Hillary might consider me a deplorable. Truthfully, I don’t really care what she thinks. If God is pleased with me, then I am not deplorable in His eyes. But Hillary very well could be. She doesn’t seem to be overly concerned about what God might think however.
Our female presidential candidate considers those people deplorable who possess these characteristics: racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic or Islamaphobic. Let’s break those down into their individual categories and examine them a bit more closely.
Racist: this is the new catchall term to sling at anyone you want to oppose. I’m convinced that the majority of people in the United State have no freaking clue what this word really means. Would these be the people who say “all lives matter?” Would these be people who think that all people, no matter what their color (there is only one race – the human race – proven by DNA studies) should be arrested and prosecuted for their crimes?
Sexist: this term totally baffles me. Perhaps it’s a replacement for chauvinistic pig the phrase that graced the lips of the kids in Archie Bunker’s household on TV in the 60s. I’ve never seen a situation where a female was accused of being sexist. In my eyes this is a term coined by the feminists in their battle for superiority, I mean equality. Yes, I believe a woman should get paid the same as a man for the same job. Yes women should have equal protection under the law, etc. etc. etc. There, am I off the hook on this issue? Or does the fact I believe that women should have the freedom to seek employment outside the home, but the greatest job of all is being a mom land me into the deplorable category?
Homophobic: I have to submit to you that this is totally a case of misnomenclature. Phobic indicates an unnatural fear. I don’t know of anyone who has unrealistic fears about homosexuality. There are people who I admit have a hatred for homosexuality and homosexuals themselves. Phobia and hatred are far from the same thing. And then there are those who oppose homosexuality because of their religious convictions. The ideal in that scenario is those people hate the sin but love the sinner. If standing up for what you believe without inflicting actual (not perceived) injury to people who believe otherwise is deplorable, then sign me up for a long tour of duty.
Xenophobic: fear of foreign culture. I admit I had to look up this word. Perhaps I have an unhealthy fear that soccer will soon surpass American football as the most popular sport in America. Not! I can safely say that in this day where terrorism raises its ugly head all over the globe, that wanting to limit the people who are allowed to enter our border is not a deplorable thing. We have immigration laws to handle such things. So do other countries. I don’t know of a country where you can just decide to drop in and take up residency. Why would not wanting that scenario make people phobic?
Islamaphobic: back to the question of irrational fear. I just broached this topic in my latest book. If a group of people makes threats to kill others who are not part of their group and they actually do so in heinous manners, wouldn’t fear of such a group be rational? So number one: there is reason to fear jihad minded Islam. Number two, the primary crime against Islam by Christians is that they refuse to budge on the position that Jesus is the only way to Heaven and the son of the living God. Christians are commanded to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with others. That basically forces us to claim that Islam is a false religion whether we use such terminology openly or not. That is labeled Islamaphobia. I can’t help but wonder what we should label the practice of Islamic followers killing or imprisoning those members of their faith that embrace Jesus Christ. I submit to you that Christians are not the problem with the unreasonable fear here. Thus if again standing for my belief in Jesus Christ makes me deplorable, chain me to the wall (in my best Chihuahua accent).
In summary, it appears that people who make public professions against homosexuality, transgender-ism, feminism, illegal immigration, forced resettlement of refugees from Islamic countries, and Sharia law are deplorable. Those who choose to champion such causes are the darlings of the main stream media culture shapers and obviously of the woman who would be president. I hate to be negative here, but Hillary’s use of the term deplorable here exceeds by far the paradigm of the pot calling the kettle black. Oops! Is that a racist joke? The Bible says that in the last days that evil shall be called good and good evil. So Miss Hillary, by deploring God’s truth and being worshiped as a “good” woman, you are fulfilling scripture. Just sayin’.
A PS just for jollies: here’s a definition found on the Internet which is very revealing in itself. Christophobia is the irrational fear or hatred of Christianity or Christians. While Christophobia is a real thing, it is usually used as a snarl word by some Christians with a persecution complex and (at most) only a passing familiarity with reality. There’s probably a good overlap with the people who claim there’s a liberal bias in the media.
