Mandeville, LA –This Clip of The Day was originally aired and published on Jul 9,2013 and is part of the Founders Pass Flashback Collection.

Exclusive Transcript – Is there anything worth conserving anymore, anything?  I don’t mind having the debate, but it seems to me that the continued issues of these provocative things is in and of itself exactly what we used to accuse the progressives of.  You just keep pushing and pushing until you finally get your way.  You finally break down every conservative on earth and you finally make conservatives start acting like liberals or acting like progressives.  Now we have conservatives that are doing the exact same thing.  Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mike:  David Lampo has this post at American Conservative Magazine, amconmag.com, “Why Gay Rights Are Civil Rights—And Simply Right.”  I don’t have time to get into all the details here, but Lampo’s argument is that conservatives should embrace the gay rights movement, including the gay marriage movement, and should treat it as though a part of it was a wellspring of theirs.  Lampo implies “Conservatism always defends rights.”  If you read the entire piece, it’s posted in today’s Pile of Prep.  Mr. Lampo’s conclusions here, I don’t think, are very conservative.  They certainly aren’t very traditional.  This continues in the same vein of provocative statements and exhortations that it ought to be part of the conservative movement to drop many of its ages-old attachments to Transcendence and to God and to conserving the better parts and the more traditionally-moral parts of Western civilization because they just don’t work anymore.

Hear the story of the United States AFTER the Constitution like you’ve never heard it before

Meanwhile, David Brooks has a piece in the New York Times today about the wonders of secularism called “The Secular Society.”  The theme is “it’s not a bad thing that we chased God out of life because God was a boob.  He never really existed.  Well, he might have.  There’s a possibility that he might have, but because we have science and what have you, we don’t need God anymore.”  God has been replaced by Einstein and Oppenheimer and scientists and what have you.  It’s just really disturbing to read and see because Brooks is supposed to be a conservative as well.

This leads me to pose the question. Is there anything worth conserving anymore, anything?  I don’t mind having the debate, but it seems to me that the continued promotion of these issues, of these provocative things is in and of itself exactly what we conservatives used to accuse the progressives of.  You just keep pushing and pushing until you finally get your way.  You finally break down every conservative on earth and you finally make conservatives start acting like liberals or acting like progressives.  Now we have conservatives that are doing the exact same thing.  It’s just very frustrating.

If you’re one of the few people that will try and stand the line, you’re relegated to a corner of society.  [mocking] “You go stand over there, Birzer!  No, there’re no TV appearances for you Elliott III!  You’re not getting a book deal either.  Publish your own damn book.  You’re no longer part of our conservative revolution, Mister.  You need to get with the times and jettison the old.”  Even a defense or a citation of the old is now seen as not fashionable by some in “conservative” circles.  It’s a very, very disturbing trend.

  • FORGET, PLEASE, modern “conservatism.” It has been a failure because it has been, operationally, de facto, Godless. In the political/civil government realm it has ignored Christ and what Scripture says about the role and purpose of civil government. Thus, it failed. Such secular conservatism will not defeat secular liberalism because to God they are two atheistic peas-in-a-pod and thus predestined to failure. As Stonewall Jackson’s Chief of Staff R.L. Dabney said of such a humanistic belief more than 100 years ago:

    

”[Secular conservatism] is a party which never conserves anything. Its history has been that it demurs to each aggression of the progressive party, and aims to save its credit by a respectable amount of growling, but always acquiesces at last in the innovation. What was the resisted novelty of yesterday is today one of the accepted principles of conservatism; it is now conservative only in affecting to resist the next innovation, which will tomorrow be forced upon its timidity and will be succeeded by some third revolution; to be denounced and then adopted in its turn.

    

“American conservatism is merely the shadow that follows Radicalism as it moves forward towards perdition. It remains behind it, but never retards it, and always advances near its leader. This pretended salt hath utterly lost its savor: wherewith shall it be salted? Its impotency is not hard, indeed, to explain. It is worthless because it is the conservatism of expediency only, and not of sturdy principle. It intends to risk nothing serious for the sake of the truth.”

    In any event, “politics,” for the most part today, is whoring after false gods. It will not save us. Our country is turning into Hell because the church in America has forgotten God (Psalm 9:17) and refuses to kiss His Son (Psalm 2.) See, please, 2 Chronicles 7:14ff for the way to get our land healed.
