A man stood up the other day at one Democrat Party function or the other. He was a fellow Democrat with those gathered, as I recall.
The man with the microphone for that moment said something like, “Our nation is in serious trouble, and the only one who can make it right again is the Lord Jesus Christ.” That’s not his exact quote, but it was just as strong as I’ve paraphrased here.
There was immediate and loud reaction to his words. They were not in support of the speaker’s sentiment. Far from it; there were shouts for him to shut up and even stronger invective, as I heard the reaction.
They gave him the proverbial hook in no uncertain terms.
He was exactly right, of course, and what he was doing on that Democrat stage, I must admit, baffled me. Having heard all such references to God in a positive way shouted down by Democrat Party gatherings since well before the 2016 presidential election–shouted down with boos and hisses of serpent-like virulence–I was surprised that even one among them still held to the view he tried to express.
Now I am aware that there are many true Christians even among the Democrat Party as it is currently constituted. However, it is getting more and more difficult to come to that conclusion based upon the God-opposing madness that–again, in my view— has become manifest since the time immediately following John F. Kennedy’s presidency.
It is as if that political element within America is waging war on God. I’m not thinking here in terms of symbolically or allegorically or metaphorically, or any other way than literally. It seems the Democrat Party, with the full-blown assistance of the mainstream media and every other humanistic element of culture and society, is at war with God–specifically with Jesus Christ.
Lest critics brand me as a falsehood-spreading, right-wing deplorable, I offer a couple of pieces of evidence of recent vintage to support my case.
While the anti-God forces seek in every way, and on a daily basis, to push Christian beliefs from the public square, the champions of this force incessantly seek to claim that Christians are doing what they, themselves, are doing to remove all godly governance.
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) passed a resolution at its summer meeting championing “religiously unaffiliated” voters, who the resolution noted are the “largest religious group” within the party.
The DNC’s “Resolution Regarding the Religiously Unaffiliated Demographic” stated that “religiously unaffiliated Americans overwhelmingly share the Democratic Party’s values,” and “have often been subjected to unfair bias and exclusion in American society.”
The resolution also takes a shot at deeply religious voters, who are accused of using their religious beliefs to oppress other groups.
It said “those most loudly claiming that morals, values, and patriotism must be defined by their particular religious views have used those religious views, with misplaced claims of ‘religious liberty,’ to justify public policy that has threatened the civil rights and liberties of many Americans, including but not limited to the LGBT community, women, and ethnic and religious/nonreligious minorities…
DNC chair Tom Perez has been openly critical of church-going Americans in the past.
Perez said in December 2018 that Republicans have an advantage because “people buy” what they hear at church.
“It should come as a surprise to no-one that that person has elevated the issue of courts to the top because that person on the pulpit is saying ‘ignore everything else that this person has done and is doing, we have to focus on one issue of Roe vs. Wade.’ And people buy it. Because that’s their only source,” Perez said. (“DNC Resolution Celebrates Democrats’ ‘Largest Religious Group’ — And It’s Not Christians,” Daily Caller, Peter Hasson, senior reporter, 8/30/19)
The “religiously unaffiliated” designation is used to avoid “we are against any governance by any deity” label. America is still a nation that has a significant remnant of God’s people, and the Democrat elite know it. They are masters, it seems, of luciferically inspired language.
Nowhere is the growing war against true believers in Jesus Christ more pronounced than within the so-called higher education institutions of America. We can read or hear news reports almost hourly of professors ranting against the way America was founded. They always bring the slavery issue into the mix of their vitriolic condemnation of the Founding Fathers. They ignore the goodness within the Founders’ intention to, ultimately, bring about realization and acceptance that all men are created equal and that God is that Creator who favors no human being over another.
One example in American academia today of the hatred for all that is Christian is Jeff Klinzman, an adjunct English professor at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. He claims to be in sympathy with the domestic terrorists called Antifa, and posted the following on Facebook. “I know who I’d clock with a bat.”
He was referring to President Trump, who had said previously: “Antipas are Radical Left Wack Jobs who go around hitting…people over the heads with baseball bats.”
The professor also wrote that he wanted to “stop evangelical Christians” and posted a poem that said, “Kill them all and bury them deep in the ground.”
Klinzman explained why he shared the poem, “It’s not pretty, and I’m not proud, but seeing what evangelical Christians are doing to this [country] and its people fills me with rage, and a desire to exact revenge.”
When contacted by Cedar Rapids ABC affiliate KCRG, Klinzman said he was part of the group, “I affirm that I am antifa.”
Antifa is a far-left group that often goes to rallies to fight white supremacists or groups they perceive to be racist. They also have a history of attacking journalists covering the protests.

Jesus’ own words immediately came to mind when observing the treatment of that aberrant member of the Democrat Party’s most active membership, the man who stood with the microphone claiming Jesus as the answer to all problems.
They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. (John 16:2-3)
Just as the pious Jews sought to kill those who believed Jesus was Messiah, the elite of that Democrat Party gathering seem to be of the mindset reflected by the words of the professor as given above.
But it is not just those within the Democrat Party who are waging war against Christ. The whole world is going mad with the reprobate mind that has infected mankind because of collective resistance to Heaven’s governance. They are primed, sad to say, to accept their false Christ, who will soon appear on the world scene. Antichrist will wage the ultimate war against Christ. He–and all who follow him—will meet their devastating end upon the killing field called Armageddon.
Don’t be part of that end-times war-making. Accept Christ as prescribed in God’s Word.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:9-10)
