The Hypocrisy of the Modern World

by Nicholas Senz, Crisis Magazine:

[…]  The Google memo controversy is just one example of how we are told that we must be tolerant and accepting, allowing all viewpoints and ways of life to be expressed and lived… unless your viewpoint or way of life conflicts with the dominant themes of secular society, in which case you will be publicly pilloried, your livelihood and reputation threatened.

We are told that God is, as a recent incarnation of Sherlock Holmes put it, “a ludicrous fantasy designed to provide a career opportunity for the family idiot,” by the same people who very seriously suggest the possibility that we are all living in a Matrix-style simulation.

We are told that the child in the womb is not a human person, but it already has its sexual orientation firmly cemented, but not its gender identity. (This is a metaphysically incoherent set of positions, but, we are told, metaphysics was destroyed by the Enlightenment philosophers, though we aren’t told exactly how they allegedly accomplished this feat.)

We are told that to be healthy we must sacrifice, discipline ourselves, that we must effectively be athletes in training (or, in Greek, ascetics): no saturated fat, no high fructose corn syrup, stay away from carbohydrates and gluten, no GMOs or pesticide-laden crops—instead, eat large quantities of kale and sustainably-harvested saltwater fish, and you will live forever. In fact, they say, we ought to tax or outright ban certain foods that are less than healthy, and suddenly the price of your large soda goes up 12 percent. But any suggestion that other appetites might need to be curbed or controlled—that, say, the sexual appetite, which affects not only the health and well-being of the parties involved but also has the awesome potential to bring new human beings into the mix—is met with howls of “Keep the government out of my bedroom!” When asked why the government should be allowed into your kitchen but not into your bedroom, they will only scoff.
