Disney Unveils First Openly Gay Character…Here’s Why They’re Getting Slammed By the Left

Published

on

It’s funny that so many people on the left like to slam the “religious right” for being so legalistic and judgemental. While Christians tend to believe that we’re all sinners who have fallen short of the glory of God and are in need of a Redeemer who will save us by Grace alone, identity politicians have an intricate hierarchy of virtue based on varying degrees of “marginalized” people and the right of those to say or do certain things.

All this is to say that people on the left are far more legalistic and religious than those on the right will ever be, particularly when you consider there’s not even an end to their dramatic displays of virtue signaling and faux outrage.

They seem to simply be competing for who can be the most offended or claim possession of the most victim cards, and this is definitely a contest in which everyone gets a trophy. Yet no one ever seems to be satisfied.

One of the recent losers in this competition is Disney, who clearly thought they’d nailed a PC win when they decided to unveil their first official openly gay character…and subsequently got slammed for it.

You see, the LGBT community can’t be happy with this landmark role in a Disney film…because the character is just too cliche.

A source told The Sun that British comedian Jack Whitehall will be playing the character, who will be “hugely effete, very camp and very funny.” Whitehall is not only playing a pretty sterotypical homosexual man, the actor himself is at the very bottom rung of the intersectional caste system: the dreaded straight, white, cisgender male. 

The horror!

Sky News reports:

Omar Sharif Jr, son of the late Oscar-nominated Egyptian actor, asked Disney on Twitter: “Your first significant gay role will be played by a straight white man perpetuating stereotypes? Fail! This ship should sink.”

Fellow actor Chris Salvatore told Disney to “do better”, adding: “Such a dam [sic] shame it’s so hard to find gay actors to play gay roles in Hollywood.”

Actor and producer Emerson Collins added: “It’s too bad there weren’t any out actors who are regularly called some euphemism for ‘too camp’ by casting directors, studios, networks, executives etc. for literally any role who were available for this Disney ‘first’.”

This is everything wrong with left-wing identity politics. It’s why we see, in the freest, safest, and most equal society for the most marginalized members of the intersectional caste system–women, people of color, transgenders, and homosexuals, the constant rhetoric that these groups are in severe danger constantly.

When you constantly seek the validation of man by descending into a neverending spiral of convincing yourself you’re a perpetual victim, you will soon become that–only you’re a victim of your own quest to justify a lifestyle that perhaps you know, deep down, can’t be justified before the Lord.

Maybe if these people stopped trying to force the approval of their fellow man–who can never satisfy the way God can–they would seek the face of a Lord who loves them and will validate their value more than any movie, person, social movement, or attempt to justify something sinful ever can.

Save conservative media!

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…

President Trump Says He’d ‘Go In And Do A Number On Middle East Countries Persecuting Christians’

Published

on

President Trump recently said that he would “do a number” on countries located in the Middle East that are persecuting Christians if he could find solid proof and evidence that sort of thing was happening. Christians in that part of the world are heavily persecuted, mostly by radical Muslim government regimes and terrorist groups, for daring to stand up boldly for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If you look at the way Christians have been treated in some countries, it’s beyond disgraceful,” Trump said Thursday during a news conference at the White House. “If I had information and if I had absolute proof — some of the stories that we’ve heard, which are not easy, which is not easy to get — I would go in and do a number to those countries like you wouldn’t believe. He added, “What they do to Christians in the Middle East — it’s disgraceful.” Trump made the comment while discussing the nascent “Abraham Accord” treaty to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This is not only going to be a big help to Christians in that area of the world, but it will also help Israel as well. For many, many years, the Jewish Nation has been surrounded by countries who do not recognize it’s legitimate right to exist. Striking this deal is a first step in changing that way of thinking in that part of the world. It’s something a lot of folks probably never dreamed possible before. Christians are told in the Bible to expect persecutions and to rejoice in suffering for the cause of Christ. However, that doesn’t mean we should allow persecution to continue on as if it’s a good thing. It’s not. If we have an opportunity…
