The Religion of Leftism

The Religion of Leftism

There are 20 comments on the American Thinker story from Sunday Nov 18, titled The Religion of Leftism. In it, American Thinker reports that:

Leftism pretends to be a system of thought, but it is nothing more or less than a secular religion. It is godless, but godlessness is the most bigoted and intolerant of all belief systems, and the Ultra-Orthodox Church of Atheism adheres to no doctrine more fanatically than the impossibility of a Blessed Creator.

It is now politically incorrect to give thanks to God on Thanksgiving day.
Leftists are now insisting that young people give thanks to family members and leave God out of it.

My kid sister is thankful for her big brother because he taught her how to ride a bicycle and calculus.

I thanked God for gravity last week and that did not turn out so well.

According to my pastor, God's greatest gift to us is our families, but think about it. If it were not for gravity we'd be nothing but a bunch of Hydrogen careening through space.

Leftists should not be educating young people.
Thanksgiving Day was originally observed by the Pilgrim Fathers, who in 1621 celebrated their harvest in North America.
When God is left out, then men make themselves into something they are not.
America will pay the price if Godless heathen rule.

We're already paying the price. We've got fundies.

The first Thanksgiving was not celebrated by Protestants at Plymouth Rock.

Family members exist, and god doesn't. But you should be free to thank god, or Elvis, if you like.
You cons often attack boogie men. Can you name these leftists who are insisting young people and leave God out of it?

It's not politically incorrect, it's stupid. Why give thanks to something you have no evidence for.

I hate to break it to you, many "leftists" are Christian too. p.s., it is also stupid when leftists give thanks to god.

This is, of course, a lie.

Most people here in the United States spend Thanksgiving with their families. It would be IMPOSSIBLE for "leftists" to dictate what people give thanks for in the privacy of their own homes.

Also, Thanksgiving is a holiday mainly celebrated in the USofA. How would the "leftists", the vast majority of whom do not live in the United States, enforce this "political incorrectness" you are harping about (hint: the "leftists" here in the United States would barely be center left in much of the world).

Holidays created with little meaning I would question espeially slaughter holidays that resemble pagan holidays of the old world.
I mean anyone could be pagan if they want it's just killing and canabalism was one of the features.

we are communal omnivores wha's your point? these 'holidays' are traditions which mark seasons, unite society under a general shared sense of an individuals service and responsibility to the whole community. Feasts were such events, just as wedding or funerary dinners are today. We mark occadions of importance with such social gatherings

That would be false acording to biblical teaching.
In Genisis God commanded man to eat herbs and nuts for meat along with cattle and other animals to follow.
Tradition hardly justifies communal actions.
Many cultures like Hindus have annual holidays to where massive animal slaughters occur..

The human sacrifice in communal societies don't exist today but they have with the south American Indian tribe slaughtering up to a hundred thousand humans lined up to the temple alter in one day.

Besides bears are natural omnivores because bears can kill with their paws and teeth to where humans can't, and bears can eat raw meat, humans can't without dying.

You're not a natural omnivore, you're a natural herbivour that can pracftice omnivorism through meat preperation of cooking and tenderising meat.
otherwise you'd die.

In 1497, just five years after Christopher Columbus landed in the Caribbean French, Verrazano made landfall in North Carolina

The Mayflower arrived in New England on November 11, 1620

A difference of 123 years.

A fake hoiliday.

Most people do not live 100 years.

A slaughter holiday.

Look. You're a small minded person. Social engineering occurs when a group of people can control the actions or events of other people.
In the USA we are special because we are not servants to powers, but are of a draft of rights, and are of voters with low limitations on the ability to make use of our prosperity .
George Bush died last night and he is forever in debt to us.
Thanksgiving is fake because no event occured to make it a holiday..

It's you who miss the point, irrespective of our rights WE collectively have bee continually ripped off so much that we went broke decades ago. That didn' stop them, they just began a deficit and kept printing more money....they still do, but they call it quantitive easing now instead of cooking the books. Time for fundamental and radical change, and it's happening in America now.

You were referring back to things like pagan feasts and cannibalism, but if you refer back properly you'll note that every religion has pagan, or at least tribal ritual traditions and taboos, the forerunner of organized religions. Religions are social engineering tools

The Pilgrims came to the New World because they were being persecuted by the God loving Christians of the Church of England.
