Skip to comments.The Striking Similarities Between SJWs and Evangelicals
Posted on 05/12/2018 1:48:40 PM PDT by davikkm
Over the past several years, the Social Justice Warrior movement has swelled to become a formidable beast in the US. Anyone who does not follow their strict doctrine is lambasted with terms such as fascist, racist, mansplainer, deplorable and an abundance of other dehumanizing insults. SJWs have corrupted academia, the media and politics. However, this isnt the first time America has had to deal with such a corrosive ideology.
The wave of Evangelicals that came during the last part of last century was (and still partially is) extremely similar to the SJW movement. Just to be clear, being a believer of Christianity doesnt make you an Evangelical; just as believing in justice doesnt make you a Social Justice Warrior. These two groups specifically represent the extremes of our society and are dominated by puritanical thinking and authoritarianism. Below are the most striking similarities between these two troublesome groups.

Pure garbage as usual. Author clearly knows NO Evangelicals and is merely repeating every lie made up by the Left about them.
Combine them with blog pimps and you have a perfect storm.
“These two groups specifically represent the extremes of our society and are dominated by puritanical thinking and authoritarianism.”
That is COMPLETE NONSENSE. Utter BS.
This guy knows nothing of which he speaks. His mind is one big caricature.
However, that is changing as the true Gospel of the Grace of Christ is spreading throughout the church and many believers' live are being transformed and set free by the revelation of the love, goodness, and grace of God in Christ.
The difference between SJW's and grace-based evangelicals is the difference between night and day.
I learned some thing from this excerpt.
That the author, Daniel Carter, is an idiot..
Just plain no
I dont agree at all with the basic premise, but Liberals being idiots, they do. Its the same way I point out the stupidity of today's moral panics, by comparing them with the right leaning moral panics of the past.
Yes, that has to be one of the dumbest titles I’ve ever seen.
"Evangelical" does not man "specifically represent the extremes of our society, dominated by puritanical thinking and authoritarianism."
"Evangelical" means Christian churches that emphasize the teachings and authority of the Scriptures.
This author is not only a bigot; he's a dumb bigot.
Evangelicals are open and welcoming, and would be the first to tell you that they themselves are sinners in need of a Saviour. You can be a Baptist, or Methodist, or nondenominational and be an "evangelical". Even Catholics are called upon to be evangelical. It is a basic tenet of Christianity.
Evangelicals are the largest percentage of christians in the US. I think it’s actually about half.
What a load of unadulterated crap.
I consider myself an evangelical Christian, but I am also a classical liberal who believes God granted us liberty.
That said, I must admit that the Moral Majority did have many campaigns of this nature during the 80s: video games, rockespecially heavy metal, Dungeons and Dragons, various tv shows and booksHarry Potter anyone? It happened and it was roundly condemned and ridiculed. The whole concept of social conservatism had it roots in this movement.
Yall can say youve never seen it, but there have always been zealots. Its just no one paid attention to zealots until recently. They were viewed as very strange, obsessed people, probably because they were very strange, obsessed people. We laughed at them and rightly considered them crazywe didnt try to accommodate them through law!
These were never evangelical Christians; anymore than the God hates fags folksthey were just weirdos. Christians dont coerce obedience; they try to live it.
Parents should make sure their kids dont have inappropriate materialsnot the government. I dont want the government having any say in how I raise my kids or telling them whats right and wrong.
He’s projecting and he’s too dim to re cognize it.
The author is demented if he believes what he wrote.
It happens on FR all the time, too. Go on a religion thread and challenge any doctrine. Either your post is deleted or you are treated like some devil.
