Our Motto Now?...”Sez Who?”

"Everything I have said and done in these last years is relativism by intuition...If relativism signifies contempt for fixed categories and men who claim to be the bearers of an objective, immortal truth...then there is nothing more relativistic than fascistic attitudes and activity...From the fact that all ideologies are of equal value, that all ideologies are mere fictions, the modern relativist infers that everybody has the right to create for himself his own ideology and to attempt to enforce it with all the energy of which he is capable."
—Benito Mussolini


"Without the ultimate warrant of Divine Revelation, all claims to authority are vulnerable to the 'Grand Sez Who'."
—Arthur Leff


"...the Humanist has both feet firmly planted in mid-air."
—Francis Schaeffer



Our Motto Now?...”Sez Who?”


Our common ground is shifting sand,
Those plumb lines are no more…
Man’s true delight is ‘ might makes right’…
While Chaos shoots and scores!

True truth is fading in the fog
Of relativities…
It’s only fair…Feet in mid-air…
Toss-up moralities.

God’s Word is mocked…declared absurd,
And from it we’re unbound…
“Enlightened Man” now takes his stand…
Where “up” turns into “down”.

Subjectivism rules the roost,
Desire enflames and reigns.
The way we feel is now what’s real,
While Virtues are disdained.

The dark descends, the light grows dim
Our motto now?..... “Sez Who?”
“Why not?” we say…then turn away…,
To sip the devil’s brew.




“This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature and despise authority…Bold and arrogant, ….[T]hey are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish.”
—2Peter 2: 10…12

“God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals [in their sinful nature]; the same fate awaits them both.”
—Ecclesiastes 3: 18


“…western culture has lost the central metaphysical self-image that gives it purpose and a moral compass. Its inhabitants sink into emotivism, narcissism and a desiccating individualism. Morality becomes wholly subjective and the virtues, once the mortar of the social order, morph into undisciplined competing passions.”
—Vigen Guroian
