Conservative Resurgence Past and Present

Five years ago, Hans Fiene of Lutheran Satire fame wrote an article titled, “Gay Marriage Isn’t About Justice, It’s About Selma Envy.” The article is worth checking out, even though its point differs significantly from that of this post. Fiene wrote:

My generation engages in straw men, misinformation, and lies because, in every year of social studies class, we studied the civil-rights movement not as history, but as hagiography. We didn’t just learn what events happened on American soil, we were encouraged to mimic the segregation-defeating holy ones and merit for ourselves a place alongside them in glory. Combining that admonition with our general aversion to hard work, we concluded that the only thing necessary to be as righteous as the saints who fought racial injustice was to decry an injustice that no one else was. And we became so desperate to find that injustice, we lost our minds in the process.

Fiene proved himself to possess prescience few of us could have understood at the time. Aside from that, Fiene perhaps inadvertently highlighted a tendency found in almost anyone who works toward some cause. I’m talking about a type of hagiographic jealousy. Consider the calls for a modern-day Conservative Resurgence.

Applying Revoice’s Logic to All Sin (Jared Moore)

 

 

Part 1 

in this series shows “that Revoice teaches ‘gay Christians’ to separate their same-sex sexual attraction from their same-sex attraction, and then, to sublimate or turn their same-sex attraction to holiness.”

Part 2

argues “that Revoice’s logic concerning turning same-sex attraction to holiness is unbiblical and absurd, and the absurdity is clearly revealed when their logic is applied to abnormal sexual desires that are more prominent in the population than homosexuality.”

Part 3

shows “that frotteurism cannot be turned to holiness either. And it also shows that sexual desires that are less prominent in the population, like transvestism, cannot be turned to holiness.”

Part 4

shows “that no pattern of sinful desire, whether an unnatural pattern of sexual desire (sexual orientation) like homosexuality or a common sinful pattern of desire like adultery or greed, nothing contrary to God can be turned to holiness.”

Part 5

shows that pride and unrighteous anger are not exceptions and cannot be turned to holiness.

Applying Revoice’s Logic to All Sin, Part 1 (Jared Moore)

In this article, Jared Moore writes that “Much of the error in Revoice’s discussion of same-sex attraction is their treatment of it as a ‘special sin,’ different from other sins. Yet, sinners having orientations does not negate moral culpability.”
