Geographic boundaries are not part of this civil war. There is no North vs. South. Some might argue color is expressed in this 2nd civil war. It isn’t like the first. There is no Gray vs. Blue in this struggle. Politics played a role in the first civil war. It plays a role in this 2nd civil war.
Weapons of the first Civil War included guns, propaganda, and divisive speech. Weapons of this 2nd Civil War doesn’t include guns, least not like the first. This civil war uses rocks to bust out storefront windows, riots in the street with people behaving more like caged animals unleashed on the public than actually being civil in their protests. Starting fires and destruction of vehicles and property in general. I fail to see how this advances their cause.
Propaganda and divisive speech are as volatile as any gun. The Hollywood Celebrities have taken on the role of mandating the morality of the USA! “Thanks but no thanks.” I refuse to allow the immoral to set the standard for what is right and wrong. I could care less which side of the war you are on. You don’t set the tone. You don’t establish the standard.
This 2nd civil war has the element of human rights in it just as the first civil war. Where in the first it was the rights of slaves to be free, in this 2nd civil war it is the rights any specific person or group wants. It includes those confused about their sexuality who want to be free to go against the ‘Standard’ and decide for themselves what gender they really are, regardless of biological makeup, and who they are really attracted to. To carry out this initiative means changing the laws of the land based on a standard opposed to such deviant behavior. It isn’t a far stretch to see those wanting to approve of pedophilia and beastilality as a human rights issue!
I can’t say for certain what was the most potent weapon of the first civil war but I am convicted what is the most potent weapon of this 2nd (though not official declared as) civil war. It is without any doubt of mine, the great American media conglomerates! They are the ones fostering ideas, plans, themes, schemes and actions to fuel civil unrest.
I do not trust any news media. You have news venues classified as conservative, liberal, religious, fake, and the list goes on. They operate like the pack of dogs where a rock was thrown into the group. The one yelping the loudest is the one hit. The news media that yelps the loudest is the one getting their agenda heard.
They make it a point to call attention to what others may not see or even care about just so they can cast discord. It advances their ratings too! I don’t trust media at all. I’d rather blow my nose than watch the news. More times than not I’d get more truth out of my nose than their newscast!
Our local news runs an hour and a half with a thirty minute national news dividing the last third of their telecast. Two hours total. So driven are they to share their biased and agenda filled perspective they’ll repeat themselves within that two hours. It rolls around again four hours later. Multiply that by four major networks ( NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX) and the vast number of networks devoted only to news (CNN, MSNBC, CSPAN, HEADLINE NEWS) just to start the list.
The public is partially at fault cause we listen to their weapons of divisive reporting. I know personally how one ‘investigative’ news reporter didn’t share all the facts of a recent news report and the damage it has done. She will give answer to that. And for that reason I do not trust her reporting.
There is an undeclared Civil War in the USA. Human rights is the platform. The real issue in not human rights. The real real issue is absolute truth! America wants to get their absolute truth from the leanings of the individual citizen. You cannot get absolute truth concerning morals, human rights and sexuality from immoral, dishonest humans demanding their own particular rights.
Absolute truth has to come from a source that knows what absolute truth really is. Where then is the place of Absolute Truth? It is found from Almighty God in the Person and work of Jesus Christ revealed in the Holy Scriptures under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Therein lies the struggle. This civil war is the result of those who wish to go against receiving the absolute truth of the Bible to form their own vs. those who want to allow the Holy Bible to be The Absolute Truth which governs our nation.
Whose side you own? Yours or God’s?
Until next time,
