Wokeism is far more dangerous than secularism By Hedieh Mirahmadi, for Christian Post
GNN Note – If you’re still supporting some of the recent “all woked-up” corporations and just about any pro sports, well, you are the problem. You’re not part of the problem, you are the problem. Stop it, and stop it today. Supporting the people that are obvious agents of the devil seems like a bad plan. Converting them is one thing, funding them is altogether different. /END
Wokeism, which some call the “new” religion of our day, is entirely incompatible with Christian values and, left unchecked, will undermine the foundation of American society. If that sounds hyperbolic, we fail to acknowledge that its very purpose is to do just that.
Originating from Critical Theory, wokeism challenges existing power structures and seeks to dismantle what we see as universal truths. The U.S. is a nation shaped by the principle that “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”. Since the founding fathers were Christians, “the inalienable rights from the Creator” can be further expanded to include God’s vision for man and society as told in the Bible:
I charge you, in the sight of God and Christ Jesus and the elect angels, to keep these instructions without partiality and to do nothing out of favoritism. 1 Timothy 5:21
If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing right. But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers. James 2:8-9
Throughout our history, Americans struggled with achieving these ideals. Still, through fierce debate, social turmoil, and even war, the outcome has been a continuous push towards racial and gender equality, preserving individual liberty and opportunities for economic prosperity. Together, our political leaders, civic activists, and the community have fought to dismantle institutional and legal systems that perpetuated racial or gender disparity. Today, the U.S. is one of the least prejudicial nations on earth.
