Foxnews.com reported recently:
A 13-year-old girl and two other students at a California middle school were arrested for allegedly conspiring to kill the girl's mother over an imposed curfew. Police responded to an incident … at a home in Hesperia, Calif. A woman reportedly told authorities that she had been attacked by her 13-year-old daughter, who fled the scene.
This story speaks volumes about where our society is going, with maniac children wanting to run their own lives and willing to kill their parents to do so.
This comes from the anti-Christian, anti-family socialist/communist left where kids are instructed to hate their parents, particularly their fathers. Because one of the central tenets of socialism/communism is to destroy the nuclear family, destroy strong men and create a government-dependent wolf-pack culture like we have in much of America today, where tens of millions of people have no personal identity through their families.
That is why Hillary Clinton wrote the book called It Takes A Village. The suggestion was that “it takes a village to raise a child”, which ignores the central role that parents play. This is to weaken the family and make it seem irrelevant. This is part of radical feminism even though it destroys millions of females too.
Yet the most crucial element for a successful life and a stable and prosperous society is a populace with a strong and secure personal identity which is attained largely through a solid family structure.
That is why we conservatives always support the nuclear family and advocate the kind of self-respect and self-confidence that comes out of the love and support in the family structure.
This War on the Family started in the 1960s and comes from a left-wing culture of atheism, satanism, drugs, demonic rock music, abortion, narcissism, family breakdown, sexual license, moral breakdown, media violence and the ongoing promotion of the concept that kids know everything and should overthrow their rational parents.
This is intended to create chaos so that the socialist/communist left can come in and control the wild society in which the government becomes the parents. This is akin to total Democrat control of black inner-city America after it has imploded into illegitimacy, violence and murder.
And this is why millions of the angry young ‘occupy Wall Street’ types today reflexively love Obama. And they hate Republicans and conservatives who oppose this youth-first agenda because conservatives know that this agenda is wrong and that it ultimately will lead these youths to descend into irrationality and often complete destruction like suicide and drug overdoses.
With one major exception, of course. Because today we conservatives believe that millions of young people would be better off rejecting their parents and their elders if those parents and elders were ‘hippies’ in the 1960s. Because many of those parents and elders are crazy people who never became wise through age but were manipulated and ruined by drugs and propaganda.
Just look at the ‘hippie’ generation today, now in its 50s, 60s and 70s, and you get a clearer picture of how this destruction works. Millions were destroyed by drugs. Millions are single and alone and divorced because sexual promiscuity pushed the sexes apart and isolated people socially. Many are aging and disconsolate because they were told that they had eternal life and wisdom but now are facing their own smallness and mortality.
Meanwhile other 1960s ‘hippies’ today spout radical and senseless things like end-of-the-world environmentalism because it contravenes the rationality that conservatives and responsible adults have been expressing since time immemorial.
And rest assured that the ‘hippies’ are still alive and well in the youth of today in a state of perpetual adolescence and narcissism. In the end that adolescence creates the confusion, chaos, arrogance, stupidity, uncertainty and apathy that Democrats exploit in order to rule people after they are weakened.
In the 1960s the radical communist left, operating out of the universities, flattered the young baby-boomers, saying that they were the smartest people ever and that they should take drugs and have all the sex that they wanted because they were so brilliant and deserved to have endless fun.
This was all a lie, of course, and was intended to disorient the youth, to make them feel falsely strong, smart and confident while at the same time ruining them with drugs and sex. This was an extremist agenda that pushed every extremist button.
Meanwhile the conservative template – restraint, moderation, scholarship, humility and self-respect – has historically been proven to be the key to a fulfilled life but was deemed old fashioned by the left of the 1960s.
This flattery tactic created a perfect storm of destruction. Young people developed no sense of propriety or balance. His/her whole world revolved around himself/herself. And in that, he/she is destroyed because no rational person can truly believe only in himself/herself. Because even the best person is very imperfect while many people have hardly any perfection at all within themselves.
Look today at most of these prime-time television shows on the three major networks, ABC, NBC, CBS. These programs never show a successful nuclear family or someone working hard. They show people in various stages of social chaos, people who are full of sass, cynicism, arrogance and stupidity who ultimately achieve nothing. These characters think only of themselves, sleep around or act like idiots like Charlie Sheen. And they become famous for doing so.
