Justice Sunday II: The Mantra Decoded

Number one, it's a new day.
Number two, liberalism is dead.
Number three, the majority of Americans are conservative.
Number four, you can count on us showing up and speaking out.
And number five, let the church rise.
~Jerry Sutton, Two Rivers Baptist Church, site of Justice Sunday II

Mantra with my commentary
Number one, it's a new day.
this is true. amazingly, it is a new day every 24 hours.
Number two, liberalism is dead.
liberalism : a movement in modern Protestantism emphasizing intellectual liberty and the spiritual and ethical content of Christianity b : a theory in economics emphasizing individual freedom from restraint and usually based on free competition, the self-regulating market, and the gold standard c : a political philosophy based on belief in progress, the essential goodness of the human race, and the autonomy of the individual and standing for the protection of political and civil liberties
i had no idea that the free market was dead, that individualial liberty was dead, that the goodness of the human race was dead, and that protection of political liberties was dead. where the hell have i been living? all this time I thought it was the United States.
Number three, the majority of Americans are conservative.
and the majority of Germans supported Hitler. as my mom says, "just because everyone else does it, that doesn't make it right!"
Number four, you can count on us showing up and speaking out.
you can show up and speak out only if your political and civil liberties are protected. two words: slippery slope
And number five, let the church rise.
is this like "let the south rise?"

this is bollocks. that is all i have to say.
