Peter Hitchens notes in Human Dignity Redefined how empty the Christian symbols of the supposedly Christian Kingdom of England are, where Christian morality, ethics and laws are casually disposed of by all British governments, regardless of their “conservative” or “liberal” label, or the desires of their supposedly sovereign constituents.
The “Conservatism” of the other Conservative governments in the rest of the
White Atheistic Commonwealth can also be safely ignored. Whether their dumping of religiousoy-driven voters costs them popular support or an election – or all future elections – is far less important than whether they meet the approval of the actual rulers of their nations and societies.
“Why worry about yapping, whining religious freaks, eyes locked on the dead past of What Used To Be? Cultural failures who secretly believe that Satan – and not God – rules the world, and are already defeated losers in their hearts? Fear-driven echo chambers and power-worshiping authoritarians, who merely repeat the talking points of secularist Conservative pundits and politicians of two decades ago?
Just ignore them, and let them wail helplessly as they dwindle and fade away, forever.”
The Rot Starts in the Church Pulpit…
Now, there are a number of reasons for this. Hitchens believes that this willingness to keep the symbols and rape the substance stems from more cunning crypto-Marxist planning.
I disagree: it stems from the Church itself, the Church of England, ever since it made the King of England, rather than the King of Heaven and Earth, the Head of the Church.
This adoration of politically powerful men has consequences: and, since the Church of England has not the slightest intention of changing direction, it will be permitted to go to its grave — along with the English nation — with all the religious symbols and paraphernalia it desires.
…and Ends in the Church Pews
No perversion of the culture can succeed without the support – or at least the acquiescence – of the general population. And that is exactly what has happened here.
And Elijah came near to all the people and said, “How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him.” And the people did not answer him a word.I Kings 18:21, English Standard version
It’s easy to despise the treasonous clerics: but in many ways, they merely reflect the preferences of the (ever-declining) pew warmers, who largely want to be reassured and comforted and kept safe and to enjoy themselves at church.
These people, in general, value peace and good times far, far more than taking on responsibility to insure public justice, care for the poor and the widow, deepen their understanding of the Law and the Commandments, and put in the sacrifices – in time, sweat, blood – needed to expand the Kingdom of God, in this world and in this time.
Uncontroversial pastors are welcomed, and challenging pastors are cast off. Safety today to protect yourself is far preferred to risk today to expand the Kingdom.
So God takes away His Spirit, His blessing, His future away from those deeply religious types that hate Him.
Such frauds can turn to the words of the powerful men they truly fear (and so, truly worship), if they like.
Violating the Third Commandment, as State Policy
There is a second reason: you can’t blaspheme Christ continuously, unless you can wave His name and the symbols of His church while spitting in His face.
Note that this is a point that both conservatives and liberals understand: observe this article on the Radical Right in England, which insists on prostituting Christ’s name in the name of Racial Purity. Or, in a far less virulent vein, Hitchens refusing to condemn both anti-immigrant types and pro-abortionists types as Nazis in his otherwise fine article Hitler the Progressive, even though they both hate unregistered immigrants… and stand against Biblical teaching and legal principles.
But that’s how it is:
- Strong societies welcome both immigrants and big families… a.k.a., The Future!
(See Marinov’s How Christianity Invented the Future for more.)
- Weak societies hate both…. and fight vainly to Keep Things the Same.
After all, all those passport controls didn’t exist until after Europeans started killing themselves in World War I… and will remain until said unrepentant Europeans are simply irrelevant.
It is natural that societies that institutionalize the hatred of Christ’s Name — by hostile avoidance (US style), or contemptuous misuse (UK style) — naturally hates children as much as they hate immigrants.
“Those babies and immigrants aren’t here for us to convert to a better, God-grounded Christian culture: they’re here to destroy our hollowed-out, aging societies!”
“Those babies and immigrants aren’t here to grow our free market, no-welfare economy. They aren’t here to insure we invest in the future, by saving for the kids or training the immigrants. They are here to take away the money we intend to consume the welfare money and debt money we intend to spend on or our own pleasure, today!”
“The Future is a threat! It implies that we will not stand forever, that we will die someday. Let’s kill it!“
The web site Economica is grounded on documenting the aging of the West… and the rest of the world, except Africa. (“Infested with those unproductive, dark-skinned Muslims and Christians.
Let’s repent and start having kids of our own! Let’s kill them… or at least sterilize them.)
As of October 24, 2019, some of the more interesting articles include:
- America 2020 Through 2040…The Era Of The 80+ Year-Old
- Is Elon Musk Right About Global “Population Collapse”???
- Why This Time is Completely, Utterly, Totally Different…Like the Difference between a Hurricane and an Ice Age
As the God-hating West kindly dries up and blows away, there will be plenty of other articles.
