The Church Of Cuck

Back in the salad days of Buckley Conservatism, it was largely understood that the butch wing of the coalition was the so-called religious right. These were the people willing and able to muster big crowds for pro-life marches and organize grassroots support for local candidates. The free market types and foreign policy hawks lived on campus and in the bureaucracy. As a result, they were always nice and polite, apologizing to the Left behind closed doors, over their alliance with those disgusting dirt people in the Bible Belt.

That was a long time ago in a different country. Official Conservatism no longer has a religious right and they no longer care about social issues. National Review, the flagship publication of “movement conservatives” is edited by a homosexual activist who champions the gay agenda on the site. Occasionally, someone from this crowd will make some noises about social issues, but it is mostly nostalgia. Like Boomers listening to the oldies station, Gentry Conservatives will talk about abortion to be reminded of better days.

It’s not just a matter of the Official Right dropping social issues and social conservatives from their thing. It’s more that the religious right has become infected by the same parasites as the rest of the old Reagan coalition. In the 1980’s, Christian organizations decided to fully join the political system and as a result they became political organizations themselves. This opened them up to infiltration by the same sorts of people who animate the diseased corpse that is the academy. The religious right is now full of cucks.

This week, while campaigning in an Alabama church — as a Bible-believing Christian, I’ll note that this story is already off to a questionable start — Judge Roy Moore, the state’s embattled Republican Senate candidate, faced down a rather spirited heckler. “The entire time, all the girls are lying?” the man shouted, right before he was escorted out of the event. “Why would they lie?” If you’ve been following our very depressing national news cycle, you know the story: Moore, age 70, has faced multiple accusations of sexual misconduct dating back four decades, two of them involving underage girls, including one alleged assault of a fourteen-year-old. No charges have been filed, and that’s unlikely to change; the statute of limitations on any potential crimes stemming from the allegations appears to have long ago expired. Moore, for his part, argues that his accusers are part of a coordinated hit job orchestrated by Washington-establishment insiders. “They don’t want to hear about God,” he declared this week. “And they don’t want to hear about the Constitution of the United States and its foundational principles in God.”

We’ll get back to the Constitution — and Moore’s understanding of it — in a moment. But for now, let’s hear what the pastor of the church said, his doughy chin raised high, once the heckler had been neatly dispatched: “I would remind everyone,” he sniffed, “that this is a worship service.”

The opening two paragraphs reads like something you would find in Mother Jones or The Nation. It is the sort of framing that the Cult of Modern Liberalism has used against Christians for generations.

I’ll get this out the way: If you’re in Alabama and you want to vote for Roy Moore, vote for Roy Moore. But let’s at least try to keep things real: If you vote for Moore, you’re doing it because he’s not a Democrat, rather than because he’s some holy soldier on a special mission for God.

I would be willing to wager that the first draft of this was something like, “If you’re voting for Roy Moore, you’re doing it because he is not a Democrat. Just don’t call yourself a Christian.” That was the tone of the piece and the underlying message. To come right out and say it would require something resembling courage and that’s a mortal sin in the land of the cuck. After all, the merchant wing of the movement is going to be peddling Jesus themed wine and cheese baskets as part of the next fundraiser.

The fact is, there can be no interpretation of the events in Alabama that would lead a committed Christian to support the Democrat over Moore. Moore is staunchly opposed to abortion. The Democrat is willing to install Planned Parenthood approved abattoirs in the nation’s grammar schools. Even the most isolated  “Bible-believing Christian” can understand the difference between a venal sin and a mortal sin. Moore’s sins, whatever they were, are trivial, compared to supporting wholesale baby murder.

In fairness to “Bible-believing Christians”, the authoress of the NR piece is just some bubble-head hired to write down what she is told. Still, many of the people now claiming the mantle of leadership in the religious right are more concerned with their relationship to Washington than their relationship with Jesus. That’s because party politics is always about compromise. If you choose to get in bed with one party or the other, you are going to get up with their fleas, or worse. That’s what happened to the religious right and the GOP.

The Southern Baptist Convention being overrun by howling lunatics is the most recent example. A generation ago, the sorts of people hooting about white supremacy would have burst into flames if they walked into a Baptist church. Today, they feel perfectly comfortable walking the halls of their well appointed offices of the SBC. It’s because the people in charge now feel more at home with Progressive loons than they do with the people in the pews of their own churches. These churches are run by cucks now.

It goes back to the old line from Robert Conquest. “Any organization not explicitly right-wing sooner or later becomes left-wing.” In the case of American churches, they stopped being explicitly Christian. Once they diluted their purpose by getting into politics, they were made vulnerable to infiltration by Progressives, who naturally seek to corrupt the organic institutions of a society. Once the religious right went exclusive with Northern conservatives, they were open to infiltration by Northern Liberals.

“Official Conservatism no longer has a religious right and they no longer care about social issues.”

Oh, but they do! They are just not the social issues that true conservatives support. “Official Conservatism” has no problem with the LGBQTUVWXYZ agenda, anti-White racism, support for whatever vaginal discharge the feminist movement is promoting this week, or with gun control. No, “Official Conservatism” is full SJW. Never go full SJW.

