Marching For A Good Cause??

According the news the marches over the weekend were a record breaking demonstration of people's opposition to President Trump and all he stands for.  The NPR hosts have been positively giddy with their enthusiasm for the huge crowds...

Presumably all of the marchers believe that they are on the side of what is good!!

It is interesting that so many people could be so enthusiastic over issues of good and evil when one of the things they evidently stand for is the rejection of absolute standards of right and wrong. How does that work?

What do they stand for?  They are definitely pro-abortion, having rejected pro-life groups from participating.

It seems to me that they are rebelling against everything that relates to our historic constitutional democracy and traditional morality.  They have grown so used to liberal progressivism steamrolling over everyone who disagrees that they cannot stand the fact their candidate lost the election. They are now ready for revolution. They reject the legitimacy of the elected government and will protest until they get their own way.

Maybe.

But their avowed belief in absolute freedom applies only to their own beliefs and behaviors. Anyone who disagrees is a hater - and they hate haters.  So while they rally for absolute freedom, they roll over everyone else's freedom with a sadistic glee.  They cannot see how their behavior and attitudes match historical movements that they would find abhorrent.

What do they claim for their moral authority?  Reason? Law? Consensus?  Anything other than God.
(Isaiah 5:20–23 ESV) 20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and shrewd in their own sight!22 Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine, and valiant men in mixing strong drink,23 who acquit the guilty for a bribe, and deprive the innocent of his right!
