It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World!

We are in the darkest spiritual battle for the soul of our nation in many years.

Back in 1963, the comedy “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” hit the theatres. It had many Hollywood stars including Spencer Tracy, Buddy Hackett, and Jimmy Durante. After a massive traffic jam, Smiler Grogan (Durante), before he dies, tells the onlookers about a fortune of buried loot. All of the onlookers set off to find the treasure. It’s hilarious, although I like the 2001 remake “Rat Race” even better.

I’m not sure why, but these movies remind me of progressives who have gone off the deep end, not looking for treasure but looking for ways to make the lives of average Americans miserable. How much time do they spend trying to find the latest microaggression or cultural appropriation?

Do they sleep at night? Do they form little bands of fellow snowflakes to come up with all of these offenses that can trigger them into a rage? What a miserable existence they must live, trying to make our lives miserable.

Twenty years ago, we didn’t know about personal pronouns, “nonbinary,” “transsexual,” “gender fluid,” “gender reassignment surgery,” or men getting pregnant. We didn’t have a boy wearing dresses to school, sexually assaulting a girl, then being sent to another school to do the same thing without any consequences. When the father of one of the victims expressed outrage about what happened to his daughter, he was thrown to the ground, handcuffed, and taken out of the school board meeting. How did we ever live not knowing all of these things? Pretty good, I think.

Twenty years ago, we still had the Rule of Law and equal justice under the law. Sure, the system had flaws because we live in a fallen world spiritually. There will never be a “perfect system.” Why do so many on the Left think they can transform this country into a utopia by bringing everything crashing down? Words at one time had meaning. When someone said “woman,” we knew what they were referring to. Now, even Supreme Court justices (of the leftist persuasion) fear defining a woman.

During the 1960s, while serving in the Marine Corps, I watched as Republicans were going all out to pass legislation giving blacks the same rights as whites. The Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act, if I recall, did not receive one vote from a Democrat. The Republican Party passed it on its own.

Now, 58 years later, we’re told Republicans are racist, white supremacists, homophobic, and the scourge of people of color. Not that the Democrats really do anything to help minorities. They just keep them on the urban plantations with the promise that “someday” things will be better if they vote Democrat.

We’re living in the times the Prophet Isaiah spoke of: “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter” (Isaiah 5:20).

While it may look hopeless, it’s not. There are millions and millions of Christians across the country begging Heaven for the next Great Awakening! But it will not come easily. We are in the darkest spiritual battle for the soul of our nation in many years. So, Patriots and believers, suit up, for the battle is the Lord’s (Joshua 1:9).
