Nothing Could Possibly Go Wrong

Old Life

In 1872 the Protestant churches in Scotland handed over all their schools to the State on the explicit condition that Scottish State Education should continue to be Christian. From that day on the Scottish Education system (unlike the American one) has officially been Christian. The Catholics, being wiser than the Protestants, didn’t trust the State and so they kept their own schools. Even within living memory most schools in Scotland would have had ‘religious’ worship, school chaplains and bible teaching. The ethos of the schools were largely Christian. But this is now virtually unrecognisable. Secular humanists/atheists have cuckoo like taken over the State education system and are now using Salami tactics (piece by piece) to dismantle the remaining parts of it – crying tolerance and equality in order not to tolerate Christianity and in order to prevent Christians from receiving the equal education that the UN Human Rights charter demands.

    Yes, happened here in Canada. And most ‘Churchianity’ congregations have not uttered a peep.

    Not one. Most are still completely unconscious.

    Christians have been voting to transfer wealth and power to a big secular government
    The church has completely abandoned Christianity for a veneer of virtue signalling and humanistic self aggrandizement.

    And its ugly underneath the smiles.

    Bottom line: among 99.999 percent of those who call themselves “Christians,” the World (and thus the State) is the real God. The churchian rituals and trappings are just gloss, a means of pseudo-sanctifying their world worship. Why else would most Christians eagerly (mis)interpret Romans 13 to be a command to unquestioningly obey the temporal state? “Christians” didn’t have their educational system “stolen” from them; they eagerly gave it over to their (not really) enemy.

    “Christians” have only themselves to blame for the current mess.

    When the Fathers of Confederation put together the framework for the 1867 Dominion the bulk of jurisdictions was given deliberately to Ottawa. Peace, order and good government and then some. The provinces were given reign over matters of a purely local nature: education, marriage, property and civil rights, hospitalization, etc. Over the years the provinces in Canada increased in power and responsibility. Why? Because in years past, these were tasks that were conducted by outside parties, namely by churches. As the churches removed themselves from the public sphere, provincial governments picked up the slack and ran with them.

    Today’s English speaking secular liberalism is nothing more than yesterday’s English speaking non-Conformist Protestantism brought forward, this time without God. Anglo liberalism like Anglo Protestantism – particularly the Calvinistic and Methodist brands – sees salvation as a personal endeavor backed by personal virtue. Add Calvin’s idea of “the elect” and presto, you have smug social justice warriors at every turn. The SJWs merely leave Christ out of the equation.

    Toronto, historically, saw itself as the centre of English Protestant Canada. Today it is at the heart of the Laurentian consensus in Canada. (Similarly Massachusetts in the USA, the land of the Puritans, has a similar influence on America). A hundred years ago the largest parade in the city was the Orange Day parade. Today it’s Gay Pride. One signaled one’s Protestant credentials. The other, one’s progressive credentials.

    Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.

      I’m a Calvinist, and I am nothing like the SJWs. Saying the SJWs merely leave Christ out of the equation is like saying they merely throw the baby out with the bathwater rather than keeping it. Makes all the difference in this world, and the next.

      Other than that, I do in fact actually completely agree with you in your interpretation.

        No disrespect intended. John Calvin and my own Presbyterian forefathers would roll over in their graves with what is happening today. Leaving God out leads invariably to heresies and blasphemes creeping in. It means, as you say, “throwing the baby out with the bath water.”

        But the connection between progressives and Protestants is long standing. Think back to the Temperance Movement.

        It’s also one of the reasons so much of the United Church is converged. Joining Calvinists and Methodists in 1925 was a good idea. A personalized faith armed with the notion of “election” is a powerful mix. Nevertheless, without leadership willing to impose doctrinal constraints the silliness rises to the surface. And rise it has and fast.

        Very sad.

        None taken. And like I said, I otherwise agree with your analysis.

        It’s a case, IMO, of ‘optima corrupta, pessima sunt’. Same as how the Catholic Church in Latin America has embraced liberation theology, and their North American bishops are equally leftist.

        The rot has spread everywhere, ever since the Enlightenment; no tradition is free of it.