I’m seeing more and more independent churches around. I wonder if that is not the response to all of these church hierarchies being infiltrated by the progs. If there is no organization to corrupt, then you can’t be corrupted.

I would also guess there are more independent churches in the rural areas too.

Five churches within a couple of miles of me, on the outskirts of a town of < 12,000 in a rural southern county. Four of them are nondenominational. But not all denominations are completely pozzed. While I am not a believer, I listen to the thoughtful daily internet podcast news commentary of Albert Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is also broadcast around here on one of the three Christian radio stations.

El B & S. C.; My personal observation from my part of the world is that you’re both right. New independent churches spring up in unlikely venues such as school auditoriums, theaters, strip malls, etc. Old and young people attend. Some fail and some grow out of their unlikely venue and take over now-unused mainline church buildings. Some few eventually build their own mega-edifices. The pastors are largely non-denominational. There are many non-denominational seminaries about that offer an acceptable level of training. If a man has call to ministry, he’ll get ‘enough’ training.

Evangelicalism and non-denominational Protestantism sprang up at the turn of the 20th century due to the collapse of mainline Protestantism. Presbyterianism – until its demise in the early 20th century documented by J. Gresham Machen *in “CHristianity and Liberalism” – was the dominant religion in the country. Recall that Calvinists were the first settlers of North America. The Southern Baptist Convention supposedly never turned ‘liberal’ in the sense that the PCUSA did. It always held to the inerrancy of Scripture. Now, the SBC led by Russell Moore and others is getting on board with SJW causes. If D. Martin Lloyd-Jones… Read more »

I am now flirting with Christianity (I have never been remotely religious before, and was raised in a liberal family). My wife already got baptized in a small chapel outside of town. Their religion is based on the Bible, and the idea that the Bible says what it means and means what it says.

I’m doing alright, D. Here’s the way I see it, as a piker from the pew: Christians, by their Maker are commanded to be humble, and not to judge others harshly lest they be judged unfairly themselves. That’s the entry point for SJW’s; they’ve perverted that to mean ‘Don’t judge others’. The Bible doesn’t say that; anyone that has read it knows that the Bible insists that people use judgement. That wedge turned into a massive breach and we started getting tripe like “Love the sinner, hate the sin…”. There’s a fine line between loving sinners, and enabling and encouraging… Read more »

Glen;
Delighted to her that you are on the right path as shown by your humility. But neither you nor I can ‘fix’ our past sins or change our inherently sinful nature by ourselves. It’s hopeless, we can’t.

But there’s great news. We don’t have to. All we need to do is accept the free gift of Christ’s finished work of atonement on the cross on our behalf: Accept His unconditional offer to cast all our sins on Him.

Once you do this, you will find it incredibly freeing, like stepping into a new dimension.

I can verify that phenomenon- not that someone forgives you, but that you find it in you to forgive yourself. Heady and exhilerating, every breath a prayer of thanks, every sight, gratitude, as if I were an empty vessel suddenly filled with pouring release. Lasted about six hours. Christians have often witnessed about the sense of freedom they feel after that the burdens are lifted from their shoulders. Don’t know how to trigger or replicate it, as various religious phenomena seems rather hit-and-miss. Practice would help, I’m sure. That and group practice, the shekinah.

You are right about SJWs encouraging sin. By promoting Marxism and discontent – both violations of the 10th commandment – they are calling good evil and evil good which is a heinous sin.

Read the Bible daily. Read it from the perspective of the Author. Too many Christians do not follow the Word, and accept a man’s version of what God wrote, rather than God’s version. I was once asked, “Which version of the Bible should I believe?” I said, “God’s.” The Book was written by God, period. If you don’t believe that, then your faith is like the shallow seed and will wither fast, or you will be derailed into heresy.

That is exactly why there are more independent churches. Many of the denominations are directly contradicting scripture and their focus is forever on the ghastly praise bands and whatever the current social issue is. Want to change all references in the Bible from “Him” to “Her”? Want to show how open the church is to supporting homosexuality? These denominations are happy to spend entire sermons and bible studies showing how God and the Bible actually support these things.

The Evangelicals never had the numbers or funds to elect one of their own guys to high office. But they did have the moral high ground among white Christians & plenty of zeal.
So no Republicans could get elected without getting their approval.
That veto power position is the next phase for the Alt Right.
Already any Cuckservative running on the usual GOPe anti-American globalist faggotry will have a very tough time getting through their primary, much less general.

As a Baptist Sunday School teacher, keep in mind that Jesus had zero (0) to do with politics, which is all the flesh. (Matt 4:8-9)

Pretty broad brush strokes there… No argument that many conservative Christians and Christian churches have pursued political solutions to moral problems, and have gotten the results – had they been more circumspect – that you would expect: this has gone nowhere good. The mainline churches are a lost cause; more conservative Christians are beginning to wake up the fact that the political realm is completely secular and intractably hostile, and ultimately the blowback against their political involvement will be far worse than the original problems they hoped to solve by getting involved in the political process. The only battle left… Read more »

Wouldn’t surprise me if the same rural / urban split shows up amongst the Southern Baptists, where many of the rural churches affiliated with the SBC, decide to withdraw and go independent. The SBC after all, is a loose federation of churches that can pretty much leave whenever they want. It’s not top-down like the Catholics, where it’s all vertically integrated.

