Christianity is Not for Cucks: Roy Moore Edition

12 November 2017 Articles News & Analysis


The Left is racing to turn churches into impotent, Social Justice clubs so the abrasive, judgmental style of Roy Moore will not spread to other Christians.

As Hollywood and Washington Semites begin to face public scrutiny for their sexual proclivities, the media is widely reporting allegations of sexual misconduct about Roy Moore, the Senate candidate and conservative Christian from Alabama. There is no way to know at this point if Moore will be forced by public pressure to leave the race or if there is any shred of truth to the allegations.  Moore, who has faced legal action for defying federal orders about removing religious monuments from public property, issued a combative denial of the charges:

The concept of earthly politics reflecting a spiritual battle between good and evil has been suppressed in almost every Christian denomination, with disastrous consequences for public policy. Many White Christians have been convinced that their political opponents are striving for the same end goals for society but merely disagree about the best way to achieve those goals. This is Rod Dreher’s Moralistic Theraputic Deism in action; Christians are supposed to treat Muslims, Jews, and secularists as acting in good faith, no matter how many times they are betrayed. “Help us add Muslim holidays to the American calendar,” they say, “after all we are all people of faith.” “Gay marriage is just freedom for consenting adults,” they promise, “not an attack on the family.”

Over and over again, Christians watered down their social message in order to speak the truth in love. But speaking truth becomes a moot point if the minions of Satan are allowed to define what counts as love, and each compromise just leads to calls for more blatantly anti-Christian self-abasement. The Obama era strategy of slowly restricting religious freedom on the job and in the public sphere was working, but has now given way to legal and physical attacks on Christian businesses and Christian houses of worship. Once again, when many conservatives were content to lose gracefully the Left forcibly created identity politics for religious people. This is why Trump won the evangelical vote, despite his shaky religious credentials, over the protests of Eric Erickson and John Piper.

Roy Moore is the antithesis of the cringing, pathetic Christian apologists who spend more time apologizing for insensitive sermons and denouncing racism than opposing evil and degeneracy. As a judge, Moore had the gall to privilege the traditional nuclear family and defend children from the influence of homosexuality. That is the kind of power and influence that most American Christians voluntarily choose not to wield out of a misguided sense of pluralism.  That power is a potential threat to the Left, so any imperfect representative of assertive Christianity must be destroyed. The voters of Alabama have, perhaps instinctively, chosen the one man with the personality and career history to withstand a brutal social shaming campaign. We will soon see if Roy Moore can really measure up to this national challenge.
