Hi, friends. It’s been a while.
Today, I feel compelled to share my opinion on the Kavanaugh/Ford saga that has, apparently, rocked the nation.
Initially, I was not going to tout my opinion, but the more I hear and read, I’m too saddened not to be a voice for other women (and men) who don’t buy into the narrative that all women are truthful, just, and right – while all men are evil, rape-minded liars.
I’m going to keep this as brief as possible, because whether you agree or disagree, you’ve heard it all already.
First, prior to hearing Dr. Ford give her testimony, several feminist and liberal groups automatically supported her. Yep, without even hearing her full story. Also, while completely disregarding the fact that Dr. Ford’s story has major holes, inconsistencies, and that she lied about a fear of flying (oh, and she flies frequently to the east coast to visit family and has taken several vacations in recent years) in order to avoid going to DC to testify. Meanwhile, conveniently forgetting that she was offered to be interviewed in her own home. Why? Because #feminism and #killthepatriarchy.
K. So, feminism in 2018 has become the idea that in order to raise up women, we must vilify and condemn all men. All men are evil, all women are perfect and right. 100 percent of the time. And liberalism has become nothing but a party of people who openly admit they will do everything in their power to stop conservatives, no matter what the cost.
Looking at feminism from a biblical standpoint, it does not make sense. Nowhere in Jesus’ gospel does it say to treat certain people as infallible and others as villains. No. Jesus says to treat all people as the body of Christ. Sorry Christian feminists, your narrative doesn’t fit scripture.
Feminism, at its core, is well-intended. I truly believe that. Society has twisted and mangled it so badly that it has become laughable and ridiculous. And trust me, it’s very hard to be a female conservative millennial these days. It would be so much easier to abide by secular world views and join the crowd, but what liberalism and feminism stand for in this day, has no biblical clout. There is nothing in my faith that supports the narrative. But Jesus never said being a follower of Him would be easy, so I’ll take on my cross.
For those of you who think Jesus was a socialist activist, he was not. Social justice as it stands today is not biblical justice. There is nothing “just” about condemning someone as guilty without evidence because of his sex. Jesus would never treat people the way the democratic left is treating Judge Kavanaugh.
Listen, if there was any evidence to support that Kavanaugh is a “misogynistic gang-raper,” I would understand the outage. But there simply isn’t evidence aside from Dr. Ford’s testimony that is filled with holes and a couple of other unreliable sources. I could somewhat understand the nasty language and harassment by activists if these accusations did not come out days prior to Kavanaugh’s acceptance to the Supreme Court. I might believe Ford and these other loony women if they were not ALL leftist, anti-Trump activists. You get the picture.
You don’t need to believe all women…because you’re a woman.
This particular story is not of social justice, civic duty, or moral ethics. This is a witch hunt. We live in a sin-sick world where good is evil and evil is good. Why is it a witch hunt? Because the left loathes Trump and anyone he supports so incredibly much that they have actually lost their minds. Oh, and because they think Kavanaugh is going to overturn Roe v. Wade and make it harder for the lovely women who brag about their abortions to get them. Which isn’t even entirely true in the context they understand it. And not to mention…it’s apparently despicable to want to protect God’s unborn children, because #womensrights and #mybodymychoice. I’d like to know where in the Bible it says THAT.
And for those of you who don’t subscribe to religion, is it really so wrong to not want to murder unborn babies? Their body, their choice, right?
You see, it’s not that I believe Kavanaugh is an infallible person and Ford a vicious liar. I do believe something happened to Ford, but I have no reason, beyond a reasonable doubt, to believe it was Kavanaugh.
I believe Ford is a pawn in the left’s twisted game to fuel the liberal agenda, furthering biblical prophecy of what the end times look like.
You can think I’m a crazy Bible thumper, an insecure girl, brainwashed by my white husband to subscribe to the patriarchy – but let me tell you something: I have not always been an example of Christianity. My faith has grown exponentially in recent years. And my husband? He doesn’t pay attention to politics and (shamefully) has not voted in any recent election. So, you can throw that idea out the window.
I believe that all people should be treated fairly and respectfully. What has gone on in US politics in recent years is just plain sad.
