Letters: Democrats’ words, actions to blame; Too many have double standards, follow heretics | READER COMMENTARY

Democrats’ words, actions to blame

This is in response to Frank Batavick’s Jan. 8 column, “How a hubris-filled hero led directly to attempted overthrow of democracy.” Democrats salivated over starting the Russia Collusion hoax, to overthrow the 2016 election, with no signed affidavits. Now they refuse to investigate hundreds of affidavits, signed under penalty of perjury, that attest to fraud. Regardless Batavick spews the left’s narrative that Trump “never presented evidence of voter fraud” and is responsible for the Capital riot.

You reap what you sow. The Capital riot is the direct result of months of unchecked riots, violence, death and destruction “normalized” by the Democrats and their servile media. Since May, BLM/Antifa have rioted in Seattle, Portland, New York, St. Louis, Chicago, Minneapolis, Kenosha, Rochester, etc. The rioters destroyed monuments, looted, burned down businesses and a police precinct, tried to burn down a Federal courthouse, killed several and caused billions in damage. When Trump called them domestic terrorists, Democrats called him a racist. When Trump sent federal troops to protect the court house, Democrats called them storm troopers.

If these riots were stopped and rioters arrested at the start we wouldn’t be here today. But because these weren’t Trump supporters, the Democrats encouraged the riots, classifying them as mostly peaceful protest and morally acceptable, because the country is systemically racist.

The hypocrisy and selective outage of the self-righteous Democrats is on full display. When asked about these riots before the election Nancy Pelosi said “people do what they do.” Joe Biden and all the Democrats refused to condemn them at their convention. The mayor of Portland encouraged rioters. The mayor of D.C. didn’t want the National Guard intervening during the summer riots when BLM/Antifa tried to burn down St John’s Episcopal Church and defaced monuments across the city. Pelosi was more concerned about the use of tear gas in Lafayette Square.

I don’t think Trump’s speech incited violence. Regardless Pelosi continues her four-year obsession to destroy him. States are struggling with vaccine distribution and more people are dying, but Pelosi focused on Impeachment. Big Tech, Democratic, monopolies (Twitter, Google, Facebook, Amazon) are helping her by censoring the president (not BLM, China, Iran) and shutting down Parler, just like they helped Biden before the election.

Too many have double standards, follow heretics

Satan said to Eve, “Did God actually say, ‘you shall not eat of any tree in the garden?’” Gen. 3:1. The story ends with the fall of humanity. Christian leaders are falling for the same trick and preaching that God’s word doesn’t “actually” mean what is says. Even churches that believe scripture is infallible are becoming victims of the trickery and teaching heresy, or soon will be. Read your leadership councils’ statements if you doubt me.

The distinct Biblical roles for each gender within a church are all but gone. The sanctity of life may not be assailed but it has not been safeguarded suitably from the pulpits. Homosexuality was taught to be sinful, but this is changing due to fear. While the church has a corrupted history going back to the fall, the standards I’m conferring have been accepted as truth almost universally throughout time and nature.

If it weren’t for double standards the left wouldn’t have standards. This appears true but what are your standards? I like my invention called the “Stanley standard.” Using the Stanley standard, I can tell you the correct answer to any question in science, ethics or most fields of study. Western civilization is based on Biblical morals such as the Ten Commandments. This helped produce the most free, fair and flourishing civilization ever known. The wisdom, truth and power of the Bible in examining the human heart is unmatched because it’s written by our Creator who loves us and has given us His word as an instruction manual for life and eternity. However, a lie close to the truth is more dangerous than an outright lie and that’s what’s happening in most churches.

Truth has been twisted, instead of “God is love” we have people with signs that say, “love is love” and “I believe science.” God or anything supernatural must be eliminated for the Party to have ultimate authority in determining right from wrong. The ever-changing science is used to control and kill innocent and vulnerable populations.

History is correctly recorded by a standard of time based on Jesus’ birth, but since the fall people have sought loopholes and ways to warp His standards. Jesus spoke harshest to the religious leaders for good reason. The Bible records repeatedly that societies experience horrible times when the religious leaders are crooked and pious. It appears many are following false teachers and heretics, are you?
