Wile E. Coyote could defy gravity ... for a few seconds.
So can culture.
Every time Wile E. went over the edge he would hang in mid air for a bit. But gravity, like God, cannot be mocked.
Wile E. is a parable for post-Christan western culture. When we expelled the gospel we cut off our branch from the Tree of Life and the evidence is unmistabeable. The deficiation of our pets, zero-tolerance policies, no-smoking campuses and judgment free zones where only those with the power are allowed to judge the rest of us.
Behold how the left is now the new religious right.
A chief example is the gender confusion that is the order of the day. Like Wile E. it defies gravity. But only for a moment because men are not men by choice, nor women women by choice, but are hard-wired to be what they are.
Hang over the exhilirating edge if you must ... but be sure that your insurance premium current because life is not a cartoon show.
For all the proclamations of feminism young women still want to make themselves attractive to men because they are hard-wired to perpetuate humanity. They are sacred. They are blessed! Men likewise want to show themselves attractive as pro-creators, providers and protectors of the physically weaker-sex, and her fragile offspring for the same reason. To do what they are wired to do. To be what God made them to be. What arrogance to think that passing social proclamations can change that.
While what we say above is anathema to culture it is not to those who are attuned to the voice of God, and who desire good things from God. And so let us remember the admonition of St. James that: to be a friend of the world is to be at enmity with God. And St. Paul's admonition: not to be conformed to this world, but to be transformed by the renewal of our minds. That is what happens in holy worship.
Repent and believe the gospel!