There has been considerable discussion of alt-right vs. libertarianism in this blog. The way I see it, there is two kinds of libertarianism. The first is what I call political libertarianism. The second (which is more relevant to me) is what I call personal libertarianism, which is essentially where I have the freedom to live the life I want in terms of my career choices, whither I choose to have kids or not, where I go on holiday, and how I manage my physical self (e.g. DIY biohacking, home-based gene therapies, radical life extension, etc,).

Proper libertarianism, 10th Amendment solutions or Constitutionalism, apparently can only work in a white majority.

Blank slate is where libertarianism (and conservatism) went wrong. Equality under the law doesn’t hold in a nepotistic or tribal society. A tragedy of the commons occurs.

(Also, the borders are not a 10th Amt matter- tarians shouldn’t support globalism, especially since Senators no longer represent their state (17th Amt) against the Feds.)

It’s either blank slate or biological realism-

I get your point about immigration. I might even agree with it. However, that was not the question I asked. Since you did not directly answer my question, I will take you comment as suggestion that alt-right is specifically a political thing that concerns itself with issues such as immigration, borders, and the like. As such, I am going to assume that the alt-right, being inherently political, is completely orthogonal and irrelevant with regards to my personal choices and, more specifically, my strategic long term choices.

Trump should go hot and heavy against the (usually Lutheran) so called Christian organizations sponsoring immigration from the Middle-East/Africa.
Every immigrants crime should be traced back to the sponsoring organization, they should be held accountable to the letter of the law i.e. that the immigrant will not become a ward of the state, no further sponsoring should be allowed, the leaders should be visibly picked up on the steps of their churches and the local cops should start posting pictures of the sponsors and sponsees along with the crimes they are jointly responsible for.

That’s what the left would do.

I know an Army Chaplain who teaches at West Point. He started raving about how white evangelicalism is opressing blacks. White evangelicalism apparently meaning all churches and traditions familiar to Christians for generations. The very act of going to church embraces racism and all those crackers need to hit the streets for BLM I guess.

I’m not sure if I’m more embarrassed for the Army or the church for having such a raving lunatic associated with them.

Robert Conquest’s famous adage, while quite true, as events show, is also a kind of cancellation of the ideas that inspire a Christian perspective on life. When applied to churches, the dictum should read “any Christian community not explicitly Christian sooner or later becomes explicitly left-wing.” Leftism isn’t a point of view as such; it has no doctrines that can be written down and consulted like scripture (distinguishing it, I might add, from classical Marxism, which can be studied and analyzed).

I have no problem with “all men are created equal” and should have equal opportunity. The leftists extend that to government mandated equality of results, which inevitably leads to the gulag.

The “philosophy” is OUR philosophy – turned upon us, exaggerated, distorted and weaponized. Marxist progressivism (previously known as liberalism) purposely uses the beliefs of the Judeo-Christian West against itself. Read Alinsky.

Some examples:
– The fundamental equality of mankind – which leads to a political doctrine of equal opportunity – has been distorted into an impossible demand for equal outcomes.

– The quasi-Judeo-Christian sounding, self-righteous slogans such as “No human being is illegal” that is used to sidestep realistic discussions.

This is how postmodernism made such destructive headway before its motives were noticed.

In a way the cucked church is the result of the moral majority stuff. The MM bought the liberal argument that it’s OK to use government to get things done that are not the essential business of government. Once that idea got into the mainstream of evangelical thought, that particular tenet remained while the churches drifted leftward. Now the former right wing churches are leftist, and the idea of using government to impose salvation remains.

Why is Christianity so screwed up in the Occident, yet muscular once you get past the Atlanticist block and examine Greek and Russian Orthodox Christianity? One theory I’ve heard is that because Luther created a schism (when attempting his reform) he undermined not just the existing church, but the whole religion (regardless of his intent). In this reading, Luther is basically using proto-critical theory to wreck Christianity (which may be a stretch).

Modern Christianity sowed the seeds of its own destruction when it went all-in at becoming a universal faith, rather than sticking to its core congregation of European people. The theological and intellectual compromises necessary to welcome into the faith everyone from polygamous African tribesmen to Buddhist Asians have so diluted the core tenants of the faith that there’s little serious theology left in the faith.

“Most mainline Protestant churches are, to one degree or another, post-Christian. If they no longer seem disposed to converting the unbelieving to Christ, they can at least convert them to the boggiest of soft-left clichés, on the grounds that if Jesus were alive today he’d most likely be a gay Anglican bishop in a committed relationship driving around in an environmentally friendly car with an “Arms are for Hugging” sticker on the way to an interfaith dialogue with a Wiccan and a couple of Wahhabi imams.” ― Mark Steyn
