Buchanan: Cultural Cleansing Of Christians In America

This past week Pat Buchanan spoke on "The Steve Malzberg Show" and discussed the liberal defeat of Christianity. Buchanan argued, "What I've always believed is we are really in a cultural war in America. It's something of a religious war, where secularism has very largely succeeded in driving [out] Christianity, which is the formative religion of the entire West. Driving that out of the public square and out of the public schools. An example I use is … a missionary who came up from Mexico when California was still part of Mexico. [He] created these missions in San Diego, San Francisco and San Luis Obispo … [which] turned into great cities in California, and he's a figure who was represented with a statue in Statuary Hall in Capitol Hill. And they're trying to get that removed."

Buchanan — a former GOP presidential candidate and speechwriter for Presidents Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan — said "Every religion or every cult and every faith, Islam's among them, Catholicism, Christianity, Judaism — they all create their moral codes and they create their moral heroes and saints and sinners and all the rest of it. The Bruce Jenner episode tells you what the modern secularism regards as really heroic and moral. We see it in the advance of same-sex marriage. The belief [is] that this is heroic and progressive and good and those who have outlawed it in the past are reactionary and their beliefs need to be driven out of public life and certainly not inculcated into children."

He also said that Christians need to be more defiant and went on to state that "We're undergoing, in a more peaceful way obviously, something the French Revolution did. They … had the great massacre. The first massacre was of the priests and, of course, they drove the [move] to take the statues down and empty the churches out. The churches and great cathedrals in Europe are now museums and some of them are restaurants and bars."
