Last night we were discussing the church, for an elder has made it clear that the way that the women are leading is where they think it should go, and that my conservative wish for the old ways is to be left behind. In the middle of this I asked, What is the aim of the church?
The aim of the church is to preach the Gospel. To proclaim Christ’s death and resurrection: to preach his salvation. That is our mission, and we have no other. All other worthy and good things can be done by us pewsitters, and they are of equal value: the first thing a city needs is sanitation, and the skilled trades are of value, the labourers who build and dig have value, and the mothers of children have value.
The gospel is as much of social action as it was of the Judaic law, which is not at all. And when the business of the soyboys (and the women who enable them) suppresses the gospel, we are as one with Galatians.
1Paul an apostle – sent neither by human commission nor from human authorities, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from the dead – 2and all the members of God’s family who are with me,
To the churches of Galatia:
3Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, 4who gave himself for our sins to set us free from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, 5to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.
6I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel – 7not that there is another gospel, but there are some who are confusing you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8But even if we or an angel from heaven should proclaim to you a gospel contrary to what we proclaimed to you, let that one be accursed! 9As we have said before, so now I repeat, if anyone proclaims to you a gospel contrary to what you received, let that one be accursed!
10Am I now seeking human approval, or God’s approval? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still pleasing people, I would not be a servant of Christ.
11For I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel that was proclaimed by me is not of human origin; 12for I did not receive it from a human source, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ.
13You have heard, no doubt, of my earlier life in Judaism. I was violently persecuting the church of God and was trying to destroy it. 14I advanced in Judaism beyond many among my people of the same age, for I was far more zealous for the traditions of my ancestors. 15But when God, who had set me apart before I was born and called me through his grace, was pleased 16to reveal his Son to me, so that I might proclaim him among the Gentiles, I did not confer with any human being, 17nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were already apostles before me, but I went away at once into Arabia, and afterwards I returned to Damascus.
So, what are we to do? Well, we are to live as Christ commands: in love, and we are to accept that we were made by Christ as we are, and this is good. Paul says that God chose him from before creation for one purpose: to preach the gospel to the gentiles, and to go where no man had preached before. Many followed in his example, and those energetic Victorians preached the gospel to the ends of the earth during the time of Empires.
But this is a time where the multinational corporation rules, and it wants us compliant, gelded, and tamed. Paul would never have fitted into this corporate church, which micro-regulates behaviour, celebrates #MeToo and #PrideMonth, so that they will be praised by people. Who have no spine.
Who will not even drink milk, but demand Soy. Who put vegan cards into the tip jar instead of money . Who would disapprove that we traveled a hour to get our dog to surgery yesterday, because he was in so much pain. Who would say that we should have driven electric, and got their late, or should accept and praise those ways the social justice polyamorous live, despite the fact they destroy their lives in the process.
For the elite look at righteousness, and call it hate.
Tradwives also point to the ways that the half-finished work of the sexual revolution has brought about not just male but also female discontents. The likes of pickup artists and incels claim that the sexual revolution has brought about a consequence-free life of pleasure for young women, while socially awkward or unattractive men are left behind. But the existence of tradwives points to a more nuanced reality. Female fears of objectification and sexual violence remain as potent as ever; the tradwife subculture exploits them by blaming modernity for such phenomena, and then offers chastity, marriage and motherhood as an escape. As one such YouTube commentator, a teenager, told her audience, traditionalism does “what feminism is supposed to do” in preventing women from being made into “sexual objects” and treated “like a whore.”
It’s a lie, of course. Modesty has never been a safeguard against degradation or rape, and we know that a rapist is no less likely to hurt a woman simply because he’s married to her. But it’s not difficult to see how it could be a seductive lie; the continuous headlines made by the #MeToo movement, paradoxically, were eagerly shared among tradwife networks, as supposed proof that sexual liberation had made life unacceptably dangerous for women.
At present, these shared dissatisfactions haven’t helped the alt-right recruit significant numbers of women because, quite simply, the men cannot keep their seething misogyny in check.

Ms Kelly is one of the new academics who consider being a political officer of the left a good way to have a career. She is a feminist academic specializing in pearl clutching, pointing at the neoreactionaries, and calling them Nazis. The policies she has have not worked. The risk young women have is now greater, for the patriarchy had one main rule: to police the male of the species.
And it is better to not feel guilt for what is not sin.
There is nothing wrong with 1. Within race/ethnicity sexual and reproductive preference. 2. Wanting to have children, naturally with your spouse (and therefore sharing genetic material and looks with them). 3, Carefully approaching and revisiting previous generations religious and moral values (which were completely thrown out by boomers–thanks mom and dad!) and trying to re-introduce them to your offspring before demographics dooms your heritage and progeny.
if you have engaged in any of these behaviors, you have not done anything wrong.
These people are now grasping at straws calling literally everything they disagree with “white supremacy.”
The gospel is our prime mission. Our churches are in the peoples and tribes and nations of this earth, and in each nation, tribe, and people we call for a return to Christ.
This elite? Do not be them. Do not live like them. Do not ally with them. It is God you should fear. For they will soon be gone.
