Happy Hour News Briefs
I bet you’ll never guess that such a positive and affirming message for transpeople could possibly get the Xristians upset, amiright?!
Anyway, David Lane, who is the founder of American Renewal Project, is very, Very, VERY upset:
The abandonment of the public square by those holding to the Judeo-Christian faith has enabled secularism’s enchanters and warlocks to impose pagan values on the American culture over the last 100 years.
Warlocks? You mean like Uncle Arthur?
In large part the debasement of the mores and manners is the consequence of increasing secular control and misuse of the cultural levers of influence—for example, education, academia, mass media, courts, Big Business, Fortune 500, Hollywood and others. Christian spirituality and the sacred are invariably belittled, whereas sin is consistently exalted and normalized over every communication medium by corporate America’s advertising dollars.
Oh, dear. Maybe what is being belittled is yourself, you know, when you try to gin up witches and warlocks to dehumanize your fellow mankind and to rile up the orcs and minions to attack.
Sprite’s latest commercial glamorizes and idealizes transgender people—those who are troubled with the psychological difficulties of gender dysphoria. (To watch the Sprite commercial, go to youtube.com and search for “Pride – Sprite.”) [Ed. Note: He won’t deign to link to it hisself? Jeebus, what a sanctimonious scold. –TG]
It might not be so surprising since the word “sprite” denotes an enchanter, goblin or demon.
You did it again.
Look we can stop right here, of course Lane is othering an already marginalized people and calling for a boycott of Sprite (and all of Coca-Cola’s products) unless they stop affirming all people. He seems to be under the impression that the Constitution only applies to Xristians (really, he says that, taking a quote from John Adams out of context), and you know, one could never be both trans and a Xristian, so therefore, no civil rights for you.
