Notre Dame Burns

The official speculation from mainstream media is that it has something to do with the renovation work going on.  That alone should tell you it’s probably something else.  The odds of one of the most prominent symbols of Christianity burning in the holiest week on the Christian calendar seems like a stretch.

Who knows if the truth will ever actually come out.  It is completely fair to speculate that it could absolutely have been done intentionally by someone or a group of people who may not share the Christian values that France once had as part of the West.  Speculate all you want.  And given that there was 875 of France’s churches vandalized last year alone it is entirely justified to wonder if that is the culprit here too.

Sadly, this is a very fitting image to describe what’s going on in the West right now.  Christianity is under attack.  Our values are under attack.  The question is when will the tide completely turn and when will people start pushing back?  And how hard?  You can already feel the pendulum swinging back culturally a little bit, but it has a long way to go.  It wouldn’t shock me at all if they discovered this was the result of Muslim terrorism, and it wouldn’t shock me at all if they completely buried that story either.  There might actually, finally, be enough outrage to boil over and start to take back what is rightfully theirs.  Paris is not the Paris you remembered even 10 years ago.  It is completely overrun.  That’s the same story in much of the West.  And unless people start to stand up for their convictions, they will only continue to get bolder.

Of course, with any tragedy, you will have true scum who will try to insert their own agenda.  Enter the worm that is Ben Shapiro.

ShapiroNotreDame

Literally NOTHING about Notre Dame has to do with Judaism.  It is one of the most prominent Catholic structures on Earth.  There is no such thing as Judeo-Christian values, morality, whatever.  It is a lie.  A nonsense term.  A Judeo-Christian is a Jew who converts to Christianity.  Other than that the term is meaningless.  Well, not entirely meaningless.  The intent of the term is to obfuscate the truth.  To somehow make it sound like Jewish values had anything to do with the building of the West.  Ben goes into this lie in far more detail in the book he released last month which uses that term quite a lot.  Ben Shapiro is controlled opposition.  He is propped up to appear like he is an ally of “the right” when in fact he is anything but.  I single him out specifically here because he is a charlatan and it seems like a lot of people on the right think he is an ally.

Christians around the world have a right to be upset and mad about what happened in Paris today.  If there is any silver lining on this, it could be if Christians rally to start to fight back and stand up for what they believe in.  To take back their faith from those who have infested various churches and fundamentally altered Christ’s teachings for their own nefarious purposes.  The number of churches converged today is staggering.  And if it ever does come out that this was a hate crime, it would do France and the West a lot of good to start expelling those who have no interest in Western values, and no intention of assimilating.  Otherwise, if you let the wolf in the front door, you only have yourself to blame for what happens next.

The Triumphal Entry

Luke 19:28-44 (ESV)

The Triumphal Entry

28 And when he had said these things, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. 29 When he drew near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount that is called Olivet, he sent two of the disciples, 30 saying, “Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever yet sat. Untie it and bring it here. 31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ you shall say this: ‘The Lord has need of it.’” 32 So those who were sent went away and found it just as he had told them. 33 And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34 And they said, “The Lord has need of it.” 35 And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. 36 And as he rode along, they spread their cloaks on the road. 37 As he was drawing near—already on the way down the Mount of Olives—the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, 38 saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!” 39 And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” 40 He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”

Jesus Weeps over Jerusalem

41 And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it, 42 saying, “Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43 For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side 44 and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”

California: A Degenerate Playground for Adults

California may be the epicenter for the societal decay going on in the West right now.  California is a perverted version of Neverland for adults.  Nobody there wants to grow up.  The pursuit of pleasure and escape from reality is the main motivator for far more adults there than many would think.

People are waiting longer and longer to get married, if they get married at all.  California has the 7th highest age for women to get married, behind other liberal dens of degeneration like New York, Massachusetts, and Washington DC (though not a state, this was the highest age for all women, at 30).  You may wonder why that matters.  Well, when women put off child-rearing that late, the chances they will even try to have kids at all surely declines the older a woman gets.  Couple that with the phenomena of “dog moms” and you have a recipe for generational disaster.  What’s a dog mom, you ask?  Peruse any dating app in California and you are inevitably inundated with dog moms, or women who own dogs and proclaim themselves as dog moms.  They call them their babies.  You can see women stop each other on the street fawning over each other’s dogs the way mothers used to do this with babies.  It’s almost as if they’re trying to satiate an innate urge deep down…but what do I know.  Biology is a social construct, right?  My theory on this is they have that motherly urge, but having a child is too much responsibility in their eyes, and plus who wants to put on all that extra weight, amirite?  It’s so much easier to be a career woman and only have to walk and take care of a dog when you get home from work anyways.  This may sound harsh, but this is the state of things.

