With all the nutty tolerance liberals impose these days creating make-believe fairness, actual history now sounds more like a fairytale rather than reality. In fact, a bonafide intolerance for injustice and immorality once actually existed at the heart of America’s freedom.
It was the intolerance of being forced to pay taxes without representation and the intolerance of being forced to worship a mortal king that formed the foundation of the nation and set America on a path to unparalleled greatness.
Obviously, that is not the same as saying America is perfect or without deeply unjust and immoral blemishes.
Now, however, common-sense intolerance of primitive behavior and practices is just hard to imagine, but then again so are dinosaurs -- and yet they, too, once existed.
Ironically, secularists have labored with a Puritan-like work ethic to invent clever ways of tolerating the injustice and immorality they champion today -- you know, on issues such as abortion and same-sex marriage. Liberating likeminded individuals from the shame of various human behavior and practices is necessary in order to imagine attaining a hedonistic vision of an earthly nirvana.
To pervert justice and moral behavior, secularists conclude that human beings and our intricately organized universe began as some cosmic accident with no divine purpose. As a result, some precocious intellectuals smugly assert that humans are nothing more than highly intelligent (but totally unplanned) animals.
Conveniently unencumbered by an accountability to God, such impressive faith eases the escape from the shame of self-indulgence and narcissism -- which, of course, are akin to greed, but why digress?
Furthermore, pontificating that human behavior and practices are simply natural has allowed humans to tolerate despicable injustice and immorality all the way back to Adam and Eve (or as secularists imagine, whenever monkeys randomly became humans).
Regardless, tolerance for what is natural has always provided an expedient explanation for human beings wishing to escape the discomfort associated with their unjust or immoral actions.
For example, if it were not for America’s public education camps indoctrinating captive children with secular and anti-American propaganda, high school graduates might understand what any informed person recognizes as common knowledge: The entire world -- not America alone -- tolerated slavery on a massive scale. In fact, once upon a time, most people (including Aristotle) simply believed that the enslavement of certain people was merely natural.
