Is it malice or lunacy that dictates the Obama Regime’s feckless, incoherent, and profoundly dangerous foreign policy? Maybe neither. Maybe our rulers literally believe in the ideology used to herd fools into voting for them. Michael Youssef attempts to make sense of the seemingly senseless:
Obama/Clinton/Kerry, et al, represent a segment of society with a worldview that churns the stomach of anyone with a Judeo-Christian worldview. Their worldview was known in the 20th century as “secular humanism.”
Other terms for it include “progressivism,” “liberalism,” and “moonbattery.”
The heart of secular humanism presents an opinion on “man” that directly contradicts the Bible. The Bible clearly shows that after the fall of man in Eden, man became capable of great evil. History offers a long, long list of people that have demonstrated that fact (see: Hitler, Stalin, etc.).
The secular humanists developed an opposite view, however, that man is innately good—and education and enlightenment [not to mention federal micro-regulation] can even make man very good. In fact, the motto of the American Humanist Association is “Good without a God.”
Remember, even when they are trashing, corrupting, and/or suppressing Christianity, liberals think they are the good guys, often exuding enough smug self-righteousness to make your stomach stop churning and turn inside-out.
We can now understand why, when President Reagan referred to the Soviet Union as the “evil empire,” the three major American TV networks went apoplectic. His statement directly contradicted their creed.
The liberal media has used its power to manipulate the masses to put people who share its erroneous creed in charge of the government.
Obama/Clinton/Kerry, et al, are products of this “Good without a God” ideology. Now, with them in charge of our foreign policy, the most powerful nation is in danger. Under their stewardship, soon we will be a powerful nation no longer.
To them, since there is no evil, all nations and national leaders are good. And America is no better than anyone else. Therefore, America should not have such power, and instead, should lead from behind (if at all).
When the good do not lead, the evil fill the vacuum.
It is one of life’s wryest ironies: rejecting faith in favor of what they take to be reason leads true-believer liberals to behave unreasonably out of sheer naivety.
