Apocalyptic Hallucinations on the Right

A half-century ago, conservatives were full of gloom and foreboding. In 1961, Ronald Reagan warned that unless conservatives prevailed, "one of these days, you and I are going to spend our sunset years telling our children, and our children's children, what it once was like in America when men were free."
In accepting the 1964 Republican nomination for president, Barry Goldwater warned that his opponents "are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth. And let me remind you, they are the very ones who always create the most hellish tyrannies."
Conservatives had good reason for pessimism in the 1960s. The Soviet Union was at the height of its power, wielding nuclear weapons, tyrannizing half of Europe and fomenting revolution around the globe. Democrats, with an unbreakable hold on Congress, were expanding the welfare state. The Vietnam War, the civil rights movement, violent crime and the counterculture were upending the landscape.
But the Soviet Union failed to conquer the world. America did not succumb to communism. Crime rates plunged. Hippies were unable to turn the country into a vast replica of Haight-Ashbury.
On the contrary. Reagan carried the conservative banner into the White House. The economy became freer. Tax rates came down. The Soviet empire collapsed. The counterculture passed largely into history.
Christianity, defying John Lennon's assessment, outlasted The Beatles. By the 1980s, young people gravitated to preppy clothes, business school and the Republican Party. The long dark night of totalitarianism never descended.
So you might think conservatives would wake up every day with a spring in their steps and a song in their hearts. But that's not what happened. When their worst fears weren't realized, they didn't discover grounds for optimism. They looked for new reasons to be fearful -- and they found them.
Barack Obama strikes many Democrats as a pale facsimile of what they would like in the White House. He relied on Republican ideas for his health care reform, accepted across-the-board spending cuts, conducted secret domestic surveillance, kept Guantanamo open and did next to nothing on gun control. Blogger Andrew Sullivan admiringly calls the president "a de facto moderate Republican."
But to hard-line conservatives, he is the embodiment of a screaming nightmare. They suffered a lot of horrifying hallucinations after Obama won re-election, and those visions have not gone away.

Here's Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, one of the star attractions at last week's Values Voter Summit in Washington, sounding the alarm: "The challenges facing this country are unlike any we have ever seen. ... This is an administration that seems bound and determined to violate every single one of our Bill of Rights."
He declared, "We're nearing the edge of a cliff. ... We have a couple of years to turn this country around, or we go off the cliff to oblivion." And he invoked Reagan's 1961 warning, fearing that "one day we will find ourselves answering questions from our children and our children's children, 'What was it like when America was free?'"
Cruz is blissfully oblivious to the fact that when Reagan issued that jeremiad, he was talking about what would happen if Medicare became law. Medicare did become law -- and yet here is Cruz, 52 years later, telling us that (SET ITAL) we are still free. (END ITAL) So Reagan was wrong then. But he's right now. Or something.
It's not hard to make a case that Medicare reduced freedom in one realm of our lives. But it didn't destroy individual liberty in the aggregate, or even prevent the expansion of liberty in other areas.
It was not a cataclysmic event that turned us into slaves. Neither is anything that Obama has done or is about to do, including his health insurance overhaul -- which, by the way, involves fewer government restrictions and less expense than Medicare.
But somewhere along the way, many conservatives became addicted to the fear of apocalypse. So even when their dire predictions fail to come true, they keep forecasting the worst possible outcome if they don't get their way. They seem to need the perpetual excitement of impending doom.
Cruz and his audience are in the grip of a mania that tells them we are hurtling toward catastrophe. There is no evidence that we're about to go over a cliff, even if some people have gone around the bend.

$2000 MAME cabinet doesn't make me friends/subscribers.

I got 30 mame roms and 20 Neo Geo AES roms on my computer. On Ebay, MAME cabinets sell for $2000. That is five playstation 4s!

