The rancid results of identity politics is becoming apparent in the USA, where the death rate for minorities is increasing, including, sadly, the death of a eight year old girl. There will be a backlash, and it will not be intersectional. The men remaining in the States will protect their wives and children, and since there is no police and the justice system is converged (that is to say, corrupt) it will be a little more akin to the Westerns.
In the Antipodes, the very woke state of Victoria is quarantined because of the COVID from the rest of Australia. NZ is letting in permanent residents, not just citizens, and having cases reported in isolation. This is not going well.
So time for some classic theology: God is not mocked. You cannot, as a nation, walk away from him and not expect recompense.
13 Thus says the Lord to me, “Go and buy a linen loincloth and put it round your waist, and do not dip it in water.” 2 So I bought a loincloth according to the word of the Lord, and put it round my waist. 3 And the word of the Lord came to me a second time, 4 “Take the loincloth that you have bought, which is round your waist, and arise, go to the Euphrates and hide it there in a cleft of the rock.” 5 So I went and hid it by the Euphrates, as the Lord commanded me. 6 And after many days the Lord said to me, “Arise, go to the Euphrates, and take from there the loincloth that I commanded you to hide there.” 7 Then I went to the Euphrates, and dug, and I took the loincloth from the place where I had hidden it. And behold, the loincloth was spoiled; it was good for nothing.
8 Then the word of the Lord came to me: 9 “Thus says the Lord: Even so will I spoil the pride of Judah and the great pride of Jerusalem. 10 This evil people, who refuse to hear my words, who stubbornly follow their own heart and have gone after other gods to serve them and worship them, shall be like this loincloth, which is good for nothing. 11 For as the loincloth clings to the waist of a man, so I made the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah cling to me, declares the Lord, that they might be for me a people, a name, a praise, and a glory, but they would not listen.
Nothing much to add but this: our leaders are doubling down on liberalizing abortion, euthanasia, and encouraging those who hate Christ to protest. They want to regulate the church, and make us bend the knee. Formula One is a good example here.
Riccardo went down on one knee though which is rather disappointing. He is the ‘good guy’ of the F1 grid, so I assume he thought it would help things if he got with the program. It won’t help at all. All it does is mark you as being a future extortion target. It’s the same as saying sorry to SJW harassers. As soon as you do that, you’re doomed.
So once you take the knee you will always be on your knees. That’s the entire point. You can’t take it back. It will brand you, as if you were a slave. The only correct choice is to literally stand up for your own freedom.
Let Jesus be Lord. Do not bow to another, particularly to those who hate God, your nation, and you. And do not let them drag you down: which they will want to do.
