Drag Queen Jesus

President Trump intends to remove the United States from the Paris Climate Accord. It is a voluntary agreement to which every nation save Syria and Nicaragua signed and 100% of the nations who signed it have done nothing to actually advance the accord’s goals. Like much of the left these days, the act of signing was the salvific act — virtual signaling that one believes climate change is real. Actually doing anything under the agreement was unnecessary. President Trump, withdrawing the United States from the agreement, shows what an utterly wasted exercise it was. The anger about President Trump’s withdrawal has nothing to do with what the United States may or may not do and everything to do with it exposing how utterly useless the agreement actually is.

We will, very shortly, see social justice warriors masquerading as ministers trot out their Jesus to claim the President is somehow engaged in an affront to Christianity by withdrawing from the accord. The signatures on the draft letter are already making the rounds.

But the signatories are not truly worshiping the real Jesus, but a drag queen Jesus called Gaia. Gaia is not real, but is an object of religious devotion for much of the left. Worship of creation instead of worshipping the Creator has allowed members of the religious left to embrace child sacrifice. After all, more people means more breathers and more breathers means more carbon output and resource consumption. It has also allowed liberal Christianity to ignore the plight of the poor.

They are perfectly happy driving up the cost of living for poor Americans and putting people out of work in the poorest regions of the country because their unemployment is penance for extracting coal from their drag queen Jesus.

The theological left and secular left, more and more the same these days, will harm the poor, run down the economy, and claim salvation by the misery they inflict on all of us. They see symbolic agreements as modern religious creeds and ignore saving the soul in favor of saving the soil.

They would return us all to the time when we were last dependent on solar power and wind power, which our history books call the Dark Ages.

President Trump did the right thing by withdrawing from a meaningless, voluntary agreement that amounts to nothing more than virtue signaling. The theological liberals who will now condemn him and play to the press may be heralded as heroes now, but will be separated out with the goats on the last day. Salvation comes from Christ alone, not from signing silly documents and worshipping effeminate man created Jesus’s called Gaia.
