In my previous post I noted that it took me many years of blogging before I recognized that chivalry and not feminism is the primary corrupter of modern conservative Christianity. This understanding is essential, because conservative Christians are laboring under the assumption that chivalry is a tool to fight feminism. Part of what makes this so confusing is that chivalry and feminism are often quite difficult to tease apart. Feminism is fundamentally an appeal to chivalry, which is the essential truth of Dalrock’s Law of Feminism:You have to read him for the explanation of why feminism and chivalry are dual evils.
Feminism is the assertion that men are evil and naturally want to harm women, followed by pleas to men to solve all of women’s problems.The fatal conservative error is to assume that doing feminists’ bidding will eventually lead to feminist gratitude. Conservatives foolishly believe that one more act of valiant chivalry will finally win the feminists over. Chivalry is a way to strike a heroic pose while cravenly avoiding the terrifying prospect of opposing feminism. It is cowardice posing as bravery.
Even worse, in the chivalrous mindset feminist expressions of ingratitude are only proof that the chivalrous man is on the right and heroic path. Persistence in the face of cruel scorning by his lady is the very essence of chivalrous manhood.
As he explains, Lancelot became the model of chivalry by humiliating himself for the sake of an adulterous woman.
This situation is analogous to the twin evils of Jewish and Mormon Trump-haters. The Jewish Trump-haters believe in feminism, while the Mormon Trump-haters believe in chivalry. It is debatable which is worse.
Mitt Romney just wrote an op-ed attacking Trump. His first complaint is that Trump badmouths his enemies. But then Romney has no substantial criticism, and he is essentially just engaging in name-calling himself. Weird.
How did Romney get a such a screwed-up view of the world? Many other Mormon politicians have the same disease.
According to this, Romney went on CNN just to complain that Trump was not sufficiently subservient to Jewish causes. Apparently Romney understands that he can get press in the Jewish media by doing this.
Mormons are the mirror image of Jews. They are both brainwashed with views that are fundamentally incompatible with a Christian society.
