American liberal elites persecute Christians with goal of socialism

Liberals are the bigots of today. In the last two years, it’s become clear that American liberal “elites” despise conservatives and particularly Christians.

The idea that all people are created equal is a Christian idea based on where the Bible says “God is no respecter of persons” (Acts 10:34 KJV). American liberal elites do not believe all people are equal, as shown by Hillary Clinton’s comment about the “basket of deplorables”… (and) as shown by many text messages from the FBI in current investigations.

Texas governor Greg Abbott told the Southern Baptist Convention on June 12, that some people try to “silence the faithful and remove God from the public square.” Ultra-liberal organizations like the ACLU have been persecuting and attacking Christianity for more than 100 years.

Liberal elites do not want freedom of speech or freedom of religion. These interfere with them trying to impose their worldview on this planet.

The combination of capitalism and Christianity made our country prosperous and the envy of the world. So the liberal elites are trying to dismantle both. Socialism has never really been successfully implemented on this planet, so the liberal elites are trying to install it here as quickly as possible.

Some liberals point to the socialist democracies in Scandinavia, but in order to work, they require a level of goodwill in the populace not evident outside of Christianity. Socialism almost always leads to a dictatorship and a Third World, i.e., poor country. The liberal elite would not mind this as long as they are the ones in power.

There are many cases of persecution for living your Christianity. For example that of the cake decorator in Colorado who was persecuted for refusing to decorate a cake for two homosexuals that wanted to get married. … He was able to go all the way to the Supreme Court and win. He had his life threatened. One man threatened to shoot him in the head. Another man threatened to kill him with an axe. His wife was afraid to go into his shop.

I have to remember that our enemies are not people. As it says in the Bible in Ephesians 6:12 NKJV, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers … against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

God wrote that through the apostle Paul. Paul was previously Saul, an anti-Christian Pharisee persecuting Christians and wanting their deaths. Then he met Jesus on the road to Damascus and was struck blind for the days, and he changed his mind.

He changed his mind as I did years ago. After reading Charles Darwin’s famous book where he laid out his theory of evolution, I was an atheist for years. At the age of 31, God changed my mind. It surprised the heck out of me.

America was originally started mostly by people either seeking religious freedom or seeking opportunity. The liberal elites are attacking both. They are shooting themselves in the foot. The problem is, it’s our foot. …
