Some time back, I was reading through some interesting thoughts on religion and the Left when I came upon the following comment explaining one of the more sinister ways the Left works to undermine Christianity. Sadly, they are aided by unwitting dupes who naively try to have a reasonable interchange.
This piece deals with how a particular leftist homosexual propagandist worms his way into the conversation and stays there.
This is how it works. McNeill reinterprets the story of Sodom, claiming that it does not condemn homosexuality, but gang rape. Orthodox theologians respond, in a commendable but naïve attempt to rebut him, naïve because these theologians presume that McNeill believes his own arguments, and is writing as a scholar, not as a propagandist. McNeill ignores the arguments of his critics, dismissing their objections as based on homophobia, and repeats his original position. The orthodox respond again as if they were really dealing with a theologian. And back and forth for a few more rounds. Until finally McNeill or someone like him stands up and announces, “You know, this is getting us nowhere. We have our exegesis and our theology. You have yours. Why can’t we just agree to disagree?” That sounds so reasonable, so ecumenical. And if the orthodox buy into it, they have lost, because the gay rights apologists have earned a place at the table from which they will never be dislodged. Getting at the truth about Sodom and Gomorrah, or correctly parsing the sexual ethics of St. Thomas, was never really the issue. Winning admittance to Holy Communion was the issue.
This paragraph explains exactly how the Left corrupts Christianity, and frankly, everything they touch. This is how we got deviant marriage. A Leftist can invent the most outrageous, silly, dishonest and downright stupid thesis to which no moderately educated person would give any credence. But some well meaning, yet foolish intellectual will take it on face value. Then the thesis takes on a life of its own.
The People must stop deferring to so called experts and the like. These are people who too often live in Cloud Cuckoo Land and are so enamored of fine sounding words that they are regularly taken in by leftist scoundrels.
We must stop shirking our responsibility and call out the lies and liars for what and who they are. Time is running short.
