So let us now write about pronouns. The cultural pressure is mounting, and will soon become a fiery wall of persecution. Well, it won’t be that intense, but it will be intense enough to roll right over our Christian intelligentsia, whose lifetime pocket promise verse appears to be “ye have not yet resisted unto blood.” (Heb. 12:4).
There are many levels where an objection to the regnant dottiness could be registered. For the most trivial example, the newly selected gender neutral pronouns are themselves dumb and stupid, which really ought to have been considered. I mean, seriously? The offenders are “ze,” “hir,” “hirs,” “zir,” “zirs,” “xem,” and “xyr.” Rather than accomplish gender equality for all, this is just trying to get us all to mock German tourists trying to order exotic dishes in a sushi bar. Far from bringing in healing, we are just going to deepen the hurt and misunderstanding.
You ask if I jest? Well, okay. That is not where the real action is, of course. Rebellious man wants to lay claim to the entire cosmos, and he wants to do it by hijacking the language. God made the world through the Word, and so if man wants to steal the world, he must first attempt to steal all the words. You can’t get into the box without the keys, and the words are the keys. Thus far they reason correctly, but they are about to find out that getting into the box and determining the contents of the box are not the same thing.
So what is our duty? Let us begin by appealing to Orwell. “In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
What I want to do here is anticipate a temptation that will come upon the Christian world, and it will appear to have come from nowhere. In reality, the temptation will have been long in the making. We will be tempted to think that a good testimony before the world will consist in adapting ourselves to their way of speaking. We will think that it is a sin to give offense to Bruno by calling him a he instead of a zot. and we will not think it is a sin to give offense to God by joining in with their revolt against all that is decent, wholesome, and good. In short, our temptation will be to fear man, and not to fear God.
The secularist prigs set these pronouns in front of us, and demand conformity. Nobody demands conformity like a liberal. They are already rolling out proposed fines for those who refuse to anoint their gender delusions with delusional pronouns. Liberals love liberty the way Stalin loved Jeffersonian democracy. Liberals love liberty the way rabbis love ham sandwiches.
There is no way to deal with this appropriately except by a straight up collision. We need valor in our midst, and it has to stop being the kind of valor found in Ambrose Bierce’s telling illustration.
‘Why have you halted?’ roared the commander of a division at Chickamauga, who had ordered a charge: ‘move forward, sir, at once.’
‘General,’ said the commander of the delinquent brigade, ‘I am persuaded that any further display of valor by my troops will bring them into collision with the enemy.’”
