Bleak Theology: Hopeful Science

The profitability of greyness.

Overnight there has been an earthquake on the Iran/Iraq border. About a seven: the death toll could be in the hundreds. The last earthquake we had around that level has a repair budget of 1.2 billion dollars, and the main road north, destroyed, is almost repaired a year later.

But that is not what is concerning the UK. It is fitting children into the narrative of Babylon.

In the guidance, the archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, warns that homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying causes “profound damage leading to higher levels of mental health disorders, self-harm, depression and suicide”.

The advice adds: “Pupils need to be able to play with the many cloaks of identity (sometimes quite literally with the dressing-up box). Children should be at liberty to explore the possibilities of who they might be without judgement or derision.

“For example, a child may choose the tutu, princess’s tiara and heels and/or the fireman’s helmet, toolbelt and superhero cloak without expectation or comment.”

It adds: “Children should be afforded freedom from the expectation of permanence. They are in a ‘trying on’ stage of life, and not yet adult and so no labels need to be fixed. This should inform the language teachers use when they comment, praise or give instructions. It may be best to avoid labels and assumptions which deem children’s behaviour irregular, abnormal or problematic just because it does not conform to gender stereotypes or today’s play preferences.”

The church said that the aim of the guidance was to “prevent pupils in Church of England schools and academies from having their self-worth diminished or their ability to achieve impeded by being bullied because of their perceived or actual sexual orientation or gender identity.”

The guidance also acknowledges a wide range of views among all beliefs towards same-sex marriage, saying: “Central to Christian theology is the truth that every single one of us is made in the image of God. Every one of us is loved unconditionally by God.

“We must avoid, at all costs, diminishing the dignity of any individual to a stereotype or a problem.”

Welby added: “This guidance helps schools to offer the Christian message of love, joy and the celebration of our humanity without exception or exclusion.”

LGBT charity Stonewall welcomed the guidance and congratulated the church for sending a “clear signal that homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying must never be tolerated”.

One of the reasons that Babylon exists and is supported is that it is well funded and profitable. The Anglicans have been lobbied by some very rich and perverted people, and they have succumbed[1].

You can connect Donne, Lewis and the Elizabethan Martyrs to the national grid. They are rotating in their graves. Rapidly. Note that the kings have been subverted by their sexual perversions, the merchants by greed, and many by glamour.

Revelation 18:9-20

9And the kings of the earth, who committed fornication and lived in luxury with her, will weep and wail over her when they see the smoke of her burning; 10they will stand far off, in fear of her torment, and say, 
     “Alas, alas, the great city, 
          Babylon, the mighty city! 
     For in one hour your judgment has come.”

11And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn for her, since no one buys their cargo anymore, 12cargo of gold, silver, jewels and pearls, fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet, all kinds of scented wood, all articles of ivory, all articles of costly wood, bronze, iron, and marble, 13cinnamon, spice, incense, myrrh, frankincense, wine, olive oil, choice flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, slaves — human lives. 
14  “The fruit for which your soul longed 
          has gone from you, 
     and all your dainties and your splendor 
          are lost to you, 
          never to be found again!” 
15The merchants of these wares, who gained wealth from her, will stand far off, in fear of her torment, weeping and mourning aloud, 
16  “Alas, alas, the great city, 
          clothed in fine linen, 
               in purple and scarlet, 
          adorned with gold, 
               with jewels, and with pearls! 
17  For in one hour all this wealth has been laid waste!” 
  And all shipmasters and seafarers, sailors and all whose trade is on the sea, stood far off 18and cried out as they saw the smoke of her burning, 
     “What city was like the great city?” 
19And they threw dust on their heads, as they wept and mourned, crying out, 
     “Alas, alas, the great city, 
          where all who had ships at sea 
          grew rich by her wealth! 
     For in one hour she has been laid waste.”

20Rejoice over her, O heaven, you saints and apostles and prophets! For God has given judgment for you against her.

One more point: Babylon is cosmopolitan. It is multiracial, multicultural. This acts as an accelerant towards corruption. What tends to happen is that people live in little ghettos: self segregated by speech and tribe, because it is much more comfortable to live with people like yourself.

But there is more money in making us uniform. In the current narrative of diversity. For the merchants do not see that the foundations of the markets they rely on are crumbling.

  1. The death rate for homosexuals is high, and for transsexuals appallingly high. But that is a consequence of their instability of personality. They have no foundation. It is not bullying: it is the vice that destroys.

One thought on "The profitability of greyness."

  • So, kids need no guidance at all. No direction from adults, no censure for “bad” behavior. No sense of right or wrong.

    Sounds about right. Please get me off this crazy ride.So live not as the narrative demands, and find sanity
