The Progressive Prayer
The Original Lord’s Prayer:
The Original, by Jesus Christ: Matthew 6:9-13 King James Version (KJV)
9 Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
I wrote a prayer for the left, in response to.
The Progressive Prayer:
Our Farter, Who art an Heathen
Shallow be thy name
Give us this day, our daily humor
Thy Marxism come They will be done on Earth As it is in Horse Feathers Heaven
Forgive us our blue hair, as we forgive those who trespass against the SJWs.
Lead us not into the temptation, but deliver us from the Alt-Right
For thine is the Kingdom, The power-ranger and the glory-hole, Forever and forever, Amen.
(A woman……also) -The Progressive Prayer
My little parody prayer is not just me being vulgar. Not just gratuitous vulgarity. I use vulgarity because I’m trying to get a serious point across: there is a religious war on….in front of our eyes. Sometimes the sublime and the ridiculous hold hands in life, it’s hard to tell them apart. Same with the vulgar and the sacred. Marxism is a religion….with no God. It is a false religion. A very strange religion. Marxism, it mimics religion in many ways. Why is Marxism successful? Humans have elements within their psyche, which are religious elements. Even atheists do. It’s how we evolved as humans. That’s why every human society, every race, for all of history, has been religious. No exception.
We humans have a strange dilemma. An intellectual Gordian knot, of sorts. Now we are in the modern world. Science has explained our origins in non-religious terms. This has caused many to abandon religion. Thanks, Darwin….Since many people have lost their religious faith, Marxism taps into the empty spiritual void in many people, left by the absence of faith.
Humans have a need for morality….and faith. Marxism provides them with a false morality…but a morality nonetheless. And a common moral set of beliefs is essential for social stability…and we now have competing moral visions.
There are stark differences in the Christian faith vs. the Marxist faith. Religious people believe in God the Father….ultimate creator of the laws of physics which evolved/created the Universe. In Marxism, there is no God….just man at the center of reality. That’s a religion. The object of Marxist faith is in the man….or the State itself. That seems a pretty low standard, to me….since humans all have feet of clay.
In the Christian vision of life, God has infinite intelligence and is to be worshiped. Unlike most religious people, I never saw a conflict between evolution and religion, since ever since I was quite young I thought the Bible was mostly metaphor, revealing underlying truth….not literal scientific truth. By contrast with the wonder of the Judaeo-Christian God, the religion of Marxism lives in a cold, dead universe where there is only struggles for power among groups, then death. Marxism does not worship a creator. Marxism worships nothing but empty gas….thus “God the Farter”….not “God the Father”.
The Lord’s Prayer talks in religious terms of “Heaven”….and since Marxists are generally atheists who say they don’t believe in God, the word I used in my little parody poem, in place of “Heaven”, is “Heathen”…a similar word, indicating their godless nature…Marxists are heathens, not religious people.
I wrote in my parody: “Thy Marxism come”….indicating the hidden religious nature of Marxism, of a goal of a Heaven on Earth….and that’s real blasphemy, right there. No such thing as Heaven on Earth. Marxism is religious apostasy, a sick spin off of essential Christian teaching….a parody of the moral lines of the Bible….which are based on justice, morality and a vision of eventual Heaven. But in Biblical terms, that’s for another life. The Marxists are in a hurry. They won’t accept the broken state, the flawed state of nature, so they foolishly think they can create Heaven on Earth. Marxism has always been naive and that’s it’s downfall. It’s out of tune with how life actually is. The Bible is much much closer to reality…in it’s vision of life.
Life is not constructed to be Heaven on Earth. Genesis is pretty clear on that. So is science. “Shallow be thy name”….instead of holy….hallowed be thy name…..in the original prayer Instead in my parody it becomes shallow….we have “shallow”…which is what Marxist are….materialistic and shallow people, with a vision of life that is empty and pointless…and utterly with no hope, beyond the grave.
“Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Horsefeather’s Heaven”….that is a reference to the Marx Brother’s Movie Horsefeathers, obviously. Click on the link at bottom for 3 minutes of real Marxism! So it’s a play on the name Marx…to indicate Marxism is just a joke….a very bad one. As an economic system, it was a joke. It didn’t work. That’s why it crashed. Before it crashed, it put 100 million humans in a casket. And now that vision of life, of politics, has taken over the Democratic Party. They are all Marxists….and not the good kind, the Groucho kind.
The original King James Version says to God in the Lord’s Prayer: “Give us this day, our daily bread”.…in my prayer parody it becomes: “Give us this day, our daily humor”…. a call for a laugh and reference to Groucho Marx….the only Marx I ever liked……Karl Marx was insane. His ideas led to more genocide than Hitler. Now the left embraces his ideas, as Jordan Peterson has said many times. Professor Peterson spent decades cataloging the horrors of communism and knows exactly the horror show that awaits the United States if we embrace socialism. I prefer the Judaeo-Christian vision of life, with a moral universe and a God to pray to, as a higher moral standard, beyond mere humans…. I have little to no faith in humans, that’s why.
The original says, “Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors”….I say, in the Progressive Prayer: “Forgive us our blue hair, as we forgive those who trespass against the SJWs.”….reference to the blue haired nut-job feminists that inhabit the progressive far left.
“Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil”….the Bible says. In the Progressive Prayer, progressives pray: “Save us from the alt-right”….
The reason for the Progressive Prayer? The left sees all the political theater in religious terms, even if they are not religious in a self-aware manner, and they think they don’t believe in God. In reality, the left believes in God…they are just confused. That’s because the essential nature of man is religious. He just sometimes doesn’t know it. So progressives feel that the “alt-right” is evil, Satanic. Thus ““Save us from the alt-right”….
The left, they are so blind and confused, they don’t even know they are thinking in religious terms.
In the original: “For thine is the Kingdom. And the power and the glory”. I parodied that to show what the left is about: “For thine is the Kingdom. The power ranger and the glory hole” to reference the vulgar, childish and sexually perverse nature of much of the progressive left….filled as it is, with moral degenerates.
The Biblical version of the Lord’s prayer ends in a simple “amen”. I wrote in my parody: “Amen….and a woman” as a cheeky reference to progressive leftist feminism, with it’s insistence on it’s sick view of male-female relations and gender “equality”….based on views of gender that completely conflict with the religious vision of gender in the Bible. Feminism is a grab bag of sick leftist ideas ruining the family, ruining gender relations, ruining America. There is a spiritual war going on, right now in the West….for our survival. We lost our Christian faith, many of us. That doesn’t save us from a religious conflict, it only slightly hides it, for those with scales over their eyes. The right should be aware that politics is just spiritual themes played out in public. The right should fight political fights, building up a moral vision to offer the public….based on a Judaeo-Christian view of the world.
Of course, the real question many have is this: can post-religious societies continue to exist and survive? Marxism to some degree, it came about in a spiritual vacuum created by science in the West. Is it too late to bring back Christianity? What happens when the dominant faith for Europeans disappears? Can human societies survive long term, if atheist? How do we reconfigure such a world? Along Identitarian lines? Or something else? My own view is that humans are wired by evolution, for religion. We not only won’t survive without some form of religion, but that we are not even built for it. We can’t do it. It’s impossible. Marxism may in fact have arisen out of a spiritual crisis in the West….as Christianity died, a false political philosophy arose, to fill the evolved religious void. And to make things worse, the new religion of Marxism has proven to be a complete failure. As religions go, it’s the loser’s religion. We need to learn to be heretics of this new feminist-marxist-post-modernist religion. Since many in the West yearn for spiritual meaning, many run to embrace Marxism, to fill that void…..and all the while rejecting Christianity and poo-pooing religion as something for weak minds…while not understanding that Marxism itself is a religion…..hopeless Stupes.
What strange times we live in: Atheists rush to embrace a religion. A false one, but a religion nonetheless. And they do so, unaware that it’s even a religion.
How should the right respond to this insanity? With prayer and humor perhaps? Is there a Gregorian Prayer for the Stupes?
Then we need to respond, with argument. The right needs to show the public both that socialism doesn’t work…it’s a complete moral and practical failure. And to show the public that in fact, capitalism works. It’s essential that younger people understand that capitalism is a moral system, since it is the system that ultimately provides what people need. Capitalism needs to market itself better. It’s interesting that the hardest people in the world to convince of the merits of communism….are people who grew up in communist countries. I knew a few when I was younger. Today in Eastern Europe, if you push communism, they will string you up. They have already been through that horror show. They remember it well. They are not going back there. In America, we have lived in such a successful capitalist system for so long, we are naive….especially our young. Many think communism and socialism will work, this time….not withstanding the 100 Million corpses that communism piled up. It won’t work. Communism does not work. It is immoral. At the heart of it, communism and Marxism is a failure because it is a godless, sick degenerate view of life. A false religion. What starts as sick and degenerate at a spiritual level, it leads to complete social annihilation if embraced. Communism, post-modernism, feminism, socialism….are the symptoms of a spiritual disease of our time. We must find the root causes, find solutions, find better ways, better visions to think about morality, spirituality and economics….while combining all three in a new vision of life, to offer the young. Unfortunately many younger people embrace radical left wing ideas….and would vote for the Bernie Sanders type of candidate. We are one President away from a complete breakdown of the American way of life. It would only take one wrong choice in President, to end America.
Chose carefully. Chose Harpo….not Karl!
Finally, we need to laugh in the face of Marxism. It really is a joke. An intellectual joke. Rabbi Don Lemon has been on CNN much lately, comparing Trump’s policies to Hitler. Suddenly Rabbi Lemon is a noted Holocaust scholar? How did that happen?
And what about AOC? She is an utter fool. And a commie one at that. Securing our borders is not only humane, but also simply makes sense. If illegals don’t want to be detained, don’t break the law. This doesn’t compare to the Holocaust. How in the world did this idiot woman get elected? She has the brain power of a lifeless rock. This is the future of the Democrat Party? Laugh at her. Laugh at the Progressive commie idiots. She is demeaning every Holocaust survivor and their families. Shame on her. That’s why we can’t have censorship: so we can laugh fools out of existence.
I blame feminism. One of the interesting side effects of feminism is “confident stupidity”. Girls are told in school, you are geniuses. So then a bartender is elected to Congress, based on her hips. Suddenly she is a Holocaust scholar. “Confident stupidity”…..thanks, feminism!
We need to find our sense of merriment, again. Make Mocking Idiots Great Again!
