He also told them, “Take care what you hear. The measure with which you measure will be measured out to you, and still more will be given to you.
The great (and toothsome) sinners are made out of the very same material as those horrible phenomena the great Saints.
C. S. Lewis Screwtape Proposes a Toast 1959
Stacy McCain continues to have fun at the expense of the Radfems and the Tranny community as the great war over who is a woman and who is not continues:
Radical feminists (who are mostly lesbian) insist that their conferences must be “women-only” spaces. Radfems exclude transsexuals, viewing them as men trying to enact “feminine” gender roles. Radfems are all about abolishing gender roles, period, yet they are adamant that female is a biological category, and they especially hate “pretendbians” — transsexuals who claim to be lesbians. This is just male aggression, trying to co-opt lesbianism, say the radfems.
I’m probably going to have to go to confession for he degree of laughter I’m having to suppress over these people who managed to intimidate a society & culture into saying that “gender” is a social construct now being “oppressed” by people who have used their tools (no pun intended) against them.
Oh, no, say the radfems: Sarah Brown is not a victim any more than “she” is a lesbian. In fact, say the radfems, Brown is guilty of harassing actual women. Radfems were enraged that Brown was invited as keynote speaker (!) at this month’s Dyke March in London:
Yes, you read that right. Dyke March London, despite having a wealth of actual Lesbians to choose from, decided that a male person who claims to have relationships with women, aka a heterosexual man, was the Best Person to speak at Lesbians gathering in London for Dyke March. . . .
Sarah Brown also tells an actual female (me) and an actual Lesbian (me again) that he is more of a Lesbian than I am . . .
So you had lesbians protesting against the Dyke March
Now given the demographics of England these days in a few decades all of these folks that are still alive will be too busy keeping themselves hidden to avoid being stoned to death, but beyond the threat of radical islam which both side downplay there is one other possibility, however unlikely that is likely to bring terror to them all.
As a Christian all of them on both sides have to be prayed for as a matter of course by us, but while neither side likely believes it there is an almost insidious possibility (at least they would both consider it so) that comes into play when we do.
That possibility comes from their very nature as explained by that master tempter Screwtape concerning the “great sinners”
They are, if things take the wrong turn, as ready to defy the social pressures around them for the Enemy’s sake as they were to defy them for ours.
There was a time where being a lesbian, or a transsexual might have been the height of revolution but in modern Europe and in fact the entire world there is one thing that is so against the grain so rare that it defies every convention that exists.
Being a saint.
To the Christian this entire thesis, sounds absolutely ridiculous the idea that a Gabriel/”Brielle” Harrison a Sarah Brown the staff of Gender Identity watch or even an Amanda Marcotte oould be a saint but consider:
The great sinners seem easier to catch. But then they are incalculable. After you have played them for seventy years, the Enemy may snatch them from your claws in the seventy-first.
Remember Abram was a pagan, Moses killed the Egyptian and hid the body, Matthew was a tax collector, Peter denied Christ three times and Saul held the coats for the people as they stoned Stephen to death.
And if you think these guys hate a Robert Stacy McCain or each other, that will be nothing compared to the reaction and the vitriol that will come if one of them listens to the whisper of the guardian angel in their ear and becomes a mighty warrior for the Lord.
Ah who am I kidding, the idea of one of these people converting, let alone being used to bring people to Christ is as far fetched as a poor young maiden immaculately conceiving a son who would change the course of history.
As the man said
For human beings this is impossible, but for God all things are possible.”
