Why can’t reason sway a Leftist? Why is it that using reasonable speech to counter a Leftist talking-point is met with verbal, and sometimes beyond verbal, attempts to silence you? After much consideration and observation of Leftist behavior, I think I have at least a partial answer.
A very revealing transcript from an internal “town hall” meeting at the New York Times was reported on in the Friday, August 16th, 2019 issue of Newsbusters online. The transcript reveals two Leftist principles combining to become a new and alarming era in the history of the Times and perhaps in mainstream journalism as well.
The recent mass shootings in El Paso, TX, and Dayton, Ohio this past weekend have once again turned the political spotlight on the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The Left always has its attacks primed for these eventualities, and as usual, their arguments are forceful demonstrations of folly.
The Left has always been a movement which sought power to obtain their warped view of the ‘greater good.’ Moreover, that view has always trended toward Socialism in one variety or another.

July 20, 2019, is the 50th anniversary of first time any human being set foot on the moon. Neil Armstrong was the first to tread on the moon’s surface and he and co-pilot ‘Buzz’ Aldrin’s initial act was to plant the American flag into the moon’s soil, stand at attention and salute it.

Such knowledge stirs emotions ranging from disgust to anger, especially when it concerns those who are helpless among us. We learned this anew when the newest charges against wealthy Leftist Jeffery Epstein were revealed recently. This convicted pedophile is now facing further charges and perhaps some real hard time, not the 13 months of light-duty he received before. In fact, most commentators expect that Epstein could take several high-profile Democratic stars down with him, most of all former President Bill Clinton.
Parts 1 and 2 of this series covered the determined siege against Christianity by forces outside of the Christian fellowship. This final piece will examine the greatest peril to Christianity if all, the threat from within. For the purposes of this article, a threat from within is something or someone whose presence and/or purposes are detrimental to the existence and mission of Christianity. The biblical witness is the measuring standard to find and guard against these kinds of dangers.
