Deep in the Black Heart of Texas :: By Terry James

No other state in this once indivisible union more firmly represented that unity than did the state of Texas. The battle cry of those fighting for the nation’s freedom from enslavement was often “Remember the Alamo!” –Thus, while young men gave their very lives to preserve all that was good about America.

The song’s title, “Deep in the Heart of Texas,” conjured thoughts of indissoluble patriotism. Its theme embraced the very essence of innocence and determination to advance across the continent under the energy generated by the American spirit.

Recently however, that state, perhaps among the very most once devoted to God and country, has been infiltrated by another spirit.

Those advocating for open borders, who see America and its wealth as belonging to the entire world, seem to have taken over. Illegal aliens coming through the southern border have significantly made a detrimental impact upon the Lone Star state. The immigration crisis, as we know, has dominated the political landscape.

One political party in particular has sought, through flaunting their disdain for immigration laws, to turn Texas into a state solidly in their political camp. Dallas/Ft. Worth has, in effect, become solidly Democrat. The large population centers of Texas –like others in large cities throughout the U.S. vote almost exclusively progressive (liberal). The heart of this great state has turned increasingly dark. Thus, the title of this commentary Deep in the Black Heart of Texas.

The term “black” here is not a racial pejorative. My meaning is totally a matter of moral condemnation. The progressive/liberal ideology has moved America farther from God’s prescription for a morally upright culture and society. The illegal immigration, intended by the progressive ideology to turn Texas from a “red” state to a “blue” state is why the heart of Texas looks to be turning black.

That godless ideology is demonstratively against all things, until recent years, considered moral, common sense, American values. That spiritually dark view of how culture and society should comport has turned morality upside down. The progressive/liberal influence, especially in the highest echelons of government, education, and media, have brought our nation into having what the Apostle Paul termed a reprobate mind (Romans 1: 28).   

Texas has at its heart –its capital, a black, festering immorality that rivals the godlessness of any of the east and west coast states. It is a Mecca of the most voracious such sort of political ideology. Austin harbors evil that threatens to infect all of Texas, in pushing it toward presidential electoral votes that will upset the national, political equilibrium.

Lest those who peruse this commentary think I’m way off base with the language used to portray the Texas state capital and what goes on there, I offer the following news excerpt.

AUSTIN, Texas, October 31, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Despite heavy turnout from parents opposed to the plan, the Austin Independent School District voted Tuesday to approve a sex education curriculum that calls for teaching children as early as third grade how to engage in sodomy and put on condoms, that gender is “non-binary,” and more.

As detailed by Texas Values, the curriculum discourages gender-specific language like “mother” and “father” because it “can limit [children’s] understanding of gender into binaries,” encourages children to attend LGBT “pride” rallies and explore other ways to become LGBT “allies,” and proposes various role-play scenarios for children to act out in class, including lesbians deciding when to engage in oral sex and how to handle the aftermath of a drunken sexual encounter.

I have left out the most salacious of the descriptions about things involving these young children. But be assured, the report became much more graphic.

Parents and others protested the school district using the curriculum.

“Who gave you the right, Austin ISD?” The father of a fifth-grade student asked. “You have overstepped,” he added.

Another parent declared the curriculum an “attack on Christianity and family and on parental rights.”

A number of citizens concerned about the curriculum read specific details from the hellish course of study Gary Moore, one resident, called the sexual role-play activities a “dream scenario for pedophiles.”

While the parents and concerned citizens protested their children being subjected to the wickedness, LGBTQ counter protesters threatened physical harm to those against the curriculum and used screaming and noisemakers to try to drown out the anti-curriculum protesters. 

Deep in the Black Heart of Texas, people who still hold to God as the foundation of righteousness must know what Lot felt like in the days just before fire and brimstone fell upon that incorrigibly wicked city.
