The "Higher Powers" of the Culture of Death

Howard Dean let it slip. In his recent promise to "use" Terri Schindler-Schiavo against Republicans in 2006 and 2008, Democratic National Committee chairman Dean told us who he and, by extension, the liberal democratic party worships. It isn't the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Dean said:

"The issue is: Are we going to live in a theocracy where the highest powers tell us what to do? Or are we going to be allowed to consult our own high powers when we make very difficult decisions?'" [emphasis added]

Lets analyze what he said there. According to Dean's words he would rather "consult our own high powers" than have "the highest powers" tell us what to do.

Who are these powers he is talking about?

First, since he uses the word theocracy to describe the highest powers he must be referring to ALMIGHTY GOD, the God of the Jews and Christians, the one who said his name is "I AM THAT I AM".

Next, "our own high powers" is vague which is not surprising given the left's love of moral and philosophical relativism. An interesting word in Dean's statement is the word consult. When used with the phrase: "our own high powers," it conjures up images of psychics, necromancers, fortune tellers and demons. I immediately thought of the witch of Endor which King Saul consulted. That consultation resulted in Saul's violent death the very next day. Another interpretation of "our own high powers" could refer to one's own ego or even one's own intelligence. After all, man is the measure of all things isn't he? At least the godless left seems to think so.

Put this together and reparse what Howard Dean was actually saying. Mr. Dean does not want to take any orders from the highest power - God Almighty. Mr. Dean, and those he represents, prefer to rely on human ego, human understanding, spirits of the dead, astrologers, witches, the reading of chicken intestines, tea leaves or anything else which massages their own depravity. Anything at all except the One True God. It is no wonder that the left has embraced the culture of death.
