This past Monday, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled by a vote of 6-3 that a woman is not real.
Writing for the majority, Justice Neil Gorsuch announced, “The six of us on the Court who are clearly smarter than the dissenting three, and, likewise, much brighter and wiser than the hundreds of millions of you deplorable rubes across the land who still believe in biology and genetics, have decided, by god-like fiat, that as of June 15, 2020, a female is no longer a fact, but a fantasy.”
The Sovereign One continued after using the Bill of Rights as a napkin to wipe the tears of postmodern joy from his eyes.
“Therefore, on this grand day of enlightenment, we proclaim that throughout the land, all subjects of the United States of America must now bow in submission to the Rainbow altar and its golden calf. You must pay homage to our Cult of Feelings. You must deny reality and cast all reason aside.
“How foolish of you think that there is a God and that He created man as a binary male and female. How naive of you to think a female is a fact. She is not!
“In our day of gnosis, we know that nothing can be known and, therefore, we know that a woman is little more than a fantasy and a fabrication. We are sure that nothing is sure, but of this one thing we are sure … Being a woman is a social construct and not an objective reality.
“A woman is not defined by her biology! A woman’s sex and gender are not confined to the antiquated categories of male and female.
“No! Such intolerant thinking cannot be tolerated. We will not permit your bigotry!
“So, in keeping with our superior knowledge, beginning immediately, any dysphoric male who wants to play dress-up and make-believe is declared an actual woman.
“Therefore, those of you who still cling to your antiquated belief that you are a female because of your physiology must immediately cease engaging in such micro-aggressions, and you must henceforth, give up your bathrooms, give up your showers, give up your scholarships, give up your sports, and give up your jobs, to those men who pretend to be what you truly are.
“You must also give up your identity. It is ours to define, not yours.
“And you must give up your dignity. It is ours to grant. It is ours to take.
“Reason and logic are dead.
“This court proudly works (with a hat tip to BLM) to ‘dismantle cisgender privilege. We believe in building a space that is free from sexism. We seek to disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure as we foster a queer-affirm network.’
“We will not be satisfied until the last heteronormative Neanderthal is strangled by the entrails of the last cisgender retrograde.
“We shout with Joe Biden, ‘We believe in truth (our truth), not facts!’
“We have deconstructed the Bible. Why wouldn’t you think we would do the same with the Constitution. We have dismissed the teachings of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Why wouldn’t we do likewise with Madison and Jefferson?
“We laugh at your Creator.
“There are no unalienable rights.
“Original intent is the opiate of the masses.
“Self-evident truths are little more than intersectional power.
“All hail the god of feelings.
“Facts be damned!”
C.S. Lewis, in confronting the arrogance of the oligarchy of his time, said, “We simply found ourselves in contact with a certain current of ideas and plunged into it because it seemed modern and [woke] … We were afraid of a breach with the spirit of the age, afraid of ridicule …. Having allowed [ourselves] to drift, unresisting …, we reached a point where we no longer believed [in truth].”
Drifting, unresisting, afraid of ridicule, reaching a point where we no longer believe the truth …
When six people in black robes who fancy themselves our betters actually start telling us that a female is not a fact, that our human identity is nothing more than the sum total of our base inclinations, and that a man is defined by his libido and not his Lord, it might be time for us to remind these smart folks that there is a God and it is not them.
When “conservatives” on our Supreme Court arrogantly presume to write law based on what is “modern and woke” rather than what is right and real we might want to point to the words of someone who reportedly was a bit wiser than them: “There is a way that seems right unto man but the end thereof leads to death.” — Solomon.
