THE REMNANT NEWSPAPER: Lessons of Hanukkah for 2012

From the miracle of the Maccabees‘ victory, an eight-day celebration of Hanukkah has continued ever since

Since the November elections we have never seen so much despondency and despair. We’re hearing from so many people who say they are depressed, see no way out, and are just giving up.

And, yes, things are looking worse than ever before.

Four more years of Barack Obama. More socialist politicians elected to Congress. Election fraud. Radicals running the government. Union thuggery and violence openly allowed, but pro-family protest suppressed. “Occupy” mobs allowed to take over areas of cities. The homosexual and transgender movements being celebrated in the White House and federal agencies. Religious beliefs being suppressed and even punished in businesses, government, public schools, and the courts. The Constitution being openly ignored. The media and popular culture on an aggressive cultural jihad against Christianity. The TSA groping travelers. Taxes going up to pay for bloated government. The massive deficit. The massive bailouts. The looming inflation and economic disasters. The ObamaCare nightmare descending on us. And on and on. And the “opposition” Republican leadership with no backbone or will to fight back.

“It’s finished. America‘s done. I’m giving up.” We’re hearing that everywhere. People are feeling beaten and completely powerless.
