITICAL AND MORAL ISSUES. SUDDENLY THEY WERE UNDERMINING THE CONSTITUTION.

         THE LEFT’S GOSPEL IS POLITICS. THERE IS VIRTUALLY NOTHING THE SECULAR PROGRESSIVES WANT THEY WON’T ENDORSE. NO WONDER THEY ARE LOSING MEMBERS. THE RIGHT, OF COURSE, HAS BEEN GUILTY OF MARRYING SCRIPTURE TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. BOTH SHOULD REMEMBER WHAT JESUS SAID: “MY KINGDOM IS NOT OF THIS WORLD.” I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
