The liberal dark ages with including censorship and persecution are here. Don’t expect conservative views to get much traction in the new world of liberal intellectualism. Kirsten Powers, writing in USA Today, described the new era as “an age of un-enlightenment where you fall in line behind the mob or face the consequences.”

This time, the persecutor is not the Catholic Church or the unenlightened governments it controls. Now the persecutors are secular intellectuals. They claim to be liberal, but act in the opposite way. The liberal mantra is tolerance of all ideas and viewpoints. Now that liberal thinking has gained ascendency in society, a “mob mentality” has ascended with it. The “mob” tries to delegitimize and even persecute any dissent from their worldview.

And there are plenty of examples. Recently, a pending house-flipping TV show was cancelled because the “mob” had unearthed old remarks that the stars of the show had made about their Christian beliefs on homosexuality.

While criticizing Islam is considered to be intolerant by the “mob,” insulting Christianity is a sport. Ayaan Hirsi Ali is persona non grata and Brandeis University for attacking the prophet Mohammed, but Richard Dawkins describes God as “a misogynistic… sadomasochistic… malevolent bully” and Bill Maher calls Him a “psychic mass murderer” with hardly a yawn.

University of California-Santa Barbara women’s studies professor Mireille Miller-Young attacked a 16-year-old holding an anti-abortion sign in the campus ‘free speech zone.’ Miller-Young was charged with theft, battery and vandalism, but remains unrepentant and most important, still has her job. Meanwhile, one of Mozilla’s founders, Brendan Eich, “gave a private donation to an anti-gay marriage initiative six years ago and was ordered to recant his beliefs. When he wouldn’t, he was forced to resign from the company he helped found.”

What does it take to get “strung up in the town square?” It appears that all you need to do is express the “wrong views” in public, and the “mob” will come after you.

Why can’t people have a house-flipping show unless they believe and say the “right” things in their private lives? How can a college educator with opinions aligned with the “mob” attack a high school student and keep her job while a corporate executive with “wrong opinions” lose his job for making a campaign donation? This isn’t some Iran. This is the United States of America, the land of the free (expression included) and the home of the brave. It now requires a good deal of bravery to stand for beliefs that don’t match up with the liberal “mob.”

Whatever happened to the free market of opinions and ideas that the liberals championed for so many decades? Christian views are especially attacked. Will there come a time when God’s people will be abused because they advocate teachings that aren’t part of the mainstream worldview?

When the protection of human laws shall be withdrawn from those who honor the law of God, there will be, in different lands, a simultaneous movement for their destruction. As the time appointed in the decree draws near, the people will conspire to root out the hated sect. It will be determined to strike in one night a decisive blow, which shall utterly silence the voice of dissent and reproof. Great Controversy, page 635
