blackbird Posted February 14 Report Share Posted February 14 (edited) This presentation by Dennis Prager, one of America's most popular conservative speakers, tells how leftism is very destructive and destroying western civilization. He explains why conservatives in general are wrongly focused on opposing individuals rather than the real foe, which is leftism. I will add a few comments to this O.P. because some have complained the O.P. lacked substance. Prager pointed out a number of things. He mentioned the Pope. He has a lot of respect for Catholics, but said the Pope is not a Catholic. The Pope came from South America and is more of a leftist. There are a lot of leftists in South America. That's why they have struggled with Communist revolutionaries and have had a lot of trouble in places like El Salvador, Venezuela, and other places. This could explain why latin America has struggled with poverty. It is not rich even though it has many natural resources. He says latin America is a screwed up system because of leftism. He says the Protestant church is failing because of leftism. He said an American Presbyterian denomination singled out Israel for condemnation. The world is full of evil, yet they single out Israel. Makes no sense. But that is what leftism does. I know for a fact leftism has crept into many denominations. The Jesuits could be behind some of this as well. After all, the Pope is a Jesuit and a leftist. He points out liberal Christians have also caved in to the leftists and go along with it. He also talks about how he grew up as an Orthodox Jew. He even wrote books about it. But he left the Orthodox part because he says they have abandoned some basic principles. They don't stand up against leftism even though it is ruining civilization. He says the Orthodox don't stand up to same-sex marriage. They don't fight the fight. He says he is very tolerant of gays and says they are part of his life and family. He makes it clear he is opposed to redefining marriage. He says you have to have compassion in the macro and standard in the micro. In other words you can be compassionate while standing up for certain principles. Leftism confuses this and accuses anyone who has any kind of principles that defend the historic and biblical family structure of being bigots or racist and lacking compassion. That is one of the problems in society today. There is no distinction in leftism. Edited February 15 by blackbird 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
