Happy Hour News Briefs
The founder of American Renewal Project, David Lane, is praying for us again. Let’s find out why!
“Contemporary America lost its bearings in the last 100 years and turned into a secular culture. It all began with advancing the false religion of secularism, followed by the erosion of character of America’s youth through public education and the breakdown of the family. Soon thereafter, the collapse and now absence of character in national leadership took place…”
[He then scorns the Boy Scouts for letting gay and trans kids in, and then blames Paul Ryan for not smiting Lane’s enemies, like Planned Parenthood, when he could.]
“Pew Research reported that evangelical turnout in 2018 was at 2014 and 2010 levels, in other words, anemic and impotent. (Pew Research Center, Nov. 7, 2018; How religious groups voted in the midterm elections.)”
OK, so Lane also is blaming Y’all Qaeda for not voting, and perhaps he does not notice that they are dying off, rapidly, and not replacing their dead butts in the pews with new butts in the pews, so to speak.
“With astonishing speed, Christians seem to have erased from living memory such things as Fast and Furious, deepening deficits, gays praying at the Inauguration, transgender bathrooms, transgender military, voter bullying by ACORN, racism exploited by Black Lives Matter, insurrection fueled by leftist totalitarians in major U.S. cities, violence and IRS investigations of Christian conservative organizations.”
So, if I am understanding Lane’s argument, then, he’s blaming Republicans and Christ-ers for everything he sees as wrong, and I can go along with that.
