Matthew McConaughey Schools the Liberal Elite With an “Attitude of Gratitude”

Last Sunday Night, Matthew McConaughey won the coveted Academy Award for Best Actor, for his portrayal of Ron Woodroof in the film “Dallas Buyer’s Club”.

However, as memorable a moment as that was for the accomplished American Actor, what he did next endeared him to all of us average Americans out here in “Flyover Country” and left “the smartest people in the room” out there on the Left Coast and in the “Center of Civilization”, the Liberal Northeast, scratching their heads in bewilderment.

Upon accepting the award, McConaughey said,

First off, I want to thank God, ’cause that’s who I look up to. He’s graced my life with opportunities that I know is not of my hand or any other human hand. He has shown me that it’s a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates. In the words of the late Charlie Lawton who said ‘when you got God, you got a friend and that friend is you.

What is so fascinating about this, was the reaction from Liberals.

You could have heard crickets in that theater as he was thanking the One who created him.

To those of you who read my Blog faithfully, by now, I’m probably sounding like a broken record, but there is a cultural divide in this nation.

If you look in electoral map, you know one of those maps that device the country into red and blue states and shows exactly what area of the country voted for whom, you will notice that this cultural divide parallels the difference between the red and blue areas. The area which the Liberals call “Flyover Country”, and which I refer to as the Heartland of America, is represented on these maps as a vast sea of red, with maybe a few blue areas here and there. You know…areas like Memphis, Tennessee, Atlanta, Georgia, or Austin, Texas, which are Democratic strongholds and hold most of the Liberal population of their state.

So, what am I trying to say? Am I trying to say that Liberals do not know who God is?

Not at all. Liberals know who God is, because with a 78% Christian Population in America, while a Liberal might not have been raised in a Christian Family, they have relatives who are or they have friends and acquaintances who are believers.

In many cases, Liberals put God in a box and bring Him out when it is to their advantage. For example, when they are at a wedding or a funeral. Or, in the case of our present president, when they’re speaking to a large group of people and attempting to act as if they are a devout Christian

The Liberal Elite simply feel that God is not “cool enough” to be a part of their culture. You see, the Lord “slows their roll”.

While God gives us unconditional love and forgive us our sins, he expects us to live within the guidelines, which are established in His Holy Word. And, without ambivalent morality and situational ethics, today’s liberals and their political leaders would be forced to take responsibility for their own actions. And, screenwriters in Hollywood would actually be forced to produce quality scripts. So, instead of a show about gangs and drugs, they would have to write a movie like “Mr Smith goes to Washington”.

Oh, the humanity.

So…what was it that Matthew McConaughey said that was so wrong in the eyes of the liberal elite?

He simply said that the wonderful opportunities that he had received in his life were not of his own making. He told those pompous jackwagons that God is the Giver of all good things.

McConaughey also said that gratitude is reciprocal. In other words, if you remain humble and grateful to God for all the things that He has given you, then He will continue to bless your life and make a way for you, when there is no other way.

I know from my own life, that I would not be here today if not for His Unfailing Grace.

And, if those who consider themselves the smartest people in the room could just understand that simple fact, then we would not see any more senseless deaths like those of Heath Ledger and Philip Seymour Hoffman.

And, babies would not be taken from their mothers wombs before their birth.

Yes, I am a dreamer. I see things as they are and dream of what they could be.

I wish that all Americans knew the Triune God… the God of Our Fathers, who gave us the Sacred Land.

Then, the Hollywood Liberal Elite and the Liberals on the East Coast, including the Halls of Power in Washington DC, would know what we know here in the Heartland of America:

When you have God, you have everything you need.

God is good. All the time.

Until He Comes,


One thought on “Matthew McConaughey Schools the Liberal Elite With an “Attitude of Gratitude”

  1. The god of the liberal is a god of no consequences. Who allows them to do and say and think and be who and what they want, however, whenever they want. He’s the Stay-Puff Marshmallow Man, the Pillsbury Dough Boy who is soft and squishy and is just going to take everyone to Heaven in the end. He’s a do nothing, see nothing, say nothing god and that’s the way they like him…or her. Just was Christ was rejected by the Scribes and Pharisees of His time, the liberals reject God for the very same reasons…He just doesn’t fit the mold and He cramps their style. It’s as if they are exerting a lot of effort trying to convince God how wrong He is and how the “majority” just don’t think that way so HE must conform…not them. (If I may put in a shameless plug I have begun my own blog on WordPress called “Confronting Galatians” and I talk about much of this.) So when I hear stats like “78% Christian population” my first response is “which Christ are we talking about?”
