Easter Worshippers

“Christianity under attack? Sri Lanka church bombings stroke far-right anger in the West”

That was the headline in the Washington Post the day after the world learned the Easter Sunday church bombers were radical Islamist terrorists.

It seems the Post isn’t sure if Christianity is under attack. But it is sure only the “far-right” is upset about the massacre of “Easter worshippers,” as they term them.

Historically, The Left has used perceived persecution to accrue power. So they’re reticent to have Christians benefit from actual persecution, thus they use the label, “Easter worshippers” as if it’s a Spring festival of sorts.

This is how identity politics works and it is at work in the coverage of the slaughter of Christian innocents.

Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and leading Democrats all used “Easter worshippers” language  generating much deserved pushback.

No atrocity is so great as to prevent the Left’s pursuit of power.

Ask Not Why They Did It But What They Serve

Why would the billionaire owner of the NFL’s most successful franchise patronize a brothel?

Why would a successful actor perpetrate a fraud on the nation for a pay raise?

Why would an international music superstar prey on young girls?

Why would they risk everything? What’s in it for them?

Those questions are dead ends in the search for an explanation for this depraved conduct.

To understand why one must ask the question, “What do they serve?”

As with the high-profile cheaters and reprobates before them, R. Kelly and R. Kraft and Smollett are C.S. Lewis’ men without chests.

They are walking pleasure centers seeking only to serve their visceral wants: celebrity, money, carnal release.

They are the byproduct of a culture that celebrates the unrestrained indulgence of one’s appetites over objective truth.

What a society extols it begets. And so we have begotten R. Kelly, R. Kraft and Smollett.
