All this ‘God talk’ makes progressives squeamish

By Tom Quiner

What is so thrilling about the 4th of July?

It is the declaration that your rights are intrinsic, God-given, immutable, inalienable.

Progressives say you’re full of it. And thus we have the root problem of our nation’s seemingly intractable division. Our nation’s very DNA is ultimately rejected by powerful forces on the Left who are remaking our nation with alarming alacrity.

Thomas Jefferson wrote these thrilling words, which we celebrate every 4th of July:


Thomas Jefferson, author of “The Declaration of Independence”

“When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”

All that God talk is a red flag to progressives. The elites on the Left find that God cramps their style. It’s tough to talk about a woman’s “right to choose” when God says you have a fundamental right to life.

It’s tough to agitate for reverse discrimination and confiscatory taxes and other such public policies when God says you have a right to liberty.

It’s tough to redefine “pursuit of happiness” to mean gay marriage when God says such actions are sinful and harmful.

Yes, all this God talk makes progressives squeamish.

Happy 4th.

    Great take on this subject. God is very rooted in the foundations that give us all freedom. Some to cherish it and some to abuse it. But those who abuse freedom and deny God do so by the rights claimed by those who acknowledge God.

    That is because, as you know, Tom, God’s laws are in their hearts whether they like it or not. And because they choose to sin (they must sin, they crave their sin), liberals cannot understand what pains them so when we (the God squad, lol) talk about our religion (or the moral law). It is their conscience weighing so heavily on them that they become like demons trying to eradicate God’s laws from their being. If you are in the presence of the adherents, you can actually see their faces contort with obsession and rage. You can see that it takes everything in them not to lash out physically (I have family members like this and it is very painful for me to watch).

    But it is more than that, Tom. It is a demonic hold. It is endemic with almost all liberals, like a disease, a virus that is contagious. It spreads among them like wildfire. You see, they will not understand this concept. They choose to be oh so “spiritual” rather than recognize the Transcendent at work within them. They chose, with their actions, to eschew reason and faith and thus their minds have become addled. Sin has consequences and they don’t recognize their sin or the consequences.

    Happy 4th to you too!

      To support your point, human abortion supporters in Texas sang “Hail Satan” to counter pro lifers singing “Hail Mary.” Thanks for writing. God bless.

    Hope they stop concentrating on being squeamish and change — before judgment time!
