It is a common characteristic of religious cults to disparage mainstream religions as false. This is especially true of cults that falsely affect the outward trappings of some mainstream religion in an attempt to co-opt it.
The false Christianity being promoted in the Manosphere is rooted in an equally false philosophy called Game. Game has taken on the aspects of a cult; including a conversion process its disciples term 'taking the Red Pill' which, in turn, supposedly produces a superior type of male, the Alpha. (Women are considered an inferior form of humanity in their paradigms; and not infrequently, non-White males as well). The Red Pill Philosophy is really based more in Jungian Theory, Nietzschean Nihilism, and Evolutionary Psychology than anything religiously-based. Nonetheless, most Gamers have tried to cloak these pseudo-sciences with a veneer of Christianity, to give their abominable ideas an aura of legitimacy.
One the main bloggers of this cult, Dalrock, has published a series of articles this week, attacking several prominent Protestant ministers: accusing them of teaching the sinlessness of women and other blasphemies. As it happens, most of these pastors are engaged in family counseling and similar issues---which is completely understandable given the state of the American family. Dalrock expends most of his venom on the Rev. Russell Moore, head of the Southern Baptist Convention, for a lecture he gave in 2013. Rev. Moore was arguing---really more from Common Sense than from Scripture---that a woman withholding sex from her husband is probably dissatisfied with him in some way, and men would be well-advised to examine the cause.
Contrary to what the Gamers seem to imagine, women who are angry with the significant men in their lives typically don't display that anger by giving said man passionate sex. Women behaved this way long before Feminism; in spite of what the Red Pills believe. Female psychology is so constituted as to avoid direct confrontation and react in passive ways. One is reminded of a dialogue of an episode of television we reviewed earlier, Johnny Ringo. In that show, Ringo was trying to stop a woman from organizing a lynch-mob to kill the man in jail for murdering her father. Ringo's young protégée asked the Marshal how a woman could do something like this. Ringo replied: "Injustice works differently on a woman. When a woman's been hurt, she can't strap on a six-gun and call out her enemy, or settle it man-to-man with her fists like we can. They have to settle things in more roundabout ways."
Rev. Moore's advice, as quoted by Dalrock, was essentially getting men to understand that and not react passively themselves by having affairs or turning to pornography. Dalrock accuses Moore (and others who said similar things) of teaching that husbands who follow this advice are unbiblically submitting to the wives. He argues instead that women are obliged to suffer in silence, and in fact actually sin themselves by withholding sex.
How could Dalrock and the other Gamers actually reach such an absurd conclusion? Dalrock explains in the article Rubbing Body Parts Together:
"Pastors and theologians are most uncomfortable with the idea that husbands are entitled to sex in marriage." he quotes Game Cult blogger 'Deti' and then affirms: "This is true and is tangled up in the modern elevation of romance/emotion out of all proportion. The belief is that martial sex needs to be purified by romance, or it is unseemly. You can see this in both Mohler's (another Southern Baptist leader) and Moore's writings."
It's likely seen in these Baptist doctors' writings because the idea is not modern. "Speak to my sisters and tell them to love Christ and be satisfied with their husbands in both flesh and spirit. Exhort my brothers in the name of Jesus Christ that they love their wives even as Our Lord loved the Church." So said St. Ignatius of Antioch, who himself was a disciple of St. John the Apostle. Which indicates that the Early Christians believed quite firmly that love purified sex.
And what opinion did the same St. Ignatius hold of teachings like Dalrock's? "But it is fitting for both men and women who marry to form their union with the approval of their bishop, that their marriage may be according to God, and not after their own lust." So much for the modern notion promoted by the Game Cult, that sex is merely a physical act devoid of any emotional bonding.
In the same article, Dalrock even goes so far as to accuse Reverends Moore and Mohler of consecrating a wife's position in marriage to that of a high priestess! That the congress of the Southern Baptist Church would advocate such a heresy is so incredible that it really calls into question Dalrock's sanity. He bases that statement on Mohler's words that:
"A husband owes his wife the confidence, affection, and emotional support that would lead her to give herself freely in the act of sex."
What is doubly absurd about this is that the Game Cult teaches men to seduce women by faking these very attitudes. Yet, somehow, PUA behavior does not equate submission to women in their perverse logic. Somehow, it is only when the man is using or deceiving the woman for sex, is sex justified. And Dalrock argues that after marriage, it is simply an entitlement without the pretenses.
The Red Pill Cult, true to its actual origins in primitivist theories, is not a spiritual religion at all. In fact, it's a degenerative social movement, lowering human beings not only to pre-Christian, but even to pre-pagan levels. Dalrock and the other Gamers are preaching the morality of the ape; but nothing rising to the dignity of Man. Male apes don't care about female attitudes towards sex; civilized men do.
