Bud Light, Target, Dodgers launch religious war and it's time to 'choose sides,' editorial warns

Corporate America has launched a religious war against members of faith across the nation and it's time to choose sides, warns an editorial published at The Federalist.

"But choose wisely," suggests John Daniel Davidson, a senior editor whose work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the Claremont Review of Books, The New York Post, and more.

"In this war, there are only two sides: the Tao and the Machine, God or Satan. You have to choose, but choose wisely," he wrote.

The background, he said, has been in headlines recently:

Bud Light enlists a trans lady face minstrel to sell beer. Target hires a trans-Satanist to design LGBT clothes for kids and starts selling “binding” and “tucking” swimwear. North Face launches a marketing campaign featuring a creepy drag performer hocking LGBT gear to children ages 2 to 7. The Los Angeles Dodgers gives an award to a demonic hate group whose sole purpose is to blaspheme and profane the Catholic faith.

All this, and June “pride month” hasn’t even begun.

This, he explained, is a new phase in the "culture war."

Actually, "What we’re in now is better described as a religious war — one that’s been launched by corporate America against all of us, and therefore demands we all choose sides," he said, and that means "you have to choose your religion."

"On one side is what C.S. Lewis called the Tao, which was his ecumenical shorthand for objective moral truth," Davidson wrote.

"In America and in the West generally, the side of the Tao is the side of faithful Christians and Jews, as well as those atheists who, for practical reasons, cling to Judeo-Christian morality as the survivors of a shipwreck might cling to a lifeboat. It is the side that sees Target’s transing of kids as an intolerable moral evil, affirms the givenness of our nature and the created order, and recognizes not only that man isn’t God, but that man’s destiny is communion with God in a redeemed creation."

The other side, the Machine, is the one that has at its root "a Nietzschean rebellion against God that turns out also to be 'a rebellion against everything: roots, culture, community, families, biology itself,'" he said.

It started in the Garden of Eden and has been reenacted since.

"The Machine is a religion that makes a claim over and against reality and the created order, which are denied and disfigured in man’s attempt to arrogate the power to recreate himself according to his own desires."

He continued, "This is just what we see in the twin trans movements: a desire to overcome sex and a desire to overcome death. The transhumanists are as explicit about their desire to cheat death and attain godlike immortality as transgenders are about their desire to become the opposite sex. The latter appear to believe, like rebellious pagans of past ages, that children have an important role to play in the achievement of this desire. The Machine devoured children by fire on the altars of Moloch and Baal; it devours them now in the black mirrors of the internet and social media."

And he had a warning: "The temptation here is to dismiss this reading of our situation as hyperbole. Surely it isn’t as bad as all that, we want to say. But it really is. What’s happening now isn’t about corporate brands embracing 'pride month,' as The New York Times recently framed it, or even about promoting tolerance in a diverse society. If Target were just selling T-shirts that said 'fabulous' in rainbow letters no one would care. This is about transing kids. Everyone knows it, but no one wants to say so out loud. Corporations are the tip of the spear, pushing this stuff out and then letting the media turn around and accuse the right of being violent bigots for objecting."

He confirmed corporate America is dedicated to its ideology and won't stop, even if some go broke. So it will require deeply serious people to oppose it.

"For adherents of the Tao, fighting this religious war is going to mean not just boycotting corporate brands but reorganizing your personal and professional life. It might mean quitting your job, moving, or giving up certain things. It will require sacrifice. Perhaps great sacrifice," he said.

"Choose, and choose wisely. Your country — and, more importantly, your soul — depends on it," he said.
