Rep. Kevin Cramer of North Dakota (state rep, not federal) delivered the commencement address at the University of Mary, which, you may have guessed, is a Catholic college. What he delivered was a series of bewildering non-sequiturs that added up to little more than a list of complaints about how the world wasn’t the way he wanted it to be.
Just in the last several days, a Bismarck news anchor mistakenly uttered vulgarity on live television. He’s been heralded by celebrities from New York to California as some sort of pop icon. His bosses have been called goons because they fired him.
We learned this week that the Pentagon is vetting its guide on religious tolerance with a group that compared Christian evangelism to rape, and advocated that military personnel and colluding chaplains who proselytize should be court-marshalled.
Forty years ago, the United States Supreme Court sanctioned abortion on demand. And we wonder why our culture sees school shootings so often…Innocent people in New York have airplanes flown into their places of work, and marathoners in Boston are victims of bombs, yet Christianity is singled out as bigotry in our public institutions because politicians and academics lack the courage to speak truth. We’ve normalized perversion and perverted God’s natural law to the point where the only thing not tolerated anymore is a stand for truth.
Where does he get the idea that Christianity is “singled out as bigotry”? The Muslims who flew those planes into buildings were even worse than the typical Christian when it comes to bigotry. But guess what? They don’t actually have any influence over policy. Bigots like Cramer do. It’s like someone who is shooting at you with a shotgun pointing out that you’re not paying enough attention to another person with a grenade launcher attacking someone else in another country. The shotgun is going to be your primary concern.
