Code Pink's Mental and Spiritual Disorders

Rabidly leftists groups like "Code Pink" have two problems. Their radically liberal agenda unequivocally demonstrates that they must suffer from either mental disorder, spiritual disorder, or both.

Their latest craziness was on display during another one of their loonie protests:

Code Pink Protesters Try Witchcraft at Anti-Marine Rallies

Lots of bloggers have covered this protest. Many comments, such as these over at Digg have been shared.

But there is more to it than meets the eye.

The following post includes my original comment over at Digg.

When I wrote my comment at Digg, the following quote was included in a previous comment:

"The lovely ladies from Code Pink are at times cheerful and at other times bitterly shrill."

Sounds like bi-polar (which used to be called the less PC disorder of "manic-depressive.") disorder to me. Michael Savage got it right when he titled one of his books after the Code Pinko types: "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder."

These women seriously need mental health examinations.
Important add-on: [Please note: I am not claiming that such a disorder does not genuinely exist. In fact, I know (and have known) several people whose suffering with such a disorder is real. Fortunately many have obtained medication to treat it. Please do not misconstrue that this post is mocking those who have suffered (or are suffering) from such a disorder. That is not my intent. However, as Savage's book indicates, sometimes the disorder is more behaviorally-oriented rather than genuinely a brain dysfunction.]

However, there is more to it than that. If these women do not genuinely suffer from bi-polar disorder, but just are guilty of displaying unreasonable behavior, then that fact reveals something even worse - a spiritual disorder.

Resorting to witchcraft often reveals a terribly severe spiritual problem. Take note of a sorcerer named Simon whose error in witchcraft led him into thinking he could buy the power of the Holy Spirit in the Bible:

Act 8:9 A man named Simon had been a sorcerer there for many years, claiming to be someone great.

Act 8:10 The Samaritan people, from the least to the greatest, often spoke of him as "the Great One-the Power of God."

Act 8:11 He was very influential because of the magic he performed.

Act 8:12 But now the people believed Philip's message of Good News concerning the Kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ. As a result, many men and women were baptized.

Act 8:13 Then Simon himself believed and was baptized. He began following Philip wherever he went, and he was amazed by the great miracles and signs Philip performed.

Act 8:14 When the apostles back in Jerusalem heard that the people of Samaria had accepted God's message, they sent Peter and John there.

Act 8:15 As soon as they arrived, they prayed for these new Christians to receive the Holy Spirit.

Act 8:16 The Holy Spirit had not yet come upon any of them, for they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

Act 8:17 Then Peter and John laid their hands upon these believers, and they received the Holy Spirit.

Act 8:18 When Simon saw that the Holy Spirit was given when the apostles placed their hands upon people's heads, he offered money to buy this power.

Act 8:19 "Let me have this power, too," he exclaimed, "so that when I lay my hands on people, they will receive the Holy Spirit!"

Act 8:20 But Peter replied, "May your money perish with you for thinking God's gift can be bought!

Act 8:21 You can have no part in this, for your heart is not right before God.

Act 8:22 Turn from your wickedness and pray to the Lord. Perhaps he will forgive your evil thoughts,

Act 8:23 for I can see that you are full of bitterness and held captive by sin."

(NLT version - Blue Letter Bible)

The Code Pink women display "bitterness" and reveal that they are "held captive by sin."

God's Word has additional advice for them:

See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world rather than on Christ. Colossians 2:8

The eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth to show Himself strong to those whose hearts are fully committed to Him.
2 Chronicles 16:9

Yes, your title says it all. I would love to hear their reasoning and evidence for believing that their witchcraft worldview is true.

The "women" of Code Pink are laughable. Simply deranged America-haters.

That is all.
