Black Lives Matter coloring book is but one example of how radicalized educators are conquering the minds of captive children
(Rod Dreher, The American Conservative) A friend suggested to me in a letter yesterday that for my own mental and spiritual health, I need to stop writing about the culture war. I suspect he’s probably right, but on the other hand, there is so much that is going on that ordinary people who aren’t plugged into this stuff don’t see, and aren’t aware of, because our media ignore it. It feels like trying to push a pile of leaves uphill, writing about this stuff, but if people like me aren’t yelling about it, the bad guys are going to win. The question for me, personally, is figuring out the point when I, myself, have done all I can do. I remember back in the early 2000s, when I was writing angrily and frequently about the sex abuse scandal in the Catholic Church, some Catholic friends who shared my point of view nevertheless warned me that if I didn’t pace myself I was going to lose my faith. They were right, in the end, but I can’t say that I wish I had stepped away from the story. I only wish that I had had a stronger spiritual grounding from which to carry on the fight.
I’m in far, far better shape on that front today, but I still don’t want to take anything for granted.
