My Personal Pledge To You
I do not address the following to gloat or toot my own horn as being better than someone else. But I think it is important that I take the time to address what is becoming an increasingly bad pattern.
Earlier this week I was made aware that yet another long-time defender of our faith and historic traditions has taken steps to embrace homosexuality within the framework of same-sex marriages. Regardless of the rationale behind this ministry giant, the U.S. component of World Vision, either wittingly or unwittingly opened the door to subject all true Christian ministries to the edicts of the anti-Christian activists. They have announced they are abandoning the teachings of the Bible to support homosexual marriage.
Then there came word that Dan Cathy, CEO of Chick-Fil-A, has announced that it was a “mistake” for him to speak out in favor of traditional marriage and to that end he and his business are openly embracing homosexual marriage. It is also reported that his company has dramatically cut donations to groups opposing same-sex marriage and Christian pro-family groups.
It is apparent that Cathy and Chick-Fil-A forget that hundreds of thousands of us, if not well over a million Americans turned out to support him when he was attacked for exercising his First Amendment right to speak in favor of tradition marriage. Our support gave his restaurants the single greatest day of business in the history of the corporation.
The Republican Party that we believed was worthy of our support has made it clear they are no longer interested in true conservatism. Karl Rove, Reince Priebus, and the so-called leadership of the Republican Party have been emphatic in making it known they want the Party to shift away from Constitutional Conservatism to become a Party of left-leaning moderates. A Party which embraces abortion, homosexuality, same-sex marriage, Common-Core, obamacare, and more government intrusion — to mention but a few. Rove and the Republican leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, have made it clear they will, attempt to crush any true conservative who runs for congressional office.
Here is my pledge to you. The Daily Rant (TDR) will never change or scale back our conservative bona fides. I am an unapologetic Christian Constitutional Conservative, and I will never retreat from that nor will I allow that position to be compromised. That is why I refuse to take money from PACS and/or political operatives. I will not spout Republican talking points nor have the opinions and information disseminated via TDR shaped by their money.
I feel outrage for the people who trusted these organizations enough to send donations and who supported the positions they told them to support. I view the actions of these groups and the Republican Party as an epic betrayal of the people who trusted them, and, specific to the ministries — I view their actions as a betrayal of the God they claim to serve.
Thank you for your trust in TDR. Thank you for your prayers, your support, your encouragement, and your readership. And be assured that I/we will never consciously betray that trust. It is my pledge to you that TDR will always be the voice of and for true Christian Constitutional Conservatism.
All the best,
