“One has to belong to the intelligentsia to believe things like that: no ordinary man could be such a fool.”
We live in a low, dishonest time when powerful forces in our society seek to have us render obeisance to self-evident lies, and those who dare speak the truth are shouted down. Nowhere is this more the case than in the area of sex, where the central dividing line of humanity, that God made us man and woman, is taken to be an artificial construct, and that we may choose our “gender identity” and that others should be forced, at peril of losing jobs, draconian fines and imprisonment, to treat as gospel truth this manifest absurdity. Times of deep decadence usually are ages of entrenched mendacity, but our time outdoes all the preceding examples of such folly by politicizing basic biology. 43 years ago Solzhenitsyn in the old Soviet Union penned an essay, Live Not by Lies. Go here to read it. Let that be our motto. We must have courage that truth will prevail and refuse to cower before lies, even if the rest of the world is shouting the falsehoods. Let us take courage from the fact that right makes might and that God, Truth Incarnate, will ever be with us in our struggle. Besides, our adversaries are fools at war with reality, and reality has a way of winning in the end.
