A significant amount of the population, millions of unelected bureaucrats and government agency employees, and academia and corporate boardrooms have undergone a profound religious transformation in the last two years.
When your politics are your religion, government is your god. The absence of faith becomes a faith itself.
Evidently, unknown to many of us, the center of government in Washington , DC, has become a temple for those looking for salvation in all the wrong places. There, surrounded by barbed wire and federal troops, is what used to be known as “The People’s House”, but instead is now holy ground for a new state theology and discipline.
“this sacred place was desecrated…this temple of democracy was defiled…” – Sen Dick Durbin ( D Ill )
“This…our sacred chamber…” – Sen Ed Markey ( D Mass )
“..to those that engaged in the gleeful desecration of this, our temple of democracy…justice will be done.”- Nancy Pelosi (D CA)
“The capitol…is the center and sacred symbol of democracy…” – Mario Diaz Balazar ( R FL )
Our Temple of Doom lies in D.C.. So what are the tenets of the adopted cultish faith that it espouses and how does it dominate our lives?
If you have a job with a mid to large sized corporation, work for the government, or are not in a coma, you may already be familiar with some.
I. Diversity and Inclusion
Whether in the classroom, the boardroom, the bathroom, or the breakroom, “Diversity and Inclusion” is everywhere. What does it mean? Well, namely it means over representing every Socially Protected Group you can think of in a spectacular and ridiculous fashion, while “othering” those not in said Protected Group. Some of the scripture for this tenet is as follows, but there is much, much more.
Logic is bad.
The nuclear family is bad.
Merit, innate talent and skill are bad.
Some people are born evil and irredeemable, and others are born better.
The solution to racism is racism.
If labeled an “oppressor” you are accountable for the sins of the past, yet if you are deemed “oppressed” you are exempt from the sins of the present.
Judging others by their character, talent, skill, and circumstance…instead of race, tribe, sexual preference, or victim group, is an act of bigotry and hate. You absolutely must accept, tolerate, and promote this tenet. Robin D’Angelo and “Ibram X Kendi” – aka Henry Rogers, are the High Priests of this doctrine.
II. LGBTQQIAAP2S+ Activism (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, Ally, Pedoph…oops, I mean Pansexual, Two-Spirit, Plus)
That was exhausting! Sometimes this tenet of the faith gets lumped in with the previous one, but let’s be honest, this deserves its own section. This charade and parade of ridiculousness has evolved into a clown show that’s beyond belief. The truth of biology and science must be denied by an adherent, and the acceptance of patently obvious mental illness and social hysteria must be demonstrated by the heretical.
It’s really very sad. I’ve never been a social conservative, whatever that is, and I’ve always thought that grown adults should be able to do what they want in the privacy of their own homes…as long as it’s not with kids, animals or relatives… but can we be honest for a minute?
Why self-respecting gay people tolerate being lumped into this stuff, I’ll never know. I don’t care what you do with your pals, at your club or whatever…but if you’re panty-less in drag or in a furry suit with a fake dick attached you shouldn’t be hosting Library Hour, Kindergarten classes, or corporate H.R. training. No one should be throwing dollar bills at little kids being used as accessories for their demented parents. And on another note, it’s not shocking anymore, it’s just gross. Nobody cares, so just stop it…nobody cares that you’re a they/them that wants to transform into their past abuser, or a confused zim/zur in a skirt wearing lipstick who hates its Dad. It’s tired, and the complete opposite of rebellious. The globe’s biggest corporations, governments, and entertainment media are in complete lockstep with you. Stop making the rest of us pretend you don’t have massive parental issues or an abusive childhood. Get a shrink and talk it out, but give it a rest with using the power of your government god to make me act like you’re not nuts. The rest of us hide our crazy, so why don’t you? I used to hear “stay out of my bedroom” a lot from these types, now I want to tell them to get your bedroom out of every aspect of my life, and out of my work, and out of my kid’s classrooms. It’s gotten beyond stupid.
III. Intrusion And Incompetence
This tenet of the faith may be unintended, but it’s also inevitable. When logic, pragmatism, and reason are forfeited for cultish religious faith, bad decisions are made. Every solution to a problem must be weighed against how they promote and justify adherence. Noble lies must be told.
Wherever you look, right this very minute, every function and foundation of society suffers from ideological incompetence. Commerce and supply chain? Here’s your guy. I’m sure “identity” has nothing to do with this buffoon’s appointment to Transportation Secretary. 2 months off for paternity leave and counting.
Covid policy, illegal and unconstitutional vaccine mandates, federal law enforcement actions…literally every institution’s behavior is not only hopelessly corrupt, but also infected with the state religion. So, naturally they are incompetent at best and actively malevolent at worst.
IV. Inquisition and Persecution
Just like other religious hysterias throughout history, this one depends on Inquisitors and enforcers to maintain control. Are you thinking correctly? And if you’re not, are you pretending to? Have you committed acts of heresy or spoken in objection to the faith? Have your neighbors or family members noticed your ungodly acts or speech?
Whether on social media, or on your resume, or in casual conversation, such as it exists, can you be sure you are safe? Will you be outed as an outlier, The Other? Will the enforcers of the state and/or their corporate cohorts arrive at your door to illicit your repentance ? Have you had the shot? Do you not only embrace but truly endorse the faith?
If not, you will be punished, tortured, and made to confess. Starve, pleb…bow to their will or suffer and be ostracized. Your livelihood, your home, your assets, your “social credit”…all are in jeopardy. There is no cost to society, nor to the individual, that outweighs submission.
Finally, the most important tool of the state and it’s religion. Currently, the 2 biggest fear motivators for the faithful are Covid, and climate change. Climate change, in all its incarnations over the past few decades, wasn’t either convincing enough or wasn’t demonstrable enough to get the results wanted. Sure, the useful idiots out there still get all aflutter over the weather, but let’s be real, in the over a decade and half since a robotic Al Gore warned of the rising of the seas and the melting of the ice caps, none of the dire predictions have materialized. I personally spent a year living on an island in the Gulf of Mexico twenty years ago that was at sea level. Guess what? It’s still there, and that’s just one anecdote.
Then a true gift to the Temple arrived. Covid. What started as an attempt to defeat and mitigate the Virus Of Unknown Origin quickly morphed into an incredible and unprecedented bludgeon of power and control. Low death rate to those not in risk groups? Overcounting death rates and denying therapeutic treatments? Natural immunity? DevilSpeak. Personal medical autonomy and right to privacy…”my body my choice”? Blasphemy.
Finally a tactic and trojan horse that works. You see it everywhere. Put on your ineffectual and pathogen-laden mask. Take the ineffectual and pathogen-laden shot. Be marked as one of the faithful or be cast out. You can see the fearful and obedient all around you…wearing their mask in cars or outside, posting selfies of their injection, force-masking and jabbing their kids for social credit, tattling and screeching when one of the Unwashed appears. There is no more “science” to their belief than there was in the Dark Ages…where bad smells and witchcraft were to blame for the maladies of the faithful. Yet the ritual must be undertaken, whether it protects or not. The mask and the shot are their wine and wafer.
In this, our ever-changing and horrid now… there is a definite challenge before those that are not going to believe in this religion, who aren’t going to cast aside their God for this false idol. They must realize that there is no separation between this new and rotten church and the old and rotten state, only the union of the two. Their tenets have been laid out, their sacraments laid bare. The gospel is clear. Submit. Consent. Be silent. Repent. Be afraid. Confess. Kneel.
Will you convert, or have you already?
