Girly Men of the Cross

In the "Song of Roland," a heroic French poem about the Battle of Roncesvalles in 778 during the reign of Charlemagne, one cannot help but be impressed by Archbishop Turpin. A Moorish invasion of Charlemagne's kingdom is taking place and his retainers do not hesitate to take up arms. Archbishop Turpin, although a man of the cloth, arms himself, splitting a head or two of the invaders.

That was then.

Today we have a similar invasion taking place. The Third World is pouring into Europe (Africans, Middle Easterners, Indians) and into the United States (mestizo hordes from Mexico and Central America) but the religious leaders today have taken nearly an opposite position. Instead of opposing the invaders, Christian leaders whine about mistreatment of the invaders and have actually sided with them.

This treason ranges from Pope Benedict siding with African invaders against Europeans to Cardinal Timothy Dolan supporting open borders to Protestant leaders like Richard Land and Russell Moore supporting the Third World invasion of the United States.

Clearly, as others have noted, these men suffer from both both ethnomasochism and pathological altruism. Channelling Roissy, one cannot help from noticing that these men are often pathetic beta males.

Christian leaders today are effeminate, as is seen in the emotional tactics used by people like John Piper in cajoling white people into adopting non-white babies. In discussing the recent Christian fetish of transracial adoption, Christian HBD blogger Generation5 notes that this impulse in part derives from a complete feminization of Christianity.

This feminization is probably nowhere more apparent than in male leaders of the pro-life movement, where it is not uncommon to see grown white men crying like little girls in public because some black person unknown and unrelated to them somewhere is getting an abortion. (Contrast this to alpha male Michael Corleone whose anger at his wife is not because of some abstract concern about abortion but because she reduced his inclusive fitness.)

Here is some telling visual evidence.

Maudlin evangelical leaders praying for poor immigrants:

Or beta male Matthew Soerens, US Church Training Specialist for World Relief, whose panties are in a knot over whether some black child is unadopted or some illegal immigrant is mistreated.

God help us.
