The Cult of Victimization and its sense of self-pity sunk its roots deeply in the post-war of northern aggression period. The origin of this cult is the satanic insistence on the preeminence of the will of the creature over the will of God. The slogan of this cult is “the free will of man.” This is where the fall of man and his misery began. This cult has wrapped itself in the government of democracy. The exercise of this cult is bearing fruit in the ethnic cleansing that continues as the Confederate monuments are being defaced, destroyed and denigrated. New Orleans has her democratic sights set on eradicating the identity of a people who once lived there, endured great hardships to build a civilization that founded, and defended the Southern part of the United States for generations. Yes, we who are loyal to our God, our ancestors, and our heritage must stand against this onslaught which shall continue as long as the Cult of Victimization and democracy exists. Why has this downgrade come? This is the way democracies work. When the wicked are in rule, they rule wickedly! “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn” (Prov. 29:2). This shall continue as long as politicians can make secret deals with the ungodly and perverts in the nation to insure their reelections and enrich themselves. You may question this response. I have a question for you! Have the abortions been stopped and the perverts lost their place at the public trough since the last election? Democracies like the depravity of man are always in a spiral downward. They ultimately are controlled by and ruled by the wicked.
Patrick Henry warned when debating the preamble to the Constitution, which began with “we the people” instead of “we the states,” “If your American chief, be a man of ambition, and abilities, how easy it is for him to render himself absolute! The army is in his hand.… I cannot with patience think of this idea. If ever he violates the laws, one of two things will happen: he will come at the head of his army to carry everything before him; or, he will give bail, or do what Mr. Chief Justice will order him…. But, sir, where is the existing force to punish him?” The legacy of Lincoln was foreseen by Henryet. al. and the nation has been robbed of its republic. Lincoln substituted a rule of men (democracy) for the rule of law (Constitutional Republic) and suspended the writ of habeas corpus.
Mr. Henry and others greatly feared a consolidated or centralized government which could change the confederation of existing sovereign states into a great national supreme government. This has been the sad end for America since 1861. The Confederate leaders sided with Henry and greatly appreciated his wisdom. In his first speech Henry said, “That this is a consolidated government is demonstrably clear; and the danger of such a government is, to my mind, very striking…. Who authorized them [the framers] to speak the language of, we the people, instead of, we the States?” He then noted, “If the States be not the agents of this compact, it must be one great … national government of the people of all the States” (Patrick Henry: Life, correspondence & Speeches, Vol. III, 433). Later he warned in his second speech, “Here is a resolution as radical as that which separated us from Great Britain. It is radical in this transition; our rights and privileges are endangered, and the sovereignty of the States will be relinquished; and cannot we plainly see that this is actually the case” (435). How perceptive this great man was in knowing the end results of the proposed democracy.
What will preserve our liberty? “Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it, but downright force: Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.” Henry saw the prospective government as a danger to freedom and his desire was to prevent its loss. He said the new government “does not leave us means of defending our rights; or, of waging war against tyranny” (439). The power of the States will be reduced to nothing, he explained (449). The impending crisis was evident to him. Thomas Jefferson even said that every generation needed a revolution. Now the rights of minorities trump the rights of the majority.
Sadly the fallen nature of man was not taken into adequate account according to Patrick Henry. He warned that the new document gave a safe haven to evil men who would ultimately work their way into government. He feared that the rights of freemen were in danger of being taken from them, “but we are told that the we need not fear, because those in power being our representatives, will not abuse the powers we put in their hands: … I will submit to your recollection, whether liberty has been destroyed most often by the licentiousness of the people, or by the tyranny of rulers?” He went on to speak of the perils of such a government and the dangers of bribery. He also saw under this system the power of the minorities. The Cult of Victimization was in view. The question Henry was dealing with seemed to be, “When oppression by government comes will the oppressor let go?” “Was there ever an instance?” he asked, and then added, “Sometimes the oppressed have got loose by one of those bloody struggles that desolate a country [but we did not get free from it during the conflict of the 1860s, H.R.R.].” Yes, Henry saw such a proposed government as “… incompatible with the genius of republicanism.” He saw the specter of the Lincoln administration arising even before the tyrant’s birth.
What’s happening regarding our flags and monuments is the result of the rule of men and the absence of the rule of law. Even laws on the books are violated to satisfy the supposed victims, many of whom have been living on free handouts for generations. There is a pacification of supposed wrongs as men seek to provide sacrifices for the new religion of the Cult of Victimization. Look at countries ruled by those without Biblical morality and what do you see? What did ancient Egypt do? Her pharaohs effaced the history of their predecessors in order to stand over them and they sought the extermination of the people of God. What do these Islamic groups do? They seek to destroy Christians, churches and any symbols of any other culture not reflecting their own. What are they doing in New Orleans? They are doing the same thing! The Cult of Victimization must have its atonement. One priestess of the Cult of Victimization has been exalted for her sacrifices from governor of South Carolina to be a United Nations representative.
The Cult of Victimization is multi-national wherein people wallow in self-pity and a belief that they are victims. This cult is filled with priests and priestesses, making it perhaps the most popular religion of our day. Many who go under the guise of being Christian leaders teach that victimization is proof of holiness. Even many evangelical religious groups are now serving at the altar of the Cult of Victimization and are sacrificing their father’s and mother’s histories and symbols to atone for some supposed sins that they committed; all the while they violate one of God’s greatest commandments of mans relation to man—“Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee” (Ex. 20:12). How much longer will we be allowed upon the land that Jehovah has provided?
