The Rainbow Boot: Queer As Volk?
According to Godwin’s Law, when either Hitler or Nazis come up in a debate, the end of sane discussion is at hand. Oh well.
The more this observer sees of the crazy off-the-scale Left in church or society, the more it reminds me of the mindset and techniques of totalitarianism. Take the creeping assault on religious freedom in Canada and England, in the name of ‘ diversity’ or tolerance. Freedom of speech threatened without a second thought; religious freedom increasingly fenced in, so that morally traditional religious freedoms exist at the beck-and call of governments, tribunals, and the whim of the pertetually discontented. Even lives threatened. Such is the price of yet another heaven on earth.
Thinking All Fascistical
Now, if I were a fascist, and some fascistical event or development took place, I’d keep quiet, or perhaps rejoice . If I were a freedom-loving person, I’d simply have to protest. So we have pro same-sex militants Richard Kirker in England, or Louie Crew in the United States. When the religious or other freedoms of people they disagree with are threatened or curtailed, should they not speak out clearly against such infringement? Well yes, IF they were consistently freedom-loving people.
To be fair, perhaps they failed to notice the inconsistency, or looked the other way. Perhaps they were busy with other things. Perhaps the interior political culture of the same-sex movement only allows for only one protected class of victim and rights to be fought for. Perhaps re-education camps are very IN this season.
In any case, as you read through our pages, and see how the activists and their allies get things done, it smells like right-denying, democracy-crushing, bend the rules, the ends justify any and all means some-are-more-equal-than-others totalitarianism. Narcissism bent on revenge, perhaps?
Such movements appear parasitic and illogical by nature; abusing freedom, and denying it to others; poisoning democracy, yet depending on it; claiming God’s own blessing while denying His will and Word; proclaiming itself a liberation, and yet willing to look the other way at the injury and limiting of fellow Christians, human beings, and people made in the image of God.
Others Have Noticed, Too
The CaNN News Editor is not the first one to notice bullying fascistic and mind-controlling tendencies in the same-sex movement. In Canada, John McKeller, the President of Homosexuals Opposed to Pride Extremism (HOPE) spoke out on the matter in 2003. Provocative gay writer Camille Paglia has spoken often of gay activism as narrow, elitist, and fascist– even of a “gay Stalinism“, in her 2002 article ‘The Gay Inquisition‘.
Hissy-fits and whitewash just will not do.
This is a reminder to Christians that the pastoral task of befriending and loving those with same-sex addiction also requires prayer and wisdom for the renewing of their minds, and in some cases the setting aside of the totalitarian impulse.
It is also a judgement on the liberal churches for allowing such anti-human and anti-Christian totalitarian ideology to enter the church, and to be labelled as authentically Christian– and to label faithful and thoughtful opponents of the innovations as bigots and 2nd-rate Christians.
If conservative Anglicanism espoused the methods and mindset of the totalitarian Left, I’d drop it like a hot potato. Will the mad Left do the same?
