Anti-Principles Principle

There is a spiritual war waging right now, more blatant than ever, but is being played out in our society by attacking values and principles.

Rights have to exist in practice — not just on paper,” Clinton argued. “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”

Bank of America, not happy enough to have your money, is pushing the same anti-principles principle:
"Love Has No Labels successfully launched in 2015 encouraging audiences to examine their implicit biases—ones most people don’t realize they have—in order to promote acceptance of all people. We signed on to this campaign to demonstrate a commitment to fostering inclusivity for employees. We look forward to integrating Love Has No Labels into several of our upcoming employee and community events in 2016, starting with Pride Month in June." This is headed up by BofA's "Chief Diversity and Inclusion officer."

That they have such a useless and made up position with nothing but cultural realigning as it's objective is telling. That BofA also echoes Hillary's demand for changing values in order to get a behavior (sin) accepted , so blatantly is wrong. After all, they don't demand this of Muslims, do they? They don't demand this of themselves, do they (the reaction to Trump winning the presidential election is telling)? The only ones demanded to compromise are those with a different set of values.

Moreover, the God of Scripture, who is the God of Truth, has defined what love is and is not. After all, He is so characterized by true love, that His the God of love. He says:

1Cor. 13: 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

2Thes. 2: 10 and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.

Heb 5:14  But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice  to distinguish  good from evil. 

1Jo 1:6  If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.7  But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 

1Jo 2:4  Whoever says "I know him" but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him,

Mar 7:20  And he said, "What comes out of a person is what defiles him. 21  For from within, out
of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, 22 
coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness.23 All these evil things
come from within, and they defile a person."

Isa 45:19  I did not speak in secret, in a land of darkness; I did not say to the offspring of Jacob,
'Seek me in vain.' I the LORD speak the truth; I declare what is right.

Joh 8:31  So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, "If you abide in my word, you are
truly my disciples, 32  and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

1Jo 2:21  I write to you, not because you do not know the truth, but because you know it , and
because no lie is of the truth

Then there is the "Frankenstein" commercial by Apple pushing "accept everyone who's not like you":

"The neck bolts as sockets for Christmas lights are just one of the strangely magical elements here. In fact, the whole setup is discordant—this isn't even Frankenstein's holiday—but that actually helps to build the sense of "otherness" that the spot is trying, at the end, to dispel.
It's beautifully shot, and the details are great—like the framed photo of Mary Shelley in Frankie's home. And the end line, "Open your heart to everyone," will be read far and wide as a plea for acceptance in a political climate where the core of that message is in dispute."
Again, where's the open heart speach to Muslims? To Hillary Clinton supporters? To the mainstream media? Ah yes, only the "deplorables" (that is, those who have an opposite worldview than the liberals) are called to compromise (presuming quite a lot about the hearts, values, and motives (not to mention lie about) of said deplorables). Who after all, has been rioting for a year now? Not law-abiding, hard working people like biblical Christians (who ,by the way, call upon Scripture's command to obey our government (unless it tells us to sin against God), to honor and pray for our leaders, and to work for an honest day's wage in order to take care of one's own family, and to have integrity in one's life).
Then there's Amazon's preaching:

"The ad features a priest and imam having a pleasant conversation over tea. As the the imam prepares to leave, both men remark at their sore knees, share a hug, and part ways. Afterward, they both take out their smartphones and buy the other knee braces through Amazon Prime.Amazon finds common ground between a priest and imam.
Amazon this week released an ad that appears to be a response to the 2016 presidential campaign.
While the ad is designed to promote the company’s Amazon Prime membership, its theme suggest it’s trying to achieve far more than additional Prime memberships. The ad features a priest and imam having a pleasant conversation over tea. As the the imam prepares to leave, both men remark at their sore knees, share a hug, and part ways. Afterward, they both take out their smartphones and buy the other knee braces through Amazon Prime. The ad ends with both the priest and the imam kneeling to pray while wearing the knee braces they received from the other via Amazon Prime."
This after the Orlanda jihad of a homosexual night club. This after countless jihads both foreign and domestic. What is ironic is that Islam can't nor is willing to coexist with the West, much less any non-Muslim religion. CAIR (and unidicted co-conspirator with terrorists), is working to get ignoramuses in the US and the West to think Islam is just a harmless religion like Roman Catholicism, which is a downright lie. Anyone who has read the quran, the hadith, and the history of Muhammad (this is a good short article on these things), as well as have been on top of the constant jihads worldwide, knows that this political religion is one of slaughter, not of peace. To be sure, both Roman Catholics and Muslims do indeed bow and worship the same god--the one who temporarily is at work in this world, that is, the devil--but not the true, Triune God of Scripture.

These blatant pushes for acceptance are ironic and really quite hypocritical because it's the same liberals who don't accept those with a diametrically opposing worldview, those who voted for Trump or Bush, those who are against abortion, those who are against Islam, and those who believe and obey the Bible openly and consistently. Such liberals are not just in our society at large but are part of American Evangelicalism specifically. While their hostility is merely a tad more veiled, it is there nonetheless. These are the liberals who constantly tell us to stop pushing our principles and beliefs and the Bible down their throats, yet they think they're entitled to do it themselves.
