Why is Christ in the Left's crosshairs?

DaTechGuy outdoes himself here:

Christianity is everything the left despises:

It teaches the unity of men, when the power of the left comes from dividing by race or color or creed.
It acknowledges God as the source of our freedom and free will, rather than the state or another giving such freedom.
It restrains appetites, greed (thou shalt not covet), lust ( thou shalt not commit adultery), spin (though shalt not bear false witness) and does so by simple rules, rather than letting one do what they want, when you want.
It forgives and accepts anyone, on the condition that said person acknowledges and repents of their sins or at the very least commits to fight the temptation to them.
It gives the absolute freedom to walk away from it, while giving you until the very last second of your life to re-consider before actual judgement is passed.
And worst of all, to those who embrace it the strongest it gives courage, the courage to stand against any slander, any pressure and even die for the sake of Christ rather than sin.
RTWT, it's long but many good points are made. 

The most important thing to understand is why Christianity is under attack.  The human race has a need to worship something greater than themselves.  This is our instinctive pull toward God.  When we turn from God, that need is still there.  Some turn to hero worship of athletes or entertainers.  Some worship the person they're dating(or want to date), which ultimately destroys the relationship, because no one can live up to being put on a pedestal in an interpersonal setting. 

And far too many end up worshipping a leader.  The Man With The Plan, who's going to fulfill their every want and need, and despense perfect justice, and take care of them forever and ever...if they only just have faith.  This is why the Left must attack Christianity:  They know that as far as worship is concerned, there can be only One, and they want that One to be their guy, not the True God. 

There's a reason that the very first Commandment is, "I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt have no other gods before Me."  Because when we turn to the worship of false gods, we eventually discover that it can only end in death, destruction, misery and suffering.  How many times have we been taught the same lesson throughout history?  Hitler and Stalin and Pol Pot and Mao and on and on and on, down through the ages.  A given leader may, or may not, be intelligent, worthy of respect and a good thing for a country, but reagardless, he is still just a man, imperfect and prone to temptation.  Seeing him as anything else is a grave mistake, and the consequences will be dire.  Looks like we're due for yet another lesson.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy upon us.
