Twilight Zone Obsolete with words

In case there is any doubt being “tolerant” can actually mean being highly in – tolerant, take a look at someone getting berned by Mr. Sanders merely for espousing the exact same beliefs Christianity has held since its inception.  Be reminded, also, the accused was merely defending the statement of beliefs of his Alma Mater – Wheaton College – which is similar to most orthodox, evangelical Christian churches worldwide. The article he wrote defending Wheaton may be found at this link. You can watch the video of B. Sanders’ interrogation on Youtube right here. If there is any doubt about the historic, exclusivity of Christianity, read Jesus’ own words in John 3:16-18 and 14:6, which include a reference readily made known via the end zones of American football games. Besides being Biblically illiterate, I suppose Sanders isn’t much of a sports fan either.

I guess in Bernie’s world, people who hold to basic Christian beliefs are unqualified to hold public office in this country. This scenario is eerily reminiscent of the dystopian Twilight Zone episode where a man is declared “obsolete” by the totalitarian state – partly for still owning and reading a Bible.

It’s a bummer someone like John Hancock (1737 – 1793), president of congress and one of the most famous signers of the Declaration of Independence – would likely not get a passing grade in Bernie’s inquisition (see below excerpt from Wallbuilders.com).  By the way, if you’d like for the Bern to apologize, you can put your own John Hancock right here. -E

John Hancock

SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE; PRESIDENT OF CONGRESS;
REVOLUTIONARY GENERAL; GOVERNOR OF MASSACHUSETTSSensible of the importance of Christian piety and virtue to the order and happiness of a state, I cannot but earnestly commend to you every measure for their support and encouragement.37

He called on the entire state to pray “that universal happiness may be established in the world [and] that all may bow to the scepter of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the whole earth be filled with His glory.”38

He also called on the State of Massachusetts to pray . . .

  • that all nations may bow to the scepter of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and that the whole earth may be filled with his glory.39
  • that the spiritual kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ may be continually increasing until the whole earth shall be filled with His glory.40
  • to confess their sins and to implore forgiveness of God through the merits of the Savior of the World.41
  • to cause the benign religion of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to be known, understood, and practiced among all the inhabitants of the earth.42
  • to confess their sins before God and implore His forgiveness through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.43
  • that He would finally overrule all events to the advancement of the Redeemer’s kingdom and the establishment of universal peace and good will among men.44
  • that the kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ may be established in peace and righteousness among all the nations of the earth.45
  • that with true contrition of heart we may confess our sins, resolve to forsake them, and implore the Divine forgiveness, through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, our Savior. . . . And finally to overrule all the commotions in the world to the spreading the true religion of our Lord Jesus Christ in its purity and power among all the people of the earth.4637.
