Strident (adj) – being sharply insistent on being heard
Things have got to change my friends. You’ve got to get mad. You’ve got to say, “I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!” — Howard Beale (Peter Finch) from the movie “Network.”
I’ve got to be honest, in today’s political and religious climate, I know exactly how Howard felt. Our government has lost sight of the fact that they work for us, not the other way around. Our “leaders” spend money they don’t have, to pay for socialist programs we don’t need and can’t afford, while practicing a “progressive” liberalism that takes America further away from her constitutional foundation.
Our religious leaders are compromising the true Gospel for a watered-down, psycho-babble message that is more concerned with how you “feel” than whether you are going to heaven or not. As A. W. Tozer puts it, “Religion today is not transforming people; rather it is being transformed by the people. It is not raising the moral level of society; it is descending to society’s own level, and congratulating itself that it has scored a victory because society is smilingly accepting its surrender.”
And the most frustrating part? It seems like no one is listening, or at the very least, like they don’t care. The voice of reason has been replaced with the voice of political correctness.
Well, at the Strident Conservative we aren’t going to put up with it anymore. We are going to insist that our voices be heard, regardless of whether it’s politically correct or not. We will call the left and the right on their hypocrisy, and we will do it with the “sharp insistence” necessary to make our voices heard.
We are a place where you might not like what you hear, but you’ll know exactly where we stand. We aren’t afraid to step on some toes, and we will use our voice to work tirelessly to see our country return to the days of freedom from government oppression, to the liberty envisioned by our fore fathers. We will hold our religious leaders accountable for preaching a false “feel good” gospel and demand a return to preaching Jesus Christ, and Him crucified (I Cor. 2:2).
I hope you will join us.
