One of my readers, responding to the story about the idiot college students mistaking a priest for a Klansman, has asked, “What’s next?”
I am not happy about being able to answer that.
In Japan, a country caught in a demographic death spiral because people just aren’t having babies anymore, entrepreneurs have brought to market a Virtual Reality Sex Suit, a full-body thingamajig that lets you enjoy a pitiful form of “sex” without a partner ( https://www.rt.com/viral/338662-virtual-reality-sex-suit/ ). For a mere $400, you can indulge in what I think our British friends would call high-tech wanking.
Why do I even mention something as disgusting as this?
Because it shows our modern, global, humanist civilization as having firmly placed itself on the road to extinction, and is a grim reminder that we need to pray as we’ve never prayed before–pray for repentance, for a return to sanity, for God to give us the courage to stand in front of this tidal wave and cry, “Enough!”
One serious note, before I lapse into more cat videos or anything like that.
People wonder why I call the Democrats the Sin Party. Obviously, their sponsorship of abortion, sexual anarchy, the breaking of our immigration laws, etc., eminently qualifies them for that title.
But among their worst sins is that of race-baiting: sowing discord and envy, playing with violence like a child with his father’s loaded gun, seeking to rule by dividing the country, and encouraging people to hate each other without cause. And no, I don’t think it’s cause for hatred if you can say, “My ancestors, a hundred and fifty years ago, were slaves but yours weren’t”–well, mine were luxuriating in their career paths as German peasants, although it wouldn’t matter if they’d been royalty.
To teach people that whatever is wrong in their lives is because of others’ enjoyment of some undefined “White Privilege,” to hate those who supposedly have this privilege, and to look to the government to avenge them against persons who never did them any harm–this is abominable. It’s also dangerous: if these passions are stoked until they boil over into violence, it could bring down our republic.
God’s judgment is on America for her sins. We don’t need to be making up and indulging new ones every day. We need to pray, repent, and stop this evil foolishness before a lot of people get hurt.
To hate one another because some sleazy politicians tell us that we ought to hate is shameful. And it is sin not only to those who preach it, but to those who choose to listen.
