Vox Day, one the ringleaders of the Manosphere Alpha/Game Cult, has started a series of 'rebuttals' to a Christian blogger who evidently believes more in The Ten Commandments than Vox' grandiloquent Sixteen Principles of the Alt-Right. For those not familiar with the Red Pill Cult, their leaders are always making these absurd lists like these and giving them titles like Ironclad Rules, Commandments of Poon, and other nonsense in complete contradiction with Christianity.
Vox' ire was raised by a blogger named Comic Hound, who wrote a point-by-point critique of Vox' loony manifesto from a Christian standpoint. Vox, though, immediately labelled him a Churchian and a Cuckservative as he does with anyone of the political Right who doesn't bow down to him.
Comic Hound's article itself is very good and readers are encouraged to link to it. It's very well thought-out and the author appears to be quite scholarly and reflective. This level of erudition naturally arouses the envy of the Gamers whose philosophy is based on an extremely low level of discourse. That can be seen by the fact that Vox' so-called rebuttal opens up with a torrent of buzz-words: "It is incoherent, incompetent, globalist, anti-Western, and anti-American!" he raves in the first paragraph, "It takes Christian theology and transforms it into something evil and Babylonian! He completely damns his own position with his ignorance, ineptitude, and philosophical incoherence!" Etc., etc.
Experience with various writers has taught many of us that whenever we hear language like this, it's a good indication that somebody's been telling the truth. And it's very typical of cult leaders to dismiss objections to their dogmas this way. Now we here don't know what denomination Comic Hound belongs, but his statements are very much in line with most mainstream churches.
In Vox' first post he covers Comic Hound's first points by calling him a 'Churchian' four times; a 'jackass' once; and never answers a single point in between. He invents another of his many neologisms, tactobrication for the occasion. This term, he informs us, comes from being unable to differentiate between tactics, strategy, objectives, and identity. To cut through all of Vox' cultish mumbo-jumbo, he's essentially accusing of Conservatives and Christians of some kind of Defeatism because we won't adopt the dishonest tactics of the Left. In an earlier paragraph Vox complained that Comic Hound doesn't understand Socialism: neither apparently does Vox understand that his own tactics mirror theirs.
To clarify here: we follow a philosophy based in faith. Because we have Faith in God, we don't need to resort to the types of tactics the Left does. When Comic Hound says "we must stand for what is right, even when it means temporary loss." That is, we have Faith that what appears to be a defeat will ultimately rebound to glorify God. We've written here on several occasions of Christians in the Middle East who were martyred by Wahhabi fanatics in places like Syria, Iraq, and Yemen. Their willingness to die for their Faith, combined with the horrors inflicted by ISIS has caused a renewed respect for Christians there and many conversions.
Like the Cultural Marxists whom they copy, the Red Pills' faith is in an ideology. Not being of divine origin, their dogmas produce no self-evident Fruits of the Spirit. Thus they have to resort to force and fraud; and---in light of this deficiency---we can see why Vox and his followers admire people like Anders Breivik and Eliot Roger.
Vox also falsely accuses Christians of being hostile to Western Civilization. This is false because Western Civilization and Christianity grew out of the same source in Classical Greece. But Vox is especially exorcised by Comic Hound's assertion denying that the West is Christian because it is inherently superior. In fact all we really have to do is read the story in the Acts of the Apostles about St. Phillip's conversion of the Ethiopian chamberlain. The Abyssinian Church is among the world's oldest.
No doubt Vox will have some further spleen-venting. In the meantime, though, read the link---it's very good.
