“We make men without chests and expect from them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst.” — C.S. Lewis
It can be hard to find hopeful voices. I found one. Steve Turley started a YouTube channel in 2016. He was encouraged to do so by a friend. Turley had been regaling his friend with analysis about the rise of nationalism and populism all over the world. His friend suggested that he could help many folks if he shared his analysis using the internet.
Turley now produces two ten minute YouTube’s a day. He analyzes current events from his unique hopeful perspective.
So many of us have become glum over the years. That was the biggest reason Maine’s good people faded from the front line of the battle against big sodomy. Thousands of folks worked tirelessly using democratic means to stop the so-called “gay” agenda. Like spoiled teenagers the sodomites and their fellow travelers refused to relent. They are much more dedicated to their “religion” than are Christians. We must shake off our glum stupor and return to the front lines of the culture war.
We must pray for words and actions that will open the eyes/minds of the good people around us to the imminent threat to civilization.
I know this won’t happen unless Men develop their chests, instead of the organ lower down. The passions will not be enough in this war. We need the masculine virtues more than ever.
Lewis prefaced the thought quoted above with, “In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function.” Virtue and enterprise wither under womanishness — feminism … equality. He concludes his quote, “We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.” America is becoming ugly, chaotic and unfruitful as a result of castration. All people must be mentored into the virtues. We must not expect order if we stop teaching, and expecting, the masculine virtues in our boys and men.
I can think of no better example of masculine Christian virtues in political action than the Canadian free speech activist Bill Whatcott. He joined me on my LIVEstream show yesterday morning. He called in from Canada. He was on his way to court. Bill has a brilliant, fearless mind atop a chest full of Christ-inspired love.
Jesus Christ filled his chest with passion for truth about sexual morality. The world’s laws and law enforcement are no match for God’s moral law in Bill’s mind. This attitude toward the world unleashes a comedic brilliance that keeps him on the front page, and in the front of the minds, of God’s enemies in Canada.
Google his name and you’ll see what I mean. Read his autobiography, “Born in a Graveyard,” and you’ll gain important insights into the source of his grit.
Lewis also observed in The Abolition of Man, “You can’t go on ‘seeing through’ things forever. The whole point of seeing through something is to see something through it. To ‘see through’ all things is the same as not to see.”
After choosing Christ as his lawgiver Bill studied human anatomy and health. He earned certification as a nurse. His frontline work on sexual issues is informed by the fact that his nursing education didn’t brainwash him. He saw something through that education. He saw the consequences of a marriageless, fornicating society.
Many today choose the path of seeing through things forever. Hence the capacity of the “gay” movement to continuously add letters to their movement name. Their false appeal to compassion combined with our penchant for seeing through things forever has brought us to drag queen story hour and the Barbara Bush Gender Clinic.
And here is where Steve Turley’s work provides hope. Lewis said, “A great many of those who ‘debunk’ traditional or (as they would say) ‘sentimental’ values have in the background values of their own which they believe to be immune from the debunking process.” Turley is finding evidence all over the world that the values of modernism and post modernism are beginning to undergo a global debunking. He proves, every day on his YouTube channel, that there is a force rising all over the world that is defending tradition by debunking … even ridiculing … the still dominant globalist system of the world.
I conclude with this trenchant observation about education, “For every one pupil who needs to be guarded against a weak excess of sensibility there are three who need to be awakened from the slumber of cold vulgarity. The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles but to irrigate deserts. The right defense against false sentiments is to inculcate just sentiments. By starving the sensibility of our pupils we only make them easier prey to the propagandist when he comes. For famished nature will be avenged and a hard heart is no infallible protection against a soft head.” ― C.S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man
Financial and Travel Update
Thanks to work we are being asked to do that folks are paying us for, and income from renting unused space in our Maine home, and in the home we rent in Mt. Airy, we are barely making it financially. Prayers and donations welcome. Especially right now as we are incurring travel costs. I’m writing to you this morning from a Go Wayside Christian Travel Club home in Virginia. Just twenty dollars gets us overnight lodging and breakfast! At 7 AM we’ll be headed into the heart of darkness, Washington D.C. Watch for our Facebook LIVE broadcast from the steps of the Supreme Court at 10 AM. We’ll travel to the Danbury, Connecticut area later today for an overnight with another wonderful Wayside host. We need gas money. Thanks for helping!
