Belief vs. Bigotry
Ruth Benedict (lesbian lover of Margaret Mead) had a list of words (8) from belief to opinion, which could progressively be used to move a person from one end of the spectrum of words, where belief would be honourable, to where it would be regarded as bigotry. Belief is where a person hold's to a set position, trying to persuade another person that his position is right and the other persons position is wrong. Discussion would be this form of communication. But in an environment of dialogue, where all belief is treated as an opinion (how one feels, and what he thinks in the 'moment,' which is adaptable to 'change'), anyone holding to his belief, refusing to present it as an opinion or theory is easily defined as a bigot. This is what is going on today.
In a world of "equality," i.e. a world based upon man's carnal nature, anyone holding firmly to their belief is easily labeled as a bigot. While a person can be wrong in his belief he is entitled to hold to his belief unless it infringes upon the right of belief (religion) itself . It shows you how far down the road of dialectic reasoning we have come, where Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud would feel at home, with believers being treated as bigots, with religion being perceived as an "opiate" (Marx) or as a "substitute gratification" (Freud) and abomination accepted as the way of life.
Common Core is spewing out millions of children perceiving that belief is bigotry. What do you expect when we removed belief in the Lord God and the Lord Jesus Christ from the public classrooms, with "educators" (facilitator's of 'change') and "accredited" schools (including "Christian") using Marxist curriculum (Bloom's "Taxonomies") in the classroom. "The walls between races and tribes, natives and immigrants, Christians and Muslims and Jews can not stand. These hallowed walls we must tear down." (Obama in Berlin, July, 2008.) When you negate freedom of religion (pressure all participants to "willingly" set aside the preaching and teaching of truth to be accepted as given, i.e. to be accepted by faith, to instead dialogue their opinions to a consensus) all you have left is freedom from religion (where all are "encouraged" to worship, i.e. can not "buy or sell" without worshiping the carnal nature of man over and against the Lord God and the Lord Jesus Christ).
When we love the Father, His walls of protection are a source of peace to our soul, but when we love the things of the world His walls become a barrier to the carnal desires of our flesh.
"No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." Luke 16:13
