Sanford Believes He Was Chosen by God

Anyone who has read about The Family and the views of those on C Street will not be at all surprised by this statement from Mark Sanford:

“I feel absolutely committed to the cause, to what God wanted me to do with my life,” he said in an interview. “I have got this blessing of being engaged in a fight for liberty, which is constantly being threatened.”

Those in The Family believe that they are God’s chosen people and whatever they do is therefore moral and right. They tend to believe that those in power are there because God has chosen them, leading to their tendency to support foreign dictators as also being God’s chosen people.

    But not the current elected President and legislative majority of their own country, apparently.

    Bill Maher did a great episode this year that went into depth how morally corrupt these C Street douche bags are.. The hypocracy and completely un-american, un-christian things that these guys are constantly spewing literally makes me sick..

    And the best part.. There arent any taxes paid for that whole C Street operation.. They are somehow getting away with calling it a church.. The religious nuttery alone should prove them unfit for public office…

    Just had to comment! We are hearing still that Obama claims to be the Messiah – yet he did not. And here we have these guys who do claim to be put there by God and above reproach. Makes me sick, and I am a born again – but liberal – believer.

    That’s because C Street sees them as godless liberals.

    To the fundamentalist mindset (and this is not exclusive to Christian fundamentalists but also covers quite a few other extremists as well) everything that works to one’s own benefit is the work of God and everything that works to the benefit of one’s adversary is the work of Satan. So Obama is successful because he must be the Antichrist or some other servant of evil, why they and all those who side with them are successful because God is on their side.
    Such a mind is unable to consider other possibilities for their own success or their enemies’ success because there is no true ‘freedom’ in their mental universe. Everything is the predestined result of actions made by Godly or Satanic forces.
    This means that everything they do is justified because it is predestined by God and everything their enemies advocate is automatically Satanic and evil. They do not believe in their own free will or anyone else’s free will. This form of religious thinking is not only contrary to the actual texts of most major religions, which specifically state that man has the will and ability to choose his actions (good or ill) as he himself wishes, but is also entirely antithetical to the idea of true personal liberty: there is no true personal liberty as all decisions are already made by God or the Devil.
