‘Religious Overtones’

Posted on | January 31, 2017 | 2 Comments

“‘Ye shall be as gods’ (Genesis 3:5) was the false promise of Satan’s original lie, and the sinful idea that human beings can defy God, living according to our own beliefs without respect to God’s law, has been a cause of violence and evil in the world ever since.”
Robert Stacy McCain, April 1, 2016

My friend The Political Hat occasionally posts links to my stuff over at Reddit, and the other day he posted my “Feminism Is a Hate Movement” to the Men’s Rights subreddit, where the first comment was, “On the one hand, he’s right about Donna Hylton… on the other hand, what the hell is with the religious overtones?” Apparently, there aren’t many Christians on Reddit, and I have noticed that Men’s Rights activists (MRAs) tend toward secularism, if not indeed toward Dawkins-style “New Atheism.”

Ideas Have Consequences, and it may be that MRA atheism is a non-random factor in their antagonism toward women. Let me point out that I do not consider opposing feminism (i.e., a crypto-Marxist ideology) to be “anti-woman,” nor do I consider it “misogyny” to criticize individual feminists (i.e., the activists who promote this anti-male ideology).

As I’ve explained before, I’m not an MRA, because I don’t believe in the collectivist social-justice concept of group “rights.” Our civilization is breaking down specifically because of this “Us-versus-Them” identity-politics mentality that the Democrat Party encourages. Friends of liberty cannot “win” by playing the game according to the Left’s rulebook. What is necessary, I believe, is to force the Left to defend the premises of their arguments, e.g., their assumption that “equality” is either desirable or possible. (Hayek addressed this in The Mirage of Social Justice.)

Why “religious overtones” in criticizing feminism? Well, feminism’s fanatical support for abortion means that they automatically alienate Catholics, along with all others who share a religious respect for human life. What part of “Thou shalt not kill” do I need to explain here? And feminists also generally advocate sexual immorality, further offending the religious faithful. Therefore, as an opponent of feminism, you will find some of your strongest supporters among Bible-believing women. Anyone would be a fool to attempt fighting feminism without “religious overtones.” Why forsake such a powerful weapon? You do not have to preach a sermon in every argument, but the basic wrongness of feminism is most apparent in the movement’s implacable hostility toward Christianity. (See “The Radical Theology of Feminism,” April 1, 2016.)

Do feminists really believe they can win a war against God? “Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?” (Psalm 2:1 KJV). The shepherd boy slew the blaspheming Philistine, and the Lord’s anointed will ultimately prevail. “Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man” (Ecclesiastes 12:13 KJV). Selah.

There is evil in the world, and the Reddit commenter scolded me for saying as much, when I quoted Michael Voris’s description of the Women’s March on Washington as a “diabolical” event organized by women who “hate God and cannot tolerate their consciences.” Does anyone doubt this? Well, you’re free to believe what you want to believe, but any Christian who studies feminism cannot help but recognize its satanic nature. (Recall how Samantha Couchoud Field’s embrace of feminism led her to become an advocate of abortion, bisexuality, BDSM, socialism, and witchcraft. Yes, of course, she was at the Women’s March.)

Evil exists, and God-haters are dangerous:

A self-proclaimed “antitheist” was sentenced to life in prison for killing his Christian flatmate over her religion.
The 25-year-old Daniel E. was sentenced to life in prison by a court in Freiburg on Monday for killing his Christian student flatmate last August in a crime ruled to be motivated by hate and disdain.
The 31-year-old victim from Paderborn had first met her killer when she moved into a student flatshare last summer. The young woman was an active member of her parish who wanted to later work for the church.
But Daniel E. vehemently rejected any form of religion, and twice before killing her had tried to start a fight, he told police.
On the day of the murder . . . he stormed into her room and asked her what her stance was on same-sex marriage. When she said that she rejected this kind of marriage, he stabbed her while she sat on her bed, with a knife hidden in his trouser pocket. . . .
“He killed her as a representative of her religion because he could not kill all believers,” the judge said.
He had written about his hatred of religion days beforehand in a “manifesto” found on his computer, along with violent video games and films.
An expert testified that [Daniel E.] had seen Hannibal Lecter from the film The Silence of the Lambs as a role model.

What part of “Thou shall not kill” do I need to explain here? If there is no God, there can be no transcendent moral truth. Feminists justify their evil by denying that there is such a thing as truth, or any kind of moral law. This leads to the “Us-versus-Them” mentality, and thus the Hobbesian war of all against all (bellum omnium contra omnes).

As I have said, we should beware of the sinful idea that “human beings can defy God, living according to our own beliefs without respect to God’s law.” You are free to believe what you wish, and I am free to tell you that you’re wrong. Do you doubt that the Women’s March was satanic in nature? Then obviously you weren’t paying attention. Do you think you’re going to defeat Satan without God’s help? Then you are a fool.

Excuse my “religious overtones,” but I know what evil looks like.

These women are quite literally demon-possessed, servants of Satan, under the control of diabolical forces of darkness.

Do you recognize what she is holding in her right hand? Now, try to imagine the cacophony of demonic voices inside her head that have persuaded this woman that she is “empowered.” While you’re at it, try to imagine what her parents must think of what their daughter has become. What a horror it must be to see your own child embrace the lunatic madness of feminism, and turn herself into such a disgusting spectacle. What feminism has done to that deranged young woman, it seeks to do to our entire country. Is there any public school in America today where the teachers don’t endorse feminism? Are there any professors on college campuses speaking out against this soul-destroying ideology? And if the entire secular education establishment, along with the news media and the entertainment industry, are all promoting feminism, how can any parent hope to save their children from this monstrous evil?

People need to start praying, and praying hard.
