    The Other Side of the Coin

    In my last post I examined how a possible crisis might emerge, with conflict between the Orthodox and the Progressives. In that case the Progressives were the instigators of the civil unrest. The blog The Pryhills gives us a glimpse of some possible trouble-makers from the Orthodox Camp, Christian Separatists.

    Christians have actively tried to return the United States to their moral foundations for more than 20 years. We now have a "Christian" president, a "Christian" attorney general, and a Republican Congress and Supreme Court. Yet consider this:

    -Abortion continues unabated
    -Sodomite marriage is now legal in Massachusetts (and coming soon to a neighborhood near you) (ACE ADDS: It's about damn time!)
    -Children still may not pray in our schools (ACE ADDS: I beg to differ; there's plenty of prayer in schools)
    -Our schools continue to teach the clearly discredited theory of Darwinian evolution
    -The Bible is still not welcome in schools except under unconstitutional strict FEDERAL guidelines
    -The 10 Commandments remain banned from public display
    -Sodomy is now legal AND celebrated as "diversity" rather than perversion
    -Preaching Christianity will soon be outlawed as "hate speech"

    Attempts at reform have proven futile. Future elections will not stop the above atrocities, but rather will exacerbate them and lead us down an even more deadly path.

    So what can be done? ChristianExodus offers the opportunity to try a strategy not yet employed by Bible-believing Christians. Rather than spend resources in continued efforts to redirect the entire nation, we will redeem States one at a time. Millions of Christian conservatives are geographically spread out and diluted at the national level. Therefore, we must concentrate our numbers in a geographical region with a sovereign government we can control through the electoral process.

    ChristianExodus is orchestrating the move of thousands of Christians to South Carolina for the express purpose of dissolving that State's bond with the union.

    Sound familiar? It should. These extremists are essentially following much the same steps that the original secessionists took one hundred and forty years ago. The results will almost certainly be the same. Some people just don't learn. How will this turnout? Tough to say, but I doubt that they will succeed in getting a majority in a State like South Carolina. Too many people. However, they could possibly get one of the least populated states, like Wyoming. I don't know how many of these Christian Separatists there are, probably less than 100,000, but it is possible they could take over a sparsely populated state. What would happen then? Well, when they tried to secede the Federal Government would likely intervene. The Feds wouldn't beat around the bush like Lincoln did, there is precedent, and I wouldn't be surprised to see the State Capital "occupied." Now, there would be plenty of people in the state would not be CSers, so they would likely have to be protected. What would happen when troops moved in? Tough to say. Some of the separatists wouldn't fight, but some would. I suspect that it would look a bit like Waco, writ large. The fighting probably wouldn't go on for very long, although some places may be laid siege to, in order to minimize casualties. A constriction method of bringing the rebels to their knees would likely be employed. The separatists would probably lose members, either through defection or death, and their numbers will dwindle. Eventually only the hard core members will remain. I wouldn't be surprised if some, many in fact, pulled a Masada.

    Would this end the conflict between Progressives and Orthodox? No. But it would delay it. And weaken the Orthodox cause considerably.
