  Russia is on God's side - Pat Buchanan

22 April 2014, 03:20 èè Analyzing Vladimir Putin’s speech on the day when Russia reunited with Crimea, Pat Buchanan made a conclusion that "Russia is on God's side. The West is Gomorrah." Pat Buchanan, Former Assistant to the President for Communications gave his assessment of the Putin’s actions. According to him, Russia is "planting Russia's flag firmly on the side of traditional Christianity", standing firmly in its position against reproductive choice and LGBT rights. This, according to Buchanan is the evidence that God is on Putin's side in his showdown with the West.

In his column on April 4 Buchanan named Putin as the global leader against "a hedonistic secular and social revolution coming out of the West".
Previously, the West along with Western leaders and media compared Putin’s actions on Crimean issue to Hitler and Austrian Anschluss. Buchanan thinks that Vladimir Putin knows exactly what he is doing.

As Buchanan puts it, "In the culture war for the future of mankind, Putin is planting Russia's flag firmly on the side of traditional Christianity." He claims that Putin’s speeches go along with the speeches of John Paul II regarding the "culture of death."

The West firm position on easy divorce, pornography, homosexuality, euthanasia etc go against the fundamental Christian values, Buchanan thinks.
According to Allan Carlson, founder of World Congress of Families (WCF), "While the other super-powers march to a pagan world-view. Russia is defending Christian values. During the Soviet era, Western communists flocked to Moscow. This year, World Congress of Families VII will be held in Moscow, Sept. 10-12."
From the West point of view, Russia is standing against the LGBT community, effectively imposing bans between same-sex marriages, Pat Buchanan says that Putin is "trying to re-establish" his country's "moral compass."

In December, he named Putin social conservatism leader. Recently he has taken Putin’s side in the reunification of Crimea, standing strongly ideologically pro-Russian in his views.

Buchanan: Putin Is Leader Of Global Conservative Movement

SUBMITTED BY Brian Tashman on Tuesday, 12/17/2013 12:00 pm - Conservative commentator Pat Buchanan is completely enamored with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and is particularly excited about his anti-gay crackdown. In his syndicated column today, Buchanan lauds Putin as a leader of “conservatives and traditionalists in every country” who are resisting “the militant secularism of a multicultural and transnational elite” who push “abortion on demand, homosexual marriage, pornography, promiscuity, and the whole panoply of Hollywood values.”

Putin is a champion of “conservatives, traditionalists and nationalists of all continents and countries” and has taken up their fight “against the cultural and ideological imperialism of what he sees as a decadent West,” Buchanan writes.

With America clearly in mind, Putin declared, “In many countries today, moral and ethical norms are being reconsidered.”

“They’re now requiring not only the proper acknowledgment of freedom of conscience, political views and private life, but also the mandatory acknowledgment of the equality of good and evil.”

Translation: While privacy and freedom of thought, religion and speech are cherished rights, to equate traditional marriage and same-sex marriage is to equate good with evil. No moral confusion here, this is moral clarity, agree or disagree.

President Reagan once called the old Soviet Empire “the focus of evil in the modern world.” President Putin is implying that Barack Obama’s America may deserve the title in the 21st century.

Nor is he without an argument when we reflect on America’s embrace of abortion on demand, homosexual marriage, pornography, promiscuity, and the whole panoply of Hollywood values. Our grandparents would not recognize the America in which we live.

Moreover, Putin asserts, the new immorality has been imposed undemocratically.

The “destruction of traditional values” in these countries, he said, comes “from the top” and is “inherently undemocratic because it is based on abstract ideas and runs counter to the will of the majority of people.”

Does he not have a point?

Unelected justices declared abortion and homosexual acts to be constitutionally protected rights. Judges have been the driving force behind the imposition of same-sex marriage. Attorney General Eric Holder refused to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act.

America was de-Christianized in the second half of the 20th century by court orders, over the vehement objections of a huge majority of a country that was overwhelmingly Christian.

And same-sex marriage is indeed an “abstract” idea unrooted in the history or tradition of the West. Where did it come from?

Peoples all over the world, claims Putin, are supporting Russia’s “defense of traditional values” against a “so-called tolerance” that is “genderless and infertile.”

While his stance as a defender of traditional values has drawn the mockery of Western media and cultural elites, Putin is not wrong in saying that he can speak for much of mankind.



As the decisive struggle in the second half of the 20th century was vertical, East vs. West, the 21st century struggle may be horizontal, with conservatives and traditionalists in every country arrayed against the militant secularism of a multicultural and transnational elite.



He is seeking to redefine the “Us vs. Them” world conflict of the future as one in which conservatives, traditionalists and nationalists of all continents and countries stand up against the cultural and ideological imperialism of what he sees as a decadent West.

“We do not infringe on anyone’s interests,” said Putin, “or try to teach anyone how to live.” The adversary he has identified is not the America we grew up in, but the America we live in, which Putin sees as pagan and wildly progressive.

Franklin Graham Is The Latest American Social Conservative To Praise Putin

 

TOM KLUDT – MARCH 19, 2014, 11:05 AM EDT

Vladimir Putin is getting all sorts of love from America. Republican hawks have been impressed ..... while social conservatives can't help but tip their hat....

The latter category welcomed the evangelist Franklin Graham to its ranks this month.

Graham, the son of Rev. Billy Graham, praised Putin for signing a law that bars “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations to minors."

“In my opinion, Putin is right on these issues,” Graham wrote in the latest issue of Decision magazine, as quoted by the Raleigh News & Observer. “Obviously, he may be wrong about many things, but he has taken a stand to protect his nation’s children from the damaging effects of any gay and lesbian agenda.

As Graham sees it, Putin compares favorably to President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and many members of Congress, all of whom he says "have turned their backs on God and His standards."

Graham echoes conservative commentator and former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan, who commended Putin's "moral clarity" in December.

"President Reagan once called the old Soviet Empire 'the focus of evil in the modern world.' President Putin is implying that Barack Obama's America may deserve the title in the 21st century," Buchanan wrote. "Nor is he without an argument when we reflect on America's embrace of abortion on demand, homosexual marriage, pornography, promiscuity, and the whole panoply of Hollywood values."

The American Conservative's Rod Dreher followed that column by saying he didn't necessarily agree with all of Buchanan's argument, but agreed that Putin was "on to something."

A few days before Buchanan's piece was published, Matt Barber at WND, a bastion of fringe right-wing thought, wrote that Putin "feels emboldened to claim for Russia the mantle of world moral leader."

But the evangelist Bryan Fischer was saluting Putin before all of them. In October, Fischer called Putin a "lion of Christianity."

“The contrast between [Putin] and our president could not possibly be more striking,” Fischer lamented. “Just a bizarre day. To ever think we would get to the day that Russia would be more advanced spiritually than the United States. I mean, it’s just staggering to see what is happening to this country.”