Guys aren’t any better.  You can see dudes over 40 years old skateboarding everywhere in the coastal California cities.  Grown adults of both genders zip around on those electric scooters and bikes.  Then after a long day of work, if one has a job, what better way to relax and unwind than smoking a bowl on the beach maaaan?  “It’s 4:20 somewhere” is a common billboard you’ll see everywhere.  Marijuana billboards dot the landscape.  Advertising to adults to smoke weed to help…your hangover.

marijuana.billboard.pesky.hangover

Again, many will say “are all these things really that big a deal?”.  “Why does it matter?”

Yes, it does matter.  When you’ve raised a whole generation or two to endlessly pursue only pleasure, in the YOLO generation, it does effect the fabric of society.  We may not feel it right away, much like we didn’t feel the effects of tolerating all sorts of perversion and bad behavior right away, in a still largely Christian society, but we are starting to see and feel it.  The pursuit of pleasure as an ultimate endpoint is empty.  It is not gratifying.  More young adults are on anti-depressants than ever before.  Single women, if not dog moms, buy cats to fill that empty void.

I’m sure California isn’t the only place with this issue of adults who never really grew up, but in a place with near perfect weather and cushy benefits to those who do not work, the problem is probably worse there than most other places.  Perfect weather, the epicenter of the porn industry, lax drug laws, and a liberal mentality that takes all responsibility off of the people of the state, and you have a recipe for disaster.

Not to beat a dead horse here, but it does require constant reminding, and the idea needs to spread in general, that Western civilization fundamentally depends on Christianity.  Without it, we do not have a western society.  Connect the dots.  Contrast the ultimate aim of a Christian to that of one who feels there is no higher purpose and that there is nothing beyond this life.  Without that higher calling, it is easy to see how one could fall into the “you only live once” mentality.  Christians fundamentally have longer time preferences.  Longer time preferences enable the ability to delay gratification.  Christianity encourages family building (go forth and multiply).  When you have a family, and you have children who depend on you, your purpose becomes greater than yourself.  You want to leave the world a better place than the way you inherited it so your children can live better lives.  And this is passed on from generation to generation.  It sounds so simple, so obvious, but look how far we’ve strayed from this.  It’s no wonder there are more homeless people today and more people on welfare today than ever before.  California cities are filthy.  San Diego sidewalks reek of piss everywhere.  You can download an app to report human feces in the streets of San Francisco.

Liberal paradise

When you have nobody but yourself to live for, what point is there to save up money if you aren’t going to pass it on to anybody?  Who cares if you suck off the tit of the state?  And when you take no responsibility for your actions, and don’t care about future generations because “whatever, I won’t be alive for it anyway”, it is easy to see how people could vote for policies that literally kill off future generations (look up how many abortions have been performed) and be okay with allowing anyone and everyone to come into the country unchecked, legally or illegally.  If you think there’s nothing beyond this life it becomes awfully easy to justify bad behavior.  So yes, it does matter.

Globalism = disloyalty

Ahh, the joys of globalism.  It was recently reported that Microsoft is working with China to develop artificial intelligence with a Chinese military university.

Tech giant Microsoft has reportedly been working on artificial intelligence research with a Chinese military-run university, recent reports claim that the research could be used for both surveillance and censorship.

Tech giant Microsoft has been working with a Chinese military-operated university on research relating to A.I. which could be used for surveillance and censorship practices, according to the Financial Times. Between March and November, three scientific studies were published which were co-written by academics from the Microsoft Research Asia in Beijing. Other researchers involved in the studies had close affiliations to China’s National University of Defense Technology (NUDT).

Senior fellow at the New America think tank and China tech expert Samm Sacks commented on the possible issues of collaboration between Microsoft and the Chinese military-run university, stating that the recently published papers raised “red flags because of the nature of the technology, the author affiliations, combined with what we know about how this technology is being deployed in China right now.” Sacks added: “The [Chinese] government is using these technologies to build surveillance systems and to detain minorities [in Xinjiang].”

