Wilson, Marshwiggles, & White Boy Summer

In C. S. Lewis’ book, “The Silver Chair,” there is a section where Jill, Eustace, and Prince Rilian are in a secluded room. Prince Rilian (the Black Knight) is tied to the Silver Chair so that he will not be able to fight against the Witch’s spell she has upon him and so return to the sanity of becoming again who he really is apart from the Witch’s enchantment upon him. It is the only time when his sanity returns to him and so he is tied in a silver chair until the memory passes. As the witch’s spell fades and Prince Rilian’s memory awakens he begins to implore Eustance and Jill to release him from the chair, even invoking the name of Aslan in order to do so. The witch arrives to find Puddleglum, Eustace, and Jill, fumbling with the ropes that keep the Prince restrained in the attempt to free him while the Prince himself is raging against the black arts of the witch.

The witch seeing all this begins to cast a spell upon everyone in the room in the hopes that her enchantment will end the crisis. She knows if Prince Rilian gets out of that chair she is a dead witch. The enchantment begins to work and Eustace, Jill, and Prince Rilian begin to go back to sleep, fading again as under her spell.

However Puddleglum,  the brave Marshwiggle, throws himself on the fire in the room to the end that the smell of charred Marshwiggle is so nasty as to counter the Witch’s effort at re-casting the spell thus ending the beguiling of Lewis’s heroes followed by the slaying of the Witch and the escape from the underworld where they were trapped.

As I view all the troubles that Doug Wilson is having with trying to put people back to sleep on the Kinism issue this is the scenario that keeps popping into my head. Wilson is the Witch whose spell is no longer working upon sundry white boy Prince Rilians. The long despised Kinists are the Jills and Eustaces doing all they can to release the white boys from their silver chairs. The Puddleglums are anyone who has paid the price for trying to end the enchantment.

Wilson, of course, in this analogy, is the Witch. As a result of this great awakening of the Prince Rilian White Boys that is happening before him he is redoubling his efforts to put everyone back to sleep with his spells, enchantments, (and even tantrums). However, Wilson’s problem now is that he is in a room the size of Texas full of Marshwiggles and none of them are interested in letting anybody go back to their non-based dogmatic slumbers. Prince Rilian and the White Boys are going to be released.

Wilson’s spell, and the spell of the rest of the witchy leadership of Evangelicalism and the “Reformed” church has been broken and Doug himself needs to awaken to the fact that nobody is ever going back to sleep. We now know that on this issue he is the enemy.  We now know that he has kept us in an Underworld that only desires to see the destruction of the Christian white man. We now know that Dougie has been keeping the Prince Rilian white boys under his spells only to serve his desired ends. We now know that on this issue (and its a big one) he is working against the will of Aslan and the Emperor across the sea.

Keep trying to cast your spells Dougie … your ability of putting people back to sleep has been ended by WHITE BOY SUMMER.
