Alabama Republicans still supporting Roy Moore are being mocked while the letter from the women of Saturday Night Live defending Al Franken is being applauded.
Y’know I’m starting to think that all these accusations being made public won’t actually change anything.
For a moment, when all these accusers came forward I thought maybe this could do some good. But I think we’re too far gone to have any rational national conversation that doesn’t devolve into my side vs. your side. I think now we’re truly down to a power struggle and all other issues will be weaponized in order to win. Because that’s where we are now. The two sides are far enough apart that there’s no coming together. I’m not talking about Republicans vs. Democrats. Republicans are for the most part Democrats without the guts to say it.
I spoke to a number of people who said that if the Democrats were serious about it, they’d have gotten rid of Conyers or Franken. But that’s the thing. They’re not. We know this. I truly believe that if people on the right truly believed the media reports about Roy Moore they’d turn on him. The problem is that they don’t. They don’t believe anything coming out of the media right now.
We’re just too far gone to even have a discussion anymore or react rationally.
In the end, this will come down to leftism vs. Christianity. Either you’re in the camp that believes America needs to be transformed into some socialist progressive utopia or you believe that in order to survive we must return to our Christian heritage. That’s it. It’s that stark. Personally, I think we’ve got a few more years of fight left before most of the Christians surrender. I hope I’m wrong. But I’m not. Then it’s just a matter of finding some place where it won’t totally suck to be a Christian. I don’t know if it’ll be farmland in Montana or some other country altogether. But Christians won’t be welcome in many many places in future America, I’d bet.
If you’re looking for reason for hope, there’s many great Catholic and Christian organizations doing great work. There’s the SBA List, there’s U.S. Supreme Court Justice Neal Gorsuch, there’s the Alliance Defending Freedom, thousands of pro-life sidewalk counselors and crisis pregnancy workers, and thousands of (mostly women) saying the rosary every day at parishes across the country. Oh, and a number of wonderful Catholic schools. But it’s an uphill battle.
The thing is, it’s not just about America. It’s about the souls of the people in it. Future generations can be lost. Millions of souls. So I won’t be giving up. It’s worth fighting for. But we are battling the media that pours their social views into our living rooms, academia which is paid by us to corrupt our children, and the government which won’t stop until it makes any and all acts of public Christianity illegal.