In a world where we are told we must embrace globalism, no borders, and by default no loyalty to one’s country, is it any wonder corporate giants like Microsoft feel no loyalty to the United States?  Most corporate giants today in the United States treat it like a cheap whore they can pump and dump.  They keep their operations based here, but post their profits in foreign countries to pay far less taxes than they are supposed to.  Some don’t even have to do that.  Amazon made a cool $11.2 billion last year but paid…$0 in taxes in 2018.  And now to add insult to injury we have Microsoft directly aiding a foreign state to bolster their military.  China already steals $600 billion a year from us in intellectual property.  That’s billion, with a ‘b’.  It is only a matter of time before they use their AI against us (they probably already are), all the while having Microsoft benefit and we get the double whammy of surveillance used against us and very little if any tax money fed back into the US economy.  Lovely.

On some level can you even blame Microsoft?  It is a faceless corporation led by globalists with zero loyalty.  When we’ve stripped away any sense of loyalty to the state, and give the lightest of slaps on the wrist for penalties for severe crimes, the temptation is too great for some not to take advantage of the system.  Couple this with the continued de-Christianizing of the country and you strip any sense of morality from the day-to-day business operations of huge giants like this.  And with the corporation not being an actual person with the same legal ramifications, it is easy to pass the buck and avoid any sort of real blame or real repercussions on an individual basis.  Profits are the bottom line for publicly traded corporations like Microsoft.  Any way to squeeze a few more cents in the stock share for a quarter is worth it to them, by any means necessary, morality be damned.  Contrast that to a private company with Christian morals like Chick-fil-A, which does not have to worry about how quarterly profits will effect their stock price, and they can afford to still try and uphold a moral standard and the personal beliefs of its owners, which allows them to do things like close their stores on Sundays.

I do wonder about this Pope

This clip is a couple years old now but I stumbled on it the other day.

And His life, humanly speaking, ended in failure.  The failure of the cross.

-Pope Francis

I’m not Catholic, but that seems like a pretty insane statement coming from the head of the church and the head of the largest Christian denomination.  Pope Francis has made a lot of questionable statements in his tenure.  The Catholic church needs a serious housecleaning, perhaps from the very top all the way down.

A Reminder

1 John 3:4-10 is as relevant as ever as we continue to see the West become less Christian.

Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness.You know that he appeared in order to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him. Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous. Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s[b]seed abides in him; and he cannot keep on sinning, because he has been born of God. 10 By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.

It seems like we took morality for granted as if it could be uncoupled from Christianity in the West.  As we witness the decline of the West it is abundantly clear that where Christianity is removed sin and lawlessness abound.

More signs of moral rot

Real evil exists.  It is not just some abstract concept or metaphor.  You can see it and feel it every day.  And those filled with evil always seem to prey on our children.  Amazon has, until just very recently, been selling sex dolls that look like children.

In a stunning discovery, Amazon has sex dolls that look like children for sale on their site. A company called DVKFP has sex dolls, that are clearly meant to target pedophiles and represent children, listed on Amazon including a promise for “hidden delivery.”

One clearly shows an underdeveloped child’s body with no breasts and little girl headband while another has photos of what looks to be a young teen tied up with rope with torn clothes and a bloody gag in her mouth.

The legality of child-like sex dolls is muddy. On one hand, our obscenity and child porn laws are very strong and include even cartoons or depictions of children in sexual situations as illegal, but are rarely enforced against Hollywood or the arts community.

Lawmakers in Florida have taken action to attempt to stop the sale of dolls like these with a law called the CREEPER Act (Curbing Realistic Exploitative Electronic Pedophilic Robots Act) that was passed in the U.S. Congress but died in the Senate Judiciary Committee. Just last week, a similar Florida law headed to the Senate floor for a vote:

Sen. Lauren Book sponsored  SB 160 amid an international conversation surrounding child sex dolls and their link to increased sexual preying on children.

The bill would make it a first-degree misdemeanor to own, show, lend, sell or advertise child sex dolls. If someone possesses one without the intent to do the above, it would be a second-degree misdemeanor. And if someone does it more than once, it would become a third-degree felony.

Critics of the bill claim that men use these dolls to avoid molesting children, but there is no evidence that it works. Research in the UK has shown that people who buy these dolls are likely to have child porn in their possession, and child porn unquestionably harms children. As reported by The Hill:

In the United Kingdom, which already has a ban similar to [the CREEPER Act], authorities have seized 128 dolls this year. Eighty-five percent of the men who imported them were also found in possession of child pornography. These individuals didn’t use the dolls as a substitute. They used them to supplement their stash of kiddy porn.

