There is a recent phenomenon in our ongoing saga of the kulturkampf (Culture War) and that is the denial by those Cultural Marxists waging the kulturkampf that the culture wars really exist. This follows the same technique that government school teachers were taught to employ decades ago. Teachers were taught that when parents came to them at different times about the same problem going on in the classroom that the way to defuse the parent’s complaint was by telling them, “Really? You are the first parent to come to me with a complaint on this subject.” The teacher would keep dishing out that line no matter how many parents came to her with the same complaint about the same problem. By implicitly denying the problem while at the same time sending the multitude of parents home thinking that somehow they were seeing problems that were not present the government schools were able to continue with the educational malfeasance without a problem. The teachers were winning the kulturkampf with the parents by denying that there was a problem that anybody was noticing but one complaining parent. It really was a stroke of manipulative genius.
Today that kind of denialism is happening in our broader culture. People are raising their voices in complaint but the cultural gatekeepers at the Fake News Outlets often keep saying, “problem? what problem?” These people are in denialism mode.
Culture war denialism is pursued not only by Fake News outlets but we are getting it in pulpits all across America. Whenever the clergy refuses to address from the pulpit the attack on cultural institutions that are immediately and obviously downstream from and are being informed and shaped by Biblical Christian categories there the parishioners are experiencing kulturkampf denialism. The parishioners are implicitly being told by their Clergy’s silence that they can continue to remain asleep as what little remains of Christian cultural norms burn down around their ears.
The above paragraph explains one of the dangers of Radical Two Kingdom theology (R2K). R2K insists by way of dogma that the pulpit should be silent on cultural issues. R2K insists that a man in the pulpit who preaches on abortion, Marxism, the destruction of the family unit as state policy, etc. is making Jesus unhappy. Such ministers who preach on these matters are, per R2K, at best unfaithful to Jesus and at worst are going to occupy hell forever. R2K “theology” has taught the clergy to practice functional kulturkampf denialism.
If the above observations about R2K are true (and they are) then we see how R2K with its kulturkampf denialism fits hand in glove with the agenda of the Cultural Marxists. R2K guarantees the success of the Cultural Marxists because the effect of its dogma is to both keep the church asleep or failing that convinces the church that as there is no such thing as Christian culture therefore it should not be exercised about imaginary things called “kulturkampf.” The best friend in the conservative Church in the West that the Cultural Marxists have are the R2K boys at Escondido and now salted in Seminaries all across America.
Culture war denialism, in its broadest expression, is an attempt to pretend that nothing is happening around us as Western Civilization — a grouping of social orders that are immediately downstream of Christianity — is pulled up by its roots. If the denialists say anything about the kulturkampf they merely note in an offhand way that any changes should be supported by Christians because Jesus Loves social justice. God loves everybody, the Kulturkampf denialists tell us, and if we don’t love everybody also then we are haters and deserve to be labeled as “White Supremacists.” Naturally, this means we need to open the sluice gate for the pervert, the feminist, the Marxist Academic, and the minority hordes who have become enchanted and poisoned with Cultural Marxism.
