Strong resolve is not a quality you would associate with “modern-day Unionism”/lundyism. For 5 decades political Unionism has been on the concession escalator and has been happy there.
It is obvious the leaders of political unionism are not their own men. The are owned by “older and more sinister men” who lurk in the secret places of London and Washington.
There is no other explanation for the disastrous path taken by political unionism over the past 5 decades. Cowardice is not a sufficient explanation, neither is greed or stupidity, the only explanation that stacks up is the one which reveals that “Unionist leaders” are mere puppets on the strings of sinister spooks.
I am sure Monday will come and go without political unionism taking any bold steps, quite simply, their masters will not allow them.
So much for the “Preacherettes” and the politicians boldly taking a stand? The preacher and politician on the fence by Willie McLundy.
THE MOST DISGUSTING THING ON EARTH
From out of the millions of the earth
God often calls a man
To preach the word, and for the truth
To take a royal stand.
“Tis sad to see him shun the cross,
Nor stand in its defense
Between the fields of right and wrong:
A preacher on the fence.
Before him are the souls of men
Bound for Heaven or Hell;
An open Bible in his hand,
And yet he will not tell
All the truth that’s written there,
It haveth an offence –
The joys of Heaven, the horrors of Hell
-A preacher on the fence.
Now surely God has called the man
To battle for the right.
“Tis his to ferret out the wrong
And turn on us the light.
And yet he dare not tell the truth,
He fears the consequence,
The most disgusting thing on earth
Is a preacher on the fence.
If he should stand up for the wrong,
The right he’d not defend;
If he should stand up for the right,
The wrong he would offend.
His mouth is closed, he cannot speak
For freedom or against.
Great God deliver us from
A preacher on the fence.
But soon both sides will find him out
And brand him as a fraud,
A coward who dares not to please
The devil or his God.
Oh God, free us from fear of man,
From cowardly pretence;
Cleanse out the dross and fear of loss,
And keep us off the fence.
2 Timothy 3:3 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
