This is just taking the proverbial:
Biblical words such as ‘abomination’, blasphemy’ etc. are so far from almost anyone’s lexicon these days – they seem so extreme. As one who agrees there should be no blasphemy laws – he or she can face a higher court later – nor that the State and Church should be synonymous, nevertheless, I’m wondering if there’ll be total condemnation of my remarks to say that the picture above is certainly an abomination on so many levels.
My politics are those of Deplorables – for freedom of speech, jobs, the people, you know the score. I also feel that if we’d stuck to that happy medium where the values of Christianity are concerned and had not fallen completely away from that social framework, then combined with the British type of secularism, that was the least harmful mix by which to live by.
What most in the land used to be against was fanaticism and I for one give cults and street preachers a wide berth, while defending their right to do it. Where many have hardened up though is allowing a platform where a cult openly advocates murder, where the devotees openly rape, kill and do all those other things. That’s another post.
The reason something like pissJesus does not bother me but the pic above does is that the former is so openly an enemy of his Maker that one can leave the Maker to deal with it in His own way, if there is such a Maker and I couldn’t be bothered arguing that ad nauseam on a hot day.
The content in the pic though is another thing, it enters the political sphere, in the same way so many other institutions and traditions in this country have also been nobbled.
I’m not explaining myself well. Many readers at this site are so rabidly and vehemently anti-Christian but they’re honest about it – they make no bones about what they think and they say it. They are no friends of Christianity, which has actually given them the freedom to have that view and still live without torture and execution [see Otto Warmbier], but it IS their view and as it it does not harm society in the way Islam does and the SJW in that pic above does, then their freedom to say what they wish is so crucial today – the Voltaire principle should apply.
That woman above is an obvious SJW – only that sort get to those sorts of positions – and she is NOT Christian by any scriptural measure. I’d have the same view were it some more innocuous field, e.g. true West Ham supporters. Were a West Ham chief to start this c**p about rapprochement with Milwall and a joining of the two clubs, he’d be drummed out – true believers know what their thing is about and know such a man would be an enemy.
Similarly, so many NUFC supporters know Ashley is no true believer, he doesn’t care for his club. Similarly, when Wimbledon went gaga and a new, fan-based Wimbledon was formed, all sorts of biblical terms were applicable to Milton Keynes – sacrilege, blasphemy – not to mention treason.
What the extreme anti-Christians singularly fail to understand – they don’t wish to understand – is that this mix we had of Christian and secular was what held society together for so long.
Without the secular, the learned, the classical, minds are narrow and theocracy threatens … and we’ve seen the result of that. But equally, if you fall away too far, as that woman in the pic has, backed by the pointy-hatters, then your society is headed down, down, down. Many of you won’t accept that but sorry – it’s so.
It’s not up to readers of this blog to reverse that, especially if they don’t care, but it’s certainly up to those within the church to take immediate action on that person and on the forces behind her, for those forces are the same ones dirtying everything in politics too.
