Talking with people
it has become apparent that most really don’t know much about quarantine laws
and their history. Many people seem to
take it for granted that the healthy being quarantined during Covid-time is a
perfectly natural response. Of course,
it is, quite the contrary, unheard of.
Quarantine laws are
ancient and well codified. For example,
Leviticus 13 specifies isolation for certain contagious illnesses.
During the Middle
Ages when Black Plague decimated Europe, most of the Jewish population followed
the Biblical quarantine mandates and were much less impacted by the plague than
those who didn’t do so. Unfortunately,
this resulted in their being viewed as the cause or, manipulators of the
illness. Consequently, they were
vilified and persecuted for their perceived involvement with the spread of the
disease – no good deed goes unpunished.
Quarantine laws make
sense and are intimately connected with the commandment to not murder. If one has a deadly contagious disease, of
course, one should isolate so as to not cause another to get the disease and
possibly die – knowingly to infect someone would be tantamount to murder.
However, in all of
history, I can find no instance where the quarantine applied to people who were
well or, even entire populations as we have seen mandated during the recent
Communist Chinese virus outbreak.
Quarantine laws also
have been applied to speech throughout history.
Just as it is wise to isolate deadly disease, it is wise to isolate
murderous ideas to keep them from spreading.
We currently see the
technocratic elite doing this with enthusiasm and vigor as they ban
conservatives and their ideas from their platforms.
Their tactics of
intolerance and intimidation are draconian in their efforts to not only
convince the undecided but, to silence us from voicing our opinions at all.
Even the former
President is quarantined off several forums that are granted statutory
liability immunity because they supposedly are not gate keepers of thought,
even as they daily restrict, minimize and ostracize conservatives from voicing
their ‘dangerous’ opinions.
Their egregious banning
of those that don’t agree with them conceals a radical intolerance of the truth
– a thing that liberals continue to deny exists, because all things are
relative in their minds, even as they proclaim they are its protector.
Liberals cannot bear
to associate on equal terms those who espouse the absoluteness of reality, the
fixedness of gender, the Biblical basis for law or, the sacredness of all life.
Isn’t it amazing the
path they took get to this position of power?
By incessantly proclaiming that WE should be tolerant of their
differences, by passing laws mandating that WE must associate with the
perverts, the atheist and the criminal and haranguing US for our ‘bigotry’ they
now will not tolerate OUR differences and refuse to hire and advance conservatives
who disagree with them.
left has the testicular strength necessary to apply quarantine law to religion
and morality while the right seems to be lacking in the fortitude to apply the
same tactic. But, we can re-learn from
them that we don’t have to deny the differences that separate us from the
Quite the opposite,
our duty is to proclaim those differences (just as they are doing when they ban
our ideas), speak the truth (even as they speak their ‘truth’) and not tolerate
their hate speech (which truly is hateful) any more than they do ours.
Hopefully, many of
the mushy conservatives have now learned that there is no reward in trying to
appease the unbelieving socialists. Only
by adopting our own quarantine to their murderous, unhealthy and racist speech
can we have a chance of not taking all things to the lowest possible level.
As usual, the
anti-Christians take a Biblical idea – quarantine laws- and stand them on their
head, isolating the healthy instead of the sick. Then they apply the same laws to speech &
ideation de-platforming righteous thought from the public square.
It is only because
of Christian passivity, a retreat from the integration of faith into the
culture, a preponderance of preaching that the faithful should remain pure from
the world (taken in the sense of non-involvement and ‘don’t touch’), a sense
that religious vocation was better than secular and, a pussy-livered civil and
ecclesiastical elite who didn’t have the manliness to quarantine heretical and
culture-destroying speech, it is for these reasons that we created a vacuum
that the ungodly were able to fill, grabbing the levers of media, political,
educational and business power to turn the tables on us and, in the end,
showing that they are just as intolerant as they accused us of being.
What is good for the
goose is good for the gander – May God grant us the wisdom of creative
subversion to topple the evil regime our culture has become and give us a few
real men to apply their same tactics back upon them, administered with grace
and mercy - where deserved - of course.
