Great Lies seducing American culture:
- God and religion are irrelevant in the public space.
- Truth, if it exists at all, is determined not by the Creator, Scripture, natural law, unalienable rights but by gender, skin color, sexual orientation, or the latest identity du jour.
- Abortion is women’s health.
- Abortion on demand is acceptable late trimester, and even after-birth or “born alive” a mother and doctor in some states can choose whether the baby lives.
- Sex and/or gender are a complex spectrum.
- Cancel culture is legitimate, even if the “offense” happened decades ago, and even to getting people fired or ruining reputations.
- Suppressing free speech and debate are justifiable in the name of social justice.
- Questioning the “prevailing acceptable woke narrative” is “violence” and prima facie racist.
- Disregard for the rule of law, violent rioting, looting, arson, and destruction of property are justifiable in the name of social justice.
- Race matters above all else and “racial harmony” is racist.
- Antifa is anti-fascist.
- Black Lives Matter the organization is simply about assuring black lives matter.
- Moral opposition to some behavior or action makes one ipso facto a “hater.” Thus, disagreeing with Islam = Islamophobia; with homosexuality = homophobia, with same-sex marriage = bigotry; with taking a knee to the National Anthem = racism; with “All-white-people-are-racist” = white fragility and evidence of “privilege.”
- The USA was founded not upon religious liberty but white supremacy and slavery.
“The devil…does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies,” (John 8:44). “And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light,” (2 Corinthians 11:14).
