On the 26th of March, a South African Labor Court in Durban ruled in favor of a sodomite who took his employer to court when he refused to give him four months of fully paid “maternity leave” after he had a baby via surrogate.1 Four months is what is usually granted to new mothers, and more than the two months usually granted to adoptive mothers, which is actually what the employer was willing to grant him in the first place.2 Rejoicing after the ruling, Irvin Lawrence, the lawyer representing the (anonymous) sodomite, observed: “I think it’s a vindication that these antiquated conceptions of marriage, of who is ultimately responsible for the care of the child, are rendered void. Ultimately you now have a judge saying we’re enlightened, we’re beyond that stage of prehistoric thinking.”3 If this is not a satanic song of victory over Christendom, I don’t know what is. Cultural Marxism has been marching successfully through the institutions in South Africa and the West over the past few decades, to the extent that their complete victory seems to have been achieved.
To be honest, however, with the governing and academic elites of South Africa being made up solely of Marxists who have in the past few decades been successfully advocating every godless agenda imaginable in this country, this ruling is not that surprising. The ruling also logically follows from the full legalization of sodomite marriage and adoption in South Africa under former president Thabo Mbeki back in 2006. South Africa at the time became the fifth nation in the world (after the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, and Canada) to legalize this abomination.4 When forsaking God’s Law as the ultimate, morally binding standard for legislation, there really is no end to the spectrum of absurdities that a godless government can implement.
The implications of this particular court-ruling for South African Christians are far-reaching. Christians, who, as I’ve previously noted, suffer institutional persecution in South Africa, and who have over the past eighteen years been forced to pay for over 1.2 million legal murders via abortion through taxes, are now also obliged to pay a sodomite employee four months’ salary to “raise” his adopted baby. First of all, the socialistic government is, with this ruling, overreaching its divinely-ordained limits and infringing on the rights of employers. Not only this, it also infringes on the rights of parents by implementing regulations pertaining to child-rearing. Women should of course be encouraged to take care of children and be primarily homemakers, while husbands should take responsibility as providers and protectors, but biblically, even this should be enforced not by the state (not a higher authority than the family, merely different in domain), but by a more family-centered, as opposed to profit-centered, economic system. Secondly, Christian employers, for whom paying maternity leave for married women would otherwise probably not be such a big deal, are now forced to pay a sodomite man to “take care” of a baby, i.e. forced to fund a godless practice to which they (should) have serious moral objections. Thirdly, the state, by this ruling, further vindicates the practice of sodomite surrogate adoptions, thereby contributing to the potential destruction of the lives of many children.
The ruling itself doesn’t come as as much of a shock as the complete lack of reaction from the supposedly Christian communities of South Africa. At the time of writing this article, I haven’t seen a single church or group in the country publicly object in even the slightest fashion to the court ruling. Apparently, the African Christian Democratic Party had the time and energy on that very same day to condemn by press release the attack on three Jewish teenagers as “anti-Semitic” and completely unacceptable, but they chose to remain silent on this court ruling. Complete and utter silence seems to be the way the church has opted to go. Of course, you wouldn’t really expect anything from the mainline Dutch Reformed Church, who has embraced sodomy to the extent that their synod moderator has recently called for the church to “respect all people regardless of their language, culture, national origin or sexual orientation – because God’s love compels us to regard others higher than ourselves . . . [and] teaches us to learn to use new language that enables people to feel better about themselves.”5 So naturally, for the largest Afrikaans church to say something against this godless ruling would contradict the all-important injunction to make sodomites “feel better about themselves.” Nonetheless, even conservative Afrikaans churches and organizations have been silent on the issue. In fact, in the comments sections of news sites, one strikingly finds almost exclusively black individuals verbally expressing their opposition to this ruling.6 The silence of the white community, though shocking, is yet not inexplicable. Since the beginning of the 1990s, in preparing for the Marxist takeover of the country, white South Africans have been guilted into accepting the false idea that they and their culture have been unfairly “privileged” for decades during the twentieth century and that they therefore have to continually make sacrifices for the egalitarian god to atone for their ancestral sins. Of course, as we are continually told, not only black people but also sodomites had been discriminated against, so in the name of equality and diversity they now need to be respected, embraced, and, in the words of the aforementioned moderator, “regard[ed as] higher than ourselves.” The theology of the Belhar Confession, after all, implies that God loves lustful sodomites much more than he does Bible-believing and Christ-honoring white men and women. The historical truth, of course, is not that white people have for some inexplicable reason been “privileged,” but that their culture produced most of the positive socioeconomic and cultural developments in South Africa. Their Christian culture indeed suppressed sodomy, yes, but because it is evil.
Whites have been guilted into accepting and embracing not only miscegenation and consequent self-genocide, but also, in violation of the fifth commandment, hatred for their Christian ancestors – so much so that they now either regard sodomites as superior to themselves, or, if they still secretly oppose this damnable practice (which just under half of Afrikaners still do),7 prefer wicked silence amid vileness’s exaltation (Psalm 12:8). Coming out of the closet in opposition to this would amount to subverting the system for which those deified “struggle heroes” such as Biko and Mandela worked so hard, and would be blasphemous against South Africa’s infallible Marxist, anti-Christian constitution, which guarantees sodomite rights against all Christian objection.8 Black South Africans, on the other hand, can be thankful that the agenda has not been forced on them to the extent that it has been on whites, although even their strong tribalist culture, which flourished under apartheid, is now being infiltrated and damaged by this virus also.
This step from South Africa’s government just once again proves that the entire twentieth-century struggle and project of “establishing a democracy” in South Africa had all along been a veil for the true objective of completely destroying Christianity in this part of the world, an objective in which this current government is increasingly succeeding on a daily basis.
