I had a peaceful run-in the other day with a young fellow from the Church of Diversity. Unlike the German socialist who I threw out of my office a month or so ago (and who physically smelled), this diversity fellow was too darn nice and clean-cut for me to take any offense. Nor was I looking for any.
When I see these kids from the Church of Diversity (or their other denomination, the Church of Environmental Wacko-ism), I generally just smile and hold my tongue. Admit it, I could no more talk any of you out of your belief in Jesus Christ than I could talk these kids out of their various Leftist beliefs.
That these yutes have no idea that they are supporting a rotgut Leftist cause, and are the equivalent of emasculated sheep in aiding and abetting the hardcore higher-ups, is both cause for alarm and for some sympathy. But doing in-office interventions is just too difficult of a task. If I could get paid for it, then maybe.
Some of this fluffy “diversity” stuff is harmless. It can, in some respects, be analogous to the Christian idea of brotherly love. But one very large and important difference between the two points of view is that justice, not equality, is (or should be) the guiding light of Christians. And justice depends upon the very idea of there being a right and wrong, of not all things being the same simply because that idea gives you the warm-fuzzies.
But for the Church of Diversity, “equality” is the highest principle. And you can’t have equality (even if just inside your head in pleasing imaginings) if you need to make judgments of others. Therefore you simply declare, by acclimation, that Jews are the same as Christians which are the same as Hindus which are the same as Muslims which are the same as the Manson Family.
This is why a flaky and misguided “non-judmentalism” is part and parcel of the Church of Diversity. If you had to point out that the Muslim doctrines of hating Jews, of institutionalized misogyny, of hatred of homosexuals, of an aggressive and murderous built-in Jihadism, then it would spoil the self-satisfying warm-fuzzy vibes of being the world’s roving Buddha by declaring love for all.
And that Christians themselves have forgotten their own religion and bought into this stuff is perhaps grist for a future post.
