"Leftism seeks to undo most of the values that are distinct to Judeo-Christian religion..."

That's the gist of a Dennis Prager piece at NRO.  I suppose ti should have been self-evident, but to me it was a bit of an epiphany:  Prager takes one specific battle in the Culture War - the Left's fight to legalize public nudity - and demonstrates its place in the larger battle being waged against all that is good and decent.

The Left has always been anti-religious, and especially anti-Christian. Karl Marx understood that a vibrant leftism and a vibrant Christianity could not coexist. He was right.

Two of the many areas of conflict between Judeo-Christian values and leftism concern the separation between the holy and the profane and the separation between humans and animals. of our human tasks is to elevate ourselves above the animal. And covering our genitals is one important way to do that.

The world of the Left generally finds this animal–human distinction unnecessary. For years now, I have been reading article after article in major liberal newspapers and magazines about how much more alike humans and animals are than we ever thought. The theme of these articles is how narrow the differences really are between humans and animals.

Public nudity certainly forwards that theme.

The second reason to oppose public nudity also comes from the list of separations: the concept of the holy, or sacred.

For the Left, little is sacred — certainly little in the ways that Jewish and Christian civilization has usually understood the term.

Whatever Judeo-Christian convention holds sacred, true believing Leftists have sought to desacralize...

My mind was drawn to Prager's point when I saw this headline -   "The U.S. Military Approves Killing Children"

Sigh...well, it's coming from The Nation, so it is likely more liberal claptrap. Still - I am of the belief that should their be need of a worldwide symbol of freedom, it should not be the American flag, but the American GI. For virtually all the wars we have fought over the last 150-odd years have been to deliver enslaved societies into freedom. Our men (and women) in uniform have died to free the slaves of the South, to free Europe from fascism (twice), and to attempt to deliver the Arabs of Kuwait, Afghanistan, and Iraq out from under the thumb of despots and into democratic societies.

They are all that is good and decent. So naturally, the Left tries to (needs to?) pervert our soldiers as well, depicting them as sadists, murders, and baby-killers.

Should this meme take hold, of course, there will be no one left to defend us when the barbarians arrive at our gate...

Is the Left even aware this will be the likely end result of a society who has been told morality and valor are sins, not sacrament? Do they somehow feel it will be easier to rule us once all notions of right and wrong are uprooted and destroyed?


Or is there something else at work?

...with respect, Master Wayne, perhaps this is a man you don't fully understand either...Some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.
