What are Malignant Miscreant Commissars?
Multiples of Miscreant minions Pounding on the doors of the Supreme Court Camber where the new Supreme Court Justice was being sworn in reminded me of the people of Sodom beating on the doors of Lot’s house. This is not far fetched when I discuss the content of this program. We have allowed a culture of Sodom to develop most particularly over the last 50 years. Education has gone the route of indoctrination with complete reversal from the strong Biblical roots that were once at Harvard, Princeton and other places of higher learning.
In this program I am going to talk about the miscreants now controlling colleges and universities. The concepts of what is moral, right, tolerable, normal, tyrannical or despotic as well as other core concepts of a civil society have been turned by modern definitions and ‘narratives’ completely on end. To the extent that the meaning of things is only allowed to be defined by those who impose immorality, intolerance, abnormality, tyranny and despotism. This is clearly seen by the door pounders and Senate Gallery screams widely watched over the last several months.
We have war in America. Yes, it can have all sorts of names: Culture War, Race War, Feminists War, Intolerance War or what ever. The bottom line is that it is a Spiritual War. Quite honestly, unlike our Founding Fathers since the landing of the Puritans, I think the Christians have left the battlefield! Beginning with Pray and then understanding the necessity, even more so the required obligation, to remain engaged in the rest of the battlefields out there.
With that said: The mirrors of history come to reflective reality here on Samuel Adams Returns.
And because you keep asking!

3. On Liberality In Religion by The Rev. Dr. Mason of New York with excerpts from Dr. John Witherspoon
Because you most likely won’t go look up the book I am including just the tip of the opening thoughts:
A WRITER of celebrity (Dr. Paley), has said, that where “men are without some fundamental and scientific principles to resort to, they are liable to have their understandings played upon by cant phrases and unmeaning terms, of which every party in every country possess a vocabulary. We appear astonished when we see the multitude led away by sounds; but we should remember, that if sounds work miracles, it is always upon ignorance. The influence of names is in exact proportion to the want of knowledge.”
As it is the truth of these remarks, which gives a point to their severity, it would be some consolation, were they applicable to the multitude only. But the same foible, though in a less degree, is discernible in men, who are not to be ranked with the multitude; and to whom, if we cannot yield our confidence, we may not deny our respect. The influence of fashion is so subtile and so imperious; the levity of social intercourse is so adverse to reflection;dissent from the circling opinion is, for the most part, so ungraciously received; a fling, whether in jest or earnest, is so convenient a substitute for fact; and a popular epithet, without expense either of thought or knowledge, is so expeditious a mode of determining controversies, which otherwise would be of stiff debate, that the judgment is surprised through the imagination; and the mind is hurried into its decisions without firmness to resist, or leisure to pause. He who has access to that sort of company, which wears the reputation of intelligence, and does not recollect tho have seen this course of things, has made a bad use of his eyes or his memory. How roughly individuals, communities, and even truth itself is often handled by such summary sentences, every writer on logic or ethics accounts it his duty to show. The design of the following observations is not so much to dwell on the general evil of the practice, as, on the one side, to repel an opprobrium, and, on the other, to sift a claim, which it has been employed to sanction.
From the present stat of society, we look back on the intolerance of former ages with a surprise, which does honor to humanity: but at the same time, it is to be feared, with a loftiness of self-complacency, which proclaims that the retrospect administers as much food to our vanity, as to our benevolence. The pendulum of fashion vibrating in morals, as in dress, from an extreme point to its opposite; we are now required to open the bosom of charity to every class of religious tenets, if we hoe to be enrolled among liberal Christians, or to escape the pains and penalties decreed against bigots. As revolutions seldom happen in but one thing at a time, this exchange of feeling appears to have been accompanied with an exchange of principle; and to have included a large portion of the creed of our fathers in the same proscription with their sternness of temper. So that what bishop Butler said of Christianity, may truly be said of orthodoxy: – “It is come-to be taken for granted, by many persons, that orthodoxy is not so much as a subject of inquiry; but that it is now, at length, discovered to be fictitious. And accordingly that treat it as if, in the present age, this were an agreed point among all people of discernment; and nothing remained but to set it up as a principal subject of mirth and ridicule, as it were by way of reprisals, for its having so long interrupted the pleasures of the world.” Or if dislike to principles once held sacred by the most enlightened and excellent of mankind, has not gone all this length, it has, at least, thrown them into the rubbish of obsolete prejudices. Zeal for their purity and propagation is supplanted by a sort of community of persuasions; in which everyone is not only privileged to assert his own right, while he lives in peace with his neighbors, but to demand their aid in repulsing an invader. Whoever shall dare to condemn the opinions of one, is the enemy of all the rest: he must be shunned as an intruder into the sanctuary of conscience; as a stranger to religious civility and liberal refinement, and unworthy of any rank but that which philosophical Christianity has assigned to the bigot.”
*****Ok, that hopefully will get you interested in reading the rest of the article on Liberality in Religion. And YES, there is nothing New Under the Sun!