This is in pointed contrast to the earlier, growing and God-fearing West. But, like yesterday’s right-wing Enlightenment types…
“Service to the State! Glory to the Race!”
…today’s left-wing Enlightenment power-elite…
“Service to the State! Power to the Party!”
…prefer to have their nations and cultures die in hatred of God, than live in repentance and obedience of Him.
And — in reference to Two Diverging Worlds – Wealthy Nations Population and Demographic Declines…Poor Nation Growth No Substitute — I wouldn’t worry about “Africa’s productivity” if I were you.
As if academics ever ‘worried about Africa’ in the sense of ‘protecting African interests.’
As compared to their actual desire: to insure the ever-decreasing number of Africans in existence. “Zero would be nice, but we would be satisfied to have just a few million living in jungles, plantations, and chain gangs. For old time’s sake.”
But aging and cynical Darwinian dead-enders has ever hated the young and hope-filled Christian future.
The Rewards of Elite Racism
The Chinese really should have been far less trusting of their smiling white comrades, as they pushed the Chinese into their murderous One Child policy. Too late now: we are going to get an African future, not a Chinese one, exactly because of the success of those grinning comrades and their completely scientific, totally unbiased advice.
I wonder if those Friendly Advisors with the Forked Tongues are pleased with themselves.
Probably as much as those British Conservatives that stomped out large-scale Hong Kong immigration into London in the 1980s… leaving room for large-scale Islamic immigration instead.
The wealthy, well-spoken racists who drive the Population Control movement will likely succeed at achieving their goal… up to a point. African fertility rates are indeed decreasing, and I predict that they will fall unto the point where the God-fearers, bearing children by choice, replace the irreligious ones. In Africa, and everywhere else.
Something that never did happen in White Christian Europe, mainly because of broad public support for the theft-based welfare state (the impersonal “fake family” of the State, to replace the deeply resented real family), coupled with rationalist narratives and the love of ‘free’ State-adoring secularist education.
But no worries: the distinct lack of a religious European population will be effortlessly substituted by religious non-European populations. The land will be inhabited, as God demands… by people who love Him, and not by people who hate Him.
People who love God inherit the land. People who hate God are disinherited.
Isn’t that astonishing?
The Quick and the Dead
By the 2050s, there will be no more starving Africans, as imported tech-powered wealth — see “cell phones”, “solar panels”, “free internet” — will have given the poorest farmer the tools he needs to get past sustenance level.
This wealth will only increase, as technology grows and is distributed. And the locals generate their own businesses, large and small, on the net and out of the reach of the local keptocrats.
And, unsurprisingly, living Africans make more money than dead/never-born/never-conceived Europeans. Regardless of supposed IQ levels: levels that won’t remain fixed forever.
(See “internet”, “networking”, “online schooling”… even “reliable nutrition” and “predictable energy production.”)
So what, if it takes a century — or ten centuries — for Africa to be as wealthy as Europe?
It’s far, far better than being so much dust in the wind.
Or having your entire culture, nation, and people reduced to a six-paragraph section in some unread world history book of AD 3000.
God Opens — and Closes — the Womb
- For the Lord had closed all the wombs of the house of Abimelech because of Sarah, Abraham’s wife.
– Genesis 20:18, ESV
- Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.
– Psalm 128:3, ESV
- The wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray from birth, speaking lies.
– Psalm 58:3, ESV
- For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
– Psalm 139:13 ESV
- And he must not drink wine or strong drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb.
– Luke 1:15b, ESV
God sees children as a blessing, and the lack of children as a curse.
This does not mean that children per se are sacred and perfect: they can be evil from birth, and God can and does have children which are brought forth, only to serve as instruments of cursing and destruction. (See Romans 9.)
But as a rule: to have children is a blessing, and displays obedience to the commandment, “be fruitful and multiply”.
Naturally, those who hate God generally wish to be sterile, as a way to show their rebellion and hatred of His commandments. It should not be so astonishing, that God on occasion gives His enemies their hearts deepest desire.
Especially when it helps annoying problems resolve themselves nicely, typically within a century. It is natural and logical for those who hate God to love death, after all.
Of course, God’s enemies also want to enslave/kill other human beings, young and old: and especial destroy/steal the children of Christians, or at least render them as sterile as possible.
Merely bearing God’s Image — never mind daring to speak His Word! — has always enraged the enemies of God.
But as their rebellion runs its course, the future of the God haters fades… flickers… dies.
And God’s people will inherit the earth.
- When the wicked dies, his hope will perish, and the expectation of wealth perishes too.
– Proverbs 11:7, ESV
- A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the sinner’s wealth is laid up for the righteous.
– Proverbs 13:22, ESV
