The online Leftist website, Alternet.com, posted an article titled, "5 Christian Right Delusions and Lies About History, They're not just delusional about science!" The author is Amanda Marcotte, who is obviously a very biased liberal. I refute her five points in my comments to her inaccurate and deceptive article. I post those comments here:
The author implies in her article's title that Christians are deluded in regard to science and not only in regard to America's history. I take umbrage with this false accusation as well. Let's look at three of the topics with which most secularists and most true Christ-followers disagree: Life, Evolution, and Global Warming.
Isn’t it ironic, the Left calls what is evil, good and what is good, evil! author Amanda has the gall to write that Christians perpetrate lies. Sorry Amanda, you are obviously missing one factor, the truth, in the drivel you spew.1. Joe McCarthy was a patriot and a hero. He called a communist a communist! How dare he expose the fact that Communists were infiltrating the government! Are you blind dear Amanda?2. Most of America’s founders believed in God and were Christ-followers. To claim otherwise is itself revisionist. Only a few of the founders were not Christians, but were Deists, yet they too concurred with the majority that religion and religious values were fundamental to this new nation. Many escaped from the persecution rampant in Europe at the time. The leftist definition of diversity and the perverted concept of political correctness were never the values of this nation. Most founders rejected slavery.3. God has blessed America since its inception because she wittingly or unwittingly followed biblical principles and standards.That blessing is being removed as we reject what God approves. We have removed Him, prayer and the Bible from our schools. We have ‘legalized’ the murder of innocent babies to the tune of 50+ million since 1973. We have gone into debt to the tune of $17 trillion. We are encouraging the normalization and acceptance of homosexuality and the perversion of marriage by granting ‘marriage’ certificates to homosexual and lesbian couples.With the outright rejection of God’s standards we will surely become a third world nation, which is the transformation that our President apparently is carrying out. That is, if we even survive as a nation!4. It was when the Roman civilization embraced the welfare mentality and sexual immorality including homosexuality as a ‘normal, natural, healthy’ lifestyle that finally toppled that once ‘great’ nation.5. The French Revolution was godless and secular. The American Revolution was God-honoring, and biblical based.
The consensus among so-called secular scientists is that life begins when the baby takes its first breath, evolution is the sole accepted basis for the origins of life, and global warming is man-caused. On the other hand, most true Christ-followers and many conservatives believe that life begins at conception, that evolution is just a theory and that Creationism or Intelligent Design is just as reasonable and believable (if not even more so) an explanation of origins than that flawed theory of evolution, and that global warming is not solely caused by man, but is mostly a natural phenomenon.
