Horrible events have been taking place over the last year or so that have been electronically pushed into our social media streams. It seems as if each event is worse than the previous one with grotesque images of grown men dancing in women’s underwear in front of small children. As I am sure you already know, it is called Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH).
With every new video that comes through social media, normal conservative men and women are both horrified and compelled to try and do something about stopping the next DQSH in their area.
DQSH basically follows the same prescriptions as Marxist Herbert Marcuse had prescribed in his book, Eros and Civilization:
“The psychoanalytic liberation of memory explodes the rationality of the repressed individual. As cognition gives way to re-cognition, the forbidden images and impulses of childhood begin to tell the truth that reason denies.”
The relatively new movement called “Christian Nationalism” has sensed the collective anger in regard to DQSH and has attempted to place the ending of DQSH at the forefront of their efforts to attract new supporters for their political and ecclesial ambitions.
As repulsive as DQSH is for our society, is the Church missing something in what appears to be a myopic call to jump into Christian Nationalism as the cure-all for this provocative event?
The fact is, the Church has done very little to correct its own issues that are somewhat related to the same root problem: Marxism. In the Church, we have experienced the Marxification of Christianity, and yet, no one seems to be in a hurry to remove the spectre of Marxism from the Church.
So what is the right path for the Church to take?
