Shhhh: Judeo-Christian Culture Is Actually...Superior

One of the objectives of the progressive movement is to marginalize religion here in the US. They see it as the one major impediment to their goal of winning the hearts and minds of the electorate. This has never been as obvious as it is with Obama in the White House. He has snubbed all traditional National religious celebrations and trumpeted false accomplishments of the Muslim faith, all the while ignoring the terror spreading throughout the Muslim world.

We here in the USA, our heritage predominantly Judeo-Christian, have reason to be proud. This article tells you why.

Shhh. I am about to say is something so radical that it will jangle every politically correct nerve in your body. And is true. The founding and traditional culture of the United States, its Judeo-Christian heritage and boots-on-the-ground decency is superior to all other cultures this world has produced. And it certainly beats the radical worldview (part Marxist, part Islamic, and all thug) that our political and media elites -- led by the president of the United States -- are imposing upon us.

Scream if you must -- but then think. Think about what former Godfathers Pizza CEO Herman Cain -- Christian and African-American -- and so many others recognize as "the greatest country in the world." Outside of the cocoons of condescension wrapping the university and urban strongholds of our trendy elites, this is recognized not as jingoism but truth. Cain insists that our "unparalleled freedom" and "innovative and industrious people" have combined with "exceptional" American traditions to produce the single country to which most people want to come. Columnist/talk show host Dennis Prager notes that American success, as defined by freedom and economic opportunity, "refutes" all that our leftist elites hold dear.

American culture is superior. Period. This does not mean that every thought, every person in America is superior. Rather, it means that, all things considered, the world would be a better place if Judeo-Christian traditions were dominant. Gone would be the institutionalized hate endemic to tyrannical Islamic cultures where, by law and religious dictate, unbelievers and women are second class citizens who rely on the forbearance of a ruling class for existence. In America the exceptional, teachers are not slashed in the face and beaten senseless because they dare to educate girls. In America the exceptional, Judeo-Christian sensibilities do not celebrate savages who slit the throat of a sleeping three-month-old whose crime was "born Jewish." And in America the exceptional, our prison guards do not "rape female dissidents before executing them, lest their victims go to heaven as virgins." Nor does America the exceptional allow "the institutionalized slavery and rape of prepubescent girls."

Perhaps it is time to insist that our media and universities tell the truth: America is a great and fundamentally humane nation because of its Judeo-Christian traditions and emphasis on individual responsibility. It does not need President Obama to "rewrite history" and credit us with "inventions that never were," as he did in touting Islamic cultures. You won't see Christian seminary professors leading enraged students into Cracker Barrel to behead waitresses who wear crosses for decorative, rather than religious purposes. Our culture, our traditions, our way of life is...well, better than that.
