How Saint Paul Predicted John Kerry's Treason Nearly 2000 Years Ago
Jack Kinsella, Hal Lindsey's lovable sidekick, has a new column out and it's a good one. Yes, today our Oracle in Training (OiT) is breaking theological ground with a new column about how the Bible predicted John Kerry's Treason.
The first part of the piece is all about how Michael Moore's movie, Fahrenheit 9/11, is being shown to soldiers in Kuwait. This makes Jack really mad because it's causing soldiers to question the reasons why they're fighting in the first place.
Just look at our actions during the Second World War, he says, when anything critical of the war effort was censored.
During the Second World War, troop morale overseas was deemed to be a matter of national security. Defeatism was not only discouraged, it was censored. The 1st Amendment survived. So did the United States of America.
That's good enough for me. Shut down the first amendment, please.
Jack goes on to describe Lord Haw-Haw and Tokyo Rose, two people tried for treason after the war. According to Jack, their main crime was that they tried to break US morale. Since this is the same thing John Kerry and Michael Moore do, they should probably be killed too. Of course he doesn't say that last bit but, well, follow the logic.
Sorry. That "logic" should have been in quotation marks.
With the Vietnam War, treason became fashionable. What led Lord Haw-Haw to the gallows and put Tokyo Rose in prison put John Kerry in the Senate, for example.
I wonder if Jack's ever actually read what John Kerry said to the Senate Committee. I think it's far more likely that he's simply regurgitating what he hears from Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.
‘Treason’ as an indictable crime, has a specific legal definition. But Webster’s defines the meaning of ‘treason’ as follows:
Old Jack's a sly one. Since John Kerry and Michael Moore have done nothing approaching the legal definition of treason, Jack's going to prove, using only his dictionary, that they should be judged as if they had.
Did I mention that Jack's column is part of his ministry that operates based on gifts and donations? Thank God the little old ladies sent him enough money to spring for a dictionary!
Anyway, here's Jack's quote from "Webster's:"
“The offense of attempting to overthrow the government of the state to which the offender owes allegiance, or of betraying the state into the hands of a foreign power; disloyalty; treachery.”
Well, while we've got "Webster's" open, let me try one.
Moron: 1 A retarded person mentally equal to a child between eight and twelve years old. 2 A very foolish or stupid person.
I didn't even require a donation to do that!
John Kerry’s antiwar activities are a textbook example of a person betraying the state into the hands of a foreign power. Screaming, “1st Amendment privilege,” Kerry handed the North Vietnamese all the propaganda they needed to break US morale and ultimately hand Hanoi victory. That is a matter of historical record.
Jack's column is definitely a textbook example of something too.
Michael Moore’s antiwar ‘documentaries’ like Fahrenheit 9/11 are further examples of leftist treason, according to Webster’s definition. Both Kerry and Moore are guilty of betraying the state into the hands of a foreign power by their conduct. In Kerry’s case, the betrayal was complete and the victory went to Hanoi.
Jack's ability to use the dictionary seems only to be surpassed by his incredibly strong grasp of history. But seriously, how could we possibly vote for the guy who single-handedly caused America to lose the Vietnam war?
In Moore’s case, the betrayal is ongoing. Screaming, “1st Amendment privilege,” Moore’s wild, unproven allegations about the war in Iraq and why we are there is sapping the will of America to stay the course, and, heartbreakingly, the will of the men in harm’s way.
Because if you question a conservative leader, you're guilty of treason. Simple as that, really.
Jack goes on to give some reasons why we invaded Iraq in the first place (even though none of them seems to have anything to do with the reasons given at the time). You know, things like the fact that Saddam Hussein was a puppet of the French, Germans, and Russians and how thousands of Iraqis were dying each day. Oh, and just what was Saddam planning to do with that yellow cake uranium from Niger anyway?
Those were the reasons our troops went to Iraq, and they were proud to do it. Those I've met who returned from Iraq were filled with a sense of accomplishment and the rightness of their mission.
Michael Moore betrayed them, stole their pride, and instilled in them a sense of futility that may well get some of those who are still in combat killed. Moore knows that -- he's been told by experts.
Yes, not only is Michael Moore betraying our country, he's actually killing our soldiers. It's amazing he hasn't been executed yet.
Treason is evidently no barrier to high office, as John Kerry’s candidacy makes clear. And treason is no barrier to wealth, fame and high honors, as Michael Moore’s wildly successful enemy propaganda films testify to so eloquently.
