They don’t actually care about fighting “hate speech,” they just want it directed at the “right” people.
You see it everywhere: Organizations designed to fight back against HATE. Social media giants regulating their platforms to silence HATE SPEECH. Social Justice Warriors dedicating their lives to combating HATE GROUPS. It’s all about fighting HATE because all forms of HATRED are wrong, we’ve been led to believe.
But hatred is a Biblical concept.
Psalm 139:19-22 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men. For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain. Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.
King David, through the inspiration of the Holy Ghost, proclaimed his hatred for God’s enemies. As Christians, we are instructed to love our enemies and hate God’s enemies. We are called to hate those who hate God.
Consequently, I do not mourn when God’s enemies perish and I rejoice when evil workers of iniquity are destroyed. In fact, I believe it is a natural human instinct to celebrate when a wicked person is brought to justice – as evidenced by recent history.
Psalm 58:10 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.
Proverbs 11:10 When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.
Jeremiah 16:5 For thus saith the LORD, Enter not into the house of mourning, neither go to lament nor bemoan them: for I have taken away my peace from this people, saith the LORD, even lovingkindness and mercies.
I don’t celebrate the downfall of my personal enemies, I love them and I pray for them. However, I do rejoice at the fall of irredeemably wicked people.
Consider what is happening in 2022 America. Children are being defiled on a daily basis with repulsive, “drag queen” perversion at “Pride” parades and public schools/libraries across the country. The sodomites are hurting innocent children, sexualizing them and promulgating their abominable propaganda on TV and the radio. They are, according to Romans 1, without a conscience and haters of God.
I do not condone violence. I am peaceful. I do not believe anyone should take up arms and fight a physical battle, at all. It is wrong. The Christian response to the sodomite issue is to stay the hell away from them at all costs. Don’t talk to them, don’t befriend them, run away in the other direction and let God sort them out.
However, I refuse to mourn their demise. I will not shed a tear when a pedophile dies, rendering it incapable of hurting another innocent child.
In response, the self-righteous left accuses me of espousing “hate speech” and “extremism.” For them, anything other than unanimous support for the sodomites is tantamount to violence. To hate anyone at all and refuse to lament the death of the wicked is barbaric and radical, according to the liberal hive mind.
Unlike me – liberals would never hate anyone! They would never celebrate the death of their enemies, would they?
When Donald Trump got Covid, they celebrated and wished he would die.
When Rush Limbaugh died, they celebrated.
When Justice Antonin Scalia died, they celebrated.
When an anonymous woman created a Twitter account that simply reposts content to expose groomers, they threatened her life.
When a West Virginia pastor had the audacity to oppose rainbow flag emojis, he was forced to move because they sent him a cascade of vicious death threats.
When my friend preached that sodomy is a capital crime, they called our church directly threatening to kill everyone – men, women and children.
Here are nearly 200 more examples to further substantiate my point.
My friends and I have experienced a steady stream of liberal hatred first hand. The church I frequent, Stedfast Baptist Church, has been protested consistently since 2021 for preaching the Bible and taking a stand against the sodomites. The filth spewed at the congregation – my brothers and sisters in Christ – has been unimaginable.
They antagonize us, spit at us, stalk us and shriek death threats at the top of their lungs. They are the biggest hypocrites on the face of the planet – and they’ve been arrested multiple times already since they’ve started harassing our church.
What does this prove? Leftism – for all its “love is love” platitudes – actually endorses hatred as long as it is directed at its opposition. “Hate speech,” as an accusation, only applies to vitriolic speech directed at left-wing allies.
THEY DON’T ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT “HATE” AT ALL.
Realize that leftists are gaslighting liars. They don’t actually care about hate, they care about who you hate.
As Christians, we are apparently only allowed to hate people who’ve been dehumanized, tarred and feathered by the establishment. If I posted a video declaring my utter hatred and disdain for Donald Trump, not a single left-wing blogger or organization would ever criticize me. Everyone knows this. If I posted about how I wish Trump would die, I’d receive zero backlash. We all know this is true, since liberals do it all the time.
So, what’s my point? The left has monopolized and redefined “hate” so it only applies when directed at certain segments of society (Jews, sodomites, basically any group leftists want to protect). As a result, Christians are wrongfully shying away from certain passages of scripture so as not to be plastered with buzzwords and labeled “hateful.” Churches are toning down the preaching of God’s Word to avoid being condemned by the SPLC, ADL or some other propaganda arm of the establishment.
Yes, Christians need to be reminded that hating reprobates is a Biblical concept and the scriptures warn us not to tone down the message. But it’s also worth noting that hatred is not even the issue. Leftists don’t actually care about “hate.” They don’t really oppose “hate.” How could that even be possible? They hate people, too!
They hate you.
They hate God.
They hate conservatives.
They hate Christians.
They hate children.
They hate the King James Bible.
They hate everyone who opposes them.
They hate those who they’ve been socially engineered to hate.
Proverbs 17:15 He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.
Christians need to stop being so scared of a bunch of purple-haired freaks accusing them of “hate speech.” Why should that even matter? The left doesn’t even believe its own rhetoric about “hate” to begin with!
They aren’t actually upset about “hate speech,” they’re angry about where that speech is being directed. They just want us to hate who they hate, and love who they love. They want us to justify the wicked and condemn the just.
Sadly, too many watered down Christians are giving them exactly what they want.
