The Ghosts of History

From John Haskins:
The ghosts of history (and the present) are whispering in our ears

For those who believe Mitt Romney's claim that he is "defending" marriage and the natural human family, and that he was forced to strike down his own oath of office, nullify a state constitution and order illegal and void homosexual "marriage":

"The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes." - Benjamin Disraeli

For Governor Mitt Romney:

"You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips." - Oliver Goldsmith

For those who believe that:
~ there is such a thing as a "homosexual (or bisexual or transgendered) child"
~ that Americans who hold to traditional moral values are beating them up and forcing them to commit suicide by the tens of thousands
~ that to rescue these "homosexual children" we must indoctrinate every American child to believe that anal sex and lesbianism are normal, innocent, and beautiful behaviors and that the amply proven harm that causes and results from them is imaginary
~ that nature and God and thousands of years of human history and common sense and 150 years of psychological and sociological research into how boys and girls need both fathers and mothers are irrellevant; and that any rebuttal to the surreal propaganda of "gay families" is just seathing, murderous, homophobic "hate":

"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

For those who believe that the Next Great Hope of the Republican Party (much less the Democrat Party) will do anything to restore our constitutions, our values, our rights as parents to parent our own children, to reverse the gradual criminalization of Judeo-Christian values, or even read with an honest mind the constitution he or she swears to defend:

"We are perpetually being told that what is wanted is a strong man whonwill do things. What is really wanted is a strong man who will undo things; and that will be the real test of strength." - G.K. Chesterton

For those who think that anti-faith, anti-truth, anti-reality, anti-child, anti-family, anti-heterosexuality, anti-humanity "tolerance" and "diversity" are leading to anything but destruction, social anarchy and political tyranny -- and for those who have noticed that these fruits of atheistic relativism are being propagandized as having the stamp of approval of Jesus Christ and "true religion":

"Atheism in itself has no cohesive force. Whatever social cohesion it has provided so far has come more from its destructive hostility to the Christian civilization it has totally failed to improve on." - Joseph Sobran
