Thought of the Day and Unrelated articles

Thought-

The only thing that Social Justice Warriors (SJW) and those on the active far left loathe more than an ignorant conservative is a well articulated and informed conservative.  A well articulated and informed conservative baffles the left because the left is taught to believe that there are none in existence.  When confronted with a conservative of this ilk the typical recourse of the left is to name-call and denigrate, which is not a change in strategy from when they interact with ignorant conservatives.

I would not consider most people part of the SJW or far left activist group. But I will say that most people in the western world are under the influence of this group and are unconsciously falling in line.

This is a very interesting article that speaks to the traditional Christian understanding of a “just war”. One thing I found interesting was that a Quaker, John Dickinson, was the primary author of “The Declaration on the Causes and Necessities of Taking Up Arms”. Quakers were known to be pacifist in their orientation to war. And if you have ever seen the HBO miniseries “John Adams” you will understand how surprising it is that he authored it as in the show (and in history) he gives the most resistance to accepting a Declaration of Independence and open war with Britain.

Washington, Franklin, and Deism
