It’s quite obvious that Christians have no sway on the Democrat Party. The feigned shock of Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden exemplifies just how little this political machine cares for the woke Evangelical charlatans. The classic Christian response from an institutional level has been to create lofty organizations like the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. However the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission run by the left of center Russell Moore is an overinflated blog and nothing else.
In response to this ineffectiveness, Jerry Falwell Jr and Charlie Kirk founded the Falkirk Center at Liberty University. The problem with this organization is similar. It is little more than a blog or think tank. At a foundational level, it is named after two clowns. Neither Jerry Falwell Jr nor Charlie Kirk are socially conservative. Turning Point USA promotes homosexuality and transgenderism, which has spawned a counter movement known as the Groypers helmed by Gen Z tradcon Catholics who have given rise to antiemetic and racist beliefs.
However the grievances of the Groypers cannot be dismissed. Conservatives in America should care more about conserving America’s culture than Israel’s culture. Conservatives need to recognize that by promoting transgenderism, they are terraforming the culture to one that will believe any false narrative that, ultimately, Satan wants to promote on our society. Think about it, if we can be convinced that a man can become a woman, or even bullied into adhering to the notion, what narrative from hell can our society rebuff.
Can we really convince the culture that believes in transgenderism that socialism is both morally wrong and disastrous? If the media can convince the culture at large that a man in a dress is actually a woman, what can’t that same media convince of a culture. They convinced a culture that COVID-19 was doomsday.
In Star Trek TNG, Captain Jean-Luc Picard is captured by the Cardassians in “Chain of Command.” During the torture, four lights are shined in his face. He is asked how many lights there are. He answers four. The Cardassians torture him in order to get him to declare that there are five lights instead of four. Picard is ultimately rescued just before he was about to give in to the lie.
Unfortunately, our society, most individuals, do not have near as much regard for absolute truth. Many will simply say there are five lights upon polite request. But the Cultural Marxists are not asking politely.
If we do not stand for absolute truth, the culture will be terraformed beyond our capabilities to engage the system.
The battle of within the Republican Party is whether to stand for absolute truth or be ten years behind the Democrat Party on every issue. Donald Trump certainly straddled the fence on this issue and attracted both sides to vote for him. But for Christians and conservatives, there is no choice. We must stand for absolute truth. Should the ten years behind faction become the base of the Republican Party, the party will cease to be an effective tool for Christians. It’s worth noting that just because Christians are not effectively using the Republican Party, does not mean it’s not a tool that can be wielded successfully.
Politically, Christians leaders have failed to exercise the leverage that we have over the Republican Party. However, the millions of Evangelicals who voted for Trump in 2016 but stayed home when left of center, pro-abortion, Republicans John McCain and Mitt Romney ran for President wielded their leverage considerably. The organizations need to catch up with the grassroots.
The Republican Party cannot win without Christians. Therefore Christians need to whip the Republican Party into being the party of absolute truth. In organizing politically, Christians need to leverage themselves as the critical voting block for Republicans. Existing Christian political organizations are failing in this regard, which is why we need to create new ones that give no legitimacy to the Democrats and are unafraid to sack Republicans.
