The theme of WorldNetDaily's sparsely read Whistleblower magazine for July was "Elites finally reveal their #1 enemy: CHRISTIANS" -- which is largely about peddling homophobia and complaining that the hateful Christian nationalism peddled by WND and its right-wing allies was being called out. Managing editor David Kupelian opened his essay for the issue, published July 5 at WND, with a blast of homophobia and transphobia ranting about "sexual-gender anarchy" and the "wild celebration of transgenderism," then followed it with complaining that his homophobia and transphobia is less tolerated in polite society than it should be:
Suddenly, bandying about an arcane academic term virtually no one used until recently – “Christian nationalism” – big media and Democrats are falling over each other to blame all of America’s problems on “Christian nationalists” (or “White Christian nationalists” or “White nationalists” or “Christian fascists” or “Christian fundamentalists” or “the Religious Right”).
What is new right now, however, is: 1) the extreme and ubiquitous Sodom-and-Gomorrah level of moral depravity in America, 2) the absolutely shocking campaign to recruit the nation’s pre-pubescent children into deviant sexual and gender “identities” and lifestyles, and 3) the fact that all of this is not merely tolerated, but wildly celebrated and glorified, by almost all of America’s most powerful institutions, from its schools to its government to its news and entertainment media.
Parallel to all this is the rapidly increasing demonization of those Americans who hold to the traditional Judeo-Christian values that formed the very foundation of the “American experiment,” the biblical principles of morality and justice woven into the U.S. Constitution and legal system, and which, for over two centuries, have made America the greatest, freest and most prosperous nation in all of human history.
Indeed, biblical Christianity is what gave birth to the whole notion of “individual rights” in the first place, rooted as they are in the conviction that man is created in the image of God. Likewise, the biblical understanding that mankind is fallen and in need of redemption (prompting Lord Acton to famously observe that “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely”) led to America’s unique and extraordinarily wise constitutional separation of powers. The biblical roots of the American system made this country the unique oasis of liberty and human rights it has long been in an otherwise mostly dark world.
That is why the current power-mad elites hate genuine Christianity, and why the ruling class is at war with, and daily attacking, America’s Christian foundations with increasing ferocity.
As if Kupelian and WND aren't actively demonizing anyone who disagrees with them and points out their hatred and otherizing of anyone who isn't a heterosexual. He's dishonestly playing victim while using his employer's megaphone to do so.He concluded by ranting:
In truth, to the radical left, Christians are not merely racists, misogynists, homophobes and transphobes, but Nazis, fascists, violent extremists and terrorists. But this perfect inversion of reality is because – bottom line – the left has always been in a state of war with Almighty God and His laws and His ways. In other words, at war with Reality. They are in perpetual rebellion against the Creator of the Universe because Marxism, by its very nature, amounts to hatred and rejection of God so that human “saviors” (who are generally sociopaths) can create their make-believe paradise on earth – with them in charge, of course. That, in turn, always ends up as hell on earth, with the 20th century being the bloodiest century in all of human history, thanks to the very types of God-rejecting, power-addicted Marxist utopians who are currently obsessed with ruling America.
Does this sound like a loving Christian to anyone? Only in the hate-filled circles in which Kupelian dwells. He's so intent on demonizing the "other" that he won't recognize the damage he himself is causing. There's a reason WND is having to beg for money from readers, and it's not because there's a "big tech" conspiracy against it -- it's because the website he runs spews hate, lies and misinformation, all while falsely claiming to publish "truth" and delcaring itself a "Christian" organization.
Thge problem is not that "elites" have declared Christians their "enemy" -- it's that far-right Christians like Kupelian have constantly warred against anyone like them and have nothing but hate to offer, and he needs to peddle the victim narrative because he has nothing else.
P.S. Hey, David: You're invited to respond and try to prove us wrong.
