The left-wing rage on college campuses and other venues is really a spiritual problem rooted in evil, says a longtime conservative activist.
"The demonic world has a hold of these people," Linda Harvey tells OneNewsNow, "and the same principles apply: Do everything you can to deny truth a voice."
Harvey explained her concerns in a lengthy commentary for WorldNetDaily, describing a "progressive rage" that is reflects the "rise of everyday evil in America."
Christians are aware of this spiritual battle, she writes, because demons shudder at the words "Jesus Christ." That's because His name is synonymous with "truth," she says, and hence the world hates truth.
Citing the words of a self-proclaimed witch, Harvey writes that the occult world relies on spoken words such as chants and incantations to produce demonic power.
"So the opposite is also true in the occultist worldview," Harvey writes. "The words of one’s opponents – full of 'negativity' – must not be permitted."
In other words, darkness masquerading as light must stamp out the real light or risk being stopped.
Citing recent examples of such behavior, Harvey writes about a lesbian Florida teacher who forbids students from wearing a cross and an assistant principal who cursed and mocked teenage pro-life activists.
The videotaped confrontation with the pro-lifers is especially revealing because school official Zach Ruff mocks the students when they mention salvation through Jesus Christ.
"I'm as gay as the day is long and twice as sunny," Ruff tells the two teens, who hadn't mentioned his sexuality. "I don't give a [expletive] what you think Jesus tells me and what I should and should not be doing."
"Why don't these tolerant people, these liberals, allow an opposing view?" Harvey rhetorically asks OneNewsNow.
Because giving your opponents a platform gives them power, and it's power they are after, she says.
