No, they will never quit. The Marching Morons of Mordor will not rest until they’ve suffocated all of us and begin slitting each other’s throats for an encore. The luminous darkness of their perverted faith drives them on, blindly, irrevocably, shouting their unholy sacred shibboleths as they go. “What do we want?” “Dead everything!” When do we want it?” “We want it now!”
Of course California leads the way, once again a proudly flaunted dystopian model for the rest of nation. Its nothing new, really, we’ve seen it so many times over the last few years. Now the California legislature intends to ban books, books that contain a particular kind of Wrong Think. Books that advocate for (shudder) Christian sexual ethics. I know, I can hear you crying out, “Oh, the humanity!” as I did myself. From the article by David French linked above:
Yes, ban the sale of books.
Assembly Bill 2943 would make it an “unlawful business practice” to engage in “a transaction intended to result or that results in the sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer” that advertise, offer to engage in, or do engage in “sexual orientation change efforts with an individual.”
The bill then defines “sexual orientations change efforts” as “any practices that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation. This includes efforts to change behaviors or gender expressions, or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same sex.”
Christians find their identity in Christ, not in their gender and not in their sexual orientation. The state of California says no. Your gender and your orientation are your identity, and you should engage in actions that celebrate and ratify your alleged essence. The state is creating a new religion of sexual libertinism, declaring that religions opposing it aren’t just false but harmful, and then prohibiting contrary religious exercise.
Despite the obvious constitutional problems and despite its obvious intolerance for the Christian ethics of millions of its citizens, the bill is presently sailing through — passing two committee votes by 8–2 and 8–1 margins. It may come up for an Assembly vote as soon as this Thursday.
French is right in saying that the State is establishing an official and exclusive State Religion, though I don’t think it is a religion of sexual libertinism. Sexual libertinism is just one of the doctrines of this religion. It is the religion of Unholy Progressivism, also known as Marxism, Socialism, or Communism. It apes Christian love and compassion as it subverts and inverts it.
Another thing French has right, the Left’s goal is to defeat and dominate, to plant Orwell’s famous boot in a human face forever. Lest it be unclear, this is not some theory that applies to someone else. You may not be interested in the Dictatorship of the Proletariat (really the Dictatorship of the Well Heeled and Politically Connected, as history has always shown), but the Dictatorship of the Proletariat is interested in you. They are coming for us, for me and for you, they just can’t help themselves.
So its time to get on the horn to your legislators in Sacramento and let them know what you think. You may say, “Oh, they don’t listen to me anyway.” If you were by yourself that would be true. That is just exactly what they want you to think, “Its just me, there is nothing I can do so I may as well do nothing.” B.S. But you are not by yourself, and you won’t be by yourself. Pass the word, and to it pronto. The more folks call – CALL! – there will come a threshold point at which even these insane clowns can’t remain clueless, secure as they are in their sanctimonious self-satisfaction, in the face of massive public opposition. So call the SOBs and give them a piece of your mind, you’ll still have plenty left over. And I say, and will write about it in the future, get ready to mount some serious civil disobedience.
So to follow up on previous posts, I did indeed to to the range yesterday with my new Springfield M1A SoCom. A very nice shooting gun. I sent 100 rounds downrange and really made the IRS agents down there nervous. Too bad there weren’t any Loony Lefties, at least that I could see.
Oh, the humanity.
