And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. —St. Paul (Romans 12:2)
I wonder what Paul would have said about the recent ‘Beyonce Mass’ at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, where 900 people showed up to attend mass with a liturgy “using the music and social philosophy” of that noted sage and pop star and “female-centric interpretations of the Bible,” blah-blah.
The, er, “church” is proud of its “contemporary culture-themed ministry.” Is this, like, the worst idea that anybody ever had? To conform your church to this world, the untended dumpster of 2018’s pop culture? Yeah, well, it’s one way of fighting “heterosexual aggression,” they say.
Leftids have no concept of the holy, unless you want to think of politics and fomenting culture rot as holy. Imagine needing Jesus Christ and having to settle for Beyonce. If you can think of anything worse than that, don’t let me know.
Liberals always say conservatives mix their religion with their politics and can’t tell the two apart anymore. As is the case 100% of the time, this is projection. You can’t go into a liberal church and find anything transcendent. Only abortion, feminism, race-obsession, far-left politics, and all the rest of the junk and debris of this benighted age. They do what they accuse “the Christian Right” (whoever that may be) of doing; and they do it all the time. They can’t not do it.
They have no king but Caesar.
