Here is Bryan Fischer: It’s time for Christians to armor up.
It’s time for us all to recognize how serious the other side is to silence our message, to confine us, to restrict us, and eventually to exterminate us.
Author and media consultant Peter Leyden and political commentator Ruy Teixeira have declared all-out war against conservatives. These regressives (they think they are “progressives” but they are not — they are dragging us backwards toward the Dark Ages) argue, quite correctly in my view, that America is currently divided into two camps, and one camp or the other must prevail.
In their view, co-existence or bipartisanship is impossible. “At this juncture in our history, there’s no way that a bipartisan path provides the way forward.” In other words, you can forget all that nonsense about crossing the aisle and finding common ground, because there isn’t any common ground.
They write (emphasis mine throughout):
“Two different political cultures already at odds through different political ideologies, philosophies, and worldviews can get trapped in a polarizing process that increasingly undermines compromise. They see the world through different lenses, consume different media, and literally live in different places … At some point, one side or the other must win – and win big. The side resisting change, usually the one most rooted in the past systems and incumbent interests, must be thoroughly defeated.”
Although I am in the camp that Leyden and Teixeira thinks needs to be squashed like a little tiny bug, I believe his cultural analysis is spot on. We are in fact locked in cultural civil war between two worldviews that have nothing in common, and one of those worldviews must prevail in the end while the other is thoroughly defeated and relegated to insignificance.
This is the challenge to conservatives, especially Christian conservatives: the other side, our cultural adversaries, know that we are in a death struggle between two competing views of the world. It is a war — fought not with bullets but ideas — in which total conquest is the only objective. So, here is the question: They know we are in a civil war — do we?
