Americas Poverty Pimps By Brannon S. Howse<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Hurricane Katrina has brought to the nations attention the plight of the poor in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />America. While Jesse Jackson and other liberals attempt to blame poverty on racism and the President and other republicans look to throw money at the problem, few are discussing who and what are really to blame for the root cause of poverty in America.
The issue is not racism but anti-Christian bigotry on the part of the ACLU, the NEA, the DNC and Barry Lynn and his group, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State. The sad stories of the poor should be laid at the feet of the liberal, anti-God intellectual elite known as the secular left.
Decades-long brainwashing by liberal-leaning social engineers has so altered the worldview of the underclass that they have little choice but to live in the mire of their culturally bankrupt caste.
We in developed nations use the term poor flippantly to describe people who are really not poor in the historic sense of having literally nothing and living on the verge of starvation. It is also crucial to understand that sometimes when the Bible speaks of the poor, it is referring to a persons spiritual, not financial, condition. However, when the Bible does discuss the fiscally poor, it is not the American definition of the term. Biblical poverty is someone that does not have a coat, food or shelter. Often in America those the government says live in poverty not only have a home, an apartment, and a coat, but a color television, cable TV, video games, an automobile, beer, cigarettes, lottery tickets, and other comforts as well.
While there are a few true victims of povertychildren who suffer from their parents bad choices (which all too many choose to repeat as adults)the blame for poverty lies not solely with those who make lifestyle decisions that lead to their status. The great facilitators of chronic indigence are liberal humanists and their worldview of if it feels good do it. Much of Americas poor and criminal element have become what they are because of the liberal intelligentsia that have removed God from our schools and public square.
With the expulsion of God in America we have seen the increase of the poor and their practice of abortion, domestic violence, laziness, gambling, drug use, alcoholism, theft, assault, sexual promiscuity and countless children being raised in single parent homes with the same mother but different fathers. These consequences stem from the rejection of a belief in fixed morality and the God that ordained the consequences for its rejection or the rewards that flow for its adherents.
The annual resolutions of the National Education Association, (NEA) the cases brought by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the political platform of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) or the defense of child pornographers by Americans United for Separation of Church and State, furthers their goal to make us one nation under man not one nation under God.
The data from the Justice Department, Health and Humans Services, FBI and other agencies documents the overwhelming consequences that began to increase in 1962 when the liberals declared war on God and outlawed prayer in our nations schools. Their anti-God, socialistic worldview has fostered the chronic poor in America and their morally bankrupt lifestyle.
The liberal, humanistic elite, educrats, and social the pimps of moral relativismhave foisted their worldview on the underclass and the outcome has been ruinous.
Founding Father Noah Webster wrote, All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.
Do ideas have consequences? Does your worldview matter? Liberals can enjoy the distinct satisfaction of seeing just how radically their forward-thinking ideas affect the world in which people live day by day. Isnt the compassion of unrestrained sexual expression, of ongoing handouts to the needy a wonderful thing?
Anyone who regards with even a shred of honesty the destruction of unregenerate people in the underclass knows the liberals time is up. Their social experiment is as bust as the former Soviet Unions Communism. The Christian worldview is the hope that is leftand a genuine hope it is. Christians must reach out to the underclass, seek to change hearts, renew minds, and reframe their deformed worldview by showing them the need to embrace Christianity and biblical morality and reject the secular lefts destructive, humanistic, anti-God religious worldview.
