The War of Words – Ephesians 6:12

LudditesI saw an online article 12 Phrases Progressives Need To Ditch (And What We Can Say Instead). Go read the article only if you want to bemoan the coming fall of Western civilization (don’t say I did not warn you!). The article is a shining example of how the battle of ideas in the Western world is being fought at the level of the words and phrases. Even the idea that these people self-label as “progressive” is part of that battle. Because if you are not progressive, then you must be a Luddite who is against “progress.”  Now, I could break down the full article, but will instead select a few low-lights from these “progressives” who appear to be taking over our country.

Low-light #1 from the article:

(7). Homophobic: People who oppose equal rights for gays, lesbians, and gender atypical individuals are not “afraid,” as the “phobic” suffix implies. They are mean, bigoted [profanity]. Instead, try: Anti-Gay.

I am so glad that these “progressives” are not mean or bigoted themselves, but are rather quite tolerant of all ideas which may include personal religious expression. What an encouragement that is to me that they will support my right to free speech in  the future. <end sarcasm>. At least they got the first part right. The overwhelming majority of people who believe homosexuality is a sin or merely bad for a society are not afraid of homosexuals. Now, the whole idea of “gender atypical” is ridiculous. For thousands of years everyone has been able easily recognize that people are either boys or girls, but somehow now we are incapable of understanding simple concepts of biology. So much for us evolving into more intelligent life forms.

Low-light #2 from the article:

(9). Pro-Life: Ugh. They are NOT pro-life. Once a child takes its first breath, these supposed conservative “pro-lifers” couldn’t care less about the quality of life for the child or mother. Let’s call them by their true name for once. Instead, try: Anti-Choice. Because, that’s what they really are about. They don’t care about “life.” They only seek to deny choices to women. Not just the choice of whether or not to have a child, but whether a woman can — like a man — embrace her full sexuality without having to worry about pregnancy, and whether she can make related choices about her body, her career, and when to have children, as men always have.

1984Now, it easy to throw around accusations claiming that pro-life individuals “couldn’t care less about the quality of life for the child or mother,” but they have no data to support this. However, it is clear from this paragraph that they are really “pro-promiscuity.” One of the saddest parts of this commentary (other than the rejoicing in the killing of babies) is that it holds up promiscuity and the shirking of family duties among men as something to be desired also by women. Perhaps we should just call these people selfish.
From these examples we see that this is a battle of ideas through the intentional manipulation of words and phrases (as presciently described by George Orwell in 1984). And, this is a battle that is waged not only among men and women, but by “the cosmic powers over this present darkness and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12).

Just a few centimeters

The “monster” Kermit Gosnell was recently convicted of murdering countless newborn babies. We can certainly be relieved by his conviction. Unfortunately, there are many other Kermit Gosnell’s free and working again today. The only difference between Gosnell and every other abortion provider is just a few centimeters. If Gosnell had been able to carry out these murders a few centimeters on the other side of the birth canal, he would never have been tried for murder of these children. If you are still a supporter of murdering unborn children, I would challenge to go read this article. If you can read articles like that and see those pictures and still be pro-death, may God have mercy on your sin-hardened soul and bring you to repentance before it is too late.