Disgusting.  And the only reason they took them down was the eventual flak they were hearing from people, not because they had any sort of change of conscious.  Does it really need to be said that selling sex dolls that look like children is absolutely disgusting and unacceptable?  Even the biggest doubters have to start seeing what a non-Christian western society looks like, and it is not the pretty utopia they have all hoped and dreams for “if only we could abolish religion” blah blah blah.  The reasoning for that bill not passing are despicable as well.  This only feeds their sick fantasies more, not prevent them from playing them out.  It emboldens them.  Normalizes their sick behavior.  Many have speculated for some time now that after first normalizing homosexuality, then transgenders, that pedophelia would be the next thing they would go for.  People balked.  Doesn’t seem so far-fetched now, does it?

Disgusting

THIS IS NOT HEALTHY.  Amazon screenshot source: PJ Media

Pray for our children.    This world is fallen.  Evil is everywhere and our children are especially at risk.  That does not mean we should not have children or fight back.  It serves as a reminder that what we had is something worth fighting for, and needs to be fought for all the time.  We as a society got lazy, complacent, and cocky.  Thinking we had it all figured out.  People thought we were beyond Christianity.  That was Nietzsche’s blind spot.  He grew up in a moral and Christian civilization and thought we could dispose of the latter to ascend to the level of the Ubermensch.  I wonder if he’d be singing a different tune if he stepped into his non-Christian world today.  See what Germany and the West has become.

Look beyond the narrative

I am willing to bet most of you did not hear about the attack two weeks ago where at least 32 Christians were slaughtered in a village in Nigeria, along with having at least one of their churches burned to the ground and a hundred more displaced, by a Muslim group.

At least 32 Christians were killed by suspected Fulani extremists in Nigeria Tuesday, sources told a leading Christian persecution monitoring group.

The early-morning attack occurred in the district of Maro in the Kaduna state of north-central Nigeria, according to reports. In addition to the loss of life, homes and at least one church were burned as hundreds were displaced. Some homes even reportedly had sleeping residents inside when they were lit on fire.

“Please pray for peace in Kaduna state — hundreds have been displaced and hundreds killed by the Fulani jihadists,” The Rev. Bakari Ibrahim, director of the ECWA’s Evangelical Missionary Society, told Morning Star News. “We evacuated about a hundred EMS kids from Kufana for safety.”

Resident Mordecai Funom Ibrahim told the persecution news outlet that about 400 armed Fulanis attacked villages around Maro around 6 a.m. Tuesday.

At the time of the attack, a group of women affiliated with the ECWA had gathered for a meeting at the local church.

“We ran out of the church building as the shooting was going on,” one of the women from the group told Morning Star News. “Many have been killed, and I have not seen my family members since morning. I have escaped out of the area.”

This was not a one time event either.  Last week 52 more Christians were killed and the death toll is over 120 since February by the same alleged Fulani militant group.

Hmmm.  A religiously motivated attack on a large group of people.  Where have I heard about this recently?

This is not meant to take anything away from the horrific New Zealand attacks of the past week.  It is merely to point out the hypocrisy in the reporting and the absolutely disgusting state we are in.  There is a lot of speculation regarding the New Zealand shooter.  Whether this really was an attack pushing back on multiculturalism, was religiously motivated, or a false flag (there is credible evidence for both) the point is the mainstream media pushed one story very hard and the other one doesn’t even get a 10 second mention on most, if any, mainstream news sites.  Why?

We know why.  One fits the narrative and their motivations, the other does not.  What better way to push gun control than having a white guy slaughter dozens of people of color?  Sure, we can even paint him as a far-right extremist.  That works.  Given the ground the deep state has ceded and their obvious desperation this would not be at all surprising if this was done themselves.  There are a lot of attacks like that recently, and we have expected them for a while now as they continue to lose a battle not being talked about publicly.  And it gives them something to point to the right and say, “See!  They’re the violent ones!  Ban guns!” while the feral left continues to ramp up the violence themselves.  A story of (brown) Muslims slaughtering Christians does not help further their objectives at all.