This is intended to make failure look like success. And this is how socialism/communism destroys societies – by relentlessly portraying success as failure and failure as success.
After all, what is a child plotting to kill her own mother over a simple curfew but a sign of cultural collapse and social failure?
Do you ever see this kind of behavior in a real Christian or conservative culture?
Then when the TV degenerates portray a family or people in chaos or in ruin we are all supposed to laugh and say, “Oh, yes, we know people just like that!” That is to make it appear that failure and chaos and ruin have become the norm. And then that mindset feeds on itself. It produces exactly what it portrays, slowly and incrementally.
But that is to be expected from the atheist left which contravenes every conservative and Biblical entreaty to honor your parents and to respect your elders when those parents and elders have genuine wisdom.
Look at this from lavistachurchofchrist.org about the Christian roots of respect for one’s parents:
The command to honor your parents was carried over into the law of Christ intact. "Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. "Honor your father and mother," which is the first commandment with promise: "that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth."" (Ephesians 6:1-3). The word "honor" means to place a value on something, to consider it a prized possession. In the original Hebrew, as found in Exodus 20:12, the word "honor" has very interesting roots. It comes from a Hebrew word which means "to be heavy." The word is used to describe someone who was heavy with wealth; someone who is considered important and impressive. The word is used to describe Samuel in I Samuel 9:6 "And he said to him, "Look now, there is in this city a man of God, and he is an honorable man; all that he says surely comes to pass. So let us go there; perhaps he can show us the way that we should go.""
So what does it mean to honor one's parents? In Ephesians 6:1 Paul tells children to obey their parents and proves his point by quoting the command to honor your parents. Therefore, honoring your parents means obeying them. Such obedience is pleasing to God. "Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well pleasing to the Lord" (Colossians 3:20). And by obedience, we are not talking about selective obedience where we chose the things we want to obey. "My son, hear the instruction of your father, and do not forsake the law of your mother; for they will be a graceful ornament on your head, and chains about your neck" (Proverbs 1:8-9) Children honor their parents by listening to their advice and obeying their instruction. Godly parents are a treasure to a child. They have a wealth of experience which they can pass down to their children. The importance of listening to your parents is so emphasized that even when a child is being disciplined, they are encouraged to pay attention. "A fool despises his father's instruction, but he who receives correction is prudent" (Proverbs 15:5)
Being grateful is another way that a child can honor his parents. "There is a generation that curses its father, and does not bless its mother" (Proverbs 30:11). Such a generation is not giving honor. Honoring your parents means that you do not mock them or treat them scornfully, even with a mere look. "The eye that mocks his father, and scorns obedience to his mother, the ravens of the valley will pick it out, and the young eagles will eat it" (Proverbs 30:17) Quite a vivid picture, isn't it. Mistreatment of our parents will come back to haunt us in later years.
Honor is even shown in our body language. "You shall rise before the gray headed and honor the presence of an old man, and fear your God: I am the LORD" (Leviticus 19:32) Older people, including our parents deserve respect. Slouching in a chair and saying, "Hi pops!" is not honor, though I know many parents who would accept even that small of an acknowledgement from their children.
The idea of honor or reverence even includes a bit of fear. "Every one of you shall revere his mother and his father" (Leviticus 19:3) "Revere" is the same word used when the Bible warns to fear God. As children, we ought to fear the consequences of not obeying our parents. It is what drives young people to tell their friends, "I know we're not done, but if I don't make it home by ten, I'm going to get it from from my dad." There are two halves to honor: a desire to obey and a fear of not obeying.
"Whoever curses his father or his mother, his lamp will be put out in deep darkness" (Proverbs 20:20) The word "curses" means more than a child who uses profanity at his parents. Such is wrong because it shows the contempt the child holds for his parents. Yet, "curses" literally means to make light of one's parents or to treat them with contempt. Hence, it includes much more than use of profane words. Whenever a child treats his parents as if they really don't matter, he is cursing them. When they tell him to be home by midnight and he response with "whatever," he is treating them with contempt. "And he who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death" (Exodus 21:17) In our era of lax parenthood, a death penalty for cursing one's parents seems overly harsh. But there is reason behind this law. A child who holds his parents in contempt, will hold other forms of authority in contempt as well. If a child believes he can ignore his parents as he pleases, he will assume that he can ignore the laws of society and the laws of God as well. A child who curses his parents is a disaster in the making.
