Whitlock: Vladimir Putin’s spiritual missile damns America

During his state of the nation address early Tuesday morning, Russian President Vladimir Putin fired a spiritual missile at the United States.

American corporate media framed the 100-minute speech as a defensive rant justifying Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and threatening nuclear war against the West.

That all may be true. But that’s not what I heard. Nuclear missiles don’t scare me. Spiritual missiles do. What Putin said about Western civilization and America spooked me. It caused me to rethink the agenda behind the Russia hoax, the debunked left-wing conspiracy theory that alleged former President Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton.

Corporate media desperately wants us to believe Trump and Putin are disciples of Satan, the worst international leaders to walk the planet since Adolf Hitler. After yesterday’s speech, I now understand why Putin is dangerous.

He at least pretends to care about God’s will. He called out the West for abandoning biblical values.

“They’re waging increasingly aggressive information attacks,” he said. “First of all targeting the young generations. Lying on every step, distorting historical truth, attacking our culture, the Russian Orthodox Church, and other traditional religious institutions in our country.

“Look at what they’re doing with their own people. They’re destroying the institution of family, their cultural historical identity. And various perversions with regard to children, up to pedophilia, are accepted as the new norm. And priests are forced to recognize and officiate same-sex weddings.”

American politicians, whether Democrat or Republican, refuse to speak the kind of unvarnished truth Putin did on Tuesday. The assault on biblical values goes unchallenged here by elected officials. The new normal here demonizes traditional Christian beliefs. Joe Biden, a self-described Catholic, would never say what Putin did. Democrats would run Biden out of office with the full support of the Republican Party.

“What we want to say [to America] is maybe they should take a look in the scripture, into the holy book of any great religion,” Putin continued. “It says that the family is a union between woman and man. And these holy texts are now being increasingly doubted in the West. The Anglican church is now considering the idea of a gender-neutral God. What can we say? God forgive them, they don’t know what they’re doing.

“Millions of people in the West realize they’re being led toward a spiritual catastrophe. People are going mad. And this does not seem to be treatable. But this is their problem, and it is our duty to protect our children. And it’s something we’re going to do, to protect them from degradation.”

I know very little about Vladimir Putin. Maybe he’s lying. Maybe he’s pandering. Maybe he’s saying these things to further divide Americans and undermine American patriotism.

It’s working.

I like Vladimir Putin more than I like Joe Biden.

Yes, I said it. I love God more than I love America. If faced with a choice between supporting the truths spelled out in the Bible or supporting a country that is defying many of those truths, I’ll side with God. I don’t have to put a great deal of thought into this.

I want an American president willing to defend biblical truth. We don’t have that right now. We haven’t had it in quite some time. America’s rejection of Judeo-Christian culture has dampened my love of country.

We no longer have an identity worth fighting and/or dying for.

Why would anyone sacrifice his life for a nation that is allowing teachers and school systems to sexualize small children? It’s not worth it.

For much of our 240-plus-year history, America was a self-perfecting republic. Our founding documents forced us to heal the wounds of slavery and unequal freedom and self-agency. It was easy to believe in America because our Constitution promised equal opportunity and rights. But more than that, our founding documents acknowledged that our rights are derived from God, a power superior to government.

I can’t believe how upside-down things have turned in my lifetime. The Russian president has more respect and reverence for the truths in the Bible than the American president.

That fact is nearly as baffling as the debate about whether men can carry babies.

Vladimir Putin believes in the natural family, while Joe Biden is appointing transvestites to military positions. Putin quotes Jesus, while Biden celebrates the heroism of Dylan Mulvaney and defends drag queen story hour.

Putin, perhaps unintentionally, referenced the book of Romans when talking about the West.

“Millions of people in the West realize they’re being led toward a spiritual catastrophe. People are going mad.”

Romans 1:28: “And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which ought not be done.”

The adjective reprobate means unprincipled and morally depraved.

Vladimir Putin said God has rejected America and that our country is beyond salvation.

For the first time in my life, I don’t have a strong argument to counter Putin’s allegation. Putin’s spiritual missile did more damage to my soul than any nuclear missile could.
