From the time of this nation’s founding on through to the current era, the majority of Americans saw God as the Ultimate Authority, the Bible as their ultimate guidebook, and the Old and New Testament moral law as their highest principles.
In a commentary entitled, “Conservatives Begin to See the Light,” Joseph Farah describes the ultimate principle—the ground of being– on which our nation was founded:
“That we are created in the image of God and are accountable to Him. Without that recognition, we are virtually incapable of self-government, which requires us to be able to distinguish right from wrong, as defined by God.
God has created certain institutions for His purposes and for our benefit. Among these is marriage, the family and government. But any government that exceeds its limited authority or attempts to usurp the authority of God is unworthy of its power. Real conservatives believe in the tenets of the Declaration of Independence which explains that our rights descend from God—and that they come with responsibility as well.” (source: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=263177)
Revival of the Moloch State
“While relatively little is known of Moloch, much more is known of the concept of divine kingship, the king as god, and the god as king, as the divine-human link between heaven and earth. The god-king represented man on a higher (evolved, naturally selected) scale, man ascended, and the worship of such a god, i.e., of such a Baal, was the assertion of the continuity of heaven and earth. It was the belief that all being was one being (materialist-pantheist monism), and the god therefore was an ascended man on that scale of being. The power manifested in the political order was thus a manifestation or apprehension and seizure of divine power (through the conceptual murder of God). It represented the triumph of a man (i.e., Hegel, Marx, Darwin, Freud, Lenin and Hitler) and of his people (i.e., Bolsheviks, Marxists and National Socialists). Moloch worship was thus a political religion (i.e., Marxism, Progressivism, Fascism, occult New Age)….Moloch worship was thus state worship. The state was the true and ultimate order, and religion was a department of the state. The state claimed total jurisdiction over man (necessitating mind-control, re-education, concentration camps, brainwashing); it was therefore entitled to total sacrifice.” (Rousas Rushdoony cited in “The Antichrist,” by Vincent P. Miceli, S.J., pp. 246, 247; emphasis added)
When the true God is banished from man’s society, into the resulting vacuum rush new gods, peculiar ideas, the dehumanization of mankind, strange practices and staggering cruelty.
Having accepted their own godhood, countless numbers of contemporary Americans are now rushing headlong into the occult, that is, Wicca, Satanism, goddess worship, transcendental meditation, channeling, and ghost-hunting for example. These spiritist activities bring about a revival of the politics of ancient paganism. This means the development of a divine totalitarian state based on a Hermetic-theology of “as above, so below,” that is, on the denial of the Creator-creature distinction.
