The small nation of Switzerland taught the civilized world a lesson once again. In a time when Europe is disarming itself through political correctness and delivering its future in the hands of Islam, the small mountain nation told the most aggressive and savage of the world religions: “No to the minarets.” In a referendum, 57 percent of the voters and 22 out of 26 cantons voted in favor of a ban on building minarets to the mosques in the nation. As of the moment, Switzerland has only 4 minarets for its 350,000 Muslims, and the building of more minarets is declared unconstitutional and against the law. The Swiss people made that declaration in a remarkable display of peaceful exercise of popular democracy vote, against the will of their own government, against the disapproval of the other European nations, and against the wrath of the Muslim world.
Congressman Brian Baird, a Democrat from Vancouver, Washington, told the Columbian, a newspaper serving Clark County: “What we’re seeing right now is close to Brown Shirt tactics. . . . I mean that very seriously.” On Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show, Baird went even further by claiming that town hall rhetoric was “eerily reminiscent of the kind of things that led Timothy McVeigh to bomb the federal building in Oklahoma.” Congressman Baird should take a gander at this exchange between one of his fellow Democrat colleagues and a medical doctor who lives in Rep. David Scott’s district in Georgia and tell us who the brownshirt is. (This report is the way journalism should be done. Bravo to “11 Alive News” in Atlanta.) Nancy Pelosi stepped in it, although the media are ignoring it, when she claimed that attendees were “carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on healthcare.”
Under the Marxists, education had to be centralized in order to reshape the minds of the young so that they could more easily conform to the new social and political ideology. The State would become the educator, the new parent.
Now that what some might call the "unthinkable" has actually happened, it’s certain that a vital remnant in the Church will wake up and realize that, it’s time to start paying attention. Had McCain won, the Christian Right likely would have given another overconfident sigh of relief, hoping that the other side would somehow not be able to advance its anti-Christian offensive in 2012. (It would have advanced anyway.)
Worldviews are comprehensive. No cultural stone is left unthrown in the battle against competing ideologies. Secularists who write their screeds against Christians who engage in politics have history on their side, and it’s not a very good history. Under Nazism, churches were “confined as far as possible to the performance of narrowly religious functions, and even within this narrow sphere were subjected to as many hindrances as the Nazis dared to impose.”
