Last week, world-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking died. He lived to the age of 76 with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or ALS, which doesn’t happen often. Hawking had a brilliant scientific mind and spent his life trying to discover how the universe began.
Hawking was an avowed atheist. After he died, a Texas State Republican lawmaker, Briscoe Cain, tweeted “Stephen Hawking now knows how the universe was actually made. My condolences to his family.” The left began to attack.
One publication attacked Cain and called him a troll, another said Cain took jabs. Leftists have taken a position of superiority. Some have told Cain that he needs to step down from his post, even though he said nothing derogatory or disrespectful. He simply spoke what he saw as the truth.
Pastor Billy Graham was the subject of vile attacks when he died a few weeks ago, getting called a “POS.” Laura Duca of Teen Vogue wrote, “have fun in hell, b****.” President Obama sent out a tweet of condolence speaking kind words about Graham and was attacked by liberals. The left will turn on their own if it means demeaning someone who doesn’t believe the same thing. Even The Washington Post couldn’t help themselves soon after Graham died by bashing his family for some of their so-called poor decisions and casting them off as Graham’s fault.
The leftist likes to say they are tolerant. But the opposite is true. The left also showed how hypocritical they were when they attacked Billy Graham. Now, they are attacking Cain for doing much less. Leftism doesn’t do anything to improve others around them. By nature, leftists attack others “insufficiencies” as they see fit and never work on improving their internal issues.
The Biggest Argument
When a non-believer tells a Christian they don’t agree with them, the Christian doesn’t launch into personal attacks. On the flipside, when a Christian says they don’t agree with a non-believer, the radical left will often declare their stance bigoted.
Billy Graham did more for individuals by preaching the gospel of Christ, bringing real positive change. Hawking worked in an arena that has often tried to disprove the existence of God. Billy Graham brought real change on a moral and spiritual level. While Hawking’s contributions to the world of science are immeasurable, his work was not concerned with the real mysteries of life, the soul and our real place in the universe.
Briscoe Cain was just expressing his belief that we have a maker and that when we pass, we will have our questions answered. As of today, it is not yet immoral nor illegal to express your opinion on the workings of the universe and life as we know it… Both Hawking and Cain would agree.
