Statists must wipe out religion and instill blind faith in government
Rush Limbaugh – 3/14/2013
CALLER: But I understand what religion is. Faith is about adjusting your life. See, here's where people miss the point. You have to have politics and religions together, and when you understand what they are, they're both useful. But people have them mixed up exactly reversed these days. They're expecting politics from religion and religion from politics. Politics should be... Here's a saying I came up with for politics:
"IT'S NOT FOR THE PEN OF LAW TO RULE THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF MAN. IT'S FOR THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF MAN TO RULE THE PEN OF LAW."
If you understand that that's what politics should be, and you understand what religion is, and you don't confuse the two, they will both serve you well.
RUSH: Now, as to our last caller, what was the man's name, Mr. Snerdley? Doug from
. This guy,
I'll tell, he was on to something. He said that people are reversing politics
and religion. I'm going to paraphrase him. He doesn't exactly say it this way,
but what his point was that people -- and this is really on point, and it's
very curious. People have blind faith in their politics and doubt their
religion. He thinks it should be the other way around. You ought to have total
blind faith in your religion because that's what religion is about, is faith.
You invest in your religious beliefs. You invest in your church. You invest the
trust in that faith. You don't doubt that. It's politics that you're supposed
to be a little curious about, uncertain of, question those people. But, no.
People have blind faith in their politics and doubt their church. Louisville
Look, folks, it's this simple. For leftists -- and leftists today are Democrats. I mean, the Democrat Party is the repository for liberals and leftists today, and their church is the state. There is a reason why Karl Marx and every communist, socialist philosopher has wanted to do away with religion. They want there to be only one faith: the state. Blind, unalterable faith in the state. And the church, any church, is a competitor and therefore a threat. People who exhibit blind faith in their religion must be found and turned. I don't care where you go, I don't care what communist philosopher you read, they have to wipe out religion. And they go to great lengths to convince their people that there is no god.
The old Soviets used to do it
The state is not the repository of all the answers. The state is not where you ought to have your blind faith. The state will never care as much about you as you care about yourself. The state will never care for you as much as you care for yourself. The state will never be as concerned about you as you will be for yourself. But it's hideous. And so that's why all these leftists in the media and elsewhere constantly attack the Catholic Church and the pope. Competitors. They are competitors. That's why they must be discredited or manipulated, intimidated into reforming. It won't happen, but that's what the effort is and why it will never go away.
