Many are Called; Few are Chosen

Reader comment on item: Two Opposing Views of the Islamist Threat
in response to reader comment: Many, or most?

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Sep 21, 2016 at 16:50

In reading of the story of how many Russian émigrés find life in America challenging due to the mostly unfettered truly American expressions of freedom, one such story is recalled about Viktor Belenko, a former Soviet citizen who became somewhat of a story by defecting.

In a brief narrative of his adventure, he was shown a different America than that of his Soviet teachers view of America. They nearly got him to consider returning due to the overwhelming nature of being American. Once over the shock, he began his journey into what it really meant to be American.
Unfortunately, this is no longer being taught in America anymore on a broader public level, political correctness having polluted the pure American process of seeking peace without compromise; instead filling the tormented minds of the 'unwashed masses' with philosophies dedicated to the demise of the former republic as being unfit to embrace the darkened minds of secular progressive ideologies.

Being born American allowed many to escape the oppression of the past empires of variant belief systems; only now are we seeing that such deviant ideologies that hate the former American way as it seems the current Chief Executive does is taking deeper root; and now that there is an apostasy to the Christian basis of belief, he may very well finish his agenda of allowing Islam free access to sublimate the new Amerikan way to his ideal of total globalization. How 'many' are ready for that?
