Libertarian college professor, David Brat, has defeated Eric Cantor, Republican House Majority Leader, in the GOP Primary.
While not a huge fan of Eric Cantor, I am deeply concerned about the direction of our nation, with Libertarians now seizing more political power.
Libertarians, by the majority, embrace a false utopia, when it comes to what they call “social issues’.
It is not likely that they will fight as fiercely for traditional marriage and pro life causes, as most believe these are “states rights” issues and that “the federal government ought to stay out of it”.
Per the “Libertarian Platform” of 2012:
“Recognizing that abortion is a sensitive issue and that people can hold good-faith views on all sides, we believe that government should be kept out of the matter, leaving the question to each person for their conscientious consideration.”
Concerning Traditional Marriage and the LGBT Agenda:
“Sexual orientation, preference, gender, or gender identity should have no impact on the government’s treatment of individuals, such as in current marriage, child custody, adoption, immigration or military service laws. Government does not have the authority to define, license or restrict personal relationships. Consenting adults should be free to choose their own sexual practices and personal relationships.”
Translation: Libertarians do not believe in marriage protection and have no problem with the notion of “marriage equality” and marriage redefinition.
I am convinced that Libertarian ideology is as dangerous to the future of our beloved Republic as socialism, Islam and the homosexual agenda, for its concepts of social passivity are indeed a threat to religious liberty.
Brat has written numerous commentaries which provide an intimate look at what shapes his concepts for values. While speaking with a slight religious tone in interviews, his writings demonstrate that he is more endeared towards the views of an atheist, Ayd Rand, than he is Biblical principles.
Rand advocated “reason as the only means of acquiring knowledge” However, the Bible says “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge:”- Proverbs 1:7
Ayd Rand never believed God. No committed Christian would allow himself or herself to be influenced by the views of an atheist.
The truth is that I am saddened by the irrational reactionary politics of so many, who would not take more time to raise up candidates who understand our Judeo-Christian values and, most of all, that our nation’s economic woes are moral/spiritual and social/cultural in nature.
These problems cannot be solved through economic philosophies. Economic problems are created by the moral and social issues.
Libertarian ideology, furthermore, cannot thrive alongside of the Christian faith, for it soundly rejects the Christian faith with its notion of “leaving man to himself”.
Man is sinful by nature. Left to himself, he will always do what is sinful. That is why God instituted government. Sinful, corrupt men have corrupted government.
We cannot fix that by eliminating government, as Libertarian want to do. We have to raise up righteous men and women to sit in authority within government.
Tonight, while posting on the Page of a friend, a Libertarian said to me- about the National Right to Life- “They are an unprincipled incumbent protection program”
This vicious attack on an organization that has contributed greatly to the cause of saving unborn life speaks volumes. Yes, they are protection oriented. Protecting unborn life.
Something Libertarians are not known to fight for.
Now, I do think many Right to Life organizations have become too political and have forgotten the true fight for Personhood, but I don’t see any Libertarians or Libertarian organizations out here on the front life fighting for unborn life.
Talk is cheap.
At the end of the day, I am in agreement with those who see Eric Cantor as unprincipled.
I also agree that Cantor needed to be replaced, but I had hoped he would be replaced with a Constitutional Representative who understand that this nation is a Judeo-Christian society where strong national defense and traditional family still mean something to most of us.
Libertarians simply don’t get it.
God help us.
