Regarding the recent letter from Allen J. Novosad, "Radical Socialists' activities are form of corruption," it is a thoughtful, well-stated commentary on some of the social ills occurring before our eyes. It directs us to ponder the bigger questions - "Can America be fixed?" and "Is there anything that we as individuals can do to make a difference?"
We must recognize the civic religion, humanism, with its liberal politically correct, anti-God rhetoric is largely the genesis of much of the unrest within America today. It must be vigorously opposed. The Humanist Manifesto written in 1933 sought to replace the biblical principles and Christian foundation of our society and has been a growing movement since World War II.
Humanism, as defined in Wikipedia, is a philosophical and ethical stance that emphasizes the value and agency of human beings, individually and collectively, and generally prefers critical thinking and evidence (rationalism, empiricism) over acceptance of dogma or superstition. Humanist movements are typically aligned with secularism, and today, humanism typically refers to a non-theistic life stance centered on human agency and looking to science rather than revelation from a supernatural source to understand the world.
The humanist agenda plans for total domination through well-thought-out, incremental, long-term strategies to infiltrate and change American society. What is disconcerting is that humanisms' subtle, persistent, all-pervasive gnawing at Christianity has the real potential to destroy the Church. Unfortunately, some mainline churches across the world have lost the authoritative voice they once had because they have begun to assimilate many aspects of humanism into their doctrine.
On June 19, guest columnist Dr. Rey Gonzalez wrote, "People looking for a solution to a problem present in society must look at society and undertake the reshaping of those aspects within it which promote its decay. We must oppose all those ideas which, however cleverly disguised as promoting social progress and individual freedoms, tend to tear apart the traditional family."
As conservative intellectual, writer Midge Decter once said, "You have to join the side you're on." Put your time, heart and mind to fixing America. That would be a great and Godly thing to do.