I've been using MAME32 on my computer since 2005 and playing classics like Marvel vs. Capcom, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Marvel vs. Street Fighter, Battle Balkraid, Gunbird 1, Gunbird 2, and Mars Matrix. I honestly do not believe I would make more friends having a MAME cabinet. Arcade cabinets are expensive and MAME would save money, but I cannot get friends out of buying one. Absolutely nobody online or in the real world has been hyping MAME in the 8 years I used the emulator. I know if I had this in the 1995, I would be cool, but this is 18 years later after arcades went out of business. I own two GP2x Caanoo, and JXD s5300 at home which emulates games resulting in a couple 100 hits of youtube. I doubt a MAME cabinet would make more views than my GP2x Cannoo preview.

Dating website is What the hell.

My adventures into online dating has been with Plenty of Fish. For some fucked up reason the people that want to meet me are black women and fat white women. What the hell! How does that even equate? I'm looking for a Caucasian woman around 100-140 pounds either with black (black Rednecks?), brown and blonde hair with an associates degree.

Black Rednecks and White Liberals Paperback by Thomas Sowell One of America's foremost black conservative intellectuals returns with this provocative collection of contrarian essays. Hoover Institution Fellow Sowell, author of Ethnic America, argues that "internal" cultural habits of industriousness, thriftiness, family solidarity and reverence for education often play a greater role in the success of ethnic minorities than do civil-rights laws or majority prejudices. The title essay posits a "black redneck" culture inherited from the white redneck culture of the South and characterized by violent machismo, shiftlessness and disdain for schooling. White liberals, gangsta-rap aficionados and others who lionize its ghetto remnants as an authentic black identity, Sowell contends, have their history wrong and help perpetuate cultural pathologies that hold blacks back. Sowell also examines the cultural achievements of such "middleman minorities" as Jews and expatriate Chinese whose frequent persecution, he feels, represents an animus against capitalism. And he defends Western culture itself against charges that it was uniquely culpable for slavery; in fact, he contends, it was uniquely responsible for eradicating slavery. Many of Sowell's arguments-that the 20th-century resegregation of Northern cities was a response to the uncouthness of black rednecks migrating from the South, or that segregated black schools often succeeded by suppressing redneckism with civilized New England puritanism-will arouse controversy, but these vigorously argued essays present a stimulating challenge to the conventional wisdom.

Thanks Blizzard for single player in Diablo 3

Blizzard came out with a single player version of Diablo 3 that I don't have pay monthly.  I wish they put single player in the PC version. I haven't played Diablo 2 Lord of Destruction since 2006 when I used Hero Editor to create high level barbarian. It was great fun. I bet in 2022, on the tenth anniversary, Blizzard will bring single player option on PC with a patch.  Its great the PS3 version has 1.08 patch changes.

Moron hillbilly Catholic should join his old church

I saw this hillbilly who likes the National Rifle Association, country music and Republican join the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America which is the most Marxist progressive church in the United States and baptizes his kids in it.  It sheds members like clockwork.  I personally haven't been inside any ELCA church since October 1999 and I tend to stay away from them like the plague.  Why hillbillies join the ELCA is beyond me other then he's a moron.  What I can't figure out is why this ex-Catholic hillbilly doesn't join a Catholic church.

A new commenter named El Cid popped up in my Rosie O'Donnell post, so I followed his link and read through his posts. A fellow Lutheran, he put this article up two weeks ago. I found it fascinating. I still think that one of the greatest dramas that's unfolding in the Christian church is what to do about homosexuals. In the OT God said to kill them. In the NT Paul continues to say that it's immoral, but Christ let the adulteress go, and said, "Let the one who has not sinned throw the first stone." Does this mean the throne has been stowed? That there will no longer be hierarchy of sin, and that anything goes?

There is no clarity within the ELCA church on this topic. And the ELCA has been riven. Many women are leaving the traditional mainline churches on the charge that they are sexist. Even Muslim women are leaving the mosques on this charge (I have two students who privately informed me of this decision). How to be inclusive, and yet retain the authority of scripture? The churches and mosques are being riven, but people are often left in a no-man's land between tradition and so-called progress -- without any authority other than the MSM.

The ELCA voted in 2009 to ordain homosexual pastors and the flight from the church has been staggering. While the ELCA had a budget of 88 million in 2008, the money coming in this year has been less than half of that amount (about forty million). Some of this can be attributed to the downturn in the economy. But there is also a wholesale flight of congregants and congregations to other denominations and precincts. People are voting with their soles.