They also do this to paint a false picture about the amount of violence or crime a particular group does; to either disproportionately pump up and make you think one group does a lot more violence of a particular sort, or to bury stories to cover up the amount of crime done by a particular group to make it seem like it’s far less than is actually happening.  Something tells me the general public would be far more vocal about 3rd world immigration if they saw the number of religiously motivated attacks that happen on a daily basis.  Or maybe they’d reconsider the underlying problem, if they really wanted to fix the problem, if they honestly reported on the amount of violence in Chicago every day.  Instead they push stories like this, which make you think insane white dudes regularly shoot up churches with big weapons and that it’s a glaring problem that requires support on both sides to fix immediately.

The mainstream media does not actually care about the victims of the New Zealand shooting.  They just used it as a way to push their agenda.  Christians are one of if not the most persecuted groups in the Middle East but you never hear about attacks on them.  When is the last time you heard a call from the MSM to accept more Christian refugees, aside from maybe Tucker Carlson?

Tear it all down

It is becoming abundantly clear at this point that the rot is too deep to salvage anything.  It is like a stage 4 cancer patient with metastasis everywhere.  By trying to resect each tumor you leave nothing left.  Here’s the latest treason going on in the 9th district courts.

While everyone sleeps, the courts are abolishing all immigration enforcement

· March 11, 2019

Congress could never get away with creating constitutional rights for illegal aliens to remain here, yet a single lower court just did so on Thursday. And where Congress would face deep reprisal in the next election, faceless judges will never feel the heat.

Conservatives fear that extreme Democrats might actually abolish ICE and all immigration enforcement, but the lower courts are already systematically abolishing ICE’s authority, nullifying immigration enforcement statutes, violating separation of powers, and constantly increasing the wave of bogus asylum-seekers that they originally spawned with other radical rulings. The latest ruling from the Ninth Circuit demonstrates that unless Republicans and the president begin pushing back against these radical judges and delegitimizing their rulings, Democrats will get everything they want without ever facing electoral backlash or even the need to win elections.

It’s truly hard to overstate the outrageously harmful effects of Thursday’s Ninth Circuit ruling. For the first time in our history, the courts have fabricated a constitutional right for those denied asylum to appeal to federal courts for any reason.

Here’s the background.

Hundreds of thousands of migrants are flooding our border, claiming the formula of “credible fear” of persecution. They get to stay indefinitely while they ignore their court dates in immigration court. Because of an amalgamation of several prior activist court rulings, mainly by this very circuit, roughly 90 percent of credible fear claims are approved by asylum officers and the claimants shielded from deportation, even though asylum status is ultimately rejected almost every time by an immigration judge. Unfortunately, by that point it’s too late for the American people, who are stuck with the vast majority of these claimants remaining indefinitely in the country. Yet rather than ending this sham incentive, the Ninth Circuit drove a truck through immigration law by asserting that there is now a constitutional right for even the few who are denied initial credible fear status and are placed in deportation proceedings to appeal their denials, not just to an administrative immigration judge but to a federal Article III judge for any reason.

In past cases, the courts merely twisted statutes and contorted their plain meaning. In this case, for the first time ever and in direct contrast to a ruling by the Third Circuit in 2016, the Ninth Circuit ruled that the immigration statute that denies the federal courts jurisdiction to hear such appeals is unconstitutional under the constitutional requirement of habeas corpus, thereby giving 7.8 billion people in the world habeas corpus access to our courts. This will allow numerous illegal aliens, including the brand-new ones entering now, to stay indefinitely while they litigate themselves into status. The ACLU, which of course led this lawsuit on behalf of a Sri Lankan migrant denied asylum, wasn’t kidding when it proclaimed, “The historical and practical importance of this ruling cannot be overstated.”

And lastly, further down:

Justice Robert Jackson, the great champion of due process and the dissenter in the Japanese internment case, described it this way: “Due process does not invest any alien with a right to enter the United States, nor confer on those admitted the right to remain against the national will.” Due process for aliens in the context of immigration decisions is whatever Congress says it is. As the court said in Lem Moon Sing v. United States, “The decisions of executive or administrative officers, acting within powers expressly conferred by Congress, are due process of law.” Liberals have been trying to attack this for decades and ensure that even the aliens we successfully deport expeditiously (increasingly a small number) can remain here indefinitely and tie up our courts with lawsuits. If we allow this game to continue, the flow at our border will make what Europe is dealing with look like child’s play.

