So I saw this:
Here's my thing. I've been Catholic since 2005, and I have yet to hear the word homosexuality spoken. Not in RCIA. Never in a homily. On occasion I've heard marriage spoken about in where it's framed as a bond is between a man and woman, but that's it. Yet to hear gay activists, you'd think every parish is a gas chamber in which the LGBTQ community is routinely assaulted and terrorized and singled out for suffering and ultimate extermination.
That's one of the modern world's neatest tricks. If you don't worship me as god of my reality, it's the same as saying you want Hitler to come back from the dead and murder me in a gas chamber. With that standard established, how much worse is it if you actually say something, like I'm wrong?
I see black Americans going this way now. I've already written about the dearth of 'Righteous Gentiles of the Civil Rights era' in the black community. That is, no real emphasis given to whites who gave it all for the sake of black liberation. Sometimes I've heard black activists insist no white was ever anything but a racist at heart, no matter what they did.
This sentiment is being fostered today by the Left, and increasingly accepted by the Church. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that I'm seeing black Catholics speak as if every parish is a cotton field existing for the sole purpose of pissing on and oppressing black Catholics. Despite the fact that I have yet to ever come close to experiencing this, and those Catholics I know who are black are as confused about such a sentiment as I am.
The sad fact is, people can be swayed to see the world a certain way, whether it is the correct way or not. It's easier if you are asked to see it in a convenient way. A way that sets you against them. A way that sets you over them. A way in which they are to blame, not you. A way in which, quite frankly, you're the one with a star on your belly and not them. It should come as no surprise to anyone that black Catholics would be among those warming up to the idea of seeing the enemy, and realizing it's all those other Catholics over there. It's the slick and easy way to go in our world today. As it always has been.
