Corporate Church Ladies

One of the repeated themes I keep coming back to is the idea that what we call "liberalism", which isn't terribly liberal these days, or "progressivism" or just garden variety leftism is less of a political philosophy and really more of a secular religion. In the religion of leftist, there is a clear priestly caste among the people: entertainers, academics and increasingly global corporate leaders. One of those CEO-priestesses is Apple CEO Tim Cook. Apple is the ultimate leftist virtue signaling brand. Apple is as much about the image as it is about the products. Having a phone with the Apple logo means that you are just a better person than someone running an Android phone. It also means you spent more on a phone than any reasonable person would.

So this High Priest Tim has come out with a little chat where he talks about the morality and values of Apple and corporate America in general, which is kind of jarring because Tim is an open homosexual. I couldn't find the video to embed but you can watch it at this Twitter link.



That certainly smacks of Biblical language about shunning the sinner from the assembly. Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians about this: God judges those outside. “Purge the evil person from among you.” (1 Corinthians 5:13 ESV). In place of purging the sexually immoral from the Christian church, Tim Cook proposes purging the social media church of "white supremacy" and "hate". Not just because he doesn't like what these "white supremacists" are saying but because failing to purge them would be a sin. Yes, now the left is using the language of sin to describe speech they find politically incorrect. So if you are keeping track at home, according to the Right Reverend Tim Cook:

A man sodomizing another man: Not a sin

Speech that triggers leftists: A sin.

Of course this is the same Tim Cook that described his homosexual lifestyle as a "gift" from God: "I'm proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me"

After all the yammering about how awful those moralistic Christians are with their talk about sin and judgment, now the Left is adopting very similar language. In place of Moses coming down from Mt. Sinai with the Ten Commandments graven on tablets of stone, we now have the Prophet Tim Cook swishing down from Mt. Sodomy with a list of commandments, only these are written on dry erase boards so our progressive priesthood can modify them as they see fit.

The Left is getting very close to victory in their effort to replace the Western tradition of values and morals with a new set of "morals", replacing Christendom, flawed as it was, with a new secular religion. This is also your daily reminder that corporate America, especially the largest global companies, are not and never have been the ally of the conservative base in America. They only care about the white working class insofar as those people keep their mouths shut, vote as they are told to promote policies that enrich the corporate class and above all keep buying crap they don't need. While beltway Republicans keep kowtowing to the corporate class, the rest of us are waking up.

People like Tim Cook are religious fundamentalists that are only distinguished from KJV-Only Primitive Baptists by having more money and being respectable in our society. Instead of a moral code based on thousands of years old precepts, it is being replaced not with "science" and "reason" as we were told but instead by a new "moral" code dictated by the least moral people in our society and a code that is malleable and amorphous, changing from day to day as the cultural winds shift. While "conservatives" have been fighting little tactical squabbles on one front, political whack-a-mole, the Left has been taking over the government bureaucracy, the entertainment world, the education establishment and the corporate boardrooms. I fear we are past the point of being able to find a political solution to this madness.
