What Solzhenitsyn faulted America (and the West more generally) for was its abandonment of its own moral and, especially, spiritual ideals and identity.
As a survivor of the Communist Holocaust I am horrified to witness how my beloved America, my adopted country, is gradually being transformed into a secularist and atheistic utopia, where communist ideals are glorified and promoted, while Judeo-Christian values and morality are ridiculed and increasingly eradicated from the public and social consciousness of our nation. Under the decades-long assault and militant radicalism of many so-called “liberal” and “progressive” elites, God has been progressively erased from our public and educational institutions, to be replaced with all manner of delusion, perversion, corruption, violence, decadence, and insanity
— Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, 1983

‘Parallel societies, political Islam and radicalisation have no place in our country,’ Kurz told a news conference outlining the government’s decisions, which were based on that law.
‘This is just the beginning,’ far-right Vice Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache added.
Kudos to Austria. They haven’t forgotten the lessons of Vienna in 1683.
This needs to be done in the US also. Islam is not a religion. It is a totalitarian ideology as bad as Communism, Nazism, and Socialism.

This week it was a CrossFit executive who was fired. Next week it could be you.
Make no mistake: this is about power. There are powerful lawmakers and cultural influencers who want to shut Christians up—to make it illegal for us to speak openly about the biblical view of marriage and sexuality. They truly believe that Christianity is not only hateful, but harmful. Something that should be classified as hate speech so that the full force of the American legal system can be used to snuff out public Christianity.

American Progressives are the purest form of true believers, because they have disconnected their beliefs from practical considerations. Therefore, they are immune to facts and reason. When you examine the language they use to describe politics and the culture, you see the extreme mysticism. Obama does not even really know what “left behind” means, but he is sure it is a bad thing. For him, it is a purely a spiritual issue to be thought of in those terms. Practical considerations simply have no salience for him.
Progressivism, Liberalism, Socialism, whatever you want to call it, is a false religion.
There are African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Asian-Americans, Arab-Americans, Native-Americans, etc. And then there are just – Americans.
You have the United Negro College Fund, Hispanic History Month, Martin Luther King Day, Asian History Month, Black Entertainment Television, Black History Month, Cesar Chavez Day, Kwanzaa and the NAACP.
If we had WET (White Entertainment Television), we’d be called racists.
If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists.
If we had a White History Month, we’d be called racist for that.
The only racists I’ve ever met were liberal, hyphenated-Americans.

These are not churches so much as leftist political agitators.
3. “Tax and budget policies that reduce disparities between rich and poor, strengthen democracy, and provide greater opportunity for everyone within the common good.” Is this what Jesus taught? Did He complain that the people under Roman rule needed a fairer tax code?
Any church that is a member of the NCC is a fake church. Ditto for the World Council of Churches.
