Christians Say the Darnedest Things: The Dangerous Theocratic Delusions of Andrew Torba

Why are we allowing our country to be ruled by atheists, Satanists, and pagans? This is a Christian nation.

At this point we [True Christians] have no choice but to “build our own” everything. That starts by supporting those who are already building and share our values. It’s not about simply building our own social networking platforms anymore, it’s about building our own Christian economy. One without cancel culture. One that doesn’t embrace the demonic and degenerate cult religion of critical theory.

Critical theory (cultural marxism, the cult of social justice, etc) is a fraudulent, vapid, and pathetic subversion of well-meaning Christians, churches, and Christian values in general.

It lures decent God-fearing people into practicing a false and demonic pseudo-religion designed to accelerate their spiritual and literal demise. It preys on the malleable minds of our youth. It enslaves those who practice it and seeks to destroy those who do not.

It is a demonic imitation gospel and most certainly not the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It must be mocked, shunned, and rebuked by all Christians. Now is not the time to sleepwalk through history on this subject. We must know the enemy’s fake gospel better than they know it themselves so we can lead others away from it and towards to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Talk to your kids about these things. Homeschool them if at all possible. Cut the cable cord. Delete the Big Tech apps from their phones and your own. We have a lot of work to do, but remember that we have the Creator of the Universe on our side. Through Him all things are possible.

I was talking about some of these things with a friend this morning and she used a term that made a lot of sense to me: “the silent secession.” At the moment this secession is largely digital and economic, not geographical, but perhaps that will change at some point in the future. I, for one, am in full support of Jesusland.

America is a Christian nation. The foundation of Western Civilization itself is built on Christianity and more specifically: on the firm foundation of Jesus Christ. The second that changed is the second the destruction began.

    Torba: “Delete the Big Tech apps from their phones and your own.”

    And also be sure to boycott all things Microsoft, Apple, Samsung, etc. Stand firm. No compromise!

    Urgh, if he’s the patriotic American he thinks he is, he’d understand that America was founded on freedom of religion (including the right to have no religion), not ‘freedom of Christianity’. I bet he, like other Christian fundamentalists, believes freedom of religion doesn’t apply when it comes to other religions.

    so…I’m confused… they are calling out something they are against, then do the thing they just said they are against?

    Cancel culture is bad, but they want to cancel many things, even if it include an entire country?

    America is a christian country, except it isn’t a christian country

    Kids are malleable, pull them from society to isolate them and teach them your own biases.

    So fighting for social justice is fraudulant, is it? Right wing extremism is considered to be ‘godly’, is it? Long live democratic socialism!

    I’m not a US-ian but from what I read about fundy leaders, dominionists across the pond, I wonder how their delusional theocratic government would ever work out in practice. I suggest that right from the first board meeting of these leaders, some with guns no doubt, the spats would be so fierce, some wouldn’t emerge alive. Like the proverbial cats in a sack. There’s the question of whose doctrine is the purest, (Mine, mine, me,me, of course), who gets to be head honcho, with autocratic power naturally and who gets the best mansion and newest jet plane.

    The pandemic world has added new challenges in already challenged nation. Amurkan Jesus-mongers need journalists like Mencken to help them surmount their debilitating myopia.
    “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” H.L. Mencken
    American Kool-Aid Christianity is now, today, a greater threat to the survival of the nation than any pandemic ever was…
    Does Andrew Torba have any validity at all outside truckdom and the cult of the fundamentalism? Here in Canada misinformed truckers go after the CBC because the Right Wing Whackos say they are ‘owned’ by the government. In fact, if one follows news across the available spectrum of big media, CBC offers a balance of information. Extremists detest any balance of opinions. They literally hate the free speech they tout as a mantra. Truckers draping Canadian flags over their rigs and parading on our streets is not a good sign but a symptom of the COVID-19 times. The King has no clothes no matter the flag-waving, no matter the cries of Freedom!

    I don’t have time to go into all the inaccuracies listed in his post, but let’s just say he has a very limited white male right-wing evangelical dominionist USA-centered view of reality. As others have stated, he’s also hypocritical in his choice of cancelations.