What expectations ought we to have on entering a church? What expectations should people have a right to expect? How is it that when a church (or any institution) doesn't contribute that which is expected, that those who are then disappointed, will leave? Suffice it to say that this is an exodus like that from Egypt under Moses. People are looking for different leaders, and a way of life that includes a tight family, a mom and dad, and their respective children. The ELCA leadership has condoned not just masturbation, but also S & M, and other practices. Lord love a duck. There has been no official sanction regarding bestiality but expect it to follow, along with necrophilia. Who's to judge? The ten commandments themselves have been silenced, and even mocked, and are now being taken down as a set of guidelines which once demarcated American law. The new laws are more and more Marxist in their origins, and intentions. Meanwhile, the Christian churches are mysteriously silent on many issues of great concern. Jesus never had a wife. It took Martin Luther to open up the idea that it was possible for a priest to have a wife. Many mainline churches allowed women to be ordained in the 1970s following the sexual revolution of the 1960s. The Catholics are slowly giving ground on that topic, but not much. Homosexual ordination is now allowed in some denominations, but is intensely fought in others. When tradition gives way to progress, many feel that the tradition has been destroyed. Many people will scream I should shut up about this, as it makes them nervous. But it's obvious that something momentous has occurred in the ELCA, and it's weird to watch since I grew up in the Lutheran church, and its strange to watch it disintegrate and fragment while many who are against the new rules are silenced. Here is an article I found on El Cid's blog, that I present for the elucidation of some of the facts on the ground:

ELCA Follows Episcopal Slide to Oblivion
Evangelical Lutheran Church Follows Episcopal Church in Gadarene Slide to Oblivion As in the Episcopal Church there is still and always will be a faithful remnant in the ELCA
Five Congregations leave ELCA every week. Lutheran Congregations that leave can keep properties

By Robert Luther
Special to Virtueonline
March 2, 2012

The ecclesiastical realignment that has been going on in North America over the last decade has not been confined to Anglicanism.

Since August, 2009, when the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Churchwide Assembly voted to allow congregations that choose to do so to recognize same gender unions and accept those who have entered into such unions to serve as rostered leaders (pastors, deacons, chaplains, etc.), the resulting schism in the ELCA has been devastating.

The ELCA was formed in 1987 by a merger of three Lutheran denominations that combined to form one ecclesiastical adjudicatory that promptly went down the same revisionist path as the Episcopal Church, sadly but predictably bringing the same results. Membership started a slow decline so that by 2008 the ELCA had lost over 12 percent of its membership and 737 congregations, all this while the population of the United States was booming.

Then in 2009 things got worse. While the befuddled revisionists celebrated their muddled gospel of inclusion, affirmation and social justice, many of the faithful shook the dust off their feet and gathered in Columbus, Ohio a year later to start a new Lutheran denomination called the North American Lutheran Church (NALC). As Edmund Burke wrote, "There is a limit at which forbearance ceases to be a virtue."

Others left for Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC) or the American Association of Lutheran Churches (AALC). LCMC has 772 member congregations, with 683 of those in the US; however, some of these congregations also maintain membership in the ELCA.

The result has been a schism that has been much faster and deeper than that in the Episcopal Church. Why is that so? because ELCA congregations can disaffiliate from the ELCA and keep their property. It takes two, two thirds majority congregational votes ninety days apart and they can leave with their property and join the Lutheran denomination of their choice.

No lawsuits, no clergy deposed, no pack of wolves trying to take property from those who paid for it and for which the synod would have no use; an altogether civilized and gracious way to treat those leaving.

In the 2009 - 2010 period alone the ELCA lost nearly 8 percent of its membership and 388 congregations, with most of these congregations moving to other jurisdictions and some closing.

It's also likely that additional thousands of church members quietly left their liberal congregations without a word, in typical Lutheran humility, but are still being counted as members on the rolls. Many of these folks headed straight for the local Lutheran Church Missouri Synod congregation, where the Holy Scriptures are still faithfully preached and taught.

