McAtee on McCarthy

“A nation like ours has many power centers. The alignment of those power centers is what determines cultural force and, in the long run, political success as well. Corporate executives, celebrities, academics, editorialists, and even many religious leadersnot at all exclusively from liberal denominations — in general oppose the police and support the protests, and if they think the rioters go to excess, they’re inclined to think it’s just a case of misplaced zeal or an excusable response to oppression. The master framework that applies before any facts are considered — facts like the real cause of most violent deaths among blacks in America today, or even investigation into the facts about George Floyd’s death — is a moral framework that designates saints and sinners, victims and oppressors.”

Daniel McCarthy

And this is … as I have exhausted myself in saying, at least as it pertains to putatively religious leaders, the results of a R2K type thinking that refuses to teach civil narratives because they are “not in the Church’s purview.” As such Christians come to believe skubala narratives and eventually even the Christian leaders come to believe those skubala narratives. So, what we eventually get is conservative Christians who love them some Jebuss but are believing narratives that are anti-Christ because not rooted and grounded in truth. Instead, what is dished out is the 6 millionth altar call, or pietistic sentimental mush about not being “worldly,” or Redemptive Historical treatments that are always only indicative and never ever imperative.

Where are the sermons in the Church that touches on these false narratives that Christians (leaders and laity alike) are believing that move them to support criminal riotous protests as well as criminal anti-Christ organizations like Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and various Communist Fronts? The information on these skubala narratives is out there for those with eyes to see and courage to believe. The information that American slavery wasn’t the genocide attempt characterized by cruelty and lasciviousness that the Academic left has insisted that it was ever since Harriet Beecher Stowe’s “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” – itself a tissue of lies and a foundation of centuries of propaganda. The information that American Lynching was not an exclusively black experience, nor even fell disproportionally on blacks is out there for those with eyes to see and courage to believe. The information is out there that the American Civil Rights movement was organized and funded by Marxists is out there for those with eyes to see and courage to believe. The statistics for black on white crime vis-a-vis white on black crime is out there for people with eyes to see and courage to believe. The idea that White people are routinely abusing black people is absurd, especially in light of the fact that the very opposite is true. LOOK AT THE STATISTICS ON VIOLENT CRIME.

Yet the Church remains silent in the task of dismissing these skubala narratives — narratives that need to be corrected because the accepting and owning of the skubala narratives is intended ultimately to pull Christ off His throne. They are intended to say, “Just look how these Christian White people acted towards minorities. Obviously their religion, their Fathers, and their savior is wicked.” And this quite without providing any historical context, qualification, or nuance. It is the narrative of the Marxist, the Jacobin, the Abolitionist and it is the skubala narrative that nobody in the Church wants to beat back. Partially because the clergy corps is just stupid about history. Partially because the clergy corps wants to be hale and well met and not upset the apple cart thus jeopardizing their jobs and paychecks. Partially because the clergy themselves are only Christian in the sense of having a thin patina of Christianity covering them. Their real essence is Marxism. These clergy fools are going to get us all killed by swarthy peoples who hate white people for the sole reason that historically white people have been the carriers of Biblical Christianity.

Can anybody see an Augustine, or a Calvin, or a Knox, or a Luther put up with this skubala narrative that finds Christ’s people denounced and murdered all because they brought their faith to bear on those who became the white Christian’s burden? Luther loved the Germans. Knox loved the Scots. In this climate that by itself is enough to toss them on the ash heap with Whitfield and Edwards because they owned slaves.

Honestly, Churches where these skubala narratives are supported, either by refusing to damn them or by explicitly supporting them, need to be emptied and left impoverished. By supporting these Churches that support these skubala narratives the laity is supporting the redefining of Jesus Christ, Christianity, and civilization, and are turning their descendants over to a dystopian future that can only be read about wherever Marxist Revolution has successfully planted its flag. (If you have the stomach to read it.)
