"The whole point of the liberal revolution that gave rise to the 1960’s was to free us from somebody else’s dogma, but now the same people…are striving to impose on others a secularized religion…disguising it behind innocuous labels like ‘diversity training’ and ‘respect for difference.’"

    Why don't be explicit about how you have felt pressured to yield on open racist beliefs. I would encourage you to stand up and demand to right to hold your beliefs openly and freely. Do not back away and allow social pressure to get in the way of your honest beliefs! Stand your ground and be explicit where stand. Demand freedom and do not just allow elected and un-elected tell you what should think. Speak out now!

    The people of the 60's revolution have created the new 'ism's' - classism and faithism. By their action, these discriminitory practices are not only legal, they SHOULD be practiced. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

    I like the America that we have made during and since the '60's based on the so-called "liberal revolution". It is just Americans responding to their better angels. I would not want to go back to segregation. Minority unemployment 3 or 4 times higher that the rest etcetera, polluted water, and air, and environmental degredation. Diversity training and respect for difference has been with us since 1776 when the founders recognized the need to protect it by enacting the Bill of Rights. The liberals simply reinforced and built upon the founders principals.

    Climate Change is the new secular world religion  it is on the lips of every liberal politician around the world.  It is has everything you'd ever need  impending Armageddon, wailing prophets in sack cloth ... er ... actors on private airplanes, lecturing priests at the pulpit begging for action, black-robed magistrates to hand down rules and regulations on what labors may be practiced, what farms may grow, what may be sold or consumed, what may be SAID and what is prohibited. 

    Why?  Because the world is coming to an end due to our collective 'sins' and we must be saved for our own good  even if it transfers all our power to a ruling elite. And dont't forget the hoards of 'believers' of the IPCC Bible, marching to stop all energy production, no matter the cost. The setup should be clear to even a child: declaring CO2 a pollutant is a scam to tax every breath (and apparently every fart) to pay the salaries of the millions of bureaucrats needed to run the racket.  Note that Al Gore invested heavily in carbon tax credits which become a fiat currency   it's just another money grab for the globalists.  Hey Chicken Little, go screw yourself! ;-)

    The Nadiyb liberal revolution promoting a Qadesh reprobate mindset.
    "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who would labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and cherish them. A volume could not trace all the connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked: Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts off justice? And let us with caution indulge this supposition that morality can be maintained without religion."
