The Self-Contradicting Ideology of Feminism

img_2695
I’m always amazed at the self-contradicting ideology of feminism: Women are as tough as men, but if a man treats a woman as harshly as he would a man, he is a misogynistic a-hole. Only half of that ideology can be true, and I would say it’s the latter half.

I’ve heard Douglas Wilson say that feminism has only two tenets: 1) All men are jerks; 2) Women are the same as men.

In the photo we see a graph of how often Trump interrupted Clinton in the three presidential debates. The graph was posted on Facebook by Christian author Michael Frost. He commented, “‘Manterrupting’: unnecessary interruption of a woman by a man. It’s a thing. And one of the world’s greatest manterrupters is running for president. Over 90 minutes of yelling over the top of his opponent, seizing the floor, and interrupting. This guy’s all class.”

Now, I am not going to to defend Trump against charges of rudeness; he obviously comes off as an arrogant jerk most of the time. But, does our friend Frost honestly believe that if Trump’s opponent in this election were a man, he wouldn’t interrupt him just as much, if not more, than he did Hillary?

Does Frost believe that Hillary is a delicate flower, who was somehow able to navigate her way through the harsh political waters over the years making it to the presidential debates, and is unable to handle Trump? Does Frost really believe that Hillary didn’t restrain herself in the debates as a strategy to egg Trump on and make him look all the more misogynistic so that she could play the sexist card? Could Hillary not have been just as aggressive as Trump if she felt it was advantageous to do so?

This is a perfect example of the contradiction in feminism. If feminists want women to be treated like men, but then get offended when they are, their ideology can not stand.

Why Would Any Christian Support Trump?

Prophetic Dream: From Trump to Triumph

It’s interesting — Several years ago, when Bill Clinton was messing around with interns, Christians were (rightfully) angry, and wanted him impeached. Now there is Donald Trump, who appears to be even more morally inferior than Clinton, and yet there are many American Christians who support him. (Although, I would argue that most American Christians do not support Trump.) But why would any Christian support Trump?

Listening to the Trump-supporting Christians lately, I’ve come to this conclusion: 

These Christians are no longer looking to the president to represent them, but are rather now looking to the president to protect them. 

Protect them from what? I’ve also noticed that the Trump-supporting Christians tend to be the Christians who believe the world is going to end in the next ten years or so. And so, they believe life is soon going to be much more difficult for Christians (and there may be some truth to that). But, because of their brand of eschatology, they believe there is no more work to be done, they’ve been rejected, and they see themselves as little more than victims until Jesus comes back. They’re angry as hell, and they’re not going to take it anymore.

They want to usher in the end. Their fascination with Trump is the same as their fascination with disaster movies. Despite the fact that they see Trump as the saviour of America, they really don’t care if Trump destroys the country — that’s really what they want. They see God as a revolutionary, who no longer has any influence in America other than to kill and destroy. They say they want to be triumphant in the current order of things, but secretly wish they won’t be.

If Trump does become president, and if God is behind that, then I believe that will be an act of judgement by God. An act of judgement on the American Church for selling its soul to politics. If God is using Trump, then of course it’ll lead to triumph, just in a very different way than the Trump-supporting Christians think.