Just as a complete lack of rational thought is evidently no barrier to having your own ministry.
To them, America is the enemy, but to their twisted way of thinking, that makes them ‘patriots’ – so say the likes of Michael Moore, John Kerry, Alec Baldwin, Teddy Kennedy, etc., etc.
Great logic, that is. Anybody who questions a foreign policy that alienates our traditional allies and invades a sovereign country under false pretenses can only be described as one who views America as the enemy.
But Jack's just getting warmed up, ladies and gentlemen. Because it's not just "Webster's" that thinks John Kerry and Michael Moore are evil. You see, God thinks they're evil, too. Not only that, but John Kerry's also a sign of the apocalypse!
At the risk of repeating myself, Paul’s description of society in the last days bears more than a passing resemblance to our own crumbling social edifice. Consider, for a moment, the platform, tone and spirit of those who represent the American Left.
Picture such faces in your minds eye as John Kerry’s, or Michael Moore, or Alec Baldwin, Nancy Pelosi, Ted Kennedy, Tom Daschle. . . ok, got it?
You think you know where Jack's going with this, don't you? Well, you're wrong. Because he's about to take this to an entirely new Wing Nut plane of existence.
Now look at what they stand for. Abortion rights. Gay rights. Secular humanism. The suppression of Christianity. Same sex marriages. Children’s rights (and the corollary erosion of parental rights) Even UN rights over US sovereign matters like national defense.
Good God, no! Not children's rights! What a bunch of Satan-worshippers!
Now, look at how they advance their causes. By creating division – the ‘two Americas’ the ‘rich against the poor’ (class warfare is a technique perfected by the Bolsheviks to overthrow the Czar. It is classical Marxism).
By fomenting civil unrest. By advocating civil disobedience. Recall all the illegal gay ‘marriages’ performed by elected officials in defiance of the law, for example. (Also classical Marxism)
You gay? You wanna get married? Then you're a commie. Simple as that.
Still within the realm of ordinary Wing Nuttism, you say? Just keep reading.
Let’s return to Paul’s comments, one more time. Bear with me.
First, the historical context of which Paul is framing his description:
"This know also, that in THE LAST DAYS, perilous times shall come." Having established the historical context as being in the 'last days' Paul describes the social conditions that constitute 'perilous times' for the Church in those last days.
"For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy." (2nd Timothy 3:2)
Well, that was nice and all but God didn't really do a great job of making his Word clear so Jack's going to help Him out. Hooray for Jack!
Allow me to paraphrase Paul to illustrate my point (with apologies to the Author). "For men shall supporters of secular humanism, wanting power at all costs, boasters (Was Kerry in Cambodia in 1968?) supporters of the ACLU, supporters of restricting parental rights, unthankful and unholy."
“Without natural affection (gay marriage) trucebreakers (Kerry’s promise to bug out of Iraq) false accusers (Bush lied, Bush was AWOL, SWIFT Boat veterans are all partisan liars, etc) incontinent (Teddy Kennedy) fierce (Terry McAullife: Bush was AWOL) despisers of those that are good (GOP taken over by the “religious right”)”
“Traitors (see assessment) heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, having a form of godliness (Kerry the Catholic believes life begins at conception but supports abortion ‘rights’), but denying the power thereof :(One nation, under God?) . . . to which, Paul warns the Church, “from such turn away.”
This is perhaps the lowest I've ever seen a Wing Nut go. And if you've read the Dark Window for any length of time, you know that's saying something.
This is not intended as an exhortation for one political party or a condemnation of the other. They stand either condemned or justified on the weight of their own positions.
The point of this column is actually made by 1 Timothy 1:1.
Before presenting a literal description of the worldview of the America liberal left, Paul opens by saying;
“This know also, that IN THE LAST DAYS, perilous times shall come.”
How on earth could I question anybody with enough authority to put words into God's mouth?
Jack Kinsella, The New Voice Of God
Ed. Note: It occurs to me that many of you may be wondering why I would choose to devote such a lengthy entry to somebody as apparently obscure as Jack Kinsella. Especially since even by Seb's standards this wasn't a particularly funny piece. Well, the sad fact is that Jack's not nearly as obscure as he probably should be. People like him (and Hal Lindsey) have an enormous audience and a great deal of influence, whether through Christian television (TBN), print media, or the internet. We ignore these people at our own peril.
