Brian Brown, who for years has made his living by railing against same-sex marriage, has issued a fund-raising letter that blames George Soros for wanting to destroy the ‘natural family.’
As we approach the Christmas holiday and then the end of the year, it’s a time to reflect on the great gift that God gave us – the natural family, one modeled on the Holy Family.
Some two millennia ago, a mother, father and baby huddled in a manger, in the company of animals and a choir of angels, as wise men followed a star to pay homage to them, and evil men conspired to destroy them.
The family was under heavy attack even then, as it is today. Please help IOF build a worldwide movement that brings together wise men and women, and wards off evil ones who wish to destroy the family.
George Soros has been hard at work for a very long time trying to remake societies in his leftist image.
His vision is a world without borders where the family is deconstructed and replaced by the state and where universal institutions – such as marriage, parenthood and the complementariness of the sexes – are replaced by political policies unmoored from history, tradition or reality itself.
Puh-leeze. Christianity views healthy marriages and families as a threat to its ownership and control of people, and can’t shut up about the wickedness of putting your family ahead of the cult.
Seriously: How often have you heard some preacher say, “Put your family first, and Jesus will be happy”? Never — that’s how often. Now, how many times have you heard some preacher say, “Jesus comes first, and your family can have the leftovers”?
One thousand? Ten thousand?
Albert Mohler, who has no idea what an odious and repellent man he is, puts the Christian expectation precisely:
The third theological fact about the family is the continued affirmation of the family within the redeemed people of God – the church. As the Gospels make clear, loyalty to Christ exceeds that of any family commitment, even as the church becomes the family of faith, embracing within its life all who come to faith in Christ and into the life of the church. And yet, Christians are explicitly instructed to honor marriage, to raise their children in the faith, and to order their family according to the Scriptures.
It looks to me as though Brown is projecting here, imputing to Soros what Christianity explicitly aims for — the displacement of the family by the cult.
