I don’t know why no one seems to perceive that God is chastising our whole Western civilization–chastising us in the kind of destructive idiots He raises up to be rulers over us, and in the increasingly vain and empty-headed exercise which we still call “higher education.”
At Carlton University, they’ve taken the scales out of the gym because, in the words of one student, “Scales are very triggering” ( https://townhall.com/columnists/michaelbrown/2017/03/14/what-this-campus-has-done-is-beyond-stupid-n2298659 ). And in the words of the university administration, “Being fixated on weight does not have any positive affect [note the misspelling: has Joe Collidge been promoted?] on your health.”
Wanting to get in on the act, Bucknell University has taken away the mirrors, because mirrors are bad for “body positivity.” And to think I’ve lived this long, only today to hear of “body positivity.” Where has this concept been all my life?
Yo, Western world, wakey-wakey! God is mad at us. Does anybody really, truly think it’s a good idea to turn millions of young people into totally dysfunctional wastes of space?
You know what scares me the most? The strong suspicion that we are still a long, long way from even realizing that we’re being chastised for our sins, let alone from actually repenting and turning away from them, turning back to God. The fear that the fun has only just started: we’ve only seen the warmup tosses–wait’ll we get the high hummer right between the eyes.
Remember us, O God, who have been praying for our country, that the people would come back to their senses. Father in Heaven, for Jesus’ sake have mercy on us, and bring us back to sanity–before the full bill comes due. Amen.