The entire article is worth a read.  But I really fear our government is stage 4 at this point.  I have no doubt President Trump is trying to salvage what he can, but when the entire system is rotten to the core, Congress, the courts, the ABC agencies, if he just mass arrested everyone now there would be nothing left and functionally probably an unviable government for the time being.  And I think he is still in the mindset that he wants to ease us into the pain as softly as possible.

The reality is this is going to be an ugly fall all around.  President Trump has done some amazing things, but it is definitely too little too late.  All of these parts are interconnected.  And while he is doing a great job with the economy, that will suffer hard too along with everything else.  The best thing at this point is to pull the plug, expose everything, and rebuild our institutions from the ground up.  Before that can even be done there will likely be civil war in this country.  America as we once knew it is effectively dead.  It is better to face and acknowledge that reality rather than cover our ears and sing to ourselves that everything is okay.

We have lost the rule of law.  We have lost the will to prosecute those violating said laws.  We have even lost the moral imperative.  The wizards want you to think that everything is subjective; that there is no objective truth.  When you accept that you also implicitly accept that evil can be acceptable and rationalized.  All of these are connected with turning away from Christianity as a society.  Evil has woven itself so tightly into our government and our institutions that to combat the evil means destroying the very institutions we are trying to save.

At this point, just do what you can to protect your family.  You will not want to be living in a big city when the proverbial shit hits the fan.  Try and become self-sufficient.  Learn actual skills that can be applied off the internet.  Grow a garden.  Arm up.  We didn’t want it to end this way but we would be fools to see the writing on the wall and not do anything to prepare for it.  And pray.  A lot.

Speaking the truth

Matthew 5:37 New King James Version (NKJV)

37 But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.

If you aren’t already following Vox Day’s blog I highly suggest that you do.  This is a passage he often brings up.

There are signs all around us that western civilization is crumbling.  Much of it has to do with the removal of Christianity from the equation, one of the three main pillars of western civilization.  I could be wrong, but in no other major religion is it explicitly stated to always tell the truth.  This is a distinctly Christian value.  There are exceptions where one can lie in Judaism, and lying is explicitly allowed in Islam as well.  Contrary to what many may think, telling the truth is not a self-evident virtue.  Nor is it part of Judeo-Christian morality, as this is a made up term and does not exist.

There may be no more telling evidence of how important Christianity is to western civilization than this.  We see it every day, notably in politics and science.  And the more people accept and rationalize that it is okay to lie, and the more that it is done and allowed to be done without any repercussions, the worse it will continue to get.

Take politics.  There are very few people left in politics that one can say are truly Christian.  Combine this with a population that is becoming less Christian and you have a recipe for disaster.  Lying becomes normalized.  It becomes accepted.  Tolerated.  To the point where it becomes more surprising when someone is actually punished for lying than the other way around.  How many people have lied under oath and had no repercussions?  Who knows how many times Hillary Clinton has lied under oath.  The Benghazi fiasco is just one of probably many.  Swamp creature James Brennan lied under oath about the NSA spying on Americans.  The depths of lying under oath for the Hillary Clinton email scandal and Russia scandal witch hunt, with any luck, will all come out some day.  Lying has become normalized and expected.  And there are very few, if any, Christians left in Congress to stand up for the truth and enact punishments for these people who have committed perjury and often times treason.  No good Christian would lie under oath.  And anything goes for all of these non-Christians who are under oath and are lying outright.  Why not, if you think you can get away with it and see no other higher reason to tell the truth?

You see the same in the science community as well.  Scientific study was funded by churches early on, and many scientists were Christian.  Somehow throughout the years Christianity has been stigmatized in the science world, and Christians have been ridiculed and driven out in many disciplines.  Is it any surprise that science has a reproducibility crisis?  Even in the hard sciences!  When there is no greater purpose to tell the truth, to let your yes be yes and your no be no, anything can be rationalized.  When you tell yourself everything is subjective, that there is no objective truth, anything can be allowed.  “Oh, I need to fudge these numbers, or omit this piece of data that would refute my work, or I wouldn’t get the funding I need.”  Or lying to protect one’s life’s work, even if it is demonstrably false.

These are just two of many examples.  Humans are not inherently wired to tell the truth regardless of the situation.  It would do western civilization a world of good, and its very survival depends upon, restoring the pillar of Christianity to it.  To bring back Christian morals.  To let your yes be yes and your no be no, as Jesus Christ taught.
