Stand Your Spiritual Ground

2019 February 1
by justrand

Several States have adopted laws which allow you to stand your physical ground when threatened…though these laws are under attack. Thankfully, most of us will never be in a position to test those laws…at least I pray we won’t.

BUT, if you are a Christian or Jew in America you WILL sooner or later be put in a position where you will need to stand your Spiritual ground…or surrender your faith.

Few, if any, are the laws which support standing your Spiritual ground. Just ask Colorado baker Jack Phillips, who had to go all the way to the Supreme Court to defend his right to exercise his creative talents when and where he chooses to…as dictated by his faith. He won that case…and was immediately sued again!

Just ask the Little Sisters of the Poor, who were set upon by the Obama Administration because they wouldn’t provide abortifacients. It had NOTHING to do with “contraceptives”, as Obama and his media lackeys claimed. No, the nuns objected to deliberately giving a woman a drug which would induce a miscarriage.

On the legal front, laws are being written and adopted across America that threaten virtually every aspect of Judeo-Christian faith and ethics. And the “Social Justice” armies of the Left (“entertainers”, “artists”, politicians and pundits) are telling us that standing our SPIRITUAL ground is worse than wrong…it’s at least one of a long line of horrible terms usually ending in “ist” or “ic” (Racist, Misogynist, Homophobic, Xenophobic, Islamophobic, etc…).

A young man from Covington Catholic High School stood his ground when he attended a Pro-Life rally in Washington D.C. The Social Justice hordes, aided as always by the media, manufactured flat out LIES to try and crucify him in every way but physically. And believe me, if they could have nailed him to a real cross they would have! Beyond standing his physical ground when a grown man pounded a drum in his face for five straight minutes, he held his spiritual ground, when his faith was attacked for his “crime” of defending life!!

Defending life is now the front lines of the war against faith…hell, it’s the front lines in the war against reason as well.

On January 22 the State of New York legalized infanticide, by allowing the MURDER of fully formed babies right up the instant of birth. Virginia tried to one up them by legalizing the murder of those babies even AFTER they survive the attempt to kill them in the womb. Although it took him nearly a week to do so, Catholic Cardinal Timothy Dolan finally called the New York law what it is: “ghoulish and barbaric”. Meanwhile, the Governor of New York used the lights of the ‘Freedom Tower’ to CELEBRATE the new infanticide laws.

Sooner or later the Social Justice warriors will get around to you, if they haven’t already. What will you do? Yes, you can lower your eyes and deflect with a few mumbled phrases amounting to: “I don’t want to get involved”, or “I don’t want to discuss it”. But if you do then you will have yielded your spiritual ground to them.

Or you can stand your spiritual ground. Defending your faith doesn’t make you any of the names ending in “ist” or “ic” that they will hurl at you, it only makes them small and petty for hurling those names.

I’ve never gotten a tattoo, but if I was ever going to I would get the old sailor’s tattoo across my knuckles: H-O-L-D F-A-S-T. In a storm sailors needed to hold fast to the rigging, lest they be swept away. The storm we are facing will sweep you away just as surely unless you also hold fast…unless you stand your spiritual ground!

    Yet, Nick Sandmann and his classmates were abandoned and condemned by their bishop and principal. Other bishops and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops piled on. These people have all been pretty silent about religious discrimination, the plight of the Little Sisters of the Poor and the NY abortion law.

    If I was 35 I’d likely be looking into converting to an Orthodox faith.

    JR –

    But, we are facing more urgent issues: like saving caterpillars and rescuing pit bulls so they can attack children.

    It’s like Cardinal Cupich (Chicago) said in a TV interview: we can’t go “down the rabbit hole” of focusing on molestation by bishops and priests because it takes our focus off important things like migration and global warming:

    I don’t know how your priorities got so screwed up.

    Eph, and a HISTORIC tweet ensued:

    “Ralph Northam will now be kept comfortable while a discussion ensues.”

    “They” are doing their best to demonize any positive spirituality, esp Christian.
    Recent article: prog school won’t play sports with Christian private school where VP’s wife Karen Pence volunteers.

    Due to, and the irony is rich here, “intolerance”.

    An excellent article that could have gone even further……

    Bottom line —

    The Emperor wants YOU dead.

    It used to be about what you worshiped, now it is what you believe.

    What is it about the N. VA. & DC area and year books? Remember the yearbook photos from Blasey Ford?

    Comment from the Internet re. (Soon to be EX) Governor Northam:

    “Northam’s favorite movie was Partial Birth of a Nation.”

    Another instance found.

    another racist moment for (the now VA Gov) ignoring and not shaking the hand of the black republican candidate after the 2013 Lt. Gov debate.

    Dems split so far. Some backing him, some insisting he resign.

    Planned “Parenthood” now calling for Northam to resign.

    Hillarious

    I read the Lt Gov is a former Planned Parenthood official and is even more pro-infanticide than Northam.

    PP calls for Northam to resign, “they don’t want anything to go full term”

    CNN labeled Northam a “Republican” in their broadcast. I guess that means he’s done.

    the article asks question that needs to be asked:

    ==> “Cui bono?” “Who benefits?”

    Why release the photo, which apparently lots of people knew about, at THIS juncture? Because Governor Northam (D) Virginia had become a LIABILITY. He had told the [gasp!] TRUTH, unvarnished, on a radio/video interview. The TRUTH that the abortion fans had tried, all too successfully, to conceal from people: the “clump of cells” is an INFANT, and abortion is about KILLING THAT INFANT!!

    Thus Northam needed to be jettisoned, and they used his own yearbook to do it.

    Just to put this in perspective, the left and the media had no problem with Northam supporting the killing of infants, but have a major problem with him dressing in back face 35 years ago.

    Northam will release statement, not resigning.
    Although the photo is on HIS yearbook page he will say neither person is him.

    39 Jim,

    Good news.
    If Trump can’t win VA in 2020 he deserves to lose.
