The pseudo-morality of the Left is a direct response to the moral challenge created by Christianity. The Christian message of redemption and inner peace is enormously powerful when it can be expressed clearly. The purpose of pseudo-morality is to create noise to cover up that powerful message:
“They talk about love but they hate gay people! We are so tolerant that we can’t even see a difference between random acts of sodomy and marital intimacy.”
“They talk about freedom but they want to enslave women! We want women to be free to choose no matter the cost to innocents.”
“They talk about joy but they want you to show self control! We want you to do whatever makes you happy, even if it involves your neighbor’s wife.
“They talk about personal responsibility but they are destroying the planet! We want to save the planet by making everyone live like cavemen.”
“They talk about wisdom but they don’t believe in science! We couch everything we say in scientific terms. We’re so smart!”
The Left mimics and distorts Christian morality in order to defeat Christianity. They substitute tolerance for love, self-indulgence for freedom, temporary pleasure for joy, government control for personal responsibility, and sophistry for wisdom.
It is sad how effective this strategy has been.