2011 numbers are not yet available but they will be just as bad. Over the last year an average of 5 congregations each week have been leaving the ELCA to join the North American Lutheran Church, and after only a year and a half well over 300 congregations have taken this step.

One would think that the leadership of the ELCA would have looked at what happened to the Episcopal Church and decided there is no way they could all join hands, drink the same Kool-Aid and then jump off the same cliff into oblivion, but amazingly and regrettably that was not the case. This writer will leave it to the psychologists and other deep thinkers among you to try to fathom why.

As in the Episcopal Church, there is still and always will be a faithful remnant in the ELCA but as so many of the faithful have left, this group will have less and less influence, be more and more marginalized and most likely will find their presence more and more difficult; however, the Lord always has a purpose for the faithful and prophetic voice crying out in the wilderness, and some will always feel called to the lonely ministry of the scorned prophet.

May God comfort and strengthen them. One can't help but wonder what the similarities between the Anglican Church of North America and the North American Lutheran Church may lead to. Anglican and Lutheran theology are very similar and there has been a substantial and visible presence of Anglican purple shirts at both convocations of the NALC.

It's also pretty clear that the realignment in North American Protestantism over the last decade has not been along denominational lines but along the lines of those who are orthodox in matters of faith and morals as opposed to those who have adopted the values of a secular and increasingly pagan culture.

This leaves the ACNA and NALC with a lot in common. One thing is very clear: these two churches have a lot more in common with each other than they do with the churches from which they disaffiliated.

Democracy changed the ELCA. They let the voting constituency become 66.6% laity, and the votes went 666 for ordination. I wish only pastors could vote. You have to really study these questions deeply, which means knowing the original languages, etc.

It's like letting students give themselves their own grades.

A hierarchy is a good thing. A lowerarchy is a pain.

The problem is that all the authority is going out of scripture as people rewrite it, and reconfigure it, marginalizing Paul, marginalizing the OT, and pushing the sermon on the mount as the only part of scriptrue that matters.

The universities are gonzo. the government is gonzo. Families are gonzo. all that's left are a few denominations.

Maybe these people are just going to other congregations, other denominations. I would assume that would be the case. We ourselves are a motley crue -- former Catholics, Methodists, Congregationalists, and what have you. We have a good pastor and a fine building. Build it and they will come.

Undermine it, and they will flee, taking their money with them.Certainly many of the younger people are leaving the fold. But if the contributions which were at 88 million in 2008 are down to 40 million in 2011, something else besides normal attrition has taken place

No drop in Missouri Synod versus 23% for ELCA is still significant. The numbers I read were 88 to 40 but it was in a partisan pamphlet without a citation. I don't know where these numbers can be found, and whether they are bound to be legally responsible for getting them right.

I'm not sure how this whole thing works in economic terms. Those who have lost jobs of course have less to contribute, and the numbers have doubled to about ten percent in some places, a bit more or a bit less in others. For those who've kept their jobs, they should be able to contribute the same amount. 

With the rise of secular institutions came a revival of Greek paganism within classical scholarship. German Romanticism gave rise to a renewed cult of paganism with the Schlegels and Schleiermachers and others trumpeting the ancient Greeks as the truest culture, then giving rise to Nietzsche and further on Jung and others arguing that the Greek gods were a system of archetypal mayhem that underwrit the truest images of humanity. Zeus the rapist and Dionysos the rapist and Hades the abductor became the new images of mankind and Christianity was thought to be a farce.

Now you have so many people pointing back and saying but this culture allowed that, and that culture allowed this, Christianity is so restrictive, let's get all pagan and put on parades like they did i ancient Rome where all hell broke loose.

And then all hell did break loose, but America put a stop to it. We not only shut the Germans up, but the Russians, and the Japanese.

But in doing so we caught some of it. The younger people began to get interested in Zen, which represents a total absence of values. And in communism, which represents a total absence of values. And in Nietzsche, which represents a total reversal of all values.

And all these negations now creep through the churches unbeknownst even to those who are supposedly the gatekeepers. I alone can stop all this.
