Vox Popoli: Running and hiding is not the only option (for Christians)

Even nice, fastidious cucks like Rod Dreher are beginning to grasp that the remorseless Alt-Right is fast becoming the only real option for the sane and civilized:

Now, normalizing drag queens for children is the big woke thing. We’ve had Drag Queen Story Hours in libraries nationwide. Now Netflix is turning drag queens into animated superheroes, and RuPaul’s streaming service is turning drag queens into child superheroes.

Note well that Lactatia was photographed above at beloved drag queen RuPaul’s recent drag convention.

Can’t you see what’s happening?

You might think — I certainly hope you think — that your child will not be exposed to this filth. The thing is, your child, and all of us, have to live in a world in which this is normal, and in which the popular culture thinks that dressing little boys up like sexually provocative women is not only permissible, but a sign of cultural progress....

This is what I’m trying to convey in The Benedict Option.  Withdraw from this decadent culture, build ourselves up, teach those who are willing to be taught, and then build our versions of abbeys, to which Christians struggling in the world can rely on to form their own children.

If not now, you conservative Christian readers, then when? What’s it going to take for you to get serious?

God never told us to be tolerant of wickedness in our midst, or to run away, hide, and hope it leaves us alone. He told us to eliminate it. Moderates like Rod are barely able to denounce it, or to do so without trying to distance themselves from those who will not tolerate this. That's why fewer and fewer people are listening to the moderates anymore.

Toleration of evil means eventual submission to it. And the only limits that evil ever recognizes are those that are imposed on it. Tolerance has failed. Conservatism has failed. Moderation has failed. And no amount of harrumphing, posturing, bowtie-twiddling, and bafflegabbling can conceal those failures any longer.
