The Injustice of “Social Justice”
Or How the Government has created a state “religion”.
Or When Will We Teach the Haitians How to be Self Sufficient?
I will not accept the argument that the American culture is not a Judeo-Christian culture. The concept of religious freedom is nowhere and by no means threatened by acknowledging those factors that became the underpinnings of an entire culture. Of course, those who would destroy Christianity as the model of our legal system, and thereby allow any perversion of morality to co-exist with a free people, will get their shorts in a bunch every time the relationship between Americanism and Christianity is acknowledged. There is a difference between a culture and a religion. The founders understood, however, that keeping man’s rights in the authoritative sphere of an unseen and all-powerful God lessened the tendency of government to tamper with those same rights. If rights come from God, than who can take them away? In any event, the laws, responsibilities of citizenship, rituals, punishments, etc., the culture if you will, are without any doubt “Christian” in nature. This is irrefutable regardless of the emotions of the anti-Christians. Pay attention to American entertainment-the art reveals the people. Heroism is so undeniably ingrained in American culture that we even define ourselves as exceptional. Why are Americans exceptional? Because, they are heroic. But heroism, in the modern era, is directly related to Christianity. A hero, in a traditional sense, is someone of power, either physically, economically, or intellectually, who uses that power not for their personal comfort and aggrandizement, but relinquishes that power to the good of strangers. Superman can destroy the world if he wanted to, he recognizes the failures of human beings, but he chooses instead to give up his own life to protect and save strangers-his neighbors. Spiderman’s inner conflict is a Christian conflict-given so many gifts from Providence I must use these gifts to do good. Heroism is a Christian concept. I am not saying that other religions or cultures are not heroic, or heroic individuals are not found there, but they do not share the commonality of the founders of this nation-commonalities that we are not able to refute. As such, there is already amongst the American people, a culture inculcated originally with Judeo-Christian beliefs and morality, a feeling of responsibility to one’s neighbors. Americans give more to meet the needs of the poor of the world than any nation on Earth. The government, my friend, will soon legislate this attitude out of existence because of their tampering with our culture and institutions. They will take advantage of our self-imposed guilt, brought on by our very Christianity, to keep some dependent on our assistance.
The title of this tome’ is “The Injustice of “Social Justice”. You may say, ”How can concern of justice for all in society ever be unjust?” When social justice transfers paternity from religion to the state, that is when social justice becomes injustice. Those who would impose their religious beliefs on others via the government will be met with the ultimate paradox-forcing charity by threat of violence by the state will create a secular, state-religion that will be more cruel, and more pragmatic than any capitalist could ever be. The state has no soul. Once faced with the burden of manifesting this unreasonable utopia, it will begin to make pragmatic decisions about how to distribute its largesse. It will begin to regulate life itself. The manifestations of this “socialism” are presently past and current history. Birth is already regulated via abortion. Death will soon be regulated via euthanasia, either actively through the “right to die”, or passively as in “end of life ‘counseling’”. Those in the church who would oppose the “culture of death” are supporting its very existence by sacrificing morality on the altar of “social justice”.
How stupid can the learned be?
“SOCIAL JUSTICE” IS A STATE RELIGION WHICH IS EXPRESSLY FORBIDDEN BY THE CONSTITUTION OF THIS NATION. Where is the ACLU now? This is an attempt by the state, with the full and thoroughly misguided cooperation of many churches and their clergy-to usurp Christianity as the dominant morality and replace it with the morality of the “common good”. The theory of the “common good” is a humanistic concept. Humanists believe one can be atheistic and still see murder as contrary to the “common good”. However, murder can also be justified in the cause of the “common good” quite contrary to the laws of God and Christianity. One has only to listen to the justifications for abortion as women’s health to see the manifestation of this concept.
Am I saying that as a nation, through our governing bodies, that we cannot allocate some of our wealth to the poor. Absolutely not! What I am saying is that institutionalizing poverty, turning the poor and their families into perpetual wards of the state thus guaranteeing their cooperation in maintaining the political power of some governmental factions, is the worst kind of injustice! It is ultimately a view of human beings as things, tools for control. The result will be serfdom, perpetual control and oppression of all the people! If you don’t believe that this is the natural tendency of government-the ultimate control over the “governed” you are mightily naive and no scholar, however novice, of history.
