A Dyspeptic Easter Meditation

 

There’s an interesting argument in pop culture that evil is apparently repelled only by things they regard as holy. Why are Western communists triggered by Christian or Jewish religious symbols yet not by Muslim or even Aztec objects, human sacrifice notwithstanding? The implied genuflection before they strike is a back handed admission that subjectively at least for Western Marxists, here is the true adversary. – Richard Fernandez

The Biden administration saw fit to use the one-year anniversary of transgender Audrey Hale’s mass murder of Christians and their children to direct the government to celebrate transgenderism on the highest of holy Christian holidays.

Such mockery directed toward Christians generally, and the Christian dead in particular, should be plainly obvious to anyone. We should believe them when they tell us who they are.

Vichy  Regime evangelicals, though, have been preoccupied this week wailing and gnashing their teeth over the fact that Donald Trump has apparently gone into business selling bibles. Notably, there has been almost complete silence from those same lickspittles regarding the intentional profanation being engaged in by Biden. Sad to say, we should also believe the Vichy regime evangelicals when they tell us who they are.

I’m not particularly a fan of Trump, but even little children who watch Sesame Street can tell that, between selling bibles and mocking the Christian dead, “one of these things is not like the other”.

Understand the times.

    Whenever Trump does something ill-considered, offensive or dumb, it is yet another reason to increasingly loathe all those who have made voting for him not merely rational but necessary.

    That is a great quote and so true.

    Pro-Hamas demonstrators interrupted the Easter Service at St. Patricks. A trailer-ful of Bibles was burned outside a Tennessee church.  Transgender Awareness Day at the White House on Easter. 

    I wonder if Christians are, even now, mounting violent riots mostly peaceful protests worldwide?
