Once again, I’m handing over the reins of the Progressive Redneck to my boyhood friend, Jefferson Davis Dudley. Jeff is very concerned over the course our nation is taking and wants to ask for your help. So, without further ado, here’s Jeff((As always, any post from my “friend” should be read as satire)).
Going to hell in a handbasket...Once again, I would like to start by thanking my good friend, Joel, for affording a humble country boy like me the opportunity to speak to all you sophisticated city folks. As I said the last time I was here, it’s not often a dyed-in-the-wool, Bible-believing, red-blooded Christian American like me gets the chance to reach a group of progressive Christians like you folks and I am very grateful. Also, once again, I would love to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with you. I hope each and every one of you will accept the freely given gift of God’s grace and know true peace. Honestly, I pray for that daily. Now, with the preliminaries out of the way, let’s get down to business.

 

I don’t know if you folks have noticed, but the United States of a America, that “shining city on a hill” that Ronald Reagan (God bless his soul) spoke about, is on its way straight to Hell. I realize that’s some rough language and I try not to curse like that if I can help it, but there’s no other way to put it. Satan has gotten his hooks into this once great Christian nation and is literally dragging us down into the Pit. How is he doing that? Through the actions of the Anti-Christ “President” Barack Hussein Obama.

For evil to triumph in this world, Satan knows he first has to destroy the template for God’s Kingdom on Earth America. Because of that, many things have happened over the last 6 years to undermine this blessed Utopia. And, it just keeps getting worse. In the past two weeks, we’ve had a Muslim offer the opening prayer for a session of the House of Representatives and, just one day later, another Muslim praying in our national cathedral((sure, Episcopals are heathens, being one small step away from the Catholics, but we’re talking about our nation’s church!)). Prayers to Allah in places that have been historically Christian is just wrong and should be never be allowed to happenNotwithstanding the Establishment Clause of the Constitution that conservatives claim to revere or the fact that Allah and the Christian God are one and the same, of course.

As if all that wasn’t enough, Mr. Obama had the nerve, the unmitigated gall, to quote scripture as he circumvented the will of the people signed a completely legal an executive order that will grant legal status to some 4.5 million undocumented aliens just ignore the fact that several previous Republican presidents did the very same thing with nary a peep from conservatives. That’s right, friends, a man who has defended the abomination that is late-term abortion, actually spoke words from God’s Holy Word to justify his actions. To quote Tucker Carlson, “It’s repugnant”. It is repugnant because, as Elizabeth Hasselbeck pointed out, using scripture to guilt someone into doing what you want is not the proper use of God’s Word even if conservatives do so all the time.

Friends, we are at a crossroads. Since Mr. Obama has been in office, the privilege of white Protestants good Christian morals this country was built on have been under attack by fair and equal application of the law demonic forces. Godly marriage has been compromised to the point where people might be allowed to marry their pets, livestock or car/truck forget that no one is actually asking for this; Christmas, that most hallowed holiday in our tradition, is under constant attack by the forces of political correctness even though saying Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas causes no one any harm whatsoever; we live under the threat of Sharia law replacing our Constitution any day never mind that is actually impossible and our “leader” has shown consistent disrespect for the forces that keep us safe (the military and the police) by not shouting their praises from the rooftops even when they screw up supporting them the way they deserve. I suppose it’s just a logical extension that we now have Muslims praying in our most sanctified spaces and scripture quoted to legitimize giving illegals a free pass for welfare, free health care and jobs that should be saved for hard-working Americans even if those Americans refuse to do them to the American Dream. It’s almost enough to get a fellow down.

But, I’m not down, friends. No, I’m not down because I have the Lord and the power of prayer on my side. I want to ask you fine folks to join me in praying that this nation will come to its senses and return to the racism/classism/religious bigotry/xenophobia that fills our history our God-ordained mission of extending our domination over the world making disciples.

Thank you and remember, God loves you enough to send His son to die for your sins. If you don’t love Him back, He’ll send you to eternal torment in the fires of Hell. Believe me, you don’t want that.
