On Tuesday night, President Obama delivered what has to be one of the most phony State of the Union addresses ever in the history of State of the Union addresses. (Which is really saying a lot considering the idiocy of last year’s speech.) For almost an hour, the Leader of the Free World rambled on about his supposed accomplishments and the dangers of terrible things like weather, carbon emissions and the rising costs of college, as opposed to radical Islamic terrorists hellbent on slaughtering innocent Americans. Of course, he did eventually mention ISIS, labeling them as “killers and fanatics who have to be rooted out, hunted down, and destroyed.” Naturally, he failed to mention that he and his administration have failed miserably at protecting us from these fanatical killers and, in fact, have made America all the more susceptible to terrorist attacks. He went on to suggest that we shouldn’t be stirring up fearful rhetoric and that ISIS really isn’t much of a threat: “Over-the-top claims that this is World War III just play into their hands…they do not threaten our natural existence.”
I could stop here and nitpick every sentence of this speech, but I’ll skip ahead and address some broader points that I think reflect the true “state of our union.”
1.) The real threat to America is cultural godlessness, moral decay and liberalism, not terrorism.
Our nation is more vulnerable than ever, folks, and that’s just a simple and irrefutable fact. This threat isn’t coming from any sort of external entity or force like ISIS or al-Qaeda, although, yes, terrorism is something that we should be wary of and prepared to handle. God-willing, our next president will do a much better job of defending this country from its enemies (rather than handing them tanks and weapons like Obama.) But, America is rotting away from within. The very heart and soul of this once-great nation are being consumed by the evils of modern progressivism — an ideological dogma that fuels much of the corruption and depravity that runs rampant in our culture. Radical liberalism is eating away at our values, ethics and morals like some sort of disgusting parasitic bacteria. This is truly the greatest and most urgent threat of our time.
Leftism — or progressive secular Satanism as it should be labeled — is truly a religion of self-worship, godlessness and death. Look no further than Tuesday night’s State of the Union address from President Obama, the poster child of modern liberalism. This man cannot make a single speech without glorifying himself and boasting about all of the wonderful things he believes he’s accomplished. One wonders if he starts every morning by praying to himself in the mirror. His arrogance and egotism know no bounds. He is a man utterly consumed by the tenets of modern liberalism and his actions and beliefs reflect this consumption.
However, the situation is much worse than a few egomaniacal politicians. Liberalism continues to endorse, promote, market, fund and celebrate the mass slaughter of over a million innocent children per year in the United States, all under the faux guise of “women’s health.” Barack Obama and his fellow progressive ilk are directly responsible for the death of every precious baby that has perished at the hands of evil, soulless abortion doctors throughout this country. Truthfully, they have just as much blood on their hands as these infanticidal “doctors.” Of course, the senseless deaths of these infants won’t make national news. It won’t make local news. After all, these babies aren’t executed in the same fashion as the victims of radical Islamic terrorism. A violent beheading or mass shooting is far more exciting and worthy of coverage than the baby whose brain is sucked out through a tube at the local Planned Parenthood clinic five miles from your house. No one wants to talk about that. No one wants to acknowledge the reality. We are truly (and literally) committing cultural suicide under the tenets of liberal progressivism pushed by corrupt, deranged politicians like Obama. And it will only get worse.
As I and many others predicted, the president also touted the national legalization of gay marriage, saying: “It’s that spirit of progress that made these past seven years possible. It’s how we recovered from the worst economic crisis in generations…and how we secured the freedom in every state to marry the person we love.” (I guess “freedom” is sort of irrelevant, however, for those who oppose gay marriage.) This is just one of many examples of progressive liberalism’s direct assault on absolute Truth, something that our culture doesn’t care about because we stopped adhering to Truth a long time ago. But, no matter what the Supreme Court says, no one is entitled to gay marriage and, more importantly, gay marriage does not even exist. It’s an evil lie. It’s a fabrication. It’s a distortion. It’s an utter perversion of the definition of marriage — a timeless and unchangeable definition established by God Himself. I won’t waste time rehashing all of this.

2.) Our society has succumbed to a dangerous level of selfishness and an entitlement mentality that will ultimately destroy us.
Again, this is directly the fault of President Obama and those on the progressive Left. You see, liberalism encourages the growth of a mindset that says: The government owes me. I am special just for being me and I am therefore worthy to receive benefits and free stuff from my government. This is nothing short of certifiable lunacy. Sorry, but you’re just not that special. In his speech, the president hilariously claimed that Obamacare is still working, saying that “businesses have created jobs every month since Obamacare became law.” While the stats on job growth might be true — indeed some analysts confirmed this — liberals fail to acknowledge that Obamacare not only wrecked healthcare for many Americans who have insurance through other providers, but that doling out free medical care to millions of people only perpetuates and feeds the destructive societal entitlement mentality. Handing out food stamps to over 50 million Americans (to the tune of around $70 or $80 billion per year) isn’t exactly helping the situation either, particularly when many of those people are perfectly capable of getting a job and supporting themselves and their families without the help of taxpayers like you and me. And then there’s all the free birth control, cell phones and so on.
In our colossal foolishness as a nation, we’ve traded our independence and self-governance for indulgence, selfishness and unbridled greed. We’ve discarded the principles upon which America was founded and have become content to chase after self-gratification and this notion that we are the center of the universe. This is a spiritual sickness that will ultimately be our undoing.
3.) The true state of our union is not strong and should cause us to mourn.
Our society has abandoned morality and godliness and we’ve sacrificed our values on the altar of liberal progressivism. This should break your heart. It should break your heart that America leads the world in the production of pornography. It should break your heart that in one year we will contract 20 million sexually-transmitted infections: 54,000 people infected every day with one fourth of them being teenagers. It should break your heart that we’ve destroyed the definition of marriage. You should weep over the deaths of millions of defenseless unborn babies.
This is the true state of our union. And unless we humble ourselves before Almighty God — who could snuff us out with one breath — and beg His forgiveness, it will only get worse. This is a spiritual battle for the soul of this nation and one that will ultimately only be won in the spiritual realm. I think it’s time for us to realize that.
