Getting to the heart of evil

1624Christianity argues that every human heart is capable of good and evil. Every human being is capable of better and worse, right and wrong, true and false. That is a hallmark of Christian thinking (it is a hallmark of classical thinking as well)… Since we’ve jettisoned that, notice what’s happened here. Some people are pure hearted and others not. We no longer believe that everyone is capable of evil. If you’re African-American, for instance, in a university setting you cannot be racist because of the power structure is against you. If you’re poor, the 99%, you can’t be greedy—it’s only that 1%. What’s happened now that we’ve jettisoned Christianity, not only are you jettisoning the soul, not only are you jettisoning transcendence, not only are you jettisoning free will, you are also jettisoning this idea that we are all morally capable in our hearts of choosing one way or another. So we have entire demographics now who are innocent, no matter what they do, and other demographics . . . no matter what you do, if you are Caucasian, you are guilty of all this litany of sins. This is regressive. This is not progressive. This is anti-rational, it is not rational. This is racism and bigotry masquerading as progressivism.
