The forgotten war

Among The Left's favorite hobbyhorses is the purported "civil war" supposedly happening in the hinterlands of Iraq. Even though the same types of car bombings and mass executions in Blue-State inner cities rarely elicit an equally lugubrious response, we are supposed to believe that the moonbats' tender hearts are overflowing with concern for the "innocent" civilians of Iraq. Well, ladies, dry your eyes, because it turns out they don't have it even half as bad as we Christians right here in the United States do. My Prayer Warriors at Agape Press explain:
We're in a spiritual war. This war is not against flesh and blood, but against the spiritual powers of Satan and his demons (Eph. 6:12).

For most Christians it's a little hard to get worked up about this war [Really? -- SNBE], since we don't have the threat of real bullets zinging past our heads every day. But wait, there are real bullets being aimed at us! Did you ever stop to think that the immorality and false ideas of much of today's entertainment media are the ammunition in this war?
Sadly, liberals are so deranged in their hatred of Freedom that they'd rather pursue red herring policy "solutions" like gun control, rather than banning rap music and The Da Vinci Code, both of which brutally slay Christianity with hollow-pointed savagery. No wonder the American electorate doesn't take Democrats seriously -- they don't know who the real enemy is.

Fortunately for us Christians, there happens to be an easy solution to safeguarding ourselves against this warfare -- by boycotting popular media:
Satan can never again own us, because we have been redeemed by Jesus Christ and we are forever in Him (1 Pet. 1:18,19). But if he can get us to listen to the empty ideas of this world instead of what Christ has said (Col. 2:8), he can influence us. If we allow him to influence us long enough, he can even control us.

This is why I am so concerned about what I allow to entertain me. I don't want to be just another target for the enemy in this spiritual war. Too much of today's entertainment media is designed to distract us from our true goal. I don't know about you, but I don't want to be strolling on the sidelines. I want to walk the walk and run the race for Jesus Christ.
Glory! The snipers in Al Qaeda's Hollywood division don't have a Prayer against the likes of Kirk Cameron and Olivia!

It goes without saying that if the Freedom-lovers in Iraq followed our lead, their troubles would end within six months and America' forces could be redeployed back home, where they're truly needed. So with that in mind, shouldn't we be subsidizing Fox's faith-based production company, in interests of securing the peace both here and Iraq? It's not like we've been especially particular about where we've thrown our money before. Praise Him!
