Look, Trump won.
I was praying for an electoral vote tie, so that the House could pick the candidate and we could get Evan McMullin. Yes, I don’t know much about him (nobody does). And it was a one-in-a-million chance….
But I was so sure Hillary would win. I thought Trump was just a con-artist — a liberal plant who was aping a caricature of a conservative, in order to give Hillary the presidency on a silver platter.
I was so sure that was what was going on, and that the Republicans were just so panicked and despairing and angry, that they were getting majorly conned. That due to their own panicked self-preservation and bitterness against liberals, they were playing right into their hands. It was painful to watch.
So yeah, I was a NeverTrumper. And no, I did not want Hillary to be president.
But I didn’t want Trump either.
And yes, I was terrified of President Hillary Clinton — because she is a progressive who truly believes in radical progressivism, and not only that, but she is incredibly intelligent and quite charming in her own way — an immensely capable ideologue.
It is the progressive ideologues who’ve been destroying traditional faith and traditional family in this world. They do it with the best of intentions — but neither they or I want to see (when they finally win) the world they will leave behind. And it will certainly not be the egalitarian paradise that they think. Unlike us traditional Christians, they do not know the darkness that our faith keeps at bay.
They think that if they take our faith from us, by neutering and spaying it into some pliant postmodern mold, we will be happier and the world will be better. It won’t. At all. They mistake traditional religion as a cancer that must be operated on within us, when our faith is really the only thing holding back the darkness within. Our faith is the only thing holding us near the light, the only thing that keeps us from slipping into the abyss. If they don’t know what I am talking about, then fine. But leave us alone. You don’t want to know.
I hope that is not what is happening here, now.
