Christian Militants Don’t Need to Bring Down the Country

Rep. Shelia Jackson-Lee misses the point:

In an exchange with witness Patrick Dunleavy, the former deputy inspector of the criminal intelligence unit, New York Department of Correctional Services, Rep. Jackson Lee mentioned the case of a man who blew up an abortion clinic and proposed that this perhaps was an attempt to undermine U.S. law that allows a woman to procure an abortion.

Rep. Lee then said, “As we look to be informational, we should include an analysis of how Christian militants or others might bring down the country. We have to look broadly, do we not?”

Dunleavy answered: “I don’t know that Christian militants have foreign country backing or foreign country financing.”

Lee then said, “I don’t think that’s the issue. The issue is whether or not their intent is to undermine the laws of this nation. And I think it is clear that that is the case. So it’s not — your distinction is not answering the question.”

The simple truth is that Christian militants–or others who profess or call themselves Christians–don’t need to work at bringing down the country.  With a government that spends itself silly, regulates and taxes its productive sector into oblivion, dillies in expensive wars it either has no intention or concept of winning, and is directed by an elite which does not live in reality, it’s only a matter of time before the “country” brings itself down.  Once this is accomplished, all the “Christian militants” or others need to do is to move in and pick up the pieces.

That last point is the tricky part.  Most conservatives and Christians refuse to play that kind of waiting game, but continue to attempt to fix things in their current state, which in the short term only lets the present state of affairs roll on.  Jackson-Lee and others of her idea are not only foolish for refusing to see this; they are also consummate ingrates.
